Changes aren't always the same........

Friday, June 08, 2007

Okay yesterday I was thinking of doing my weigh ins more often. I posted that I would do it on the 1st and the 15th, however giving it more thought, I am not going to do that. I plan on sticking with my weigh in on the 1st of the month. I was thinking about how I have been doing it so far and I plan on continue doing my weigh in on the same date of every month. I dont want to step on the scale too often.

The changes I do plan on making for this coming week include, drinking more of my water, I haven't been able to get in all of my water. Working out for 45 minutes a day instead of my plan working out 30/60/90. I am going to accomplish my goal.s I know I am I am DETERMINED!!!

    Hang in there girl, sometimes you have to play around with things to see what will work best for you. I have faith in you that whatever you decide that you will succeed.

Change in Plans

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

I think now that with me feeling the way I was feeling earlier this week, its time for me to recreate my plans. I plan to start weighing in 2x's a month and working on a new plan for my weight loss. I have come too far to give up, and definitely don't plan on gaining any of this back.

    Why give up? Giving up is hard work. Continue to press on.

Struggling.........

Monday, June 04, 2007

Okay, I hit my half way mark then all of a sudden this struggle came upon me. I cannot say why? I went to the gym today, I worked out for 33 minutes. I figure I can turn this around by using it as my Saturday workout plan and on Saturday do my 60 minute work out plan. I have no idea why I have the snack attack today. I have been munching away. I didn't drink my water like I am supposed to. I am just having a bad day food and exercise wise. I am not giving up on me trust me, I have just hit one of those days, I gave into it, but believe you, me that I am going to get through this. Because right now, I am not saying tomorrow, but right now, I am going to drink some water, pray, review my goals, my reasons why, my accomplishments, and stride for a better season. I know that I dont want to get on the scale and be up instead of down. I have worked too hard to get this far and I am not going out like that. I am going to win this battle. I have no idea why I am going through this right now. I need to re-evaluate some things. I have to focus and get things in order. I am going to continue doing this. I have to, no other choice. I am going to achieve this goal. I CAN DO THIS, I CAN DO THIS, I CAN DO THIS, I AM NOT A QUITTER, I AM A WINNER!!!

    I'm in the same boat. I lost my motivation to keep eating healthy and excercise. I was walking close to 10 miles a day. Now I'm down to about 5. I'm stressed. I am not looking forward to the scale.

    Who said you were a quitter?!!? ~shadow boxing~ I'll get ' em!

This is all part of the journey, dear. Every day isn't gonna be a perfect eating day or a perfect water-drinking day or a perfect exercise day. We're regular mortals, just plain ol' human beings and not Stepford Wives! The trick is to try and make sure days like today are the exception and not the norm. You can do this. You ARE doing it!!

  Binges come in spurts, but they don't last long... unless we welcome them and force them to stick around. It too is passing, so don't wait or beat yourself up, just get out of the boat the water is fine

Do you ever worry??

Sunday, June 03, 2007

Okay, here it goes, I was watching a show on tv today on TLC channel, and seeing these people who have to go to a clinic called Brookhaven, to lose weight was very heart wrenching. I see these people who are so heavy that they were having sleep apnea, diabetes, leg sores, and other ailments, yet they were still sneaking food. Calling all kinds of fast food places that deliver to bring them food to a clinic. It was crazy. I worry sometimes that I may not make it to my goal, I worry that life will get to busy for me that I may not make it, I may not finish it, I worry that I will get too comfortable again and may lose sight of my accomplishments thus far. I worry that I may one day look and be back at square one. I look at my problem with food before and think that was my addiction. Being so proud that I never had problems with drugs or alcohol, turn out mine was FOOD. Ughhhhhhhh. I know this is just the negative part of me trying to throw me off my goals, and I am not supposed to let if phase me, and I dont plan on it. I do plan to keep going from here on out. I will make it. I will continue my stride. I dont know why on today, did I start thinkng about the WHat if's??? I am workng this very moment to change that to a date. I am going to reach my goal weight before the end of this year. I know I will, I am going to have to work hard and stop letting things get me down. I can do it. I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.......................

    I am glad I came to your page and read this blog because I understand. I read 15-30 minutes of excercise is better than none at all.

    Girl, yes you can and you already have!! That would be the enemy trying to keep you from pursuing the promised land. Health is in order, and worth having and fighting for. I know that show made you want to go and run or do some tae bo... But hang in there. you have done awesome and when you start to contemplate slipping back just remember this long laborious and tedious process, do you want to do this all over again... I didn't think so...

    Red:
Use the goal setter on your start page. Plug in your current weight, then your goal weight. Then tell the calculator how much you want to lose each week and it will give you a goal date.

Abuse!

Saturday, June 02, 2007

Neglect was the charge. Failure to eat the proper foods, failure to exercise on a daily basis, failure to maintain a healthy weight, YOU MY FRIEND have been CHARGED WITH "NEGLECT" OMG!!!! I was abusing my own self!!! I was guilty as charged. Now I am paying the consequences by serving my sentence. It's okay because I had a corrective action plan.......

#1. Take it slow, look at my current habits and see what I need to change.

#2. Research, trial and error periods are common to see what works and what doesn't.

#3. Don't be discouraged, the weight didn't come on overnight it definitely won't leave overnight although we wish it was that way.

#4. I would say find a partner but you have to do what works for you, My partners are here on BBQ, but I workout everyday by myself. I guess you could say the people I see that are regulars at the gym are my partners we wave and say hello and keep on moving. Plus I have to go when I can due to my work schedule and my daughters school schedule.

#5 Journal, journal, journal, and be active on the message boards it helps to talk about what we are going through, as we move along through our journey and it helps us to see what was keeping us down, or what keeps us moving. We help support and uplift on the downfalls and the high points of this embark.
