Which One Are We?

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

This was recorded yesterday, before the NCAA Championship game.

BTW: I met all three of my goals yesterday

    I'm starting my own team! I am both deserving AND thankful to be here in this moment. Magical combination. Thoughtful blog as always and full of heart.

    Good answer fluctuates depending on my mood, my food, my sleep, my meditation. It should not fluctuate, it should be.

    Such a great point! You really got me thinking. Lately, I've felt a lot like I don't belong/don't deserve my spot in this club anymore. I'm just barely squeaking by these days, tracking only MOST of what goes in my mouth and doing only enough exercise to get me to and from work. I'm constantly fearful of the scale again, I can SEE the difference around my ever-flabbier middle and I'm also starting to feel it in my clothes. Of course this means I am not deserving! I've stopped earning my membership in the Fit and Fabulous Club.

This, of course, feeds a vicious cycle! Some of my pared down exercise is legitimate (pain and disrupted sleep interfere), but even if it weren't, that negative self-talk ("You're not earning your place anymore, Angie!") does nothing to help get me back on track.

Thanks for the reminder to reconsider: I deserve good health, even when I can't give it 100%. Because any amount of effort matters. It shows I love me enough to keep going.

    John, this was a great biog and I must admit kind of an emotional for me, I have never thought of being overweight in quite this way but I can honestly say I would have to be on the latter team; with Spark People I hope that is changing. Thanks, emoticon

Once again, you are amazing! First of all, you responded to my blog of today within seconds of my posting. Thank you for that. I am going to think about this contest.

I love Bones, too. That episode was on here last night! Great episode. Good choice. I'm not much of a sports fan so it would not be much of a contest for me between Bones and a game of some kind.

The gist of your blog today is really about Image, actually. You may be speaking about self-image and how we think of ourselves. However, how we present ourselves influences more than just our audience--it influences us, as well.

I certainly see your point about those teams. If they could be a draw at half-time, they could certainly have won--or at least tied (if that is an option. I would guess they would play indefinitely until someone won.)

BTW, how are you feeling? Are you still reading Sarno or have you finished?

Speak to you soon.

    I'm Louvahl. (wink) I have days when I'm more confident than others but I'm in a beating myself up patch and I haven't found the exit yet. Makes life pretty tough. Working on that.

Congrats on your goals.
