Sorry i have been MIA

Saturday, November 23, 2013

I'm sorry I haven't been around really this month. Since June I have just been maintain my weight loss haven't really gone up a lot or down a lot. So this has just been hard I have gone back to a lot of old habits I don't know why. I have not really been walking as much as I should or really reaching any of my goals that I started for myself this month I did good for a while and than just stopped.

But i'm starting my goals over instead of trying to do to much until I get out of my funk. I'm happy with walking at least an hour a day. I'm going to try to track my food for the rest of the month. that is all my goals and i'm going to try to do this for thirty days in a row.

Alright I hope everyone is doing well. Missed everyone glad to be back.

    Welcome back!

    What you experienced is normal. Our bodies are smart and get used to what we are doing. So emoticon because emoticon emoticon

    Girl, I was is an eight month funk and then switched to whole foods because of the wheel chair and then pneumonia. I started moving more throughout the day and really made a concerted effort to eat a variety of foods. I finally broke the stupid 160 barrier, which encouraged me to keep eating the way I'm eating. Now, I'm trying to fit into a red dress that I'm like five or ten pounds away from fitting into, so I'm redoing my eating plan. (I also fit into some mediums, finally, and guess what? I'm not satisfied.) I guess the point is to not give up or beat yourself up when things aren't perfect.

    Julie, slips and such things are difficult, but the hardest part is getting started. Why not commit to making a "to do" list each night or morning of all you have to do for obligations, appointment.... and a "to do" list for your lifestyle? Keep each list basic, attainable... DO-ABLE!

    Keep the list in an accessible place, and make a habit of checking off things as you do them. Writing simple activities like "walk 200 steps during every commercial while watching tv" become can actually rev things up.

    Are you drinking enough water? The electrolytes in water are helpful, too!

    Why not try something different?
    Revitalize is a wonderful word: REVITALIZE your journey!
    ...Join a new team - especially a challenge team - if the support will help.
    ...Go to the grocery store and pick up some
    ...........fruits and veggies you never or rarely have eaten... and eperiment!
    ...Change up your exercise by trying something different. Check SP for ideas!

    Above all?

    Keep It Simple.

    Don't shoot for the moon.

    In terms of activity, do SOMEthing of an activity every day.
    Walking is fantastic, but lots of things can give that same boost of will-power that walking gives. We just plain feel better when we increase activity. You know that, so I'm not giving you news. I've had some real slumps, so I sure do understand.

    We all get a little burned out, it might take some shock therapy to get you back!! Find a reason to pursue your goals. I was doing better on my SP when I had less time to pursue it. Now that I finished my study for my exam I am not as motivated. I am in the same boat. I plan to find a stimulator such as a picture, person or reason that gives me the shock therapy to get back to my amazing workout routine and not the current rushed one I am doing. I tend to pour all my energy in my cardio and then I am too tired with less time for the real important strength training.

    Glad you are okay and maintaining the status quo! Have an awesome weekend sweetie! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Love you!

    Oh, Julie, SO GLAD you're back up and running again!!! It doesn't matter how slow or how far you fell off the wagon...it just matters that you're NOT GIVING UP and have begun to put things back into perspective!!! This is the same thing that happened to me! So it's back in the saddle for both of us!!!

    Take care my friend, and know that this is for me too!!!

    Running together and loving it!!!

    I know you can do this! I'm a firm believer in small goals, the ones that are easy to accomplish. I started the month of November promising to do only 10 minutes of exercise every day. 3 weeks into the month and I'm at 700 minutes! Somehow I just kept finding little 10-minute windows of opportunity throughout every day and it all added up.

    Pick a teeny-tiny goal just for today and see where it leads you!!
