"A Year From Now, You Will Wish You Had Started Today"

Friday, November 07, 2014

It is this very thought that has driven me for the past 6 months and 18 pounds. I am not going to regret one more day or one more year wasted.

7 days of JS FFW! Wow and that just proves my point, not 7 days wasted and spent toiling in disbelief but 7 days of hard work and results.

Today I am:

Tracking every BLT and keeping it under 1400. I have dinner planned with a friend which will include drinks and good food and will still stay under my 1400. emoticon

Working out with Jessica Smith.

Walking and maybe some more walking for that little extra calorie burn and good mental health. It is good to stand up, push away from the desk and head out for an adventure.

Sounds like a plan Stan.

    Seven awesome days of doing what's good and healthy for YOU!!

This quote was on a postcard I got in my zulily order yesterday. It's written on a mirror and says "YOU are a beautiful work in progress"!! I"m going to color it in and stick it on my real mirror as a reminder, but just wanted you to know that YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL WORK IN PROGRESS!

I can't believe it has almost been a week of JS's Challenge and I am feeling awesome. I have found that "spark" I was looking for. Just a little something new can make a emoticon huge difference.

I did the Sunset walk today and it was perfect. Not too much and not too little.

I did push rewind for a total of 44 minutes.

Sticking with > 1,400 calories a day and not starving.

Thanks to Gina I checked out my BMR and it is 1327. Dangit, I wanted it to be oh say 2,000. emoticon

It is a good week in the neighborhood.

Jessica Smith's Fall Fit Challenge day #4 is in the bag! I did:

Walk with Jessica for 45 minutes.
Calories in less than 1,400
Walked the halls for 20 minutes
10 rounds around the core throughout the day.

My body is tired from all of the activity BUT I have lost 2.4 pounds this week.

My Plan!

Monday, November 03, 2014

I am ready to knock my weight loss out of the park in November and I happen to have a plan to make that happen. This will involve two components for my success:

1) Track every BLT every day and keep it under 1,400.

2) Fitness and here is my plan for November.

1) 2,000 intentional fitness minutes for the month of November. emoticon

2) Burn 10,000 calories in the NovemBURN Challenge.

3) Turbo Fire three days every week. emoticon

4) Walk with Jessica Smith six days every week. emoticon

5) Stand up, push away from my desk and walk around my core area 10 times every week day.

6) Take a 20 minute walk every morning. (I use this to wake up) emoticon

I would like to see my BMI which is currently 28 go down, down, down.

I will be checking back in every week to update my progress and keep accountable as November is my month to see some serious results.

Today I am walking with Jessica and here is my work out:

Big shout out to Gina (MAMACAPPI) for getting me onto this one. You are my inspiration!!!

Ready, set and GO

Power Thru It!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

In the world of bikers emoticon it is generally known that you never ever stop on a curve and you always stop with your front wheel straight. You do these things to ensure that you stay upright when stopping.

Last year while riding to work I was cut off by a car turning into my lane while I was executing a right hand turn. I was forced to slam on my brakes in the middle of my turn which meant that my front wheel was not straight. To make matters worse the road was graded down to my right which means that my very short legs cannot touch down and have my bike straight up at the same time.

I found myself in a very very difficult position in that my bike was beyond the point of no return and we were definitely going down. Dangit I hate the going down part.

My pseudo self “Ms. Bad "A" Biker Chick” took over and handled the situation. I remember the moment vividly while time stood still and I felt that every car at the corner and in the intersection were watching us as we attempted to power my bike back up to an upright position. I held on with every bit of strength that I could find and pulled with ever fiber of my being. Slowly a mm at a time we powered back up and I distinctly remember that second when we were just beyond that point of no return and the split second when we were upright again. My foot was barely touching the road surface and I was on tip toe but we were upright and safe. I could feel everyone in that intersection shouting hooray for me. It was a moment of total power and Ms. Biker Chick did the job and did it well.

I could have easily forgotten the moment except the next day every muscle in my upper body hurt and I knew that Ms. Biker Chick and pure adrenalin had saved the day.

The analogy here you ask? Never ever give up, reach down into every fiber of your being and power yourself back up until you are in the safe zone and moving forward again. You know you can do it and you will! emoticon
