Hi, I am new to the club. I haven't weighed myself yet this week and will get back to you on that. I am working on setting up a better place to do my Wii activities, including moving my TV so that I have more space without others interrupting my workout.
Missed my weighing in yesterday do to a family emergency. Everyone is fine just had to put the truck in the shop to get worked on. Will have to catch the weigh in next Monday. I hope everyone is doing well. Maria
Went from 172.6 to 174.4. I am not getting frustrated yet. Because I know I kind of enjoyed the holiday, and I have been doing alot of running. I can be gaining muscle from this. So I will continue on, and hopefully I will have better results next weigh in.
Wow.... I haven't been this impressed in a long time. You know, I'd see people out walking around with ski poles and think, "Do you guys know how stupid that looks?"
Well, now I'm one converted goofball, because I had my maiden voyage with Nordic poles today. And soon as I finish this blog, I'm heading out again.
It was just too cool! I felt like I was getting a workout in places that I'd forgotten were there! I opted for the poles with the rubber feet, but I didn't get the retractable ones, and I'm gonna promise you, I'll be needing them. Why not get in a workout as often as possible?
Please spend the $20.00 and go have a very cool Nordic walk. You won't be sorry.
Type, then write a breakup letter to the 5 lbs you will have lost by this month's end.
Why the breakup letter?
It's good to make an official goodbye. It is a statement of trust, a declaration that if all else fails, it will not have been because you did not imagine it differently.
Also not bad is having a written document of your change when your motivation is low. And we all know that motivation is our biggest challenge. Why not try to stand a little taller in your own eyes than the problem, this with just a few written sentences? You needn't share them with anyone...
Let's face it: it's been a love affair (kind of). But when it's over, try to externalize it and establish distance with the weight gain. This way it's easier to reclaim (internalize) the weight-loss behaviors you no longer practice.
I've put a copy of mine on my blog, but I've also a written copy, with the signout "Goodbye."
Hello my name is Maria and I love a good challenge. So I joined this club. I will be rewarding myself with a nice day out. All by myself, so I can get a little me time. I will punish myself taking over some of my daughters chores for a week. So lets take off those pounds.
Before we get started with the changes we're about to make to shed this 5 lbs, we need to plan a motivation, a reward.
A massage, a pedicure, going out to the movies - any non-food reward you feel makes the 5 lbs worth it is more than acceptable, but it has to be a reward big enough to make it motivating.
And here's the rub:
You need a punishment.
Here's mine: there is a religious sect to which some very prominent people belong which totally gives me the heebee jeebies. I promise to give $25.00 to this religion as a punishment for not having lost this five pounds. Stark, huh?
Post your reward on your Sparkpage, and tell someone about your punishment before you start, so that they will hold you responsible. The best person to tell is someone who would LOVE for you to fail, but who has the nads for that??? (hehehe)
BTW, I'm still looking for a club tabulator willing to total up our loss for the week(s). Any takers?
