A day within boundaries: Discipline breeds success

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

I am proud of myself.

I am slowly making better decisions that will lead to my success.

I understand that no now means YES later.

I am proud of myself.

I have faced battles I thought I would lose.

Only to find, that in the end I win.

If I learn to have patience and discipline.

I am proud of myself.

-------

Hmmm.. didn't intend to make that into a mini poem, it just sort of came out while writing. I basically just wanted to say, I STUCK TO MY CALORIES again today. I am READY to see my after. and I know I had been holding myself back. With excuses and fear and what ifs.

But I am ready. And watch out. Because when I GET READY... things change. (and of course, I trust God for the strength, discipline, and endurance I will need to REACH MY GOAL).

This is a short blog but I just wanted to tell someone that I am PROUD I stuck to my calorie goals. :-D That's a BIG step in the RIGHT direction. If I can do this most days... I will succeed! Tomorrow, I will do more exercise!

freedom!

Friday, December 03, 2010

Hey everyone!

I took my test yesterday :-) And came home and got some rest basically! Today... I slept in til 1 pm... :-D It felt sooo great! Still sleepy though... I did 1 mile when I woke up. I treated myself to a movie today - last three years? - and bought a CD to celebrate finishing my exam! :)

This is a random blog so there is not point lol....

I've been thinking, I have been a cheerleader since I was 4 and I LOVE CHEERLEADING! So, a secret goal of mine is to try otu for a professional or Semi-pro cheerleading team once I graduate from medical school. I mean, there may be SOME free time in residency. And either way... trying out doesn't mean you'll be on the team. So... to achieve this goal, I FIRST have to get back to tip top shape, which I have been trying to do anyway! And I'm going to take adult dance classes so I can keep up with my dance moves.

Truth is, if I never get to try out for a team... it'll still be FUN to have a goal to strive towards that isn't SOLELY weight based!

Hope you all had a great week, I AM SOOOOOO happy to be done with that exam. Lord knows, I hope I did well!

    Yep!! Thanks guys! And I missed the tryouts for this year in my area... but I'll be moving for residency in May and I'll scope out any potential teams! I cheered in college too so at least I have that part down... just gotta get back to top notch shape! Thanks for the support!

    I say search it out & see if somewhere there are try outs for cheerleaders. Why not?! We have to set side goals as well.

God bless & woohoo & finish exam.

    YAY for being done with the test-- I'm sure you ROCKED IT! Also-- I think your goal of trying out for a professional cheerleading/dance team is AWESOME! I have a few friends who cheer for football teams and they LOVE it!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend :)

End of the Year Countdown...

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Is it just me... or does the end of the year represent a new opportunity. emoticon You have a choice. You can look upon your previously made goals [that you may or may not have reached] as a sign of failure OR you can look at this as a renewed chance for success. There are still 5 weeks (give or take) until the New Year! And even if you can't reach your goal completely before 1/1/11 .... you can DEFINITELY put a DENT in those goals for next year!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So... lace up those running shoes, fire up those workout dvds, get a good night's rest and LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN! :-D

I'm still going strong with my studying [test in 1.5 days] AND my hundred for the holidays challenge. Done 40 + miles.

My goals:
[]Lose 10 lbs by Jan 1. That's roughly 5 weeks... so roughly a little more than 2 lbs per week. :-D Totally DO ABLE!
[]Read a book... FOR FUN!!!! (I have a few weeks off of school- I am doing Rosetta stone Spanish for credit but I'll have some time for play too... I will be going on residency interviews and etc...)
[] Track my food, do my best to make healthy choices and stay around 1600 cals or less.
[] exercise often. hopefully doing at least some walking every day.



That's it for me... Hope you all have a happy holidayS!!!

    You're right ON about the new year meaning new opportunities! And I keep forgetting there's about 5 weeks left because I've just chalked that Christmas to NYE week up as a loss. I'm starting to rethink that now! We're going out of town, but I can still get in some quality runs and workouts!

You've got me all excited about December now :) Thanks for the awesome reminder... and cheers to reaching your end/beginning of the year goals!

