I pushed myself to complete my workout today but I seriously kept finding excuses to push it back. I begin to resent the time that I have to spend doing something painful and boring (seriously dramatic here- it's only 20 minutes and I can physically handle it). I'm enjoying taking walks but I get lonely. I think I'm going to look for a walking buddy. <BR> <BR> Anyway, countdown is on- I re... Sun, 6 Jan 2013 21:26:37 EST Off to a great start! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185100 I got in over 12,000 steps AND did my Shred workout!! Woo woo! Tue, 1 Jan 2013 23:21:54 EST It's a New Year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5184207 Starting JM Shred again today. I have my own support system of real-life people, and the support of online people here on Sparkpeople. I can do this, I can do this! 20 minutes of ME time a day, plus focusing on walking as much as possible. I love my FitBit One and how my husband and I compete for steps. Tue, 1 Jan 2013 15:31:55 EST Gotta keep on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5180297 So I did the 30 day shred, I was sore, so I didn't do it the following day. That was me being a baby. ANd then today I was sick, I'm coughing up a lung right now. BUT my goal is to still do it tomorrow because if I don't I just know I'm going to go all quitter-style on myself. I WILL DO THE SHRED TOMORROW!!! Sat, 29 Dec 2012 22:04:25 EST Changing my quitter ways.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5177094 I'm excited to begin an exercise program, but I'm afraid also... I quit everything. I keep trying to tell myself that I just have to increase my movement each day just a little. But I'm admitting it. I'm a quitter. SO this time, I'm being open about it and will see if it helps. <BR> <BR> Wed, 26 Dec 2012 21:26:45 EST Christmas Eve fun! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5175492 I love, love, love Christmas Eve!!! With two little buggers, (my daughter almost 3, and my son about 5 months) I get to Santa it up. Wrapping, setting the gifts up just right, filling the stockings, and basically just being giddy with excitement. I can't wait to see their faces! Claire is so expressive and funny, and Jack is just pure joy (even if he won't understand what is happening!). <BR> <BR> As for my fitbitting, I'm loving checking on my number of steps through the day. I especially ... Mon, 24 Dec 2012 22:34:49 EST Official Fitbit User!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5173342 It may be a minor achievement, but I did it. I purchased a Fitbit One, and the scale. I have my One up and running, but the scale may take a little more attention. I'm off to bed finally. Going to see how the One tracks my sleep! Sat, 22 Dec 2012 00:01:09 EST Headed to Best Buy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5173204 I'm currently sitting in Barnes and Noble, having a little Mommy time. I have some tea, my lap top, and a bunch of strangers that don't need me to do a dang thing for them! <BR> <BR> I've updated my spark page, and have wrapped my head around what I am doing with this whole Sparkpeople/weight loss/life changes for me thing. First on my list- head on over to Best Buy and get a Fit Bit. I'm hoping it will bring out my competitive nature! <BR> <BR> I will hopefully check in later to link it up...
