Monday



I feel icky today. Not so much because my allergies are still kicking my butt, but because I just lack energy. I am fighting the "I don't care if I lose weight or not" mentality right now. Which can be draining in itself. I have a workout planned for 10 a.m. and I am hoping that it will get me back in the game. At least give me some more energy. Because we worked outside all weekend, I neglected the inside chores.. which means my house is a disaster. I have a million loads of laundry to get done and all the floors need to be mopped and vacuumed, the kitchen needs cleaning and the girls bedroom needs picked up again... ha, doesn't sound like so much when you right it down like that. I'm hoping it will all get done after my workout...

I am still excited for my job interview. A little nervous too. I've been out of the work field for 4 years and am trying to remember all the ins and outs of interviewing. I think it will be good for me to do something that gets me out of the house and on my own for awhile... even if it does mean losing sleep two nights a week. I will just have to manage my time better... especially since I am also doing my nursing degree classes. ACH... am I crazy or what?

So, today I need to watch my carb intake.. my portion sizes.. and my water intake. I have a 1 hour Tae Bo Extreme workout this morning.. and weight lifting tonight with hubby. A ton of house cleaning and some errands to run... so... I guess I should peel myself off the computer chair and get my butt moving!

Have a Blessed Day... and thanks for all the support!

Hmm, I understand that weight-loss mentality entirely. I just told myself last night that I need to either commit to losing weight or just forget the entire process completley. That way I'm happy with my decision and I'm not constantly fighting myself. It's exhausting to be "trying" to lose weight and constantly let yourself down over and over. You're on the right track Tigerlilly, you'll get there!

Take care,
PSG

p.s. I'm really hoping that you get that job, it sounds perfect for you!

Good luck with the interview. It sounds like it would be perfect! Let us know how it goes. And if you dont get it, well then it just wasnt meant to be right now.

I too am fighting the I dont care if I'm fat forever mentality! Its so annoying because I DO CARE! Oh well, we need to somehow get past it, so if you have any tips please do pass them along :)

Sis, don't give up all that you've accomplished so far - keep your head down, fight the unmotivation, and do what you know is going to make you feel better a day, a month, a year from now! :)

I'll keep my fingers crossed for the job interview - they're going to LOVE you!

I know how you feel... sometimes it's easier to just "be" rather than stay focused. But I know you're a strong woman. You can do it!

Since you are a morning poster, I am assuming that by the time you read this, it's the day after you posted this, and that you are "back in the game".

Remember, the question isn't just "do I care if I lose weight or stay the same" because sometimes we need to make the changes just so we can stay the same and stop a gain. Trust me, you don't want to get where I am!

You are doing wonderful with your sustainable changes. And one bad day is simply that, one bad day.
