Chain Reaction doesn’t always have to be what you expected it to be. So this morning I was off to a great start, got up to my 5am alarm not too fatigued given I went to bed later than usual and didn’t sleep so well. Had my bags packed. gym, lunch, purse, laptop. CHECK!Packed and by the door… So things were going well> few mins earlier than usual (goal is to get to the fitness center by 645, 650 latest and be in the shower by 730).. So all’s good right, and im backing out of the garage queu
Easy to take for granted how much we have to be grateful for. This morning it dawned on me, that while I ***** and moan and whine about my commute it is the ONE thing I can attribute to bringing me CLOSER to fitness. For that I am thankful.. The rest is all a work in progress but maybe this was my sign or just the "forced hand" I needed to save myself. There are tons of things I'm unhappy with in life right now, but as I make the list of things I can or should be happy with and about I can't hel
A wise person once said (and I think Im wise, so I am repeating it :" The way you see yourself is a self -fulfilling prophecy." As frequent dieters ( I use the term loosely), some of us have a way of seeing ourselves as what we were ... not who we are becoming or even who we are.. If we are here, we are people who acknowledge there are improvements we can or should make in our lives as early as NOW.We are people who have at some point abused food or misabused our bodies by lack of nutritious f
Last week my husband and I were having a casual discussion which lead to him saying I dont seem as affectionate as I once was... Like I pull away when he reaches for me, I roll my eyes when he compliments me.. u know that sort of thing. FinallyI had to tell him what was wrong " Im disgusted with myself". I am not comfortable in my own skin and hardly want to be looked at let alone touched by another person. It was hard to say and I saw the pain in his eyes that not only did I think that about my
Sometimes one of the worst things that could happen is when you get off program here and there and the scale doenst report it... You think you've gotten away with something and then it creeps up on you one shot -- BUSTED! now ur going over your weekly diary tryingto identify what specifically did it - but you're in too deep. What do you do? Get the **** back on program like you mean it. Get back to your week one committment. What ever you do--- don't jump on the runaway train. it's just one week
After my first week's consultation the first thing I said to my JCC was OMG I forgot just how much I miss the food. My first breakfast was the Cinnamon Rolls - how the **** could I have quit JC knowing how much I ENJOYED cinnabon and these taste JUST like it. Im not an egg lover so it limits most of my breakfast selection, but that's ok with me bc I LOVE the french toast and the cinnamon rolls and make those my weekend (or mid week) treats. The rest of the week I eat cereal - I like a quick bre
Ok... so I just celebrated my 34th birthday on Saturday and in to my 2nd week of JC (for the third time)... Iniitially I was embarassed about rejoining but realized 1) my mom invested in an lifetime membership for me back in 2004 and 2) If you compare it to the number of times I re-joined WeightWatchers in 18 years I'm practically a JC Virgin!
In all fairness, I tried rejoining back in December of 2011 and my mind just wasn't there. I rejoined again about a week before my birthday and 15 # heav
Heard this on Friday afternoon (when I rejoined Jenny) and every day since Ive repeated it to myself a few times a day ... PROGRESSION... NOT PERFECTION
It felt profound hearing it but it makes so much sense. It's applicable to anything in your life - weight loss, transitioning in a new job, spiritual walk... the list goes on and on.
I'll touch on Weightloss for now... So we are all (mostly) here to improve our lifestyle. Whether it's more exercise, or less calories we have something we are
