Down 11 pounds!

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

Hey everyone,

Just checking in to update you all, I'm down 11 pounds and hope to lose another 9 pounds which'll put me at DOWN TWENTY POUNDS by the New Year!

I will have to make note cards to remind myself because when it comes time to eat I don't always remember my LONG-TERM Goals... sometimes I just remember what's tastiest and easiest.


Today's GOOD things:
1. I bought a sandwich on flat bread with homemade chips, instead of the fried chicken tenders and french fries I wanted.
2. I only ate once mini pack of candy instead of all 6 pieces that I got for free at work
3. When I realized I forgot my breakfast, I did not snack on junk eventhought I was hungry
4. I walked around on my break instead of staying at my desk
5. I used some stress relief strategies when I got a little stressed instead of bottling it up.
6. BONUS: I slept 9 hours last night! (I am sick and fighting a cold... trying to feel better ASAP)

Today's Not-so-GOOD thingS:
1. I did not wake up when my alarm went off. I didn't snooze either - I don't think, I was just exhausted.
2. I didn't have my coffee or breakfast ready and therefore...
3. I did not eat breakfast before work :(



Here's to good choices emoticon and making better decisions, one decision at a time! I've been on this road long enough... time to Make it HAPPEN.

Trying to do better

Monday, September 08, 2014

Hey everyone,

Every time I get the motivation to post a new blog entry.. it's because 1. I've done something good recently, 2. I've done something that I REALLY want to share, or 3. I'm just lookign for a place to write down my goals so I can go back and review them later... Of course, I think it's awesome if I motviate someone in the meanwhile but life has been so busy for me I can't see how I would be a motivation. :)

So, for now I'm working on motivating myself!

By now you guys know about my ankles. Well, I hate being sedentary... it makes me sluggish and feel depressed and have lower self-worth. That may be somewhat of an exaggeration but truthfullu, exercise is one of my few pastimes that not only gives me a hobby but leaves me feeling MUCH better than I started.

I work about 80 hours a week (sometimes not including all the paperwork I have to do). I decided this weekend to consciously make time to develop some other areas in my life besides work. I give my life to help others ... but when it's MY time... I want to be able to enjoy it.

SO, I am going to use the Rosetta Stone tapes I bought, exercise on my spin bike -until my ankle is strong enough to withstand running/walking again, eat well (cook and skip fast food), and just... give myself a break (not from work but from expecting perfection.)

Life is a work in progress. I'm trying to do better.

Thanks for reading! Go ROCK this Monday!

I did a 30 min morning workout today. I'm proud! (PS: I did not proof read. Just free writing. Forgive my errors)

    You definitely need to take time for yourself and make yourself a priority. It's so good that you realize that and are making an effort to do just that.

    Thank you for this blog it helped my a great deal . We do pressure ourselves way too much and give all we have to others but then we are stingy with ourselves. Take your "me" time back and enjoy it you deserve it.

    Good for you!! We have to keep in mind that we must take care of ourselves before we can take care of others.

    Certainly it is good to give yourself a break from expecting perfection. That has always been a problem for me, too.

    I think it's great for you to make time for yourself! Rosetta Stone sounds awesome. I've been doing duolingo but I think I might need to take the step to learn more with R.S.!

Jiggle Free July: Day 29

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Hey everyone!

My birthday was almost a week ago and I am 29 now! I got my boot off for my birthday so I have been exercising more and I'm happy to be free.

I did 18,129 step yesterday and I completed my FIRST real jog/run since breaking my ankles in May.

I need to work on my endurance again but It felt good to have the wind passing me by. I took my two doggies with me and the puppy did OK. She has a lot of energy to burn but it mostly comes in short spurts of energy.

I'm planning to run 3-4 days a week for now and walk on the other days. I planned to join my job/college's gym because it's only 8 dollars a week! So, I will do that on August 1 and alternate the elliptical/arc trainer on my non running days.

I'm hoping my new found freedom (from my braces and boots) will allow me to be active again. Not that I ever stopped begin active. But, I love the endorphin rush and I'm SO happy to be able to move (cautiously) again.

    Great job on your workouts!! emoticon and $8 a week is a great deal at a gym.

    $8.00 a week! That's like $2.00 a workout (if uoi go 4 times :) ! Nice!

Take it easy on yourself and get back to it gently! Breaking both ankles can't be easy on the body to recover from!!! WOW! What did you do to break them BOTH?

Make sure you are taking your calcium suppliments :) Build those bones back stronger then ever! XOXOX

Jiggle Free July: Day 22

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

So according to my work scale (you know... the analog kind. I mean the one that you move the big block over to 50-100-150-200, etc. ) I have lost 9.25 pounds sicne 7/5 or something. That's with clothes on obviously... I'm guessing it's accurate because those scales don't really vary in terms of weight.

so WOOO HOOO to me!

and I walked an average of 86,421 steps last week... and the boot is coming off this weekend!! so wooohoooooo to me!!!

Oh AND my birthday is tomorrow! Today is my LAST day of 28.
