Yes, it is Saturday, been busy day, tired, but TOM is on his way. I am having horrible sweet cravings. For lunch, I tried the blueberry protein bar. It was terrible, I nearly gagged. The after taste was horrible. I cooked lasagna for dinner. This was good, I did my portions, my two slices of garlic toast, all my numbers are like perfect. I have no room to eat more. I snuck in a twinkie 150 calories...My daughter and hubby been eating reeses peanut butter eggs...OMGosh...the deadly sin. I have maintained. Next is ice cream.... I bought fruit, but I want the ice cream with the fruit on it. I can't fit it in either without being over...What should I do. I only did 60 min on my wii fit today. Tomorrow is my weigh in...OMGosh...what am I to do.. I know I should not eat any of it. Maybe it will get too late and I won't be tempted any more. I've done soooo good all week. Well, I drink some more water. Maybe that will help. Ok, I downed my water. I am full, but I have this stupid sugar craving. I get these when TOM is on the way. Sometimes I just give in, other times I don't. Sometimes it gets too bad, that I have to do something. This is not good. I will still be streaking because my streak is fitness. I just don't want to blow it. Why do our bodies go through these weird cravings. Why can't I be craving a salad. Sometimes I crave veggies when TOM is on his way, but no, not this time, it is sugar. Not just any sugar either. Dairy type like ice cream and berries, or fat free pudding (tapioca) or milk shake, or chocolate carmel cake....Oh man... this really sucks. Well, done rambling. I will go to bathroom get some more water and hope all goes well.

Well, I am day 16 streaking. My wii is playing tricks...It was down yesterday and I was up today. Ok, I looked at the graph. What is interesting is from Day 1 to now it has been going up and down but in a steady decline. It zig zags, but in a slant downward. This was interesting to me. This showed me that since I began, I have been steadily improving, even with the up/down/up down. I will be curious what my weigh in will be tomorrow. I did 60 min. today on my wii fit. I may do more later, but I did get 60 min. done. Something I did differently, I bumped my advanced free step up to 20 min. and put at fastest pace. I made sure to do full arm punches. My arms are killing me. I made sure I had my breakfast mostly done before workout. After workout, I had the whole wheat toast (1 slice). I am still drinking my fiber water, almost done. I soon have to be thinking about lunch. I am not sure what I will do for lunch today as I am not hungry, but I have to eat something. I haven't even figured out our dinner yet.
My wii fit keeps me pretty fired up. It is like once I get started, I just keep going. The hardest part is getting up to go do the wii fit, but I do it to keep my streak going. I even tell myself, well, today, I will just do my minimum, but once I am started, I end up doing more than my minimum. I am ok with this. I also bumped my super hula up to 6 min. Yikes...that was a workout. My daughter, she has to do what I did, so she got her hour done. I supervised today, as she likes to cheat, not do form, and get higher number. When I make her do perfect form, like you are suppose to, work towards it, she can't score as high.

Yeah, to some, I seem to be on fire. Thinking about it, some amazing things have happened and I've really no idea what has set me on fire. Well, after thinking about it, pondering, I realized that part of the fire inside of me, or the switch that came on, it was my "Motivational Story...Must Read...104 Years Old"
Last Monday, I went to morning water aerobics. It was filled with a lot of senior citizens. Yep, that is right, a pool of senior citizens. I was pretty amazed. The workout was really good. I was introduced to a woman. She was in a walker, she was blind, AND she was 104 years old! Not only was she 104 years old, she was in the pool working out! She did pretty awesome job keeping up. Wow, that was amazing. When I was in the pool, doing the workout, the one thing that ran through my mind was, I can't let these seniors out do me. I need to keep up and be a cruising. I worked extremely hard in the pool. I also thought, wow, 104 year old woman, and I better be able to workout an entire hour in this pool full force. Everytime I do my fitness, I think about this 104 year old woman. Lets just say, it was a little motivational. I have to say, it is sad for us younger folks to be out done by someone of the age 104. Next week, I am hoping she will allow me to take her picture and share with sparkspeople.
Right now, all I can do, is share the story. I guess, this has been partly what has helped me keep my streak going! I am on day 16!
This is just part of what is set me on fire, or turned the switch on, but it really does get you thinking. It also made me think of my great grandmother, who lived to be 106 years old and pretty healthy too.
YOU CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT! WE CAN DO IT! I HAVE TOO!

