So far since I have been working out changes that I have noticed include :

My tummyskin is pulling side to side when I do sit ups or the elliptical. I take that as its getting smaller and when I wear certain shirts they no longer hug my tummy like they used to and they no longer seem short but they have somehow gained some length.

I am now making the conscious thoughts of what I am going to eat, however what's going to fuel my body properly.

Little steps help to encourage you to make more little steps to see more positive changes!!!

I want to succeed. I am going to reach my goal!!!!

Counting down....

Monday, July 14, 2014

Why does it seem as if when the new year and our birthdays come is the time we really reflect and vow to make the new year a better year than the year before. I am counting down until my birthday on Sunday and what great way to start it on the beginning of a new week, new age, new year. I am just wondering what am I going to do to make the new year better than the previous year has been. January I set out to accomplish some goals before this birthday but I have not reached them.... am I disappointed? Yes and No. I am disappointed because of this yo-yo ride on this weight loss journey however at the same time we all know what they say if you are tired of starting over stop giving up. So I vow for this new year to stop giving up to keep pushing until I reach my goal. To surround myself with others who are living a healthy lifestyle so that I don't fall off of the wagon. And when I do reach my goal to keep pushing to maintain and stay a part of SP so that I can help others but also help myself at the same time. Today I saw a man in a wheel chair working out in the gym and here I am...... fully able yet I have not taken care of myself as I should!!! Its time for change. I have been doing well but I could be doing better.......working on me to get better, to be better and live better!!

    You definitely have the right attitude there! Keep the inspiration and each time we consider giving up we should remember the man in the wheel chair. emoticon

Trying to lose weight is a journey. Its a journey to see all that is wrong if you look at things a little more carefully. There are so many obstacles to get around to get to the gym when you are trying to workout. Friday I didn't work out because I had to do my car registration renewal after work that took me nearly 2 hours ..... then a meet up with a friend for a party.... Saturday I worked out twice but in the midst of going to workout a friend who I was supposed to meet up for a brief moment (who didn't answer their phone) called me when I was on my way to the gym and I made it emoticon out their way which then threw my plans out of sync. I am noticing that sometimes we make sure we take care of others and ourselves included, we still have to make sure that we get our workouts in and meals in and do what is best for our bodies.

Fitbits can be contagious......

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Ever since I have started using my fitbit other co workers have caught onto the buzz of wanting and purchasing one as well! Its fun to get fit together because we motivate one another by the dashboard. I am #2 right now out of 7 friends!!! My top friend has 89,000 steps from the last 7 days and I am following with 84,000! I have been getting over my 10,000 step per day challenge for the GiveIt100!!! I am going to keep going and get this!!
