Cubicle to Fit-ish

How a wimp becomes fit(ish)

Fire Up Into Fall #5: Monday, Monday…

What have you done this week to achieve your goals?

  •  Get my eating under control: I concentrated on portion size and was able to identify some triggers (large cereal bowls, too much bread in the house, not enough REAL food in the house, etc.).
  • Find 2 days for cardio every week: Still haven’t found them, but I want to start C25K again and found a treadmill plan that should work for me.  I hope to go try it out Wednesday and Sunday this week.
  • Eat dinner at the table 2 times a week: Oh, the table.  Still half a mess.
  • Do not sit in front of the tv on Mondays and Wednesdays until 7PM: I’ve been totally blowing by this.  I was so busy last week, I don’t even know if I watched tv until late…
  • Get on a better sleep schedule: I am much more cognizant of when I am going to bed – however, I still choose to watch CSI with Ted Danson on Wednesdays, because how could I miss that!?!?  Haha!
  • Track my progress: Another sporadic one.  I tracked my food for a few days last week, which was super helpful but still made me feel like every choice had the weight of the world on it.  Is it bad that I just want my food choices to be easier?

 What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?

I am totally wearing a skirt today that I haven’t worn for 3 years.  I try it on every few months, but I can’t believe that I am actually wearing it.

Its half way through the challenge, you can change 1 or more of your goals (max of 3) if you want to….what are you going to do and why?

Hmmm….

  • Get my eating under control: KEEP
  • Find 2 days for cardio every week: KEEP
  • Eat dinner at the table 2 times a week: As I can’t even eat dinner some nights, I think I am going to roll this into the first one.
  • Do not sit in front of the tv on Mondays and Wednesdays until 7PM: Too stressful and connected to timeframes – I think this one will be Find two ways to relax that do not involve watching television each week.
  • Get on a better sleep schedule: KEEP
  • Track my progress: I think this blog does a good job of tracking what I need to, so I am just dropping this one.

What’s your worst bad habit and have you ever tried to tackle it? Do you want to?

I am an avoider.  I hide from conflicts, confrontation, phone calls, things that make me uncomfortable, etc.  There have been times in my life where I’ve forced myself to do certain things, but I’ve AVOIDED dealing with it…  I know there is part of me that would love not to live like this, but I don’t even know where to start.  I think working on confidence and small victories has been helping.  Maybe one of my goals should be dealing with things as they happen?  It is the anticipation that kills me, most times.

Fun Time: Would you rather have Burgers for feet or Sausages for fingers? 

Burgers for feet.  I talk with my hands and that could get dangerous!

  1. OMG I think I was born to avoid! I will avoid really simple stuff sometimes and when I finally do it I wonder what I avoided it for!

    • Me too! Most things are usually so much worse in my head than in real life…

  2. I can relate to your “avoider” issue. I am now trying to force myself to answer the phone and such so that I can be more involved in what’s going on around me.

    • It is so hard, isn’t it? I am hoping by admitting it, it will be easier for me to recognize when I am doing it and try and face whatever is making me avoid something…

      PS: I LOVE your blog – it is so inspiring!

  3. Fitting into clothes that didn’t previously fit well/at all is definitely FABULOUS 🙂
