I said in yesterday's blog that I wanted to come up with a list of what I want to do and how I'm going to accomplish it. I got this from one of my Sparkfriend's blogs:
So in reading this, I have come up with my own list of what I want & how I will get there.
WHAT I WANT:
**I want to live up to my username. At the beginning of the year I decided I needed a new name that reflected my inner spirit. I WANT TO RUN!
**I want to hike and be one with nature (now this would be in almost any season but summer as I'm not a big fan of humidity).
**I want to go white water rafting and/or kayaking.
**I want to make my daughter proud of me.
**I want to go to the beach and feel comfortable in my own skin
**I want to look HOT in a swimsuit. I'm ok with this being a one piece. I never wore a bikini in the past except at the age of 2
**I want to feel sexy in a little
**I want to sit in a chair, car, airplane or whatever and not have to worry about squeezing in or if I will fit.
HOW I WILL GET THERE:
1)Talking with God.
2)64 oz or more a day of water.
3)Exercise daily & track it.
4)Track My Food Daily-to begin with I may just list my foods in notes w/o going into specific portion sizes. Tracking/journaling has always been tough for me to do on a constant basis. So I will start with a baby step and go from there. Progress NOT perfection Something is better than nothing!
I am not making this a monthly goal. This is something I want to strive for daily. I will tweak this more as my body changes. I am not putting a specific time frame. I am taking one day at a time. The point for me is, I need to make changes from what I've done in the past. So going forward, this is what I will do daily. I'm ready to take the bull by the horns. My ticker was updated on 5/31/10. It's a new day and I intend to make the most of each & every one! I am tired of the regrets. So no more excuses & no more regrets!
For those of you who responded "I'm in" or "sign me up" to yesterday's blog, did you come up with your list? Did you come up with a list of what you want & how you're going to get there? This can be something that you blog about here or just write down on a piece of paper. I prefer to do it on here because 1)it makes me more accountable and 2)it's easier for me to type and correct as opposed to scratching out things Whatever your choice was, I hope you will keep me posted!
For those who are already on track and offered suggestions, support and/or encouragement, I APPRECIATE IT AND YOU!
Alright, for me, it's time for ABSOLUTELY NO MORE EXCUSES. It's time to get with it and DO THIS! WE CAN DO THIS....WE WILL DO THIS....AS LONG AS WE STICK TOGETHER!

Thank you for the responses on my previous blog from this morning. I loved the feedback I got! I'm definitely stuck on exercise for blogging topics today. Hopefully this is a positive sign of what's to come!
Ok, so I as I've said before, I don't belong to a gym. I've been there & done that. I belonged to a gym in the past that I really liked.
So today, I was talking w/one of my Sparkfriends, RUNA5K2010, as she was going to a cycling class. We also live in the same city so we chatted a bit and she got me thinking about rejoining the gym I had been a member of 3-4 times in the past. My favorite thing about this gym is that they have an indoor pool w/water aerobics (DAWNWATERWOMAN I know I've got your attention:). So I did some research through my health insurance. I am eligible for discounts at this gym. I'm seriously considering cancelling WW, as I'm truly not benefiting from it right now, and go with a gym membership instead.
I Sparkmailed my other good friend DALMOMOF3 as she has kids and attends the gym. I wanted some feedback from her standpoint. It really helped. She pointed out, very wisely, that I didn't need to go to the gym with someone else. This could be my ME time. She had me at ME TIME! I could definitely go after Em is in bed. I also like the idea of taking water aerobics classes on Wednesday evenings-my day off. They even offer Pool Zumba on that night. The only thing I would need is a swimsuit.
So I talked with my boss and she mentioned trying to get a guest pass to see how it would work with my life style. If I decide to sign up, it would be for 96 weeks.
I still want to mix up what I have at home. But I like the idea of some ME time and this would be right up my alley I think as it would get me away from home to do it.
