This is awesome!!
I am on my third day of the summer challenge (which lasts 8 weeks) and I dont know if it is because this is my first challenge or maybe the excitement of just starting but I think I am doing great!! I get up in the morning and do my workout, and I have been eating quite well.. and in this short time -I might be delusional- but I actually feel my pants a bit more loose.. which is always awesome! I feel extremely motivated and excited and I hope it stays that way!!
I read a quote someone posted saying something like "If you had done your workout the first time you thought about it... you would be done by now" and oh man is this true!!! I cant remember who it was but I am so grateful!! :P
Anyways, enough jumping around.. Unfortunately I must get back to work..
Hope everyone has a great day!!

Sooo.. after the events I described in my last post, I have started picking up all my stuff and gradually moving out to a new place.. it is NOT the most fun thing to do!! I am doing it slowly, that way I have the time to organize things before I bring some more but the good thing is that I am almost done!
I have a nicer, bigger space now and I should be able to be a lot more active once I am settled in, and I can have puppies too!!! which is awesome. :D
Food wise, I havent been doing bad, but I dont think so great either, just messy, skipping some meals and eating as I go, I have been counting calories still, but I am nor as orderly as normally.. I should have a new laptop today so hopefully I can go back to being on SP from home and not just from work, which will help me lots!
Just the rant for today.
Hope everyone has a great friday!

These past few days have been really horrible, and yesterday was no better, where I live is a very nice place, beachy, sunny, beautiful happy people, but unfortunately not very safe.. yesterday I got a call at work to come home cause someone broke in and took most of our stuff (I live with my sister), luckily noone was home and all that was lost is material and nobody got hurt. But I find myself keeping it together as I usually do, but inside I feel that I have had many challenges so far this year, and I have kept it together for my family thoroughout them all, this time, I feel like I might crumble a bit and I am scared of letting that happen.
I know it will all be ok, I just have to give it a few days and calm down but I honestly fear losing control, I dont want to be a wreck, but I also need some sort of catharsis, hopefully this entry will help.
It is not surprising to me that the first thing I did was order a ton of food when I got the lunch call at work, and to be honest I am not even hungry, I know this is just me pretending to deal with everything but not really dealing at all, I still have time to sit and rethink my decisions so I will do that.
I know this post is not as cheery as I usually am, but this too shall pass.
I hope everyone is doing wonderful.

This weekend was pretty sucky for me.. I was a bit, or a lot, under the weather, which prevented me from doing anything productive on sunday. I was a bit bummed out about it, but for some reason I found it relatively easy to stick to healthy food choices, even though at moments I was craving horrible things! I think being more active on SP and actually communicating with other people going through the same journey that I am does help a great deal.
I have found that I feel more responsible, capable, and also accountable for my actions, and amazingly enough this helps a lot with my anxiety! Who would have known the solution would be so simple.. COMMUNICATION! Sharing really goes a long way.
Anyway, I just missed ranting/blogging, since I didnt do it for a few days.. so thatīs my rant for the day!
Also, I am looking for smoothie ideas! If anyone cares to share any, I would appreciate it a lot!
Hope everyone has a lovely day

Today I woke up thinking that I had to get up and move, and I almost felt like I was going to go back to my old ways of just putting it off 'for later', I logged in SP and saw some of my sparkfriends comments on my blogs and that got me motivated, so I decided to stay in bed a bit longer, maybe finish an episode of a show I started yesterday and then get up and do my first workout of the day, I decided to do it like this in order to sort of get the workout in as part of a routine I do every day, kinda trying to make it fit the way I live and not see it as a disruption that would make me reject by default. It seems it worked just fine.
The funny thing about this is, I was doing one of the 10 minute videos that I have grown to love, I currently live with my sister, right at the end when I was stretching, my sister knocked on my door (it was locked), so instead of just opening it and let her see I was exercising, I felt like I had to hide it, I quickly took off my shoes and moved my computer to an angle that she wouldnt be able to see what I was looking at and then I opened the door.
This has me thinking, why? why would I do that? I was not doing anything bad, and I am certain that she would be very happy and supportive, so I just wonder why.. Have you guys ever experienced anything like this before?? If so, what were your conclusions as to why it happens?
Aside from that, I am feeling great, I have found SP to be amazing at motivating me to keep up with this healthy changes and even if I am going slow and taking small steps, I feel I have this newfound confidence in the process and also in myself. So thank you to my new, wonderful sparkfriends for the support.
Wish everyone has a happy, full of achievements, lovely weekend.
