Compliments Never Get Old

Friday, September 26, 2014

I believe, as a society, that we should be building each other up and not tearing each other down. That is why compliments are so important. And I don't even mean comments about a person's physical appearance. Granted, those are always nice to hear.

When I got to work yesterday, I had a voicemail from my boss waiting for me. Now, my boss is just about as sweet as can be, so I never feel taken for granted when she asks me to take care of something. This voicemail was asking to check on something for her and right before she was about to hang up, she thanked me for all my hard work this week. She continued onto how she can count on me and how I get things done quickly and accurately. It was a very sweet message to start my day. She even made this call while she was out on vacation.

It is compliments like this that can completely change someone's mood. You're a hard worker. You are an asset in my life. I love the way you laugh. That is a gorgeous pair of earrings. Are you losing weight?

It's these things, the small phrases that lift people.

You never really know what someone is going through.

Be a rainbow during their cloudy day.

Here is one of my favorite rainbows :)



Enjoy your weekends, my Lovelies!

xoxo

    I totally agree! I seem to know an abundance of people who are unobservant and/or so totally into their own world that it never occurs to them to say anything nice or complimentary to anyone else (or maybe just me :-o). For me, a compliment lets someone know you care, are loving, and thinking of that other person.

Your blog touch my heart to know that you have such a thoughtful boss.

All Systems are GO!

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Happy Sunday, my Lovelies!! This is Shelby writing to you from the comfort of her own home, on her own computer, with her own internet connection!! It only took two years to make this happen again :)

For those of you who have been following me on my journey, 'A' and I moved into our house on August 22nd. This actually involved three moves, which made for an exhausting weekend. Our house is almost fully unpacked and we are settling in nicely. We are definitely happy about this three day weekend.

I started my new job on August 18th, so there really hasn't been a dull moment to take a breath, let alone find time to blog from work :) The job keeps me busy and challenges me, which is a nice change of pace from what I'm used to. The best part? The fact that it came with a 48% pay increase - perfect timing for the increase of financial responsibilities from being a home renter.

I will admit that I made a splurge purchase before I even have seen my first paycheck. Heck, I made it before I even started the job. I bought half-season tickets for 'A' and myself for the Arizona Diamondbacks (baseball, for those who may not follow). Below is a picture of us from that night. Did I mention that he even caught me a foul ball during this game??



This post is mainly to let you know that I am BACK, baby!!

Today was a good day. 'A' and I started out by trimming up a tree in the front yard. We took his son swimming at Grandma and Grandpa's and came home to make a dinner of steak, corn on the cob and Texas Toast. Good stuff!

Since we've moved into this house, I've taken three morning jogs to get acclimated to my new surroundings. We bought this contraption called the Ab Carver Pro (an exercise wheel), which is supposed to kill my abs into shape. I haven't tried it yet, but 'A' woke up this morning with a tender tummy, so that's a good sign.

Looking forward to blogging and checking in with you beautiful folks much more often.

Signing off for now,
All the best,

Shelby
xoxo

    Love it!!!! I remember when you were first together and then I think you moved back to your folks for a while. Then back where "A" is. I think I'm remembering right. Anyway, it was like a love story movie following your blogs....I was like, "nooooooo! She can't move away when things are going so well for her and A." Then you moved back and it was "yessssssss! Now they're together again" Anyway, I'm so excited for you and it's so nice to see this love story have such a happy ending...and beginning! Enjoy each other and his son, your new place, the new job, everything!! What an exciting time!!

Still a Motivator?

Monday, August 04, 2014

I'll be the first to admit I was blown away when I received an email from SparkPeople last night informing me that I was selected as today's Featured Motivator.

I do my best to try to make others feel that they're not alone, because they're not.

As you have seen lately, I've been slipping. I've gotten comfortable, which I think is a horrible word, because I don't feel comfortable. I feel fat again. My pants are tight, my shirts are tight, I won't wear my bikini without a shirt on. I feel comfortable as in: Sure, let's get our 1/2 price shakes at Sonic, let's try that new pretzel bun burger at Wendy's, let's grab pizza on the way home.

The weather in AZ sucks right now. We've had haboobs, which makes running and hiking unsafe. The air is muggy and dirty. We'll have rains just long enough to make our cars dirtier, leaving terrain unsettled and dangerous. Thunderstorms and lightning that shake the ground. Basically, I've been feeling like I don't want to work out indoors because I love being outdoors. So I haven't.

And here I am, twenty pounds heavier than I was at my brother's wedding 10 months ago. 2 pounds a month isn't horrible, you say. Well, I could have gone the other way and lost those 20 pounds to reach my goal for my move-in date.

Obviously that didn't happen. Sometimes I feel that I don't deserve your accolades and kind words. Sometimes I feel like a fraud. I'm trying, but I could try harder. I jog, but I could jog more often. I eat, but I should eat smaller portions.

I motivate, but I could do a better job of it. In three weeks, when I'm moved in to my new house (woo hoo!!), I will have home internet access and will be better able to participate again. I can't wait!!

Thank you for entrusting me with your stories: both setbacks and triumphs. I do not take you for granted.

