Sunday, January 27, 2013

Hello everyone...Been a busy weekend but fun...

I didn't exercise much at all last week but I am back and ready for Curves tomorrow! Evie's 8th bday was Friday so my parents came in to celebrate Friday then Saturday she had a bowling bday party with her friends followed by my in laws coming over for Chinese that evening. Today, must get on the laundry and my MGMT homework. I am so crazy...I decided to re-read the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy, I just loved the books that much. But I promise I will not spend 12 hrs a day readying...just going to aim for about 20 min a day or maybe an hr if no homework ;)

BLC Weekend Challenge:
1)How will my life change one I reach my goal? Well I know I will have so much more confidence and energy. I will be able to do so much more activities with my family. It will def boost my happiness!

2) Forgive myself for one this...I am forgiving myself for just falling completely off track. I am very hard on myself so I will let it go and move on and only look to the future.

Take care and have a great Sunday!!!

Weight down but not exactly a good thing...

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I am down 4lbs this week...but hardly think it was from my hardwork...I have had the stomach bug over the past few days and have hardly ate a thing. So naturally I should probably be up next week but I am not going to let that bother me.

I have been laying around the house since Sunday. I have read boths books 1 and 2 in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and am almost done with the 3rd. Was not expecting a lot of what I read but I sure haven't been able to put the books down!

Need to take today and tomorrow and get my homework down, get stuff ready for Evie's bday on Fri and her party with friends Sat...So happy the kids don't have school Friday...works out nice :)

Haven't worked out since Friday. I am def not making it again today and also staying home from class. Hopefully I can make it Friday.

Well I haven't been very eventful since last week so thats about it :) Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

    Take the rewards from the ugly circumstances. I'd much more enjoy remembering the victories instead of the defeats ... That way the victories can overtake the failing many times over. May your good health return to you soon. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

Weigh in Wednesday...WOO HOO!!!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Good Morning Fellow Sparkies!

How is everyone today! I am tired but not in a great mood. I love it when I wake with great results on scale and tape measurer!

Weight....down 1 lbs
Bust...down 3 inches??? not so sure about this one
Waist...down .5 in
Thigh...down .5in
Calf...down 1in

Got my curves workout this morning...Can't wait! My toe is no longer in pain. Back is ok...a lil stiff but after my workout it should be great. Then back home to quickly shower and head to class (even it isn't cancelled again). Just sat around and relaxed yesterday after my dentist appt. So have to get some things done after class today! Evie has her 8 yr checkup after school today. Then tomorrow must go grocery shopping, shopping for a new sleeping bag for Evie...going to be part of an early bday present so she can have a better sleeping bag for her friends sleepover this Saturday...YOu know Hello Kitty is so last year lol. Still having hard time believing my lil Evie will be 8 next week :(

Well hope everyone has a fanstastic weigh in and day! And I super excited that BLC 21 begins officially today!!! WOO HOO!!!

Hello all my sparkfriends!!

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I hope everyone is doing well! Its been a nice weekend around here. Reached the 60's yesterday so we got all the Christmas stuff brought in. Too bad we are dropping back to the 30's today :( Only in Michigan lol

Friday I started Curves workout. Pretty much was just trained on the machines so I didn't get the full circuit done since I had class. But Monday I get to do the full circuit. I really liked it though and the ladies were extremely friendly!

Haven't had ay homework yet. In Span we just reviewed last semester topics and in MGMT we just had to familarize oursleves with the course. This week we actually jump in the books and the work begins. I will be busy again but I don't think I will have the problems I did last semester.

Most of you know that over the past few months I have had issues with my stomach. The ultrasound came back normal and so did that H Pylori test. My doc said I can see the gastronologist but I have to wait until the semester is over at this point. However I have noticed since the semester has ended I haven't had any issues (except heart burn but I can handle that). I am just going to continue taking the Prilosec and see how it goes. I am also not going to take the Ibuprofen either since that made me so sick. But Tylenol works. Not sure if I have an ulcer or what but all I know is that stress and ibuprofen make it 100 times worse!

Hoping that starting this new ST circuit at curves it helps build up my muscle in my quads and I can get rid of this knee pain!

Today I am engulfed in laundry! I swear its breeds when we are sleeping lol!


Have a terrific Sunday!!!

    You will love Curves. I did when they was near me. I would go after work and it was the best work out. But then they closed. I really miss the feeling the work out gave me. And wish I could get motivated to do some kind of work out at home that gave me the same satisfying feeling Curves gave me...but haven't found one yet...LOL.

    My laundry breeds too. I swear - you leave two sock lying around and you wake up to a basketful.

I'm glad you liked Curves.

Maybe since you can't seen a specialist until the end of the semester now, you could keep a journal of stomach issues - keep track of your pain each day, but also keep track of your stress level and what foods you eat. You may be able to figure it out on your own, and if not I be the specialist would be glad to have it.

I hope the week has been going well for all of you! Hasn't been to stressful this first week back to school. No real homework yet. This week in the online MGMT class were are supposed to get started by looking thru the site, purchasing our simulations, reading the syllabus. Monday opens the first unit. I really like my spanish teacher so far. He is very nice and makes the class fun so far :) We are just reviewing the things we learned in span 1 before we move on to spanish 2 concepts. I think he will begin that next week.

My knee and RLS has been acting up so I started taking my muscle relaxers again and boy do they make me tired! I did not want to wake up this morning. No class for me today so I think I may come home from dropping Evie off, call Dell for them to fix my printer once again, and then take a nap.

Curves appt went great. My first workout will be on Friday :) Can't wait. . I signed up for the circuit training for $34 per month since I already am a member of sparkpeople and have basically all the same tools there as in the complete program. I am going to go MWF after I drop the kids off from 9:15 til 9:45 then I will have enough time to run home, shower and get to class at 11. I really liked it. Total body workout in 30 min can't beat it. Circuit training is the best way to go to for losing body fat. My goal is still to get to 120 and lose at least 16 inches.
Then on TTHSa I will do some cardio off my goals/programs list.

Have a great Thursday Friends :)

    I think you'll like Curves. I really did. Unfortunately right now even $34 a month is too much for me. I'm really hoping that later this spring things will settle enough that I can go back.
