Once Weekly Weigh Ins

Saturday, March 07, 2009

So, I have decided to make once weekly weigh ins part of my theme for March, and to continue it forever. I am really struggling with this decision. I find it so hard to stay away from that scale! However, I know that it will only benefit me to stop weighing myself every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times! I know that when I weigh in and I have dropped weight, it makes me feel like it is okay to indulge. If I am only weighing in once a week, it will take away that temptation because I want to be CONSISTENT, and not yo yo all the time. Also, it helps me focus on the other things about being healthy that are important to me. So, as hard as this habit is to form, I know I must stick with it, and make it happen!


Dining out in style

Friday, March 06, 2009

So, I went out for lunch with a couple of friends today, planned it earlier this week. We agreed ahead of time on the restaurant we would choose, so I went online and planned my meal ahead of time. I logged in on my nutrition tracker and worked my day around it. Then, my DH came home from work and suggested a night out for supper! I was surprised, because we had discussed our dinner for tonight last night. But, it sounded like fun, and we haven't done it in ages(eat at a restaurant as a family that is, for anyone with ideas of what "it" might be!lol). So, I hopped on the internet again, planned out my meal, and brought home the extras to have later! I even portioned them out and put them in the fridge! I am right where I wanted to be for my calories today, and I didn't go too too super high on sodium either. It's all about planning ahead baby!

Journey buddy back in action

Thursday, March 05, 2009

My best friend that I walk with twice a week fell over 2 weeks ago and bruised her tail bone and hurt her lower back. Today was the first time she has been able to rejoin our walks. It was so awesome to see her, and walk and talk and just hang out! I missed her so much! So, it was great to see her back at it and swap notes. Thanks for the walk friend!


Terry Fox Run

Sunday, March 01, 2009

emoticon I am getting very pumped about jogging the 10K route of the Terry Fox Run on September 13 of this year. It is on a Sunday, and we will be at home, so I will be able to participate. I am going to start telling people about it now, and get as many people cheering for my buddy and I as we cross the finish line. I am visualizing the two of us completing it together, maybe our husbands will join us too! I mentioned it to my dear hubby yesterday and he sounded interested and intrigued. I can just see all of our kids cheering us on! I have been working on my jogging, and I feel like I will be ready to do this in six months time, and I know that by going slow, and working together, my buddy will be ready too! This is a cause that is close to my heart. I have wanted to run in the TFR(Terry Fox Run) since I was a teenager, but I have never been close to the shape I need to be in to achieve it. Also, I lost my Nana to cancer when I was in my early twenties. I admire Terry Fox immensely for his grit and determination. I am hoping to raise at least $100.00 for Cancer research and the work the Terry Fox Fund does in our country. A friend of mine has the support of this fund to attend university on a scholarship, and has participated in the 2008 Terry Fox Run to show his appreciation. He has braces on his legs and walking is very difficult for him, but he persevered and succeeded! He is an inspiration! So, enough for now, I am just very excited about this upcoming challenge, and look forward to it's culmination. emoticon

    I am so proud of you!! You have done so much for yourself and you should be proud as well. Remember when you were happy that you ran 1/4 mile? Now a 10k? That is awesome. You have stuck with our challenge and I am so happy that we are finishing it out. Training for a 10k will only make sticking with you running easier and more motivating. Are you going to do another 12 weeks with me when this one ends on 3/24? Let me know. emoticon

Many Thanks

Saturday, February 28, 2009

I am so grateful for all of the kindness and support I have received here on SP. I can not thank you all enough for cheering me on. I have had a rough time over the last week, and during my struggle I reached out for help on a few huddles. What an awesome outpouring of support from so many people, and also from people in the challenges I have joined as well as my Journey Buddy, and the people around me at home. I am back on track for the whole day today and feeling so pumped. I believe in myself again, after feeling very discouraged, and I am ready to go the long haul and make this my lifestyle, not just a short term change. Thanks again for all of your help, I really am doing this, and wouldn't be if it weren't for all of you! emoticon emoticon
