Blew it the past two weeks!

Thursday, October 18, 2007

Okay I've had my pity party and now it's time to get back to business! I've had two weeks of complete heck from family problems and now it's time to start to get my life back into shape. The problems are still there but I think I can cope a lot better and it's time for me to get myself back into the groove of eating healthy and living healthy.
I vow to eat right and to start back on my exercise program. I've kept up on classes and have been doing alright but now it's time to kick it in the butt. Psychology is not my thing but I need this class to get my degree, eventually.

  


Vacation

Friday, September 28, 2007


Ok I'm back from my vacation and I had a wonderful time! Met my sister that I didn't know I had and my brother came down for a visit too. A small family reunion! What a time......went swimming with the manatees, water aerobics, dining out, flea market shopping, road trip to get sick kid, just on the go the entire time! Best part was that I got rid of that dreaded plateau with a five pound loss! Even on vacation

Problems

Thursday, September 20, 2007

"All problems become smaller if you donít dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly, and it pricks you; grasp it boldly and its spines crumble.Ē

I must remember this quote I found here on Spark. I need to apply them at all times, especially when dealing with one family member. I always get the negative from them and never the positive. It's always been that way and it always will. I wish it could have never been that but it won't change so I have to to have the courage to deal with it, on MY terms.

    Good for U, Jane. That is a good quote. I also have 1 of those. I will try to apply that when dealing with these (there's actually 2) family members.
Have a great vacation!

Plateau

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Ok it's hit! The dreaded plateau....I really dislike this! It seems to have been here forever but it's only been about four weeks. I am going to change my strength exercises on Friday(as I've already done them for today) and I have started to go to water aerobics so that I've changed my cardio a little. Now what else to do????? HELP!!!!

On a previous blog I had asked myself what else I could do to feel better about myself and I found a little bit of the answer.....I started to wear a little makeup, just eyeliner and mascara but it seems to have worked for now. I never was a big makeup wearer.

    Jane, Sounds like U are doing all the right things. Have U measured lately? Maybe U have some losses there. I've been struggling where I'm @ for months, now, but I'm still losing in some parts of my body. That keeps me going & motivated. I know for myself, I haven't been doing cardio like I was prior to this stand still. Ever since my mom passing, I just don't have the get up & go like I did. I think I get it back, then I skip several days. Just hang in there, try different things, & maybe something will just click or happen. I know it's frustrating, BELIEVE ME I KNOW! But U've done great, just hang in there!

    I forgot to mention that adding the strength training is sometimes why we hit a plateau. Our body are building those lean muscles and sometimes that causes us to maintain. But in the long run the lean muscles will burn more calories after time. At least thats what they have told me... I hope thats it.
Good idea about finding an idea, like a little make up to help feel better. I remember reading somewhere that if you get dressed from head to toe, do your hair, put on a little lipstick or make up that you will feel better.

Good luck with this week.

Questions

Thursday, August 30, 2007

I have lost weight and everyone has started to notice so why am I so down on myself? I want to eat everything in sight even though I am not hungry. It's a struggle here lately to eat healthy. I want to be healthy I really do so what's my problem?
Maybe I'm dwelling on the fact that I still don't see the weight coming off? I can feel the difference though, I have more energy, seem to be able to walk more, my knees don't hurt as much, my skin is clearer and softer, I can swim better and I love the water aerobics when I can go. I also have had to buy smaller clothes, or have been given smaller ones at least . I even have a picture of me at this weight and I do look better.
I still see the fat woman I was. How do I change that? Can I? I have to try though or I won't win this battle of the bulge !

    Hi Panda :) In my relationship with my fat self, I had difficulty seeing myself in any light other than 'fat' no matter what I weighed. My self-image did not begin to shift until I whole-heartedly embraced the following question: 'How does fat serve me?' I know that can sound kind of crazy at first; however, if you can shed light on the 'positive' things fat 'gives' you, you may be able to make better choices to provide the same positives in a more beneficial and healthy way. Hope this makes sense. Love to you, Heartlight.
