No more infections YAY! <BR> <BR> I just did 35 minutes on the treadmill. I was enjoying it that much, that the first 30 minutes FLEW really quick! <BR> <BR> I have put on a couple of kilos since not being able to exercise, but I'm not going to let it get me down. These things happen. <BR> <BR> Can't wait to get my fitness up again and feel healthy. <BR> It all starts again from today <BR> <em>249</em> Sat, 27 Oct 2012 03:03:27 EST Basketball http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5089674 Caught up with an old friend today. We went to watch some men play basketball. I had a good perve. <em>20</em> <BR> <BR> It made me think about all the sports I did when I was a kid, and gave up when I became so anxious about people looking at my body that I quit EVERYTHING. I used to play basketball, netball, tennis, I did Judo etc. I miss it. I think I may start basketball up when i lose weight and get fit enough for my knees not to give me grief. <em>299</em> <BR> <BR> I've decid... Sun, 7 Oct 2012 07:22:24 EST 7 weeks of being sick but not giving up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5087439 Well it's been about 7 weeks that I've been sick and unable to exercise regularly. Good news: I've lost weight anyway just from being sick :) Even after 7 weeks I'm still motivated to get back into exercise when I feel better. Normally once I stop all the motivation goes...not at all EVEN AFTER 7 WEEKS! <BR> <BR> Dr. has found 2 things wrong with me, that we're in the process of fixing. I see a specialist on the 26th of this month. I've missed a lot of work which I'm a bit worried about, be... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 05:56:23 EST BACK INTO IT! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5074021 I've been sick for over 6 weeks now. I have only exercised a handful of times. My Doctor said I have to start off just doing 15 minutes a day of exercise. I did the firsts 15 minutes today but it was hard to stop. I just want to get back into it. 15 minutes just doesn't seem like enough. <BR> <BR> I'm also unsure of whether I'm supposed to do 15 minutes a day for a week, or 4 days, or 3 days. I just don't want to over do it, but i don't want to get bored by only doing 15 minutes on too many... Tue, 25 Sep 2012 07:42:24 EST Exercised for 1st time in AGES http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5050581 Well after about 5 weeks of being unwell and unable to exercise I finally got on the treadmill yesterday and did a 35 minute workout. <BR> <BR> I slept all day...hopefully it had nothing to do with yesterday's exercise. I just wanna get back into it hardcore!!! Sun, 9 Sep 2012 06:03:16 EST Got a ride in an ambulance - Paramedic was hot! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5028799 Well I've been extremely sick with infections for about the past 3 weeks. Finally this morning I fainted and was carted off to hospital. Tests reveal I'm still fighting the infections and I just need to rest and drink electrolytes. <BR> <BR> Bad news: Not allowed to exercise for a while :( :( :( I'm missing it so much! <BR> <BR> Fri, 24 Aug 2012 04:39:07 EST Getting my energy back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5025821 After being extremely sick for over 2 weeks, I finally had the energy to move around. <BR> <BR> I cleaned my house, took out the bins and did a load of washing. This is a VERY big step since I've been dizzy and exhausted from just having a shower for the passed few weeks. See Doctor tomorrow. Will ask when I'm allowed to get back in to real exercise! <BR> <BR> Can't wait to go back to the gym and do the dance and combat classes!!! Wed, 22 Aug 2012 03:41:20 EST No exercise for 2 weeks CHANGE IN PERCEPTION http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5022949 I've been missing the gym and the treadmill while I've been sick. I've had 2 infections in a row, then I got the flu. I've had a fever to 2 weeks straight. Been on heaps of antibiotics and the most amount of panadol I've ever had in my life. Hands down the sickest I've EVER been in my life. I've literally slept for the past 2 weeks. The dizziness and pain in the throat have gone now though which is good. <BR> <BR> I can't wait to get back into it! <BR> <BR> I'm in a mindset I've never bee... Mon, 20 Aug 2012 09:02:57 EST OVER HALF WAY TO MY 1ST GOAL! