Day 1 Streaking to Summer

Thursday, March 21, 2013



Today I have already done 35 minutes on the Wii and plan to add additional walking / DVD's this afternoon.

Today's thought: I will rejoice at the example of others who have lost weight!

This was from an email I received today from Devotions for Dieters.

It really made me think that sometimes we get jealous of the fact that others are reaching their goals and we have not. However we need to be happy for them and use it to motivate us knowing that it is possible to reach our goals. We just need to remember that everybody is different and it responds differently to change.





As I tell customers if everyone was the same there wouldn't be a need for so many types of wine. It is the same with exercise and diet, what works for you may not work for me and vice versa.

Have a great weekend! Hope this snow doesn't get too deep.

Streak into Spring Day 20

Thursday, March 21, 2013



This was a great jumping board to getting my streak going again. My next goal is to continue the streak through the first day of Summer which is 92 days away.

Today I did 35 minutes on the Wii as well as some walking. Also we racked our Blackberry Mead today so that was a lot of work as well as cleaning.







Quote of the Day:"Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact."– William James

We all need to believe that life is worth living. That is when we have the most fun. It can be the little things like walking in the sun or big like playing with our kids. When we are healthy and fit life is so much more fun.







Have a great day.

Streak into Spring Day 18 & 19

Tuesday, March 19, 2013





I worked out yesterday on the Wii and also did some walking. I had to go in town yesterday to drop off some paperwork and do some shopping. It was later when I got back so decided not to post.

Today I did 40 minutes on the Wii and also walked a mile.

My quote for today: "When a man is sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself."
– Sir Alexander Paterson

When our motivation to live a healthy life is strong, we will have the discipline to do the workouts and eat healthy.








I can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of the Streak into Spring Challenge.

It has helped me to get back into a routine of working out since I had such bad sinus / chest infections this winter. I am looking forward to continuing to workout this Spring and Summer.

I have looked at my schedule for this Spring and Summer and it is filling up with numerous tastings and starting in May on Sunday is our live music. So this challenge has really helped.





Since I have done so well on getting in my cardio that I need to start working on adding more strength training.

Streak into Spring Day 17

Monday, March 18, 2013



A cold wet day today. It rained off and on almost the whole day. So I did get in some extra workout time today. I did 60 minutes on the Wii as well as doing some strength training.

Quote of the Day:"Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it."– William C. Durant

It is so easy to remember what we did wrong but we need to forget the mistakes and look forward to what we are going to do to change our life for the better.







What rewards have you used to motivate you to keep working out? I have started a fund to be able to pay for my dress and shoes for the wedding. I am putting one dollar a day that I workout. If I workout everyday until his wedding, I should have over $250 dollars saved.




Have a great day.

Keep Sparkin'!

Streak into Spring 16

Sunday, March 17, 2013



I can't believe that Spring is only 4 days away. Still going strong with doing 30 minutes on the Wii and adding additional exercise. I did Part 1 Leslie Sansone Walk at Home 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk a 12 minute mile walk today as well as her 3 min mini walk and T-Tapp Hoe Downs: 3 minutes of carb busting all of these were available on YouTube.

It is surprising how much is available on it. This will make it easier for me to workout when I am traveling in April for the Women's National Bowling Tournament in Reno.







That is why I am trying to find different videos to do to add some variety and enjoyment to my exercise.

Quote of the Day
"Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark."– Henri Frédéric Amiel

We all have the same 24 hours in the day but until we find our passion for getting healthy nothing will happen. We have to find the magic / belief that we can obtain our goals.





We all need to have self respect! This is one great picture. I am going to print it out so I can see it everyday.
