Goals 2013

Monday, September 30, 2013

Dont you hate writing a blog and it disappearing? Ech. This will be short and to the point since last one I wrote totally disappeared on me!

My goals for this challenge are:

1) Stick with my raw fruits and veggies. Ive been incorporating nuts and beans in my diet but focusing on raw fruits and veggies. The most Ive gone doing this is 3-4 weeks, but my goal is for 2 months. Hard at the moment because im doing through withdrawals and im pmsing. Im a carb addict, especially when its white rice and bread, so im just removing it from my diet. I feel better without it anyway, but its so easy to just grab and go.

2) Exercise more. I want to complete P90x and Insanity!

3) Focus on me. For once Id like to just focus on me and no one else. If I cant take care of myself, then no one can. Its about time Im a little selfish!

    Taking care of yourself is not selfish - you can't really take care of anyone else if you are in need of care yourself.

    It's amazing that you have the dedication to cut out something you rely(ied) on as a "staple" food for even that long! I'm hoping to get my sweet tooth under control myself, so I might try this approach: cut it out completely for "X" amount of time.

Good luck with your goals & the rest of the fitness challenge!

    I admire your willpower, I don't think I'd be able to last a week only eating raw fruits and veggies!
I think you have some great goals. I am currently doing P90X. It is intense, but it feels so good to get it done! To me, it's a little bit addicting. I started it and am not willing to give it up!
Good luck to you!

  You are braver than I! I would have such a hard time taking all carbs out of my diet. We have made the switch to only whole grain rice and bread. I would love to be able to do what you are doing. That is awesome!!! Good luck with your goals. I am sure you will have great success!! :)

Good on you for focusing hard on nutrition in addition to exercise! If it's worth anything, I've noticed that people who do both in equal measure seem to meet with the most success. I, too, am a HUGE carb addict and can very much relate to your cravings! But you can do this - I'm sure you'll meet your goals soon!

Down another 2.2 pounds!

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

I weighed today and lost another 2.2 pounds, good news especially since its going to be my time of the month in a few days. Hopefully after I will have lost more. I have lost a total of 11 pounds in 3 weeks, pretty good, huh?

My dietician is a little flaky. The last 3 times (which Ive only seen her 4 times, and the first day i had to call her because she wasnt in her office) she was either late or reshceduled. I just hate when im working hard, and paying money and people are so unprofessional. I paid for 5 sessions, so what Im going to do is go to my friends dietician after next weeks. Shes even cheaper!

I know 11 pounds is great, but I still think of all the weight I need to get off. I just wish it showed much more than it does, and I was half way through the journey... Arent I an impatient one! LOL

I completed the 21 day meditation challenege as well which im really porud of and im continuing to meditate even if its simply for a few minutes. So far, im doing great, hopefully I continue this way!

Goals for Spring Challenge

Friday, March 29, 2013

So part of the Spring Challenge is to write down my goals and print them, so here I go. I want to lose weight. I know thats really general, but as Im trying to do this for the long haul, I dont want to discourage myself. What I would really love is to be under 200, but thats impossible.. not in 8 weeks I doubt so for now, I want to lose. I would say probably I would love to get down to 210, if I thats the case I would need to lose around 15 more pounds in 6 weeks.

Another goal of mine is to drink like a fish. Ive been drinking a ton of water these last few weeks, so Im hoping I continue. I give myself a diet coke a day so far, but Im going to start eliminating that as well from my diet.

To really exercise. My dietician says to exercise 4-5 days a week, so what im thinking of doing is doing that and just going for a walk the last 2-3 days.

I want to be able to look at myself and be proud of what ive accomplished. So far. Its hard for me, because I just remember where I was and how Ive gained it all, but one day at a time, and ill be back there, i just need to keep focused!

6.6 down!

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I never did write and tell you guys how much I lost the first week with the dietician. I was suprised but I lost 6.6 pounds! Yay me! Of course, thats the first week, with a ton of water weight and so on, but Ive been trying to be really good this week and have been incorporating working out as well. Tomorrow is week 2 of my weight in with her and Im a little nervous. i want to be losing a ton, but I know that losign slowly is better.

Ive been doing P90X lately, mostly the Kenpo X video and it kicks butt! I also went to Petra (thats where one of the Indian Jones movies was filmed), in Jordan and walked and hiked a ton. I came back dusty, dirty and sore, it felt incredible! Of course right when I came out there was a huge sand storm, so my friends and i were lucky enough to get out in time. Obama went down there the next day too, so its sortta cool!

so thats my update for today. Please keep me in your thoughts tomorrow for my weigh in, i really am so nervous!

Moving along

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I am proud to say that I was in a depressed state but pushed myself out of it. I think my meditating is really helping. Im on day 6 of the 21 day meditation challenge and so far im doing great. i missed one day, but made it up the next day by doing 2 and catching up. I am aiming to complete the entire 21 days... Fingers crossed!

Tomorrow is my official weigh in with the dietician, Ive done good so far.. Messed up a bit but nothing at all tragic, and Ive stuck with it. Yay me! I really hope it shows on the scale! Hopefully this next coming week I will start to incoorporate exercise and maybe, hopefully, get back into running somewhat.

I completed my art piece, which i must say is stunning, though, I may have mentioned that in my other blog post, i just dont remember. Im working on some ideas for another piece, hopefully it will be as nice!

I have decided today will be a good day. I will try my best to be positive, and happy! Wish me luck!
