Angela's Personal Plan of Action & a Year in Review

Sunday, December 30, 2012

December 30, 2012

My POA for the new year but first a look of ONE year to compare.

Weight Down 4 lbs
Neck down 1”
Waist down 8”
Hips down 2”
Thigh down 3.5”
Arm down 2.5”

LOST A TOTAL OF 17 INCHES THIS YEAR (I am actually down a lot more, but using these areas to compare for now), ONLY 4 LBS GONE THIS YEAR. I STILL HAVE LOST A TOTAL OF 80 LBS, SO WILL NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THAT. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Size 10/12 Medium

BMR of 1566.8 down 22.1

Body Fat % of 27.1% down 0.45%

I am happy that I am thinning, but I really want to see the scale move. This year I am still focusing on inches, but more the scale too.

These are my goals, My commitments. I am committed!

I have committed to 5 days a week of fitness.
- Sunday & Tuesday Kickboxing
- Monday Spin & Strength
- Saturday ST and cardio
- Wednesday Zumba

To be accomplished starting as of now.
Eat clean. Re-evaluate my food choices and weed out non-Primal foods. Have been choosing sweets and flour items over the holidays and I feel awful. It is from the food choices I have been making. Too much processed and not enough natural.
Not a choice of have to, I Need to eat clean again.

Long Term Goal
I have 43 lbs to lose to goal. I don’t know if this is realistic or not, its the doctors number not mine. Size wise I don’t know what this would bring me down to a 4? 6? Is this me? I don’t know. But I am going to try.
So my long term goal is to move that scale.
I am on the right track as my inches show.

Like jane we can have some skin cut off or cosmetic surgery?
Good luck Angela! I'm rooting you all the way.

    You will do it all because that's the kind of woman you are. As to goal weight, you're free to set your own. You'll know it when you get there. Everything will come together: weight, overall healthy feeling, an appearance that makes you beam, pride, comfort and confidence within and without, etc. You'll know it.

The Plan works as well as you do...

Thursday, December 27, 2012

The Plan works as well as you do...

My previous blog was about initiating a plan to cope with the holidays. I have to say it worked pretty darn good for the most part.

Of course it is only as good as the person working it and I do have my moments.

Like chocolates, not on Christmas Eve, not on Christmas day... downfall was boxing day!


It was a day of rest and relaxation; putting away gifts and goodies.

Unfortunately we had received chocolates as gifts.

I don't buy, I don't have them on my home.


Well, because of the mindless eating.

One begets two...

Two begets three...

...You get the picture.

Well, they are gone! They are out of here!

I hope it isn't too little too late, but they are gone.

Thank you, thank goodness.

Now I have a plan and am putting that into place.

I have enrolled in 2 classes per week of Kickboxing (Sunday & Tuesday).

I have committed to a Spin & Strength class on Monday evenings.

I have committed to a Zumba class on Wednesdays.

I am committed to working out with a friend on Saturdays.

That is a commitment of 5 days of exercise.

I am sure I can do it.

I am sure I can make it work and make my body work, perhaps even more than the plan.

Hugs and love,

    Easily forgivable to have a sweet slip at this time of year. And just one day, wot the heck, Love!! Your plan helped me VERY much too. Chocolate is not my downfall, but dry cider can be ... so I bought 8 tins of my favourite Irish brand a week ago and enjoyed one a day! Now that, like your goodies, they are GONE, I am not sulking over having denied myself, nor do I miss them at all. Today has been 99% back to paleo, with only a Tbsp of stuffing crumbled into my sauteed veggies tonight. No cravings, no hunger, no guilt ... lovin' the one-day-at-a-time Be Good To Myself plan!

Thanks, as always, for your influence and example. Yeah, you still kinda rock bigtime, eh. Y'DOOOO!

Chalk it up to a Christmas treat and now you are on to bigger and better things - getting skinny in 2013! So proud of you for all you have already accomplished, and I know it's only going to get better from here. Love you!!

YO YO YO!! cough, cough HO HO HO!!

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

It is that time of year for most of us who celebrate Christmas, and for those who celebrate Chanukah, Solstice or just enjoy being with family/friends for the holidays.

Yes that time of socializing with the pitfalls of possible self indulgence.

Possible? Oh yeah...

It is so easy to fall into the YO YO! trap while celebrating your HO HO!

What am I talking about? Well the scale and your weight becomes your yo yo, rising and falling with the choices you make.

