My Mantra when I want to go off plan:
Just remember that the small satisfaction I will get in eating off plan is NOTHING compared to the longer lasting sadness I will feel AFTER I give in.
The good feeling is short lived...the bad feelings are what weigh me down.
This is gonna be hard but worth it.

We are driving out to Denver to see family for Thanksgiving. How I wished I was further along on my weight loss journey before we meet up with all of them! Can't look back, though- only forward!

I have 19 days to make a few changes, and I will need as much support as I can get! Here are my plans:

1. WATER! Drink 6 full ones each day
2. NO EATING AFTER 7...peroid...no matte what!
3. THINK...HAVE A PLAN...TRACK!
4. EXERCISE- time is so limited these days, but I vow to sneak off to exercise whenever I can. Informally, I will move as much as I can throughout the day- quick sets of exercises, walking to preschool, parking further away.

I am trying to fill my glass of life one drop at a time! It is a long process- I am constantly reminded of that! But, last year about this time, I started giving up and waiting til New Years...I refuse to let myself do that again this year! I am not sure what the scale will do and I can't be ruled by that. It hasn't cooperated much, no matter how hard I work. I just need to keep adding drops of success to my glass of life and soon- it will be overflowing! I may never lose as much weiight as I want to, but I will feel better knowing I didn't abandon my dreams again!

I needed SPark to keep my on track. I will do my best to check in here as much as I can. It feels good to be in the safety and love of the arms of my Spark family!

Saturday, June 11, 2011 Sunny Gals Challenge Blog: A Goal and a Gain

I have gained so much since starting my journey with Sparkpeople!

One of the biggest things I have gained, that is completely a non scale victory, is my confidence and my ability to support people. I have learned that there is great power in watching- and helping- your friends inch towards success. There is great joy in supporting someone who is struggling with the same things I am.

I have had many weight related victories. There was a time, in my early SPark life, where I worked hard and lost 25 pounds and was only about 20 pounds from my goal weight. I was working out and stronger than I thought I could ever be. Then, I let myself get swallowed up in emotional and silly things, and I let all that progress go, and I have been struggling ever since. I had joined Sparkpeople when my youngest was three months old. Within my first year here, I lost most of my weight and was nominated a Sparkpeople Motivator. I was a challenge leader, and was having a great time meeting new friends and sharing my journey!Then, shortly after my one year anniversary here, I got caught up in a bunch of senseless, mean drama here, and I decided to leave Spark. I closed my page. Lost my Motivator award, felt like I left my family- I ran away. That began the downhill slide for me. Ater some real emotional struggles with this whole online thing, I have come back, and have kept at it...but I haven't been able to recharge my SPark as I had in the past, and I feel I have started to struggle with bouts of real depression. I recently got my Motivator award again- it meant the world to me. I had no weight loss to post or anything much to outwardly motivate people with, so the award came as a big surprise. But, one of my dearest friends, who saw me through all my journey, told me she thinks people can relate to me and my struggles. The last time around, I spent a lot of time cheering others on...this time around, I'v e spent time just being a a prt of something wonderful, and enjoying being here- and thankfully, people have shown me appreciation by voting for me. WOW. I appreciated that- and I embraced it. I am not alone- my struggles are not unique. But, I have seen the other side- the feeling of emerging to victory- the butterfly coming out of the cocoon feeling!

My Motivator award, along with all of my recorded history at Sparks, reminds me that I am capable and powerful...once I decide to own that! ANd I do! The award was the push I needed to get going again! It was the Spark hug I needed to make me feel that I have always belonged here at Spark- nobody ever should have scared me away!

So I do have the confidence that once my mind is made up, I can do anything!! My goal that I want to share? I want to leave the 170's for good...forever...never to be seen again. I feel that I am more ready than I was before, and once I lose the weight, all I have to do i scroll through my SParkpage and blogs and comments to realize how much I hate this extra weight and how much I don't want this unhealthy life anymore.

Mind over matter. I mind enough now to make my choices matter- that is what I've gained, and what the focus of my goal is.

The scale doesn't reflect who we are or how we feel - it's mealy a measurement of sorts - it's not of utmost importance!!! You have a great attitude. Don't give in to the scale and let your friends praise you - you deserve it.

