1/2 Pounder

Friday, April 16, 2010

Lost a 1/2 pound this week, kinda depressing but hey...1/2 pound loss is better than none at all or a gain. Gonna stay positive despite the depressing number on the scale. Enjoy your weekend. Gonna keep on sparking !!!

No Cooking Tonight

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Buy one foot long, get one free today at Subway. Gonna get one for hubby and daughter so I can spend a little extra time exercising tonight - I'll probably just have a light snack when I'm done. emoticon no cooking for me tonight.

    I LOVE the no cooking part!!!! I don't like dinner, my least favorite meal. I have tried everything I can think of to change my mind. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. Wish my hub liked Subway, he doesn't the old poo!

Someone says "NO"

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

When someone tells you can't do something, doesn't it make you more determined than ever to prove them wrong? I THOUGHT SO, just watch me.

Runnin and Runnin and Runnin

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Decided I would try running again, getting bored with some of my workouts, so what the heck, gonna give running another shot. For extra motivation, I signed up to run a 5K at my daughter's school in May, all proceeds go to charity, so even better. I ran yesterday on my lunch break, who cares if i'm all sweaty when I get done, if I let that stop me I would be missing out on an hour of exercise. I have been slowly working up to running during my walks anyway, so last week I pulled a Forrest Gump," I just kept runnin, and runnin and runnin" and it actually felt great. Yesterday I ran 2 miles at lunch and walked the third mile. I have put myself up to the challenge. I may not be as fast as I would like to be YET, but heck, I CAN RUN !!! I have also decided that i am shooting for a personal best time to finish the race - I'm giving it my all - it's all or nothing.

    Omg you people who start running scare me! I can't imagine waking up some day and deciding I wanted to go for a run. lol emoticon

I'm super excited for you though. I think that is so very awesome. It's a big inspiration. It's also a huge milestone for you.

When you're starting to slow a little, just pretend there is a emoticon chasing you.

I Rolled Outta Bed

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

I said I was gonna do it and I did. I rolled outta bed 45 minutes earlier to get in a workout before work. I have been wanting to do this for a while, but just plain lazy in the mornings. I asked my sister if she would mind waking me up since I can easily smack the snooze button, so I set my clock and I knew I better not hit the snooze because she would be coming to wake me up in a few, so I just rolled outta bed and surprised myself, hubby and her for already being up. I did my 20-minute quick latin dance workout DVD. Boy, do I feel great this morning, but the best part is knowing I could just get up. Gonna do it again tomorrow. Busy day planned - gonna run two miles at lunch (brought some gym clothes to work) then after work today going to gym for some strength training, and depending on how I feel I may just do some more cardio. I'm on a roll. Maybe even treat myself to a strawberry smoothie on my way home. Hope everyone has a great day. Wish me luck in getting up in the morning.

    Wow! Go you!!!! You are my inspiration. Maybe I'll try tp go to bed a little earlier so I can get up earlier to work out. By the way, the planning meals in advance is working like a charm. I had a successful weekend thanks to your advice. Keep it up, you can do it!!

    You CAN do it. Just keep PICTURING yourself doing it, and you will! I am impressed with your energy. Thanks again for being such a positive influence. I don't like working out in the a.m. but I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. However, I was thinking of getting my walking tape out and doing a 20 minute walk, or two miles, whichever, and I think I would feel like you: lively for the day,like I started out well! See, you "sparked" me! good job! emoticon

    emoticon for getting up early to get your work-out in. I've had to get up REALLY early these last couple of days... but I do so love starting my day off on that healthy foot.
Great job! Keep it up. emoticon

    Awesome! It only takes about a week, and then your internal alarm clock wakes you up - then its just a matter of putting your feet on the floor LOL!! Kudos to you, morning workouts are awesome they really start your day off great! emoticon
