What a Day ! !

Sunday, May 17, 2009

My spark sisters and I took on a challange this wekend to hike at a place called Bushkill Falls. It is a beautiful place that they call the Niagara of Pa.

Well sister Dottie said lets take the "The Red Trail". So we did. As we started down the "First set of stairs" I just stood ther and said OH MY GOD. To make a long story short many years a go I fractured my ankle, and I didn't feel like my ankle was strong enough to complete the trail.

Well you know what I did, I completed the Hike, the pedometer said over 3.5 miles and we did over 1267 steps. My ankle was fine it started hurting arount the last 30 steps.

It was well worth seeing how much stronger I have gotten throughout my journey and I am glad to have my spark girls with me.

Here are a few pictures......

This is me at the Brides Maids Falls

    Looks like a beautiful spot! Glad you made the hike! You must be so proud of yourself! Isn't it more enjoyable when we have a pretty place to walk? We did a similar thing this weekend and saw 2 deer about 20 ft away (see my blog for more info). Makes my heart leap when I think of the day of memories we created and never would have if not for trying to get healthy! YAH!

The scale has moved..

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Well I have not done any weight training and I'm dying here but guess what the scale moved.
The scale moved 3.8 lbs. So I am going to hold off on the weight training just a tad longer and see what happens.

Changed up my cardio, eating enough calories and drinking my water.

Wish me luck for the next weigh in!!!

A Rough 2 weeks

Saturday, May 09, 2009

Its been a rough 2 weeks. The scale has not moved. But the clothes are getting bigger. emoticon

SO it is time to change up my work out routine, I have been band from my weight training circuit. My sister has instructed me not to do any weight training this week. (she's killing me here LOL LOL) I am probably one of the only people that actually enjoy it.

So I have decided to add extra cardio to my routine So its 65 minutes on the ETD and about another 20 minutes to 30 minutes on something else. (What I am not sure)

I am finely doing well with drinking all my water but still having a rough time making it to the low end of my calories. I have been reading some articles that I think may help me a bit.

So you all will have to wait a little longer to buy tickets to the gun show emoticon they are locked away for now HA HA .

To all the Moms out there Happy Mothers day! !

A personal achievement!!!!

Monday, May 04, 2009

Ok I am going to give you all a good chuckle...

Every time my sister and I go to the gym, she sweats like its her job. She has a wet spot down to the middle of her back and also in the front to the middle of her chest. (you get the picture)

Now for me I sweat a lot it trickles down my face and the back of my neck. After the work out I always joke around with my sister and say Hey do I have a wet mark on the back of my shirt? and she always says no, but I always say feel I'm wet.

Well tonight I was actually sweating enough that when I asked her she said she could see one around my neck. I tried to get her to feel it but she wouldn't.

So that is my personal achievement, it makes me feel like I really worked out.

Hope I gave you all a little chuckle?

Good night all



Weigh In Day Again ! !

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Today was the official weigh in and I am down another 2.5 lbs. After weighing in today I said to my sister I can't believe it I am only 13lbs away from my first goal. Once I meet that goal I do have another one, but I am not going to count my chickens before they are hatched. One day at a time....

Over the weekend my sister brought the containers of summer clothes down from the attic. I was thinking oh no when we put them away I was barely fitting in them. Well to my surprise , everything fit not just fit they fit nice.

Now you have to picture this we have summer clothes out and winter clothes thanks to this unpredictable weather.
I have a pile of clothes that are just WAY to big to wear, I have a pile of clothes that are a little big but I can still get by and then another pile of clothes that are just a TAD to tight.
Give me another week and those TAD to tight will be just fine.

You know what I bought a bathing suit for Mexico, I think I may have to buy another one... Its too BIG........OH NO

Until the next weigh in......

Spark on......
