Wed, 9 Jul 2014 18:57:57 EST Progress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729551 It's been almost 2 months now since I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, told I was Pre-Diabetic, have high Cholesterol, and low Vitamin D. Since then I have majorly over-hauled my diet and have eliminated gluten, all grains, refined sugar, soy, msg, gmo's, artifical colors/flavors, processed foods, basically everything that I can not pronounce or am unsure exactly what it is. lol I lost 10 lbs fairly quickly. I recently started noticing some inflammation (probably due to stress) and decided ... Tue, 1 Jul 2014 04:55:39 EST Simplify http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5711776 Life has been more simplistic as of late. Learning to live with less. It's funny you really realize how much crap you can live without. It's been a very eye opening time. I've had a lot of time to appreciate life, not take anything for granted, and count all my blessings. I've found a faith I didn't even know existed. A new relationship with God and my Guardian Angels. I used to think you had to be religious to have a relationship with God, but I was wrong. We are all God's children and God w... Fri, 6 Jun 2014 02:22:58 EST Day 2 Turbo Jam http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285639 Today was definitely a little easier than yesterday! And I got a little bit farther. I completed LEARN & BURN as per the beginners calendar schedule. Tomorrow is a 20 min workout. I ate breakfast after my workout. Probably not the best choice, but I need to do some grocery shopping. I had a sliced apple and a scrambled egg/bacon sandwich. Was hoping my new book would show up in the mail today, maybe tomorrow. The "60 Seconds To Slim" book I ordered is about learning to balance your body's pH ... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 18:58:07 EST Turbo Jamming http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5284738 Woah! I started Turbo Jam today. Let me note that I have not been exercising for awhile now and am really outta shape. I got through the LEARN segment, which teaches you 12 different moves you need to learn in order to do her workouts. I then proceeded to do the BURN segment. I feel like I barely got through that without dying. I was so outta breathe. I drank a whole glass of water, caught my breathe and started the next segment. I barely got through that one and again I was outta breathe. Dr... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 02:04:08 EST New Approach http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4903023 I feel like I need a new approach to exercise. I believe I put too much pressure on myself when I make undesirable goals such as exercising 5-6 days a week. Instead I am going to try something more doable. I find my body really needs stretching. So I plan to start my days with 5-15 minutes of stretching exercises. Then I am going to go for a 30 minute walk on the mornings that I do not work. If I am working that particular day, I will walk in the evening after dinner. 3 days a week I will do ... Tue, 29 May 2012 15:28:55 EST Happy Memorial Day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4901944 I've been kinda slacking with the diet & exercise lately. Time to step it up! Hubby and I scored well at the fruit stands this weekend. We got watermelon, cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, zucchini, walnuts, red onions & I splurged and got a slice of cherry pie. It was soooo very yummy, but filling so I split it with my son. The strawberries are so juicy and sweet like sugar. I am loving them. My son had his last day of school Friday, so is now off for the summer. Erin has til June 7th. She w... Mon, 28 May 2012 23:10:42 EST BLC Week 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4865171 I wasn't able to track here on my blog for a few days due to my computer crashing. I managed to restore it. Though I am still worried something may be wrong with it. The days I couldn't log on to Spark, I kept a food journal for accountability. I've been exercising every day. It really feels good! Today I stepped up my exercise to include an extra workout. I did: <BR> <BR> Hip Hop Abs - (Fat Burning Cardio) - 30 mins <BR> Hip Hop Abs - (Abs Sculpt) - 25 minutes <BR> <BR> Breakfast - 3 eggs ...

Sun, 22 Apr 2012 16:13:27 EST Shakeology http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4778075 I received my new workout dvds from Beachbody yesterday and included in the order was a free weeks supply of Shakeology (chocolate). I decided to give it a try today. I followed one of the recipes on the recipe card included: Ice, 1 cup of water, 1 cup of strawberries, 2 scoops of powder. Yuck! It didn't taste good at all. I took a couple sips and ended up dumping the rest out. I'm going to try it again tomorrow with soy milk instead. Which is what I normally use when I make smoothies. Hopefu... Thu, 8 Mar 2012 20:22:32 EST Feels like Spring http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4767503 It's feeling like Spring here in Northern California. Everything is so green and the trees are full of almond blossoms. So pretty. Love it! <em>437</em> <BR> <BR> Time for a reality check. I looked in the mirror the other day and realized I did it again. I allowed myself to fall into a stress induced depression and had become anxiety ridden once again. Along with the stress, anxiety, and depression, also came the weight. I've been losing and gaining the same 20lbs for the past 3 years. Tim... Fri, 2 Mar 2012 16:48:18 EST Inspiration http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3374312 I have lost a total of 26 lbs so far. But this past month I have only lost a pound here and there. I lost my inspiration to work out. Though I did manage to maintain my weight, which is good. So...tomorrow I am getting back on schedule. Sunday - Friday 1 hour Hip Hop Abs workouts. Sunday off. I've been riding my bike Monday - Friday for a minimum of 1 hour, which I plan to keep up as well. It seems that the cardio is what burns the fat though. Here's to getting inspired all over again! <...

Tue, 9 Mar 2010 23:14:31 EST Monday's Meals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2975824 I like coming here and keeping track of what I am eating. It definately helps keep me accountable. I am not weighing and measuing everything...nor am I logging each food item into the food log. I am going to try it this way first. If I don't lose weight this way, then I will most likely have to start keeping a caloric count. <BR> <BR> Breakfast: 2 egg omelette w/ baby bella mushrooms & sprinkle of mozz/parm cheese, 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries <BR> <BR> Lunch: peanut butter & peach jelly s...

Thu, 4 Mar 2010 13:55:28 EST Moving http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2017340 <em>214</em> Lately seems like it has been one thing after another around here. Spring is definitely here. So much change going on in my life. We recently found out that we have to move. It has been a little stressful, but I am doing my best to keep a positive outlook and know that things will work out for the best. I am sure once we find a place, that will take some of the worry away. I have a doctor appointment on Monday to have a barium swallow test done to check my esophagus. With the s... Wed, 29 Apr 2009 15:26:09 EST Beautiful Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1936907 <em>67</em> It's so beautiful outside today. The winds have calmed down a bit and the sky is a gorgeous blue. I am feeling much better. I had my second therapy appointment yesterday. It went very well. I really like my therapist. She is easy to talk to and explains things to me in a way I can easily relate. She has really opened my eyes to some bad lifestyle habits I've adapted over the years. I am full of promise, that I can overcome all of this anxiety and stress and turn my life around in... Thu, 2 Apr 2009 13:03:31 EST Taking it Easy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1912132 I haven't been around lately. I've had to scale back and do more relaxing as of late. I let stress get the best of me and have been dealing with some serious anxiety issues. My doctor put me on Xanax and it seems to be helping. Because of all the stress and anxiety I am also dealing with heartburn. So I am taking Pepcid 2x a day for that. I also decided it was best for me to go to counseling. I had my first appointment yesterday. I was a little nervous, but it went by quickly. I go again next... Wed, 25 Mar 2009 14:32:08 EST
