Day 14 - 1/7/16

Trainer and treadmill yesterday. Trainer amped it up a bit - starting next week, I'm going to ask him to get a little tougher on me. Managed a couple slow jogs on 2 songs, rest walking. Dog agility last night which helped get my total steps up.

My average steps for the week still a little low. Room to improve. Water is still a challenge for me. I know my issues...just need to concentrate.

Day 13 - 1/6/16

Another bummer day on steps/walking. Had to meet sister and mom for some estate stuff which took almost the whole day. I MUST make up my steps tomorrow - no excuses.

Going over estate stuff of my relatives made me sad and frustrated. They had no children, they were the 'end of their line' - just us cousins and on the other side a niece and nephew. They lived fairly simple, enough for their needs and most of their wants. In going through their stuff, we found a few boxes of 'treasures' - nothing big, nothing that 'valuable', but obviously things that mattered to them or meant something to them at some point in their lives. Many of these things were packaged away for 'safe keeping'. And that's what makes me sad. They had some really nice, neat things and I can only surmise that they chose to pack them away for 'later' or 'special occasions'. And here we are, wondering about their items, deciding what they are 'worth' and whether we want them or to put them in the generic estate sale. All their valuables - and they didn't enjoy them themselves.

Why do we not value and use what we have - and ENJOY them? I've decided after the last 3 years of losing several relatives, that it's time to enjoy and use what I have. I'm not saving things for special occasions. Things are things - that's it. My sister was all sentimental about the piano, the organ (yes - an organ that hadn't been used in 40 years), the sewing machine (really) - and I kept telling her "they are just things - they are not our relatives." She has hoarder tendencies...not good. Anyway, I've digressed. My point (was there one?) is that I let sadness overtake me today. Frustration with family, and myself (!) - about getting overwhelmed with STUFF. STUFF does not matter.

Not sure what my post is getting at - just that I need to focus on what's important and let the rest go.

Just read back through a few days of posting - forgot about my friend - that's been bugging me too. She thought she was cancer free after another operation right after Thanksgiving. Now things may be different, And my heart aches for her. The not knowing, the little doubt in the back of your mind, the "what if.." So I say a prayer for my friend - for healing, for peace, for acceptance of the future, whatever it may be.

Day 12 - 1/5/16

Trainer today. Got in a pretty decent workout. I slept funny last night and have a crick in shoulder/neck area. Hope that works itself out. Got delayed by work so did not make treadmill time before the trainer. will need to make up that time/steps. The gym added a few new classes. I want to try some of them out and see if I find a fit.

Food decent so far today - but water is sparse. Will get to work on that now.

Day 10 - 1/3/16

Took all 3 dogs (and husband) for a long walk today. The normal, cool weather is back (Yea!) so it felt good to be out there in the brisk morning. The downstairs was a chilly 55 this morning, so I switched it from AC to heat to bring it back to 60. Yes, the AC was actually on for a couple days over Christmas. I much prefer a cool indoors.

Walking was nice, although I found myself criticizing too much. A couple people had their dogs off leash, a couple bicyclists riding side by side and monopolizing the walkway, a little yapper dog on a stretchy leash being allowed to run all over and not being controlled, that sort of thing. I get so annoyed by people who make no attempt to 'play nice'. I'm working on being less critical, but still...

Cleaning and prepping for return to normal life will happen today. Son goes back to school Tuesday, trainer on schedule for me Tuesday, a mountain of work stuff waiting for me, a bigger mountain of housework/organizing waiting.

I have a love/hate relationship with BL show. I haven't watched it in a few seasons, but I remember how inspiring the show was at first. Then, I got in the habit of watching while eating ice cream (truly). But, I saw some articles about the show changing and beginning again Jan 4. I tried to dvr it and my son has a program scheduled for recording at the same time...not sure yet what I will do. I don't like scheduling my life around a show, but maybe a 'date' for the elliptical on Monday should be on my plan - then if I like the show, I can resolve my programming issue later.

Day 9 1/2/16 home weights, dog walk
Day 8 1/1/16 home weights, dog walk

Day 7 - 12/31/15 - end of 2015

Took 2 of the dogs for a long walk first thing this morning and about to end with weight routine. Did my musing and plotting and semi-planning as I enjoyed the unusually warm morning.

I said some prayers and tried to make commitments to what I want to focus on in 2016. I so want the family situations to improve, but honestly, I only see that changing by removing myself as much as possible. Which will backfire on me by being interpreted and discussed (loudly and frequently) as my being ...me. emoticon I will do my best - in an honest and caring manner. My hopes for my kids and how I can help them will become my priority. There is such a fine line between helping and hindering, so I must be careful with this. My younger son had some trying situations this past year. But I do see how he has learned and grown. Adversity can be a good teacher. I just hope he gets his joy back.

