Winning – Saturday Sayings

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve failed or if you’ve been beaten.  All that matters is that you learn something, get back up, and try again.  Because winning is a good feeling, but winning when nobody else thought you could is an awesome feeling.” ~ Marc and Angel Hack Life

How important is it for us to think this way in all aspects of our lives? Getting back up, brushing ourselves off and starting over is the ONLY way to succeed. I was SO fortunate to have the support from family, friends and fellow bloggers on my continuing journey of better health.

I see so many people that aren’t being encouraged, as well. I see it on Facebook pages when someone mentions that they are losing weight, eating well and exercising, their friends tell them to lie down and have a cookie. What kind of support is that? That is your fat, unhappy friends discouraging you from being better than them. Or your skinny, unhappy friends that like that you are the fat friend, it makes them feel better about themselves.

So, my friends, go out there and WIN today! Stick to that program you are on. Get in at least 30 minutes of some type of moving… even if it’s just walking… and WIN.

WIN for YOU!


Day 187 – Still Runnin’ In the Rain

Wednesday was a PP day.

Daily weight loss: 0.4 lb/0.20 kg
Total weight loss: 71.7 lb/32.61 kg

Well it was still raining… hard, when I left for work. The walk was a bit challenging, but more challenging was wrestling with a lady, armed with an umbrella in the tea egg line. One of the problems I have here is the inability to accept that these people simply have a. NO MANNERS and b. NO COMPREHENSION OF QUEING IN LINE! Seriously. I am Ms. Manners! And I’m not afraid to say something to anyone not following very basic, civilized rules of life. Like not blatantly cutting in line in front of someone. I asked her politely to move to the back of the line. She actually uttered the ‘F’ word and TOUCHED ME. Oh, touching me, not so good! I whipped my umbrella around to block her access to the tea egg lady, who was watching in utter fascination as to whom was going to win this battle. In the end I DID… MUHAHAHA. As I usually do, when it comes to manners and queing, and in the process of winning, she actually got taken care of 4 people after she would have, if she’d just gotten in line. I marched off, in the pouring rain, feeling like a champion 🙂

Oh, just a small glimpse into what I call my “China Moments”. I could go on for days, but it would bore you and you’d be asking yourself, “Why in the hell does she stay there?”… As I do, daily… but it’s a good paying job and I like the work and the people I work with (most days, like the rest of you).

Breakfast: 2 tea eggs, 500mL of water
Lunch: 1 tea egg, beef slices, 500mL of water
Dinner: Stir-fried beef with onions, seasoned with curry… YUM!
Snack: Yogurt with bran and splenda
Total water intake of the day: nearly 3 liters!

I went for a 30 minute run after dinner and before the yogurt. I stuck with the 7 minute intervals, will try to move up next week to 8 minutes. I hope everyone is having a good evening!


Quote of the day: Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.

I really wish it would stop doing this…
