To my Spark Warriors (which is you), I am sorry to write that there will be no weekly accountability report (WAR) for today and from now on. I have started blogging them so that I do not bunch up your Spark Page comments section and I will have a report that I can look back at and see if I am doing to what I wrote down. So if you have the time please feel free and stop by and read my WAR. Feel free to add your comments or concerns (thank you and stay focused)!
To all my SparkWarriors (accountability update for last week), Well, another week has flown by and I managed to lose another pound. As for my calorie intake (food allowance); I did go over twice last week (one on the fifth and one on the thirteenth). As for my cardio, I was able to do 429 minutes worth and burned 4560 calories. My blood pressure was normal when checked (checked every Saturday). So to sum it up—I did well! I even started using the exercise notes for how I am feeling for that day and report any aches that I have encounter. This will be a document that I can use when I go see my Doctor for my yearly check up. I also found out that 3500 calories will add a pound to your weight? My plan for this coming week is to try and stay focus on my calorie allowance. I am aiming to get to 195 by Saturday. This weekend will be a huge challenge for me; it’s my Grandson B-day and I will be on the grill – grilling it up! I’m not planning on going over my daily allowance but who knows (LOL)?? YOU STILL HAVE TO ENJOY LIFE – RIGHT??? I hope you’re all doing well and I am anxious to see how your weekly results pan out – take care and God Bless! NETGUNNY, Hope you're doing well and thank you for the correction of "Ooohrah"! LOL
NETGUNNY, Thank you, for the Spark Goodie and the comment! Oh by the way, my father-in-law is a retired E9 Marine! He now teaches JROTC Marines at a high school in Lynchburg VA; his school is either in the number one position or in the top five of JROTC of Virgina (Richard Duperior). We have a great relationship and he's in great shape for his age!
To all my SparkWarriors (NETGUNNY), It was one heck of a week! To start off, I managed to lose one pound and I was able to crossover to One-der-land (below 200). I also kicked butt on my NAVY PRT test. I did 75 sit-ups in two minutes and completed 70 pushups; with the same allowed min. Although, I was quite surprise with my run? The Navy allowed me to run a mile and half less than 15 min 30 sec; I did it in 13 min 19 sec and still had energy to keep running. But what had me feeling real good was that my partner was 5 years younger and I smoked all of his scores; he was quite surprise too (soon-to be 45 VS 40 yrs old)? As for my eating, I did go over twice for the week, but I still managed to lose that pound. Overall, I think I did great! For doing so good yesterday, I REALLY splurged on eating (what the heck it was Cinco de Mayo)! I went way over my calorie intake! Today I was going to cancel my cardio; due to doing it yesterday (yesterday was suppose to be my day off), however I got up this morning and managed to bang it out. So why did I write this part? I wanted all of my SparkWarriors to see it is all about attitude and effort! If you put your mind to something you will accomplish it. And to add to that note about working out today; I still did it with a sore throat, coughing and feeling congested! BUT I DO FEEL BETTER AFTER A DRENCHED SWEATY T-SHIRT! Last but no least, please stay focus and if you need to higher your effort button - then do it (Ooorah)! p.s - I have posted new pics!
I forgot to tell ya it was really strange going for his SOI/MCT training graduation at Pendleton. It is the same place we brought him home from the hospital to when he was born.....never having a clue he would one day train to be a Marine there....boggled this Momma's mind a bit, lol.
