Fall Fitness Frenzy close up

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Time to recap my BL Challenge

I made simple goals again; I wanted to get better about my diet:
- track my foods -- goal not met
- have more fruits/veggies in my diet -- goal not met
- limit the coffee or elimintate it completely again -- goal not met
- I wanted to get active again despite my foot condition -- doing some but still not consistent enough to count.
- get closer to One-derland -- actually gained weight

Well, even though I have not acheived any of my goals, I haven't considered myself a failure;
I have continued to live my life and know that this is not an easy journey.

    You are right...you ARE living your life. And life is all about accomplishments, trial and error, goals..etc. Part of life is learning and growing and picking ourselves back up when we stumble. You continue to do that....you emoticon forward. I am proud to be a diamond with you. Stay strong Diamond girl! emoticon emoticon

    The others are right: you are still in the game and showing up for life! In my book, you are a winner who puts one foot in front of the other every single day. I am proud to have shared in your blog, the comments left and in being one who now considers you friend!

    What's most important is that you are still here. You're still trying. We all fall down sometimes, but what matters most is that we get back up and try again. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fall Fitness Frenzy Goals

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Let's see what I can accomplish this challenge; trying to stick with the basics again:

1) TRACK MY FOOD! Remember "If I bite it, write it!"
- have more fruits/veggies in my diet, limit the coffee or elimintate it completely again

2) GET ACTIVE AGAIN!
- Remember that any activity is better than none. I can't run for a few more weeks, if I can at all this challenge. Saw my Podiatrist on Friday and I have an Achilles Tendinitis
- I can only do non-weight bearing fitness ... swim or cycle for Cardio and ST that doesn't put any pressure on my feet.


I want to reenter One-derland again; so time to get back to the old tried and true method: "Eat Less; Move Around More"

    Love your enthusiasm! I have some issues with my Achilles
Tendons as well, but maybe less severe than yours.
At any rate, I don't think I have ever worked out harder than I have in a pool.

Good luck and I am sure you'll hit your goal!

Update on Sizzling Summer Slimdown

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

I made simple goals again: “Eat less; Move around more” and actually Track my foods
I was doing fairly well with this… I suppose; I didn’t really seen any weight loss but I was maintaining my weight so I guess that I was happy.
THEN…
Developed Jogger’s Heel (this is more fun to say then Planter Fasciitis). I have been on “injured reserve” & wearing a brace for the past week.

I am finally feeling better; not having to walk on tippy-toes for too long after waking. Even climbed a few flights of stairs yesterday afternoon. So I guess it is time to be able to start doing some FM again; hoping for a better challenge this fall.

    Oh, Amy!! I hope you are on the mend. I know how much you love running. Hopefully you are back to it in no time. I agree with Martha, maintaining is a victory in itself.

Looking forward to the next challenge with you!

    I have the same issue, and it just seems to keep getting worse. Most likely I will need surgery to correct, but I limp through the days for now. Like you said, the mornings are the worst, but I also find anytime I have sat at my desk for more than an hour without getting up, it hurts then as well. It can wear you down after a while. I hope yours makes a speedy and hasty departure, though, and you can get back on track with your FM goals. Congrats on maintaining and see you in the Fall!

    I'm so sorry about your injury, I know how frustrating that is when we want to workout but our body doesn't let us! Way to go on doing a good job with moving more, eating less, tracking and maintaining! That is awesome!

Looking forward to kicking butt along with you and the rest of the Dazzling Diamonds this Autumn! Go team!

Sizzling Summer Slimdown goals

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I have decided to stick with the basics again:

1) actually TRACK MY FOOD!
- have more fruits/veggies in my diet, limit the coffee or elimintate it completely again

2) GET ACTIVE AGAIN!
- Remember that any activity is better than none; Try to stick with running twice a week and do a video before work in the morning 5 days/week.

Just get back to the old tried and true method: "Eat Less; Move Around More"

'Spring into Action' update

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

I made easy goals and ended up not even trying; I just stopped caring again; I let "life get in the way". I have to admit that I lost my Spark & I ended up gaining 7 lbs this challenge

But what did happen:
1.) I am letting go of the negativity in my life (or at least on a better road to this)
2.) I pray more (daily); even reading a daily devotional on an App on my phone

3.) Lastly, I AM FINDING MY SPARK AGAIN!

I seem to have forgetten that this is a journey, a life long one at that. I am not someone who will 'never have to work at it'. This will be an ongoing battle for me for always, I refuse to give into old ways and just stop caring again; I don't want to be that person again.

I have worked too hard to get where I am; need to remember how much I love where I am and who I am.

    So many of us struggled these last few months. But what matters the most is not that we fall off the wagon, but that we pick ourselves back up, dust off & try again. Life happens, we just have to do the best we can. We can do this! I believe you! emoticon emoticon
