Forgiveness is key!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

(I just did my blog post but it disappeared into cyberspace so I am doing it again.) I am so glad it is a three day weekend. My husband is playing gold with friend so I have the house to myself. It is a real treat. I just finished watching A League of Their Own. I have seen it but not in a long time. I briefly lived in Evansville, IN where it was filmed. I am doing well with weight loss and the healthy life style concept so far. I will soon need to start the transition into maintaining stage. That has never been my strong point. As a matter of fact it is the one part of dieting that I suck at. I think this time will be different. I know that because of Spark People. I have found it to be a tremendous resource for me while I have been losing. I know it will be the reason I can keep it off this time. It is good alone and esp. good when you need a quick pick me up from other members. I have not ever really had that. I think it will be a key component. I now understand that forgiveness of yourself is possibly the biggest part of a healthy life style. No one is perfect...certainly not me. I know I will do my best and be happy with that for once. I can now see that a true healthy life style is one that is flexible and livable. That is the only way you can truly succeed. You have to give up the concept that you make only good choices. You have to be able to participate in life and that mean the some of the time the right choice for the situation may not be the best choice for diet or exercise but the best choice for your situation. No choice will be the best at everything. That isn't even possible. You just have to decide to do your best and stick with it. I can do that!!

    You'll do fine. The difference is that this time it's not a diet but a lifestyle - and if you need help, we're all here for you. :) emoticon

Luv the Three Day Weekends!

Friday, May 28, 2010

What a difference a day makes! All of a sudden it is Friday before a 3 day weekend. Woo hoo!!!! I don't have any plans which I really like. I think I am going to take it as it comes and fly by the seat of my (smaller) pants. I did a higher intensity on my Life Cycle part of the time since I had a piece of cake yesterday. I am just plugging along working my plan and not stressing about calories. That is a completely different approach for me. So far so good. It is certainly nice to give myself a break if I make a poor choice once and a while. I don't have to be perfect. Its a good thing since I am far from perfect most of the time. I think my toe is getting a little better. The one that is badly broken with the tape splint is looking more normal. I really hope I can loose the funky shoe before the trip home to Tennessee. This thing will be no fun in the airport.

Busy, Busy, Busy

What is it about the days before a holiday weekend? Some sort of payment to the Gods of Work so we can have an extra day off I guess. Well I am making a payment in full today for having a 3 day weekend. It is going fairly fast. Hopefully tomorrow will fly by. I can really use an extra day off. Maybe I will finish cleaning out my closets. Maybe not. I think I will just play it by ear. It is a holiday after all. I must confess. I had a piece of cinnamon pudding cake. I am guessing it was probably 500 cals. It had a glaze frosting and not the really bad kind. I will just ride a little longer on my bike tomorrow or go for a walk. I would love to go tonight but it is really windy and there are some clouds rolling in. I have made some progress. I would normally have ditched the diet for at least until Sunday or Monday since I ate something I wanted and didn't plan for. Now however I am going to go home and have my salad with 4 oz chicken. I will forgive myself but I won't give myself permission to keep on eating for no reason. Good for me!

Dr. Appointments = Hurry up & Wait

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

This afternoon I go to the ortho guy about my toe. I really hope there isn't anything other than it needs more time to heal. I already have the new patient paperwork filled out. It is nice that you can print something off their web site and be able to finish it at your leisure instead of trying to do it in the office before your appointment. Speaking of my appointment...I better run (or hobble).

Back at it again on Monday!!

Monday, May 24, 2010

Well another week is gone with a new one just getting started. I hope this one is good. I hate when I get to Friday afternoon and I feel exhausted, mentally and physically. At least I can get some R&R over the weekends. I am excited about my weight loss, healthy life style and smaller sizes in clothes. I am going to the doctor tomorrow for my toe. I really want to get past the ouchy part. If it weren't for my Life Cycle I would be in big trouble. It is one of the few things that doesn't hurt my toe at all. There are a couple of the FF&FU routines that are okay but a couple others want you to stand on your tiptoes. That is not gonna happen until this thing heals. I am officially in the 150s now. I haven't seen that weight range in a decade and a half. It is kind of fun to be excited about weighing. Kind of weird too! Well here's to a great week for all the Sparkers!
