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!

A Day To Throw It Away... Clean Beginnings

Friday, November 21, 2008

On Monday I will have an interview at my house and I really NEED to have my place CLEANED to a T (what does a t stand for anyway?)!

So I was just thinking that I have so much clutter that I won't be able to really get through everything (in terms of sorting through, that never works). So I think that I might just start throwing it all away. Even the good stuff. I have LOTS of books, papers, gifts, kitchen appliances, LOTS of clothes, nick knacks, you name it it's almost in my home!

I have a real problem with the "I might need it later, I can still use it, I could sell it (on Ebay or the swapmeet across the street, or give-it-away", so much that I can't seem to really have a clean house, or parking lot storage space or get rid of my renting storage room! Yes I have clutter in all three of those places.

So is it bad when I get to the point when I feel like I just have to throw stuff away? I mean, I want to have a nice neat and clutter free place like I used to. It's just the hardest thing for some reason to get back the life I use to have. It's draining I know... so maybe I can actually have a better chance at a clean beginning if I use this Saturday as a day to throw it away!

I think I have to keep saying it so that it actually happens. Well any help, encouragement, inspiration or suggestions to help get me to a successful clean day, is welcomed! Thanks!

    I live in an apartment but did live in a house at one time. I saved things I never used. One day a month I go through everything. If I don't need it or use it I get rid of it.

    Thanks for your input ladies, I really appreciate it!
You know, I would love to give to those who lost in the fire. The only problem is that they are asking that people ONLY give if their MONEY and TIME.
I will donate some, possibly to my church so they can use it in their rummage sales (whatever is left from that sale theygive to local thirft shops). Also I really could use the money myself.

I mostly threw away papers and old medicine bottles. I still have much to do. So I'll see what I can accomplish before noon tomorrow.

Thanks again!

    Not too long ago our church leaders said that unless you really need the money, it is better for you to donate usable items to people who need them than to sell the items. With all the homes that were destroyed in your area recently, there must be people who would totally appreciate anything you could donate. You should definitely take that frame of mind into going through and thinning out. Think of all the good you can do!

    Good luck tossing. I would put them in a box and head to the closes place to donate them. There are so many needy people out there that need things. Unless they are broken I would not toss them in the trash.

I was there once and really appreciated the help and now I give back to the places that helped me before.

God Bless

    I don't know if it's bad but we're in the same boat. You sound like me...only much braver! I've been slowly trudging my way through the house trying to reduce the clutter for the past month. It's so hard that I have to just toss it all into boxes and put them in the car to haul away to donate before I lose my nerve. We have totes filled with clothes that my kids have outgrown (my son is 16, daughter is 9...needless to say YEARS of clothes). Maybe it's a women trait to "save" everything because we might need them later lol. Both my husband and my son are minimalists...I really envy them. My daughter and I on the other hand are the worst packrats. I had to pry away her toddler toys from her that she hasn't played with in five years. Good luck on your clean and toss day!
