8/20/14....do i have to????

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

I used to think this ALL THE TIME when i was growing up. I never said it, because my older sister did enough of that for the both of us.
Now, it is more related to work and housecleaning. I don't really like either, but i know i HAVE to do them. on a daily basis.

    I still ask myself that question all the time about facets of my WL journey. emoticon

Usually the answer is YES. There is no way around it to lose the weight you have to do the work. That goes for everything else as well. "You can wish for it or work for it." In the end we know which will help us progress.

8/6/14----the chip is lifting and the mind is changing

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I set a small goal for myself this week. Since I like to indulge in beer and wine during the work week, i decided that from Sunday-Thursday nights i can have 1 12 oz beer or 4 oz glass of wine (no more). Friday and Saturdays i can have 24 oz beer or 8 oz wine (no more for the day). so far, it i have accomplished my goal. I am no longer feeling nauseus while drinking and i am not waking up with a headache. so, i am figuring out what works for me.

    Way to go! It's so difficult for me to limit alcohol, especially after a horrible day at work or when I'm with my friends.

7/31/14----it's been a while

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Many things have gone on since the last time i wrote in my blog. I am being more active, which is what I can do to get to my weight loss goal. I realize I am not willing to change what i eat and drink at this time. that will come. I believe, for me, that when i am active on a regular basis, then my eating and drinking will become healthier.
My dog, Kirby (9 yr old boxer mix boy-tan and white in the pictures), went to Rainbow Bridge 7/14/14 due to cancer and I was okay for a couple weeks. I knew that he was sick and wasn't going to be around for much longer because i had been having bad dreams where i had to make that final decision. It wasn't any easier the day it happened. My DH didn't want to let him go yet, and neither did i. however, because of the weekend events, i knew that it was only fair to have Kirby leave this earth on a good day (ate his breakfast, kept it down, along with meds staying down).
It wasn't any easier to take him in the vet office. I am pissed at them because he wasn't understanding what was going on and they were forcing him to lay down. I regret not making them stop and allow me the time to get Kirby to lay down on his own so he wasn't freaking out. I will regret that for the rest of my life, and I won't let that happen when I have to make the decision again for any of our other furry children (currently Ziggy, our other dog).
Other than that, and working through those feelings, I am doing pretty good.

    I'm so sorry about your beloved Kirby. But I believe they visit us from time to time, whether it is to sniff our faces while we sleep, or to play with another fur baby. He'll be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. Don't be too hard on yourself about the experience. He was with you and that makes a huge difference.

I think that it's ok to splurge every know and then when it comes to food, especially when you know you need that mental break. The important part is the lifestyle change of paying attention to what you're putting in your body. At least that's what I think! :) I lost a lot of weight before and I gained it back because I lost it too fast and didn't fully learn how to handle healthy weight loss. I was insane the whole time and probably a pain in the butt. But now I think a bit more like you and just going with the flow, but with a mindfulness I didn't have before.
