Time to get it together!!! (even though it is December:)

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Well, here I am again! I am about the same weight I was last year...and the year before..and the year before! Trying to not be frustrated with that! I just seem to say Tomorrow all toooo often!
I have been doing Turbo Fire, started it in October. I really was doing well, sticking with the schedule, then Thanksgiving hit and I just haven't regained my motivation. Had an illness thrown in there also.
So, this morning I started my third month of TF...week 9! My goal is to complete the 3 month schedule, no matter how much time it takes me:) I am realizing my motivation would like be higher had I been really trying to eat well during this time, so I would see results!!!! DUH!!!
Going to try and get back to posting here in Spark and I also am part of a support group on Facebook that is helpful!
Here is to working on my eating and finishing the TF schedule !!! HIIT 15 and sculpt 30 DONE this morning!!!!

    How do you like Hip Hop Abs?? I bought it when it went on sale...but, haven't done any of the videos yet since I am doing Turbo Fire right now:)
And you are right..I really do need to set some mini goals!!!

    That's awesome you are doing turbo fire. I am currently doing hip hop abs by beach body. I will do Turbo Jam next, and eventually Turbo Fire.
I plan to get back into the Hip Hop Abs beginning tomorrow. I was out for two weeks with bronchitis and a sinus infection and it was hard to breathe when I worked out.
Keep up the good work. Set yourself some mini goals and you will find it gets easier with time to reach those goals.

Day 11 and 12- Dog gone Bday's!!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

I am looking at yesterday and today with different emotions! Yesterday, I gave myself the day off of exercise. It was my bday...I made it through the day eating well...had already told myself I would let myself enjoy my outing to my favorite mexian place:) I did just that! Left will feeling of regret! But, still reflecting on the day....I was really proud of not blowing the whole darn day. That is what I would usually do!
Today...again, good day of eating..until after I dropped my kids off with grandparents. They are spending a few days away:) I am really excited to have a break. I felt like doing something that I really enjoy and that is eating Taco Bell:) AND I did just that! AND no exercise today!
And so, here I sit...it is Wednesday, I am exhausted and am thinking about my weigh in Friday. Was hoping I would break into the 170's and not sure that is going to happen now! I am going to plan to get up tomorrow morning early and get my workout in before work! I just need to do that and get used to it. Soon, school will be starting and I will have no time in the evenings again anyway!
UGH!!! This is a battle!!!

    You are doing great!!! Progress is progress even if some days that means you only ate half the bag where as before you would have eaten the entire bag! The struggles do get easier. Your blogs will become just a run-down of your day w/o struggles, you'll see. emoticon
Until those pesky struggles come back for a while! it's seems they come and go!

Day 9 and 10!

Monday, August 01, 2011

Well Day 9 went better. I did another session of Turbo Jam..did the Punch Kick and Jam video and I really liked it!! Ate better for the most part. I feel so much better after exercising..it is amazing how different of an outlook I have:) It helped me get so much more accomplished at home with my housework! And according to my body bugg..I burned the most calories I have burned in a day on Sunday!! That was motivating!!
Day 10 which was today has been good. I did work out tonight...and was a bit tired. Felt it in my body..so just did 20 min turbo and 20 min ab jam. Found out don't burn as many calories with those two together:)
Some things I have got to work on is my eating...working on taking lunch and snacks to work!! And also to put the scale away!! I am somewhat frustrated with it....seems like I should have lost more than I have!
Again..Its a process..and I have to take it one day at a time! Here is to a great August!!!


Operation Health : Day 6, 7, and 8:) oops!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Well, realized I have not been keeping up with my blogging:)
In summary...Thursday, had a very good day! I kept within calorie range and got my workout in. Felt good about the fact that I got back on the wagon after the work bday celeb. cave. Friday (Day 7), was another bday celebration at work! (YES...there really are a lot of celebrations at my job). I did very well, resisted temptation! BUT, had a friend's bday celebration to get through that evening, where I didn't fair so well:( We had a really good time and it was good to see everyone! BUT, I need to learn to make better choices when I am at these events!! What I end up doing is drinking a few too many beers, and then this affects my day the next day! Friday, I had planned to take a day off from exercising...but, I didn't plan that for today. Since I didn't get up early and do it...I didn't get it in because of kids.

So, tomorrow, I will get up early..and I will eat within my calorie range...AND NOT let this deter me!!! :)

Operation Health : Day 4 and 5

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Combining my thoughts from yesterday and today.

Yesterday, good eating day..but, didn't get my work out in last night because of some plans that came up. TODAY..BAD eating day, but I did workout..did 50 minutes of Turbo Jam and also walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. I was pretty frustrated with myself about my choices today. We celebrate birthdays at work one day a month..and i failed the NO test:) But, I am proud of myself for working out, as in the past I would have said, why bother...I already blew this day!

Its all a process, and I have to remember that!!

    You are so right SG11505:) I am happy with the fact that I did get in there and exercise and more importantly have not let it ruin my whole week. Which is something I have done in the past! Live and learn:) But, I will have a better plan in place for next month!

    It sure is as process. Sounds like you did pretty well, even if you did 'fail' at the food choices. You're still going! You got in your exercises, and you know that you will have next month's birthday day as an opportunity to improve!
