Happy Thanksgiving

Its been one busy and crazy week so far, but I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all and I hope you enjoy spending time with family and friends.  I know I am especially thankful for all of my family and friends and I look forward to making many more friends through this great healthy living community.  I know I am going to enjoy my dinner and if I go over my points, I am not going to beat myself up for it.  I will just make sure to work extra hard in my upcoming SPIN classes this week and next.
Be safe and until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

Slow and Steady?

Frustration!  Ugh!!!  Why is it that I only lost 1lb last week????  I know I should be happy with that, but this is really beginning to frustrate me.  I worked hard, tracked my food, and even drank my water.  Something is not registering correctly here.  Its really beginning to stress me out.  I have to rethink this because obviously I am doing something that is not in line with what my goal is.  The goal is to lose the weight.  I want to lose at least 2lbs a week.  Is that so hard?  Obviously it is. I guess my motto thus far is "slow and steady".  Somehow I don't like the way that sounds.
Ok, I am done venting.  Sorry for the rant.  Until next time, be strong and eat healthy.

Happy Friday!!!

This week has been so-so.  I was only down 1lb.  I guess I should be happy because it was down and not up, but sometimes I just expect more.  I think that I need to drink some more water to kick it up a notch.  I am about to go to my 630am SPIN class so hopefully that will get me started on the right track this morning.  Lots of things going on this weekend.  Parades, dance classes, family stuff.  All fun so I know I will be moving and active.  Well, I must go for now.  Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

My Motivation Is Back Up

So while I was working out at the gym yesterday morning, I was thinking to myself...you can do this, you can become a fit and healthy person, it may take you awhile but don't give up because you can do it!!!
I was so pumped up with my thoughts and the effort that I was giving to my workout that I ate healthy the WHOLE day AND I stayed within my WW points....yeah for me!!!!  :-)

I just got finished reading a post by Swim Bike Mom and she got me so pumped this morning.  Off to another great start.  This means that I will eat healthy all day today too!  Thanks Swim Bike Mom for the motivation that I needed.  I will forever be greatful.

To everyone out there, take it one day at a time and hang in there. We can do this!  Until next time stay strong and eat healthy.
