December Goals

Monday, December 09, 2013

Hi all! I have been thinking of how I wanted to write my next blog for a couple days. I've had a lot on my mind and I think I am going to just go with the straight forward touching base approach.

First of all, the office is the office. There was some more office drama. Everyday I am trying to figure out how to deal with it. I will most likely stay and just deal with it. Learning there is no easy button to life. The sooner I learn this the better. Sounds like I am being tough on myself but it's part of being an adult. To help me with the stuff at work, I put the photo below on my phone to see everyday. I think I am going to clean and reorganize my desk which may include moving my screen so nosy co-worker can't watch me! Bwahaha!

Next, I have been thinking A LOT about my gained weight and where I want to take my health and fitness. I think I am going to go a different approach than I originally used when I lost 100 pounds. It's different this time with a full time job, boyfriend, and so on. Anyhow, I think I am going to let go of my attachment of the scale and go with working toward a healthy lifestyle.

That brings me to the other thought. I am done with being guilty about eating food. In the last few weeks, I have noticed I have a lot of should or should not eat. And why should I not eat these foods? Isn't a healthy lifestyle eating in moderation? I want to focus on that from now on.

With this different approach, not focusing on weight loss, and focusing on living a healthy lifestyle. This does mean the weight will come off slowly because I am not going to be feel bad about eating pizza, a cookie or indulging in food. I want to live life to the fullest and I don't want to feel guilty anymore. With the thought of it coming off slowly, I think I want to aim for a two pound loss each month which means I would lose 24 pounds in a year, most of the weight I gained.

Also, I wanted to share that I am making progress with getting back to who I was, who I am. I ran 2.5 miles yesterday with slight hip tension. It felt great to see that distance again. Maybe I can work back up to 3 miles again by the end of December. It has really been bothering me and it's good to see my running is getting back to normal after working at it. If I can get it back 3 miles by end of December, I could train for a half marathon! emoticon

Besides getting my running up 3 miles again, I have also been working on working out 4 times a week. That has been consistent for the most part. I think I am going to try to workout Monday-Friday in the morning, walk at lunch, and lift in the evenings. Sounds like a lot but I think it would keep my stress (and emotional eating) in check. At the very least I want to eat healthy and exercise more!

    Don't let the jerks at work sabotage you. I like that you have a plan to deal with the busy body. I also like that you have recalibrated your mind set to positive supportive and affirming thoughts and actions. You sound happier.

    I see the words . . . If I can get it back 3 miles by end of December, I could train for a half marathon!

That is confidence. It's real, strong confidence. I'm routinely running over 4 miles during the week, and 5 or 6 miles on weekends, and I have niggling doubts about being able to train up to a half marathon.

I admire the confidence you have that you can train to a half, when you're still trying to get back up to 3 miles. You just might get to that half marathon before I do.

    Good job! It really does help to focus on health. That's what works for me.

LOVE the picture for your desk. And good for you for turning your screen! I'd do that too.

That's fabulous that you're back to activities you enjoy. Keep it up, my dear!

HUGS and much success.

Tis are pretty status quo here. Jas is cranky with the job search, but what can you do. Gotta be done.

    Sounds like your on the right track. As for your work issues. Remember no matter where you work there will be office drama. As I always tell my staff and try to remember myself, You are in charge of your own happiness! Do not give anyone else that power! emoticon
