a new day

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Yesterday was a really bad day.. I ate everything in site and didn't even exercise. I was not depressed or stressed I just didn't want to do it. so I didn't. not good. But at the end of the day I was ready for the new day ready to get back on track. I guess I just needed a day off? So today will be full of movement and joy. I can do it.

evaluating my goals

Thursday, October 18, 2012

This morning as I was doing my sparkpeople stuff my son (15) ask me to help him pack for his football game that was right after school. I told him I couldn't. You see I also have to be at work soon and I have this list of things that needed to be tracked and checked and logged in. He did it himself. This was not the first time I brushed him off of my goals. Right then and there I realized I had my goals all wrong. My God and My family must come first! You know I want to get healthy and lose weight for my family but if I have pushed them all away because I need to reach my goals then I will have no family to enjoy when I reach my goals. To me this is a break through and starting today my goals are going to get back in order.

    I just came back to add exactly what you said, Celeste. Women far too often put others' needs ahead of their own. We have to take care of ourselves first or how can we take care of others?

    You need to come first...because if you don't come first and you put everyone else before yourself, especially your goals for a healthier you, it negatively effects how you are there for your children.

All things must have a balance...but you need to do what you need to in order to be a healthier you....

    You can also think of it as helping him to become self sufficient and learning how to stand on his own two feet. He is 15 and I'm sure he knows what he needs to pack for his game. There is nothing wrong with him pitching in and packing himself. emoticon

    Oh boy, it's hard to find that you've pushed off the people you love for something else. I know because I've done it, too. I've learned to let some things go and shuffle others. I've found that if I make a smidge of time for myself, like for a workout or tracking, then I'm more focused for family. You have to figure out what's right for you and it sounds like you're doing just that! Good luck..here to support if needed!

    emoticon I agree that family does come first but they can get lost in all the things we "have to do". Great job on re-evaluating. Good Luck on your weight loss too. emoticon

too much strength training

Monday, October 15, 2012

Last week I think I did too much. I am very sore and today I am not looking forward to any form of exercise. In fact I took yesterday day off completely. there goes my 10 min a day streak. I hope I learned a lesson..... moderation. but speaking of strength training I find it very hard to motivate myself to do it. My goal is 10 min 3 times a week and I find myself skipping out all the time.

    Oh gosh, I'm about to set up a strngth program for myself. I think 10 minutes per day would be good for me, too. Lifting is not my forte. But I like your idea of moderation--it's key with a lot of things! Take care and keep going! emoticon

As I sit here and read other people's comments and blogs i just have to wonder if I'm not doing enough or when will I really have to do more. Right now I am losing so I'm still good. I exercise about 30 mins a day 6 days a week. I'm not sure how I will have more time to do more. With my busy life sometimes it is hard to get 30 mins in. Always before when I started to add longer times I would quit altogether. Then I found out today that I am probably not eating enough. It feels like a very hard balance and almost overwhelming. I am trying not to dwell on it and just keep working. Like I said right now everything is going well. I am really rambling and am not even sure why. I guess I shouldn't borrow trouble till it comes my way.

    I think you're doing really great. Averaging exercise 6 days per week on top of just plain "living and doing" is wonderful! And like you said, you're still losing, that's an indicator that maybe you're right where you should be? I'm sort of guessing here--new to SP and still learning. Love your blog, though! Keep up the good work!

    I'm losing at a really slow rate but for me....I'm so glad to see it coming off.

I get up early and workout before work. I have to. I will not do it later. I know me.

I too had to look at my calorie range. I just raised the amount of calories I wanted to burn per week and then my range went up a little.

One thing I am going to have to remember to do is count my farm activities in my fitness minutes....because some of that (to my surprise) really does burn a lot of calories.

Don't compare yourself to anyone else. You are very unique and special and just keep working on you and doing what you can do.

    Don't stress yourself out about how much exercise to do. Do what you can. Anything is better than nothing and I think 30 minutes a day 6 days a week is simply emoticon .

Be sure that you are getting enough calories every day - 1200-1500 per day is ideal since that way you are getting enough vitamins, minerals, etc. Don't ever go too low, your body will think it is being starved and will hoard every single calorie it can.

Yes, it's an overwhelming journey...but emoticon
