Still busy:

Last week I did 5 cardio session, 3 strength, 1 yoga session

This week I will try to keep up the fitness! Started doing the Beck Diet Solution book so we'll see... but School is going bananas because we have ONE week left, then Boards time!

Sorry this is so short. I'm working hard to keep up the exercise and eating habits :-) I'll probably write one more time when school ends... then I will be off line for 6 weeks while I study for the 2 year national cumulative test.

Happy Sparking!

hmmm... Maybe I'll Tri it

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

I am seriously considering training for a triathlon! I have done 2 marathons, 3 1/2 marathons, and 2 10ks and many other little races... so the running part doesn't scare me so much. I bike to school and atleast KNOW how to ride a bike so that part doesn't frighten me as much (plus training will help me become mroe efficient at biking) but the SWIMMING scares me to death! I have taken swimming lessons 3 times and I know how to swim but I have a PHOBIA of being in water where my feet don't touch the ground lol. and I'm 5'1. So I don't know many places I could swim .5-2.4 miles in 5 foot water. The point is that it is very important for me to get over my deep water phobia and I've tried before. The reason I know I can swim is that... lol... if I don't know how deep it is I do fine, It's just that when I feel myself start "floating" more I really really get freaked out and quickly sprint/swim towards the wall! There will not be a wall in the triathalon! Oh well.. I'll give it some thought and I know that my 3rd year of school will be endless hours in the hospital so I probably will not be able to get it in before 2010 but I think I will start training now. Maybe I can get over my phobia by then.

Hope all is well with you guys! Lauryn you are right... it is good to know that others are going through tough times AND still making it work. Life has hills and valleys. Atleast we know we have a place to go and unload our burdens! Lol... hope you all don't mind when I come stress about school to you all! I have 2 more tests until this year is over. Please keep me in your prayers. Summer is goign to be rough for about 6 weeks. Then I get 3 weeks to relax!

If anyone has Tips for triathlons please let me know...
I'm sure I need to improve my swimming skill and I'm open to suggestions! :-)
Oh and I'm thinking about doing a "sprint" Triathlon on Oct 11 [ They said this will be an indoor snake/swim?] - this will be on weekend b/t school but I'm not sure how lenient they will be with my "off time". I do know we are promised AT LEAST one day off per week. So maybe i will get that day off.

    Hi FitGirl

A triathlon! How exciting. I do hope you go for it. Just start swimming laps. Can you take some swimming lessons at your school? You will be surprised how quickly your distance increases. With practice will come the confidence. Also, start your affirmations now. Instead of telling yourself that you get freaked out, tell yourself how calm and graceful you are in the water, how well you swim, etc. With affirmations you will come to believe you can do it. I know you can do anything you set your mind too and I think you know it also.

    I don't know how to ride a bike or swim, so you are far better off than me. I say go for it!!

    I am also leary of swimming so will never do a Tri, but you are braver and I think you should :-) Starting with a little one is the best way to go. I have heard of the type you described, where teh swim is in a pool and snakes through (you go up one lane and then down another). That will be a great way for you to ease into it and get the feel for it while still haing a wall nearby. You'll do awesome!

BFL: Week 8: Busy Busy Busy

Sunday, May 03, 2009

Hey everyone!

Writiing this one early this past week was great! I worked out 6/7 days... burned over 7000 calories and really hoping for some weight loss.
6- cardios
3 strength
1 60 min yoga
5 stretching

I have 2 tests this week and school is really starting to weigh down on me... so I'm going to try to keep things simple and basic. I will workout as much as possible. I'm trying to eat on my lower caloric scale until I see the scale move. I ate 1250 cals today and I'm proud of that. I realized yesterday that I actually DO suffer from emotional eating. :-/ Who knew!? apparently, if I'm lonely. upset, bored, or overwhelmed I eat. I didn't really know that. I never eat too much and make "healthy" choices but really I wasn't hungry! I just figured that out. I went to Mcdonald's yesterday and got 3 items off the $ menu and though I wanted them, I didn't NEED them and honestly wasn't hungry. So after I ate it, I realized why did the urge of McDonald's come over so fast.... so suddenly? It was because after looking back I was overwhelmed and frustrated. And that caused me to realize that I AM the one who controls what I eat and I AM the only one who can fix this/ so today, I stuck to my calories... and in the future when I feel an overwhelming urge to have something that I didn't even want an hour prior I will not give in. if I want it that bad, I will want it the next day too. and GUESS WHAT... It WILL STILL BE THERE!!!!!@! YAY!

So... I had no fast food today. And that is an accomplishment! Oh and I went grocery shopping today too. So now I have food to eat and no reason or excuse to run out and get greasy or pseudo-healthy fast food and end up adding fries! LOL!

Have a great week everyone! I am going to continue working hard. I pray you all have a great week and though mine will be busy, I am putting myself high on my list and I AM GOING TO SUCCEED!

    Hey FitGirl

You are doing great! I am impressed with your awareness. It takes years for some of us to figure out why we overeat. I know if I get too tired I want to comfort myself with food. I also know that after I indulge -- I feel worse. emoticon I am still tired but I then have more calories to work off. Some comfort that is.

    Yum! I'm sure it was tasty!!!!! That's the important part, you wanted it and you had it and enjoyed! That's much better than eating it just because! You're the best! :-D emoticon thanks for taking the time to read my blog!!!

I meant to add that I did 1 hr of stationary bike yesterday before bed... emoticon

    Speaking of fast food...I ate the most delicious 6 Dollar burger from Carl's Jr. today. Every bite was sooo good! A wopping 1150 calories though, which I'm not sweating cause I truly enjoyed the burger and i workout almost everyday! Anyways, glad you can recognize the eating patern before it gets out of control. Good job Girl!!! Keep up the good work. I'm very proud of how hard you've been working these last past weeks. Yeahhhh! emoticon

Blessing in the Storm...

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I just wanted to say... Expect goooood things in your life. God (or whomever you believe in) never gives you more than you can handle... Life is truly a blessing. Though we are in a battle with our weight, we must remember that each day is a GIFT and we better unwrap that present and enjoy it RIGHT NOW. As we are. No matter how many flaws we have... cause we have ONE chance at this and we don't get a do-over. Live life to the fullest and find Joy in your struggles!

the way I figure it... life never slows down so we can catch up... so these trials and tribulations ARE life. And I think there is always something to love and enjoy... it's your job to find it!

gotta go to sleep so I can get up and rock this test tomorrow! Love you all Sparkers!

    emoticonThanks Spark Angel!

Its very true what you said, and the older you get the faster time goes by. I have trouble knowing I am the age I am and think where did it all go? So my point is like you said make the most of it and be grateful what we have, and love yourself.

Life never slows down so we can catch up, but we don't need to catch up, so we? You're absolutely right--we need to jump right in, face the challenges and enjoy the ride. Great insight.
