Challenge Yourself. . . .

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Good Day Sparkfam! I am up, did some meditation & prayer & some step aerobics with Patrick G on All Star Workouts on FitTv. I see some changes in my body make but I still have not stepped on the scale. I guess its about time, huh? I am trying to challenge myself to make commitments to making & meeting goals I set for myself. So if I am logging in tracking my food & fitness then I am a part of Sparkpeople. I try to motivate my friends, read a few blogs & check out my friend feed. I love the networking I can do, friendships I have forged & the points I obtain. But what is my focus? Am I here to change my mind then my body or do I allow my weakness to control me? Well its about half & half. I know some of you know exactly what I mean. If I read the word but don't keep it in my heart then am I truly a changed person? Am I doing the will of God? Then I need to change the inner workings of me to be the best christian, wife, mother, family member & friend. That takes time & dedication, that's why I am here. Why are you? What changes are you making/made to overcome obstacles like overeating, binge eating, not enough exercise too much exercise or just NO exercise at all. Do you have what it takes to win? Then let's do it!! emoticon Challenge yourself everyday! Celebrate life everyday!

God bless & make it happen!

    emoticon blog , Dee . I have given it a little thought about why I'm here and it is actually to work on the inside and the outside will take shape. In the beginning is was the other way around . I have been inspired by so many wonderful people here and I do know that it will happen. The journey will be very challenging and that's fine because along the way my spirit is being strengthened , too.

We will get there , all of us who are on a mission to get healthy , it will happen . emoticon

    girl one day at at time..we are most impatient creatures.I know I am I want instant size whatever.. Am I going to put in the hard work to get ther YEP! God remembers we are made of the dust of the ground. He sees our efforts, knows our weakness. I am here to get my health back. My weight day is tomorrow. I'll step on with faith knowing that my labors are not in vain. You have any more thoughts on is a cognitive thing. Works on retraining the brain. Mine needs it.

Where Is Your Passion . . .

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Today I got up early, whispered some prayers, read the bible & then got up & did a workout I supposed to do last night. I couldn't cause my daughter & grandson were over. So I enjoyed the visit. So I did also did All Star Workouts Pilates Sculpt & Total Body with Gilad which is equals an hour of fitness plus abs which was 30mins. So I actually have time to do 3hours of fitness in the morning but I am trying to pull back some or else I will burst & become idle once again. I find that my slowing myself down has actually ignited my passion for reading more, researching things more & being open to being out & about. I know, I am not 1000lbs but I some times feel like everybody is watching. Self conscious little twit that I am. Nobody not paying me any attention what so ever. lol

So where is your passion? How do you keep your fire burning? I need to keep my momentum going & I want to stay motivated & to motivate! You guys motivate me! lol

God bless Sparkfam!

I will be out like a light tonight. I better stop drinking water by 8pm or I will up & down all night.

Jimmy Deans . . .

Monday, September 20, 2010

Who would've thunk it? Jimmy Deans making a healthy breakfast sandwich. Well my hubby brought Jimmy Deans D-Lights Turkey sausage, egg white w/cheese on a whole wheat muffin:

Nutrition Facts
Serving Size: 1 sandwich

Amount per Serving
Calories 280 Calories from Fat 90
% Daily Value *
Total Fat 10g 15%
Saturated Fat 4g 20%
Trans Fat 0g
Cholesterol 160mg 53%
Sodium 800mg 33%
Total Carbohydrate 30g 10%
Dietary Fiber 2g 8%
Sugars 3g
Protein 18g 36%
Vitamin A6%
Vitamin C2%
Est. Percent of Calories from:
Fat 32.1% Carbs 42.9%
Protein 25.7%

It was quite tasty & it was almost on the same level as a McDonald Sausage/Egg McMuffin. So I fooled myself & I only ate half because of the salt content. I know I bought soup so I have to half down all of my pre-made meals.

I did 45mins of walking, tonight its 40mins of abs & stretch & Firm Step aerobics. I was supposed to do Boot Camp or strength training workout yesterday but just was a BUM. lol So I did that as well today. I am officially at 90% since getting sick last week. I just my body just said, "Give it a rest already." So I listen & laid around but still did a light cleaning. I couldn't just simply lie around its too hard. . . .In my boot camp dvd Cathe was doing squat thrust & scissors. Man, then she would jump up. I was sweatin like a pig!

Incredible that I was able to do the whole workout! I was determined. . . So onward & upward I go. . .

Its Monday but I don't have a blah or blues about it!

What did you do today that is moving you closer to your goal?! Eating or Exercise . . . .

God bless & Happy Monday Sparkfam!

    *smacking lips*, those sound real good, but I have to really start working on my sodium intake. Lately, I've been having blood pressure readings that I am not proud of. I think what I'll start doing though is to make my own creation of a breakfast sandwich - maybe a lean, turkey sausage patty or turkey bacon strips, Egg Beaters (scrambled or folded), low-fat cheese and those whole wheat, low-fat English muffins. I'm sure that this combination would be lower in sodium. I'm going to try it emoticon!

I did really good yesterday with myself and am proud of myself. Thanks for asking and making us accountable for ourselves.

Have a wonderful day today emoticon!!!

    That sandwich sounded like heaven ALMOST. Isn't it funny how these crazy companies use catch words like LIGHT to try and sway us. Because of health irritants I have to read labels. That salt is a killler HBP. the fat had to come from those biscuits with the butter or whatever they used for making those biscuits. turkey has almost no fat. I too need to cut down on prepackaged foods myself..a challenge indeed. But in pinch I'd try them.

Now I hope you rest. colds have a way to coming back when we don't rest.

    I woke up early this morning. I walked to the library and worked on my novel...finally. That walking seems ok until I get back but God can do anything. That sandwich has too much fat for me and cholesterol, carbs and sodium of course. Why is everything so full of sodium? You sure had a full workout. Rest is a good thing. We should always take rest days on purpose. lol Not forced. Enjoy tonight!!!

    Cathe is fierce, isn't she?

Is the bootcamp DVD one or is it part of a set?

Keep up the great work. You are just working, working, working. I'm glad you're feeling better.

    Yeaa for you! I tried those as well and decided they weren't bad but I don't eat a lot of bread so I didn't buy them again. However, I work with a friend that eats them everyday!

Not Feeling . . .

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

well. . . . . . .

Thank You!
So I am not feeling too good but I am pressing onward. I actually didn't do my workout last night Cathe's Legs & Glutes but did it this morning. Tonight I wanna do Muscle Endurance but I will have to see how my body reacts. I could really go for some chicken & veggie soup. One can could feed me for 4 days. I know I am sick & I am still thinking fugal. lol

It would warm my cold body up that's for sure. I feel achy but that could my workout from yesterday Upper Body. I am getting up & walking around to warm myself & I am doing my butt kicks for my daily Quick Fire Challenge.

I'm gonna need to be doctored on when I get home first & foremost & get some rest & plenty of liquids.
Oh it is Hump Wednesday, don't forget to BUST A MOVE!!!

Watch this:
We don't have to move like her but just move!

God bless & I thank you all for your support!
