  • I Am Not Stopping!

    8/20/2015 7:54:02 AM, by LISA1065

    I PLANKED, I PLANKED, I REALLY PLANKED! Okay, so it was only a 5 second plank, but after four months of trying, today, I was able to lift my body off of the ground. Yeah, I get that what I did is no big feat for some of you, but for me, it is a goal that I finally succeeded at, and I feel darn good ... Read more

  • Putting the Wind Back in my Sail!

    8/10/2015 11:56:56 PM, by LISA1065

    This week I reached the 50 pound weight loss milestone! More than a month ahead of my scheduled goal date. Needless to say, I was feeling very proud of myself! On Friday, we packed and prepared to attend the Asian Mission Forum. The hotel had a fitness center so I threw in my gym shoes and work... Read more

    8/10/2015 2:29:18 PM, by JOANN25

    I got off on the weekend and put on a little over a pound. What am I doing about it? Last night I printed out the menu suggested by Spark People for the week. I planned my meals for today and am sticking to it. I just read the challenge of closing the kitchen and turning out the lights after dinn... Read more

  • Day 16

    8/10/2015 11:52:17 AM, by GODRICKIMMY

    Managed to cycle for 50 minutes before it rained for the rest of the day. Felt great exercising in the morning, but then my stomach started feeling upset again, and the temptations set in. So now feeling quite low.... Read more

  • Day 15

    8/9/2015 4:08:25 PM, by GODRICKIMMY

    I've been so tired today because looking after my two young nephews is tiring. I went for a half hour walk at about 10am, but then when I got back I fell asleep til 12! After I woke up I decided to fit another walk in, so I walked another half an hour in the sunshine. I have been feeling a bit disc... Read more

    Another restish day for me. I didn't cycle or walk, but I did a cardio workout video, which was good. It has been two weeks since I started this fitness regime, and I'm proud that I've continued to exercise every day and made healthier food choices. I'm feeling a lot healthier and happier even ...

    Cycled for half an hour today. Couldn't do any more because I had my mum and my little nephews with me. Still, at least I did something :) It was a gorgeous sunny day for being out today, which helped. My issue sometimes is expecting myself to achieve the impossible, and disregarding an... Read more

  • Day 12

    8/6/2015 10:28:54 AM, by GODRICKIMMY

    Walked for 70 minutes this afternoon. I noticed that I was less out of breath when I was walking up hills and that I was feeling fitter than I have done. Met a guy on my walk who was telling me about all the cycle routes in my area, so that would be good to check out to change up my cycles. Feelin... Read more

  • Day 11

    Did some stretching exercises this morning, and then went cycling after lunch. Cycled for 70 minutes with a couple of breaks when I wore myself out. Issues - Cycling or walking up hills tires me out quickly. Eating the wrong things when I'm tired or emotional.... Read more
