Trying to find the motivation....

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

...just to get out of bed! My husband is out of town...I don't work today .... but, I have taxes to work on ...the house to clean...and a workout ...for some reason I cant talk myself into doing any of them. I have been awake now for almost 4 hours and I have even left my bedroom emoticon I am less than 5 pounds away from Onderland and I only have 10 pounds until I am half way bettween my highest weight and my goal weight! The scale finally moved 1 pound why is it so hard to get something done emoticon tell me why. Even my poor dogs are looking at me like really this is what we are doing today emoticon

    It is hard to get the motivation when it's so darn cold outside. I just do it as soon as I wake up, before I can talk myself out of it.

    You are in the same boat as I was yesterday. If you're struggling with the fact that you aren't doing anything today, then maybe you should just accept it and relax. There's nothing wrong with a lazy day. But, as a Spark Friend told me yesterday, don't let it turn into two!

Enjoy it! And congrats on the additional pound lost! Woo hoo!

Two new goals this week

Sunday, January 20, 2013

This week I am going to track my water intake..... emoticon although water is all I drink .. I don't think I'm getting my 14 glasses a day (112 oz ).

Second I am going to do 10 flights of stairs each day.
( I will be using my Fitbit to track it). emoticon

Hopefully these two things will get my ticker moving and will keep me on my 31 day streak! emoticon

    Those are good goals. I have steps at home and if I walk up them, it will count as one floor. Also, walking outside on some hills will count too. Every 10 ft. in elevation equals one floor.

That's a lot of water!! You can do this, I know it! Today is day TWENTY!! Only 10 more days to go until we've hit our first 30 day streak!! Woo hoo! emoticon

    Wow, where are these flights of stairs?
I have a stationary bike which I love! I do have stairs in my home, but just take them when necessary. I have them at work too, but this semester I've rarely ahd call to use them, working on one floor. Plus I do tend to baby my knees as I deal with arthritis. I get strengthening exercises in other ways.
But go for it! emoticon And God bless you on your journey to a healthy lifestyle!

Trying to hang on!

Friday, January 18, 2013

I am soooo frustrated right now....all I ask for is 2 pounds a week...I have created a -7000 calorie deficit so what is the problem? The only thing that is keeping me from saying screw it and regretting it later is watching my friends ticker go down! emoticon

    Make sure you are eating ENOUGH of the RIGHT THINGS... our bodies are miraculous and wonderfully made and they will work even if we don't feed them. They work to not allow us to starve so make sure you are eating enough of the nutritious stuff.

AND, think on this... if you only lost 1/2 a lb a week, in a year you would be 26 lbs down!!!

    Remember that every body is different and reacts differently. You know what you are doing and you're doing everything right. It just takes time. Slow and steady wins the race. You got this.

    I understand your frustration. I've been practically killing myself to only have the scale move 4.8 lbs in nearly 8 weeks. But hang in there. I've heard over and over that the loss is slow at first but will catch up if we continue to do the right things. Plus I DO have more energy - do you? And I feel better mentally and the scale IS moving down. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    How are you creating your deficit? Are you meeting your minimum nutritional needs? Remember, your body needs to know it'll get what it needs to survive in order to let go of the excess. If it doesn't get what it needs, it'll think it's starving and hold on to everything.

If something's not working, change it up. Drink more water, take more steps, change your workout routine.

Don't give up! You can do this!

    I hear you! My first week back on spark, I was going down every day. Now the scale doesn't want to move. But we can't give up. The scale isn't the only way to tell that what you are doing is working. Notice how your clothes fit, or how you feel when you exercise. You may not lose anything this week but next week, there could be a jump of 3 pounds or more. That's how I'm looking at it. As long as I keep moving and watching what I eat, this weight has nowhere to go but off of me. emoticon

    You can do this! I can't see your sodium levels, but you mentioned once that you've had trouble keeping your sodium levels down. Do you think that could be it? Keep moving like you're doing, keep eating within your ranges, and it will eventually move. You know how this works. Just try to make it to your 30 day streak mark. See what happens between now and then. There are many other benefits going on besides what you're seeing on the scale!

I'm tierd of being tested!

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I have my day all laid out and my food logged but, the scale is being mean and I just found out I have to add "taking my dog to the vet" to my list which is causing me a lot of stress....I feel like I'm always their ....and every time I go it's another $1000.00 ... I love my fur pets very much and I hate when things oldest turned 11 this year...he's the one I'm taking ...he appears to have Ear hematomas which will require surgery! emoticon

    He's so cute, I love his little beard! I'm sorry you have to deal with this today. You have been tested a lot lately and you have come out on top every time! You should be very proud of yourself. You are still on track. Take care of your dog and yourself today, and let the other things slide. It will all be there tomorrow. You're a strong did this once before remember?

    Good luck to you and your dog. I'm sorry the day isn't shaping up the way you want. It gets tougher as pets get older. I hope all goes well. Hang in there!

    I'm sorry that you and your pup are having a bad day. I have four dogs myself, so I know what you mean about feeling like you are always at the vet!

I hope your dog is doing better soon!
