My New Kicks!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Today is day 11 of my current streak!

I finally decided it was time to reward myself for my progress! After all, I've been working out and eating right since last March, and I've only gotten off track twice in all that time. So I think I deserved a reward! Besides, I really needed a new pair of shoes. My old Reeboks were totally worn out. We've been saving change in a coffee can, so this morning I took the can to CoinStar and cashed those coins in....there was almost $100 in change!

So with cash in hand, I headed to the shoe store. First I went to a big old shoe warehouse, figuring that since they'd have the biggest selection, I would definitely find some shoes that I like. But out of all those hundreds of shoes they had, there was not one pair that appealed to me! There were some that I liked "okay", but since this was meant to be a reward, I just did not want to settle for "okay."

Luckily at the next 2 stores I found shoes that I liked... and they were on sale! Plus, by applying for a store credit card, I got $20 off my purchase. (And I plan to cut up that store credit card when it arrives, lol.) I ended up getting two pairs of shoes for $75. I LOVE them! What do you think?



In the picture, I'm laying on the floor with my feet up on the sofa to show off my new shoes. The pink ones are Nike's. They are running shoes, and although I don't run, I just loved the bright colors. In the past, I would buy the plainest shoes possible, so they would be practical and not stand out. But I didn't want to get practical shoes today.So pink shoes for me! The teal shoes with the roses are for just bumming around in, and they are my favorite color. Plus, I love roses, so as soon as I saw those shoes I just knew I had to get them.

    New shoes always make me happy! I get frustrated shopping for anything else, because no matter what it always seems like I'm in between sizes and can't find things to fit right. Shoes, on the other hand, almost always fit... and it makes me happy. I like your choice, too. Nike is my favorite brand, and I'm currently sporting a gray and pink pair of Shox, myself. GO PINK! lol

The Happiest Loser

Monday, January 07, 2013




Today is day 10 of my current streak!

I've given myself a challenge....to workout during commercial breaks of The Biggest Loser! Great way to get a little extra fitness in, huh? I will be doing step ups on my step bench, wall sits, dumbbell curls, squats and whatever else I happen to be in the mood for. The show's season just started last night, so I have a lot of commercial break workouts ahead of me!

You know, I've watched almost every season of the Biggest Loser, and although the show really motivated me, I didn't actually APPLY that motivation. I would sit and watch the show while chowing down on junk food! I would stuff my face and think "I wish I could go on that show", or "I'm going to start getting in shape...tomorrow!"

But the days went by.....the weeks and months and even years went by....and I did nothing to improve my life and health. I was just wishing my life away, instead of actually getting up off my butt and working to make my wishes come true. Each season of the Biggest Loser would come and go, and the only change I made in my life was that I just got heavier and more out of shape.



Well, things are so different now! I no longer sit around stuffing my face and wishing for weight loss and good health. Last March, I started taking control....I began working on a brand new, healthy lifestyle. I eat right and I exercise. I've completely eliminated junk food from my diet (and I rarely eat any processed foods). I move more and sit less.



Last night as I was doing my commercial break exercises, I actually started to cry. They were tears of gratitude and happiness and relief! I'm not the same person I was this time last year. I am healthier, fitter and 71 pounds lighter! I don't need to be on the Biggest Loser, because I'm finally taking control of my life, my health and my weight. I'm no longer a prisoner of my own obesity, trapped in an unhealthy body, unable to move freely and without pain. I'm a new person now, one who loves to workout, one who craves healthy food, one who thanks God every day for helping me to keep pushing forward towards my goals.

I'm still far from where I want to ultimately end up, but I'm also far away from who I used to be! I can't help but think ahead, to where I could be this time next year, watching the Biggest Loser. It amazes me to think that I will be at my goal size by then, as long as I keep on working hard and never give up!

I might not be the Biggest Loser....but I think I'm the happiest one!

