fly by Friday

I am so glad that it is Friday. This week was a blur. I was on task a bit better than last week. So it feels great 2 know I am making progress. Our 1st real workout for the Sister LITE challenge is 2morrow. I am anxious to see how all of that goes. There is a weigh-in plus ....? UGh... I do not know what to expect that is the hardest part. 

The scale has been slowly moving downward and that is a great thing. I am excited about my journey. 

I did just dance for my exercise. IT has been awhile. It was fun. I beat some of my high scores, I think my body is moving better because of less weight and the fact that I am getting fitter. It felt awesome. I am expecting the BIggest Loser Challenge game in the mail from Game Fly. I hope I like it. I really enjoy using my wii to exercise. It is crazy that I have lost more weight since I froze my gym membership.

I had more on my mind but i am sleepy and will have to write more 2morrow...

No stoppin' me now...

         Another ok day. Nothin too exciting. Work was fine. Home time was good. I went to Wal-Mart and got a 2nd pair of weights. My week feels like I have been on track. I know I have my hands in so many fitness pots and that is keepin me honest and on track. I am excited about my SisLITE on Saturday. I am curious how the workout is going to be. I have had it happen where I feel smaller and stronger than I am ...but I will not let that deter me. I will keep at this. I will work daily to regain my health. 
            I just bought a package of Cross Fit Training. I can't wait to use it. 20 sessions for $40. I will be uber healthy b4 my 40th .... I may not be perfect but with all I am doing my body is about to change for real. NO more games. Looking 4ward to the weekend where maybe I can regroup and spend some time reading more blogs, responding, and writing more about where my head it at.

Day 12 - Fuel or filler

Notes:
Quality Fuel versus Filler... You need quality if you want your body to perform optimally. Duh. I think that as I get more in tune with mybody and more adept at healhy eating... this is all goin to get easier.
Action points: I have to look at food for what it doesn form y body and not for my emotions. I think when  I look at how I did food wise it wasnt too bad.

Day 11 - Two Purposes of food

Notes: 

2 reasons for eating. [1] to fuel my body [2[ to appreciate flavors, If not for one of those 2 reason, than I am probably emotionally eating. For now, I need to work on eating for fuel. Think of food quality. Eat more frequently.. to boost metabolism..
Action points: Journal when and what you eat. ANd make note of if I am eating at regular intervals. This was quite easuy as I have been keepin up with for awhile now

Did it anyway

Overall today was a good day. I had stuff to do and I got  it done. I also pushed thru a major barrier. I was so sleepy that I was falling asleep on the couch, but did i just go to bed. NO! I turned on my Wii and got my workout done. I know that this was due in part to me being in the Biggest Loser SLITE. If I didn't have to hand a workout sheet to my weekend trainer, I would have went to bed.

I read a blog that was talking about Sugar and thought the website they shared with worth re-sharing . It is called "Sugar Stacks" and it has lots a found how much sugar is in various items. Very eye opening for me. Check it out when you can a chance.

Day 2 of my 14 day detox. Breakfast was tasty but too high in calories. It did, however, keep my full for a large portion of the a.m. Work was un eventful. Just 1 kid and he was compliant. So all is well. Oldest daughter needs a sports physical so that is on my plate for the afternoon. Yay---NOT!

Day 10 - Appreciate Good Support

Notes:
Getting support is about give & take. Be willing to talk about your goals and plans. Remind ppl about NSV... less emotionally eating, having more energy, etc. Learn to receive compliments. Also do not minimize a compliment. by saying "Thanks but I have such along way to go." (GUILTY!!) Do not set people up. I.E. "Does this make me look fat?" (INNOCENT)
Action points: Ask a friend to compliment you, then practice your response.


-----not to sure about this one. Seems a bit cheesy for me. I think I take compliments pretty well---

Bring Your Own Crazy

Thanks to Fat In Suburbia for sharing this...

Let’s do BYOC Bring Your Own Crazy . We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break. Copy to your own blog and ENJOY!
1. Do you drink coffee? Decaf or regular? Cold or hot? If not – what’s your go-to morning drink?

My go to drink as of lately is fresh squeezed juices. Before that eother Coke Zero or Crystal light.

2. What are your top six characteristics in a partner if you could hand pick them. And just for kicks – if you’re in a relationship – after you make the list of six – does the person you are with possess all six?

  1. Honesty
  2. Generosity
  3. Loving
  4. Intelligent
  5. Hard Working
  6. Physically & Mentally Compatible

My husband possess all of these. Interestingly enough, when I was on the dating scene I had a list of 10 things... 10 deal breakers.He was the 1 that had all ten.

3. I’m going to pick a person – not knowing if this person even exists in your life – and you try to describe this person in 5 short words or sentences: Paternal grandfather

I barely knew him. He was not there for my father. And my father wasn't really there for his children growing up either.

4. What’s your signature item? Color? Piece of clothing or jewelry? Accessory? You know – that one thing people know you will ALWAYS have on?

I am not a big fashion person. I like to be comfortable. So if anything it would be a comfortable pair of jeans. But more importantly... I always have my cell phone on me.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog life.

My blog life is steady. I start a new challenge in Sunday that last 14wks. I am hoping to design the look of my blog... so hopefully that will come 2 fruition soon. Work has been quiet but I try to stay busy & earn my keep. Plus it makes the time go by faster.

Detox in 3...2....1

Well .... i hate weekend that feel like I did not get any rest like I should have. My sleep was average at best. I did exercise for 40 mins. I realize I really do not like the Golds Gym DAnce Workout. I will be mailing it back tomorrow or Tuesday. I want to give my daughter to give it a try and see what she thinks. I am sure part of it that I am used to the pace of the Exerbeat.

14 day detox... I will share more later this week. Bottom line.. No sugar. NO white stuff. No red meat. 1300-15o0 calories. 5-6 small meals a day. 128oz of water. 500 cal burn daily. Must journal food and exercise on MFP. This is part of the mother/daughter BL challenge. I like it because it reduces my eating to necessity and not from boredom or taste. I will eat to live versus live to eat.



Grade my day - D
