Starting Over, Again and Again and Again.....

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I started looking back to where I was last year at this time and I get really disappointed in myself. I worked so so hard to lose weight before I took my cruise. I changed my eating habits. I stopped drinking sodas and increased the water. I was actually loving water. All that to end up in the same boat!

I started the 6 Week Spring Makeover Bootcamp again. This time I am 0.4 oz lighter than last year.

Yesterday I really had to sit and ask myself "What's different this time?" What's going to make me stay consistent? Do I really want to work hard to let go again?

Well.... NO! This time I am DETERMINED to make my changes become a complete change. This time I know my strengths. This time I know I can pick up and keep going. This time I know there will be days I mess up but I can't let that one day turn into two, three, or more. I felt so good last year. My legs were not hurting. I was wearing my lil dresses. I was eating healthier.

So instead of beating myself up, I am learning and moving forward. I am on the road set before me to completeness because I am making THIS YEAR, MY YEAR!!!! emoticon

    I can totally relate to your blog. I keep praying that this time that I start will be my last "restart" and I won't go along with it for a few weeks only to stop. I know that you can get to your goals, one step at a time. Don't get too down on yourself, just keep going.

    You can do it! I don't know where this quote comes from but I love it: "You may not be able to go back and make a brand new start but you can start now and make a brand new end."

Be blessed!

4 Weeks of Bootcamp Workouts

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Well I have successfully completed 4 weeks!

1. I'm have lost 9.6 lbs so far in the 4 weeks... WOO HOO...
2. I have begun to SEE & FEEL major differences in my body. This is awesome!
3. I love the trainers that are working with us. They are always pushing us to give our personal best.
4. I can fit a size smaller pants. The ones I were in can come off without unbuttoning them.
5. Walking up the stairs to work don't even bother me any more.
6. Took nephew on field trip with me to the aquiarium...was able to run with him up the stairs and pack him when he got tired.... ALL without me getting winded!
7. Did drink a Diet Dr. Pepper but it just didn't taste right any more... YUCK... Loving my water!
8. Did have lots of Easter candy left out from the kids. Only grabbed one pack of mini skittles, ate them, and never thought twice about going back for another. See I used to be on who couldn't pass by candy without eating lots of it.
9. Contemplating now on exactly what classes I will continue to be a part of once this Bootcamp is over! (Went into it only to shed a few pounds for my cruse....)
10. After completing Spin class the very first time, I was wiped out. I never thought I would be able to do all those standing and sitting and standing and sitting. Well, I didn't let the obstacles of round 1 stop me. I went back to conquer it and I AM LOVING SPIN CLASS!!!!!

emoticon Gaining energy that I never felt before! Transforming me.....

Yesterday finally came... It was the first day of the 6 week Spring Makeover Challenge! I was so excited to begin this challenge. I always seem to drop off bc I have no accountability to anyone. Well... what I was missing is that I do have accountability to someone. I have accoutability to God. He has given me life. He has given me the ability to do his works. Signing up for this challenge was the moment I choose LIFE!

They say it only takes 30 days to start a new habit! I'm ready to not just lose weight but Lose the excuses. Lose the procrastination. Lose the thighs rubbing together. Lose the unhappiness when I try on new cloths. Lose the ucky feeling when I see myself in the mirror or pics. Instead I will....Regain my life. Smile more. Move more. Live more. Love more.... and finally get to feel that moment of walking without my thighs rubbing.

    This is SO TRUE!! Great blog! That's what made me get my act together, knowing that God could put me on my death bed at any moment if I don't start treating my body as His temple!

Starting over and over and over and.....

Monday, February 08, 2010

I'm done with starting over again and again! New Year's Eve as I sat in church service, the visiting pastor said something that has stuck to me since that moment. When we make decisions this year, they are not only for 2010 BUT for this whole decade to come. He asked if we wanted to be in the same place in the next years to come. I had never looked at New Year's Resolutions or Goals in that manner. I have spent the last 5 yrs of my life receiving very powerful teachings of the Word of God. Yet, I never took time to build an intimate relationship with God. He has been there for me through so much.

When I first met my spiritual mother, she said I was like a flower blossoming from the Word of God. Well that night as I heard those words from that Pastor's mouth, God began to show me myself through a flower. I was receiving the Sunlight (God's word) from my pastor BUT I was not getting watered (I was not meditating the word and getting it inside to my roots). So, since I was not getting watered... I began drying out.

I had revelation of life that night. When we say God shall supply all my needs, do we really believe it? No weapon formed against me shall prosper, do we believe it? My decision of totally surrendering my life was a BIG step in my life. And I have begun to add water to that flower and it has brought it back to life.

Starting over may be true, because I let life and the circumstances of it knock me off track. But I had to go back....go back to that place where I fell off. When I found it I started over. I'm not perfect, but I will not let circumstances (I call them 'smoke screens' ) take me off my path. He has already given me the victory in ALL situations. Just because something may be trying to block the view, don't mean your victory is not on the other side. It just mean you have to
stand strong...Put your defroster on... Your windows will have to clear up.

I'm not rushing my weight loss, NO QUICK FIXES FOR ME. I want to make changes for a lifetime and not for a day. I want to love me now, so that when I do hit my goal I can appreciate my hard work.

Be blessed because I know I am blessed!!!! emoticon

    Trusting that the desire to please God pleases God! You are not alone on this carousel...I could have written a very similar blog. The enemy wants us distracted. Here's to putting our eyes on JESUS and keeping our focus on HIS prize! Blessings, my sista!

    Amen!!!!!! my sister, you have got it!!!!! A lot of times we are walking around with our head in the clouds. Well now it has hit you like a ton of bricks and you are feeling what God wants you to feel. I pray and will contuine to pray that on this journey we can do this!!!!! One thing about this site, everyone is here for you and no one is pointing fingers at you , but holding your hand and saying we can do this together. The support is out of this world. Sometimes I have felt more support from here than I have at home. We have our ups and downs, but don't stay there, get up and do your best!!!!! I love you in Christ!!!!!!
