It's a journey not a destination well it is a destination too....

Monday, May 05, 2014

I do have goals. I want to get down under 160 pounds. I want to get outside more.
I want to continue to eat clean. I know I have a long way to go.

I did not make any progress this week in my weight. In fact, I gained a pound back. Yet... I think my mind is getting into a better place. I feel more positive and I feel like I am gearing up a little more.

I am riding the exercise bike each morning for 35 minutes. I watched a motivation video here on Spark about getting up early and made me smile because I feel tired like that when I wake up at 5:30 so I can get that workout in.

I am walking some afternoons for another 30 more or less. Today I walked for 50. I love being outside after spending so many years on the couch because of my knees. I am doing one set of several weight exercise albeit at very light weights.

It was a good week. I may not have lost any weight, but I I feel like I did take some steps in the right direction and that my journey is on the right path. I hope yours is too.

    wOW, GOING AT YOUR WEIGHT LIKE A WARRIOR! emoticon
NOW LEARN TO EAT HEALTHY, AND JOURNAL YOUR PLAN AHEAD SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR ARE EATING. I KNOW YOU WILL MAKE IT, BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE REALLY TRYING HARD. iT TAKES BABY STEPS TO LEARN IT ALL, AND MANY TIMES WE ALL FALL, JUST KEEP PICKING YOURSELF UP, GREAT JOB SO FAR. I AM HAVING PROBLEMS BRINGING MYSWELF UP TO THAT LEVEL OF EXERCISE, BUT I AM DOUING THE FOOD THING, BUT IT'S HARD, CAUSE I STILL HAVE A HARD TIME WITH STRESS EATING. EVA

    Sounds like a very positive week! The scale doesn't always do what it's supposed too, but as long as you are then it will have to cooperate at some point. Just keep on your healthy path!

Over the hump.

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Wednesday is pretty much in the books. I logged all my food for
today again, and logged most of my food for tomorrow again too. Walked for 6 minutes and
rode the exercise bike for 35. Did a short abs video too. Well... going to have a quick snack and
then off to bed. Really tired today. Glad tomorrow will be Thursday.

Back to School and still on track.

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Went back to teaching today and was able to stay on track.
Did all my food tracking.
40 minutes on the exercise bike.
5 minute ab workout-one I found on youtube with no getting on the floor.
Getting up off the floor after two knee replacements=not fun, at least not yet anyway.
5 minute brisk walk in the backyard per the Spark beginner guide to walking.
I have all my food except whatever veggies for tomorrow night already logged for tomorrow.
We are going to try a slow cooker salsa chicken Spark recipe tomorrow.
Have a great day tomorrow everyone.

End of Spring Break so back to work

Monday, March 31, 2014

Tomorrow will be back to work for me. I've been off for a week for Spring Break.
I teach third grade and love it, but I'm a little worried I won't stick with my
routine of logging in all my food. I'm logging in some of it tonight to stay ahead.
I will ride the exercise bike in the morning for 30-40 minutes before school so
I should be ok that way. I'm doing a quick 6 minutes abs video with my wife in
the evening and hope to continue that. Bought some new walking shoes today and
can't wait until my shins feel better and I can get back to walking. They actually feel a lot better already. Have a good day tomorrow everyone.

    Sounds like you have a very nice job. I hope you survive those shoes. usually walking shoes doesn't mean walking. they are just for standing in, when you walk for exercise , or do a mile in shoes, you need the inside to be almost ortho-pedic. you could step in to a foot doctor right now, buy their expensive shoes, have him write you a prescription for them, and take it off your taxes. eva
