Are you sitting down???

Saturday, April 16, 2011

I decided today after reading the slowest loser blog about getting off of our "hineys" that I am going to think about the hours I spend on my feet or exercising and compare them to the amount of time I sit down. I am going to try to get off of my "hiney" more throughout the day and be active rather than inactive. I was inspired by this blog and decided that if I want to lose some of my "hiney" I need to keep it moving more and sitting down less!! So are you sitting down? I am but I am going to get up more, move more and lose more of my "hiney" this week! Barb

    I am presuming your 'hiney' is your backside. Funny name for a backside, but yes it's good to get up and move around more often than sitting down.

    I laughed through your post - must get off our hiey more often - the pedometer has been a great incentive to do that very thing for me!!! Always a challenge to get a few more steps in! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Refuse to go backwards!!!

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I decided today that I have worked really hard to get into a size smaller jeans and to lose 3 inches off of my waist and 21 pounds off of this body to ever go backwards again. I can not believe that I have been able to do this and know that there is a lot more work ahead of me to reach my dream Betty Boop Bikini Body. It may take me a long time to get there but I will not be sabotaging what I have done so far and undoing my progress. I am adding a new goal to my list of spark goals today and that is the goal to not look back or go backwards. I will believe the best about myself and dig deep inside and find the courage and motivation to keep going forward. I will succeed and I will do this and I will believe in me!!!

6 months and 20 pounds lost and still going!!!

Sunday, April 03, 2011

I have been with sparkpeople 6 months on April 1st!!! Not an April fools joke! I have made a commitment to get healthy and am still going!! I have lost 2o pounds, lowered my Prednisone dose to 5 mgs, exercised 6 days a week and logged my food and worked on a healthier lifestyle successfully. I know that finding sparkpeople was the catalyst that made this all possible. My sparkbuddies and their support and all the information and tracking on the spark site has helped me to succeed in a very difficult life change!!! Thank you to Spark people and all of my sparkfriends! As I set out on my next 6 months I do so with much anticipation and excitement to see what adventures await me. Smiles Barb

Barb has 10,000 Fitness Minutes! Woo Hoo!

Saturday, February 26, 2011

emoticon I have been climbing on my exercise bike 6 times per week since October 1, 2010 and amazingly have kept this commitment and added weight lifting and core body stretches and workouts to add up to 10,000 fitness minutes. Just one day at a time and one hour at a time has added up! I am thankful for spark people support and encouragement and education all along the way and am celebrating today! I believe that I will succeed at keeping on this new life path and am excited to see my body continue to get healthy and watch the weight come off! Some day I will wear a "Betty Boop Bikini" but for now I am so blessed to be able to keep going one day at a time, to stay the course and to keep sparking and smiling!

"If you want something you've never had...you must do something you've never done!"

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

This quote has inspired me to look at 2011 differently. It makes me ask myself questions like...do you really want to be healthy? do you really want a cute and thin body? and then ask the difficult question....are you willing to do the hard work it will take to accomplish this goal? I know that it is easy for me to answer yes to the 1st 2 questions but the 3rd question is not so easy....Oh it is easy to say yes.....but it will be the so daily choice of getting up and just doing what needs to be done that will be hard....Eat healthy, exercise, don't eat that butter laden grilled cheese sandwich or that bag of chips or that huge piece of chocolate cake. I love to cook and I love to eat good food! The truth is that I have days and weeks and months ahead of choices....This is both challenging and freeing. I get to choose what it is I really want and I get to choose what really matters and then I get to live it, live it daily, weekly and monthly. The most amazing part of this is I am in charge and Sparkpeople has given me the tools I need to be successful. I have been given a way to accomplish a huge goal and I know that is is possible if I just keep doing one day at a time the Spark way! I am thankful that I am able to cook yummy food and still take care of my cravings for treats and bread and comfort food and by using healthier recipes and tracking calories I am able to enjoy the food I love and still lose weight. So thank you sparkpeople for the way to do something I have never done before. Hears to a healthy heart and body in February and beyond! Smiles Barb emoticon
