Person A provides comfort with positive comments and a "you can do it" attitude. Person B feels relieved that someone understands and that they have someone they can turn to and vent about their downfalls. Person A realizes that Person B is hard enough on themselves...Person A remembers they were ... Thu, 27 Feb 2014 10:30:48 EST Blog Shmog...with no name. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4441931 SO...I bought another IPOD. One that will be specifically for working out so I can put it on random and whatever comes up will be something I won't feel the need to skip. Ya know, good hardcore, motivational music. Any suggestions? <BR> <BR> Now for other news... <BR> <BR> I am all over the place doing all kinds of things. I feel spastic. I am doing Zumba, Yoga, Running, Biking, Hiking, Walking, even Boxing...anything I can to get me moving. It's random and unscheduled but I am at least doi...

With the stock market going crazy people are reinvesting their money, rethinking all their decisions, subconsciously knowing that if the stock market goes back up then they may make a foolish mistake. <BR> <BR> Well let’s take this to our everyday lives. Why shouldn’t you rethink the choices you make daily and reinvest in yourself if the choices are affecting you in a bad way. So wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Right now. Here we go… <BR> ...

Yes I just came up with this and it totally just wowed me so I had to get it down on paper...err...you know what I mean. <BR> <BR> So let's see he...

I HAVE MANY MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WRITE ABOUT!! <BR> <BR> Anyway...here's the major points for today... <BR> <BR> 1. I am back at this thing again. Hardcore. Ready to make more changes. <BR> 2. Hubby is home from the hospital and things are going great. <BR> 3. I have decided to become an instructor of some sort of workout. Still deciding which. <BR> 4.

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 15:05:50 EST Rough http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4317330 Yeah I know I am skipping P and Q for now...Why? Because this is needed. <BR> <BR> I am on an unexpected break again. This time, my husband is in the hospital and I honestly just don't have time that I want to devote to working out. It's been rough to say the least. Anyway, the timeline appears to be 10 days as of last night. <BR> <BR> Lots of travelling due to him being transferred to a hospital 2.5 hours away...lots of working form home and hotels...lots of crying...and NO bad eating!!

Hopefully you are headed forward and not backwards. But as in any case, you could easily go the other way. <BR> <BR> Are you moving forward? <BR> Yes? Then how will you stay moving forward? <BR> No? How will change pace to move forward? <BR> <BR> One step at a time. Seriously, if you aren't motivated to workout, run, or swim...just get up and walk. Walk to your mailbox, walk your dog, walk you...

You are likely sitting down reading my blog. (I married Mr. obvious...what can I say?) At the present moment I am thinking about not what's in the future, or in the past. Not what my goal weight is, or what I used to weigh. I am focusing on today. Day by day. The NOW. Goals can sometimes be far fetched and you can easily set yourself up for failure without meaning too. Your drive is strong but you really have to thi...

For having the willpower, courage, strength, ability, and mindset to stick with it, make the lifestyle change happen, or even be motivated enough to just start. If not, do it today. Look in that mirror and glare in those beautiful eyes of yours and see that change. See all the ha...

Why did I leave right in the middle of my abc blogs and challenges. Well. First let me start by saying that I will pick up where I left off, with blogging, by gosh I'm finishing what I started. Starting tomorrow with M since L was the last one I wrote. <BR> <BR> As for what happened, life. (Hey, look...another L word.) Life got hectic. I got out of it. I needed to focus. I couldn't get a routine down that I liked and I just needed a break. I became unmotivated. I didn't... Wed, 25 May 2011 14:53:47 EST LEISURE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4163572 LEISURE - time free from demands; when one can rest and enjoy their interests. <BR> <BR> That's what I'm talking about!!! I love my relaxation times! I mean after all the hard work we put in to get our bodies healthy, we also need to remember to relax, enjoy, and have some leisure time for our bodies to regroup and our minds to clear. <BR> <BR> Time free from demands - what is more important than making sure you are getting healthy the right way and taking time for yourself to love yoursel...

But, here's K and I will get L out today too!! <BR> <BR> KEEP - to hold or retain in one's possession; hold as one's own. <BR> <BR> I want to hold onto a feeling. The only way to do that is to keep on pushing through, <BR> exercising, and keeping my body healthy. <BR> <BR> I love how it feels when I eat clean and my body is satisfied with the fuel I have given it. I get so energetic, happy, and just ready to go. I...