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5014547 While walking passed the mirror today I noticed my weightloss! I looked in the mirror yesterday and didn't see it. I wonder how that works? Anyway, I felt so good that I jumped on the scales and despite being sick recently I have still managed to lose another kilogram! <BR> <BR> I'm very proud of my progress. I'll be honest and say I'm eating the exact same things I always have. The change in my body is purely due to exercise. I've lost 4.6 kilograms (10 pounds) since the start of June! <BR... Tue, 14 Aug 2012 02:07:25 EST FEELING SO GOOD! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5011628 My infection has gone and I just finished 55 minutes on the treadmill. Yesterday I managed to do 35 minutes. It feels SOOOO SOOOO GOOD to get back to exercising!!! I missed it so much. It is my new hobby that I'm sure I will never stop doing. <BR> <BR> I feel good during exercise and after exercise. I feel so much better emotionally and I can concentrate better. I absolutely love exercise and I love tracking my fitness minutes and reading all the positive and motivational stuff on this site.... Sun, 12 Aug 2012 02:40:55 EST GOING MENTAL! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5006051 6 days without exercise due to being sick. It's doing my head in! I just want to get on the treadmill, do zumba, or sh'bam or body combat. I have no energy and I'm not allowed to exercise until my gland is down. <BR> <BR> I've been at home doing nothing, trying to keep occupied by playing on the computer, watching tv and doing art work. I'm soooooo sick of it. I can't wait to exercise GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. And I'm sick of this temperature. Hot, cold, hot cold. PICK A TEMPERATURE AND STICK TO... Wed, 8 Aug 2012 01:42:26 EST Sick of being sick :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5004001 I'm so exhausted still. My right gland is still so sore and swollen. The Dr revised the "virus" idea and said it was an infection of the gland now and I'm on antibiotics. The pain hasn't gone away at all, but the fever has gone a little. <BR> <BR> I'm disappointed coz I couldn't go to class, I'm not allowed to exercise until the gland goes down and I had to reschedule a very important interview that was supposed to be tomorrow. <BR> <BR> I just want to get better so i can exercise again. I... Mon, 6 Aug 2012 19:57:28 EST Reason I've been struggling these last few days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5000457 Well it looks like I've been fighting something off. My right gland is so swollen that I've been put on panadeine forte for the pain. It's not an infection. It's either a bad virus or glandular fever. I don't think it would be glandular fever, because I don't want it to be. I get results next week whether I have it or not. <BR> <BR> Has anyone had glandular fever? Does it come on really quick? How long does it take to recover? Sat, 4 Aug 2012 08:52:45 EST Been struggling these last few days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4997382 I hadn't exercised for 2 days until today. (55 mins of treadmill which felt great) <BR> <BR> I have been having trouble getting to sleep but then I'll be so tired in the morning that I sleep in until 10am. I was so exhausted the other day that I didn't go to my class. I've also been unable to control my cravings for food and over eating heaps. I'm really struggling and really hope it's not a relapse of depression again. Although I did break up with my fiance just over 4 weeks ago and I've be... Thu, 2 Aug 2012 02:12:59 EST MOTIVATION MOTIVATION MOTIVATION http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4991249 The first thing I did when I got up this morning was get on the internet and look for positive quotes. I printed them off and laminated them. <BR> <BR> The most important one for me so far is "Suffer the pain OF DISCIPLINE or suffer the pain OF REGRET" because it's a reminder to stop myself from emotionally eating. I have stuck that quote to the tv (because I do most of my emotional eating in front of the tv) and I'm going to put it also on my fridge and the pantry door. <BR> <BR> The othe... Sun, 29 Jul 2012 03:54:29 EST POEM: My experience of exercise recently! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4988986 Exercise you have been my saviour, <BR> Day without you and I start to crave-ya. <BR> Look forward to you every day, <BR> Feeling good, this is the best way. <BR> <BR> Going to gym and doing dance class, <BR> I'm beginning to get a pretty good ass! <BR> Every week I notice my tummy is starting to shrink, <BR> I look in the mirror, smile and give myself a wink. <BR> <BR> You are the best remedy for anxiety and depression, <BR> Thanks to you, my mental problems have gone in to repression. <BR... Fri, 27 Jul 2012 09:27:55 EST ALMOST HALF WAY TO MY 1ST GOAL! