JM Challenge 10 - Prepping for the HBCU Walk/Run

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Today is registration day!!!

25 days to prepare. The holiday is behind us...which I tracked and stayed within my calories all weekend anyway!! I plan to do JM for strength training, but I have to get out on the TRACK!!! I've been doing the treadmill because of my allergies and the HEAT in GA!! I am originally from the NORTH and the one thing I still don't like is the GEORGIA SUMMERS emoticon emoticon.

Anyhow, this evening, I'll hit the track, popping my 2 Zyrtec now!!

The LUPUS walk was great. I'm expecting even better this go round!!

Happy Tuesday!

    I am with you on the Georgia summers Soror. I have lived here for almost four years and still can't stand the humidity emoticon. It is draining to say the least.

Yesterday I went running on the track and the humidity had my heart rate up sky high. I could only do half of my training runs because I couldn't breathe...UGH! The sad part is that we are only in JUNE emoticon

    Congrats on your walk. I know what you are saying about the summers--I moved to Nashville from Idaho thirteen years ago and I still can't get used to walking out the front door and getting hit with the heat ;)

JM Challenge - Day 8 & 9 ~~~ Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Monday, May 30, 2011

I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Memorial Day!! I know I am...and I'm really not doing much!! My son graduated from the 6th grade on Friday(I love him sooo much)!!! I went to the Carribean Festival Saturday and church Sunday!!! NOT MUCH TO SCREAM ABOUT!! But I am tracking my meals again. I think I skipped two days...anyway that's behind me!!!

As my "SP GOAlS" indicate...I have teamed up with Beautyful-1 and Journey2lovinme...we have our ACTION PLANS locked and loaded. We have our EYES on the prize. I am looking forward to the finish line, but determined to enjoy the journey, because LIFE is really all about the JOURNEY anyway!!!

Wii Fit - Just Dance
C25k - 31 minutes...

A special thanks to our armed forces, to those who faithfully serve our country, by placing themselves in harms way for me and my family (it's personal)!!!!

Be blessed SP FAM!!!

    I am so excited to be back on track. I hate when stress consumes me. Depression is definitely a ploy of the enemy. I realize Grace enables me to make it, no matter what. No matter who turns against me, no matter what obstacles I face, no matter how many times I fail. God's incredible grace is there to pick me up, to revive lost hope, heal my broken heart, and strengthen my weak will. Thank Goodness, grace has no expiration date.

My action plan was derailed for a few days, but I back in the game. 30 Day Shred will be my primary workout but I do plan to do other things. But I must take care of business every day. I will continue my blogs for the next 30 days but may do different exercises.

Be Blessed Lynn!

JM Challenge - Day 7 & The upcoming lay-offs...

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Not feeling like exercising today. All the stress from the pending layoff (not because I am STRESSED about my fate) is doing a number on me from a motiviational standpoint. I know that GOD is my source, that company is just a resource. So if my season is up...when God closes a WINDOW he opens a DOOR!!! You can look at the glass as half empty or half full!! 1/2 full glass for me please...LOL

I guess it's just the atmosphere that's draining...The moral SUCKS, people are either gossiping about who they think will be laid off or trying to throw people under the bus (as if that's going to save your job)!! I am oversleeping every morning, I mean every morning, even though I am in bed by 10 or 10:30 and that's early for me!! Oh well...It's slated to happen next week and when the dust settles...however it settles~~ hopely I will get my motivation and WOOO-HAAA back!!

As my friend Dance would say ONTOTHENEXTONE!!!

I am sleepy...going to bed!!!

    Stay positive and know that if God is for ya, who can be against ya?
This too shall pass! He will provide and you shall be on top even if it means change. Not joining in the gossip and seeing the glass half full is you best bet.

Praying for your situation...

    So sorry to hear about the layoffs at your work. My company has been going through layoffs since Feb--we've had 3 so far this year. I know it's stressful--even if you are still with a job after the layoffs.

Praying for you. You have a good attitude about it. Try and hold onto that.

    sorry to hear about the job just went through that last year and it sucked for me because I'm in Human Resources so I had to actually be in the meetings with the laid off people (some of them my friendds). Stay prayed up sweetie!!! emoticon
