looking for help from my sp family

hey y'all

been a while. my muse has been quiet. and sorry to disappoint but this won't be one of my quirky funny blogs (still hate that name).

i'm stalled out here. i've been at or around 205 for a month. i just haven't felt it. been doing the wrong things. sleeping to little, not exactly eating to much, just the wrong things, not exercising (though i have started running lately). i'm spending too much time on other things and not enough on myself (but that's life)

so i got on pintrest the other day looking for motivational quotes. because if you follow me or are part of my family you know i'm big on quotes and encouragement. you gotta have someone in your corner urging you on. got to. can't do what you need to get done without a little push every now and then. so you know me. i encourage, i praise, i congratulate, i try to motivate. i do what i can when i can for whoever's willing to take it. i give it freely. but i don't for myself. i don't feel comfortable receiving any positive so i just turn it around and send it back (correct pampa, i think so)

so i'm here now to ask for a little bit of help from my friends. i'm gonna try something really stupid. like i said i was on pintrest and i found 2 30 day challenges. 1 for abs, 1 for arms. (i put them on my photo page) starting monday i'm gonna try and do them along with my run, family time, work, sp time, and lack of sleep. (probably gonna have to cut a half hour of sleep time to do this-hello 5 hour energy). my daughter is on board and is gonna be my counter. i'll post what i do everyday for accountability. if i don't i need someone to let me know about it. keep me honest. i'm about 20 lbs away and the ends in sight. i just gotta get there.

so, renee, pampa, shelly, joanne, katie, liz, judy, dave, melissa, paulette, ashely, you guys are my sp/fitbit people. you have double the chances of keeping me honest. i need the help.


gonna get looped later tonight. Maybe i'll post some stupidly funny stuff then

    Okay, I think challenges are great and I am all for them. Just be careful not to overdo. I know you want to reach that goal but don't hurt yourself in the process and set yourself back more. The lack of sleep is the most concerning I think. Maybe if you got more sleep and gave your body a chance to recover, the scale would move a little. Believe me, I know how frustrating it can be to be so close and not quite be able to get there. If you really think these challenges will help you in your quest, then I will support you and encourage you. I admire how supportive you are of others and you inspire me to work harder to reach my goals.

    It's great to try something different when you stall, so I think you are right on track. Sleep is important too. Are you drinking plenty of water? You can do it!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That's right. I tried to help but I thought everything was fine. I even waited for a little while longer in case you changed your mind. Ok, so I'm here and let's get started.

    First, the calendar with abs and arms exercises that you showed me. I can tell you really want to do this challenge. Don't try to figure out why you want to do it or if you should do it. Just do it. You have nothing to lose. If it gets too much and gets in the way from your other priorities, your SP family's right here for you.

    Second, the weight scale. By not knowing your food intake and exercises, it's really hard to tell why your weight is stuck in one place. Since tomorrow is a new week, start fresh. Less calorie in; more calorie out. (hint..are you counting all your calorie intake including the smallest snacks you think won't matter?)

    Third, help me help you. I'm not saying you're not getting enough sleep. I'm only saying please get more rest. Stress becomes an important factor if not getting proper rest. We'll talk about this in another time.

    So, that's all I got for now. When do we start with the calendar?
