MightyFull's Journal, 05 February 2013

Confession: Everyone here knows I have been struggling to find some sort of semblance of my former exercise and eating routine. Yesterday, I decided I wanted to see how much I could eat in a day...and just stopped tracking what I'd eaten. Yeah, not really a healthy idea - cause for the most part, it wasn't healthy food.

Today I ordered Turbo Fire - through Beachbody - it's not because I needed more workout DVDs (cause I already have plenty), I wanted something new to help encourage and spark my regaining my mind.

Yes, I'm still signed up for 40 classes of Kickboxing/Warrior Kickboxing and I do enjoy it - when I go. There are parts of each of the classes I do not like and I know why. I am out of shape. The shape I was is disappearing. The motivation I had has diminished. And I'm just trying to find myself again.

Lent is coming up - and I will be giving up something - I had initially said "junk food" - and Allen said I need to specify what that means to make it real. "Junk Food" - 90% of what I've been stuffing my face with for ah, let's see, since December started till now. That specific enough? I know - not by Coach Gail's specifications - and yes, I will be making a S.M.A.R.T. goal to accomplish my goal for myself. I had a specific goal made over 2 years ago that I would be at my ideal weight of 179 - March 27, 2013. And frankly, I probably would have been there, had things been different. I'm re-goaling. I know that's not a word, but you get the point. I'm changing it to March 27, 2014. And the weight goal to 185. Think that would be a healthier goal weight.

I've tried the baby step approach of just setting my goal on www.Fatsecret.com of 5 lbs at a time. It's so not realistic. I would rather see the big picture versus the step-by-step version. It may work for you. Kudos if it does.

My energy level has been, well, not. I am going back to working out in the morning. Not because I just love getting up super early, but because I can't talk myself out of it as easily. In the evenings after work and at the end of my day, I've found I'm an amazing negotiator. 85% of the time, I negotiate myself right out of working out. I've got skills. Emotional eating skills. Last night, I was excited to get home and eat two packs of Lance crackers. Yes, seriously. Crap like that drives me flipping bonkers! WHO IS THIS PERSON???? AND WHY WON'T THEY JUST LEAVE ME ALONE?????

Sigh. Anyway, if you are struggling. I feel you. I'm with you. I'm constantly trying to rediscover myself....wish it weren't so challenging. But I guess anything worth having is worth doing, right?

Happy Tuesday to all.....ME

I'm with you. I've been in a funk and was starting to get back into the groove last week, now I've been taken down by a migraine. I'm goin on day 3, better today, but still have the lingering headache and dizziness. We can do this, we just need to jump back in and not look back. It's good that you have a goal set and feel that it's a healthy, realistic goal that you can stick with. We've had b-day cake at our house, so I get the binge eating, I'm there with you, too. We just need to break out of this funk and kick our own butts to get back into the routine. You'll have to let me know how TurboFire goes. I've been looking at buying it numerous times but have heard the moves are hard to learn, and I'm clumsy so don't know if I could do it. Good luck!! :)

I've done P90x (and totally loved it) several times. And I have Turbo Jam and I'm not the most coordinated person either...so it takes me a little bit to get the moves (and thank goodness no one but the dog is up with me when I try it!!) and I'm nearly certain I look totally goofy doing it. I enjoyed Turbo Jam, but am ready to hear different music. Now isn't that silly??? LOL. Hope the migraines leave you soon....
