A journal of complete personal transformation and empowerment! I am blogging and maintaining this page without my identity showing very much because I am challenging my realities and want endless room for change and to not be boxed in by old definitions of 'me'....I am ready to GROW! {and shrink, LOL!} I am reading sparkpages and blogs for all your inspiration you all have been so kind to share, and am recording things I learn and sharing lots of my tracking and such, in hopes that I also can inspire others as we all work on our goals together!!

A year ago at the end of April, I pulled up roots of 15 years to fly over 1000 miles to a new Love, new career path and an entirely new life. It Rocked My World very hard in so many ways! I feel like I am just now getting my feet under me to start 'building' and as this Spring 'sprung' so did my ambitions, creativity and most of all, my happiness, confidence and motivation stir and awake. It has been a truly wondrous year and the best is yet to come!!

My Goals:
I am on a journey to transform myself through diet, exercise, and better self care.
My tracker shows my all time high weight going back to the stable weight I felt healthiest at...I have done some yoyo'ing in between but have been slow and steady losing for a bit now.
6-15-10 My Program has shaped up awesomely since 3-17, the goal is a steady and sensible but strict 2 pounds a week, with skin tight, daily keeping my attitude mostly positive and being very good to myself! Needs work still- sleep hours, water intake increased, need to track more!


My Program:
The Exercise-
Every Morning first thing: Ballet Barre
Gym M, W, F- 10 min mile cardio warmup, stretch out, full body Cybex Eagle+ FT 360 circuit, light resistance, adding reps as I can, Zumba classes, Dolphin Kick laps.
T, TH, SA, SU- Tracy Anderson Method Mat + BDC routines.
Home Equipment:Ballet Barre, 3 pound dumbbells, 3/4" mat, Swiss Ball, Zills and BD belts.
I will add 1x week Belly Dance Class in July and re-begin serious 2x week Ballet classes in the fall Semester of 10.
I am committed to dedicating a big block of time to exercise.

The Diet-
Sensible but controlled, I am creating it with research from Spark guidelines, low carb + WHAT WORKS.
Mimi's Plan: 1200 calories, 20-25 NET carbs, 32-56g fat, 60-127g protein
I am trying for as few fillers, additives and preservatives as possible by including as mumuch fresh food as possible. doing mindful eating, using a smaller plate, including many interesting herbs and spices as I can.

Positive Attitude adjustment and more kind self-talk as many times as necessary,

    It's the last day of July ...a good time to reflect upon your goals for August! Things to consider may be...

    How many fitness minutes do you want to try to achieve?
    How many pounds would you reasonably like to lose?
    What new activities would you like to try?
    What has been working for you that you would like to continue?
    What hasn't been working and should be changed?

    Not everyone likes to set goals, but it is a valuable tool to use on this journey. Goals help to provide focus and a vision for what we want to accomplish. Even if we fail to meet our goals, the experience provides valuable feedback --- What went wrong? What behavior do we need to change to attain what we set out to do?

    Take a few minutes ... challenge yourself with some goals for August!

    ... Looking forward to success in August! Keep on keepin' on!!

    Did you know that there is a National day to celebrate Junk Food? It’s today…. But we say, NO WAY!

    Just dropping by some pages to remind everyone to say NO to empty food that won’t help our efforts!

    Make good choices on this ANTI-Junk Food Day! We can do this!

    (((( Sending SKINNY, will-power induced Vibes! ))))
