planning for the week

I like routine
same coffee in the morning, same breakfast 
it's just easy and I don't have to think to much 
and shakes same ole same ole 
frozen yogurt same ole 
the only thing I need to change daily is 

stop mindless eating 
my big meal 

and seeing how I have tuna for days 
I think I don't have to think next week 
also a cleanse day 
and my week is planned 

I am feeling focused 
pretty sure I got my groove back 
yep, me and Stella 
later taters!

the best laid plans

so I planned my whole week 
I packed food for it 
I was prepared for the battle 
and then things started to slide yesterday 
and I quickly realized I had a choice on how to handle this 
fall victim to my stress and emotions and throw away my efforts 
I wasn't the "perfect" picture 
but I got through yesterday at a maintainer status 
2044 calories 
weight was 162.4 yesterday 
Yesterday I got into a size 8 work pants and 
they were NOT skin tight 
comfy, just right 
I got this people 
let's ALL go out there and have a coolio day

Saturday morning thoughts

tried a cleanse yesterday 
meh....  made it until 6:30 so it's all good 
and I felt amazing this morning!!! 
 I used to breeze through a cleanse 
2 days no problemo... 
not so much now 
but I gave it a go and made it 24 hours so I am good with dat 
today will be 6 days in a row in the gym 

yep I am a maniac!!! 
for you millennials this is an 80's song  
today is going to busy 
workout, an open house, lunch with a pal, and church tonight 
don't let the weekend derail the week's progress! 
lots of stress and anxiety this last week 
but I am coping... 
only one slip up 
gotta keep plugging along

Lessons of life

By Ralph Marston
Take no satisfaction in the failure of others. Learn from it.
Harbor no resentment at the success of others. Learn from it.
Learn from what works, from what doesn't work. Learn from sparkling new ventures and grand old stories.
Learn from the pain, and from the pleasure too. Learn from what amazes you, what repulses you, what drains you, what energizes you.
Learn by challenging what you know. Learn by admitting what you don't know.
Life's lessons contain some of its greatest value. Seize every opportunity to learn, and claim that value for your own.
I think maybe sometimes I do harbor resentments... I would like to say I am this perfect person that doesn't but I do ... why does it seem so easy for you? but I struggle my butt off and obtain maybe a quarter of what you can? GRRRR 
I need to keep myself open to what works.. I have learned from the pain... boy oh boy yeah, some lumps I have taken and seriously I am the one usually inflicting them upon myself 
What drains me, what energizes me, challenges me 
yes there is SO much I don't know 
and I get mad when I can't figure things out, and you don't explain them so I get it, then I feel dumb and isolate 
man you see how it is so noisy inside this crazy mind of mine!!! 
The seizing every opportunity to learn part I am slow at. This is where I need to do some work. I feel such feelings of inadequacy and like I can't learn what you do, how you do it, how you make it work... that I pretend it has no value... not because it does, but because I am afraid 
yikes this may be a little too raw and real!!! 
oh well this is me

Not every day is a winner

I have always heard that it's all about your mindset 
you have to have the right attitude
 we all have seen all these attitude sayings 
but maybe it isn't so much my attitude but my self image 

one week... ONE WEEK ago... like 7 days 
I felt like ginormous, huge, a land whale 
then yesterday I popped into a clothes store and tried on jeans
I am in a 12-10 
I can't seem to give up my comfy size 14 jeans that fall off my arse 
I look schlumpy 
is that a word? 
schlumpy? it is in my world 
so I try on size 10's too big 
shirt size large too big 
I get mad and leave the store 
girl you are so dumb! 
okay time to go back to the super bowl post 
just do your job 
trust the process
ignore the score 
worry about the next play 

I think I was mad cause I am struggling to get into the 150's 
and a size 10 is 150 weight range for me 
stupid vanity sizing ... that's why I don't shop at Old Navy 
this is a stupid post 
oh well every day can't be a winner

slippery slope

I read an Instagram post the other day 
and it just made me think about the slippery slope 
 basically if I am not careful I will fall flat on my backside 
and I see people/friends/family all the time walking this slippery slope 
easy for me to see YOU.... harder for me to see me
I know I need to keep my eye's on myself 
booze.... nope I don't go there 
I need to take this same philosophy with junk food 
just plain ole NO 
 that was me yesterday 
not going to let the stress and daily life derail me 
get over yourself Karla 
this is life 
deal with it 
so I just got busy ... got out of my head and lost myself in the days events 
this morning my food is packed and tracked (I use My Fitness pal
I will be in the gym this morning at 4:45 
It's going to be a good day bloggity folks
