Sad--I'm not naturally skinny

Thursday, June 11, 2009

I'm feeling so miserable. I haven't been eating well. I haven't been walking. I still play volleyball 2 days a week, but have not been doing much of anything else. I just want so badly to be naturally skinny! I have friends who are soooooo thin and eat whenever/whatever they desire. They never worry about whether something will fit into their calorie range for the day or how much walking they would have to do to burn the calories they just consumed.

I HATE that I am super motivated for about 2 weeks and then give up. It feels soooooo never-ending. Healthy eating and healthy moving are never ending. I have to do this for the rest of my life. I just don't like the constant worry and constant thinking about what I am eating. I will admit that i consume more fruit and veggies than I did before I started this journey. I definitely drink more water (it's practically all I drink). I just don't seem to be able to find the right balance/schedule for me.

It feels good to get this off my chest! I will keep fighting. I just wish I didn't have to.

Did Anyone Else Do: Go Cincinnati!

Monday, May 18, 2009

I did nothing with Sparkpeople this weekend! I ate very unhealthy. I felt miserable last night! I am so ready to feel better, and do better today!

I was part of an awesome volunteer project on Saturday called Go Cincinnati! I did landscaping and painting at a place that houses battered women. I had a blast! A bunch of my friends signed up with me and so did my daughter. (I've decided that I must do more things like this-on a more regular basis). It is great to feel like a part of something bigger than myself. We had 6500 people dispersed around 300 job sites in the city. The other cool thing that happened this year was that 9 top chefs in Cincinnati donated their time/talents and tons of food for a HUGE blow out party, after the projects were done. They set it up in a park across from Music Hall in downtown Cincinnati; and fed ANYONE who came to the Go Grub party for FREE. The food was absolutely fantastic! It was so cool to be in community with so many people from so many backgrounds.

Ah--back to the daily grind. Eat better, move more.

Day 12 Challenges=Sustainability

Thursday, May 14, 2009

So I was thinking this morning about how much I am being motivated by the fact that I am in this Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Boot Camp. Even though I haven't done absolutely everything, I am feeling far more energized than I was 12 days ago. I was also thinking that I will have to keep challenging myself in order to keep the pounds off. I am realizing how much a challenge makes me do more. I like to compete with myself! I've always applied this principle to sports (I try to do my personal best every time without regard to the final score). Now I am realizing that I can apply this to weight loss and weight maintainence. I need to set fitness goals and then do my personal best. Like, seeing how many reps I can do, and can I do more than I did last week? How many miles can I go? How fast can I do it in? This is an exciting revelation for me. I am liking this "new" me.


Day 11 Bootcamp=HUNGRY!

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

I did the video. I feel like I've already been doing pretty good with my fiber intake, but I'll try to increase it a bit today.

I am challenging myself to take the steps 2 at at time all day (going up). I live in a 3 story condo, with the only bathroom on the top floor. I have volleyball tonight-so I'll get plenty of cardio there.

I keep struggling with food. This morning, I just wanted to eat 2 of everything! Grrr. I'm so afraid of blowing my calories at breakfast, because then I will feel starved by the end of the day. But, I'm feeling starved now! I'm just trying to hold out to lunch. I'm gonna make a shrimp and veggie wrap. (the tortilla is low fat, high fiber-to boost my fiber today)

I can make it! I am worth it! I am going to lose weight! I am NOT going to be embarrassed in a bathing suit!