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4981127 YAY! I've lost 3.6kg! I'm almost half way to my first goal! I am very proud of myself! <BR> <BR> I'm loving exercise. I don't know why I didn't do this before. I feel so great when I exercise. I'm loving the process of exercise and the weight loss is just a bonus! <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> Sat, 21 Jul 2012 23:35:39 EST LOST 1KG IN A WEEK http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4969576 Just got on the scale. Lost 1kg this week! I've probably put on a lot of muscle too because I've been working really hard! I'm proud! Sat, 14 Jul 2012 04:35:10 EST BODY COMBAT CLASS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4966760 So proud of myself for doing the body combat class at the gym. One whole hour of intense work. It had more jumping than the last time I went. I did very well and I noticed I am getting kind of fit! <BR> <BR> Feel VERY happy and proud of myself! Thu, 12 Jul 2012 08:23:28 EST DISCIPLINE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4963301 I am finally becoming disciplined when it comes to exercise. I was at the hair dressers and felt really tired. When I got out I felt like just going home, sitting on the couch and maybe sleeping. I said to myself "No, exercise will wake you up" so I made the decision to get on the treadmill for 35 minutes. I'm more awake and I feel great! <BR> Tue, 10 Jul 2012 04:14:05 EST TREADMILL LIFTED MOOD! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4960053 Was feeling so yuck, anxious and sad this morning. I got on the treadmill for 35 minutes and I have felt great for the rest of the day! YAY! Exercise is sooooo good for the mood! <BR> Sun, 8 Jul 2012 03:55:39 EST STICKIN TO SMALL PLATE MEALS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4958801 I've decided to control my proportions of food. I'm using a small plate and I get filled up really easily with easily 1/2 of what I used to eat. I've been doing this for 1 week now and it's been working well! (Also I've been stressed so the nausea may be helping the lack of appetite) <BR> <BR> I must say that I'm happy I have stuck to my small-plate meals! Sat, 7 Jul 2012 03:20:54 EST Feel really good after my ab workout! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4955869 I'm feeling very good right now! I can feel my back muscles and abs already. <BR> <BR> I did 16 minutes of the Zumba ab workout and then did some back and ab exercises on the swiss ball. I find it amazing that strength training got my heart rate up to the same as doing cardio. (although the zumba did have a bit of cardio in it) <BR> <BR> Thu, 5 Jul 2012 03:20:02 EST I'VE LOST 2 KILOS!!!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4954501 I've been doing 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week. Sometimes I have gone to the gym and done very light activities. <BR> <BR> I'VE LOST 2 KILOS! I'M SO HAPPY! I CAN DO IT! Wed, 4 Jul 2012 01:15:57 EST Guilty and Sad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4940998 I did REALLY well last week avoiding crappy food and doing keeping up with my exercise goals. <BR> <BR> Saturday and Sunday I ate chocolate and chips and lots of it. I now feel guilty and I'm really sad. I feel like I've stuffed it all. Mon, 25 Jun 2012 02:31:25 EST HARD CLASS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4935432 WOW! That Body Combat class at the gym was sooo sooo sooo hard! I felt a little down during the class and a bit after because I couldn't keep up. I've now realised it was a tough class and I did well by doing the whole hour! Wed, 20 Jun 2012 22:16:16 EST VERY EARLY START http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4935060 Well, on the days I don't have TAFE I usually drag my self out of bed at 10-10:30am. I got up at 6:00am this morning! I couldn't sleep because I am so excited about a "Body Combat" class I'm going to do this morning at the gym. <BR> <BR> Hopefully I do well in it. Hopefully I'm not too intimidated by all the good-looking people. <BR> <BR> HOPE MY MOTIVATION CONTINUES UNTIL 9:45AM THIS MORNING AND I ACTUALLY GO TO THE CLASS!!! <BR> <BR> I generally burn out from excitement.
