First day of graduate school

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

If you ever told me that I would be in graduate school and training for five K's last year I would have told you that you need to see a doctor. I have never been so excited and afraid at the same time. I also had a double middle ear infection. I was glad that I kept up with my exercise routine with the help of my sparks couch. Ten minutes at a time. I dropped two pounds and the doctor said it helped my ears drain so I did not get as sick. I felt like staying in bed but, I got up and took the day ten minutes at a time . I am glad I did. It turned out to be a great day. I also witnessed the most wonderful sunset with my husband

Using a sparks coach

Thursday, August 08, 2013

I am trying out the sparks coach. I really love it. My goal from my couch is to plan my meals ahead of time today because today I will be eating out for every meal. for breakfast I plan to have egg whites with local veggies and wheat toast. At lunch a bowl of soup with crackers. For dinner a salad. I even saved enough calories for a small Italian sugar free icie. I can eat out with my family during our local food festival at still stay within my calorie range.

    It's great that you are getting a lot out of Spark Coach. I did it for awhile and you have reminded me that I really need to do it again. I am getting bored with what I am eating and really need to start planning my meals.

Been gone for a while

Monday, July 30, 2012

I have to get back on track. I did not reach my goals. I had a allergic reaction to something and my eyes have been swollen shut for an entire week. I had high temps. I did not keep on my 5k training schedule. I did not track my food, or even exercise. I am a little disappointed. I will get back up and start again today. The only high point is I did loose two pounds. I was just to sick to eat.

    The important thing is you haven't given up. You are still in the game. Take the setback and move forward. Jump in right where you are. :)

No excuses

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Today I was looking over he inspiration on sparks people and this one particular image really struck home. Because really I am the only obstacle standing in the way of having a healthily life. I can make excuses like there is housework, homework, family time, bad day at work, you name it but, that exactly what it all is a excuse. I am standing in the way of a goal that would only improve all those areas of my life, my health. Is anything in this life really worth trading my health for? But I am stronger than my excuses and I refuse to use them anymore. Today at 300 pounds, I started to train for a 6k. I have already complete several 5k's. My friends and family think I have lost my mind. Maybe I have. Being 300 pounds is crazier to me though.
