I did it! emoticon I did my 3 days of exercise for the week. I'll try it again for next week but add 1 day of weight training, unless I can get back to Curves.
***************
Now I am off to bed early, because I have to work tomorrow the early shift.
GOODNIGHT Spark friends

Exercise is so good. I'm loving it!! Goodness. Did I really just say that? No, seriously, I love it. If I could afford to go back to Curves, I would. I used to be Manager of a Curves just over 3 years ago, but had to leave due to ill health. I would urge anyone to go that can afford it. I don't know what the fees are in the States, but over here in the UK they do have some really good offers going. Hey!! Who knows, they may give me X-Manager rates. emoticon Keep up the good work and you will certainly get where you need to be.

  Congratulation! It feels so good to meet our goals. Taking your lunch to work will be a big help. I'm used to it now but it does take some planning and work but I try to cook a weeks worth at one time. Thank you for adding me as a friend.

Day 2 of 3

Friday, September 26, 2008

Whoo Hoo! I finally got my second day of exercise in by doing 25 minutes of walking and 5 minutes of weights. I also did this first thing in the morning which felt really good and lasted all day.
Now I just need to get caught up on my water intake for the day. Have a blessed weekend SparkFriends :)

Oww!

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Today was my first full 8 hours of work and boy do my feet and body ache. I am so worn out, so I skipped exercise today but for sure I can't miss tomorrow. I hoping to do a 3x a week schedule for a couple of weeks and then work up to 5 days. I only could do 20 minutes yesterday but at least I got started again.
I've bought lunch stuff for my work so I don't have to get the fatty stuff there. Today's stuff was pretty good. Ok so I am off to get some much wanted/needed rest. Goodnight ZZZzzzz

    20 minutes is great. I am on a tight schedule also and most often I can only get in about 25 or 30 minutes a day. I pack my lunch to. I can't be trusted to not take the cheetos instead of the apple.

    Hey 20 minutes is a WHOLE lot more than no minutes. You are doing great!

    20 mins is better than nothing. Little at a time and you'll get there. I have just got over a 2 week plateau. I thought I was never going to do it, but I changed a few things around and it worked. Yeah!!!

Resting your body is also so important. I should practice what I preach. I sometimes think I am invincible, but, guess what? I'm not. LOL. I forget to slow down and pace myself sometimes and my body gives me a kick in the butt and slows itself down for me. I then can't so anything for a couple of days.

You've had such a tough time and I really can empathise with you. I lost my first husband and baby when I was only 17 years old and I thought the world would stop. That was 36 years ago and I am still here. If you want to know more and talk more, please don't hesitate to mail me. Take care and keep going the way you are and you will certainly achieve what you set out to do.

So good to be home :)

Saturday, September 20, 2008

We had a great weekend visiting friends in NM and participating in their cultural traditions. I am so ready to go back next year, but with a big weight loss, I say this because this year we did a lot of walking. I was able to keep up,but boy do my leg muscles ache now. It is really good to be home, in my nice cool home, and my own bed, so I am off to have a good nights sleep and with one more day off from work tomorrow I will have one more day of rest. Also to get started on a planned week of healthier eating and exercising.
You all have blessed day with your families.
Joanne, mom to Angel RILEY

Plans & stuff

Saturday, September 13, 2008

I've had 3 days off of work and I didn't do any minutes of exercise. Yes, I do feel guilty, but Monday starts a new week and I am planning to start then with a minimum of 15 minutes daily. I have to work tomorrow and then I am off of work for a full 7 days, with plans of weekend travel with my family. Yes! road trip. I feel I need a break, a vacation from this town.

I read the Woman's World magazine and there was a story about taking/making lunch box daily. It was so simple, I think I'm going to try it, even while traveling. Well thats it for updates, Blessings to all :)

    Good for YOU! A break is always good. And I just love new weeks, new months, new years - we have the opportunity to keep on facing our challenges and reaching for our goals! Go for it, girl!!

    Hi there. Guilt is a waste of energy. Put that energy into something positive. What happened is past and gone and you can't change it. i realised that today when I discovered to my horror that I had gone over my daily calories goal for the second day in a row. I grimaced for about two seconds and then said, what the heck, it's not the end of the world. I have training tomorrow, so I will work a bit harder. Good luck with the exercise. Keep it up and you will feel really great afterwards. Hope you have great vacation.

    I've had lazy times like that, too. Sometime you just need it! Then you start from where you are & move on. Can't do anything about the past
