Today's Reflection on Anger & How Getting Healthier Helps Me w/That

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

These past two years have brought nearly non-stop challenges, losses, and traumas. That's partly what caused the stress that was one of several factors to contribute to weight gain (besides hormonal changes, overeating, etc.). During this time, my anger has just built up and I've kept a good rein on it. I mean, I don't flip out and hurt anyone with it. Nonetheless, it is still very much present. However, I've noticed that since I've begun getting healthier and happier, I am able to handle the daily challenges better, as well as to help the anger subside. This is a great benefit to me and one that I don't take for granted.

  


No Free Days for Me

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Last Sunday, on the Jillian Michaels radio show, I heard a caller ask her if she endorsed "free days." Jillian's response struck a chord with me, as she said that she doesn't get the all or none philosophy. I agree. If I let myself have a free day, it would become two free days, then every day. It's really better for me to not tempt fate and just eat right every day.

    i kind of agree - there's no free days from eating right for me, because that's what making it a habit is all about. however, i think free days from exercise are good and important, to give your body a rest and time to reshape.

  Yeah, I don't get the free days idea... I think maybe that's for people who don't have a problem... 'cause I'd make up all those calories on my free day that I passed up all week, for sure. I'm with you. Blessings!

March Goal for Me - To See the 70's

Monday, February 23, 2009

I want to venture into that next set of low numbers and, for me, that means the 170 somethings. Seems my body is at a complete standstill and does not want to give up the lbs. My goal by the end of March is to reach 178 or 179. That means losing 3 lbs. - very realistic goal and do-able.

Happiness is...

Sunday, February 22, 2009

emoticon When someone dear to me says I've inspired them to start eating healthier. As if it's not wonderful enough to experience all of the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, yesterday I was told by a terrific friend that he has watched and admired my progress, and that it is prompting him to begin his own weight loss adventure. This is so exciting because I have been worried about him for awhile now.

  


Gotta Step It Up

Saturday, February 21, 2009

I haven't stalled-out as far as motivation goes, but I HAVE stalled out in making progress. Have to step this process up in March with more exercise. Kinda frustrated. emoticon
