I Can Do This!

I am the mother of 3 little guys and a wife to my very best friend and I am also a teacher! That being said, I have not had a lot of time to spend on my own health...in fact, I have pushed myself back and the food to the front. Why? My excuse has been time or money, I don't have time to eat healthy, I don't have the money to eat healthy! It is easier to eat this way, I have had a looong day, so I will treat myself to a big bowl of ice-cream. The operative word there was EXCUSE! Time to ...

That being said, I have not had a lot of time to spend on my own health...in fact, I have pushed myself back and the food to the front. Why? My excuse has been time or money, I don't have time to eat healthy, I don't have the money to eat healthy! It is easier to eat this way, I have had a looong day, so I will treat myself to a big bowl of ice-cream. The operative word there was EXCUSE! Time to throw the excuses away! Time to commit to eating healthy and getting my family healthy at the same time. All fires start with a spark. My spark is to drink 8 glasses of water, exercise ten minutes, and journal each day! Can't wait to start week 1!

I just read your updated info on your sparkpage.... you're doing great! Not only have you learned a lot, but you've inspired many other people-- like me-- to do the same! And a marathon!? WOW!!!! When you become a Zumba instructor, if you were nearby, I'd surely come to your class! Go Michelle! emoticon

Hey!
I've added some new pics in my latest blog :)
I've stayed on track pretty well this week with food, I just haven't exercised very much, I'm off work for the next couple of days, so going to get some in then.
You don't have long til you graduate from c25k!! You are gonna feel great once you do! :) I'm glad you are having more success with outdoor running than me lol.
I haven't been up to much this weekend, I'm working evenings. Tonight I have to stay at work until 1.30am!! I have a late arrival to wait for, luckily I get paid 40 pounds to wait for him, so it's not so bad, just boring.
What have you been up to, besides moving? I hope you make lots of money at your yard sale :)

Doing good. I have been really busy with my business. It's taking off like crazy. I got Zumba in twice last week, but none this week, I have stuff going on in the evenings almost every day.
I did lose .4 of a lb this week. Any loss is better than none, but my clothes are fitting looser. My sizes 10 American Eagle jeans are falling off! So I think I might have been gaining muscle. I can see the loss now in my face more than ever! I have new pics. I just need the scale to catch up. So I will probably take the dogs for a long evening walk tonight.
I have my date for Zumba training, in August!
How are you doing? You look great. I know the upcoming move is probably a tremendous load! You look gorgeous!

Hey!
The running outside isn't going great to be honest. I've come to the conclusion that I'm just not an outdoor runner, I really don't enjoy it! So I'm gonna stick to running on the treadmill. I enjoy it more & I know I will do it more regularly because I like doing it. For fitness benefits that's the way to go right now I think.

I'm trying to get back on track this week, the past couple of weeks have been a bit lazy. So I'm starting to track my food again & now I've just got to work on the exercise. I'm planning on going to the gym this evening.

I'm getting a new hair cut this afternoon, something a bit shorter for the summer. I'll try & post some pics up once I get it done :)

Enjoy your run this evening.
