Hopefully getting back in the swing of things.

Monday, November 29, 2010

I have had a fairly consistent week, and I am looking to continue it. The baby step approach seems to be working, it is helping me keep it low stress. Nutritionally I am doing better but I need a lot of improvement and it is mostly in the mental aspect of eating. I find that I am thinking too much about what I am going to eat next (and not in the good way) and not basing my eating off hunger or smart choices. Exercise has been a something is better than nothing, in an effort to make it seem more enjoyable, I know that I like to exercise but there has been that nagging voice in my head that wants me to be lazy and I have been fighting to win that battle, so something is better than nothing for now.

    Something is ALWAYS better than nothing in the exercise realm. I'm sort of in that place at the moment, too. We'll keep plugging away and find the joy again.

    We all have had those times, in fact, I just went through one of those and am slowly getting myself back on track... little by little - its the only way to go. Focus on you and being healthy and one choice at a time! you can do this!

    Continue on the path you are on & you will make progress. As already stated, it's one day at a time, one meal at a time, one exercise at a time. I find myself getting overwhelmed by the big picture, but if I focus on the little things, I find that I stay on track much better. You'll get there if you just keep plugging away. :)

  I go through the same things. Just one day at a time. When I feel like I will exercise tomorrow I am just to tired, I make myself remember the article I have read here on SP, even 10 minutes of exercise makes a difference. That to me is done by taking out the garbage, running the sweeper, loading up laundry, and the next thing I know some of my housework is done and I have almost 15 or 20 minutes in. You are doing a great job by doing it baby steps. Keep it up things will become easier.

Baby Steps

Saturday, November 27, 2010

I am not sure if I have just been burnt out cause of the marathon training, or if I have been having an overall lack of motivation, either way I find myself struggling with nutrition, struggling with exercise, struggling to be motivated. So I have started a baby steps program with myself, where I have to do something for exercise everyday no matter how small, whether it is a few push ups or just marching in place or if it is an all out workout. Last night at work since I didn't get a workout in I did 8000 steps marching in place throughout the night. I could have gotten a whole 10000 but I didn't decide to take action until a few hours into the night. I was sitting there and was feeling bad about not working out (adding to the vicious cycle of low motivation and crappy eating) when I remembered when I started in 2008 working out I started by walking/marching in place. If it gets me moving right. I have been doing p90x strength workouts but need to kick it up a notch but I figure right now I will take a just get through it version over nothing. Today I went paintballing and got home with 20 minutes to spare before I had to start getting ready for work, I hopped on the treadmill and did a mile pushing the speed up a notch every minute. Nutritionally today I haven't been great I had to stop for fast food because of my failure to plan before going paintballing, but I made a wise choice since I am again carrying my Calorie King book with me. I have written all food in my nutrition notebook, and while I don't have a calorie count I at least have it written down. Tomorrow I will work on even better food choices (no fast food) and if I just keep working at little changes every day I will be back to super motivated before I know it. In that spirit I am gonna go knock out 1000 steps.

    Sometimes going back to the basics helps. Taking those baby steps will get you where you want to go! Hang in there!

I'm gonna pull out of this rut...

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I have been reading some old blogs of mine and definitely working up some new motivation. Blogs are definitely a great tool, I also get to see there were plenty of struggle days and low motivation days I just chose to push through those, that's the spark I am missing these days.

My own worst enemy

Monday, November 22, 2010

I have been so counterproductive lately, I will do a workout and then top it off with fattening food, I will have a good day nutritionally but then slack off on workouts. How did I have it all together last year at this time. Frustrated, I guess I keep working and push to set it right.

    In the exact same place right now. Trying to overcome my own sabotage. You can do it, I truly mean that . . . now I just have to keep telling myself the same thing and believing it too!! Funny how we can sincerely say something to someone else but then not follow it or believe it for ourselves.

Veteran's Day

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Woke up this am and enjoyed a free breakfast with some of my fellow Vet's at Hyvee, no not on my list of healthy foods but I am making it a tradition I did it last year and this year, I think I was the youngest person there course it was rather early. It is still difficult to remember that I am in the "club" so that is why it is important for it to be a tradition, there are so many young Vet's out there. Thanks to all those that served! And for those in my generation of Veteran's get active in the Veterans organizations we're the future.

    Thanks to you and all the veterans for your service! I am proud to be a nurse at the VA Hospital where I get to take care of real American heros every day :-)
