I Got Positoovity

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I'm feeling very positive the past few days.

I cut out weigh-ins for the time being. I have no need to weigh myself right now, I am doing fine, gaining momentum, feeling like things are getting better.

My motivation is up, I keep what I am eating in the back of my thoughts through the day. I'm a little worried about tomorrow because I'm going over a friend's house to visit. She is pregnant and bound to have lots of snacks. I guess this will be a test for will power.

Goodnight for now Sparkers

Skipping Weigh-Ins For A Bit

Monday, August 11, 2014

I've decided, due to inconsistent numbers and lack of a working scale, I am going to forgo weighing myself for a bit. I have been pretty much back on track for the past two weeks (except for a cheat weekend) but have yet to lose anything again.

I'm hoping stepping off the scale and avoiding the number will make for a better reaction next time I have a chance to weigh myself properly.

In the meantime, walk tonight, I'm within my calorie range for the day and feeling somewhat positive.

Its a New Dawn, Its a New Day, Its My Day Off!

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I LOVE my days off. I can do whatever I want. I always include a workout somewhere in the day. Today, I have a few errands to run at the craft stores, but once I'm done with that I'm going to go for a walk at the nearby park. After that, who knows, maybe I'll take a trip on the elliptical. Its anything goes.
My mom asked if I wanted to go out to dinner with her later, which always means a fatty, American restaurant like Smokey Bones or Long Horn. Lets see what happens. Might have to do a little entree research!

    I'm retired, so work (job) is not part of my day. I did walk two miles early this morning before my son delivered my infant grandson; granddaughter will arrive shortly after noon. I love being a grandma--what I was born tho do!!

Eating out can always be a challenge--research prior to leaving is not always an option, but more restaurants are beginning to post nutritional data online. Enjoy your time with your mom.

Letting Go

Monday, August 04, 2014

If there is anyone out there who consistently reads this blog, you will know that I am having issues with an ex.
Specifically, I am having trouble letting go of what happened.
I consider it a successful day if it takes me more than 10 minutes to think about it on the way home from work. It always creeps its way back into my mind.
I have to see him in September for a hearing about when he broke his foot. It is going to kill me inside to be there with him.
I don't know how I should act, if I should say anything to him. I don't know if he will even acknowledge me.
What if he doesn't, my scarred heart will shatter again. What if he does, it will be too painful to talk to someone I was so in love with.
I still cry myself to sleep sometimes, and for the most part I shed a tear over it everyday.
I just want to be able to leave it behind me, but it catches up to me all the time.

Right now, I am sad. I wish I wasn't, but I am.

Today was the first day in years that I went outside without sleeves.
Sure, it was just to work out and nobody saw me, but it was a bit of a milestone.
I decided that I have worked too hard to be uncomfortable wearing sleeves while I jogged, so I wore the damn tank top and didn't even think twice about it.
I just let my flabby arms wave in the breeze hahahah! Who cares? It was an interesting experience, but I think I'm going back to my supportive long sleeves. At least with them I don't get that uncomfortable tugging.

Anyway... goodnight Sparkers!

    I understand what a big step that was for you! Congrats! But I also understand the comfort zone thing. I have been wearing tank tops this summer to weed the garden this year and that is a first for me too!
