New Year - New Start

Monday, December 31, 2012

Well it has been awhile since I was here. Last year was one from Hades but I am not going to dwell in the past. I am only going to look forward and make the changes I need to to get to where want to be.

I decided that come 1 Jan 2013 I was going to get my act together and really work at the exercise and food. emoticon It worked before when I tracked everyday and so I think I just need to be focused and organised to be able to do it. emoticon

Really pleased with myself as I have done 11 mins on the treadmill and 2 of coach Nicole's seated workouts. emoticon They were challenging enough to make me puff and sweat. Just goes to how how unfit I have become. Still have to start somewhere!! I don't know what it is but the thought of exercising is so dire but once I get about half way thru it I am really enjoying it and often over do it as I feel so good!!!!! emoticon

So I just need to repeat this enough for it to be a habit (sounds good anyway. emoticon

Onwards and upwards emoticon

oh boy!!!!

Ok so I havenít been doing so well of late. I got an injury at the gym that made even walking painful and ended up on crutches, then a series of sinus infections and a chest virus that pretty much sucked the life out of me. The sinus and chest infections are now being battled with steroids and antibiotics and I am starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. But it has taken a long time and I got pretty low. emoticon

The upshot is I havenít been tracking or measuring, basically I dropped the ball and had a very long massive pity party for myself. But that is all over now. I am fed up with being on the back end of this and it is time get my head back in the game and my bum into the driverís seat. emoticon

Work is also about to get way more stressful and I know if I donít keep on top of my food and start back at the gym that stress is going to be way harder to handle.
So another bump in the road but back at it!!!!!

Mid Winter... Die You Pity Party

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Ok I admit it I am totally in a funk and feeling really sorry for myself.

So I have some reasons to feel that way but really that is just an excuse and I need to get out of my rut.

So I have got a torn calf muscle that is giving me problems and is reoccurring and painful (just when I thought it was coming right it went backwards!), a filling on my front tooth fell out (for the 4th time in a few months) and the weather is bitterly cold, (well by my standards) grey and wet and just plain miserable!!!! Oh and no public holidays to look forward to until October. I have been too much in a funk to even weigh myself. I think too scared of what I will see.

Needless to say it is a super case of the winter blues, but now I have had my little vent I know I really need to get over it and myself and get back to what I was doing before my injury, as I was doing really well. So I may not be able to do the little bit of cardio I was doing, but I have found the seated routine on Sparkpeople and that was really good, I can do it regardless of my injury and it gets me puffing and huffing.

I need to work out my food for the week, purchase it and get my A into G, enough of this pity party!!!! My life is really so good I donít have any excuse for thisÖ..

Right - self-ass-kicking mode engaged and itís onwards and upwards, or is that downwards????

Ciao bella


help they are out to get me.........

Ok so I donít know who ďtheyĒ are but they are out to get me I am sure

So started the week great, over my bug, off to the gym, feeling greatÖ. on the treadmill and then wham - sudden agony in my calf and loud popping noise! Canít walk properly - no idea what has happened.

Head off to the Dr and hello I have torn my calf muscleÖ!!!!!!!

Have to go for a scan and start physio on MondayÖ in the meantime back on crutches!!!!

I swear if someone isnít out to get me I must be the most accident prone person on the planet!!!! Sigh - oh well at least it wasnít my knee (again) this will require some rehab but wonít be like the last time with my knee - that took 4 months before I was off crutches.

Also means I will have to be very focused on stretching from now on before I get over excited on the treadmill and go to hard at it Ö.. whoops my badÖ.

well feeling really good, finally all over my bug. I am sure it has played havoc with my weight loss so I am not going to weigh in until next Monday morning. Don't see the point in stressing myself out about it.

Just been listening to the Chris Downie interview and finding it really inspiring. Also made me aware there is a whole lot of places on the site I havenít managed to get to yet that I need to go to.

Now need to spend today getting my thoughts together and my menu and exercise plan sorted. I have done ok til now but really need to get some focus on where I want to be and getting there. I guess what I need is to totally commit to the programme so that I can get ALL the benefits I can from it.

I donít want to waste any more of my time just doing it half hearted, and of course only getting half the benefits. So I am going to make the best decision I can each day to get me where I want to be in my life!!!

Just read this great article in the Motivation section of Sparkpeople. Highly recommend it, well it certainly resonated with me. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
