End of 3rd- 5 week challenge
Well, we all reported in our end results of last 5 week challenge (06/03/2014 thru 07/08/2014)

This time we ranged from a 5.5 lb loss to 1lb. to 0 weight loss. I was at a 2lb loss. At one point it was closer to 3 lbs but than the 4th of July weekend happened!! emoticon
I did learn some things this time around. Even though I manage to hit all my daily goals 75% of the time AND followed my workout schedule of cardio/strength 86% of the 35 days, I still only managed a loss of about .4 lbs per week!! So clearly I need to have a bigger calorie deficit. I learned that even if the Spark Calorie counter says you have 300 calories left at end of day, you don't eat a bowl of ice cream to use it up!! emoticon

So my goals for next 5 weeks ---07/09/2014 to 08/13/2014--

1) Lose 10lbs emoticon

2) Do all scheduled cardio/strength training workouts
*** 86% of the time or better is the goal *** emoticon

3) Stay within my Spark Calorie Goals - --plus maintain a daily 350 calorie deficit-- (something has to change!!) emoticon

4) Track all my fitness/nutrition.

5) Try and hit all these goals 80% of the next 5 weeks emoticon

I'll report back here after Aug. 13th. My reward to myself for accomplishing all this is, extra spending money for my vacation on the Oregon Coast!! A girls gotta shop right??!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

WOW!! Talk about inspiration!!

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Didn't really realize this till a few days ago, but the Governor's Cup Marathon is today & part of the long stretch, goes right down our country road!! I didn't want to be in their way, so I did my workout inside, on my elliptical this morning. I did go out to cool down & was able to see these fabulous, amazing people doing what they do,,going for their goals. There were all types,,young, old, fast, slow,running, jogging, walking, men, woman & kids!! You see the fast ones come in big packs and than the slower ones are spaced out...but either way, I just wanted to cheer and encourage every single one!! They were ALL such an inspiration to me. I think about my own goals, my struggles and my victories over the last year...I'm sure they all have an amazing story to share!!! Thanks to all of you out there pushing through and accomplishing your goals,,your an inspiration to me!! emoticon emoticon

So just wondering....

Sunday, May 25, 2014

We took the 4 wheeler out for a "nice" little ride...well that's what my hubby said,,,next thing I know were way up high on a mountain peak,,snow packed, with lots of melting snow and MUD and we got stuck,ON A CLIFF!! ,,,hhmmm so much for a relaxing ride,,,!! We were able to maneuver out of that mess but not before I about had a anxiety attack!! So.... I'm wondering if being scared senseless counts as cardio?? ha ha emoticon

But,,the one bit of revenge I got was on Saturday. We took the boat out for the first time this year and did a little fishing,,,well needless to say I out fished him!! HHMMM???? Maybe that's why we took that mountain road today?? emoticon

    Gorgeous shot!! MT truly is the Big Sky State. I think unless you live here you don't ever really understand that term.

    Yeah, this is the reward we get for putting up with the weather, but it is certainly worth it. Some years back, a carload of tourists stopped at the end of my road to photograph the Tobacco Root Mountains and said how lucky I was to live here, I just smiled and said that yes, somebody had to do it.
You DO all realize that if we had perfect or even California weather, this state would be up to its neck in people. No thanks.

    I love to go for a walk before the sun comes up. Starts off the day so much better than sleeping in!
emoticon Perfect picture. It's nice the sun is coming up earlier and it's so much warmer than just a month ago!!

    The crack of dawn is a special gift of nature. Enjoy it and be safe! I've never been to Montana. It looks beautiful.

    Toni, are you walking or hiking? I struggle with how safe it is [especially, with the women who have been missing or murdered here in Montana]; that school teacher in Sidney was killed about a block from my aunts house out in the country [she was on a 6am run] woke my Aunt up and well, I just don't trust.. there are too many people missing [men and women] here in MT. (How about that other gal, they found her car but still haven't found her.. I just don't think it's safe if your out there alone... please take precautions if your out there by yourself. My husband & I take pepper spray and if we're walking in the wilderness, my husband packs.. better to be safe than sorry.)

emoticon Wish we had room for a BIG old dog... lol! emoticon


Carry a big stick or take some defense classes.. emoticon

Lot's of prayer, trust, and discernment.. emoticon emoticon emoticon
