Prior To SP's New You Bootcamp & Being A Butterfly In 2009!!!

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Yesterday I signed up for SP's NEW YOU BOOTCAMP, and I thought that that would be a great challenge for the 2 teams that I lead to start off the new year, with SP as a team.

I hope that they each want to do it, maybe someone in one of the teams will win a prize!!!

I'll put up a new post under our challenges forum and those who decide to do it can chat about the daily mini-challenges and workouts.

I'm excited about it because I can use some motivation and ideas.

*Oh, and I just got Jillian Michael's: 30 Day Shred from Netflix today. I watched the level one just to get an idea before I start and to see what equipment I'd need. & all I can say from looking at it is emoticon but I'll see about adding it.

*What else is going on for mom's birthday is tomorrow! I'm thinking about going back to school sometime next year. I'm looking at counseling (I like both college & grade school & love career & International) ... we'll see, I'm researching now...

Oh and lastly (is that even a word?), I've gained an even higher all time high, I now weigh 210 lbs. standing @ 5'6". Oh well, the year 2009 is surely to bring some greater changes & hopefully the need for less medication!!
I feel like I've been growing in this post-hospitalization cocoon for a long year, but I need to let God continue to work me into that beautiful butterfly through 2009!
I can do it! You can do yours! And we can be Healthy & Fit!!!

    I understand your pain with gaining weight. I have been gaining since September. Oh sure, just a pound here and a pound there, but when your already overweight it just made me feel that much more lumpy. I have just made a commitment to myself to take small steps in improving my overall health and weight. Make small goals into habits. I know it is easier said than done, but knowing from prior experiences once it is a permanent habit it will be that much harder to break. So keep your faith up, pat yourself on the back for all you have accomplished so far, and try to break up your goals in smaller chunks. Remember that with God you can overcome all!

My Plan To Be F.I.T. This Season!

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

So in this last month of the year 2008, I figure that I have 31 days to end the year and begin 2009, being more Fit! This is a refreshing way to enjoy this month expecting an overflow of blessings & unimaginable favor!

emoticon I'm looking into finding the best nutrition program for me (HMR or Jenny Craig or a weight management class at the local Community College or just me and SP???).
emoticon Every week I am doing at least 1 Spark Video, 1 on my own exercise & 1 hour of FitTV exercise. And a little bit of stretching everyday!
(This is harder than I thought!)
emoticon I am spending more time being and speaking positive enriching words and deeds to myself and others!

emoticon'Tis the season to be F.I.T.!!! emoticon

'Tis The Season To Be F.I.T.!

Monday, December 01, 2008

In December many celebrate the birth of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. This month I'll also celebrate the rebirth of a F.I.T. me! Doing things that will help keep this vessel which God molded healthier, wiser and happier!

Last month didn't really end as I thought, I gained weight and slacked on my exercise. But my eating habits did improve! emoticon I know that sounds odd, but just eating right won't do it for me. I really need to move in order for this weight to come off!

So in this last month of the year 2008, I figure that I have 31 days to end the year and begin 2009, being more Fit! This is a refreshing way to enjoy this month expecting an overflow of blessings & unimaginable favor! 'Tis the season to be F.I.T.!!!

    I also slacked off in the exercise department last month. This month I plan to exercise in the morning while my kids are in school instead of in the evening. Maybe that'll do it? Good luck to you and to a healthy end to 2008!

    I just love the title of this blog. You will reach all your goals and expectations. I agree and believe you can and will do it. The end of the year was slow for me. I do appreciate all of your encouragement. When you are not able to Spark as usual it is a big difference. You are a great leader and I am so glad that you started this team. I don't have sat or cable at this time to watch FitTv but it is still my favorite channel. You stay encouraged and with God all things are possible. Let Him do the leading. He knows where you are supposed to go. Be very blessed!!!

Update 11/26/08, Pursuit of A Well Kept Me!

Monday, December 01, 2008

(UPDATE 11/26/08) At my weigh-in my nutritionist told me to focus on being HEALTHIER instead of loosing weight. That the latter way could sabotage me. So I'm going to try to do that! I'm taking my ticker away from my SP page so that I don't look at that whenever I go to it. But I'll still keep track on SP. I'm also going to try to not weigh myself at hone (unless I have problems w/ me cardiatric stuff) and just get weighed once a week at the clinic.
I'm also going to put a few non-weight goals, healthy/fitness ones. For example: be able to walk around the track at the city college without stopping or being able to stretch without having tight stiffness or cracking in more than one area! I'll put it below.
So let's see how this goes!

*Find cardio I can/will do weekly
*Stretch daily

*Pray and follow His direction
*Study the WORD

***HMR Program 13 week Weigh-ins 2008-2009***
11/12/08*** 205
11/15/08*** 202.8
11/17/08*** 201.2 Beginning Full Program Weight
11/26/08*** 203 Program change, FOCUS on Halthy & Fitness



02/14/09***___._ Actual. 3 month Review. Goal: 185/165 lbs

Scheduled Weigh-in for Today, What's Happening???

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

So today, Wednesday November 26, 2008 is the day that I scheduled with my nutritionist a few weeks ago. She is more than supportive in being there for me in whatever healthy route I chose to losing weight and being a healthy and fit person. So every WEd. @ 2pm is my time to go to the clinic to weigh-in.

Initially today was to be a one week measuring, if you would. But as things turn out, I'm weighing more so I think that I will use today as a starting point. I know, I know, seems like I've had a lot of those lately. I don't know what's happening to me this year. Recovering from the hospital complications and those 2 surguries is so not like I thought!

So today I'll go in and record my weight (I know it's the middle of the day so it might be a few pounds more due to eating). I'll figure out what I need to do to really be successful at getting healthier and losing weight. I don't want to lose hope but it just feels so out of reach. And I really want to look different for me. I want to feel better for me. I want to look at my lab results and see numbers that reflect a very healthy person. I want others to be inspired my success at being a healthy person. I want my doctors and family and friends to see a difference and be proud and smile at the great change that they see. Most importantly, I want God to get all the glory in the effort and the evidence that I have a healthier vessel.

So the rain has stopped for another few moments and I am almost on my way to my first scheduled weigh-in.

    Inspiration comes from within. You have inspired me because out of the things that you've been through you still have joy! You still reach out & you still encourage others. You are our miracle & its wonderful to be apart of your team!
