I wannabfit..

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

I really do but sometimes I sabotage myself so much I have got to get rid of this all or nothing philosophy. It seems like when I have something bad I have a tendency to say screw it and I waste the whole day. That said as of today I am on the road to recovery, although the day started bad. It started with my alarm not going off for my workout because I set it for pm instead of am. I did salvage the day by walking for 45 minutes at work and boy was that a struggle tonight but i pushed through it. I suffer from low back pain and it was nagging at me tonight. I did get it stretched out fairly well so hopefully I will have no more of that this week. My back has been hurting less since my weight loss journey began so that is good. It seems like workouts are getting back on the right track now I just have to get the nutrition to match it.

    You're getting there. Actually, you are doing great. And don't I know about saying "screw it" when there's a slip up. I couldn't help but laugh when I read that. But it's o.k. You are going to slip up from time to time. And when you do, and you say "screw it", like we all do, you know that feeling you have later that evening while laying in bed thinking, "I wished I hadn't done that". That isn't a good feeling is it? Just remember that feeling everytime you are about to give in and do something you may regret later.
I believe firmly, and I'll always back it, to have at least one cheat meal a week. It does help keep you on track the rest of the week, and it gives you something to look forward to.

February

Saturday, February 28, 2009

I am ready for this month to be over it has been a long rough month for me. I haven't been as successful as I was in January. I suppose January was full speed ahead where now February is more realistic. I am hoping to find the balance in March between the full speed ahead and the real world. Needless to say my weight loss slowed ie stopped this month but at least I have maintained. So now it is time to stop feeling sorry for myself and get back to work. The good news is through it all I haven't given up on myself I've just eaten one too many chips and dip. I did give cheese up for Lent and I have to tell you it was so difficult at the grocery store the other day not to purchase cheese I also almost bought a sub sandwich with cheese on it. Not that I couldn't pick it off but I realized how conscious I will have to be. I also wanted this spread and thank goodness I read the label it had cheese in it too. I have to say if I can make it the whole time I will be doing really well.

    If you make it the entire time or not, you are doing good. You know what February was all about, you maintained, and you notice what you can do differently for March. You can do it, and you will do it. You have your mind set in the right direction. Now, it's time for ACTION! February is today, tomorrow is March. Let March be the month that you MARCH into becoming a healthier YOU.

Week off

Sunday, February 22, 2009

I took this week off I had been starting to get fatigued and I realized that I may have been going a little hard plus I had a lot going on that was stressing me in my personal life. So I took a little break and it was the best thing I could do I realized I missed exercising and eating well, I also realized that I should view it as fun and not a chore. I don't think I was really viewing it as a chore but I "had" to do it or I would gain weight. Well even with the time off from both eating and exercise I did not gain any weight nor did I lose any fitness so I realize now it will be good to have days off. Lesson I knew but had to learn the hard way, it is just that when I put my mind to something I go all out.

    I'm glad to hear that you missed your healthy habits when taking a break...I think that's a good sign that the fitness bug may have bitten you. ;-)
Sounds like you're hanging on to that positive energy that comes with it too!
Be well & Spark On!

New energy

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Now that I have been consistently walking almost everyday and most days twice a day I have so much more energy. I'm not drained at the end of the work night. I also find I never use the elevator anymore no matter how many floors I am going. Tonight I noticed that there were people waiting up to 5 minutes for the elevator and I felt like putting a sign up that says it is only 44 stairs to the 2nd floor and another 42 to the 3rd floor, why wait? It made me realize how lazy I used to be and how lazy people have become. I mean maybe they aren't in a hurry but who wants to wait 5-10 minutes for the elevator.

I also noticed that I am not tired even though all other signs would indicate that i should be. I work nights but I have been up since 5am I worked on the house all day, got an hour nap (half dozing) before work and I feel like I could go another 24 hours, which I may in fact have to do. I am again working on the house, I have got walking group at 2 and tonight at midnight is our first track practice and we are having a six hour lock in. I can't wait I love coaching track although this is going to be my last year for getting paid I may volunteer after this year, but the school district is changing their hours so it is not going to work with my schedule. I am bummed about that but it will make me attempt to get a promotion at work with more heart because I will be able to flip flop schedules now. So there is some good in it. I am currently going for a promotion at work although it is only a small step it will head me in the right direction to get where I know I should be and to be honest my weight loss gives me a little more confidence going into the interview. At this point it is not a lot and not hugely noticeable but a I feel it and it feels good.

I started working on more strength exercises yesterday and today hopefully this will help tighten the weight loss I am having . Currently I am being the cardio queen but some strength exercises will help get rid of that flabby feel and I think it will make the weight loss more noticeable... although today I did notice in my face that it looks a little leaner.

I guess the point of this is things are going well mostly in my exercise, diet is about half and half right now, but at least it is going in the right direction and I am feeling a lot more energy because of it.

One side note that is bad but good. Tonight I didn't bring any lunch to prove that I wouldn't starve to death if I didn't eat, and that I do not need to go to the vending machine if I forget my lunch and (hopefully) that I can eat something sensible when I get home if entirely necessary. Granted it is not the best thing to go 14 hours without eating but it is something I needed to prove to myself. emoticon

    Sounds like you are making many positive changes...isn't it funny how when we start to take better care of ourselves, we start making improvements in other areas of our lives as well!
I like how you seem to be incorporating more "lifestyle habits" and enjoying some of the "non-scale" related progress you are making!

Take care & Keep on Sparking!

Fat changes you

Friday, February 13, 2009

In one of my groups someone brought up the topic of mannerisms, habits, etc you change when you are fat and they are changes because of your weight. I had just been thinking about it tonight because there is a guy who I would love to talk to and in the past I would have walked right up and said hi etc. Not anymore basically if people don't say hi to me I don't say hi to them. I am not a shy person at least I didn't used to be but now its like I am afraid to say hi to people because of my weight ( and it doesn't just include hot guys either). When did I become so afraid to introduce myself, I used to be the center of attention. I have noticed now that I have lost some weight I feel less embarrased, but in certain peer groups I am still withdrawn and just want to get out of the situation quickly. I just want to get back to the way I felt when my theme song was Nelly's #1. I would like to think that I could do this without losing weight but I think that it is going to have to wait til I am lighter, I guess until I love myself. ...cause 2 is not a winner and 3 no one remembers...
