So here I go again and this time baby I'm BULLETPROOF...

Friday, August 30, 2013

I am going to do this... I can do this... This is not going to defeat me or break me... I'm an overcomer! Thanks to Mandisa and LaRoux for the take on their lyrics.
I have been too easily defeated by my attitude in the past and my defeatest attitude... but this time I will succeed. I am doing this for me and me alone (well, okay, my kids and my husband are certainly motivators), but I have to make me happy or I cannot make anyone else happy. (and probably just the opposite)
So, let's do this... let's get that heart pumping and those muscles toning... if you miss a day, SO WHAT! Pick yourself back up the next and move forward with it never looking to the past, but keeping focused on the new you...
LET's BOOGIE! emoticon

    Same place I'm in right now. the key is to feel that passion and remember everything you just stated everyday in every moment.

You can do this. If you mess up one day, just start again.

Back in the saddle again...

Monday, October 26, 2009

Well, I have not been on here since April, hard to believe I let so much time go by without keeping up with Spark. In the time since I left off, things have been crazy... But no excuses, need to get on with it and move forward and not dwell on what I didn't accomplish, but look forward to what I am going to accomplish.
I am going to accomplish this, I can and I will overcome my insecurities and feelings of not being good enough or pretty enough or strong enough. This is a life change not a diet for me. I don't really need to lose any weight, but I do need to get in shape and be able to run and play with my kids without being winded, and I need to be able to look myself in the mirror and know that I did the best that I could for that day be what it may be, it was my best and I will not dwell on waht it was or wasn't for that day as that day is over and I must move forward to the next knowing that I will do my best then too. Will I have days that I falter, sure I will, but I will succeed one day at a time.

    Welcome back! It's great to "see" you again. Remember to take it slow and steady as it is, as you said, a lifestyle change not a diet.

I am sick.....

Friday, February 20, 2009

K... so, I haven't been blogging mostly because I have had the stomach bug since Valentine's Day... went to work on Monday for a 12.5 hour day, was feeling better, but since then, not so good... can't eat anything without feeling junky afterward... YUCK! Anyhow, obviously not much activity going on here aside from getting up to get the kids stuff about every 5 minutes :) Glad to see all of you are still doing well... hopefully I will be back on my feet soon :)

Sorry for my lapse of blogging...

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

K... so I didn't gain any weight, but am feeling pretty icky! I am still dancing around a bit, but right now swimming in a sea of paperwork! So my dancing is from a seated position most of the time... you've heard of crocadile rock right? :)! Anyway, love you all and really enjoy reading that you are all on an amazing journey... keep up the good work!

    You are doing fabulously, even if you did not lose any weight!!! I think that at the very least, all the paperwork counts as a mental workout - right???? Keep it up, and we will get you dancing again in no time, and remember that this time next year, you will not have ANY of that paperwork!!!!!!!!!!!! Love ya!

Back to the frozen tundra...and the chaos

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Ho, hum... we're back to our daily chaotic lives... got here at about midnight Wed (thurs a.m)... Mike had to work Thursday, kept the kids home we were all exhausted... my girlfriend had to bring her two to our house that night... poop... clean... long story :)... had the extra's until about 9 pm Friday, but my girlfriend got great news, which made it totally worth my exhaustion... Did make it to dance class on Friday and had my butt kicked for an hour straight... Saturday had to go get my dogs' ashes... had her creamated since I was away and can't bury her now anyway... tears... snot... then to get 536 pics developed at Sam's club... put all into mini albums so that finger prints don't get all over them... out Saturday night to watch a band with my girlfriend Teenya... lots of fun... home by midnight... off to church this a.m. then did a workout... now have to get ready for a superbowl party at our house tonight... welcome back to the chaos that is the Baxter house...
