Every one has a different journey...

I have been on this journey for about three years now. By January 2011 I had lost 40 pounds and had only 30 more to go but I got pregnant that summer, got put on bedrest and gained the weight right back plus more. So now that my body has healed and things are a little bit calmer now I am doing this all over but with some changes. I am more forgiving of myself and my small slip ups. I am more focused on health and making lifelong changes for myself and my family. I am determined to make fitness ...

Goals for the rest of 2012:
Complete a 5k without feeling like I am going to die.
Track my calories and stay between 1200-1300 a day.
Think carefully about everything I eat-no more mindless eating!
Exercise at least 4 times a week.

My Program:
It is very difficult to find time for myself so I am going easy this time-eating clean, tracking food, and doing the treadmill. I hope to start lifting weights by the end of this year but right now I just need to be consistent.

Other Information:
l love to read anything and I am learning to love anything about health, and healthy food. I enjoy learning about this stuff and teaching it to my friends and family who are either on this weight loss journey or need to be!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
-Rae Smith

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

Get ready for a healthy week, Sparkfriend! You know what you want, and you know what you need to do in order to make it happen...so just do it! Push yourself, even if you don't feel like it...because you really are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
