Restarted My Exercise, & Did A Lil Running! Or Maybe It Was A Jog! LOL

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I am starting slow! Since my last blog I have walked around the musuem, walked/jogged around the neighborhood and did stretch cardio at church.

I also signed up for SP's Virtual 5k for April (it'll be my 1st 5K ever) and enrolled in the Walk/Jog Training course. 3 Days a weekworth of instruction.

As far as my's been okay with just wearing it in a pontytail and styling it for church ...but I did wait about a week before really going for a WALK LOL
Actually I'm going to wear some natural styles (no Press&Curl) for a lil bit. I may put a weave in for a lil bit...not too sure, as I like being creative with my hair. All that to say I won't let my hair get in my way of exercising.

My focus right now is on pampering and pushing forward! I'm sitting with a heat cap on my hair as I type! I havn't done this in YEARS! Actually my mom used to put the heat cap on me. I'm actually borrowing her cap LOL I sprayed my hair with some oils, aloe vera and water, then twisted my hair into corn rows...I'll wear a twist out later after I go for a Walk/Jog!

Wanting to Restart My Exercise, & I Feel Like A Run!!!

Saturday, February 05, 2011

I'm wanting to restart my exercising & feel like a run around the neighborhood or across the sands at the beach!
But truth is that I must start off slow so I'm trying to figure out what to do. And where to go...

Any ideas?

I'm thinking I will search through the SparkTeams or Spark articles to find a walking or walk to run plan for beginners. So I'll see where this Sat. lands me.

One of my reasons for not really getting into a hard workout is because I've been trying to keep my Press N Curl as long as I can emoticon But pontytail it shall be, and I hope it doesn't sweat back to where Sunday morning hair will be a mountain to climb lol

    Try walking briskly for a bit, maybe 10 minutes and then a very slow jog for 1's a great way to move into running and if that is what you want to do, then continue on---running for longer periods!

I said "goodbye" to the hair back in November, lol, emoticonwhen I jumped back into taking care of me first. My head sweats like crazy and I can't change that, just accept it must be washed every 2-3 days...I'd feel so much better with a "press n curl" but unfortunately succumbed to the chemical treatment (relaxer)...and am breaking off my ends using that darn flat iron...The other option is to leave in conditioner with a ponytail..No worries, health first emoticon

    Thanks! I didn't do any walking Sat., but Sunday I walked around the musuem for about 60min. and then downtown about 10 min.
On Tuesday and Wed. I did more walking with a little bit of jogging around the neighborhood and some aerobics at church Wed. night!

So I'm taking it slow. I think a good 30 minutes around the neighborhood on a regular basis does sound good.
Thanks for the suggestion and support!

My December 2010 PUSH!

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

My December 2010 PUSH!
I will try exercising everyday in December I started yesterday, Monday the 6th. And after the tightness in my body loosens up, I will feel better I'm sure! Why will it happen now as oppose to any other time? Well, I'm just thinking that its only 4 weeks and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! As long as I say & repeat & believe this everyday I should be okay! I would also like to lose some weight of course and I'm trying to catch up with my FFF45 GOAL. So weighing 190 by the end of the year would keep me on track for that goal and my breast surgery (I don't have to lose weight but I'd like to be smaller before the reduction).
Well, check back and see how I'm doing, if you like!

    Oh yes! Hi MrsJerryBush!

This dvd is part of the Body Gospel DVD kit. I really find it inspirational, even though I don't do it all the time. Below is a description from the Body Gospel Facebook page. Hope it helps!

Body Gospel is a faith-based fitness program that connects the user’s passion of their Christian values with his or her desire to lose weight. Featuring renowned inspirational fitness expert and creator of “Sweatin’ in the Sprit”, Donna Richardson-Joyner, Body Gospel was created to be a cross-training program that features authentic and inspiring gospel songs to take the drudgery out of exercise and make visible results accessible to everyone. Moving to songs like “Hallelujah Praise”, “Thank you Lord”, and “The Presence of the Lord” make pushing your body to burn fat and build muscle fun and easy. By conjuring the same feeling of empowerment and purpose that you feel each week at church and through your spiritual connection with Christ, Body Gospel will prove to be a unique faith-based fitness program more attractive than any other on the market.

