New me, for real this time! (Week 1)

Friday, April 03, 2009

March 30, - April 4, 2009
This was the first week I got up 4 out 7 days and made it to the gym before 5:30am. I kept complaining that I did not have the time to work out and you know excuse after excuse. So I thought about how I lost 42 pounds and gained 27 of them back. So I begin to think how bad do you really want this? As I looked in my closet and tried on my size 12 jeans and could not get them up, I got upset with myself. I gave all my larger clothes away so now I have to buy a few outfits to get me through. What a waste of money. So this is week one of the “New me, for real this time!”
I will get up at least 4 out 7 days and go to the gym before work.
I will drink water.
I will blog.
I will journal my food.
I will lost the 27 pounds I gained and about 30-40 more.
I will do this with the help of God and all my fellow sparkers.
September 9, 2009 I want to weight in at 170 pounds.

When you lose your Motivation

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

What happen to the motivation you once had? Did you lose all the weight you want? Or did you give up on self? Sometimes you may just lose focus. That is okay but once you find your focus again go full force into it again but this time know you limits. Many were motivated to get in that dress or look good for the party. What happens after the dress and the party? Life continues on, but does your healthy lifestyle continue on as well? I once said find whatever motivates you and hold on. Well I did that but a distraction came and I lose my focus and my motivation. What do I do next? Pick up where I left off and acknowledge your mistake and move on. Sometime we get so caught up in meeting a goal that we can not seem to think of anything else. So when a distraction come we lose focus on that goal. My goal for now on is to live healthy and never lose focus. Allow yourself some space for those little distractions. Be thankful for them because the often come with lessons and some unexpected blessings. When you have lost your focus and/or motivation do not fret just find that motivation again and keep moving.

Peace. Love and Blessing,

Motivation is easy to give. But what motivates you? For me it is simple. My family. I think about how I felt at thirteen years old staring into a casket that held the remains of my mother. That is a feeling I don’t want my children to have to ever feel. I enjoy their laughter and even their anger. Therefore my true motivation is my children their love for me and my love for them. My husband has told me before that I complete him, so I have to be here for him. I have to stay healthy because my youngest son has promise me the Hisesman trophy and I want be here for his speech. My oldest told me he would be a Pulitzer Prize winning marine biologist; I have to be here for that as well. Not to mention to see them graduate high school then college. Find your motivation and hold on to it. It doesn’t matter if it is a dress, health, or just to look good naked. Whatever yours is grab it and hold on to it, it will carry you through many tough times.

Peace and Blessing,

It is not Easy

Thursday, October 11, 2007

Who said life was easy or fair. Losing weight is a part of life. Therefore, it will not be easy. But it will be worth it. Sometimes we have bad days, so what!! That doesn't mean keep eating because we had a piece of cake at lunch. When we do that we get on the scale and we get upset. It is a battle, a battle of the mind and of self control. I know putting on the weight was so easy but taking it off is so hard. Be encourage that we all have the same struggle at some point. But don't give up keep going. If your friends are not help get a new set of friends. Why walk with the chickens when you can soar with the eagles. :) We all know that eagles are rare. So go on be that rare beauty.
