My determination faceHey there, Sparkers! I just wanted to drop a quick note and share my 3 favorite workout books.
It's amazing how many different kinds of exercise exist!
I hope everyone is doing great and living well, you are amazing! 🏋💪You don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great.
Zig ZiglerPass on the flame:
You can do this. You are strong, you have the willpower and self respect to succeed. You are unbreakable, even when you fall you get back up again ready to take on the next challenge. You can do this. You don't give up, you don't surrender. You take it minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month until you climb your mountain. You can do it. That's a fact.#sweatyselfie
My legs are going to be sore tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it!🏋👍Starting day 2 of the 30 day fitness challenge, can't wait to see the results at the end.
Day 2: 276 lbs
(Sidenote: I will have to remember to clean up my room! Lol! 😉)Happy weekend, Sparkers! I hope yours is filled with success and happiness!👏🤘Posted a photoI am getting frustrated, irritated with this plateau. Since June it's been budging by ounces and going up by ounces. I'm making a call to my nutritionist today to discuss the game plan and figure out what to do.
Hope everyone has an easy, smooth Monday! Stay strong, stay focused! Here's a picture of Hank Hill doing yoga for you 😀So, I'm upping my caloric intake from 1200 to 1700 per doctors instructions. The additional 500 calories are to be proteins and vegetables, so, that should be easy enough. This is a typical lunch for me and it is delicious. Wanted something sweet and chocolatey so I had some vanilla yogurt and added some unsweetened cocoa powder. It was yummy!
I hope everyone is doing well and I hope you have a great rest of your day! Get your goals, Sparkers!!Posted a photoYesterday I sprained my ankle so, I'm having some difficulty with cardio. However, I'm still doing my 30 day challenge and strength so, it's not really a huge loss. I am still exercising.
Have a great Wednesday everyone! Stay hydrated, stay focused, stay positive!Had to wrap my ankle, it was feeling pretty sore but, it's starting to feel a smidge better. Progress 👍
Does anyone know any good shoulder stretches? I know one where you reach across the opposite side of your chest and it's not cutting it. I'd appreciate any suggestions!
I hope everyone is doing well today!Don't give up, this week is almost done and over with. Stay focused, hydrated, and positive. It's not easy but it's so very worth it.
This is your life, Sparkers! Make it the best life you can live.Yesterday was a rest day, it felt good but I had to remind myself multiple times that it's important to rest. I'm just so tired of being overweight that I want to keep hitting it hard and get this over with. However, rest day was good.
But I'm ready to get back to it.
Happy Friday, Sparkers! Seize the opportunities to improve life!Is it the weekend already? This week flew by here.
I hope everyone is doing well and I hope you have a great day! The absolute best!My scale is on the fritz. I have to weigh myself twice, getting the same number both times, before I can write it down in my food journal. I got 6 different numbers:
Report Inappropriate Page
Well, time for a new scale I suppose. #NSV I'm officially down 2 pants sizes since February 26 to 22. Feeling great!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day, I wish you nothing but the best and I'm rooting for you! Stay hydrated, focused, and positive!Today we went to Golden Corral for lunch, I ate steamed broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, salad, and grilled chicken. Drank water, no dessert.This is the picture I wanted to post! Lol!
"They say you are what you eat. That's funny, I don't remember eating a sexy beast this morning."My lunch, 5 ounces of cod, 1 1/2 cups of broccoli, and about 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato (not pictured). All for under 300 calories! Huzzah!Cod, Northwest veggies, and mashed sweet potato followed with 20 oz of water. Under 300 calories, yay!The week is over halfway through, you did it! And you can keep going, don't give up! Stay focused, stay positive, and stay hydrated! You're amazing, you're strong, you will be successful! 💪🏋⭐🤘🌠Had a good day at the zoo today, lots of walking, still ate right and stayed hydrated.Happy Weekend, Sparkers! Own your day! Make it successful!Went for a walk this morning even though it is technically a rest day. I just had some things I needed to work out in my head and I figured some quiet time with nature would help. It did and I am back to enjoying my day fully.
