The last straw!

Saturday, May 31, 2014

I had to buy larger pants last weekend. Two sizes larger!
Was it fun? Why, no…no it wasn't.
Oh well, at least it galvanized me into performing better habits this week.

Prioritize--then get it done.

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I have a number of tasks that I do not want to do. They are never as bad as they seem, once I get started. It's just awfully hard to get started.
But this is just like my Elliptical Experiment from a few weeks ago. Getting to the elliptical was hard; staying on the elliptical was easy.
I am applying this to the tasks that are on my list, making me uneasy every time I see them.

    A list, that is what I need, the joy of crossing things off. I too have a hard time getting started...I am a procrastinator with a capitol P. Getting started is hard, but when I do I wonder why I waited so long, lol

    I'm with you. Making the list and then checking off the first item is nearly 90% done.

Sugar Poisoning!

Sunday, April 20, 2014

I stopped eating sugar and all other sweeteners five weeks ago.
But today, our friends brought us some homemade Easter sweets and I decided to indulge. Big mistake.
My heart is racing, I am anxious, hyperventilating, and I feel like I'm going to faint. But I don't feel guilty for eating it. It was science. I recognize that the symptoms are not life-threatening, they will pass, and this was a worthwhile experiment. I have made myself ill before from overindulging in sugar, and this just seals the deal for me.
Sugar Is Not Worth It.

    thanks for sharing this experience. When I stay away from chocolate, I can't eat it without the caffeine keeping me awake all night. Not worth it. You are so right.

You can't out-train a bad diet.

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Not that I'm exactly "training…"
Anyway. I formed the morning-walk habit. Yea me! It makes all the difference in the world that it's not, you know, sleeting any more.
I've only lost ONE of the 21 pounds I gained in 4 months.
Time to make some honest dietary changes.
Yes, I gave up sugar, but I am realizing that I didn't eat much sugar to start with.
I know what I have to do--get off the grains. Sigh. I love my carbs.
But I don't like having only 2 outfits to wear since I outgrew all my clothes. It's just plain embarrassing. And I am not investing in a wardrobe two sizes larger. That's the wrong message to send myself.
Off for my walk!

Plans don't get results--actions get results.

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

I looooove to plan.
I make really great lists and charts and if/then scenarios. I have notebooks and clipboards and stuff on the computer that outlines an idealized fitness protocol. I read and research and I have a clear picture of what a fitness lifestyle looks like.
But for the past 5 months, what have I done about it?
But today I did something. I took my regular walk. And, like my regular walk on Saturday, it made me feel good. It was 30 minutes well spent, and I think I will continue to spend these worthwhile minutes. Daily.
Is this the ultimate expression of my ideal fitness lifestyle?
No, it's just a walk. But it's done, and Done Is Better Than Perfect.

    Small steps...I am a super planner, too, and it took forever to actually take some of those plans and put them into action. The good news is you are starting, and once an object is in motion...well you know how that goes. Keep up the great progress and shine on!
