Continuing on...The next steps

Friday, June 21, 2013

Yesterday I recommitted to this journey to be a smaller healthier person. Yesterday was my 27th wedding anniversary. So my dream is to be able to wear my wedding dress for my 28th. Wouldn't that be awesome. At 2 pounds a week I should be very close for the at the next anniversary.

The negative voice in my head is telling me I haven't done it before. However one time has to be the time that I succeed.

I got some food that follows my eating plan. I have exercise worked out. I can make time to do this during the summer. Then I will get new good habits when school starts and I go back to work in the fall.

My summer plan:
I will continue to get up and ride my stationary bike.
I will be more consistent with weight training.
I will have a bowl of chopped bite size vegetables ready for a quick snack when I want a little something. (Easier to grab than the carbs I tend to gravitate towards. )
I have began "Beck Diet Solution" I love the idea but I have only done the first few pages. since it it summer I can make time for that.

I also have some fun nonfood activities to do with my 2 youngest. We will get a pool membership. We will also go to the park and the library during the summer.

I am also looking forward to learning to bead with my daughter. It will be wonderful. I hope.

I also on the first page of my Success Journal I wrote a letter to myself about what I want to have accomplished next year. Kind of a letter from the future to now. That was fun so now I just need to realize that each day counts and I will make it happen.

I hope to learn from the Beck book how to silence the voice of doubt that creeps into my head. I don't know if I am afraid of success or failure or just afraid to show who I really am to anyone including myself. But, here goes. . . I will give this a chance. I can do this.

    This is a great list of things to do. I read your "getting traction" blog too. I know, at times I feel like I'm just not making progress and that feeling of "starting again" used to be so frustrating. Hmmm. I have been reading some good blogs today. Your one line about "reaching for the carbs" struck me. This is definitely a 90% food problem on my page. And a 90% food solution. We can do this! The key is every day saying "what decisions can I make today towards finding that smaller me?"

    I liked TEDYBEAR2838's:

    You are in control of that voice. Look at all you have done. There is so much more that you will do. Sometimes it just takes practice. (In my case Lots of practice) My granddaughter has shown me patience and perseverance helped her learn how to walk. She did not succeed at her first attempt... there were many attempts over several months. Each attempt brought her a little bit closer to her goal. Some days were good, some not so much so, but with practice over time changes take hold.

    Just remember we are human and we get to choose our future.

    You can and will do it. Look at what you have done with/for your children... so I know you have it within you to do what you need to do for you.

    Big goals only succeed when you break them down to little steps and a day at a time. Great plan! emoticon

    We do have to silence the voice in our heads.
    Got to remember keep telling yourself this:



    I am learning to get rid of the hurtful thoughts
    and fill my mind with the Love of God &
    thoughts that He would approve of. He loves
    us, so we need to love ourselves.

    Good luck in your sucess. Te best program I have found is just using the Spark Program, its the best method I have found in all my years of dieting. I will turn 58 and I have tried every diet on the planet. There are no magic tricks just everyday moderation in eating and exercise. I know it takes time but the most critical part of the program is using the nutrition and exercise trackers, reading to get the proper knowledge and connecting with others for the support so you stick with the program. They have the research that supports this program just look at all the success stories. I am one of them and I feel extremely blessed to have a site that cost nothing and offers so much!