I have some friends going through some trials (who doesn't?). I will try to help and support them. And, when I get focused on how no one seems to care about me, or think about me, etc. - I will thank God that it is indeed better to give than receive. Took me 50+ years to finally understand what that means... emoticon

The Best Year of My life - 1 week down. A good start. Lots of room for improvement, but I've got 51 weeks left.

Day 6 12/30/15

managed to sneak in a dog walk while the rain held off for 30 minutes. Started drizzling again as we finished up. I hate all this rain. Guess I should not complain as we are not in all out flood situation. Lake cove was it's normal, muddy, drained state 4 days ago - now it's at full summer level - up 14 feet. Wonder how much further it will rise?

food good today - water a little better today, but that is definitely an area of improvement for me. Attitude is probably my next area for most improvement emoticon .

Trying to finish up work stuff, tax stuff, house stuff, mind stuff, exercise stuff...2015 stuff. Family member left today who's been pushing my buttons...that's awful that I want to say "yea!" emoticon but I do... emoticon .

One more day of 2015 - I will make it a good one.

Day 5 12/29/15

my steps are below goal. Did the weight routine first thing this am. Food good today. Water a little light again. I know what my issues are.


Missed Day 4 12/28 - again, not a stellar day, but gives me room for improvement. Walking has been a challenge due to rain. Yes, I could walk in the rain, I don't melt. But - behold the underlying truth - I get lazy. Eating ok, water a little below my goal.

was talking to someone today about Christmas and family issues. It's a scary topic for me to discuss with him as we share relatives through marriage. Hope I didn't say too much - but it's good to know I am not alone in my feelings and experiences. Why is it that the people who should be your biggest supporters and advocates are often the ones you must watch out for?

Day 3 12/27/15
I was almost 3,000 steps short on day 3 - I was over about 1,500 steps each of days 1& 2, so my weekly average is fine so far, but something to work on. Yesterday just got away from me. I think I need to realize that there are going to be days here and there that don't work for me - and be ok with that. As long as those days don't creep on me too frequently.

Met 2 old friends for dinner last night - hard to believe we have been friends for 40 years! 1 cancelled on us at last minute due to severe 'worn-outness' - her health has been an issue for several years. Nothing specific, just a general sense of fatigue, run-downness, etc. She gets to the ends of her reserves and just crashes. She really needs to quit working...LOL. And honestly, her health issues serve as an inspiration to me to get myself in better shape. It was nice to catch up with my friends. I find it interesting how different we are - we all seemed so similar back in middle and high school. Life takes you on different journeys.

OK - time to get the house back in order, exercise back on front line, and on with the best year of my life.

Day 2

walked again with the dogs 2.5 miles only, but at least it was something. Did weights at the house. Ive done some walking about also, just not what I'd consider exercise. Eating has been ok. Water has been great.

Attitude - well - it's amazing how family knows how to just push your buttons over and over again. But, I'm working on my reaction. I just hate that my son has to see/be involved.

Today is my 52 birthday. I am inspired and motivated to make the next year the best year of my life. I am recommitting to living the healthiest and happiest year that I possibly can.

I spent some time reflecting on what I would like to see from myself this coming year as I was walking the dogs today. Some things are under my control (I think), Some are not. All I know is that I will make the best decisions I can in my attempt to make this my best year.

I am rereading Debbie Ford's The Best Year of Your Life, as well as reading another book I recently purchased about getting out of you mind and into your life. My reflections as I was walking included some thoughts about ridding my life of toxic people and situations. I have always hated that phrase 'toxic people' - but I have come to realize that they do indeed exist. These people and situations will not be easy to remove completely - but I am making myself a promise that I will not be manipulated, influenced, made sad/angry/frustrated/infuriated/annoyed/etc by them.

My goals this year:
increase water
10K+ steps per day
weights 3x per week
meal planning and Living the Plan
Attitude
Family

I look forward to starting the best year of my life!

ate mexican last night - I have learned over the years that this is not something I should do on a regular basis. LOL. We had a meeting of adults for a goup we are in. I ate about 1/2 of what was on my plate - should have stopped at 1/4...Kept waking up last night feeling full and yucky...last mexican - of my life? Maybe not, but I know without a doubt, it should be a very infrequent choice.

Trainer yesterday was good. The last 2 weeks have been infrequent weight lifting and I could tell yesterday. So - tomorrow will be an at-home lifting session. Also, am hoping to get in a good, long walk with the dogs if the weather cooperates. It is a rainy, dreary day here today. And WAY too warm. Don't like it - give me cold, or at least cooler, temps at this time of year.

