Do Over

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Last night I got very scared because I woke up feeling sick to my stomach and because I was half asleep, waking from a weird dream, I thought I was having a heart attack or something. It ended up being just an anxiety attack, but still very scary.

What was worse is that I thought it was a heart attack. Just the fact that this is plausible is scary. I am a 37 year old woman. Thinking that I am having a heart attack, worrying about leaving my children and gandchild, that is scary.

I have been doing this for far too long, I always have an excuse, another holiday, birthday or event, I'll start tomorrow, I'm under too much stress, I can't afford it. Plus many, many more...I am sure you know what I mean.

So I am going to do what I know I need to do. I am logging my food, and fitness. I am reaching out to others for both support and to support them. I am going to keep motivating myself, every day, just like a shower. I am giving myself a Do Over. I will reach my goal of 145lbs by the time I turn 40 in a tiny bit over two years.

I have a plan and I am following it starting today.
my goals are:
1) Log all food eaten, if it passes my lips It gets logged.
2) walk 10 minutes a day, adding 5 min each week and working up to 60 min 5 times a week, but maintaining at least 10 minutes each day.
3) Do a 10 minute strength training workout each day
4) connect with/ post on/ or support 3 people a day on spark people or elsewhere.
5) Re-motivate everyday.

I know what it takes, now I just need to DO It!

Blessings and Happy Thanks Giving.

    Logging food is SO important and SO much my Achilles heel as well.

    Let's rev it up and SPARK our way through the holiday season!! :-)
