No Soda Day 1

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Today is the first day of my no soda, pop, coke, whatever you call it, challenge. I am more then halfway through my day and I haven't had any yet, and I haven't even been tempted. Usually I have at least a couple by now. So we shall see how the rest of the day goes. My biggest temptation will be when I have to stop and get gas later on, not getting a fountain soda when I am in the QT. I can do this. I must do this!! I am planning on wipping out one of my Taebo videos later on in the day. Wow wish me luck, it has been along long time since I have done Taebo, even though I usually enjoy it.

    I gave up soda in January. I had a BAD Mt Dew addiction. It feels so good to be free of it, but I had to go through weeks of really bad withdrawls. Good luck! emoticon

Have been gone way to long

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Wow it has been a long time since I have been on sparkpeople and I have missed it. I had been getting on at work becuase I didn't have a working computer or internet. Then I lost my job and didn't have access to computer much, and Sparkpeople was the one thing that took that hit, and boy have gone down hill.

I believe I am now at my heaviest weight I have ever been at my entire life. The reason I say I believe I am there is because last time I stepped on the scale I was 2 pounds away from that, and I have been way to scared to step back on, but my pants are telling me that I have put on more then a few pounds since that point.

I have no clue what my problem is. I got engaged in August, and am planning a March wedding so now I want to lose weight more then ever so I won't be embarrassed at looking at my wedding pictures, but I have put on weight since that time. I know part of that has to do with the fact that I am stress eating from being out of a job, but that is no excuse. I have no excuse. I always said if I didn't work and had much more time on my hands I would spend alot more time at the gym. And as soon as I lost my job I said I would look at the bright side that I have the oppourtunity to concentrate more on my weight loss efforts ( I lost my job the weekend after I got engaged so you would think I would have had the good motivation). Well for awhile I at least went to the gym, I did some aerobics classes that I wouldn't have gotten to do other wise because I was at work. After 3 weeks of this something happened, I have no idea what, but I just stopped having the drive and the motivation to go, and I haven't been since, but I do seem to get out of the house to find something fattening to eat.

I don't know why I do what I do, or even what I need to do to be able to give me that kick in the you know what that I need. But I hope that fact that I am able to get back on Sparkpeople and have the support of people who are going through the same things as me, that it will give me the good start and help that I need and I can put myself in control of food instead of food being in control of me.


Just want to crawl in to a cave

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

This week I have just been wanting to crawl in to a cave after work ( so no one will bother me) and just lay there. I haven't been wanting to drag my butt out of bed in the mornings. I had really good intentions of working really hard this week, then I had a very emotional weekend, and I am trying to figure out where I take my life now ( long story), and it has just been down hill from there. I wish I could be one of those people that tend to workout more then they are frustrated or have a lot on their minds, but not me. I like to just lay around and escape from the world, sometimes read a book. Ugh, I have to get over this fast!!!! I am busting out of my pants emoticon

  My cave is going out of town, getting away from it all. I go there to rejuvenate, reflect and come back to reality. It's all in your attitude and what you really want. No one can do this or make these changes for you but you. Decide what you want to do, then do it! It's okay to hibernate, crawl into your cave for a minute but it you don't come out it, nothing happens and you're in the same place as you've always been, getting the same results. Make it about you and do what you need to do. Start small and work yourself up. You'll see a change in your attitude as well as the mirror! emoticon

    I may not be having the same life issues you are, but I completely understand where you are coming from. I had a friend that would workout hard core when life was tough and she was pissed off. Unfortunately, I do not have that trait either. I've never been good at working out consistently, but I was promoted to a supervisor position at the bank I work at in January, ever since then, I have wanted to crawl under a rock too. I am not the supervisor type and I realize that now. I was so depressed because I hated my job and I was super pissed that I felt I couldn't handle it. I've come to terms that it's just not right for me and I'm stepping down. I'm going back to the smaller branch that I started from and a much easier schedule. It's a hurt to the pride, but it's what's best for me physically and emotionally. Anyways, I really hope that there is a change in your life that you're able to make that will help you like I'm hoping this will help me. In the mean time, if you ever need to talk, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to help.

    This rainy weather does not help; just the weather makes a person want to stay in bed and listen to the rain drops fall. I don't know what is going on with your life but hang in there it will get better. Time takes care of a lot. I hope you have a good support system because that is important when we are struggling. If you don't have one I suggest you start building one by reaching out to others. Sometimes helping others helps us forget about our own problems or we see other in much worse shape than ourselves. Anyway what ever hang in there and I pray that you will get through this soon. Spark friends are always there 24/7 you can find a friend.

Tomorrow is a new day

Monday, June 07, 2010

Tomorrow morning I will be starting the JM 30 day slim down challenge. This will be added on top of my regular work out since I will be doing it during my time in the morning. I will still be going to my group exercise classes in the evening that I usually go to.

I will be keeping track of my journey to see how well I do these next 30 days and how much weight I lose, and how less tight my pants get.
