What is Courage???

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I thinks that Mark Twain said it best when he said courage is resistance of fear,mastery of fear, not absence of fear. This weight loss journey is going to take more courage than I THOUGHT was needed. Spark friends help me out send me some spark fire!

I am slowly getting back on track I have started walking again and my food intake has been weird I haven't been minding what I buy lately. I still feel great even if I am back at ground zero.
I went on facebook and saw a blog of a friend and she has lost weight and shared her story on a blog, encouraging, also I have paid my Zumba schedule for next month and I will have some young girls I am mentoring with me so that will be good....

Okay here it is ....I need to know some healthy snacks to eat that are not gross.
I needed to take more pictures and to have a piece of clothing I am looking forward to fit into not a hundred pounds down the road.
Spark friends I need your prayers, success stories share them in my inbox, Go! Go!Gos! and Ra Ra Ra's!

There takes courage to say what you need or to admit where you are lacking but 2013
is my year I am going to shed some weight...

    I hope you've had enough fire to get you through these past few months. I motivation tends to come and go. But as long as I never give up and resign myself to obesity for life then I consider it a good day. Best of luck to you on your journey to health.

    Don't give up - I myself am just starting back up again with exercising after a hiatus. But no matter how many times you fall down, get back up and continue your journey. You will reach your destination!

    A real important key is watch those serving sizes because some of these snacks give you 2 things and calorie counts are for 1 serving so you have to multiply x2 if eating both. I love cottage cheese (LOWFAT) WITH CANNED PEARS OR PEACHES. FRESH WATERMELON , LOWFAT PHILLY CREME CHEESE WRAPPED IN THE BUDDING DELI SLICED MEAT (TURKEY , CHICKEN OR HAM) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Keep up the positive thinking!

    As for snacks: 1) fresh oranges 2) Greek yogurt spiked with Splenda and low-fat unsweetened shredded coconut (I found it at a health food store) 3) baby carrots with a small serving of hummus or 4) Sliced apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter to spread on the slices.

    Hope it doesn't sound too gross!

    Good luck!

    Snack options: Nature valley has some really yummy granola bars, peanuts, peanut butter and jelly sandwich (1 tablespoon on peanut butter and wheat bread), fruit, skinny cow ice cream, fiber 1 brownies, The key is to make sure you measure/weigh the food and only have one serving. Best wishes.
