I don't know why some things irritate me so.

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

It's been a while since I have blogged, but I need to change something...last couple years didn't gain all my weight back, but enough to notice. I allowed life situations to get to me. Should have been down 30 lbs 9/2...but it came and went. So what am I gonna do...get right back on the horse. Make a new goal! Not looking at it as failure..but a renewed committment. I've done before...and I can do it again!

With that said, I was interupted while talking with a friend today. We are recommitting excersice together. This other person comes out of the blue and says "what your problem is, you think about it too much! If you would just stop thinking about it, you will lose it". OK, I was happy that worked for her, but for me, if I ignore, it gets worse!!! I like making small goals, achieving them and feeling accomplished. Sometimes, even treating myself when I meet certain goals. So here I am, back on SP because that is what works for me.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words!!! I have stuck to excersie since I wrote this post!!! Am I as disciplined as I was with myself in the past?? No, but one foot in front of the other. I started our all this with just doing "something" 10 minutes a day!!!!

    I wish I could not think about it, but then I would let myself eat way too much. I accepted that this is forever and every day I need to make the right choices or I'll weigh 200 lbs easy. I do take a day off here or there and that's okay. Besides, I have 3 kids I need to be able to keep up with and I can only do that if I'm at a healthy weight. Sounds like you have a plan and are ready to go. emoticon

    Not thinking about it is how I got to the heaviest weight I'd ever been. I think that might not be the way to go...

Good for you, taking the approach that works for you. emoticon

    I can't just not think about it, either. Well... I can, but I gain weight like I'm getting paid for it. I have to think about it, bordering obsession, to make any progress.

Anyway, poop on her. Hope you have a great day tomorrow!

    Do what works for you. I am in the same boat as you so I know how you feel. I can't forget. My success came from planning and tracking. You can do it! emoticon

    Just do what you know will work for you and forget what she said.

Tried Zumba for the 1st time!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Well, I am glad to say that I've tried something new for this year. Thanks to the girls at work, I decided to try Zumba with them. I had no idea what to expect and my body definately feels it now, but I'm glad I did as I've used muscles I haven't been using in a while and it went quick and was a lot of fun. I tend to get bored with the same old.

So for now I think I'm gonna committ to at least once a week for these winter months.

    emoticon I have Zumba for the Wii and it is an awesome work out!!! Although I recently purchased a 70" TV and when they connected everything up, I can't get the TV to the AV channel so therefore I can't play the Wii or watch the Blu-Ray. emoticon

So Pumped for 2012!!!!

Monday, January 02, 2012

I feel so blessed....2011 started horrible but ended so wonderfully for me!!!! Yep...gained some weight back but maybe for the first time ever, I am not looking at is as defeat but I recognize triggers I have. Hubby made me buy a new workout tape for the New Year and I absolutely love it...I try and watch what we spend but I needed a pick me up for not gaining all my previous weight loss back and wanted to give myself a treat for starting new!!!

Was it hard putting on my current weight...yep...but I had to be honest with myself and I am so glad because I love the feeling when I can put the declining weight on my tracker!!!

One thing that also pleasantly surprised me was that I also did my inches and some areas barely changed and the others aren't too far off to where I was before???? Wouldn't that be an awesome surprise!!! Just gotta keep the priorities in check and just remember to Love God, Love People and Serve the World...and that Love also means loving myself!!!


Now for the Superbowl Party.

Saturday, February 05, 2011

Oh my, what a week or so it's been. Since I started my new job a little over six months ago, I have been going through one bout after another of infections, flu, etc. I have always worked with the public and do not know what it is. I've even had allergy test done to see if there is something I'm allergic to at my new job, but to no avail. My fever that had gotten as high as 102 last week has finally broke and I started working out again little by little a couple days ago. Didn't gain any weight, but it does get frustrating when I have no control of the relapsing sicknesses.

Now that I'm feeling better, I have a Superbowl Party to attend with my Church friends on Sunday. In the past these types of events didn't bother me, but it lately seems as something is always coming up like illness, etc. which hampers my weight loss. I plan on making a few things I can eat without going over, but I just can't seem to find anything appetizing yet quick.

Somehow I guess I will figure something out. Any ideas would be great!


Glad I found out I am just sick and not losing all my patience!

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Yesterday I was just at my wits end. Everything was getting on my last nerve and I absolutely hate feeling that way. DH couldn't do anything right in my eyes yesterday and I kept waiting for him to slip up even more.

Anyway, "sledded" my way to work again today in the foot of snow that I'm not at all equipped for and ended up leaving a few hours later. Couldn't get into it and thought it was just do to being tired of the snow and just being exhausted. Came home with the chills thinking it was due to the cold and snow and had an appointment at the doctor for a routine exam when they asked me how I was feeling as I had a 101 degree fever. Well yes, I feel like crap but thought it was just the winter blues but apparently not so.

So I was ordered to go home and rest and drink plenty of fluids and no working out till I am better. What??? No trying to slip the comment in of me losing weight or not being healthy??? Nope, everything otherwise was right on other than the pounds I gained over the holidays and they didn't even complain of what I gained. Actually told me to calm it down for a few days.

Yes, as bad as I feel that made me feel good! So today I have made a negative into a positive and back on the road to recovery. So there is no working out tonight and some nice hot soup before bed and I'm not gonna feel bad about it!