Body Gospel is not all about the motivation of spirituality though! Donna’s secret to success includes a sophisticated approach to high-energy interval training. So, when combined with great gospel music and motivational messaging to unite your mind, body and spirit, Body Gospel becomes the ultimate in weight loss and body transformation results.

Redo My Home: The Thinking Stage

Monday, November 08, 2010

Okay, so it's really gotten to a point where I just need to start!
Start what? Start the process of my apartment redo!

I have tons of things in my home, in my carport storage and in a public storage building. All collected over the years! Of course I want to clean it all so that my home resembles a simplistic dwelling! But what do I throw away? What do I sell at the local swapmeet? What do I keep?
I just don't know what to do! And I want my place upgraded like the new tenants who have hardwood floors and new appliances...But they can't reinevate if I have THINGS in here! lol

And how long is it going to take to clear out my space? Aaauuugggghhhhh! This is my life now, well part of it anyway! Redoing my home...the thinking stage!

I can't wait until I get to the It's Done Stage!

    @LERORJL, Great job for putting them in the box!!!! Next step, drop it off or call them to pick it up!
I say write it down!
Write down what you have already put in the good will box.
Write down what else you would like to get rid of.
Then Write down the places you can take them. ie. Good Will, Consignment, Yard Sale, etc.
Begin checking it off! Or draw lines to where the different items will go.

Have a nice visual so that you can see how far you've come and where you have to go.

    Hi all thanks!

So I soooo appreciate all of the support, Goodie & tips from my sparkfriends!

Actually it is important to write it down and Plan! If I didn't then I would just be moving all around aimlessly without knowing where to go next. So I can't be like Nike & Just Do It, because it's not that simple for everyone. If so, there wouldn't be careers for people as Orginizers or shows like Hoarders.

So planning for me is not a word for procrastination. It is to actually put a timeline together, to find the consignment stores & write down which days I'll go to the Swapmeet to sell or see how feesable selling through Ebay and Craigs list will be...what direction I'm going with my home!

So where am I in this journey? Well, I have an appointment with my manager to put together a timeline for the improvments that I would like in my place. I have asked for assisance in dumping my couch and loce seat and I threw away a couple of bags of papers. Oh, and I have looked into Ebay...seems a bit overwhelming! LOL

So, next week (this week I'm out of town), I will check on Consignment Stores, think about if I have really used something in the last year and if I still need it, mark some things up once I make a list of donations (sell, etc.) AND remember that all the cleaning up is great exercise!
Thanks AGIAN SparkFriends! You all are great!

    It's Saturday and I'm just reading your blog from Monday and wondering if you started. I agree with the other Sparkies, no more planning, put them in sorted piles and take action with each pile.

Think of all the positives:
you'll get a great workout emoticon
you'll get the beautiful floors and appliances for your home that you deserve emoticon.
you'll feel a sense of accomplishment after you complete it emoticon

    What has worked for me is if I haven't used it in 6 months, it goes. If it is in good shape and can be used, I sell it. Just that simple. If you don't cut out the thinking stage you'll be thinking forever.

    Well, go through and mark the things you really love and would miss when gone. Rethink how you can use some of your items. Start to make bundles to sell, to donate and to put in consignment shops. I have found that consignment shops net me a return on items that are really good but I no longer have a use for them. I sold two small benches a chair and a mirror just this last month. They were just no longer right for me

Thanksgiving 2010 Mini Goal

Sunday, October 31, 2010

So Thanksgiving will be here in 3 weeks and I hope to weigh at least 199lbs
Yes, I'd be REAL thankful for that! lol
At this time I'm about 203-205 and can't seem to see 200 on my scale.

So, I hope that I can get down the pounds. So what do I plan to do to help out?
I plan on WALKING and moving everyday! Let's see how that works.

And as tired as I am right now, I will walk to church for the evening Anual Mission Service. I have 17 minutes before it begins. BOY I'm so sleepy. Okay Lord, give my strength!

I'll keep you all updated.

    November is a good month. This Friday is my 43 birthday and my goal this month is to learn to enjoy the holidays seperate from food. Most holidays, birthdays and such all rely on eating and I want to learn to enjoy the people, the day and activities. Also, I seem to struggle the last few months up 5 down 5. As soon as I lose the 5 and get towards my new goal I sabotage myself. So I plan to get down 10 over the month and get past this place in my head.
