Days 10, 11 & 12 of 100 Days to a New & Healthier ME

Monday, July 07, 2014



I thought I better check in before someone sends out the posse to find me! emoticon

The weekend was great! I spent lots of time with my family. We didn't go to the town festivities because it was so hot but we did catch the fireworks.

Now for the GOOD, THE BAD & THE DOWN RIGHT UGLY!

Tracking - I didn't.

Exercise - I didn't. I am sensing a theme here! Okay I did a few minutes of dancing on Friday but when I say a few...I mean like 3 minutes.

Water - I did get 8 glasses consistently each day. I needed a lot more than that though because it is really hot.

Plain and simple, I got lazy.



I could sit here and say that it was the holiday or that I wasn't feeling well or that I was busy but the truth of the matter is at I was lazy and I didn't want to do it.

I am not proud of myself when I say that. In fact, I am embarrassed to have to say it. I had planned to do one blog for those days since I was busy but I didn't plan to be a schumpy bump on the log when it came to my goals!

Today is a new day and I am doing well. I will be back later to give my report!



Much love!

Day 9 of 100 Days to a New & Healthier ME

Friday, July 04, 2014

Today was a fantastic day!

I spent the day watching the Southwest Believers Convention online. I have been watching all week and it has been fantastic. I got my exercise in during the worship music! Not only did I get in the exercise but I did 15 minutes of dancing so I reached my increased goal! emoticon emoticon

Tracking - emoticon within calorie range - emoticon

Water - I only drank 4 glasses today. emoticon

I am going to have to really pump up the water tomorrow since it has been really hot here. I am shooting for 16 glasses tomorrow.

I get to go to bed much earlier than usual tonight! I am so excited. I don't get to go to bed before midnight very often. Looks like Marlie is tired too. I think she just went to sleep on the sofa! emoticon

Well that is all I have for tonight!

Much love!!

    IM,

You're doing emoticon !!! I love the fact that you pumped it up with the dancing, during praise and worship! It's always FUN to dance before he Lord!

Please drink more water, I don't want you to become dehydrated. The doctors say that if you get thirsty, then you're already dehydrated. Please drink more, as it'll wash the toxins out of you system.

Be blessed,

Day 8 of 100 Days to a New & Healthier ME

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Today there are no cute pictures. There are no cute sayings or jokes. Today was NOT how I wanted to start week 2 but here we go.

Tracking emoticon With in calorie range - Nope not at all
Exercise = Didn't happen
Water - emoticon

Weigh In = Last Week 342.4
Current = 338.4

Pounds lost 4

I am a bit disappointed in how this day went as far as my goals but I have been in an online convention and it is pretty much all day so by the evening, I am pretty tired. This convention goes through Saturday. I have got to make time for my exercise as it is important to my plan.

I got caught up in the crappy food that my daughter brought home today. Not good. I just didn't fight it off at all. I just jumped right in and ate.

I am 8.4 pounds away from my first goal. I am so excited! emoticon

Well this post is a simple and plain post but I wanted to get it in. Now I am off to bed.

Much love!

    IM,

You make any type of blog that you want, as it helps to get thing out there, that help others. I thank you for your honesty, as you're holding yourself accountable.

We all end up taking a detour every now and again, so let it go and know that you're back on the main road, now!

emoticon on two accounts:

1. Losing 4 pound
2. 8.4 pounds away from your first goal

Those are some MAJOR STATISTICS!!! You go, GIRL!!!

Be blessed,

You are doing great!! There will always be little speed bumps along the way. The main thing is how we are going to treat that speed bump. Are we going to allow it to stop us or do we just jump right over?

    Good for you on 4 pounds! Look at the positives for today - you lost weight, you got your tracking in, you got your water in, and you posted your blog! Now think about ways you can get in added exercise today while you are on the computer! Can you do some marching in your chair? How about side bends or toe touches?

Day 7 of 100 Days to a New & Healthier ME

Wednesday, July 02, 2014



It is the end of week 1 and I have to say that I am SO glad that I did this challenge. I am learning things about myself. I am feeling so much better about myself and this journey.

I could get down on myself for not being further along since I have been at it for over 2 years. I could whine and cry about the extra weight that I gained. I could just throw in the towel and say "MEH I have fought this weight all my life and I just keep getting fatter". Believe me, I have thought about giving up so many times but I can't give up.

I have to get healthy. I have so many things that I want to do. I have so many things that I want to prove to myself. I have talked a good game so I need to take those words and put them into action. I was there before so I know that the fire is still there! It might be smoldering but I can see that it is growing. This time, I will make it to my goal!

So without further adieu, here is how Day 7 went:

Tracking and in calorie range emoticon
Exercise emoticon
Water emoticon

NEXT WEEK'S PLAN



So for next week, I am going to stick with the same goals. I do want to increase my exercise to 15 minutes so I will work on that. The main thing is to get the exercise in and to do at least 10 minutes. Adding the 5 minutes will just keep me building and moving forward.

Another thing I am going to focus on is positive affirmations/quotes to keep those negative thoughts at bay.

Today's NSV - My hubster said that he is noticing that I have more energy! Woo Hoo! I love it!

Well, my daughter should be home soon so I can go to bed so I am gonna get going so I can get to bed right after she gets here. I am not the only one that was tired. Marlie went into the bedroom and laid down in the doorway and went to sleep. The hubster thought she might have had a problem so he woke her up to see if she was okay. She was fine just sleepy. About 15 minutes later, she was back on the floor asleep!


Much love!~

What a fantastic week you've had! This is just so AMAZING and it also an emoticon thing that you're doing to get God's Temple in order. Girl, I'm so proud of you, and your DH is too, or he would not have noticed !

I need to eat a skinny person, too!

You're doing so well, and just remember that what ever you put your sprit, soul, and body to do, you're able to do it through Christ, who gives you strength! You go GIRL!!!
