Woo! Hoo! I'm ready to lose....yet, again!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Yes,....I'm ready to lose again! I suppose this may begin with all the right stuff, ideas, and goals and not to forget; all the right tools. So what makes this time any different than the last times. Yes, the last times.

To be honest, there really isn't much different. I still feel the strong internall motivation I acquire for beginning the new year. I still feel the need to acquire even more healthier eating. I still find that a quick trip to the fast food joint makes for a quick meal on the go to be one of my weak points that I would like to defeat. I have many Spark friends cheering me on this journey all the while they understand the ups and downs involved in a weight loss journey. I'm sure there are many single women that understand the feelings involved in wanting to wake up to a significant loving other beside you; yet, find excuses for avoiding still another broken heart. In addition, I've got an array of PHAT photos that should have pushed me to stick toward reaching my goal weight. So what makes this time any different? At this time, I really don't know. I truly don't have an in depth reason or reasons. I KNOW I am important. I KNOW I want to live to see my grandson grow as well as enjoy seeing my adult children reaching their lifestyle goals. I WANT to be around for many life changing accomplishments, experiences, and precious loving moments in life.

I'm not sure what it will REALLY take to reach that ultimate weight goal that I've set for myself, but I do know it's time! It's time to stop making excuses. It's time to find a different means for managing my stress by soothing it with food and especially 32 oz. drink of Dr. Pepper. It's time to bend down easily to tie a shoe. It's time to feel fresh and alive! It's time to avoid the dating scene and get back out there. It's time to give my eldest sister a break from my monthly life rants. It's time to get back that feeling of accomplishment! I need to get back that "I CAN DO IT" spirit. There are many opportunities that have knocked at my door, and I've shut the door along the journey to soothe it, medicate it, remedy it with bandage fixes such as food when I could be adding in the exercise to enrich my endorphins.

Yes, it's time! It's time to renew my commitment to Sparkpeople so that I can get the support I need to push to the finish line.

So, if there are any takers at this time, join me in this January challenge. For January, I've set a goal of pushing for 200 squats a day. Yes, I'll be changing my eating for healthier food choices. I've got my menus filled with winter soups and incorporating cardio also. However, the PUSH activity that I am searching for supporters as I look forward to supporting you with your PUSH activity also.

Thanks to 2013VICTORY, she is up for the challenge and is the first to join. My PUSH activity is to perform 200 squats daily for the month of January. Come along and join this months PUSH activity. Think about an area of your body you'd like to strengthen or improve. Then, post that activity on a blog and I will be sure to visit you often to support you on your journey for the month of January. You don't have to complete the activity all in one sitting. YOu can break it up into small, achievable pieces that you do throughout the day. Tell us about your accomplishments, struggles, and share your experience with photos, videoblogs, or the simple written format. Come on! We can do this; and we will be a successful when we reach out to our SPARKPEOPLE friends for support. emoticon

    What a wonderful, empowering post:) You can do it! WE can do it!

    I'm not sure if I can do 200 squats a day, but I will give it my best. I am currently doing an Insanity/Brazil Butt Lift Hybrid, a plank-a-day challenge (building to 6 minutes), nutritional challenge, plus getting in Zumba, treadmill and ST. I will give it a go unless my knees won't hold up. lol May fall behind posting some days. Usual for me:)

    Great energy and awesome post! I need to do a PUSH activity. I don't think I could physically handle 200 squats but that is a great goal!
