Hard Work and Dedication is Key!

I can do this!

I can do this!

Every morning I wake up with the same mantra… I can do this!

2017 has been difficult and I haven’t always given my best. During the year I lost my motivation and forgot what it was to be me. I witnessed a friend struggle with an eating disorder and finally omit that he had an issue. I struggled with over eating and stress but I’m finally on the path to make it right.

I’ve set little goals for myself and I’m close to hitting my first one. It’s not easy and everyday I want to quit but I know I’ll be better in the long run.  

I can do this!

Week 26… Good Days and Bad Days!

It’s been quite a journey so far. I believe that I’m finally on the right path but I’m not sure. 

I’m trying. I really am. I feel like I’ve been down this road before. I start making progress and then I slip. I rebound for a week and then slip up again. 

When will this cycle end?

I am going to yoga regularly. I am enjoying it. It’s good to have something to focus on. 

I might try some other classes to mix it up. 

Time will tell….
Have a great week.

Week 24… 6 months in! Motivation is back!

I know last week I was complaining about not being able to find my motivation but I think I found out after I had a solid workout for once.

This past week I went to the gym on Monday…Tuesday…Wednesday…Friday and Sunday. The past 4 previous workout sessions during the week were just boring and plain. I seemed to just be going through the motions. Sunday’s workout was different.

I went to the gym on Sunday after watching football. I really had a good session. I felt great doing it and then strong after i finished. I remembered how well it felt to push myself hard. Really got a great sweat going. That is what i needed to get my motor running again.

I can’t believe it took me this long to get back on track. I know that my skin cancer sidelined me for a few weeks, but I’m a survivor so upward and onward I go.

I already have started planning how I’m going to attack this week and plan on seeing a difference on the scale this upcoming Saturday. I can’t wait!

How are you going to make a difference this week?
Have a great night!

Week 23… Where’s my Motivation?

I had a minor loss last week of only .2lbs. I just can’t seem to get my motivation back. I know that I want to get back at it and yet I can’t. 

I keep drinking soda. I’m back to at least 2 a day. I need to seriously leave my wallet in the car and force myself to not buy anything. I don’t know why I slipped. It took me originally 5 weeks to give it up last time. I hope it doesn’t take that long this time. 

I know just getting back to a normal routine will help with that. Strides was this past weekend and it was rough but I made it through. Now is the best time to get back to weight management and focus back on my goal. 

I’m going to start with having a small goal of losing 5lbs. Once I start working out, I will then start pushing myself harder to get the weight off. I originally wanted to lose 50lbs by the end of the year, since I did lose 30 this summer I’m going to have to work harder to get the gained weight off along with hitting my goal. 

I’m up at least 14lbs over the past 5 weeks. I’m done feeling sorry for myself. My nose is healing quite well so I can’t feel bad about it anymore. It’s time to focus!!!

I can do this!

Have a great week

Week 22… I’m on the mend still

Hey there everyone! I wanted to let you know that I’m still on the mend from my surgery. I’m finally starting to feel better and next week I’m going to start working out again. 

I’m taking this week off even though I am doing a 5k on Saturday and then a breast cancer walk on Sunday. 

Let’s hope that next week is better. 

Have a great week

Week 20… Not doing my best… But I’m getting better!

So for the past couple of weeks I have been dealing with something that I didn’t want to really want to tell anyone. It has been affecting me quite a lot even though it shouldn’t have. 

The issue has been plaguing me for the last couple of weeks. I lost my motivation and the struggle to move some days. I didn’t want to workout. I just wanted to come home and do nothing. 

I had a sore on my nose that didn’t want to heal. It was there for quite awhile. I was scared to face the reality of what it could be. I knew in my mind what it was but didn’t want to hear the words. Finally I made an appointment with a dermatologist. She confirmed my fears. 

It was cancerous. We did a biopsy and discovered that it was a simple basal cell cancer. This is the best case scenario that I could have hoped for. It isn’t malanoma so that’s a relief. Next Tuesday I’ll have the cell removed from my nose. 

I already started going back to the gym since I now have a sense of relief. 

I’ll keep you posted on how I do for the rest of the week. 

Have a great week.