I have been thinking and planning for the new year - and making good progress, when I realized that my new year should start Dec 25 - my 52 birthday. Why wait until Jan 1 to have the best year start when it SHOULD start Dec 25? So - I won't wait and it will start. So I need to finish up my lists, my daily goals, my plans, etc so I can start Christmas Day. I am not doing a full blown whole30 - but I am being inspired by the program. And unfortunately, as Christmas Day is my birthday, and this year I will see my mom, I assume she will bake me a birthday cake (I could be wrong and she may have learned from the past) - and if so, I will be gracious (yes - I will) and have a piece (small one). SO my no-sugar, no white flour goals will not go into effect on day 1 - BUT that's ok. My mom is more important than a few bites of sugar and white flour.

So - I must make my final decisions (ha - always room for adjustment) on steps, miles, exercise goals. I will post those tomorrow (if I make time to get on here).

About to head to the gym to meet the trainer. Massive headache this morning. We will see how the training session goes. Trying to get a few work things out of the way before I head there. That is a problem for me - I sit down to take care of a 'few things' and then I end up shaving time off my allotment for exercise. Another issue for me in 2016.

Just a few days left before my birthday. I so wanted to 'be me' again when I hit the new year of my life. LOL Gives me something to work for in 2016, right?

Speaking of which, still getting my game plan together. Funny how it always seems I'm 'fixin to' or ' planning' or 'prepping' or 'thinking about'...bout time to DO. actually I do DO...my meals are pretty good, snacking is not 'bad', exercise is better but with room for more consistency and higher intensity. Attitude - I am working on minute by minute.

Lots to do the next few days. Trainer tomorrow. I will not cancel!!!

a comment by an acquaintance yesterday had me mulling over things. The comment was about how things you love, that direct your lifestyle and choices, can sometimes lead to destructive, obsessive behaviors. what changes so that we allow positive, inspiring choices to become unhealthy, destructive things that control us every moment of everyday leading us to be disappointed in everything we do? Ok - I'm being a little over dramatic here, but it's true. I see so many people with little to no moderation in their lives - it's all or nothing. And most times, because most people don't accomplish 100% of what they attempt, it ends up being nothing and people think they are failures. Or, because you are not 'in competition', you are viewed as a failure...by them - which then extends to you. sigh. This isn't coming out right.

anyway - I just found the comment interesting and thought provoking, My goal is to be inspired and motivated, with realistic goals and expectations. Not allowing my efforts to become obsessive and destructive. Reminds me, my brother-in-law recently went on a cruise. He returned saying he was way over his goal weight so he is watching what he eats and upping his exercise dramatically (he IS an obsessive person) - his goal weight....145... emoticon

Skipped the trainer today - probably shouldn't have. Will have to make up the workout here at home. Had to get through work stuff and personal stuff - and it's a dreary day here.

Attitude, organization still on my mind - ploughing through with the mind before I do it in reality...LOL.

Getting down to the end of the year. Took the dog to do her therapy today for the special ed classes. She did extremely well today - hopefully brightened up the day for some of the kids. The higher functioning class had a group read for her - the Gingerbread Boy. Very cute. The lower functioning classes are the ones that tug at your heart. I wonder about their homes lives. Makes me sad/anxious in a way. I struggle so to try to establish any type of routine and improvement...when I do not have even a smidgen of the issues these kids and their families have. Why do I struggle so and WHY WHY WHY do I have such a hard time maintaining joy/happiness? I am constantly reminded of how grateful I should be (and I am) - why is it so easy to focus instead on the negative?

This NEEDS to be the main issue I work on from now on. I truly believe that this is the root of most (maybe ALL) of my issues. Attitude. I know I've said it before. Maybe if I say it every hour, I'll start paying attention.

Started my list of 2016 goals. Will work on that the next couple weeks to really come up with how I want to organize my days going forward. Reviewing and improving the meal plans.

Last day of November. 32 days left in the year. I will not end the year where I want to be, but I am in a better place than a month ago.

Trainer planned for Tues and Thursday. I have been very consistent for the last 5 weeks. I will end the year in a consistent manner which will set me up for continuing in the new year. I'm working on my eating plans - and will have those in place - in print - by the end of tomorrow. I've been cleaning up files on my laptop as well as office computer - exercise file - which has some very useful information - too bad I have forgotten what was there.

So what do I want to focus on in December? Mindset - attitude - this seems to be what needs the most work for me. Since it affects so much - eating, exercise, family life - I need to 'improve' this area. I can't deny reality - but I can focus on the positive instead of the negative.

Happy Thanksgiving Day! I've always loved this day. I admit, it is about the food in so many ways. My grandmother's dishes, which were handed down from her mother and in some cases her mother as well. We will be with my husband's family in a few hours. Most of my family is out of state this year. It makes it easier in some ways. We (my immediate family) always smoke a turkey and we have our own mini-Thanksgiving tomorrow after the guys return from hunting.