Does this make me and you happy to see? No unless it is on the downward side of our weight, then I am very jolly indeed!

But how do we avoid the pitfalls of this holiday season? How do we remain Jolly and retain our HO HO! while losing that YO YO?

That is a tough one, but in a sense not so tough at all.


That doesn't mean we have to deny ourselves everything. If you are dreaming of shortbread and sugar cookies; plum pudding is dancing in your head; your drooling over the thought of Turkey dinner and all that goes with it.


PLAN to have A cookie.

PLAN to have A small piece of plum pudding.

PLAN to have this or that.

PLAN to have what it is you really really want.

And most importantly --


I PLAN to have the turkey, salad, vegetables those are all a go and fit into my plan anyways.

I PLAN to have a piece of pie or a piece of plum pudding. These are not normally in my plan, but by adjusting my food tracker that day I will indulge GUILT FREE.

I Probably won't have wine or alcohol. WHY? Because I CHOOSE NOT TO, as it DOES NOT FIT INTO MY PLAN.


Now this is my plan for Christmas Day, what happens if we go visiting?


Keep it simple. If you plan to indulge make room for it in your daily calorie count.
I will cut back on my Breakfast, lunch and snacks so that I have more wiggle room at Dinner if this is where my PLAN needs to come into play.

It is also easier to bounce back from a day or two of indulgence than it is from a week or more.

I will also PLAN TO EXERCISE to combat this extra intake.

Walk, jog, stretch, strength...whatever you enjoy as long as YOU MOVE.


I am off to run now, followed by cleaning my house and walking the dog.


Together we can Plan and beat the YO YO! and make the HO HO! our focus.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    Angela great blog. Loved it. But, I didn't plan and now I have to figure out how to get back on track. When your a carbs addict it's hard to get back on the wagon after you fall off. Thanks for sharing this with us I wish I had read it earlier. But, I was being bad over the Holidays so I wasn't on here much. Lets ROCK 2013 together and make it to GOAL.

    Good for you! I'm confident that I can stay on plan where exercise is concerned but am a bit worried about my food plan for a few days. We're staying with my mother-in-law and I have no input on the cooking or the food we'll be eating. As a Southern woman, she LOVES casseroles and doesn't serve that many fresh vegetables. I definitely need a solid plan to avoid letting my weight creep up during the visit. Thanks for the reminder of how important this is!

Hi My Friends.
Just finished a painting and am very happy with it.
Not quite sure what to call it...
I am thinking 'Torn'...
Any ideas?

**since I posted I have decided to go with Merrikate's suggestion of 'TORN BEAUTY'. I was partial to torn anyhow because of the torn wing and it is a beauty. Thank you all my dear spark friends.

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Ok strange title...

But for those of you who are my Facebook friends you have the inside scoop.
I am wiggling with excitement!

I have had the honour of being sent an invitation to submit my artwork for perusal to the Calgary Stampede Board for (possible nothing is for sure as of yet) possible acceptance, display and selling abilities.

Not sure if I am making myself clear, but this is a very tight and exclusive art community and to be issued the invite alone is supremely wonderful!

There is one hang up though that almost stopped me in my tracks.

It is this, they want to see my western artwork by January 3!!! That is less than 2 months away!! I paint everything and anything not just western, so I am limited in that area. I have to paint like crazy over the next few weeks, not to mention deal with Christmas; a number of other art shows I am in; and life in general.

When I first read this, I thought 'Oh well, nice but no go...'

Then I kicked myself in the hind end and said:

Well I know the answer to that! LOL!

Well you are right again my friends.

It is better to try and do your best than give up before you have begun.

Hugs and love,

    I wouldn't have said "No excuses." I do say, "Holy cow, Cowgirl, git to paintin'!" It never would have occurred to me that the Stampede has an art show, but it makes sense. Schedule yourself well and strictly. You can decompress and rest later.

    Oh wow -- wow! How supremely cool, Kiddo! THE STAMPEDE ART SHOW?!! Holy moly to murgatroyd -- this is Bi-i-i-g all right.

Yes, you of all people can create and submit in good time, and will nail that acceptance too. What's more you'll love the challenge.

My only concern is that now you're motivating YOURSELF so brilliantly by internalizing your SP Cheerleaders to overcome doubts that you won't need us'ns any more ... oh heck, of course you will. We supply the hugs and the lovely applause!!

GOOD ON YOU, Angel-Artist!!
