Awesome Friend!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

My biggest struggle is getting to the gym. Having two active kids, I am shuttling them from place to place, and can't find the hour in the day to get to the gym. I honestly don't know where my time goes someday. So I have been praying and praying for a way to fit working out into my life. My answer came by the way of my best friend Kat. Kat has also battled with weight issues and years ago made her goal. She recently had mentioned that she was going to sell her elliptical and buy a tread mill. I kept debating if I should make her an offer on her elliptical. But then three weeks ago I was rear ended at a red light, and my car was totalled. Well having an 8 year old car I didn't get a lot from my insurance company and had to dip deep into my savings to get a dependable used. So there went my elliptical. I have been little depressed dealing with the loss of my car. I'm not a big fan of change. Well last week Kat texted me that she was giving me her elliptical. I jumped for joy. Yesterday it was installed in my bedroom. And bing after dropping the kids off to school, I cranked up iTunes and USED it! Then I followed it with my Spark Stability ball work out. I feel Good. The best of all is to know that I have such and awesome friend who understood my need.

    Awesome! And the best way to pay her back - as well as do something that will make you feel amazing - is to USE IT on a regular basis! Good luck, that's really too cool!

Active, Active - Stay Active

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I passed on making a resolution this year! Mine always end up in a pile of disappointment. But I have been pushing towards daily goals. Like not sitting on the couch so much and getting outside. I refuse to let the cold be an excuse. So this past week, I found a local dog park and have been trekking it there the past couple days. I run around with the dog, get some peace and quiet and some me time. I have been adding few a few more veggies, and drinking more and more water etch day. Once I am done with this blog, I'm heading outside with my daughter to bike ride. Oh and I did pop in my Spark DVD and worked out with my resistance bands and my stability ball I got through Spark. Just have to take my journey one day at a time. Have a great day all!


The Christmas Struggle is Over

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

I struggle with the holidays as I'm sure everyone else does. The baking, appetizers, egg nog, drinks the list just goes on. But I have to admit, I didn't cook nearly as much as I have in the past. I left out some items, that I just didn't have time to make. Such as the family sweet potato casserole that has some insane amount of butter in it. So today I was wondering if that was the little voice in head telling me, you don't need to make that its just not a good choice.

This morning as I was drinking my coffee a question came to mind, "How did you get here?" To be honest I think I need to sit down with this and think it out. I think this is what is holding me back. I grew up in an extremely healthy home. One of my fond memories was counting all the vitamins I had to take before school with my unsweetened grapefruit juice. Maybe that's where it started who knows? But I do know I will need to sit with this question, so I can move on to live a healthier life.

    You're thinking in the right direction. THis is the perfect time for those thoughts. And who needs a sweet potatoe casserole anyway? Way to go for listening to the little voice. I'm sure everyone enjoyed all the other goodies anyway. Have a happy and healthy 2010!!!

Spark Goodies

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

I am so excited. I ordered the Spark Fitness starting pack and I got it today. Tomorrow morning I am going to get up and work out before I take the kids to school. I am even going to do it before I get a cup of coffee in my mouth. That's a big step for me. I tried to get out with the puppy but she has turned into a big chicken these days. Need to work on her. Have a great day everyone!

What a great week!

Friday, December 04, 2009

I have lost 5 lbs this week. That is a great start. Then I got a call out of the blue for a job interview. The interview went well and I was told that I will get called to schedule a 2nd interview. Awesome. I am so blessed this week. I am going out with 2 of my friends tonight and I am going to be a good girl. I hope everyone has a great healthy weekend.