I love your last paragraph: "Mind over matter. I mind enough now to make my choices matter- that is what I've gained, and what the focus of my goal is." Way to go and GOOD FOR YOU to come back and stick with it!

I'm glad you're back with us & that you've been re-Sparked. This is a life-long journey & there's so much to learn along the way. You've learned & grown from your past experiences & I'd definitely count that as a NSV!

You have such a healthy attitude. I know life is full of ups and downs but it is what we make of it that counts.

Ang - We are happy to have you here and part of the team. I always love your blogs and your perspective. You have always been an inspiration to me. It is harder for us because of the thyroid problems, but we can do it! It just takes us a bit longer.

What body type are you? How can you tell? Take our simple test and know! Learn how to train for your body type and what the differences are. With pics!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



By: Paul Becker


What Is Your Body Type?



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your score is 1.5.

Your body is between an EndoMorph and a Mesomorph. Choose a middle approach between the follow recommendations.

Endomorph: An Endomorph's biggest concern should be the losing of fat and adopting a lifestyle that keeps it off. Strength training should be done to get a better muscle to fat ratio and therefore improve metabolism. Use moderate weights at a fast training pace (very little rest between sets and exercises). You should lower your calorie intake (but not try to starve yourself) and should eat frequent but small meals. Sugars, sweets and junk food should be eliminated from your diet. Engage daily in some activity like brisk walking, biking, etc., and try to increase the amount of time you spend each week.

Mesomorph: Mesomorphs have a naturally fit body but to maintain it or improve it you should exercise and diet correctly for your type. Strength training can be done more often and for longer sessions then would be good for an Ectomorph, but you must still be carefull not to overdo it. You should train with moderate to heavy weighs and at a moderate pace, not resting too long between sets. You will find you gain muscle quite easy (some women and even men might not want to get too bulky, but this won't happen suddenly. When you are happy with your muscle size simply train to maintain it). Stick to a good healthy diet to keep you lean and muscular, and watch for any slow creeping fat gains. Engage in and enjoy aerobic activities, sports, etc. but do not overdo.

