Week 2 completed

Friday, October 31, 2014

I started a streak, which is going to the Y 3 times a week. I go there to use the weight machines, to build strength, and to firm and burn calories.
Started the streak to make me accountable to add weights to my fitness routine. Also, to make a new enjoyable change in my routine, hopefully keep me motivated, and become a new habit, like my treadmill has.
I did meet one goal this month, I wanted to be in a size 16 jeans, when I went to the doctor. No more elastic waist jeans for me .... Yeah!
Hope you all have a Spark-tastic weekend! emoticon

Smart starting a streak. In addition to the accountability and developing a habit I like to see how long I can make a streak last. Whatever motivates eh? :P

Thank you for your Wishes

Monday, October 27, 2014

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my friends for your prayers and good wishes since my last blog.
September, Paul's Mother passed.
October, has brought difficulties with my computer, had to send it out ... for repairs, but I am back, to continue my new improved healthy lifestyle.
Had my 6 month check up with the Dr. last week, he is pleased with my changes.
I have lost 20 pounds this year so far, by his records. My blood pressure is the lowest it has been in years. 112/72. Yeah! who says exercise and healthy eating doesn't work.
New Streaks: start this week since I am back
Eat as healthy as I can everyday
Go to the Y 3 times a week.
Hope you all have a healthy good week

Asking for help

Monday, September 01, 2014

It's the beginning of a new month.
I apologize to my spark friends for not be online much lately.
My S.O, Mother was taken to the hospital on Wednesday found at home unresponsive she had a stroke. Does not seem she will recover according to the Doctors. She is now in a Nursing home, on hospice. Please pray for her that she goes easy and quickly.
Love you all

    My prayers are indeed with you and your family at this time. Hold your faith strong and know that God has a plan for her. If her work is done here I am sure God will have mercy on her and bless her into His home. She will be at peace and rejoicing from above.

Weekly Weigh Day

Saturday, August 02, 2014

My scale is slowly moving downward just as I have planned. 181.4
I am working my way slowly to move my BMI out of the obese range.
I know I can be only overweight by the end of this year. Then my new goal will be to get to normal weight by my Birthday July 4, 2015.
I have my emotional binge eating under control... yeah!
I am being consistent on doing my workouts.
I am eating more real food and giving up processed food most of the time.

I feel better, I no longer wake up with aches and pain.
I can carry my groceries up the 13 steps without going one at a time.
I no longer get out of breath with daily activities.
Oh Yeah! Life is Good!
