First blog ever

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

I feel pretty goofy doing this but hey why not everyone else is doing it. No I never give in to peer pressure not me. No actually I absolutely most definitely give in too peer pressure that is why I am here. I can't turn down the goodies at work cause uhh they are goodies. I am angry with myself because I used to pass on them all the time. So what happened? Who knows right? I wish there was a reset button on the back of my head. I just want to reset reset. Reset myself back to healthy. Let me breakdown. I ran a half marathon,,ate like a clean freak, done weekly boot camp classes, twice a week strength training classes, and on and on and on. Hey I was even running 4 miles when I was 6 months pregnant. Today I struggled to run 2 miles. Lame . I mean I have always struggled with my weight but I have also been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for periods of time. I want to maintain forever forever. And how do I stop eating so much all I want to do is eat. Anyways that is it for me I am going to go eat. JK.

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. Blogging is a great way to get your feeling on paper and gives you another tool for accountability. Forget what you used to do and focus on the today and now. Plan your meals and exercise and journal them so you can chart your progess. You can do it! We are here to help! Welcome and get active on this site. emoticon

    Congrats on your first blog! Yeah, you feel dorky doing it, but hey, if it helps you reach your goals, it's all good. Obviously your health is bothering you enough to even do "dopey" stuff in the hope it might help. SP can be a big help, lots of encouragement, motivation and many opportunities for self-education. If you want to get back to where you were, I mean REALLY want it, then you will make it happen. You may find, like lots of people, that it is about way more than eating food. Don't get me wrong, the act of tasting,chewing and swallowing delicious stuff is awesome. But sometimes we are trying to feed something other than food-hunger. Sometimes we are trying to avoid feelings, or sooth ourselves. Lots of emotional-mind stuff can screw up your eating habits. And they sneak up on you, just a little more every day, until boom, they seem to own you. But you've got this, keep plugging away at it, keep running, learning, blogging, thinking, and most of all treat yourself with the same amount of care and love that you would want for your child. You won't be able to not succeed!! emoticon

    I think most of us want to "just eat" but as Judith Beck PhD says "You won't starve if you wait until your next scheduled meal." She has stayed slim for over 30 yrs following her plan. I love "GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN NOW". She says we need to stay out of the kitchen if we aren't there to make a meal or if we aren't there cleaning. Just one of her rules.

    Funny, but so much truth... it wasn't long ago I did 100 miles in 4 days, run/walking 8 miles 3-4 days a week...but something happened. Wish a permanent reset was out there for me. I guess we struggle together to do our best with where we're at.

    I am just starting over and forty years have taught me that there is no easy fix. We are here and doing something, not numbing but facing. Here is to more days like today ❤️
