This body

Friday, September 07, 2012

I was snuggling with my baby boy tonight before bed, and he fell asleep curled up into me. My first thought was wow! this never happens anymore! lol But then I started thinking about how lucky I am to have two great kids, perfect little people that I adore completely. And I started thinking that it was my body that made them and held them for 9 months each-and it was my body that gave the nutrients to make these perfect little children that are smart and growing like weeds!

Got me to thinking...my body is a great thing. It's done so much and taken a beating or two from me when I wasn't really good to it (drinking too much during my partying days or all the sodas I've put into it over the years). I really do owe it to my body to get healthy. Really let my true self come out and see the world. No more taking advantage of "me." Time to finally feel comfortable in my own skin, and be the best mother possible to my children.



BLC goals

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Goals for the 12 weeks of BLC...hmm...since I've never done one of these before, I guess I'll start small? Here goes...

1. Walk or jog at least 6 days a week (trackable goal) When the weather starts getting bad, I'll have to join a gym to keep this up.

2. Weight loss goal is 10-15 pounds for this round (again, trackable)

3. Walk 3 flights of stairs without getting winded ( not sure if this is trackable...but I'll be able to tell the difference)

4. Eat 3-4 servings of freggies at least 5 days a week. (trackable)

I know other people have much better goals for this round, but this is what I'd feel good about accomplishing this round.

Not a great weekend?

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Okay, so I didn't work out all weekend. I walked Friday evening, but that was really about it. This is the first long weekend I've had all year, and I just wanted to be a bum. Brownie points lost on that part.

But I did do something that's been REALLY hard for me in the past- I ate freggies every day, 4 servings a day...and I'll tell ya a secret...I really liked it! I liked the way I felt about eating something super healthy for me instead of junk food all weekend. My boyfriend made this salad with crab meat, cucumbers, tomatoes, and lime juice all over it...it was amazing!

So maybe I didn't concentrate on what the BLC challenge wanted from me this weekend, but I focused on something else that really needed work, too. Chalk it up to one mistake, and time to go forward and do a few extra minutes today. emoticon

    Eating well is just as important as exercise. You still earned brownie points!

    You are doing fine - sometimes we all need that downtime. Awesome job getting those freggies in!

September's goals

Friday, August 31, 2012

My goals for September:

1. Start walking/jogging 6 days a week. I have a beautiful greenway walk right outside my door. I really need to start using it.

2. Start making myself a priority. I don't need to spend a lot of money or schedule spa days weekly (although it'd be nice!) but I can do little things. My daughter has tons of nail polish colors- I'm sure I can find one I like. emoticon

3. Turn in my nursing application. I think I'm ready for this next stage of my life. I've got all the pieces at hand...now to put it all together.

4. Start eating cleaner. Cut a lot if not all of the junk food out of my diet. McDonald's cheeseburgers are my go-to when I'm stressed. I need to find something healthier to do then rely on that!

5. Be more involved with my kids. They just started school, and they're going to need help adjusting to being back in school.
