On My Journey

The last 8 weeks have been real up and down. I let life's hectic ways get in the way of my goals. I made progress, then lost progress, gained weight, lost weight, gained, and then injured myself. I'm tired of weighing in weekly and being disappointed in myself. I'm tired of feeling tired. I'm tired of skipping workouts and then feeling guilty, yet still not getting off my bum and working out.

The last 8 weeks have been real up and down. I let life's hectic ways get in the way of my goals. I made progress, then lost progress, gained weight, lost weight, gained, and then injured myself. I'm tired of weighing in weekly and being disappointed in myself. I'm tired of feeling tired. I'm tired of skipping workouts and then feeling guilty, yet still not getting off my bum and working out.

I'm still taking prerequisites and doing my best to get into nursing school. My goal is to be in good shape and healthy by time I am accepted into the program. By time I graduate I want to be at my ideal weight and not be worried about handling long shifts on my feet and being able to walk fast for hours.

I also have a little boy that is counting on me being here for a long time. He's 7 and because he's special needs it's super important that I live as long as possible to take care of him. At this time I can barely handle playing chase with him. I'd love to be able to enjoy playing with him!

I have a husband who I've been married to for almost 8 years now and too many times I'm grouchy or unavailable and that's not fair to him. He is very supportive and loving no matter how I live, but he married a fit, happy woman and I'd like to return.

I have Fibromyalgia, issues with depression and anxiety, and Seasonal Affective Disorder. I'm on many medications and frankly the limitations this all causes me is getting old! I'd like to be able to discontinue some medications and I know getting fit and healthy will help.

The Winter 5% Challenge is about to start so it's time to create a realistic, rewarding plan...

For 8 weeks I plan on working hard and accomplishing numbers to be proud of! To make this happen I plan to:

Committing to jog 3-4 days every week
Strength train at gym or at home 3 days every week
Play dance games on Wii or Kinnect 2 days every week

Track all meals at least 5 days every week
Stay within calorie limits
Strive to hit appropriate numbers for iron, fat, carbs, protein
Eat at least 6 servings of fruit/veggies every day

Report my progress on team page at least 5 days every week
Read and comment on people's blogs and pages
Post a personal blog at least 3 days every week

Weigh in once every week
Read at least 3 health articles every week



QUOTES TO LIVE BY:
“You get credit for what you finish, not what you start.”

“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.”

“It is better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand days as a lamb.”

“May you live every day of your life.”

“It’s hard to beat a person that never gives up.”

“Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.”

“If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.”

“Fear less, hope more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Hate less, love more; And all good things are yours.”

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.”

“Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children.”

I just wanted to take advantage of still having power to send you some warm Halloween greetings. . .
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Dressed up little creatures
On a dark October night
Run from door to door
Giving everyone a fright.

They come and ring your doorbell
And before they will retreat,
They beg you for some candy
By yelling "trick or treat".

When their bags are full,
They run home to eat their fill.
They taste a bit of everything
And by morning they are ill!

So to keep the youngsters healthy,
I've figured out a deal.
This year instead of candy,
I'll give them all oatmeal!

Wishing you a Happy Halloween!

Hugs,