Sorry but ya know, honeymoon time took over and well, there was just no time for spark blogging...but new week, back and better than ever!! So, picking up where I left off....ABCDEFGHI J!

The way America has turned to fast food and convenience is astounding. I don't want to be in a statistic anymore and help Americas obesity numbers. I want to be in t...

I guess I never really thought about how I had gained weight. I never once thought to blame myself...I just thought about how "fat" I was...always kind of mean to myself and hurtful. I never once thought, it's ok, you can change this...until now. I mean it was "my fault" I gained weight...but I never thoug... Mon, 28 Mar 2011 09:30:23 EST FOCUS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4117068 FOCUS - a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity; concentration. <BR> <BR> Ok, I'm going to take this one and use it in 4 different ways. So, it's going to be wordy, long, but way interesting. <BR> <BR> 1. Focus...on a central point <BR> my central point these days - healthy living. Losing weight and feeling better are just perks of that. <BR> <BR> 2. Focus...on an attraction <BR> attraction? Yep, that's right. I focus on certain aspects that I feel make me look prettier. ...

I am ALWAYS worried about what I am putting in my body, even when I make bad choices...I am thinking about it. Knowing I shouldn't but do anyways and regretting it later when my body rejects it as good fuel and makes me feel like crapola. <BR> I have a drive that gets subsided by feelings and thoughts of doubt. I question if I am really strong enough ...

They're gorgeous. I would never "want to be them" or "look exactly like that". <BR> I want to look like me...just a healthier (skinnier) version. I want to look at myself and know that this is the best I can be. That...that is true beauty my friends. <BR> <BR> I could go on and on, but I am going to le... Mon, 21 Mar 2011 08:15:55 EST ARMY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4100435 ARMY - a large body of persons trained and armed for war. <BR> <BR> A few days ago, someone that is very motivating to me said these words. <BR> <BR> "If you need advice on having the will power and spirit of a small army, contact Heather....she refuses to quit!!" <BR> <BR> I printed these words and have them hanging in my desk at work so I can look at them and see that people DO notice how hard I am working. Even when I am down or feeling like eating junk because no results are coming in....

I will also include a picture of myself in these blogs expressing these words. <BR> <BR> These have been handpicked by yours truly. Wish me luck as I am hoping that after 26 days...a... Thu, 17 Mar 2011 16:45:17 EST Ketchup http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4062886 (catch up) HAHAHA! My cleverness is astounding I know. <BR> <BR> Ok, I have been out of commission, on a break, whatever you want to call it for about a full month now. So, here's what's happened, what's happening, and what's about to happen. <BR> <BR> What happened: Well first, after my run I was getting amped up for my run in March which is in Alabama. The Azalea Trail Run is on March 26th...so I was training. Anyway, I was slacking on my sparking because I was also holding some classes a... Thu, 3 Mar 2011 10:07:27 EST The race that changed it all. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3954577 The Cool Shark 5k race started at the C. B. Greer Elementary in Brunswick, Georgia in the entrance of the school. (Next to the welcome sign with - of course- their mascot a SHARK!) and then went around a neighborhood next door and back through the front for the little guy to tick his timer and tell me my time. Before the race began a guy with a mega-phone goes to the front of the waiting runners and calls my name. I proceed to the front questioning his motives the whole way but with a smile a... Sun, 23 Jan 2011 23:18:08 EST Physical Mentality http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3946995 So here's the deal... <BR> <BR> Mentally, I am feeling like I'm incompotent in all areas of my life. It's heartbreaking really. I mean, it's like my head keeps saying everything I have tried to do or have done isn't worth while and I'm just a complete failure at it and i suck at life. Finances, work, weight loss, and letting everyone down around me because I can't follow through. <BR> <BR> LIES. All of it. I mentally sabotage myself, and I don't know why. My finances are just fine. Yeah the... Fri, 21 Jan 2011 10:38:18 EST SUNSHINE! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3936612 Stop everything you are doing right now. <BR> Unleash the inner positive happy voice in your head. <BR> Now repeat after me. <BR> Some people may get results faster than me, but I will get there. <BR> However fast or slow, as long as I move, I know I will make it. <BR> It may not be in the time I want, but I will accomplish my goals. <BR> Now close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths. <BR> Eyes open, smile, and have a great day! <BR> <BR> Enjoy the sunshine. <BR> Tue, 18 Jan 2011 10:03:55 EST I got my mind set on you! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3921500 And this time I know it's for real..." - Thank you George Harrison. <BR> <BR> The weather has been so bad I've been at home all week. Work was closed, roads were closed, I was stuck. So no gym for me. SAD. Then my gym opened up on saturday but the roads were still rough so I stayed at home. Thursday night comes and I get text asking me about what I done that day (fitness wise). Well who am I to disappoint. I didn't do anything for almost a week! I got up, got dressed, put on my swanky rain b...

