It's so amazing how being added as a friend can make me so very happy and motivated for success. I believe that this journey is a community journey and we need each other to succeed.
We all should know that people who are involved in a community like SparkPeople are more likely to meet their health and fitness goals and maintain them.
So I feel surrounded by so much love. I love friends. I need friends. I appreciate all of my friends. As we travel down this road with different personal goals, we ALL have the same goal...TO GET TO THE FINISH LINE.
What I want to say to my new Friends...Glad to Have You On board the Love Boat.
To my old friends...So Happy You are Still Holding it Down Faithfully.
I am humbled and love to be accountable. Today I took a slow walk and jumped a few times on that mini tramp. I had my 5 fruits and veggies today and I have breathed deeply. lol Have a couple more glasses of water to drink and another snack. Yes I eat late because my meals are normally eaten late. (YOU KNOW YOUR BODY DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS WHEN YOU EAT AND IT METABOLISES YOUR FOOD THE SAME WAY MORNING NOON OR NIGHT?)
I do try to eat something light the later it gets. Don't want my digestive system to have to work too hard as I prepare to go to sleep.
Again... to my new friends and to my old faithful friends. We are a goal getting kind of group!
One more thing: You are Required to . Can you do that for me?
Have a great night!
Ok...I've been missin you all. One day without my connection and I go CRAZY!!!
Still not able to connect so I am at the library just to log because I have serious work to do. I am involved in the write a novel in the month of November. That's 50,000 words and 179pages. I am so excited. I started on Thursday and have written 3339 words already. I have a great imagination and a writer by Gift and trade so it's really easy for me to put words together and since you ALL should know I am long winded I will reach my goal before November 30, 2010. Not too late to start: www.nanowrimo.org
Eating was good Thursday and got me some great rebounding time and lower body strength work. Starting the physical therapy next week and wonder how it will be.
Looking forward to meeting my November goals with everyone else. We can do this.
Stay positive and keep SMILING!!!
If you are reading this, you have something to smile about. You made it another day!
God bless you and enjoy Friday!
I'm so Happy to be Alive!!! (DID YOU VOTE TODAY?) God is Good all the time!!!
That's the day I fell in the Drainage Canal...Before...I could have drowned. Thank God I am Saved!
So I have some BIG goals for the month! I will work Hard to get them accomplished. With God ALL things are possible. I'm counting on you to cheer me on as I do the same for you. I will work hard and strong. I'm ready for more results. God is so good to us all. He can make changes happen to your body if you stay in Faith and Love and only Believe!!!
I love my Spark Family. Without you I would not be this far. THANK YOU ALL!!!
It's a great idea to have goals for the month that will get you through the month and the end of the year if necessary! Think Big and go for it!!!
That Giant will not win. That Weapon you have is more Powerful! Use it!
My goals for November:
* Lose 10 lbs this month. I'm dreaming BIG and aiming HIGH
* Eat within my calorie range of 1200-1550.
* Workout doing strength training 5 times a week.
* Cardio as often as possible.
* Increase breathing and stretching exercising.
Blessings to you all for a great healthy and fit month!!!
It was a Great Day today in Tulsa fellowshipping after Church at Panera Bread with a couple of friends.
I had the Soup and 1/2 Sandwich. Soup was lowfat Chicken Tortilla soup and had the plain smoked turkey w/out mayo. Had an apple...then I ate an oatmeal raisin cookie while talking. That will get you all the time...but I'm not going to sweat that. It happens and might even happen again. I love oatmeal raisin cookies.
We left late coming back home from Tulsa mainly my fault for lingering a little longer with my two good friends. But it was a great ride and won't have to go back again for a while.
So How was your day? Did you eat too much at lunch? Miss your breakfast? Ate half the candy you bought to take to your Autumn party or Hallelujah Celebration? Ate your children's candy...almost all of it?
How Did You Do Today? Don't get wiped out about it. Monday is a new day and a new Month for greater goals!
I can too!!!
HAPPY SUNDAY! SMILE GOD LOVES YOU AND I DO TOO.
Been having a great day today. Glorious Wednesday. Having a time going through new friends pages and old friends and knowing I am here for a purpose. And so are each of you!
Encouragement and Motivation is the Push someone might need to get them up out of that rut. Many times I have wanted to throw in the towel when I've made it hard for myself. This is not hard...it's work. No magic Pill Drink Machine or Move will change us over night.
Slow and Steady is sometimes the best way to do this lifestyle change. We have to Quit complaining and just do what we know is right and keep doing the work.
Be happy. God's People are Happy People. He is with us. We are never Alone. I am so happy to be among such wonderful caring people.
You truly are friends who stick closer than any brother. We are making it happen together.
I went and bought more fruits and veggies. Almond milk...love it! I got Multigrain bread to change up because I'm eating so many other items full of Fiber. Don't want to confuse my body.
Don't take for granite the free tools we have to help us be successful people. I know I did in the past but Food Tracker is my friend. lol And I am growing so much reading all the articles. I thank SparkPeople for free workout videos. I am so very thankful for Jesus leading me to this wonderful site. 55 pounds gone and 33 more to go. Miracle. I AM MAKING PROGRESS!!!
