Reflection for 21 day healthy habit challenge

Sunday, June 22, 2008


SW 184.2

CW 176.8

Water 11.5--13
Cal range 1200-1550--1278
Fat range 32-56--52
carb range 130-200-- 146
pro range 60-127---60
sod 0-2300---1684

Well this challenge is finally over. I did not think I would be able to stay with it but by Gods grace I did. I really had to work it-- working around 3 kids home from summer school vacation. School is out but the dr. visits, activities do not end, then there is extended school program for my little one who is autistic. God has really brought me a long way. I thank him daily.

This challenge really kept me accountable. Making my food tracker open to sp public was a big step for me. I am an emotional eater and I have not hid that fact. I think I did pretty good. Sodium is still a problem. I will try to eat more hot cooked cereals like old fashioned oats, cream of wheat, cream of rice etc. The bread is a greater challenge for me. I have to find an alternative probably at our local health store.

Exercises went well It was the first time I did strength training 4 days a week. I got good results. So I will try and keep this up.

Looking forward to the next challenge. THANK YOU MRSHONEY!!!

Sorry I could not post early!! I MADE IT emoticon

POST BEFORE 2:00 EST POSTED 11:17

QUESTION: REMEMBER TO REWARD YOURSELF--HOW TO PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK. WELL I HAVE ALREADY REACHED ONE OF MY GOALS I LOST 5 POUNDS AND I GOT MYSELF SOME NEW CLOTHES AND NEW SHOES, MY NEXT GOAL WILL BE TO LOSE 15 POUNDS--OF COURSE I'LL BREAK IT UP INTO WEEKS. ONE STEP AT A TIME AND ONE DAY AT A TIME. WHEN I LOSE THE 15 POUNDS MAYBE HD AND MYSELF CAN GO ON A MINI TRIP. WE SO NEED IT. I USE STICKERS TO ENCOURAGE MYSELF ON EXERCISING AND STAYING ON CAL RANGE. AT TIMES I DON'T MAKE IT BUT I GO ANYWAY. FOR ME THE CHALLENGE NEVER ENDS BUT IT IS A DAILY THING. I DO PAT MYSELF ON THE BACK BUT NOT IN A PRIDEFUL WAY. IN A WAY TO ENCOURAGE MYSELF TO KEEP GOING. THIS CHALLENGE HAS KEPT ME GOING AND REACHING FOR THE BEST THAT I COULD BE. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT CHALLENGE . EMOTIONAL EATING IS A NEVER ENDING BATTLE. I AM IN THE FIGHT FOR MY HEALTH SAKE. THE BEST GIFT I CAN GIVE MYSELF IS A HEALTHY BODY AND I AM WORKING ON IT.


IN THE PICTURE THIS MAN RAN THE BOSTON MARATHON IT WAS SAID THAT AT THE END HE HAD TO CRAWL TOWAD THE FINISH LINE. THATS HOW MY MIND IS SET. EVEN IF I HAVE TO CRAWL I AM GOING TO MAKE IT.

I enjoyed 'getting to know you' via your blogging!

You're right - it's not how well you run the race, it's the completion of it!!!
I am going to quote you, "EVEN IF I HAVE TO CRAWL I AM GOING TO MAKE IT. "

day 20-- 21 days healthy habit challenge

Saturday, June 21, 2008


SW

184.2

WATER 11.5-- 13.
CAL RANGE 1200-1550 ---1584
FAT 32-56--- 65
CARB RANGE --- 194
PRO RANGE --- 62
SODIUM RANGE 0-2300------ 2600 OUT OF SIGHT AGAIN!!!! I'LL GET YOU YET!!!

CARDIO 30 MIN.

