I have been having a heck of a time getting my body to do what my mind is telling it to LOL, not sure if this makes sense to anyone but its definitely accurate for what my days have been like!
So day 4 Sunday= was a LAZY day, I had to work on Sat. and so Sunday was just a relax and try to catch myself day. I did not go to the gym however it was not a planned cardio day anyway so no big "off the path" moment there. My husband, my son and I went on a little nature hike to a creek down the street from my house which was nice to get out and enjoy the beautiful autumn day! I counted only 15mins as cardio time for this day because we did alot of walking up the hill than starring at the creek than walking up the hill and the baby sees a bug so we stop and explore, that sort of thing. It was nice to not be winded walking up and down the hills! DH was sweating up a storm and breathin so heavy, I'm like see why you should use that gym membership LOL It was nice.
After are little nature walk we went to get lunch, I got a 12' veggie from SUbway no mayo just fat free honey mustard and avocado with all the veggies! I ate half for lunch with some veggie chips I found at walmart (shout out to these chips! Sensible Portions can be found at walmart super center they have all different flavors and the serving size is for 38 chips or straws depending on the type. THEY ARE AMAZING and I generally fill up on 1/2 the serving size so thats a nice little plus!) anyway so I did generally well on food control Sunday however I did have some extra calories left over so I snuck in 1 1/2 cookie from 7eleven, which is my complete and only sweets weakness. I also drank to 12ounces of diet dr.pepper which I never do so that was bad but hey its SUNDAY! LOL...
is my theme for DAY 5 Monday (today)= Like I had mentioned earlier I am fighting my body to get it to do what my mind knows I need to. Today was a scheduled cardio day and I did not get up this morning and go to the gym. I had to be at work at 7am this morning which means leaving my house at 6:15, there's no way people that I am getting my booty up at 4am which is what I would have to do to get the gym in. However I am planning on hitting the gym for my min. workout time of 45mins this evening so heres to making my body accomplish that !
I am really at that point now where I know If I stop that I will never succeed, this is my make it or brake it zone and I am literally fighting with myself to get er done! I need some I will isms to push myself through so bare with me as I am talking to myself here...
*Hit the 160's by the end of November!
*Work out at least four times a week
*Stick to my food tracking schedule every day
*Only give myself my one cheat day and not turn it into a bing cheat week
*Stop beating myself up everytime I slip a little, remember your human girl!
*Take the time to enjoy my husband and son
*Not focus on what I cant do but focus on what I can do!
Phew.. I feel better ahh what a miracle positive thinking is! Blogging helps me to feel better also, I realize how attainable my goals are when I spell them out.
That's all for now.. thanks for listening!

So this is going to be a quick one just wanted to check in as I said Iw ould try to blog every day of my journey. I weighed in a measured today and my results are posted in my other blog. Im still pumped and ready to do this thing this week. I am a little down since I wrecked myself last week and binged. This week I am going to focus on hitting the gym Monday through Friday before work and on staying withing my calorie range. I am going to try to focus not so much on a numbers goal but on my physical goals. I would like to work on strength training at least two times this week along with cardio every day (5days).
Heres to another succesfully week, enjoy your weekend all and keep your heads up!

So I know I posted the gloomy me blog yesterday however once I started "Sparking" and getting my motivation back from my my moods started to lift way and I decided that the coutdown must start right than and there. So yesterday was officially day 1 of 70, countdown to a new me! I will blog everyday (well every week day unless I can figure out how to blog on my blackberry) to keep myself accountable.
Let me briefly explain what this little "challange" I have created for myself is... Basically there is 70 days untill New Years and the goal is to lose as much weight as possible by than (I am shooting for 45 pounds but will be happy with anything I accomplish!).
The Plan= Workout 5 days a week, continue eating schedule of 1000-1200 calories a day, no food or anything (except water and occasional cocktail ) past 6 P.M., Journal everything I eat, Blog at least Monday through Friday, continue being active in my spark teams and message boards, weigh in once a week, take measurements every four weeks, stay positive and remember that the key here is motoration not depervation!
Is my goal! The reason for this is because I REFUSE TO START ANOTHER NEW YEAR WITH A RESOLUTION OF LOSING WEIGHT!
So Tomorrow I will post a blog with my official weigh in and inches lost! Thanks for reading and to all that have been supporitve
**BEFORE YOU COMMENT PLEASE READ MY DISCLAIMER BELOW, NO NEGATIIVITY!**
I know some may say that I am being to hard on myself however I have always been most succesfull if I just buckle down and do it
1 I am in this for the long haul and understand that this a lifestyle change and that I did not gain this weight overnight so I can not expect it to come off overnight. I am doing this for me, to challange myself and to keep myself motivated.
