new week, new beginning

Monday, March 02, 2009

i have beaten myself up over having eaten off the beaten path yesterday for the last time. today i'm commiting to weighing my food, and getting my water and just getting back on track. i kicked myself all evening and you know what? it didn't change a thing, i'm still here and the combos are still in me so i just have to move on. i will get in my workouts today and no more punishing myself. that is my goal for this day. i can't say about tomorrow as i take this one minute, one day, and one week at a time. so till tomorrow keep sparking folks

  


snowing in alabama!!!

Sunday, March 01, 2009

my dear hubby woke me up at 5:30 this wonderful sunday morning for me to see the snow falling in greenville alabama. may not seem like much to some but to us rednecks in the south this is a wonderful site. man how pretty. i will post a pic on my site as soon as the sun comes up as this won't last very long. never does in the south. only have seen it snow one other time since we moved here about 13 years ago. i'm from vermont and i must say in reality i don't miss all that cold and snow and short seasons, except for winter that is, i do love the warmth. oh well on to my day. today is a new day and i need to work on somethings. so till next time keep sparking

happy saturday

Saturday, February 28, 2009

i made it through friday with little or no trouble. now saturday...i have to work this morning so that is always helpful. i tend to not get bored (my trouble for over eating) and keep to my schedule. i've already got in some cardio and am off to a wonderful start. had a good breakfast, and packed a good lunch. the rest is up to me. as i gained last week i have to get back on the wagon. since i know this is one minute, day, and week at a time i'm ready for any challenges that may or may not come up (yeah right). so till next time keep sparking

  


accountability day.....mine

Friday, February 27, 2009

well it finally happened the dreaded gain....1.8lbs to be exact. that puts me back at 7.8lb loss. nothing to sneeze at but still not what i wanted to see. of course this moment had to come. i went on vacation and looking back i know i didn't get my water in, exercise? yes i walked but not like at home, and i only did yoga one day. so i'm my own worse enemy. not one person forced me not to drink my water, or not to get in my exercise, or forced me to eat that pizza. i did all this on my own. so as i have seen on this message board on more than one occasion, i'm going to get up dust off my a** and get moving forward to next week. this is just a ripple in my calm lake and sometimes you will have that. so till next time keep sparking. i will be.

last chance day again....

Thursday, February 26, 2009

time it goes so fast...just another manic thursday...when this day comes i get so worried. for what??? it is really just another day on the books but with my weigh in day tomorrow it makes it a really crazy day. i like to think of this as last chance day for if i want to make any mends i better get it done today. of course that is not to say i can fix whatever it was i did wrong the whole week. those days i'm held accountable by me. i have to live with me, no one else does. if i don't do what is expected of me by me, i pay the price. i have no one to blame but me. since i feel i did fine, then that is all the matters, the scale is not my captor, just my tool to use freely. heck i know my pants are loose, my muscles are getting tighter and i have some definition in my stomach, arms, and glutes. i would say the last two months have been the greatest, hard work, sometimes lonely(not everyone is on this wagon), but all in all wonderful. i have learned so much about myself and what actually makes me happy and what makes me unhappy. so i guess i will say goodbye till next time and in the meantime keep sparking
