Day 600 - WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, November 23, 2012

Today may be Black Friday for some people, but for me, it's DAY 600 of my exercise streak. WOO to my HOO!!! Yeah, baby!!

I decided to walk a personal 5K, in honor of the day and I took you with me. Don't worry, I edited it down. :) But hey, I'm pretty excited about this and I wanted to share it with you. My SparkBuddies are so great at encouraging me and helping me stay on track. Thank YOU for helping me make it to Day 600. It was so worth it.

And guess what? I worked out (interval cardio and strength training) AND stayed within my calorie range on Thanksgiving. That, my friends, is a pre-Christmas miracle. Getting closer and closer to that next big goal. Spark ON, brave Sparkers!

600 Post-it Notes!

The stack has reached the bottom of Wonder Woman Pez's hair

Getting closer to that Wonder Woman goal!

Down 45 lbs!

    I really needed to hear this vlog today. . .don't ever quit doing what you do, because you are making a difference. I listened to the whole thing, and you made so much sense; I have not been consistent, and I need to get after it. My weight has started the upward creep again, and it's up to me to stop that and get to goal. After your pep talk, I feel like I can do anything!

God Bless,
Nancy :)

    So awesome!!! :-) I wanna go buy a pack of post its and start a streak myself, even though I feel like death warmed over! Fortunately for my good sense absence, it is way to late in the evening, and the shop is shut! LOL. BUT, I will make a point of doing that tomorrow. :-)

    I got tears too! Congratulations! Thank you for sharing! I really needed this today!
I want to do it!

I know on most days I can do it too. I am just worried if I get walking pneumonia- like I have the last 3-4 years. Those days I don't think I could do 10 minutes in a row of anything else but breathe and lay. But I guess it doesn't have to 10 minutes in a row- on those days.

Doing the posit notes is a good idea- do you still have all 600? or after so many do you reuse the paper? I suppose if I cut them into little strips it wouldn't be so wasteful. I want to do something where I see it everyday and it keeps me motivated.

    Shelli, Congadulations on this really big achievement. I totally get it about once you start you want to do more. Been there many times. But also I get the 10 minute part on some days. I am in need of getting out there today since it is after the Big Turkey and I reallllllly enjoyed that Turkey day, I was not as faithfull as you on the eating, but I did plan to do it that way also. I did mega work out before TG and now I need to add somemore to burn off all that pie. You motivated me now I gotta go. Hugs and Happy Big 600 day.

    Yeaoooo you are awesome
Your video made me cry, so motivating and you are so happy.

Your daughter made you great 600 post it.

You did well on your Thanksgiving too, just wonderful.
Being down 45 pounds is nothing to sneeze at, that is for sure.

Btw who is doing the video as you walk?

emoticon on 600 days of exercising, your commitment to yourself is what keeps you strong.

Hugs Mary
