building the body of my dreams - one day at a time

UPDATE 1/9/14: time to reevaluate.

UPDATE 12/4/10:
Getting refocused. Realizing that the heart of the problem is my food addiction and looking for ways to overcome that.


UPDATE 12/5/10: Doing the 5% Challenge this month.

Assignment #1 - On your Spark Page write up your Winter 5% Challenge Commitment.

How much and how often will you exercise? I will do my PT in the pool a minimum of 3x a week.

What diet will you ...

UPDATE 12/5/10: Doing the 5% Challenge this month.

Assignment #1 - On your Spark Page write up your Winter 5% Challenge Commitment.

How much and how often will you exercise? I will do my PT in the pool a minimum of 3x a week.

What diet will you follow? I will follow the old WW core foods plan.

How will you support your team? I will log in and read the boards at least 3x a week.

UPDATE 6/10/2010: There have been ups and downs since September. I finished the Nike Women's Half Marathon in October. Walked it. Made the decision to go for the Top of Utah Marathon on 9/18/2010 which IS my actual 40th bday. In the meantime I have discovered some major issues with my left hip which is making training rather unconventional. I have also completed the 18 mile "Little Red Riding Hood" on my bike this month. Finally, I am trying to adapt to the new reality of being a single mom.

UPDATE 9/20/2009: Just had another birthday and we are into the final countdown to age 40. I would like to be in the best shape of my life before that date. I have my ducks in a row, and now I just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other!

UPDATE 7/12/2009: It's the first day of the rest of my life.

UPDATE 4/30/2009: Still tired and somewhat sore from surgery, but back to work and generally in good spirits. Allowed to begin exercising after 5/5. Not sure with the fatigue that I will, but at least I know I can. Also, I joined WW last Saturday.

"You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you do not try." ~BeverlySills

UPDATE 3/22/2009: I am having a hysterectomy and bladder repair on Tuesday. Also, found out last week that I have a stress fracture in my heel. No vigorous activity for 6 weeks, although I will be able to do some very light walking. I am out of work for three weeks minimum and plan on using this time to get recharged and aligned with my goals.

Update 3/7/2009: Taking a break for a week or so while waiting to hear from doctor and get treatment under way. Inbox me if you want details.

Update 1/2/2009: "It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop." ~Confucius

Update 10/25/2008: I WALKED A HALF MARATHON!! It took me nearly 4.5 hours, but I did it. :)

�When you improve a little each day, eventually big things occur . . . . Not tomorrow, not the next day, but eventually a big gain is made. Don�t look for the big, quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That�s the only way it happens�and when it happens, it lasts.� ~John Wooden

"The time is always right to do what is right." ~Martin Luther King, Jr

"Many of our fears are tissue paper thin, and a single
courageous step would carry us clear through them." ~Brendan Francis

"Where the heart is willing, it will find a thousand ways. Where it is unwilling, it will find a thousand excuses." ~Arlen Price

"If you spend too much time working on your weaknesses, all you end up with is a lot of strong weaknesses." ~Dan Sullivan, business coach

They're kids...they're resilient and they'll adapt. Jump, baby, and a safety net will appear.

I still have "pinch me" moments where I can't believe I just...packed up and left everything I was familiar with to live with a guy I've been friends with for 12+ years, JUST. LIKE. THAT. It's going RIDICULOUSLY well, too...imagine that? We aren't even trying and it's working out perfectly. I like this. I like this a lot.

Yano..even though I gained some weight back...I still feel better now than I did 20 years ago, on so many levels. I'm getting closer to where I was at my smallest, I know I'll get there, I'm just ready for this sh*tstorm to pass so I can get on with it, yano?!
