Well backsliding

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I can feel it. I'm looking longingly at bagels , I know that look. I stopped at the grocery store with my younger son and neice to pick up some baker ziti. I had to wait and decided to get them a treat while we wait. Usually I'd get a cup of coffee while they had their treat. Instead I got a donut with them and a cup of coffee. I knew what I was doing and I had to do it. I know these signs. Its that slippery slope that I am completely on. I'm not even at the top stepping on. I have my butt right down on it ready to push myself downward. I'm going to the doctors today for a physical. I don't own a scale and this is the only time I see my weight on a scale. I think I'll be crying today. That is ok if it puts me back on track. I'm hear to let it out. To write out loud that this true and I have to look at it and have it out there. Thanks for reading.

  The problem will be only if you fail to get up after flopping onto this slippery slope! We all trip, stumble, fall, or just flop our bodies down at times, but the success is getting up each time!

    You know what's happening- now you need to figure out what to do about it. Forgive yourself for the doughnut- I had three of them last weekend- sometimes it happens. What matters is what we're doing MOST. Tell yourself "this stops now" and make your nest meal as healthy as it can be, then the snack after that do the same.. and on and on. A lot of people take things day by day- I take them meal by meal, snack by snack. Everytime you chose something healthy it is an accomplishment! And when you don't, forgive yourself and move on- don't ignore it like it never happened, but try not to dwell on it and beat yourself up- if your anything like me that's when I make the worst choices, when I'm beating myself up. It's so hard to change our lives, but it can be done. Little by little, the longer we do this the easier it is- the further apart the slip-ups are, the more we end up craving healthy things. I found myself craving bamboo the other day! Bamboo! Two years ago I didn't even know people ate bamboo! But yum- it's so good with red curry and chicken :)
I hope all goes well at the doctor today. You are on your way to a healthier, more fit, and stronger you- you can totally do this!!!

p.s. thanks for the friend add- I'm adding you back :)

    One step back, 2 steps forward - you don't have to go all the way down the slippery slope, but if you do, just get back on the path as quickly as you can - you'll be heading for your goals again before you know it! emoticon emoticon

Successful day

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

I was on track yesturday! Yeah! I went to my Zumba class that I love but have missed for weeks. It was great to see my workout buddies I've haven't seen in a while. They are such positive people and always remind me that I have to take care of myself if I want to tak care of anyone else. My younger son had some girlfriend issues that could have sent me into a raging binge but didn't do it! Yeah again! It all worked itself out, which I know will be happening again during these teenage years. If I had binged and then had seen everything work out I would have probably binged again just out of frustration. So I did great and feel very confident. I'm meeting a friend for lunch and am thrilled to catch up with her. Have a great day Sparkfriends and thanks again!

    Congratulations for being on track! It is often too easy to get caught up in all the emotions, but it looks like you see the situation and keep things in check.

Starting on a new me today

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I feel like I've totally lost myself these past couple months. Last year I turned 40 and everything was about me. The middle age attack had set in and I was bound and determined to be healthy and fit for my next half. I did it and felt amazing. I needed to go on prednisone for an allergic reaction and gained back almost all I had lost. I am making a conscious choice to focus on me again. That's it. Life will happen with me healthy or not so it is my choice to decide to be healthy during all of it. We made reservations for our summer vacation at the beach! I am a goal setter and this is it. We will bae vacationing with my wonderful sister-in-law and her family and we all get along so well. Her 2 beautiful daughets, 17 and 19 are very fit and beautiful as is their mother. If they aren't motivation to get it together no one is. I really want to feel confident and healthy next to them while sitting on the beach this summer. So here I am back on the wagon. I can and will make this happen like I did last year. I will hopefully never be on prednisone again and will maintain this healthy lifestyle. I had maintained it for 6 months before the meds. That had been the longest I had maintained ever. I have the tools and Spark so here I am! Lets go!

    emoticonI gained most my weight back b/c my thyroid meds weren't working anymore. I'm hoping w/new meds & renewed goals I can do it again as well.

Happy Valentine's Day !

Monday, February 14, 2011

I am meeting my husband for lunch today. I am so lucky to have such a great man in my life. We have been married 18 years and could not imagine life without him in it. I hope all my Sparkfriends have someone wonderful in there life. Spouse, significant other or really good friends to count on. I think making the tough days in our life possible to get through are these people. Use today to let them know how important they are in your mental and physical health. I know I will be! Enjoy a treat and exercise a bit more to earn it! Have a great day!


We had a nice night...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

What a great couple! Such nice people we went out with. We had a great night. I"m committing to 4 days of workouts this week! Workouts have been on the back burner the past few weeks and I have really seen a difference in my waist line. My clothes are much tighter. It's amazing how much a difference it makes to my body. I'm going to Zumba today while the 3 boys in my life (including my husband) watch a scary movie on demand that I have no interest in. I hope everyone has a great Sunday. It should be getting warmer in Upstate New York this week so I plan on enjoying this heat wave!
