And now for something completely different....

Friday, May 13, 2011

Tomorrow is the Take Steps walk for Crohns-Colitis in Sacramento, CA. Last year, Kady was the honored hero. I remember walking around the state capitol and thinking "This must be like 3 or 4 miles!" It was all I could do to make it but it was progress because the year before, I sat it out. When I got home, I tracked it. It was barely over a mile! lol.... That was 2 months into my spark journey. This year? That is gonna be a cake walk! (did I say cake??? I certainly hope so!!).

Kady has raised nearly $4000.00 for the CCFA and when we walk tomorrow, in my heart, besides Kady,I am going to be carrying HISBLONDIE's boy, and I am going to be carring Cheryl (ATREATFORME) and I am going to be walking and praying for a cure for this terrible disease. I am also going to be thinking about my progress in this last year and how far I have come but more importantly, how far Kady has come.

KRAWRS asked me today how Kady is doing and she is doing great. Amazing, even. SHe has so much energy and just a fabulous zest for life. It looks like she will probably have to have an adjustment surgery this summer but we can deal with that.

One of the things I want to pass on is this: When you think something is the worst thing that can happen, sometimes it's not. Sometimes it is just something you have to go through to have the best life you can.

Tomorrow is going to be a great day and I am excited for my small part in finding a cure and raising awareness . I will post pictures! Have a great Saturday. I dare you.

    Oh my Friend. I am so touched! And I am so happy to learn how well Kady is doing. I completely agree with you that sometimes going through something is just what you must do to have the best life you can. I am going to do a better job remembering that.

Your blog is amazingly inspirational in a lot of ways... and the fundraising is such a meaningful thing to do. I am very glad I read this today, thank your for writing it.

Dance

Thursday, May 12, 2011

3 steps forward, 2 steps back, one step sideways, up, down, start again.

NO, it isn't square dancing. It is this dance called "weight loss". As I bragged on Monday, (first mistake apparantly), I was down 3 pounds. Today (my normal weigh in day) I am up 2. (Note to self: Bragging is unattractive and will bite you in the A$$).

I have been eating within range, drinking all the water, watching the sodium, excercising on schedule, doing my boot camp workouts (went from 4 days a week last week to 7 days this week with 2 extra video's. They are short 6-15 minute videos).

Now my point in telling you this is not for me to whine (cause you know how I feel about THAT!) but just to let you know that sometimes it happens like that. There is nothing absolute in weight loss or we would have all had a handle on it a long time ago). This is today. It is not forever, it is not tomorrow, it will not change my plan, my program or my resolve.

I am not done. I am not even CLOSE to being done. I will just go on with my day, like I always do, and be excited when the scale moves down next week.

I will keep doing the dance, maybe learn some new moves, but I am not sitting it out, I am not discouraged even though I may not like this particular song.

Can we get some Creedence up in here?????

I am trying to weigh in only once a week, but that is so hard!

Tough Talk

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Listen up:

We ALL have had hard times. We will again.
We ALL ache, want and need. Sometimes, we dont get what we desire. Sometimes it is good to not get those things.
It is hard for EVERYONE, not just you.
We ALL have excuses, reasons, cop-outs, and interuptions.
We ALL would like to not think about what we eat and lay on the couch. It is easy and it got us where we were when we joined SPARKPEOPLE. It ain't pretty, people.
So what makes you so damn special????

You got up today and made a choice.
You ate a decent breakfast.
You tracked it.
You did your 10 minute video, you went for a walk, a run, a bike ride.
You hit the gym.
You planned dinner for yourself, something that would fit into your range.
You made a fruit salad or had a yogurt for a snack instead of your kids leftover pancakes.
You commented on someone's blog who was having a worse day than you.
You checked out a new recipe and you are actually going to make it.
You weighed yourself, even though you ate "bad things" this weekend. Because you told yourself you would. You put it on your ticker even though it KILLED you to do it.
You fessed up.
You forgave that person.
You forgave your self.
You put those shorts on. They fit.
You are here.
You are trying.
You are doing.
You are succeeding.
This time is different.
You are going to take today and OWN it and by that I mean, when you go to bed tonight, you are going to be proud. You will tell yourself what you wish someone else would say. And it is going to be enough.

