Ready for the weekend!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Nothing new to add today. Still up on my weight but I know it is a temporary thing, hormonal or water maybe sodium related. I made it a lot farther than I usually do before my body rebelled. I wish I could tell it to shape up and smack it in the back of the head. Somebody needs to. It is so crazy at work I am constantly fighting not to stress eat. I will be glad when this is over. It really over shadows the rest of my life. I am so thankful for the weekends when no one needs anything. I just do my thing, a little laundry, a little exercise, a little this, a little that. I can survive as long as that is there. My shinning two days are a total blessing. The rest is just a matter of surviving and trying to figure out a way to prosper again. It is a whole new world and some trial and error is necessary I suppose. If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger or so everyone says. I don't plan on letting work kill me but no one ever does. I am sure it will calm down or I will figure out some other way. Here is to the hope of a good hump day!

Five Days Worth of Work in Four Days

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

Well back to work. I am really tired for some reason. I think the extra day off felt really short and that made me feel tired. I got pretty good sleep but the weekend just flew by. I will be glad when everything settles down in my life (at least a little). I am up 3.2 pounds this morning but I am still exercising and working my plan. I know it is down to the last 10-12 pounds and my body will fight me tooth and nail. That is absolutely nothing new. By the time I get this close it is determined to stop losing. I am not buying it this time. I can continue at this as long as it takes and beyond. I like fitting in smaller sizes and looking like a normal person and not an overweight nice lady. How rude. Well I am going to get back at it. I have 5 days of work to cram into 4 days. I am already looking forward to next weekend!

Three Day Weekend Over.....:(

Monday, July 05, 2010

Another lovely three day weekend almost over. They go by so fast. I really didn't get much accomplished. I did get a little rest. I am back on track with the dietary portion of my plan. I am not as strict as I have been in the past. I don't want to get discouraged. It just makes it that much harder not to quit. I am not going to quit but it is always nice for things to be going well enough that it isn't even a passing thought. I went for a pedicure this afternoon. My toe that I broke didn't even twinge so I suppose it is healed. I am never going to do that again (if I can help it). It hurt for weeks until it healed. I continued doing my exercises but my form was questionable at best on a couple of the moves. I am going to wrap it up and plan this weeks lunches for work. I find that it is a little easier if I have it in my head what I am having. There seems to be less temptation that way.

    Were you exercising in the heels that are pictured here? (smiling) I thought that's how you hurt your toe. I just packed up 10 pair of new shoes for charity. My bad angel was argueing with my good angel, "but maybe you'll wear them someday." (smiling) I've been a shoe person as well, but less so these days. No more hurt toes, okay?

Time to pay the piper!

Sunday, July 04, 2010

I knew there would be a pound or two to pay for my indulgences last week. I always make my official weight day one of the weekend days. I sleep late those day so my weight is at it's lowest. Well not yesterday or today. I am not upset about it really. I knew exactly what I was doing. I did learn a couple things.
1. I didn't feel very good physically after I overate or ate fudge.
2. I almost immediately asked myself, "What the hell are you doing?"
3. I knew there would be a price to pay but it didn't seem to matter at that point.
I have been an emotional eater my entire life. I just went and found a team to join to address this. It will help having others who face the same challenge but ultimately I have to beat this alone. This is as close as I have come to an addictive disorder. I suppose it is. My other addiction is much more fun....shoes. This one I am going to address head on. The shoes....I enjoy that addiction too much to let it go. Hey I have to keep some vice!!

Hello Holiday Weekend

Saturday, July 03, 2010

I am so glad it is a three day weekend. It has been a rough year at work and I am extremely grateful for any day away from the office. I was not very strict this week week with calories. I had a bad week in that regard. I am not upset about it. I am 50 and will have more than one week or so with not so smart eating over the next few years. I am okay with that. I did do all of my exercise plan this week. I am going to be especially diligent when it comes to that if my dietary goals are a little off. It is a more holistic approach to my life than I have tried before. I am trying to figure this all out as I go instead of waiting until I am at goal and failing again. That is something I have always known but never applied until now. Maybe it is Spark People or being older and not wanting to do this again in a year or so. Either way I am going to do it this time. I have always needed to and that never was enough. I have always wanted to and that wasn't enough either apparently. Now is my time. I know it and I am going to do it. Life is a highway. I'm gonna ride it. (Tom Cochrane song lyrics)
