My favorite podcast is fat2fit radio. Now they have power tips. I like this show because it helps you get through the process of losing weight. It’s not an easy task. I have wanted to give up many times. It was their idea to blog. The homework this week ” Come up with a list of 5 things, that you could be in control of ,if you really wanted to, that will affect your weight and fitness level. 5 things that I am in control of mmm? I think the number 1 thing is the choices I make about eating. I bring my lunch to work. I was eating Quiznos or something equally horrible. This also takes the stress off of “what will I have for lunch”. Number 2 what goes into my mouth. Work again. People are always trying to feed me. You think because I work for a health organization it would be easy but no. We get rewarded with Cold Stone,Jamba Juice or Pizza. I just have to say no! Number 3 working out is up to me. I am in control of that. No one else can work out for me. I have to make the time. Number 4 stress. I can’t eliminate stress but I can help control how I react to it. Eating is not the answer. Number 5 relaxation. I have leaned to say no to extra activity and things that cause stress in my life. What 5 things are you in control of? Do your home work it helps.

This is all new to me! I never thought of really doing a blog until my friend stared his. I still didn’t do it until Jeff on Fat2fitradio.com assigned it as homework. I’ve found lots of info and other bloggers like me in the past month. I had know idea it was such a big thing that they even have a conference. I saw on a DailyBurn facebook post Fitbloggin’11. It’s in Baltimore this weekend. If I only knew earlier it would have ben fun to go too. Some people even do this and quit there day jobs. I’m not doing this for that reason but one day who knows. Well I missed the conference but I’m going to check out some intresting blogs. I’ll have to check out yumyucky.com and fatgirlscanrun.com. I like the personal blogs better than the big community forums. Fitbloggin’12 I’m there! Wait! I’m missing Blogher food too! It’s in Atlanta this weekend. Omg, I’ve been under a rock or just a really busy working mom:)
I look at the needle on the scale. Did it really go up?! My other favorite is why isn’t it moving. I hear people talk about losing 10 lbs in a month. How do you do that? I have to remember I’m in it for the long run. I’m not on a fad diet. I’m not just trying to get the needle to go down. At first I planned on just eating healthy and to worry about exercise and doing weights after I lost weight. I thought of going on a fad diet because this process is just to long. I realize those are mistakes of the past. I have to do weights and exercise because I really like doing it and it makes me eat better. I don’t do all that hard work to blow it on a bag of chips. It’s not worth it. Ok I feel better now. Maybe this blog thing will help. The way I have to think about it is its frustrated over the needle on the scale or angry over the needle I will have to use with diabetes if I don’t lose weight. I’ll chose the latter anytime;)
