Yay for Mom, Yay for Me!

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

So something truly awesome happened to my mom today. Anyone who knows my mom knows that she is not only super cute, fun, and awesome, but she has been dealt kind of a rough hand health wise. On bright side she's been able to get her health in check and is better now than she was a year ago. Anyway today she went to rejoin the Y and the lady helping her register told her that she qualified for a free membership for a year. Considering my mom isn't exactly rolling in the dough this is totally huge for her. I'm so happy for her. She deserves this more than anyone else. After having such a rough couple of years the tide has finally turned her way. She called me this afternoon just glowing about it.

Along those same lines I'm also rejoining the Y. I just have to wait for my financial assistance letter to come in the mail. Though I don't think I'll qualify for the free membership, I'll be happy with whatever I get. I cannot wait to get back to the gym and have a proper workout. It's been soooo cold outside lately that I haven't been walking downtown as much. Plus I haven't gone running in the park nearby for like a month. So I feel pretty much like a slob and a lazy bum. So soon I shall be getting back to running on my beloved indoor track, getting buff on the strength training machines, and oh don't let me forget the elliptical. And I feel the Y is a bit safer than random downtown park, so that is a bonus.

Also I just got an email from apple telling me to be expecting my replacement iPod within the next week. It's been out of commission for a couple months now and a couple weeks ago I finally sent the poor thing in. It seems that apple hasn't screwed me over on the charges, in fact the price seems very low considering they quoted me a much higher price. I'll have to wait and see if there is an additional charge added to my card. But whatever happens, happens. I'm happy either way and have much to look forward to.

One Step at a Time

Friday, November 14, 2008

I've been making some progress towards becoming healthier. I recently have been making better choices about what I eat. I've had a problem with temptation of indulgent foods for the last few months. Each time I was tempted I gave in and said "yes, I'll have that." Well last night I said "No!" Let me begin by saying I don't think eating dessert is bad. I was just eating it at every given opportunity. I feel if I just cut back in the indulgences then it will make my journey toward the best me an easier one. So last night I went to see my mom and she offered me ice cream and though it would have been delicious I finally said no. I worry every time I go over to see my mom, because she's bound to shove some kind of chocolate, pie, or ice cream under my nose. I finally I didn't give in. I'm so proud of myself. I just need to remember that I should not say yes all the time. It's nice to have a cookie but make it every once in a awhile. Not everyday.

Also as a way in progress physically I decided that I need to renew my gym membership. It is just too cold and soggy for me to exercise outdoors. I grabbed a financial assistance form a couple days ago, filled it out, and turned it back in the same day. Hopefully I'll get a reward letter soon. I really can't wait to get back on the running track and elliptical. Those were the two things that helped me to succeed in the past and I know that they'll be my key to future success. I also have a coupon that will waive my joiners fee so that would help me out greatly. I really cannot wait to get back in the gym! emoticon

I'm so excited about what is to come in my future. I've yet o reach my ultimate goal of 135 lbs but I know I can do it. I'm not that far away. I weighed in today at 159.5 so that makes my goal less than 25 lbs away. I know I can do this. I will do this!

Renewing my Commitment to Stay Healthy

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

After a long hiatus from the world of spark I've slowly drifted into bad nutrition & fitness habits. I'm not going as far as to say that I'm terrible at eating the right foods or exercising, but I've been making very poor choices in the last couple of months. So today I'm recommiting myself to making better healthier choices. I'm going down today to pick up a finacial assistance paper for my local gym because though I really can't afford a membership I know in the long run it will pay off big time. I miss being able to work out even when the weather is terrible. I miss running on the track and the elliptical. I miss swimming. I miss using the weights and being excited about moving up 5 more pounds on them.

So it's time to get myself back into action. Stay healthy and be the best person I can be. I want to have a long active and happy life. I'm never giving up. I've come so far from when I began a year & a half ago. The last thing I would want is to slip back into old habits.

This sparkthing is very difficult to do withoout the internet so I'm going have to figure out a system to keep track of the food I eat so I can just enter it when I find free internet access somewhere. So I'm going to have to keep a journal handy on me at all times or something.

I know I can do it. I still have my ultimate goal in mind that I have yet to reach. But I know I can do it I've been meeting my goals all along and I'm still proud to be where I am today. But if I don't stop the path I'm currently going down and take another route then I will be back to were I was before I even new about spark. That is NOT a place I'll ever be willing to revisit!


I'm still alive

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Hey everyone! I just wanted you to know that I'm around, but I'm having a hard time keeping up with spark. It's pretty tough considering that I don't have the internet anymore. It's just too expensive. But the good news is that I still watch what I eat. Though I haven't lost anything in a while. I'm really just maintaining right now which is very good. I love my new apartment and I've met quite a few interesting people around downtown. I usually walk everywhere down there and I cannot wait for this summer when the festival begins. But I'm not abandoning spark I'm just kind of figuring things out with my new apartment first . Once I get that organized I'll figure out a system to help me update my spark a little more often.

    Hi! It's great that you are still watching what you eat and maintaining. Maintaining is success too!!!! I don't know about you but losing and maintaining was never easy before sparkpeople. Usually it was lose a little and gain back more, lol. How exciting to be young and out on your own for the first time, good for you. Take care,

Hi everyone! I feel like this update was necessary because I've been neglecting SP for over a week. I'm still alive and well but I've had "a lot on my plate" recently. I'm moving out on my own for the first time on Friday and the past month has been super stressful. So sparkpeople has been put on the back burner temporarily. I'm not sure if I'll have the internet at my new apartment that depends if anyone else has unprotected wireless floating around. Lets hope someone does.

anyway I work in the morning and I'm beat from packing all day. It's time for a good nights rest

    Hi! Sounds like you've been busy!! WOW, out on your own for the first time. Good for you! Will you have a room mate or totally on your own? Totally on my own is something I never have done. I moved straight from my parents to my house with my husband. Unreal. That's all I have to say about that,lol.
