No Longer Complacent ;)


Friday, January 18, 2013

I have been absent from SP for some time. I had become complacent because I was maintaining and not making any progress. I thought after loosing 120 lbs i could just drift along. Which I did for awhile... Then of course Halloween emoticon happened and emoticon Thanksgiving...you get the picture. By the time New Year's emoticon rolled around I had gained a good 11 pounds and my motivation was out the window. I tried a couple of times this month to get started but I always let food win. emoticon

Jan 14th emoticon I took a big step, enrolled in the "Just 10" program at work. It is a program that over 10 weeks is designed to drop 10% of your body weight. I think it should be subtitled the "get real program". We have a personal coach/trainer that we meet weekly with. During these sessions, the program is revealed, followed by exercise. I must say I thought I was active but guess what, NOT EVEN CLOSE! I'm not discouraged, I can only get better. I also have to deal with past surgery/injuries so some modification is in order. Planks are hard to do with my right foot after my surgery and squats hurt my knees. emoticon Homework consists of walking 30 minutes a day, every day and strength exercises are emailed to us.

Wah,wah for me, right? You are thinking get over it Anne. Yep, I am. I am already 5 lbs down since starting. I also think shaking things up with eating and exercise has jumped started my body. I feel like my motivation is back. emoticon I look forward to moving toward my goals and looking good for my daughter's wedding in June. emoticon

One other thing, I gave my coach my password so she can monitor me. emoticon so no trainer bashing here!!! Hi Randi!!!! emoticon emoticon

Have a pleasant weekend my fellow Sparkers!!! emoticon

    Hey, that's actually sounds like fun - to have a personal trainer who keeps you on track!! Glad you jumped in and found something to kick your butt in gear again! And the holidays, they're tough for many of us (me included), but we know how to do this and we will continue in 2013!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Welcome back! I too had become complacent last year and am now trying to be more aware that my goal is to actually lose weight and not just maintain.
