why...when you decide to take your health serious and start to eat right anjd exercise...do you get sick????????
I have a nasty sore throat, cough, stuffy head, aches pains and can barely drag myself out of bed. I haven't been this sick in YEARS emoticon

still going

Sunday, October 14, 2012

so I tracked for a few days then that time of the month hit, and I lost the plot. Glad to say though that it was only a few days that was off tracking and now I'M BACK!

I'm biggest problem I think is MOVING...I'm very sedintary and lazy, and I need to MOVE...I don't know why I can't get that bit but no matter what I JUST DON'T DO IT. I know that my upcoming times away are going to be busy and I need to get mving now so I at least have some energyso I can enjoy the sun, sand, surf, theme parks...I get sooooo frustrated with myself!!

    I too was sedetary and lazy, I jsut started out doing 10 minutes of exercise at the time, did not enjoy it at the start but I now know how much better I feel when I do exercise. It does take time but the main thing is just to start.
Good luck emoticon

    I'm harder on myself than I am with anybody else. What I like about mornings is tomorrow is a brand new day and an opportunity to start over.

Well, it's been about a YEAR since I was here...how can that BE!?!?! I'm sure it was just weeks........

I'm still the same weight, if not HIGHER!! GGRRR
I'm still working on it, by seeing a psychologist who's helping me and we are working through a program on PROCRASTINATING
I have a new plan, that is to get back to TRACKING, workout with DVDs, and try to take it slow and steady and try not to give up..just keeps swimming, just keep swimming

I have a HUGE month ahead. In 3 weeks my friend and I are taking our younger kids to the Gold Coast for a week of sun, sand, swimming, theme parks and LOTS of busy times (it's only 2 hours from where I live)
Then when I come home I have 5 days until I leave again for my home town, which is a 10 hour drive. I have my sister's 50th and then her son is getting married the following week, so I will be gone for 2 weeks...coming home at the end of November. It's getting hotter, and my hometown is WWWAAAAAYYY hotter than here, and it's on the coast, so I PLAN to take a walk at the beach every day.
It feels good to be back, and getting some motivation...which is my BIGGEST problem!!!

    Procrastinating is just a temporary set back. Giving up is permanent. Way to go for not giving up! emoticon

I don't know what it is, I don't know why this is happening, I don't know what's stopping me, I don't know what to do about it...but I just can't seem to make myself do it!!!!!!!!!!
I have the wii fit, I have just dance, I have tons of workout dvds, I buy them all the time, I have downloaded exercise programs, I have done soooo much....except DO anything.
I go to be saying to myself that I will get up early and workout before I do anything else, then the morning comes and I sleep in and can't get myself up and going, so then I say I'll do it in the afternoon, then I get busy with dinner, tv, kids, computer and don't do it...I just don't do anything....and I hate that I don't do anything. I'm lazy and feel like I deserve an easy day...but I have that EVERYDAY

    I used to struggle too, was a great procrastinator, but somehow I got myself going - I found a few things that I really enjoyed doing, and which weren't too tiring, and didn't have difficult moves (for me, walk away the pounds and turbo jam, and long walks outside). Stuff that is fun doesn't feel like exercise - I just love my punching and kicking ;)
Start small - even a 5 minute walk - that marching during the commercial breaks would be great to get you started.
Good luck with finding YOUR "thing" emoticon

    It is hard for me too to get into the exercise habit! Sometimes for motivation, I get the kids to do Wii with me so at least we are all getting exercise instead of just me trying to get myself moving, lol. Also, I have a pedometer I keep in my pocket (it can clip on a waistband as well) and that helps. I can now do 10,000 steps just about everyday but I sure didn't start out like that, emoticon It took awhile, but I was able to see how much I was (or wasn't, LOL) doing and that helped motivate me. Even if I don't do any other exercise at least I can try and get my steps in around the house. Surprising how they can add up!

Also, I sometimes just march in place in front of the TV (started off-just during the commercial breaks). emoticon

since my last blog entry I have been down and NOT in a mood for tracking. It's that time of the month and I feel soooo tired and worn out, even though it's light and only lasts 3 days.
The weather has been HOT and extrememly dry with the humidity like 8% and even though it's waaaaay better than HIGH humidity, it's too sudden!! Last friday was FREEZING, raining, blowing a GALE and now it's hot and really smokey. Sure plays up with the sinuses.

Today I spent AAAALLLLLLLL day clipping my poor cocker spaniel. I'm sore, have blisters and I'm still not done. He's crazy and a BIG baby. He loves pplaying in the water then rolling around getting matted and fyll of prickles and burrs. He cries and cries just when I touch his leg. He's so pathetic that last year when I clipped him, he got free from me and ran around, stopped, wobbled, fell over, THREW up, got up and thried to run while still wobbly, must have fainted poor baby LOL LOL LOL

At least with this weather I have been drink, drink, drinking water and eating tons of salads. My favourite lunch is a salad sandwich on soy and linseed bread with a small ammount of fat free mayo. They have to be made the same way though LOL LOL bread, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onions, beetroot and pineapple...YUUUUUUMMMMMM!!!! Tonight is home made burgers with that full salad. My burgers are HUGE but most of that is salad.

Here's a picture of burgers made by ME (even the patty is homemade)

    salukis are beautiful!!! I thought they had nice long hair, not unlike my cocker spaniel. They are sooo elegant!!
My Leo cries even when I'm trying to lie him down, so it's on the ground and my on a foot stool, and an aching back. When I go to stand up, I can barely move LOL LOL LOL

    Oh yes! - I can really relate to the care of dogs - we spent 5hrs clipping my aaluki today (and yes - I KNOW all salukis are short haired - except mine - she is pure bred too!!)
She has this really thick long fine hair that just matts - dreadful - we have trained her to lie on a table while we do anything to her - but its still a real trial for her and us!!
And just don't talk about cutting her nails!! You would think we were killing her!!
Oh the joys of pets!!
