Sruggles

Friday, June 28, 2013

Yesterday sucked! I overate and I smoked a ton all the while feeling like crap and being so tired I couldn't enjoy anything, even time with an old friend. I know my mood is directly tied to my eating and that's what upsets me, the knowing what to do but not having the willpower to do it.

    Don't try to change everything at once. Do baby steps. Cut out one soda a day. Drink one more glass of water than you are used to. Make an open faced sandwich for lunch. Park further away and walk a bit to get where you're going. Take one flight of stairs at least once a day.

Little things add up, and pretty soon you'll be chugging right along.

Blob Blues?

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I feel very down today. I've felt this way since last night and I can't shake it. I don't know if its my attitude, my fatigue, or just my general unhealth but I can't shake this crappy feeling. I feel alone and lonely with and without people around. I want to crawl under a blanket and not come out for a month. It could be my dread of the impending exchange of my boys with my ex-husband, which invariably turns into chain smoking and never-ending eating or binge drinking. I don't want to go there but its like my mind just leaves my body during the time my boys are gone. Man, I hope this time is different. I hope I have learned from past years and started down the right path early or it's going to a long, hot summer. :(

    Don't give into old habits. Take the opportunity while your boys are gone to focus on "you". I'm willing to bet that you don't have as much "you" time as you deserve. None of us Moms' usually do.

Take the time to pamper yourself. Take a hot bubble bath, or a nice relaxing shower. Start a good book to get lost in. Get together with a friend (s) and have a nice evening. You could always use this time to focus on your weight loss.

You could find the time to take care of you... If you are anything like me, I know you love your kids but we have to learn to take advantage of this time and focus on something equally as important... US!! Don't forget we need to be healthy for our kids, they need us around for a long time to come.

Well wishes and positive thoughts coming your way. emoticon

Here we go again!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Okay, today is the day! I have decided it's time to get my s**t together and get my weight under control. I ended up in the hospital with heat exhaustion 2 weeks ago and wasn't even out in the sun that long. I'm 34 years old and I felt like I was having a heart attack! Really?!!! I've let myself fall so far away from where I was when I was in high school, it's time to remember what it was like to be healthy and happy. I've decided I can't do it for anyone but myself, not my kids, not my parents, not my friends, not the new man I hope to find some day, ONLY ME! So here we go! Wish me luck and please give me encouragement along the way as I know only people on here can do.

    Good decision!!

The only sure motivation is when you are doing something for yourself. The fact that it is good for others in your life is an extra benefit.

Just remember that baby steps work the best over the long haul.

A Renewed Faith Means a New Start

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

It's been a long Spring and Summer and I've made very little progress on my weight loss goals. My head and my heart tell me that losing weight is what I should do, but my willpower fails me over and over. However, in the last month I've found a renewed faith in the wonders that the Lord can do. I have felt first hand his encouragement and strength and call to follow his will. My faith has been strengthened and I feel at peace with my choices. I think my weight is another one of the tests He has thrown in my path and I truely believe that He never gives you more than you can handle. So, starting today, I am on the road to a new me and only because the better I can be the better I can serve Him!

I'm BACK

Monday, January 24, 2011

Well, I've finally worked my way back here. I have totally fallen off the wagon since just after Thanksgiving. I guess I just wasn't ready. I feel like a failure and that I gave up on myself. The good new, however, is that I'm back! I'm ready to start again and I need will power to do it. I can't just use the scale to motivate me. I'd like to know what motivates others because, damn it, what I'm using (or actually not using) isn't working for me. I have to find that reason to bust my ass and keep working when things get hard. I'd say my kids but my kids will love me no matter what. I'd say my health but obviously that hasn't been a concern for me. So what? What is my motivation, other than want to feel good and wear some of the too-small clothes hanging in my closet. Help me out!

    I DO NOT use my scale to motivate me at all..I think I would cry if that were the only thing I had going for me! I LOVE my measuring tape! I measure every 2 weeks and seem to be continuosly shocked!

Also, I do Insanity videos (when I m not sick) and knowing/feeling that I can push myself further and further just rocks to me.

Ofcourse we all want to be here for our kids and family and yadda yadda yadda, but for once, I want to be the HOT mom on the field trip. The one that wore something a bit slutty and got away with it because im fit. I know those are seriously superficial reasons to want to lose weight but it keeps me motivated to push on, plus, I am a super competitive person by nature!

You can do this. Find something, however small or superficial you ma think it is, and push for it! Own it and let it be YOUR victory!

    You could motivate yourself for wanting to be around for you kids, for their weddings, for their graduations....for their kids...you could be a granddad you know...in time...

Move it and lose it, there is such a lot of things you can be here for, you could put your wife on the list, she may love you cuddly but then even more if you are slimmer...

Oh and just think of all those too-small clothes you have, they would love you to put them on again... emoticon emoticon
