Day 11 of Stress Changes

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Well I have managed to lose about 8 pounds....Not sure how I did this but I did. The past few days have been very trying with stress. Between tranfering for school, got into a care accident no more car, and bills its just geting to be so much. Im not sure how much more i can handle with everything. I dont know what to do and all i wanna do is cry, but I know that is not the answer that can help me. I am NOT be any means religious and I am so confused about it. I just want to happy and healthy is really to much to ask.....I am getting on the happy now I am working on the healthy part......Wish me luck emoticon

    Take a moment and breathe! Life is tough right now but this too shall pass.

Remember a self compassion mantra,,,,, and be kind to yourself.... it sounds like you are having a really difficult time right now,,,, and imperfection is part of the shared human experience.... but remember to bring a sense of caring concern to your present moment experience. Above all, remember that this suffering is temporary and you will move on

Day 1 of Stress Challenge

Friday, February 08, 2013

Ok so I am here because I have stress....Fancy that right, what makes my stress any different then other peoples stress. Well it isnt and that is why I need to reduce mine greatly. This past week I was hospitalized because of stress, and I want to be healthy. I think by getting support and writing about the stresses in my life everyday I can overcome all of this. I am not by any means saying that I am stressed out everyday....Just the one that end in "Y", LOL. No really just a couple of days of the week. Sometimes more and sometimes less.

Any suggestions I will take any help, I can get
Have a great day emoticon

Ok so a week ago I wrote my first blog of 2012. My father had his first round of chemotherapy last monday. I thought everything was ok till I got the call and my father collapsed. He was in ICU for almost a week. He will remain in the hospital for another week so that he can get stronger, This past week has been rough. I'm scared and all I do is fight with my brother and his girlfriend. I feel like my brothers girlfriend is trying take my place in my fathers heart. No one sees it but me and when I tell people they tell me that I am over reacting. I just want her to know that she is not the baby girl of the family I am. I know this is childish. I am going to be 32 in May but this is a man that has taken care of me since I was 3. I did not have a real father. He is my dad he has always been there for me through everything. I am scared to death that I may lose him. But when I do lose him my whole family will fall apart. since I dont have that strong bond with him I will lose everything. With all this stress I didnt do that great with my eating or doing my challenges. However I do go back to school tomorrow so that means I will be moving and walking alot more. I will start the gym tomorrow or Wednesday, whenever I can get in cause I have to get approved to work out at the school. I have lost about 5 pounds though in 2 weeks so I just need to work harder, I know that I can do this and I will. Thank you for all of your support and advice. Please keep my family in your prayers we need all the miracles we can get.

Hi everyone!!!! Well this is my first blog of 2012 and there will be many more. I wanna start by saying how blessed I am to have a chance to live in 2012. With the support of my friends and I know that I can complete my weight lose goal of 70+ pounds this year. That is half of my overall goal.

Of course I know there are going to be struggles along the way but I will not give up. My father was diagnosed with lung cancer this past week and if he can fight that at 70 years old, I know that at 31 I can fight my weight loss battle. I pray that as I face battle I can remain strong for my family in this trying time. I am a full time college student and work part time at the college in the admissions office. My fathers dream is to see me graduate and I will in a year. I fight with him both fighting for our lives.

I am currently going to participate BLC #20 the last time I did a challenge like this I did very well in 6 weeks I lost 15 pounds, with this one I plan on losing 20 pounds. I know that I can do it. Since starting college 2 years ago I dont know how to fail at what I want.

I hope that when I reach my goal my father also reaches the goal of being in remission. I know that he is a strong man and I look up to him so much it hurts to see how fragile he is. But i know that we can get stronger together. I would like to ask everyone for there prayers for my father, he is tough but a little extra help couldnt hurt no one.

  How's your Father doing?

If you want to incorporate some fitness with the fight against Cancer, you should look into any of the local Relay for Life events that are going on. The next one I'm aware of is this coming Saturday, June 23 at Naperville North High School. I'm sure there is one closer to you, but that's the next one I know.

Best wishes to you and your family, and be strong!
