Good for you!

My goal is to eat only raw foods and I did that today.

For the first time in months I am taking some time for myself. A retreat was in order this weekend. Just a little time to clear my head of all the stress, get some perspective, set goals, and work toward them.

Feels pretty darned good to put me first for a while. Now I get to start getting down to the business of training for my first 5K which will be happening in March. Considering that I have a lot of weight to lose (I am at 370 right now) and I am extremely out of shape, I will need the time to build up to it. I'm doing it for me though.

*** Sharleen *** Motivational captain 30 something challenge

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Just had to share this. I went to Wal-mart and they had some clothes on clearance and well I love clothes (yes I am a clothes hoarder I know). Well they had these 2 skirts on the rack but they were a size small (3-5) and I was sooo sure they would NOT fit but I searched everywhere and could not find them in a medium sooo I decided to completely destroy my self esteem and try them on...Well I left the store with.....2 skirts!!!! They fit! I was so excited I almost cried thank you to this team and a thank you to sparkpeople!!!!

Remember, YOU ARE WORTH IT!

I put in a big effort at the gym - pushing myself!
15 rowing intervals - 45 sec on, 15 sec rest
Then some strength training
Then 30 minutes on the treadmill
and foam rolling!

I went to the grocery store today and stocked up on healthy foods: nonfat Greek yogurt, low fat cottage cheese, pineapple, bananas, blueberries, mini bagels and hummus. I am trying not to beat myself up over the fact that I am probably going to be over on my calorie count today. Trying to focus instead on the trip to the grocery store for healthy foods and also on the 40 minute walk that I took this morning. :)

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I got up early (for a Sunday) and made it to a warm 75 minute yoga class to start the day!

Yesterday I was frustrated because I've been gaining and losing the same four pounds over the last week. Well, yesterday I had some things to do around the house and I am usually so tired after each activity that I have to sit down and rest (especially since I now live in a three story townhome). Plus, once I sit down, I don't generally get up! Anyway.. was able to do the following in about an hours time WITHOUT sitting down and resting!!

1) Made three trips to bring up three boxes of my free weights. I carried 104 pounds over three trips up 1.5 flights stairs and I was breathing heavy but I didn't have to stop. THEN:

2) Cleaned out my kitty's automatic cleaning litterbox (washed it) and vacuumed the first level floor.

3) Washed a sinkload of dishes!!


WOOHOO!!! I wasn't as frustrated or upset about the weight gain when I realized I could do all of that!!

I was tired at work and really did not want to go workout. I did not let that deter me. I powered through 30 mins of strength training and 1 hr of water aerobics.

I made it through a 45 minute workout and managed to keep my HR down in the strength/endurance zone so that I did not over do it.

I started a new and much longer full body strength training program, fully equipped with new machines. I even had a friend who works at the gym teach my how to use them correctly. The one is funky and i thought i was going to fly right out of it!

Today I did a tape by Leslie Sansone that I haven't done in a while. It is 5 miles in 60 mins. I thought maybe I would only get through half of it, but I got through the whole thing and i feel awesome.

I made it through day 2 of my 3 days on 12 hour shifts, and somehow managed to get in a full 25 minute of strength, and 45 minute cardio workout.
