Day 3/30: WHAT a day...

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

So.... the good news is I woke up at 6 to do a 3 mile run! [45 mins exercise all together] Felt good all day.

Now, it was a blizzard outside and honestly school/work should have been cancelled. :-/ But I decided I was a dedicated student and drove to school anyway. My 12 min drive turned into a 40 min battle to get to school made it safely and was ready to have a somewhat good day! Thankful for those endorphins! I went to the trunk to find an umbrella to get up the hill... and guess what, LOCKED THE DAG ON KEYS IN THE TRUNK! ARG... so I just held mytongue preceeded to walk up the hill .5 miles in the snow and get to work since I was a little late....
ALL this before 8:45 a.m. At 9 a.m. I get an email from school saying we can go home. (well, I CANT because my keys are in the trunk).

Long story short my BF saved the day, picked me up took me to the Honda dealership and I bought a 28 dollar DOOR key only (when it was supposed to cost 7 dollars). [ Which I felt so bad for because he had a paper due... which he did get done by the way! yay! ] ***THE BEST PART OF THIS STORY IS.... WHEN I got back to my car I realized... thoughI HAD locked the keys in the trunk, I had also left ALL the doors UNLOCKED!

WOO HOOO for a crazily ironic day. And obviously I wish I had just checked the doors... but somewhere in the hectic morning rushed I didn't. :-( al;'s well that ends well and at least I am safe. :-D

Have a good one everyone!

    Sounds like a crazy day, but at least it didn't deter you from you journey.

    Yep, that was a wild day. I have had 'em like that, and all you can say is, "I survived!" I'm proud of you for exercising so early and it sounds like you didn't let the frustration get to you TOO much. emoticon

Day 2/30

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

... wishing I hadn't committed to doing 30 days straight LOL. I'm tired... and need to be studying, so I will make this quick. I ate pretty well all day (Had a burrito for dinner though, but it made up for the low cals I had in the a.m. All in all ate about 1300-1400) So I'm happy.

Walked 2 miles + 30 mins of random cardio

cleaned my kitchen-quickly, lol

And going to bed at/by 10:30. The plan is to wake up at 5 and run.

Sorry it's short, hopefully tomorrow I will write it early and just fill in the details of the day at the end so I can be a little more enthusiastic! lol! Have a good night everyone!

Oh on a good note, I DID GREAT ON THAT EXAM I WAS STUDYING FOR!!! Now, i'm studying for another!

Day 1/30: Great workout! (Day one of Jumpstart)

Monday, February 08, 2010

Bombshell in Training:

Exercise: Today I did 65 mins on the elliptical after work... hmm and after a 3 hr nap after work. I was pretty tired so I laid down for a 30 min nap... 3 hours later I woke up scared it was Tues a.m. ! LOL So... I decided to go workout and get SOMETHING accomplished to make me feel good.

Diet: I didn't stick to my planned eating BUT I did make healthy choices and that makes me happy. I only had ONE item that could have been better and that was fries... but I had a grilled chicken sandwich and DIET lemonade and a healthy dinner so all in all I'm happy.

It's late so this one will be short, I need to finish studying before I go back to sleep.

Going to try to do an hour of cardio every day this week. I would like to lose 3 lbs this week! I need the scale to start MOVING! NOW! lol.

  hey girl...where are you at weight loss wise? I am a roll coaster of frustration! I gain 5 pounds and I was in the overweight category again so I tried a1500 diet and a 30 minute calisthenics dvd 6 days a week....I got to day three and then I had problems with the damage from the stroke I had acting up again....I just feel so hopeless like I am never going to make my goal! Sorry for whining I am just very frustrated! Anyway, way to go on yesterday and I hope you are having an excellent focus day today! Best wishes!

Hey everyone!

I know I am late, but I just wanted to thank you ALL who voted me as a motivational member (1/2010)! I remember opening that email and thinking OMGosh... it has finally happened! (lol... it was a secret goal of mine to finally do well enough on spark to motivate someone else and though I have not reached my goal I am working hard and I think perseverance will PAY OFF!!!) I IMMEDIATELY called My sister, DRTAMM, and called her SEVERAL times... of course she wasn't available so I danced around my apartment and then called my mom! LOL and she is NOT into the internet really or putting personal info out there for the (predators) to get us! LOL BUT she knew how much it meant to me and was HAPPY for me too!!! So I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a BIG deal to me! And I hope to continue to inspire you all no matter how busy I get... because I always have room for fitness and happiness and encouraging others!!!

By the way... I saw a GLIMPSE of how AWESOME I'm going to be at my goal weight and I am moving FULL steam ahead. WOOOHOOO. It's time to MAKE IT HAPPEN. So Watch me WORK! Oh and I ran for 40 mins and lifted weights for 20 mins! AND I'm cheerleading for my collegiate ALUMNI team in October and I plan to be OH SO SEXY and talented in my uniform! GO ME! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

And P.S. I have a NEW personal goal... getting my SISTER, DRTAMM, to be a motvational member too! LOL She's lost 50 lbs already and is working PRETTY darned hard at doing this too! lol. (Had to put a plug out there. Love My SIS! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon)

one day, one thing at a time

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Hey guys!

Of course SCHOOL has gotten crazy busy again, I'm delivering babies for the next 2 weeks so I'm working 14 hour days this week duringthe day time/ next week at night THEN we have a final exam on next Friday. So while I will be thinking of you all, I'm going to be on here less( maybe only once to check on my buds and sign in, etc)

I am going to do 15 mins of exercise a day. That is my pledge. And while that is not much, it is what I can do every day and stick to it without feeling bad about not getting it done AND while haveing time to study and succeed!

so I love you ALL my spark friends. Thank you OH so much for selecting me as a motivator. I will write a special blog for that when I get time!

p.s. 2 things I learned today; sometimes it's best to do what works. i.e, I LIKE instant oatmeal. lol. I bought the plain quaker kind and for WEEKS I have been skipping my oatmeal, leaving it in the microwave accidently, eating only 1/2 of my 1/2 cup serving, or being too busy for oatmeal and getting fast food instead! SOOOO Itoday I went to the grocery store and bought the oatmeal I LIKE! Brown sugar and apple cinnamon. Maybe it's not CLEAN but I WILL eat it. and in the long run it has LESS cals than chickfila breakfast ;)

2. Never give up hope. When you feel that things are the roughest KEEP pushing. Because you NEVER know how it will turn out until you give that last push. Though I was totally burned out at the end of my last rotation... I gave my all and (just got my grdes back today) I DID GREAT in that rotation! GOOOO ME! WOO HOOO!

Off to study, then sleep.

    You'll do fine...15 mins is better than nothing and I know it will be intense anyway!!!

Get some rest too...you have a very busy schedule ahead of you and I don't want you burning out!!!!

Good luck and go get em!!!!!!!!!!

    My secret to making plain oatmeal taste super yummy is canned pumpkin! OHMYGOSH its so good, with a little nutmeg and some nuts. You might try that! Its cleaner than the instant kind, easy to make, and pumpkin is full of good stuff.

Good luck getting through the next few weeks!!
