Mindset 7/5 Tuesday

I have to adjust a little bit for tomorrow because I have to take into account this sunburn ūüė¶ Anyway, here is the Mindset plan for tomorrow:

  1. Upper body workout (I already have alternate exercises ready for tomorrow to accommodate this sunburn)
  2. Walk 30+ minutes – mall walking is what I do at 9 am. It’s safe, air conditioned, and they have a playground for the kids.
  3. Drink 8c H2O
  4. Log intake
  5. plan for Wednesday

For my gratitude:

  1. Call my ma to thank her for coming to visit today
  2. bring my old lady friend at the mall walkers a bottle of water. She always forgets hers and I see her struggling at the water fountain.

Ok that’s my plan! For dinner tomorrow I’m making garlic lemon chicken breast with rice and broccoli. My cleaning project is, you know, everything because my kids only know how to MAKE messes. When it comes to cleaning shit up, I get, “But mom it’s not mine!” Because the my little pony parade – that seemed to be bombed by barbie and her militant friends, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – is mine, right? UGH All you have to say is OK mom and do it! Then maybe next time I won’t have to tell you to do it!!

Anyway, I got cleaning to do. night all!

YOU HAVE TO PLAN

Yesterady, the Fam Bam went down to the beach to watch fireworks off the marina. We were there from about noon to 10 pm. It was a last minute plan and I was all alone in trying to pack and get 3 kids ready etc. But we got it done and had a great time! Except for one thing. I put myself last again.  Continue reading

Slave to my Emotions…

So, this week I am undertaking this pretty huge change in my life this week. Though I haven’t been perfect (FAR from it), I have tried and grown (in little ways) closer to my goals. AND BONUS! I have come one pound closer to where I want to be. BOOM BABY! Trying to keep a check on my emotional eating, I really, really do my best to understand the triggers.¬† 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 Рnot 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

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
