Reclaiming My Journey :))

Friday, January 08, 2010

I updated my page today. Most of what I say here today is also on my page.

I fell of the healthy journey in May 2009 and have gained back 39 of the 52 pounds that I had previously lost in 2009. I am tired of all the yo-yo crap. It's time to get back up, dust myself off and get serious one last time and today starts that time for me :)

My marraige has issues due to my lack of self confidence and lack of sensuality. I fully intend on changing all that. I wil be the "hot little wife" that my hubby tells me that I am, don't believe me...well come back later this year and check it out for yourself. I am more determined than ever to see this to fruition. I have a dear sweet SP friend that claims that there has to be sensuality buried somewhere in me...well now I am out to prove that friend right as well :))

I have not eaten "right" for months. I haven't even been doing any exercises. So, with that all's time to put some goals in place to turn all those bad habits around again :)

* QuickFire EVERYDAY

* Get My Tan On Everyday ( I always feel better about myself with some nice color to my skin)

* Start My c25k program again (yes, from the very beginning)

* Some form of Cardio EVERYDAY

* Strength Training atleast 3 times weekly

* Pamper Myself (got to help with the sensuality, right??!!)

I WILL SUCCEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No entries in a while from you so I'm hoping you did get back on it like you said. It's not easy and we do gain it back sometimes. But we are not our weight, we are who we are inside and when we want to lose weight for our own reasons we can. If for some reason, we don't or haven't... it means nothing except that there were other things going on for us. I'm wondering how you are doing and wanting to let you know although I haven't done wonderfully, you have been and inspirtion to me because you keep picking yourself back up and making decisons, that's what is important. I hope life is good and hope to see a positive entry soon! Keep on truckin!

I am inspired by you. I have been yoyoing myself. The most I ever lost was 125 then regained 80. Last year I lost 40 of the 80 and regained 20. I know what to do, I know that I feel better about myself when I am in control. The only thing I have been consistent with is tracking calories on the good days and the bad days. Keep going, this is going to be a great year for us!

    You're doing amazing, you can do it! 2010 is the year!!

I so hear you on the sensuality/confidence front. My own sensuality has taken a huge hit since gaining a significant amount of weight. I'm finding that not even just loose weight, but working out on a daily basis, getting in touch with my body, has started to open up my fire again. It's been a process for me...

    I know that Wendi is sexy! It's always a work in progress, but you'll work it out. I agree, pampering yourself will help you to feel sexy. And as for the weight, it seems like you have a good, solid plan =)

    Guess what? You are not alone! I started a 2nd job in October and stopped working out altogether. I had planned on January 1st to start again, but got sick. I started working out again this past Thursday. Unfortunately....3 months w/out workouts has really messed me up and i have to start from square one again. Grrrr! I am so mad at myself. I was doing hardcore workouts like ChaLean Extreme and P90X. Oh goes on. We will start again and succeed and not quit. I can guarantee if you keep up with your workouts and eating right and oh yeah....a nicely bronzed will feel sensual like you never have before. Let's do this together!!!!!! We can do it!!!!
Love Sher

    Wendy, you can do this. I am very proud that you have "come clean" and peeled off another layer, actually several, of stuff that has been holding you back. Go for it, my friend. You are so worth the effort.

Oh, yeah, I'm right behind you to kick your booty in gear...just in case the need should present itself - rofl.

  I agree Wendy with everything you said. At one time, I was a very sensual being and I feel I have lost it - can't see it anywhere when I look in the mirror but I believe it is still within. I want to pull it out but I know in order to do that I must get closer to my goal weight.

I know you know that I have been back sliding for the past couple of months but I am "done with that". I plan to post my plan this weekend - it is similar to yours. Thanks for posting and thanks for being a good sparkfriend. I will miss you in the battle but I understand how it is difficult to focus on more than one team at a time - especially while working. Thanks for all you do!

    So inspired to read this post from you today...yes you CAN do all of this, and it'll be fun to celebrate your progress with you as you go :-)

I'll be starting C25K training (but finishing it this time, LOL!) as my February/March monthly challenge, and will register for a 5K just as soon as I find one that fills the bill--so far, the only local ones I can find are within the next month or 2, and I need one in April or May so I'll be ready for it. My sis has agreed to race with me, so that'll be fun (and will also ensure I don't back out, LOL!)

Have a GREAT kick-started weekend!
