Happy New Year?

Rate this Entry
I'm so glad this year is finally over. I hope and pray that this coming year is full of healthy surprises that make me happy! I found out that one of my dearest friends' breast cancer has gone to her brain now. Devastated. I keep trying to find stories of women who have beaten the odds - I find a few, but in my heart of hearts I feel like I just spent my last Christmas/New Years with her. I hate cancer with all my heart and soul. Another friends' father died of his cancer last week and I have the funeral this Saturday. Not looking forward to that at all. Sad. These people are my age...here I'm worried about what I weigh and they just want to live. Sure puts things in perspective. I've really gotten funky about what I put into my body now...I hate the thought of eating any processed food. I know we aren't guaranteed a healthy life, but not eating crap definitely ups the odds that our bodies are strong enough to fight against diseases.

Tonight is my first work out since starting the hcg. I have about a month before I start round 2. I wish I didn't hate working out so much. I just like being comfy! I hate pain. I hate being out of breath. I hate being tired. lol I love being cozy in my comfy clothes on the couch watching TV. Pretty sure that means I'm lazy. It's also hard to be motivated to work out when the hcg does such a great job at helping you get skinny...I look great in clothes...if only it could tone your muscles, too! ha ha! Wishful thinking eh?

Hope all of my fellow hcg'ers had a great holiday season and kept the pounds at bay. I had one steak day so far, but got right back down and have stayed within 1 lb of my LIW. I consider that a great success considering all the cakes and pastries and carbs/starches that adorn everyone's tables for the whole month of December. I did way better than I ever thought I would. I'm starting to get to where the "bad foods" aren't even appealing to me. Wish I could get to the point where working out was something I looked forward to - and skipping the gym bummed me out.

Here's to hoping 2013 is happy and healthy for us all!

    Speak those things that are not as if they were so... You will have a blessed 2013. I believe it for us all. This past year as been hell on wheels for me. I left a friendship behind. reached out to help my little sister she stole all of my money and moved to texas. My granny passed away and I was unable to see her or attend her funeral due to finances. We recently found out that my other Grandma has cancer in her lungs and they gave her 6 months to live. I really think in these times we need to hold on to our hopes and faith. Some things are way beyond our control. It gives me peace to know I will see my grandmothers again. Anyway its funny because I hate working out as well. I realized after I got my gym membership that I hated it so much I would rather work out at home for free or do some walking. There are alot of oils out there that can help to tone the body as well if used daily. Livestrong.com has helped me with that. Right now I am using mustard seed oil which can be used in different ways. But when used on the body should be used over night and mixed with another oil or lotion that has fragrance. Next time you google around you should research. I hope that you stay encouraged and continue on to your goal.

    Thanks Brila - I will look that up. I have a session for a body wrap that "says" it will help tone up, etc. I'll let you know how that works out as well.

    I'm sorry you had such a rough year also. Makes dieting and trying to stay healthy a little bit harder when the stress and frustration, sadness makes you want to eat yummy stuff to self medicate. I wish you a much better 2013. Hugs!
