the weekend

Monday, May 06, 2013

Why do we have to have a weekend? I do so bad on the weekends and then it takes me a few days to get back on track and here comes the weekend again.

My goals:

1. track everything I didn't track anything and I am sure I was out of my ranges
2.10 min. of exercise. I did get 10 minutes in each day
3.15 min.nope didn't happen slept in
4 Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning something nope didn't do that
5. measure my food.nope

Like I said everything falls apart on the weekend.

In my Sunday School class we are studying Daniel and it said the daniel purposed in his heart not to defile God. Well it got me thinking What do I purpose in my heart. So I think I need to purpose in my heart not to defile God's temple (my body). Now that I want to purpose that I am wondering how I go about doing that? In my mind I want to do it but I come up with so many excuses to defile His temple. Maybe I have to think more of it as His temple and not my body. This is going to be hard but I really feel this is what I need to do.

    I overate today. I think it was comfort eating. When I realized what I was doing I felt bad because I was defiling the temple of God. It made me sad to think that I would do it anyway. I must think of God more than myself. I want to be a vessel for His good works in the world. I can't do it if I am making myself ill by overeating. It just doesn't make sense to do it. But, if everything made sense the world would be a perfect world. It will be after the second coming but I need to push myself to overcome the urge to overeat now. I really wanted a treat today and then I ate too much bread.

Daniel did not defile his body. He was true to the Lord. He was a wise man. I am going to read more tonight. I got too tired last night and had to rest today because I was exhausted from the days before. I feel better now even though it is late here. It is time to read the bible. I am going to find out more about Daniel. He is motivating to me. I also want to read chapter four of Philippians. That is such an awesome chapter in the bible. I really sometimes just need to hear what it has to say. Praise God.

I pray your goals would be realized. Thank you for commenting on my blog. You said you had blogged about Daniel and I had to get right over here! LOL.

Love to you and a good night!
Yours truly, Karen

    Just a few ideas.... life gets busy, so maybe just try to do little things. Like if 10 minutes of exercise is all you can work in.. just state that . 10 minutes, is better than nothing . Don't worry about hitting all your goals right now. Tell yourself that today,I'm going to eat a healthy breakfast & workout 10 minutes. Just little goals, so you don't feel overwhelmed or defeated when you didn't do everything on your list. At the end of the day write down the positive things you did . Maybe it's just drinking your water, or you were able to spend some alone time. Every little good choice should be celebrated & should make you feel good ! Every good choice, no matter how small, will get you to your goal. Weekends are tough ones ! Another sparkfriend, was commenting on how difficult weekends are for her as well & what she did, is working is she starts her week on the weekends, like making it the same as a weekday . To try to keep it as normal as a routined day . She said it's working for her, it helps change her mindset. Maybe that will help you . Just a thought. Don't beat yourself up for the things you didn't do....only focus on the good things. You're doing well & you should celebrate that. Here,I will help you celebrate .... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon for all of the great little things that happened to you today !!!!!

    You say you did get in your 10 min. of exercise, so that is a start in the right direction. Maybe if you purpose to do that and just one other of your goals as well....and then when that becomes a habit to you, add another one.

I do believe we are the temple of the Lord, sometimes it's hard to keep that in mind.
Best Wishes! emoticon

    I'm so glad you got to spend the day with your daughter, it sounds lovely. I hope (like Thin133) that all goes well with Dad's homecoming. I'm glad you are trying to take care of yourself, too.

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
