Hello to all my SP friends
I had to take a break from stuff. I had to de-stress, re-evaluate and re-focus. I have been up and down, in and out, confused, tired stressed and frustrated. The only thing that I did consistently was work.

Fast forward to today. My my life is still in shambles the factors that has caused all of this stress has not changed. But I am changing my response to to everything. I thought before that I was doing that and perhaps I did on a certain level. What I know now is this is not a one time thing, The work has to continue. So as I have said regarding other things. I am a work in progress. I am evolving every day.

There are some potential major changes that may happen in the next 30-60 days. There are two ways they can go. No matter which way it goes I will be just fine. I am trusting is that God is working everything for my good. It is up to me to believe. I will not let His work in my life be in vain. I am believing that the Universe is conspiring for my good. I am dealing with the NOW! I have a tendency to looking at everything from a woe is me perspective and not seeing the GIFT!

I am working my way back to complete my weight loss goals and I have decided to work through the pain instead of run away.

Shout out to the Turquoise Titans BL team! I walked away from the team in the midst of the challenge and they have been so kind to me! I am forever grateful to them and all of my SP friends who have posted on my page.

Fall Challenge Blog

Saturday, September 08, 2012

The question that I have to answer is what are the 5 things that are holding me back from reaching my goal.

1. Allowing everything else to get in the way of dealing with me (passive/aggressive behavior)
2. Going on eating out binges because I just don't want to eat healthy
3. Lack of consistency in my program
4. Lack of commitment to myself
5. I think the 4 are sufficient!

What is the one thing that I want to work on during this challenge
Make a commitment to myself! If I do this wholeheartedly I think the rest will fall into place. Not saying that they will no longer be a problem but I have to remind myself that I made a commitment to get healthy and lose weight. SOOOOOO

For the next 10 weeks I commit to myself. Putting my need to have good health above my: stressful job, my desire to veg on the computer, prograstination and so forth.

I know how hard it is to sometimes leave everything else and put ourselves first. But if we don't start doing that, than we will be not as healthy and productive.
I know you will do an amazing job at committing to putting yourself first for the next ten weeks. Then things will be in place and you will continue on your journey!
We are going to do great on this challenge!

No Insanity (126 to 52)

Saturday, July 21, 2012

There was no insanity to update. I managed to do my fit test last Sunday and life changed after that. I will say I made some improvment in the 2 wks. It was hard for me to believe. HOWEVER I am afraid of what I might have lost with no exercise this week.

I had painting going on at my house (outside) and my youngest was attending a 3 day writers workshop. And I was coordinating all of this along with getting my oldest daughter's car back to our house. This week was difficult with eating, drinking enough water and exercising which resulted in a 1 pound gain. But I am not dismayed. It is a bump and I will regroup and press forward.

See ya next week emoticon emoticon

Insanity Update week 2 (133 to 52)

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Hello Spark World and Spark Family!
I am still hanging in there with insanity.
Challenges: It is no easier than the first week. LOL, I did not eat as well this week which lead to increased fatigue.
Progress: I lost an inch off of my waist! (havent checked other areas) but the pants are fitting looser! I gained .3 this week but no biggie.... My endurance has improved "slightly"

Week 3 starts tomorrow and I do a repeat on my fit test. We will see how much better I am doing! I am still doing heavy modifications but I am able to dig even deeper with the mods

On another note this was a tough week at work. Our department has been moved and restructured. Our company has a non-profit side and a for profit side. Our department has been on the profit side for 20 yrs and all of a sudden they move us. I know it was not all of a sudden but it's like WOW... So with it goes a change in our reporting structure and all that goes with that. BUMMER! But since there is nothing that I can do to change the situation I must adapt and press foward.

See ya at the next insanity update! I am so proud of me! LOL

I am Insane!(140 to 52)

Saturday, July 07, 2012

WOW I have not blogged since MAY! I guess I have not had anything much to say LOL

I was recently tortured by my youngest favorite daughter to purchase the insanity exercise dvd's. I caved and did it. Shaun T moved into our home and we started with the fit test last Sunday(I was totally worn out on the fit test!) and started the program on Monday as I wanted my rest day to be on Saturday. Well I am proud to say I made it through week 1! Oh yea she made it too. LOL She actually called me at work blaming me for ordering the dvd's LOLLOLLOL
How did I make it? MODIFICATION MODIFICATION MODIFICATION! My knees are not able to take all of the jumping. Nor am I able to move as fast as Shaun T. But I figured out a way to do a modification of any exercise that was too much for me! Now let's not get it twisted; there were times that all I could do was lay on the floor panting and dripping with sweat! (and sweating is not what I do a lot of)
I will say that despite the fact that I could not do all of the exercises the way Shaun or his team did them; I did push harder and digged deeper(Insanityism's) this week and I MADE IT! I lost .6 pounds and I did see some improvement in what I was able to do! emoticon
Week 2 starts in the morning! Soooo I will try to update next week! emoticon
