So how’s it going?

I’ve been blog hopping from place to place the past couple of days, just looking around, learning about things, seeing what others have been up too, just putzing around. There are hundreds, thousands of people dieting, having life style changes, trying to improve their lives. Some are so sad, so unhappy, so feeling terrible. Others are upbeat, happy, easy to read. Have you ever just blog hopped around to read? It is just amazing this blogging.

Today I was visited by a weird person. A fairly nasty person according to some of the comments he’s gotten. He calls himself Crap Blog Detective. Enough said but want to meet someone mean, read my comments and go see.

As for my life style change, well I’m not changing to quickly. I’m suppose to be but it’s slow. But since I do look at everything in a different light I think it’s working. Before I eat those chips I think these aren’t good for me. Before I eat that Hersey’s Kiss I think I better eat just one. When I take my walk and only walk 2 miles instead of 4 I know this is not what’s suppose to be happening. When it’s nap time and I’m suppose to be doing my exercise and I’m playing on the Wii instead of working out I know this is not how to lose weight. So the thoughts are there, but the actions are on strike. Is it because as soon as school starts I know my workouts and eating habit are going to go back to the way it was before summer vacation? Or hoping they will? Is it because I made the under 200 mark and think it’s enough? That better not be it. I don’t know I just know that I didn’t stand on the scale yesterday because I know that it’s not going to be nice because I haven’t been. I’m not willing to fail but right now not strong enough.

Now before anyone gets all excited and thinking I’m giving up, nope not going to happen. Before anyone things I’m down on myself, nope that’s not it either. Before anyone thinks I need a kick in the butt….well maybe that’s it.

I am going to take a break here, until school starts back up. Not a long break, school starts September 9th. I know, this makes like 3 breaks since I started my new life in January. I promise it’s not a break that means I’ll be eating everything I shouldn’t be. It doesn’t mean I won’t keep exercising. It doesn’t mean I quit. I won’t do that to me or to you guys. NEVER EVER!!! I’m just going to take some time to collect my thoughts, get my butt back into gear.

So please don’t fret, I’m good, I will be good and keep working on my goals. See you September 10th, bright and early. Oh I might sneak in here and chatter but not positive.

Good luck to you my friends. I am so proud of everyone dieting, changing their life styles, becoming healthier, happier and oh so sexy. 

Have a great Labor day weekend. We are going camping. I’m so excited. So ready for family time, just the three of us. Hiking, fishing, swimming, reading, relaxing and just plain together time.

People can only hurt you if you LET them hurt you. I wasn't even going to click on his blog. He probably gets a lot of page views and hits just from people checking him out and I don't want to even dignify that.

Don't be so hard on yourself. I have taken a life break for months now. Yes, I've gained some weight back, but not all of it...and I don't plan to quit either.
I am cheering you (and myself) on to get back on track and motivated to end our year well! WE can do it. I feel new strength surging in and I know I'll be able to get on top of this eating well/exercising thing again soon.

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that you are not the first nor the last person to take a life change break! We all need it to maintain sanity! I'm going to follow your blog because you seem to have a lot to share :)

I did a guest blog on Angie's blog (here's my post: http://angieshealthylivingblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/watch-my-weight-wednesday-meet-kitty.html), and I can come right from experience of my own life change and assisting others with theirs, if you don't take a break when your brain says you need it, you will fall, hard, off the band wagon. And that just adds to the frustration and of course you will want to give up!

So congratulations on taking the breather you feel you need! Good luck, and I will be back to visit! Also I am back on my journey as well, if you would like to follow along with my crazy notion that someone who where's a size 2X shirt can do the insanity video's please stop by :)

We all need a break, Take care and I will see you soon!
