GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY!

Monday, September 24, 2012

I just saw this on one of my other teams and I thought I would also pass this on.
It is wonderful Jean thank you.

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY!
=========================

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it:

Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power
to create conditions in your life.

What you speak about, you can bring about. If you keep
saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.

If you keep saying you can't stand your body,
your body can become sick.

If you keep saying you can't stand your car,
your car could be stolen or just stop operating.

If you keep saying you're always broke, guess what?
You'll always be broke.

If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a
woman, you will always find someone in your life to
hurt and betray you.

If you keep saying you can't find a job,
you will remain unemployed.

If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you
or believe in you, your very thoughts will attract
more experiences to confirm your beliefs.

Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be
more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love
and action.

Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you
want and deserve.

Watch your "Thoughts," they become words.
Watch your "Words," they become actions.
Watch your "Actions," they become habits.
Watch your "Habits," they become character.
Watch your "Character," for it becomes your "Destiny."

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY!

    Excellent blog. I've heard that before, that thoughts become words which become actions, etc. Good reminder. I copied and pasted it into my regular journal where I can see it often.

Sparkanniversary

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Hi my two year Sparkanniversary is today. Where has the time gone.

I have made so many changes to my life but the biggest thing is that I am willing to change, to learn new things and to not to give up. We do all have our ups and down but the most important thing is to keep trying.

I know I have improved my feelings about me since I have started this journey. I care about me now. I am in a really good place at the moment. I know I still go through the different cycles of life but I know I do handle them better now. I am not perfect in any way but I have improved. LOL.

I could name of a lot of changes but i will only mention that I am fitter, stronger and healthier (both mentally and physically) than I have been for many years.
I also have more motivation than I have ever had before.

Once again I am trying to find recipes to fit my kidney disease because I need to tidy it up again. I am having trouble trying to balance it all out again. I either go too high in my carbs, protein or my sodium. The funny thing I am still eating healthy but not healthy enough for my poor kidneys.

I am enjoying the exercises I am doing again because I am doing what I want to do. I have been up to the gym 3 times this week and now using some of the machines in the circuit, I have done this twice (circuit) . So at the moment I am balancing this well. I also go to exercise class 2 times per week, this is strength plus some cardio. But the main thing I am working harder so I am now breathing harder than I was before.

I have also had some more comments lately which I do appreciate. It does boosts the confidence to a higher level.

All that is left to say is thank you to Sparks and to my friend who sent me a message about this site. It has been a life changing experience. Also for all the people on here that have befriended me and given me their support, help and encouragement to keep going. Sometimes it would have been easier to give it all up but I am so glad I have stuck to this and the improvements that I have made to my life.

So emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon for all the help, support and encouragement that you have given me over the last 2 years on Sparks. I am so grateful.

16th Sept 2012

Saturday, September 15, 2012

thank you everyone for your comments on yesterday's blog. Actually after I finished writing about it, I realise that a few months ago I was doing a great amount of cooking and gave it to my son. Then the few weeks ago I turned to exercising, now thinking about it I think this was my way of coping with what is going on in my life. One thing I did also realise I did not turn to emotionally eating. Well done to me.

I did have a lovely time at my niece's birthday, lovely day weather wise, so all the adults sat out the back under the veranda and had a good chat. Started at 3pm and i got home at 10.30pm last night. I was leaving earlier and then my niece asked me to stay for dinner. So I stayed LOL.

So a nice relaxing and enjoyable day.

Thank you once again for all the advise you have given me now and in the past, it has helped me tremendously. When I first started this journey nearly 2 years ago on Sparks (over 2 years that I started by myself) I really did not think I would still be here. I have never lasted so long on a diet which is now called a healthy lifestyle. I have changed so much but the imporant thing is that I am willing to change and will try new things.

the last couple of weeks.

Friday, September 14, 2012

so much has happened in the last couple of weeks, some are good and some not so good.

I will start with the not so good, I really was letting exercise take over my life, I was constantly thinking what more can I do. In one week I did 3 or 4 days of 180 minutes but by the time I got to Friday afternoon I was completely worn out and couldn't do much on the weekend. The funny thing this did really surprise me because I have never been the one to exercise and I think I was starting to burn out.

I decided this was defeating the purpose of trying to lose weight. I was also running out of energy and time to do anything else that i needed to do. Not good. So now I am trying to put the balance in my life. I am putting the fun back in my life.

Yes I am still exercising but not quite as much but I am doing it because I am enjoying it and not because i feel as though I have to do this.

I also hurt my knee earlier this week so I have had to look after that and adjust what I am doing at the gym. But even I have learnt a valuble lesson here because I am doing other things at the gym, riding the bike for longer and not using the treadmill as long and doing some of the circuit.

So big changes in how I am thinking so even this has turned into a positive.

I weighed at the gym on Tuesday and in 3 weeks of going I have lost over 2 kgs.
I am pleased with that.

in short this week, I have been out to lunch for a friend's birthday. Lovely day.

It was 100 years yesterday that they turned the first sod to start the rail system here, so we had 2 trains come through here, the old (steam train) and the new. Looked really great. I am glad I went down and saw this as I was thinking about not going but it did look great and ever so pleased about making the effect and going down.

Now for the grandkids news, they were deeemed to be in no danger so they would not be removed from their mother. But the funny thing is that the case worker noted in the notes that the G/C were scared. Not good.
Jason has now put in a formal complaint about this and it has to be investigated at a higher level.

He also goes to court on the 24th Sept for visitation rights. One thing this has happened really quickly, even the lawyer was surprised by the shortness of time. So I hope he wins and gets visitation rights and we can see the children. It has been a long time, nearly 5 months.

So now I will have to keep my fingers crossed that Jason gets to have the kids. Miss them so much.

