50 Day Log in streak!

Saturday, September 06, 2014

emoticon I have been doing well. Today is my 50 day log in streatk!

The weather is a bit hot sometime to do anything outdoors, but I found my passion w/ riding my bike again and I am looking forward to doing more of that.

My food tracking was going well until we had a potluck and that but me off for the last week. Trying to get back on track!

Hope to get more involved in the teams here!

    This is my fifty day logging in also. I love forward to spinning that wheel and doing as much as I have time for. I think the little girl in me comes out. I want my reward.
I have lost 26 pounds since July the 7th and have a lot to go but that is just a thing I know I will get it done. Thank you for sharing.

I am back and living in Arizona!

Friday, April 25, 2014

Lots have happened since my last blog.

I sold my property in SD, the day I was moving! What an awesome sign that this was the right move.

I moved from SD to AZ the end of February and what an adventure that was. Here I was driving a 16 foot moving truck w/ a trailer hauling my car through the mountains. I have determined that if I can do that - I can do just about anything. Although I don't think I will be doing that again.

Found an apartment online and leased it sight unseen. Someone was watching out for me. Very nice apt next to a lake, park and library. Not to mention police and fire annex.

I can no longer use the weather as an excuse, unless I wait until the afternoon when it becomes a bit warm. I put away the snow boots and am thinking I may not even need spring jackets. Only a couple of times in the very early morning. I love to walk in the mornings before work around the lake, which has fish, turtles and ducks.

Finally, I came here on my own. I can no longer blame anyone else for my food choices, exercise choices, whether the apt is clean or not. WOW! And the apt is still not fully unpacked. No one to blame but me. DARN! emoticon

I did buy the spark tracker and that really pushed me to reach my 10K steps, which I did for 3 days in a row. Now I have missed two days because I was too tired from overdoing it the first 3 days. Moderation??

Saturday is my day of rest for exercise as I work at 7:30 am and won't get off until 9:00 pm tonight.

    You just did the reverse of what I did a year and a half ago, when I moved from Tucson to Rapid City :) One thing I do greatly miss about AZ is the year round outdoor workout weather. I even got to where I could run in the evenings when it was over 100! But it took me a few years to acclimate. I think you're going to love being able to be outdoors so much of the year.

Enjoy! :)

Getting back in the groove

Monday, December 30, 2013

and it isn't even the 1st yet!

The last couple of weeks have been very stressful and I even missed a day on here stopping my streak at 51 or so. Holidays, preparing my house for market and trying to resolve things with my ex who is still living with me has put my body in super tightness mode. I have just been trying to maintain over this period with hopes to get back to serious work once my ex moves out. We had been pretty amicable to this point, but that is slowly disappearing.

My goals for the coming week:

Maintain presence on sparkpeople.
Be more mindful of eating.
Continue to declutter house - moving from 4 bedroom to a 1 or 2 bedroom. Freedom!

Slow and Steady

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

It has been a month and things have been going well. I have a good streak and have been able to get my food tracked steadily. I am so grateful with so much turmoil going on. While some things have been really difficult, this consistency has really helped me.

Next step is to add some exercise!

Grateful for being sick?

Friday, November 29, 2013

In a strange sort of way, I am grateful for being sick this holiday week. It forced me to slow down. It forced me to take care of myself. I didn't have to worry about being around people I didn't want to be, although I did miss my daughter and sisters. I am thankful that I didn't do any black Friday or "gray" Thursday shopping. I was happy that I stayed within my ranges. I am anxious to get back to some type of exercising. Something tells me this weekend will be about reflection.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

    Yes, sometimes our body knows more than we do. Good time for reflection and planning for the next time you get together with your "girls".
