Don't blink. Whatever you do, don't blink.

Allons-y!

Clearly, I'm a Dr. Who fan; however, I think the words at the top of my page are a fitting tribute to my battle with food. Not weight. Food. Weight doesn't make me fat, food does. Thus, the Weeping Angels are a metaphor for food in my life (and really, for those in the Whoverse, is there anything truly scarier?). I have to stay vigilant and not blink or I'm a goner.

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm ...

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm just full of metaphors.) I never struggled with weight growing up. In fact, I was downright scrawny. It wasn't until my late 20's that I started having problems. Since then, I've been within 15 pounds of goal (numerous times, *sigh*), and start getting complacent. I'm sure in psychobabble this would be called "self-sabotage."

With all of this knowledge at my fingertips and years of analyzing my eating habits, triggers, etc., you'd think I'd have this thing down pat. Alas, not so much. So, here I am making my way in this world today, taking everything I've got (any Cheers fans out there?).

I need to refocus on me. Actually, I need to find a new motivation--clearly what worked a year and a half ago, isn't working now.

My Goals:
I'd love to get healthy without relying on willpower alone. It's so exhausting to stay focused (no blinking!). If someone knows the answer, please share. lol

I want...
...to improve my 5K pace.

...to workout AT LEAST 30 minutes 4 times a week. Obviously, more is great, but I want my minimum to be attainable.

...my inner thighs to be enemies and never touch again.

...my belly button to be shallow and not the abyss.

...my skin and hair to glow with health.





Other Information:
I'm a total geek and love Dr. Who, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Fringe, Highlander (TV Series), and lots more.

I love to read a variety of genres--even getting into some non-fiction.

The groin sproing is NOT good! I appear to have pulled the adductor muscle at the inside of the left thigh. I walked 2 miles yesterday at a good clip with my bag slung over my shoulder, and it does feel better, but I don't think I can run on it yet. SO frustrating!!!!!

How you doing?

Focusing on healthy habits before counting sounds like a great way to start. It makes me wonder if maybe I should do that because counting doesn't seem to be doing anything for me! Sounds like it's working good for you, snowballing into healthy decisions is the best kind of snowballing!

No plans to move to GA anymore. After this long cold snowy winter it is tempting to look there again but we've decided it's best to stay closer to our families for the next few years.

I don't mind having you vent! LOL! No, my mom's death was not necessarily expected. She had Multiple Sclerosis, which made her prone to diseases since her immune system was weak. She got influenza, that turned into an antibiotic resistant pneumonia (MRSA) and went downhill slowly over several months. It was agonizing for her because she fought really hard but eventually became too much for her and she went to hospice. :(

Yes, my eating was an issue. Although, what made it worse was that I had knee surgery on a torn meniscus and just as I was getting back to exercise, my opposite hip started acting up so badly that I went from working out an hour a day 6 days a week to nothing quickly. That lasted until about November (from MAY!) and I gained 30 pounds. I am now down 18 of those and have a bit to go. But I'm back on track.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad and will send prayers that your mom makes a quick recovery. HUGS!
