Tough going

Monday, August 25, 2014

I want to reach out today for some support. I have been in a bad frame of mind for about a week now. I thought I'd snap out of it, but this weekend was a total blow out. No exercise (I'm using the excuse it was too hot). I was conscientious of my food choices or how much I had. I also wasn't very vigilant on my water consumption. There, I confessed my sins and now I need to improve. I know I can count on my Spark Friends to help me get going again, but I also have to forgive myself for my wrong doings AND FIGURE OUT WHY! I haven't lost 40+ lbs just to go back to the start.

Any ideas how to get my head out of the gray clouds would be helpful. emoticon

    There is Spark Guy's team ........Spark Guy's Ten minutes Fitness club (forget the actual name) . .. Even commiting to 10 min a day can get you out of a slump; before you know it is more than you committed to ........Being active in a team is really helpful. ... Drinking that water is super important too ......... I keep a thermos w/ me all the time ......... It helps. emoticon

    I have days where it seems like it takes all I've got and more to get up and get exercising! Today is going to be one of them, I can tell already! I start early and sound like a Nike commercial on repeat! JUST DO IT!! This is what I say for a couple of hours on my tough days. Then I turn to bargaining. I say do just 5 minutes and then you can stop. Well once I get myself into my workout clothes and do 5 minutes, I really don't want to waste the fact that I got into the workout clothes so I usually do a whole workout! I hope that helps you. I would feel like a complete idiot if anyone but my pets heard me going on and on like this!

    Gosh, I think there must have been a special on lack of motivation. I am seeing a lot of it in various blogs. I really think a lot of it is because of the excessive heat. I know I have been struggling also. But you know what, this will pass. We are a strong group of people here. We will band together, give support and motivation. We will succeed. We can do this. We are all special and deserve happiness and to be healthy. Don't dwell on what we did or didn't do yesterday. Lets get it done today. I am right here with you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    To be honest, I have days like that. All you can do is to encourage yourself to move forward. Forget the past and work on today. Try giving yourself a money jar and each time you complete an exercise, put a dollar in it so when you lose all your weight, you have got the money to get you a new outfit!!

Must have been my lucky leopard underwear!

Monday, August 11, 2014

Today was weigh in day for my 6 month bet to lose 10% of my weight! I did it with .8 lbs to spare! I was very happy I made it. It was a hard last month. When I got to work today, I was also told I won 4 hrs of vacation for contributing to the back to school supplies. So I am attributing my success and winning to my lucky leopard underwear! LOL My day is going well and hope your's brightens just seeing the words "lucky leopard underwear"! Now . . . to continue with my weight loss to meet my goal! emoticon

Others don't have to, but I do

Friday, August 01, 2014

I had to remind myself today that swimming on my lunch hours is something "I" need to succeed. Sometimes I get caught up seeing others going out for lunch and taking the day off. I know I can do those things too, but right now, to succeed, I need to do what "I" need. My only time today for exercise was lunch time, so I went and feel better for the choice. As I stand at the copier and have to tighten my belt and pull my pants up a little bit, I realize my choices have gotten me to this wonderful weight that I am today. So my point is, Others don't have to do what I do, but I do! Have a great day everyone! emoticon

    Fantastic. I don't know of anyone that after working out has said "gee, I really regret that workout". Yeah -- feels awesome to do something for yourself. Way to go for sticking with your plan!

I really liked this, so I am sharing

Wednesday, July 30, 2014



When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you queen for a day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that girl has to say.

For it isn't your father or mother or wife,
Who judgment upon you must pass;
The person whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

She's the person to please, never mind all the rest.
For she's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed the most dangerous, difficult test
If the girl in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years.
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be the heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the girl in the glass.