I order a veggie tortilla plate. You got it, stir fried veggies, and tortillas...thats it. It's the best thing I can find on the menu and I know not to overdo it during the day on thursdays due to it. What I didn't expect is for some pretty size 2 teenage "queen bee" to come to our table look at me, and very snottily say this: "Can I have ...

I was not happy with what I saw...were you? <BR> <BR> <em>30</em> I sure was! I saw a woman who has lost 37 pounds so far and who is still working towards a healthy life and a fit and toned body. Why, what did you see? <BR> <BR> <em>28</em> Not what I wanted, that's for sure. I saw a woman who still has 50 pounds to lose, struggling with getting the right foods in, struggling on which workouts she can get in. <BR> <BR> <em>3... Wed, 5 Jan 2011 11:41:27 EST 2011. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3888816 My plan for 2011: <BR> <BR> I got the idea for an encouraging motivational calendar from ABETTERCHERYL and I have finally created my own calendar to track my workouts, put stickers on (I got cute foil-ee ones) and thus motivate me everyday to 1. workout, 2. get a sticker, and 3. take it day by day and get a workout in. <BR> <BR> I have a little twist though. For each month, I have a set focus and a motivational quote. For each focus, I have a corresponding movie and movie quote. I am going ... Tue, 4 Jan 2011 14:06:18 EST I'm not making resolutions... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3867483 I'm making solutions. PERIOD. <BR> <BR> Resolutions is a funny word. RE-solutions...these days it tends to be like a promise to repeat a solution you made before. Well that's no good. The definition of resolution is to find a solution to a problem. That's what I want..but I don't just want the same old problems year after year. I don't want to try the same things as I did before and see if I get different results when if I look back...they OBVIOUSLY haven't worked. I want a solution. A solut... Tue, 28 Dec 2010 17:01:01 EST Bondage http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3866420 HAHAHA, now that I got your attention... <BR> <BR> Motorcyclists have a bond. Fuh real. If you ever pay attention on the highway when motorcyclists see another motorcyclist, they acknowledge them with a nod or a wave, and a smile. Kinda like saying, hey man, nice bike, be careful, and good seeing you. It's a recognition of another in the same situation as you are in and providing a little something to say hey, I feel ya, I'm in the same boat. <BR> <BR> Well, that being said, you guys here ...

Check Please. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3854047 Something my mother sent to me in an email that just keeps lingering in the back of mind. Inspiring me without even knowing it, especially during this time when I want to stay in the warmth of my bed, eat pizza, and eat my weight in cookies. <BR> <BR> "You have been destined to make it and you shall surely achieve all your goals." <BR> <BR> Re-read that sentence out loud now with me. <BR> <BR> I HAVE BEEN DESTINED TO MAKE IT AND I SHALL SURELY ACHIEVE ALL MY GOALS. <BR> <BR> <BR> Why hav...

In that case, take the time in your blog/journal/coloring book/napkin/this thread to list all the reasons you want to get to (or maintain your goal weight). BUT- for every healthy, noble reason you list- you have to list a superficial, just for giggles reason. Got it? <BR> <BR> For my Suck It Challenge, I am to list WHY I am doing all this stuff to myself and my body. <BR> <BR> I love these lists and if you have seen any of my previous blogs with lists, ...

WAIT...that means I have lost weight! WOOHOO! <BR> <BR> I ran 2 miles last night and was thinking wow, I feel a little lighter...but whatever, who really listens to that voice? Well tonight when I get home, we will find out. Either weight or me...

That's right!! <BR> <BR> I know I keep randomly popping in and out but I finally got all my shizz taken care of! The computer in my Jeep had to be replaced and now that's done. So while I've been M.I.A. I've been getting my routine ready...as well as my running training started so I don't kill myself in these upcoming races. <BR> <BR> 1.

This is going to be all over the place, because well, that's how I am right now. <BR> <BR> *STARTING GRIPE FEST* <BR> My Jeep stopped working the day before I left to go to New York.
