It's been so long...

Saturday, August 02, 2014

It's been so long that I have posted a blog entry. I have been busy with school and raising my daughter. I am so glad that I am almost done with school! This coming semester is my last semester of college! I cant believe it! emoticon emoticon

Aside from college, I have been working on myself-my body. I have been trying out new forms of exercise. I am also doing some research on eating clean and meal planning. I have been looking at recipes and meal plans the past few days. I feel a bit overwhelmed with all the planning that goes into meal planning, but I am ready to take this step. I feel that eating clean and meal planning will definitely help me reach my goals. emoticon

As far as my progress, I am happy to say that I have finally reached the "under 200" milestone. I weighed myself today and I weigh 196! I am so happy and proud of myself. My end goal is to weigh between 120-140. I have my mind focused on being healthy and at a healthy weight range. I am not really focusing on a certain dress size or how thin I will look.

After I reach my end goal, I plan on toning my body. I plan on focusing on weight training. I am so excited for what the future holds. I am just going to take everything one step at a time. emoticon emoticon

    I say if it feels overwhelming ... take it slower. You don't have to figure it out all at once. Also though, like Sarah mentions, once you start getting it down it gets easier. And ... we'll be here to encourage you too :)

I can tell that a lot of us are really glad to see you posting and becoming active on the team! Goooooo you!

    Woo hoo - you are almost done with school! I have to admit, I'm envious (I still have 2 more terms left.) Congrats on being so close to your goal and on your weight loss!

Welcome to Onederland!!! emoticon It's such an awesome feeling! Congratulations!

Meal Planning is difficult at first, but I promise you, once you get it down, it really can actually alleviate the stress of deciding what's for dinner! :) I started doing meal planning about 2 years ago. It can also help save some money on the budget too.

Congrats again on reaching Onederland!

I'm back!

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have been gone for a while due to school. It was hard for me to log in because of homework, taking care of my daughter, etc. But now, the semester is close to ending and all major assignments have been completed emoticon

I have been working out everyday! I am so happy about that. I was going to the gym everyday, but I decided that I love running and cardio. So I will be going to the gym two days out of the week, running once a week, cardio workouts (Zumba, Spark workout videos,etc) 3 times a week.

I want to start off running once a week and slowly increase it to everyday. With summer coming up, I will have a lot more time to run.

I am excited about this journey I am on. I am glad that I am living a healthier life. emoticon

Awesome!

Monday, January 21, 2013

After I had my daughter, I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Actually, I was a few pounds lighter. It was disappointing to see that I couldn't fit into my old jeans. I thought I would fit in them considering the fact that I weighed less. I realized that I had that extra 'fat'or 'tummy' you get after having a baby. I was so upset.

Since I started SparkPeople, I have been eating healthier and exercising. I tried on one of my old pair of jeans and to my surprise...they fit! They fit a little tight, but I was able to button it up! Before, I couldn't even do that. I am so happy!

Now I am more determined and motivated to eating healthy and exercising! I'm super excited!

Tough One

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Tomorrow I start school. I am excited, but I am not to happy with having to go to school everyday. I have always scheduled all my classes to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, the education classes that I need to take, all seem to be at the same time on Tues/Thurs for this semester. Oh well, I just have to suck it up emoticon

I decided to do a Zumba workout today. Instead of doing a 20 minute workout, I decided to do the 45 minute one. I got to say that it was tough. The first 30 minutes of the workout was great, but I struggled with the last 15 minutes. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Next time, I am going to do a 20-30 minute Zumba workout and build up to the 45 minute one. I don't want to overdo myself. Well I hope everyone has a great day!

**And remember, emoticon

Relaxing Day

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Today was a pretty good day. Aside from doing some chores, I was able to relax and enjoy the day. I was able to go to the park with my husband and daughter. My babygirl had so fun on the swing. After spending some time at the park, we went to my mother-in-law's house. My niece and nephew were there. It is always a joy to see them.

After some family time, I went to H-E-B to do some grocery shopping. I am proud that I followed the advice I received on SparkPeople. I noticed that my cart had a lot more fruit and veggies, as well as, whole grain products. I am excited to try out some recipes that I found on SparkPeople.

I am really glad that I found SparkPeople because it has helped me out a lot on my journey to being healthy. I have realized that I am drinking a lot more water than before. I drink at least 6 cups of water each day. I am trying my best to aim to 8 cups or more a day. I feel motivated to exercise each day and I am being conscious of what I eat throughout the day. I am in a great place right now. I hope that everyone has a great day and keep it up!
