I told myself I am not going to give up on my Oakland Half Marathon run. People at my worked asked if I was running it. I said I was prob going to walk some because of my lack of training. This one worker said, yea you dont look like you feel good. That made me work harder. I read articles on negative self talk. Negative self talk killed my other PR. This race had a no headphone policy. That ...

My dieting has been in the dark lately. My health has been in question lately as well. However, I got a mammogram and I am cleared on that. I found out I have arthritis in one of my toes. I found out because I injured my foot at work and had an x-ray. Who knows what the other foot looks like. My dad has rheumatoid arthritis. My feet is my form of transportation. <BR> I had a chafed breast from running and it did not go away after a few...

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 14:28:19 EST New Shoes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5602149 I over pronate when I run. I got some new orthotics approved through my insurance. They were expensive. They hurt my body real bad. I bought some shoes for overpronation and they work way better.

I hated it. I hated running. I thought "this is not step aerobics." Then 4 years ago, I had a supervisor told me to just jump in and conqueor my fears. I decided to tackle running. <BR> Every time I accomplished another minute of running I felt I met a goal but conquered my fear of low self esteem. My dad said "you cant run 5 miles" then that's what I did, I conquered 5 miles. With many years of low self esteem, it feels goo... Sun, 12 Jan 2014 21:20:54 EST My outlook on how society sees over weight people http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5550713 One lady on a social media site banned her article because of her "No excuse" for being over weight article. However, she did did battle a lot of inner personal conflicts and won some of the fight. However, I told her not every one has the quick success. However, she does share good points and blogs. But as a represented of social media its nice to see both sides. <BR> <BR> <BR> Maria, <BR> <BR> I like to joke that that I am a fatty patty. That is how I joke with my issue of being overw... Tue, 26 Nov 2013 12:10:35 EST Forgivness http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5550015 As I shake my head in frustration of not completing my goals, I ask myself "why can't I do this? Why did my last PR suck? or why do I gain weight instead of losing it? Every month I set goals and bomb them. Why? Maybe because I don't believe in myself. My friend told me, be easy on yourself, its a process. <BR> I think I am very unforgiving of myself. I look at my weight and think "How could I let myself go and lose control?" Or when I run a half and think "this is sooooo hard I cannot d... Mon, 25 Nov 2013 14:45:34 EST Dusting Off My Blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5492740 I have not been on this in awhile. I have been in a funk for a few weeks. I went back to work, working as a para educator in a special needs classroom. I had so much fun with my two year old. The working mom guilt kicked in :( <BR> <BR> I am training for the Malibu International Marathon. I am actually doing the half part though. I do a 10k on Oct 19th at Golden Gate Fields Horse race. I have taken care of my Plantar Facitus. I had gotten inserts specially made. They are so annoyin... Sun, 22 Sep 2013 12:02:32 EST No weight loss lately http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5457245 :( . Maybe if I chase my stress away with meditation and yoga movement I can destress. I think weight gain stems from stress. Whats weird is I have some stress but I'm more stressed out trying to improve myself. Strange huh. Next week I start back my toxic environment of work. Im trying to add more yoga into my lifestyle. Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:08:39 EST Courage http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5450997 Change is hard. I figured that with my emotional eating past eight. I bombed that last week. I found a behavior that I did. I blamed PMS. Now I realized that I will take care of my body before pms. I will sleep better and not take so much caffeine in. I would like to say I got sideswiped and I did, however, I do not want to keep using this excuse. I have this therapist that I used for my anxiety. My anxiety got worse after my mother died. I hate change. However, I past supervisor taugh...

Everyone likes to narrow in on US and Obesity. Lets fix this problem its an epidemic they say. Lets allll blame the Americans. In my opinion we have to work so hard and long hours to make ends meat. This can lead to burn out or catching up with sleep or rest or lack of sleep. We are so tired that we go to foods that boost our energy up quick because we are trying to keep up all th... Sun, 4 Aug 2013 12:33:07 EST O Lucky 8 Ball http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5436693 Ok if your like me, when you have a bowl full of fortune cookies don't you go through all of them until you find the fortune you want? or shake the 8 ball to get the response you want. I guess that is how crazy I get with weighing myself I weigh myself until I get a number I want. Well i do not get much luck. I guess depending on your sodium or the weight of food you eat can add a pound or few on the scale. In addition, if you do not drink enough water you are left bloated. I wish I can... Sun, 28 Jul 2013 22:05:35 EST Day five http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5433807 For a few nights I have been eating a few handfuls of blueberries. I am proud. I feel like im building trust with myself. I know that I can count on not adding a load of calories in my mind. Next week I want to cover sodium and then sugar.

