Wow, it's been a while

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I can't believe it's been nearly 3 years since my last blog post. When I left Sparkpeople, I was 218 pounds, down from 240. I completely got off track and went up to a whopping 265 pounds! I finally decided to get myself together and lost 43 pounds of all that weight I gained. I'm here today at 222 pounds and hoping to use spark people as a means to help me lose my last 87 pounds. I always loved how SP challenged me to get off my butt and move with all of the wonderful groups. I lost all of my 43 pounds simply through diet alone, and a lot of time but it's time to start moving and getting fit so I can complete those 5k's I was training for before I let food rule my life. I'm so glad to be back and to look around at the new spark people. It sure has changed since 3 years ago!

  Hey WARBOO! I, too, am on the comeback trail, and coincidentally have chosen what looks to be that same 5k in Corvallis for my return to running 5k. I've tried the couch to 5k and that jump to 8 minutes of running gets me every time. When I first start running (2003) I did the K. Switzer plan and that got me all the way to 50 mile ultra marathons, so that's where I'm starting again. I'll be starting on Sunday, May 26th at Minto (if you are interested, there are details in the 5k training post, I'd love some company!) In the meantime, long may you run ! emoticon

P90 Fat Burner

Thursday, June 10, 2010

I'm replacing P90 Sweat 1-2 with the P90 Fat burner. I never sweat when I do cardio, even when I run, but this had it pouring down my face. Not only that, but it was fun. First time crazy horser here.

    Awesome! I add the Fat Burner Express on my Sculpt days when I feel I have extra energy. I'm right there with ya on loving how quickly he moves from one move to the next. Bring it and keep pushing play!

    I prefer it as well. He switches so quickly to another move that you don't get a chance to get tired or bored. Stick with it - if you progress to the Masters you'll see that he uses that same technique in that series and its very motivating and enjoyable. Keep up the good work!

Thanks to those who took the time to give me some words of wisdom. I had a moment of panic and I'm back in the right mindframe. That was a tough one to work through. I gave myself a swift kick and a dose of reality that it's not going to be highs 24 hours a day. *deep breath*

So that one bad weekend turned into a not so great week. I didnt eat horribly, but I didnt excercise as much as I usually do. I'm really struggling to get back on the train and i REALLY want to get back on it. I dont know what happened. I was at it full force and those TWO DAYS derailed me so bad. How do I get that motivation back? I was doing so good and now i'm so disappointed in myself. I feel like I have to start back at square one, which I know isnt true. One slightly bad week hasnt screwed up two months of hard work, but I can't help feeling that way. It's always the ruiner for me. Feeling like I've wasted all that time, so why start over and do it again? I always sabotage myself. I can't let that happen, especially when I'm realizing that it's happening.

    Remember the importance of small steps and acheivable goals. You might even want to go back to the Fast Break, and keep your goals really simple again for a while. That might stop your downward spiral, and get you going in a happier direction again.

Know that you aren't alone.

    I know how you feel. It's hard to stick to a plan, especially if it's restrictive.

Maybe try thinking of your plan as a long path you're on. Maybe you took a little side-trail off to the side on the weekend, and spent the week coming back to the path, just taking baby steps.

You've already come really far... and all you have to do now is keep going! You already have the motivation. Just do it!

    We all need to be able to take a break once in a while, maybe this one wasn't planned but the only way to get back on track, is to do it. Remember to be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend, can't do anything about the past, it's time to move forward.

that is my pep talk, I do not always walk the walk, but I do the best I can in the here and now.

best of luck to you,
Margaret

    You certainly cannot allow that to happen. You do not have permission to sabotage yourself! You are not allowed to waste the time that two months of hard work just because of two lousy days!!!! Now pick up your big girl boots and walk on sister!

I don't know if that helped, but a friend of mine did that to me and it helped me.

We've all been there, heck I was there recently myself. I dropped out of here for about a month, undid all I did and now I'm back and ready to do this.
