so far so good.....

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

as i sit here i'm thinking that this week is off to an awesome beginning. of course now it is into the middle of the week. i'm still on plan, my exercise is great, and calories in the range. i'm really looking forward to friday and weigh in day.

all we have to do is take this one step at a time and the rest will start to fall into place. i have to look back over my life and my old lifestyle to see that i was really just lazy. not a good word for someone with ocd but there it is. i wouldn't eat right because it took work. exercise, no way that meant sweat. but now look out guys. if i don't sweat i feel like i didn't do something right. i eat according to spark plan and love it. i love that i can change foods that don't agree with me and that i still stay on track. makes making choices outside of the norm even easier.

i have to say to all if this is a new start, restart, or a continuation of the lifestyle stay strong and never give in or up. it will all come together and you may even learn something new about yourself along the way. god bless.

weigh-in: not a bad week all in all

Friday, August 28, 2009

emoticonwow, i'm down 2.2 lbs this week. after coming off vacation and gaining last week i had a bit of a battle to undertake. but i took it head on and came out the winner. now for next week. i want to thank my challenge partners that i signed up with to lose 4 lbs in a month. they keep me accountable to myself and to them. i really was letting myself slide and now that i have set a new goal i seem to be back in the saddle again. so guys i'm ready for september. i say bring it on. i know i can lose 4 lbs and if i work truly hard who knows i may lost more. have a blessed day all and keep putting one foot in front of the other. we are getting there from here. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It's a great feeling when you meet one of your goals. When you do it's time to set another, just as you have done. emoticon -- Lou

thursday: this is my week to shine.

Thursday, August 27, 2009

emoticontoday i realized that i have been almost a whole week and i haven't strayed to far off the beaten path. i'm going to do this. it may not be this week or even next month but i'm going to hit my goal and when i do .....watch out world. just checking in before i head off to bed. i have to work in the morning and i'm trying to keep my sleep on schedule also. so many new things and so little time. really though i 'm finding out i like a lot of the new and improved things i'm doing. the execise has turned into a daily challenge. meaning i challenge myself to run farther than i did the day before. even one step is a step in the right direction. my food intake is getting creative and this week alone i have made two spark recipes.....apple cinnamon muffins are wonderful. and the cornbread is awesome. really i have enjoyed trying new things and i'm ready to continue on. so keep putting one foot in front of the other and we both will meet at the finish line. emoticon

  


Tuesday and still on track!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

emoticonHere i sit, finised with dinner, feeling smug with myself. Ive been going strong now for a few days and i have not felt better about myself in a while. Man it is amazing how we can get so wrapped up in what is going on around us that we can't even take care of us.

work has been awful. I work in a pharmacy and with the flu it has been tough. Tempers are flying and not with just the patients but with the workers. People who where your friend yesterday no longer even want to say hello, let alone look at you or please help out. I went on vacation and have come home to the twilight zone. Today was much better than yesterday but still not good. For me that is added stress in my life i just don't have time or patience for. So i have prayed hard and i'm hoping tomorrow is a much better day.

My spark plan is on track. I was in this with a friend but she is slowly going by the way side and i'm left to my own devices. So far i've held my own. I'm up with my weight, just a bit but enough for me to step back, get a grip and start fresh. I really have come to far to let this slide. I have joined a challenge to lose 4 pounds a month and so far it is keeping my accountable to myself and the others on the same challenge. Thank you spark for having that available to me and all of us.

I'm going to close now as i have rambled on long enough. really i'm just tired and i'm going to read for a bit and get to sleep. trying to keep myself on a schedule for sleep and last night i couldn't stay asleep. i know it was from stress, but i have to not let that get in my way. i'm going to get there from here. I just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. emoticon

    Hang in there!! These stressful times always pass. It is so much nicer when we come out on the other side without eating our way through it, possibly even pounds lighter!! Woo hoo!!

I'm glad the 4 pound challenge is a blessing for you. It is for me also.

    Bravo! Bravo!! Doesn't taking control feel wonderful?!! It's so empowering to realize that we get to CHOOSE to eat well and to take steps toward becoming more fit. There's no hidden monster within that is stronger than we are. As one of my three year old friend seems to tell everyone but Mama: YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME! *add a foot stomp here* lol Sometimes I feel like that when I look at the old habits that want to rise up within me. I want to stare them in the face, stomp my foot, and yell: You are NOT the boss of me!! I pray your friend finds her way back, but let me assure you, you are NOT left to your own devices. We are here, right beside you, shoulder to shoulder, marching in the same direction, for the same reasons, with the same goals. I pray that God will give you such grace at work that He will insulate you from the negativity around you, that He will whisper such tender words of love to you that you cannot help but have joy within your being, flooding you with peace and contentment, even in the midst of the turmoil of tempers and unkindness. Keep lookin at Jesus, girlfriend. He's just SO beautiful to behold!!
