Rock bottom and yet drilling for lower

Saturday, July 07, 2012

I feel like I refuse to get my feet underneath me and get my diet under control.

I feel like the 100 degree temperatures are working against me, though. A few days at the in-laws, where the temps never dipped below 90, and with no workout equipment available... and tons of junk food with no fruits and limited vegetables. And then a movie theater popcorn and and and.


But, really, I need to shape up my attitude. I walk around chanting things like "you're a fat fatty" to myself, which frustrated my husband to no end. He doesn't like it when I am really mean to myself. I don't blame him, because it doesn't help anything.

The temperatures are supposed to break tomorrow. I am home. I am working out again. I am trying to stay hydrated, rested, and exercised. I get most of the way through any week but I trail off by the end of the week. This week, though, I've loaded up the fridge with fruits and vegetables and lower calorie frozen treats (like the yesso brand greek yogurt pops).

I've also recently changed medication, to try and manage my symptoms. I don't know how much that is affecting my mood, either, and I think it's affecting me, some. But then again, so does pain and feeling like I'm living my life around that time of the month, you know?

Come ON, self. Step up. Adjust the attitude. This is not insurmountable. I can get out of my own way.

    I also feel your pain - I joined SparkPeople with a renewed attitude, full of pep and energy. Someone should have told me not to start the week my grown girls insisted on going to the theatre (Magic Mike and all) and followed right up with a holiday! My first week was spent yelling at myself for not being prepared. Its done, had a long talk with myself about the planning part of my new lifestyle. It sounds like you are back on track with a fridge full of good choices. Moving forward is always the best!!

    I feel your pain--been there and done that. Stopping the negative talk is one of the hardest things to do. Maybe make a point of some positive affirmations--pick one thing you really like about yourself and your body and write that down somewhere you can see easily.

Remember you are WORTH the effort. Hoping the next few days of cooler temps plus the healthy things in your fridge get you rejuvenated!

    I would say that you are drilling up from rock bottom. You know you need positive talk, so start by every time you say something negative, say something positive. I find that I do much better thinking positive. Seems like I eat the same and exercise the same, but if I tell myself I am not losing then I don't lose. Good luck, know that it is tough, we are having heat where I live also, but have been lucky enough to go to the daughter's apartment complex and swim with her or the granddaughter most nights, sure beats the heck out of trying to walk the dog in this heat!
