life is all about choices... guess you might think that i am being all "philoshopical" and all but, i know this to be true, and Joel Osteen reminded me of this again, on Sunday...

every day, i have the choice to have a good day, or a bad day. i have the choice to be happy or grumpy. i have the choice to face the world positively or negatively. i have the choice how i react to my circumstances. lately, i have been CHOOSING to be negative. i gotta STOP that!

so, i am choosing to be POSITIVE. it is 8:10 am and i already have baked a cake, done dishes, clean kitchen and dining room and living room. i am going to work out in about half an hour, i am going to PT for my back today, i am going to spend time with gregg today, i get to teach karate tonight and i get to do karate tonight! i am healthy, i have a great family, husband, kids, i have a wonderful home, food, friends, job, pets, i am getting more fit and in shape everyday and this is just the tip of the iceberg! i am blessed!

i am knowledgeable about health and fitness. i know how to get where i need to be physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually... i am on my way!

i choose to be a winner! emoticon

fell off the wagon!

Sunday, April 19, 2009

boy, i fell off the wagon... HARD! i am so disappointed with myself. i really thought that i might have conquered the self-saboteur... nope! not yet. over these past few days, i have gone WAY over board, not even tracking myself. today, i went NUTS...

i do plan on getting back on, but it... no i mean, I.... suck! i gotta move on, get back on... one day off is okay every now and then, but it wasn't even that, it was like THREE days! including all my comfort foods of PIZZA and COLDSTONE ice cream!

i can do this...

ugh. i am TWO punds heavier than last week! i am SO dissappointed in myself! i know that i did eat a little more, but i worked out like a wild woman! what would have happened if i didn't work out??? gregg seems to think that it is because of all the stress that i have been under this past week. and i DID learn on biggest loser, that stress can and DOES effect weight... to the point of, you can work out A LOT and still gain weight... well, that is certainly true... i was under i huge amount of stress, but still! i am so upset... truly. it is very discouraging....

it was very evident in yoga last night. gosh, talk about "mind chatter"! i couldn't even concentrate on what hollywood was having us do, and i definitely was not in the zone to do the poses!

guess i need to work on relaxation, and i need to exercise more and eat less calories.... um-m-m-m-m... can we say, DUH!" ???? each one of those things i KNOW, come on, snap out of it, no excuses... remember, "winners accept no excuses!" "winners train, losers complain!" AND ... "winners simply have adopted the habits losers don't like to do"

get back up on the horse! get back up on the motorcycle! i can lose the two pounds i gained and at least another pound by next week...


reality???? BITES!!!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

okay... i am confused... i have different perceptions of myself... NEITHER are accurate... first is that i look like i am 200 pounds... i feel like i do, and in my mind i look like i am... i am not 200 pounds...

then, sometimes i feel like i am looking pretty good... also, NOT reality! EEKS! yesterday, i watched, "How to bring it" it is the first DVD in the p90x series. it tells you to take pictures of yourself... so, you have a before and after picture. let's just say, after seeing the pictures gregg took for me... I AM HORRIFIED!!! i don't even feel worthy to wear the jeans that i am wearing now (my favorite size 10 jeans)...

so, for the record, i weigh 160.5 pounds today, yes, i know that i have 159.5 pounds written for my tracker, but give or take a pound, i am roughly that... pictures of myself are on the desktop, entitled, "reality". it has two others that were taken a couple of months ago, but they really do not show my body... boy, i do NOT look happy in ANY of these pictures...

so, we will say weight is 160 pounds

chest: 38 inches

waist: 33 1/2 inches

stomach: 38 inches

hips: 41 1/2 inches

thigh (L): 24 inches

thigh (R) 24 inches

calf (L): 15 inches

calf (R): 15 inches

arm (L): 13 inches

arm (R): 13 inches

the positive (if there is one) is that i am balanced. for a long time, one side of my body was bigger than the other. i think it was because of my injured knee. so, i am happy that i am balanced.

NOW, to get to work! i have decided that karate will NOT count as my work out! so, i need to work out 6 of the 7 days, to get in the habit of working out. it has to be scheduled like work. i HAVE to go to work, so i HAVE to work out. i just have to think about what routines to do...

  I understand completely and am right there with you! Time to commit to some sort of exercise EVERY DAY. I can't half-ass it. I can't make any more excuses.

The time is now!

i worked out very hard, why don't i feel like it?

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

i did biggest loser cardio work out, level 1 & 2. and i also did the biggest loser sculpt. i was sweating like a mad woman. it felt good, and i did 1 and a half minutes of plank, and i did a whole bunch of push-ups...

it is almost 8 pm, and i don't feel great... i feel okay, and i only went over my calories by 10... i felt better earlier, so much so that i put on some size 10 pants, and a form fitting top... but i am not feeling it now...

what is wrong with me? i am working out, and i am eating better... it is beginning to show... i am seeing the results, my husband is also... why am i feeling like this???
