    Coming off any psychiatric medication will alter your mood. I came off of Valium, 20mg worth over a 5 month period and it was anything BUT fun. However, I wonder if you have ever sat down and prioritized what you need to be doing. I learned of a system where you use numbers 1, 2 & 3. The number 1 means it has to be done THAT DAY and it CANNOT WAIT. Number 2 means it is still important but life won't stop if I don't do it today. It can wait until tomorrow. The number 3 then means it is the least important. These are usually things that can be put off like picking up items from the dry cleaner. Try using some sort of prioritizing system and maybe your life will get better.
If you like colours better, use the stop light setup. Red means STOP - this MUST be done TODAY. Green means go ahead and put it off until another time and another day. Orange is somewhere in the middle. Do you have to make that call today or can it wait until tomorrow? Does that have to be done today or can it wait a couple of days.
Whatever way you find easiest for you, try prioritizing your life and that includes SCHEDULING IN ME TIME & EXERCISE. If that means cutting out an hour on the computer, do it. The computer will still be there when you are done!

Best wishes.

    The tingling in your feet could be so many things. You should mention it to your doctor. Keep trying with the schedule and the nutrition and hopefully something will start getting better. Take care of yourself.

    Could your husband get up early enough to make his own lunch and breakfast and take some of the pressure off of you? Or help with the dishes or other household duties? My ex made his own each morning which save me to take care of the kids for school and then myself for work.

Need a new way of looking at things

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

I feel like I need a new start a new sense of security for my weight loss I'm a very positive person who lacks good judgements I have dug myself in a hole so deep in the last year I have completely burrows my self in it but the good news is I'm coming back up right here and now I know my life is going to be unbearable for a bit but who honestly don't go through huge changes I let my self go to the point I said I'm working I'm burning more calories than I did considering was always on the move and most of all I turned to deli for my lunches bad bad bad me I knew better but my mindset kept slipping because I let that devil trick me by saying it's ok you work and only time off your feet is 1hr. 30 minutes lunch and breaks and I work about 40 hours
I'm working on eating those mo Mechilinea lean budget meals that's like a buck plus I eat the pic sweet veggies I love brussell sprouts and the corn on the cob and broccoli and cheese is good you get 2 veggie servings for a buck not bad for 2.00 I drink coffee a lot of coffe and I don't count it as a water like some people do cause it's made with wAter I drink more coffe than water but here lately if no coffee made I drink pop not a pop drinker by choice rather drink water before pop but our water at work takes forever to dispense out culligan machine

My question is how do you get your work out burn totals if the exercises you do isn't on tracker or don't know how to add it without tracker I did the turbo fire HIIT 15 minutes HIIT means( high intensity interval training) trying to figure this out for my blc team it says for turbo jam I burned 255 so do I just use the number from my tracker? Thanks everyone I need help with ASAP with all this I will help you in return we are all awesome in our own way you can do the weight loss or healthy lifestyle journey might be a few bumps and kinks in the road keep pressing you will make it I came a long way got a longer road still yet to go but we are all worth it I believe that I believe you can do anything you want to get up start doing remember trying is doing not doing is failing if you never start how will you know until u try keep your chin up smile and say I can do this everyday good luck and I will start my new habits right now ttyl sherry wilson

never thought to Google a workout, I will have to remember that the next time I do something different.
I usually just find something similar on the tracker.

    I think using a pedometer that tracks your cardio might help... most of them will do that function. So you could track the turbo jam that way OR I think there is a aerobic fitness in the tracker you can use.

Heart monitor is another option.

You what motivates you.. dig deep, find it and do it.

    When I track my cardio I look for something that is kind of like what I'm doing. You could also google to see if you can find how many calories are burned in what you are doing and manually enter them in spark tracker. I don't focus on the calories I burn as much as the calories I take in. I make sure I get in my cardio even if it is only 10 minutes at a time through out the day. Since you are on your feet all day doing turbo jam will help give your body a change. Way to go on seeing you need a change and starting to make it. Taking the first step can often be the hardest.

    You must have a lot of will power to work in a bakery. I go through the Wal-Mart bakery and have to keep my eyes glued straight ahead to keep things from "jumping" into the cart. I would like to actually have some success this go around too. Last time I lost and gained the same 5 pounds. I would like to drop from a size 16 to a size 14 before fall. Smaller would be great then I could get a whole new wardrobe! Best of luck!! I am always around for you and I am on Facebook (Somer Robb), feel free to friend request me.

    I feel for you because it's not easy working for clients in such a place where food can be so tempting.

You have to find the time to exercise and also to start making better choices in food. Prepare in advance some healthy snacks that you can munch on when you feel an urge to snack. When I was working 8 hrs or more a day, I used to get up bright and early and exercise then. It wasn't always easy, but that was the only time I had. However, on my days off, I made sure I exercised by walking a lot and doing more activities.

Good luck to you sweetie and wish you well... emoticon

Some people need to grow up

Saturday, December 04, 2010

I wish some people in our lives would realize that just because someone else does or says something and then you get cussed out over anothers action and you do not tolerate or condone it I think it is sad especially when they don't live with me they can't separate me from the other person actions says it's my fault but I know it not but these people are my age but the person who did the statements or actions was 18 and made me furious and so angry at the Same time mad at the younger individual but harder when you get complaints against another when they don't live with me some people need to grow up realize we can't control others actions

  to be sure we all are reasonable for our own actions . that includes words . It is like the people that blame the mom and dad for something that the grown son or daughter says or does . when we are not in control of them in any way. .. take it one day at a time .

    I hate that its called guilty by association Just cause you know someone does not make you guilty of their crimes. I say tell them to shut up and take it up with who they are really mad at. Life is to short for bull crap.
