baby steps adding up

Saturday, August 17, 2013

I know that little changes will make the difference but sometimes making the "right" choice is soooo difficult. The family did a bike ride, the first 1/2 mile was killing my legs and it was only a very slight incline. The next full mile was mostly slight decline, then it was back to incline. Everyone else was fine with it, I was panting and sore and sweaty and just wanted to give up. I made it two miles and was done, knowing I'd have to do two miles back to our car. I seem to disappoint the family and that just killed me. Totally took the wind out of my sails. I just wanted to cry but I biked back to the car and off we went. Wanted to go to Rita's. Decided that I should log all my food for the day first. oh, I'm already over. I really wanted a sweet treat but not if I'm ever going to make any of my goals a reality. I'm having a hard time staying positive and on track but I know I need to. Tomorrow is another day. I've got no time for excuses and I've got to get my shhhhhhhh...... stuff together!

bittersweet end to vacation....

Friday, August 16, 2013



Had an amazing time visiting Maryland and meeting our new niece, but too much eating and not enough tracking lead to a gain... hoping it's mostly sodium and that I'll get back on track....

Only 37 pounds to onederland and I'm pumped and ready to attack! Here's to a wonderful weekend, eating at home and being mindful of exactly what I'm eating throughout ever day!

"If you want to hear God laugh..... tell him your plans"

Saturday, August 03, 2013

the story of my life lately. I'm weighing in daily but that's about it right now. I'm hoping to get on track but right now I just don't have my "head in the game" for a number of reasons BUT... the increased activity, water and freggies have been helping soooo... here's to being me and knowing that sometimes I CAN'T do it ALL.

so, I reached out today, and decided to set goals and revamp my page.... and well, here goes....

Gain Strength and Energy, focus on the positives of this journey, and encourage my SparkFriends along the way!

    Save $1 per pound lost, you can also deposit change in a jar for fitness. for example each fitness minute equals 1 penny. It adds up and makes things a little more fun. (this is what i've started doing)

Take progress pictures Every 10-20 lbs and make a scrap book of all progress also include your Non scale victories, these are very important! Especially for those times when the scale refuses to move. Those moments of victory will help keep you from quitting.

Get a Hair cut, or hair color

Get a pedometer- compete with yourself to get more steps in each day

Subscribe to a health magazine

Anything that doesn't cost much to make you feel good about yourself. Make-up, costume jewelry, a new purse, hair clips, inspiring music, art supplies, etc. The list can be endless.

Hope this helps! you will do great! I can't wait to see your progress
