Jump Rope

Tonight I did 100 jumps with my jump rope!  I had the day off and hadn't done any exercise since last Thursday.  I really felt like I needed to do something... anything!  Also, I've been really fighting urges to go off plan.  I need to get my head back in the game.  I need to get back in that place I was in the first few weeks.  The thing is, this is something I always do.  I start out great and then something happens and I fall.  This time will be different.  This time, I'm going to pick myself right back up.  I'm going to do everything in my power not to fail.  I would tattoo a reminder on the palm of my hand if it would help me!  I need to get to reading the Healthy Habits book that came with my first order.  I do like the book... even if the whole reading it and doing the companion guide makes me feel like I'm in school and I have homework.  I do get a lot out of the book. 

I've been really bummed lately.  One of my favorite possessions is missing.  My Kindle.  I got it for Christmas from my mom.  Last Saturday it was in my kitchen and Sunday night I went to get it and it was gone.  Jeremy and I looked everywhere for it!  It's been over a week and it hasn't surfaced.  I'm to the point where I think it had to have been stolen or something.  It makes me sick... really.  To make it worse, Jeremy and I went to the movies today and saw the Hunger Games movie (loved it!) ... I was currently in the third book.  I wish I could just go to bed and read my book tonight... but I can't.  I need to start praying to Saint Anthony.  St Anthony is the Patron Saint for lost articles.  It's just as important to me because I really liked it but also because it was a gift from my mom.  In the meantime I'm going to keep looking.

  1. That's a bummer about your kindle. I sure hope you find it. I hate losing things and something like that is hard... positive vibes coming your way!

    So... if you start straying in your thoughts, you ought to watch that video again you posted below "Stay on the bus". You already know where you'd be going if you get off now or keep making stops. It is SO much more worth it to stay on plan. It's so hard when we're in the moment and want to just eat something and treat ourselves. It's good to have something in mind as your treat when that happens. For me it's been my knox blox sugar free jello squares. I got into making all different kind of flavors and had them cut up into little blocks and took them everywhere. They'd last for hours without being refrigerated. And people started wanting to try my flavors & the kids love them too. Even today, I just pulled out two batches and got them all into my little snack baggies. The hubs and I really enjoy them as our treats.

    Maybe write down WHY you want to lose your weight and WHAT you want to do when you've lost it and POST it on your bathroom mirror. Read it EVERY DAY!

    You CAN do this. No one says that this time will be like all the other times. YOU are the one who says it will be different!! You are the one in control. And if you are a praying person... then use prayer EVERY DAY and ask for the strength every day to stick to your plan. Even sometimes every few hours I've prayed when I've needed to.

    You totally can do this. It's actually NOT HARD... it just takes you to be DETERMINED! Get that EYE OF THE TIGER. Don't let the dark side win! Whatever ruffles your feathers.... use that to get your riled up to PUSH THROUGH!

    Take care,
