Day 14 of 100 Days of Exercise

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Made a blog yesterday, hit a wrong button and it all deleted, so no blog yesterday!

I am SO tired these last few days! I didn't work out yesterday and didn't plan on it today until I saw this:

That lame old excuse, which is basically what I'm doing with working out. Yeah. Can't do that. I have my elliptical all cleared of boxes and junk, even if I just get 10 minutes, I'll be happy!

I feel really depressed, not as depressed as I used to get, but pretty low. I don't like feeling like this. I must get feeling better! And I know that eating healthy and working out can help with that. So what am I doing!

emoticon I may have to give up coffee. We went to Sam's Club yesterday and this guy was showing these wrist blood pressure machines, 1/2 off. So I let him take my BP and whoa! 162/96!! And that is with taking a BP medicine! Needless to say we bought the BP machine, I'm supposed to take my BP at home, but don't have a machine, so now I do. It is better this morning, but still high.

emoticon DH ordered Pizza yesterday. I always feel like my food plan is ruined when this happens because it is so greasy and used to be my 'diet was ruined' whenever pizza came up. I'm trying to get out of that mentality. Just because I had pizza one night does not mean my whole food lifestyle is thrown off. I can have pizza. Just in moderation, just like I did. Plus it was veggie pizza (as always) so it was not as bad as if it were triple pepperoni! Back on track, I can do this!

emoticon My juicer broke. Just stopped working. I'm so sad, I just bought a bunch of kale to juice. So we are going to get one of the really nice ones if we get another one, but they are expensive! $250 bucks for some juice! For now I'm going to just stick with the Juice Plus and take my supplements. DH wants me making smoothies since I don't have my juice because both help.

emoticon I've only been working out every other day, and I've not been logging it in SP. Makes me feel bad because I'm supposed to be on 100 Days of Exercise so I should be working out every day!!! I'm tempted to start over, but I'll keep going and just do better from now on!

    You've got this. One foot in front of the other, one step at a time. Remember we all cross the "finish" line sooner or later. Of course we all pray its later. emoticon
    Praise the Lord O my soul, and all that is within me praise His holy name!

    It will be easy for me to say JUST DO IT! I suffer from depression, anxiety and other issues.When we are down, it is difficult to pull ourselves up. However, I do know that exercise gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Even though I may not see the scale moving in the right direction, right away, I know that I am doing something positive for me.

    I am rooting for you! emoticon

    Changing behaviors is huge feat. You can do this though. We are all stronger than we realize. The tide will turn. It always does. Focus on the positives. And yes, don't give up. Choose what strengthens and brings life to your body.

    Wow you are ready for a bit of encouragement. Sounds like me a couple of weeks ago. I felt like I was on the slippery slope back to old fat me. I was really down but the Spark Family cheered me on and didn't criticize my sorry state. The gave me the cheers I needed to get back on track This week I have made a big lung forward exercising everyday and eating healthy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Just saying I know you can to it too. I make smoothies can use chicken or vegetable broth I use organic and put the kale in it I also use carrots ginger garlic tomatoes and onions in my smoothies. Depends on how strong your blender is. Otherwise just use broth and kale. I'm cheering for you emoticon Blessings, Marsha
