    You can do this! It will happen, just keep it moving toward the goal, no matter how slowly. Progress not perfection.

  I second BrooklynRose. When I read your blog, I thought, "What a great attitude!" I can be pretty good at wallowing sometimes, so I'll take a cue from you!

weekend of fun

Monday, May 17, 2010

I had an awesome weekend. Friday was my best friends birthday, she hit the big 34 so we went to the Hollos and Archivers which are 2 really awesome scrapbooking stores about an hour away from where we live. Archivers= my version of heaven- like a kid in a candy store. We had lunch at this very cool restaurant called Steak On a Stone. They serve you your steak on a 700 degree volcanic rock and you cook each bite individually- great steak. then since it was her birthday and friends don't let friends eat dessert alone, I ordered a triple chocolate cake which was so rich I couldn't finish it. Saturday was my friend Mary Jo's Spring scrapbooking day and I did all her demo's for her, love that so much fun, surrounded by cookies and ate about a billion. Today went out for lunch with the family and had a bacon and cheese omelet.

Well my weekend of fun is over and now atonement must begin. I gotta get back to the plan and back to the gym. Eclipse is coming soon and I gotta really press it to hit my goal. My throat is getting sore- think I may be getting sick- oh well at least I won't be as hungry;)

    Got to tell that 34 is NOT the big one.... :) just sayin'. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend full of indulgence yet know what you need to do to get back on track. I hope you aren't sick. That can certainly take the fun out of everything. I love Archivers too. Everything is so shiny...

On a roll !!!

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Hey there spark-peeps

May has been a great month so far. Only problem, I need more carbs. I was once a carboholic, so I find this kind of ironic. Now I crave protein. It's funny how my cravings have changed. SO I'm going to try to fit more carbs in my meal plan this week.

Resetting my goal has really helped put me in the right frame of mind and I feel like I am finally back in the zone. I am still keeping my calories a little on the higher side, trying to lose it slowly and consistently. Shooting for 2.5 lbs. per week, if I lose more great.

Hope you are having a great month too. Jules

    I'm glad your having such success. I may have to reset my goals to kick start me again. I have to say adding carbs would not be my problem, I struggle with protein. Once again if we were one person.... we would be perfect. emoticon

    Be happy to throw you a few of my carbs. That is interesting how your body has changed over to protein. Why do you think that happened? And I must say I see the humor in your blog title related to carbs - tee hee. emoticon

A week and month in review.

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Hey sparkpeeps-

The month of April, started strong and ended strong- middle was complete crap. After the see-saw I ended the month with a 2.8 lb. lost. Best I can say about that is at least it is a loss, and not a gain.

Last week- was an awesome week , lost 6.2 lbs. this week!!!! monthly visitor came this week so some definitely due to that. Still, stuck to the plan all week, was consistent at the gym - all that good stuff. If I can keep this up I'll hit that 85lb. mark for sure.

Month of May- keeping the goals basic so I stick to them.
*Calories between 1300-1500 per day( it ain't a race- consistency is key.)

*Fitness minutes at least 120 minutes per week (3 40 minute days)

*Earn 700 spark points this month ( being here more often keeps me focused)

*Being accountable to my friend Jennis everyday.

Post my weight in my status every day- my be extreme , but it really keeps me honest.


And last but not least , Let's all make May the best month this year. The 23rd marks my 1yr. weight loss anniversary - yep, got off my butt almost one year ago- it's been the best year off my life - luv y'all Jules

Getting real and resetting some goals.

Monday, April 26, 2010

I have been struggling with this decision. My original goals were to lose 50lbs. by New Moon premier, which i did (63 actually:) and to lose 100 lbs. by the Eclipse premier, I need to face facts ,that this is not gonna happen. So today I bit the bullet and reset my goals to a difficult but more realistic 85 lbs. by 06/30/10. This is still 2.5 lb. per week and I'll have to work my a** of to reach it, but it is goal that I can attain. I don't know what happened between November and today but that is in the past and I'm wiping the slate clean and starting again today. That 100 lb goal was hanging over my head like a guillotine- no more.

Here's to new goals, new determination and being down 85 lbs. by the end of June.

I'll be posting my weight in my status daily, and adding my friend Jennis as an accountability partner- I gotta email her the good the bad and the ugly every day. just doing the things we need to do excercise (atleast 4 days per week) stay between 1400-1500 cals per day, drinking water, yada yada yada.

peace out - jules.

I think it is a very healthy approach to step back, re-assess and make a new plan of action. Having an accountability partner is a GREAT idea!

You can totally ROCK this!!!

    I think you have made a very good decision to reset your goal. I know it had to be a hard one to make. Your new one is definitely more attainable and if you are anything like me an unattainable goal just taunts with failure. I know you are going to make it. Think of how great you'll look at the Eclipse premier. You are going to be smokin' emoticon
