Day 8 of 77: BL Indigo SC ~ Week one results

Friday, March 21, 2014

Yesterday was WI for week one ... I lost .7 pounds. Was I surprised? No, as I didn't really work as hard as I should have. BUT ... I did make some good and positive choices in the right direction. emoticon

The emoticon was out finally yesterday and I got in over 10,000 steps! My goal is 8K so I felt good about that.

One day at a time, one choice at a time!

Hugs, Cookie

Day 7 of 77: BL Indigo SC - Thinking maybe I should build an Arc?

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Okay I know that the rain is good for spring growth but let's move on :)

Here's to emoticon and emoticon as tomorrow is supposed to be a nicer day. It is also our first WI. emoticon

I have been slow getting myself into this challenge and kind of took this first week step by step. Mainly incorporated walking for my fitness and I missed my 8K step goal a couple times. :(

Next week will be a better week as I feel like I am better prepared.

    Try this for a motivating idea:

* Your desire to change must be greater than your recognition of the inevitable consequences if you don't change.
* First, get real about the consequences.
* Second, visualize your goals of health and fitness. Really try to see those goals, and the steps to them.
* Third enjoy your success.
* Reset your vision, goals, and steps, as required.

Focus on doing these, and the most efficient, enjoyable way of getting "there"!

One man's opinion,

Lee emoticon

Day 5 & 6 of 77: BL Indigo SC - Rain, rain, go away!

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I have never had issues with depression (yet) but yesterday was down right depressing! It rained/sleeted all day ... I am SO thankful that it never snowed which may cause another snow day, so I guess that was the emoticon .

I am feeling better about what the challenge is all about. I need to be "organized" and plan what my "attack" will be so this week started kind of slow but since I have a better understanding of the challenge and what it entails, there shouldn't be any more questioning.

    Good weather will come... eventually! We will be ready. As they say, failing to plan is planning to fail. I like having a back up plan too... what to do as a minimum so I can always succeed. It may be as simple as a couple of crunches on my ball and stretches before bed... but it is something to keep me moving! emoticon

Day 4 of 77: BL Indigo SC - Whether the weather ...

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Today we are headed back into the emoticon and emoticon YUCK! It was almost 80 on Saturday and it may snow tomorrow. emoticon

The weather sure has had it's effect on so many people this year. When the barometer drops I can tell, today was a day of staying indoors and I really didn't do much of anything.

I am trying to take some measures to keep me from any mindless munching in the evenings, especially while watching tv.

Each day I am working on a new area and tryng to make it a habit.

emoticon One day at a time ...

Spark on you sparkies ~ Cookie emoticon

    I suffer from the same thing!!! This might sound crazy and I'm sure people disagree BUT I leave enough calories for a glass of wine in the evenings and sip on it after supper all evening and then I find I don't look for anything else. It's the only glass I have and instead of having it with supper I have a huge glass of water .

    Hi Cookie!

I had trouble at first with the munchies after dinner. BUT I found a few that I really liked and won't tank the rest of the day. I crave crunchy, salty things, like chips. Instead of chips, I found popcorn. Boom-Chick-a-Pop makes a great slightly salty popcorn. I don't eat added sugar, but if you like sweets, they have a kettle corn flavor that I bet is pretty good.

I measure out LESS than one portion in a bowl, put the bag away, and make sure I have a drink as well. If I feel like I NEED to have more, I will go back and give myself the other part of the portion, which feels like seconds, but it's not :-) I tricked myself. LOL!

Good Luck! You can do it!

Day 3 of 77: BL Indigo SC - I LOVE Sparkfriends!

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Good Morning World ...

Day 3 here and it looks to be a beautiful day. I just wanted to express how much I emoticon and appreciate ALL my emoticon 's.

It is so nice to be able to be "real" about how things are going ... nobody cuts you down or shames you when you stumble. They just help you up and dust you off. Sparkfriends know when you need a little nudge or some encouragement. Sparkfriends Rock emoticon

I get so much inspiration from all of you, it is so good to hear the good and the bad ... proves we are all human. emoticon

Yesterday was another "good" day ... I am keeping my goals for week one somewhat simple and basic. I will build on each week. For this challenge I had to literally start over and that's okay ... the important part is I STARTED!

Spark on all you wonderful sparkers ~ Cookie
