Day 2 of being back.

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Today was a really hard day for me i only walked for about 10 minutes, mostly because i got tired and because it was raining, so not much did i do, i dont want to get into it full force i am starting out really slow and work up to where i need to be, so today i think it was a good day.

    You're doing a great job!! Don't push yourself or get overwhelmed trying to do too much at a time. That's how I started, just five or ten minutes at a time, then gradually increasing until I now log 10-12 miles a week! YOU CAN DO IT!!

Love and Hugs!!

    Teresa, Glad you are back. You have started on the right track by getting back into trying to eat healthy and do your weight journey. Spark friends are here to help you and I hope you can talk with your doctor to get some help in nutrition that is right for you. Try to do a little exercise each day, even if you only walk about 10 minutes, it will help. Eventually you will be able to add time to that. Good luck on your journey. Nancy

    I agree, you may not feel like it, but if you can force yourself to work through these blahs, you may be able to get your mojo back. I like the suggestion of trying something new that seems like fun, such as dance classes or bowling, or something like that, and the suggestion of trying new fews is great!

Keep checking in on your teams, and post. The interaction will help, as will having a workout partner or buddy. And don't forget the huddle wall.

Good luck. emoticon emoticon

    like the others have said - we all reach the "blahs" now and then - there are a couple ways to shake them - try something different, like a class or a youtube fitness video, something you haven't done before, maybe zumba or bellydancing or free weights, and do something with a fitness component that doesn't feel like fitness, like working in the garden or painting a room in your house - you'd be surprised how many calories you can burn with stuff like that!

also, make sure you're not in a food rut - try a new veggie you've never eaten or swap recipes with a friend.

out of the comfort zone and into the fun!!

    We all go through it from time to time and you have come to th right place for motivation. The best thing that I have done to push myself is to do different and new workouts. Keep your chin up, we are all here for you.

  I think we all go through this. I was feeling the same way yesterday. It was almost like why bother it is easier not to but we both know that is how we got this way to begin with. Our minds don't want us to change so we make it harder on ourselves than it needs to be.

    Teresa, I think we all go through this a little way into the process. Here's what I did: continue tracking food, walk every day (at least ten minutes), and work through the Spark Points page to read articles / blogs / etc. to earn the maximum points each day. By keeping engaged, the motivation eventually returns and the other "measurements"improve (energy level, fit of clothing, blood sugar reading).

Having someone, maybe your niece, to exercise with may help, too!

Doing wonderful in spite of the rain

Monday, May 17, 2010

I went to the library today and then i took a lovely walk around town today in the rain, it wasnt raining hard but it was like a misting out so i had a wondeful walk in the rain it was so exciting, i do not ever walk in town always afraid of what people would say or think of me a big girl out walking , some might say well she needs it, i just didnt care what anyone thought of me i walked and i enjoyed it so much, it was the first time ever that i walked in town, normally everywhere i go i drive there even if its just accross the strreet but today i didnt care i had such a great and wonderful day in spite of the rain and you know i think i might do this at least 1 x a week, thats about all i can handle at this point but darn it i am goning to do it no matter what anyone says about me i am doing this for me and not for anyone else.
Have A Great Day.

    Teresa, I like walking in the rain, too. It is relaxing, isn't it?

I know what you mean about being self-conscious, but I think we're more conscious of it than other people are -- and the exceptions to that are people who don't matter any way. They have their own crosses to bear; we just can't see them.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your walk. I know that it's hard coming out of your comfort zone and walking in public. Keep going out and don't worry about what anyone else may think. Do it for yourself. emoticon

Motivational Poem "Don't Quit"

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Don't Quit
by: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
