Days 443-473 on the Journey!!- 69 days to a healthy B.M.I.

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Hey Sparkies,

I don't know how many of you are tired of hearing this (because I'm tired of saying it) but I have hit the reset button yet again.



Yep I've fallen off the wagon BIG time and have the weight gain to show for it. Anyway this morning I jumped out of bed and said NO MORE!! NO MORE eating like I don't know better!! NO MORE making excuses not to exercise!! NO MORE going into all or nothing mode when I have a slip-up!! NO MORE!!



I decided that I will not end this year worse than I started it. I am going to use these last 69 days to make a difference towards my goals. My new goal is to end the year within the healthy B.M.I. range i.e. less than 159 lbs. It can be done and I AM GOING TO DO IT!! I am declaring it here on SP and I'm counting on you Sparkies to keep me accountable. I'll try to make daily updates or at least every two days because I NEED YOU ALL!!

So far I have been 4 days strong with my workout and planning to make it 5 tomorrow. I restarted the Fat Burning Elite program for Turbo Jam and I'm loving it. I am as of today 1 day strong with my eating and tomorrow will be 2.

I'm pushing folks and I hope some of you will push with me. If anyone wants to set a goal with me so we can keep each other on our toes. Let me know!! emoticon emoticon

Days 431-442 on the Journey!!

Monday, September 22, 2014

Hey Sparkies,

I must say that things have been going well for me for the past couple of days. emoticon I got back on track with my workouts last week and since the start of the Fall 5 % Challenge on Saturday I've been on track with my food!! emoticon I am in the final week of the Maximum Results program for Turbo Jam and I hope to start Fat Burning Elite come Monday.

I'm still trying to rebuild my 4 a.m. exercise habit though and boy is it proving to be a challenge. I have yet to get out of bed when the alarm goes off at 4 despite trying for about 2- 3 weeks now. I won't give up however because I know that I've had the most consistence with my workouts during the times when I've gotten up at 4 to do them. I am going to try yet again tomorrow morning and I'll tell you all how it goes.

On the whole I'm aiming to hit my 5 % weight loss with this challenge because I know that I am more than capable if I put my mind to it.



I'm am going to be DETERMINED!!



Who's with me? Let's give it our all Sparkies especially my Awesome A's!! emoticon emoticon

    Had a great weight loss today for the first time in a long time! Then I had this huge birthday dinner tonight and it may have wiped it out! lol Oh well, I have a week to work on it. How does the 5 percent actually work? that 5 percent of your goal weight? or weight you have to lose or what?

Days 423-430 on the Journey!!

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Hey Sparkies,

What can I say? Despite claiming that I would, I HAVEN'T been making the most of September!! Unfortunately the balance is currently tipping in the favor of bad days over good ones. I've only had 4 good days compared to 6 awful ones. The month is far from over however and so I'm trying to kick my butt back in gear and be the me that makes me happy.



I'm so CONFUSED and FRUSTRATED however that I allow myself to slip into bad habits when I KNOW they don't benefit me in way, shape or form. They make me tired, cranky and depressed actually. Then on the other hand when I'm exercising and eating healthily I feel so emoticon in every aspect of my life so the question then is WHY???? Why do I make excuses when I should exercise and why do I stuff myself with junk? It's such irrational behavior but yet it keeps on happening.

Still while I try to figure this out I'm just going to try and refocus. Get back on track with my exercising and my eating one day at a time.



Let's do this folks!! emoticon emoticon

    That is the big question for so many of us. The other day I started by running 3 miles but somehow around 4 that afternoon, I ate almost half a box of mini Oreos. Obviously this self sabotage is coming from somewhere. I find myself saying things like - other people can go out and have a frozen yogurt or other people grab fast food for dinner because they have had a crazy, hectic day. But, I am not other people. When I make these choices, I gain weight. Period. Telling myself it is "unfair" doesn't change that. Dig deep, make the right choices. Instead of focusing on the bad days you have had, maybe you can challenge yourself for the rest of the month. Maybe if you have 20 good days you will treat yourself to pedicure or a new shirt. Focus on the positive choices you make and one will lead to another. You CAN do this!!!

Days 405-422 on the Journey!!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Hey Sparkies,

Boy has it been a while since I blogged. I guess I was living by the saying that no news is better than bad news because BELIEVE me these past 2 weeks ALL I had was bad news. I've just been eating out of control for the most part and last week I only got in 2 days worth of workouts. emoticon

September has begun however and I WILL make it an emoticon month!! I am officially one day back on track already!! emoticon (It should have been 2 but unfortunately yesterday followed the same vein as the previous 2 weeks) Anyway I stayed within my calorie range TODAY and I did my Turbo Jam workout despite feeling a little sick. emoticon I'm determined AGAIN folks and loving it. I just have to keep my eyes on the prize and always have my goals front and center in mind.



I also need to get rid of my all or nothing mentality because every single derailment from my goals and progress has been a result of it. I'm am going to



and



I will also be patient because



Thanks for your time and support y'all. emoticon emoticon

Day 404 on the Journey!!

Friday, August 15, 2014

Hey Sparkies,

I have been maintaining my staying with my calorie range streak and I am 4 days strong with today going to be 5. emoticon emoticon I am suuuuuuuuuuper happy about this because it so true that we should



and



Unfortuanetly my 1 day wake up and exercise streak didn't really become a streak because it didn't make it to 2 days. I had a HARD time getting up this morning so much so that I was even late for work. Anyway I won't let that get me down. I plan to get my workout in this evening when I get home. I'm looking forward to it because it will me my first time doing this video. Also



Anyway that's all for now folks. Thanks for your time!! emoticon emoticon
