Super Bowl & Doubts

Friday, February 03, 2012

So not much new here. Still just doing what I'm supposed to. Haven't had any more weight loss but thats okay. I know it'll happen eventually. Still about 2 lbs. away from 10 lbs. total lost so I haven't been able to reward myself with a Leslie Sansone video yet. I am looking forward to that though because I am getting a little bored with what I am doing. I've shortened my exercise bike times just a little bit lately but I upped the resistance so I think thats okay too. I'll work my way back up to longer sessions. I tried to do push-ups today. I did four. LOL Hopefully I'll get to work on that too.

Super Bowl Sunday is coming up & I'm going to a party for it. I'm not much of a football person but I do love parties. I need to bring a dish to pass so I'm thinking of making this corn salad recipe my mom gave me. I'm going to swap out the regular mayo with olive oil mayo & the sour cream with greek yogurt. I think it'll still be tasty & then I'll be sure that I'll be able to eat something healthy at the party. I'm a little worried because I was always one to bring a yummy dessert and I'm not sure people will like this as much as my desserts. Oh well I guess.

The other night I asked my husband if he thought I could actually do this... lose weight. He said "yes". For some reason though I don't believe him. He's never given me reason to not believe him. I know it's just my own doubt creeping in & keeping me from believing him but I'm not sure what to do about it. I've let myself down so many times in the past that I actually don't believe myself. AARGH! I think all I can do is to prove myself wrong this time. Then if there's ever another time that I doubt myself I can look back at this & say that I actually did it. I've been doing good for 3 weeks now, I don't see why I couldn't keep this going. I don't want the past 3 weeks to be for nothing!

    You can make it happen. Sometimes you just need to remember what YOU are doing this for, and let the fear of criticism go. Don't worry about what anyone says or does. In fact, you might be helping out someone that is dealing with what you are dealing with.

    If your husband is anything like mine, he censors what he says in fear you might take something wrong. If he says he believes you can do it, though, just take it at face value. The important part, however, is that YOU believe you can do it. We all know you can.

    Watch the Greek yogurt you use in that recipe. Some of them are REALLY high in fat! Compare nutritional ingredients when you start substituting things, because I've learned using something you think sounds like it would be better, really ends up NOT being so much better.

    As for the video, maybe that's what you need to get those 2 pounds off! I know spending money is a reward in itself, but the way I see it, if you are spending it on something weight-loss related, the actual result of the purchase just might be the true reward. emoticon

    Trust yourself. Believe in yourself. Love yourself.
    I'm pulling for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Re: the video: this is just my personal opinion but I think that if you feel a new video would make exercise easy, then just get it. I don't think stuff that would make exercising easier should be something you deny yourself until you lose x number of pounds. I much prefer rewards unrelated to fitness, usually something I want to buy but don't really want to splurge on. Like a pedicure or something.

    I've always heard that if you think you can't you're right all the time. If you think you can you're likely to be right, so think you can and then make it true!

    Lynn's right. You are doing this. Just recognize your bad habits and replace them with better ones.
