I had a great tasting smoothie for lunch as my lunch out treat. emoticon
It was nice weather today which means continue to the skate park. emoticon
I finally am getting my crossovers down. emoticon + emoticon
Instructor said that I have improved. emoticon
I'm gaining speed as well as balance. emoticon
Then ended the night watching a new South Park episode. emoticon
What a way to end humpday!

There are no roller skate emoticons so I had to improvise.

But, seriously, who do we have to petition on this site to get a pair of quads added?

Hello October 2012 Goals!!

Sunday, September 30, 2012

This is a day early, but I figure why not get the focuses and goals out before October 1st turns into October 10th. I normally like to do a list categorized into weight, fitness, nutrition, and personal goals, but this time I'm doing it different. Instead of categories and point blank goals, they're going to be focuses and then goals based on what I'm focusing on for this month. Here it goes:

This month I'll focus on:

Writing down everything I eat. emoticon
Eating in as much as possible. emoticon
Track my food spending. emoticon
Get in 3-4 skate sessions per week. emoticon
Getting over the fear of falling and going fast. emoticon

By focusing on these items I will accomplish:

Weight loss of 5-8 pounds emoticon
Have more money in savings emoticon
Doing crossovers emoticon
Get my 5 in 25 or close to it emoticon
Cut eating out by 30% emoticon
Making a monthly budget plan that I can stick to emoticon

Other goals I would like to accomplish:
Clean the office area completely emoticon
Become more efficient with menu planning emoticon
Gain better eating habits emoticon

Goals that are low priority but would be nice to accomplish:
Make good peanut brittle emoticon
Practice guitar twice a week emoticon
Clean the downstairs closet emoticon

Here's to a great October!!

    Wow, that's a lot of focus, I suggest you pick only one, and focus on that for a month - this approach worked for me on the long term like marvel!

    I'm starting to train for roller derby. There's a team here that's a teaching team and so no tryouts required. I love it!

    I like your attitude!! What do you skate for? Is it hockey or roller derby? or am I completely off?

It's Been Months, but I'm Back Again!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I didn't realize how long it's been since my last blog...or my last sign in to sparkpeople. Yikes! So I've gotten back on track and gotten off track...and back on. I did start this Eat Stop Eat program which incorporates fasting and it works for me. The weight loss is slow, but it's happening. I do need to get myself in check with my eating habits because they're horrible. I'm embarrassed to say what they entail. I know I just need to take it baby steps at a time right now and not overwhelm myself. For right now, just work on tracking my food again. Get in that habit as well as cooking and making meals for myself at home. I have spurts where I'll plan out weekly menus for several weeks, then I'll get off track and eat out (because of convenience and it tastes good) way too much.

I am on track for exercising. I started learning roller derby (well just skating for right now) and I'm addicted. This is honestly the first activity that I've started doing that I thoroughly enjoy and can't wait until the next practice. I'm already missing skating and we had a 2 hour practice last night. Yes, it's officially a drug now. Stay tuned for future blogs announcing my derby name.

It's great to be back!
