Damage Control

Monday, January 11, 2010

Yesterday started out as a good day but towards the end I had alot of emotional turmoil. I guess it really does not matter but I realize today that I was focusing on the negative and not the positives of the day. For example, I was focusing on of not being invited to hang out with people when a neighbor stopped by just to chat or that I hit the mark where I lost almost 2 lbs in the week.

Because of my emotional turmoil, I found myself emotional eating.. I knew I was doing it but yet couldn't stop it. It is like watching a train wreck happen but knowing you can't do anything about it. I did eat alot of salt yesterday so I am telling myself that I gained 3 lbs in a day because of the darn salt.

Well, today I will be on the road for most of the day so I am going to do my darned and do my best at eating.. and I think when I get back I may try doing to the elliptical because it will make me happy for many reasons.
1. Endorphins - Do I need to say more? :P
2. Getting back into the exercise routine. (I took a couple days off because my back has been hurting.)
3. The 700-some calories will equal about half a pound the next day.. so I will be going back down again.

Anyhow, I just wanted to blog real quick - I am off to see my newest niece now! She is only a few days old! Yay for that!


Need A Smile? Read This!

Friday, January 08, 2010

I got this joke from JOHNHARNEY. I hope it makes you smile as it did me!



Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flakey at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.


Can a Single Copy of The Spark turn into Wildfire?

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

This morning I read the introduction to The Spark and it got me thinking. Who am I sparking? I think I am slowly sparking my family more than my friends - it feels great! Than, I had a thought.. what if someone brought a single copy of The Spark, read it, kept it for a little bit but than passed it on. I mean how many times does a book get shelved after you read it..?

So, today I am going to buy The Spark, read it and pass it onto a family member. Than, my hope is that they will pass it on and each time we will put our name, location and SP user name. Maybe, even all the people that read this single copy could be friends on SP. How awesome would that be?

    Yeah, I love the book! I read it when I am the elliptical.. it makes the time go so fast that I do not want to get off the darn machine, lol. In fact, the last two days I have done 40 and 60 minutes on the elliptical. As I said, I love the book and I am thinking of re-reading it and than going back and tabbing what I want to in grain on my brain, lol, and it is so motivatiing!!! With that said, I do not know if I CAN pass it on.. I might need encouragement to let the book go but I think it would be interesting to see how far a single Spark go..

Need Help with Determining the Right Goal for Challenge

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Today I signed up for the Superior Fusion 10-Week Weight Loss Challenge which starts tomorrow. I have mixed feelings - excited and nervous! I decided to do this challenge to keep my focus and determination in check. Also, I think it is a great way of staying motivated with support!

There are two pots. In the first pit, the winners are determined by total body mass loss. The top three winners that are placed in first, second and third get $500, $300 and $200, in that order. In the second pot, the winners are determined by most inches loss.

With that said, I know in a similar contest that my friends were in that the winner lost over 12% of their mass. Now, according to those statistics, if I try to lose 13.8% of my body mass, I have to lose 30 lbs in TEN weeks. That is three pounds a WEEK! I already think two pounds a week is intense but THREE pounds! To be honest, I do not even know if I know how to lose three pounds a week besides possessing the drive, determination, and motivation! To be honest, I want to shoot for a higher goal such as 15% so I can make sure I get the 12%.. When I am focused, driven and determined, I can usually do two pounds a week as SP recommends. For this contest, that would be 20 pounds. But that is only like 10% of my body mass...

What do you think my body mass goal should be? 15%? 12%? 10%?


New Year Resolution

Monday, December 28, 2009

With the new year, 2010, approaching, I have noticed my dedication and passion have been burnt out. I just do not care. I am not sure if it is because for the last four days I have had the stomach flu. I think it all comes down to that I love food - all kinds, good and bad. Also, I know I will try to keep losing weight but as of right now, I need to take a sabbatical, a break.

With that in mind, my New Year Resolution for 2010 is to live healthier. This insists of utilizing portion control, eating healthy foods (fruits/veggies), and working out consistently. My one goal for 2010 is to run and compete in 5Ks. In October, my sister, Nicole, and I are going to participate in the CASDA 5K which was my first 5K that I walked. I am very excited to train and participate in it together.

Good luck everyone in 2010 with achieving your goals, big or small!
