Day 5/100

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

This is so very true. we have to move forward and remember the good and do our best to fix the bad. This is my chance to finally see this through. I've watched many reach their goals and me just barely moving along. I want to be the one to reach a goal. Just one. Can be something small. So I joined the SparkCoach to see how that was. So far it is ok. I will let you know more as I proceed.

So emoticonI'm off to prepare for day six.
Michelle.

    I Think the trick is to set little milestone goals along the way.
Just looking toward final destination may cause you to miss seeing all the important achievements along the way

    Good for you! I'm sure that sparkcoach will help with motivation too. Sometimes just trying something new can re-spark our efforts. emoticon emoticon

    I know you can lose one pound. Aim for that then one more and one more. Small repeated successes reinforce motivation and determination. emoticon -- Lou

Day 4/100 Yes

Monday, August 27, 2012



Another great day. I just added the foods for today into my tracker and even with having more fries with my dinner than I should of i'm still at the low end of my calories for the day. emoticon So many times i've slipped and fallen about this point. But not this time. I'm ready to see this through.

I have also finally gotten my exercise back in motion. So now to just continue and make this a habit once again. I know this isn't going to be over night success and I have a ways to go to get back to where I was but one step at a time is really all anyone can take at any given time. So i'm ready to take it slow like emoticon Because at the end of this I want to not only be at goal but I want to be accountable to myself and continue on for the rest of my life. this is not a once in a lifetime journey this is THE journey.

Michelle.

    Love the picture with your blog!
congratulations on a well done day four! Woohoo!!! You are doing great!
Give a shout for help if you start to feel like you are slipping. You are right though, all too often we go into this thinking that this journey has an end..that there is a wall we slam into when we reach "goal" that says THE END! That just isn't so. Being healthy is something we will strive to be each and every day for the rest of our lives. Being healthy means we eat nutritious foods to fuel our bodies and exercise AND sometimes allow ourselves that dessert or those chips, or whatever, because we have learned to incorporate those things into a TOTAL lifestyle. There is no end, there is no wall, there is no stopping point. Living healthy lasts forever, not just when we reach some number on a scale or a dress size, it's something we do for life. It's something we can learn to enjoy because we love how it makes us feel. And okay, that magic number on the scale or a really great dress doesn't hurt things either!

Day 3/100 Holding my own

Sunday, August 26, 2012

"No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." -Anonymous

I think i'm going to do just that. I have had three good days ( I won't say great) I have followed through with my goals but I have slacked on the fruits and veggies. I can't say why...Just haven't eaten much this weekend and really didn't realize I was running short until late. Oh well there is always tomorrow.

I can't start at the beginning but by george I can finish this the way i'm suppose to...at goal. So as I end this tonight i'm ready to reach for my goals again tomorrow. There is no rule that says we can't try our darndest each and everyday. Heck we may trip but we pick back up and we will finish this.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

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.
