This last week has been pretty uneventful. I started my new summer job and was trying to get used to the new drive and schedule. Pics and numbers and of course plan of action tomorrow! Hope everyone is doing well!! <BR> <BR> lots of love! <BR> *Lori~* Sat, 1 Jun 2013 18:44:29 EST Figuring Out Stuff http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5362593 Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I have been busy, busy, busy the last three months and a lot of things have happened. For instance, my wonderful boyfriend of almost four years walked out and quit his job. (finally!! :)) I got a promotion for the following school year so that's exciting but also a huge motivator to get myself healthy. Which it HAS to happen. I am so glad it is almost summer vacation for me and my new summer job has a bit more flexible hours so I have no excuse to not workout and focus... Mon, 20 May 2013 18:04:59 EST I Might Actually Like Running?! lol http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5293536 Good morning everyone! <BR> <BR> As some of you know I have been going to a group fitness class every Tuesday and Thursday, it's been hard but it also has been fun! I mentioned this before many, many times, I really do not like running. I really didn't like running as a kid and really don't like it now.... so I thought. For our class during the first half hour we do cardio which usually 99% of the time is running and my trainer times us. Every time I/we run he keeps track of our time and my ... Wed, 20 Mar 2013 10:28:06 EST I Added My Trainer To My Friends List http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5292751 I have been recently working in the building but needed a sub to cover me. The sub and I discovered we had a lot in common one of them being the fact we go to the same gym. This afternoon we were talking about what we planned on doing after work today and I mentioned my TEAM class. She was asking me who my trainer was and I had to go show her I picture on facebook. He wasn't on my friend's list before so after my sub left I decided to add him which instantly made me realize how much more acco... Tue, 19 Mar 2013 18:23:32 EST Almost down to week 3! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5268488 Hi everyone!! <BR> <BR> It's almost week 3 in my 90 day challenge! I have been going to the gym every Tuesday and Thursday for my group fitness class called T.E.A.M. My trainer has us running for about a half hour and keeps track of our best time. Now if you know me, I really don't like running so I have my phone or iPod with me to distract me from pains and the time on my treadmill. My trainer went around and told us the time we had to beat from last time and I heard 14:21 so I made it my g... Fri, 1 Mar 2013 11:51:20 EST Doing well so far! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5251857 Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> Ever since I started my challenge, I have been inspring people at work to eat better. For example, someone decided to put 7 boxes of girl scout cookies in the lounge and I avoided them like the plague. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Girl Scout cookies but since I want to do well on the challenge I wasn't really tempted by them. <BR> .... Well, honestly, I was a little but I had to remind myself about the prizes. lol <BR> <BR> One of my co-workers is also trying to lose we...

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 15:53:34 EST Juice taste http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220029 The juice I made yesterday was pretty good! I hardly tasted the vegetables but then again I like celery. <BR> <BR> So far since I first weighed myself at my mom's house in the beginning of the month, I lost five pounds! That's just by watching what I'm eating and not drinking soda. Just imagine if I actually got serious like I did last year! Don't worry it's going to happen, like I mentioned in an earlier blog, it's a baby step process. February 9th is start of serious training and such. <B...

The first time I heard about chia seeds immediately the first thought I had was the chia pet! lol According to my nutritionist, I shouldn't be taking flax seed so I started to do research on my own on what "superfood" I could take alongside my fresh juices. I watched Hunger for Change and they mentioned the chia seeds and some benefits that...

Opinions?? <BR> <BR> *************************** <BR> <BR> <BR> I agree that a lot of people are obese in this country and giving them opitions is important BUT a lot of the regular sodas have HFCS and the diet sodas have aspertame which are both bad for you.

Fri, 18 Jan 2013 11:36:31 EST Update! I made a decision on what challenge I'm going to do!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5211386 <em>213</em> <BR> Morning everyone! <BR> <BR> Tuesday I wrote a quick blog about how I wanted to do two different challenges and I have come to a decision. I decided to do the 90 day challenge at the gym mainly due to the fact that I couldn't find anyone else that was as motivated as I am to do the work biggest loser challenge. For those who don't know, I work at a school and so does my mom, I called her up and asked her if she was interested doing the work challenge with me alongside wit... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 11:01:32 EST Shows and Documentaries I REALLY RECOMMEND watching!

