a major step back

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

My April goals didn't go so good. I took a major step backwards. I am so sick of playing around and not keeping my promise to myself to eat healthy and be healthy. It is never too late to start tho.

I was honest and posted my weight even tho it went up.

Now I am gonna look at my goals again. Both longterm, med, and short. I will be posting it on my blog a reference for myself.

I am also gonna post them on my profile page as I reach them.

I have already stayed in calorie range and walked 40 min 2 days in a row.

This is gonna be a great new start

    Tomorrow is another day. Today was NOT a good eating day for me--if it was in the house I ate it. But I have menu & workout planned for tomorrow...

    Sounds like a fantastic new start to me. I keep asking myself the same question....why can't I stay on track? *sigh* Today is my first day back. I walked for 40 minutes as well and I was within my calorie range too for the first day in awhile. Here's to new starts! We can do it!

    Little by little you will do it. You didn't gain all the weight at one time, you're not going to lose it all at one time either.

    I think you are wise to break down your goals into long term, medium and short term. I also think that posting it in a blog as a reference to yourself will help to keep you accountable to yourself. You're off to a great start! Keep up the great work! emoticon emoticon

april goals

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

ahh!! a new month. i love april. it is the beginning of beautiful weather. a chance to go outside and enjoy a walk or jog in the park. take my puppy for a walk or just go on my patio and relax and read.

my goals for april:

i am on day 4 of 30 day shred. i am not doing it exactly like she says. i do it 3 days a week and alternate my couch to 5k on the other days.

1. get through my 30 day shred
2. get through my couch to5 k and be able to jog a 12 min mile
3. stay away from nighttime nibbling. breads are my main problem here
4. no sugar!!!

i want to remain active on spark boards and teams and be supportive of other members
i also want to continue to try new recipes on a weekly basis

good luch to everyone out there sparking

a fresh start on my running

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

i started my running again. it has only been about 2 weeks since i ran but i need to be more dedicated to it. i want it be a passion.

i tried starting at wk 6 day 3, which is where i stopped 2 weeks ago. i didnt do too bad, but my speed was slower. it was a 22 min run. i had to walk in the middle of it for a few min.

i guess all in all, that is not too bad. i think i will stay there until i am stronger/

i am concentrating on fueling my body better. this will def help me in my journey.

all i need is some sunshine and warm weather in nothern ohio so i can go outside to run...

I just took up running a few weeks ago and I like the challenge but I am not sure at this point if I will ever be passionate about it. We will see in time.
Great job in starting up again.

    yes, making it a healthy habit - a passion even - takes consistent effort, doesn't it! I'm quite new to running (about 9 weeks now I think) and I love it when I do it, but find I get days when I don't feel like it - and then that becomes two or three days - then when I get out there again - I love it! At least the cool weather is comfortable to run in :D

what was i thinking- i will never give up

Monday, March 25, 2013

i dont care how many times it takes for me to learn these lessons--

I AM NOT GIVING UP

i am taking my focus off of food. i think on some diet programs, you are thinking of food all the time. what will i eat next, what will i eat tmr, what will my snack be before bed/

well, i have been reading a lot lateley. i am gonna take the focus off of food. spark people has been telling me this for as long as i have been using it. i guess i am a slow learner..

i have been playing arround with c25k. i guess i am not real dedicated tho. i dont have that passion cause there are some weeks that i dont even do it.

well, i am gonna up the ante on my running. that will take my focus off food. of course, i have to eat the proper foods, but i will be eating to help fuel my body for a good run. this is my passion. i did this once before years ago. it felt great.

i rented a running book from library, i joined 4 running spark teams and i am gonna do spark people rookie running program instead of c25k.

i am excited that i have another purpose for eating right.

before i was eating to lose weight. getting aggravated cause the scale would not go down fast enough. now, i am eating and fueling my body for a good run which has a ton of other benefits.

here is to a great start to my running passion

a reality check

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

saturday i had a huge reality check.

i was tired of not having anything nice to wear. i have 1 pair of jeans that fit me. i just keep waiting for the others to fit me. since i was going to a birthday party, i thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get something.

REALITY CHECK i have graduated to plus sizes.

that was a tough one. i managed to get in a size 14 pants and a 1x shirt. this is embarrassing. i didnt want my husband to know. somehow, he found out. i was really embarrassed by it. he just made a funny face like wow he couldnt believe it.

so now, that is my incentive. i want to buy cute little clothes. not big clothes.

i sucked it up, bought the clothes, but this is only temporary. the next time i shop, it will be smaller sizes

    Yikes! I know you are disappointed but turn that into fuel for your fire. I have an old sweatshirt that I keep as a reminder of where I came from. When I start slacking, some how I always run into it. Then I get "mad" and say No Way.

Turn this into motivation! You can do it.
