BFL Week 4 or 1: Changes?

Monday, April 06, 2009

Just dropping by to say I had a great week! I made healthy choices stuck to my calories most days and worked out 5/7 days I think... lol. *I'm squeezing this post in before bed. this is Test week and I don't have a lot of time to dedicate this week!*

BUT: My goal is to choose healthy things as many times as possible. Workout whenever I can... and stay focused :-)

Sorry this is so short but I have to get some sleep so I can hopefully do an early exercise in the A.M. I will update later!

I am thankful !!

Words of Wisdom: LET IT GO!

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

By T. D. Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk
Away from you: let them walk.
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you,
Loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,
Staying attached to you.
I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might
Be made manifest that they were not for us.
For had they been of us, no doubt they
Would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you.
And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.
Let them go.
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means
That their part in the story is over. And you've got
To know when people's part in your story is over so that you
Don't keep trying to raise the dead.
You've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something.
I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift,
I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful,
it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God
Means for me to have He'll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.
Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!!
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you
And was never intended for your life, then you need to......
LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......
LET IT GO!!!
If someone can't treat you right, love you back,
And see your worth.....
LET IT GO!!!
If someone has angered you,
LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......
LET IT GO!!!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......
LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets
Your needs or talents
LET IT GO!!!
If you have a bad attitude.......
LET IT GO!!!
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......
LET IT GO!!!
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take
You to a new level in Him........
LET IT GO!!!
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......
LET IT GO!!!
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even
Try to help themselves......
LET IT GO!!!
If you're feeling depressed and stressed .........
LET IT GO!!!
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to
Handling yourself and God is saying
"take your hands off of it," then you need to......
LET IT GO!!!
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a new thing for this New Year!
LET IT GO!!!
Get Right or Get Left .. Think about it, and then,
LET IT GO!!!
"The Battle is the Lord's!"

    What a great thing to blog about, and a true inspiration.

I have always been this way and people think I am cold hearted. It is not the case, God is leading me in the path he wants me to be at. I know I can still do better but each day I put it in his hands for direction. I am so happy you shared this, and I would love for you post this again

BFL: Question of the week #1

Sunday, March 29, 2009

QUESTION: Do you think that Workout videos geared toward strength training are just as effective as lifting weights? I mean, I know there is an intensity difference but I wonder will should I *count* it as strength training too :-) ? THANKS!

    Depending on the DVD, I do count it as strength training. If I'm using hand weights and feeling the "burn", I don't see a reason not to count it, but thats just my opinion, if I were you, I would count it. emoticon

    Yea I was pretty much thinking the same thing. Strength training with weights probably gets the results faster... but I must say that the videos include body weight exercises which I'm sure does help tone the body... it's probably just not intense enough to make a difference quickly...

THanks for answerinG!

    I personally wouldn't count it as ST as I think I get a lot more out of straight weight lifting, but I suppose it may be a personal preference thing.

    Workout Video's geared towards strength training are good but it depends on your intensity and how much you push yourself. Most strength training video's work more than 2 muscle groups at a time and you are doing a ton of reps which in my opinion is more like you are doing a cardio workout. Always remember...... if you can easily get to 15 reps with only a little burn but you feel like you could do more, than the weight is too light for you. You need to really push yourself HARD to be able to get to 12 to 15 reps, and even if you know you can't possibly do anymore.....do one more. That is the way to grow your muscle and see results faster :)

BFL: Week 2: One meal at a time

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I have been doing good on my program so far. I need to go grocery shopping so I can have more healthy food options.

I had the best workout yesterday! Rode my bike to the gym, went running, then slipped on my weight lifting gloves and strength trained like a whoa-MAN! lol :-) emoticon emoticon 32 mins-weight lifting 57 mins cardio

I have lost around 5 pounds and am almost back to my start weight before the cruise!

I am going to keep working hard and as I continue to improve my diet I know I will see changes! Thanks for the encouragement last week... I needed it!

My motto is that I do not have to wait til tomorrow to start anew! If I eat something that I shouldn't or choose to enjoy an extra cookie I will not dwell. I will make my next meal more balanced and not throw my, day/week away over a few bad choices. This is not a race... lol. and if I am consistent I will reach my goal... SLOWLY but I will reach it!
