Soooo not down with this sickness :P

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

I have been sick since Friday! It won't go away! My immune system sucks. lol. I've been taking medicine and its not helping what so ever. My voice likes to come and go as it pleases. lol. Yesterday at work my coworkers would hear me talk and they'd be like, "What the heck happened to your voice?!!?" lol. It's gotten a little better today. I sooo do not want to take a trip to the doctor. More than likely they're just gonna ask what's wrong and give me some scripts. So, I'm really hoping these home meds start kicking in real soon. I do have to admit that this sickness has made me less motivated to work out. I made myself get on the treadmill today cause I am not wanting that ticker to go up this Friday!!!! I want that 5 to stay in there. lol. Wish me luck on keeping up with my fitness and making this sickness go away!!

Hope everyone has a great week :]

    I hope you are feeling better by now! I have the same thing- totally lost my voice, chest is burning- how long did it take you to get over it, and what were you taking for it? I would appreciate any help at this point, as I don't want to go to the doc, either!

Thanks,
Mandy

Week 6 on SP!

Sunday, September 06, 2009

So, I have been on SP for 6 weeks now and I'm down 5.8 pounds :] I'm pretty excited. Tasha just told me the other day that you could tell that I was losing weight so that got me pretty excited! By the way, emoticon to her on getting to her 15 lb mark! I take my measurements tomorrow so hopefully those numbers make me just as excited as the weight number! I am still absolutely loving Spark and the people that I have met on here. They are all just so amazing and are all doing such a great job!

Today was Day 11 on my Shred. It's going great. I love Jillian Michaels. I think I'm gonna look into other workout vidoes she does. Anybody doing any others by her? I've been switching back and forth from Level 1 to Level 2. Haven't gotten the courage yet to up it to Level 3 just yet. That might be in a couple of days though. We'll see how I'm feeling... I barely have a voice and I'm so congested. It's not fun trying to breathe during the workouts. lol.

I am absolutely in love with my HRM! I'm so glad I made the purchase. Tasha was right... its very addicting to have one now. I'm going to try to start doing the calorie deficit thing not that I know how many calories I'm actually burning. I think I understand where all the numbers come from. lol.

My *goal* for this month is to starting running after I put my daughter on the bus and not go back to bed. I just like sleep too much. lol

I hope everyone has a great week :]

    I'm glad you're still loving sparkpeople! I love my HRM too... addicted. It's great to have a real good estimate of the calories I'm burning.

I have Jillians Banish Fat Boost Metabolism. Can't recall if we've discussed. It's definitely tough. It's pretty long and you're moving the whole time but it is one amazing workout. I would say it's comparable to the intensity level of a cardio workout class at a gym, if you've ever taken one. like a cardio kickboxing or something, but it combines a lot of different workout circuits. There are plenty of ways to make it harder or easier as you advance though, you can push yourself as much as you want. I am planning on getting No More Trouble Zones also, i've heard this one is a really great (killer) strength workout.

Congrats on the 5.8 pounds lost so far! I hope you're having a good weekend!

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers...

Monday, August 31, 2009

I just want to thank all of my SP friends for keeping me in their thoughts and prayers. It's very uplifting to get messages from people you really don't even know that show that they care about you.
My bad news was that my 24 year old second cousin from Florida was riding his bicycle and got hit by a car Saturday afternoon. He was in critical condition, on life support and practically prounouced brain dead. Sunday morning the doctors told my family that there was no brain activity at all, so my family had to make the tough decision of pulling the plug. He passed away a little before Sunday afternoon. From what I've been told by my grandma, my aunt (his mom) is doing really bad. She doesn't want to talk to anybody and I'd probably be the same way if I was in her shoes. Her other two children are trying to stay strong for her but I'm sure it's just as tough for them because I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a sibling. So, please also keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks again to everyone of my friends here on SP emoticon

    It is hard, I've lost a brother and a sister, it was hard on my mother, and it took her some time to get over it. Sorry for your loss, hope with time she will start to live again!

    I am so sorry to hear this, so very tragic. That's about my age and I bike all the time and stories like that just terrify me... I'm shaken up a bit. Your family is in my thoughts... I feel awful for his mother, what could be worse than losing a child?

    My cousin was killed in a bike race in Chicago 2 years ago. A truck didn't see them riding and ran him into a street light pole. He died about 2 hours later in the hospital. Sadly, things kinds of things happen all the time and it really sucks. But it teaches us left behind that our lives are incredibly important and there is no time to waste. I can't imagine losing a child, or a sibling, but my heart goes out to your family.

Level 2 on 30DS!

Saturday, August 29, 2009

So, last night I upped my game to Level 2 on my 30DS workout! I absoultely love it better than level 1! lol. I was staying with the beginner's on Level 1 but I decided I wanted to switch up my workout a little bit since I had been doing the same one for 4 days straight. And I'm glad I did because I definitely like Level 2 better than Level 1. I'm still sweating like a pig though. lol. I haven't noticed any results but today when I put on a pair of shorts that are usually pretty tight and I have my jelly roll sticking out the top, there was none of it! It fit very comfortably. I was very excited. I can't wait for my next weigh in and measurements :]
24 more days to go!!!!

Week 5 on SP & Day 5 of 30DS!

Friday, August 28, 2009

Week 5
According to my new scale, I've lost 1.2 pounds since last week! I am so friggin excited that I actually saw a different number this weigh in. I was hoping to be down to 160 this weigh in but that's ok, I'm not too far away from it. This past week I really busted my butt. There was only one night where I went over my calorie intake and that was because I went out and had alcohol. But it's ok because I didn't see 163!
I have to say that I am loving SP! All the encouragement I get from everyone is great. It really does help out a lot. I'm pretty sure if didn't have my SP support I would have done given up by now. So thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone!

Day 5 of 30DS
Today will be Day 5 for my 30 Day Shred. It's been going really well for me. I just want to make sure though, there's not 30 different work outs on this DVD right? its just the 3 different levels? I thought there were going to be 30 different workouts when I bought it so I just want to make sure I'm not missing how to get to the different ones. lol. The Level 1 workout is great. I can totally feel myself getting stronger and not wanting to stop as bad as I wanted to on the first couple days. I can't wait for my results. Only 25 more days!

First Day of Kindergarten
My daughter's first day went great!! I actually did not cry and I just let her go. She told me she had so much fun. She made friends with the two other girls at her table. Abbie is just so excited! Today was the first day she got on the bus. I actually did very good with that too. She did a great job getting on. She's just so excited about all this new school stuff. It's just hard to believe that my daughter is in kindergarten and is soooo ready about it all!

Well hope everyone has a great weekend and they get the results they're wanting too! Thanks again to all my supporters :]

    the way I understood the 30DS was you do each level for 10 days, but I know a lot of people that do each level for 30 days. I'd say just do whatever you are comfortable with. emoticon too!

    You're doing so great, congrats on the weightloss. It's okay to go out and drink now and then. As long as you're healthy MOST of the time it wont have a negative impact in the long run. Gotta have fun!!
I'm glad kindergarten is going well for your daughter... and for you hehe. I'm glad shes making friends.

    I just bought the 30DS and was wondering how other people were liking it. I haven't worked up the nerve to start it yet because I have a feeling that I will be in pain from muscle soreness. Good Luck.
