Up and moving

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I am up and moving again. No more sitting and sulking for me. The only way to lose this weight is to do something. So I am doing something. I am trying this new challenge with walking. I am hoping it gets me going. Even if I don't lose a lot of weight with it I know it will make me healthier. Yesterday i went to the Dr. and she said even tough my cholesterol was a little high she wanted to wait a little longer to see if i could bring it down on my own. So there is a challenge. The next time I go there will not even be that discussion. God has blessed me with so much and I need to do my part and get my body healthy.

    I'm glad your doctor is giving you more time before doing anything further. Now you have even more incentive to slim down. You can do it!

    One foot in front of the other and you'll get where you want to go. Okay, so that may sound cliche, but it's not meant to. Sometimes we have to realize that to get going we have TO START. emoticon Just keep your faith and don't beat yourself up for being human emoticon

    You are RIGHT! I hadn't thought of it until you said it in your blog but life and our bodies are a wonderful gift and if we don't exercise and eat right and take care of them, we are basically spitting in the giver's face. Its like giving your child a stack of PS3 games, then later finding them scattered about the floor with no covers, mixed up and scratched, treated with disregard. Only its even worse, because our bodies and life are such a BIGGER gift...

    just look at it as practice. The more we practice the better we get. Just keep at it, making sure you track all your food and not cheating yourself by not tracking. You will see where your weak spots are and will be able to conquer them. I am still struggling with the nite time grazing. Learning to conquer that monster.

I am back

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I don't know why I have to keep coming back. I wish I could stay on the track without falling off but I do and I did again. So here I am ready to rty again. This time I was only a few weeks so that is good.

I am ready and motivated to get started. I am going to try to take things slow and not expect to lose fast. I want to change things for good not to just lose and gain it all back.

My goal for Feb. Is to be more active and do ST 3 time a week. I plan to track my food and write everything down. So here is to Feb.

    You can do it! Just made a point to do something everyday and track your food every day...no matter how bad you think you did. It will help you find a balance. It did for me.

Big hug! Good to see you!

Wanted: motivation

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I need to get some motivation. In my mind I have it. The part I don't have is the follow through. I tell my son wrestling takes work you can't be good unless you work at it, then I turn around and wish I could lose weight by sitting on my butt. These next two weeks are going to be very busy for me but I would like to get some exercise in every day. I need to do something. right now I seem to be going through the motions of sparkpeople and not letting it really effect me. I am just not sure how I get my mind and body working together. I know no one can tell me and I have to figure it out. I just wish I could. I guess I had better start praying for wisdom.

    The advice I always give myself is "Do it, then I can complain about how I don't want to from a position of having already done it. " It usually works for me. Just make yourself put in 10 minutes. If you do 10 minutes everyday for 10 days, you will have a good start on making it a habit, and maybe then you will feel like doing more. And 10 minutes isn't that long. But the best way to get motivated and stay that way, is to find something you actually LIKE to do, like roller skating or swimming or Wii fit or whatever is fun to you.

    I don't know how your doing on the food part...but the exercise and getting off your butt part...I make a point to do something everyday...even if it's 15 minutes. SP has a lot of great short workouts in their video section...so does youtube (love free stuff and it amazes me how much free information is on the web...good stuff, too!).

Park the car a little further from the door. I park pretty far from the door in all well lit places...and just use caution. It gives me some extra steps for my fitbit and add to my calorie burn...a lot more than I thought it would.

tracking food...I'm not the greatest at it all the time and I get so frustrated when I track on my phone and the info doesn't carry over to my computer...because I stupidly put in the wrong date...

Spark says fast break, right....keep trudging...some days you trudge a little less then others....but it all comes out the same in the end.

Looks easier on paper

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I started this week out so well planning and getting it all on paper. I had a plan and was going to follow it to the T. I did really well Monday and Tuesday then came Wed. I had to go into work early and was busy all day then some running around and when I sat down my feet hurt and I was tired. I grabbed some cookies and cheese popcorn. By the end of the day the bag of cheese popcorn was gone and the package of cookies had only 4 left. I went to bed tired and not feeling the greatest. So now today is Thursday and I have a choice to make. How will I spend this day. I know it will be busier than I once planned but that is ok. I have a plan and the includes exercising in about 10 mins for about 20 min and strength training later in the day. Most of the junk food is gone from my house (since I ate it all yesterday).

all I can say is Here to a New Day!!!!!

    You're right--you do have a choice to make. When you sit down, do you want to reach for junk food, or do you want to munch on some celery, carrots, or low-fat yogurt? I'll be honest, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, tastes as good as the feeling of being healthy and fit. When I do overindulge, I have a commitment to myself that I will work it off, or as much of it as physically possible. Is that easy to do? No, but it's humbling to spend time doing it because I've learned how much works it takes to do so.

Put yesterday behind you and commit to yourself that you will do better.
You can do this--I believe in you.
