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!

I just finished eating some Basmati riceall dolled up and a baked chicken breast from Albertson...now 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

Well, my midnight hour was not so good emotionally. But as I listened to a few Mary J songs I think that I just need to focus solely on me. It's a hard thing when I mostly put others before me. It seems a bit selfish...but sometimes the people you're thinking about and are concerned with, are not so concerned with you.
So it seems that at this time what's best for my health is maybe to just keep God first and me second and then when I get to everyone else that'll be just fine...
I don't know, just frustrated at this late night hour and feeling like emotions are tossing me back and forth. *(I'm also in the middle/end of my menstral cycle, so my hormones might be a bit more sensative at this time.)
Maybe I'll feel better in the morning or my the afternoon...I have my Well-Fit class @2 so perhaps the gym will help me feel better.
KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYER PLEASE, THX

Okay, so it's 2 months post 2 operations and I've been walking more (wheelchair less) and doing some Zumba movement. YEA, but I've noticed one thing...my weight keeps going up! I mean, I got down to 160 and was holding it down, sometimes up to 162, but holding the pounds down still! And the last few times I checked the scale it was so high that I refused to record it. Well, today I decided to record it, are you ready...
My weight is back up to a whomping 169.3 lbs. Before I can take another breath I'll be in the 170's then the 180's and then back to the 190's, which is close to the 200's that I've never seen, but the thought of made me want to work on getting the pounds down.
I can say that my body fat is going down, this morning it was at 39.3%, which is good for me, since I stayed in the mid 40's and my body water is up to 43.2%. Okay so that's good...but still...geez I'm trying to LOOSE the weight not gain it like some might.
And you know, I just feel myself getting fatter and then I want to eat more...I even made some Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownies last night... and it's been awhile since I'd done that. They didn't turn out like they usually do though. I put in a little too much water, so they're a bit cake like. Well, I guess I was thinking about the water I should have been drinking instead of adding to my brownies that I didn't need to begin with. I still had a small piece for breakfast though (for shame)... I tell ya, all this exercise is giving me a sweet tooth!
I know I should look at this as set backs happen, move forward, and maybe even check my measurements. But it took me a good week or so before I could even change my ticker to go backwards. For all to see that I was back up again.
So, okay, I really needed to get that out. I do hope that once I start my 10 week Well-Fit Program w/the Cancer Center & the local Athletic Club, next Monday that I can get my pounds to come down and get me to my goals. But I didn't lose the last time I did the program, I'm telling myself. However, I'm at a different place now (& have SP's support) & I don't have those 21 nasty fibroids inside me, so maybe things will work out this time! Because at this rate, I won't be meeting any of my "lose weight by the special date" goals.
*Reminder "Lose weight by the special date goals":
1) Get into my pink & cream dress suit for my boyfriend's b-day (April 13th).
2) Weigh 155 lbs (& stay there or less) by the time I travel to my niece's H.S. graduation in Puerto Rico (May 23rd).
3) Get down to 130-140 lbs by my b-day (July 26th) & wear a bikini to the beach.
I don't know, I might need to change my goals up because they are looking pretty impossible right now....
