Turning 32 on Saturday

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I can safely say that I'm not where I wanted to be at 32. This year has been fantastic with having a new baby so I feel that I'm really happy with the blessings. The drawbacks are my own fault. The fact we have no money is something I blame myself over. Eating too much take-out, buying little things here and there that add up. That and just letting myself get back to almost my starting weight of 2010. It took an entire year of struggles. It was like I was at war with my own body. I was eating the right foods but they were not agreeing with my system and I was sick all the time. I felt sicker at 200 than I did at 255. So weight loss became more about my looks. Eventually I went off program and maintained but I still had to deal with the consequences of eating all that high fiber wheat breads, fruits, milk products, etc. I was on all this medication which included anti-anxiety medication. All this just to lose weight. You can see my fears in dealing with this again.

Oh well, I'm going to work on little adjustments. I've decided to spend some time with the Spark Coach program and begin again with the goals set up by the program. First week is Fast Break. Here are my three goals:

No sweet tea for the week. (I want to see what kind of results that will bring)
Five minutes of cardio at least 5-6 times per day
Watch one inspirational video. I have a list on youtube
Log in and be accountible on Sparkcoach
(One more) 30-60 minutes of walking per day (stroller time with Joey)


I'll try to log my results by next Sunday the 29th. The day after my husband's 33rd birthday. Until then, if you done any walking/running/biking, please let me know your mileage. My friend only has a couple weeks left before the end of the month.

    That is why I really like SP...many of us share the same struggles with weight, financials, life...etc. I really like the idea of inspirational videos. Do you have some to recommend?

    I had a rough year and a half and fell of the wagon as well but I am determined to SLOWLY make changes that don't overwhelm me and allow me to get back on track. We can work on it together.

    Only 2.27 miles today. I had to work all day.
