Fitness Minutes: 10,762

My Goals:
Daily Goals:

Drink more water!

Get at least 7 hrs sleep!

Eat more healthy foods, but no food is off limits in moderation!

Aerobic exercise at least 30 mins every day - Walking on my breaks and 1/2 of my lunch hour adds up to an hour a day! (Done! 7/3/2014)

Weekly Goal:
Strength Training at least 3 times per week.

Short term:
Get under 200 lbs!
(Done! 3/16/14)

Next Goal - 195 lbs!

Long-term:
135 lbs, strong and healthy!

(My top weight was 230 lbs in March, 2011)

My Program:
It's not enough just eat healthy or to exercise regularly, to lose a significant amount of weight, you have to do BOTH consistently!

Personal Information:
I'm a divorced mom with one son who's going to FSU right now to get a degree in Chemistry! I musta done something right.

Now that's he's trying his wings and preparing to leave the nest it's time to focus on me again and figure out what this next part of my journey will entail. I know I will be happier and healthier when I lose weight so that's just what I'm doing.

I work on a computer all day long and then when I get home I write, again on a computer, so sitting all day is not helping. I like breaking my hour of daily walking up to get my blood flowing instead of sitting for hours at a time without moving. It seems to be helping. I'll add more intense exercise as I get fitter, but for now I'm content with my journey so far.

Other Information:
"Strength does not come from winning.

Your struggles develop your strength.

When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"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."

"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.
Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. "
~Ellen Goodman

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


"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true -- action precedes motivation. You have to prime the pump and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
- Robert J. McKain

The Healthy Holidays Challenge team is still going strong, and we still have time to make some progress before New Years Day! If you're not feeling motivated to workout and eat right today....do it anyway! Be your own hero and take charge. You will likely feel motivated after you get started. I know I don't have to remind you that you're worth the effort, right?
Hugs,
Pixie
