Day 99 and counting

Monday, February 07, 2011

Well I can't believe it. It's day 99 on a struggle that began with a pair of sneakers my son left as he went off to college. I think I put it on to feel closer to him. But it set a fire blazing that ended up in a 37 lb weight lost. I have learned that I can eat and lose weight if I eat right and incorporate exercise in the equation.

I will always be grateful for those sneakers.

I also paid another year for my gym membership. I cant wait for the spring when I can start to put some jog/walk in the equation. I am really motivated to living a healthier life. emoticon
I am going to start adding pictures to my blog, March 1st. when I officially want to lose 40 lbs. That my goal for this month to lose 5.4 lb I am focused and I will start putting some make-up on my face each morning. If I am losing I need to show it outside too.

Can You Spell TIRED Day 87

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Did a 670 Calorie burn. It was slow but I did it. Slow and steady wins the race. LOL. Plus I did 3 reps of ten on the macine that you open and close your leg. I don't know all the machines yet. I am like a baby adventuring into the unknown. I try something new each week.
Meeting people is also becoming one of the perks of working out.

When one door closes a window opens.
Two people are rotating bringing me home. Also, I ask for one of them to pick me up early Saturday morning.

I will try to get a car by Febuary because living without a car is costly.
Well going to take a bath and hit the bed now. Good night Spark Friends
Thanks for all the encouragement and support.

Persevere Day 86

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

That what I call it. I am persevering. Life is busy but the other option sucks. So I persevered. I went the extra mile to make sure my body is being taken care of. I dont think I drunk all my water but I tried.
Worked 10 hours but still found time to excercise. I was in slow motion on the elliptical but I did it. I persevered. Burning calories is burning calories regardless if you do it fast or slow. emoticon
