I am starting to notice that there are more things that I can do this week that I couldn't last. There are still some challenges that I can't do just because of my weight (like the crab walk) and planking. I'm getting there!!! Mon, 21 Jan 2013 21:22:05 EST Dirty Girl http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5216031 I am so excited about this year's Dirty Girl 5k run. I already have a group of dirty girls joining my team. This is my first time ever entering a race. I am also forming a team for Relay for Life. I think this is the beginning of a new addiction for me. Sun, 20 Jan 2013 20:05:28 EST I have been away but not idol http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214455 I have been so busy with work and school that I hardly have time to sign in to spark people on a daily basis, but I will when I can. I am taking an aerobics class three times a week at the YMCA and I have a personal trainer working with me to prepare me for a 5k run coming up this September. My daughters are in a Zumba class that I do with them and I started a fitness group with my co workers where we go to the gym every Monday after work. I also purchased just dance 4 for the wii and I LOVE ... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 15:16:01 EST Super Saturday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5191879 I had a beautiful mother daughter day. I took my two oldest daughters to the YMCA today. We worked out in the gym for 45 minutes and then went down to the pool to swim laps. Then we ate lunch and went on the Wii Fit. It was a great day. I will be relaxing tomorrow. Sat, 5 Jan 2013 16:43:27 EST Getting the whole family in! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5188987 I work at the YMCA and I did not have a family membership (shame on me). So for a New Years gift to my family I got the family membership. It was great to have so many work out partners today! My husband hasn't started yet but he has been inspired (he threw out all the junk food while we were gone). He claims he will begin his work out tomorrow. I'll let you know how that turns out. I also brought my Wii back downstairs to the family room so we could use the Wii fit again for family night in... Thu, 3 Jan 2013 21:29:02 EST Doing The Twist http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5179333 I am disappointed that I did not get to go to the gym today because I had dinner guests. I did get a work out with my kids today at the YMCA. I did the twist with my class. I can't believe how long ten minutes actually feels when you are twisting and turning. I still came home and did a Spark video also, so I did get my minutes in. I was tracking my calorie intake today and realized that by dinner time I had only consumed 400 calories. I decided to have some pop corn and half a cup of hot ... Fri, 28 Dec 2012 22:32:53 EST Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5178123 I am already beginning to feel better. Just setting goals alone helped. I love this site because I can track my success and I can see that others struggle just like I do. I have been very careful to measure my food today. My husband forgot that I started watching what I eat and he tried shoving a chocolate chip cookie in my mouth today. I did good. I jumped back and dramatically yelled "Are you trying to kill me?" It was so funny. He apologized about twenty times. I can't wait until he can s... Thu, 27 Dec 2012 20:56:50 EST Happy New Year!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5176974 Well, this is a new year and a new life for me. I have goals in place and I struggle with staying motivated. I usually do really well for about a month and then things die down or for some reason I loose my routine. I need friends here on Spark People to help me stay motivated. I did really well today. I worked at the YMCA today so I went to the gym after work and ran on the treadmill for about 25 min. I went a little over a mile. I also took the kids for a brisk 20 min walk. Wed, 26 Dec 2012 19:05:19 EST