We really don't go overboard on the food - the only casserole is a sweet potato one that I don't eat. Everything else is reasonable. Our absolute favorite is the smoked turkey soup I make from the smoked turkey carcass - a recipe I found in Prevention magazine probably 20 years ago. Slow cooking for 24 hours - it is wonderful and the house smells so great!

Tuesday, a friend made a comment about picking up the meal Weds afternoon from a restaurant. He said he nor his wife were much for cooking. And that makes me sad. When I say Thanksgiving is about the food - I guess I mean it's about cooking the family traditions for the people you love. It's passing on the love that has been given or shared year after year. I still remember helping my grandmother as we made the dishes and then sharing a smile as we dug in at the table.

Long dog walk today - need to work off some pecan pie I'll be eating later.

11/22/15 - and the world has changed again since my last post. I guess it actually hasn't changed - my awareness or perception of it has changed. It is imperative to be in the best shape possible for whatever lies ahead.

Since I have started with the trainer, I am up 6-7 pounds. Wow. Talk about bad reaction. I know it is not muscle. My eating is a little better than it was - but obviously, I must make additional changes. And water. That is always a poor area for me. I will not give up. I still visit the whole30 site - and I will attempt to be 'somewhat' whole30 influenced. But. as with every 'diet' (and life in general, HA), there are extremist that must be avoided. Common sense, everyday effort, reasonable expectations. And hope. This is what I am striving for.

This is not a pity-me, poor-me post - it is an attempt for me to figure out myself and why I sabotage my attempts to get healthy.

Today, I mindlessly went through the drive thru. Actually not mindlessly. After I ordered and while waiting to pay and receive, I was asking myself why I do this. I thought about driving up and telling the server, "I'm sorry - I can't take this - give it to someone" - paying and leaving without it. But I didn't. After I ate about 1/2 of it, I thought to myself "you're full enough - stop eating - throw it away" but I didn't. So - I made several choices to continue bad behavior.

And why? I've touched on it before. I think I sabotage myself because I am so afraid that I can't do this. So, I am making excuses for myself. When I fail (again) - I can say "Well, I COULD have done it, but I know I did..." and insert all the times I know I have not given my all.

I think I am so afraid to give my all - and then fail. It's one thing when you choose to fail. And let's admit - we all at times choose to fail by cheating a little here and there, not being honest, etc. But - to really, truly give all your effort - and see no change, or little change - that's hard.

So - my choices - continue to give a half-A$$ed effort and stay where I am, give up and get worse - OR (ding ding ding) - be honest with myself - and start (REALLY FINALLY START) a whole a$$ed effort to be the best I can be. I know what I SHOULD do - I know what I (mostly) WANT to do. It is up to me - and me alone - to DO WHAT I NEED TO DO!!!

Continuing my ramblings...working out yesterday with the trainer, I questioned him about the 'movements' I've been seeing or hearing about:
Whole30, Ketogenic, clean eating, blood type diet, etc. - it was actually refreshing to me that he seemed unfamiliar with all of them. And sad to me that I knew something about each of them. emoticon

I know nothing about Ketogenic other than a family I know doing it and it seeming to work for them. Whole30, I attempted - but honestly don't think it is for me. I still follow posts of a few people on the forum - and one stated something about being grumpy, hating it - and just wanting it to be over the whole time she was on it. Which I find interesting - if you're unhappy and resentful on an eating program, it's pretty much a given that you're not going to succeed, right? I get that it takes effort to change your eating habits - and there's going to be some discomfort - but I believe that you should not undertake a program you wouldn't consider being on the rest of your life. Too many double negatives?

Anyway - I guess I'm trying to wrap my head around finding a sustainable way of eating. I know, all in all, my version of clean eating is the right way to go. And I did wonderfully on clean eating for about a year - before something happened - WHAT??? - that derailed my efforts.

Oh yes - I remember, now - WORK, and LIFE, got in the way... emoticon

Actually, it was our work overload in late 2012 and all of 2013 and most of 2014- and related stress, not sleeping, anxiety, unhappiness that did me in.

AND it is about damn time that I quit using the past to define my present and future. Get over it. Get moving to where I want to go. It is my choice - my decision - my effort. Get moving. Now.

My friend's surgery was moved up to today - everything seems to have gone well and they believe they were able to remove all her tumors. I hope she will have many, many healthy years to live.

I ran across some postings from a couple we know from son's school - they have lost a significant amount of weight - through clean eating, working out, and ketone stuff. It's impressive what they have accomplished!

