Day 6

Is lack of sleep robbing you of your goals?
If you surveyed the millions of us who don't get much sleep, chances are they'll say that the #1 reason they don't is "lack of time." In other words, people have too much to do to sleep. Late hours and frantic mornings are the rule. Who has time for more sleep? What this tired group doesn't realize is that a sleep debt is probably keeping them from acting and thinking at full strength, making even the easiest tasks harder to do. And take longer. Believe it or not, you can probably get more done in your day by getting more sleep. The mental and physical pick-up more than make up for that extra hour or two in bed. - www.sparkpeople.com

Day 2

Are You Neglecting Your Body?
If you crave chocolate as much as Aunt Marge does, you know that nothing else could possibly come first. Her tastes aside, food can actually be more of a foundation than a passion. To have an enriching & healthy life, fitness is a must. Good eating can be part of that fitness springboard that makes bigger things possible. The next months and years are filled with hard work that takes energy and action. If you're starving your body, depriving it of what it needs, you're handicapping yourself in the race for your dreams. And if you're filling it with garbage, don't expect much in return. This all may seem obvious, but too many people sabotage themselves by ignoring that simple fact. For so long, we've been hearing so many bad things about different foods, it's almost as if food is our enemy, one that can kill us or ruin our lives. Truth is, food- good food- is the thing that makes everything else possible. - www.sparkpeople.com

Day 1

"There is a woman at the beginning of all good things" - Lamatine

Here I am again. Got on the scale this morning and WOW scary - 207.9lbs
I currently have 2 pairs of pants that fit comfortably, size 16 and a bunch of turtle neck sweaters, t-shirts and 2 blouses. My closet is full of clothing I can't fit into and a reminder of the confidence I use to dress myself with each morning. I don't feel necessarily less confident but my walk use to be stronger, my head held a little higher and my drive/ambition bigger/greater.

I've been saying for almost 6 months now that we'll start our family in another year, after I loose some weight. Well time is a wastin' and I'm only getting further and further away with each pound put on and each day wasted.

I know I can do this but I have got to go slow. I don't want, I can't, I WON'T fall off the wagon again. I promise to asses each meal and make sure it's the best it can be. And if not a workout I will do something just for me every single day.

I have so many fitness dvd's, books, books on tape, hypnosis cd's I HAVE the resources I just need to set aside a moment, 20-30 minutes to focus, visualize, dream, see where I'm going and do just a little each day to get there. Slowly but sure I know it will come. I will stop expecting huge changes in a matter of weeks and focus on each day, one day and not worry about tomorrow.

One of my clients and friends gave me some information probably a couple years ago now and this morning as I finally sit down and read it, really read it these 3 words stand out

Moderation - Consistency - Rest

This morning I'm ill prepared to eat properly today (no lunch/snacks) packed but I'll record it anyways so I can see it, read it, and make it real.
