September Goals

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

So many things have already made the end of this challenge more difficult. Between grad classes, work and home, I'm stretched pretty thin...thank gooodness for God's grace. I am determined to press on. I am looking forward to everything Fall has to offer: WIN challenge, holidays, long overdue family time, everything apple, and vacation.

I have set a few goals for September:

emoticonComplete all grad course work on time...and get ahead when possible.

emoticonDrink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

emoticonAchieve at least 90 minutes of cardio a week.

emoticonLose 3-5 pounds.

emoticonTake one evening a week for just me.

A little less me!

Sunday, September 05, 2010

My amazing husband planned a weekend getaway for the two of us to Williamsburg, VA last weekend. It was wonderful! We met up with our friends and went to Busch Gardens, where I walked and laughed my heart silly. We took some pictures at Yankee Candle. They have this beautiful Christmas room. When I looked at these pictures I was really pleased. I could tell I had lost some weight. Though others may not have the same appreciation when they see me, I know that I am truly receiving a reward for my hard work. 13lbs down!

A Bit of Goal Revamping...(new goal collage)

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I am 12lbs down and determined to get to 15. I will then be mere pounds away from my halfway goal. With all of the changes that have affected my previously set goals, I have had to do some readjusting. I have made a new collage that sets goals from now until the end of October.

The first picture represents the 5k walk that I will attempt to complete in 45 minutes on September 12th (weather permitting).

The second picture represents the three major certification tests I have to take and pass in order to complete my student teaching in the Spring. The Praxis II will be on September 18 and the VCLA and VRA will be completed on September 25. These are major tests and any prayer would be appreciated.

The final picture represents our upcoming trip to Hershey, PA. We will be gone during the third week of October. My goal is to lose 5-7lbs by then. We will be celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary:)

The quote is one from a book that continues to speak to my heart and soul. The book is Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul by John and Stasi Eldredge.

Weightloss Speedbump

Saturday, August 21, 2010

I had a hard time getting over the 5-7lb mark a couple months ago. It appears I have reached another road block. I am having a hard time overcoming the 13lb mark. I keep fluctuating between 12-12.8 and I can't make it past. This week was not a good week as far as eating and working out...which does not help. However, I am still finding it a struggle. I'm not doubting that I can do this, its just my motivation is suffering slightly...up, up the hill I go...

    i understand where are coming from a while back when i lost most of my weight i was constantly wanted/ and getting on the scale hoping the see the numbers moving in the right direction.
Really it was so bad that i even had several scales to to make sure that the other one was broke and that i had lost. But one day when you are not looking the weight will not slipping away again. So keep your chin up, it is a long hard road but the reward is great.

Vacation Anticipation

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

All the talk about summer vacations as the students return to school makes me long for my own. Clinton and I have a vacation planned in October to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary. We will be going to PA and staying in a cute little house in Hershey. We have plans to visit the Hershey Chocolate factory/museum (no temptation there lol), the Hershey Zoo, and a weekend renaissance fair. We will also head into Lancaster to visit the Amish stores and hopefully get in a buggy ride. The dogs will be staying with the in-laws so we will have no worries:) I can't wait!!!!

    Sounds like fun!!! I have always wanted to go there and also to Boston. This October we are going to Maine and taking my aunt w/ us b/c it has been a life long dream of hers. (She has a rapidly growing brain tumor so we want to make this last wish come true for her.) Maybe next yr. I will make it to Hershey...you'll have to tell me about your trip.
You asked where at in IN I live...Odon. It's a small amish communty in southern Indiana. About 3.5 hrs from Francesville.
We live across from several amish and two amish schools. We have become friends w/ several families and have enjoyed learning about their ways...
I stayed on track today after the fair fiasco yesterday and exercised my bum off!
Hope you have a great week.
