running? Maybe...

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Last weekend I went out to dinner with my dear friend, Joan. She started jogging and doing mud dog races a couple of years ago....I have never been a runner..I love to walk and I walk fast, but running just hasn't been my thing. Anyway...she asked me to do a mud dog race with her next year. When I came home and told my DH, he suggested that I take a look at the 5K training programs on SP. He gave me a great idea...train for this and surprise her by telling her I will do the race with her! My problem is that it is November and I don't like to walk in the cold, but I do indoor walking, and walking with exercise videos so....why can't I start training by doing the walk/jog training right here in my house?! So...I started today. I still need to shed about 5 more pounds to reach my goal so this may be just the jumpstart I need!

I will keep you posted!

keeping the old intro information

Thursday, May 29, 2014

In October of 2004, I was at my heaviest weight ever 210-215 pounds. Not sure which, cause at that point I was afraid to get on the scale. I had been traveling for work all the time, not working in one place. In October of 04 I started working in one restaurant close to home. In January or February, I went to the Dr for a checkup and I was down to 200 pounds. I couldn't believe it, I had lost 10 or 15 pounds without even trying! Being on my feet all day, and not sitting in the car eating all the time was the secret!
In July of 2005 I had a car accident, wasn't hurt, but it led to me having some medical tests done. I had one minor operation in August and in November 2004 I had open heart surgery. Now I have made lifestyle changes cause I had to. I eat low fat, low calorie, low cholesterol and I exercise regularly. I went through cardiac rehab, which got me back into the habit of working out, but Sparkpeople along with the support of my wonderful husband, is what has really kept me on track. I am not on a diet, I have changed my way of life. My husband is with me on this journey, which really helps and makes it easier. His support is so important to me.

01/21/07 The past couple months I haven't lost any weight. Gained a couple pounds back, but now I am on the right track again and back down to 163. Still wearing my size 12's!! I have reshaped my body, but I still have a way to go!!!

Well, here I am again! I have gained back almost all the weight that I lost and I am totally annoyed with myself. I don't know why I can't keep it off. I read the articles and I know what I need to do, I just don't do it. My niece is getting married in June and I am her Matron of Honor. I have got to get this weight back off, to look better and for my health. Wish me luck! I am setting my goal weight at 160 this time. That's what I have gotten down to about 3 or 4 times now. I keep trying to get lower than that, and that is when I fail. This time, no matter what the 'experts' say, I am going to be happy with 160...just look at how good my butt looked at that weight!

Here I am again...I am sick of doing this! I vowed over and over again to not do the YoYo, but I keep doing it! I read Dr. Wayne Dyer's 'Excuses Begone' I actually got it thinking that it would help me with my work life, but as I listened to the book, I realized that he was talking to me about my weight and health! I felt truly enlightened by listening to the words of the author. I can do this, it will be easy! I did it before, I know I can do it again.


Healthy Lifestyle Reboot!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Today was the day...I decided that the only way to get myself fully back on track is to step on the scale. The little Wii voice told me that I have gained three pounds since the last time I visited him...at least I am still in the "that's overweight" category and not back to "that's obese!"...three pounds in over a month....it could have been far worse. I am getting back on track before it becomes 5...10...20...40!!! I thought to myself... 'starting over' then I thought...NO...not starting over...I am not that far off track. I have been keeping up with exercise...drinking water and basically eating right...just snacking too much and giving into temptations of chocolate and salty snacks. I am just "re-booting" Every other time I have done this, I have ended up gaining it all back before I 'start over' so this time...I am doing the right thing....re-booting now and setting new goals. I have still lost 40 pounds and my new goal is about 20 more...that will get me to the "normal" range for BMI and I will be happy!