Doing exercises during commercial breaks, for me, is so exciting and fun! Instead of keep flipping for other channels while waiting for the show to continue, doing as much exercises as I can is like racing against time, which make it challenging :D

    I have a photo of things to do during the show...like when bob talks about feelings, do this and when there is a product promoted, do that....etc. I'll send it to you somehow if you want me to (need email or Facebook) and it's pretty good! :)
You should have somebody else who watches the show with you write your commercial break plan, or pop strips of paper into a jar with different exercises and you have to pick so you're surprised :)
I actually reward myself with watching it. I do my workout and then I can watch it! I have to buy them from itunes since I live in NZ and they are WAY behind...so it's a treat to be able to have them....thanks to my family in the states :) WHOO HOO!!!
Have a Biggest Loser Bustin' Your Best Workouts in the new year!
:) SOOOOO excited for you that you're doing whatever it takes to make it happen!

A Goal to Reach by Spring

Sunday, January 06, 2013




Today is day 9 of my streak!

I've decided to give myself a new mini goal! The first day of Spring (my favorite season) is 72 days away, so I'm choosing a goal that I want to reach by that time. I have a really cute Curves t shirt that is a size L, which is the size I wear now in t shirts. But this shirt seems to run small. I can get it on but its way too tight. So my goal is for it to fit me perfectly by the first day of Spring!



I actually won this shirt in a drawing back in 2008, when I was still a member of Curves, and I've never been able to wear it. Its just been hanging in the spare bedroom all this time, but I am determined to fit into it by the first day of Spring...even though I no longer go to Curves.
emoticon

In order to reach this goal, I am going to keep doing what I've been doing...eating between 1200 and 1500 calories a day....REAL food, eliminating processed food as much as possible....and getting at least an hour of exercise a day. I've been doing Wii Zumba every morning and I'm getting a little better although I still look absolutely ridiculous, lol. In the afternoon, I do my strength training with My Fitness Coach for Wii, and in the evening I do DDP Yoga. I will also workout during TV commercials while watching the Biggest Loser this season! I have my aerobic step and I will do step ups during every commercial break. So wish me luck on fitting into that shirt by the first day of Spring!



Oh, a few days ago I blogged about my NSV's (non-scale victories) of 2012, but I forgot some so I will add them here.

I don't have to sit down to put my pants on. That might not seem like a big deal, but it is to me! I can put my pants on while standing up!

My purse strap fits over my shoulder now...even with my winter coat on!

When I sit on the couch, the cushions don't sink way down anymore. It feels like I'm sitting ON the couch now, not IN the couch. And I can get up from the couch easily, without having to hoist myself up.

I can get down on the floor for my workouts, and get back up again without having to pull myself up on the furniture.

I can easily reach to trim my toenails. (I used to have to do all kinds of straining and contortions to do that.)

The sides of the lawn chair don't squeeze my hips anymore.

I need to get smaller bras! Yes, thats a non-scale victory too!

Okay...there are 72 days until Spring! What goal would you like to reach by then?

    Since it is now Feb 19th, I have exactly 4 weeks before the first day of Spring. My new mini goal is to lose 5 lbs between now and then. I currently work out 3 days a week on a regular basis, so I will have to increase that to working out 4-5 days per week. Then I really need to watch the foods that I eat. I will try to stay away from as many processed foods as possible.

Please wish me luck!!! emoticon

I think its a Valentines one I should hunt for it and hang it on my closet door along with a pair of jeans I like but are way too snug and I cant zip up. Maybe this will keep me motivated and I can try them on every so often just to see how far I've come :)

    Loved the blog. Loved what you have accomplished. Made me think . I used to not be able to tie my shoes , I had to get my granddaughter to buckle my sandals and toe nails took forever. I often thought of my mother , I had to do this for her. Then she got sick and lost weight,then she was still unable because of illness. I found myself saying I know how my mother felt. I promised her before she died that I would do something about my weight here I am. Carrying around 50 extra pounds is hard , and I have lost 10 and it makes a differences . I look at your victories and I count mine. The small ones adds up. Thank you. That is the way we should count it. Keep going I know you will make your goal. emoticon emoticon

My NSV for today!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013




Today is day 5 of my current streak!

I just had a great NSV and I had to share it! It just happened and I'm still so psyched.

I've been working out and eating healthy foods since last March. I workout every day and I love it. I do cardio, strength and yoga. (Yoga is my favorite. I don't like cardio, but I do it anyway!)



Since last March, I've really changed my body. I've lost 71 lbs, and I've gotten stronger and more flexible. I've built muscle. Beneath the layers of fat that I'm still working hard to burn, I can feel the muscles and firmness.

