God I'm trying

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

I don't think about it too often, it's hard enough to deal with being fat as it is.

But I have to admit that I've let God down.

He gave me this temple that is my body. I need to care for it.

I'm trying God. I'm trying. I need some help though.



Why does this have to be so hard

Tuesday, July 01, 2008

I'm sick of having to start over.

I wonder how far I could have been if I had just kept at it.

A year ago I weighed 20-ish pounds less than I do now, maybe even 25.

It was wonderful.

But I allowed myself to mess it up, and now here I am. Again.

Picked up a book called "Protein Power" at a used book store last week. I'm giving that a try.

I have no expectations right now. All I can do is start. Again.


Exercise exercise!

Friday, March 07, 2008

Haven't been tracking my food the last couple (few) days, but I AM tracking my exercise, and I am making myself go!

I was thwarted last night (3/5) though! I went to work out at the **24/7** fitness club I belong to....and I couldn't get in! Eventually someone else came along, and he had the same problem. I was glad to know it wasn't just me, but oh was it frustrating! I FORCED myself to go (it's so much easier to be lazy!) and then I get there and can't do what I set out to do.

Anyway, here's something I am noticing. I am able to walk at my personal highest treadmill speed of 2.7 mph longer/harder before I get close to my max heart rate and back it off 1/10 or so (to 2.6 mph). Rock on!


I HAVE to watch the carbs

Friday, February 29, 2008

There's just no other way. Well, I'm sure there is, but I know from experience that I will feel better and lose faster if I get a handle on my carb intake. As in breads and such. Fruits & veggies I'm not so concerned about, but bread is my weakness. I really really enjoy eating breads. It used to be cake, but not even that so much, not always. French bread with pasta, strudels, etc -- those are big downfalls for me. I have to remove them from my diet for at least the time being to kick-start this losing thing. I made this decision yesterday. I can do it, I've done it before, I will do it now. And I will feel better in the long run!

    Little steps are best aren't they. I find if I push to fast too soon..I soon end up losing more ground then I gained.

So good.
