What is it?

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Why can't I get with it. I WANT to, I NEED to...I just cannot get past this damn rut. I am pissed, disappointed and well embarrassed.

I wont do the work out videos so this boot camp challenge is useless...it's just to awkward to try to work out at my computer and honestly I am not going to do it. I need to be at the gym.

Counting calories is getting old, measuring everything is getting old and the cravings are insane! emoticon emoticon

I am hating this!

vent over

    I agree with Kate - step back and set some smaller goals. Drink your water, go to the gym. Pick one thing, succeed, and then pick something else. You can do it!

    P.S:

I asked my doctor about what the best exercise would be for me to do (videos, machines, running, etc.). She said, "Whatever you'll do."

What would YOU do? And not hate? I hate doing videos too.

    Maybe you're trying to do too much at once? Could you drink water all day? Or .... just do squats while drying your hair?

I think it might be overwhelming you, and instead of feeling pride in yourself you just have more to be upset about. Maybe you're just not quite ready to do it all. That's totally ok. You will -- soon, probably.

Take some of the pressure off. I'm sorry you're in a rut. Really - I am. that is rough.

But -- here! I'll give you a present! Maybe it will make you feel better.

Accountability

Monday, May 02, 2011

I was at a Graduation party for a "gym" friend yesterday, mind you I have not been to the gym in over two weeks! ALL of my boot camp buddies were there and I felt so guilty and ashamed :( I felt like everyone was looking at me noticing I have gained a few pounds back and everyone was saying they hoped to see me tomorrow (Monday Boot camp)

The reality is they probably DO miss me and they were likely NOT looking at me like a fat slob, they are my friends. I see them nearly everyday and we sweat, cry, yell and laugh together.

I need to get over myself and take responsibility.

The reason I have been out is due to kids being sick, having surgery etc...all good reasons. But I didn't have to eat like I was on a cruise emoticon

So I am headed to the gym to get moving and get my love & support from my friends emoticon

    Thank you everyone!

I had a great 70 min workout even ran some and felt great! It was good to sweat and catch up with my gym buddies.

Merry-go-round

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I feel like I am spinning and can't get off. I have made some REALLY bad choices and am already paying for them.

BUT that was then and this is now! I will go log my breakfast and get back on track.

Totally Slack

Sunday, April 24, 2011

I have fallen off the wagon and over a cliff I think :(

I was doing to RML 100DTS but after a few weeks I stopped, I think when I get SO involved and strict with myself I start to panic and the sabotage begins.

I am going to try to shift my focus from minutes, miles, reps and weights and just concentrate on MOVING. Fueling my body with what it needs and work on my food issues.

Thank you for your support and I am open to suggestions.

Love & Hope emoticon

    I don't even know what that means! emoticonTry doing all different things. That way there you do not get bored, in a rut, or stressed out about your work out!
IT doesn't have to be written in stone. GO for a bike ride on day, or work in the yard, do some deep cleaning in the house, go swimming, ETC
Try some Spark videos, or online videos. Go to a Zumba class!
Most of all, track your food, and fitness and make sure you are always in the negative on your daily calorie differential!
Have fun and be happY!
Love,

    I just wrote a blog post about falling off of the wagon. I can relate, dear. I have sort of decided the same thing. I was so intensely tracking everything, that I felt guilty about everything I was eating. Or I would do really well for a day or two & then blow it & binge. Now, I'm just trying to focus on being mindful with what I put in my mouth. And maybe tracking can come in a few weeks. But right now I'm kind of backing off & trying to not be such a points whore. :) Good luck!

    I was going to add but then read Kate's response and she's all over it...with the exception of the wine and the pizza! Kepp it going. You'll walk through the fire. Thanks for sharing.

    I second Kate's thoughts. Just do a little, as much as you can. Then go easy on yourself. It's a marathon not a sprint, and burning out will do no good! Just stay with us!

I say that after consuming my body weight in easter candy:) Tomorrow is a new day, right?

    I had a wonderful teacher in college who helped me out of my "all or nothing" thinking.

I was a music major, and was supposed to practice from 4-6 HOURS a day. I ended up doing NONE.

He'd tell me to do the first few minutes of my practice. Every day. Just start. Don't let yourself do any more than that for a bit. Just a couple minutes. Then, if you really REALLY wanted to you could do more. But you needed to just do the first few minutes.

Maybe just do a little, and then STOP! Then check to see if you want to keep going. At dinnertime, eat some veggies first. Then see if you want to keep on with the healthy or move on to the other stuff. Exercise: do 1 minute. Then check. Wanna go on or wanna stop for the day?

Keep huddling. Keep blogging! Just keep doing it. We're here. It's a process.
I'm processing last night's ENTIRE bottle of wine and large amount of pizza right now. Sigh. But tomorrow will be better. It will ....

xoxo

Balance

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Well this week I worked on two types of balance, I did my "balance" team activities but I also worked on physical balance in PT for my knee. ( I am not very good) but it was a great visual for how unbalanced I am in general.

Also this week I really struggled, I just wasn't with it. Hoping for a better week next week.

    Hey, sweetie:

It's tough when you don't feel clicked in, isn't it? Just keep coming back. I'm a firm believer in the cyclical nature of progress. Any kind of progress. I feel myself rise and fall, and if I can gracefully acknowledge that I'm at the BOTTOM of my circle, I'll use the time to think, to process, to self-care, I can relax a bit. I know it'll come back up, and I'll be energized again soon.

Or maybe I'm totally spouting BS here. But it's the BS that I use to get through those times. :-)

  Realizing how unbalanced you are can be a good thing...you become thankful everytime you don't land flat on your face ;) Next week will be better!
