I want to do alot of hiking and stuff so I want to have better endurance. <BR> <BR> My goal is to lost 18 pounds by March 29, 2013. That is about 2 pounds a week. <BR> <BR> I am starting a Les Mills Body Pump tomorrow . It is a weight lig=fting class that is one hour long. I used to do it a few years ago and loved how strong I got! Tue, 5 Feb 2013 22:58:03 EST Fresh February http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5234895 First of all I need to say that Stinamarie totally gave me this idea for a blog. She made some February goals and I decided that I needed some too. <BR> <BR> So here they are: <BR> 1.) I'm not going to give up on a day because I ate something really bad. I'm going to make the next choice that day a good one. <BR> <BR> 2.) Get up and work out in the morning for at least 30 minutes 6 days a week. (I need to amp my my work out routine) <BR> <BR> 3.) Lose a pants size. ( I want my damn jea... Sat, 2 Feb 2013 20:39:04 EST Today is a New Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5231125 It took me a while but I finally realized what " One day at a time" means. <BR> <BR> I do my best to get in at least 10 minutes of exercise (usually more that that happens) Eat healthy meals and stay positive. When i slip up a little bit I'm not spazzing out inside. <BR> <BR> Instead, when I slip, I make a good decision the next time a meal pops up. I don't ask my son to shut off the light/grab the remote/get me some water after a long day at work, I get off my butt and do it myself. ... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 02:35:16 EST This Day Almost Got Me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221041 Today I woke up late because my alarm didn't go off (because my alarm is my phone and it died). Do I was not able to get in my morning workout that I have so good about. So I thought "it's okay I'll ride my bike to work and that will take care of it" <BR> <BR> But <BR> <BR> I forgot that I had a luncheon planned that I was supposed to make rolls for and ended up just buying some at the store. bleh. The luncheon was so FUN and I ended up staying so long (and eating so much that I didn't ... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 02:29:01 EST Started Week to of 5K Your Way http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214181 When I got up to go out and get the exercise done this morning my 6 year old was like "I wanna come" <BR> <BR> Morning workout is MY time so I convinced him to go back to bed. But, tomorrow is a cross train day and I am going to wake him up and see if he wants to do an early morning walk with me. <BR> <BR> I have been way more active this week. We even played soccer yesterday! <BR> <BR> Well I'll post what happens with my son if he does or does not go on the walk with me. <BR> <BR> ... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 11:07:56 EST One of those Hungry Days... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5213516 I have been sooo hungry all day! I'm not exactly sure why but I think it may be one of three reasons. <BR> <BR> 1.) I ate a huge breakfast and didn't work out. I had a request from my son for french toast eggs and bacon (our fave). I only ate 1 slice of toast but i did eat 3 pieces of bacon.. It was good. <BR> <BR> 2.) I have been exercising more this week then I have in the past few months. <BR> <BR> 3.) Something to do with "the cycle". <BR> <BR> Now that I have written all this out... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 20:28:41 EST Feeling Good After Sticking with it for a week. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210904 I would like to toot my own horn for a second... <BR> <BR> I am very proud of myself this week for sticking with my healthy eating and new 5k training plan. I didn't go overboard on anything this week. I just stayed balanced. Usually I go balls to the wall in either exercise or eating and then get burned out but this time I am trying not to be such a a spaz and it is working out so well. <BR> <BR> I don''t get hungry or too sore. This coming week the 5k program kicks it up a notch and... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 00:37:44 EST Started a 5k training program. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5203489 This webite is immense! I found a 5k training program on here and got weekone day one under my belt. <BR> <BR> Excited to lose my wieght this year! Sat, 12 Jan 2013 11:17:29 EST I got a little carried away today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5199070 I meant to do a work out this morning, but, I couldn't pull myself out of bed. I was going to walk my son to school and ride my bike to work but I got carried away reorganizing the furniture in my room. <BR> <BR> It is a good thing and it was 35 fitness minutes of "heavy cleaning". I really needed to be done. Now I can work out in my bedroom. I made enough space for that, now I just need to roll out of bed...literally LOL. <BR> <BR> I hope this works. I'm the kind of person that need... