What stops me?

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Yesterday KATMOMMA3 added a question for me to ask myself.

What stops me?
Of course I know the answer to that one. FEAR!
Fear of the unknown.
Fear of the unfamiliar.
Fear of the not knowing what I am doing.

Leaving the familiar is a bit scary, but I know that the rewards for venturing forward are great. Not knowing what actions to take, keeps me going around in circles. Having direction and setting goals helps set me on a path.

Today, I am working on getting info so I can define my goals

    Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.

Stalling will never get you to where you want to be.

Step out Nancy. Leap of faith

Preparation

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

It is not good to be stuck in this stage, but I do not want to go into this without a plan.
Setting goals will help me get to where I want to go.
Answering:
Where do I want to be?
How to get there?
How to stay there?

I'm working on the "how to get there" part, especially the nutritional part. I think I have found what works for me as far as exercise and come to understand that everything changes over time because our ability changes over time.

Fueling my body properly is my current challenge to address. Getting carbs, sodium, cholesterol and whatever else defined will help me set my goals.

Because of SP I have increased my intake of fruits and veggies, but more work needs to be done and I can do it!

    You forgot one question to ask yourself: What stops me? Answer this one first and the other questions are easy to answer.

Normal?

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Besides being just a setting on the washer, I have come to the conclusion that everyone's normal is different.
That said, being up at 3a.m. is not normal for me, things are still kind of messed up and I'm still on kind of an emotional high from my son's wedding.
The only thing that I haven't liked was yesterday I finally looked at some of the pictures from the wedding. UGH!!!! I really did not like seeing myself at my highest weight. (I will post a picture eventually) The good news is I am still smoke free and now can work on the meal plan and eating issues I have. Thankfully I have been going to the pool 4 nights a week, otherwise I would hate to see how much I would have gained if I wasn't going.

Anyway, I am not on the pity pot, I am determined to make changes in my life, and figure out how to get there, I have an appointment with my doctor, hopefully he will help me and I plan on getting specific nutritional targets from a dietitian.
I will find my new normal. emoticon

What's behind door number...

Monday, August 03, 2009

Often we do not realize that we have a choice. Every moment we get to choose.
For every choice we make there is an effect. Some effects are positive, some negative, it depends on the choice we make.

    Every second of every day we choose between Love and fear. Those are the only choices we have. What we experience is the result of what we have choosen to prove.

Look forward to where you want to go.

Sunday, August 02, 2009

The journey of our lives often present forks in the road. As we choose a fork and move forward, the other fork is no longer an option. Don't look back.

Look forward to where you want to go.

    Good advice about not looking backwards. Too much of our sadness comes from doing just that, instead of looking forward at possibilities. Thanks for the reminder.

    Quantum mechanics blows the heck out of this....LOL

I do agree that our decisions are adventures no matter which road we are on.
