Goals 4 HLC Spring Challenge

Saturday, February 09, 2013

1. What are your goals for this challenge? What do you want to accomplish (doesn't specifically have to be weight related) over these next 8 weeks?

What I would like to achieve over the next 8 weeks is making sure I do all my homework even when I am procrastinating, keep losing weight, work out more (more aerobics), and have fun with my spark friends.

2. How will you go about reaching those goals and work toward those accomplishments? What do you need to do to make them happen?

I am going to keep logging into Sparkpeople and I am going to stay active in this challenge. I am going to go to my classes and set time aside for me to work on school work and working out.

    I am the same with homework. My classes are online but I try my hardest to hand it in the day before it is due in case I get in one of my depressed moods. It's starting to help.

    Can't help with the homework, but I'll try to tailor the challenge for the goals of the whole team.

My hike at Seqouyah Bay Park 19 Jan 2013

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Since today was such a beautiful day. My kids and I decided to go to the lake. So we drove out to park and my daughter requested that we stop and see the animal before we hike so we did.


This is the Nature center they have there.





We had a staring contest. I think he won.





This was the inside critters and sites. Now we headed outside. Most of the animals we were not able to see since it is winter but we did get to see the birds. My favorite ones.



Then we were off to the part were my son could fish while my daughter and I went hiking.






One strange thing about me is that I love cemeteries. I have gone to most of the one's in this area but I never expected to find this on our hike.





I love trees. Even the baby ones.



We made it to the end of the trail but still had to walk to the car.

We made it to the picnic table and sat and watched the lake. It was a beautiful day. And when I made it home. My daughter was too tired to go walk some more with me.

From the Biggest Loser to Wal Mart.

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I see me more an more each day becoming stronger. At times I feel very frustrated but then I hear a kind word or my kids asking me things like, Is that a new dress (referring to a night shirt I have had for about a year or so). I remember a few years ago I so wished to go on the Biggest Loser. That I needed Julian to lose the weight. Now I see I don't. However I still like watching the show. This seasons show has hit me kinda hard. I have never realized how many people are morbidly obese and some of them are kids. This is scary to me. What type of life is it to be trapped inside a broken body? I did however do my walking today. I even switched it up by going to a local park that has a hill that you go up. It was definitely a challenge. Then went to wal mart and walk around for 40 minutes. My daughter and I decided we are gonna get exercise equipment to put in the front room. A treadmill, a cycle, a bench set, and a jogging trampoline. So if we want to watch television we have to work out. Which is fine with me. Kids go back to school tomorrow and I go Wednesday. I am so ready. Have a great week all.

    Great idea to get some equipment to put in your front room. I'm not sure what area you live in but check around on craigslist. I got a almost brand new 290 C Gold's Gym cycle for on $25 ($197 at our Wal-Mart).

    Love your new living room furniture. Wish I could convince my husband to give up the furniture in favor of exercise equipment. Maybe that would get him to be more active.

    Inspiring your daughter is wonderful! I watched the show tonight and worked out almost the entire time (I record and speed thru commercials), it was a wonderful feeling to be so accomplished. I know they worked harder, but I worked out with them in some small way.