Biggest Loser- <BR> <BR> I got introduced to the show by my friend SINGAWOLFSONG aka Linda back in 2006ish. There's a lot of things I like about the show such as getting to know the show's contestants and seeing their journey progress as the show goes on. There are also things... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 13:02:12 EST Weight loss challenges??? Should I do it?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5208592 I want opinions on this, there are TWO weight loss incentives going on and they seem tempting to me. <BR> <BR> The first one is one I have mentioned before, it is the 90 Day Challenge at my gym. I want to do it, and it costs about 20 dollars to enroll. The club winners get a free year pass to the gym (pretty nice!) and the national winners win a trip to Hawaii and TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! The last winners of the weight loss challenge over 27% of their body weight though... so it's going to b...

Quick video! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205060 Just a quick video Sun, 13 Jan 2013 13:29:25 EST Pedometer at Work Update- What?! You want ME to be a leader?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5108799 Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I mentioned last time about the free pedometer program at work and there is a step challenge going to start this week. I am all about challenges and stuff (I love competition!) so I asked the person in charge of the health stuff in our building if he was going to start the pedo team. He takes one long look at me and smiles and says," Hmm Lori... I think you should do it! You have that fire in your eyes and I think you'd make a better leader for the team than I would so... Mon, 22 Oct 2012 17:38:07 EST Um.. free pedometers and free weight loss incentives?? Sign me up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5101671 Let me just say what a great time to be at work right now! We had this pedometer program for a while now and sometime last year I lost my pedometer. I was really bummed about it and in order to replace the pedometers you have to pay $40 which is just a lot of money. Just recently the people at work announced the new pedometer program and mentioned if you lost your pedometer that you can get a new one for FREE! <em>244</em> <em>224</em> <em>248</em> <BR> Not only that but they have p... Tue, 16 Oct 2012 18:33:14 EST Changes Need To Happen! SUPPORT! YAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5088211 It is so important when you are making changes in your life that you have to be positive and keep the fire alive in your heart and soul in order to succeed. BUT often or not, there are just those negative people in your life that you absolutely cannot avoid and you have to stay focused. <em>386</em> <BR> For example, I made the small change (every small change counts!!) of drinking coffee with tons of sugar, flavored creamer, and half &half to straight black coffee. <em>106</em> Folks ... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 18:04:06 EST Hello again! How are you?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5075852 Hi everyone! It's has been a LONG time since I've been here but trust me I am a HUGE believer that everything thing happens for a reason (more on that later) and I am ready to talk about things that have occurred in my life. <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> First off, I had this ENORMOUS plan to do the Body Revolution and what not and as soon as I started my summer job..... POOF!! EVERYTHING went downhill. The environment was the most negative that I have ever seen my entire life and I was spending...

WOOOOO I am so excited to try it out!! I'm going to start on Sunday plus I am going to my trainer once a week. I'm also looking into going into some group classes and get myself into a routine again. On top of that I am following this diet that the BR came with. AND I'm doing this challenge that Anton from Biggest Loser posted on Facebook about having NO fried foods, NO white flour and NO sugar. <BR> <BR> Whew..... I hope with me working out practically ...

After a good ten minutes, I finally decided I had nothing to lose and sent my personal trainer a message. <BR> <BR> To-Ryan <BR> <BR> <BR> sooooo I'm alive and well just wanted to let you know... on another ... Mon, 14 May 2012 12:59:25 EST I really need to start sleeping more! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4821883 I keep staying up late and because of that I don't get enough sleep. I was thinking to myself that if I want to reach my goal that I need to really step it up. Last month we ( my boyfriend and I) have been eating out a lot but I made sure that I bought a ton of groceries this month so we had food stocked in the house. I also need to drink more water and that is an easy fix because I just have to go and clean out my water bottle. *sigh* I know this isn't the update blog I want to do but if I w...

I have been doing well so far, I have been taking vitamins, and fish oil. I'm really excited to see how well I do in the competition. There are some really great prizes but all it matters to me is that I reach my goal of 25 pounds lost. <BR> <BR> Working out with my trainer has been really fun.

I'm still working out with my personal trainer, my workouts have been hard and intense but I'm able to do it. By the end of my workout, I keep getting more and more sweat pouring off me. Feels pretty amazing. My sister decided to join the gym that I go to so it's pretty exciting since before she was very unsupportive of my weight loss. For her to join and be supportive, even doing some classes with me...

