Day Three

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

emoticon
Today, was a nice day, thou we were expecting Rain, and it came around 6 this evening. So all in all it was good day. My new plan has survived 3 days and I really feel real good.

Everything went well! Today

Followed my meal plan!

Calories were in range

Sodium was in range

Exercise was good!

Had fun with the fur babies, and presently crocheting some hats for my daughters, and grand kids hope to get it done before the first cold weather shows up.

Hope all have a fun and fantastic day tomorrow

Day One

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Ok, I decided to revap my eating, so since I do portion control. I bought the 21 day fix plan.

1. Was in my Calorie Range
2. Was in my Sodium Range ( emoticon , I am so amazed)
3. Got my 30 minutes of exercise done!
4. DH is on it too! ( want's to lose 20 pounds) Double emoticon
5. Did some Heavy Housecleaning!!


I can tell the difference in the Clean Eating. Once I get going, I know it will be Awesome when I get used to everything.

Hope all have a fabulous tomorrow!

    Yes, don't our bodies just LOVE clean eating....makes the weight come off, too! Your enthusiasm is contagious....so I'm about to get my act cleaned up some more. Timing is perfect, too with the Fall Challenge starting this upcoming weekend.

You've got some extra support with DH wanting to lose some weight, too! Double emoticon and emoticon

Thanks for your posts of encouragement on my spark page and blog. I sure appreciate it!

Starting again from day one

Thursday, August 28, 2014

emoticon I remember when first joining Spark people I was so accountable on making sure I did every thing on the page of getting spark points. I would start from the bottom and work my way up the list. That slowly went by the way side in the years to come. I still tracked, watched what I ate and watched my calories. I truly believe now is the time to get back in the habit of reading the list and accomplishing the list. So as of today I am setting a goal.

The goal is to make sure I do what I did at the beginning, like starting over from day one. I also think it will help me blog more. I truly know I need to do that. So Champions in the Kitchen (It happens to be one of my favorite teams) be ready to read all the cool, exciting things that happen in my life for the next 100 days.

Oh! for all out there in Spark People land, if you haven't ever joined the 5% Challenge Team yet, It would be an honor if you would stop by and have 8 weeks of fun with others on their journey to a healthier lifestyle. Here's the link:

They are signing up for the Fall 5% Challenge, Maybe I'll even see your name with the Team the Champions in the Kitchen.

    Change is always hard, but I know you are up to the task. Cheering you on from the sidelines! emoticon emoticon

And, thanks so much for the trophy on the Summer Challenge stats email message. I am grateful I was able to achieve what I did, and especially through so many food events, including my own birthday. Though I am backing off a bit during the Inbetween, I am fully committed to raising the bar again during our Fall Challenge. Timing couldn't be better, as the next Challenge stops right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Then, we enter the holiday danger zone until January 1....always a very challenging time for me.

I tell you though buddy, looking ahead at what is possible if I can be "my best", I sure thought by then, I'd be further along....GREAT patience is required along this journey. Bit by bit, small step by small step, every little positive change counts for something.

Let's not get discouraged. Let's emoticon

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

    I specifically love your line, well, when I went back and reread it it didn't say what I thought it did, but what I heard was like starting over every day. When I started doing this I had a deal where I basically started over every day and it worked really well for me. I may go back to that. Thanks for your post, it got me thinking.

It is so nice to have a doc that listens and laughs with you. emoticon He did change one of my meds, cuz he felt that the new medicine would even be a better one.

Well I need to eat something for lunch, and take the Yukky emoticon emoticon emoticon Pain Pill. So hope all my Spark friends are doing great************

    So sorry you are dealing with pain. My goodness, I would never have guessed with your positive attitude, enthusiasm, and cheerfulness. And, you are a regular exercising machine! You make no excuses. You are such an inspiration.

You are doing a GREAT job leading our team. I'm excited everyday to check in to see what you have planned for us, things we might think about, and for encouraging us to think like winners. emoticon for all that you do, each and every day. emoticon
