Putting it into perspective.

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Today I read the 2nd chapter of the spark book. It made me think of why I am on this site everyday. Is b/c I want to look good in my wedding dress? Is it b/c I want the scale to say what it used to before I became an adult? Is it b/c I want to be looked like I am the person in the front of the group and not the person in the back?

Yes yes and yes, but I have come to the conclusion it is more than that.

I am on this site for a million reasons all tied together. This is just the beginning. A healthy lifestyle and a manageable weight will lead to all of the other things that I want to accomplish in this lifetime.
If I start here with this spark it will help me sort out my future with a career, it will help me manage my time better, it will help do more in my day. I will help be a better mother to my daughter and a better soon to be wife to my man. It will help reach a goal of more clarity, less stress and a stronger connection to a higher presence in my life. It will help me clean the house better, be a nicer person to guests where I work , and bring me closer to my family.
So putting it into perspective this is no longer a diet.

This is a stepping stone to a more positive , and fulfilling life and I cant wait to get started.

So is the spark to you?

The 20th day 2

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Ok I am exaggerating just a bit....

It will stick this time. I have everything I need. I have time mapped out everyday. I have even found a buddy to go workout with. Most of all I hung my wedding dress up where I can see it everyday. That alone is motivation enough.

Today I hopped on the treadmill for 30 minutes, and used one of coach nicole's videos. You dont think since minutes would be a workout until you try it!

I had and awesome breakfast and for lucnh I am doing nothing but fruit and veggies. I am in love with the green giant. He makes everything taste yummy!

My only obstacle of the day is to get throuhg work. If I can kick the habit of eating what I see there I will be well on my way! The cheese fries will not stop me today!!!!

Ok at the end of the day today, sit down and ponder over whta you have actually done today, and then realize that the 200 errands you ran plus children, work, working out, and every cleaning thing that you did really adds up!

I took my child to daycare today so that I could run every errand I could think of. Lets see I have been to Kroger, that bank, I had my watch fixed, I have been tanning, to 4 other stores, I have worked out for an hour, cleaned out my garage. then I will pick up my child , make dinner, clean the house after she goes to bed,, and then maybe take a bath. Wow that really adds up.

I am super mommy, and thats with only one child!

What have YOU done today?


The day off!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

One more day until i have a day off, and not just a day off to be bad, but a day off from work and cleaning and most other things. I have someone coming to clean my house, someone to clean my carpet, and I am going to the spa!!!!! And then I am going out for drink with other couples,, wow a social life too ,, who knew? So today Ill be trying a new video, and hitting the treadmill for 30 minutes. And today I am making som fruit cups like I had at work last night. So yummy.
I know its hard on this day of the week /b c temtations are great in the middle of the week. so today find something you really like to eat that is also healthy and count every activity as some calorie loss, it will make your temtations go away,, hopefully any way....

Number 2

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

How many people have a #2 blog? Its the second day and you do pretty good. And then the week wears on and day four and five become harder and by day six your thinking about just starting all over again with day 1. What a vicious cycle... So I have decided on day 4 to be a day off. That way day 5 is more like day one. And my vicous cycle gets just a little bit shorter.
Back to 25 minutes on the treadmill, and everyday this week I am trying a new video from coach nicole. The butt blaster was short and to the point and I felt it this morning. Today i am trying something upper body. One day I will lose the flabby stuff.
Alright lets have day 2!!!

    I'm done with counting days for now... but if I know me, I'll start counting the number of days I don't count... if that makes any sense... even if it makes no sense...

The point I want to make is that I don't care if today is day 1 or day 395. I'm just going to do the best that I can. That may mean I'm right on cue with calories and exercise or it may mean that the raging hormonal monster comes out and I eat 3 candy bars and a bowl of ice cream. But if that is the BEST I can do, then so be it. No more beating myself up.

Does that sound like I'm giving myself permission to binge? If it does, then the message is garbled and I don't know how to explain it. I just need balance and the stress of keeping up a streak throws me off balance and I seem to wind up binging more and exercising less. So I guess I'm doing what I feel I need to do and kicking the streak out the door.

I might be a bad influence! GASP!
