Small steps

Thursday, July 17, 2014

HA literally. I went for a 2 mile walk yesterday. It was slow but it was something active. YAY ME. :) Tonight may be tough to get some exercise in but I will do my best. There is always an excitement when you start something new. The trick is to keep going in the middle. That is where I need my spark team to come in and be the encouragement I need to keep going. emoticon

Back at it.

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Well I have lost 30 pounds and proceeded to gain it all back. So time to get back at it and try to get back to something consistant. That is something my life has not been in a long time now. I think that has a lot to do with my time away from Sparkpeople, my horses, etc. I'm feeling frustrated but I know I can turn it around.

Crazy, I know.....

Thursday, October 20, 2011

So I have not blogged in 2 years now. I figured I would let someone know what I am currently up to.

After losing a fair amount of weight (208 down to 173), I slipped into old familiar habbits. I stopped running and exercising all together and went back to eatting horribly. I have since gained all my weight back and then some, packing on 220 pounds. Last year (fall 2010 to be exact) I noticed that my friend's daughter was losing weight and looking great. I inquired as to what she was doing. She replied, "rowing". After doing some digging I found out that Lake Guntersville had started a brand new rowing club and that it was for anyone. I decided to give it a shot and I havent looked back since.

October 15, 2011 was my first Regatta (Race for Rowing). Well my first Regatta went ok, I had some new bruises to show for it. I was exhausted too. :) Our time was 21:40.78 seconds. We were beat by 02:15.27 which was the only other competitor in our division of Mixed Masters 8. The distance was 4500 meter head race (timed race).

As of right now I have not lost any weight but I have slowly began to build muscle. I am hoping to start a good winter regimen for staying in shape for rowing in the spring. We have one more race this year before the season is over. We are training almost everyday for around 30 minutes since that is all the time we have in the evenings with the sun setting so early. I have also managed to talk my husband into rowing as well so that might open up some opportunities for me to get a doubles team going for the spring races.

So thats whats been happening with me. I probably wont be blogging much but I will try to keep you all up to date with the big events.

    Good for you for finding a fitness activity you like! I had to read your blog, because you have the same name as my sister in law! Good luck with your return to Spark People! emoticon

My God is an AWESOME God

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Despite all the stuggles and business in my life, trouble with my parents, mom's troubles, family medical problems, and just general life stresses, God has blessed me with some truly amazing friends. We may not all like the same things, we may not always have time to see each other but when we do it is always enjoyable.

God seems to be working a lot in my life and in the life of my friends. I've seen some changes in a few people that is nothing short of inspirational. I have seen things coming together in ways I never would have expected. I just thought I would share this little bit of inspiration with everyone in hopes that maybe you will find the joys and hopes and happiness in the little things. Sometimes it makes the big problems just dissappear even for a short time.

    Thank you for posting this. When I get wrapped up in my own problems I often forget about what I have to be thankful for.

Hmmm

Thursday, May 07, 2009

So the only thing on my Goals for this year that I seem to be doing right now is getting my finances in order. Although, I agree its a big and important one but man I am still struggling with the rest of it. We are still house hunting and everytime I think we found a house we like my husband is too reluctant to make a move and we end up losing it. I have been running but my food is still troublesome. I have not been exercising my dogs, nor have I been able to do anything with my horses which is just rediculous. Its been so rainy here the ground is just supersaturated right now.

I still keep going back and forth with finding a house with land vs living in the city and a neighborhood. I dont want to have to board my horses anywhere. And if I get stuck with having to board its likely I will have to sell one of them due to not being able to afford boarding costs in my area. I know God has a plan for me, I just have to hold tight. Its just so hard, we have been looking since January and here it is May.
