Week 2A!

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

This is the second week of my 15 week goal. People are starting to notice already that I'm losing. Although I haven't seen movement on the scale, I am seeing a loss in inches. My clothes are getting looser and I feel more fit, less tired. No aching feet or knees.

That Zumba is amazing! But I have to stick to my calorie consumption. Because of being conscious of overeating I ate below my calorie range for Sunday and Monday. WAY BELOW!! So here is to sticking with my calorie range. I'll see what the result will be on weigh-in Friday.

Keep sparking. It DOES work - when I work at it!!


Hooray for little accomplishments!

I was able to go to the back bench of a minivan yesterday!! That is an accomplishment for me. When riding in the back of a minivan I usually dread going to the back bench. I usually have a tough time getting out and getting in. But, NOT YESTERDAY!! I even volunteered to go to the back bench!! emoticon It's the little things like that to help keep me motivated.

Hooray for little accomplishments!

The new personality..

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

OK, so I think I'm doing good. I ate breakfast, calories good, ate a very light lunch (soup and baked lays) cause I'm eating out later. I go to Applebees and have the Chicken Bruscetta salad. Good right? NO!! There is batter fried mozzarella in the salad. OK. No problem, just don't eat that. The rest was pretty good. I now have to track what I ate. A whopping 740 calories for the salad!! I should have had a steak!!

Ridiculous. At the very least I am tracking what I eat. This will help me make good choices tomorrow and the next time we're out at Applebees!

I have to remember to put off the old personality and put on the new. The new personality makes better choices. The new personality feels good inside and out because of those choices. The new personality is happier and healthier. I must use my power of reason and personally be convinced that this way is the right way. Time will show that it is.


5/23/11 - We're still here...ok, good, more time to change

The Power of 5 minutes is amazing. Just waiting five more minutes before eating an unhealthy snack can complete undo the craving. AMAZING!! Zumba - DONE 4 today! emoticon

Incredible. Time goes by so fast. I just discovered Zumba. I like it, do it every day. Now I feel inspired to track my food, read the blogs of other successful sparkers and finally write my own blog. I just read a blog and really liked her method of counting down her days. She has lost 55 pounds in 120 days, I think. I'm inspired by her.

I'm going to write my days too. But, how about I start over at Day 1A! :-)

OK. For Day 1A I drank a ton of water. Stayed within my calorie range, but ate badly. I had to take my grandkids home. It's an hour drive. We had a fully day of activities and I actually made lunch and carried it with us.

I knew I wouldn't be back home for dinner, so we ate badly. I stayed within my caloric range but I felt badly about not eating healthy. But here comes my Zumba DVD. Put that in and work out for 45 minutes. That's the way to go.

I felt much better after and drank some more water, took my vitamins and will go to bed. Satisfied.

Let's see what happens tomorrow. Here's to staying on track for more than 1 day.
