Non Scale Victories & Football~2 of my favorite things :)

Friday, November 21, 2014

I just realized that Thursday marked the 75th day of my 100 day challenge!! emoticon I'm amazed that Iíve stuck with my plan this long,,hasnít always been pretty but I've stayed on the path I laid out 75 days ago. I realized I have hit every single planned workout!! Something like 66 workouts!! OMG! emoticon The scale hasn't moved much, but I definitely think I should take my measurements,,I think some shrinkiní has got to be going on!! You know how your clothes start to fit differently?? And just how your body feels when you move?? I'm feelin' it!! emoticon This weekend will be tough though, a couple of my favorite things: FOOD & FOOTBALL!! emoticon emoticon
I'll do some extra cardio and be happy for the N. S. Vís I've had !!

I'M BACK....(not that I went anywhere !!)

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

I'M BACK..(not that I went anywhere ha ha) For whatever reason I see my motivation/will power slipping?? Maybe it's the length of time? Maybe its the holidays?? Whatever it is, I've got to pull myself up by my bootstraps and march forward!! "I don't always have to like it, I just have to do it!!® So with my refreshed attitude I've decided to change my plan, just a little! I'm still going for my deficit each day but from now forward I'll also be staying within my Spark nutrition plan each day..If I stay within my allotment I get a emoticon ,,if I miss it, I log a emoticon ,,and of course if I crash and burn it's a !BOMB! emoticon I'll still track my deficits the way I was tracking,,should be interesting to see what happens from week 11 thru 16,,,throw in Thanksgiving, a week in Vegas and Christmas!! YIKES!! Hoping at the very least to maintain,,but I'd still like to lose,,I'm NOT done with this 100 challenge,,not by a long shot!! Keep on Keepin' on !!

    When I was a nanny, I used to make up names for what we were eating for lunch. Baloney sandwiches sometimes became "moosemeat sandwiches" :-)
I'm sure you could make "lizard noodle soup"!

One year later...it's been a wild ride!!

Friday, August 29, 2014

It truly is hard to believe it has been 1 year since I last set my goals. Last September (2013) was a pretty dark time in my life. My mom had just passed away, very unexpectedly & I was a train wreck. The grieving had taken a huge toll on me physically and emotionally. Spiritually, my relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is what ultimately help me through the whole last year. emoticon

Physically I had gained back over 10lbs I had worked so hard to lose, I had anxiety attacks everyday, even in my sleep, needless to say I wasn't sleeping either. I had heart palpitations, broke out in a weird rash on my arms, cried at the drop of a hat, on and on, you get the picture.

I decided it was time to get a grip,,I couldn't go on living like that. I knew exercise and good nutrition would be my ticket. so I started a journal. Set physical, emotional and spiritual goals. I tracked EVERYTHING!! I prayed for the strength, ability, comfort and wisdom to push forward. And slowly, things started to turn around. By Christmas I had RE-LOST the 10lbs I had gained. Physically, some of the real bad issues had all but disappeared. Of course it goes without saying I still grieve and miss my mom every single day, but now I can get through the day without feeling like I'm having a heart attack!!

emoticon

January of 2014 a small group of family and friends started a "lifestyle change", wasn't just about losing weight but being as healthy, fit and present in our daily lives as we could possibly be. Being the BEST we could be. We all had our own personal goals. We decided to end it in August with a trip to the ocean. We are pretty much landlocked in Montana,,sometimes ya just need your ocean fix!! SparkPeople was a very important tool for me in my journey. The tracking, the support and encouragement from awesome Spark Friends, the inspirational stories, the recipes, just everything was huge in helping me stay on track. emoticon

By August 16th, I had lost an additional 10lbs, 20 all together, I finished a C25K running program and went on to run a 10K in honor of my mom, and I have completed almost every goal I had started journaling about. OH and I also celebrated my 50th birthday haha and welcomed my 2nd precious grandbaby into the world. And the best thing is, I feel so much better inside and out. I have a way to go still, but I know I can do it! So September 2014 is like a fresh start for me. I'm setting some new goals,, so bring on the New Year!! emoticon

Here's a few pic's from our trip :)



The night before we left the Lord Blessed me with this sunset,,took it at a stop light ha ha



First stop was in Couer d'Alene ID at a diner I saw on "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives" had to try the homemade pecan carmel rolls,,well worth the calories!!



Bridge of the Gods



Early morning beach combing



Our beach!



Beautiful sunset from our deck..

.

Enjoying the last moments...
