Posting my Plans

Monday, November 24, 2014

I recently have recommitted to getting back on track and to RE-Losing all the weight I've lost before which is extremely disheartening. I'm having a hard time getting started and energized this go around. I began the same way I did before but last time I had one less child and a lot less responsibility at my job. I think this time is going to be a greater challenge and require more organization and more accountability. In that spirit, I'm resolving to use my spark people page more than I did before. I'm hoping it will help me organize my thoughts and be accountable, even if no one reads these, I'm putting it out there, and I know I will try to stand by what I type. The first thing I want to regularly blog about is my weekly exercise plan. I have gotten so out of shape but I think I can get back into things pretty quickly if I am consistent and if I try to incorporate small things in through out my day. Here is this week's plan: Monday: Wii Zumba 20 minutes Tuesday: Gym day 30 minutes on bike and 30 minute Core class. Wednesday: off Thursday: post Turkey Day dinner walk Friday: yoga Saturday: gym Zumba Sunday: swim with my kids at the gym. Daily/Nightly: This month I want to do a couple of small things to integrate fitness throughout my day even if I don't do a full work out. Here are those things: Mornings: go through a couple yoga poses focusing on form and just to loosen me up. Workday: Get up from my desk and walk around my building once every couple of hours. Also do the quick fire challenge from the group I burling to at least once. Night time: for the next 2 months I want to do the 30 day plank challenge. I have tried many times and never gotten through it. I'm going to slow it down and do each nights time for 2 nights in a row. I'm going to get all the way through it even if it takes me sixty days. OK I'll check in mid week to report in... I'm also thinking through how to blog about my food. If anyone reads this and can point me to more 30 day challenges I'd appreciate it!

Good luck to you and I know you can do it! emoticon

2nd time around... or is it my 3rd? I've lost count....

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Week 2 of my quest to lose weight AGAIN has not gone that well. It turns out desire alone does not make the numbers on the scale go down. And good choice 50% of the time while better then I was... is also not going to continue weight loss. Week one I lost 3lbs... week 2 I gained 2 back. Not a great start.

I will say I feel more supported than my previous times. The spark people app is great! So much better than it use to be, it is helping me with drive and inspiration for sure, but as with most things it comes down to fundamentals! When i track my food, i make better choices and better adjustments and I lose more weight. When i don't track my food i slip, I turn a blind eye and the weight creeps back up. The one thing I would love to see on the spark people app is a way to update my spark page from the app? Anyone know if that is possible?

This week I resolve to track my food no matter what. even if i know i am over calories, knowledge is power and I need to know how much I'm over so that I can try to make up for lost ground. emoticon

My goals!

Monday, June 21, 2010

I think it is time to re-evaluate my goals and do some "buckling down." All is not lost, I am not gaining. And I am even still losing, sometimes. I have either maintained or list tiny amounts each week for the last several. Which is MUCH better than gaining. But it isn't going to get me to my goals. At this pace it will take my 5 years to lose the weight, and that isn't going to give me very much confidence or the sense of accomplishment I need to keep me going. So I am renewing my drive and I am going to buckle down and get this thing done! I am going to reset my goals again and really work to make sure that this is the last time I am resetting, from now on I am going to MEET them!

May has been busy

Thursday, May 27, 2010

I have been barely able to keep on track this month. We have all been sick in my household and we have been out of town and doing all kinds of stuff.... not going to the gym. Also, I was concerned that I had eaten too poorly. However, I managed to do better than I thought. Not only did I maintain my weight, I lost 4 more lbs. I am so happy! I am super motivated to keep up the good work.


Slow and Steady wins the race!

This week hasn't been perfect! I am sure I could have done better and achieved more. There were some things I probably shouldn't have eaten. BUT I worked hard, I tried to make up for setbacks and I still lost 1.6 lbs. not a HUGE loss but the way I look at it, as long as I lose something each week whether it be lbs, % body fat or inches, that is a WIN. I am going to enjoy my much deserved day off from working out and start Saturday energized and with a new goal to lose at least 2 lbs next week!

    that is great - that is pretty much my motto - a loss is a loss - and each new day is a fresh start. Celebrate each positive and learn from the negatives...
When you make good choices the consequences will also follow.
your little boy is gorgeous! Have a beautiful Mother's Day, and be mindful and make GOOD choices!
