Getting Sexified Day 2,Staying Serious Day 38

Thursday, April 15, 2010

I'm feeling good today and I'm happy about this. It's been a semi rough week but I'm hanging in. My life has been filled with so many blessings from God-my health, my Mom, my daughter, my friends-both here on Sparkpeople and live & in person emoticon, a roof over my head, my job, my car and so many other things that I take for granted. Well I'm back and I'm moving forward.

Yesterday, I did not get to the store to buy ice cream substitutions. I believe that God made those cravings go away as I haven't wanted any ice cream since yesterday's craving and I haven't had any since Monday night.

My work day is almost over. Today I've had:
Breakfast: 2 bacon breakfast burritos, a banana
Snack: Not really but 4 pieces of Starburst candy
Lunch: a portabella mushroom sandwich, a bag of doritos & an orange
Late afternoon meal: Guacamole salad (cherry tomatoes, black beans, jalapeno peppers, red & orange peppers, red onions, garlic, corn, and avocado all chopped up & mixed together in lime juice & olive oil) and I will have a Clif bar on the way home to tide me over in traffic.

I've had about 48 oz and I'm sure I'll get at least 64-80oz total for the day with my workout. I've been checking my Fitbit to make sure I am getting those steps in. I've walked up & down the hall quite a number of times today. Part of the reason I want to change careers is because currently I'm sitting entirely too much. It would be more conducive to my weight loss journey if I was more active!

Now all that's missing for my Sexifiedness to be boosted is my exercise and then I can say like on Em's cartoon Special Agent Oso: "Mission Completion" emoticon Tonight, I may let Emma pick out what exercise dvd I will do. I would prefer to try and do an hour workout but I will be happy with whatever amount I am able to complete. It's all about da steps you know! emoticon BABY STEPS! One foot in front of the other!

WE CAN DO THIS emoticon emoticon

    Isn't it amazing when those cravings just seem to disappear? (Too bad they come back again!) You are in such a better place than a few days ago, sounds like. I'm happy about that. Use all that God has given you to make yourself the way you want to be, Simone! You can do what you put your mind know it and we know it!

    I always love a good reminder of everything I should be thankful for - things we normally take for granted. Thanks for the reminder - and good work on getting sexified! =)

    LOL I never realized how little I walked (on the job) until I bought my fitbit. I am definitely up moving more -- intentionally! Glad your ice cream cravings went away!!

    Glad to hear you're feeling better! You are very blessed and that's great that you realize this! Many people take having a car or home for granted. God blesses us in so many ways, and has blessed me with having you as a Spark Friend! emoticon
