The long road to SUCCESS!

Thank god there is Sparkpeople! I tell myself that everyday. The motivation from others is priceless. I am going to get where I want to be with my weight, its just going to take some work and its not going to happen tomorrow. It takes time!!!

Update: January 2nd, 2014
All I am going to say is I am back at it and ready to lose these pounds. If I read my past posts, that is exactly what I was going to say. Practice what I preach and stop listening to my inner critic!!!

Update:October 4th, 2013
I have slacked all summer long...but I guess on the bright side. I really maintained during the summer. I have been hovering around the 220's. Now its time to get back at it. My pants are feeling a little tight and I do not want to gain the 7-10 pounds that the average person gains during the holidays. Need to get my discipline back. So here is to a happy Friday and the start of a great journey to the onelander's.

Update: August 21st, 2013
I have been away since about May, but I am back now and ready to continue my weight loss journey!!!

Update: April 24th, 2013
Down 31 pounds and feeling great! I am signing up this week for a 5K race. Start training this Saturday with a group, but I should get out tomorrow and get a head start. Last 5K I ran my time was 45:00 minutes. So obviously my goal this time around is to beat that time!

Update: March 26th, 2013
Another month quickly coming to an end and I am very happy with my progress this month. I am down 22 pounds and feeling great! I feel a difference but not really seeing a difference yet. Trying not to live by the scale, but finding myself wanting to jump on it and see where I'm at. Last couple of weeks have been difficult with tracking calories and intending on getting back on track! I am ready for April!

Update: March 7th, 2013
March has started out well. I am working out 6 days a week still and its becoming more of my daily routine. My kids know my routine too. Once they see me pushing the couch out of the way, they know mommy is getting ready to workout. I am not really on a scheduled fitness program. Just picking out whatever sounds good on that day. I am going to order the P90X program. I borrowed some of the DVD's to try it out. I love it and want my own. Lets hope for continued success for the rest of this month!

Update: February 23rd, 2013
Feeling proud of myself. Coming up on the last week of February and my last weigh in. My total so far is 7 pounds down for the month. Hopefully I can add to it on Monday. Going to step my game up on Monday and start the P90X program. I have three months till my birthday and would love to be down a pant size by then. So here is to hard work and healthy habits! Wish me luck!

Update: February 7, 2013
Happy with my progress so far. I have completed 2 weeks of tracking my fitness and nutrition. I am feeling good and actually looking forward to working out, which is a big deal for me. Going to up my cardio and would love to try Turbo jam. Will have another update at the end of the month on my progress. Happy sparking!

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Hugs,
Pixie
