I hit a slump of just not quite caring. I cared enough to not do serious damage, but not enough to progress any further. Ah well, I think most people hit that point periodically and it is all in how you manage it and how you get out of it. <BR> <BR> Don't know how I managed to get out this time, but I'm feeling pretty fired up again. Let's hope this lasts more than a couple of days! <BR> <BR> Today I did another ... Sat, 18 Nov 2006 22:08:47 EST Some more on running http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=293854 This past month has been more a maintanance phase in terms of weightloss and running. Long hours on the computer has done some damage to my back, so I've been visiting the chiropractor a fair bit. Between that and long hours on the computer (work), I haven't spent the time on me that I need to. <BR> <BR> But I'm back at it! <BR> <BR> I went to the gym one morning this week and ran more than I had in years (11 min out of 30). It felt great! Yesterday I walked the dog and managed to run...

Does the distance between you and the finish line deflate your motivation? Often we forget that goals and dreams are not achieved overnight, but rather in a series of small steps. Progress towards your goals should also be counted as victorious! Stop looking at the end result to bring you the greatest joy. Instead, celebrate the ways in which your life is gravitating towards that desired result. Nothing is guaranteed... Sat, 9 Sep 2006 07:56:33 EST Winning victory against yourself (reflection) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=256838 "No one likes to lose. The thrill of victory after competition is hard to match. But the wins that leave the most significant, long-term impressions are the ones where you win against yourself. Beating a friend in a game of hoops is much less meaningful than setting a personal best time while running. We live in a highly competitive world, and everything around us screams that we've got to be number one in order to feel successful. Truly though, the best measuring sticks are your past and you... Mon, 4 Sep 2006 08:06:30 EST Recommitment Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=256548 The good thing of the past 2 years is that I have gone down. The bad thing it is at a rate of less than a pound a month. I have no one to blame but myself. I allow myself to get derailed on too many days by tempting sweets. I have too many excuses for not exercising, for eating a little too much, for ..... <BR> <BR> Anyway ... <BR> <BR> Today is the first day of my new leaf. I will lose this weight. I will get my exercise in. I will eat correctly. Actually, let's do it this way ... <...
