Getting 'real' with my goals. Why do I insist I CAN over eat & exercise it off? Flash Mob America-

Saturday, April 16, 2016

I had a wonderful time, met many people & learned I LOVE to dance! It was VERY windy, about 30 MPH, but fun anyway! emoticon People turnout enough to break the Ginnis world record. 253, (the old record was 251). It was sponsored by Bio-Flex. They did a great job! We danced for about 3 hours. Mary Murphy was a true delight!

4-16-16 Today I am starting my deep cleaning of clutter in our home. Taking BABY steps so I will not get over whelmed. I have so MANY amazing things to release! Donate, sell & give to place that will enjoy them! I watch the show "Tiny Houses". The show inspires me to live a more simple life. I have also been dealing with the fact that I am gaining "clutter" on my body. 9# over. I just feel VERY uncomfortable at this higher weight. It IS about 3# over my average for the past year, AND I promised myself that I will make my goal weight whatever my average is for the year. BUT it is just too high for me. I eat amazing, energizing foods, 80% of the time, just too much, these days! My clothes are getting tight & a little uncomfortable. Since I started SP at size 22/24 I went down to 12/13. I'm about a 14 right now AND having to take a hard look at WHY, I do not want to stick to my food tracker. THAT is the problem, not the exercise. I get plenty of that! I CAN stay at goal when I am under EXTREAM stress, but that is NOT how I choose to live my life! I love to celebrate, almost ANYTHING. An extra bite, here & there is starting to not go away by Friday, my weight in day. I feel by writing this, sharing this, maybe it will help me with a wake up call! I want to, need to, have to, desire to, crave to, get back to goal & stay there, for the rest of my life, 1 moment at a time. IF you have any advise about this, please feel free to suggest it! I KNOW you may not be able to see the extra weight in my photos, that is because I KNOW how to camouflage it. I am a performer & can do that VERY easily! That will NOT be easy if I keep gaining weight! LOL! Also, my self confidence is VERY related to my weight. It is starting to slip.

Thanks for reading!

4-17-16 Today's message from me: emoticon I have been VERY focused these past 2 days about logging EVERY bite, eating less condensed foods emoticon & foods without salt, etc. & I am down 2#! emoticon I'm back on my way. I am going to keep this process as a streak. I have been tracking EVERYDAY since I started SP 3-16-12, BUT I guess my bites here & there REALLY make a HUGE difference. emoticon I hiked The Wetlands, today. Beautiful! I took yesterday 'off' from extreme 200 minutes of exercise. Just my usual, easy, walking, etc. (120 minutes) It felt like a total lazy day. emoticon Happy Sunday to all! emoticon

"EMPTY emoticon YOURSELF & LET THE UNIVERSE FILL YOU." emoticon Yogi tea Today I have been de-cluttering, finding more things to sell emoticon (I could take a year & just sell them, I have so many beautiful things to let go of!) & cleaning bathrooms.
