What's going on?

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Today is Independence day and it's just me and the dog. (Poor grammar, but it's not like anyone is actually reading this!) Scott's fishing, Kyle's at work, and Tori is with her mom. Sitting here with a soda and chips/dip, that's just messed up!

It's funny, I say I want to lose weight, yet I don't really do much about it. Oh, I exercise but not consistently. I drink the "diet soda", doesn't seem to help much! I know what I should and shouldn't do, yet I consistenly do what I shouldn't!!!!

I'm fat and it's all my fault. I know what needs to be done, yet I don't do it. I'm in charge of groceries yet I still buy the "trigger" foods that I don't/can't say no to. I even role play with the "you shouldn't eat that" and argue against the, "no one got fat from eating a smoothie".

Someday, I will finally get to the place where I want to be healthy and lose weight more than I want the nutty bar or chips/dip. Someday, which is never today!

    We've all pretty much been where you are but half the battle is recognizing what the problem is. The point will come when you know its "now" its that moment that the chips, soda,candy..whatever your things is, is no longer more important than your health and that will be when you do it. You already took a big step by coming on here. Just believe in yourself that when the time is right you'll rock..

    Knowing your problem is half the battle. I hear ya though. I'm fat and it's my fault. The healthier choices are the harder ones to make. I'm in charge of the groceries in my house too. And I buy stuff and then shove it in the back of the fridge and forget about it. So now, instead of saving money and buying the things for salads and fruit to cut up and take to work, I buy the stuff that is already made, and take it to work. Takes some of the excuses out of the picture. And I can't just say I'm lazy and didn't feel like throwing a salad together... because TA-DA it's already done for me. So I spend about $10 at the grocery store every 2 days and load up on a salad and cut up fruit that will last me the 2 days, and then I go back and get some more for the next 2 days. Keeps me in line. And I've learned to say "no" when the girls at work ask me to go to lunch with them. And believe me, it takes ALL my willpower to say no, but I know it's for the best.

    I don't want to be a blob in my wedding dress in October... but I'm still lazy. It's hard for me to work out. I find tons of reasons not too. I don't work out when my fiance is home, because I don't want him to watch me, because I'm self conscious about it. I don't like to get up any earlier than I have to, so I don't do it first thing in the morning. I can't do it at night because I have the kids... See, I am QUEEN of excuses!

    That's one of the reasons I started to walk while I'm on lunch at work. I just couldn't find an excuse not to. Plus it helps say NO to the girls on lunch. Because I won't have time to grab food and walk and eat.


    Keep your chin up. Put your foot down, and just do what you gotta do.

    I just want to encourage you. First to say, that someone is actually reading your blog! I have been where you are. I was always sabotaging my own journey. One thing that helped me was to find a goal a little down the road that i could work towards. Mine is a trip i will be making in September and I don't want my friends and family to see me like this. Can you find something in a month or two down the road that can motivate you? It's not easy but I believe in you...you can overcome this pattern and become the person you want to be!!
