4 Fri DaNcE DaRe...I move and like it

Friday, March 04, 2011

I picked, Airplanes~B.o.B. & Hayley Williams, because that's the song my kids play ALL the time.ALL THE TIME...over and over.We had fun.

I address this to Adrienne (LOVNGMENOW), cuz.... well, it seems like she started it ;)

We had a blast. We made a night of it tonight (Thursday) My hubby works, he's not in. He's huge into country and we three LOVE our dance. We have another 3 videos made.
Survivor~Destiny's Child
In my Head~Jason Derulo
Boom Boom~Black Eyed Peas

We tossed the younger ones in bed, and because Daddy wasn't home to roll his eyes on a Thursday night (Nightshift guy) we then played our favs songs of late. We took a couple of takes of each song.

Sleep when yer dead!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Updating on our day of Tim Horton's coupon Snowtubing with the fam :D
Unsleeping children, hat head and hissy-fit curls, live footage, in-laws, garlic bread with cheese&bacon, little-bit but not a whole-lot guilty, and just surviving the snowglobe life.

    You are too funny and thank you for the early morning laugh!!! We only got a dusting this year - it is like Maryland was admitted from the snow and I just don't know what we did, oh well!!!

    OH man, snowtubing sounds fun! How far north in Canada do you live? I am from Missouri so we rarely got enough snow growing up to get a good sledding day in, but now I live in southern Alabama, so NO snow whatsoever. :P I love me some warm weather, though! Right now I'm wearing short sleeves and flip flops outside because this week warmed up to the low 70's! Woot!
Anyway, I'm about to leave my warm haven and trek back to MO and then to Korea!! Both places = cold.
I like your hair! I think it looked cute!
It's so good to be loved by your inlaws! I am blessed by that kind of relationship as well.

    Way to go! It is always good when we stay in the ranges that we have selected for ourselves! You are right, you may lose more exercising, but you are doing fine. I'm not much of an exerciser either. I have a torn miniscis (sp?) anyway, I do light movement and exercise, but at least I move!

Humble Pie still tastes like sawdust

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

I had a grandiose idea that I would be one of these super-motivated women we've read about in the Spark Pages and have all these migraine/pregnancies pounds shed within a year.
I just bought a scale.
I hate logging my food. I'm not ashamed of the calories being tallied, I get annoyed that nothing I eat is easily accessible and what should take seconds takes too long.

I fell to the pressure that my health is not a priority. That if I was going to take time to care for myself with fitness than I was being selfish. I don't enjoy getting sweaty. I've got dry skin and curly hair, bathing extra is not a desire of mine. It's been a battle this year.

I begin again. The extra has to come off it is killing me spiritually and I'm sure it's laying groundwork physically as well.

It's sad that a dream has died, but, I plan on being at 170 by September. It is a priority over everything. I really think the extra weight is contributing to the seasonal depression and migraines.

I can't give up on me.

    Yay!!! (I'm back now, too.)

That's right -- you can't give up on you. And you're reminding me not to give up on myself, either. Thank you!!!

    I think you are doing great. Just trying to start over is wonderful. Just think of all the other times you tried to loose weight as practice and now is the real thing and you can do it now since you already practiced it. Don't think about all the past mistakes and how hard it USED to be. Just think of how wonderful it will in the future.

I know how hard it is try to loose weight with migraines and depression. Eating with headaches always makes me feel better. But, we can eat healthier things most of the time, right?

Good luck. You can do it.

    I'm glad you're back! You can do this. I, too, struggle with some of the same issues. I have Celiac disease and many of the gluten-free foods I eat are not on the tracker, nor do I know the calories of the gf bread I buy at the bakery. However, I've input most of what I eat in my Favorites and substitute for the rest. I can also relate to the dry skin issue (though NOT the curly hair, which I've always wanted! LOL). I had to get to the mental place where the exercise was more important than the inconvenience of putting lotion on after every shower.

    Good for you for not giving up!

Good for you for noticing your goals are set high!

Only you can decide how to go from here, and today is the first day of the rest of your life. One day at a time, you decide how much you can do and what goals to set. If you need to re-think, then you must, but you are so right: you cannot give up on yourself because wherever you go, you will still be right there. Don't worry: you are WORTH EVERY BIT OF IT!! Good for you for focusing on your priorities!!!

    Hang in there! logging in food becomes a nice habit before long!

EMMANYC 2/2/2011 2:58PM

    Don't give up. Logging your food does get a lot easier after a couple of weeks. Once you've entered the foods you typically eat, it becomes much simpler to record them. If there are food groupings you often have, you can save them as groups and enter just the group in your tracker (and all the foods in the group show up). For example, I've saved the typical ingredients in the salad I order at work every weekday (about 8 items). I just choose "workday salad" the tracker adds the 8 items, which I can then edit if necessary in my daily tracker.

Slow is still a go

Sunday, August 22, 2010

This morning as I was recording the remainder of yesterday's food intake, I stopped and pondered the results. I was over (again), but, what was this odd deformity gracing my lips?...A smile? How can I smile in the face of failure?
I hadn't failed. It wasn't the picture of perfection, but, it was not close to a FAIL at all. As far as I'm concerned I could have been far more destructive and the effort I put in yesterday was a vast improvement over my old habits.

1. I didn't take seconds on the absolutely luscious ribs my children made (even at the risk of John and Kate not barbecuing ever again for the mama...I doubt that, those kids have seen me cower in fear of the BBQ).

2. I didn't snack when hubby came home from his absence. He usually power snacks when he gets home. I had oodles of cookies for prepared for him. He tends to not need a snack buddy when there is ample cookies available. I hope I remember this trick.

So as far as I am concerned I avoided a minimum of 1, 500 calories yesterday that I wouldn't have before and that my friends is success. Slow success, but, success none-the-less. Slow is still a go...

HaPpY DaNce.....2 min.= 10 calories burned ;)
