Fitness Test and Updates

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

So here are my results for my week 2 fitness test

Push-ups (modified)- 15
Crunches - 30
Lunges (stationary; alternating) - 20
Bicep Curls (unison; 5lbs) - 30
Squats - 27

Cant wait to retest and see those numbers go up, especially the pushups.

So I've changed my mind about when I want to restart Befit. I've decided to wait until the weather starts to get too cold to bike to the gym. So far I've been enjoying my bike ride to the gym that first day was a doozy but it's been getting easier and easier which is quite nice. There is this hill that I always turn at on my trip to the gym that I want to be able to ride up on August 1st, I think that is a reasonable goal.

I have quite a few charts on my wall tracking my Cal burned, fitness minutes, calories eaten, water intake, and my CICO. I'm quite pleased with them so far. I'm still streaking yay. I do have to work on planning and eating regular meals though not sure why I'm having such a hard time with that. Well that is all for this week adios and thanks for reading.

    Cyn, emoticon job streaking and improving !!
Sometimes planning is a tough task. But, just like everything else, the more you do it, the easier it will be, and the better you will be at it. Really give it a try this week.

BLC 22 Goals

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

My goals for this round are to lose around 15lbs. I plan to reach these goals by tracking my food and caloric intake more regularly. I would also like to build a more active routine. I'll plan my meals and actually stick with my plans. Which I know I can do since, when I first started this journey I was quite diligent about sticking to the plan.

I will also make more graphs and charts to add to my wall. I'm a visual person and seeing the line move up or down motivates me. I will also try to fill in my graphs more regularly. I'm not sure what they will all be but I know the fitness minutes will be one of the.

This round I would also like to stay on the streak list. Last round when things at home got a little hectic I fell off but this time I will stick with it no matter what. I also want to start BeFit again, on July 1st. I like to set hard dates otherwise I just kinda push stuff off.

As for a reward I'm leaning towards a manicure, but haven't completely decided.

    Ok, great steps !! I'm a visual person, too. Get some motivating pictures out there along with those graphs. Maybe even on the front of the refrigerator? Or in the kitchen? That's where I like to keep mine.

Dear Cyn

Monday, January 28, 2013

Well one of my challenges for this weekend was to forgive myself for something I did in the past. It took me pretty much the whole weekend to figure out what I wanted to forgive myself for. I've finally decided to forgive myself for being overly cautious. I'm not sure where it began but I've always been the type to pass up opportunities because I was a afraid of failure. You could pretty much say my life motto was "If you don't try, you can't fail." I know it was a horrible way to live. I'm not saying that I'm going to through all caution to the wind, a little caution is necessary. I've spent way too long protecting myself from rejection, now I'm realizing sure rejection may hurt but at the end of the day you can still just pick yourself up and move on to the next opportunity.

The next challenge is how will my life change when I reach my goal weight. Unfortunately I spent so much time trying to figure out what to forgive myself for I barely thought about this one at all. Well I hope to have gained a significant amount of confidence by the time I reach my goal weight. I'm already feeling stronger physically and emotionally. I can only see my strengths growing as I continue on this journey and realizing my weakness are not that bad. I want to be more outgoing and more of a risk taker by the time I reach my goals. I know these are both things that I can start working on now.

Okay now for a brief overview of my week in general. Today I completed day 15 of BeFit in 90 which means I'm falling behind. I plan on kicking it up and finishing all the workouts during the week since getting the TV on the weekends is not guaranteed and I won't be able to see the exercises on my laptop.

It's now the second week of BLC21 and I couldn't ask for a more positive and supportive team. At first I was worried about making my trackers public but it has only helped me thus far. Knowing that someone is watching my tracker is helping curb my snacking, even though it may not actually look like it sometimes. So thank you Mighty Mocha Hunters for being such a wonderful team.

Ditch Day

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Well for every one that made a new year's resolution, according to my calender it is National Ditch New Year's Resolutions Day. So this will be my 5th and final blog... just kidding. I can't help but wonder if some people really do only try to reach their goals for 2.5 weeks and then fall back into their old routine.

Well for nutrition tacking I'm back on a 3 day streak, I forgot to track on Sunday after being on the road for eight hours (taking my brother back to college).

Befit in 90 is going well I think I'm going to try to do all 5 days in a row so that I don't fall off track. Getting the television in the living room is a nearly impossible task on the weekends and I don't want to fall behind. I'm going to do some light cardio with Leslie Sansone on the weekends using some 2 lb weights.

Today is the 2nd day of BLC 21 TNT Thursday I already did the first part, strength training, I'll do the cardio and stretching later tonight. Yesterday I drank 112 oz of water, mmm mmm Water Wednesday, I'm pretty proud of that ha ha.

Also I'm almost out of the 200s emoticon. I can't wait to be in onederland. emoticon


One Year :D

Saturday, January 12, 2013


Today is my official one year sparkversary. While I have not made any significant weightloss achievements, maybe 10-20 pounds at best. I have made great strides in my knowledge of what to eat and what not to eat (or at least in large quantities). While most of last year I kind of just watched users from the sidelines, this year I plan on being an active participant. After participating in my first challenge ( Back to Basics) around September I was hooked... well on challenges sad to say. I still wasn't very active only posting every once in a while. Now it's a new year and I'm looking to create a new more outgoing me.

So in other news I'm now a Mighty Mocha Hunter and ready to start BLC21. This is my first time doing a BLC and I've heard great reviews all around and I can't wait to see what it holds for me.

I'm now on day 5 of BeFit in 90, and still loving it. Well that's all for this week. Thanks for reading.

    Happy Anniversary!!

I can relate to what you said about participating in challenges and about watching from the sidelines. There's a lot of SP jargon and interactions that make me feel like the socially inept dork at a party, the one who approaches a group already in conversation and says "Oh, hey--what are you guys talking about?" Who among us seeks out the opportunity to be the dork?

Thanks for writing this--I enjoyed it.

    Any weight loss is a significant achievement when you look at the cumulative affects.
Remember, 1 pound lost is 4 pounds of pressure off you knees, so great work. emoticon and here's to you! emoticon
