Happy New Year

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I'm so happy to see the beginning of another year. I ended 2012 being 23 pounds lighter than when I started and with a new classification of runner. I'm so happy with the accomplishments I had and I'm looking forward to much more success in 2013. Today I ran in the New Years Resolution Run and set a new personal record. This year is starting off with a bang. Now I know challenges are right around the corner. However, I'm armed with my vision board and ready for the fight. Let's go! emoticon

I Did It!!!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

For several weeks I've been apprehensive about joining a running group because I felt I could not keep up with true runners. Well this morning I completed a 5 mile walk/jog event with BGR (Black Girls Run) in Baltimore. I set a new PR of 15min per mile. When walking/jogging alone my pace was 16min plus a few seconds. I'm so pumped up. Thanks so much ladies for taking good care of a newbie. I'm sorry I waited so long. Running/walking with someone else is better than doing it alone.

I've Finally Had It!

Friday, May 11, 2012

I was so embarrassed yesterday when i had to struggle to buckle my seat belt on the airplane. I had to think of what changed since the last time we flew 2 years ago. Well for starters I'm at least 30 pounds heavier. How could I have let that happen. Well it's quite simple. I commit in the morning to a healthy lifestyle and by noon i've thrown caution to the wind. I have to do things differently because as a neighbor recently said I'm in control. Today i will stay within my Weight Watchers points allotment.

    The key to weight loss is persistence. Eat less move more and just keep plugging! emoticon

Happy New Me!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Today I bid farewell to the old me and will welcome 2012 with open arms and a new attitude. The old me who fell prey to my circumstances will be laid to rest and the new me who needs exercise and healthy food choices will awaken. In 2011 somehow my healthy goals were overthrown by stress and more stress. Well the wake up call was received and I'm ready to hit the pavement running. Why wait until tomorrow? I'm going to start right now. Stationary bike here I come because we have a date. Happy New Me!

  


HELP! I've Fallen Off Track

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Ok, looking in the mirror is very depressing. So what do I do? I have scrambled eggs and a chicken wing for breakfast. What is wrong with me? I know a healthy lifestyle is what I want, then why can't I stay on track. Tomorrow is a new day and another chance for me to make better choices.

    I agree with other posters that your breakfast sounds just fine. Even if you don't think so, it's just one meal.

Track your breakfast and move on to a healthy lunch.

You can do this!

    I think your breakfast sounds fine, too. I personally don't count track except that I have only three plates (or the equivalent) of food each day 5x a week. I have anything except sweets (those are for weekends). So you had your meal. It sounds filling. Perhaps you won't need your morning snack. If you are following a specific food plan, just go right back to it for lunch, and don't be upset any more. Being angry with ourselves after a slip up does not usually work to stop us the next time, so it's a bit of a waste of energy, and is usually part of the cycle of overeating. It doesn't mean all the terrible things we think it means. Keep diverting your thoughts to what you are doing in each moment. Be busy with productive or pleasurable activities! Our lives are much more than food and our bodies. emoticon

    we are all human and have setbacks in our plans. As long as you get back on track you will be fine.

  We all of set backs, slip ups and straight out fall on our faces moments...the best direction is to move forward from it. Forgive yourself and purpose within yourself that from this moment forward you will make better choices. Don't wait for tomorrow start the moment you repent : - ) It's the only way to get back on track. If you wait until tomorrow...tonight you may find yourself more guilty. You are not alone in this...we are all routing for ya!!!

    Your breakfast sounds really good... full of protein :) - Every day is a new chance to get to where you want to go, don't beat yourself up at all and try not to look back - you can't change anything which has already been done.

The first step to accomplishing your goals is recognizing the lil mistakes or stumbles you have had in the past but not letting them bring you down for the today, the now, nor the future.

You can do this :)
