Excited about my Exercise Success

Monday, May 02, 2011

So on Thursday i started an new exercise class, actually not really new i used to go to her a long time ago and had to stop when my planter faciaties started acting up then i had surgery on my feet to remove the heal spurs.

Any hoodle my feet are no longer in issue so i went to my first class on Thrusday and what a blast i had. We used drumsticks yes like for drums for hand movements while dancing, we do kickboxing, we added weights and some pilates. It was such a blast 60 mins of shear fun went so fast it didn't even feel like exercise i was bummed cuz i had a workshop to go for TOPS so i had to miss Saturday workout so i went to Sunday workout she has every first Sunday of the month i lucked out and then went today i have enjoyed my exercise so much. Like i said the last 10 mins is always abs, legs and arms and i feel better!!!! I can't wait for the next class!! i am so excited!! who would have thought!!

I have learned alot this past year about not quitting and figuring how to make things work. Some things are easy some are hard i used to give up or skirt when things got hard not any more i have found this year that i am worth every single step i make to make my life better.

I sometimes endure people in my life that try to make feel guilty for doing what i need but i say to them i want to do this for myself and if you can't handle it i'm sorry but i'm first for now. it's for my health, people may get angry and other gets over it over time. I learned it was okay to take care of myself!!! Major accomplishment!!!

Hormonal Detour

Monday, April 25, 2011

I am gearing back from a major hormonal detour. Iím back on the main road and realized I have to learn how to deal with the hormonal issues that occur once a month for me. This time my cravings were extreme but I put two and two together and found that if I drink diet drinks I grave more sweets so these to items and my hormones do not mix. I was constantly hungry and man I just couldnít deal with it! I have returned to my water full time. I have made it pretty. I call it spa water I got a wonderful water craf and filled it with ice and sliced key limes and filled it up with water, it hold a liter of water and figure two of these will be good 3 would be best. I drank my water this weekend no problem, I will use fruits like strawberries, pineapple, key limes, oranges slices, blueberries, mango, watermelon and or cantaloupe. You just add a few chunk of fruit and the ice and water and it gets the essence of the fruit. When I went away to my retreat earlier this month the hotel we were at did this and it was awesome tasting. So I am doing it for myself because I am worth it!!!!

I have also incorporated my exercise to 4 times a week and gradually doing more. I Ďm enrolling in a fun fitness class that uses dance and kickboxing I will do that 3 x a week; water aerobics twice a week and of course my Richards Simmons DVD at least a day or two week! Iím enjoying dancing and that is what Iím working at. I am finding the things I love to do vs. having a feeling of having to do. The girls and I will be going dancing on Friday, May 6, 2011ósome fun oldies music, twisting and elvising ; > )!

    One of Dr. Amen's suggestions was "no sweetners of any kind - they can trigger uncontrolled eating." I guess you discovered that all by yourself.

My Road to Success is being mapped out!

Monday, April 18, 2011

I just returned from a fabulous weight loss retreat with TOPS organization in Eugene, Oregon known as State Recognition Days (SRD) every year chapters from all over the area get together and hear motivational stories and crown there Queens and Kings (people who made their goal by the end of that year aka 12/2010) last week. It was amazing, people losing 228 # to goal she looked awesome and some of the stories. They all always said the same thing that no matter how hard things got or if they would fall off the wagon they NEVER gave up. Perseverance is the key to success!

My journey on sparks started in 2004 7 years ago at 318.5 through those years Iíve lost and then gained, my difference this past year is that I havenít given up on myself. Last year at SRD through TOPS we went to Seaside Oregon and I roomed with the most wonderful people, my TOPS family. I had been going to meetings knew them but never really KNEW them until then we all shared our wants and needs and from there we developed a kinship a family. We get together to exercise, support each other, we learn how to eat out when we go out we teach each other how to make good choices and believe me are eyes and stomach are now in check when it comes to dessert. Anyway, when I am with these girls they give me the energy and drive to keep going, no matter what I am going through I can call on anyone of them and they will be there for me.

My map consists of the following:
1. If you bite it you write it!
2. Exercise 5 times a week for 30 mins NO EXCEPTIONS
3. Rest-7-8 hours of sleep daily!
4. Keep myself fueled with the premium fuel not cheap fuels.
5. Service checks every six months and adjustments if needed.
6. My mini goals will be 5# at a time and little rewards along the way!!!
7. No emotional eating just emotional journaling!
9. Keep my map around me at all times so I never get lost permanently!

This is my maps detours may happen but it is up to me to not stay there and to find the way back on the main road not to be afraid to ask for directions.
I have somehow managed to stay on this map for a year now and will continue. I would love to say it has gotten easier but some days are harder than others. I just continue to keep my car in drive! I have dropped 42.10# since I started my journey. I will push through the plateaus and not give up as I have in the past because I AM WORTH IT!!!

I hope to graduate to KOPS status by next year because I want to graduate at IRD (international recognition days) It will be something to work towards!!!

Go ahead and give yourself your one and last pity party and then move on! Because only then can you take the energy you just wasted and turned it into doing! Doing the hard work, don't wait for the right Monday to start over do it now! You have a CHOICE to make and NOW is the time!!
