Skinny Picture

Sunday, January 11, 2009

I am frustrated. The stupid flood this summer took one of my most motivating pieces, it took my skinny fit picture. The one that I look at and can't believe that it is me. I really hate that stupid flood it has been a constant source of stress. I work on my house on the weekends but I also work every other weekend. It kills my sleep on the weekends and ruins the ones that I have off and to top it off I no longer have a copy of the best picture ever taken of me.

    as long as you have that picture in your head it is a great motivator. i am sorry that you were so affected by the floods, we got married the weekend of the flood and one of my bridesmaids mom and sister both lost their home in cedar falls. Your hard work will pay off and stay motivated!! Hope that I can help!!

ICE

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

Take my advice don't fall on the ice. My back has been thrown even further out of whack. Although it seems that I will still be able to get my walking in it sure slowed my progress for a couple days. I am set to get right back on track and not let it bother me, but I could sure do without the stupid freezing rain and ice the rest of the winter. emoticon

    I absolutely hate walking on the treadmill, but I'm determined the weight is coming off! So.....until the temp stays above freezing on a CONSISTENT basis, you will find me & my ipod walking along on the treadmill (at 4:30 am, yikes) :)

    I agree. I'm a nurse and last weekend we saw A LOT of people in the ER that had fallen on the ice. Take care!

    I know how you feel. I feel on the ice the middle of December and sprained my ankle. It took longer than I liked for it to heal so I could start exercising again. I hope you are doing ok!

starting over

Monday, November 17, 2008

Here I am again starting over. Stress has been my destroyer and i am afraid to get on the scale tomorrow to see how bad it is. This year has been harsh, not only have I been dealing with the whole sick mother thing, once that settled down the great flood of 2008 hit and now I am working on my house and hoping I have enough money. Then in September my boyfriend called it quits but we were still friends until this Friday when I found he was chasing after some other girl for quite a time while we were dating. So now feeling quite foolish I am hoping to turn the bad into some good for myself. To everyone who knows how this feels and is an emotional eater like I am well I say Cheers.

    Sorry it's been such a tough year for you! Glad to hear you're ready to start over and you're not giving up...
Now, more than ever, it is important for you to remember to take care of you! You can do it, and you are worth it!
Take care!

    I understand the fear of not wanting to get on the scale. Even if it's bad news, just remember- this is a journey and you can do this. Emotional eating is so difficult- and you've been through a lot- so be gentle with yourself.

Allergies

Thursday, August 23, 2007

The one thing that is bad about living in Iowa is having allergies and dealing with all of the ragweed etc. I take claritin almost year round to keep the allergies at bay but from august until about october and april til june the dosage has to go way up. I noticed how bad the allergies were this morning while running when I proceeded to hack up a lung. The run felt great but the congestion and the itchy eyes I could do without.

The run just a comment about that it made me realize the abuse I have put my body through. Not the physical stuff but the stuff that does the damage alcohol, cigarettes, and food well bad food. Point is I really know that I need to take better care of myself. As for the allergies I guess the good news is winter is just around the corner.

  


Frustration

Thursday, August 16, 2007

So the scale doesn't want to move I'm ok with that I know I have been working hard but it is still a bit of a slap in the face especially when I feel like it should not be a battle royale to lose at least one f'ing pound. At least my frustration has turned into an entirely too clean house. At least there is something I can control right. Good news is I am running again which is a miracle considering the compressed discs in my back still difficult but making progress.

    Hey Wannabfit, good for you for not being so frustrated that you give up. It is maddening with the scale doesn't move, but we have to keep plugging away.

Great for starting the running again. Every little bit will help you reach your goal.
