Another day...

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Anxious Tuesday, led to anxious Tuesday night. These feelings are soooooooooooooo unpleasant!!! Yikes.

In spite of them, last night I went out to a pasta supper with some friends. I had "pre-thought" exactly what I was going to eat, and what I wasn't going to eat for weeks!!! All that prep was a God-send b/c I stayed firm with my plan and came out of there a victor!! Just goes to show me that success can be achieved IN SPITE of negative FEELINGS. Isn't it so strange the difference between FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS!! I "thought" I would succeed, but I "felt" anxious.

This was a great life lesson for me.

Today, I'm going to tackle a problem that has been an issue with me for almost all my life. Today, in spite of my feelings, I'm going to ACT towards success.

    Way to go on sticking to your plan. That is so hard for me. I always compromise. You didn't. I hope the anxious feeling subside with time and more successes!

Anxious Tuesday

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Last night I "closed the kitchen" after supper. What a lovely technique! However, I woke up so anxious several times during the night... Perhaps it will take time to get over that.

Anyway, I was driven to get on the scales today, even though it's not a weigh in day, but I resisted that too. Onward I go...onward I go...

    Good Job Sandi! This could be something that you build a streak on - closing the kitchen. After a while, it won't be at all anxiety-producing and will be normal. It might even help to explore why this would make you anxious. Sometimes my anxieties are messages about something else.

I actually weigh myself almost every day, but I am actually fairly easygoing about it, and a bad weigh is just a checkpoint for me, tomorrow could be different. I am not generally anxious about my weight.

What makes me anxious is my work.

Good for you!

Kitchen's closed

Sunday, November 04, 2012

This morning I read another member's blog about declaring her kitchen closed after she's finished cleaning up after supper. What a wonderful idea...really!!!! My kitchen doubles as a hallway, however, I could always declare "the sides of the hallway closed" after supper. Where there is a will, there is a way! I have the will! I have the will! I have the will!

I have been looking for a health/weight-loss buddy for a L O N G time! I finally found one on Sunday and it's wonderful to have her along on my journey. I highly recommend becoming a buddy and/or finding a buddy...it can really help us focus our efforts!

Looking to the top of the mountain.

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

I'm 5 lbs away from my goal weight. I'm looking up to the top of the mountain which isn't very far away now, imagining the fabulous view from there, feeling hopeful. Positive attitude, healthy food choices, portion control, and exercise will get me there, and keep me there once I arrive. Today I am imagining the view, but more importantly, I WANT TO ACTUALLY SEE IT!

    Awsome! C'mon the last few feet of the climb can be the most difficult but yet the most rewarding as soon as you hit the top of the mountain. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
