I am proud of myself!

Saturday, September 13, 2014

It's been a long time since I wrote something and it's been a difficult year. But I have been working on my attitude because as pilots say "Your attitude controls your altitude!". TIme to get off the ground.

My family has a vacation planned in a few weeks and I needed to buy some clothes. In the past, I would decide when I thought I would lose enough weight and then scramble around trying to buy stuff. Guess what?! THAT'S NO FUN! It put a lot of pressure on me to lose weight. It put pressure on me to find clothes which fit in time to go where the temperatures are different from my home. In general, it just put a damper on the whole planning thing.

So today I ordered clothes I know I can wear TODAY!!!! If I lose weight in the next 6 weeks or so, that's just fine. Maybe the clothes will fit better. Maybe they will be a bit big. But either way, I can relax and know that I have clothes to enjoy.

This is a small thing overall but a big change in my thought process. I hope it will translate into a happier me which will go a long way toward a HEALTHIER me too!

Hope this helps someone else enjoy something in their own life.

    What a great attitude! I know you're enjoying those clothes simply because YOU like them and you weren't pressured! emoticon emoticon

    Good for you. I fall into the same trap. At least the pressure is off and you've had the time to buy clothes that you like. :)

BLC 23 Goals

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Okay I put it off long enough trying to come up with "perfect" goals. To quote a song by Peter, Paul and Mary "when will I ever learn?". So here are my imperfect but WRITTEN DOWN goals!

1. Lose 20 pounds during BLC23.

2. Exercise minimum of 5 days per week during BLC23.

3. Track food using MyFItnessPal DAILY during BLC23.

That's it for now. Something is better than nothing and whether I think those are perfect goals or not they are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Reasonable and Tangible. Of course, those may not be the right words for "SMART" goals either but they fit!

So now I have goals - it's a step in the right direction!

    You are so right, imperfect written down goals are better than perfect unwritten goals. It's so helpful to be able to see what you are working towards rather than have a vague idea in your head!

    Your goals are great! If you follow 2&3, #1 will take care of itself!!

    Your goals look very do-able! And I'm hoping to match you with the weight loss.

I finished!

Saturday, August 31, 2013

It was very hot for this area today and I don't do well in the heat. However, I finished the 5K and got my medal. I did it in 51:28 which is not fast at all. However, I didn't get overheated and I did get to see a bunch of friends from the training group I used to exercise with. That was wonderful.

So that means I have done this specific race all three years it has been in existence. Woo hoo!

Moving forward (and now being pulled back)

Friday, August 30, 2013

Life is trying very hard to intervene in my attempt at a positive attitude. I am trying to cling to the knowledge that I must make changes despite the adversities. So very hard these days. Truly it is.
