Sounds like we both just need some peace Kelly. You had it for a time so you can hold that close. I've no choice but to endure the noise from time to time. So I try to enjoy the quiet when I can and embrace the noise when it's there. It is life, after all.

But a peaceful lake somewhere sounds a bit like another version of our dream retirement. Chris wants to be on a river where he can fish. Otherwise, all the same ideas are there.

Have a great week!

I woke up before the family yesterday (normal) and took my coffee and my book outside.
The temperature was perfect and the sun was peeking through the trees out front. The foliage on the trees is thick now and the lawns are luciously green, so for a few precious moments, I could fool myself into forgetting that I live in a postage stamp neighbourhood in the suburbs. The only sounds to be heard were the sounds of nature around me - birds chirping, squirrels and chipmunks skittering about... not much else at all.

My soul was happy. I breathed deeply, said a prayer of thankfulness and wished I had a journal to write it down - didn't want to interrupt the 'nature groove' to log on and blog about it... nor did I want to miss a moment of it by going inside to track down pen and paper. And so, I just sat and enjoyed it and finished my wonderful book.

Moments later, I heard a Harley cruising by on a nearby highway... the little children next door started to cry... the dog down the street started to bark and the traffic was audible from the street. The city came to life.

Sigh.

I realize that it is my dream to move to a small, simple home in the country, on a little water... with no neighbours. Sounds a little anti-social, I suppose, but that is where my soul finds rest.

On to week 2 of this gluten-free thing. Not any noticeable changes to report - but I was pretty jealous watching my family enjoy their BBQ hamburgers this weekend! I will keep it up and give it an honest shot - but at the same time I am on a journey to self-acceptance. I'm pretty tired of feeling badly about myself and my body all the time. And for what? It's really time to be healthy for health's sake... and try to let go of the vanity that so often drives me.

Not a wimp at all Kelly. My brother ran for years. He ran countless marathons. In later years, he stopped the marathons because he realized he was bordering on obsession but he continued to run. As he started to have more and more issues with joints, muscles, etc, he decided running was no longer an option. He plays softball, lifts weights, bikes, walks, and even surfs! He's still in excellent shape. Possibly even better shape than he was in his running days. If a lifelong runner can give it up and still find ways to stay in shape, I think that's really saying something.

I'm with you. I've always loved to run. It seems you get so much more out of a run than some other workout that takes the same amount of time. But I know I can't right now because I'm simply too heavy and it would put too much stress on my already overworking joints. The pain you experience should be telling you something. You know it's possible you are hurting yourself in the long run and you still have a lot of life to live in that body of yours. So be safe and take it easy. Only you can decide what to do.

Hope you're having a great week. Mine is improving and that's something.

Love ya! Mary

Well... I'm on week 2 of my run training and, although the actually running continues to be a struggle, I'm recovering faster and not as sore. That's good news.

I am 100% committed to doing this until the end of June for the race with my daughter but really need to do some soul searching after that about running. I don't know why I have such a hard time making healthy decisions around this... but the two big factors are:
1. I WANT to be able to run. Once I establish my base, I enjoy the sport and find it tremendously rewarding.
2. I have osteoarthritis and it hurts. My hips are VERY sore again since getting back to running and I have had several people suggest to me that I should NOT be running. Makes me feel like a wimp.

That's my dilemma in a nutshell and I don't have a good answer today.

I'm so grateful that each day is a new opportunity.

I joined the 'Spring into Fitness" challenge and am enjoying it. At the same time, I have started running again to train for a race I signed up with at the end of June with my youngest daughter. Yesterday was my 2nd training run. Although my mind was refreshed when I completed it, my body is feeling every one of the extra pounds I'm carrying... and every inch of me is sore!

Some of it is just good muscle soreness from a good workout. Some of it is arthritis rearing it's ugly head in protest. Either way, I'm committed to this for 8 weeks - 3 runs/week to prepare for the race. And once that's done, it's time to reassess whether running is the right sport for me - and if not - then what?

In any case, today will be a cardio REST day for me... just my 10 minute video with coach Nicole and that's all for today.

I know about that Kelly! I'm hungry too. I didn't sleep well last night either and that doesn't help. Something works a few times and then no more. Just don't know how to figure that one out. Have a great day!

no sleep again!

I did get to work this morning and the thought passed through my head that I AM going to succeed.... followed quickly by "gosh, I'm hungry!".

LOL... I am my own worst enemy, no doubt.
Pressing on...

Thanks Mary! I had a terrible sleep last night - supersore after the big walks... BUT, I feel great today and I'm in a really good mood.
Hoping the week will continue to be good.
thanks for popping by!

Took 2 walks today and ended up walking 10k! Guessing I'm going to be sore, but it felt GREAT to be out in the sunshine!

