A morning to be proud of

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

This might be a little corny, but I am so proud of this.....LOL

I got out of the shower and after drying off I wrapped my towel around myself under my arms and tucked it in....then took notice how the towel actually meets and slightly over laps at the bottom. I am so proud of the small things. But that is a great step in my weight loss journey.

Being Proud of myself

Sunday, September 01, 2013

I have been logging in to Speakpeople on a consistent basis for the past 18 day. I know that might not be anything to some people but I am SO proud of myself. I am trying to do better with health issues for me, because if I don't don't I am not any good to help others. I want to be healthier and more active and I am on my way!!!

I have been tracking my food with the help of my phone which a wonderful tool.

    emoticon I struggle to being consistent too Weekends mostly and I almost always undo all my hard work I do Monday to Friday. Everyday I have been here I have gotten better and I have had so many NSV and my health right now is 75 % better than it was three months ago. I cant wait to see what three more months does.

Starting again........

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Well, I am back again to the thousandth time. I want to lose weight like I to do every year. I have been away from my sparkpage for a little while...but I have returned and I am surprised by the my numbers since I've last checked in. My weight isn't a bad as I thought it was going to be, don't get me wrong isn't not were I would like it to be. But get back on here and holding myself accountable.

Things I want to do to help me obtain a healthy life~
* Try to blog or journal
* Keep a food journal
* Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily
* Keep a positive attitude........ I CAN DO THIS!!!!!
* Move more if nothing else DANCE

Since today was my first day that I took the time to REALLY be on"sparkpeople" I am really proud of myself.

I tracked my food, water, veggie and fruit....I am slowly going to incorporate exercise even if it just the basics like sit ups, squats and some dumbbell work for my arms.

I CAN DO IT!!!!! I AM WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT!!!!!!

OMG I slipped, BAD!!!

Sunday, July 20, 2008

Well, its been awhile since I have been on here and man I didn't like some of the things that happened to me. I really liked the progress I was making and that really took at nose dive. I didn't realize how helpful the visualization of seeing my weight on the tracker was and I was more accountable when I signed in every day to sparks. Since not being on here I have gained 10 pounds. Man in that depressing!!!

But the good news is I am trying it again and I am going to just start being more accountable by writing down what I eat, even if I wish I would not have ate it. That is the first step I need to do and then I need to add small goals. I need to drink more water and less coffee. I also need to start exercising. which means would have to get up earlier in the morning and I need my beauty sleep!!!

I have to remember I am doing this for me and to set an example for my children to live a healthy active life.

    Glad to see you've picked yourself up. I know how you feel as I've gained a lot back in the last year even though I keep trying. I'm just starting to deal with the emotional issues as well as the other things that contributed to the slide. But through it all, I keep getting back on and trying which I think you will find is the most important thing you can do for yourself.

Exercise-I am doing it!!!

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

I started riding my recumbent bike this week. Which has been a little difficult because I fell down the steps on new years day and bruised my tailbone really bad. The doctor told me it take a long time for tailbone bruises to heal. Well, two and half month and still have some discomfort. Thank God I don't have a desk job. But I am doing it with the help of pain pills and by sitting on a cushion. But I am proud that I am doing it.

    Yes, tailbone fractures take awhile to heal. I fractured mine a couple of years ago on the steps (my dog tripped me). I was in pain for a few months, worst at work b/c I do alot of walking & lifting. I didn't do the pain killer thing, I hate taking pills.
I'm glad you are pushing through the pain & staying active that will help alot. Keep up the great work you will feel better in no time.You are a winner! Or should I say Loser. HaHA!

    Good for you! You sort of take my excuses and throw them right out the window. Very motivating.
Tailbones do take an incredibly long time to heal, probably longer depending on your age. Thank God for drugs, aye? LOL.
