June 2014

Friday, June 06, 2014

So like I said I have been working evenings 4-5 days a week and I still haven't gotten used to it. My eating schedule is out of whack!!! I can't seem to figure it out yet but I am working on it. Any suggestions to help are welcome!

Goals this month:

1. Kill my weeds in the back and front yard. My backyard is starting to look like a jungle. :/
2. Lose 5-10 pounds by the end of June.
3. Figure out an eating schedule that will work when I am working.
4. Drink 8 cups water a day
5. Figure out a way to get to the gym even when I am working.

Gonna try using my calendar to help me schedule workouts and meals. Hope it works!

Hope everyone is doing well :)

Goals April/May 2014

Monday, April 14, 2014

goals starting now:

1. Go to bed earlier-have not been getting enough sleep!!!
2. Weigh in on Wednesdays
3. Eat One, One, One style
4. Read on a daily basis
5. Get into my hobbies
6. continue going through my garage and sell as much as I can before I have a garage sale
7. have the entire house organized somehow (blogging on this later)
8. Workout 4 -5 days a week. 3 days of weights and 10 min cardio and 2 days of just cardio for 30 minutes
9. get on spark more often than i have been and track everything.
10. potty training a boy, help me :/ ideas and experiences appreciated!
11. goal weight for april 30~ 160
12. goal weight for may 30~150

I was almost at 150 and I don't know what happened. I feel stressed and worn out most of the time and I need to take better care of me. I should take a nap most days as tired as I am but it is the easiest time for me to get things done or just have some peace and quiet. I was talking with my mom on bringing my son who is in his terrible twos right now once a week for a few hours. I think that would help a lot to have just alone time once in a while to do whatever I needed or wanted without any interruptions. My sister in law is getting married in September next year or around then, there will be a family reunion at the end of July and I really want to look my best. I need to stop wishing on things to happen and make them happen because I know that I can do it. I need to stop listening to the voice in my head saying I can't when in fact I can.

This will be the best fit summer in a long time :) Lets do this together friends...

    You have set some good goals for yourself. I do not have kids so I am not the best at giving advice on that end - however, I see some parents that work out with their kids. They push the stroller while they walk/run, or lift weights at home while their kids are playing. Make sure that you are eating well as well, and don't feel ashamed in asking for help from people around you.
Good Luck!

    Those are some excellent goals and though it can be tough getting out when you have kids, once you start making a habit of getting you time, it will feel amazing and you will be better for it. Keep pushing. you can do this!

    When my kids were little I hired a neighborhood teenager to come in every afternoon (M-F) and I would leave and go for a walk. It was me time! Hang in there. Keep Sparking!

    You can do it! Thank you for the spark mailer! It sounds like you have set some good goals for yourself for the next month and a half. Let's continue to motivate each other! I just got my wisdom teeth out, so my goal is to be off the couch and working out by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

Quick update- apologies my friends

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Sorry to all my supporters I am getting on here to give y'all a quick update. I have sadly been sabotaging my hard work. I know getting on here with the support from y'all helps me. I am my biggest obstacle and I know I can do this. So why do I keep on doing this to myself? I know how to get where I want to be and do the opposite. I didn't want to admit I have gotten off track after doing so well. Will post a goals blog soon.

    I self-sabotage myself all the time. I wish I knew how to stop it.

    We have all fallen off the wagon more times than we can count. It is normal because this journey is not a simple start-end process.
Try to come on SP even when you have not done your best - other will inspire you, and hopefully motivate you. The reason for coming here is to give and receive encouragement - you do not have to be perfect.
