Brrrrrrr...but beautiful..

Saturday, April 16, 2011

It's a chilly, but beautiful Saturday morning, made even more special by the fact that I'm surrounded by the laughter of my four adorable grandchildren, whom I'm blessed to be spending this week-end with!

I weighed in yesterday and am happy with my 1.2 pound weight loss, which puts me at 39.5 since I started this journey last fall!!!

  


Beautiful Saturday!

This has been an absolutely beautiful day, even though we had a thunderstorm mixed with hail around 6:30 this morning! (Even the storm was pretty)!! I hope everyone is taking time to enjoy these beautiful Spring days!

Zumba!!!

Friday, April 08, 2011

Last night was my second "official" Zumba class and I'm pleased with the progress I'm making so far. No, I'm not able to keep up with all the moves of my awesome instructors, but I CAN and DO keep moving the entire time. No, I absolutely don't make the moves look graceful and coordinated, but I CAN and DO attempt the moves, modifying where necessary! I love, love, love, music and wish I would've gathered my courage to try Zumba months ago, BUT the important thing is, I have now... and I'm not stopping!

I weighed today and am down 1.6 pounds since last Friday! I'll take that!
Everyone have a Spark-A-Riffic weekend!

A New Week is Dawning!

Sunday, April 03, 2011

It's Sunday night and as I prepare for my work week, I need to pause and focus on my health and wellness goals for the week!!! I'm learning that the more time I put into planning for a healthier lifestyle the easier it is to work towards those goals!!! This is the first day of the week and I PLANNED to drink at least 8 glasses of water (13 so far) get some exercise (walked 30 minutes=1.85 miles) stay within in my caloric range (still have 350 calories left before reaching the upper end) and journal!!!! I'm going to keep these same goals for the entire week!
Everyone have a sparkariffic week!

I'm so proud of you. You've figured out a plan that works for you and are sticking to it (even exceeding it)! Wonderful!

Weigh-In

Friday, April 01, 2011

Today marks the 5th month since I began my latest weight loss journey, although I didn't start using SPARKPEOPLE until February, so I decided to break my scale boycott and weigh.. I was down three pounds, which I'm okay with, BUT was really hoping for me, as I hadn't weighed since March 14th... However, when I look at the bigger picture I'm pleased with my 36 pound weight loss!! So all in all I'm happy!
My immediate goals include:
1. Continue tracking nutrition DAILY
2. Increase the amount of exercise I'm getting to daily and not just sporadically.
3 Lose 10 pounds in the month of April!
