My Princess TURNED SGT MIA, watching me &, keeping an eagle eye on
what I am doing/eating/excercise/cleaning/declutter.
I am sad, irritated, but determined because my efforts this week did not result in a loss. I need some fine tuning.
Time to set some new goals..my calories were in the 1500, 1400, 1300, which proves to be too high for me.
Next week I will keep them in the 1000 to 1200 calories....
Oh, and did I say water? Lots of water and than some more water. I am trying a new trick and putting lemon juice in my water.
Some treadmill & new workout DVD.
Maybe I will change it up and do some swimming.
I see the advantage of this blogging for 28 days...I can see the errors or my ways and am forced to look me in the eye and shape up. Like Spark Guy says, be my own coach, my own cheerleader, be accountable to me. I will not let this small gain get me down!!! I am FOCUSED!!!
I AM GOING ALL OUT FOR HEALTHY ME!!
Thanks for reading my Day 21 Blog!! Only seven blogs left to make 28 days.
COUNT DOWN OF 60 DAYS TO THE END OF APRIL...GOAL OF 18 POUNDS GONE.
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
Those cravings hit yesterday & today so I went to the Spark Guy.
As Mr.Chris Downie wrote in The Spark a chapter on Goals Dreams & Deadlines under Cornerstone:FOCUS (pg 18 and on) to start small and be consitent. Daily & weekly goals kept him on track and allowed him to launch immediately on to the path to his new healthy future. Completing them is supposed to give continuous satisfaction and motivaiton to fuel the journey. Keeping in mind to fit everything into my normal daily lifestyle.
Start with long term goals and two action steps:
1. A countdown of 730 days, which would motivate me
2. A "streak", a sustained positive activity that would get me started - in my case, 10 minutes of fitness every day, usually in the morning.
The important thing is to start where you are right now, and keep moving in the direction you want to go. When you take responsibility for becoming your own best friend, supporter, and coach, a whole new world of possibilities will open up for you.
I did the car thing where I returned to the garage with the same type problem that they fixed previously ... needs another part.
Healthy oatmeal/raisins/br sugar & 2% milk = breakfast
salad of romaine, peppers, carrots, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, low fat dressing = lunch
barbeque chicken wings,celery = dinner
100 calorie popcorn = snack
30 min walking inside due to the weather.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes of his life.
For each scene,he noticed 2 sets of footprints
in the sand;one belonged to him and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his
life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the
LORD about it."LORD,YOU said that once I decided to
follow YOU,You'd walk with me all the way.But I have
noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life,there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed YOU most YOU
would leave me."
The LORD replied,"My precious,precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.During your times of trial and suffering,when you see only one set of footprints,it was then that I carried you!"
This reminds me of the verse about the Lord Jesus looking for that one lamb and picking it up when it was lost. Oh,how He really cares for us!This is found in Luke 15:4-7
"He will never leave us nor forsake us!"Hebrews 13:5, one of my favorite verse.
Thought ~ "When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another." ~ Helen Keller
That said, I did the best I could for Tuesday, February 23, 2010!!
I am studying about the Holy Spirit. He is the third person of the Trinity...and a gift to you and me sent by God the Father when Jesus ascended. Jesus said he promised to send another Counselor, Comforter, Teacher, Reminder to the desciples (those who have believed and are in obedience to God). John 14:15-31
My efforts to declutter paid off today (with much prayer) as I completed my tax preperation and filed. Praise God!!
My walking came in at my indoor walking place due to overcast with a promise of rain....30 minutes worth.
Eating a well rounded gourmet of healthy foods produced energy for the day with 8 veggies & fruits, protein in the form of turkey bacon, egg, egg whites,soy & chicken. Carbs limited to the healthy kind. 1505 Calories (over my new 1000-1399 goal).
Water drank ~ eight glasses.
Slept like a baby for 7 hours.
All in all it was a fantastic day!!! Taxes done...veggies & fruit eaten...water in...healthy excercise.
