A Fresh Start

Saturday, July 12, 2008

Today is the first day of the rest of my life & that's my daily mantra to myself. To take this day & make it better lived than the last. Unfortunately these last few days have been filled with sweets & more sweets. I'm still getting my fruits & veggies but its not enough to cover all those other carbs. I'm that woman the Special K2O commercial when sweets are going to threatened your day, well it has taken over! Now I cutting back on healthier foods to make room for my sweets. I know its not good for my health or my teeth but still I yearn for them. . . . Not chocolate cause I can eat that maybe once or twice a week in the mini. Its the Red Vines twisters & Tootsie Roll Dots. I need to do something different a fresh start, any ideas? All comments/suggestions are welcomed!

God bless & Love!!

Dee

    I agree with Marisolp, I didn't think those 100 calorie packs would work, but they have been working so far.

    Try maybe 100 calorie snacks..chew gum or grab a fruit you can do it it take a lot of will power. My down fall is chocalate once that time of the month comes I cant resist and I go crazy I cant have one I can eat the whole bag. But the 100 calorie chocaltes work great with me and I had to have will power so I can cool down and not eat so many. :)Hope that helps

    This has been an exceptional week! I have been working & almost on point with my eating habits. I know I still need to kick the eating habits in the gut but its a long journey & I'm in it to win it! I lost 2lbs but it was water weight. I look forward to the upcoming weeks! I want everyone to push for a special peak in excellence this week. Blessings

    So far this week has been a challenge within its self! I am not losing any pounds but my faith is renewed! Failure for me is not an option . . . I am going to look good, feel good & make my husband & family proud of me! I will do this, I WILL GET THERE: Get Fit! My measurements have remained the same but I feel light as a feather & stiffer than a board! LOL

God bless & LOVE you so much!!

Be encouraged! No matter what!

    This past week I really felt like I took major steps in redefining who I am as far as nutrition & health went. I am still & forever will be a work in progress but I press toward my mark to forever be a better me, mentally, physically & spiritually. I don't want to step onto a scale until this week is over because I am SOOOO bloated & feel like I won't get an accurate read but when I was standing in the mirror, I noticed those salads, Boca burgers, fruits & veggies seemed to be doing their thang! So I wish every happiness & success as we journey through this thing called life. Be passionate about the things you love & recognize those who lift you up daily with prayer & blessings!

God bless & Love!

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!

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.