I remember when I first did clean eating and how much better I felt - and how the weight just melted off. How do I get back to that? I know what I need to do - it's the doing that's hard!! emoticon

Trainer appointment tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

November 1

Grateful for health and opportunities. I have a grateful/thankful jar I will use this month to assist in my motivation. Still working on how to use it. And how to aply to my overall sense of living. It's hard to live in a world full of ungrateful people...

Surgery for aunt Nov 12, surgery for friend Nov 18 - hoping they both get relief they are seeking and that surgeries go well for them.

Trainer sessions will continue and I will strive hard to get more cardio in this month. I hope to see the scale move down some this month. Increase water is a biggie this month.

Attitude, water, weights, cardio - lots to work on.

4th (of 20) trainer sessions done today. I am feeling pleasantly sore. I need to get my eating under control and modified a bit. Increase my cardio a bit as well.

Since beginning these trainer sessions, the scale has gone up 4 pounds. I hope this is a temporary thing. I have not been drinking enough water lately - so I'm thinking I may be dehydrated. Increasing water yesterday and today and I'll see what happens over the weekend.

Friend has surgery scheduled for Nov 18. I hope they are able to get the tumor safely so she is cancer free. It's been a long 3 years for her.

2nd session with trainer was MUCH better. I wouldn't consider it challenging, but it was definitely a decent workout. I have high hopes. It's so hard to look at myself in the mirror as I'm lifting. What happened to me? How did I allow myself to get where I am?

It is what it is. I have starting moving down the path I need to go. It will take time. I know that. But still - UGH!!!

Was hit with relativity the last few days as well. A friend battling cancer received a hopeful 'potential' treatment option after receiving devastating news last week. She's gone from 'there's nothing we can do' to 'we may have an option'. Not a full blown treatment plan yet (hopefully next week) - but a potential. And I am shamed to realize what I spend my time worrying about...Perspective is needed in all of life. Another acquaintance just found out her breast cancer has returned. Hopefully localized. It's all relative...I must realize the opportunities in my life and be thankful for what I have...

Met with trainer today. I decided to end the year by meeting with a trainer twice a week for 30 mins. Just to focus on weights. I WILL do cardio on my own. Today was pretty light - I know I'm out of shape, but the bit I've been doing at home is much more intense than what the trainer had me do. I know he's gauging me to decide what I need - so I have high expectations for my next session.

However, I am slightly worried about what happens if this doesn't help me...no need to worry at this point. I think just being on a schedule should help me. I have been so inconsistent for the last few years. Surely if I make a consistent effort, something with give, right?

I also will attempt to track what I eat to give myself an idea of how I'm eating. I hate tracking food as it takes so much time...but I must make the effort. I CAN get back in control and on the right path. I can.

End of Sept - on to a new month tomorrow - a new quarter along with a new attitude and bumped up motivation!

Stepping out in Faith - new motto/mantra for the last quarter of 2015 to go with my 15-15-15 theme. Everyday - what do I need to be doing? Where am I being led each day? I was not made to sit on the couch and watch TV or sit at my desk 'watching' and reading about other peoples' lives. Step out - in Faith - each day and watch what happens.

Almost end of September now - not doing such a great job of logging in and updating my progress or lack there of. At one point, I was down 10 pounds - but this was due to stress affecting my eating (not able to). Now, I am up about 4 pounds - so I'm still down from where I began. The last week, I have eaten whatever - and some bad choices in there too. I must refocus and get back to clean eating. I am working hard at coming to some kind of 'acceptance' of things, if you want to call it that. I need my peace - and I need to realize that worrying and obsessing about how to 'fix' things just makes it worse for me and everyone else.

My 15-15-15 goals are still in place - some days I do a little better, some days a little worse. Time to refocus on my goals again. And maybe refine some - and redefine if needed. My problem (one of them) seems to be to get feeling in a funk if/when I miss my goals or don't do what I attempt. I have a hard time forgiving myself. I waver between setting guidelines and rules and WANTING so badly to live up to them - and realizing that failing at anything makes me feel pretty rotten about myself...

bad post - should have waited til I was feeling more upbeat. I need to pick myself up - and move on.

How does time go by so quickly? Can't believe it's now the end of August. I started another effort - 15-15-15. For 15 weeks to end out 2015, I will do at least 15 minutes of exercise every day, along with some other things in an attempt to organize, motivate, and get some movement going in my health. I'm tracking in another journal I keep, so I won't be on here updating my progress on a daily basis.

Finishing up week 1 and am down 3 pounds as of today. I don't really count that - cause my weights tends to up and down - but it's very encouraging to me and hopefully will help me not abandon my efforts after 1 week... emoticon

Relationship issues are bothering me again - I don't get why people are mean. They seem to go out of their way to be nasty, ugly, exclusionary, etc. WHY?? I need to get over it. It just hurts to see the impact on others.