All my love. XOXO

    Congrats on being a featured motivator. Being a motivator doesn't mean you have to be perfect...in fact just the opposite! I find you more motivating because you are imperfect and because you do grab that pizza on the way home. You are still succeeding and just like me running into temptations. Thank you for being you and I have no doubt that you will start reaching more goals soon. :)

    It was like you took the words right out of my mouth!! I have also gained about 20 pounds this past year and IT SUCKS!!!! I can get my old clothes on, but only with the help of Spanx Extra Firm. I have also made excuses for why I am not working out (I hate going to the gym, I prefer to workout outside, I am busy, it is raining, I need new shoes etc, etc). But as I was complaining to my cousin yesterday (who weighs approx. 450 lbs) I realized that she would kill for the opportunity to have the body I love to hate. She doesn't have the mobility to do the things that I COULD do if I just made time for it. She called my skinny and I was mortified, not realizing that I am skinny to HER. I felt like crap afterwards and I see now that I have to take my health seriously.

    There are a few "regulars" here that I come back and check in on, and Shelby, my dear, you are one of them. YOU are a motivator, and a success story! Look how far you've come! YOU know what to do to take those lbs off again. We took a vacation this past month and I fell into that comfy feeling as well. Desserts, breads.......everything yummy. 'Came home, stepped on the scale, and knew I needed to call up the Jillian Michaels dvds, pull out the cooking light recipes, and get back to it. You're getting our CA weather....not to worry.....last nite was a much cooler sleep, so some relief is on the way.
Big hugs to you! Have fun with the new move! And take care!

    Don't be too hard on yourself. We all fight the same battle from time to time. The fact that you recognize what happened and will take steps to correct us DOES motivate others, a lot more than someone who has never slipped up or taken any steps backwards, because we can't relate to someone who never makes mistakes.

I know that you will do what you have to do to reverse this trend and to get back on track. Never give up!!

My Banana is Your Apple

Monday, July 14, 2014

Bizarre blog title? Maybe so, but bear with me.

I was thinking about my progress the other day, which led me to think about prior times I had attempted to lose weight. This led me to the poignant conclusion that we are not cookie cutter.

And thank God for that, right? How boring life would be! However, it also means that the answer for me is not necessarily the answer for you.

My banana is your apple.

And this is where life becomes tricky. I can tell you about my hikes and jogs and meals, triumphs and letdowns. This should not be construed as any type of 'guarantee'.

Your medical conditions, past experiences, location and preferences could (and should) lead you in a completely different direction, ultimately meeting up with me when our roads cross paths again.

What works for me isn't a slam dunk for others. Heck, it may only be one for me for a short time before I need to step up my game. If I ever talk about something that hasn't worked for me, I'm not recommending that you don't try it. I'm just telling my story. Just because I don't like mushrooms doesn't mean everyone should boycott them, you know?

I guess all I'm trying to say is: DO YOU. Heed some advice. Don't feel bad if you don't take others. Does it feel right for you? Then go for it! Do you know that a certain exercise will kill your bad knees? Modify!

Be smart. Be safe. Have fun. Grunt. Groan. Scream. Sweat. Smile. Laugh. Cry. Love.

LIVE.

    True story! It's so important for people to feel out what works (or doesn't) for them instead of going with what everyone else does. I absolutely HATE running, and have been warned my by doctor to avoid it because of knee problems, but I'm completely aware that running has been a lifesaver for tons of people. I'm jealous of those people, because I would love to be someone who loves running...but I know it doesn't work for me.

We're all in this journey together, but that doesn't mean we need to adopt a "Simon Says" mentality!

Time Flies...

Friday, June 27, 2014

Was my last blog seriously written in April?!?!? Man oh man...

Well, life + lack of computer with internet access leads to long posts that are few and far between.

Update:

I have slacked a little. I've gained a little weight. Nothing too dramatic, but enough for the pants to feel a little tight. I will not be ashamed of this, or embarrassed by it. It is what it is and I can't go back and change my poor choices. I even updated my stats on my weight ticker. However, I have been working out and eating better for the past two weeks. About 5 of those pounds have melted away yet again.

Every once in awhile, I participate in the Throw Back Thursday picture tag that happens on facebook, twitter and instagram - you know, the #TBT posts. I posted this one on my FB community page:

www.facebook.com/thegoodthebadandthe
shelby




The image to the left would have been somewhere in the 2005-2007 range. The image to the right is from October 2013.

Sometimes you really don't realize the changes your body has gone through. I mean, I was there. I saw pants get bigger as my waist shrank. I saw my love of water grow as sodas became too sweet. I saw it all happening day by day. When I step back and see these pictures, I see my journey all wrapped up in one moment in time. It's kinda cool.

I wish all of you this moment. That moment you question: that was me, so how can this be me, too? It's a crazy, weird, unbelievable moment. Feel it. Live it. That WAS you. And this CAN be you.

Enjoy the ride.

Until next time, my Lovelies...

    Great blog! You're right, there's an old us and a new us. We have to embrace both, as there was a lot of lessons learned in both lifestyles.

    So glad to hear from you! It is amazing to compare photos! And thank you for the inspiration to create some of my own dramtic comparison photos! Every wise choice, every mile run, is one step closer to my own dramtic side-by-side comparison photos!

Have a great weekend!
