my biggest time waster(s)

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

so looking back on today i realize how much time i have wasted. i spent over an hour just watching tv. Something i wasnt fully interested in. as well as spending a good twenty minutes on ordering avon! I am ashamed lol. But i did get one productive thing done today. I fixed my bike!!! So i am going to try to ride it up to the library tomorrow!! wish me luck!

  


Its getting real!!!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

So i have just realized how wishy washing i was with my weight loss program. I didnt own a scale. (Not one that worked atleast) I wasn't tracking my food. (With the food at work i dont always have exact numbers but i know i can atlest come close) and i wasnt even wearing my pedometer to work. So i have gotten serious. I bought a good scale. I bought a book from prevention. (Worth a shot right? it only cost me about 3 dollars.) And i have started up my goal sheets again. They are cute peices of paper that i printed out my goals on Each one runs for one month. From the first to the 30th. (Or 28th or 31st. Depending on the month) and i am starting a motivational wall. (Well door) On my closet doors i am going to have a "Garden" I create a center of a flower with paper with the start date and weight. then i cut out flower petals and color them different colors. Then from now on every time i lose a pound i get to put a petal on my flower. with the date and current weight each flower will be complete once i reach on of my "Mid term" Goals. my first flower will be complete once i reach 290 pounds. Then i start another flower for another goal weight. (To be determined later) that is the picture of the flower as it will be growing. Well i have to get ready for work so i will talk to you guys later. BYE!!!

And the quotes come early

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So i did my mesurements today and i lost 2.5 inches on my hips and 2.5 inches on both thighs!!! So in light of this success i am going to be posting quotes about success. All qoutes are from Quotegarden.com.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. ~Winston Churchill

There is no point at which you can say, "Well, I'm successful now. I might as well take a nap." ~Carrie Fisher

Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it. ~Author Unknown

In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time. ~Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book

Smarts and action are on the same side of the equation where the sum is success. ~Garrett Hazel

I think i will be changing my quote days to either tuesday or wednesday when i have my days off.
Happy losing everybody!!!

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Hey there everybody! Sorry ive been gone so long. I have been working my tail off at work. This week i will have worked 51.5 hours. I am Pooped! But guess what? I am being active all day and the dinner i eat every night is planned out by a nutritionist and is messured! un fortunatly i dont always have the calorie contents for the items im eating though, but the good news is im burning over 2000 calories per day doing what im doing. more when im working a 15-16 hour shift. (About once a week) Im a caregiver and indepenting living trainer. I help mentally and physically disabled adults live their lives in the most independent way possible. I am always on my feet moving around changing people helping cook dinner doing their physical thearapy exersices. When i get home i know ive done a good job because i hurt. I get in the shower and just sit there in the nice hot water. i feel amazing afterward. No quotes today guys sorry. I just wanted an update since its been awhile. I will try to get on tomorrow morning before work and get some qoutes for you guys.

Happy losing. Bre

    Wow! That's awesome. I used to work a hospital, and I'd run around all day, getting charts, running notes, and I wore a pedometer and easily did over 10,000 steps a day. Now, I work a desk job (insert depressing music here) and it's hard to get back into moving. I try to take walks a lot, though.

Congrats on being so active throughout your work day!

Its friday!!

Friday, January 04, 2013

Okay everybody it is friday. Time for quotes and a quick update.

Update first. This week hasnt been bad. I need to learn to spread my calories out a little bit more. And i am going to start doing some yoga before bed and in the morning to help start and end my day more relaxed. Its been a little stressful here. Week 2 at my dads place and i am going to be staying out here unitl i find my own place with this new job. That means dealing with my spoiled loud mouth sister who is constantly bugging me, (Hence the need for yoga and de stressing) Okay now that thats done onto the quotes and then off for a walk.

Quotes. This week. Change. Once again all quotes come from the Quotegarden.com

If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. ~Victor Frankl

You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler. ~Denis Waitley

Change always comes bearing gifts. ~Price Pritchett

Happy losing.
Bre
