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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
So here I am, 1:07am and I’m writing my first blog entry about my journey to become the Ultimate Trophy Wife. Being a new SAHM, it’s quite the challenge for me. My blog is going to help me be accountable to keep me focused on my way to building a new me.
Because the old me wants to get lost in the sofa with a gallon of ice cream and a Doctor Who marathon on.
It’s time for a change. To show my kids it’s not cool to be fat. To show my BF that I can care enough about my family to take care of myself. To show myself that even though things have changed, they are changing for the better. Continue reading