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 16:01:33 EST Here we go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5196248 I finally got to see the new Biggest Loser episode on hulu and I love that show. I cry all the time. It would be so cool to go and train and get my but kicked by those guys for a couple weeks. To see those people lose like 20 pounds ina week is so inspiring. <BR> <BR> So I'm all pumped up now to get as active as I can. My stinking car broke down but I have a bike and everything is really close to my house but...ya know. I will be using my bike alot more now. My son is really excited ... Tue, 8 Jan 2013 02:32:11 EST I Joined a New Challenge! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185288 I must admit I've been having a really hard time getting back on the Sparkpeople wagon. I set it up as my homepage and every time I get on the computer I realize I am not trying to be healthier..So...I quickly get to yahoo or facebook or whatever other thing I need to do at the time and not mess with the website. <BR> <BR> New year, a fresh start and I joined a new challenge, restarted all my streak counters and ...dundundun weighed myself. As I suspected I put on some pounds but was shock... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 02:08:27 EST Restarting over and over. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5128835 Well at least this time I can say that this "fall" off the wagon has been the most successful. "how?" you might be asking. This time I never stopped thinking about getting back on the wagon. I never thought, " forget it, SadieLynn you are going to be fat for the rest of your life just face it." I never thought that this time, I just kept thinking I get back on it tomorrow. Well it has now been around three weeks (it seemed longer than that) and I really mean it for tomorrow. <BR> <BR> I... Thu, 8 Nov 2012 20:14:59 EST Man did I fall off the wagon. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5117220 I was doing so good! But then I just stopped. That was about 3 weeks ago. Everyday I keep thinking I'll make better choices tomorrow. Then tomorrow come and I blow it. I get so mad at myself. I know I just need to pick myself back up and start again.... <BR> <BR> So here is to tomorrow. Mon, 29 Oct 2012 20:25:26 EST Can I get a Woot Woot! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5097632 LOL i'm a dork. <BR> <BR> Any ways I worked out for 45 minutes today. I will bike to work which will put me over 60 minutes (80 to be exact ;). I feel so good. I actually woke up and worked out in the mornings this week. I've also found that if I eat a big breakfast I make it better through the day. <BR> <BR> I am also seeing the benefits of not just counting calories but seeing how many carb, fat etc I take into my body. I think all this morning exercise is making my brain work bett... Sat, 13 Oct 2012 13:56:16 EST Huh? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5095767 So I logged onto my fitness tracker to track my stuff today and since I don't know how many calories I burn when I do the jillian micheals DVD so I just burn in a total body work out DVD and track my minutes. It is telling me I am not eating enough for all the workouts I am doing. Now, I feel fine. I eat when I'm hungry. I choose healthy foods. I drink when I'm thirsty and sometimes I even go over my calorie intake. <BR> <BR> Things seem to be working out just fine. I don't understand.... Thu, 11 Oct 2012 21:11:50 EST Sleep Entry #4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5094672 I have missed a few day blogging about my sleep habit but I have been writing it all down an a sheeet of paper on my desk.. This morning was the first morning that I actually woke up and did not hit the snooze button! I worked out with Jillian Micheals....in my living room. I have a personal goal to do the DVD the way that she says to do it. She recommends 5-6 day a week for 4 weeks. It's only 4 weeks. That goes by fast. This is one of those things that I have to do to let myself know ... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 23:22:13 EST Sleep Entry #3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5089584 I had a much needed one on one conversation with my ex mother in law tonight. I love her to pieces and it's wierd but she is my best friend. Latley thing have been weird so I told her how I felt about some things and I feel lighter. <BR> <BR> So needless to say I am getting to bed a bit lat tonight but it was so worth it. I have to do some Bible study for meeting tomorrow, but I hope to wake up and run for at least 15 mionutes tomorrow. I CAN do this!!!!! <BR> <BR> Goodnight all.