I'm one week in to being on track with my food and fitness again and decided to abstain from wine altogether for a month, as well as sweets. I have learned that my body does not let go of the weight if I am taking in even a little alcohol. And so I'm giving it up again for awhile.

Praying that the scale will cooperate - or at least my clothing!

On to week 2...

Hey Kelly! Those are great things to look at. But then, I've always known how strong you are. Thanks for sticking with me through all the drama. All my strength right now is going towards the thought that this will all get better. Hope you're having a good week!

Hey FEELINGBEACHY... thanks - I'm glad you found my post encouraging.
My biggest encouragment to you is this... try not to spend too much time thinking about the long run or the big picture when it comes to your weight loss journey. Take one day at a time, try to focus on the positives... the long run will come in time all by itself! You'll be amazed when you look back and see what you've accomplished!
All the best to you on your journey!

HealthyforHim- love your post! You are strong. I cannot do any of those things. I think I will remind myself of what I can do more often instead if beating myself up. Thanks for the encouragement to me too! This is my last day of phase 1. I will weigh tomrw. I wanted to lose 10 lbs but I don't think il get quite there. For phase 2 I am making low carb lactation cookies to have one a day as my first carb per day added for the first week of phase 2. I'm also returning to work from maternity leave next week so I'm hoping that will help my milk supply while having to pump more often. Sometimes I get very discouraged to think how hard these 2 weeks have been and knowing I still have so much weight to lose. Il get there tho and I'm excited to start exercising next week!

Well, I've been feeling pretty frustrated with my body and needed to do a status check.
Despite the extra weight despite the injury despite not fitting in my clothes

I CAN still run 3k in under 22minutes.
I CAN plank for 1minute 10 seconds.
I CAN do 30 pushups in 45 seconds.
And I CAN hold a chair squat for 1 min 45 sec.

I. Am. Still. Strong.

Hello! I'm new on here. On day 5 of the beach and yesterday was really hard but today seems a little easier. It's so hard when I'm not hometo get decent food. Yesterday was church potluck and I was not prepared. I have 35-40 lbs to lose. My baby is only 1 month old so exercise besides walking isn't really an option. However wheny body is ready is like to train for a half marathon. For now I just need I lose weight to fit into my work clothes before I go back to work in 2 weeks

That's really what it's all about Kelly. For me, I think, I'll have that when I find balance. Just have to figure out how to do that.

Have a great weekend! Spring is here technically. The reality can't be too far behind.

Love ya! Mary

I want to enjoy my life.
Not sure why that seems to be such a challenge right now - I have much to be thankful for!

Certainly praying that the spring weather (it's coming... I have to believe it) and sunshine will make a big difference!

In the meantime, I'm counting my blessings, doing my best to eat well, trying to move in a way that doesn't cause more pain... just trying to be happy.

Well... I'm working hard at this thing.
A full week of eating well within range, 2 training runs + 2 walks and some toning.
Trying to get 7-8hrs/night.
Purposing to have a positive outlook.


... and I'm up 3 pounds.
That's all I have to say about that.

Grateful that the weekend is here and I can have some time to rest and reconnect with hubby.
Grateful to be able to get out and move.
Going to suck it up and go buy some clothes that fit... I'm feeling discouraged trying to stuff myself into my clothes like a sausage. Grateful for a little extra $$ to do that.

Best I can do today!!!

2 good days under my belt. Didn't sleep very well last night, so I"m a little foggy today. However, the pain is much better and the outlook is bright.

Went for a HUGE walk at the track yesterday .. almost 7k in an hour.
Lots of pain last night and this morning... BUT good food choices, weight is down 2 pounds from a normal Monday morning and I feel in control.
Believing that as the weight comes off, the pain will go!

Off to a strong Monday...

Co-hosted a 65th birthday party for my Dad yesterday with my sis. On my feet all day and the food was certainly reasonable.
The party was great, shared some memories and good family time.
Today I'm up and tackling my own chores at home heading to the track later for a walk.

Continue to be very, very sore pretty much everywhere. Not sure what's up, but for now I'm just going to carry on and believe it's just the extra weight and the processed foods I've been eating.

Happy March!

Sometimes we hear a word in due season... and it changes everything.

I went to a workshop yesterday on professional accountability, and it as really good. But some of the minor comments made by the presenter were GREAT.

I woke up this morning and decided that enough is enough.
No one can change my situation except me.
I have to find time in my crazy busy life to take care of myself.
AND, I've let the attitudes of others drag me into a mire of negativity that has had really bad consequences in my physical and emotional state.

All those cliche motivational phrases are swimming in my head today and I am determined to just make a change. Flip the switch. Don't sacrifice tomorrow for what I want right now....and all that good stuff.

I'm tired of feeling tired, sad, sore, anxious and not in control of my own being.
Enough.
That all ends right now and I WILL get back on track to being who I am, and doing the things I need to do to take care of myself!