Yes, I can FEEL the muscles, but I can't SEE them. There is just too much fat covering them, but I'm not discouraged by that. I know that if I keep working hard...doing that dreaded cardio and building muscles through strength training....I WILL burn that fat away and reveal the muscles beneath.

Well, just a little while ago, I was in the kitchen making a cup of tea. I'm wearing my "warrior gear" (as I call my workout clothes)....shorts, t shirt and a bandana. Hubby came in and said "Wow, look at your legs!"

I said "What about them?" and he said "I can see your calf muscles!" Well, I immediately had to go look at myself in the full length mirror, and he is right! My calf muscles are visible!



Finally, after almost a year of working out, I have muscles that I can see, not just feel! I still have enormous upper arms, and a bit of a Santa Claus belly, but my calf muscles show...and that motivates me to keep working hard, because I know that eventually those stomach muscles and arm muscles will make an appearance too!

And that is my NSV for today!

I can relate to your horror of the "F" word, and I can only say that I admire your strength at being able to forgive your hubby for using it. I don't know either of you, but just from what you've said in the blog post, he knows you well enough to be aware of the impact of his words (at least after the fact). I believe that we're like animals in that we lash out at people when we are threatened/insecure with whatever comes to hand.

This post really touched me, and I'm just so darned happy to read how you weathered this with stength and style! emoticon

    My sister in law from Portland was visiting. I was in my work out pants that hit just below the knee, and are fairly close-fitting. She said, "Wow, you have runner's legs!" Well, given that I had gained 33 pounds and was feeling really low about myself, this was a welcome compliment. It reminded me that I only gained 33, not 93, and that I am going to get back to where I was in August. That I'm not gross again. Sometimes it's the little things. Congratulations! Savor it!

2012 was my last fat year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today is day 4 of my newest "on track" streak!

On one of the teams I co-lead, Progress Not Perfection, I've posted a new challenge. Its for NSV's, and trying not to be too focused on the scale...to actually avoid weighing in for as long as possible. Thats an easy challenge for me...my last weigh in was on September 3rd, and I like it that way! I find that I do a lot better and have an easier time of staying on track when I don't have the scale to worry about. If figure that as long as I eat right and exercise, I will make progress. And I see progress all the time, in the way my clothes fit, in my strength, and in so many other ways.

I know that going "scale free" isn't for everyone. Some people NEED to weigh in more often, in order to keep themselves on track. What works for me might not work for you, and vice versa.



On another team I co-lead, Rootin' for Ruby, we're getting ready to have our annual Fresh Start challenge. It starts tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. This challenge is about support and refreshing all the good, healthy habits that we need to have in order to reach our goals.

This morning when I woke up, I was so psyched for a new year! This is the year that I am going to reach my goal! And 2012 was my last fat year! I didn't get started until March first, but once I got started I made great progress! I went from wearing size 3X t shirts to size L. I went from being a sedentary junk food junkie to a healthy, active vegetarian! I discovered yoga and I love it!



When I think back to where I was and who I was at this time last year, it amazes me. I am so completely different now. When I posted my new profile picture a couple of days ago, a lot of the comments I got were "You look so happy." And I truly AM happy, for the first time in years. When I look at my progress pictures, the main thing I see is not the change in my body, but the change in my face. There is happiness there, and it shows. My life is not perfect. We can barely pay the bills, my hubby is out of work, and there are other stresses. I can't control those things, but I can control me. I can do something every day to make progress. Even small progress is worth celebrating.




I am healthy, and I am on my way to my goal. It is possible that I can be at my goal size by summer, and that is so exciting. I am still fat on the outside, but on the inside I am healthy, fit and strong. And I know that if I keep working hard, the outside will catch up to the changes that have already happened inside.

2013 is going to be awesome, because I'm going to make it awesome!

If I can get all that under control and start being able to buy the right kind of food on a regular basis, I know I can succeed. Good luck to you.

While I no longer weigh myself every week like I did for so long, I do use it occasionally, for now. These days, I only weigh myself once a month but once I reach my goal, I plan to give up the scale. Wish me luck.

Keep up the good work - you're an inspiration.