What I posted on 1/26/10....still in the same place, with the same thoughts!!! Older, a little wiser, and just a little bit lighter!
~~~~~~~~~

Thanks to everyone who gave me such a warm welcome to this team! I have been looking for a support group to get me through this 50 pound battle I am engaged in- and it looks like I landed in the right spot! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to be an active part of this team, even though my time on Sparks is not what I wish it could be!

My name is Ang...and here's a bit more about me....

1. Why is this challenge is important to you?

Last year, I made a bunch of goals and had a bunch of plans...but I didn't do much about them, and I ended up gaining a lot of weight- ON TOP OF WHAT I WAS ALREADY NEEDING TO LOSE! I feel like the time is really now for me to make these changes and get healthy and get my self esteem back! I wrote a letter to my bumps and bulges on my main sparkpage- that really explains how I feel about this whole situation and why I want to get it under control!

2. What obstacles do you anticipate that we can help support you with?

I am a huge emotional eater! Happy, sad, stressed, relaxed- it all involves food for me and I need to break that cycle! I am also struggling with thyroid issues. It is very hard for me to lose weight. So, I try so hard to focus and stay positive, but I do lose heart when I work hard and things don't seem to be going in the right direction. Please remind me not to quit!!

3. How would you describe your physical fitness ability as? example: Very Active, Moderately Active, Somewhat Active, Sedentary, Limited due to disability

I am moderately active, but plan to increase that! I quit my health club because it was too expensive- so I exercise at home- treadmill mostly. I am planning to add some running in the Spring and to RUN a 5k for Mother's Day! I am also going to start some weight training, using Spark as my guide.

4. Would you like to find a buddy? How do you think having a buddy would help you be successful in this challenge?

I would love a buddy. It helps me to stay focused if I am helping someone else...and when I know someone is watching me- I behave better! (MANY years in Catholic school taught me that!!!)

5. What would you like to set as a "REWARD" for yourself if you reach your goal of 50 pounds?

Aside from that feeling I know I will have- the happy, "comfortable in my own skin feeling" I can't wait to have- I am going to completely redo my wardrobe! No more baggy and black....stylish and fun is where I am headed!

6. What is your beginning weight? 180.2 UGH!!!

7. Optional: Your beginning measurements, list only what you feel comfortable with sharing.
I have these listed on my page under January Goal card blog!

8. What are some of your hobbies?
I have 4 kids, so my current hobbies are laundry, cleaning and carpooling!! Really I do LOVE to cook, and I love being creative- making things, painting, etc. I am working hard to decorate my home and keeping my family balanced and happy. We have a big spread in the ages of our kids-14, 12, 6 and 2- so keeping them all happy takes most of my time!! Someday, I hope to publish a children's book and paint!

9. What day and month is your birthday?
February 21


Other things about me:
I'm Italian- speak it fluently!

I am 43 and I stay home to raise my kids.

I met my husband and told him I'd marry him the very first night...I know a good thing!!

I'm 5'2"...so I don't have "room" to store all this fat- I look like an Oompa Loompa right now!

My biggest problem area- LEGS! I have thick, chunky legs!

Best area- I think I have pretty eyes!

I love coffee and drink WAY too much of it- I'm currently working on cutting back.

I would love to take some dance classes someday!

I would love to have a part in a community theatre production. I am so jealous of my 12 year old who loves to be in every school play! He has so much fun!

I don't get on Spark as much as I would like to, but I plan to be a good team-mate and reach some goals with a great group of people here!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!

Reading about how others have had success and knowing that one day that will be me. I have already started and 1/2 way there so I know it's working. Dropped 52 lbs now and only 42 more to go. Slow will get you there faster and keep you there...you learn along the way to a better health. emoticon bad habits for once in my life.

Thanks Sisemoticon feeling is mutual.

All my Spark Friends are in my Motivational Toolbox too as well as my healthy weight loss friends in my town

A slew of books, including The Spark are in that Motivational toolbox of mine too.

There is motivation all around me - it's what keeps me from giving up even when I am not making progress on my healthy weight goal.

I only have control over Myself. What I do, think, say, and EAT! I can do anything I put my mind to, and that includes losing the weight again! ...and if I wake up early enough, I am too tired to make excuses not to go to the gym! If I leave it till later, I know I can think of a darn good excuse. Keep trying, I am motivated by all you wonderful Sparkpeople, and hope to do the same ;-)

Great way to put it! I enjoy walking and although with health problems, it's a challenge, it does get easier with each walk, and that's motivation in itself.

I stopped weighing myself all the time because it was frustrating. Instead, I concentrate on wearing my pedometer and getting in 5500 or more steps a day, making sure I get my eight glasses or water, eating right and exercising more. Now it feel motivated and a whole lot better!emoticon

Tabata Strength Workout
The key to performing an effective strength workout using the Tabata Protocol is to choose a good exercise, because it’s a single-exercise workout. The best sorts of exercises challenge the whole body, are explosive (meaning you can do them at a rapid tempo) and may be done safely even when you are extremely fatigued. Many Tabata proponents prefer the front squat, explosive (or plyometric) pushups, and an exercise called the thruster.

To do a Tabata thruster:
Stand with your feet positioned a little farther than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed slightly outward. Begin with a light dumbbell in each hand, elbows sharply bent so the dumbbells are just above your shoulders.

Squat deeply, lowering your butt as close to the floor as you can while keeping your knees positioned as close to over your ankles as possible.

With a smooth, powerful motion, extend your hips and knees and stand fully upright. As you’re accelerating upward, use your core muscles and shoulders to transfer your body’s upward momentum to the dumbbells and press them overhead. Pause briefly, lower the dumbbells back to your shoulders and immediately squat again.






To incorporate the thruster into a Tabata strength workout:

1.Warm up by doing 10 to 12 thrusters without dumbbells at a slow tempo.
2.Assume the start position for the thruster exercise, making sure you’re in a position where you can see a wall clock to track elapsed time. Use a very light pair of dumbbells the first time you do this workout. If they’re too light, you can always increase the weight next time.
3.Do thrusters for 20 seconds at an explosive but controlled tempo. At the ideal tempo, you will complete eight thrusters in this time period.
4.Rest for 10 seconds by placing the dumbbells on a bench in front of you. Time your rest period so that you begin the next set of thrusters at the 10-second mark. Don’t time it so that you’re just moving to pick up the dumbbells again at the 10-second mark!
5.Complete a total of six to eight high-intensity intervals of 20 seconds, with a 10-second rest period after each. Don’t worry too much at first about how many reps you’re able to do — just stick to the clock and good form.