Period.

I know how it can be Kelly. For me, the pain thing is a big motivator. Things were getting really hard as the weight went up. I don't have the other whammies like arthritis to add to it though. Mine has been almost exclusively weight related and so I'm already starting to feel a bit better. I hope you can find your motivation. Have you ever been evaluated for SAD? Maybe the season is just hard on you. Or you could just be overwhelmed. You might need to find a way to get some stuff off your plate. I have some things piling up a bit right now but I'm choosing me for a bit. Hopefully, when I start feeling better, I can direct some of that energy to the other stuff.

Feel better girlfriend. Seems you've been a bit down for a while now. Something has to give. But I know you're strong. You'll figure it out!

Love ya! Mary

Well, I'm not doing very well journalling, am I?
Actually, I'm not doing a great job of taking care of me at all these days... SO busy with work and family and yet I feel like I"m constantly falling short of doing what I need to do for my girls and hubby.
On top of that, whether it's arthritis or something else, I am dealing with a lot of pain. By evening everything hurts and it's all I can do to climb the stairs and tumble into bed.

Pretty sure the extra weight has a lot to do with it, but it sure is wearing me out.

I had a good and productive weekend, having some time alone with my hubby (long over due) and accomplishing some big tasks at home that have been waiting. I feel good about that... but still struggling. Went for a short walk yesterday - just 20 min or so and it felt GREAT to be outside, sun on my face and moving my body. However, it was pretty treacherous - there's so much ice around that I had to be REALLY careful not to fall.

Looking forward to all the benefits of spring... and most of all the ability to be outside and moving a whole lot more!

I'm here Mar... just not journalling much!
2 sleeps until my annual girls scrapbooking getaway and I can't wait!

How am I?
Personally - crazy busy, and quite content.
Physically... heavier than I want to be and trying to work at that. Hmm... and my wrinkles are deepening. Age is starting to bother me a little... get over it, right?!
Professionally - crazy busy and quite content!

That's it in a nut shell.
Hope you're well too honey! Thanks for calling me out!

Happy Monday Kelly! I hope you're doing okay. Neither one of us is checking in much again. You know we do better when we do. Check in when you get a chance and I'm going to try to be better about it too.

Started putting away the Christmas stuff and ended up in a MAJOR storage clean out! Needs to be done but sheesh! What a mess! AND, how does stuff get so dusty IN A CLOSET?!

Anyway, off to do some running around and then I'll have to come back and deal with the fallout from my storage escapade! LOL

I always ran to prepare for races too Kelly. But I do like to run. Just not feasible for me right now at this weight. It's really something I want to work towards.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

I had a lot of fun on the Wii yesterday. I think I'm going to try to find the Zumba one you talked about - the girls would like it too, I think!

I hear what you're saying and, as always, I'm trying to balance realistic expectations with enough motivation to move myself forward. Witht the running, it seems I need a race goal to keep me doing it... we'll see.

Six races! That would be really great if you can do it. I'm thinking I'm going to take things a little slower this year. I'm tired of where I am but I'm also tired of setting unrealistic expectations for myself and then feeling like a failure. It's just going to have to be one day at a time. I'm liking the Wii. I think that will definitely be a part of all this.

Let's make 2014 a really good one!

Having fun with fitness

My youngest daughter and I are trying to decide whether we'll commit to a 6-race schedule this year. BIG commitment for us and I haven't been running regularly since oh September.

In the meantime, I've GOT to get this body moving again! Yesterday we went tobogganing for the 3rd time over the holiday. I've decided that I LOVE tobogganing. What a riot! Today, I came home from work and put on Just Dance on the Wii for 20 minutes, then did another 40 minutes on the wii fit! Go hula hoop! I forgot what a great challenge that is!

We'll see how it goes re: the running, but in the meantime, I'm excited to be moving - that always helps keep my eating on track!

Happy New Year Sparkfriends!

Well it was a really good streak Kelly! I've never come close to that far. There's always something that wrecks it for me. This week it was the concert. Just get back at it and do it again, and know how well you've done! Hope you're having a good week!

I am going to scream.

No kidding.

I was on a perfect attendance streak.... 351 days and going for a year. SOMEHOW my login on Thursday didn't register my spin.... And I broke my streak without even knowing it. This is really silly, I know, but I feel like I've been punched in the gut.... I was 14 days away from a full year of perfect attendance!

Don't even know how it happened.
Gurrr... emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon We never know what someone else is going through, so it is always good to be kind to others, no matter how we feel. That is something I have to remind myself of when I am feeling grumpy. I usually avoid people at those times, because when I can't it is very hard.

I wanted to comment on the Huddle page. I know I had a hard time locating it; then when I did I realized that most groups don't huddle. I went to at least 5 spark teams that have never huddled. Please check this out if you have not. It is a very brief way to encourage your team.

