Yo is back!! It's back to the norm, but Spice up your routine

Friday, June 10, 2011

Welcome back Yolanda and other admins. It was a fun challenge. A nice change of pace. Thanks Kat and all involved.

The chaos challenge has been over now and we have our Yo back in the ranks of BLC.

Okay, for those not on BLC, that was a special week for our Biggest Loser Challenge team. Stop the Chaos!

Now it's back to the norm.

It's sometimes nice to take a break from the norm and just be crazy. Don't let eating healthy and exercise take over our life. Take a break to just get down and freak out with fun.

I don't mean to pig out and get lazy, but have fun.

You can do your regular routine, but now and then add a little spice to the act.
Go to a swimming pool if you don't have one; take a hike with friends or family instead of walking on the treadmill; work in the yard pulling weeds or gardening instead of doing weights.

Just examples, but do your own thing that can spice up your routine now and then.

You are right there, Courti...we all do need some variety in our exercise
program. Makes exercising more fun, and easier to continue doing each week !
Variety is the spice of life....they do say !!! emoticon

To Bob or Not to Bob

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I've been debating whether to let my hair grow and get it cut into a short bob. It would be a little longer than the profile picture.

Someone already said they liked it short (not bobbed). I have a picture of it short in my pix gallery.

I think maybe I want a change, but it would be harder to dye. lol

I say Dr. Jen Arnold on tv's 'Little Couple' and she had a really cute cut. I just don't know if I look too old to wear a bob. I found a picture of Eileen Barkin with a bob.

I'd thought about getting it a little longer in front than back, then when pulling it behind my ears it would be the same length as the back. Kind of like Posh Spice. (Victoria whatshername - whatshisname Beckham's wife) Not good with names. I'll try to post Eileen Barkin's pix...or is it Ellen Barkin?


Barkin as if you couldn't tell the difference. lol

What do you think?

    Love the Bob look. I just cut mine again and it is right even with the middle of my ear............and to think that 2 1/2 yrs ago it was down to my butt in the back.........ha

Change is just wonderful. I think it has to be what you think will make you happy.

    Thanks so much. I always had a hard time making decisions. I can tell my beautician how many said I should go for the bob.

    I think it would look real nice. I always had my hair short and my ears showing.....now I have it cut forward instead of back with whispy ends. Something new is always fun ! emoticon

    I think you would look great with that style! Your facial shape and bone structure is actually quite similar. And it would be a fun style to try different colors on, too. Let us know what you decide!

    Wow, I'm in the middle of the same struggle! I just cut mine wayyy too short.

I think you ought to give a short bob a try. I think it would be really cute with your jawline. And if you don't like it, easy fix. Whack!

    I love Ellen's cut and think you should give it a try. Hair styles can always be changed and hair always grows. Be adventurous and go for it!!

WWoHP - blog

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

On my Wizarding World of Harry Potter we have to blog about turning negatives turn it into positives.

I know sometimes I get moody. It's hard to pull back out of it, but with lots of prayers and seeing things in a positive and not letting the negative take hold should be a start.

BLC- Crazy Time

Monday, May 30, 2011

My BLC team will be having a Crazy mixup. What is that???? Will know soon.

We were suppose to write a blog/journal for the weekend about our personal journey. I was doing so good until today...well, okay, yesterday too, as I mentioned in my last blog.

It just took one temptation today to put me over. I'm sure rechecking my calories it will be over.

I could do a ton of cardio to up my calorie level to cover the extra bites. emoticon

But, I probably won't. emoticon

That is only one part of my journey. I like to think I'm on my cardio. Yeah, well at least 30 minutes on the treadmill and maybe some dancing here and there.

I'm sure whatever team I'm on we will pull together.

Ready for a lot of Crazy .... !!!!!
As it turned out, I did do a lot of cardio and readusted my fitness tracker and changed a few things for evening snacks. I'm within range! Although Sunday I wasn't. :{

    Love the squirrel! I had a day this weekend too, where I over indulged. On good food, but still too much. Dust off and keep it going is all we can do. If we are consistent, those calories will take care of themselves.

Have a fun crazy day

Sunday, May 29, 2011

It's Sunday. Depends on your calendar, either the start of the week or the end,
either way have a good one. Have a fun and crazy afternoon.

It's a good way to leave off tension and stress: picnics, parks, a trip to the beach or mountain.

Just take the time:

The beach is my favorite place to be:

Don'tcha love the Irish?

What I'm actually saying is if you aren't where you want to be, you can always start over after taking a break to recoop and refresh. Start anew.

    Way to work in those pics! I love the beach, too...would love it even more if I could find these guys there! emoticon

Great message...so often we waste time beating ourselves up over what we did yesterday, instead of just focusing on getting it right today. Which is why I so often quote Scarlett O'Hara: "After all, tomorrow IS another day!"

Make it a *Spark*ly one!
