Stop making excuses and look for results!

Saturday, November 14, 2009

So today is the day I start on my next part of the journey. I want to lose another 50 lbs by May 10th.. my Bday. And although I know that with Isagenix I can very well get rid of this weight by February, I also know how much I like to screw up .. and ... if I lose 75lbs that'll be even better emoticon
I've reset my account to reflect new weight challenge.

You know, I have an amazing business coach, who always says: 98% of the population are looking for excuses and 2% are looking for results, thats why 98% are dead or dead broke by the age of 65 and 2% are financially independent. She also said : Stop living your life according to the circumstances and live your life according to where you want to go..
What an inspiration!

Today I choose to stop eating food just because it's in front of me, I chose to take control over my body and exercise and not watch TV, I chose Healthy LIFE.
Everything else.. GET OUT OF MY WAY!

    I'm with you! My goal is to be under 180 by New Years... that's about 12 pounds. Of course I'll have another 30 to go, but like you, I have to take it in stages.

I wish you all the best on your journey!

I am NOT gaining weight this holiday season!

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

SO many things have happened since I posted here. I have been checking in often, just didn't feel like posting. But here I am..

I have moved to MN, I got licensed as a foster parent, I left my boyfriend of 4 years and I seemed to forgot who this journey was all about. Feeling sorry for yourself and lonely is really not great way to spend time.. I felt out of my fitness routine and noticed that I didn't feel as comfortable in my clothes anymore.. So .. I am coming back to basics... I have about 50lbs left to lose and I am losing them this holiday season!

I knew that posting this post on the 1st cleanse day wouldn't mean much to me. So often I wouldn't even make it that 1st day. So .. I started my cleansing on Sunday and happy to say that I've successfully cleansed for 2 days. It is such a delight to be able to have first morning shake.

hhmm.. let's see.. my menu for the day is all planned out. Depending on how hungry I might feel, I am thinking about preparing and freezing meals for the next 4 days, so I am not tempted when cooking. I have water right next to me, I will go and find my Turbo Jam dvd right now.

I think I'm good .. and I am going to continue to lose weight this holiday season.

    Welcome back and if you need support hit the panic button, we are here. That panic button has saved me a few times. The holidays are rough but we can do it together.

So I haven't posted in awhile..

But I have been doing really good. I have stayed on Isagenix as well as with my fitness routine. I am dropping sizes, losing inches and all the good stuuf. Not much of a weight loss, but that is because of a lean muscle gain, so that's ok.

    That great news that you are not relying on your scale to provide you with the inspiration to follow your program. Your list of other items are far more reliable on your success than the weight loss you scale shows. emoticon

Another pound off!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

whooot! Cleanse day paid off, it usually does. The next morning after the cleanse it's like a Christmas Morning! I get up and RUN to the scale to see what Santa(Isagenix) took away emoticon
It is such an awesome feeling to see numbers go down every time.


Plan for today is:

Morning: Turbo Jam cardio party

Lunch: not sure yet (I know it's bad.. ) I think I'll have shake for lunch and meal for dinner today.

Evening: Personal Training (first one in weeks.. with a new trainer)
Dinner: lots of veggies and steamed tilapia fillet with couscous.. that sounds good.

Snacks: Almonds

I might change all that. I might actually have food for lunch, cause of the personal training. Otherwise I won't get a chance to eat till late and that's not good.
Anyhow, I better get my butt to Turbo Jam right now and then try to put lunch together.
I'll be here tomorrow. If I don't.. come find me and bring me here.. lol .. Have a good day!


50lbs down, 50lbs to go

Monday, May 25, 2009

It's a funny feeling, knowing that I am at half way point. It's almost like.. hey.. it took me 6 months to get here, now I know I can get to the end of this. But at the same time I feel like: man, I lost 50lbs.. that's so awesome, and it makes me feel comfortable.

I don't like feeling "comfortable", cause that's the feeling that got be to obesity in the first place.

SO I had to take a hard look at myself today and schedule my cleanse days vs. shake days and reminded myself that I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks, AGAIN. But I did my 20min Turbo Jam. It's not the same, but it's a little pick-me-upper, when I can't get to the gym.

Today is a cleanse day, it wasn't supposed to be, but last night Scott tempted me with pizza at the moment of weakness and I said yes. Not his fault, I know I kind of made it sound like it is, but no. I could have said NO.. instead I gave in...I didn't gain any weight, in fact I actually lost -0.4lbs but I know that pizza wasn't the right thing to put in my body and definitely not HALF OF THE WHOLE PIZZA. That's what I mean by "comfortable" "Oh I'm back to 199lbs let me sabotage myself" WHAT THE HECK?
So I'm cleansing today as a punishment to myself and to clean all that sodium out of me AGAIN.
as I am still at 199lbs I will go ahead and treat myself to a mani/padi today. Cause well.. after all I made it here, even if I crawled half the way. So I feel like I deserve it just a little bit.

I will be going out of town again, this time to Isagenix University and I'll be back home on June1st. That's when my new schedule kicks it up a notch and I will be pushing myself to the limits.

I don't know how, other than by the Grace of Almighty God Himself, but I will make it to that finish line.
150lbs is just around the corner! I might not see that finish line yet, but it's like that moment in your work out when you look at the time and you know that you just did half of it and you know that you can totally make it all the way. That's where I'm at.

    I think that's great...you stuck it out for six months - you lost 50 LBS - AMAZING and very inspirational - just think the next 50 may go even faster due to all that nice lean muscle you've built.
