Changes and Worthiness...

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Went for a 4 mile walk yesterday—and then couldn’t get “unhungry” when I got home. I can’t tell if it’s because of TOM or if it’s because of stress or if it was hungry. I mean, I felt hungry, but I couldn’t have possibly been hungry still, right? Uggh! Oh well, day’s over and started anew.

I received an oncall phone call at 11:30 p.m. which of course got my mind racing and I was on “red alert” for a potential emergency removal/placement—and couldn’t fall asleep. Then the boyfriend is on mandatory overtime and gets up at 4:15 a.m.—needless to say—I’ve had little to no sleep!

I stayed in bed too long this morning and didn’t have time for my workout—and I’m supposed to go walking this evening, but that throws the kink into my C25K training… do I do my running or 4 miles? The friend I go walking with won’t run. Decisions, Decisions… emoticon vs emoticon

Previous attempts to get healthy end with me getting close to goal weight and then somehow, losing sight and putting it back on. This time I feel like something has FINALLY clicked. I figure there’s always going to be curveballs and not so great days, but the fact remains I can exercise! I’m not going to continue with my ‘all or nothing’ attitude—I’m going to give it my best effort and stick with it. No QUITTING!!!

Losing is great, but nothing compares to the way I feel after a good workout. I’m in it for a lifestyle change, not just to get back in a two piece. Whether I meet that weight goal by June or I struggle and hit road blocks, I’m not giving up or giving in this time.
Because I AM WORTH IT!

    Love to hear your new commitment! It's all about being dedicated to a life-long healthy lifestyle that will be forever, not just some temporary punishment only to return right back to your old ways. I think once you finally flip that switch mentally, it's all good.

    I still make bad choices here & there, but overall, I know what my values are and what kind of life I want to live. Eating junk and abusing my body simply aren't a part of that life. I want to live in such a way that I'm setting a good example for others to emulate... not just my kids (although that's the BIGGEST motivation!), but also friends, family, everyone I interact with on a regular basis.

    I was flattered this morning when a friend called me on her way to take a big college test later today, and she wanted to know what she should eat for breakfast to help her do her best on her test. WOW! I felt bad that I couldn't give her better advice, though, since she'd be eating out and I mostly eat at home, but I tried my best to guide her.

    I definitely can agree with the TOM eating! In one sense, it's a good heads up... in the other sense, I HATE it lol.

    But yes, you are doing this for YOU. If your C25K doesn't want to run but wants to walk instead, do what YOU want to do and then you can get a bonus walk in with her. As in... leave a little early and do your run and then at your walk time, you can walk with her. Or something of that nature.

    You got this :)

    Me, on TOM, much hungrier than non-TOM days. Sometimes I feel like I have 3 weeks of successfully losing pounds but only 1 week of TOM to gain back LOL

    I'm with you, nothing compares to the great feeling after a good workout :D Have a great, fit & healthly lifestyle because YOU ARE WORTH IT!
