I plan to go to the gym in about an hour and get a good workout in! I am starting this journaling process to help myself stay focused and motivated. <BR> This morning I woke up feeling blotted and uncomfortable, the scale is telling me the same thing by showing me a 3lb gain&#61516; (It’s that time of month) <BR> I want to lose weight but losing weight is not my only goal.

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 12:34:49 EST Dedication and determination http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3659389 I feel these are two very important aspects to success. I know, I am so profound, LOL! <em>211</em> Tue, 21 Sep 2010 19:21:50 EST I'm excited again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3644157 I'm excited because I am back on the road to health and wellbeing. I've been on a different path for the past few months but I'm back on course now. Last night I went to the gym and had a great workout and I look forward to that again today. <em>104</em> Thu, 16 Sep 2010 13:30:41 EST Never Give Up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2340247 People shouldn't hesitate to exert their all, in a way true to themselves. How can you possibly ever know how far or fast you can go if you've never run all-out? To give up even before you've tried is actually arrogance--an affront to the wondrous power of life within you and disrespectful to yourself. <BR> ~Daisaku Ikeda~ <BR> At times I feel like giving up and becoming complacent but I look for motivation to keep me going!

I know a lot of the time I look at what I Do Not Want! I don’t want to be out of shape/ I don’t want to be broke / I don’t want to get sick <BR> It’s very important that I change my thought patterns, stop looking at what I Don’t Want and begin to look at What I Want. I want to be fit and within my appropriate weight range <BR> / I want to make a ...

Right now I’m realizing I have both negative and positive beliefs. I must make it a priority to change my negative beliefs into positive ones because whatever I believe becomes true for me. Do I truly believe that my health is a top priority in my life, if I truly believe that my life will begin to reflect it. There is emotio... Sun, 26 Jul 2009 14:28:28 EST Still Determined http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2148586 I did not lose any lbs this week, and usually I would be disappointed but I’m going to guess that I toned my muscles. I am going to try harder to reach my next marker of 182 by next Sunday 8/23/09. I will record all my food intake, try to plan meals ahead of time, drink 8 glasses of water a day and try to work out 5 days next week. I don’t want to keep using this muscle excuse. I’ll also take my measurements again next week. <em>84</em> Sat, 13 Jun 2009 22:43:45 EST Looking for a brighter day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2144370 I had a rough day today, just feeling out of it and frustrated about the sore muscles I have from the 90 minuet cardio and weight workout I had yesterday. I know sore muscles are a part of this game but I can barely move and it’s irritating. It’s just as well because I was too tired to do much anyway. I guess we all have blah days and I had one today, hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow. I do plan to go back to the gym, so I guess I not totally pissed. <BR> <BR> <em>39</em> <em>33</em> <... Fri, 12 Jun 2009 01:06:30 EST Not so excited but still doing the work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2118265 6/3/09 <BR> I can’t say I’m as excited as I was initially last week but I’m still doing the work. Watching what I eat and exercising. I have a hard time planning my meals and following the meal plans, I don’t know why that’s a block for me. I have been cooking more and doing a lot of cleaning and organizing around the house. I got my closet looking good and threw away a lot of papers. I’m feeling good about that. I still look forward to going to water aerobics, it’s a good workout. <BR> <em... Wed, 3 Jun 2009 01:12:52 EST One day at a time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2096341 I joined LA Fitness, it's a nice gym. My first class was Aqua Fit, we did cardio and weights in the water, it was fun. I look forward to going to class especially when it's 110, I'll Love it <em>129</em> Later that day I went back for an introductory workout with a personal trainer, thus my sore calves. <em>234</em> day 6 & still excited <em>244</em> Tue, 26 May 2009 22:37:28 EST Day 2 I made SP my homepage http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2084328 I'm still excited, I made SP my homepage. When I turned on my computer, I immediately began thinking about healthy eating and exercise. I feel really motivated to follow. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>104</em> Fri, 22 May 2009 10:35:32 EST Day 1 So EXCITED! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2083643 I am so excited I found this site. It's well put together and motivational. I hope I'm 50lbs lighter and happily healthy 365 days from now. <em>9</em> Fri, 22 May 2009 02:11:59 EST
