A Lot With a Little

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless."
Thomas Alva Edison

Today I planned to go to the gym and do a half hour of weights and then a half hour on the elliptical , didn't happen. Some people would say that was a big Fail. FFFF. I did something I exercised I only did 25 minutes on the elliptical, that almost made my goal. That is a 83 or a B . That is something . This means everything to my health and happiness. I did 20 minutes with the weights another B. I am learning I am growing .I am getting healthier and happier.

I am learning that it always doesn't have to be all or nothing. Some things are very important. Like my health and happiness every little thing I do towards a better me is a win not a failure. Their are no f's in trying to be healthier and lose weight,not if your trying.
Plus this whole losing weight and stepping on the scale stuff sucks. I only lost a pound this week ,Last week I didn't lose any. The week before I sat around and ate chips and lost three pounds. What the Hey!!!!!

I'd rather think that I am redesigning me. I am trying to resculpt my body to get a new look. A sleeker , healthier model. To do this I need to eat the healthiest I can, and work out as often and be as creative as I can. I will look to my positives , ignore my dark side and my failures. I can, I will, I Try . I Become. I will get there . Are you with me.? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Hi Joanne , yes , I here you about creating a new me. Its tough sometimes . I think your on a good learning curve ! I also feel their are no failures. I just question why we need to be so hard on ourselves. I am trying to correct that within myself. Thanks for all of your support lately , really appreciate. I will conquer that position and not be self conscious!! Hugs K emoticon Woo Hoo Congrats on your weight loss ! emoticon

    Great job on seeing the big picture. Today at work is really crazy. I am finally taking my lunch an hour later than I should. However, I have about a mile walk to and from work from my house. Rather than take the bus (I don't own a car) I decided to see how fast I could get to work walking, once I am off I am going to see how fast I can get home. This is not the ideal exercise for me, but right now I will take what I can get.
    Keep going you can do it!!!

    I agree! It's not all or nothing! It's not a fail! A B is still good! The fact that you are improving your health makes it great! :)

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    I sat around and ate chips today so I hope I lost 3 pounds too! Fat chance tho. (Seriously, if you could see my stomach, you would say "fat" chance too. lol) Great job working out today. I say ALL workouts are good workouts, so you should be proud of yourself for doing it. I'm giving you an A+! emoticon

    I am with you too. I am trying to think positively and improve myself instead of beating myself up. It is hard sometimes, but Edison is right, we can always gain from our failures too. emoticon

    You did better than me today. I had every intention of walking at 5:15 this morning but just couldn't face the cold. I did not walk at lunch either.

    I DID stay in my calorie range though. I worked late and had to stop at the grocery store on the way home to get greens for my bunnies. It was 6:30 and I was SO HUNGRY. I fondled all the potato chip and Cheetos - you know, picking them up, putting them back, picking them up again and reading the calories, putting them back. I stayed strong because of everyone here on Spark and resisted and got the hell out of the store before I could cave. Drove 45 minutes to get home and raced into the kitchen to make some quick enchiladas. Glad I waited. emoticon

    Remember, emoticon stay strong!

    I so am with you. A healthier more content me is what I am looking for. But the first was so hungry, yesterday not so much, today till late afternoon I was hungry. Fine since then, had a good supper and fine since. I don't know what or why, as I am making sure I have protein, I wonder if not enough carbs hmmm that would be diff! LOL
    have a great day tomorrow!
