365 Days

Saturday, July 07, 2012

(As of yesterday-7/6/13). In 1 year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, no matter how you put it, I will be strutting my stuff down the aisle to get married. Unfortunately I haven't made a dent in my weight loss, so that I can look awesome in my dress. Time for an overhaul, I need to buckle down and get super serious now, find my motivation and tell temptations to take a hike.

I may have come up with just the solution to help with that. While I've gotten better with my eating, (bought a lot of produce on our most recent grocery shopping exhibition), it's the motivation that needed work, and my remedy to this problem...music. Everyday I will post a different song in my SparkPeople status, and for that one song length I will walk, run, dance, whatever it takes to get moving. This is my stepping stone to eventually add more minutes and workouts into my day, and in the process, I'm hoping to motivate others as well. If anyone decides to join me in my personal music challenge, leave me a message on my Spark page and let me know what you did during that song. Now let's get up and move! emoticon.

    I know exactly what you are going through! I have a goal of hitting my goal weight by then. Even though my wedding is September 6, 2013. I guess it's just a little bit of cushion. lol

    But we can do this! emoticon

    Lol, I hit the $5.00 bin at Walmart yesterday and raided the 80's music cd's! (Yeah, I'm old, lol)
    Anywho, I got 32 upbeat, big hair songs for 15 bucks! I am ripping them to my computer right now and will be transferring them to mine and my beau's phone over the weekend!

    Oddly enough, with ALL the gigs of music on my computer, there is hardly anything that is workout-worthy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!! I love the idea of a song a day. It may be just a short amount of time, but it's better than doing no time. I might just have to give it a try.

    I see the effort you put forth all of the time, its the lapses that we need to curtail. We can have the treats that we often desire, but moderation is key and keeping each other balanced is how we keep that control. You have the motivation and the tools all around you and it is time to take another step forward. :) Love, Kernen
