1/2 pound and I feel GREAT!!!!!

Monday, July 08, 2013

Ok, I have struggled for about 5 minutes whether or not to post this. And I decided I am posting.
After trying and trying to get below 250 and failing and failing. I have finally gotten to 249.5. As silly as it sounds I am so darn happy.

I recently started doing crunches, reverse crunches and several other exercises that I add to. I am up to 151 of each and have been successful for the last 3 days in completing these the first thing in the morning.

Feeling great and am so darn happy that I am seeing a difference in the lbs. even that small. :)

Crazy

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

It is so crazy to me that I feel wonderful when I get up and exercise and I am more productive when I exercise. I feel excited and proud when I track my progress. I feel happy and stand taller when I know I reached the goals I set.

There always seems to be that "thing" that makes me stop exercising so much, finding reasons I can't track my food, not enough time, too tired, doesn't matter cause I am at a stand still.

Yet I know, if I were giving it everything each day, I would see progress. Why do I do that to myself? Well, today it isn't going to happen. I exercised, tracked and am getting things done that I need to. I feel Wonderful, Happy, Excited....because I know...I am going to do this!!!! My partner said "We can do this!!!! " She is so right!!!! and We Will Do this.

So today!!!! I WIN!!!!! Tomorrow....Watch out!!!! Because this is POSSIBLE!!!! Together we are a VERY POWERFUL FORCE!!!!! Thank you Sharon :)

    Giving yourself, or from a friend, a pep talk every day works wonders! Hang in there!

Still the same and my weight is not lowering. Wish I could say I am doing everything right, but I haven't been exercising as long and I haven't been tracking my food intake for a few days. Watching the videos of others success helps me want to keep going, so I won't be quitting.

Why am I so afraid of actually losing it all. The thing I want most is also the most comfortable to me, yet also the thing that causes me sadness, loneliness and so many tears. Can I stop this cycle of making myself fail? Some days I have so much motivation and some days it is like fighting myself and giving up.

I am going to exercise and make myself do this. Then I am tracking and planning my meals and drinking my water. Today won't be the day that I give up.

  I just read this....... I was about to write you a email, but will comment here. All I can say is I had a lousy weekend, had fun , but seem to make many bad food choices. All we can do is make today better. Yes keep track of your food, I think that is the major thing....... Talk to you soon.

Trying to balance it all

Friday, June 07, 2013

Feeling like a failure because I am trying to balance everything and feeling like I am not doing the best job. Incorporating everything a little at a time, I just feel I should have been able to put everything in by now. Am I expecting too much from myself? Or am I trying to get myself to believe I am working hard enough and I really am not?

How do I balance it all?? Not quite sure, but what I do know is .... I am not giving up!!!! I am worth this. I have a Wonderful Partner.

I can do this. I can and will do this. Excuses are not coming in to decide for me that I can give up!!!!! Excuses will remind me I NEED TO WORK HARDER!!!!!

So......I am going to exercise now and then I am going to do my regular exercise. I need to spice it up....so video exercises....here I come!!!!!!

    Hugs to you! I fully believe that it is so much better to take things slowly than to jump in with both barrels blazing - and then you get burned out! One small step at a time and you will find great success as you build on each small step. Best wishes to you!

    I'm also going slow, but I'm seeing results! It's okay! As long as you keep moving, eat enough (healthy choices), you will get there! Relax and enjoy learning what works for you and your body, don't worry about anything else! Hugs!