I've absolutely have amazed myself. I didn't know I had it in me. I saved enough room to schedule in my Chai Tea today. Wow, and then after dinner, I just had to go get on my wii fit and do 30 minutes. I can't let any extra calories go unburned. I felt like I had to do more because I had a chai tea. Yes, I am totally in range, totally healthy day, but I had to still do 30 min. more of exercise. I've been helping Shyanne with her room. Bunkbed is out. Her floor is vaccummed. Now she is scrubbing it by hand. Then I will re-vaccum it! Next, her dresser comes out of closet and cleaned out. Then her closet gets cleaned. Her computer table gets pulled out and cleaned. Oh yeah, momma cleaning house...lol...making her do most of it as it is her room. I just making sure it gets done right and from corner to corner. This will be a tomorrow project too. My husband got laid off today too. I am trying not to let it stress me out. Hard not too, but nothing I can do about it. We are trying to find all the POSITIVE in him being out of work.
I've amazed myself by all the fitness, being 15 days streaking, doing great with my eating. Been totally having healthy days. Wow. I did a bunch of crunches too. That was on top of my wii fit. I have no idea where or how this internal switch turned on. I can't even describe how I am feeling. It is just so amazing at how much I am doing. Also, I wonder, will this last? How long will I maintain this streak, will I go to just the minimum? Will I keep going? Will my scale move down, will I start to see body changes? Will I see the fat disappear off of my body? I don't know the answers except that I am trying very very hard and the switch is on.
My leg and foot is doing pretty good. I did an exercise today with my right leg. It was a little difficult, but I managed. My right side kind of on bottom is sore, but am being careful. I am babying the leg to some degree, but each day it seems to get better and stronger. I am really cautious with the exercises as I want to be able to maintain doing the exercises rather than putting myself down and not able too. Example, like the jumps on the MFC, I do ok with left leg, but really gentle with the right. I did better today then yesterday. Will have to wait and see what tomorrow brings. I know my husband and I have tons of errands and stuff to do tomorrow.
Amazing things are happening to me and I just don't know how to explain it or why I am feeling the way I am or anything, just that it is happening. My husband said he was proud of me and that I am doing very well.
Well, this is it for now, I feel as if I am rambling in circles. Time to relax, kick back, watch tv.

Today is Friday. It is my 15th day of streaking. I got up this morning not wanting to do anything, notta. I didn't even drink my cup of coffee. I grabbed my slim fast and drank it down. My daughter had the wii fit on, so I told myself, no matter what, I got to do 30 minutes on my wii fit to keep streaking. Ok, I got on it, I did some deep breathing - always start with that at least one time. I did the half moon stretch. Ok, now off to strength, did the twist, then did the crunch...ok, now to cardio. I need to make this a good workout, mostly cardio, since I plan on only doing 30 min today. I did the hula, did the hula again, did it again, step, then again, and again and again, then advanced step, and again, then it was to free step, now I am just a little past the 30 min...my piggy does the piggy dance. I continue on to an hour. Ok, break time, lets try the My fitness coach for 15 min to get a really good workout. Cool, awesome, made it through it! I have done my streak and more. I feel so great that I did it.
Now, I have to tell ya, my wii fit gave me a boost. How and why? I did the body test, I showed 193...wow, that got me a little motivated. My BMI was down, but that didn't motivate me like seeing it say 193. Wow, so I felt like working out extra hard. Now, I will have to wait until Sunday for my weigh in to see how I am doing. I can't count it until Sunday as it played tricks on me last week. It showed me 2 pounds down then Sunday came and I was only 1 pound down.
I have to say, the wii seems to be pretty accurate. It matches my regular scale for most part. It also flexes as much as my house scale... I don't know if my scale is going to show anything when it comes Sunday, but I am going to continue to work hard and keep working hard.
I have to say, this is really hard for me, truly hard, both emotionally and physically. I just can't handle the fact that I have had to start all this hard work from 197 and not the 189. I can't beat myself up over it, but it really does bother me. I worked so hard last year (2008) and only made it to 189, and I truly did work hard. Well, since it is 2009, I am working even harder. I am hoping by changing up my exercise routine, that I will be able to keep my body tricked into releasing.
Water Aerobics, that was suppose to happen today, again, but my sister called and had other plans. She said next week. What a bummer. Oh well. If I had the car, I would go myself, but don't so I will change it up with my own stuff. My fitness Coach will be doing plenty of that as well as my wii fit.
Changing it up, well, that is a combination of yoga, strength, aerobics, cardio, walking, water aerobics, dance (when I get my DDR).
Changing it up with my eating too. My calorie range goes from high side to low side. I am not keeping it perfect at a set amount...just being in range. Some days, I hit it a little low on the new calorie range, but I am in the range of the old range. Can't say this will work, but I sure am going to keep on trying.
OK, I feel like I am just rambling so closing for now.
