ACT don't react

144, still, well actually my scale this morning said 139.5, but I can not believe that number for one second. Although I would love to know that I am 139.5! It would put me on par to where I want to be for my Nov mini goal of 140! Ok, well lets see my goal was for Nov 27th, Anyone think I can lose 4lbs in less than 2 weeks? Maybe if I work hard I actually can!

"A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually.
One must fight for a life of action, not reaction."

Ok, so this makes me go a little crazy inside. I feel like i have been on the path of reaction when it comes to my weight loss efforts and it is starting to get to me!

Case and point:
My mom bought my munchkin a hat from the circus but it came with cotton candy... last night I ate cotton candy. BAD BAD BAD!!!

But seriously I am having a reacting nature to everything. My daughter didn't finish something so I will eat it. BAD BAD BAD! I ate prob 250 Cal yesterday because of my reactions!

Another fatal reaction that I had was, I told myself I couldn't go for a walk cause my daughter needed to nap... WELL HELLO.. she could nap in the stroller while I walk! I must be losing my mind! I am going for a walk today, no matter what!

I must stop reacting and start acting! I want to meet my Nov goal! I have 4lbs to go and even if I say Dec 1, that is 2 weeks away! I can do this! I know I can, NO MORE REACTIONS! NO MORE EXCUSES! I am sick of being 144! I am sick of looking at the scale every week and seeing the same thing! Today when I saw the numbers 139.5, I kind of got excited, I really wanted to belive it. I couldn't help knowing that if I have been making the right choices I would be there already!

I also have to get my butt on here more, I have to blogg/logg everything I am doing. I have been a major slacker! I am not going to do that any more, just cause I fit into my cloths now doesn't mean I am where I ultimately want to be. I'm getting to comfortable! I need a structure to keep me in line! I have 9 more lbs to lose thats it! Its not a monster its not such an arduous task. (ok how come I can spell arduous right the first time but can't spell ultimately right??) I can make better choices

such as:
Go for a walk more than once a week!
throw out that cotton candy when I get home
Don't fall pray to my daughter's left overs
calcount.com people! uhhh so frustrating!
Drink more water( I have been doing great but some days I completely slack )
Take my vitamins!!! (I'm runnin low on e-mergen-c so I have been slacking on my calcium and b vitamins- Without them I know I can't function GET WITH IT CHUPSIE!!!!)
Work out! 3 times a week(Hubby is getting me EA Active 2, It has 30 new workouts added! we aren't going to get it till this weekend but it should be a motivator.)

I know I have been telling myself for weeks to work out, and every time I don't work out I make no progress! I have to do 4 workouts a week, either workout or go for a walk, Something! I mean even if its walking 4 days a week I have no problem with that. I would love to be outside, just thinking or not thinking at all, its peaceful and I know my daughter loves it too. Well anyway today I will be going for a walk and enjoying my walk! I will try to make it over an hour. Hubby is sick again, so being out of the house would be great for me and the munchkin....

I have a plan of action I will be acting today! tada! yea, maybe not that kind of acting but I will be active in what I do today, I will take a nice long walk, I will take extra care to log my cal and to steer clear of extras!



  1. I am so with ya! I am sick and tired of my reactions! I just blogged about it, and Sheila's post from yesterday (It matters) snapped me out of it. I think... Urrgg.

    I understand. And good luck!!!

  2. Hey! Love this post. I have a really good friend who always says that you can't control all of your circumstances, only your reaction to them. I can ALWAYS find a reason to NOT work up a sweat or to eat a big bowl of pasta at 8pm. Seriously. But one thing blogging has helped me with is to be more mindful of what I put in my mouth. Because food is to nourish, not to comfort/conspire/counsel/entertan/etc.

    And as far as the moving thing? Well, I'd rather lounge and be lazy and snuggle babies and my hubby ANY DAY. But I'm still trying.

    AND SO ARE YOU! So STEP AWAY FROM THE COTTON CANDY WITH YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR and put that baby in the stroller!!!
