I want to eat healthier, I do not want to develop diabetes when I am older, and I know that I am prone to this. I am currently OBESE, only by a few pounds, but I don't even want to be overweight.To be of normal weight I would have to weigh 150 or less 145 would make me smile :) So here's to becoming the me I want to be.
As of 6/30/13 I am back up to 192 and and would love to even be 175
I would just simply like to be healthy. I would like to be stronger, I would like to learn how to resist temptation, I have a habit of a few great diet days followed by a few bad days, It is like I give in to my cravings then I give up till the next week, destroying all the work I have done.
Ready, Set, GOAL.
I will try better to reach my dietary goal (ex. calorie intake, protein, fat, and carbohydrate consumption)
I will drink 8 glasses of water a day!
I will workout for 30 minutes a day (at least)
*I realize sometimes I may need a break.
I will start weighing myself only 2 days a week, If I weigh myself only once a week, and I see no change, I get discouraged. Right now I have been weighing myself daily and one day it is up one pound, and some days it's down a pound. One day the scale said I gained 3.7pounds in one day (not possible)
I will eat as many fruits and vegetables as I can, I am aiming for 3 minimum, but here lately I have been eating 5 servings a day
I am 34years. I have a eight year old little girl. My daughter helps to motivate me, right now she has been doing squats with me every evening. I recently RAN 1mile on the treadmill, I have never done that before, the most I have ever ran was 5 minutes straight (and I about fell over) My mile took over 12 minutes, but I am very proud of that (It proves that I am getting stronger).
I hate yo-yo-ing, I have been between 160-200 for the last 10 years, I would love to be a healthy weight (135-150).
I am ready to make a lifestyle change!
This is what I tell myself when I am ready to start a new goal:
Ready, Set, GOAL
| current weight: 175.7
Success is a Choice
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."
Stopping by to wish you a great week, Sparkfriend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals...its up to you, and you know you're worth the effort, right?

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!

"I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health, and honoring your body." -Troian Bellisario
“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
Just stopping by to encourage you to make the most of each day, my beautiful young Sparkfriend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you one step closer to attaining them. Don't ever forget that you are always worth your best effort!
Have a healthy week!

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
