Fall Challenge on the way!

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Well once again the 5% challenge has started. I am so happy and excited to get back on track. It is so easy to let life get in the way and not watch what you eat, not work out and just go about without tracking our food intake. emoticon emoticon

Well now that the challenge has started it is a motivator and it gives me a reason to get up and go. Being accountable to others and helping the team inspires me to do something for myself. emoticon emoticon emoticon mm emoticon

My summer was great and although I did stay active I was not as detailed as I should have been. Then vacation time is over and back to work means long hours and the excuse of no time to work out. Well enough of that!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

So today I got up early and went to the gym, I have tracked all my food and have been drinking my water. I am committed to the challenge and to myself. So today is the first day in my journey towards a better me!! Let's Rock!

    I like your attitude, but yes there is a but in here just because there was no challenge on going at the time was no excuse not to track your daily foods. On KEEP WALKING WITH JESUS , I have a topic under the "General Team Discussion Forum" called "WHAT IS YOUR GOALS OR FOCUS FOR THE DAY". Please utilize this tool to help you stay on track. I really want to help keep you on board with tracking your meals with out pushing you into to many challenges as I know that a lot of us are on so many other teams. We can also list our goals and struggles, under another topic and see where we are struggling the most. Ask for help, even in a blog or email. I will be happy to be your cheer leader or seek out the help from a spark coach for you. But, whatever you do, do not slack up on tracking your food. Once we get out of this habit it becomes to easily to slip back into old habits of eating in between meals, going back to fast food restaurants and before you know it your skipping your work outs. Then we wake up and say where did all this weight come from. And we have no one to blame but ourselves. Now get going on that challenge, I am rooting for you!! emoticon emoticon YOU Are emoticon and I am here for You!!
Love always your sister in Christ

5% Summer Challenge as come to an end!

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Well I stayed on through the whole challenge even though the weight results went the opposite direction! emoticon emoticon emoticon

However, I did have a lot of non scale victories and it was the first summer in a longggggg time that I have taken any vacation time alone with just my DH! emoticon So I had a fun summer after three years of non stop stress and family issues! I came back renewed and ready to continue with the issues and my new teaching assignment! emoticon emoticon

So thanks to all the team leaders for their encouragement support and inspiration! Thanks to all my spark friends for being there emoticon m emoticon

I am definitely preparing myself for the next challenge and will not give up no matter what! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We SO deserved those nice long vacations...ours was SO much fun I'm SO happy that we did it! Even though I ate myself through it and now I'm back up to the same stinky starting weight I was last challenge.

This time I'm going to push myself more for 'sustained' exercise...that's the TICKET! emoticon emoticon

    Getting time away from everything and having some time alone with your hubby and stress can make you feel refreshed. Ready to take on the stresses of your everyday life when you get back. It sounds like this summer and vacation time was just what the doctor ordered. emoticon I'm sure you'll do better in the fall 5% challenge. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

First Day of School!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

WOW! I am totally exhausted but so satisfied after my first day as a 2nd grade teacher! emoticon m emoticon I had gotten used to my 4th grader and I forgot how many questions you get from a 2nd grader - so that was fun - but they are all so precious and willing to please that it makes up for the extra questions. emoticon emoticon emoticon I even had a student bring me an apple we just made it so special!

Today was collecting supplies, getting their desk and cubbies set up and go over classroom procedures! Of course all this was happening and we had a surprise visit from our superintendent of schools. The kids were great. They greeted him and he is super friendly but that still catches you of guard! emoticon m emoticon emoticon Well they are gone and now I need to organize my things and maybe I can leave before 6pm and be ready for the 180 days that follow! emoticon m emoticon emoticon

So let the fun continue and let the learning begin!

    Fantastic....first day done and dusted! emoticon emoticon You are a WONDERFUL teacher and I just know you will love your sweet little ones!

It's good the super~ came the first day....hopefully you won't have to worry about him popping in for a long time now...although whenever he drops in he'll see a super successful teacher and her happy little students! emoticon

An apple....isn't that the cutest? emoticon Have some tea with it and relax! emoticon

    1/2 lb lost is great! If you lose a half pound every week that 26 lbs at the end. But I know you'll see more lbs come off next week.

Ok today was weigh in day emoticon emoticon and I knew what was coming! So I did not get upset emoticon emoticon I told myself if you do the crime you pay the time! emoticon m emoticon emoticon So the results are what I expected but I have to confess that this has been the best summer vacation and time I have had in a long, long, long time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So now I am back home, back at work and today when I walked into the gym the equipment and machines were happy to see me! emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon They were all wondering where I was hiding!

So yes I am back on the horse and ready to get serious again. I know it was so easy to put on the weight - emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon let's see if I can make it easy to take off or at least I will try my hardest!!! emoticon