Beautiful Bombshell Bootcamp Day 120: I AM

Monday, November 15, 2010

I am a Beautiful Bombshell in the making.
I am more than what meets the eye
sometimes underestimated, sometimes insecure
but something that I am is loving, my heart is pure.
I am gorgeous in the making
I am fitter than I seem
I am working while you're sleeping
I'll give my all to achieve my dream

Hey Spark Friends,

I just wanted to stop by to let you all know I am STILL hanging in there. Still working hard towards my goal and I think I may have lost a few pounds. I am planning to start running again, I can thank my sis for that. She ran a 1/2 marathon and I'm proud of her. I wanted to run when I saw they were still allowing registration but it was HER day and I was there to supporT! plus I hadn't trained! lol.
I have a torn Labrum aka "HIP socket is hurting badly "and makes it hard to run right now, but I am going to start slow and work on endurance and strength... I figure if I have done 2 marathons and 2 1/2 marathons there is a runner in me, and taking my time to heal my hip is OK. :-)

This weekend, I realized that I know a LOT about weight loss. I know so much that I'm TIRED of knowing more , I just want to DO that which I know. I don't need to read another book or buy another DVD. ALL I need to do, is do what I know to do. When I get my body moving, I do exercises that strengthen my body and work up a sweat and it is not a struggle but when I try to force myself to do a DVD I get bored and stop. So maybe the lesson is that you should do what works and do it often!

I have my first Residency Interview on THURSDAY of this week! YAY!!! So, studying and working out and residency interview! Going to be a busy week but I'll Make it Happen!

It's time to rise to the occasion and bring in the new year in style!!!!!!! DON'T GIVE UP NOW. THE RACE IS NOT OVER. IT IS NOT TOO LATE. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE!

LOL I'm a little hype tonight! Ok, back to studying.

    Glad to hear that you are still hanging in there. You should definitely take the time to heal from your injury. You have done so much and you know what you need to do. I know what you mean about having information fatigue. Just come up with a plan of attack and take the first step. You've got it in you.

Also, I hope that you interview went well. I am inspired by the fact that you have been able to do so much at such a busy time in your life. I am rooting for you in your residency pursuits. Keep it up!

YOU ROCK!!!

{{Good luck with the residency interview..but I know you will nail it}}

    I loved the poem. We are all Beautiful Bombshells in the making.

It sounds like you have a busy week ahead of you. I am getting ready to call it a night but working on my Monday points.

Take care of that hip. I think it is wonderful that you are wanting to begin running again. Don't overdo it and prolong your hip from healing. I always say that babysteps win the race and in your case this will be literal.

Good Luck with the interview and goals you have set. Take it one step at a time.

Beautiful Bombshell Bootcamp Day 113: Accountable

Monday, November 08, 2010



I use the small plates that came with the plates I bought... the big ones just seem HUGE to me :-) And no, I didn't do some professional presentation... but it sure was YUMMY!

My dinner from Last night. It's my re-enactment of Jason Deli's Pollo mexicano LOL! medium baked potato, 2 oz of chicken 1/4 cup of cheese. YUM!

Oh and I am committing to measuring every thing I eat for the next week. Might be a bit tedious... but being accountable is essential to seeing a loss on the scale!

Less than 8 weeks til the New Year... I'm making it count! You should too :-D

Oh and I didn't sleep last night... still up at 4:30 am, so I'm going to the gym to go for a run. :-/ last week this would have been 5:30 so, it's ok to workout right? I'm planning to sleep after that. Then wake up and go study. :-D

    Hello stranger. You know I have another friend with a name sort of like yours and I knew something was wrong. You still look great! And you know what they say about sleep! emoticon lol

Keep up the great work but don't stress when you overdo. Just get back the next day. Working out will not change what you eat. Stir it up a little. Don't hurt yourself trying to help yourself. Ok? emoticon

Blessings to You and Your Journey! Thanks for the goodie!

    Measuring is very important for us to know exactly how many calories we are getting. Estimating tends to creep up. And then, so does our weight.

    Make sure you grab some shut eye some where. I had 2 naps over the weekend trying to generate some health & well being.

God bless & make it happen!
