Day 5 - 45/45 Plan
Friday, July 9, 2010
Activity: Walked to Dessert Gallery/Walked in place at work in A/C!
Time: 45 minutes
Calories burned: 650
I had a great walk on my lunch break. I was killing two birds with one stone (1) Getting in exercise and (2) saving gas. I had dinner guests over and treating them to Dessert Gallery desserts which are their favs (not to mention mine too), and there is one down the street from my work (what I consider down the street is not your norm, people would rather drive there especially in 100 degree weather but feels like 110 b/c of the humidity but what the heck I like stuff like this). So I walked there a little faster than I thought b/c I made it in 7 minutes I was thinking more like 12 minutes, I knew I was walking fast b/c my leg started hurting to where I was limping. When I made it to Dessert Gallery I ordered my desserts, rested a bit and then headed back to the office saying to myself walk easy pace (which is hard b/c I walk fast everywhere I make people's papers fly off their ledges here at work when I pass by). I made it back to the office but I still had to do 15 minutes more to get in my 45, so I just walked in place in our conference room doing variation of walking exercises but I got it done. I honestly thought I was going to dive into the desserts but you know what I had no desire to even have a bite which is so unlike me. BUT I didn't have a single one even at dinner while everyone enjoying the desserts ooooing and aaaahing.
So I made it to Day 3 of no bread and desserts.
Day 6 - 45/45 Plan
Saturday, July 10, 2010
Activity: JM30DS Levels 1 and 2
Time: 45 minutes
Calories burned: 700
I knew I had to wake up early today b/c we had to be at the church at NOON (since hubby was the photographer for a wedding). I drug myself out of bed b/c Friday long night with dinner guests (though it was worth it). I flipped through all my exercise videos b/c I knew I had no time for anything outside. I decided on JM30DS, since each level is only 20 mins, I had to do Levels 1 and Levels 2 to make it 40 minutes with my own 5 minute warm-up. Too a quick shower, we ate at Luby's for lunch and then headed to the church.
I wish I could say that I made it to Day 4 w/o any sweets (I did bread sort of!) but at the wedding I had a silver of piece, then the grooms cake was chocolate and my sister put a piece in front of me and w/o even thinking I dove into that one! I was kicking myself all the way home and I wish I could tell you why I did it but I just cannot. I was so happy when I read Joy's blog (SPARKLOVE) today about Emotional Talk and how I have to remember to forgive myself, THANK YOU JOY!
Day 7 - 45/45 Plan
Sunday, July 11, 2010
Activity: Walked/Jog around neighborhood taking different path.
Time: 50 minutes
Calories burned: 700
Hubby and I were so tired that we slept right through and didn't make it to church (so bummed about that b/c my fav speaker was speaking - Gary Thomas). We didn't get to bed until 5 a.m. Did make it up at 10 a.m., 1st thing I did was eat a little something and then got into my workout clothes (to be honest I didn't want to all I wanted to do was be in my PJs all day long and chill) but b/c of weighing in on Saturday it gave me the motivation I needed. I had gone from 159 to 149.4 (no I had not updated my weight ticker, it's not that I am not honest about how much I weigh or not I honestly forget about this sometimes). And thinking about our European trip too and SHOPPING for clothes for this trip. I would like to be 125-130 when on this trip. Anyhoo, hubby joined me and I told him it would be a walk/jog - walk/jog intervals around the neighborhood but I was taking different route, he really enjoyed it and says he wants to workout more often with me, don't tell him I told you guys this but he said that he doesn't workout with me b/c he wants to be able to workout at the same INTENSITY as me feels if he cannot he just rather not do it. I told him I didn't start off that way either ya know, I had to work my way up to it. So he said he would try. I will keep you posted on that as well...we shall see.
Again thank you to all my friends who keep me going especially my Naturally Thin team, I could not be on this journey without you ladies, you are the voices in my head that push me.

Day 3 - 45/45 Plan
Wednesday, July 7, 2010
Activity: Jillian Michaels Banish the Fat, Boost Metabolism
Time: 53 minutes
Calories burned: 700
I had never done this DVD before, it was still sealed (mind you I have only had it for a year now). It was tough tough tough, I was grunting and groaning so much so hubby kept coming in to check in on me. I did have to modify some exercises b/c of my leg. I was so sore after this workout BUT I felt so great afterwards! And get this - hubby comes in while I taking shower to ask if I had already started dinner b/c he wanted to buy us dinner since I worked out so hard. I said NO thank you (b/c trust me it would be junk fast food). I made spaghetti. I had small plate (I use salad plates) spaghetti and a Spinach/Argula (I know I misspelling it bad!) salad. Hubby had picked up some garlic bread (for the boys) and some French bread (for him). They are all so different. Anyway, yesterday was Day 1 with me eating NO BREAD and sweets. I could not believe it I was sitting right there in front of this huge plate of delicious bread and I had not a single one nor did I have a desire to eat a piece whatsoever. Trust me, bread has a hold on me, like an addiction just like sweets do (which I am trying to overcome). I am not saying I won't fall b/c I am only human after all but I sure am going to try my darnest not to!
All the credit and praise goes to God for this strength b/c I know it was not my own strength. I have been praying about this for a very long time, it is only through his Grace and strength that I was able to look at this bread and not want a single piece not even when I was preparing it.
When you are tired, hope in God's promises your strength will be renewed (Isa. 40:31). Placing your hope in your own efforts will only create more fatigue.
Thanks to all my friends and the support you have given me throughout this journey and continuing to do so. I am so very blessed.
Have a great and blessed day everyone.

This is everything that has happened to me since last Wednesday I was (still am sick) hit hard with illness, I have been sidelined from anything and my plan 45 for 45 came to a halt. Later in the day at the office I started not feeling well but I said ahhh just nothing major probably sinuses (if anyone lives in Texas you know what I am talking about). Anyway, I went home and worked out thinking maybe I could exercise out the sickess (didn't work).
Day 3 - Wednesday, June 9, 2010
45 mins Pilates Rebounder
Thursday, June 10, 2010
Woke up really sick. Drove straight to the dr since I knew they opened at 9 a.m., were able to take me, he said I had a really bad viral infection (which at the time was contagious and I would be wearing masks for the next 3 days and getting rest and plenty of fluids). Went home rested until my next dr appt (vascular surgeon) and got some bad news there is NOTHING they can do for my blood clot that since it will be 2 years in December it is now considered chronic and that if they even removed it the vessels are so damaged now that, that is what it keeping them together is the blood clot. Honestly, I cried all the way home and hubby just held me that whole night said he would be there for me no matter what happened. We are getting second opinion. Then I crashed.

Woke up even sicker, stayed home in bed. The ONLY good thing about being home sick is I got to watch the first coupe of World Cup games. WHOO HOO.
Saturday, June 12, 2010
Sicker than a dog. Stayed in bed all day until time to go to church, barely made it through church and then dinner then home back to bed.
Sunday, June 13, 2010
Sick still, stayed in bed again all day since Monday had to go back to the office.
Please forgive me if I did not make sense in this post and/or it was at all confusing, I am still out of it and would like to be at home in bed.
Thanks to those of you who checked in on me and sent me Spark Goodies, I am so blessed for your friendship.
God Bless you all,
