"Git 'r dun"!

Saturday, November 08, 2014

Spark Coach asked me to blog on my favorite saying or quote that inspires me every time. Can't say that I really have one, but the title of my blog is a humorous quote from Larry the Cable Guy (I believe) that epitomizes the way I feel sometimes - I'm exhausted or I'm stressed out or it doesn't seem like there's enough time in the day to fit everything in, but you just have to "git 'r dun".

Baby steps are good, yes?

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

Calorie count too high today (and yesterday!) - didn't even track on the weekend - but I'm moving forward, I hope.

Done more walking in the last week than I have in months - keep telling myself it's progress, but I get depressed when I think of the massive amounts of exercise I've done in the past without really blinking an eye. Now I get out of breath bending over to put my socks and shoes on so I can get out and walk (big belly forces air out of lungs when bending, y'know).
emoticon

Felt embarrassed when I went to eat with my wonderful hubby on Sunday - almost couldn't get out of the booth - wanted to sink down into the floor so nobody could see me - my hubby tells me I worry too much what other people think and he's right - but how do I turn that part of my brain off? I know he loves me just as I am and I so want that to be enough, but shame still floods over me sometimes.
emoticon

It's hard to get past the fact that I lost so much weight, then let it all creep back on and then some. Makes me feel like such a failure and makes it hard to rejoice in the baby steps back to health.
emoticon

I'm not really sure what the point of this blog is - guess I just need to say some of these things out loud, as it were. Maybe there are others who are feeling somewhat like I am and need to know that they're not alone.

    Yes baby steps are good. Remember how fast the days go by...one week flys by! can you make weekly goals? Like concentrating on just the consumption part for one week, then the exercise part for a week to not overwhelm yourself into giving up weekly, daily, etc. Does your husband help you?..do you want him to. Maybe you could ask him to just help you in the exercise part for a week. have him be in "charge" of what you do for a week. He sounds supportive and not demanding at all. Having someone else in charge of your food never works (i think), but having someone "be" your "personal coach" might be a good game to play and then reassess and talk about it at the end of the week.
I too struggle with compliance and (lately) 100% non compliance. Just horrible. Won't track my food, know i'm overeating; don't care. I'm sure there are a myriad of "reasons". I should probably blog to myself about it, just like you did because I really truly believe that yes it does help to do that. Don't give up.

    Yes. Trading bad habits for good takes time. Focus on your health, not the scale.

It was a rough morning...

Thursday, October 30, 2014

but the day is getting better. A wonderful co-worker brought in goodies for the office this morning, which included 2 fruit trays. I had yummy honeydew melon with breakfast and lunch. I also had a little pack of bite-size chocolate chips muffins, so I wasn't totally good, but such is life.

Have you ever noticed that the honeydew melon tends to hang around the longest when there's a fruit tray? Strawberries and watermelon disappear in a hurry and pineapple goes quickly also, but the humble honeydew gets left behind. That's fine by me, cause I love the stuff, especially when it's sweet and juicy like the batch today. emoticon

    I have noticed the honey dew melon is always last to go! It is my least favourite also but I will eat it. Cantelope usually hanging around at the end too and i love it. We are lucky!
