goals 2014

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

hello sparkers

im feeling a little motivated, seems if you think positive positive will follow. I started today feeling horrible about myself and the environment around me, but i chose to shrug it off and boom things are working out pretty good.

So here it goes my list of goals for this year:

1- by this summer i will loose 10 more pounds
2- i will get my drivers license this year

Im back!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

So its been a while since i visited spark people, let alone stuck with my healthy lifestyle. I guess after loosing those first 35 pounds, i figured i needed a break, but what i hadnt realized is that its okay to take a small break but not a permanent one, its okay to cheat once in a while but not a constant cheat. which is exactly what i did. I cheated at each meal emoticon emoticon emoticon and i didnt worry about working out to burn off the excess calories consumed, i didnt worry about keeping things flowing naturally with water, i just drank all my calories away and over consumed food. Didn't worry about my veggies. didnt keep an eye on my late night snacks just threw all those tasting chocolates into my mouth like i hadnt a worry in the world for my health....and look what happened. i gained 5 pounds back in a snap of a finger. loosing 5 pounds is so hard! it seems impossible to gain them back so quickly but i did. which has given me a reality call. Its okay to cheat a little bit, but dont jump off the wagon completly ...luckily it was just 5 pounds...
i will start over and make it a consistent thing. I will work daily to make it a part of my lifestyle. emoticon emoticon
Those out there who have lost there way ... come on back ...join me on my journey as i make healthy a part of my daily lifestyle. emoticon

    emoticon back !

I've done the same thing, made the mistake of going off track and not paying attention.

Congrats on realizing what was happening before you took too many back steps. Good for you !

Be Happy and remember daily efforts create a new you!

Monday, April 08, 2013

So ive come to a harsh reality that we will make mistakes. Trying to be perfect all the time just wont work! The important part of it all is to get back up and continue on our journey!Cut ourselves some slack andTry, Try and try again!

Our overall goal shouldnt be to get back to a certain number on the scale, to wear a certain size pants, no no no our goal should be to be happy! All our actions to live a healthier happier life will reflect on us , on our smile! Be happy today, even if the scale wont budge! even if you fell off track! Get back on track and focus today, remember take it ONE DAY AT A TIME! dont forget... BE HAPPY! Do it because you love it , because you want it, because it makes you happy.

No excuses! 60 days to a better body today is day 11!!!!!

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Good morning SPARKERS!!!

Today i woke up feeling like i've had such a long week all i want to do is stay in bed all day,
not go for a morning walk,
not go to work,
no excersize,
no playing with the kids,
no cleaning,
no cooking.
no walking the dog no nothing....

But i cant!!!!
I cant let myself be a couch potatoe!!!
If i dont go for my morning walk i will feel tense all day!
if i dont go to work my paycheck will be short, and i casnt afford that!
if i dont work out today im just letting all my past efforts go to out the window!if i dont play with my kid ill just miss her more later,
if i dont clean today, tommorrow will just bring double chores,
if i dont cook today how will i assure my family eats a healthy well balanced meal?
if i dont walk the dog he will think its ok to use my rug as his personal toilet.

So i've decided that today i will keep pushing !!!!

So if your reading this right now and you're thinking of taking today off or even considering it ....DONT! Keep pushing Sparkers Together we can do this!

60 days to a better body today is day 10, I won't give up!

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Is anyone out there, facing a hard challenge right now? is this challenge so hard that you feel like giving up but at the same time you want it so bad! I know this feeling! and if you are feeling this way i have one thing to Say to you... DONT GIVE UP!!!


Today is day 10! Can you believe it! ive never worked out so hard in my life! This is definetly extreme cardio, sweat, body and heart pumping work out! but i love this challenge!

day nine was insane, i could barely complete each excersize, but i stood in front of my tv and attempted it! My husband is getting so good at this! he has completed every work out from begining to end without quitting or taking breaks.

Once again after my work out i had shin splints, it hurt like crazy, i completed the work out and the stretch to the best of my ability given this pain on my shins, then i took a warm bath, the warm water running on my shins completely eased my pain. once my bath was done the pain came back! so i took some motrin and laid my legs up , massaged them a little and called it a night. this morning i havent had any pain, however im going to do a couple shin excersizes through out my day to see if this helps heal them.

i refuse to give up! Today is day 10! Cardio recovery, will be mostly stregth training, so i will once again stand in front of that tv and attempt to complete this work out! Hopefully my shins wont give me such problems today, but if they do i will pace myself and try again tomorrow, but i wont give up! i refuse to give up! i must complete this 60 days! even if every day i try i fail i will still try!

Lets all face our challenges today! lets look fear in the face and say im not giving up! Im not going to quit! i refuse to stop! I will push through! i will make it work! i will suceed!
