Bouncing back

Sunday, December 04, 2011

I had recently miscarried what would be my third child. It was the toughest thing I have ever experienced. Because I had complications during this short pregnancy I did not work out at all. I now have the energy and the mood to get back into working out. In fact, I hit the treadmill today after two months of it sitting dormant. I must say...it felt wonderful. But I could sure tell it had been awhile. I am now focusing on getting my body back to the way it was before I was pregnant, and me and my dear husband will be trying again soon. Totally trusting God in all of this!

    Oh my goodness, Tanya, I am sorry to hear this. Do take care of yourself and let me know when you are trying again and I will be praying.

Love you and miss you. Hugs, Sunny

Woo hoo! I'm doing it!!

Friday, May 08, 2009

It has been two months and I've been working out almost every day! I have made it a fun habit and I cannot believe I never got so into this before. I was seriously missing out! I stopped weighing myself and I started noticing results in the mirror instead. I'm looking pretty good!!!

And, to make it even better, my cousin who said about a month ago that I was getting obsessed just told me last week that he's been working out for the past two weeks! That's awesome! He told me that I inspired him. He said he doesn't have the same drive as me, but you know what? That's fine! You don't have to have the drive right away. I know I didn't. It took me sooooo long to get where I'm at right now. It definitely didn't happen over night. I have that drive now. I love that drive. I love working out. I love how it makes me feel. I love how I'm looking. I have energy. It's just so awesome!!

If any of you out there feel like you can't do it, please keep doing it anyway. Push yourself. See how far you can go. Just take baby steps at first. Before you know it, you'll be where you want to be. You'll have that drive. You'll love the results. You can do it! I'm doing it! It's the greatest feeling in the world! Woo hoo!!!

    A year ago I had so many medical issues I never thought I'd be able to work out. BUt in January I was able to join a gym. I am limited in what I am allowed to do there, but I go every day and give it my all. MOst days I do not want to go, but I always feel refreshed (but exhuasted) afterwards. If I can do this, most anyone can!
Keep up the great work!

Back at it again!

Saturday, March 28, 2009

It has been awhile since I've blogged. Since the last time (not quite a year yet) I have been roller coastering my fitness and nutrition. Some days I do good and some days I do bad. I've lost a little bit of weight, but nothing like I wanted. And it's my fault. I haven't been as serious about it as I should be. So I'm back at it again and this time I'm really going to keep it going. Why should I stop and not be as serious about it when I know that the results are so bad? Everyone knows that working out and eating right are good for the body. So I'm going to do whatever it takes to be healthy. I WANT my energy levels up. I WANT to feel good about myself, inside and out. I want to drop the pounds faster. I only have 25 pounds to go. I lost a little over 10. I can do this! The next time I see my doctor I want her to be proud of my progression. A few months ago, she was happy that my cholesterol went down, but I'm sure she wasn't so happy that I was still overweight. And I'm not either. So I'm sticking with it this time. I have a goal to reach. And the reward of a healthy lifestyle to savor for the rest of my life. What's better than that?!!

  Attitude is so important, and it sounds like you have a good one. I'm in the same rut. It's way too easy to slack off and not do the right thing. Do you have a workout buddy or accountability partner to help keep you on track?
Keep the faith. You can do it!!

Waking up earlier

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

So I've always wanted to get up about a half hour to an hour earlier than scheduled so I can get in some exercise before I have to go to work. Well, this morning I got my chance. My dog woke me up at around 4:45 and I finally got up around 5:00 (I usually get up at 5:30). I got to work out after getting a few things done that needed to get done. Let me tell you...I feel great! They're not kidding around when they say that working out first thing in the morning gives you the much needed energy to get through the day. It is now after 1:00 and I'm still going strong. And another good thing is I can add this morning's workout to this evening's workout and I'll have an even bigger result. Yep, I definitely need to make a habit of waking up earlier so I can get in some exercise before work. This is awesome!

    Hi there, Tanya! My name is Tanya also! I'm 34 years old and am currently stationed in Korea. (USAF) This morning I got up at 4:00 am to go running and it was GREAT!!! I normally don't do that, I work out after work and I usually am so tired I don't do as well. I'm sticking to the early mornings too! Have a blessed night!

Doing well and I thank SP!

Sunday, April 20, 2008

I have a lot to thank SP for. It seems like ever since I went to the Dr. in January and found out that my cholesterol was elevated I got more serious with SP. From January up until now, I've been doing awesome with my fitness. In fact I've become quite obsessed with it. I find the articles very helpful in keeping me motivated as well. I have fallen a little bit with my food but I had found out that I was putting myself in starvation mode. Now that I've found that out and what to do to fix it, I'm back to losing weight. I couldn't do it without the people on SP or any of the articles out there for me to read. SP is just an awesome website and I love it. I find myself spending more time on this website than on MySpace. LOL! I can't wait to go back to the Dr. in June and see her reaction when she sees how much weight I've lost and see that hopefully my cholesterol has lowered to a descent number.

    Spark is a very supportive site, that's for sure! I have only been a part of it for a month but am very glad I discovered it! I, too, would like to thank Spark and all of the fellow Spark people! You're great!
(And.....show that doctor what you're made of! Have a great day!)
