This is How it Works..Right Friends?

Sunday, October 27, 2013

So my biggest issue since I started my diet I believe is how I have defined it...

Then I thought about my weaknesses...I really, really love sugar and once I have a little I end up stuffing my face with it until the sugar supply is gone...

This sugar addiction and problem with the definition of diet really has lead to unpleasant scale surprises...

You know, it would be so much easier if we could start the super glue diet...

Or even try a little cone diet...

...I guess, I will just stick to the original plan...which tonight is walking during commercials while I watch the World Series:) GO RED SOX!

    We all need sugar - simple fruit sugars in raw form and preferably organic. Simple sugars fuel the body including the brain. This is why candy, cookies, cake, etc are so addictive. Unfortunately there is no real fuel value in refined sugars. They just fuel addictive behavior.

Next time grab a piece of fruit, or two, or three. You'll be glad you did.

Oh Frustrated Me...

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I have consistently been at least getting in an hour of exercise each day. Today however I wasn't able to and now I am a combo of tired and anxious. That kind of feeling you only get when your body gets used to feeling healthy and you take a total dive off the cliff into fattyville. Today my diet was poor poor, to much sugar, not enough exercise. Tomorrow I am in the car at 6 a.m. and don't get home until 9 p.m.ish. I have to find a way to eat right and exercise.

Green tea in the a.m. instead of coffee. Walk on every break I am given. Eat as many veggies available to me! Not sure what else I can do. Hopefully I will feel better then today.

Yep, that just happened, I got engaged. This past weekend the love of my life and best friend proposed to me on top of a mountain. The day in hindsight is pretty funny, I was the only one at his family’s camp who didn’t know that it was going to happen on Saturday. After learning that, I could then start to put together the funny little pieces of information – like the comments that seemed a little off, or the fact that we hike as a group every year and this year it was just the boy and I, his need to borrow a camera from someone for our hike after I forgot ours at home, the sense that something was wrong (I thought he was just tired) prior to the hike, and how strangely fast my boyfriend climbed the mountain we normally stroll up. He did a great job surprising me both with his proposal and the beautiful ring that he choose. He is spectacular, seriously, he is hard-working, kind, committed, strong, loving, adventurous and just an overall decent guy. I have waited 36 years for “the one” and found him. I don’t regret anything leading up to meeting him, including how long it took to meet “Mr. Right”. He is someone that I want to spend my life with, not someone I am settling for. He is someone that wants to spend his life with me, I am not someone he is settling for. It is just right and I am so happy about that. I am looking forward to our “big day” and boy am I motivated now, more then ever before, to get the diet and exercise routine on track. I will feel good and look good on the day I walk down the aisle. I will start our life off on the right foot, healthy and active. It has been so easy today to stick to plan and avoid the things that are not so good for me. Hello motivation, nice to meet you!

    Sometimes we have to go through a journey to find "THE ONE" , I know I did and I've realized that we get hurt , can be made a fool of because we need to realize that when the right one comes along he's appreciated!
It doesn't matter how long it took to find one another the miracle is you did! I'm glad he planned out a beautiful day for you and he made a beautiful choice with not only the woman he's chosen but the ring is gorgeous!
I wish you all the happiness in the world remember on your wedding day it's only you two that matter, that day is for both of you!
God bless I'd like to add you as a friend so I can eventually see wedding pictures! good luck! emoticon

What happened?

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

To my willpower with food? I used to be much better about getting back on the wagon with regard to food but now as I get older my willpower to do this has diminished. Exercise, not an issue. I can do that. Eating however, my demise. I actually get anxious on a daily basis about it. I don't know if I need a diet or psychologist. Maybe both. Very frustrated with myself.

    Keeping busy helps me. I go out to the gym in the evening when the TV time leads me to want to nibble. I moved my computer as far from the kitchen as possible ... the room in the attic.

    Hmm thanks for the suggestion. I don't know what that is so I am going to figure it out now!

Lesson's Learned

Thursday, October 03, 2013

There are some people who are born to struggle, one in particular, a beautiful 6 year old boy, lost his life a week ago this past Monday due to a battle with a heart defect.

I sit here and can't help but think how hard life was for this child, and how he embraced it, fought for it, and made every day "the best day of [his] life".

I feel he has taught me that where there is a will there is a way. That I should take every opportunity to live a healthy and long life and honor his sweet memory by embracing the lesson learned, how to live, how to achieve and how to be strong.

Joey, your memory will live on in all those that your mom & dad shared you with. I feel fortunate to have heard your story and have it effect me.
