Strange thinking

Tuesday, October 24, 2006

I'm finding myself going to the bigger section to buy clothes. It's hard for me to "see" that I'm size 6 again. I buy my tops large and they are too big. So, I'm starting to really watch myself on this and keep telling myself to try it on before purchasing. It feels great to look into a mirror and not be so critical. It's like I have to retrain my brain from saying somthing negative to giving myself a pat on the back for all the hard work I put into being healthy again. I make it "my" time every morning to log into this site and do my nutrition tracker, fitness tracker, inform myself with knowledge in reading the articles, and my favorite part is to post on the sites where I have made some great new friends. It's helped me in more ways that I have time to mention here. Now that I have my weight in control I want to venture out and get a job again. I'm finding my heart beats really fast when I go on the interviews. I guess practice will help with that. Wish me luck. This is really taking me out of my comfort zone.


Where luck comes from

Friday, October 13, 2006

I have a strong belief in God. It has helped me several times. I think the thought and words we put out there really makes a difference in our lives. I do think we need to actively put the plan in motion however if we have negative thoughts I think we are more likely to have negative outcomes. It's really important to make the steps and to put positive thoughts out there. I have had plenty of experiences from practicing this. Also if something painful does come up I want to gain something helpful out of the whole experience so the pain won't be a waste of my time. It's worked for me and I consider myself pretty lucky!


Worrying is a waste of time

Sunday, October 08, 2006

I agree with today's article. If something is bugging me then I want to make a plan of action regarding it. If it is something I can't control then I just pray about it and put it in God's hands. It works for me. Getting a job has been on my mind. I know I will enjoy it once I start but I'm so nervous. It's been a long time since I've been in the work force but I want to help with getting these bill's paid off and now that Brian is back in regular school I do have the time. Keep me in prayer! I've got to make a plan of action!


I'm thankful

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

I'm thankful that I have a healthy body and I can work out. I have so many things in my life to be greatful for. I've been blessed. Reading the journal today helped me to focus on that and I want to challenge myself to go out of my comfort zone and see what goes from there. The sky is the limit!


Feeling blue

Monday, October 02, 2006

Today my buddy moved away. She was one of those rare friends that is more like family then a friend. She was my work out buddy and someone that I can bounce ideas off of. I'm really going to miss her. It's hard for me to make friends. I'm pretty shy. I've been like that for a long time. I guess it's something more I can work on. With every hurt there is a lesson to be learned. I guess I have some growing to do.