And then tomorrow? Tomorrow, you are going to do it again.

Not just anyone can do what we do. It takes a special person. It takes you. It takes me. It takes every minute, every meal, every snack, every day. It ain't easy but it's beautiful.

My weight loss weekend

Monday, May 09, 2011

Thank you, first of all, to those who noticed and commented that yes, I indeed lost 3 lbs since last Thursday! I am so STOKED! I havent lost that much weight in one week since the begnning! How did you do it, you ask? Here ya go.

1. I started the 28 day bikini challenge (think that is what its called, its on my sparkpage and you can start it at anytime). It is 10 minute videos plus cardio for 30 minutes 5 days a week. Uh yeah. super easy. But it is a jump start and I really needed it!!!

2. I have a weekly bet with my new friend (anewtatiana) and it is keeping me motivated. We bet each week to lose 2 pounds. EPIC FAIL on week 1, massive WIN in week 2!

3. I am dead serious about losing the rest of this weight. I mean it.

4. Went to the races Friday night where Nachos and hot dogs were calling my name (not just calling, they were screaming!!). What did I do? I ate my turkey sandwhich and my baked chips and then ate 5 nachos from my friend. 5 nacho's, Not ALL. Then I walked around the track, probably a good mile. (yea me).

5, We went to my in-laws on Friday night, got up and ate my Luna Bar and went to garage sale with my SIL and got adorable chair for vanity for my daughter, Kelly.
Visited with my FIL who is battling cancer. He has surgery today.

6. When everyone started making noises about lunch, we left for Reno where Kady was working and drove through Taco Bell where I got 2 Fresco tacos and drank my water.

7. Went to the River Festival where Kady was and walked around (over a few miles) and walked past (PAST) every fish and chips, corn dog, ice cream and other delicious food vendor and then went to hotel.

8. Had some quality love time with Frank.

9. Went to a fabulous buffet and began with a huge salad and a glass of wine (which lead to 6 or 7 through the course of the evening). I ate modestly, kind of calculating as I went but I still got a small brownie and a lemon mousse... It was delicious.

10. Watched the Pacquio/Mosely fight with a whole bunch of people in the Hotel/Casino and met Kady's bosses and co-workers. (She had so much fun cause she got to gamble and have a few drinks, first time ever in a casino!). She looked adorable and got soooo much attention and it was awesome to see her having fun and looking so healthy!

11. Then we went dancing and had a total blast. I think Kady and I danced about every song for over an hour or more (I switched to water!) and just had a generally great time.

12.Went to bed about midnight, slept well, got up and had a great brunch (scramble eggs with spinach, mushrooms, ground beef etc) , walked around a HUGE sporting store and then ate a luna bar for lunch on the drive home.

12. When I got home, there awaited me an Edible Arrangement of fruit with chocolate sauce for Mother's day from Kady and her boyfriend, Artie. I had fruit with yogurt for dinner.

13. I drank all my water every day.

To summarize, I stayed hydrated, ate well, was mindful of my calories and was active. I got to enjoy some treats and a few glasses of wine and I had a fantastic weekend. It was the perfect storm for happiness and weight loss.

I am posting a link to my facebook so you can see some of the highlights...Thanks for all your support and love people!!

    So the moral of the story is... If I want to lose weight, I need to party with you? (Good job!)

    I am so proud of you! I wish I could say I ate as well this weekend. I lost 2.5 lbs last week, I think from the bootcamp and eating really well. This weekend we had a birthday party and ate out and ate out. UGH So, I am working hard this week and hopefully will not have a gain.