I cut up bell peppers and stuck an apple in the fridge so I know that if im going to night time eat that its healthy. I usually eat crackers, I butter things, breads and anything carby. I would eat a lot too. Last night I ate some peppers and an apple. However in the middle of the night I a few crackers and some ranch. It is a lllot better then what I eat. Sat, 20 Jul 2013 17:54:36 EST Binge Eating/Emotional Eating Sensitivity http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5426754 I have been doing some research and discovery on my eating habits. I do get tired of doing all this exercising but not losing the weight. <BR> I got myself into some habits. I do not want to label it "bad" because it is food. So I take something like toast and want that every night. If I'm stressed ill eat more. I relate the food as part of my structure to winding down. I took a behavior of eating past nine and eating a lot of food and turned it into a habit. <BR> I looked online for way... Fri, 19 Jul 2013 19:43:23 EST My 10k http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5412906 A lot of runners said that the San Francisco Race was hard because of the hills. I found today's 10k hard. It was a trail run in Pinole, CA. They had a few runs at different milages going at the same time. That left it confusing. There were many steep hills. Then there was a steep hill going down and on the left was a drop to the bay. It totally freaked me out. People at this race were chill and it was organized. The swag was not so bad either. <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople....

I want to sign up for the Santa Barbara Marathon. I still want to run a few halfs to get my running down. Im thinking a little in the terms:I will clear it with my doctor first. But, I will start the training plan now. Just in time for a twenty week plan. They have a plan written out this month's runners magazine.

My time was 2 hours and 50 mins. I wish I can have an actual time. The electronic device did not record my time. That was a bummer. One of the major highlights was running across the Golden Gate Bridge(no fog!!). That and I tackled all the major hills. Two no nos I did was I tried beet juice which made me sick from last night. The other is I gulped water down and it gave me a bad side stich so I had to walk ...

Sat, 1 Jun 2013 12:54:04 EST OMGoodness a Reflection http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5368931 I am going to admit I suck at the eating part of losing weight. This is something that i struggle with. When did I get to this place, most of all why? Ok, I have had life stressors. Now, I think "Ok, this is getting old, now its an excuse. I love to eat. I celebrate with food. Sometimes thats ok and others its not. I love the weight watchers way of banking your food privillage. I stress eat, I stress eat, I stress eat. I dont want to do this anymore.

Mon, 27 May 2013 01:54:49 EST Changes and Molding Around http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5338937 When it comes to running it takes a lot of strategic planning and quick changing. One day I may have a headache or the next day I may of only slept two hours. Sometimes we have to change our running schedule based on family or work needs. Sure I may grunt about it but thats the controlling side of my coin. <BR> Im learning more and more every day and sometimes it comes in different forms I can't control everything.

Mon, 29 Apr 2013 01:30:13 EST Why Running http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5327134 How did I get into running? When I was in grade school, I was not lazy. I played hard and I played all kinds of sports (non competitive). Then high school I fell in a funk but I dug myself out of it. I chose walking. I was dedicated. I would walk two times a day and for an hour. I lost a lot weight that I gained. After highschool, I fell into a depression, perhaps because of transitioning into adult hood. <BR> In college, I took a P.E. Class that pulled me out of my once again funk. ... Thu, 18 Apr 2013 01:35:02 EST Spring Break http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5308370 Today was the first day of my spring break. My tot and I were looking at the rain showering out the window. I was like "this figures". However, the rain stopped and I took my son for a walk. My 15 year old neice came over so we can try a yoga class a few blocks away. No one showed up for the class. So my neice and I sat outside a garden cafe and sipped our coffees. My husband got my son down for a nap. So I decided to do a yoga tape and it was nice. Even though I made poor food choices ...

I am starting slow with 2 miles. I don't want to burn out. :/ <BR> <BR> Today was fun even though I was tired. I walked all over town getting items for a Easter Egg Hunt.

Change shakes us up and turns us inside out. What I have learn that change is an opportunity to see you at your strongest faith in yourself. <BR> I still hate change, but I remind myself without change how do you grow? I remember one summer, when I was 27, I was only qualified for a summer camp counselor and the supervisor asked can you be a director? I said ok. That was a hard summer but it showed I can follow through no matter what...

On top of that the house im renting is being sold so there are people coming in to view the house. So my family and I left the house going to the beach. It was so beautiful out.

I like doing this because im in total focus. Sometimes I go in full exercise freak mode. I will just do it for the quanity not quality but today it was quality. I loved that part of me today. I want to be in the moment when I do things and not rush. As I was waiting for my husband I went to a tea house and got some coffee and sat and enjoyed==wahoo what a day.

I admit sometimes I take crazy routes to losing weight, like a lot working out. Or I will eat healthy but its high in fat and calories. <BR> <BR> Im getting better.

I want to take resposibility on my eating behaviors. As I start journeling what I eat I feel embarassed. Usually, I shy away and stop writing. What this does is it takes me away from being accountable. Now, I make myself write every thing. Ok I admit I dont write my tiny bites down. <BR> One night I seen an eating behavior that bothered me. I read some good emotional eating articles that helped me. I also read it ta...

I learned a lot about my eating. I went to Burger King. This one Crossiont ham breakfast thing was not as high as I thought it was going to be. But, I said is this worth it? It did not feel healthy to me. Maybe I could make a healthier version at my home. <BR> I loved learning about portion control. I know every diet site talks about how much you should eat.
