I'm going to F.L.Y. again!

Monday, May 19, 2008

Oh so what does FLY stand for "Finally Loving Yourself"!
I joined FlyLady some time last year, but didn't get past the 1st week. I recently joined two of the Flylady teams on SP. I'm hoping that this will help me get some things in order in my life other than just my body.

So I'm going to try to be a FLY baby and start a lil today. It's already evening time now and my sink is full of dishes on both sides. But I'll try to shine my sink tonight. I don't know if I'll get to the Zone stuff, but maybe I'll try to tackle under my bed...or the side of it tonight for 15 minutes. Even if I have to break it up! Or maybe I'll just do it tomorrow. They say to take baby steps so that I don't get overwhelmed, mush let SP does.

Extra Note: The bootcamp is going okay... but I'm sure that I'll have 500 minutes by the end of the month. For me, that's REALLY GREAT!

    Hi, I joined Flybaby for awhile but had too many emails coming. That was before I started Spark and the flood of emails that SP brings. I must say that I would NOT WANT YOU TO SEE MY KITCHEN SINK TODAY!

    Hello My Sister,

I've also been a FLY baby for a few years! The sink stays cleaned out even during the day with children. Now, everything else will come. But, I do like that I can do anything in just 15 minutes.

Keep on Flying!

    I too am a fly Baby. Off and on. I have mostly kept the sink shined and some of my hot spots down to a slow burn. But I have struggled with zones.
I wish you the best of luck. Remember baby step!!!

Day 1 Review: Official Swimsuit Bootcamp (SPOSB) May 4, 2008

Monday, May 05, 2008

Church was great as I mentioned. As far as the first video, I had to stop several times. Yes I know it's only 10 minutes, but I'm still de-conditioned from 2 surgeries and 6 weeks of being in the hospital.

So hopefully by the time I get to the end of the month I'll have increased my strength. I put together some music to workout to. And I weighed myself today (169.4lbs, 42.8% body fat and 40.7% body water. I'll go ahead and print out a new tape measure and put that up too.

I hope to do Day 2 video and 30 of FitTV cardio for today. We'll see tomorrow how that goes. I also need to do some cleaning so I might just use that as my 30 minute cardio...I'll see, there's still 8 hours left in the day!!!

Music (played @ random) for Video Day 1:
1) I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time - Mariah Carey
2) Touch My Body - Mariah Carey
3) Chasing Forever - Will Smith
4) Jesus - Kirk Franklin
5) Love Is Wicked - Brick & Lace
6) Upgrade U (feat. Jay-Z) - Beyonce
7) I Like Me - Kirk Franklin
8) Get Be Bodied - Beyonce
9) U and Me - Brick & Lace
10) LUV - Janet Jackson
11) Higher Ground - Karen Clark Sheard
12) I've Been Changed - Karen Clark Sheard

Oh and I still did to do a before picture! But I did accomplish the optional for day 1 by posting a blog and changing a few things on my page...I'll continue to do more though...and I've done my fruit for day 2 (optional challenge), but I'll discuss that more in Day 2's Review tomorrow!!!

    WEll I'm a bit behind. It started before I went out of town to visit my parents for mother's day! Wasn't felling so well. So anyway I saw that you just need to complete at least 500 minutes of exercise...I can do that...I think!

Well, let's see how week 2 goes!

Repositioning Myself & Starting SPS Bootcamp!

Sunday, May 04, 2008

Someone on the Swimsuit Bootcamp Team posted the question: Bootcamp Goals? Well, here's my answer:

"My goal is to keep up with the daily workout schedule. I just want to focus on that. I will try to do the optional challenges.

But as far as other goal...I'll just be happy with what comes from keeping up with the Workout Plan!"

So in preparation for that, I looked at the video yesterday...well, maybe half of it. And I'll do it sometime tonight! I also looked for my tape measurer but havn't found it, and I don't really want to print another one out...but, maybe I'll have to. This way I can see if I loose inches. I didn't weigh myself before eating 2 eggs and 2 mushrooms for breakfast, so I'll have to go with a 1 day in weight .

I'll put all of my stats up later. Maybe I'll do both the beginning and ending stats on the same Blog.

Okay, well that's enough for me right now. I'll be back again.

Oh I had a great time at church today and I also watched a good deal of TD Jake's Reposition Yourself DVD this morning too...everything is always in line when we look toward Christ. Let me just say that I can feel a move coming on into the right direction!

The Day Before my May Challenges (FitTV & Swimsuit Bootcamp)

Saturday, May 03, 2008

Coming out of the shade...
So I'm looking to motivate myself back into moving a lil bit every day. Trying to lose the pounds before going to Puerto Rico is not happening, since that's only 18 days away! I'm okay with not losing the pounds right now. So one thing I'll focus on is to just keep moving in May! Not how many pounds I can get rid of. And let me say that this will be a challenge because my body is not being so pain free friendsly lately!

So, what does this all mean? Well, I will try to move everyday in the month of May! Something that should help me do this are the 2 challenges that I will focus on: FitTV Team & SP's Official Swimsuit Bootcamp Team.

I hope to keep track of this month's journey in my blogs as much as possible. I'm excited!!! I need to be, it's one of the only things keeping me on track to getting and staying healthy! And let me say that I'm not always on the track, but I'm heading in the right direction.

Lots of changes happening in my life so I'll see where God is leading me. The challenges start Sunday the 4th & Monday the 5th. An optional day 1 challenge is
"to update your SparkPage or Blog with your starting stats--with "before" pics, your goals for the month, what you hope to accomplish, or other measurements. This way, when you complete the Bootcamp you'll have visual (or similar) proof of where you started and the progress you've made. "
So I'll see how that goes. I'll start a bit today, just to keep me going.

Enjoy your first workout!

    Thanks for blogging. I see that you have signed up for two May challenges.

I too have joined a challenge but mine starts on May 11th. I've joined the Women's Health Challenge that is put on through the US Government. I joined through my Walking with Leslie Sansone SP Team. This challenge goes from May 11th through the end of July (I think) and we as a team are supposed to virtually walk across America!

Have a good day.

My Tummy Hurts

Friday, April 04, 2008

I just finished eating some Basmati riceall dolled up and a baked chicken breast from my belly hurts real bad :o(

I'm going to lay down now (so I can feel good enough to wash some clothes and make some spaghetti for my BF).

I just wanted to write it down so I can remember that it wasn't a good combo. :oP
