One day at a time, one step at a time.

After doing so well almost 3 years ago, and having several stressful events I have gained back a lot of the weight I lost and am working to regain control over my life. Eating for me is often a coping mechanism and during extremely stressful times it is my crutch. I am learning to put that chocolate down and back away...

To my Spark Warriors (which is you),
I am sorry to write that there will be no weekly accountability report (WAR) for today and from now on. I have started blogging them so that I do not bunch up your Spark Page comments section and I will have a report that I can look back at and see if I am doing to what I wrote down. So if you have the time please feel free and stop by and read my WAR. Feel free to add your comments or concerns (thank you and stay focused)!

To all my SparkWarriors (accountability update for last week),
Well, another week has flown by and I managed to lose another pound. As for my calorie intake (food allowance); I did go over twice last week (one on the fifth and one on the thirteenth). As for my cardio, I was able to do 429 minutes worth and burned 4560 calories. My blood pressure was normal when checked (checked every Saturday). So to sum it up—I did well! I even started using the exercise notes for how I am feeling for that day and report any aches that I have encounter. This will be a document that I can use when I go see my Doctor for my yearly check up. I also found out that 3500 calories will add a pound to your weight? My plan for this coming week is to try and stay focus on my calorie allowance. I am aiming to get to 195 by Saturday. This weekend will be a huge challenge for me; it’s my Grandson B-day and I will be on the grill – grilling it up! I’m not planning on going over my daily allowance but who knows (LOL)?? YOU STILL HAVE TO ENJOY LIFE – RIGHT??? I hope you’re all doing well and I am anxious to see how your weekly results pan out – take care and God Bless!
Thank you for the encouraging words-- It's nice to see people in your corner backing you up.

To all my SparkWarriors (ANNE),
It was one heck of a week! To start off, I managed to lose one pound and I was able to crossover to One-der-land (below 200). I also kicked butt on my NAVY PRT test. I did 75 sit-ups in two minutes and completed 70 pushups; with the same allowed min. Although, I was quite surprise with my run? The Navy allowed me to run a mile and half less than 15 min 30 sec; I did it in 13 min 19 sec and still had energy to keep running. But what had me feeling real good was that my partner was 5 years younger and I smoked all of his scores; he was quite surprise too (soon-to be 45 VS 40 yrs old)? As for my eating, I did go over twice for the week, but I still managed to lose that pound. Overall, I think I did great! For doing so good yesterday, I REALLY splurged on eating (what the heck it was Cinco de Mayo)! I went way over my calorie intake! Today I was going to cancel my cardio; due to doing it yesterday (yesterday was suppose to be my day off), however I got up this morning and managed to bang it out. So why did I write this part? I wanted all of my SparkWarriors to see it is all about attitude and effort! If you put your mind to something you will accomplish it. And to add to that note about working out today; I still did it with a sore throat, coughing and feeling congested! BUT I DO FEEL BETTER AFTER A DRENCHED SWEATY T-SHIRT! Last but no least, please stay focus and if you need to higher your effort button - then do it (Ooorah)!
p.s - I have posted new pics!

To all my SparkWarriors-- ANNE (my weekly accountability),
Well, I didn’t hit my goal this week; I really wanted to be below 200 (Oh well)! Come next week, I know for a fact that I will be in the “Onederlands” (below 200 pounds)! On the positive note, I did manage to drop 3 pounds (I'm @ 200). I did do my weekly review of what went good or bad today. I am surprised that after last weekend of going WAY OVER my calorie intake; I still managed to drop 3 pounds? I guess I credited it to my cardio program? I am calculating that I am averaging an hour a day and burning about 600 – 700 calories a day; on a 6 day routine (that’s not including my daily routine). I also credit that after my light dinner; I have been going out and banging out some “honey do chores” (even when I am tired). So in a nutshell, I have been eating whatever I want (moderately), I’ve been working out steadily (cardio only) and the results have shown that I have been either holding steady on my weight or dropping a couple of pounds here or there? Isn’t that how it is supposed to be? I encourage all of you; if you haven’t started yet; to start a weekly review of your food intake/ activity. It has been a big help to me! It gets me hyped up for next week by planning on what I need to do! Take care, Stay focus, and do not lose sight of your goals. I’m looking forward to hearing your success (Ooorah)!
