Call Me Dee

Returning to SparkPeople was one of the best decisions I made in 2012.

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. ...

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. Challenges: 30 Day Abs Challenge and no cookies all month.

February- 18/28 workout days; hit my daily steps count 27/28 days. Challenges: repeat 30 Day Abs Challenge- ended 2/13; day 11 of the challenge (I got really sick).
No Cookies, Chocolate, Cake, or Candy all month- I ingested 1 fortune cookie, I totally don't think of it as a cookie; and there's some debate about my ingestion of panCakes and pound Cake, because I don't count them as cake. I had nightmares that I ingested a gummy bear or an M&M and blew the challenge, but I did better than I thought!!

March- 31/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 31/31 days; Streak into Spring 21/21 days; eat 3 veggies a day 28/31 days; and go to the gym 4 days a week 4/4 weeks!

April- 24/30 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 24/30 days; 100 Happy Days- Days 1-30 were fun to share; go to the gym 4 days a week- 4/5 weeks (I caught a cold the final week); and NO 'little bits', 'just a bites', or 'just ones'- Every Saturday I would have a few bites of the boyfriends' pancakes, but did impressively well the rest of the week!

May- 25/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 28/31 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 31-61 in the bag; Hit new goal weight- not meant to be this month; 30 Day Abs Challenge- dropped this challenge early in the month; go to the gym 4 days a week- 1/4 weeks

June- 30/30 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 29/30 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 62-91 in the bag; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 1/4 weeks; Take a walk break at work- 21/21 days; Eat within range 6 days/week- 3/4 weeks; Inch closer to that new goal weight- didn't happen

July- 26/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 24/31 days; Finish 100 Happy Days- done; Emma Nutt Day Maintenance Challenge (with center weight of 122lbs)- missed the deadline for the final week in July; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 4/5 weeks; Eat within range 6 days/week- 4/5 weeks

Thanks so much for reading my "different" blog yesterday and even more so for understanding! It was really hard for me and I truly appreciate the responses. The Lord gets all the credit!

Folks come and go on SP and activity levels vary greatly. My own friend list just keeps getting smaller and smaller as I constantly update and delete inactive and/or uninvolved "friends." But, I'd treasure 5-10 supportive, active, friends over 100+ virtually nonexistent ones.

YOU are a TREASURE!

And, I just wanted you to know that you are one friend/reason why I stay on SP!! I really appreciate your consistent support and interest in my journey.

I'm here for you as well!!

I just wanted you to know that you motivated me today. I was looking at your blogs and you're so good about getting your fitness minutes in and, even though it's my rest day, I got off the couch and did my runner's body weight challenge. 40 step ups (each side) and 24 plank indeed. I even added a 1 minute elbow plank just because. So, THANK YOU for being a motivator!!!
