The Girl with the Phoenix Tattoo.. with updates!

Thursday, September 22, 2011

This week I discovered I need to use better time management skills. In the last couple semesters, I have been READY for classes to start and have it all planned out. Boy, that did not happen this semester. We all have busy lives so listen up.. plan, plan, and plan. If you do, things tend to go smoother, unlike this week. So next week, we are going to try another plan for fitting in my fitness and my homework.

Anyhow, I am getting back to my focused self which is really nice. All your comments from my last blog really helped but TYKXBOY said something that really hit me.

He said: "Just remember, you don't deserve food, you deserve to be happy and healthy!"

This is so true. Until this was said back to me, I didn't realize I was rewarding myself with food. This is an old habit. Basically, I was rewarding myself with food for losing weight. When I get a moment to breathe, I hope to purchase a food dairy. I think that would be best for me. I know how to eat right - it watching my emotions.

Talking about rewarding myself for my weight loss.. I got my tattoo finished!

I still cannot believe I am that girl that used to weigh 260, that lost 100 pounds, ran her first half marathon this summer and now am the girl with the phoenix tattoo. If I saw me on the street, I'd want to get to know me!

I was reminded of this last night when someone that works on campus stopped by and basically summed me up just like that. I am that girl! Harry, the same guy, told me that in October we are getting a PINK Cybex treadmill. Basically, every mile that is ran/walked on it, Cybex is donated 10 cents to research. How awesome is that!? (OH!!! I just had a thought. I have been having trouble with coming up with a goal. I could focus on doing so many miles on that treadmill in October! Eek!) Anyhow, Harry was telling me because I am a runner! Eeek!

So, that's that!

    You don't have to have a fancy diary to journal your food. A simple notebook is all I use. Then I log in SP when I have time. I wish I could send you a copy of the form I use. (darn SparkMail) It's easy, handy and I love it.

    Way to go! Looks beautiful.

    What a fantastic idea with the treadmill!! I think that's fabulous. Obviously that is near and dear to my heart since my Mom was diagnosed w/breast cancer in June. Run like the wind, sweetie!! Rack up those treadmill miles.


    PS You DO deserve to be healthy and you ARE that girl!

    Sounds like you're back on the right track! Our gym has those pink treadmills as well and the owners participated in that 10 cent challenge last October.