The huddle is located on the right side of your sparkteam page and you can get up to 5 points per day for huddles. Hope everyone gives it a shot.

Hey Mar... been kind of a nasty week. Pretty happy it's Friday, but NO... don't want to think about Christmas! Sad that what should be such a lovely holiday becomes so complicated, rushed... meaningless. I really need to put my focus back on the Lord as the reason for all of it!

Hope you are well, my friend. Thanks for checking in!

I know how it is Kelly. I try to remind myself that I have no idea what else may be going on in their lives.

Here's a story (hard to believe, I know), When I was in high school, if I missed the school bus, I would have to take a city bus and it involved a transfer. Often I would just miss my other bus and have about a 45 minute wait. There was a fast food place at the transfer point that had really good milk shakes so sometimes I went there and got one while waiting for my bus.

One day, I don't remember it as a particularly bad day, but I was tired and grumpy about having to wait. I went in and ordered my milk shake. When the girl at the counter handed me the shake, she said, "I put a little extra chocolate in there for you. You look like you need it."

Okay, this was over 30 years ago and I've obviously never forgotten it. Sometimes we can be the catalyst that turns the sandpaper to silk. Little things can brighten someone's day but it does takes effort. Praying for them is also good. Goes back to the same thing. You just don't know what else they have to deal with. And if that doesn't work, you just have to be the better person and not sink to their level.

Sorry it's been hard. Don't let them drag you down. Keep smiling and you'll get through it.

From the gospel of Luke...book 6.
27"But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

It's an interesting thing, dealing with "sandpaper people" at this time of year. I work pretty hard at getting along with everyone but sometimes someone comes along who just doesn't seem to want to do the same. What else is there to do except pray for them and try very hard to be understanding? Makes me sad, really....

Had a wonderful weekend... finished putting up the Christmas decorations and got my house completely clean and tidy. There is something calming about a tidy home...
Went out to see a live Nativity performance - an annual tradition that really brings Christmas home for me.
We also went to see 'Catching Fire" and had dinner with friends - GREAT movie and a lovely time with people we really enjoy.

I will stay off the scale for a couple days... TOM and movie popcorn can't be a great combination! However, I'm continuing with my meal plan from last week having spent some time working it around into some different options. Feeling in control, positive and peaceful.
Things are good!

Well... this is day 5 and I'm feeling GREAT. Very much in control. The mysterious missing puzzle piece seems to have found it's way back into the box and things are good.

Grateful!

Looking forward to seeing where this takes me. I know I need to get my fitness routine back in order. However... 1. the busyness of my family life is insane right now AND (more importantly), 2. I KNOW that with workouts I will be more hungry.
SO... getting 20 or so minutes of low impact exercise every day and feeling ok about that.

Really glad the weekend is here. It's been a long week!

Me too, Mary... thanks! I feel like that "missing puzzle piece" just fell into my lap! What a blessing!

Today is day 3 of this plan. I have eaten about 1260 calories/day for each of the last 2 days... and I'm down 3 pounds! That quick loss just proves how far off track I was!
Anyway... not that the scale is the be-all and end-all, BUT this is my lowest weigh-in in MONTHS and I couldn't be happier. Starting to feel more in control... more content... more hopeful... more peaceful.

There is something very therapeutic about having very specific directions (ie. very specific food and portions) to guide me. I find it extremely helpful. I know that eventually I will get back to healthy eating/making healthy choices as a matter of course. But for now, I just need someone else to tell me exactly what to do... and it's working.

Feeling very grateful today....

Day 1 was great... and we are feeling strong for day 2.
Gotta go get a scale though... particularly for the girls who have no reference for how they are faring.

Trying to get into the Christmas spirit....

So grateful to be feeling better. Just a lingering cough that rears it's ugly head from time to time... but otherwise I'm feeling really good.

SO.... I came across a 5 day "jumpstart to weight loss" plan. Very basic, well rounded nutrition. Generally the same for 5 days.
My 2 oldest daughters and I are doing it this week to get a handle on choices and portions. Hoping that it will be a good start for all of us!

Sadly, my scale was not working this morning so none of us could get a starting weight. A little frustrating, but the goal is more about control than numbers so we'll deal with it!

Well... This is a little sick (pun intended)... But perhaps this flu bug is the Lord's way of helping restore my self control. Haven't really been hungry the past few days... Not tummy sickness, just sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, etc... So not really feeling like eating. A little pb on toast goes a long way!

4 pounds down in 2 days is a little crazy, huh? You'd think I was on the biggest loser or something! Lol

Just trying to bring a little humour to the situation... And definitely hoping to feel better soon.

Hi Gracilu.
I'm happy to know you found some motivation here!
Mary and I have been here a long time and supported one another through many ups and downs.
It sounds like you are in a challenging season and I pray the The Lord will supply all your needs in this time.
Take care,
