Oh August... how did you get here?

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Well I managed to maintain my weight but I havent dropped any. I have decided to not look at my scale for a while. I swear that thing lies to me. I went from 181 one day... to 189. No idea how that happened. Is it even possible to gain 8 lbs in a day?! I dont know but I am so ridiculously unhappy about it.

But I am aiming to be more positive. I set a few small goals for myself to help with debt a few months ago and its working. Slowly but surely getting my debt down and my life back. I guess I should look at my weight like that. It may not be Leaps and Bounds but millimeter by millimeter. And those can equal inches, feet, yards, miles if I let them keep going. I have always been an "All or Nothing" person. If I cant have it all, I dont want anything. Maybe thats a horrible way of thinking. I can feel that negative thought. :/ I am not "happy" unless I am punishing myself for something, I should stop that...

Brighter side, I have invested the 8 dollars every 2 weeks to buy Poland Spring sports cap water bottles from Sams Club. I like having them just around the house cause then I can drink til my heart's content. Anyone else ever feel more thirsty after they drink water? Sometimes I think its made to make me drink more.

So one more episode of the Nanny in my room and then out to the living room to do at least 10 minutes on the treadmill and watch Charmed.

The act of putting on my sneakers some days feels like a punishment. I really need a new way of thinking about this.... Help?

    That sounds like things that happen to me too.
    In a day, the scale has shown a gain of 1.5 kg.
    I have decided to stop focusing on the dratted scale as it only
    gets me depressed. Just focus on eating right and exercising.
    Persistence pays off.

    I don't know if this will help, but I hope it will. I just think of all the things I'm doing now, with Spark, as gifts to myself and my body. There's nothing "wrong" with the way I am - I can just be better. The healthy eating, during the last 3 months, has become my new normal. I like the things I'm eating and I don't feel deprived. The fitness is a bit trickier - I have never been a fitness buff, but I can remember times when I was more active than I have been lately and I remember being happy about it. I tried fitness videos and discovered that it's not me. So I just focus on things I like to do like walk my dog and work in my yard. The 10 minute thing works for me too. I keep to the "just ten minutes" plan and it almost always turns out to be more. I'm sorry I went so long, but I just hope you will find a way to cut yourself a break. Spark is all about doing good stuff for yourself!

    I to have a scale that fights with me. Sometimes i have to put it in time out for bad behavior. I hate exercise but i know i need it so i just take it one day at a time. Ive set up small awards for little things like exercising three times a wk for a monththen i get a pair of earrings. It keeps me motivated.
