Until Tomorrow

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Tomorrow I re-start my weight loss program. Thursday I went grocery shopping and bought lots of fruits and vegetables. I have decided what exerccises to do and when and how often. I bought a new water bottle so that I can make sure I drink plenty of water during the day. My job has a small exercise room and I have decided that I will ride the bike for 30 minutes of my lunch break three times (or more if possible) a week.

I also want to quit smoking. I think that once I really implement the exercising and eating well I won't want (or be able) to smoke.

I have also decided to start wearing my pedometer again. It was very helpful before and drove home when I was not exercising enough.

I am ready.

Biggest Loser Challenge...

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

A Biggest Loser Challenge starts at work on Friday, Sptember 16, 2011. I am really, really excited. I have suggested many ideas so that this challenge can be both challenging and fun. I haven't been on Spark People in some time so I thought what better time than now!

We have our first weigh in this Friday. I am making my grocery list for this weekend and thinking of what I want to do for my workouts.

I really slacked off from workign out after injury after injury with the latest being my back. I have to take it easy, but I am not going to let that stop me. There are so many things that I can do to reach my goal. I am going to take it one day at a time.

Exciting stuff!

40th Birthday

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

So my 40th birthday was on July 31st. I began celebrating with family and friends on Thursday and it continued until Sunday afternoon. I changed my profile pic today. It is a pic of one of the dresses I wore at my party on Saturday, August 1st. I actualy fit this red dress! YEAH! I haven't been able to fit in in over a year.

I lost 4.6 pounds last week so now I have lost 17 pounds. It's amazing because just a few months ago I was having such difficulty walking. I was in so much pain. And now I exercise no less than four times a week. Most importantly, I am having fun.

I am so looking forward to being able to say I have list 20 pounds! emoticon

Hooray!

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I might have mentioned that I joined a new exercise group called Queen City Dancing Queen (www.qeuuncitydancingqueen.com) at the end of May. The results have been fantastic. I took my stats and here is what I learned:

I lost 3.6 pounds this week alone!
2 inch loss off hips
2 inch loss off bust
2 inch loss off under bust (basically my bra band)
1 inch loss of my waist
BMI decreased

I have so much energy now that when class is over I am truly disappointed. I am having so much fun it's incredible. The classes are great and the people are even better. Yesterday one of my friends came to class with me and halfway through she asked, while panting, "You do this three times a week?" I laughed. I said you learn to love it. She had a look of doubt on her face. LOL

I am now wearing a size large top instead of an extra large and even my extra large bottoms are loose. I feel good. I even feel sexy sometimes, which is a feeling I'd lost after putting on this weight. My hair is growing like a weed. My skin looks and feels great. Ahhhhhhhhhhh...it's an awesome feeling.

I go to Urban Shimmy on Monday, which has a lot of belly dancing moves. I go to Zumba on Wednesday and DanceOut! on Friday. I am now going to use my benches from The Firm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a little jogging on Saturdays.

That's another thing. I worked out on the fourth of July morning at a class that did a tribute to Michael Jackson and I jogged around the gym four times without stopping. I haven't tried to jog in almost three years due to my injuries and surgeries, but PRAISE GOD! I jogged. And I am going to do it again and again and again.

Have a fantastic weekend! I am off to exercise!

    Hi diva,

You are doing so good! Yes...it's me...I'm back. Been gone forever but decided it's time to get back on track. I would love to join you at the dance classes. I'm going to have to look at that website. I get burned out easily on walking, weights, etc. I need something fun to keep me interested. Well holla at me on my page when you get a chance. Ttyl.
