Time really flys when your having fun. I am loving this weather and getting out in the yard. In the middle of building a fountain right now and hopefully it comes out the way I want it too....
Been real busy with working overtime, taking care of grand daughter, and doing things around the house.
Have been getting the eating back to somewhat under control, and the scale is moving slowly again. Still getting in my exercise every morning as well.
Better get out in that yard before it starts getting too hot.
Happy Memorial day weekend to you all!

So I thought it time for me to update my spark page and get back down to business! I have moved all my updates to this blog and in the future all my updates will be blogs. I will use my page for my fitness and nutrition and over all inspirations. It is kinda neat to read through where I have been and where I am going. When I look at the list at the end I still have some work to do. Like I said it is time to get serious again.

Hi my name is Toni. I recently quit smoking (Yeah for Me!) but gained 40 pounds in doing so. I was 20 pounds over weight as it was, so this did not help. Now that I am over the major hurdles of quiting smoking, I am ready to concentrate on my weight and have a new totaly healthy life!

That was then...
While I am still darn proud of my accomplishment of quitting smoking, After being on SP for the last 6 weeks, my thoughts toward being healthy have increased so much. When I started this journey it was to lose the weight. It still is, don't get me wrong, but along the way I have learned the importance of permenant life changes. I have made some really good friends on SP and have a tremendous support system. Thank You All of You!
I am going to list my goals. Make them reachable. and celebrate my accomplishments one at a time. One day at at time! Though I have worked really hard not to have any bad days.. it is inevitable. Just got to rememeber to brush it off and keep going. Don't give into the old feelining of well I blew it... might as well wait until I can do this right for good.

WOW - over 30 pounds gone forever. I am half way to my original goal of 60 pounds. As I go on this journey, I now feel that when I reach that goal, I will go farther.
With the winter months coming up fast, I hope that I am able to stay active enough to keep it going. I have re-evaluated my exercise program for the winter and feel that I will be able to control it. I have the treadmill, so even if outdoor conditions do now allow me to take me walks, I can on the treadmill. So there will be no excuses on not doing it. In fact I am hoping to beable to increase my speed and time over the winter. Get more running in and build up my time there as well. So there we have it, my winter goal is to remain active and increase my activity levels. Now that it is down for all to see, I know I will stick to it. Again Thank you all for your support and encouragement. We are all in this together.

Wow... 6 months! Alot has happened in 6 months. The most important is my health. I have had some minor set backs these past few weeks, but determined to get back at it. I know the holidays are upon us... not the best time of year for remashing the button, but yet the best time of year. I have to stay in control. I will succeed. Though I have had my set backs, I will not let it stop me. In the past I would have given up, not now. That is one of the most important lessons I have learned these past 6 months. Every day is a new day! We don't give up, we just get up and keep going! Thank you Spark People for teaching me that. Thank you to all my wonderful friends here on SP that help me daily with your inspiration and commintment. We are all in this together. We are all Worth it!
January 1, 2009 HAPPY NEW YEAR!
A start of a brand new year.... after last years accomplishments it leaves me to wonder where do I go from here. I do know I will continue on my journey and continue to lose the weight and stay healthy. That is a given. I am on this journey for life!
One of my main goals for 2009 is to be able to run in a 5K race/run. Everyday I am improving my time and distance and can push myself even harder. I have had some of the usual set backs that many of us encounter... Illness (cold and flu season), Planter Facitis (slowed me down but did not stop me!), Teeth... but through it all I have stayed active and accountable and that my friends is due in part to you! Your constant encouragement and support has seen me through it all!
So here are the numbers that start out 2009...
Weight - 181.8
Waist - 33"
Chest - 42"
Legs - Thigh 21" / Knee 18" / Calf 16"
Upper Arms - 12.5"
I dropped 3 pant sized in 2008! and 2 shirt sizes! That is alot of inches lost. I wish I would have kept better track of the inches from the beginning...

Been a while since I have blogged... Time is sneaking past me already this year. This time of year we are doing taxes, fileing away the previous year and just over all getting our bearings. We started the year out gung ho ready to kick things back into gear after the holidays. For the most part I have done that. I have caught up on all the behind paperwork (now to keep on top of it), I have increased my exercising, done with taxes, got all the clients quarter and year end paperwork done... but at the same time, I have not been great in the nutrtion side of things. Havn't been horrible, but for some reason the past couple weeks, I have been honestly hungry ALOT. Not sure what is going on... I have been eating alot more carbs as well. Something I thought I had control of. I guess some where along the line my body is craving energy, even if it is superficial carbs. Sure make me crash early in the evenings. I am forcing myself to exercise (glad that I do) but still tired. So I guess my next step is to grab control of the this. It is so much easier in the summer when the days are longer and you can get out doors and be active longer. I miss taking walks to the park with Lacey and playing on the slides (wee's as she calls them). I look forward to those days again. I know she is getting tired of staying in the house all the time as well. She has enough energy inside her to light the whole city...LOL Last night my son said she must have red bull running in her blood...LOL
Anyway I guess with all this rambling, I am saying that I am doing good in some areas, and need to get back to basics in others, that is what this whole life change thing is about right?
