* No Title*

Thursday, May 19, 2011

I really didn't know how to title this blog, but I just needed to vent today so here goes......I really don't understand why people feel the need to make a comment on others decisions to make a change. Yesterday before I went to work a co-worker had another co-worker call me to ask if I could pick her up a salad when I buy me one, I told them yes. Well when I got to work the co-worker at work asked me if I eat salads everyday. I told her yes. She looked at me and continued to comment stating that she can't eat salads because her body doesn't digest them properly, something about making her gassy. Then another co-worker chimed in asking if there is meat on the salad, I told her no. She commented that she can't eat the salads because they have to have meat, cheese, croutons and all kinds of other stuff. My thing is that its my body, my choice, and sometimes other peoples 2cents aren't welcome. One asks are you on a diet, I said No, I am just living a healthier lifestyle....so they make comments like "Oh"looking as though a healthy lifestyle was a joke. I don't like being the highlight of attention but it was either you support or you don't preferrably if you don't then you keep your comments to self, because sometimes when people need support, they don't need your negative comments or your . I sometimes have to remind myself why I am doing this and not worry about what others say. Everyone is not going to support my healthier living, lifestyle and they may think its just a phase but its not, Its me, myself and I. I like this, I want this and I plan on making my change and goal.........

    Thank You Ladies, Yes I am glad that I have you all to talk to and vent about whats going on and I feel so much better, I will just be glad when my results become more noticeable and they will see what determination pays off to!!! I do stay positive but sometimes its like "Who asked you?" especially when people feel that their 2cents are welcomed everywhere.....I know that I am going to keep up the good work and keep moving on!!!

    I think I would have called it "Did I ask you...?" "Do I look like I care about your opinion?" "Don't want your two cents!"
"Just keep shoveling that s#$* into your own mouth..."

If they need to lose some weight also, they could just be jealous. You could also find a way to politely tell them that you don't comment on all the poison they're eating, so you'd appreciate it if they didn't ruin your appetite. It's hard to tune out ignorant people's negative comments sometimes, but you're doing great.

    Don't you wish you could just tell them to kiss your ass??!! But truthfully they act like that because they are not happy with where they are at and the only way to make them feel better about it is to downplay the importance of what you are doing. I used to be that way when I was fat and unhappy too. They want a reaction. Don't give it to them. Just keep eating your salad with a smile and then get on here and vent to us. They will eventually shut their mouths when they realize you don't care about what's coming out of it.

Good Day

Monday, May 16, 2011

I ran and walked 2 miles within 28 minutes. I need to improve on the time but its okay because I am getting back into my running mode. When I finished that I got onto the elliptical machine. I noticed that my knee started hurting some, but I know when that happens I may need more water. So I drank some water and kept on moving. I felt really good after my workout. I am going to reach my goal and I am goin to make it!!!

  


Weight Loss

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I want to lose weight, I am going to lose weighg, I am losing weight but I know that it takes hard work, dedication and strength to get through. I know that this weight issue is not gong to be changed over night and sometimes thats a hard realization, but I have to know that my strength will keep my motivated. I want to reach my goals and I am going to. I am in a catch 22 situation. I want to put a time frame on my limits but I know that at the same time I don't want to lose focus because I didn't make a weight loss goal by the number I want to accomplish my goals and not lose focus.

Just one of those days.......

Sunday, May 08, 2011

I was in the gym and I was working out, I was feeling good because I was getting further than I have been getting and that's important to me and I know that change doesn't happen over night, but I am getting to a point where change is going to need to come more often to prevent a plateau. I had a moment where within that good feeling , my mind went to that feeling of chastising. My mind wants to know why did I get to this point and why its taking so long. However we all know easier to gain than to lose. I really want to accomplish my goals and make some progress. I know that weight loss is hard, it takes dedication, commitment and planning. I know that staying motivated will help me to make better changes than those of negative thoughts. However I also know that some days this is easier said than done. This week, I plan to wake up every morning with a plan and I need to take my moments and self motivate myself, I have been planning every day to eat right, my days to cheat once a week yet I want to change this to be a meal where I can have what I want to have and not go overboard, but to throw my body off of the normal plan and yet still see results. I only want to cheat one breakfast one day a week and a lunch one day a week. Not dinner because its too late in the day and I want lighter meals at the end of the day and to keep working on me. I want to add self motivation in. I plan on creating my motivation poster this week. Take a moment to reflect on it etch day and also stay motivated on my progress. For every negative thought put it into a box but then put up two positive stickies to tune that out......... Maybe one day go back and see the negatives I don't know if I want them present or not, but I know that sometimes turning them back into a positive will make things better. I have to do this for me, I know that you are doing this for you.......working together and

  


Upset stomach

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Yesterday I had a cheat day! Breakfast I had 3 chicken minis, yum good, with fruit, lunch I had some green beans and turkey so that was a healthy meal, my snack was a yogurt and then for dinner, I couldn't decide on what I wanted to eat so I ended up eating pancakes, eggs and bacon. Needless to say that it didnt' agree with me and now my tummy is aching bad......So back to my 17 day plan today! Gotta get right.

    Gabby, you are right, before I had acid reflux too, alongside slooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwww weight loss and since I have started it, I actually don't feel as though my food weigh as heavy within me as it did and I also feel as though my food doesn't bog me down and I feel lighter. I think my cheat days will now be a cheat moment, but definitely before 2 p.m. and I don't want to overdue it.
