Strong End Week 5

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

This was my original StrongEdn plan I posted at the beginning of BLC19
5/23 WEEK 5: FITNESS (Memorial Day Weekend in this week)
I will more than likely go hang with my parents for the weekend which is always scary. They bring out the terrible eater in me! :( I will take my volleyball and rally together some games! Also take my running shoes and talk the family into going on a run/walk!

Unfortunately I will not be going to my parents... so new strong end needs to be determined...

-Healthy Breakfast
-Drink at least 80oz of water (It is going to be hella hot during our volleyball game so I need to drink lots of water before, during, and after the game! Gotta stay hydrated!)
-40 minutes volleyball
-30 minute fast-walk

-Healthy Breakfast
-Drink at least 80oz of water
-Eat small meals during work
-Limit alcohol/soda
-30 minute fast-walk
-15 minutes zumba game

-Healthy Breakfast
-Drink at least 80oz of water
-Try to talk husband into a 30-60 minute hike
-Churchill downs/horse racing- no alcohol or food! Eat before and after at home.

-Healthy Breakfast
-Drink at least 80oz of water
-Hang out by pool
-Take snacks to pool
-30 minute walk or shred or zumba

SO excited for a 2 day weekend! lol! WOOHOO!!

BLC19 STRONG-END Goals!! Let's Go Azure! :)

Monday, April 09, 2012

I am gonna kill this challenge!! WATCH OUT!!!!

As you now know, this round we are putting more focus on our STRONGEND Challenge!

How many of you, in your REAL life run around day to day with no plan, no schedule. You wouldn't DREAM of it, right? Your life would be pure chaos! Why should your "diet" be any different? How many of us think about our weight JUST from Monday morning until Wednesday morning? You chuckle, because there is truth in that :-)
The STRONGEND focuses on having a plan and a focus. It's not about tracking your food but on planning your success! It's about setting small, obtainable goals and ticking them off each week. It's about planning for those big events coming up - Memorial Day, end of the School Year, 4th of July and summer madness!

YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Put a lot of thought into this - it's your 12 week road map. Only you know how you're going to divert the landmines over the 12 weeks. Have fun with it. Think of adding in things you never thought possible and do them! You want to spend one weekend jumping rope 5 minutes of every hour? PLAN IT, DO IT. You've always wanted to take up tennis? PLAN IT, DO IT. Think about how amazing you are. Think how proud you will be to come report this to the team. Think how good you will feel about yourself each week as you accomplish the small and attainable goals you set for yourself.

HERE I GO!!!!! :)

Sunday Weigh-Ins
4/8- 197
4/15- 195
4/22- 197
4/29- 195
5/6- 195
5/13- 196
5/20- 196

- Lose 20lbs! (SW: 197)
- Try a new recipe every Strong-End Nutrition week!
- Finish painting my kitchen!
- Clean out garage!
- Keep sugar and processed foods to a minimum!
- Be a consistent runner/exerciser! :)

I am going to try a new recipe that are within my current nutrition restrictions! I am trying low sugar/low carb and I get bored with that so I need to find some new staples! :)
-New Fish Taco Recipe completed!

RUN! I have been putting off my running... just haven't been motivated because I know that I will be starting with more walking than running due to being an inactive runner for months! :( So I WILL walk/run every day for this Strong End!
Friday- 60 minute walk/jog; 40 minute Sand Volleyball
Saturday- No run: 60-120 minutes of dancing!
Sunday- 120 minute hike (only one run)

I think I need this one! I have been so busy with work, remodeling, and work! :) I would love to get a pedicure and maybe even a mani! :)
- Well that was a wash! It was the husband's birthday and we had family in town and lots of things going on. :( Maybe next R&R Strong-end!

Try new recipe!
First official Strong-end! I will evaluate my nutrition and set up new menu ideas if necessary! I do not want to get bored with my food! :)
-Keep my carbs and sugar intake low!
-Go to the grocery on Sunday and make a meal plan for the week!

5/2 WEEK 2: FITNESS (Oaks & Derby)
This will be an EXTREMELY busy weekend! We go to the oaks on Friday, then derby parties on Saturday! I will need to find ways to keep my nutrition in check, especially with so much alcohol around! I will be walking a lot, but I will need to have a fitness plan! :)

I feel this would be a great time to go swimsuit shopping! SOOOO I need to keep that in mind! I love swimsuits!!! :) (Gotta hit my goal of 190 for this one!)

