Sunday, October 28, 2012

Small victories.. I'm down a pound!!! I did a few miles before church with Perry Mason on my treadmill!!! YIPPEEEE!!!!

BUT... I need to make time for a long run now that my 1/2 marathon is over.

I have a practice 5K with the girls on Thursday!! It is going to be great! I'll get to run with my daughter. Very exciting!

I'm hoping for a long run tomorrow after my dentist appointment. Pray for me!!

THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

    Prayers are headed your way to get in your walk (and for a good day at the dentist, I hate them).

You seem like you are doing a fantastic job. Way to go!

It probably is 3 miles

Thursday, October 25, 2012

So.... I got to run outside tonight. I ran my 3 miles. Very exciting after my terrific morning, so I'm really happy. I came on here originally thinking about how I was going to tell you that 3 miles on my treadmill is different and MUST be longer than 3 miles because it takes me SOOOO much longer, but you know what? I wasn't exactly fast this evening. I thought I was fast. It felt so good. I felt like I was going super fast, faster than I've ran in a long time.. but you know what? I was slow.. really slow.. so my treadmill is probably correct.. and I'm a weee bit bummed about that... but it will be okay (-: I was actually torn tonight about whether or not I even wanted to go outside. I was going to stay in and watch Perry Mason on the treadmill. that is an exciting evolution for me.. if you remember a week ago I was not loving my treadmill at all and now I almost stayed inside to be on it! The weather is beautiful today and I am really glad I got to go outside. It was really really nice!

Looking forward to more movement tomorrow (maybe with Perry Mason) LOL

    That is great that you might get yourself into a habit now! (with the treadmill and Perry Mason)

    I think running on the treadmill is much harder in some ways. I have to crank the speed way up to get the same heart I get at a lower speed outdoors. I also like to see the scenery pass me by. However, when you've seen one huge snow pile, you've seen them all. I will be putting in the mikes in my treadmill this winter!

Keep up the great work!

New DAy!

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I'm so glad each day is NEW.. Each moment is NEW! we can decide to make a better decision in the next moment.

So I made the decision right this moment to stop typing the blog and to do the exercise I missed yesterday! Time is crunchy but isn't it always.

I just ran the kids to school, made and distributed copies while I was there. Now, if only I could get to my sewing pile after my 3 miles tonight (-:

  I always say each day is a new day and a new start point. Helps to keep me on track, forgives my past failures or oops and rewards my determination by starting new. emoticon

inspiring tuesday

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I'm inspired today. I woke up on time had time to read my bible. I'm having a great day at work so far! I'm grateful for every blessing the good Lord has seen fit to bestow on me (including my spark friends). The past few days have been challenging with my son's birthday making things very busy too busy to keep track. All and all though I think I've made good food choices... just no time for exercise. Three miles on the calendar today.

Having a fabulous day!

Now sheee's skinny

Friday, October 19, 2012

I don't know about ya'll but what keeps me going right now is that people I always looked at and went "Dang she's all so much skinnier than I am" or "I want to look like that," are now looking at me and saying that to themselves. It just feels to good to have your accomplishments recognized.

BUT at the same time as if it is a race and I was always the fat girl in the group, my one friend is all, "Oh how can I get back on track" and "I'm such a looser," and in the next breath "you look so good." Now from where I sit she's not gained anything but is it a contest? do I have to stay the fat girl? what because I now finally look nice in a pair of jeans, instead of pouring out of them with a muffin top, you need to loose a size? Just feeling a little like.. really ya'll?

Anyway.. back to having my spark back... Thank you all for your support emoticon . I coach a girls running group after school, so I ran out of time yesterday.. got lazy talked myself out of it, so I only tracked what I ran with the girls.. but I'm back on track today. I've got 3 miles on the agenda and its gonna happen. emoticon

TGIF

    It is definitely not a contest as you said. We each go at our own pace and that is fine by me. Making a contest out of it causes too much pressure!

    Good for you. Don't make it into a contest even if your friend makes those comments, let them go in one ear and out the other! emoticon
