Spark Earth Fitness Challenge

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

This site is so amazing. I'm constantly discovering new things. Today I discovered there isn't just Spark America fitness challenge which made me as a canadian feel totally out of the in crowd. : ) There is Spark Earth for the rest of us. WE can set a fitness goal for the year and it is tracked too. So I joined...because I'm hoping this will keep me looking at the big picture...not just exercising until the weight is off, but as a part of a daily lifestyle.

I'm kinda excited...they didn't forget us wee little Canadians.

I'm feelin kinda proud....Eh!

With my gym, my treadmill, my resistance bands and an assortment of dvd's I never have to leave the house if I don't want to. Makes it so much easier on the days I work.

The holidays caught up to me and jumped me!

Saturday, January 03, 2009

I so didn't want to write of my defeat by the holidays. I looked forward to a triumphant they couldn't get me blog. Alas its not to be. I stepped on the scale today and was up 3 pounds. I'm feeling bad about that...but the holidays were fun. I'm going to spend this week detoxing from all the delicious but horribly bad junk and sweet that has me craving constantly. Company is all gone as of today and I'm looking forward to gettig back into the groove. I'm in a distance challenge witht he New team and my goal is to walk, run, or swim 63 miles in January. I'm in a weight loss challenge with the Divine Divas at Fit, Fabulous and Forty and I'm hoping to drop 8 pounds this month.

Time to sit down and do some planning to make all this happen.

Waving to you,

Whooooooo HOOOOO yippie yahooooeeeeeeee!

I'm smilin my face right off!!! Having been sick the last couple of weeks I didn't get much exercise in and far too many times I blew it with my eating. Today I thought I have got to exercise sick or not. Then I thought I better look at the scale...
I was holding my breath and frantically in my mind saying don't be up, don't be up, don't be up. It never even occurred to me the scale which is so contrary for me...would go down.

But whooooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo it dropped 4 pounds. I couldn't stop smiling if my life depended on it. What a welcome, and unexpected christmas gift.

I'm really seeing the changes in my body and getting lots of remarks from other people so I'm feeling really good about what I'm doing.

Have a great christmas everyone.
big hugs
