Food for Thought or Comfort Food?

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

Today is a beautiful Autumn Day! The sun is shining & the sky is so blue, you would think you could swim in it?! I am here at work with my pervobial "brown paper bag" lunch. The thing is, there is no bag, not for this Girl! I actually am more of a container girl. Meaning, I like these put in there proper places. Bread with bread, fruit with fruit, so on & so on. Today, I have a slice of ham & two slices of cajun turkey on honey wheat bread, cream & whole corn mixed with apple slices. I can take the apple slices & eat throughout the day & feel like I have done something right. I mean, I still have a piece of mini chocolates on my desk but that's not the problem, its the chewy sweet Tootsie Roll Dots gum drop which seem to be my BIGGEST problem!! But I am learning to bring a serving or two instead of two whole packs. Spark has helped add more fruits & veggies, no let me stop, Spark helped ADD fruits & veggies daily to my diet. I looked at those items as occassional treat to be had at dinner. Now instead of a Wendy's single with cheeseburger with fries & a small frosty, I have a whole or half sandwich on wheat breat or honey wheat. I always try to bring my veggies & fruit with me for lunch. Now I laugh to myself because I am now teaching my sons that they should have veggies everyday a couple of times a day alone or with meal. So my question is, Is my food for thought or comfort food becoming way too healthy?! You decide . . . December 11th my goal date to be at my ideal weight but I am learning to love my body in a way that can't be put into words! If I was obsessed before then you have no ideal, how obsessed I am now!

God bless & See you there!

Even the compliments my husband was getting kinda made him happy he chose me too!! But its all in part thanks to!!! My family looked out for me here gave some sense of direction & correction & showed me some moves & now here I am looking fresh even in my old clothes!! I didn't even buy new shoes that's how hot was looking!!! Didn't even have time to get my nails glued on hot!!! So I am going to keep on keeping on the Spark Team cause I'm a movement by myself but I'm a force when we are together!!! You make me so much better!!!!

    Congrats girly! Thats so awesome! I just hope that by the time a reunion rolls around for me that i'll be ready for it (lets see i graduated in 1999 to a 10 year would be in 2 years right?!) I think i can do that! It can be so intimidating to go to those things im sure, but its so cool that you could go and if there was someone there that maybe didn't like you in high school, you could just say "haha look at me!".

Challenging Myself

Monday, August 13, 2007

No one can put you in the gym or buy you a workout dvd and expect you to just workout?! You have to make yourself get up out of the chair & do 2 minutes increments if that's all we can do! I have to make the effort to look good! I maybe cute in the face but oh my waist, my waist is NOT small at all! If only you could burn calories while you sleep? Guess what, you do!! Depending on your height & weight & no eating after 8pm. The body is our temple, how we defile, indulge it and treat it, is completey up to us! I am here, I am ready, I am willing, the rest is up to ME! So I challenge myself to do better with the sweets. Stop purchasing sweets in batches. You can allow yourself 1 box per week.

NO more empty promises!!!

God bless & LOVE!

    Girl, I hear you. I often challenge myself especially with regard to my healthier lifestyle. I set goals and see if I can accomplish them. Sometimes I do and others I don't but I always do better than I did before I acknowledged that my weight had gotten out of control. Best wishes with your challenge.

It's hot in the Chi & I'm trying to keep cool! I want to walk 12 miles but I know that I also need to do it in time. The more I try to relax the more my body screams I should be moving something! So I move it!

Getting in touch with my inner me makes me work harder & harder!

Don't give up because even when I am relaxing my body is burning!

God bless & much love!


Don't Stop, Get it Get it!!!

Seeing the results from walking and working my butt off, not just because its part of the program but because I LOVE IT!! I like seeing the results but I LOVE THE CHALLENGE!! Walking seems so easy and I can do it anywhere, at home, at the office & go for a walk outside. Who knew walking in place could ignite such a flame in me!!! Now I just need to continue my weight training & tae bo and my body will be bodalious!!! So Baby Girl, don't stop!! To all of my fellow spark friends, don't stop & we will disspell the theory that 65-75% of all Americans will be overweight by 2015!!!!
