MY SHIP OF FRIENDS ON SPARK. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER~
Another month is about to be over. I happy with my fitness accomplishment. I am losing inches. I hid the scale and pulled it out all weekend.
I'm making better food choices and lost 1lbs according to the hidden scale.
No matter what happened all month long lets take this week and just work harder and stronger than we've ever. Don't let past mistakes or failures get you down.
This Journey is one day at a time and let's do it one day at a time.
We all are Winners and NOTHING can stop us NOW!
Get in there and Dig Deep.
We were created to be Successful in EVERY endeavor of life. So...Just Do It~~~
Love You Much!
Oh How He Loves Us!
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.
- Mark Twain, writer and satirist
On this Journey and Life period it's very important that we surround ourselves with those who are for us and will speak Life into us. We never need those who belittle what we do or who we are.
We are Created for Success and to be a Light to the World. Some People don't like when others succeed. We have to keep away from those who eat away at who we are and what we are doing.
When you do that you will find that your heart feels Fresh. Don't put up with what you have control of. You have Control of Your Life. Keep it filled with Peace. Joy. Love.
Have a Great Week! Many Blessings for You All to Have a Great Journey.
Do Not EVER Give Up on Yourself. You are Worth the Effort You Put out Daily for Health and Fitness Benefits. I'm Cheering For Us All!
I am so excited to let you know that I completed the 5k under the time I trained at. I use my Ipod when I workout and I keep in beat of whatever song is playing. That makes my time longer. But I was able to complete my walk/jog at the High School track in 61 mins. Even with the knee I jogged my even laps and race walked the others. I thank God for the strength to just get out there and do it.
Next is to get my time down and pump up my music!
Thank You Spark Family for all of your confidence and support in me. I am so overwhelmed by so much Love you Always show me. This is a Team effort and I love the motivation and encouragement that you bring to my journey.
Let's keep beating our past triumphs to better ourselves even more. I love competing with me! It makes it such a special thing to do.
Love You much and Have a Blessed and Prosperous Day filled With ALL the FULLNESS of GOD!
Today I will be completing my first 5K. Walk/Jog but mostly walking which would make my time a little longer. But I'll find out once I start it how my knee reacts today.
I've been training good this week and my endurance is building. If you haven't check out the Virtual Race center on Spark and see if there are any that you might be interested in. There are also training teams that you can join also before you actually go out and complete your race.
How has your week been going? Enjoy the weekend and family and friends.
Do something great for yourself today!
Keep your heads up and remember that I'm Praying for You and You are All Winners!
How has everyone been perking this first seven days of April. Before we know it it will be May. This year is Flying by and hopefully a lot of pounds, inches, bad habits etc.
I've been thinking about those words for a couple of months.
Mindless: Without thinking.
Endless: Never Ending.
Bottomless: Not measured.
My definitions of course but we all have seen the commercials or read the coupons in our mail boxes.
I used to LOVE to go and eat at ALL YOU CAN EAT restaurants. I never choose one of those now. What's the use? I remember piling my plate so full then getting mad because the food became cold before I could get to it.
Mindless eating is the only word that I'm fighting at this time and with God's Help it will be conquered all the way. You know...holding the bag of chips while you are watching television or reading or logging. Then you look up and the bag is half empty. OOOPS!
It's easy to stay away from Endless and Bottomless because I don't eat out much and when I do it's take out like Subway or a Taco Bell Fresco(?) item. Just last Saturday I went to Cheddars with my son and his girlfriend.
I had Grilled Tilapia w/grilled shrimp, steamed broccoli and green beans. I had water w/lemon as my drink and I did get me some bread. But I ate my vegetables first then only ate about 1/4 of my meat. I had it in the ice box for a couple of days until I ate it for Breakfast. I felt like a Conqueror. Which I am More than a Conqueror!
There's other words we have to get out of our lives but let's start with these three if we have not beaten them all the way down where they belong. Let's try eating some mindless eating on something like this:
This is an actual salad a friend of mine ate for lunch the other day and uploaded it on Facebook. Now I can eat something like this endless. Also I heard that we should eat something that crunches (vegetables & fruits or nuts) with each meal. Healthy is the word.
Well just wanted to check in and let you know what I'm thinking about and see how everyone is enjoying this beautiful April. Thank God for Thursday! Enjoy your evening.
I think I'm walk/run today and later strength train upper body and core work. I'm doing great on my calories today and that makes me smile.
