Learning from the past.

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Today I am taking a day of rest : o /
In the past I worked out hard every day then flopped with fatigue... Burned out within a short time.
I have decided to try and learn from my past and that means looking at what I did wrong before and evaluate everything possible even what I think is a positive step cuz some times what I think is a good thing is not always the best.
I looked at what has derailed me in the past and come up with a list of ....
emoticonillness ie chest / head colds that linger,
emoticonlack of time to work out like I had planned ie an hour of cardio then some strength training everyday - switching target areas each day
emoticon and well my eating especially around busy busy days (too much take out and processed foods.
I am kinda nervous though taking a day off today. Afraid to lose momentum!! So if you don't see me again for a while fire off an e-mail or something to get my attention and kick my butt back to the right track. emoticon

Ever feel like a hamster running on a wheel?

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Ever feel like a hamster running on a wheel? Going through like at a break neck speed and yet getting no where. Life is so full of chaos that it is difficult to see you are even moving. So much time and energy wasted and regrets building up. I feel trapped on my wheel of chaos in life and family and can't find my way off the wheel or even a way to slow the wheel down. I love my family and my job and almost everything in my life but the demands are overwhelming at times. Just when I thing I can work in time and energy for exercise something "pops" up and makes another hill for my wheel to rush down. I try to make "ME" a priority but then so many other things get lost in the shuffle and jump up down the road to trip me up. I know what needs to be done - taking time for meal preparations, exercise, work and family time. Even combining these things doesn't allow me time to get everything done or if I find the time my energy is generally long gone missing. Today I feel I need to try again starting tomorrow morning so tonight I am doing some prep work to get ready. Tomorrow it is back on the wheel and try my best. emoticon

    I just want to encourage you. Don't let being the only woman in the house get your down. Maybe you need to ask everybody to help you share in the chores and to participate in your goals too.

It sounds like you feel like your are meeting everybody elses needs and no time for you. Maybe them that eats should help and love you by helping more.

I know you're expected to be superwoman. But, it's hard when you didn't really sign on for that job without even a support person in sight.

I'm glad to support you hrough the computer. Have a good night and keep sparking.

Surviving weight loss thru colds and does Cold Fx work??

Saturday, January 17, 2009

emoticon I have been fighting this same sinus cold for over 3 weeks now, even have an ear infection and have both big toes infected and started on antibiotic for everything but am still under the weather. At the start of my cold I pressed on and continued with my 2 hrs of cardio everyday but as the time pasted and the cold got worse I took some days off and rested but that doesn't seem to have helped. Now I am sleepy all the time and afraid of gaining back the few pounds I have lost so far. I am thankful I have continued to loose weight even with my time off but am very frustrated with this cold and my decreased energy. Doctor states it is just a bad virus going around and that time will heal me but until then I just have to put up with it. Any suggestions out there to help me get back on my feet??? One of my friends suggested Cold Fx but I have not heard too much about it and am leary of trying something new without input from many others.


I am worried of eating out tonight.

Try not to strave yourself during the day. When you go out. Try to ea baked food and veggies.
I don't know what type of nutrition plan you're on but...Balance is important. Also will you have a choice in where to go? If so you can check out their menu online and also call to fnd out calories. Remember to exercise at some point.

But most importantly ENJOY your birthday! It only comes around once a year. You don't want to spend the day in panic or uptight mode. Also, I'm sure your family and friends want the best for you. Just let them know how you're feeling and allow them the opportunity to support you the way that you need!

Take care, be encouraged & be blessed!

Shift work - epecially nights

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

I am finding shift work (especially nights) makes it hard to diet and exercise properly and keep straight logging food and exercise in. This week I have switched from straight days to 3 midnights and finding it hard. I eat no lunch because I am sleeping through that time but have 2 snack times. And energy is hard to come by! In some ways I look at it as I am getting to stay within my calorie range better then usual but am lacking energy to work out in the evening. I am proud of my self for riding my stationary bike for 1.5 hrs while watching "Biggest Loser". Not sure how I am suppose to live up to the "Don't eat after 8PM" challenge but am not sweating it as long as I am exercising at least 1/2 hr or more. One of the Biggest Loser" contestants from last season stated she worked out a minimum of 4 hours a day to keep up her weight loss so I have kinda chosen to attempt 2 hrs per day if work, family and energy allow!! That is my goal for now as I wanna get more bathing suit ready then I am right now!!
