Ms Eleni

Thursday, November 21, 2013

I got word from Eleni's sister this morning that she passed away at 3:10am. She will be truly missed. I have always said she was a treasure. She was the kindest most thoughtful person I have never met. She loved with a passion. She was beautiful inside and out. She was funny and always made us smile thinking of others before herself. Even to the point of having Brianna tell us all she was going to hospice. She didn't want us to worry. She was truly a lovely person. We felt like we knew her family as well. We are now grieving for you all. Please know our prayers are with you. Remember the good times you had with her. Those are the cherished memories. And the pain and struggle that she went through is also now gone.
emoticonEleni We will miss you.

Day One Over

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Just a short progress note: hence journaling

I am glad that day one is over. I did well emoticon

I started my day with God. That so helps.

I went to the gym and did 60 minutes of cardio and strength training

I wrote in my journal

And I checked everything I put in my mouth.

I have to say that I went to bed a little early so that I didn't night time eat.

I did not get in all the water I wanted but I will keep trying on this.

But I am pleased with day one. On to day two.

True confession

Friday, November 16, 2012

Well here I am. Not exactly where I want to be or where I planned to be at this point. No excuses and no looking back. I need to start anew today. I am sorry to say that I have had a rough year and have gained a lot of my weight back. Today I have determined to be a new beginning. I know, I know, the holidays are upon us. Who starts now? But its as good a time as any and maybe I won't gain anymore during that time period.

It gets harder and harder to lose as we get older because our metabolism gets less and less. But it has gotten way out of hand. My energy level has gotten lower and I don't like it one bit.

I know I can do this. I have done it before. Before I get back to my original weight I need to nip it or throw a hammer over it.

My plan:

Start out every day with my time with the Lord. He is my strength and I can't do it without His help.

Get back to the gym. I have been very lax in this lately. Heavens, I work there. I have had trouble with one foot lately with pain so I have just let it slide. I need to push through it!

Be very aware of what is going in my mouth. I want to say I will keep track of calories but I am not sure that will always happen so I will not hinder myself by saying that.

Journal my progress. That way it will be progress and not failure.

I need your support also. If every once in awhile you want to ask me how I'm doing, or if I am on track that would be great.

So here I go: onward and downward (on the scale that is) I hope to have this off by the end of April.

    You can make it happen again. Keep at it. You make want to consider tracking more often so the reality of what you are eating is always before you.

You have what it takes to succeed. You're more than a conquerer!

    You know you have my support. One day at a time. We can do it. It seems a little hopeless when we are in this spot, but it isn't . I've found it doesn't take much to turn the tide. Just consistency...day after day. We can do it!

    One step at a time. You've done it before, you can do it again. Since you're at the gym anyway... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon just a friendly hint. Take care! emoticon emoticon