Have a great weekend. I am going out this afternoon to my great nieces birthday.

    It is so hard to keep balance in your life with so much going on. I hope things will turn around for your son and the g/c will be in a safer enviroment soon! The fact the social worker noted they were scared may be the turning point of all this. I'm glad they noted it.
Everything in moderation as you found out. We're cheering for you! emoticon

    Oh Wendy, it is sometimes really difficult to get that balance right, but you're doing it. I clearly remember having the initial mindset that if I didn't exercise that I'd gain back my weight, but it doesn't work that way! It takes time to learn balance. One thing that helps me is I have a timer. Once that dinging bell goes off, it's onto other things that need to be done. Helped a lot. An audible cue that "It's done for now."

Steam engines! They are awesome, aren't they! I remember where we used to live there was a steam engine that went thru on it's way to a museum. It was just the most fun thing. The kids really, really enjoyed it as did I.

Court systems, no matter where they are, never cease to amaze me in situations like this. Incredible that your G/C could state they're afraid but the court finds they're in no danger. ::SIGH:: Hugs and prayers for those beautiful children. And I say lots of prayers that your son wins his proper visitation rights. I cannot begin to imagine how utterly stressful this must be for him. I know it is for you too. HUGS and know you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Have fun @ your great niece's birthday party.

We WERE going to see him in October, but things are ALWAYS changing. He is supposed to go to California, but hasn't been given a timeframe yet. So have to wait for that. But the good news is he will be given a bit of leave in December, so holding onto that! Hope it happens, but have learned NOT to count on anything till it actually happens. But he is doing very well. Taking classes, has a desk job, doing his physical therapy and walking with no assistance at all! HOOOZA to him. Just coming along so much better than I would have even hoped for, honestly. And thanks for asking.

HUGS!!

    The perfect balance for you... hard to find and a lot of trial and error before you settle on what suits you.

I found that I was overdoing it too and also getting fanatical about it all plus too many injuries, so I've cut back (started today as a matter of fact) my exercise. I am rather excited about this as I have a whole new setup coming up and sharing with a Sparkfriend from Seattle.

Stay positive about seeing the grandies. Imagine being with them and playing with them, and before you know it, it will be happening.

    Wendy - glad you are listening to your body and doing what feels right - no sense in overdoing it and getting injuries and running out of energy.
I am pleased for you and Jason that he may be able to get his visitation rights back - I shake my head at some of the decisions these lawyers make. I have my finger, toes, legs, arms and eyes crossed for you both - the children will be so happy when they finally get to see you - so hard for them when they don't have any say.
Have agreat weekend - you are an awesome inspirational leader.

    Hi Wendy Dear,
Glad you are finding a middle road with Exercise ..
In my opinion many of us do this to start off with .. It takes time to lose weight .. Think of all the time it took to put it on so it stands to reason, it won't come off over night ..
I have also found that we lose the urge to exercise if we do too much and that should'nt happen .

Glad Jason is getting somewhere at last with the situation with his children.
It is always sad, when not only the parents but also the grandparents are unable to keep the relationship going with the children ..
Much love my friend ..
Have a lovely day .. emoticon emoticon emoticon

10th Sept 2012

Monday, September 10, 2012

thank you for all your comments on my last blog about the Paralympics. They are all finished now and Australia came in 4th on the table. Not bad for 161 Aust. athletes. On the medal table China was 1st, Russia 2nd, Great Britain 3rd, Aust 4th, USA 5th. (by memory).

Thank you to everyone who commented that I am an inspiration, I don't feel like it. I am still trying to get the equation right. Last week I did so much exercises that by the time the weekend came I was completely worn out. I did a total of over 78,000 steps for the week. Too many. I need to find the balance so that I can exercise 7 days per week, not the 4 to 5 I am doing.I been having 2 or 3 really easy days. I go to the gym 3 days per week plus my 2 exercise classes.

It would be nice to be more in control of what I am doing. I am actually loving the exercises I am doing and feeling really positive doing them but I really need to find the balance.


So my goals are to only do 50,000 to 60,000 steps per week.

My 3 gym sessions and my 2 exercise classes.

Do no more 2 hours per day. I think 3 hours is too much at this stage. I did 180 minutes 3 times last week.

To be in control of what I am doing and start using my head.

Now we will see if this works out for me.

I wonderful thing is I feel fit, well and on top of the world and have been told that I look really well, have colour in my skin and look healthy.

But then I had a lovely comment from my oldest son, I bent over to put something away and he said "you have lost weight because my 'bum' is smaller" then he said "it has some shape to it now". It made me feel good and that it is all worth it.

I also had another comment from a girlfriend that I have lost weight. So I must measure myself again, It has been just over a month since I last did this.

Yes, always got to have a good balance...not overdo, but not underdo either. So glad that you feel so good. It DOES make all the difference to your living and your life when you feel good.

    You are making wise decisions. I personally feel that a rest day each week is necessary. I find for myself that waling 10000 or more steps 7 days a week results in less energy. We need to find the balance between pushing ourselves to the max and not burning out. Have a great day!

I totally agree that you should not try to do too much ..
It is better to even it out over 7 days than try do it over 3 days ..
This is what burns you out!!.
Try to change the exercise you do frequently, otherwise your body gets used to the same routine.
I have found that works for me .. But having said that, we are all different .. so it is trial and error .
So very proud of you my friend ..
You have come a long way!! .
Glad your son said what he did .. I bet it made you smile!! emoticon
Much Love Susie

    You plan to exercise a little less maybe healthier as overdoing it can zap our energy levels, also. It's great to hear sincere compliments from your son and friend--WOO HOO!. I am really proud of you Wyndy and glad you feel better for moving it!!

Hugs,

Jill
