January 28th, 2013, Monday, 63 days until reaching the 1st goal post!! 5th Week! =O)

Here it is the day I knew would come when everything comes to a halt! No weight loss for me this week but I am way ahead of this game.... It will not deter me at all because I am better, stronger, wiser then that little ole scale, those numbers can not shame me down, they do not control my life, they do not make or break my day, they are just little guides to get me to where I need to be!!

I am smarter then the scale of injustice (ha ha ha) If the numbers could make or break me I would just put one foot on the floor to balance those number a tad bit lower for my own ego but that would just mess it up for all the weeks to come.

So I am going to waddle my fat a$$ down the stairs get back on the treadmill and make this day count too! Next week the numbers may be down soooo, Just going to keep on keeping on until I get to where I need to be...

Thank you for peeking on on me and my journey it's a slow one but it's better then having none. Peace.

Another day another foot in front of the other I must say I have been doing a fine job of exercising this month. I believe I have moved more cardio miles this month then I did all of last year! Good for me!

I know my heart, Lungs, sweat glands,vessels, nerve endings, ankles, feet, legs, fingers, head, brain & muscles have greatly appreciated the extra effort I have been putting in. Things seem to be working together, flowing free inside of me. Less pain, sleeping way better, deeper and longer.

Life ain't looking to shabby.... Just going to keep on keeping on until I get to where I need to be!

Another day another workout dang as of tomorrow I will have completed for the 1st time in my life a full month of keeping a new years resolution, crazy after all these years it would take this long to be right in the mind and the body to follow.

I am confident this is not just a phase or just another failed attempt, this is the me I have always wanted to be, I am finally developing into what my mind has thought about, I am putting those thoughts into action.

Not really sure why it would not all come together sooner in my life guess it just wasn't time yet. Well world it's my time to shine! So going to keep on keeping on until I get to where I want to be, I am focused, I have a destination and I am making this happen here and now. Great Job!!

It is Thursday and my butt is dragging not sure could be the cold outside or winter blues or just plain worn out.

Would be nice if I didn't have to work for a living maybe devote myself to charity origination and work my way to fitness... I could enjoy that life for a while.. maybe? Would be nice to give it a go... anyways going keep on keeping on... Peace to you!

February 3rd, 2013, Sunday, 57 days until reaching the 1st goal post!! 5th Week! =O)

Sunday that's my fun day going to go for a run on the treadmill since it is snowing out and it is very chilly, icy, etc... Fear no injury this way.. I have really enjoyed moving my body I think I am doing a GREAT JOB!! It has not been to bad getting the heart pumping, I am 48 years old and I think this is the most I have worked out "Cardio Syle" since high school and that wasn't every day.

I won 2 physical fitness awards back in the 70's and dang working my way towards a 3rd one! I even smoked back then I am smoke free today, will stay that way for the rest of my time on this earth. (high 5 for me)

The most important part is writing my FOOD INTAKE in my daily journal, I don't dot all the i-s , or cross all the T's but if it goes in my mouth it gets scribbled down. Like the line below says my body is keeping an accurate journal. No minimizing my food intake if it goes in my mouth I write it down!!

No more FREE grazing, I add everything in my food tracker here on the spark & I see it on paper, I am more aware of what I eat, the amount of what I eat, the calorie and carb count of what I eat, now I am looking for ways to eat more of the natural better stuff and slack off the packaged stuff, because I can eat more of the natural stuff for less carbs and calories. Kind of like a good sale... eat more pay less!

I am VERY surprised HOW MUCH I was eating (shoveling in my mouth) without any accountability in a single day!! Less then 2 months ago I DID NOT log ANYTHING but my body sure did!!! Ouch!

I have also been taking a teaspoon of fiber with my meal or just when I feel real hungry no cals no carbs and boom I feel full shortly after, I am really liking that also!!

Big changes are starting for me big changes!!! Thanks for reading, may your journey be a joyous one...

Your body is keeping and accurate journal regardless of what you write down.