Another week ahead to eat clean, exercise, get stuff done, etc.

Back from my trip helping to finish up the lives of my relatives. I said something like that to my sister yesterday which triggered some sad, reflective comments. It's very hard to say goodbye to our childhood. My sister won't finish up the estate stuff until mid next year and I'm beginning to wonder if she's going to drag it out because she can't bear to let go of the past.

Anyway - I spent the plane trip home rereading one of my favorite books "the Best Year of Your Life" by Debbie Ford. Doing some of the work to figure out what it is I want and how I want to get there - yes, triggered in part by this latest trip. Trying to get organized, schedules in place, food plans in place, etc.

August - already! wow! I have 5 months until my next birthday. As I've said many years before, I don't want to get to my next birthday without some improvements - in health, weight, attitude, etc. THIS year - it WILL be different.

Yes - I feel for my SIL's friend - both losing the dogs as well as feeling responsible. He was a very responsible, loving owner which makes it so tragic.

Heading back to Texas to help my sister with our relative's estate. Son is heading off to football mini-camp, so I can snatch a few days to help her out. But, of course, that messes with my planned routine. I won't make the Aug 1 run/walk I had signed up for...did I ever REALLY think I would do it??? LOL. I must get serious and committed someday.

I was mulling over some stuff the other day - I keep saying "when I get into a routine", "when things get settled", etc. At my age and with what's going on with my mom, my ILs, my kids - this is as settled as it gets. When the kids are young, you think it will eventually settle down. It doesn't - it's Life!! And things are going to get more erratic, more unsettled as the years go by. Yesterday was 9 month's since my dad passed. Mom was pretty emotional at church. Strangely, all the hymns sung had verses about being parted and meeting again in heaven - did not help. Or, maybe it did - who knows. But. from now on, things are just going to get - not worse, but different. My husband and I are starting to have joint issues, etc. It's a fact that we have to deal with - not be depressed about - but aware of and learn how to deal with it.

Not meaning to be depressing - just acknowledging that it is what it is. (Think I've done this before - I just tend to 'forget'...)

So terrible about the dogs and heat stroke. We went camping in the Nantahala Rain forrest over the weekend. It might have reached 73 degrees. Wonderful but the 90 we got home to was too hot.

Another chapter read - and nothing new and exciting in the book - it's all stuff I KNOW - have known for years. I'm not reading for new knowledge, I'm reading for motivation and commitment at this point. Although I have not read the entire chapters on food, it appears to be clean eating. Simple, straight forward - limit sugar, eat real food, exercise, think with a positive outlook. All things I know - but forget to do day to day.

Walk at mountain yesterday with dogs and husband - then arm weights in afternoon. With the dog flu going around, it has been suggested that we not take the dogs to the mountain. Hope we did the right thing taking them. We has no interaction with other dogs and we took our own water bowl and water. A friend of my SIL took his dogs to the same mountain last week - both died of suspected heat stroke later in the day! We watched the dogs closely and have seen nothing suspicious.

Working on my food plan (again). School starts in 2 weeks (UGH!), so I'm hoping once we're back on a schedule, I can get a routine set. For food and exercise.

Can a reset get a reset? Picked up another book yesterday to help me on my attempt/journey/experience/life. LOL. The Daniel Plan. Which is not an impromptu purchase - I've considered this book for at least 3 years. The B&N gift card finally burned through my wallet and I purchased it. Read a few chapters last night - got to the one that is probably most important - I can't do this on my own with my own willpower. I need to ask God for help - to help me every second of every day. So I am. It seems frivolous to say "God - help me lose weight" - which is NOT what I'm doing. I'm asking for help to get healthy - to be the person I was intended to be. To be healthy for whatever He has in store for me in the future. Will try to get in a few more chapters over the course of today. It starts today. Really.

July 15 - time flies. My July is not turning out as successful as I had hoped. Not to say it still cant turn out on a positive note - it can - it WILL.

Had lunch yesterday with an old friend whose wife is battling cancer. It's been a rough, hard couple years for them. My own last 2-3 years have been rough in their own way for me - but no way as 'real' as their struggle. As they say - everyone is battling their own issues everyday. It's not easy for anyone.

I guess I am in a rut today. Time to snap out of it. I have too many 'little' things going on - too many things in play at once. I need to focus on a few things and GET THINGS DONE instead of getting to things here and there and never finishing anything. And that includes getting a dietary and fitness schedule in place and then following through on it.

July 6

interval class at gym. It was good - tough, but good. Feeling it in the arms and lower back today. I didn't realize how sore I was from wakeboarding this weekend until I got in class today. Dog walk tonight also added on.

water had been good today. Food was decent - just had a couple too many mini banana nut muffins I made this afternoon for son.

