Finally

Saturday, December 13, 2014

I was FINALLY able to run the entire 3.1 miles at a steady pace without stopping. I have been working on this for over a year. Not sure how it happened, I wasn't really planning on not stopping but when I got 0.5 miles in the point where I usually jog or walk for 0.05...I said "nah you can keep going" then 1 mile marker came up, "maybe just another 0.5 mile" the voice in my head said. Before I knew it the raced was over, and I ran the entire time, and I wasn't overly exhausted! Still havent met my less than 10 min/mile pace yet...but I'm getting there! I'm so glad I decided to start running...it is such a stress reliever!

    Outstanding! NOW, keep that in your weekly routine! I found it so easy to maintain when I started running! Yes, I've lost control and became addicted but it's so much FUN! Embrace Challenge and keep running!

Gave up the scale for Lent

Saturday, March 08, 2014

So even though I have been at this weight loss thing for 2 years now, I still was in the nasty habit of weighing daily . Then if it didnt reflect what I wanted it to I would make poor decisions because "it didnt matter what i did I still gained". So I have decided along with a small group to only weigh in weekly. And I already feel better about it :) I have only fallen off the wagon with my diet once over the past 2 weeks and have been 100% consistent with my exercise...Happy Saturday Sparkies!

Climbing Back on track AGAIn!

Saturday, March 01, 2014

Since learning that my dream of having my excess skin removed from my abdomen and arms was going to cost close to 20,000 I have been falling off the wagon more and more frequently :( I let myself fall into the mindset of " It doesnt matter how much I lose or how much muscle I build because I will never have the body I can be propud of in a bathing suit" So I ate however I wanted from Christmas unil 2 weeks ago, I still exercised but not daily and I let myself make excuses and get away with it...Finally when my jeans fit a little tight I decided enough was enough!
So here I am again back on track I have been able to exercise and eat right for the past 2 weeks, I pray that i can keep that motivation! Everyone is human....but Im not going to give up on myself again. Happy Weekend SParkies!

    Thanks Guys! I am glad to motivate others, and you're right I need to stop seeing the extra skin as having something I don't want, but as a reminder of where I have been and how hard I have worked! emoticon

    I know this doesn't always help, but you do have a body you can be proud of in a bathing suit. You have worked long and hard to get to where you are. Trust me, there are people out there who can appreciate what you. I dated someone who had gastric bypass and had lost probably close to 150 or more pounds. She had some extra skin, but I still loved seeing her in her bathing suit. And yours came from hard work and determination which gives you that much more to be proud of. It is a constant reminder to see, but it can be a good reminder of where you came from, or a reminder of not having what you want. It is a mindset, but remember what it took to get where you are, you look great now, it may not be perfect, but it is pretty dang good.

    I would have never guessed it cost that much. I can say this, tho: your pictures are a true motivator to us still on the road to wellness. How great you have done. It is a daily issue for me, and I hope you get that spark back under your fire again.

Back on Track

Sunday, October 06, 2013

So it's been a little over a month since my last blog and I am glad to say that Since then I have gotten back on track and am back to my pre-falling off the wagon weight. I picked running back up and couldnt be happier, my 5k time is 2 minutes better than last years 5k emoticon
I still fall of the healthy eating wagon periodically but am usually able to keep it in moderation, thanks to all my spark friends for keeping me encouraged! Just wanted to give a little update on my journey!

Shameful!

Monday, August 26, 2013

OMG! That is about all I can say about the past 2.5 weeks! I have totally and completely fallen off the wagon and gained 10 pounds. I have put HORRIBLE things in my body and have not even worked out once.....I dont know where all my will power went? Did it leave me since I am now comfortable with my body and weight (not happy but comfy)? I dont know what happened but it's time to get back in there....Go HARD or Go HOME time. Last night I got a random email updating me on changes to MySpace, a social site I havent been on since 2008. Looking through those pics made me realize just how far I have truly come and there's no since in stopping now. There confession time over.....I hope this let's people know in the future that it is ok to fall as Long as you get back up and fight twice as hard. Wish me Luck!

P.S. I'm attaching a pic from MySpace that made me say NEVER again can I be that way!

    I am there right now. For me it was a little thing here, little thing there, suddenly wham, all my healthy habits are gone. I am still struggling to find the path again and have had just some real crappy stuff to deal with. You will get there. I am sure of it. We have come to far to fall completely off. I am trying to remind myself, I can't let a few bad choices lead me back to where I was. I can't do it. We Got This!!!!!

    Thanks guys! I have been doing well and staying on track, once you fall it's hard getting back up! But like you said Gregg I'm a FIGHTER!

    You'll get past this and it will be a time of learning...you CAN keep going! I'm so proud of you and how far you have come...you ARE an encouragement to others and you are human. You'll get back on track and in the groove of your healthier eating (cause you feel better when you do:) and get back to exercising more (cause you feel better when you do:) Looking forward to hearing you bounce back!
