new beginnings

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

so i sat down with my hubby tonight and basically said things need to change. i always am motivated to change but never follow through or talk about doing it and it never happens. I feel like the time is now. I'm finishing up my pre-requirements for the nursing program. This fall I will officially be into a nursing program and its time to do something now. I don't want to be a fat nurse. Marriage is terrible right now. I don't feel attractive which of course means no intimacy. I'm hoping this is just due to my insecurities but I'm not sure anymore. Most of my friends dont think I can even lose the weight since I never follow through. I feel so frustrated and discouraged right now. It can only get better from here right?? Friday I join a gym and it will be time to get down to business. emoticon

    Of course you can do it, you just need to be diligent.

    Can We Do It? Ability is what we're capable of doing. Motivation determines what we do. Attitude determines how well we do it. YES, We CAN Do It!

    Been there and know exactly what you mean. I started and stopped and procrastinated so many times that my family just gave up on me losing weight. Now I finally found my spark and I'm doing it and they are in the front row cheering me on.

    You CAN do it. Prove it to yourself first. Your friends will see it too.

    Congrats on joining the gym. That's a great first step !

    If I may offer suggestions:

    Be kind to yourself. Don't talk down to yourself. I have found that Positive Reinforcement achieves so much more than mental beatdowns.

    Make one small change at a time.
    Find a gym routine that works with your schedule.
    Start adding in healthy things to your meals.
    Slowly phase out the not so healthy things.
    Blog often :)
    Reach out to the other Sparkers often. We all need each other.

    Chin up, you can do this !

    Prove them wrong, one step at a time. Track everything you do, nutrition and fitness and drink at least 8 glasses of water to start. As you make these a habit you can add more things later. Baby steps is the way to go. Good luck.