Tomorrow - have to run lots of errands and head to the warehouse. It may end up being a rest day tomorrow - just have to see if I can squeeze something in.

Happy July 4! It's a rainy, soggy day where I am - hoping the skies will clear soon as we can get out and enjoy the day.

Dusted off a journal I had started 41/2 years ago. Except for the amount of weight to lose - I could have written every word again today. Not good to see that I am still struggling with the same issues. Isn't it past time I get something done instead of talk about it?

the past few days I have done my walking and arm weights. So this month, this half year, I am off to a fantastic start. My journal will be different this time.

July 1 - love the feeling of a new month -so many possibilities. Now to make those possibilities reality.

Did a walk this am with some hill sprints thrown in the middle. The dog was confused why we kept going back down the hill. I think he was tired.
I still need to do some weights and stretching. It just started thundering and raining here = might as well get that done now.

Goals for July -
NO fast food
Water - 64 oz a day minimum
Clean eating - no prepped snacks
Limit sugar, bread, chips, etc. (guess that's a repeat of clean eating, huh?)

Exercise - prep for the 5k Aug 1. See about adding in some jogging. I realized it's been 4 years since I realized I had the broken toe which led to all the foot and hip issues. 4 years ago, we got this place at the lake and we were running/jogging every night. I was in pretty decent shape then. Amazing what happened in the 4 years since... emoticon

Back from my trip. Was able to be with my relative for the last 24 hours of his life. He did 'talk' to us for a few minutes when we got there - so I hope he realized we were there. Spent he next few days arranging what had to be done. Managed only 1 very short walk while there. That's ok.

Since I've been home, we've done some 'mild' walking, a few light weight sessions, and a couple wake board sessions. Nothing too impressive, but something.

Eating is getting better. Husband's psoriatic arthritis is really becoming an issue. He is changing meds again - and hoping to get some relief by changing eating along with the meds. I will do all I can to support that - and hopefully I will get some benefits as well. Tonight will be grilled veggies (squashes, onions, portabella mushrooms) along with cantelope, pineapple and salad. My snacking MUST reduce.

Next week I will get back in the gym. Plus get some much needed housework done. Work could become extremely busy very quickly - may know something early next week. Not sure what I want to happen. I will take it as it comes - and do the best I can.

June is off to a decent start - always room for improvement, tho.
June 1 - gym weight class, full body + 5 miles
June 2 - 4 - walking 3-5 miles each day
June 5 - gym tabata class - full body + 5 miles
June 6 - 3 miles

Food has much room for improvement.

I have to go out of town Tues - Fri. We will see how walking and eating go. It will not be an enjoyable trip - traveling to be with someone at the end of his life. I have no idea what condition he will be in when I get there. Or what to expect of the few days I am there. Sounds strange to write this down so 'clinically'. The past few years have been so focused on the ending of things, including too many deaths. I guess that's what happens when you hit 50 - your parents, aunts, uncles, extended relatives - they all go downhill in health and then go. Several of our friends have also ended their marriages this past year. I guess I never really spent much time considering midlife crisis stuff. I'm starting to understand it a little better now. LOL

So - it's time (been time) to reassess what I want from life - and let go of things I always thought I'd do that really don't matter anymore. Figure out what I really do want - and how to get there - and get in the shape I want to be in to do what I want to do.

Saw this today:

I am not in competition with anyone else. I am only trying to be better today than I was yesterday."

Well - something LIKE that. My competition is with myself. Only.

Water, clean food. Perspective.

Spent this morning catching up on logging expenditures, etc both for work and personal. I keep a fairly detailed log of our spending - my husband and I were discussing this a couple days ago. he questioned why I do this when we rarely (never) use this info to move forward. I think this sums up my thoughts on logging food. I see so much time devoted to logging activities and food - but does anyone ever spend the time to analyze and make a plan going forward? I guess logging it makes you realize and think about what you are doing - but does it actually come into play influencing your behavior going forward? So far, it has not done anything for me...but have I tried to be proactive? Guess not. Not being negative - just trying to come to terms with what I am willing to do. For me - planning the meals for the week ahead does much more for me than logging actual/as it happens/happened. I am usually catching up when I log on here - so it's a look back and see how I screwed up kind of thing.

Water is my focus today. And planning out the week ahead. Summer has started. Make it a good day.

Thought I posted yesterday - ? Sat run was good. I ended up being the mile 1 announcer. Last person passed me at about 23 minutes and then I was able to walk/jog the last 2.1 miles. Total time was 50:05 - so take off 23 mins and I did 2.1 miles in 27 mins. Not great but it's a start. Legs felt heavy. Shins were hurting on the hills. Did another 2+ miles walking the dogs. Fitbit had me at 9 miles for Sat, 5 miles for Sun. I forgot to put on the wristband this morning before I walked the dogs. today's number will be off, but at least I'll have some idea of rough miles.

