Say WHAAAAAT!? I ran HOW fast!? :-D

Sunday, October 04, 2009

Good Morning!

My BABY King Cesar! ( He has a real name.. but it's toooo long to write. LOL!

So I'm beginning to RESPECT the fact that I am a morning person!

Woke up at 5:20 a.m. (todday is Sunday) even though I didn't get a lot of sleep (though I usually try to get at least 7 hours). My goal today is to BE PRODUCTIVE. and so far so good!

I RAN 5 miles in 41 mins 44 seconds! WOW! I have been working on running faster and YAY! I remember the days I was working to get my 5 miles under one hour. God is Good! I actually did 5.5 miles this morning in less than an hour (49 mins to be exact!) I walked the last 1/2 mile to cool down and give my doggy a chance to sniff things ! :-D

Pictures of ME this a.m. after Run

I also have already eaten breakfast and started studying!

The plan for today is
Study from 8:30- 9:45 a.m.
Church 10-12?
Take Cesar out
Study 12:30 - Library close (or 8:00 p.m.)

Pack lunch and snacks

OH and I weighed in at 146 this a.m.

  That's a great workout.

Do you think that you are getting closer to your 7 minute mile goal? That 49 minutes this morning on those 5.5 miles brings you to about an average 9 minute mile? What do you think could do JUST ONE MILE now - 7 1/2 minutes?

Each day is ONE step closer

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Hey Spark People!!

Just stopped by to say that each day WE are one step closer. Closer to our dreams or closer to the things we don't want. So MAKE EACH DAY COUNT. If you can't do a lot, do a little... but by all means, DO SOMETHING.

I am renewing my goals and motives daily, writing in my journal, and praying (this helps me have focus, guidance, purpose, etc). Do what works best for you!

How has your journey been so far? I'm always curious to know what others have learned on their journey. That way we can learn from each others mistakes and I don't have to make them all myself! LOL

I have learned:
to plan my meals ahead of time (though I'm still working on this)
to dance on the days I don't feel like working out, this usually leads to my wanting to do a REAL workout
to wear my heart rate monitor- as it makes me work harder and keeps me from quitting to soon
to WRITE IN MY JOURNAL OFTEN! This helps me destress and reminds me why I'm doing all this in the first place!
to recognize that the battle is truly in the mind. WE CAN DO ANYTHING we believe we can. and the more I think about it, the more I realize that the less we doubt our abilities the MORE we can accomplish.

~*~DOUBT LESS, TRUST MORE~*~ We are MORE than capable of doing what we need to do to get to our goals.

I have maintained in the 140's for a while now, so I am making a new plan to keep it moving in the downward direction! I will be 145.0 THIS WEEK, so after that my goal is to get to 140. Ultimate goal is to be in the 130's by the end of October!

I'm ONE STEP CLOSER to reaching my goals! ARE YOU!?
( I KNOW you are!)

Every ounce or pound gone for me is saying
you are one day closer to that goal.. I am not
there yet, but I am enjoying and taking full advantage of
this wonderful journey. emoticon

This will be short.

But I just wanted to say, I am enthusiastic about life. I am a passionate person and I really enjoy the thrill I get when I'm doing something I love! I am thankful for every blessing I have, for every opportunity I have had to fight for, every person in my life who has come to teach me a lesson. Thank you Spark people for being there to encourage me when I've needed it!

I'm off to write in my journal and watch a movie! Enjoy your weekends!

I am destined for greatness!

Benign!!! Thank you Lord. And thanks for the prayers Spark people!!!

Thursday, September 03, 2009

So turns out that my murmur was benign!!!! YAY! Still shocking to find out that I have a murmur all of a sudden but no harm no foul! AND I can still workout how I want so I'm happy!

I'm still busy but I went for a quick run yesterday ~ 3 miles and it felt great! My asthma has been making it tough for me to workout outside on the humid days... but I'm a trooper :-) So I made it happen!

On a sidenote, I spoke with my bestfriend to day and she ALWAYS inspires me to be better... so on my " Preserving my sexy" mission... I have decided that I'm going to put more effort into being stylish now. I'm not going to wait til I reach my goal weight :-) Life is short and as long as I stay on plan I am CERTAIN I will reach my goal! (Speaking it into existence!)

So after I do a purge of my clothes this weekend, I will go shopping and buy some items that make me feel good! And continue to add to my collection as I get closer to my goal!!!


This may sound weird but I just want to be the BEST! The best me I can be. Seriously. I want to wake up feel energized, proud, confident, sexy, alert, intellingent, and ready for all that life can offer!

I want to go to my closet and pick the first thing I see (which happens to be a very CUTE stylish outfit that flatters my curvy shape) and slip it on without jumping, wiggling, or prying it on! And i'd like to do all this in less than 20 mins.


I woke up at 6 to workout again today! :-D Now if I could just wake up and work out AND get to school ontime without rushing!

Please Pray for me

Friday, August 28, 2009

WEll... good news first.

:-) Good news ladies~ This challenge has allowed me FOR THE FIRST TIME to not have debilitating cramps during TOM!!! YAY for exercise!

Now the worrisome news... So I have developed a heart murmur... and the doctors are worried that something may be going on with my heart. High Blood pressure runs in my family and I've been told on several occasions that I will more than likely be on Blood Pressure meds my whole life because my dad died from a heart attack at 45( VERY young/ and puts you at higher risk).

So basically I have been feeling weak but still pushing through and went to the doctor for a cough and found out I have a new murmur(never had one before). I am remaining prayerful that maybe it is nothing... but in the meanwhile please keep me in your thoughts. I go for my 2nd lab tests on Monday.


And don't worry I am still active, just taking a few lower impact days to protect my heart :)

Just a thought: could it be that you had a congenital heart murmur that was not discussed? The drs. told my parents when I was born but neither of them bothered to tell me until I was pregnant with my son - and it was detected again.


Keep your face toward the sunshine,

    Hey, I know that you are a little worried, but you know the WORD! My dad has high blood pressure and my grandmother had heart disease. Both of my sisters have "soft" heart murmurs, not sure if its a difference from what you have they were and are still very active, cheerleading, running,dancing , workouts. etc have not had any problems. Its a irregular heart beat. My sisters are in there mid to late 30's and was diagnosed with this as youth. Keep the faith! By his stripes you are healed!
