My Sunday

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I am still not 100% better from my hamstring sprain but I am now able to walk normal with out the limp. I went to the doctor earlier this week and he advised me to stay away from my Turbo Fire for 2-3 weeks. Told me to take it slow and begin building myself up to the point where I will be able to jump back into my TurboFire. My lesson is learned. DO PROPER FORM!!!! Chalene always expresses this in the videos. Also my doctor said he was proud of me for losing some weight since the last time he saw me and encouraged me to continue in that path. It made me feel so good and proud to lose my first 10lbs. I am a couple pounds away until I can say GOODBYE to the 300's and I am so excited. This is has been the longest I have stuck through without giving up. Very proud. Baby steps. So I have begun walking like doctor said and I did the Walk AWAY the Pounds video and let me tell you it made me sweat. I like that video. In my head I kept on wanting the Turbo Fire intensity and was thinking this walking video isn't going to make me sweat. It proved me wrong. Overall I am happy and grateful that I have finally stuck with my decision to get healthy. Even my husband told me that this morning. How proud he was of me to sticking to my guns in getting healthy. I want to live a long healthy life and to enjoy it with my husband and my future children. emoticon
I love this program. I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE!!! It really works.

It's been 3 weeks doing TurboFire. It is something I have learned to look forward to do when I get home from work. When I have a rough day at work TurboFire is what helps me get all the frustration or stress out. Well Monday I did my workout was a little sore but nothing major. Waking up Tuesday....WOW my left leg hurt. Limping. I stretched and felt immediate relief but then as the day progressed pain got worse. Muscles are stiff. Now it's Thursday and still can not walk right. Been going to all the stores trying to find a brace that fits my large leg. NOTHING!!!! They are all too small. My doctor can not see me until Tuesday and I work on my feet all day. And I miss doing my TurboFire. I want to work out. I will go to store tomorrow or Saturday and purchase some weights so I can work out my upper body. I am so disappointed. I will not give up.

My battle

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I am constantly battling with my mind. I have to remind myself mind over matter. I am not quiting on my journey of health and weight loss. I am stronger than this. Even if I don't feel like working out ...I will do it.

Feeling ill

Monday, December 24, 2012

Well I woke up excited this morning being that it's Christmas eve. Had planned my day out. Eat breakfast with the hubby, drop him off at work, finish wrapping presents, workout etc..etc. My husband and I decided to eat breakfast at a local pancake house...BIG MISTAKE. While the food was great..the aftermath not so good. Two words...FOOD POISON! To make matters worse I have a splitting headache. I am disappointed because I am on a roll with working out with my TurboFire but if I even try to attempt it I know what going to happen. I just hope I am better by's Christmas!!! emoticon

Day #6

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Well I didn't do my turbo fire workout yesterday. I was having GI issues that had me out of commission. Today feeling 85% better. So I decided I was going to do yesterdays workout today. To be honest with you I really didn't want to workout at all and wanted to be a couch bum. Here comes the constant mental battles I have with myself on a daily basis with exercising and food. So I pushed through those mental barriers and put in my Turbo Fire DVD. Started to exercise and there were several times I just wanted to quit. Just quit because it hurt and I just couldn't keep with Chalene. But I did not give up! I was telling myself that I can not quit. I have to train insane or remain the same. I am going to get fit and healthy. I will come out of this a stronger and healthier Marry. I am glad I did not give up. It wasn't my best workout by far but I did it. I wonder to myself if any of the others on this journey have this happen to them. How do they push through? emoticon

    If you didn't wanna quit I would think you're strange lol.. Your doin great.. Even if you simply can't make it to the end, stop and come back when you can... If you can't come back today, make sure you press play tomorrow and try again.. The only WRONG way to do it is to NOT do it at all.. I started on my journey 6/6/12.. I've only lost 20 pounds.. That would discourage some people. But that's crazzyyy... I LOST 20 pounds I don't fn care how long it took.. I'm less then I was when the year started ya know !! And it keeps me going. I'm getting better healthier and stronger everyday. Next yr I might keep losing slow, and miss a workout here and there but I won't start over. I move forward. This is life. No do overs just do betters :) you got this, and when you don't we are here for ya ... HAPPY HOLIDAYS
