Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I wished I could have that awesome music playing when you opened this Blog. I hit my lost 10lbs mark today. I thought surely the scale was wrong when it said 165...I moved it and weighed myself a couple more times. I'm sooo excited I'm really losing it!!! Thank you Sparkpeople for your cool videos and constant motivation. I got 10 more to go to reach my goal...I think I can totally do this now. The funny thing is I wanted to do this before my husband got back from his deployment. He just hit his halfway mark so its totally possible! :)

Need food couseling..Im addicted to junk

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Since my last post I am roller coaster girl. I go great for a few days of exercise and eating right and I get busy zooming all over to take care of things and dont eat or grab fast food and try to make a right choice but there is nothing good on the menu. Then Saturday I acted like a junkie...I went to the movies with my son and instead of walking past the butter dispenser I piled it on and ate almost an entire bag of cherry sours. I was so sick that night, I woke up and I was miserable...
You know what it is...I just realized this while typing I do not track my food on the weekend. When I dont track my food I fall off the wagon. Everything changes because I dont get up to exercise as I normally do in the week because I want that extra hour or two of sleep. Then I squeeze in something somewhere (usually a jog), and I feel great but I will have date night with my boys and eat icecream and junk food. I am realizing that I have an issue at home... hmmmm.... I really got to keep myself on a schedule. That is my goal for this weekend to do as I always do. Even get up when I do I think. If I can get a nap in great but I got to stick to my schedule. Can I do it? Thats the question.....Im sure gonna try!

Fell off the Wagon...Sad :(

Friday, February 03, 2012

I got to get back on track! I totally fell off the wagon yesterday. I felt like a drug addict, once I knew I went over my daily calories I said "Forget it all!!!" and Binge ate all day!! I ate an entire package of sliced Salami on the way home last night with half a box of crackers! What is wrong with me. I feel like crap today...I donít know if its because Im ashamed or I feel heavy because of what I ate. Then I got on the scale and up 3 lbs!!!!
Totally bummed...
I did get up and do day 3 of the 7 day Bootcamp but just feel sluggish and yuck! I got to get that spark under me again..I dont want to give up!!

    So...13ish days later...how are you doing? I must be on your schedule too. Not doing good with exercising, and I ate a HUGE prime rib last night, and fried fresh homemade breaded mushrooms, and 3 jumbo fried shrimp, and a glass of wine, and a cup or so of salad.....and a plain sweet potato (like that made up for the huge slab of meat on my plate) ug.

The 3 Day...Who is in???

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I had registered to do the 3 day last year and was not able to do so because I had an issue with my foot. I reached my goal of fund raising and everything! What a disappointment! I refuse to give up! Cancer is very near and dear to me. I lost my father to Colon Cancer 2 years ago and it was one of the worst things I ever experienced.
When my Dad was in the hospital a friend had given him this book called Crazy Sexy Cancer. He was grumpy and refused to read it because it was about breast cancer and plus he didnt want to face the reality of what was going on. Sooooo since I had the opportunity to spend so much time in the room with him I read it. I learned so much about wonderful programs to help people like him that were sitting there alone and needed someone to just push him through it. Through this book I learned of Chemo angels, its a free program just to be someone Bud and tell them to keep their head up: www.chemoangels.net
My passion began to grow through this....I was the angel to two people who faced Breast Cancer, one with Colon Cancer, and one with skin cancer. All different ages, sexes, and lifestyles. It opened my eyes...what ever I could do to make a difference I wanted to do it, and I want to let them know they are not Alone!
Soooo I signed up to do the 3 Day, a commitment of raising $2300 and walking 60 miles. 20 miles each day and a celebration of life! I am so there! Something to get healthy about and make a difference! Count me in! Soooo now Im posting this to see who is with me? I have registered to do the 3 day walk in Arizona in November but think I may change it to San Diego. Soooo Who is with me??
If you are interested in learning more about the 3 Day its www.the3day.org
Its really cool, its all over the US at different times, its a true 3 day celebration!
I built this team if anyone wants to track walking.

    My family has participated in the 3 Day since 2005 and I have walked once and crewed twice. It is a fantastic emotionally draining experience. I keep saying it was like living in a different world for 3 days. Everyone was supportive and helpful. People would help the quite injured walkers carry their food to the table, etc. It was amazing. Kudos for committing and good luck with your training.
