I've had an awesome couple of days. Seems if I put my mind to something I can do it. Who would of known. lol.
I have stayed on plan and on exercise, actually over exercise, for the last two days. Today is day three and im confident I can hang on. Really weighing, measuring, counting, writing, exercise isn'[t that tough. More really should try it.
I'm going to succeed. I have no doubt. I hope sooner rather than later but I'll take what life throws at me. I'm off now to get in my exercise of the day and a good walk/run before getting ready for work. have a great day all my spark buddies.

Ok, vacation is coming august 21. we are flying to vermont to see family and friends we haven't seen in like 8 years. I would love to reach my goal by then. I know I may be close and not at goal and that would be ok also, but I have never put a time stamp on my time to lose and now is the time.
I have nine weeks before we leave. that is 1.7 pounds a week. I know I can't lose that much at one time because i'm near goal and my body just doesn't work like that, but I can do my darndest to get close.
So i'm putting this challenge to myself outthere. I want to be near my goal by aug. 21st. this is week one and I did great the first day. I will take this one day at a time and with my daily challenge in play and my diet on track this should be an attainable goal.
So i'm off to get in my morning cardio. I want to wish all a great day. I want to wish me luck.

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.
