Master Cleanser - Night Before

Thursday, July 12, 2007

So I have everything to start the Master Cleanser tonight, I will start with a lax tea. I'm waiting to see if my boyfriend is comeing for dinner, it will be my last bite of food until the fast is over!

I want to write down all of my reasons for doing the fast, problems that I have now (so that I can compare the results). I'll do that later, like tomorrow because I 'm tired.

Kay, now I'm just praying that I joyfully accept God's will to be done!

    Hope you're doing better than me! I think I'm done! It's so sad! I keep trying to do it, but I can't seem to get past the lax tea! I've drank it for two nights (not consecutively) and today my fiance' even made my first glass of lemonade for me. I hadn't had my morning dose of lax tea, so I just let the lemonade sit there...and sit there...and sit there! Finally, at like 3 in the afternoon, as I sat feeling weak and hungry with a headache, I just looked at the tea and lemonade that was still sitting there. Mentally I just totally rejected it! The thought of drinking the tea and lemonade just left me feeling sick, uninspired, deprived, and irritated. Finally, I just said "forget it" and ate something. I want to do it...I want to get healthy and lose weight...but I am just starting to really hate this whole process. It's a lot harder for me than I thought it would be! Hope you're having more success!!!

Stage 2 starts w/ Bloating & Fibroids actin' up, Blessing in Disguise

Sunday, July 08, 2007

Well, today I start Stage 2, I can't believe it's been 2 weeks already. I've been a little disappointed by some weight fluctuation, food craving and a lack of energy to workout. But I am soooo happy, and proud that I am still here!

It's not the easiest thing, to revamp your lifestyle to a healthier one, at least not for me. But SP and the communities I've joined have been a great help.

I just started my menstral cycle which is not so simple when you have large fibroids. The stuff that I have to deal with for 7 plus days and on every hour like clockwork. These things is so tiring that writing the details would be like a horror story gone wrong! So my weight has been going up and down, constant headaches for the last 3 days and more. I just have not felt so well, which can definately be a great place for depression to set in. But I won't let it...God won't have it so! Which is one reason I'm glad he keeps sending me favor and grace and wonderful other things in my life. Like, I am so glad that i have read (& will continue to read) what others have written about how they have gotten through various opsticles. This type of support is priceless.

So my stage 2 invite came at a good time. I wasn't going to continue on (just repeat St. 1) because I didn't do everything at an A plus plus standard, but what is the standard? I was suppose to check out the SP site and become familiar with the community and the way things work. I have earned 696 Spark Points so far and I plan to earn several more before today ends! I have done more movement with my body in the last 2 weeks than I have since 2007 started. I acatually pay attention to what I'm putting in my mouth and how often. I used to eat 1 - 2 meals a day that has only happend a few times. I hardly ever drink water, or enough constistantly. And these past 2 weeks I drank at least 8 cups a day!!!!!

This is turning out to be a great change for me. Like the song says..."We're just ordianry people...take it slow" Opps, no, I'm not an ordinary person, the bible says that I am a parculiar person, from the royal preisthood of the God Almighty. So no matter, what I am truly blessed to be able to say that I am on my way.... I can do it at my speed!



July is here...Soon to be 33 !!!Entry #1

Monday, July 02, 2007

Well, I started my Birthday Challenge and I have 3 things I hope to accomplish. So far I'm doing pretty good.

#1: Loose 3 pounds by the 26th (or this month).
#1a: Pay away $3.00 for every pound lost (this month only).

#2: Pay away $3.00 for every 100 minutes of excersie.

#3: Do the Master Cleanse for at least 10 days this month (my 1st time).

I brought the Master Cleanse book and read it. I did a litlle walking yesterday. And I'm gonna try to start adding fruit and veggies to my diet (Karmeisha I'm not ready for just fruits & veggies only to prep) before starting. But you go girl!

We'll see how I ease myself into this new way of living for me. Or as my Dr. T says...I'm on a "back to health roll". I'm not taking leeps and sprinting, so just let me roll!!!!

July Birthday Challenge Ideas??? (July 26)

Monday, June 25, 2007

Okay It's my 2nd day as a member and I'm getting used to SP. I havn't gone for my walk yet but my official date is actually July 1st and there's still the evening to walk (so I havn't really missed my day's goal).

So anyway, this blog is because I'm just starting this weight loss & lifestyle change and am looking for some extra motavation...a challenge! My 33rd birthday is coming up on the 26th of July, 2007 and I want something extra to celebrate.

Any suggestions for a challenge???? If your birthday is in July you should join the challenge with me (once we get one)!!! Or if you just want to celebrate an accomplishment for the month of July... join in! Us leos are sooo generous arn't we! lol

Okay, I hope people write (on this blog) some ideas for a July month challenge and even a birthday reward idea!

My prayers are with you!

    Well tomorrow I start my Birthsay Challenge! I'm preparing for a wonderful victory and I believe that God will see me through. My Challenge is as follows: Lose 3 pounds and add $3.00 for every pound lost. Also, add 100 minutes of exercise adding $3.00 for every 100 minute mark. My reward is a trip to the Glen Ivy Hot Springs. The first and last time I went ws on my 26th birthday, (at the end of my radiation treatment). so now 7 years later to return will be a form of wholeness!
I made a chart to put on my wall and record my daily minutes, money earned and weight lost.
I'll try to write as much as possible. I'm thinking of doing a detox/cleanse for 14 days in between...we'll see how that goes.
Stay in touch!

    2 more days til July 1st. So far I think I'm gonna try Sharon's suggestion of
Challenge: Lose 3 pounds from July 1 - 26th.
Rewards: I'm still trying to work out.
I am also going to add the 100 minute BBQ Challenge: But instead of putting in $1 for every 100min exercised I'm looking to do $2 or 3. This way I'll be able to pay for my reward!!!

Well, I can't wait, although I'm still a little scared of how well I'll do.

Keep the ideas coming ladies, I have a few more days intil July 1st. And I could always do more than one challenge and/or move an idea to another month...
Whatever I choose to do, I'll share for sure!
Thanks again Sharon!

My Inspirational Quote #1

Sunday, June 24, 2007

"I will praise You (Oh Lord), for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well."

~Psalm 139:14 (New King James Version)

Do you have a verse or mantra that you can say to keep your self-esteem up and your well being balanced? If so, what is it? When do you say it?
I'm going to try this one every morning or as often as I can.
