2.10 min. of exercise. I did a 10 min walk and weeded my flowers most of the day. I now have some sore muscles
3.15 min. of quiet time 30 mins
4 Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning something If cleaning up my flowers count i went way over.
5. measure my food. Didn't measure Probably why I went over

Not a super bad day I am getting there

I just feel like I fall off the wagon so often. I know that I am not as bad as I was because each time I am trying to get back on faster. As I sit here trying to pull myself up I am evaluating why I fall. I think I have come up with some ideas.

1. This is the main one I think. My quiet time doesn't happen. My focus is on issues of the day and not on Him. The time I normally spend in God's word it taking up by other non important things Because we all know He is the most important thing there is and all else pales in His light.

2. I try to fit to much into my day and get tired. When I am tired I have no motivation or will power. therefore any food in sight I eat.

3. I lack planning. When I don't have a plan things fall apart.

so today as I look at my tracking and realize that I have reached my fat and half of my calories and it is only 8:00 in the morning I am going to take some time to plan and read my Bible. I will not give up my health and life depends on it.

Yesterday I went shopping with my daughter for my dress for her wedding. In my mind I had the perfect dress. Well we sere walking in a store and there it was. I tried it on and it fit. My daughter said it was perfect, but in the mirror all I saw was this fat ugly person. I came home and ate chips and dip.

Today is a new day and I will get back at it and I can look great in that dress.

So today my goals are:

1. track everything
2.10 min. of exercise.
3.15 min. of quiet time
4 Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning something
5. measure my food.

    You have a good plan in place - keep it in sight and check off each one as you accomplish it. Then give yourself a big pat on the back - you deserve it! Have a good day and congrats for finding that beautiful dress. Not always an easy task. :) emoticon

    *sigh* Its so hard to stay on track. I've been so off-base this past 2 weeks and having real trouble getting back on. I think my biggest problem is that when my late-start classes began they changed my schedule and it messed up my workouts, and since then I haven't done well in that department, and everything else kind of hinges on my exercising. If I would get up early and knock it out, I could do it, but I am NOT a morning person and its so hard to make myself get up early. Even when I do get up early I don't want to go exercise..Hopefully we'll both get it together soon before any more time passes.

    I have found planning my meals before I eat them keeps me a bit more on track and mindful of what I will eat rather than what is just around to eat. Your goals for today are great.....keep pushing forward on your journey. I'm sure the perfect dress will look great on you.....don't be so hard on yourself. This is really one of those old habits we need to get beyond. I know I have to work on this one too. emoticon

    Yay ! You found the perfect dress for the wedding !!! I bet you look beautiful ! We are always our worst critics ! It's great that you figured out what was stopping you from staying on track with your eating & exercise. That is the biggest battle... to know why ! Once you know that , you will be able to zoom in on those problem areas & you will succeed !!! Do what you need to do ...for you !!! YOU ARE WORTH IT ! You can do it ! I believe in you ! Here's to a lovely day ! You can stay on track ! emoticon

crazy week

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I thought it was going to be an easy week but on Sunday afternoon they took my dad to the hosp with a kidney stone and a rupture the tube going to the bladder. He is in ICU and waiting surgery. So much for exercising and a calm week.

    Sorry to hear this news about your dad. Will say an extra prayer for him and a quick recovery. I know this is a stressful time so just do the best you can with your plan. I know when my Mom was in the hospital I would take a 10 min walk every hour or so...helped me stress level. Take care. emoticon emoticon

A New week

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I feel like I have lost a few weeks here. I have been so busy I haven't had much time for anything including "me" time. I think things are starting to slow down so that is good. I had a great day yesterday spending much time outside with family and neighbors. It is so nice to have the better weather. I feel refreshed and ready to start this new week. I am motivated to reach my goals again. The sad part of the whole thing I have to start over because these last 2 weeks I gained back what I lost and lost all that I worked so hard for.

My Goals:
1. track everything
2.30 min. of exercise.
3.15 min. of quiet time
4 Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning something
5. measure my food.

So today is week 1 day 1. Here we go.
My goal is to lose 15 pounds by July 7. (10 weeks)

    I'm not sure we really have to start over, I think we just have to stop missing days. I mean, this is level 1, they are just a few rats to kill. I think getting 4 good weeks out of the six will be OK.

    I think we're on the same path. I was just thinking that last week went by and I didn't take any time for me. So this is the perfect time to set some mini goals for this week.

Thank you for your inspiring thoughts. I may steal a few of your goals.

Have a great week!

week 3 day 4

Thursday, April 18, 2013

My Goals:
1. track everything I tracked everything went over in fat
2.30 min. of exercise. I didn't exercise today. Body is sore from raking and cleaning out my flower beds. ( my spring weeding muscles haven't been used in a while)
3.15 min. of quiet time 15 min
4 NEW CLEANING GOAL clean my closet didn't clean anything to day
5. measure my food. Measured

I am so tried of working an earlier shift this week and working in my flowers that I just can't find the energy to exercise today. I am also tired so I have eaten more. Do not have the will power when I am tired.

I hope tomorrow will be better.

    Some days are like that. Just plan ahead and do your best to make tomorrow better. As long as your overall trend is good, all is well. Anyway, you have nearly made it through week 3, it will be all an easy walk downhill after this week! =)
