i m back and more determined--again

Thursday, May 31, 2012

one thing i have noticed. if i forget about weight watchers, i will do better on my healthy nutrition path. i am not sure why i keep going back to that program, but spark people works way better. it seems like i am more focused on healthy things vs all i think about is the scale and what i am gonna eat next.

i have to get a doable excercise program down. sometbing where i incorporate weights and cardio. i have been walking my dog every day for 30 min, so i have been doing something but not enough. what will work for me??? i am gonna think on this and blog later.

    I agree with Pat. I think the 28 day bootcamp with Coach Nicole is a great start for the next month.

    The challenge with ww for me is i tend to eat more veggies and beyond that i dont know. I agree with the other poster that sd it is the marketing. I have done some of coach nicoles videos and they def make u sweat. Thanks for the comments and suggestions

    This is an awesome start. I must say that my DD is doing WW and she has lost almost 30 lbs since January 9th. BUT you must find what works for YOU!! And you are 1/2 way there as you already know this. Strength training is a good add in. Start small and check our Coach Nicole's 28 day Boot Camp. Great work out.

    I do the same thing with WW - I think the marketing draws me in to their program! (and I love gadgets!!) I did find myself hyper focused on food (i.e. how much can I get for my pts, calculating pts of various items etc...) With SP, I feel more "back to basics. I also didn't like that I couldn't easily evaluate a food item for WW without pulling out a calculator. I do have many friends who love WW and are very successful on it, but I'm staying Spark =)

Good luck on the exercise plan. I think adding resistance training is a key part of the equation.

    30 minutes a day with the dog is a great start! Even now I still only do 30 to 45 minutes but we go faster and further. I find have the dog keeps me from just strolling along. We move.

Have you looked at the Spark Fitness tracker? I like the workout it set me up with. Just enough to feel the "burn" but not too hard I can't finish it.

i had a great mothers day. spent some time with my mom. and my son and husb spent time with me. my

    If it was only disastrous for the quantity of food, and not for the quality of company or events of the day, then that one piece is easily overcome. Appreciate all the good from the day!

  Happy Mothers day. We all deserve a break now and then, it helps us remember where we want to be and why we do what we do.

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I really love this challenge! My ivory falcon pals have taught me so much about spark people, sticking with the program, eating, and the importance of excercise. Even small bouts of exce

feelin great

Thursday, May 03, 2012

it has been a few days since i blogged but i am still hangin strong.

i had an awesome elliptical workout. i put it on "variety" setting. wow!! some of those inclines were killers! 30 min and i was really sweating. i wanted to do my jogging but my legs just would not go that fast. so instead, i put it on an incline of 5.5 and walked at 3.5 for 30 min. not a lot, but hey, i have found out thru sparkpeople that i dont have to kill myself to work out. all i have to do is move.

i feel so great today. i am off frid , sat and sund. no major plans and that makes me feel even better.

i had a really yummy smoothie after my workout,. i like to record them in blogs that way i dont forget how i made them. plus, if anyone wants to try them, they are here/

chocolate/banana/ peanut butter smoothie

1/2 scoop choc protein powder
1 tsp red fat peanut butter
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
1/2 frozen banana
little splenda
splash of milk

blend and enjoy

keep sparkin

    WOW!! That is awesome! I have tried the variety setting on the elliptical and it is a killer! I did the arc trainer (stairs/elliptical) this morning for 25 mins at a resistance of 6. Thought I'd die before I got off!! You are doing great!! Keep up the good work!

Sounds like a great workout and great smoothie.

I have not tried the variety setting on the elliptical, I will try it next time.

I am new at smoothies, usually just fruit, yogurt and milk. Hadn't thought of cottage cheese or vanilla.

Thanks for blogging this!
