how my dad motivates me. and he doesnt even know it.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

only got in 3 and a half hours cardio today but i am having severe problems sleeping. i wake up late, with headaches already, and just feel like general garbagge because i am not getting sleep. (having nightmares.)

so this afternoon i took a nap. well, i slept for an hour and a half and itt wasnt restful. i was freezing and kept waking up cos of the dogs. i guess im not meant to sleep. it is making me miserable.

i also did some--not all that i wanted--leg and ab exercises.

i weighed in at 229lbs today. but with being over 2700 calories last night, i am not surprised. but it was 229.2, so i have hopes that i will see 228 tomorrow.

i am ending the day today at 1870 calories. not bad. not great, but not bad!

so i talk to my dad almost every evening because i am trying to help him get his side business going. so we talk usually every evening. and he always asks if i am biking. and he always asks how many miles left i have on my virtual bike ride. [almost home, btw]
his asking me keeps me going in a way. last friday, i had a LONG day with my mom and couldnt bike when i got home. my dad was shocked. he said, this is the first time i have EVER called you and you are not biking. why arent you biking?

my dad doesnt have a weight problem. he has been within 5lbs of his weight for something like 10-12 years. he barely eats anything sweet, and i have NEVER EVER seen my dad overeat. he is the type that can, and does, eat chips out of the bag and will be fine with 20 chips.

just his asking me keeps me going. he doesnt know it. he will never know it. but thanks dad.

    It's amazing how some people really do help us without even knowing it. It's also amazing how we're touching other people's lives as well. I had a girl buy me a cookbook about eating light and she said that I had encourged her so much that she wanted to buy me something. I didn't even see her much. We went to this weight loss group together. But, it was so nice to get the cookbook and much appreciated!

    Keep up the good work!

    Sounds like you have a great relationship. I hope at some point you will tell him how much he helped you on this journey! All the best!
