I found my Spark People water bottle last night. It's a blue one they sold when I fist signed on to Spark People in March of 2008. I've bought in the first place to help me with my water consumption. It measures 32oz of water at a time and you need a minimum of 64oz in a day of water. So 2 of this bottle equals 8 8oz cups of water. Sounds easy...it's not when you don't like water at all. I usually hate water...but I've come to enjoy it when it's ice cold...and since Wednesday when I walked big time for the first time in my life I've come to find I like water when I am walking too. So, I am hoping to make water consumption just as easy and important as I have made walking to train for 2010 March of Dimes March for Babies. Again, I am really hoping that a good, healthy habit comes out of this. I know it's really only technically day 3, but I am not feeling bad or like I'm ready to give up like all the other times...I'm atually pretty psyched.

PS- My weight loss wishlist includes: emoticon emoticon emoticon
All of these can be found at www.amazon.com by searching Spark People.


Going to win in 2010!

Thursday, January 28, 2010

So, I really walked yesterday. 2 miles indoor and 1 mile outdoor. I must be honest that it felt great. I did 1 mile in today since my daughter is home and not feeling well, but I am going to try to walk no less than 1 mile 5-6 days a week. I figure that in combination with trying to eat better foods and smaller protions should improve my overall health. To me that is what's most important now. I want to lose weight yes, but I am so down and stressed so much more than I want to be. So I want to lose weight, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and feel better all around. 2010 is my year.

Back in the game.

The 6 week body makeover was doing well, but then it became really expensive to buy all that food. So we stopped. I've discovered on our cable a bunch of free exercise tv so i am going to do some indoor walking until it gets cooler outside. In the mean time I am going to try to eat better and smaller portions. I am just going to do the best I can for now and when our finances get back to comfortable we will go back to the six week body makeover.


#5: Week One/Day One of 6WBM

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Today I officially started the 6 Week Body Makeover Program. Turns out that I am a Body Type A which means that I have the slowest metabolism ever! Certain foods that I have been eating for like my whole life have actually slowed my metabolism down even further. So I am getting better foods in my meals that will actually speed up my metabolism. I am supposed to walk 5 days a week and do a sculpting routine twice a week, but Aria has been sick off and on for the last week. Preparing my meals in advance helped me a TON today, but sadly I was unable to get any exercise in today...oh yeah and did I mention that I also have a cold? Yes...I have a cold. All things considering...today was not terrible. I at least drank my daily 100 oz of water. =]

PS-I will try to update at least once a week. The keyword is try. =]

    Wow! Good for you, Deborah, for starting the 6 Week Makeover. I am not exactly sure what it is so maybe you can tell me more about it when we see each other. It sounds interesting, though. Your doing great with your water. emoticon

#4: 6 Week Body Makeover

Sunday, February 08, 2009

So, I just ordered the 6 week body makeover online. I have been looking at this program for sometime and have thought about how it might just be what I need. I mean...I really did not know where to begin and SparkPeople has helped me a lot at finally figuring out how to count calories, control portions and do really easy exercises. However, I am looking to try somthing to enhance what SparkPeople has already been helping me do. I hope it works out and am looking forward to sharing my progress and results with you. I should be getting my kit in 3-4 weeks so 6 weeks from then I should be on my way. =]