Water needs to be my main focus. The food part is 90% there.

Memorial Day run tomorrow - a couple days early. I am supposed to help with the race, but I think they have enough helpers. So I am hoping I will be able to walk it/jog some of it possibly. Whatever happens tomorrow, at least I'll be outside some. I spent most of today inside trying to get paperwork completed. I think I did - at least for the next few days.

Did arm weights and some ab work tonight. Not enough - but some.

I realized today I have slacked on the water again.. Mental note to get back to the water.

Need to finish prepping for race - we have to be there at 6 am to help set up.

'just' walking has been my activity for far too long. However, I read someone's blog yesterday about your 'aha' moment or quote.

I think my 'aha' quote is 'IT IS WHAT IT IS'. It is not what you want it to be, it is not what you imagine it to be, it is not want you need it to be...it IS what it IS. And I must learn to work with what is.

I also saw a post on FB (not a big FB-er, just on occasionally) from a man losing his young daughter, Juliette. She is probably gone at this time today - my heart goes out to him and his sons. I have nothing to complain about - not really. So - stop complaining, start doing. Start living the life I want. The summer of what I want the rest of my life to be.

Mtn walk today. Cut it a little short - hips and knee were acting up. Stretching would do so much for me, I know.

Water is a little behind again - add that to my list of things to work on.

2 half days left of finals - then summer break is here. Not ready.

Thanks Jibbie - I follow (loosely) Flylady who I think is/was associated with Pam. Good advice. Clutter everywhere in your life messes up so much - mostly attitude with me.

'Just' walking the last couple days. Made my 5 miles each day. Heading to basement to get some arm weights in before heading out to a music festival. We rarely do things like this - so we'll see if anyone has any fun...LOL.

Ended up eating out all meals yesterday - rare thing for me and hopefully not to be repeated very often. Gotta get my meal plan together, Son has finals M-W (1/2 days), then he's out for summer. Happened way too quickly. He'll have football practice 3-4 times each week in am all summer except for July 4 week - starting day after Memorial Day, so I need to get my plan together for what I will do while he is at practice. Office time is not what I want to do while he is working out. I MUST get my physical activity in while he is as well.

House plans need to be finalized as well: number 1 issue is replacing the carpet upstairs! Which means I NEED to start moving my office to the basement this next week so that plan can happen. Guess I should find carpet as well - huh?

You can get organized. I use to follow the Slob Sisters, Pam Young and Peggy Jones and learned so much from them. They had A.D.D. but they got organized. Learn to put away whatever it is you pick up from this point on. Have a place for it to go, or get rid of it. I keep telling my little GDs that we must be organized and put things away where they belong so we can find them again.

2nd day of reset. Food has been good (exception the M&Ms - but doctor said all in moderation).

Water with lemon - on track to get my 8 glasses today.
Exercise - will walk tonight and get some weight work in for arms. Did pushups last night. I didn't notice the batwings taking up my arms this past year...hope those can go away.

I think I'm going to end up tracking my food at the beginning of the day and adjusting at the end. I find myself tracking as I go along, but not getting dinner tracked. Maybe it will also help me to live my plan a little better.

Now to organize my house a little, along with my food and exercise.

I've been 'flirting' with a few forums and need to make a commitment for the summer. So Sparkpeople is my choice. It's time to get serious - at least for the summer.

Got a clean bill of health - various appointments last week and this week to check everything out. There is nothing 'wrong' with me. Well - I do need to have a blood test repeated Thursday to make sure glucose levels are ok - we'll see. BUT - all-in-all, I am blessed to be in a healthy position.

This summer will be my reset time. Clean eating, lots of water, getting back to consistent, challenging workouts - and let's throw in some attitude adjustment while we're at it! I had tried out a dietary plan that was supposed to aid my inflammation issues, while dropping pounds. Did not work for me - and my LDL levels went up significantly over the last year. My overall LDL number is still in the 'optimal' range, so I'm not in 'danger', but the spike over the last year bothers me. So, I am ditching that way of eating and going back to the healthy way of eating I used to follow. Not sure how I ever got away from it. How does that happen? You go along - happy, comfortable - then - BAM - all of a sudden, you look up and you're eating crap (some) and there's an extra 20 pounds following you around?

SO - my plan: update my meal plan, make sure I get in 64 oz water each day, GO to the gym classes, lift weights, do planks, WALK, BIKE, SWIM. Summer, 2015 - a good time to reset ME.
