Falling off the wagon...HARD!!!

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

YeP!! I fell off the wagon of health big time. I could give you all the reasons and excuses but the gist of it is I hit a big immovable wall and quit. I got a little depressed and decided to stop trying. I am ashamed to admit this emoticon . It is true anyway. Thankfully I am still breathing so I can pick myself up and start again.....again. I am a few weeks from my 40th birthday and that is weighing heavy on me too. I know it is just a number and that 40 isn't old. I am just bummed that I couldn't or I didn't stick to my guns so that I could start my 40s healthy and fit. I know who is to blame....I just need to see it in front of me so that i can really take responsibility.
I don't sleep well....back pain that i am certain is related to my weight. I am stressed about "stuff" family and finances mostly. Things I can't fix but choose to worry myself sick about anyway. emoticon emoticon which contribute to the gain or lack of loss in weight. Sooo I am aware of the problem. The biggest thing is my kids....my beautiful, happy, healthy kids they deserve a mom who is more active more .....ME! They have begun to notice that I am not in the best shape. They love me and never fail to tell me so, but I do not want to be an embarrassment to them. All of these reasons are why I must get up and dust off the self pity and excuses and get back up on the wagon and get moving. So here I am again writing another get moving blog trying to inspire myself and motivate myself to change. Only I can......we will see if I will.......this time.....

Good luck to all of you guys who are just starting and great job to all of you who have stuck to it and are succeeding. emoticon emoticon

    The good news is that you can start over. emoticon It doesn't matter how many times you quit, it's about the number of times you pick yourself back up and move forward. You can do this. It's all about taking it one day at a time. That's how I look at it.

I freaked out about turning 40 also, all the way up to my birthday. The day after, I was over it. Age is just a number and you are only as old as you feel.

Please let me know if I can help you in any way. emoticon

  Just keep going! Don't dwell on past mistakes. Like you said, you're still breathing so you can pick yourself up and start again. EVERY day, we're starting again. emoticon

    A little late to seeing it, but that's a perfect sentiment! We went for a family hike on Sunday to take those (literal) steps toward health!

Day 4 of 100 day exercise challenge. Muscles protesting...

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Yes, My muscles are not happy about being forced to do something besides sit on the couch. The rest of me has tried to mutiny but I have won the battle so far. emoticon
I am happy to report that a few other people have joined in this challenge and we are going to kick butt.....(mostly our own) and get healthier. emoticon

Happy day to all, hope you are all challenging yourselves and pushing your limits. Sweat,sweat,sweat!!! One day at a time, remember the higher the mountain you climb the more beautiful the view from the top. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Days 2 and 3 of 100 day challenge.

Friday, May 09, 2014

Day 2....no sleep....sick kids......pushing on. A little sore. Not horrible though. moving has made me less stiff. sweat sweat sweat. Also I am glad to report that just a little exercise clears the mind. I defiantly needed that today. emoticon

Day 3. Everyone is feeling a lot better today. I got a good nights sleep so now everyone needs to watch out I can conquer the world. LOL I am excited to start seeing some results but I am glad to say that I FEEL lighter. No matter what the scale/tape measure says. I know that I am unlikely to see significant changes at this point so I am not discouraged. 97 days to go. I should set a goal for what I want to accomplish in this 100 days.........any suggestions??? Thanks

Happy day to all. Hope you are succeeding in your challenges and conquering your mountains with determination and a smile emoticon Sweat sweat sweat!!! One day at a time!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
