Okay, so I just totally got a WAY BETTER workout from a girly Denise Austin walking video for beginners, compared to the Leslie Sansone ones I've tried. My shirt is wet from sweat, which doesn't usually happen. It's a fast 15-minute mile, and I've posted the YouTube link for anyone who wants to try it.
youtube.com/watch?v=VbVhEaTzuwA

After I finished with that, I turned on Pandora and walked in place and danced (if you'd call it that) to 3 more songs, which gave me a total workout time of 28 minutes. I know it's not much, but I usually only do around 20.

And while I come nowhere close to what she does for fitness each day, I have SANDY1969 to thank for the inspiration. I love reading her blogs because she has a great personality about her!

Bad, bad food weekend...

    Awww that is so sweet, thank you. But, the only one that can take credit for you doing what you get done is you. Someone just asked in a group challenge how do you do it when your heart isnt in it. I dont think you do.

I just finished a craft I was working on and it had this saying.

"Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow"

Same thing applies here. You have to want it for no other reasons than the ones that make sense to you.

Good luck on the quitting smoking also. You can do it! A mile in 15 mins is AWESOME!

When we tell others how our day will be, I think it kind of sets something in motion within our subconscious to strive a little harder for it, because now there are others watching. Wow, I might just try that! It makes sense, and I don't know anyone who enjoys letting others down. So, if I confess it with my mouth, and here for you all to read, it will cause me to be more apt to stick to the plan. I'm not just going to say that I "want" to do something--I'm going to say that I AM going to do something. I AM going to measure everything I eat today to get correct portion sizes. I AM going to exercise today. Notice the difference? Woohoo!

    I believe you can do this.
I'm already proud of you!
Remember to drink your water, and exercise a least 10 minutes today. Also keep a food journal plus tracking it. I'm here for you anytime. Drop me a line, I would love to hear from you!

This blog may be way off topic for some of you, but I just wanted to share with you how great it feels to be so in love with someone that you would literally do anything for them! This is how I feel about my boyfriend, Brent. We have been together for a little more than two years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how every day I fall deeper in love with him. I had been through a few bad relationships in my life, and I never dreamed that God would bring someone into my life who not only was my lover, but who also plays the roles of a father figure, best friend, teacher... really everything that I never thought I would have all at once in my life! He has extremely keen perception of others, and he is helping me to get over my own skeletons. I don't know why he puts up with my antics at times, but he is helping me to spread my wings and become the person I have always wanted to be. It took me quite a while to discover just who I am, and while I still feel like I'm in my cocoon, I know that I'm about to emerge as a beautiful butterfly, and this man will be right there with me when I spread my wings and take flight.

Today, on Facebook, my friend, Leslie, posted that she liked a recipe on Pinterest for blueberry muffins that you make in a mug. I looked at the ingredients to see if I had everything to make one, and I sure did! It was so easy to make, like literally from scratch, and my boyfriend, Brent, had me make him one, too!

Here is the recipe if anyone is interested: budgetbytes.com/2013/02/blueberry-mu
g-muffin/


There, now that I got my Betty Crocker fix, I feel like I want to try a bunch of other easy recipes that are budget friendly and have step-by-step instructions so that I don't screw anything up!


I also braved the crowds of people and made it to church this morning, something I had been wanting to do for a few weeks now. Somewhere down the line I developed a sort of social anxiety to go anywhere by myself. I really dislike this trait about me, and I've decided that I need to start looking for opportunities to torture myself, all alone, in bigger groups of people, until I can get used to being out and about by my lonesome self again. I could be going about this all wrong, but I don't like going to a therapist much anymore, either, so I'd rather try this feat on my own.

    Way to go Teresa! The recipe sounds great and I hope you come across some things that are more budget friendly to eat. My family didn't have a lot of money growing up so there were a lot of left over type meals. It's funny because one of the meals we ate, happens to be what I'm craving (and made today); S.O.S. All you need is bread, ground beef, flour and milk. For the last part of your blog, I'm glad you got out to church and Teresa you aren't ever alone with God ;-)

    I love new recipes and am getting motivated to do so again as I'm bored with my meals.

I go through periods where I feel self conscious going places alone but am trying to get over it again.

    I understand your dilemma. You're doing the right thing to brave your way through the crowd and go to church. I fight this at times, too.

    it is scary, I know. I was 'single' for 8 years and learned to do a bunch of junk on my own. Most of the time I had my daughter with me at church but there were times I was alone, and I felt fine once I got in and seated. I am going to try the muffin! I just bought fresh blueberries so I am giving it a shot!

    looks like im going to the store for blueberries, looks so yummy! I know what you mean about crowds, I don't like to go anywhere by myself and now with a new baby I feel even more isolated because it's just easier for hubby to go to the store or what not by himself then back up the baby and go with. You can do it! one step at a time :)
