TRY, TRY AGAIN AND AGAIN

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Here I am again and I will say this until I reach my goal....I will try, try again and again until I get it right. There is a long way to go and that is ok. I have time to take this journey and I will succeed. I borrowed another saying from a SPer and after I read her blog it helped push me in the right direction again. Thank you.

"YOU HAVEN'T FAILED UNTIL YOU QUIT TRYING"

I haven't quit yet!

Saying Borrowed from Another SPer

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” -Kenneth Blanchard

Try, Try, Again

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Trying very hard to stay on track with all the commotion that has entered my life. Sometimes you just have to put your foot down and say enough is enough and get on with my business of being healthy and fit.

Did my 2 mile walk in 38 minutes, a little slow, but I haven't walked in a weeks time. Did my 15 minutes with Shaun T and really feel energized. I'm going to do another 15 minutes later today before dinner. I have found that the 15 minute exercising has given me more energy and also puts a damper on my appetite. I'm not roaming the kitchen as much. I've been reading Bravelute's blogs and following some of her tips and it has really helped. I'm not sure I want to go all the way with Dr. Furhman yet, but I'm eating "CLEAN" and it is helping. I've started tracking the foods and I don't think I have a gluten sensitivity, but it may be the preservatives. If I bake my own bread, I don't feel like I've been punched in the stomach...if I eat store bought bread I feel terrible and want to crunch up in a fetal position because of the pain. I'll continue to keep track of anything and everything I eat to see what is causing this problem and I will prevail. It's my challenge to myself because I've done enough farting around.

Home Again

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Oh SP I'm home again. I'm going to track again. Every little thing that passes my lips from a lick to a gobble. I've tried to do it myself and just put in my exercise, but it isn't working....I'm going back to tracking my food one mouthful at a time. I've set up my list for tomorrow. I'm putting my list right on the kitchen counter so I'll see it in the am when I get up....no more excuses.

I also bought an old bike from Craig's List today. It needs some repairs and is in the shop. Can't wait to get it out. Also found a really nice helmet to wear for protection while out on the road....at Salvation Army for $3.99 how's that? Woo hoo I'm excited.

Have also set my alarm for 7am and going for my run/jog. I did really well for 2 whole weeks then nothing this week....slacked off. emoticon

I feel really good about all this. I'm still keeping up with my 10,000 steps and have been doing over that amount consistently.

This is a promise to myself to loose at least 5 lbs. by the end of this month. Think I can do it....we will see...that is my challenge. emoticon

Sending skinny vibes to all SP's....lol

So You're Human Are Ya?

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Yes, I'm human and I'm going to make mistakes on this journey, but you know what, I will preserver, always. I've been motivated by reading some of the SP blogs today. Also knowing that I'm never alone in this battle of loosing fat. Yes, that is what I call it because throughout my body and inside and around my vital organs is where the bad fat is living. If I don't watch out it will eventually kill me. I've always thought that I have lived a healthy lifestyle. Until menopause caught up with me, the weight gain, diagnosis of fibromyalgia that was so bad I couldn't get out of bed or walk and my thyroid let me down. But, I'm a living example that exercise can be a curse on fibromyalgia. Hurt, yes, it hurts to move, but if I don't move I hurt worse. Anyone out here in SP land that has it....please move, move your body. I kayak, I'm a master gardener, love to cook and try new recipes, bake my own bread and I belly dance and try to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and best of all I'm a Nana to a beautiful 17 month old granddaughter. Hey while writing this all down I feel like I have really accomplished great things....I've stopped taking my medications for fibromyalgia which was Cymbalta, Celexa, Flexerel so many different drugs because the doctors aren't sure what you have and some don't believe in Fibro. Now for the thyroid gotta stay on that and that's all I take now. I've come a long way baby....and I'm going to take this beautiful journey one step at a time. With all of you with me. Because you see I'm uncovering more that a sleeping butterfly I'm learning more about myself and others and there's nothing that can hold me back. Thank you SP for being here, for the wonderful recipes, and all the tools offered on this site. And to all of you beautiful people in SP land....sending skinny vibes your way.

    Getting off those meds is a great accomplishment!! Keep it up!! You have inspired me for sure. I have to be on prednesone (rare life-threatening disease), and gained 40lbs. last year...now they say I am nearly diabetic too. Like you, I thought I was healthy!! We do have to keep trying-especially the walking/moving our bodies. I know!! I almost could not walk 10 yrs ago when my arthritis/tendinitis in my feet/ankles got really bad. I pushed and walked and buy good shoes with arch support, and it has all helped a lot!! emoticon

    You said you fell like you have "really accomplished great things". You absolutely have!!! That you continue on, despite so many reasons that other would give up, is an inspiration. You prove that good health can change so many parts of your life and your outlook. Thank you for sharing your story. emoticon
