"If it is to be it is up to me"

For my recent info refer to my new blog.
I am not getting any younger and need to loose to be healthier. I belong to TOPS and still have not reached goal but at least I have losses and know I can get this done.

To be honest I have NOT been exercising. Getting out of bed and making trips to the fridge don't count.

BUT I have discovered something. I can do more.
I have a Gazelle that has been collecting dust and snow. Well I decided to clean it off and use it. It squeaked to life and I set my alarm for 5 minutes because I did not think I could do more. It was hard the first time, second time a week later and again the third time another week later. That time I thought I could have gone longer but the alarm went off and so I stopped. WHY????
I realized I had set myself up for failure.
so the next time I got on the gazelle I set the stopwatch and went until I felt like that was about all I had. I was surprised to see it was almost 10 minutes so I pushed forward for that 10. Well when I looked it was 12 minutes and I thought " I think I could make 15 minutes" so on I went. I live in the mountains and have a lovely view from my porch where the gazelle is sitting and I got distracted watching Squikie (the Cat) play with her tail. When I looked down at the stopwatch I had done 16.2 minutes. That was last Wednesday, Today I pushed on and made 20.2 minutes. My plan would be to continue to 30 minutes and do it daily. I am on my way.

March 22 2013
It is 30 degrees outside and I know I need to get in my exercise.... Well I out on my sweats and on to the Gazelle I go. I can see snow on the distant mountains and ice covers the top layer of water in the rain barrel and I am counting my steps as I use the Gazelle . I am only getting in 10 minutes but that is better than ZERO.

I have gotten my glucose level down this week and am doing well at keeping it there. I am beginning to see progress toward my goals.

February 2014.
Another cold day. I am finally back and working on this weight loss, lifestyle change. It is a challenge every day but I know I am worth the effort.

May 2014, and the journey continues. I am now consistently using the Gazelle daily. I still have to make myself do it but I am going to make this work. I have reduced my caloric intake by about 500 to 1000/day. Still have work to do. I am still having trouble with evening snacking. I am still working on me.

Jan 14 2015 I have started again. Seems like I get distracted and stop trying. I have a dear friend that lives in GA. She has lost 100 pounds and kept it off for several years. She is a great inspiration to me. She is also my greatest cheerleader. I MUST get this excess weight off. I have made some positive goals. I am working on improving my health. I am doing better with my FBS levels And remembering to take ,y medicine and now must work on increasing my exercise. I am tracking my food and fitness on SP, and active with my TOPS chapter. I am still a work in progress the inner me is fighting to get out of this clock of indifference.

emoticon Bonnie! Never compare yourself to others. Your spark journey is not about keeping up with others. It’s about competing against self. Choose to see the best in yourself. Recognize your own abilities and redirect ways on how to become an improved version of yourself. Feel a love for yourself that is expressed by self-respect, self-esteem and self-confidence. Know how Sparktacular you are! You are a WINNER in all that you do! Have a beautiful and blessed week!
