My Mom's Birthday Today Marks DAY 1 Of My Newest Goal :o)

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Today's my mother's birthday & I'm so blessed to have such a WONDERFUL mommy!
It is also the homegoing celebration of one of my 1st cousins. She passed away on Tuesday at age 59 & so today my mom spent the day in mourning with family & friends but I hope that she's counting it all joy, a gift to celebrate her niece's life, so she can also enjoy this day that marks her birth!

As for me, as I morn I also count it all joy and have marked my mom's Birthday today, December 17, 2011, as DAY 1 emoticon of my newest goal, which will end on my Birthday, July 26, 2012...that'll be 7 months from now!

Of course we all want to be healthier, maybe lose weight, eat better, and be stronger in our bodies and souls...well, at least that's what I want! In reality some of you may just want to maintain what you've accomplished, gain healthy weight, or finish other life goals!

So today, I've exercised to one of my dvd's (not the whole thing but I'm happy with what I've done)! I ate breakfast! Had a snack! Ate a sensable Lunch! Been drinking tons of H20! Took my medicine! Went outside!
HEY I'm just keeping it simple and being thrilled with what I have accomplished as I go along!

Well, although I'mstill working on exactly what I hope to see in July of next year...I do want to get down to a good weight, which I recorded on SP & I want to be able to exercise pain free with flexability. But again, I'm keeping it simple. So I deleted the long list of SparkGoals and will focus on 1 or 2 at a time. Details to follow!

Well, all the best to everyone and I'm off! PRESSING TOWARD THE GOAL!
Much Love!

    Oh, as a LEO, you certainly are a person who wants to make an inpression when you enter a room, as you want to be the center of attention, so being "in shape" and looking your best is vital to you, but you do have the determination and drive to get what you want.
LEO has a 'big heart' when it comes to wanting to care for others, but she also has to watch for Heart Disease and Back issues. For those reasons you don't want to be fat. The "Lioness" is the hunter and she takes charge, but if you notice, as Lioness is always full of muscles and she's lean. She has to be fast and able to run. She always wants to win.

I'm sorry about your cousin who is 59. That is much to young to die, but since this is the only life we get, we have to make the most of each day. I know between now and July 26th, you will use each day. emoticon

    #1) Logging in my nutrition and exercise on time! Those weeks where I kept track and didn't wait 2-3 days to "catch up" proved to be the best weight-loss weeks for me!

#2) Pull up my first ever sweet potatoes before the frost----healthy pies and souffles, here I come!

Thanks for the reminder emoticon emoticon

Getting back on a fit track & oh yeah I have to finish cleaning too!

Monday, August 22, 2011

Getting back on a fit track & oh yeah I have to finish cleaning too!

Okay, so HOW do you get yourself back on track when you had a hard time staying on to begin with? How do I go from the thoughts in my head of living, eating and working healthier to actually doing it more regularly?

Hmmmmmmmmm I feel like it's a new week to do more workouts and eat healthier, and then I also have my entire house to empty out for remodel work happening in 2 weeks... emoticon Okay, well, it'll all come together I has to, soon...real soon!

But you know me, I'm positive and also accept suggestions and positive encouragement and inspiration too!

    Hi Lady!
I'm with you on kick starting a plan...perhaps we can focus together on September! Think about the main things you'd like to do, and share them with me. I'll do the same. Let me know what you think! We can do this!!!

Hello Sis! What I did to get back on track was pray and let God know that I Really Need His Help. I can't do this alone. I fail when I try too. Let it Go and don't take it back because it can become a "care" That we must cast on Him. One day at a time and one step at a time. I'm seeing progress and I have like 35 more pounds to lose from start @ 88. God is SO AMAZING. You'll get it done when it gets done. Just know that YOU ARE ALREADY A WINNER KEEP SEEING THAT NEW YOU INSIDE AND OUT!
Love you and Thanks for all you do!
Many Blessings!

Bye Bye 200's By Summer's End!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

WOW it's been quite some time since I last wrote.
Many things have been happening in my life. But I'll just comment on my weight loss...lbs and food and exercise. So here's the summary:

So I've lost and gained. Never reaching my highest of 227 again, but never getting below 200 lbs.
I'm stronger, I've been able to lift more, endure longer hours and walk a lot further than I had in such a long time.
And today I say emoticon to not losing the pounds. emoticon to the 200's we've been together too long!
emoticon 100's again. I really pray that by summer's end I WILL SEE the 100's again! Hey I'll be happy with being 199 for longer than a day!
So hopefully I will be able to have success. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Oh and my Oncologist is tweeking some of my meds so hopefully this will help too.

Okie-dokie, follow God's lead! All the best to everyone!

    Read SCOTT RIGDEN, M.D.'s "The Ultimate Metabolism Diet" (I got a copy at the library. It explains being over 40 and having Insulin Resistance/Metabolic Syndrome. When we eat, our pancreas pumps out TOO MUCH insulin (unlike Diabetes) and so we STORE as fat the food that comes in and then our brain thinks we haven't eaten so it tells the stomach to pump out LEPTIN the hunger hormone. So, it is no wonder we are always hungry even though we want to lose. His book explains a lot.

    You ARE going to reach your goal of below 200...I just know it. You're doing a great job and it sounds like will move even further ahead, one day at a time. I hope you enjoy your accomplishments each day and remember that your SparkFriends are out here rooting for you!!! (SparkFriends like me.) You are worth experiencing the best health possible. Believe it.
