Ruby's 11th Birthday Party

Sunday, October 05, 2014

I'm posting for those of you that were interested to see how her birthday cake turned out. We had a super day, the weather cooperated and everyone had a great time. Oh and the cake turned out adorable!
we had cupcakes too:
Here are some of our attendees (most are related to us!)
Here's dear Ruby while we sing to her and blowing out her candles

This last one is priceless! Ruby's Grandpa gave her the tablet he bought for himself but never uses. Look at the kids' faces! Too funny! It was a wonderful party!

BLC 26 Expectations

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

This isn't just the beginning of a new round for me, it is the beginning of several months of temptations. It has taken me some time to realize that I always go into a tail spin in the fall heading into the holidays. I want to use this round to get my healthy habits in place so I can succeed for the remainder of the year.

I watched last week's Biggest Loser show and it was all about facing fears and working on the inner person, not just eating healthy and working out. I feel like this is the puzzle piece that is really missing for me. I need to take a good long look at myself and figure out why I keep losing and gaining. I expect to focus on this topic for the next 12 weeks by reading SP articles on the topic and blogging.

For this round, I will:

track my food everyday
work out at least 20 minutes 5 days per week
go for maximum points in all challenges
blog about my progress and emotions at least once per week

So instead of this being the beginning of a downward spiral, I expect this to be the beginning of me being in control of my health!

    You can do it! And you are definitely not alone in struggling with treats etc. during the upcoming holidays. I think you are wise to focus on understanding the underlying issues, not just food and exercise.

BLC25 Week 12

Monday, July 21, 2014

The best thing about this round for me was joining a new team and getting to know some new SparkFriends. It's been a busy 12 weeks and I haven't been around as much as I would like to but I know I can still come to the boards and check in with everyone. I found out that I do well with self made challenges, as long as I am honest with myself about what I need to work on!

My NSV for this challenge: even though I was out of town from Thursday until Sunday, I still did what I could for the challenge so I would get some points for participation! It would have been so easy to make excuses and not make an effort but I am slowly realizing that the only one I hurt by making choices like that is myself.

My plan for between rounds (which will include a vacation):

Consistently exercise 60 min per day, 5 days per week; can be Cardio, ST, yoga or a combination of all three
Continue to log all food and beverages and work on staying in my calorie range
Log in to SP each day to track my progress
keep working towards 100 pushups!

    I'm glad that I was on the team with you, though I was also not around as much as I'd like. It sounds like CAMO was a really good fit for you.
