Doing it again.

Monday, April 02, 2012

Monday's are always hard. I have a stressful job and we have a staff meeting Monday morning. I run to food and soda for a fix. Today, I drank two cups of coffee and large glass of water. Ya. I was so embarrassed coming back to the site after seeing my failure. I guess this is the first step in starting over. I have a problem with my weight. I need to fix it. I am going to give myself 30 days to stay loyal to this and try.

    Never be embarrassed by a set back. Not a failure. NOT A FAILURE!!

Do not limit yourself to 30 days. Here is a little tidbit that may push you longer than thirty days:

To see your trend of weight loss, you need to take a four week running average. If I want to know how I am doing, I look at the last four weeks and average them out. I should be losing 0.5 to 2 pounds average per week for that four week period.

Ah! but there is a but ...

But, you don't count the first three weeks. You body is adjusting to your new regimen. I my own case, I lost 16 pounds in that first three weeks. Then I settled into a 1 pound per week average after the first three weeks. I lost a total of 90 pounds. It took me 78 weeks.

On the other hand, I have known people who gained during that first three weeks then turned it around and lost after that.

So to even start to see how well you are doing you need at least 7 weeks.

Please, please , please, do not look at your scale in 30 dyas and throw in the towel if your progress is not what you want. Please.

You health, your weight loss, your fitness is a long term comittment. Make it count.

May I recommend you purchase and read The Spark. I got mine as audio and I enjoyed it a lot and learned a thing or two.

Do well.

Stress Stress Stress

Thursday, January 19, 2012

A friend of mine said I think you should join the stress group. I know I have to deal with a lot of stress but I thought I handled it quite well. I did decide to join. I have taken the quiz and it agrees. I guess I will learn how much stress can take a toll on my body. I can not get all the stress out of my life from work but perhaps how I internalize the situations will be less. I am going into this with an open mind and really want to change my life style to a more healthy life style.


What a week

Sunday, January 08, 2012

This last week was mentally exhausting and challenging on my lifestyle change. I felt very defeated and did not even sign in Friday night or all day Saturday. I got up today and decided to log in. It was sort of like coming to your parents after you did something wrong. I am sure it should not be this negative but it felt the way it did. I decided to report and blog my thoughts. It is normal and natural. I will continue to try is the bottom line.


Day and Night

Thursday, January 05, 2012

I am been fighting my sleeping habits since the time change. I really love mornings but I can not seem to get to sleep at night. When I cut down on my food intake at night, it does help me feel more energy. I hope this is a new beginning.


Enough is Enough

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

When is enough is enough? This could be a choice that a person has to answer every day. I ask myself when is my overweight high enough? When is there enough stress? I am starting this blog today to help me answer when is enough is enough.
