So Sunday is my Day 2 of Streaking!
Still sick but I knew I had to continue and not miss a day. Actually I think I was going to skip today, but I saw SP's facebook status and REALLY wanted to click the "like" button to say that I did 10+ minutes of fitness. So I closed my laptop, sat up a little bit on the couch, and started working my arms. I did a different move for each minute (I watched the clock change on the dvr LOL).
Anyhow, boy were my arms hurting!
10 minutes of arm exercises today.
Day 2 (April 17, 2011) 203 lbs
Sunday, April 17, 2011
Okay so I choose to start & look forward to the end...how many days will I be able to do???
What am I speaking of? Why SPARKGUY's recent blog/challenge of course!
I'm starting an experiment. I will try to do a 1,000-day streak of 10+ fitness minutes. I once did a 700-day streak that directly led to the creation of SparkPeople. Today is day 1 with a bike ride around the neighborhood. Hit like if you'll do at least some of the days with me! If enough people consistently do 10+ minutes most days (not the 1,000-day streak part), it will change the world!
More details to come...
So there you have it! How many days will I do, I don't know. But I do know that if I get through 2 days, 5 days, 7 days, a month...hey I'm on my way!
Well, as some of you know I've been down with a cold or virus of some sort for a few days now. But yesterday, I couldn't resist and I vacuumed my place, cleaned out my fan and one of my windows...I couldn't help it! lol
So I will say that I had 15-30 minutes of housework on yesterday
Day 1 (April 16, 2011) 203 lbs.
Some may say that's not fitness...but let me tell you, if you could have seen the sweat pouring from my body, you'd change that notion! LOL
I'm still not at my best, but will try to piece together 10 minutes of some form of exercise for today & while I'm sick.
All the best to anyone else who's joining SparkGuy on this journey. For I'm excited that I will be in the race...10 minutes...just 10 minutes every day is an awesome thing to set my mind to.
I'll try to keep you updated. Will you try to do at least 10 minutes daily as well?

This is my new SparkPage Info. You know me, I like to do a blog, so whenever I change it, I can always have something to look back at! Oh but I did add a few more sentences here. Maybe I'll go back and add it to my page...I'll see!

MY destiny is set. One of God's promises & blessings. One of health, prosperity, grace, love, favor & more of His greatness!
How do/will I move forward? How do/will I run the race the right way for me? What do I need to do?
Diet this, Exercise that, everyone on SP is in the healthy race! I believe that as long as we are on this earth, we can learn & improve. But in reality, we all choose the depth & length of our growth & how hard we want to go at it! Just remember that each person's course will look a lil different, so don't try to be EXACTLY like the next person. It's okay to have a motivator or something/someone for an inspiration. But again, remember...We don't all run or walk the same, we're not the same height, weight...we don't have the same challenges or advantages...
So just do you boo, in a healthy way!!!
Yesterday I read a lesson in a book which included the 2 bible passages below. One of the things that stood out for me was that I need to TURN/Break, SET the journey/Advance, & GO! And that i must Make My Body My Slave, Instead of Being a Slave To My Body! Yes, my health is in need of a REVIVAL! Sometimes these things take a lil more time than we think it ought! lol :o)
the habit of not believing in myself & the ability that's still within me. From my idle times & giving in to not feeling well. Take time to Rest, it's OK & know that I'm getting better so look ahead & not behind!
to all that I am capable of. For I Really Can Do All Things Through Christ That Gives Me Strength! BELIEVE IT! EVERY DAY!
just do it! Exercise like there's no tomorrow...well, actually, like there is a tomorrow! :o) Knowing that all things that work for others may not work for me. And that's okay! Go forth & Let God Be My Guide! My Personal Trainer & Dietian!
"The Command to Leave Horeb" - Deuteronomy 1:6-7
6 The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. 7 BREAK camp (turn) and ADVANCE (set your journey) into the hill country of the Amorites; GO to all the neighboring peoples in the Arabah, in the mountains, in the western foothills, in the Negev and along the coast...
"The Need for Self-Discipline" - 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

So I've been reading some SP blogs addressing the HCG "diet". And to my surprise a lot of SP members can be pretty mean and downright uninformed. Spreading LIES & "Sound Goods" for the sake of HEALTH. So anywho, I decided to respond to one of the message boards when I saw that there were more people giving negative feedback to a woman who asked a simple question about the diet. BLEW MY MIND! So this is what I wrote:
WOW so many people who want to bash a particular protocol. It's amazing!
I am not on this diet, however I have looked into it for several reasons...and no it's not because I want a quick weight loss or I don't want to go to the gym.
I have several medical issues which lead to a significant weight gain (within about 5 months - over 70lbs), not because of overeating. They include but are not limited to Cancer, Hypothyrodism, Perimenopause, Congestive Heart Failure, Cardiomyopathy...there's more but I'll stop here.
So for me as a young woman, getting pregnant isn't the easiest and neither is losing weight on a healthy "SP" diet. So this would be an option and has been discussed with my Oncologist. And NO she's not pushing it on me for money.
Again, it trips me out how some people jump on a bashing bandwagon without COMPLETE knowledge. I could say more but I'll stop. Because those who want to bash or discourage will & those who want to believe will. I just hope that in the mist of it all, people will remember to be friendly SP members who are respectful and understanding as oppose to just mean and "know it alls". Because every situation is slightly different. We can't all eat and exercise the same way and get the same results...and that's a fact!
Enjoy your journey of health, Be Healthy & Take Care!
