WHAT A BAD START TO 2010

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I GAINED A LARGE DEAL ON MY WEIGHT BACK. ALTHOUGH I HAD ONLY LOST 4 POUNDS IT WAS A 4 POUNDS THAT MADE ME FEEL GOOD. I HAVE NOW GAINED 3 BACK. I LIVE SUCH AN ACTIVE LIFE STYLE U WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULDNT BE SO HARD. BUT, BECAUSE I AM SO EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY EXHAUSTED WHEN I GET HOME FROM WORK ALL I CAN DO IS SIT ON THE COUCH. I DONT REALLY EVEN THINK I WOULD HAVE AS BIG OF A PROBLEM WITH MY WEIGHT IF MY EXTRA SKIN FROM LOW RIDING BABY NUMBER TWO WASNT THERE.

I SLACKED OF RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS THINKING THAT I WOULD LET THE HOLIDAY PASS AND BE BACK TRACKING EVER DAY BUT I LIED TO MYSELF.

THEN MY NEW YEARS RESOLUTION WAS TO EAT HEALTHY AND FIX MY MARRIAGE. THERE WAS MY FIRST MISTAKE. NEVER MAKE YOUR RESOLUTION SOMETHING YOU REALLY WANT TO DO BECAUSE IT WONT GET DONE.

I AM HERE TODAY FOR SUPPORT. I SO BADLY NEED SOMEONE TO MAKE ME ACCOUNTABLE. SO MANY PEOPLE TELL ME TO US MY HUSBAND FOR THAT BUT IF WE CANT MAKE EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE IN OUR OWN MARRIAGE HOW WILL HE HELP ME IN THIS.

I REALLY THINK THAT MY HOME PROBLEMS HAVE A LOT TO DO WITH THE STUGGLES WITH MY WEIGHT. MY HUSBAND KEEPS TELLING ME I AM BEAUTIFUL BUT IT ISNT ABOUT WHAT HE THINKS OF ME, IT IS ABOUT WHAT I THINK OF ME.

A FRIEND OF MINE SAID I SHOULD LOOK INTO MEDS FOR DEPRESSION BUT DOESN'T THAT MAKE U GAIN WEIGHT!

EEEK! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO. I WANT TO START OF SO BADLY. I DONT LIKE TO JUST WALK OUTSIDE AND I DONT HAVE THE MONEY FOR A GYM MEMBERSHIP, AND THE GYM AT WORK IS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK BUT I WORK FROM HOME HALF THE TIME OR THE KIDS ARE WITH A FAMILY MEMBER AND I CANT MAKE TIME TO STAY AND WORK OUT.

GESH! MAYBE ILL GET MY ACT TOGETHER. WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT ANYONE?

THANKS,
JENNY

P.S. I KNOW I AM TYPING IN CAPS(SCREAMING) BUT I AM AT WORK AND MY JOB REQUIRES ALL WORK BE DONE IN CAPS SO I HAVENT TAKEN IT OFF. SORRY! emoticon

    I want to point out a freudian slip in your blog.

BUT, BECAUSE I AM SO EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY EXHAUSTED WHEN I GET HOME FROM WORK ALL I CAN DO IS SICK ON THE COUCH.

You wrote the word "sick" instead of "sit".

You have this sadness in your eyes. You also sound like you are trying to "fix" too many things including yourself that you can't get to anything. Pick one thing at this moment. What can you begin and end right now? Is it dinner? Is it changing a diaper?

By the way, a lot of us have the extra hanging skin from having babies. It may or may not go away but it isn't anything you can "fix" right now. Don't be so hard on yourself. Now go put on some music and dance for your 3 month old with your 3 year old as a back up dancer. emoticon

    I have the same trouble trying to find time to exercise. I am lucky enough that my employer helps pay for a gym membership, but trying to find time in a busy day and the limited hours my local Curves is open is difficult. I found that if I use my lunch hour to work out then eat my lunch at my desk after it works for me on the days that I can't go in after work. As far as working out at home can you make time when your kids go down for a nap?

There are days that I really have to force myself to workout. I just keep reminding myself of all the benefits of exercising, like I sleep better at night, I have more energy after I'm done to work around my house, it's a great stress reliever. If you need a buddy, I'm more than happy to be there to encourage you! Just drop me an email or comment.

    I WOULD WORK OUT AT HOME IF I DIDNT HAVE A 3 YEAR OLD AND A 3 MONTH OLD. I REALLY WANT TO AND I AM COMMITED I JUST HAVENT FIGURED OUT HOW TO DO IT YET.

    So far as exercising, you CAN do that at home. There are some great videos for cardio and strength training in the fitness section. Check them out! Good Luck!
