Turning a Setback into a Comeback!

Friday, May 17, 2013

Here I go again. I've gained back 30 of the 55 lbs that I had lost. Last year I lost my job of 11 years and dealt with the stress by eating and being lazy and feeling sorry for myself. I could complain that I work 12 hour shifts and work 5 days a week and don't have time but I also know that other people make the time and so will I.

I have four more weeks of this crazy schedule then I can slow down a bit. I vow to start tracking my food tomorrow and staying within my calorie range. I also vow to stop buying junk food and bringing it into the house. I can't eat it if I don't buy it, right?

As far as fitness goes I've really gone downhill. I was walking for an hour then doing weights and stretching. Today I walked for the first time in I don't know how long and after 25 minutes I couldn't go anymore. This must change. I vow to exercise on days off and on days that I only work 8 hour shifts.

That's my plan for now.

    Get it in gear, kimmie. You can do this! two of my colleagues got riffed this year from our department and don't have jobs. I started complaining that I had to change buildings until I realized that I was taking one of their places. It wasn't my fault or anything, but it did put things into perspective for me. Start working in little things through the day....chair sits everytime you sit down....wall pushups whenever you go through a doorway....up three stairs and down two whenever you climb stairs and viceversa when you descend....I find this makes me more likely to carve time out beacuse exercise creates a desire for more. Remeber...guilt less and kick your own butt!

    YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME. YOU NEED TO START THINKING ABOUT YOU AND YOUR HEALTH. YOU NEED TO STOP SAYING OH I'LL START THAT TOMORROW OR I'LL DO THAT THE NEXT DAY. YOU NEED TO DO IT NOW INSTEAD OF PROCRASTINATING ABOUT IT. TOMORROWS NEVER COME. EVEN IF IT IS ONLY 10 MINUTES A DAY DO IT.
