Hello Sparkfriends!!! Hope you have been having a GREAT WEEK!
My days are filled with the outside. The Sun and beautiful days. The temps have been in the upper 60's and expecting 75 today to continue on through the weekend!
Woke up early on Tuesday and worked out with the Lord doing mini tramp jogging and walking then I worked out my lower body. I actually did a little Circuit Training. Then I went outside and ran and walked in that order. I surprised myself.
I realized when I was running that it's in mind. I have to want to run and just do it and not stop too soon. I did it and it was so fulfilling. A friend told me that I was already a runner when I told them about my goal. I am a RUNNER and I love it.
This morning I did speed walking instead of walking because I chose the wrong shoe.
I still can do some walking and running later today. Well I need to get some work done. Been slacking a little but it's all right. I'm my own boss. lol
Remember you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to do. We are conquering everything that stands in our way of Success!!!
Have a GREAT DAY!
P.S. Thanks everyone for the Valentine's Goodies!!! Love you ALL!
God Bless Your Special Day of Love. Of course, Every day is a time for Love. We must Show Love to Get Love. Just like being a friend. Must show ourselves to be friendly.
I had a video of myself I tried to post earlier but apparently that 2min video was too much to download. I couldn't even put it on an email. Go figure!
But To ALL of you I love you and want you to know that you all are very special to me and this journey of a lifetime. It's so nice to have real friends...and we don't ever have to meet. I know you are truly behind me and this journey. I am behind you and this journey.
CHOCOLATE CAN'T/WON'T STOP US!!!
So I'm sending you this Valentine of Happiness and Great Love. Sprinkled with EVERYTHING that JESUS has for you as up Above.(On earth as it is en Heaven!)
Many Blessings for a Lovely Day...Evening! Celebrate Each other Couples! Love Yourselves Truly Singles!
Ok...As part of my workout I walk to the Post Office to get my mail on the days I can get out and walk. So I have not been to the box in almost a week.
So I'm checking out all of this mail and notice that I have a CD. No return name just the zip it was mailed from (lol@SparkPeople). I didn't recognize the zip code because I have received little books and CD's from others. But I did not even remember that I was waiting for that DVD. Even with all this Sleet and Snow around the Country it came on Friday!
Well...it's a TRUE GODSEND! SPARKPEOPLE CARDIO BLAST. Let me tell you what's on it:
1.Walk It Out
2.80's Aerobic Workout
3.Cardio Kickboxing Workout
4.Hop To It Workout
5.Jump Rope Workout
The Entire DVD is 1hr and 10 mins. You have the option to do choose one or all of them. I call myself just watching at first to see what was going on and WoW...I did the 80's and Kickboxing. Coach Nicole is GREAT! She looks so beautiful too. And on that BootCamp Video she worked hard. Well She always Work hard. THANKS COACH NICOLE.
So I believe I am truly back to my Cardio Self.
A BIG UPS FOR SPARKPEOPLE AND ALL THE EFFORTS THEY DO FOR US SPARKPEOPLE MEMBERS. THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE I'D RATHER BE.
Blessings and Have the Best Weekend Ever All!
I Love You and Pray for you Often!
Trying (but failing) to see your goals realized can be frustrating. Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You've got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after millions of years as a lump of coal.
(From today's Healthy Reflection e-mail)
We have to keep pushing. No matter what may hinder our paths we must keep going forward. Staying connected to Spark and our friends is a vital part of this journey. I know for myself that the more I am encouraged and motivated by others the harder I work to meet all my goals.
Our goals are obtainable. So we can't and won't give up now. I have friends that PERSEVERE! Can I hear WE finish everything that we start. We ARE WINNERS NOW! Don't wait till the battle is over...SHOUT NOW!!!
Yesterday we had more ice and snow. No school. But I was ramped up. I had a great Tuesday night sleep. I fell asleep before 9pm.
Woke up and drank a cup of tea.
Strength trained my upper body and core.
Walked, Jogged, Kick Boxed and Danced on that mini tramp!
This all started at 6:30 in the morning. I love early morning workouts. That strength training was so energizing!
Had great meals...but I did eat something unhealthy. Yet...I got on that mini tramp to work it out. I'm getting where I need to be and I won't give up. I'm a WINNER and I will not stop no matter what. I will obtain my goal weight in Jesus Name!!!
How are you ALL doing on this great and glorious day that The Lord Made and I know You are Rejoicing and Glad for it!!! I am.
What a GREAT time to be Alive! So much to do and succeed in.
I survived that Superbowl game...my Steelers lost but it was a great game and they came back in that second half.
Of course, I watched the Closer and turned back during the commercials. I was also cooking dinner at the same time so I was quite busy. I did great on the eating just ate more protein than I should but oh well...
Making this week count and I know you are too. Started today with Oatmeal and Almond milk for breakfast. Had whole kernel corn and a small piece of baked chicken breast and a Chewy granola bar for lunch. For dinner I will have Chicken breast, spinach, cantaloupe and more corn.
Working out will be walking with Leslie. Love her so much! And a bit of Strength work!
Blessings for a Great week! If you messed up on the weekend, pick yourself back up and get back on that track. You are a WINNER!
