SUNSHINE192DAY's SparkPeople Blog SUNSHINE192DAY's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Accountability Day! Well I did weigh in on Saturday and I went down to 295.4 which is almost a pound in 1 week! I wasn't able to do all of my workouts last week because I have bronchitis, a sinus infection, AND a bacterial throat infection. Good thing I don't start my new job until next week. <BR> <BR> Since my doctor told me to take a week off from exercising I'm cutting what I eat and eating in moderation. I'm really thinking about what I'm putting in my body BEFORE I do it! Now for some motivation! <BR> <BR... Mon, 7 Apr 2014 11:41:16 EST Job Update!

I'm going to chose just 3 and see where that gets me! <BR> <BR> 1. Exercise at least 3 times each week. <BR> <BR> 2. Abstain from fried foods when I eat out. <BR> <BR> 3. Read at least one chapter of the Bible every day. <BR> <BR> Not all of these are fitness related but I figure I might as well keep myself spiritually healthy too! I'm going to take my measurements today and on the 30th and see a difference! (I just know it!) Tue, 1 Apr 2014 11:27:34 EST Accountability Day (Finally!) I weighed in 0.8 pounds heavier at 207. I just can't seem to break the 200 mark but I will! I weighed in after eating (forgot again) and with clothes on so I actually didn't do bad this week! I exercised twice this past week but I ate better. This week I plan to exercise 4 times Sunday (heavy cleaning,) Monday (belly dancing,) Thursday (gazelle,) and Saturday (yoga.)

It sounds like quite an undertaking,” he said. "Just think of the logistics. The supports required reaching the bottom of the ocean, the concrete, and the steel! Why don't you pick something else?" <BR> <BR> The man thought for a while and then said, "Okay, I wish f... Sun, 30 Mar 2014 21:33:35 EST A Cannibal Joke! (I forgot to weigh in this morning so Accountability Day will be tomorrow!) <BR> <BR> A cannibal entered the meat market to buy something nice for dinner. The owner greeted him and told him to look around. The cannibal began to inspect the meat case and noticed the market specialized in brain. <BR> <BR> Upon further inspection he noticed a marked disparity between the costs of brain meats.

Well I exercised 3 times this week but I forgot that I had promised my boyfriend that I'd help him move some stuff out of his shop and that my bedroom was getting moved downstairs this weekend.

So I just realized I hadn't reported last week. Probably because we had a lot going on this past weekend at church and the fact that I'm hating my weigh in. I weighed in 3.6 pounds heavier at 207.6 pounds. The big no no that I did was pop drinking. It's hard to imagine that you can gain that much from soda but that's the only thing I did wrong. I had to skip 2 workouts because I was ordered to by my chiropractor. But now I'm back in action! <BR> <BR> So it's Tuesday (gazelle,) Wednesday (bel... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 14:50:56 EST Friday Funny!

I missed accountability day so here goes! <BR> <BR> I missed exercising last week because my schedule was so crazy (it should be calmer this week) and I didn't track a thing. I lost 0.2 pounds which is probably water alone. I'm not trying to make excuses here and I'm not trying to gloss over anything. It is what it is and that's not exactly a great week. <BR> <BR> The next 2 weeks I'll be aiming... Tue, 11 Mar 2014 09:36:53 EST Memory Funny!

He thought and thought, but couldn't remember. Then a smile broke across his face and he asked, "What do... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 13:00:36 EST Borrowed Joke!

"You've got to have a room somewhere." he pleaded to the last hotel manager, "Or just a bed--I don't really care where. I'm completely exhausted" <BR> <BR> "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant," admitted the manager, "and I'm sure he would be glad to split the cost.

A man takes his dog to the vet. “My dog is crossed eyed, is there anything you can do for him? “Well,” says the vet, “let’s take a look at him.” So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.

I gained 0.4 pounds this week, which is ok. Considering that I didn't track anything I'm accepting the gain for what it is. I realized last week that I'm the type of person that needs to log EVERY day, probably for the rest of my life, and it depressed me so I gave up a bit. <BR> <BR> BUT I exercised 4 times this week for a total of 150 minutes and exceeded the calories I needed to burn!
