New Year - New Beginings

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

I'm MOTIVATED to win this battle this time....I know what I need to do...I know what I wasn't doing before and I know that is the reason I did not find success.

I got up a t 5:30am this morning and was on the treadmill by 6am. I did just about 30 minutes but had to stop because Jaidin was coming at 6:30am. I wanted to do more but I also know that if I don't start slow I will not be as likely to stick with this. Tomorrow I will shoot for 35 minutes!

    Hey there...the best thing to do is to go slow. Be patient with yourself, those pounds will start to come off. This is a new year we can do this. Remember your not alone in this. You have friends here and we want you to succeed.
Be patient with yourself and reward yourself no matter how small the accomplishment may seem.

Reality Check...

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

Well after 3 long months of doing just horribly with my eating and doing absolutely no exercise I finally have had my second "moment" of clarity. Last night after I came up stairs from working ( I work from home) it was 9pm and my husband was sitting in the living room watching TV, I went right to the freezer and got myself a heaping bowl of ice cream and sat down to enjoy...my husband looked at me and said "What do youj think your doing?" "What??" I said back to him with more than a hint of irritation in my voice. This is what he said to me: "It is so irrisponsible for you to sit there 50 plus ounds over weight and think that it's okay for you to eat a bowl of ice cream at 9pm at night, you have two beautiful children to think about and the way your weight is going up these days you are putting your self at risk for not being around for them and leaving me to raise them by myself" I was SO MAD that he would say something like that to me! I work hard all day and if I want to have a bowl of ice cream at the end of the night well jeeze don't I deserve it?! I muttered something sarcastic under my breath and I stomped off to bed...laying there silently and brimming with anger I began to sob...I sobbed because I knew what my husband was telling me was the truth, I sobbed because I want to care enough about myself and my family to be healthy and I sobbed because I was angry at myself for letting myself get to this point again. Finally I fell asleep and the next morning my eyes popped open at 5am which is very unusl for me...I'm not a morning person and I hate to get up early...but my eyes popped open and it was like something took over my body because before I knew it I was up, putting on my sneakers and heading for the treadmill. I used my HRM and put in 30 minutes of walking....at 5:30am!!! I have NEVER in my life ( or atleast not in the last 10 years) exercised at 5:30am...but it felt so good...it felt SO GOOD to accomplish something like that...I ate a healthy breakfast, took a shower and here I am...ready to succeed this time.

  


Been having trouble...

Thursday, November 09, 2006

Well that is an understatment! Not sure why I'm having such a problem with the lack of motivation but OMG it's been bad. I think maybe a daily blog entry will help keep me accountable....today so far I've done great, sensible breakfast and lunch and planning a sensible dinner that will keep me in my calorie range. Exercise is a must, I've lost all the wonderful muscle t one that I built up this summer because I've been slacking so bad.

Goals for the rest of today:

Stay in calorie range
45 minutes cardio
30 minutes strength training

    Hi...sometimes its hard to keep the motivation going but theres ways you can get it restarted -

1)Pamper yourself - give yourself sometime just for you. When you look in the mirror love yourself, congratulate yourself on the accomplishments you have made so far - look at your progress.

2)Do something special for you. Are you rewarding yourself for your progress? If not, do. Your worth it!

3)Set new mini goals for December...mini...baby steps

4)Remember weight loss is like a journey and somedays there are going to be rough spots along the way, bumps, roadblocks, etc. you work your way around them. In weightloss you work your way through them.

Good Luck to you!

Another Try

Thursday, September 21, 2006

Today being a brand new day is another opportunity for me to get back "on the wagon" I've been trying for the last few days but haven't had any consistent success. I need to get serious again and realize that I NEED to do this for my kids and my husband but most importantly for MYSELF. I need to do something that makes myself proud to be me, something hard that takes dedication and committment - t wo things I think I've lacked all my life. I'm going to try again today, today is the day that I'm going to do it I just know it. I am beautiful, smart, funny, caring, loving and I am WELL WORTH the effort it takes to get healthy. It is the best gift I can give to myself and my girls. I AM GOING TO DO IT!
