So The Real Challenge Begins!

I tried to keep the motivation at an all time high. Nothing worked. So I put on an exercise tape that I have not used since the 80's. What the (insert F word here) was I thinking? My body is screaming at me and my stomach is so sore. After 4 kids and collapsed stomach muscles, it is not feeling the best. Through the whole horrific ordeal I could hear noises. I stopped several times to try and hear closely to what appeared to be some kind of clapping noise. Each time I began to torture myself through jumping on the spot again, the noise returned. What the? It cannot be? But sure as shit it was my stomach slapping against my upper thighs. I stopped, I did not know whether to laugh or cry. I was in disbelief. Had I honestly believed that I had not let myself get this obese! Well I had and it was a wake up call.

My back is sore, my legs are sore and right at this moment I feel like vodooing Cher's arse! (the video was a Cher fitness tape)

Where have I gone? Where did all that fat come from? Did some alien land and pump someone elses liposuction remnants into my stomach, thighs and butt while I slept soundly? Well thank you!!!! You could have thrown some into the breast area too you know!

I have spent much of the day trying to find me. Avoiding mirrors from the waist down at any cost has obviously been my downfall.

So the mirror has revealed all. Not only have I aged 20 years but I have gained 30 kilos. What a challenge this will be.

I think I need to seek out similar people on this journey to get some tips and tricks, off to blogland we go!

Another Day

Today… It’s a cold and miserable day! Rain, rain go away! How I miss the sunshine!

My thoughts… I am not feeling the motivation I did yesterday. Boredom has set in and I trying to keep myself busy. I am trying to get into a good mindset to remain positive and motivated. I am also trying new products for my face and skin. I have let myself go in so many ways. I am also missing my friends. Our move, due to my hubby's employment, has been hard on us all. My kids are still finding it hard to settle in here and I feel so bad for them. We all had to leave behind dear friends and we are all trying to make new friendships but it is so hard.

Highlights Of The Week… I had my son down for a visit. It had been a few months since I had last saw him. I miss him incredibly. He was home for 3 days which was fantastic.

I Am

(Being able to feel deeply, so intensly, is sometimes a curse. There are times it shatters me into thousands of tiny diamond formed pieces. )

I am...

...changing. Each moment is magnified and filling my inner being.

...moving on. Days of confusion, bad memories that stain my soul and age old walls slowly fade.

...dreaming. Of warm ocean breezes, white sandy beaches, a hot summer sky where shades of pink and deep purple embrace the sand. Where the aroma of frangipanis arouse the senses.

...learning. To stay afloat when the cold despair of fear once again begins to drown me into my own darkest depths. To succeed with knowledge and hope. To believe in tomorrow when today seems unreachable and yesterday seems unfair.

...beautiful. Sometimes foolish, a necessary evil, believe's in magic, always loses when holds back, never on time, an experience to the senses, a journey and a moment in time, no longer a reflection of life's regrets.

Here I Go Again

So I am back again. I opened up blogger with a new zest, all prepared to write down what I have planned for myself to help me lose weight. It then dawned on me. I have spent almost all of my adult (and teen) life obsessed with my weight.

I have never been happy with how I look, even when I did look good. I know that almost all of my weight problems are born from my emotional and mental being. I have always been an emotional eater and as I have aged, I (mentally) believe there is no hope for me as I have damaged myself through yo-yo dieting.

I took a long hard look in the mirror today and feel blah! After 4 kids my body has become an indescribable shape, my skin is sagging (everywhere) and I have aged at least 20 years in the face. I had let myself go, so badly in fact that I do not recognise myself anymore. The zest that I once had has fizzled and the smile that reached from ear to ear is now down turned. I look old, I feel old.

Having said this, I do love who I am as a person. I have many fantastic qualities but my outer exterior is my biggest challenge, along with the emotional roller coaster that I continually throw myself on.

I am now challenging myself to work on my mind, body and spirit. To take better care of myself and regain back some of that amazing zest for life. Today is the first day of the rest of my life!
