Okay so I can't believe it's November already and we only have 2 months left in the year. WOW were does time go!?! Also means two months left in Sallies 20 week Challenge... So I have to step it up! d

On to my Goals:

emoticon eat better this month... the past week I have been slipping bad... not watching my sodium at all! emoticon

emoticon going for 1600 minutes this month! I did my 1500 + for Oct. emoticon It wasn't as hard as I thought!! But I can do better!! I know Thanksgiving is coming up so it will make it harder but more reason to shoot for more.. I mean if I m going to be eating holiday food I m going to need the exercise! So we will see which will win out... I could be crazy on this lol

emoticon measure once a month

I am going to try to make healthier holiday foods as well!
I bought the Spark cook book and am going to try and put it to use!
For Christmas i think I m going to ask for another exercise machine.. not sure what kind yet.. will take suggestions!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hoildays.. its the only time of the year were when everyone gets togeather they seem to be happy and get alone ... yup family issues lol

I love the decorating, and buying and wrapping gifts for everyone and the food!
I love christmas caroling, just sitting in the living room at night with nothing on but the christmas lights and fire place. Yummy hot coco with a few marshmellows....I love the Christmas movies! And I love making Christmas cookies with my girls!!

Boy I could problaly go on but I won't lol

Good Morning and Happy Halloween to you all!

Here's my weekly update:

last week 325.1
this week 323.7
down 1 lb

I'll surely take it! I think it would have been alittle more if it weren't for aunt flo who I thought was going to be checking OUT today but oddly enough she hasn't lol This week I worked out like crazy but because of my guest I didn't eat so well.. sure I stayed in my calorie limit but didn't eat all that healthy the past 3 or 4 days even had a big red yesterday, the first soda I've had in a VERY LONG time lol oh well back to my normal this week.. Eating better and working out as much as I can mange.. =-)) oh and can't forget drinking tons of water lol

Also I have a question does anyone else have this problem???

Almost 3 days ago now I made my 1500 fitness minutes and it shows it on my fitness tracker but no where else!?!

Best wishes to everyone for a safe a Happy Halloween!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

20 week challenge week 10 weight in

Monday, October 24, 2011

emoticon I m Happy to say I m down another 4lbs this week putting me minus 25lbs so far that's half of what I m looking at losing during this challenge. I've got 10 weeks and 25lbs more to go. I think I can do this!! Maybe even a few lbs more if I keep stepping it up like I did this past week I'm so excited at the thought of 50lbs gone by New Years.. I truly will have something to celebrate!!!! Not that it will be over for me I will just be looking for a new challenge and still have atleast 130 more lbs to go. So its gonna be awhile until I get to that but that's okay I know I didn't gain all this over night and I sure can't loose it all over night or in a few months either lol

Okay friends so there's where I m at. Also I think I just might make 1500 minutes of fitness this month, I've calculated if I do an hour a day for the next 5 days I will do it!! And I am gonna do my best to make that 1500 this month!!!

So Best wishes to you all this week!!

what BL did for me last night WooHoo!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Last night was the first one this season I've gotten to watch of BL and boy howdy it moved me... I got on my bike for an hour while lifting weights and keeping my heart range between 76 & 80 % just about the whole hour! I was feeling it!! WooHoo! I m feeling good today! & oh my gosh I can't image 8 hours straight and it surely would take someone yelling at me lol But I would be willing to try lol Okay I say that but I don't know how I would respond to someone yelling at me and being so brass.. the motivation part sure even yelling out motivation but I m so not use to someone yelling and screaming at me, makes me nervous. But I sure wouldn't mind being pushed and motivated!!!

What's the weather doing to you??

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Good Morning to you all... okay so yup forgot to get measured again last night. Gonna do my best to do that today!

And even tho its cloudy, chilly and wet here today I'm starting to feel all happy and giddy.. I think its because of the change in the weather its starting to feel like fall and that means the holidays are coming and I LOVE the holidays especially Christmas!!! And yes I have already started shopping... online.. because one I need to spread the spending out and two there's nothing more that I hate then waiting until the last minute, where it always seems like all the good stuff is gone and there still an abundance of people all doing the same thing and its gets extremely stressful, overwhelming and well just CRAZY. If it were up to my hubby he'd have me wait until Dec. 13 every year because that's when we can put it on our Credit cards and not pay until Feb. Gotta love them men and there ways of thinking.... Right? Like I tell mine its too stressful!!! And just suck it up big boy! Anyways So now if I can just put this giddy feeling into straightening up the house and whatever else needs to be done today I will be doing Great lol

Other than that on the one hand the weather is making me feel all happy and giddy but my body well that's a different story. I m not gonna sit here and complain all I'm gonna say is my body just feels alittle achy. Can't have it all I guess lol But that's just life!

So moving on and thinking maybe I should just turn on some tunes get it all done and then I will feel either alot better or alittle sorer but either way it will be done lol

So to all a Great day! emoticon

    It's rainy, cold, and a bit windy here as well. I can't wait for the holidays. I don't do too much christmas shopping for people. I try to get my bestfriend and her husband something. My dad doesn't let my brother and I get him anything. So it's all about just spending quality time with family for the holidays. It means more than gifts could ever give! Lol. So, it's more money I can spend on myself. Plus, it's a reason to bake for people at work without feeling like I have to eat it all. I can get what I want and make everyone else pack on the calories. Lol. : )

    I love Christmas too. I try not to shop too early or I never stop buying lol. So I start after thanksgiving. I actually enjoy the crowds and craziness. I save the kids stocking till a week before so I cam still shop. I am glad ur enjoying the season I don't really care for winter. It means boys locked up inside and no fun. But I try to make the moat of it. I do like baking in the fall and winter too. Have a great day Tara!
