A day of recovery:

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I was on call from 11 am on Mon- 4 am Tues. So I slept in a little today and woke up and decided I could use today to relax.

I ventured out to Borders and took advantage of their 60-80% off sale. I bought 5 books and 3 audio books for $45. I have a book buying problem. lol I should just use the library more but I really like to own my books. :-) I also like the library. I seem to be addicted to reading.

As we speak, I am sitting on my recliner with my books and am going to take some time to rejuvenate my mind and prepare for the week ahead. I will be reading my fitness magazines and new books today, had a good cup of coffee and am letting my mind be free.

Oh and to update you, I stayed active yesterday while I was on call. I walked around the hospital instead of calling/sending an email and made a few extra trips back in forth for the exercise. In the span of a 16+ hour shift I'm sure I squeezed 30+ mins of walking in. (not to mention I actually counted more than 30 mins). :-D

Stay active my friends!

    Your pica always look great! I carry my weight in my stomach, so it's never flattering to show that section for me, LOL, even at my smallest...unless I am holding it in.

Saturday: Soul rejuventation

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Day 4 of logging. I get my gift tomorrow. :)

I saw this quote on my page and found it inspiring. Even though it's been on my page for years, I figured I would share.

Rest but never quit. Even the sun has a sinking spell each evening. But it always rises the next morning. At sunrise, every soul is born again."

Thankful Thursday: Reasons why I'm proud

Thursday, August 25, 2011

So today was a long exhausting day for me. I only have 5 mins to write this blog LITERALLY. I am on a time limit. I gave myself 10 mins to journal and 5 mins to blog.

I have been tired since I got off work. But I decided that somethings MUST be done so I used my time to clean a little, catch up on work that needed to be done this week and of course get at LEAST 7 hours of sleep.

So now I can quickly tell you the reasons why I'M PROUD of myself today.
emoticon* though I am busy, I have NEVER given up on my goal to lose weight and BE HEALTHY.

emoticon* I may not be able to squeeze in much but I try to do something each day. like today I did 20 squats before jumping into bed, a 30 second plank hold for my abs and 5 mins on my spin bike. in the GRAND scheme of things, that was nothing... but to me that was a statement of DEDICATION even when it has to be a little. and I'm sick... so I need to learn to take it easy on myself. I am planning some AM exercise though.

emoticon*I chose a healthy lunch at the cafeteria. - small piece of chicken marsala, cabbage, and carrots

emoticon*I passed on coldstone icecream even though I was right outside the store and wanted it. And I chose not to eat in intentionally! MY goals are MORE important

emoticon * I have been recording my food and exercise for 2 days. 3 more days til I get my first mini gift!

emoticon* I set several mini goals to get the ball rolling on this lasting weight loss and I'm actually completing each step.

** I made time to journal and blog despite an already jam packed day, being sick, and being exhausted. emoticon emoticon

Time is up.
Night Sparkies! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great job! You are inspiring; we can't all sit around expecting that someday we'll all of a sudden have a bunch of time, money, etc. to finally focus exclusively on our goals. We need to fit it in NOW. If it is important, it has to make it in there somehow.

randomness: "you wear it well"

Saturday, August 20, 2011

I'm just dropping by to update you all.

I have been working hard as usual. I woke up randomly at 7:30 this morning (a SATURDAY, when I don't even have to work!! GASP) So I decided to make the most of this morning and get back to my usual free weekend plan of going to a park/hiking on my day off. :-D I am doing my best to stay active. And though I haven't lost much in the weight department, my body is getting MORE and MORE fit. :-) It's to the point where ppl think I have lost pounds but I haven't and even in pictures I look slimmer. At the doctors office, the nurse put the bar (on the scale) at 100 and I told her you need to move it to the 150. She said, NO way. Then she saw I was correct and said WOW I never would have guessed, you wear it well.

All that to say, I want to lose POUNDS. But in the mean while, I don't mind carrying it [ the weight] well. :-) Time for a good workout, so that one day soon the bar on the scale can stay on the 100 bar and I will be at my goal! :-D

    AWESOME, even on non working day you still wake up early and do workouts! I'm so impressive as I'm still struggling to do even just 5-min after I wake up, hehe.

    Yes, it is good to wear it well. And the pounds will come off. It is better to lose them little by little as you and your body learn new good habits.
