Send Terra your favorite geeky quotes for motivation!


Recommended Posts

I know where I am at.  I know where I want to be.  I know what I need to do to get there.  So why don't I make the choices I need to make to get to where I want to be?

I have been learning about decision fatigue.  I make great choices earlier in the day but by the evening, I'm tired and mentally exhausted.  I don't make the best choices in the evenings.  I think that I need more encouragement to make better choices and build those habits that I want to have. 

 

Can you send me your favorite quotes, memes or other motivation media to help me through this challenge?!?!  Thank you in advance.

 

This challenge will be another simple one. 

  • Keep tracking using Noom
    • I want to see my weight go down. 
    • I want to keep tracking food on a regular basis
    • Keep up with the Noom lessons - they help! 
  • Eat better
    • veggies and fruit
    • filling foods with lower calorie density
    • less added sugars
  • Do physical therapy as much as possible. 
    • I have 4 months to get back into shape before I get released to do BJJ again. 
    • Build strength and flexibility back
    • Increase stamina by walking or riding the stationary bike

 

Here are some initial motivation thoughts from me:

Hey Terra!  Sorry, no quote at the moment, but I hear you on the decision fatigue.  I've taken steps to eliminate as much deciding as I can and its a huge relief.  I hope you can find some routines or "decide once" moments that help you stick to your plans.  ❤️

I feel like I need something in my life to change...  work, home, my hair, my vehicle or maybe just my attitude.  (Its likely the last one and that one is hard!)

Honestly I love that and blue is my favorite color.  I have a hair extension that I can clip in that is those very colors!!! Right now my daughter is platinum, which is crazy.  She has long dark hair like me.  It took a lot of work to get it there and there is some damage.  She is going to do a powerful conditioning treatment before we dye it to pastel pink and blue.  

 

Unfortunately blue hair is hard!!  (I also work in a fairly conservative industry) ALL the gold/yellow has to come out otherwise the fade is UGLY!!!   That is why I usually go purple.  It is far more forgiving and I love it when my white roots get a shot of semi-permanent purple, they just glow!!!  This looks a lot like my typical color although my base has purple in it too.  I honestly think my hair is getting too long.  When I find myself in a messy bun 6 days a week its usually time for a change in shape/length.

Its been over a week since I last posted...  Lots of travel has happened.  Some of it for work, some for my parents 50th wedding anniversary.  Tomorrow I leave again to take eldest spawn to some medical specialists up in Denver.  And we found out today that my Dad will have surgery next week.  (He was a little off all weekend and we now know why!) I have drank too many adult beverages and ate too much food.  Logging and PT are a little off but I am getting them back on track right now!!  And I am looking forward to spending some extra one-on-one time with my daughter. 

 

Some quotes for me today!

Small victory this morning.

I expected something much higher.  It actually went down .5 lbs since the last time I stepped on the damm thing.  Honestly thought I would be starting over at a high point.  Now it feels like I just took a two week pause and now I continue where I left off.  That feels good.  I know its one metric, however my weight is important to my getting back to healthy joints.  I need to be kind to my joints!!!

I want my life back!!!

 

I am very excited to be traveling with the healthy kiddo.  She eats yummy things like seafood and salads!  So we will have fun in Denver eating yummy healthy things.

I feel you. Like, I don't want to invest a lot of emotional energy into the number on the scale. I don't have to be emotional about being borderline obese along with the troubles that brings to my joints and tendons and ligaments etc. But that doesn't change that these things are factors I have to deal with.

 

So I'm right there with you.

 

Have fun in Denver! I've heard that CO is, like, the healthy state and I'm absolutely positive you'll have your share of tasty and optimal choices. :)

That diagnosis sounds tough. But , at least you know what you are dealing with. Did the doctors have an action plan for treating it?

The basics for treating Dysautonomia is fairly simple: drink lots of water, more electrolytes and salt (as much as she can handle), exercise more (she still has some joint issues so this one is tough) and general taking care of herself.  So first we. are focusing on water, electrolytes and salt. Theses are easy and should have a big impact.  Exercise will be harder.  

 

 

My father had surgery today.  It went well but we are waiting on biopsy results.  I still have a hard time remembering that he is 69 years old.  I don't feel my age and I sure don't think of him as that old.  

 

Lots on my mind today and many distractions keeping me focused on piddly stuff.
