The CONQUEST....What I will conquer in 2013 :)

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Hey SPARKERS!!! Sorry it has been quite some time since I have been able to connect with you all! I have not stopped tracking my calories. I have been keeping in my target range. I also haven't let up when it comes to working out....I actually just increased my intensity and weights this past week I have to say I am really workin it when it comes to this and I'm feeling great! I hope you all are doing great! I have missed being on spark a lot but at the same time it was starting to take up too much time away from my family, I also have a couple pages I am running online so I just dont get that much time to be on here. I feel like my little ones are only little for so long so I have reserved spending time online to only be when they are sleeping! So let me catch you up on whats going on with me! As I said before I'm still tracking everything! I ended 2012 in the 160's with a total loss of 204lbs. I hadn't lost a single ounce from that date until this week....finally a 5 week plateau was broken and I lost just over 2 more pounds putting me at 166.6lbs a total loss of 206.4lbs! I still haven't decided on what my ultimate goal is but I'm thinking 153lbs sounds good! That will put me at exactly 220lbs lost so that is what I'm shooting for! I dont have a certain date set to hit it I would love to hit it by my birthday in April but I will take it whenever it comes. I'm trying to not focus too much on the number but I sure do love seeing it go down. I'm in a healthy fat percentage range which is the main thing! I would like to wear size 8 jeans comfortably...I actually bought a pair at the beginning of the year. I can actually get them on and zipped but they are a little tight for my taste so they are currently my goal jeans so just trying to look good in those by my bday works for me.

Goals for 2013

*keep God first in everything

*be the best wife, mom, daughter, aunt, sister, and friend I can be

*inspire others

I have created a page on FB to help in this area of inspiring others! You are welcome to go and "like" it...I would love to have you there. My page name is called "Faith Fitness Fun & Fierce Weightloss Journey"

*to be wearing single digit jeans

*run a color run

*run a 10k

*to run a mud run but not just any mud run "THE CONQUEST"

The Conquest Mud Run is NEW this year!!!! I have been asked to join The Conquest team in running the FB page! If you "like" The Conquest FB page you will get to see my inspiring quotes I am very honored that I was asked to be a part of this. I was told I was chosen because of all I have conquered with this weightloss journey and that is what the conquest is about CONQUERING! I'm not gonna lie I am nervous about running this race but also excited about it and know I'm capable of more than what I think! The Charity this race supports is called ALLTIMATE BLESSING which is one of the reasons I'm so drawn to this race and so happy to be a part of it! This is an amazing thing! Alltimate Exteriors picks a family whos home needs major repairs or is just in horrible condition and they do a complete remodel very similar to extreme home makeover but not sponsored by TV. These people work so hard to bless families in need. They have done this for 3 families so far but it is hard to raise the funds to do this. The Conquest Mud Run will be a HUGE part in funding the ALLTIMATE BLESSING so of course i'm excited to be a part of that! You can see one of the families that has been blessed through the ALLTIMATE BLESSING by going to the link here

So thats whats going on with 2013 goals, my fitness page on FB, and this opportunity of being a part of The Conquest team which I still can't believe I was asked to do its pretty awesome to see that my hard work has not only given me this life I use to dream about being a fit wife and mom but now God has used it to open doors to bigger opportunities...I'm so blessed and thankful!

Here is the most recent full pic of work out :)

Hope you all are doing so GREAT! :) Thank you too all of my spark friends for continuing to cheer me on, send goodies, and comments to me even though i haven't been able to get back to you all I appreciate every single one of them!!!! You guys ROCK!!!

    I love that pic of you, you look so beautiful! And svelte, and slim, and healthy too! (Plus I love that you've got the gloves up -- like dude, bring it on!!)

    Great to hear that you are doing so well! I love your attitude. The run sounds incredible, especially since it supports a worthy cause! I understand how Spark can eat up a lot of time -- I don't have any little ones and already feel like it sucks me in too much sometimes! -- but keep us posted now and then so we know how your run goes!!

    I am so glad to see you check in, if even just now and again, as you have been my inspiration since joining SP a year ago. You look fabulous, and your good health has carried on into the best areas of your life - your family and faith. I am so happy for you! I think that it's only natural that our time here starts to wane just a bit as we continue to pursue balance in our healthier lives. So congratulations and kudos to you for staying true to tracking and your goals!

    Live your life to the fullest, like you are. Honor God in everything you do. It sounds to me like you are. You are so right that your kids are only little for a short while. My babies are 31 and 34 and I still feel like they grew up way too fast. I wish you the best in all you do. You are still a major inspiration to me. Thank you for being there for me when I was first starting out. It made me realize I could actually reach my goals. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
