How time flies! I want it to slow down! August 6th 2017 Great day! 765 calories before supper. I don't want a growling stomach all night. No idea what I'm making tonight! I did an hour cleaning at church. Actually it's set up tables, make coffee, prepare trays with panera bagels, muffins, bread, etc and clean up. I was on my feey the whole time. So I'm recording it as cleaning in my exercise tracker and I'm going to record it before I forget! 10 people signed up for the church sponsored golf tournament being held August 20th, organizer told me if more people don't sign up, it'll be canceled and participants reimbursed. June 12, 2017 today I'm trying to catch up on rest, after all the activitiesfrom volleyball tournament all weekend and 2 hours dance Saturday night, so I spent 20 minutes on Aerobic rider exercise bike, which I don't see listed in Sparkpeople exercise tracker, and took a nap. I'm in the Raiders jersey woth silver medal and Coach Leslie is with me. I've been laid off from work a month now and as a result, I'm a month behind on my personal trainer certification courses, which doesn't make me happy. I intended to take personal fitness trainer exam this month and be finished with certification before I start internship with trainer development course. After the inspector, exterminator came and found spiders, bedbugs, mold and ants in my apartment StanleySteemer came to shampoo my carpet, thankfully my father came up woth the idea and arranged for it, I got to move in with a new bed, dresser, nightstand, shower mat and shower curtain, placemats, teapot, rocking chair... so it's starting to feel new. Thank you dad, you're amazing! May 27th, 2017 today is dad's birthday, I got to talk to him three times today. Tomorrow is his 53rd anniversary. A mice anniversary gift they'd like is to have someone buy their house. This picture is of grandma, mom behind us, I'm in blue and sis other side of grandma. I miss her. Well, after extermination from landlord's pest control and extermination from employer's pest control, both found bedbugs. My roommate took her first day off work yesterday and I've been forced not to work all week . hopefully she'll be told to stay home until all is done. Inspector came yesterday and if employer allows the exterminator will be here Thursday. I even offered employer if he or she wanted number, I'll gladly consent to them gett5 call logs from the phone company and I'd identify number i received call from for pest control exterminator. No response yet. I guess they're too chicken (figure of speech )! Amidst all that chaos, my parents are picking me up Tuesday (I'd like them to come Monday ), deep clean laundry (deep meaning more than just washing and drying ). When i return it'll be time for special Olympics volleyball tournament in Terre Haute Indiana June 8th -11th. It's 2 1/2 weeks away and nobody knows when the bus leaves that Thursday. June 8th. Ugh! November 6,2016 Mom called telling me grandma is not feeling well. November 7 my grandma passed away and went to heaven. Tuesday November 8 was election day. On Veterans day I took the day off work and dad picked me up from my apartment to take me to the farm she and Grandpa built. He passed away and went to heaven in Mother's day 1990, it was the week of my college spring semester exams. He had rumatoid arthritis. Mom's siblings, my cousins scattered across the nation and I gathered together for her visitation November 13 and her funeral November 14. Youth and music ministers from my father's church came for support, my former youth minister came, and my dad's college roommate and his wife came. November 13th my cousin Brandon surprised his wife Rachel with a cousin reunion at their house for her birthday (it was her birthday!) We stayed up ALL night long. when I lost my balance and accidentally tripped on Brandon, his sister and her husband took me back to the farm. This Thanksgiving the entire family is having Thanksgiving at the farm to celebrate Thanksgiving on a positive note, MORE outings. I'm changing my picture to the cousins party. I'm behind lady in sweater on the right. Brandon is on my right with arms crossed. I have my Grandpa playing guitar on the front steps with me and my sister on my background picture on my Facebook page. I'm changing my Facebook profile picture to one with Grandma, I have more pictures of her on my Facebook page, I get limited data on my cellphone. If I knew how to change my cellphone background picture to Grandma and Grandpa, I'd do it faster than a heartbeat! November 18 after work my vacation began. Monday or Tuesday my dad picks me up for Thanksgiving and we return Tuesday after Thanksgiving. To be honest, I won't and don't want to leave, I want to be closer to my family and