Finding Mojo!

Saturday, July 12, 2014

So, I've been thinking today about ways that I can find my "mojo" It's been missing and I need to get it back! I found a great article on this that really hit home for me.

-mojo-back-yeah-baby/


I'm going to take some of the advice from this column.

1. I am going to meet with a personal trainer.
2. I texted a friend today to see if she wants to meet twice a month for a $4 Zumba class.
3. I texted another friend to see if she wants to do yoga 1x per week.
4. I am looking for some new wall art for my office to spice it up (unfortunately I've tried changing the furniture and I can't due to the dimensions).
5. I am looking up some new recipes for different foods. (I found some really good ones)

There - five doable things to help me get my mojo back! I need it! lol!!

    I LOVE that you are incorporating friends into exercise. I have recently been making workout dates with friends too and it's such a fun way to stay motivated, be held accountable, and get social time in as well! I hope your friends say yes!! A $4 zumba class-- how did you even find a deal like that?!

Love that you're finding your mojo again. You got this Becky, It's deep inside of you. You just gotta pull it out and go with it! Hugs!

Day 38 Progress

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Okay - so I've been MIA! I went on vacation. I enjoyed myself wholeheartedly. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Technically, I'm still on "vacation" mentally because I'm taking a break from wearing my body bugg and counting calories. I'm trying to figure out the plan that I will begin on July 14th. Now, my ultimate goal would be to lose 32 pounds in 16 weeks (because that is my birthday week) however I don't know that it's realistic. BUT with that being said, I'm going to try!

I did not meet with the personal trainer a few weeks ago. I postponed until July 14th because I knew any advice that he/she was going to give wouldn't be a good time to start just because of my little break.

I just wanted to check in but I'm about to go eat Subway and do some grocery shopping to stock up for the week. Healthy goodness and some movement - that is how I'm going to lose these extra pounds that have creeped up!!

    Awesome! So glad you had a nice break and time to come back fresh. I am finding that I am eating healthier without tracking than I was when I was tracking. It might be the switch to a busier lifestyle, but I'm also just focusing on veggies, veggies, and more veggies! Still no loss on the scale but I'm feeling better. Also allowing myself to splurge every night on some dark chocolate or something fun :)

Happy July (Day 30 Progress)

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy July! What big plans do you have this month? My plans for June fell short but I'm not stopping this fight! However, I did get in 3049 fitness minutes in June!!!

Tomorrow, I have a meeting with a personal trainer. I think I need a swift kick in the pants so I'm looking forward to that! emoticon

My progress over the last few days has waned. I was out of town and therefore meals were a little bit crazy and unhealthy.

Either way, I'm plugging along and will continue to update as I go along!

    I am sure a personal trainer will increase your intensity. I also think we need to be pushed outside of our comfort zone. We can do much more than we give ourselves credit for. Good luck! emoticon

Day 21 Progress

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Hello friends! Today was better than yesterday.



I got up this morning and put away some clothes, straightened the house a bit and then did an upper body strength workout. Afterward, I watched a Lifetime movie. I took a little nap after that. This afternoon, hubby and I went on a long walk and that was nice instead of laying around the house. This evening after dinner, I splurged and had a homemade banana split. I should have avoided it but it's not about perfection. I made a lot of good choices today and I am okay with that.

NSV's
- I had a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner
- I had lots of vegetables today (dinner included 10 broiled asparagus spears and a whole broiled zucchini)
- I had 1 hour and 30 minutes of activity today (including my upper body strength workout which I made it through two sets of today as well as a 40 minute walk)
- I drank 10 glasses of water today

~~~~~~~~
I have a plan for tomorrow and am hoping to be able to stick to the plan.

    Great job! I'm sure the homemade banana split saved calories AND satisfied a craving. Love the quote!

Day 20 Progress (or not)

Saturday, June 21, 2014

My rear-end is being handed to me on a big platter and at the rate I'm going that platter just keeps getting bigger!

I think I am a food addict. I have never said that before.

I averaged this weeks calories and my daily average was 2598 which is not good. My average should be around 1500 and that way I could actually lose a pound.

    I'm a food addict too and its very hard to stay within the calorie range every day. Maybe there is a team you can join here at spark that will offer you the support you need.

    Girl I know what you mean! It takes A LOT of discipline to stay within your calorie range. I find that I eat more when TOM is near.

    I agree...knowing where you are at is very helpful. Gives you a place to start the changes!

    It helps to know. I found out that I ate a lot more calories than I realized when I started tracking. It doesn't take long to get up to 1500 calories.
