another day of negative thoughts is teaching me

Friday, July 04, 2014

my second day of observations and i statements. i think it is time to take action on these things''
i have tried to be positive today but it just didnt work so well.

you know what, that is ok. i am reading a lot of blogs from people to help inspire me and help motivate me.

my first blog was a turnaround for me. it is time to start taking action. i need to take action and get this done. i am important enough that i need to do what ever i need to do to stay motivated and get at the top of my game with excercise.

maybe i am starting out to high. maybe jilliian michaels is a little too hard for me at first. maybe intervals are too much for me at first. i am going to walk on an incline steady state. i will increase and decrease incline as i walk. i will also do leslie sanases walking videos. i need weights also so i will do spark people videos for that. this wiill start me easier and get me off on right track and give me confidence. i will do this for 2 weeks and then move up.

i will track my food and eat plenty of veggies. i will eat every 3 hours to keep my sugar level steady. lots of protein and no refined sugar of any kind.

i am starting this tomorrow. i dont care if its a holdiay. i need to start.

some of my thoughts today were.....i feel so ugly with my hair. so sat i am going to go get blond hightlights and get a new style if possible.,

some more were..... saw a pic of myself. didn t look too bad but i def need to work on my body and on my hair. i need self confidence. i am going to look for articles on spark about this.

until tmr..keep being positive

    I agree completely! starting off with Jillian Michaels is (for me) a sure shot way of starting today and stopping by tomorrow or max day after!! Same goes for interval training.. Definitely start slow, start small and slowly add more into your plan whenever you feel like you can take on more! :-)

This is very do-able!! Keep at it!

Good luck!!

    Hey stick with it - it's so hard to change what you think.

I didn't exercise for years because I didn't think I was fit enough and it would hurt my knees. Then I found the 10 minute videos on Spark so I did those and tried to walk a bit more. Now I have moved onto the Jessica Smith website. There are long and short workouts 10 minutes to an hour with weights and without. I can pick and choose depending on how I feel but I try to do 10 mins everyday. My weight loss is iffy I struggle with comfort eating and consistency but I'll get there.

Pick something small to start with. Drinking water or 10 mins of exercise each day, walking to the shops. Start small and build it up and you'll start to see changes. For myself, I try to make a big change and I resent it.

And try to take a moment each day to see something positive each day - even if it's something simple or silly. It's simpler to see the things you want to change and harder to acknowledge what you like already.