spend more time with them. I hate being left alone in my apartment on weekends. I go out for walks, sure, but I return to the apartment. I'm a social butterfly, NOT a loner. Only place I like to be alone is in the shower! September 24: this picture is at my cousin's birthday party at my grandma's farm. I'm standing behind my cousin. WE were ready to party and for it to NEVER end! My aunt doesn't seem to be impressed being in the picture in the corner, she made the scarf necklace (it has a latch like a necklace, but a necklace is longer!) I think that's part of my aunt's surprise ! August 27, 2016: This upcoming Friday 3 pm when my bus picks me up from work my vacation begins! I can hardly wait! I start packing for the farm tomorrow. Sunday before Labor day my parents arrive around dinner time, spend night at my apartment, and ALL three of us leave for farm labor day morning. Grandma, a sharp 99 on January 19th, full of spunk, I get to see for a full week! Week after labor day I return, so I pray time at the farm goes very slowly, I'm in NO hurry to return. There's no work at work. If I got my way, I'd get a job closer to my relatives and move in with Grandma. I haven't asked Grandma about living with her yet, I'd get a job closer to her and more family members with a stronger support system than I currently get from work. This past Wednesday I got to follow-up on current job applications and went well. I consider looking for a job as a job, I feel great about it and very thankful for a productive day. Thursday and Friday I went to work, regretfully, no work as always, only went in because I want a positive reference. July 19 2016: I gained one pound WATER weight, so doc and I aren't worried about it. Picture here is my morning Leslie circuit training workout! Name it and the DVD, then get off your behind and get moving! Your body will thank you for it and you'll be glad you did! I'm looking forward going to the farm Sunday before Labor day or morning , I get to help be a caregiver for my sharp 98 1/2 year young grandma (she'll be 99 on January 19!) AND stay for a week! With slow down work coming in at work I hope the upcoming weeks go fast go slowly at the because I don't get to see her much. I take Leslie DVDs with me and I feel refreshed! June 2016: Ever since I started using my Sparkpeople trackers, I've lost 25 pounds since November and have maintained the loss since. Using the Sparkpeople trackers has made me aware of what and how much I eat, it literally scared the bejeepers out of me. I'm thankful for each plateau I have because that's how I learn to maintain the lost weight. I've gown down 8 pant sizes, 3 shirt sizes, a bra size, my next rewards will be a new bathing suit and trip to state volleyball tournament for Special Olympics in June! I'm on the left, enjoying dinner with my second cousins. My parents took the picture 😃 2013: I was at 115-130 lbs from puberty thru college. In college freshman, I'd yo yo, I'd lose 15 lbs and gain 30. It was a vicious cycle throughout college. In college I was called the slowest eater, little did I know that's how I was able to keep in shape and still eat regular foods. In 1993-96 I joined weight watchers, got in maintenance and reached goals, but never kept it off. Weight came back eventually.. I was always taught it's a diet. Well, now with some encouragement from friends, strangers, neighbors, coworkers, etc. I'm learning it's a LIFESTYLE, NOT DIET. See, diet was a letter -i - in it, meaning doing it alone, and only 3 letters are in it, d, e,t with I in between. In LIFESTYLE, it's the second letter, but more letters -- meaning theres more support and theres nothing wrong seeking it; so I feel embarrassed when I ask for it.

    You asked about how many pounds in kg - 1 pound is 0.5kg. 5:2 is basically a style of intermittent fasting where you eat 500 calories for 2 days a week and eat normally (1500-1800) the rest of the 5 days. I measure progress by inches lost first and then the scale. I'd rather the inches be more noticeable than the weight on the scale :)

    Earlier you asked what TRX stands for ... TRX stands for Total-body Resistance Exercise and is a suspension training system, which utilizes a mix of support and mobility training in strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, coordination, power, and core all at once. TRX uses gravity and movement to generate the engagement of your entire body.

    TRX hamstring curls are an exercise that works your hamstrings (the muscles on the back of our thighs).

    Hope you are having a good Saturday!

    Thank you for your kindness and caring. I'm beginning to feel better already with one day of protein & raw greens. It's amazing to me how effective they are in reducing inflammation.
