Good Morning Asylum

A few things make it hard to come back here. 1. I'm older. I feel like a million years older. I wonder, "How old is too old to start again?I think it's been 8 or nine years since I started coming here? I looked back at some of my first posts and I knew nothing about nothing. I remember that eager mind. That longing to be comfortable in a gym and to not feel completely inadequate. I guess in someway it was like a fumbling teenager in the backseat.

How do you feel about your age progression and wisdom attained during your hiatus?

2. The feeling of accountability. Knowing that people are watching, waiting and supporting. Sometimes we think people are out there waiting for us to fail. Sometimes that is true. Screw those losers. LOL What is accountability anyway? Dictionary term.. an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions. Pretty simple, yea?

Who do you feel most accountable to?

It's really good to see some familiar faces around here. I'm not nearly insane as I once was, yet. I'm working on that cause I dug that sh** about myself!

Tell us, What do you like about yourself? What about you makes that lip curl into a smile? Tell me or your off the TEAM!?! LOL

I took that picture above yesterday.

Morning. 12 inches of snow here today!!

Age progression...hmmm. I think things are much harder since Im older. Things move slower, harder to attain those things that once was even easy. My wisdom, for myself: I dont want to get back to where I was in the past. I just want to enjoy being healthy. I used to be the all or nothing type attitude. Now Im more of its okay to relax a little and enjoy the moment.

I feel the most accountable to myself. After all, its only me than can get things done. After that, to you guys who encourage me to succeed!

I really like that I never give up! I am always trying to do the right thing. Even in my depression, I knew I had to not give up on myself. Even when nothing seems to change, I keep plugging away. :-)

Greg, no age is too old to start again!!

I know I'm not officially on the team, but I'm hanging out here because I like you guys. :0)

Blue, 7355/ let's say 5 years = 1,471 posts per year/ 365 days is only about 4 post per day. Plenty of time to have fun and workout! I'm glad FB doesn't do post counts, although the bloom is off that rose for me. I don't post as much as I used to. Nothing beats this place for healthy living support!

How do you feel about your age progression and wisdom attained during your hiatus? I feel like poo on a shoe, to be honest. Was doing great till I had josiah 4 years ago, been slacking since. I'm not ready yet to let old age take my ass...I mean, 147! Pounds on my 5'4" very small frame does not cut it. At alll. It's awful. 143 now, but 147 when I had that "holy S&h!t naked mirror moment." Truth hurts.

Who do you feel most accountable to? Tracker peeps. Obviously myself wasn't enough motivation. Since I've been actively posting (and seeing responses!) I've thought about my fellow peeps every time I thought about making a poor choice. The thought of this site actually kept me away from the coke machine at my office all week, other than Monday. I put in 70 cents, thought of y'all and pushed the water button instead. :0)

Tell us, What do you like about yourself? Physically right now? That is a tough one.That my body enabled me to give birth four times. Even though I would have been happier without the two c-sections... My legs and bum still look pretty good despite the crappy way I've treated myself lately. My stomach looks like a pork barrel stove at the moment, containing about 15 extra pounds. This will change. I like that I am a weirdo, and I like that I have a quirky sense of humor and can appreciate the ridiculous and the sublime.

Excellent start today, Greg!!!  So fantastic to see our week started with a post by our leader.  We dug that shit about you, too.

be off the team!  Surprised

Bubz~ Great answers! If we are too old to begin, we might as well start dying. The great thing about age is we have forgotten more than these youngin's have learned. We have a biblical knowledge of what it takes and who we are. Depression can be a real struggle for any of us, I've dealt with it and the one true remedy for me is to "Think of me" Working out, new hobbies and just getting out of the freaking house!

DMGG~ You're basically on the team so stop with all the nonsense. LOL Giving birth for four times.. That is awesome! Creating life. The only birth I've given was not a damn thing. i can't relate but all I gotta say is what a beautiful thing. The one thing you said was "Tracker peeps in your motivation. I've told many people that if you are on your own in this journey, find an on line community or some kind of support group to feed off of. It is the biggest pill of accountability and support cause damn some of our closest peeps don't get it or understand.

Jan~ I don't really see myself as a leader at this point but someone who is trying to be supportive and a friend. Part of me is still a bi-polar crazy ass that sees the world as a bunch of slackers. That's a joke sort of. I like you and your sense of humor. I always have. You are and alays will be one my favorites. I'll never forget making you do stuff after you had your knee cemented. You are a bad-ass trooper with a sense of humor that never failed to make me spit coffee on my cat.

I had a tough workout. I also know because of self-acknowledged wisdom that nothing can stand in my way of keeping a workout rolling like thunder. You want to hog the squat rack? I'll improvise and keep trucking. Some of these new gyms are packed to the rafters. I'll just move somewhere else and beat myself up somewhere else. Heavy metal music and self-inflicting agony is totally under-rated. Tomorrow is totally going to be sissy cardio. I need to get some of this fat away from my gut. "Nuff said!

Way to go, Jessina. You've got this! We've got this! My fitbit says I slept three hours last night. Should be an awesome day at work, lol!

Schools are two hours late, meaning I will be in to work late.

I don't have my official before pictures up yet, but feel free to hop over to the OT thread for my fluffy birthday photos. I'll get them up, I will. Sigh...

I'm tired as heck, but going downstairs to work out anyway. Can't be more tired than I already am, so may as well get week two day one going!

Too little sleep is a good way to remind myself I'm not twenty anymore!

Happy Monday, all.

5-25 week two, day one, upper body.

Composition. That’s the stuff. Fantastic shot.

Age. Now that I’m back on track and back on tracker the what I can do at this age has tipped the scale and what I can’t do is so much lighter on my mind. I’m 43, I have a 2 year old. I need to be in the best health possible for that little guy. I still have a future of grade school outings, sledding, bowling, roller skating, trick or treating, teaching to ride a bike, leaf jumping, little league, team feeds, school plays… That’s a lot to look forward to, a lot to be healthy for.

Accountability to the fella in the first paragraph is my number one. He deserves the mom who can take him bowling, get on a sled with him and run after his bike when the training wheels come off. He should have no less than the mom my now adult children had growing up.

On that note, he can’t hold me accountable or be a support system as my tracker pals can. He doesn’t know the difference. I’m his lovely “so cute” (as he says) mommy no matter my shape. He can’t say “mom, you’re dragging behind my bike because you drank 6 Cokes today to stay awake and there isn’t an ounce of anything in your system that your body needs”. He doesn’t say “great job on the workout, mom”. In fact he can’t stand it when I work out because he isn’t the center of attention. Let me tell you do rows isn’t easy when a 2 year old is crawling back and forth under your chest. He doesn’t see my progress pictures and know I’m doing something for him.

(Brief intermission for a cute story:

I showed him my before, C1 and C2 finish pictures and asked him which one was mommy. “point to the one that is mommy". He was really confused as he looked from me to the pictures like it was some kind of trick question. I felt bad and was going to let him off the hook just as daddy asked again. He took his palm across all of them in a circular motion. “All mommy”. Awww. My heart melted and hugged the heck out him.)

Anywhoo. The presence of my tracker pals is huge for me. I’ve never had that person in my life off line who “gets it”.

I like that I have a little mouth on me. Especially when I feel good about myself. The next time I see my dad and he makes some snide comment about having a baby at 40 I’m going to look at him and tell him I am healthier and in better shape than all of my younger siblings combined. Grr. And when I turn away my lip will curl into a smile.

I don’t like that I’m so long winded
