Slow And Steady

Monday, April 22, 2013

It has taken me, what feels like a life time, to realize I really can't change everything at once. Or that if I mess up, it doesn't have to mean giving up, and starting again on "Monday". So, I am starting today with changing that mind set. Small short term goals will help me to create healthier habits that will last a lifetime and not just a diet that I will no doubt fail at. I am starting again...again with the Spark Diet. I am starting with the quick start. I have set my goals. Nutrition=Drinking 8-8 oz glasses of water each day, Fitness=Doing 15 min of exercise each day while watching tv and Motivation=Writing in a journal...not just a food journal but in addition I will also journal to help me track what happens each day and how I am feeling. It will also help me to monitor my emotions and energy levels. I am excited and realize I need to take these small steps and slowly add other small steps until being healthy is automatic and natural! It will happen. I will make it happen. It is going to happen!!!

I Am My Own Worst Enemy

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Why haven't I learned to take things one step at a time?
I feel like I am "starting over" every week.
I stick to my plan for 2, 3 sometimes 4 days at a time and then it takes me two weeks to get back on track. Why am I so wishy washy and why can't I commit to just ONE THING and STICK TO IT???
Grrr...I'm am completely upset and disgusted with myself.
I sit and daydream and imagine and fantasize about the body, the health, the life I want.
I guess I just don't want it bad enough...
If I did, wouldn't I get up OFF MY BUTT and fix myself???
So, here I am starting again...again.
I honestly don't like making blogs about my struggles with my weight but I know it will be wonderful in the future to look back at where I have come from and to also give an example to others like me who struggle with their weight and sticking to a plan.

Can I Do This??? YES I CAN!!!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Okay, okay. So I have totally flaked out on everyone since Jan 4th. What is it about me? About my thought process? About living healthy and being happy? About life and living it to its fullest? What is it that keeps me from sticking to it and reaching my goals? I am notorious for wanting something, starting something and then letting all fall by the wayside...Ugh. Seriously, I'm pretty sure I know the basic rules of how it works but I just don't. I am always so tired and moody and I've gained so much weight that I am officially the heaviest I have ever been. I have gone from someone who had no problem being the center of attention during family events to someone who absolutely avoids leaving home unless I have to (and to go to work). How do I overcome?
I guess we have to start (AGAIN) somewhere...I have decided to go back to using the Weight Watchers program. It has worked in the past so I am hoping to find my groove (AGAIN) and really reach my weight loss/health goals.
Things have changed since I last did WW so I am finding it difficult to figure out points all over again and truly plan all of my meals and snacks in advance.
I HAVE GOT to figure this out and get on track.
Otherwise I will just keep gaining weight, feeling bad about it and myself and send myself to an early grave due to this high blood pressure...
God give me strength to make this work...

    You can. You will. God already gave you the strength. You just have to know that and tap in to it.

Day 3

Friday, January 04, 2013

Day three is in the books. It was a struggle. I have been super tired. I am not getting enough protein according to my tracker so I am getting that straightened out ASAP! But even though I was tired (and sore) I still came home and tackled my workout first thing. And as always I felt pumped after and was so glad I pushed myself to get it done. Tomorrow will be my first weekend and I'm hoping I can still make great nutritional choices and get my workouts in. I will keep you posted. Until tomorrow...


Day 2

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Okay. So, I didn't sleep very well last night (thanks to my snoring husband)! :) As a result I have felt a little sluggish today. My work day was also VERY busy which kept me at my desk most of the day. In turn, I did not get in nearly as much water as yesterday. And to top it all off I didn't have any left overs from supper last night so I had to buy lunch out...yuck. BUT, when I got home this afternoon, even though I was super tired, I still got my workout on! And I felt so pumped after. I'm not giving up! My thoughts at this point is that it is ONLY day 2. I'm still figuring it all out. BUT I am doing so much more than I have in the past. I'm thinking that by the time Monday rolls around I should have a pretty good grasp on getting the right amount of calories, nutrition and water. I will have also had more time to "investigate" workout plans and videos so I can have my routine set! I am so excited to be transforming my body and my health into what I KNOW it can be! Until tomorrow...
