A Fresh Start

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Over the course of a couple years now I've been making excuses for myself for skipping the gym or to enter my nutrition and fitness into sparkpeople. Unfortunately this is all adding up on my health. Also adding to the problem was a high stress level desk job armed with a vending machine. I would pay several visits to that machine paying the price in more ways than one. I've gain quite a bit of wait over the course of 2 years mainly since July of last year but have been turning a blind eye until today.

Today is a new day and I believe my top priority should be me. I quit the desk job in June thinking that would be enough but now my eating habits are still out of whack along with my very inconsistent work out schedule. So here I am spark. I've come back to you because I know that I will succeed with you. I plan on being able to get to my ultimate goal of 135 but it will be a long process and I'm determined to rise to that challenge. For the time being I'm seeking to reach a closer goal of 180. To get to this I'm making it to a goal to be more consistent- tracking all of my food and exercise. Armed with this I know I cannot fail!

A different way

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

So over the course of my new job I've been noticing a trend. i have been eating poorly and not exercising. Weird how that is correlating with my gaining weight trend, huh? :P Anyway, I'm trying to use this to my advantage to analyze what I'm doing differently. First I'm not keeping track. That needs to change. Second I'm choosing poorly-which would be okay sometimes, but I'm doing this all of the time. Third I haven't been regularly exercising or moving much at all..(stupid sit down job). Those are really it. It's funny because sometimes i almost feel as though gaining this bit of weight makes me a failure but really I'm not. I have no reason to label it as that. I'm still so much further along then I was back in 2007 weighing over 250 pounds. I want to live healthy and know that I'm doing everything I can prevent future health problems and I feel like I have recently pushed that aside. Well now is the time to change that. I feel that this day is the perfect day to start a new and get back on the journey to a long life of prevention and fulfilled living.

    I recently read the book "The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl" by Shauna Reid. (

nd what I really liked about it was that it was about the first 5 or 6 years of her journey. During which she lost and gained weight, got to know herself better, moved to a different country, and just basically lived her life.

I suppose there are some, who wake up one day and say "I'm going to lose this weight" and then proceed to do exactly that. Exercise, eat right, lose the weight. Boom. Done.

But most of the people I come across, it seems to be more of a hilly windy road, that a straight shot from point A to point B. In my case I started in 2006, lost 80 pounds in less than 6 months. Gained all but 10 of it back over the next year and a half. In the middle of 2008, I started again. But this time I wasn't in a rush, I wasn't trying to get skinny, or prove anything to anybody. I just wanted to be healthier, and be a better me. I think the difference was the first time I made my life ABOUT exercise and eating right. Now those things are a part of my life, but they don't define my life.

Anyway, I think you're doing emoticon !

Getting back on track

Sunday, January 17, 2010

So I've hade a lot going on lately and my health took a back seat. Since then I'm working to get bak into action healthwise. I recently lost my Gym membership so I was looking into getting a new one that worked better for me. I really need a 24 hr place to get fit since my old gym would be closed by the time I left work. With that said I decided that I didn't care the cost this is something I need to be my best. I went to a gym to enroll and ended up leaving the gym with a free one year membership. How GREAT is that? I had been wanting this so badly and ended up getting it for free and it is 24 hours so I have no excuses!!!! I love it. I went today for the first time and I'm feeling thankful and blessed. God works in mysterious ways is all I can say. I feel like I must be meant to be there. Life is wonderful right now. I still have worries but my blessings are outnumbering them by so many. I'm excited to get to my goals!
I'm blessed to be here.

I am starting to see myself slip into old habits. This week I'm going to try very hard to get back into working out like I should be. I haven't fallen off the wagon but I feel as though I may if I don't do anything. I need to put myself first and I know that I have to do this to be truly happy....

    I was looking for a little inspiration today and stumbled across your blog. Going back to the beginning and seeing your whole journey, and your amazing attitude through the whole thing, has inspired me. You always have such a positive attitude no matter what. I'm a terrible perfectionist and won't even try something if I can't be perfect at it, if there is even the possibility of failure, but your journey has inspired me to take a new attitude, to see the successes instead of the failures. Not just in trying to be healthier, but in all aspects of my life. So I just wanted to drop you a note to say, THANK YOU! You have all you need inside you to make all your dreams come true. And I'm beginning to see that this may be true for me as well.

    You are an inspiration. Good on you for noticing your attitude and working to not let it pull you into the eat more, move less vortex.

Training: Week 1

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

So I'm training to become a long distance runner! I started this week and so far haven't died. My first short-term goal is to run a mile without stopping. I know I can do it. I found a chart to help me reach this goal here in spark and I know it will help me out greatly. According to my calculations I should be running a non stop mile by July 27th!!!!!! I'm so proud of the work I've put in thus far. I'm trying not to push myself too hard because I don't want to discourage myself. So I'm doing this the right way. Taking days off to rest my body like I'm supposed to and keeping to my schedule. This is the first time that I have ever really had a organized and structured workout at least when it comes to running. In the past I just ran without paying attention to distance vs. time. Just recorded whatever my pedometer said....Now I've got my stop watch in hand. It's great! I feel myself improving everyday!

  I am so jealous
there was a time in my life I'd have had a good shot at being a long distance runner but as a bulemic I had an all or nothing mentality.
I did more than I should have, longer than I should have, and on rougher terrain than I had business being on.
I screwed up both my ankles and knees .
It is so logical to start slow and build strength.

my ill gotten advice
lie low if it hurts and do something else to stay strong!