I have to type fast and get this done so I can get in bed by 10:30pm (pacific)!!!!! lol <BR> <BR> I plan on riding my bike to work again tomorrow. I want to wake up and run in the morning for a mile or two maybe.... <BR> <BR> Good night! <em>102</em> Sat, 6 Oct 2012 01:31:27 EST I didn't even want to log on today..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5087354 I had an emotional day. I don't knowe what is up, mother nature visited last week not this week! I anted to eat emotionally sooooooo badl, but instead of running for a burger and fries I stopped at subway, which is a little better i guess.......except I got a spicy italian smothered with marinara sauce! ugh Also I had to have a beer tonight. And some chocolate. I feel gross. I know it isn't the end of the world but I'm just scared that I'm going to start justifying things to myself and ... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 02:19:41 EST The Final Veggie Soup Day and the Results http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5085084 Well I had people over for dinner 2 times and fed them the soup so I ran out 2 days early. I will be cooking a top round roast according and the roasted root vegetables out of the cook book this next week. Here I come meat! <BR> <BR> The final results for my jump start this week is 4 pounds gone! This is how it went: <BR> 9/29 ~ 197.2 <BR> 9/30 ~ 194.9 <BR> 10/1 ~ 195.4 (I had pancakes lol) <BR> 10/2 ~ 193.8 <BR> 10/3 ~ 192.8 <BR> <BR> Veggie week worked! THIS WAS NOT A DIET. I call it... Wed, 3 Oct 2012 11:10:13 EST Veggie Week Day Four http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5083640 Well I lost 1.6 pounds as of this morning that means since I started veggie week I have lost a total of 3.4 pounds so far. <BR> <BR> Last night I was really hungry because I walked to my son to and from school (which he loves), rode my bike to work and back (4.5 miles) and work on my garden digging out a bunch of iris tubers for about 40 minutes. So I ate some garlic bread with cheese on it, a side of brussel srpouts and green beans with this tasty garlic & sea salt butter from one of the l... Tue, 2 Oct 2012 10:57:32 EST Veggie Week Day Three http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5082429 So I gained .6 pounds when I stepped on the scale this morning. I'm pretty sure it's because of those pancakes.... Any ideas how to tell someone who cooks delicious food for you that you can't eat it? She is such a good cook... <BR> <BR> The soup tasted better than ever last night. I bought some brussel sprouts to go with it for dinner tonight and I think I will add some peas. <BR> <BR> Going to be getting my hands dirt today and giving my flower bed a makeover I'm digging up iris th... Mon, 1 Oct 2012 15:12:36 EST Veggie Week Day Two http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5080819 I stepped on the scale and this mornign I had lost 2.4 pounds poof! Just like that. <BR> <BR> My roomate made pancakes...... She is one of those tiny little people who eats anything she wantand never gets fat. When she say she looks fat I want to slap her and visually assault her with my vast amount of stomach flab. So needless to say I had a soft boiled egg and some pancakes 2 of them. grrr.... But it was good. I don't know how to tell her not to cook that kind of stuff for me anymo... Sun, 30 Sep 2012 16:22:00 EST Vegetable Soup Week Day One http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5080077 This isn't a diet but a healthy jumpstart. <BR> <BR> The recipe is under Shamayo's Easy Peasy Vegetable Soup. <BR> <BR> The recipe is open to change. It asks for it. I never make it the same way twice I usually add stuff to it untill it's gone to keep it tasty. I put the basic in the recipe. I would love to hear what you thought of it! <BR> <BR> Now I am going to post how much weight I lose PER DAY on this here blog. Also what I pair the soup with. I try to eat only veggies durin... Sun, 30 Sep 2012 00:21:49 EST Four http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5079491 I have been doing daily weigh ins and they seem to keep me accountable to myself a better than weekly ones. Tofay I am going bike to work again. <BR> <BR> I have this yummy nutritious Vegetable Soup receipe that in the past has helped me jump start my weight loss. I eat it for every meal untill it is gone, and it is a huge pot. It tastes better and better everyday. I will eat a piece of bread with it if I feel a little more voracious on a day. I like to call it veggie week. No meat f... Sat, 29 Sep 2012 12:03:29 EST Number Three http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5079151 Today I biked to work. I felt all official I had a blinking red light and everything it was great. I started thinking, whenever I thought my legs would burn off, how easy the commute would be beforeI even knew it. I know I probably look a little weird being a big girl riding a little bike. I live in a really small community and maybe people will notice the weight coming off. Once I lose a fair amount of wieght (amount to be determined) I may buy some spandex! hahaha but seriously.... <BR... Sat, 29 Sep 2012 03:08:35 EST Second One http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5077691 Okay today was a really good day. I didn't overeat, I ran for 15 minutes before I brought my boy to school. <BR> <BR> I have been single six years and I think that once the pounds start melting away because f hard work I will gain some self confidence. <BR> <BR> I recently began working at a whole foods store that is less than 2 miles away from my home and I am going to stop driving to work effective tomorrow. I live in the beautiful state of Washington and the rain will not slow me down ...
