I QUIT!

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Oh yes my friends! I QUIT!

I've given up so much since I started with SparkPeople!

I Quit saying "I'll start tomorrow"!
I Quit saying "I'll do it someday!
I Quit thinking I can't do it!
I Quit feeling sorry for myself!
I Quit making excuses!
I Quit feeling like a failure!
I Quit blaming others!
I Quit my emotional eating!
I Quit being a couch potato!
I Quit smoking! (on 1/6/10 emoticon)
I Quit hiding!
I Quit feeling overwhelmed!
I Quit stressing out!
I Quit the waiting...& started living!
I Quit waiting for someone else to make me happy!

Ya know my friends? Quitting never felt so GOOD! emoticon

Are you ready to Quit??? Please join me... & you CAN be a Quitter too!

emoticon Rose

    Hey, I'm a quitter too ... I quit smoking Eight years, two months, six days, 10 hours, 34 minutes and 1 second ago. 119577 cigarettes not smoked, saving $14,947.20. Life saved: 1 year, 7 weeks, 2 days, 4 hours, 45 minutes. That's from my silkquit meter. I think you can get one by googling it. Bravo woman!

    Isn't it grand to be a QUITTER??

AND...it's ever better to be a STARTER!!

p.s. join me in giving a big "WOO HOO" for my son who gave up smoking the beginning of January!! I pray that he finds the success as you have; and he also started a C25K program!!

Joy!

    Hooray for You!
It has been surprising to me what things I've quit. Just today I noticed that instead of feeling sorry for myself when January went way off course, I took a big step back and started to look at why I was lost. Now I'm taking steps to get back on course. Rather than quitting my diet, I've given up expecting to be perfect and equating a few slip ups as a sign of imminent failure.

Great post, Rose. There's a lot to think about here. Thank you!

WOOHOO! SHARING MY JOY!

Friday, January 14, 2011

emoticon I joined the Couch to 5K Team this morning! Let the Games Begin!

And I just completed my first session!

I put on my new running emoticon & hubby was the time keeper! I warmed up for 5 minutes...then, I began! I did my first 60 seconds of gentle jogging. There I was...

emoticon ....me! For real!

Um okay, let me just say that 60 seconds is A LOT longer than I imagined! And I kept asking hubby, "now?" "is it time???" for the first 2 cycles. But then, something happened & I was able to do it easily after that! Who knew!

emoticon It was an emoticon feeling!

I completed a total of 20 minutes of alternating 60 seconds of gentle jogging & 90 seconds of brisk walking!

Then hubby & I finished an hour walk! emoticon

emoticon I just had to share my JOY! emoticon

emoticon Rose

Happy Weigh In Day!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

emoticon Hello My Friends!

I am overjoyed with gratitude today for having lost 2.4 lbs this week! Imagine my surprise when I stepped on that scale this morning & saw 178.8 on the digital dial!

emoticon I was one HAPPY lady!

I'm seeing results of my due diligence this week, that's for certain! The faithful return of my routine...eating healthy & nutritiously. Cooking low fat ...eating fish twice a week. Staying in calorie range, monitoring portions, drinking the water...& moving my body! I've been slacking off on my steps a bit. Meaning I've fallen below the 15,000 steps I've set for a personal goal. I'm still doing 10000 steps tho. I plan to step it up...literally!
I've been doing PLENTY of emoticon!
Hubby's been doing it w/me & has lost 15 lbs! emoticon

I'm very grateful for all the warm wishes & words of encouragement from all my fellow Sparkers! You're the wind beneath my wings my friends! I can't say it enough! Thank you all for continuing to join me on this wondrous journey!

Hubby & I went to the farmer's market in Ft. Myers today! I took a couple of pics of all the fruits & veggies sprawled upon my kitchen counter, but I can't get the pic to upload to my blog! LOL I will try again later....if it'll let me! Laughing......

Have a GREAT day everyone! Don't be discouraged if your weight loss efforts haven't been what you've envisioned! Your body has a mind of its own...& everything will come together in due time! After all...we can't rush success! It just happens when we're busy doing other things!

And food for thought: One day + one day + one day of staying on track = SUCCESS

Get to it my friends! Keep Sparkin'!

emoticon Rose

EXTRAORDINARY THINGS WILL HAPPEN!

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Hello My Friends!

I hope everyone is well! I've tried to blog several times, only to have it disappear to ....who knows where! LOL

I know you're all working hard on your 2011 goals, & I've been doing the same! I'm adjusting to my new surroundings & have gotten myself back on task! I'm eating healthy, staying in calorie range, drinking the water, & doing plenty of walking! I must admit, it's been really nice to be walking outdoors again! The weather in SW Florida has been beautiful! But enough of that... (I know many of you are being hit hard by the winter weather & I'm feeling a little guilty). Oh, but just a little! Smiling....

I weighed myself this morning & I'm down to 180.2! I can't record it yet because my official weigh day is tomorrow...but I'm very excited to be weighing in at 180! I have NOT seen this number in a long, long time!

emoticon I'm one happy lady!

I'm feeling confident! I'm feeling accomplished! I'm feeling motivated! I'm rising to the occasion to do whatever I must to reach my goal by June 2011! I'm thinking EXTRAORDINARY things will happen! I re-affirm my commitment & strengthen my resolve! I'm EXCITED because I WILL reach my weight goal!

Stay the course, my friends! Avoid disappointment & future regret! Stick to your resolve & get the job done! You CAN do it! We CAN do it together!

emoticon Rose

    Hi Sunshine State from the Golden State. I've been resisting the urge to shout about our weather since going to the gym in the snow sounds so much cooler. We are having earthquakes right now, though! Nice job on the 180! You are going gangbusters!

    Congrats on the 180.2! Don't feel guilty about the weather- we've been enjoying the snow (and lack of work)!

You are a wonderful example of working hard, knowing what you are after & expecting nothing less than Extraordinary Things!
