I've got to be realistic that I don't think I'm going to reach my original goal of 98 lbs. It is going slower and time is running out; we only have 12-weeks altogether.
I know I'm not doing all that I was doing back when I lost all my weight and inches. I don't have all the time I did back then, but I need to concentrate on what is my main priority, lose weight or inches. I think the inches will help me fit better into my clothes, so strength training should be upper most on my schedule.
The 100s/GYM has given me loads of strength training info. The Boot Camp is another forum to follow.
Just put my mind and effort into it.

Re: What is Going On in the World Around Us?

Saturday, February 27, 2010

What is going on? Is it just me that feels there's an awful lot of devastation around us. For me, lately, it started with the young Luge guy at the Olympics dying. A skater lost her mom to a massive heart attack, just 2-days before she had to skate. Now earthquakes and Tsunamis. It just said on the news that Japan may get what we thought Hawaii would experience. USA was lucky.

I heard that Argentina had an earthquake as well as Chili.

I feel so bad for the families of those who died. The Luger's parents probably said, 'Good luck, have fun, see you when you come home, with or without a medal'. Never did they think their son would come home in a coffin.

The ice skater probably had plans to have dinner with her parents, maybe shopping, seeing the other events at the Olympics. Seeing her parents in the stand after she skates. But no, just her dad. Her mom was just 55 years old. I cried through her routine.
My heart breaks for family and friends.

God is still trying to get our attention, 'Pull your life together before it is too late'.
They've been saying, for a long time, that we are living in the end times. Someday the Rapture will come and all the saved in Jesus will go home to be with him.

As a Christian, I do believe that Jesus is God's son. By believing and confessing we will be saved and go to heaven when we die.

I know, some people don't believe that, but if I am.....where will you be when you die? Don't need to answer. Just blogging my thoughts.

Most of the stories in the news haven't been exactly uplifting, have they?

    We don't know what God's plans are, but He does. We just need to put our trust in Him. Pray for the people affected by these tragedies.

The news stories lately have been very sad and disturbing, indeed ! I agree
that God is definitely trying to get people to see the light, before it is too late !
Isn't there any good news out there, anymore ?

My Bad ~ BLC#12 SPRING Challenge #2 blog

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Okay, so I wasn't so gung-ho on the exercising today. I've been watching tv news about the possible Tsunami, so glad what we expected didn't take place. Things could have been worse. I think God is trying to tell us something. So many things happening in the world.

I should have been exercising while watching tv. I won't get the minutes in that I had yesterday. Tomorrow, I must do better and stay off of facebook until I have accomplished something substantial. I ended up redoing FarmTown because I bought a dairy barn. Geesh!

A year ago I weighed 93 lbs, now I'm around 109. Then I was doing a Wii Challenge and it helped me lose inches. Along with the treadmill and other routines. If only I would have started back on my routine when I started to gain, but no, I was too lazy.

By the end of this BLC round, I plan to be able to fit into my jeans and be as close to my goal weight of 98 lbs. If I was 5'5", I wonder if my weight would be shifted around so I would be skinny? Maybe most of my inches would be in my....bra! Couldn't hurt. I use to say I was an A-- cup.
Oh well, I'll try to do better tomorrow. I still have time to put in some more minutes tonight.

You'll do better tomorrow, Courti.....and you did have a few minutes later
tonight to squeeze in an exercise here or there ! I too find that I have to do my
cardio before I go to the computer, or else it might not get done ! How in the
world did people survive years ago without FB ? LOL emoticon

BLC#12 SPRING Challenge --1

Friday, February 26, 2010

Our SPRING challenge sounds like a pretty good challenge.
S~Share. Make a blog.
P~Pump it up with strength training
R~Rest, 6 or more hours a night
I~Inclue cardio
N~Nutrition, stay in range
G~Get hydrated, 8 glasses a day.

I think I will be able to do most of them except the Rest. Being a caregiver to my mom, I have to get up during the night sometimes. It is hard to get back to sleep. She doesn't go to bed until around 11:30 at night. She does a lot of sleeping in her chair so, if I'm pre-occupied with doing something...like Facebook, it may be later getting her to bed.

I am also on another challenge with the Weekend Challenge team...LOSE. Have to count certain strength training. Two birds with one stone! Count the minutes for BLC and the reps for Weekend C.

I look forward to these challenges to hopefully get back into shape like I was a year ago. I look forward to the eating challenges so I will eat more fruit and veggies and for the cardio/strength challenges.

Correction on minutes of exercises

Thursday, February 25, 2010

I've made some major bloopers in my numbers of exercies. It has been on the some cardio. I mistakenly counted the reps instead of minurtes. I have corrected and will make up the minutes and not count them so all will be fair.

I hate when I do stupid things like this. I'll do some yard work or heavy duty house cleaning and not count it on the tracker.

I don't get a long very well with numbers. Sorry. I did make corrections on tracker.

You know, maybe I haven't been making a mistake. Where I thought I did, the exercises were posted to the Quick tracker and I used a timer. I made the mistake on the cardio at the bottom of the Fitness page.
Where do they track our minutes? On the part at the top where we post all our minutes or at the bottom where we breakout our strength and cardio exercises?
I have been posting correctly at the top.

    Shoot, I'll make up some extra exercises each day to make up the extra minutes posted. I'll only post on the quick tracker. I clicked the bottom where Couch Nicole explains but she didn't go into the Quick Tracker. Thanks a lot.

    I think if you chose to use quick track your done and don't need to track anywhere else. Of course then you don't have a separate record of your cardio minutes.

You can check to see if I'm right. Look at fitness minutes as you track. You might need to refresh the screen to make sure they are updated.

    If the Quick Track figure goes toward our Fitness minutes, then mine are correct. I use a timer. The part at the bottom I goofed a bit where yu only post cardio.
I post strength and cardio on the Quick Track at the top of the page. So I think I'm okay. I panic very easily. lol
I always thought the bottom was a breakout of what we post at the top.
There's no where to post strength minutes on the middle part where you check each strength exercise you do.

Thanks. I think I'm okay.

Should I not post in the cardio at the bottom, under the strength part.

    Quick track is totally separate from the strength and cardio track. Each is a way to add fitness minutes. If you add an exercise with strength and cardio you will get fitness minutes. The cardio translates directly fitness minutes of cardio = fitness minutes. For strength each entry is considered 5 minutes. Quick track is a easier/ faster way to add fitness minutes is you don't want to calculate calories or have a list of the strength exercise done.

If you enter both quick and strength or cardio you'll get double the fitness minutes.
