Connecting to fitbit

Thursday, September 04, 2014

I decided to go a step further after seeing an e-mail from Sparkpeople that you can connect your fitbit device to your page. I want to start keeping track of my steps. My goal is to do 10,000 steps per day.

T25 and losing weight

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

I joined a weight loss group and it ended in the beginning of August. To compensate for this group loss I was given T25 during the time and started doing the workouts. Around the 3rd or 4th week of doing T25 I got this crazy notion to start tracking my weight loss progress in order to receive the free t-shirt for T25. Well, I am in the 7th wee now and been taking pictures every week to keep track of my progress. I was quite embarrassed at first in doing so because I'm ashamed of what my stomach looks like, but now I'm feeling a bit more confident and feeling better inside. As of today, since I really started concentrating on losing weight I have lost 22 pounds.

I am attaching a picture of me at my first day of the 90 day challenge to obtain the T25 shirt.

Body Aches

Monday, May 12, 2014

I have been consistently losing weight. On average, it is 2 to 3 pounds a week. To help keep me going on track I have signed up for this ton of fun group which is similar to the biggest loser. We get together to do classes on watching healthy cooking demonstrations to exercise classes and can get together in addition to these classes by attending fun walk/run sessions during the week which are on Thursday and Saturday. Also, there is a fitness class held at a fitness center every Sunday. I ended up going to the fitness class and it was intense. My body still aches from it. Despite the aches, it was worth it attending this fitness class. I feel my confidence coming back with each new step I take towards my weight loss goal. The great thing too is I am not alone in fighting to stay fit and healthy. I have others that are doing the same thing as me with the same intention of losing weight, staying fit and healthy. The other great thing is we all can be connected through Facebook to encourage each other and also to get together on our own.

Week after being letting go

Friday, March 28, 2014

Today is the 7th day since finding out I was being laid off at work. So far I have kept myself on track with eating right and exercising. It has been awhile since I have done a full workout routing of not only doing treadmill work, but also lifting weights. My body aches and I am sore. At times it feels so painful I feel like caving, but it is days like today where I realize I can't give up. Giving up is not an option because since I started this routine I have lost inches. My clothes are looser on me and I feel my confidence returning. I want this feeling to last and I know the only way I can make it last is by pushing through and persevering.
