February Focus ** Recap

Friday, February 28, 2014


No Spark T-Shirt for me...

That's okay.

Even though I did not lose 4 lbs, I became more fit and that's always a good thing.

The last week and a half of Feb. has been a difficult one with plenty of distractions that life can bring.

I haven't slept well which in return meant I didn't function well each day.
I was tired, anxious and thrown off.

I personally have not figured out yet how to *keep pushing* through it when things like that come up.

I can work on that for March.

That's "One True Thing" about Fat... It isn't going ANYWHERE until you work it off and evaporate it!
It's still there waiting for you!

I'm not giving up and that's an accomplishment! emoticon

I will do my best in March to hopefully see my breakthrough!

......Stay Tuned emoticon

Lost in Inches this week..
I'm thinking I gained muscle bc I can see it! LOL
171.0 lbs still **
Lost 1/2 in. off waist! ... Lost 1/2 in. off mid-section! ...
in some other places it wasn't a 1/2 inch, but it moved down a few marks.. emoticon

Yesterday was "Supposed" to be my *Rest Day*

Whatever! emoticon

Work was a NIGHTMARE! emoticon (Server at Cracker Barrel)

We had 5 Call Ins and we were Super Slammed!

When I clocked in at 5PM I had 6 tables sat all at once!

Once their drink order had been taken/dropped off and I was trying to get their food orders I was sat 5 more times!!

At one point I had 13 tables!

It went on like this for hours!! It never stopped or slowed down until 10PM (We close at 11)

I made $24 an hour last night and it kicked my tail I tell ya!

I'm sooooooo Sore today!

My legs feel like spaghetti noodles so today is my REST DAY!

February Focus ** Blog 2

emoticon emoticon

Saturday thru Today has been going GREAT!

My Spark Calendar was just the "Inspiration/Motivation" I needed!

I'm checking off my goal boxes and using spark stickers to mark my accomplishments and emoticon

One HUGE improvement is I have only had 1 soda in 5 days! emoticon

(I have always "fit my addiction into my calorie range.") emoticon

This has increased my water intake and also brewing tea PLAIN and adding a packet of splenda to my glass. (giving me more water/liquid there as well.)

I have not missed a work out and I'm pushing right ahead!

I'm actually looking forward to my weigh in on Saturday! emoticon

I feel better, my mood is uplifted and "I feel PROUD and Accomplished" which is half the battle to emoticon

emoticon Spark On! emoticon

February Focus ** Blog 1

I came to SparkPeople a long time ago - broken and searching for answers...

I was 197.7 lbs (my highest weight ever; I'm 5'8) and knowing I was about to hit 200 lbs was devastating!

I was naturally thin (size 0 and 1) and once married and after having our son my weight loss battle began. (gained 65 lbs..Came out of hospital a size 11)

Once finding SparkPeople, I got involved, bought the book and learned how to live a Life Style and said good-bye to dieting!

I lost 24 lbs and many inches!

Donated my size 16 pants and plus sized tops

I'm now a size 12 in pants and wear XL tops.

I'm so glad I have mostly maintained my weight for a while...

I have been gaining and losing the same 6 or 7 lbs.

I lost my focus and my energy.

Life can throw us some very big punches at times and I let that garbage take me over, knock me off track and I came very close to giving up.

I don't want to give up!

I'm going to FIGHT for what I want!

I WANT to be Healthy and Fit...

I WANT to Reach my Goal Weight of 148 lbs and go shopping for new and updated outfits that will show off my hard work and new look/body!

I WANT to Finish what I've Started!

I'm 40-years-old and this will not get easier.. The time is NOW!

It's time to get busy Livin' and Fight For What I Want!

I want to reach that 148 and then truly see what it's like to "Maintain."

For my February Focus I bought the Spark Calendar and I was so excited when it arrived a few days ago!

It Feb. 1st and Day 1!

My calendar is set up with my Goals and I will reach them!

I will work hard to lose 4 lbs this month and when I succeed I will Reward myself with a SparkPeople T-Shirt!

Ready * Set * Spark!!

    Stacy - you are amazing. I know you will succeed in your goals. I would love to be under 200 pounds and a size 11. By the way I am only 5'3". Hugs. Mary
