Well, here we are 2018. Wow, 2018. New year new chance to make good. New year new plan to improve. New year new challenges. New year new perspective and outlook on things. New year....well all new. We have 363 days left to have a Do-Over. All those days to make sure we are the best we can be for that one day. Make that each new day good, even if it's a bad day. Make at least one good choice each day, even if the one good choice is the only one out of 50 horrible choices that day. Make sure to recognize that each day has good in it, you just have to see it. Stop, breathe, gaze, listen, embrace , absorb, engage that one moment in the chaos that is our lives that defines the good of the day. Revel in it, roll in it, coat yourself with it. If you do this, then no matter what bad choices are made, no matter what ick is tossed on you, no matter what you feel you did not accomplish, no matter what is overwhelming you this day will not win. And that one good choice amongst all the bad, this good choice will define you for that day; and give strength to make another good choice the next new day. And the next. And the next...till one day with out even knowing you'll realize that today you made more than one good choice. And be amazed at you're strength.

I'm still here! Suppose for this to work actually need to track what is eaten...hmmmmm.... And break my addiction to Coffee Nips (argh!!) And drink water, okay more water than has been done. And of course stay off that dang couch...but so nice out on the sun porch.

So last week started doing the Lazy River Walk at the local water park. Three days a week after the part closes they open for an hour and you walk as far as you can in the Lazy River. Once around w/the current and once around against the current. Sad part is that is closes Aug 17th...but still helping my legs get stronger.

So today reloaded My Fitness Pal to my phone to start to log my food. I think logging my food is my least favorite of the things I have to do. The scan app does make it better...but ugh. If I can keep doing this then it's a victory in itself!

So today my Coffee Nip limit is 5. Going to be so hard!!!

So today after work only 30min to unwind then get up and do chores. Keep moving and moving. No getting sucked up into surfing or TV.

And maybe today I'll get in a lot more steps drinking more water! Some may even be a quick jog if I'm out in the back of the yard and all of a sudden have to go!!

Still here!

If you keep coming back, you've not given up right? I'm trying to get back. I realized that to have the life I want I need to actually get up and go get it. You can be uncomfortable and sore just sit'n or you can be uncomfortable and sore from doing something; the latter seemed like the better option. So here we are again, my image of the life I want and I. It is right there, just have to put in the effort to get it; right? Put in the effort, such a statement of action and purpose. As I feel my body slipping into a stale state of bla, weakness, issues, and not feeling attractive these are the feelings that I need to use as motivation to move forward off the stagnant state I have been in. To move and sweat and ache from a good work out, and want to do it again the next day. I used to be that person, worked out hard 5-6 days a week. And no I was not smaller, just in such amazing shape and getting smaller. Where did she go? Why is she fighting coming back? She was the one on track to the live the vision in my head. This full active life of hiking, canoeing, sailing, working out, going for long walks, not wasting time doing nothing, without constant pain in my feet and legs. This is the person I need to be again....Her. Big beautiful Her, willing to put in the effort it is going to take to step into, no wait take the good life I have now and make it into the amazing life I want(and deserve). She must be starting to fight her way back to the top if I'm writing this, so keep fighting!! Keep pushing at my subconscious to make me want to do the effort. I need you back my Her....fight!!!!!

10 October 2016

Hello, I guess I'm back. Yep, time to get back on that wagon, back on track, back to it, time to start kicking ass, time to wrangle in the body parts that have been running wild, and time to start moving in the right direction. Whewwwwwww......just after all that I am already tired!!

Started walking the dogs(aka:the boys) again, we do at least 3 miles a day. Then I got my boxing gym membership reinstated, and yes I am scared, but signed up for my first two classes this week. So many parts are again jiggling that I will truly feel like a boxing virgin all over again. Wonder if I can even still do one push up?? I was up to 30! Dang it.

After a year off for self pity wallowing it's time to get the parts back where they belong and everything pointing I the right direction. Time to sweat out all the crap that's accumulated not really sweating. The stress, the ick, the bad moods, the sadness, the bad sleeping, the headaches, and the tiredness.

So here we go!
Walking the boys. Check
Signed up for boxing. Check
Ready to sweat (and possibly throw up) Check.
Ready to eat better at dinner. Check
Ready to feel sexy and firm again. Check.

Let's hit it my peeps........let's get this party started!!!
