3-3-2010 Rainy and Sunny Wednesday

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

We have had a rainy beginning to today and then the sun came out. Rather a confusing day.
For me though it has just been a sunny day. I am feeling much better and getting back to exercise. Did 30 min cardio and 22 min strength, took a break did a little sparking, then to the grocery store,, really needed some veggies, and even got to drop off some donations and then back home 30 more cadio and really great big crunchy salad and a little TV. I plan to turn off the TV and spend an hour reading emails. If I dont turn off the TV I get a little distracted.
I had read a number of blogs and statuses so many others are dealing with the flu or bad colds right now it seems like a outbreak. One thing I did this time, unlike many times in the past is to just let go and take the time I needed to really feel better. I would normally try to get back to exercising and being too busy too fast andd then it just takes so much longer to feel better.
I did good for me and that is something I dont do but need to learn to do more.
I am dealing with my emotions envolving my sons pretty good, even talking a bit to my oldest and thought he knew kind of what was going on and I was right. I hope this information will help him to get motivated and one thing he needs to find in himself and believe that he can do this.
I need to keep focused on the goal the big goal. I am not able to visualize what I might look like at my goal weight. I dont remember weighing 150 lbs. I am not sure what age I might have been there probably in mid teens. I have a couple pics about 16 and nearing 18, I think around 16 is close ,but looking at me I am thinking I weigh more. I wish I could see me at that weight in my mind, so instead I am thinking more about what I can do at the weight. I could hike and be in nature that I would love.
I am still growing and learning and that is something I dont ever want to stop.
Now that is one important thing in this journey to keep learning and with that your knowledge and understanding grows. You are better prepared to deal with challenges, bumps, hurdles, any thing that is trying to stop your progress. This is one time in our lives we cant let anyone or thing stop us from really caring about ourselves and what we need to live a full and happy life, being free of restrictions due to weight or weight related problems. To go shopping for hours and try on clothes and shoes anywherel any store, just because they were there. Its time to fight for the health, the fitness and happiness that is ours all we have to do is believe and be willing to work to attain it.
I am going to fight and hard and as long as it takes to get to that special place of being a healthy, fit and fun Deborah Marie.........the girl who was hidden away for too long a time..........ITS MY TIME TO HAVE FUN!!!!!
Come on join me it will one fun and cool time.

    I loved this blog Deb! Thank you for sharing it. I agree we must continue to grow and learn all along the way. Today on the treadmill I was trying to visualize myself at no particular weight, just how I want to feel and be. I think it really helps my mind set a positive tone. Positive affirmations are new to some of us that are just beginning this journey, but oh so important!
