Challenge

Friday, January 09, 2009

I began 2008 wanting to lose weight among other things. I found SP and initially began using the site primarily because of the consolidated tools available. It has provided so much more! I pulled together all the info I had compiled pulling it into the trackers etc, joined teams and participated on challenges and by the end of 2008, I had gone from 159 lbs to 139 lbs. == definitely not on the schedule set where I would have reached 125 lbs by Nov 2008 but I had lost 20 lbs. and happy with the results. The challenge became if I wanted to go any further. My last consistent weight was 125 and that's where I thought I should go back to ...but I am no stranger to 140 which was my previous consistent weight before I was 125.

The goal for the last week of Dec and 1st week of Jan was to decide if I wanted to move my goal. While the weight is gone, I noticed that I need to build muscle mass. I have not put on as much muscle mass as I thought I would have by now.

The challenge now is selecting the exercises that will maximize my efforts to build muscle and modify the amount of aerobics and have become comfortable with. In a way, it is almost ironic because muscle will add weight and move me back up the scale but I want to see definition not just a reduction.

The game is afoot...and I plan to achieve my goals.

  


Cheers!

Thursday, January 08, 2009

It's been a silly kind of day so far and this song started in my head...It's the theme song from CHEERS!

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
your name.

Silly day, but good! Onward and upwards! emoticon
