They did come back on but my entire post is gone.
Nothing I can type is as good as action. Think the gods are trying to tell me that.
So today pulling out the bike. No run scheduled. Windy as hell. Dogs need some exercise, hope they dont fly away. :/
ON WITH THE HEALTHY!
Another day down. Nothing to special. My run was more of a mental war in my head. I WON! I think I’m gonna get rid of dinner entirely and stick to salads from now on. Maybe fish every once in a while.
That is all.
Today was good. Breakfast, check. Lunch, check. 3 mile run, check. 30 min walk with the doggies, check.
Dinner, half check, could have done a bit better with my choices. Not too many veggies on my plate.
And tomorrow is another day.
I haven’t been doing enough to better my health lately, and I’m really starting to see it. It’s showing everywhere on my body. I know going into this with the “once and for all” mentality is a set up for disaster, so I’m gonna approach this “one day at a time”. So today is over, yes I had 2 slices of pizza I could have lived without, I had only God knows how many donuts today, and I really didn’t have to have another donut. But what’s done is done. Tomorrow is a new day!
Now for some goals… I am getting back into running. Gonna sign me up for a 5k!
December 30th 2012, wow another year has gone by! Time flies when you are having fun. I took a look back at where I was in January and I remember the feeling of making those 3 important resolutions and how hyped up I was about getting to them. I was just so sure I was gonna really complete them. I was gonna do everything right and I was gonna complete them with flying colors. I was a great feeling to have and I wish I could have had that feeling all through the year to complete these resolutions. But as with most New Year resolutions, the motivation you have in the beginning is just one that fades with time. I figured if I made it through the first 3 months, it would all be down hill from there. But not as I expected.
But strangely enough I am not upset at not accomplishing what I had set out at the beginning of the year because I got so many other things accomplished that I never thought I would get done. But first here is what happened with the original 3 resolutions and how far I got…
THE AUDIO BIBLE: well, I got through 3 months and after that I just started falling behind, it started with 1 day then 1 week, then before I knew it I was a month behind. I even detached from the church this year. Not sure why? Boredem? Not sure I feel a complete connection with the church. Some of the things the church does just doesnt make sense sometimes. I’m still having issues with why the church does what they do.
THE BOOKS: Well I did a lot more reading than I’ve ever done before. Actually now looking back at my goal, I got to 8 books! Not too shabby. Read, book 1 harry potter, the hunger games trilogy, Shades of Grey trilogy, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. All great books!
THE WEIGHT: Actually I gained weight this year. But I’m not looking at it as a bad thing and here is why…
RUNNING, I’ve been wanting to become a runner, I’ve started the Couch 2 5k program countless times and never seem to finish… That is until this year! Yes I completed the couch to 5k program. It was one of the most awesome things I did this year. I’m still slow as heck at running a 5k, but I know I can do it. I took it a day at a time and finished it, and afterward just felt so proud that I can actually finish what I start.
And talking about finishing what I started, I also had a huge christmas project that I started in Feb. Scarves for everyone at work. I finished 20 scarves this year. It was another huge accomplishment.
So with all this finishing of projects, I think I’m going to follow this momentum and not make resolutions, instead I’m going to work a day at a time. There are going to be days I suck at getting to my goals. There are going to be days that I feel like I can rule the world. But at the end I’m going to look back and see that all my hard work paid off.
I’ve been a little MIA for a while. Feels like its been since the wedding. There is this change going on with being married. Like I’m losing myself and trying to fit into this “wife” role. I’ve gained weight way too fast and am starting to feel the effects of the extra weight. I’m at the point that none of my clothes fit me right and feeling tired all the time. I took a walk Saturday morning and I felt like my body wanted more. Like its missing the exercise. I’ve written posts but havent posted cuz I’m embarrassed to put my failures out there. But enough is enough. In comes my goal outfit, size 12, bought it on my honeymoon at lululemon. It barely fit when I tried it on and was supposed to be my goal outfit for when we got back from our honeymoon, but it just never happened. So its time, gotta lose this weight.
March - 1, me - 2 (+ 3) ;)
End of March and it was a good month! To recap my resolutions…
Resolution #1: Still not quite back into the rhythm of things. Zumba has been a bit more consistent, and with the nice weather coming back around, running is a must. Starting couch to 5k again, looking for possible 5ks during the summer months.
Resolution #2: Four books done, I’ve always wanted to read the Harry Potter books, and though it wasn’t on the original shelf of books to read, I figured I needed to get the ball rolling somehow, so I dove into year one and then got caught in the hype of the Hunger Games and devoured the first book. And since book 2 and 3 aren’t on paperback yet (not huge on buying hardcover), I found book 2 & 3 online and devoured them as well. And the reading continues with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Resolution #3: Daily Audio Bible, reading on schedule. I did slack a bit during spring break but I managed to catch up and I’m back on track.
Please April be patient with me.
207 lbs this morning and an hour of Zumba. Eating went well, very well.
Still deciding on a plan of action. But for now day by day will do. Hurray for a good Monday! I’d make this longer but I want to get back into my book. More on that later. Night.
I just realized I stared tumblr-ing two years ago this month. According to the first post I was 208 lbs. I’ll weigh in tomorrow to see where I’m at, and go from there.
Still thinking about a plan of action…
Last day of spring break, back to work tomorrow. These two pictured here were all for having a lazy day today, so it was. :) Plus weather was horrible out so in bed we stayed!
Enough being lazy, now for some real talk…
This weight loss thing is not about losing weight. Its not. I’ve followed people through out the years and no one ever gets to their goal and stays there. I know it is possible but with the people I’ve followed (blogs, videos, etc), it doesnt seem to happen. The only people that seem to keep it off are the people that dont lose weight, instead they take up running, they become zumba instructors, they become MMA fighters, etc. Those are the people that lose weight and keep it off. I feel like I’ve always known this fact, but just didnt see it in the right perspective.
So now what?
