smaller achievable target weight

Sunday, January 02, 2011

I've decided to make smaller goals. My target weight is to get down to 120lbs but I'm only going to work on the short term goal.
So, by doing that I've set up my target weight goal for March 1, 2011 and that will have me lose 16lbs that is 2 months away and probably achievable at the very least it will be I'll be close.

Weightloss=full time job

Monday, October 18, 2010

You would think that every day making healthy choices, exercising would be something easy. No one who has struggled with those choices and choosing to exercise probably never had the bad habits in the first place. LUCKY them. Granted they wouldn't be here then.

If I calculated the amount of time, I take reading labels, reading articles, tracking food, exercise and exercising itself, I wonder how much actual time I spend doing things to lose weight, it takes up part of you day. Yes granted a positive way, and time will decrease as time goes on. However it does take part of your day. You're out doing something and something comes up, you have to stop and think about what is the healthier choice to eat. Deciding to take the steps instead of the escalator or elevator. All this takes time (not that in some cases an elevator is faster) Looking up foods because making healthy choices isn't second nature yet. BTW if this was a real full time job I'D BE FIRED!

    It is a full time job. Maintaining is also a full time time job if not time and a half, lol. So worried about putting it back on is so stressful. I've put 3 lbs. back on and now I have to work on getting it back off. I hope to get back on track tomorrow after I've gone way over board this past weekend for my birthday. I know it's just an excuse, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. LOL. GOOD LUCK on your journey. I know you can do it.

The Weight around me

Poor Poor ME!!

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I hate being sick, I just don't do it very well. OK OK who the heck does. At least I'm not like some men who are whinny and want to be waited on.. Wouldn't that be nice if I could have that when I am sick. I actually can't believe that my allergies turned into a cold. HAHAHAHA I must be in dream land with that. I'm not surprised I'm just sad. THANK GOD for musinex and lots of liquids.
My nose is completely dried out, too much since I got a bloody nose today while driving home from jeerleading practice. I'm no longer coughing mucus but a dry cough so I will probably be dealing with this for a while. I cough more when I move or talk for a minute or two =( I go through this almost every year a big pain in the butt that is forsure!

I do know that this is something that too will pass and I will be just fine. It's really not poor poor me it just sucks to be me. Not asking for sympathy just encouragement to keep on exercising and not to give up while I have this wonderful cough that likes to stick around.

  Hey Everybody!

I am new to Spark and am so siked it is unbelievable. emoticon When it comes to a cold I consider water a cure all. It truly helps almost every ailment I have. I started out last week unable to sleep because of hacking and stuffy nose but I drink water in the middle of the night if I have to and flood my body during the day and now I am unstuffed and sleeping like a baby. emoticon

    @ardunna it is more or less now the cough I get and continues on now because of asthma. It's the same inside or outside. After the first real freeze it will be a lot better. Been through this more times then I would like to count.

I do yoga and strength training but in the end at this time of year, I just have to hold off and hope it doesn't last months.

Longest cough I've had, was May-November

    I completely feel your pain. I've been sick all week with a raw throat. I feel even whinier than normal emoticon. I've been trying to keep on track by drinking lots of herbal teas. They keep me on track food wise & help sooth the throat (plus the meds dry me out).

Do you cough more outside or inside? If more cough outside maybe strength training inside or yoga?

Hope you feel better soon!

    Hi Di
I hate being sick myself and I know all to well about the allergies. I'm having a hard time my self with them. The Mucinex D did nothing for me. It has in the past but this time around nothing. I got the post nasal drip going backwards, it doesn't come out through the nose, so it get in my chest and I suffer. My face, head and body aches. But I'm happy you are getting better. I have not been on the site so here I'am reaching out. for support and motivation. I'll be your cheerleader if you be mines and we will get to our goals.
Take care
