new goals and plans

Friday, February 15, 2013

Had a little down time the last 3 days but i am feelin better and ready to get back on track. I think i am just gonna concentrate on healthy food, eliminate sugar, etc. I feel like this is a good longterm goal.

I al ready to join the ymca again too. I have my at hone gym i working on but i lije going to y a couple days a week.

If i take my focus on the foods i cant have and concentrate on what i can have, then it will stick

Weight lifting and running. That is my plan.

    Quite a manageable and doable plan. Well thought out.

I like to get out for my exercise too because it is more motivational for me than at home. I also appreciate the connections I have made with others there.

Stay strong. emoticon

    Definitely focus on what you choose to have, not what you choose to avoid. I try to not say I "can't have" something. Makes me want it more! I tell myself I choose not to have ______ . When I was in hardcore losing mode and an urge for an unhealthy behavior would hit I would tell myself "I don't do that anymore." It is a process, and small steps are easier to maintain.

    Take it one step at a time. Making small changes that last is better than making huge changes that don't. Best of luck to you!

    Remember, some things are easier in baby steps. I think you can totally do this, though!

    The main thing is something you feel you can stick with..even if it is a process to get there..some people have to go cold turkey on things like sugar, others can wean off of it. Good Luck on your goals!

finally, on track for good

Sunday, January 13, 2013

got my treadmill put together today. i also lay some tiles on floor. i need to get 5 more packages of tile, my excercise bench. and a bigger mirror. some of other smaller items also. so excited about my new workout room

so far, i have stayed on track. only had 1/2 of a donut for sweets. the true test is tonigt it is like i sleep walk. i am almost asleep, i wake up and go get something fattening. it can even be a few slices of bread. but it is really derailing me. this has got to stop.

tmr fitness is gonna be c25k day 2, a spark people ball workout, and if i have time 30 day shred.

    An exercise room is wonderful.
Hey, have you tried saving some extra calories to eat before you go to bed? I used to be a night eater. I would wake up and feel like I couldn't get back to sleep without having something to eat. Then I would binge in the night. So then I started saving enough calories to have something really good before I went to bed. I find that high protein seems to stay with me and help me get to sleep and stay asleep. Or nuts also helps. One of my favorite things is to eat a protein bar, like a dark chocolate almond zone bar. That seems to be perfect. It soothes my sweet tooth, chocolate craving, and it is protein, and it has nuts..... and it fills me up enough to take away the craving food at night. Now after several months of doing this I am now experimenting with not eating at night. Some days I am doing good, some days, not, but I don't feel so desperate anymore.

a new day, a new opportunity

Friday, January 11, 2013

i am trying to wean myself off my ambien. slept without one last nite. of course, i had a xanax instead. but hey, i was taking both. i have had a lot of issues with different things since my sister died. but that is another blog.

today, i want to say that i joined planet fitness. i even excercised for 45 min. id 30 min on arc trainer and started my couch to 5k i will be putting my treadmill together this weekend. and i am going to start my weight training. i got an excercise ball for christmas. i am going to do that and jillian michael shred.

i have my meals planned out for today. i have to get my nighttime snacks in order. i go way way overboard at night. i have discovered that the more active i am with spark people, the better i do. there is never a lack of anything to do on this site. message boards, blogs, private spark teams, articles, and so much more.

well, time for work, my dinner tonite is tilapia parmesan, green beans and quinoa. i just cant wait to eat it.

my spark teams that i need to active in again

sweet tooth challenge

Awesome you joined PF. I'm also a member. The only problem I have with PF is: 1st Monday of the month is PIZZA day and 2nd Tuesday is BAGEL day. Grrrrr!

You need to try out the Arc Trainer. I call it the torture trainer. emoticon

    Ambien has been in the news the last couple of days on the radio. The topic is that they are going to recommend that women take
half the dosage since they metabolize it
more slowly. They are seeing a lot of
negative effects from women on Ambien.
I think you are smart to wean yourself off
of anything you can, and be patient as it
takes awhile to completely get out of the

Sunday, December 30, 2012

so it is time to post some fitness resolutions for the following year i am not gonna say that i will be at my goal weight-even tho it is only 30-40 lbs. i am gonna say that i have some fitness goals and a few other goals that i am gonna concentrate on

--do some form of excercise every day for at least 10 min.

--go through couch to 5k again and really concentrate on getting it done.

--go through 30 day shred

--pray and read bible every day

--go to church every sunday

--get sugar out of my system so i will fell better and my cholesterol will go down.

this is the year that i am gonna really concentrate on being healthy. i have no choice. i know how good it feels to eat right and excercise, i am just not consisent with it.

i think i am gonna even sign up for a wellness coach at the ymca again. even tho i have stiffed her several times in the past. this time i am ready to give it my all

    great blog great choices
Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
- William Arthur Ward
here to a healthy new year emoticon