STRENGTH TRAINING NONE TONIGHT

QUESTION: THINK TWO STEPS AHEAD --FIND THE BIG PICTURE: WHAT MOTIVATES AND INSPIRES ME. WOW I MUST ADMIT TOO MANY TIMES (ESPECIALLY WITH THE KIDS ON SUMMER VACATION) I'VE HAD A CONVERSATION WITH MYSELF ABOUT DISHES NEEDING WASHING OR CLOTHES NEEDING FOLDING. HUH THOSE CHORES WAIT MANY TIMES. I TAKE CARE OF ME FIRST. PLANNING AND TIME MANAGEMENT IS A FACTOR FOR ME. WHAT MOTIVATES ME IS WHEN I CAN DO AEROBICS FOR 30 MINUTES AND NOT FEEL LIKE I'LL FAINT. I RECENTLY HAD A CHECK UP MY DOCTOR WAS PLEASED WITH MY WEIGHT LOSS. I AN ENCOURAGED WHEN MY BLOOD SUGARS ARE WITHIN RANGE THAT DOC SUGGEST. SEEING RESULTS OF COURSE IS A MOTIVATOR. BEING ABLE TO EAT A MEAL AND FEEL SATISFIED WITHOUT FEELING OVER BLOATED. LESS OF A DOUBLE CHIN. THE OCCASIONAL COMPLIMENT DOES NOT HURT EITHER AND FINALLY BEING ABLE TO WALK WITHOUT THE SOUND OF SWEEPING WHEN I WEAR STOCKINGS. (NO STOCKINGS NOW IT IS TOO HOT!!!!)

BLOG: GOT CHA

POST BEFORE 2:00 EST----- POST 1:00 EST.

PS I LEFT THE CAL RANGE CONSUMED OFF MY POST BUT IT WAS 1584.

Cal range: 1200-1550 - 1,273
Carb range: 130-200 - 158
Fat 32-56 - 51
Pro range: 60-127 - 59

Cardio goal 30 min. did 90 min.

Upper workouts: 2 sets and 2 reps--- military press, close arm wall press. tricep kickback, bicep Curl.

Question: Why do we beat ourselves up? A look at self destructive thoughts. Well those days are a thing of the past for me. Since joining sp I have learned many things about myself. Positive and encouraging words can uplift you and help you to keep going. So as a man thinketh so is he--that goes for women too. I am fearfully and wondrously made. I am something special. Gods thinks so and so do I.

post before 2:00 est. posting 10.35

9 Hidden reasons to stay motivated --Ways to rediscover your drive--List 10 reasons:

1. Confidence-- The more you accomplish, the more you'll believe in yourself.

I remember when I first started exercising I could do barely 5 min or Walk Away The Pounds Aerobics. I thought I was going to die. Now I can do 30 worth and on good days I can do 45 min. Please note with Leslie a 15 min can equal a mile with her. She really rocks the house!!!

2. Fit into that dress--go that extra mile and stay on track.

Well I gave all my clothes away when they got too little I was deceived into believing before sp that I would never lose weight BOY WAS A WRONG! Recently enjoyed trying on many, many dresses tops and pants. In the past I would dreaded the visit to the clothing store. Now I love it! I am a happy size 14 working towards a size 12.

3. Make the week easier--goals in min will not only go faster but it will be more enjoyable too.

Got um working on them.

4. Gives you purpose--Eat a healthy breakfast it jumps starts your day.

I had trouble with this before sp now I realise it is very important.

5. For your Kids, grands, etc. You'll be able to spoil grands, they'll want you around longer.

Not only I am doing this for my kids but me also. I have family members who are bragging on me so I can not let them down either. They know my struggles.

6. Power of momentum--Something in motion stay in motion. Momentum builds quickly and leads to great results. Sho nuf.

7. The Wow Effect--"Wow you look Great"! stick with your goals and it can happen.

It did happen. My younger child's teacher ask me, "What are you doing"? She said I looked 10 years younger. That felt good!

8. Spread the Spark. Friends and family notice how hard you're working-- they'll want to get motivated too. You can stay motivated and you'll help yourself and others too.

Teacher noticed so does people in the community. I tell them what I am doing and I tell them about Spark People.

9. Keep gaining experience--The more you do --you will learn and understand what works for and what does not work for you.

I am still learning daily.

10. Stick with it and keep going--Never give up and never quit.

I am noticing something here. Little by little, as the days go by and you blog. I can read and hear the tone in your words as you speak.

You speak with more self-assurance, confidence, pride in yourself, and a gleam in your eye and a smile on your face. I get goose bumps. You are blossoming into this beautiful young woman. Not that you weren't before.

I am so very, very proud of you my sista and my emoticon. You are going to do this!!!!! You are going to do this!!!! Praise god!!!! emoticon
