HAPPY THANKSGIVING...and a wii balance board ;)

Thursday, November 28, 2013

To all, I hope you have a fantastic (and somewhat healthy) Thanksgiving, I will not be rushing out the door tomorrow for the black Friday sales, instead I will be staying in with my step daughter and working up a sweat! My fiancÚ is getting me the Wii board...again...so that I can lose the rest of my weight, I lost 80 pounds playing on it the first time and I am a true believer that FUN is FIT!
Tonight we will be working out with the Just Dance 2013 game and them some Cardio Boxing :) Plus we will be making a spread sheet of our goals for 2014! I LOVE GOALS!!!
I don't have to weigh in at work for another 7 days so my goal is to be 229 (down a decade) for the next weigh in :) Out team is 73% complete with our goal! And we still have another month and a half to go!
I am getting the GoPro Hero+ camera for Christmas this year! I am hoping that it excels my want for hiking and doing more outdoor activities, for Valentines day I am hoping to get the head attachment so we can film our kayaking trips :)
Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Turkey Day!
Gobble Gobble,

Misty

I am not new to the workout scene...

Saturday, November 23, 2013


I have gone through many weight hurdles in my life and I need to start fresh so I can achieve my goals, and I am making smaller goals for myself instead of huge leaps, instead of 3 pounds a week I am settling with .8 pounds a week, and the days I go over are just bonuses! (good bonuses, at that). I have done a lot of thorough planning over the summer and came to the conclusion that I have the choice to be fat or fit and I am choosing the latter. I love clothes, I love being active, and I love hanging out with friends doing fun exhilarating activities, but I ALWAYS stop myself from buying what I want, wearing that awesome bathing suit or tight fitting sweater I didn't look good in, or even going on group adventures because of the way I look and feel. I am SO incredibly sick of being this way and I have officially put my foot down. Its the first time in a LONG time that I feel the energy and finesse inside myself to accomplish the task set at hand. I have the surroundings and the ability to do well, and time is not something I have to fear, so with all of that in mind I will be setting short small simple goals for myself and reward myself along the way. I currently weigh 232 pounds, a month ago I weighed 242 pounds, my goal for the rest of the year is to lose 7 more pounds to reach my goal at my place of work for the group I am a part of, I don't want to disappoint the other team members, or throw them off the winning streak we are currently in :) I am going to start participating in more group activities to gain more confidence in myself and maybe even lose more weight :)
Once I lose my last 7 pounds of the year I will reward myself with a new Wii fitness game to jump into the new year with. The goal for our team is to lose 206 pounds all together, once we accomplish that goal many of us will continue on independently and hopefully make a new team and new goal for the next year :)
Once I reach end of the year goal I will weigh 225 pounds, I am looking to lose about 25 pounds next year (small increments are much easier to deal with than stating I will lose 50 or 80 pounds in that year) I think 2014 will be the year of "less is more" when talking about weight loss, I feel I will be able to manage my fall backs easier, and I wont be so hard on myself. I am getting married in June of 2015 and would like to look great for it, and with this new plan I think I can start feeling better about myself, my body, my life, and the "big day". I encourage everyone out there that is having a hard time losing the pounds to reevaluate there current plan, and to educate themselves on healthy weight loss and nutrition. It is such a important part of our life and life is to short to be miserable!

Cheers!

So Many Fails and a Kayak!

Saturday, December 22, 2012

I dont understand why i convince myself to stop once i reach a 15 pound weightloss. I tell myself "you can eat that piece of chocolate pie, you lost the weight already and it will only be an extra workout tomorrow" Plus i always tell myself TOMORROW! I have to stop this trend and start picking my self up and just get myself in gear. Now is a better time than ever though and my b/f will be joining me weather he realizes it or not. I have been cooking healthier and he has enoyed it thus far, i am cutting half the meat out of our diets because we eat to much of it as is. Back to fish, veggies and yogurt! i enjoyed it once before when i lost 80 pounds so i just have to get myself back in the old groove of things and finish losing the weight!
I started a secret kayak fund in my ceramic fish vase the other day. I cleaned all around the house and the laundry room and probably found $30 in change, still havent cleaned out the vehicles yet either! I am hoping to have enough in $1-$5 and change by June to buy the kayak :) Whatever i need left over i will do OT at work to makeup for it. I think it will be a great surprise to the b/f and it is something healthy we enjoy doing together :)

    I am so glad that someone else found my idea inspiring! I thought it would be a good idea, we usually take all of our change and go out to a nice resteraunt with it every year or buy a couple new movies and a lot of snacks, this way we will have a motivator and a fun yearly activity to do instead. I think i am going to aim high every year and get a new "toy" for outdoor activitys by creating funds :)

Keeping the ball rolling!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

So i am down 11 pounds since my re-start, i have planned out my October goals and trackers to keep me motivated. I realized i should be focusing month to month instead of year to year, i dont know why i previously planned out all my workouts a year in advance (craziness)...
So instead i am focusing on a lose weekly schedual that thus far i have kept most of the "promises" made to myself. My friend and i have been going together for about 3 weeks, skipping the weeknends, we usually get there for 5am and work out until a little after 7am. I am not seeing many physical improvements yet, but i feel better emotionally an feel stronger.
One of the trainers offered to train us for free for the remainder of our membership (6 months) he has us on a schedual at the gym that feels really good, it is kicking my ass some days but is well worth it.
Heres to keeping focused and feeling better!

once again...

Saturday, September 15, 2012

well, i fell off the weight loss wagon a couple months ago and regained everything i had lost. i am turning a new leaf and have already seen almos 7 pounds come off in the past week and a half. This time my boy friend is joining me in the healthy eating area, and my friend is attending the gym with me 3 times a week (at least) i have taken on a new project of painting our bedroom this weekend so i will not be making it to the gym, i hope to burn a lot of calories painting (all by hand, no rollers needed!) I hope that it will feel more like a bedroom in there once i am done and i can utilize all the spare room we will have once i am done rearranging the furniture :) We are using the guest room upstairs as the new "man cave" so all the computer stuff will be going in there to act as a office on one side and we are purchasing a bowflex for the other, i will soon have no excuses to back me up anymore and i feel i can really accomplish my goals this time. I am having a hard time adjusting to eating good this time and find myself not wanting to eat at all, it is difficult for me to get over this hump but as long as i stay focused i am sure i will manage.

    You can do this, you did it before so you know how. It's all in the planning and you seem to have that under control. When you plan your menus, give yourself something to look forward to so that you want to do well to get to the treat. We're here to help in any way we can, ;)
