now where to start.the fitgirl´s challange this week was to write ablog over what challanges you in this healthy lifestyle journey and what are you going to do to help you beat theese challanges.tzhe reason i don´t know where to start is that i have so many challanges that i don´t know which one to pick first.i guess the biggest challange is myself,lol.isn´t that always the case.i let things get to me or get in the way.i.e. if one of the kids are ill i use it as an excuse to eatand when i say eat i mean sweets etc.when we have something to celerbrate i eat,when i am feeling depressed(like with the fact my left eye is still not closing etc)i eat.when i am bored,i eat.get the picture I EAT.i let my emotions get the better of me and use my lack of will power as an excuse to eat.the hardest part about this is we have eat to survive but there is eating and eating and when i let it my eating is mindless eating.all i can say is i am glad i like my exercise or i would have never lost the weight i have lost so far(138lbs,hope that answers your question bev)and would be twice as big as i am now.i know you are all thinking wow 138 lbs lost and she complaining yes i am ,but to myself 138 lbs is great but if you knew that if i hadn´t kept pugging out whenever anythink came my way in the last three yearsi would be now at my goal weight(i have more than 40lbs to go)and more as i have lost the same 20-30lbs over and over again with my yo yoing.ok i can be kind to my self and say karen,don´tbe too hard on yoursekf,loook how far you have come,look how much you have had to go through with thew kids health and your own.yes that is true,the kids social worker says she has no family on her book that has to cope with all the illness that our family has to cope with even the ones that has more than 10 kids,lol.but can i use that as an excuse shouldn´t i use it the other way that i have more reasons to eat sensibly and to get myself as healthy as i possibly could for myself and my children.don´t i even owe iit to them and myself.i know the answer to this is yes but like i said i am my own worse enermy and let stress through lack of time,emotions etc get the better of me.the key words here being THAT I LET.lol.
see i know where i am going wrong.i know it is down to me.no one can do it for me.so what is my plan of action.here it is as goes.wish me luck.
1.be honest with myself
2.before i put somethiong in my mouth as myself do i really want,need it?
3.if the answer is yes ask my self why,what reason for it?
4.be more aware of what why and where i eat(where is also important)
5.try distraction theraphy if nessacary.the house will be pleased to get more attention lol.
6.don´t bottle things up inside me ,blog about them if nessacary.
7.exercise more it always make you feel better.
8.be kinder on myself ,know that i am worth it.
well that is my plan of action,lets see if i can keep to it and get to my goal weight by my birthday which is may the first.should be feasible if i don´t let myself get in the way,lol.exercise should be easier now and i have no excuse as my husband gave me our wedding anniversary preasent early last night(our anniversary is 21st november)it is a crane run 8 treadmill so i have no excuse now,lol.thank you all for reading my blog as usual and i hope my blog will help you all think about your own challanges and how you can workout a counter plan as well.take care and keep smiling
