thats all i know to do

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Another good walk this morning.
Was up and down to the track beginning my walk at 7am. Still worked up a good sweat and felt really good.
I am knocking on wood that the streak continues, that my foot holds up and that I can keep my head in the game.
Have been watching the calorie intake well, still having the same old problem, getting the amount of vitamin d, iron, fiber and calcium in food that I eat, while also staying within calories.
I guess that is why this thing of ours isnt easy, this weight loss, getting healthy and fit, living a good clean lifestyle.
If it were easy probably none of us would be here every day.

I just know that every single day for me is a struggle.
I repeat the mantras that keep me from reaching for a cookie instead of an orange.
I repeat the words I say to myself when my clothes dont fit and how I cant really afford to buy clothes right now, I need to be wearing the ones I already have.
I keep telling msyelf to keep fighting and dont give up, even in the face of watching others have success, losing weight and getting into smaller sizes, while I am stuck, have been mired down in this never giving quicksand for 2 years now.
Honestly, when I see friends on FB post their apps about how far they ran or walked, or talk about how they worked out, I truly am happy.
I do like seeing that there are so many who are out there working hard and trying to get in shape.
I do the same thing, but its been a long time since I have been able to post any weight loss updates, or do before and after pics.

I just keep repeating.
I keep walking.
I keep trying.

    There was one phrase that I had to read twice to understand what you meant: "I do the same thing..." I know you were talking about doing the same things as others are doing in terms of fitness activities. When I first read it, my interpretation was "I do the same thing I always have done." If that is the case, then you need to change it up!

    I joined the Plateau Busting Challenge this month, and it has a lot of good tips for reminding us what to do when the scale stops moving. Two years is a long time to be stuck. You are here, so I know you want to keep on your journey and continue to make changes. I want to help! But first, how about you really think about what you're currently doing, and what you could do differently to release the logjam. Are you really being honest with yourself about what you eat and how you exercise?

    I know you can do this. You've had some setbacks, but it sounds like at least some of those are gone now. Let's crank this up to a new level!

    You got the right idea, just keep going, keep pushing, keep trying and don't give up. You will see results, just one step at a time.

    May you have many more days like this, Val! It is a struggle, but you're doing it. Feeling healthy and sweating and using your body is the best feeling. You are living life and feeling the good kind of energy. Keep it up!

    I haven't had big loss yet either, and some days I get really discouraged too. But the changes I've made have made me healthier, and I bet the same is true for you too. Hang in there, and I will too. :)
