Fallen off the wagon

So I have fallen off of the healty wagon again and cant seem to figure out how to get back on. 95% of me wants to be successful and reach my goals and get past this "stuff" while the other 5% of me is wanting all the junk I can find to eat and sit on my backside and do nothing. Unfortunately it feels like the 5% is stronger than the other 95%! I dont want to feel this way-I want to lose, to be healty, and do complete this 5k jogging all the way.
I am heading to Mexico tomorrow for a mission trip with my church, I am also taking a mental break from ME for a while. I am going to focus on the needs and happiness of those that will be around me that dont have as much as I have, but in some ways they actually have more. Hopefully I will come back with a new focus and desire. I am also joining a weightloss challenge with some friends, again ladies-we need motivation and accountability and support to be successful in anything we do. Have a great week and I pray we all find our motivation again :)

Aim for a Goal

Girls you all know how big I am at setting goals. I am now even more sold on them! It feels amazing when you reach them and it just gives you the desire to do more and push harder and go farther. As you know my goal is to JOG a 5k (3.2miles) on May 2nd. For some of you this is a breeze, for me...this is HUGE I have never jogged more than 5 minutes in my life. Well I havent been to the gym since Monday, life has been busy and I had a root canal this week. Well today I really had no desire to go to the gym and I got to thinking about the 5k and wondering (more like doubting) my ability to actually complete it, Remember I have a hard time completeing anything! So I thought why dont I just go outside and see just how far I really can go. Ladies after a short walk warm up I JOGGED non stop for a little more than 1.5 miles!! The sense of accomplishment I feel right now is amazing. I can do this, there really is a chance I can reach my goal by May 2nd!
I say all of this to encourage all of you to truly set a goal big or small goal and aim for it and reward yourself along the way at every mini goal, You will feel awesome when you do.

Have a blessed and motivated and successful weekend!

Is Anyone Out There......?

I havent posted because I felt like no one has been reading. But, even if one person reads this and it helps them then it is worth it and I will keep on posting. I was standing in my WW line today talking to a sweet sweet woman that has lost 80+ pounds and she is struggling with gaining some of it back. She said she isnt as motivated as she was when she first you guys ever feel that way? I sure do! She said she just wants that "spark" back and we were discussing ways to get that-try new foods, find new motivation, spring time should help, etc. I highly admire and respect this lady, she always is so positive and cheerful and today she looked at me and said something about not finishing this, just like everything else she fails or quits at. Wow-is she reading my mind?? It amazed me that this wonderful lady feels just like me sometimes. Ladies, we are not alone in our weight struggles!! She got to the scales and the receptionist told her.....You are Not a failure until you quit trying. Those were words we both needed to hear, I think we all need to hear them. Ladies this stinks, its hard, its no fun, and half the time I dont want to play anymore...BUT I know I have done this before and I know I can do it again and I dont want to quit, I truly do want to finally finish something I started and I want all of you right there finishing with me. Find some motivation-call me when you dont have any and lets get our focus back where it belongs!! WE CAN DO THIS!
Remember new goal is March 14th and we should be sharing scale tales still on Mondays.
I lost .6 today, not alot but better than my typical gain :)
Have a great and motivated week

Way to go Loser Chicks!

Due to computer and body difficulties I havent posted this week-very sorry! Way to go to all that have posted with their success stories, keep up the good work! I have found a new desire and a new motivation! I had to go buy fat pants and that was THE END no more games I am dead on focused now. I have been on program all week and already feel better and not like the glutenous pig I have been feeling like :) My new motivation.......Drum roll please.......I am going to participate in the Run to Breathe 5K in Owasso on May 16th!!!! What a great motivator, and you are all invited to train right along with me. So look at your motivation, is it really a good enough thing to truly motivate you? Do you need to find something to commit to to get your backside in gear? I will be gone most of the weekend at a marriage retreat :) Have a great weekend-stay focused-stay motivated and I will post more next week.

At the end of your day will you say I'm glad I did or I wish I had??

New SpringWidget

Happy Valentine's Day!

And happy goal day! How did everyone do? I didnt meet my goal but I am ok with that. We are starting a NEW plan.
NEW GOAL DATE: March 14th
This is a shorter goal time but I think it will help us with motivation. If you didnt stay motivated last time, its ok you will do it this time. Also, CHANGE is hard for alot of us and we jumped in changing everything-what to eat, how much to eat, what to drink, how much to drink, how to exercise, and when to exercise! This time to help with your motivation, try just changing one or two things then increase as you have gotten comfortable with those changes. Dont deprive yourself, just change your ways. The worst thing to do is to "diet" and deprive yourself of everything good-you won't succeed. Look at this as a lifestyle change. My two areas I am going to focus on is WATER and EXERCISE. I dont get enough of either one and I feel gross because of it. Share your new goals with me! Also, let me know if you have met this one or how close you got. Enjoy your Heart day!!!!

Again, Way to go Stacey!!!

Tomorrow is goal day!

I havent heard much from you guys! Stacey has commented that she has met her goal and then some....You go girl!! How is everyone else doing? I am not being as successful as I would like but I am learning new things about myself and sometimes that is more important than watching the scale change. I have been itching to get active, especially when I am stressed or very emotional. I have realized that this may be why I stuff my face full of chocolate :) When I am in stress mode I usually dont have the time to stop, change clothes and shoes, find a sitter, and go for a walk to burn off that "need" but I do have time to shove food in my mouth, chew quickly, and get that momentary "need" taken care of...does that make sense? I have discovered the problem, now I need to find a better solution. Any thoughts?
Tomorrow is Valentines and goal day-let me know how you have all done with meeting your goal! The next goal will be determined and posted tomorrow...Stay tuned and stay motivated!
