Ok the results are in i'm down the 1.8 pounds I gained last week. now i'm not upset over that, I just kinda was hoping I would lose at lest a drop of new weight. But that is ok, i'm back at ground zero and i'm ready to try out a couple of new ideas for this week.
My ww team is keeping me geared up and that has been a big help in this journey. So i'm going to make myself proud this week by doing what I need to do to get there from here.
I got my housework done yesterday but I have to confess I didn't get any and I mean any extra exercise in for the day. I was hoping to do about 60 minutes of cardio but it rained and with that came my mood, laziness. So I vegged most of the day.
today is the start of a new week though. So i'm off to get it done. I have no excuses today it isn't raining and i'm done with the housework. today is all about me.

Yesterday I started a new challenge for myself. I said I would set a daily goal and then challenge myself to get it done. Well yesterday's was to get in 60 minutes of cardio. Well not only did I get that done, I went over and burned 382 calories according to spark for the day.
Today I have decided that since I have a weigh in in the morning i'm going to again get in 60 min. of cardio. My strength is done for the week so I think today will be my day to shake it up a bit for tomorrow. I have so much to do around the house that In addition to my exercise I will be getting extra without the totals. I'm not going to count that. I'll call it a freebee, lol.
I intend to have a much better weigh in this week then last. That gain has made me just want to get up and start moving. I'm heading to this finish line and when I see others hitting it in six months and i'm still here after a year. Well you get the picture. We can't be good all the time....lol.
But enough is enough. i've come this far on my own, meaning no pills, or magic wand. believe me without spark and ww I would of never gotten this far. I have made so many great friends and the idea and laughter you guys give me....lol....junebug and pam, thank you for carring me each morning, cathy, thankyou for pushing me along, topazdiva, we are going to get there at the finish line, I will wait for you and you can wait on me. Sandra, we are going to come out of our troubles ahead of the game. You guys have all been great and I say . lou you always have a kind word and a blessing. this list could go on and on but I haven't that much time. But you see, it takes a lot of sparkers to help reach a goal.
So guys, I hope tomorrow I have a great post for you. I want to make myself proud most of all but it is nice to see a smile on a friends face also. God bless you all. michelle.

I'm going to try writing and completing a daily goal. whether it be exercise, water, sleep, extra veggies, etc, each day i'm going to challenge myself just a bit more. What is one day, one item, one minute more of exercise. really in the scheme of things nothing, but in the long run it could mean and extra pound, and extra helping of good food and extra muscle burn.
today is my first day, i've set 60 min. of cardio as my daily goal. most days i'm good with 45 min. but I decided I need to up that just a bit. So today is 60. I will let you know if I complete this or not. I have also set up my goal tracker to include this daily goal seven times a week. not the exercise persay but the daily goal.
If we fail to challenge ourselves we will fail. boredom is a big factor for me. so I'm always trying to come up with new things for myself. I know I could use sp challenge central but really i sleep well, I eat well and I do get in exercise. I just need to up it a bit.
I'm going to run across my finish line someday.

I guess when I say restart I mean jump back in with both feet. I seem to be sliding this week. Oh i'm exercising and eating right, but i'm not getting the exercise I was, i'm not eating like I was. I've used a bunch of free points and it is only wednesday. So I had to sit back and decide what it is the I really want.
Well the choice was easy enough, I want heath and to reach my goals. I want that magic number that is going to make all my wishes come true. Ok, maybe not all that but I do want that magic number for the first time in my life. So armed with a new plan of attack i'm ready to fight. I'm ready to fight the cravings, the laziness that seems to be following me this week and the lack of sleeping through the night. I'm going to take this bull by the horns and rev it up. I'm stepping up to bat and i'm going to see a loss this week.
I think that has a lot to do with this feeling i'm having. Last week showed a gain and I did everything right, so to my way of thinking "why bother?" Well I need to bother. Last week was a fluke, but this week will be my fault if I keep on with the way i'm going. So I"m off to get in my morning exercise and then a good breakfast. I have to work late tonight so evening walking is not in the cards but a lunch walk is. And it needs to be more than 15 min. as it has been lately. No more excuses...it's too hot, i'm tired, i'm hungry, i'm bored. Enough with the reasons NOT to do something and I will come up with reasons why I should. Like health, energy, more rest, freedom from fat. That kind of good thinking.
So It may take me a bit but i'm going to succeed. There have been setbacks, steps forward and such on my journey but I always come back fighting. I'm fighting for my life here. Since my cancer scare and that next test coming in october I have to be strong in mind and body. I want a good result next time. So friends i'm off to reach my goals i've set for myself. What goals are you setting for yourself? without a goal we have nothing to strive for.

What? Huh? That number can't be for me. I'm up 1.8 this week according to the scales. I did all I was suppose to, exercised like crazy, ate according to my ww plan, drank my water......so how can this be? This is a bad joke right?
Nope, that is what those darn scales told me this week. Did I get upset? nope, I did get off and get back on to be sure though. lol. But I took it like a man, no pun intended, and walked away. went to spark and recorded it. I have been losing for the last four or five weeks, i'm near goal, I knew this was going to happen at some point. My body is rebelling. It is saying "oh yeah, i'll show you who is in charge here" and it is. Our bodies can withhold weight loss for many reasons, water, stress, emotions, same ole same ole, all kinds of reasons. So for me this was my wake up call. I was doing the same ole same ole, and not only that I was eating things with salt like crazy.
So this week is a new week, i'm making a new plan. I even had a lunch out yesterday and then had veggies for dinner. I allowed myself the moment and then I gave my body what it really needed, health. My mind got what it wanted and my body got what it needed. Did I go over my ww points for the day? nope, I planned and I did good. Even got in a swim yesterday evening instead of a walk. This week i'm going to try changing up a few things and see what is what.
Get upset? nope, i've come to far and this is just a bump in the road. This is a journey of health and learning. I'm learning each day what works for my body and what doesnt. So ok, what I did last week didn't work. So time to step it up a bit and change some things. No problem there.
I am a winner. Today i'm going to show myself and my body that i'm a winner also. have a great day all. I will succeed.
