We Make Plans and.......

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I'm learning not to beat myself up. When things don't go as planned, I've learned to let it go. This is an ongoing process and it's not an easy one but I'm enjoying the experience. My plans did not go as planned during the last month.

I did not start Fe Fit as I planned to. I had to travel to the west coast for work so that sort of threw me off. Not that I didn't get any movement in. I walked to and from work daily (1 mile a day). After work, I explored the town. Loads of walking. On my last day I found a Dailey Method studio. Damnit!! Had I known, I could have bought a pass for the time I was there. No regrets though, I walked.......a lot.

Now I would like to get on track with something more structured. My plan is still 60 minutes a day. I plan on starting Fe Fit, incorporating Kundalini yoga and whatever else strikes my fancy. I'm looking forward to the journey.

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you will accomplish.

Back at it

Friday, March 14, 2014

On Sunday I start a new rotation. I ordered Fe Fit and the workouts are 30 minutes long. Why is this important? It's important because my new job is in DC and I don't get home until 5. I only have 1 hour to exercise each day. For me, it needs to be 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of something else. So for the first time ever, I will be following a set rotation.

I also ordered 2 Kundalini yoga dvds. I'm looking forward to the breath work and mantras. I need that in my life.

So starting Sunday, I will go forward and start my new rotation. I will not beat myself up. I am positive this is what I need to restart and get back on track. I am ready for this right now and I am excited to get back on track.

My rotation will be Fe Fit, Leslie (at least for the first 30 days) and Kundalini yoga. Fe Fit is a 90 day rotation and I will need to work around my trip to CA for work. I'm thinking I can take my portable dvd player and use the company gym should it be a day I need those 3lb weights. My spreadsheet is ready for action as well.

Onward and upward!!!!

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.

I don't make resolutions

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

I have not been around for a while. Things have really sucked since September. So here's the short version - I went to the Outer Banks on vacation, I got laid off from work and I was diagnosed as diabetic. Can you say when it rains it pours?!?! Naturally trying to process all of this sent me into a tailspin.

It did not stop me from pushing my resume out or any of the things I had to do but everything else was a no go. So here we are in a new year and I'm determined to get off my arse and get back on track with my exercise regime.

I have done my 2014 exercise tracker and realize that after 3 and 1/2 months I will be forced to start off slowly. So 30 minutes a day for 6 days with 1 rest day (or yoga/stretching day depending on my mood). I will only do rotations 30 days at a time so I don't get bored......I'm having some issues with boredom at the moment.

To start:
Week 1 and 2- Leslie and walking for cardio (30 minutes)
Week 3 - cardio 45 minutes per day (this will depend on how I feel)

Feb - I hope to start the 28 to Great rotation (Barre3)

Mar - TAM and 30 minutes cardio

I don't have a job yet but I hope this changes in the next couple of weeks. So in other words, I'm attempting to stop wallowing in my ish and get my rear in gear.

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.

4lbs Down, Bad News and New DVDs

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

I finally got to weigh in this past weekend. I lost 4 lbs and hit my 5%. I'm now working on my next 5%. Woo Hoo!! Go me! Yes, I'm celebrating me!

I also got some bad news last week. My position at work is being eliminated so I'm looking for a new job. I hope to get something within the company I currently work for but also looking outside for something. I'm staying positive and refuse to allow this or anything else get me down. I refuse the negative thoughts that have time to time popped into my head since Thursday. I will not allow crappy thinking. I will continue to meditate and keep positive people and thoughts in my day to day life. I have applied for 2 positions within and hope to get one of those positions. Please send positive vibes my way :-)

In other news, I bought 2 new DVDs last week and received them today, 5 Mega Miles with Leslie :-) and Tracy Anderson Precision Toning. I'm not done with my TA rotation yet so I won't be trying the new TA in the next couple of weeks. However, I have an appointment with Leslie this week. I love Leslie, she is so positive and upbeat, it never fails to put me in a good mood. And, at this time, I really really need that. On my radar are the 2 new Leslies coming in October and December; my my Leslie has been a busy bee :-). Not much else on the radar for the rest of this year.

I'm headed out of town on Sunday and will be gone for a week. I plan on working 4 hours per day while I'm there. I have to transition my stuff over to another person :-(.

It is what it is.

Have a fabulous week!

    First congratulations on your 4# loss that's truly awesome!!! Secondly, your positive attitude will get you exactly what you need. I heard an minister say last week, instead of complaining and worrying about the job you just lost...take that moment and have a short sad moment then ask God where you want me to go now!!! See it as the door of opportunity!!! I know you'll be blessed with the job of your desire.

    emoticon 4 Lbs is a big deal, it's time to celebrate that victory! In the other hand good luck in the two positions you apply within the company. Keep the positive thoughts and good things will come your way.
Great DVD's have fun!

Menu, Protein Shakes and No Weigh In.......

Sunday, August 18, 2013

yet. I went to WW to weigh in yesterday but the center was closed. I tired to call this morning but got no answer. I will try to weigh in again tomorrow. Fingers crossed I'll hit my 5% goal.

On to protein shakes. I started by using Vega but it was pretty expensive. So I moved to Nutribiotic Rice protein. It was less expensive and mixed with coconut milk, doesn't taste too bad.

I also bought some RawJuvenate green pea vegan protein. This is really expensive so I probably won't repurchase. Using RawJuvenate, I add CocoVia unsweetened dark chocolate powder.

Anyway, I received a sample of Garden of Life raw meal in vanilla chai. I liked it so I headed to the Vitamin Shop and bought the small in chocolate. I always add chia seeds, maca and ground flax to my shakes along with my coconut milk. The thing is it seems to come out so thick!! More like pudding than a shake. I'm not sure what to do. I guess I'll have to experiment until I find the right mix.

On to this week's menu. It's a quick easy menu which I love and still healthy.
Menu -
Chicken breast in gravy with mashed potatoes and veggies
Spaghetti with meat sauce and Texas toast
Beef and Bean enchiladas
Sausage Rice
Chili Dogs with vegetarian beans

Of course everything is lightened up but still tasty. Just ask my kiddo. He loves them all!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking forward to cooler weather because I can't wait for soups and stews. Hooray for one pot meals!!

I'm still doing cardio, yoga and TAM for exercise. I've not gotten bored as of yet so I hope to stick it out. I'm still looking forward to the Barre3 28 Day Challenge after I'm done with my TAM rotation. I also have a gift card for a month of Charlotte Dodson's yoga tv. Unfortunately I have to use it by September 30th or lose the benefit. I guess I'll use it before the 30th.

I have decided to pre-order Leslie's new 5 Mile Walk and Tracy Anderson's Precision Toning, this gives me something to look forward to in September.

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.
