Disappointed but Determined!

Friday, December 02, 2011

I am disappointed with my weigh in results this morning as the scale shows I'm up 1.6 pounds this week! As I reflect on the past week, I can pinpoint a few times when I was as diligent as I should have been, so I will work on those areas this week. However, I did get my exercise in, so I'm not going to be too hard on myself... just seems like the last four weeks have been gain/lose/gain/lose which hasn't been the case in the past... I think I may have to adjust my caloric ranges! Any thoughts?

Everyone have a great day!!

    Hey--our bodies respond with downs AND ups--just hang in there and it WILL come off!

    I did shortened the length of my goal by 3 months. I think I also played with my calories burned goals. I reduced my calories burned goals even though I'm working out alot more than my goals. My calorie range was 1500-1800ish and I was losing so slowly even with all my workouts. It's now 1270-1620. This range is working out much better for me.

    I had that gain last week. As fast as it came on, it came off (plus more). I just adjusted my calorie range this week. I bumped up my goal date and it reduced my range.

Snow Day....

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

What of the perks of being a teacher is the occasional/unexpected snow day! Guess what that's exactly what I have today. An unexpected snow day... normally I'm not a big fan of snow days, but am going to be thankful for this one, as it allows me an extra day to get some "stuff" done at home and also rest up, as I've been fighting a head cold (or something) for a few days and it seems to be winning! I have a hair appointment this afternoon and weather/roads permitting may get to make an extra trip to the gym.... So, I'm going to get busy and enjoy my first snow day of the season!
Everyone have a great day! emoticon

    Wow, you have a snow day already! The only thing I don't like is making them up at the end of the year. I do enjoy them when they come, though. I hope you enjoy your day! I live in the Chicago area, and it isn't snowing yet. Good luck driving out there! emoticon emoticon

Love yourself enough to do whatever it takes to be the best you can be.

I chose this quote for today, as a reminder to myself to be mindful of not only what I eat but what I do day in and day out... so that I can be the "best" I can be!

Have a blessed day! emoticon

Wise words...

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.- John F. Kennedy

What a great quote for today and the rest of this wonderful season! It's not enough to express our gratitude we must choose to live a life of gratitude!

Blessings!
