If I don't get this blog accomplished I know I am going to be not where I want to be in the future, so here goes:
Six months ago I was really a couch potato, I keep on making excuses for not exercising.
Then, The first of MAY arrived and I just decided that my life was going to be useless to anyone in my path if I didn't do something about me (OK,yes, I was down that path once before lost 50 pounds and was happy) I began to realize that I was emotional about too many things that were happening in my life and boy did the food do the trick. Went to my favorite Doctor and weighed in at 376 pounds. I was so emotional about it. He sat me down and told me TODAY WAS A NEW DAY, AND LETS TAKE A FEW STEPS AT A TIME, We will do this together. He made appointments to see a dietician and a Diet Pycologist. Well the dietician set out a plan of not eating anything that's white (bread, rice, potatoes, etc.). Drinking lots of water and NO MORE SODA!. The Pycologist made me realize that I needed to find a way to try not to please everyone in my life and start pleasing me. He said my family needed to hear the word NO more often. Then also we worked on ways with the dietician about not going for the frig when the emotions do come out.
JUNE came along and again saw my favorite Doc, weighed in at 357. Doc was overjoyed that I was succeeding. My small steps were being taken and I was getting further on my journey.
JULY came and went I am now in the 340's, but have reached a plateau.
AUGUST was a very emotional month. My Dad was diagnosed with Dementia, and now is in a nursing home because he needs 24/7 medical care. My brother was taking care of him and he himself is not in good health. My sister and I took over and had everything in place where My dad would be taken care of and live close by. Then my sisters house is now under two feet of water because of Isaac. It was the first time I heard my sister cry. So, I have taken a step back and yes now am working on the two steps forward.
NOW: My family is now recovering from all the things that we have gone thou in August. I really learned a lot that month, My dad is getting used to not living at home and is doing a lot better. My brother is getting the rest he needs, and my sister is taking it a day at a time getting her house back into a home. ME I looked at my trackers and will figure out what I need to get out of the no weight lose rut.
SEPTEMBER is here:
1. My first goal is 10 pounds down by the last day of the month.
2. My cardio and strength training will be done first thing in the morning.
3. I will have a bowl of fruit on the dining room table. So I will not make the extra steps to the frig when I am emotional.
4. I will plan my meals every two weeks.
5. I will have Me time daily.
