Mindset, Weds, 06/29/16 – Day 3

It’s almost 1 in the morning so I will make this quick. First, I let go of some emotional baggage today that feels awesome. I informed my ex that I can’t talk to him anymore. Ever. Continue reading

Chptr 3: buh-bye

WARNING! SECOND LONGEST POST EVER!

So chapter 3 is about nutrition. It’s talks about quantity vs quality, 7 vital nutrients that your body really needs, and the scientific data to support that conclusion. It was very informative! The chapter itself is thorough and well presented. I hope that I don’t dumb it down for you – I don’t mean to. I think this is where I get lost on some of the programs — because I think I’ve tried them all.  Continue reading

Chptr 2- Exercise Rx. I don’t wanna…

The first chapter of “Transformation” was a heartfelt search into what and why I wanted to get into shape. I laughed; I cried. And at the end – after the most humiliating pictures I think I have ever made very public – I feel I came out a better person.

Chapter Two – not quite as riveting.  Continue reading

Mindset Tues 06/28/16: Day 2

Hi! What a day. It was like one thing after another today. Frustrated and pissy, I didn’t get hardly nothing done that I planned on my damn list. Like NOTHING.

No that’s not true. I called my friend and I blasted a huge thank you for my neighbor. I am planning for tomorrow so that one is done too. And once I finish this post, I will be working out so that’s four. I drank only 2 cups of water today (because I’m a bum), I didn’t get to walk the mall for 30 minutes but I did walk the park for 45 minutes so I say that’s done. I need to log my intake too but I can do that. So really, I TRIED to get everything done, I just need to focus on that water. Continue reading

I needed to stop yelling at my kids!

My family is German Scot. That means we enjoy every little thing, talk shit about every little thing, and argue over every little thing. And we do it LOUDLY. Me personally, I have a lot of patience but once that’s worn thin, I get FLAMING MAD and it lasts forever! When you have kids and they are babies, you are just in awe of how this little miracle came about. When they turn 2, you wonder how you’re going to get through the day without a felony charge. ‘Terrible Twos’ they say. That’s being polite. I call them, “The Asshole Years.”  Continue reading

Mindset 06/27/16: Day 1

True success is not in the big efforts we accomplish once in a while but in the little consistencies we accomplish every day. Which is SO accurate because if it was the once in a while big efforts, my ass would be at my goal weight after skipping carbs for 1 day… Continue reading

Chapter 1, Part 2

Yesterday, I the starting point for my journey in the “Transformation” book. Tonight: What my vision of my goals are at the end of this 18-week program.

Question 1: “Looking forward 18 weeks from now, three changes I will have made that show I’m more aligned with what’simportant to me at a ‘heart and soul’ level are:” Continue reading

My Starting Point

WARNING! LONGEST POST EVER!

I decided to start reading tonight, “Transformation” by Bill Phillips. This is an 18-week program to change you as a whole person, not just to address the physical. Each chapter is designed to have some serious “soul searching” or meditation to help bring you closer to your feelings/ reasons/ etc. Chapter One is laying down the Start and Goal portion and really trying to get into a deeper reason for the changes than, “I want to be thin.”  Continue reading

What’s My Problem??

People say, “All you have to do is eat right and exercise. What’s your problem?” My knee-jerk response is, “Let me show you what my problem is.” Then chase them down with a baseball bat. What’s my problem…. But then I started really thinking about it. What IS my problem?  Continue reading
