Tomorrow is a new day....

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Today, I've had the desire to eat carbs, carbs, and more carbs, which I did... no excuses... just opted for carbs instead of the healthier foods I've been eating... Tomorrow is a new day and I WILL go back to my healthy eating plan.....

    I too felt like eating food not so healthy. Actually I wanted to binge on chocolate. Guess what, I didn't. I went to bed at 6:30 last night instead. I guess I was just tired. I slept good. emoticon

    Sometimes I think these setbacks are very important to continuing on. Hang in there, and you will do better tomorrow.

Progress but NOT on the scale..

Friday, June 17, 2011

I weighed in this morning, hoping to see a loss and was a bit disappointed to see NO loss!!! This is the second week of little or no loss and IF I weren't positive that I'm doing what I need to do to get healthier I just might be upset... but I know I'm doing what I need to be doing... so instead of getting angry, I got my tennis shoes on and headed to the gym....
I'm confident if I keep on keeping on, the scale will eventually catch up with ME!!!
This week I've tracked my food daily and stayed with-in my calorie range.. one area I'm going to work on is getting ENOUGH fiber, as that is one area I fell below the mark... I consumed a minimum of 14 glasses of water DAILY. I also went to the gym DAILY, twice on Zumba days, (my gym workout consists of a daily dose of cardio (30-45 minutes) daily as well as a strength training- one day upper, then lower, core, etc.. (Zumba is twice a week for 60 minutes.) So, I'm confident that I'm doing what I need to do, but will continue to check and recheck my food journals as well as my exercise logs, just to make sure I'm not missing something!!! In the meantime... I've put the scale away until we meet again next week!!!

    Keep on keeping on! You've got this. Things may not be moving on the scale but I bet you feel great. Clothes fitting better etc. That scale will follow. It sounds like you have the exercise part down, the scale is bound to catch up. Have a wondeerful weekend.

    Sometimes it just takes time, best not to worry, but I know, easier said than done.

    Sounds like you are doing great. You know you are not dieting so what's the big deal with no weight this week. You know your body will release the weight when it gets ready. I'm saying this to me also its been three weeks since I have lost any and I know I am on my program right. I did start more exercise this week and I will see what happens. We will have a great year. Thanks for sharing.

Monday Blessings...

Monday, June 13, 2011

We had a wonderful time in Silver Dollar City with our middle grandson! I wish I would've had a pedometer on to see how much walking I really did! If you've never been to Silver Dollar City, I strongly recommend it, IF you enjoy taking a step back in time... It's awesome! Yesterday we met our daughter and her family in Springfield and were able to spend a few hours with my oldest grandson and only granddaughter!!! It was great fun seeing the three little ones together... I am truly blessed...
Now, I must get myself to the gym and get some energy flowing through this tired body!!! Everyone have a spark-a-riffic week!!!

A small loss...and yet a victory!!!

Friday, June 10, 2011

It's Friday and for me that means weigh in day... I managed to lose a mere eight tenths of a pound this week. Of course, I wanted more, but I finally realize there is more to getting healthy than a number on the scale and that helps me see the BIGGER picture!!!! So, I've recorded my weight loss and am getting on with my day, which includes spending time with two of my beautiful grandsons and having the energy and mobility to truly enjoy my time with them!!! Oh yes, there are much more important victories than the number on my scale!!!
Everyone have a great week-end!!!

I weighed in this morning and was thrilled to see that I'd lost 3.6 pounds this week, which means I've hit my mini goal of losing 50 pounds!!!!! I'm actually down 50.3 pounds since I started on my weight loss journey in November! (a little under 30 since joining SPARKPEOPLE on February 5th)!!!
I will continue to work on my next mini goal which is to NO longer be considered obese on the BMI scale... but to be overweight... that means I need to lose 17.4 pounds....
For me mini goals are so much more doable than saying I need to lose sixty more pounds..

Everyone have a SPARK-A-RIFFIC week-end!!!!

    I am utterly amazed, so I went to your shared food and fitness tracker. Wow, I can see how you did it!!! It is great that Spark has this feature. I am so proud of you. Any secrets to how you were able to eat so wisely???

    You are doing awesome! I too like to use the mini-goals. My mini goals are usually monthly because I like short term results ( and I like to reward myself). Keep up the good work.

Mini goals work better for me too. It doesn't seem so over whelming.
