I did it!!!!

Sunday, May 09, 2010

It's funny because it seems like everything is trying to get in the way of my exercising, I had a flat tire this morning and no one wanted to help me fix it. The good thing is that my daughter has a car and I was able to use hers. I am so happy I didn't just say forget and not go. I went and I worked out for about 1.5 hours. I did it, I had an obstacle in my way and I made the right decision. Now I have to make sure that I continue to run the obstacles that get in my way over. Tomorrows another day. Wish me luck.

Here we go again

Friday, May 07, 2010

So I thought that when I updated my screen that I was going to be able to stick with the program. Boy am I disappointed. I haven't worked out since my sisters wedding in August last year. Not only that but I weighed myself at the gym just to discover that I am a whopping 263lbs. Needless to say I am devastated. The good news is that I have finally went back to the gym and I worked out 6 days this week. It's been hard but I know that in order for me to get on track I need to push through the hard days. I also know that I have to take it one day at a time. Temptation is always surrounding me. A couple of my co-workers and I decided that we were going to to eat healthy together and we've been doing that for two weeks now. I was nerves last weekend though because I didn't have anyone to guide me but of course I pulled out just fine, I didn't give in to temptation. My original goal was to not weigh myself again until 10/10 but I let a friend talk me into weighing in on the 15th but after that I will not weigh in again until October. I think I like the idea of letting the clothes be the judge and I have started planning a vacation to Jamaica for 9/11 (I think that will be a great reward once I reached my goal, whatever that is). One area that I really need to start working at is getting more sleep. Oh well sparkpeople fam, I really didn't want too but I think I'm going to update my page again. Oh by the way, although I will not be weighing myself of a regular basis I will be taking picture once or twice a month but I wont start posting them until 8/10.

Weddings and Vacations for 2009

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

Well I've finally managed to figure out some of my vacation plans for next year. We (my sister and cousin) were originally supposed to go to Hawaii in September. Then that changed to Jamaica instead. That all sounded good at the time but then we found out that September is not the best time of the year to go to Jamaica. So now our plans are as follows. We will be going to Vegas in May for 4 nights for one of my other cousins and then in September we will be going to Texas to see another cousin for a week. So I'm happy that's all taking care of. Now, the weddings. My brother will be getting married at the beginning of April and one of my sisters will be getting married at the end of August. Needless to say I want to make sure I am looking good and feeling better for all these events so it's time to put the pedal to the medal and take care of my business. It's going to be hard at first but once I completely make this life altering change I'm positive it will become easier. The best part of this journey is that I have my loving family and my new spark family to back me up. Well I guess I need to stop chating so much and get ready to go for my afternoon walk, but I'll be back.

  


Need to vent on other issues

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Ok so I'm on the right path and what happens. I go to the store to purchase the healthy snacks for work this morning and my debit card is rejected. Imagine my surprise when I call the bank and they tell me that there was a transaction that was pre-authorized on my account for $400. Not only did I not authorize this transaction but I am completely cleaned out. Oh did I mention that I also have beed charged two overdraft fees for $35 each. All the bank can do at this point is investigate and once it's all cleared up they'll reverse the other charges ($70) along with the $400. Now I'm sitting here stressed out trying to figure out how to pay my car note and how I'm going to be able to purchase food. Needless to say I haven't walked today because I've been on the phone all day. Im still going to try and get Turbo Jam in though. Oh well I just wanted to vent for a moment and say how things always happen to try and stop you from getting what needs to be done (a workout). I will not give in to this mishap.

    Oh no! That's terrible. I'm sure once the bank realizes it wasn't your fault they will totally get rid of the overdraft fees. They are usually pretty understanding. Hopefully things get cleared up soon!

Life back on track

Monday, August 18, 2008

Ok so it took me like forever to get it together. I finally went walking on my morning break and I plan to do the same this afternoon. I have not worked out at the gym in like forever. I decided that I would start off slow so that I don't become overwhelmed. So this is the plan. I'll walk on both breaks and do Turbo Jam 4 nights this week. I think I'll follow this plan for about two weeks and then hit the gym. I think my bigger issue is eating. My brother moved in and he's always cooking for the house. The boy can cook very well, in fact I call him chef boy r Nate. What makes this situation worse is that he always cooks late. I guess I'm going to have to learn how to say no. He's trying to become a healthier person as well so maybe I'll step into the kitchen and show him how to prepare tasty but healthy foods. Well I must say being out of sink for so long has been horrible on my body and I see that now. I have chest pains from time to time and my heart flutters every so often. Not to mention the lower back pains. I know this is going to be a struggle but I'm looking forward to the big payoff.
