Attitude adjustment.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012



I need an attitude adjustment today. ::sigh:: I am frustrated that I haven't been able to go to the gym since Saturday, due to circumstances way beyond my control. I'm PRAYING that tonight I can finally make it, but circumstances aren't looking promising for tonight either. ::another sigh:: I can feel my stress level rising. I have relied so much on exercise to boost my mood & to relieve my stress.

The truth is, we all are going to have times of frustration like this -- it's just a part of life. But, in the meantime I need to get rid of this bad attitude. It's leaking over into everything & I don't like who I am with a bad attitude.

So today, even though it's looking like I probably won't make it to the gym again, I am DETERMINED to have a good day anyway.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Love the pic and the quote!

You can try playing upbeat music and dancing at home or watching a funny or inspirational show on tv if you have time.

Then, there's always meditation.

Hope you make it to the gym soon.

    Well, life happens sometimes. You'll get back to the gym and back to your normal routine when you're able to! Drink a little extra water and watch the snacks!

    I love going to the gym, and don't know what I'd do if I couldn't. But there are two things that help me burn some calories and feel great afterwards when I am stuck at home - gardening (some serious pruning etc) and attacking a cupboard, pulling everything out, and having a huge clean up.

Do you have some secret frustration-busting ideas that you had forgotten about? I bet you do!!

Have an awesome day, no matter what you do!

    Isn't it funny that you are stressing about NOT going to the gym (remember when Going to the gym was something you dreaded?) You're growing and changing and have an overall great attitude. Do what you can. emoticon

    Just try to relax and center. Control what you can accept what you can't. Take a long walk or do a mini-workout at home. I know you can handle this.

Live in the moment.

Monday, November 12, 2012



If you messed up yesterday -- forget about it & move on. Don't beat yourself up. Just make sure you take the lessons learned from yesterday & apply them to today. Don't worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow has enough problems of it's own. Just live for today -- live in the moment.



Matthew 6:34 (NSV): So donít worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Todayís trouble is enough for today.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Yeah, yesterday our family had a early thanksgiving dinner and my husband's niece family were very late for the dinner. I normally eaten by no later then 6:30 pm. But yesterday, we all have to wait for them. So we ended up start eating close to 9:00 pm. By that time, I was very angry and starving. I shoveled way a lot foods then I should have to my mouth. Plus a nice portion of a cheese cake. After the dinner over, I have feeling of " I messed it up on my diet" I felt defeated by my "evil twin sister inside of me." But as you said here also. I took the lesson learned and forgive myself and I started a brand new day today. I had a good cardio session this morning and went to gym and used a sauna there and sweat it out. Thanks goodness, what a relief !! ^_−☆

I love your blog, thanks for sharing !!

When the needle on the scale doesn't move.

Saturday, November 10, 2012



We are ALL going to have times when the needle on the scale doesn't move. I'm at that point right now & have been for about a month. At first I didn't get too upset about it because I know that I feel better, but then the plateau just kept going & going & going (like the Energizer Bunny).

So, I pulled out my trusty little measuring tape. WooHoo!! Even though a month had gone by & I hadn't lost any weight, I was ECSTATIC to find I had lost 1/2 an inch in my hips!! 1/2 an inch!!! Wow!! That's emoticon !!

I reminded myself that there are non-scale victories on this journey & that I shouldn't get discouraged. I know I'm doing all the right things. Here's a list of some non-scale victories:



Just look at all the things on this list!! And I know there are more. The best one that's not on this list is when your hubby tells you every couple of days how proud he is of you. Whoa! Need to grab a tissue for that one!

Lessons learned: When the scale isn't moving, keep those non-scale victories in mind & keep making those good decisions anyway. Persistence & consistency are the key!



One final thought: A lot of us have come a long way, so we have to stop looking at how far we still have to go.



You all are wonderful! Thank you so much for your encouragement every day!! emoticon emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Great blog and you are right we need to remind ourselves constantly why we are doing this, what we are accomplishing, how we feel, so many things that are not scale things. I need that right now just to make the right choices this weekend.
Thanks for the reminder.

  Thanks I trully needed this reminder. I have been focusing on that thought of how far I still have to go...and what small changes I have only made thus far. But the truth is I was feeling better and I was seeing small victories on and off the scale so why am I starting to throw the towel in. I can and will do this one way or another. Thanks.

    Thanks for the great blog. I totally agree and it is so encouraging to know that we are all in the same boat and can keep on telling each other to keep on going, that it will change and others have experienced it and know that eventually that stupid needle on the scale will change! emoticon emoticon emoticon Congrats on measuring and having lost 1/2 inch. That is always so encouraging!
