I'm going nuts not being able to video blog.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Hi everyone! I really missed talking to you guys. Unfortunately my camera decided to die on me and not work. I'm really going nuts because I really need to video blog. And I have to admit that I got so use to just doing my videos instead of having to type them out. Yes yes I know I'm being lazy, but it's so much easier to say everything I want to share with you guys and it's easier to convey my feelings. And so much has happened that I don't think I could write it all. But I'm going to try my best to sum it all up.

First of all let me tell you that I didn't go to the soccer game. Thanks to all who actually were waiting to hear about it but sadly I chickened out. There was a stronger reason for me not going but I don't really wanna share that. But yeah, I didn't go. So hopefully I can one day joined a soccer team or something and overcome my fears.

Now some good news is that the woman from my church and I have finally started our exercise group. It's our second week doing it. We did some Tae Bo at first but now we've been doing Zumba. It's been fun having eachother to keep motivated. And I'm just happy I'm finally getting some exercise in. The only thing that made me feel kind of frustrated was that I thought I would loose more weight because now I was exercising but I didn't. I couldn't understand why? I mean I lost weight just with the diet, so why wouldn't I loose more now that I had added physical activity. But oh well, I just choose not to focus on that and to continue hard.

My weight lately has been going back and forth from one day being 161 to another being 163. So for now I'm leaving my ticker at 163. But I'm feeling good.

Last Friday I learned a lesson that I already knew but I reassured it. I fasted for religious reasons, only for 24 hours. And apart from being a very spiritual experience it also proves to me that we do have full control of our bodies. That everytime I say, " Oh but I just can't help it. I had to eat that." it really is a choice. If I could control my eating for 24 hours because it was for a greater purpose, than why couldn't I control myself from eating junk or overeating for the love of my body? Now by saying this I'm not saying that from now on I'll never be weak or won't ever give in. Obviously I'm not perfect, and as human as I am I think I won't always be this strong everytime. But it's a reminder to myself that I do have control over my body. I can say no to that non healthy choice. I just thought I would share that, because it's been helping me a lot lately.

Well I think that's all for now.

On a non weight related subject, I would like to please ask everyone to keep my gramma in their prayers. She fell ill yesterday and is in the hospital. They found a couple of things wrong with her and she's in pain. So please keep her and my family in your prayers.

Thank you sparkfriends! emoticon

    Aww Martha, your grandma will be in my prayer list. Hoping the doctor finds the right meds for her. On the bright side, I am very happy that you have an exercise buddy. It makes it easier and faster.
