My Sweet Baby!
Forced to walk for my health.
Stretching to a new me one day at a time!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Its been 100 days officially on March 22, 2009. So far I have learned that I am an emotional eater and that it takes a lot of discipline and willful conscience decision making to overcome those emotions that threaten your life for well-being.
I have packed on the exercise minutes and have seen the results thus so far. I am happy with the progress I am making, and have turned into a better confident woman as a result.
The challenge has been daunting at times, but I will survive and make it.
I look forward to the challenge and hope I don't fall short of my goal(s). My goal is to lose sixty pounds by November 26, 2009.

Thanks for still being apart of ~curvey creations~
I know the board has been a little quiet but myself and the other leaders are trying to bring the board alive again. So please keep checking in with us. We can unleash our curves together in a healthy yet fun way. I'm so looking forward to all of our scales dropping,maintaining,and creating friendships all over again. If you have any suggestions PLEASE email me or the other leaders and we'll try to include the request on the boards.
Have a great one!

I am responding to the request you made in your status update. Most of us experience lack of motivation at some points during our fitness journey. Hang in there. Try to do some type of exercise for 5 minutes every day. You can do squats while putting your clothes in the dryer. Curls while bringing in groceries. Bring your dumbbells into the kitchen while you're cooking, and do an exercise, then put some water on to boil. Do another exercise, then put the pasta or rice on. Then do another exercise, etc. etc.
What helped me was to put my workouts on my daily task list, on my kitchen whiteboard, where I also put up our family schedule for the week. When that no longer works for me, I do slow down a little cuz my life just demands more of my time than I have, and so I have to focus on other things for about a month. Those times I just do maintenance, or try not to undo all the progress that I've done.
Additionally, you can blog about it. Your team members have been there and know what you are going through. You are NEVER ALONE in this. No matter how distant your goals seem, someone here has been there, and knows that it can be done. So you just hang on for dear life. Do whatever you have to do to make YOU a priority. Because you are worth it. Because you can do this. I know it. Do you?