Try new recipe! Monitor my sodium for the last week and see what I can make adjustments too.

5/23 WEEK 5: FITNESS (Memorial Day Weekend in this week)
I will more than likely go hang with my parents for the weekend which is always scary. They bring out the terrible eater in me! :( I will take my volleyball and rally together some games! Also take my running shoes and talk the family into going on a run/walk!
-UPDATE- Not going to my parents... so I am posting new Strongend in a different blog!!

I will be poolside for sure on this Sunday! Sooo maybe another pedi!!! AND if I am at my goal weight of 185 this will be facial week!! :)

Try new recipe.

Go hiking with friends or husband! I would love to do more of that! :)

If I hit my goal of 180- NEW PURSE!! I love purse shopping!

6/27 WEEK 10: NUTRITION (July 4th Pre-Weekend)
Try a new recipe!
Plan ahead for the upcoming weekend. 4th of July weekend is a big party weekend so I need to plan some nutritional items/cocktails I can take to whatever party we attend.

7/4 WEEK 11: FITNESS (July 4th)
Whatever party we attend will have volleyball so I will try to make that a priority! Also drink LOTS of water! Also get a run in every morning.

Last Strong-End!! I will have completed my goals and be ready for ready for my massage! :)

TGFA! Thank God for Azure!!!

Monday, April 02, 2012

So as BLC18 comes to an end I am forced to reflect on my poor poor performance... I want to make excuses for myself... but the truth is I am just lazy. I know I have admitted this before but I was still using it as a crutch. As I look back at the goals I made and if I met them I am utterly disappointed in myself...

I look back and what happened? It sure wasn't for lack on motivation from my team! Actually if it weren't for my Azuritas there are days I thought I would quit. Mostly because I felt was letting my team down. But I know that would NEVER be the case! The wonderful people on Azure are always there to listen, to help, to motivate, to push, or whatever I need... they just seem to know! I adore that about them! I know that no matter how far I fall off the wagon they are right there to help me pick myself up! We may seem like a bunch of crazy girls, and we are, but we really care about one another! I LOVE THAT!! It's not just about how many pounds you lost that week or how many pushups you did that day- but what you did to make yourself happy!

It's the best place on Earth and I am so happy to have my own Cabana on the Island of Azure! :) I want to thank everyone on my team for all they do to help keep me around and give a shout-out to some specific ladies! :)

Terry- Thanks for calling me out, even when I don't want you too. :)
Sue- Thanks for always motivating me and asking my goals! You always make me smile!
Sandy- Thanks for believing in me, you have know idea how much it means to me!
Carol- Thanks for the texts and pushing me!
Jenny- Thanks for the texts and funny stories! :)
Robin- Thanks for being so inspirational!
Leesha- Thanks for the comments and goodies!
Jackie- Thanks for the nutritional guidance and FB challenge!
Sharon- Thanks for the Daily Music and questions!
Nadine- Thanks for the ABC News and updates!
Audra- Thanks for being so optimistic!
Clarissa- Thanks for the fitness tips on FB!
Celia- Thanks for sharing your awesome success!
Chrissy- Thanks for using ALL of the emoticons! I love it! :)
Alexia- Thanks for being so sweet!
And last, but certainly not least, KAT- Thanks for starting Azure! And thanks for being such a dang smartelic and making me laugh! (Oh she is going to love this...)

You each have a very special place in my heart! Awwww!!! SOO Mushy!! lol! :)

Round 19 will be my time! My time to get back on track! And with the Azure team behind me, I can do anything! :)

    I almost had to come bust you up!

That's me kicking your butt for thinking you left me off the list - LAST!?! WTH!?! hehe You know I skimmed real quick to see what you said about me, the most important member of the team and I didn't SEE me!


I almost had to pull THIS bad boy out, my TENNIS arm, and bop you on the head, but lucky for you, I saw your little part to me :-D hehe

Oh next round sister, you are in BIG trouble, because I'm back in the saddle, and planning the round around getting ME motivated and keeping me're gonna get some accountability with that travelling :-D hehe

But that a breeze I feel? The wind blowing? Who knows - I say all this now, but the next strong wind that passes might take all that motivation away :-D hehe But I know my little Mini Me Jen will be there waiting for me on Azure Island, probably off flirting with the bartenders, because heaven forbid we BOTH be focused at the same TIME! :-D haha
