My Challenge Goals (And Some Good News, Too!!)

Friday, March 29, 2013

So, I started an 8 week weight loss challenge here on SparkPeople two weeks ago and one of the challenges this weeks is to post a blog with our goals for the challenge (I am a little slow on this challenge, today is the last day to do it). So here they are...

1. I would like to lose 10 pounds.
2. I would like to work out 4 times a week (I need to work on this one).
3. I would like to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
4. I would like to do my daily devotions EACH day.
5. I would like to follow my new eating plan.

Okay, so those are my goals for my challenge. I think that I can do them. I have been struggling a bit with them, other than my water intake any my daily devotions. So, starting today I am re-dedicating myself to my challenge. Well, I guess you could say I am doing well with losing 10 pounds, too, because I have lost 3 pounds in the 2 weeks the challenge has been going on.

AND HERE IS MY GOOD NEWS!!!!! emoticon My daughter has been in foster care for the last 6 months and had been with family for a long period before that for various reasons and she moved home last night emoticon I am extremely happy about this, even though I know it is going to be a rough road because of her emotional/behavioral issues. Praise the Lord!!!

My Food Addiction

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have finally come to terms with the fact that I have an addiction to food. I am sure some of you know how that feels. I have struggled with this for a long time. This weekend was really hard for me. I was under a lot of stress and all I did was eat. Previous to this I had been working really hard to keep tabs on my eating and had been doing well. However, it has been pointed out to me that as an addict I cannot control my eating for very long on my own.

So, with the help of my case manager, tomorrow I begin a regimented eating plan. I will be weighing my food and only eating certain things. There will be no sugar or flour because apparently those things affect your brain like drugs. This has helped her lose 88 pounds and keep it off over the last 5 years. I am very nervous and am not sure that I can do it.

I have planned out my meals for the next week and taped them to my refridgerator. I am going to throw out all of the sweets in my house. My boyfriend is on board with this because he supports whatever will make me healthier.

So tomorrow is emoticon of a new me!! Wish me luck!!!

    Hang in there! While it's true that many of us food addicts are addicts for a whole host of reasons - but many of us also fall prey to the addictive chemicals we're bombarded with in our food supply. Getting rid of these is tough in the beginning - but gets easier as time goes on and you'll feel so much better the further along you go.

You can take charge of this!
You can make your future!
You can stare down your fear!

A New Year

Saturday, March 09, 2013

2012 was a very rough year for me. But even though we are now into March, I am re-dedicating myself to a healthier me. I have lost a significant amount of weight this year and plan to keep at it. I have been working out 3-4 times a week to get back into the swing of things and starting April 1st it will be 6 days a week because I am dedicating myself to a program. I havent decided which one yet.

This is a short entry because I am just trying to get back into the habit of using my account.

Kickin Butt!!

Friday, February 17, 2012

Since my last blog entry I have started drinking Shakeology by Beachbody (if you don't know what that is, ask and I am happy to tell you) and have lost 3.5 pounds!! I feel great, I have energy, my immune system seems to have been boosted enormously cause I am not sick constantly like I was before and it tastes great...I didnt think it would emoticon

I have made up my own hybrid of Insanity and p90x for now and plan to start Insanity from the beginning in the near future. I am waiting on the the nutrition guides and such to come in the mail. I can't wait to see how I do with it!! But I have never had so much fun working out...is it hard? Hell Yes!! Is it for everyone? No. Is it for this Insane Chic? OH YEAH BABY!!!!

    Good for you. I haven't started insanity yet. A beachbody coach sent me a sample of the chocolate shakeology which I'll try tomorrow. I'm doing the bodyrock challenge.......Keep up the good work

Pulling Myself Onto the Wagon!!

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I am slowly but surely getting back on the wagon!! I am working out more, eating better, drinking more water and exercising more. I was very, very depressed for awhile and I kept saying, when I feel better I will start working out again.

WRONG!!! In my head I knew I needed to work out to feel better and I was right emoticon The physical pain from 2 teeth that needed to be pulled didnt help (they were extracted yesterday) but honestly, I was using them as an excuse. I just needed to get out of my own way.

I have started running more and it is helping my mood tons. I LOVE IT!!! I dont have the problems with my knees I thought I would and its great.

Ok, this was just a quick update with me emoticon
