March Goals

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I can't believe how fast February went. I guess when you have plans to look forward to, the month flies by. Anyways it's time to set some goals for March. My goals are:

emoticon Do a full round of Turbo Jam
emoticon Do one round of Super Shred Diet

I need to get my butt into gear, so next month is all about kicking things up a notch. I know that the combination of Turbo Jam and Super Shred I will do just that. I will also make it a goal to post everyday as way to keep myself accountable.

I Need A Planner!

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Last week was a busy one. I had a lot of running around to do and work is super busy. I did manage to do some things that have helped to move my business that I am building, but still I think I need to invest in a planner.

I need to write down everything I plan to do each day, even put in my workout and internet time. I have a lot that I want to do, so unless it is written down I will not do it. I need to go to the store later on today, so maybe I will look around for one.

    Sounds like a good idea . . . good luck finding a planner that works for you. I think that I have seen a pretty good selection at Staples if that helps.

My Aha! Moment

Saturday, January 25, 2014

My journey of losing weight has been a long struggle for me. Not staying motivated and making excuses has kept me from achieving my weight loss goals. I had always had a way of getting back on track by saying to myself that I refuse to weigh over 300lbs. It was something that has helped me to snap out of my funk and do what I needed to get back on my weight loss journey.

That all changed recently as I was looking through different teams to join on SP. I came across the team for those that are over 300lbs and for the first time since joining back in 2009, I couldn't say that I couldn't join that team because I am over 300lbs right now. This actually stopped me in my tracks and made me snap back into reality. I have been using the excuse of not being 300 plus, but now that I am 300 plus what am I going to do about it?

The moment has been sticking with me since it happened yesterday and I am using it as the fuel to keep me going on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I will not let excuses get in the way of me being successful. I may have road blocks from time to time, but I need to remember that there is always a detour around to help me get over it. I refuse to fail and I will not stop until I get to the goal. Yes, all 300 plus of me is going to achieve success this time around.

Its Been Awhile...

Thursday, January 16, 2014

It has been a long time since I have posted on here. Life got in the way, but I am back to finish what I had started. I have made a plan and now I am forcing myself to do it.

Too many excuses have been used and now it's time to backup the talk and walk the walk. Starting in February I will be doing a round of Turbo Jam. I am going to do the whole thing, no excuses. I will be limiting my snacking and stick to my food plan each week, it's the only way I will be able to succeed.

I've got my game face on, now's the time to get to doing what needs to be done.

    DECIDING is 90% of the process and you have decided on a new life. Now the other 10% is just following through on the plan to measure every bite and write it down in the SP nutrition tracker. You can do it. The option is to go back to the old lifestyle and you have already decided not to go there. It's always RIGHT to DO what's right, and wait for your feelings to catch up with you. Good luck on your new life.
PS. Why wait until February????? Why not start today????? Nothing is stopping you.

Going Somewhat Paleo

Monday, November 11, 2013

Starting tomorrow I will be embarking on another path of my weight loss journey. I will be changing my diet to my version of a paleo diet. I have been having stomach issues for the past 3 or 4 years and read that following this diet lifestyle might be what I need to do to find relief.

If you havenít heard of a paleo diet before, itís a diet that is based on eating foods that our bodies were designed for through thousands of years of evolution. You eat foods that you are able to get through hunting and gathering. The diet will consist of me eating meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats. I will be avoiding grains, legumes, processed dairy, processed foods, alcohol, soy oils and seed oils.

I know that it sounds extreme, but I will be having one day a month for a cheat meal to help with the cravings that I know I will have. For this month I will be having a cheat meal on you guessed it, Thanksgiving. I am being realistic about this new adventure that I am embarking on. I am not treating this like a diet that I can get off and on, but a lifestyle change.

    Paleo should not be too hard, I'd imagine except for ruling out dairy. Why not dairy? Hunters/gatheres must've had goats milk at least, right? Oh well. Just wondering to myself, that's all.

Have a good go at the Paleo endeavor.

Have a good week.

    I eat pretty much paleo all the time. I have fairly severe hypothyroidism and my body has decided it does not like gluten. I grow a large garden every year and eat 6 to 9 cups of vegetables daily - little to no starchy vegetables, fresh fruits (2 servings daily) and 6 to 8 ounces of lean protein twice daily. I lost 37 pounds in 2 months eating this way. Then I started trying to add back in some whole grains and my weight loss has stopped and I am having stomach problems again. Paleo is the only way for me to eat.
