Day 2/100 So far so good

Saturday, August 25, 2012



The day ended wonderfully. I had a great motivated first day. I saw this pic on facebook and had to share. This is what I so often forget...we are all beautiful no matter our size. I need to stop comparing myself to others and just be the best I can be.

Today I had to reset my tracker yet again. I mean it would be one thing to set it lower but to always have to reset at a higher weight is really getting to be a drag. So what do I plan on doing about it you may ask? I plan on doing my body good and no more of this being in denial. It is no longer a river in egypt it is right here at my house on the scales.



So as I leave this blog to begin my second day I have to believe that I will see changes and in the way I want. No more playing at this. It is time to step it up and finally see the changes that I know I can make because I have done them before.

Onwards and downwards is my new motto.
Michelle.

Day 1/100 Its Time

Friday, August 24, 2012



Ok, so vacation is over and i've been told that holding myself accountable with a blog is helpful. Well i'm up for most anything and now is the time to start fresh. So today is day one and lets see where i'm at when day 100 comes into play. I can't guarantee that I will still be any closer to goal than I am right now but i'm willing to give this a go. Actually i'm more than willing. I've told all that will listen that today is day one and i'm back at it. So now that they are on track with this so am I.

So let the games begin....wait I mean the healthy living. Kristi it is you and me girl lets get this done.

Michelle.

    There is a team "The Hundred Day Challenge".
Maybe it would be helpful to get active there.

Nope sorry nothin

Reason to BELIEVE #225: Because you CAN lose the weight. "The greatest pleasure in life, is doing the things people say we cannot do" Walter Bagehot

I wasn't going to post a blog today. Why? Not sure really. Seems like my days just run together lately. Though i'm finally seeing a bit of a loss here and there and i'm starting to get back to my exercise routine. That for me is a big plus. But as for having much to talk about....Nope...same ole same ole.

I would love to share something really awesome like some of the blogs I read but nope got nothin. So i'm just going to share the funny with you and move on. Know that today i'm still working hard at reaching all my goals. I'm not giving up and I won't give up on spark.

Michelle.

    I love the funny! :)
Glad to hear you are getting back to the exercise. That is what I need to do. Maybe with school starting back and things settling into routine again I'll get back to a schedule for myself. (not that summer is a good excuse to not exercise!! -- but I sure haven't done much of it!!)
You are doing great..just keep on pushing!!

    I feel that way too at times, but I made a commitment to keep an accountability blog, and start it out with a positive thought or quote. It helps. I'm really glad you're seeing progress, that means you don't give up! Let's do the best we can, each day! emoticon

Do blog, even if you've got nothing. Always great to hear how you're doing, and from the sound of it, it's moving in the right direction.
Here's to nothin'

Facing facts....

Saturday, July 28, 2012



This is how i've been feeling this summer. Time to face facts....maybe i'm not doing all I could be for me. But each day I start off on the right track and lately i've been walking at my break at work, parking at the far end of the lot, and drinking more water. So changes will be coming soon I hope.

Michelle.

    All small steps are still leading in the right direction. Personally I think smaller steps help us to not get lost in the big picture! You're doing great, just keep going!!!

    Michelle, just remember ''Rome was not built in a day" nor will be get to goal in a day. I know you already know this, but I also know how impatient I can get, and you and I are so much alike in our thinking. You can do this, one day, one step, one meal, one second at a time.

Love you,
Joan

Baby steps....one at a time

Friday, July 27, 2012

We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down."
Eleanor Roosevelt

A friend shared this quote and it seemed to work. So i'm sharing with all of you. We have choices and most of the time it comes down to baby steps and sometimes they are very small and very wobbly but we choose to take them. This is a learning process and no matter the day or the moment your learning each and every time you choose a better alternative than the one before.

I'm still taking my journey one day and one meal at a time. I have no other way at this time. I wish I could find the magic pill but alas it doesn't exist. You can't bottle hard work and determination and that is what this journey takes. Yup there is days I want to just throw in the towel and say "you win" to the universe but that isn't me. I won't quit. I know my answer is out there I just have to keep taking those baby steps and it will come. One little day at a time.

Michelle.