I felt it was time to finally do an update, so I have been going to the gym and I am starting to see some changes in my body finally. The scale has been weird but I'm taking the measurements more seriously than my actual weight. I'm also taking into account that I see (and others have been seeing) differences in my body, such as my butt and my waist. (Which I should take a picture of body soon so you guys can see...) Not only that, but my new B.C pills have also been making my br... Wed, 16 Nov 2011 16:08:07 EST Yay a new month coming up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4557526 I never realized of my weight loss journey depending on the cooperation of one my roommates. How? Well, everytime I try to go to bed early like at nine or eight o'clock, my roommate wakes me up in the middle of the night or he won't let me sleep because he is being extremely loud on his computer. It is really frustrating because I need my full eight hours of sleep to function and when he is being inconsiderate like this it doesn't help me at all. AND because of him, we don't have the heater o... Fri, 28 Oct 2011 13:52:10 EST Yay! I actually RAN on the treadmill! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4530437 Yesterday, after a week of not going to the gym because I was super sick, I was looking forward to working out with Ryan, my PT. Recently he got a new client at three o'clock and sometimes it runs a little bit into my time with him because he has to go to the restroom really quick. So what he has me do is warm up on the treadmill and for the most part I'd walk really fast on a 3.5 incline, 3.8 miles an hour but for some reason yesterday I felt like for once that I could actually run on the tr... Tue, 11 Oct 2011 14:19:30 EST You need to lose weight, drink more water http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4513481 Last week I mentioned how I have to go to the doctors and get blood tests. Everything from the blood tests turned out fine <em>244</em> I'm not sure if I mentioned this but I have PCOS and yesterday I got a couple of books on it and ya.... this weight loss thing is going to be a little harder than I thought. When you have PCOS you pretty much have insulin restiance and so everything you eat is stored into fat and the main storage area is the abdomen (another symptom ) and when I started wor...

I have PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome ) and my doctor had me do some blood work as well. I got my chlorestorol test results back but I'm still waiting for the others to come in.... blah... He even referred me to Weight Watchers which I started going to today... I am having a horrible time tracking before so maybe this will help me out a little bit since I have to go every week.

My personal training sessions are going extremely well too! I feel like I can do anything now! Last Wednesday I exercised with a medicine ball for the first time and I have to say it was pretty hard. But I did it and with a huge smile on my face! I never say I can't because I know there are others that are in worse shape I am and they can do it, so why can't I?? I'll post my results later!!

The whole day I was nervous and worried about my mom (more on that later) so it was nice having something to look forward to so I could keep my mind of my mom. I went to my first session and it was so much fun that the hour went by fast . But let me tell ya I'm so sore! I'm going to feel it in the morning and I have to ... Wed, 7 Sep 2011 21:34:05 EST Fit Assessment and meeting Ryan my new PT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4461713 I signed the paperwork for the gym yesterday and when I was finishing up the membership helper person started talking to me about the free fitness assessment test they offer and asked if I was interested. Of course I was and told him to sign me up ASAP. And that's what got me there to the gym today, and let me tell you, I was SO NERVOUS!! While I was waiting one of the PTs gave me a questionare to fill out while my Personal Trainer arrived. Some of the questions were- What are you goals? What... Thu, 1 Sep 2011 23:51:08 EST Excited! Meeting with my gym people tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4457287 I'm going to be a busy bee the next couple of months! Tomorrow I'm meeting with people from my gym I went to for two months (seriously two) and I had to stop because that's when I found about the ovarian tumor and umbilical hernia I had and I couldn't exercise as much as I wanted to and when I had my surgeries I could do light activity in order to heal. Anyway, since I finally have an insurance that helps pay for gym memberships I'm going to take full advantage of it!! The gym is so nice too....

I mean REALLY stressful and it's not the job itself that is making me stress out. It is just drama between staff that really makes me dread going but the kids that attend the camp are my only motivation for going to work with a smile on my face. That being said, I had a goal of being active on spark agai...

Well she’s been out of high school for almost a year now and has gained a lot of weight. I wasn’t really surprised because all she has been doing is eating a bunch of Hot Cheetos, drinking a ton of pop, and lay around all day watching t.v. Recently she has finally decided to do something about gaining all this weight that sh...

Anyway, in the shopping center by my house there is a Subway and a Burger King right across of each other in the parking lot. One morning I had twenty minutes to get to work but needed to grab some breakfast (I didn't want to skip) so I parked right between the two places ( I had to lol) I looked at the Burger King and figured it might be faster but then I thought about the time I had l...
