Rockstar

Ya, I am struggling. To stay positive, to be encouraging, to be who I want to be.

Life happens. I want to snack, have wine, not exercise-stuff, that isn’t positive or encouraging. But reality.

I struggle. Struggle with the day to day, routine crap that can tie you down and sink you in a second.

So, in bed by 9pm and taking all I can to get me through the day.

Today is new. Beginning again. Every day is a new day.

Blessings.

Crown

I am beginning a Couch to 5K program this morning. I am certain this will kill me. The old me.

I am excited for the future with this program, and the paths it will open for me.

I am not a runner. Never have been. But I want to get back in the habit of exercising. I know that my body isn’t going to like it at first…maybe never…but it will be good for my mind, body and soul.

What things do you do to stay in the healthy mindset? How are your New Year goals going this January?

Blessings!

Perfection

I have to remind myself that I don’t have to be perfect at everything.

I don’t know about you, but I am a perfectionist at heart. So this is hard for me, but I have to let go of some things.

Are you putting energy and effort where you really don’t need to?

Blessings!

Knees

So after a 115 pound weight loss:

Apparently per my rheumatologist I am no longer bone on bone with my knees!  I am to take it easy with exercise, and to build up the muscle around my knees, but for the most part, I can start doing things I want to do as long as my body allows it.

Dancing, yoga, jogging—really anything I want to try.

2 Years ago yesterday…was my gastric sleeve surgery and while I am not at my lowest weight I am no where near my heaviest! I have had some regain but no guilt. I am so very grateful for my path here.

So…blessings today and always!

Bariatric Surgery Update

Today I had my 1 year and 10 month check up.  I shouldn’t be here today, but since I have had regain (13 pounds), they want to have a tighter check on me.

I know what is causing my regain, and for me not to lose…is wine and not exercising.  I need to cut back on the wine, and walk everyday (or at least 5 times a week).  These are two separate things of course.img_2818But I have to remind myself of where I have come from…and this is not the end.  2017-04-13 11.43.37Not happy with where I am at…but so happy from I was.  Will update later next week on my appointment and the path I will be headed.

Blessings.