It is surprising what some quiet and mindless exercise can do, I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday in every aspect.It's Monday! Let's get motivated! You can do it, you're doing it right now! Keep on keeping on, you're another day closer to a healthier, happier life! Stay focused, stay positive, stay hydrated!I have met and exceeded my goal for September already as of this morning. So, I'm changing my goal to 264 by September, roughly 2 weeks away. I didn't do my 30 Day Fit workout yesterday, decided to start my pre-winter cleaning and deep cleaned my kitchen and bathroom. Still a workout but, today I'm doing both.
You made it through Monday, you got Tuesday! Own the day, achieve what you set out to accomplish, You Can Do It! 💪🏋🤘⭐Yesterday I ran wind sprints, a total of .41 mile. Combined with my 4.3 mile walk and another 1.4 mile walk, I burned some serious calories yesterday. I know because I stepped on the scale today and weighed in at 261.4! Woohoo!
Happy Thursday! Over halfway through the week! You've got this, you're unstoppable! Have a wonderful day, Sparkers! 🏋💪🤘One of the most difficult things for me to give up is BBQ. I make the best burgers but, they're not very healthy. Today my neighbor fired up his smoker and I wanted to get mine going too. But, I told myself to wait. 3 days until my cheat meal and I will BBQ then, I'm thinking hickory smoked pork chops. Until then I will earn that cheat meal and it will taste even better.
Getting my daily dose of motivation! 😉Tomorrow I have to attend a baby shower and I really don't want to. I'm going of course, I'll be pleasantly friendly and warm. My reason for not wanting to go is 1) I barely know the Mom and 2) I have difficulty watching myself around party foods, I think of small foods as almost being calorie-less. Anyway, I'm mentally prepping myself now for tomorrow.
Have a great night, everyone!!Something I would like to do is post before photos but, due to some offensive tattoos I will spare you all! Hahaha! Anyhoo, my scale today says I'm 267.0. The reason it says that is because yesterday I got sunburned and barely drank the minimum water requirements. However, I took my measurements and since August 2nd I've lost 3/4 of an inch off my tummy! Stoked!
It's Saturday, woohoo! I wish everyone a beautiful day and the strength to keep going! Keep it up, y'all!! You're unstoppable! 🤘🏋🏆Always search for the silver lining! And have a blessed, beautiful, and radical day!Off to the DMV this morning to replace my stolen wallet! 🎼Monday, Monday...Soo Good to me!🎶 Anyway, big plans for today, a nice walk, back in calisthenics, yoga, and maybe a jog should the weather hold out.
It's Monday! A fresh week, a chance to push harder than last week, a new day to love and respect yourself. You are worth the work, the effort, and the results. Have a gorgeous day, Sparkers! You're amazing! 🏆🤘🏋💪For some reason the SparkPeople app won't let me log my exercise, but anyway, it still registers with me! Hahaha!
I hope your day is going spectacular, sending you all a smile! You can do it! You're stronger than yesterday and you'll be stronger tomorrow! 💪🏋It's Tuesday! We survived Monday, time to own Tuesday, we can do it!
I'm going to own today, I'm going to break my unwilling spirit and replace it with a willing one. Time to take care of me!
Take care of yourself, you are worth the effort, love, and self respect. Take it minute by minute, you'll get it done. Stay positive, focused, and hydrated!Mmm! Lunch for just 159 calories! And delicious! Win/Win!
Lemon herb 4 oz. tilapia and dill roasted veggiesHere's a #NSV I noticed today:
At the beginning of this month I couldn't do more than 2 sit ups before needing to stop. Now, I can bust out 9 before I'm even feeling the burn.
I'm pretty sure it's working! Hallelujah!It's Thursday! - or Thor's Day, for you Viking historians - this week is over halfway through! We made it!
I hope everyone is doing well, if it's your workout or rest day I wish you a successful day nonetheless! And remember, the success isn't just on the scale so pay attention to the other victories, they're just as important!
(Here's a laugh to start the day!)Today marks the end of the 30 Day Fit easy plan. Started August 1st, finished September 1st, took 'after' photo this morning.
Lost 13 lbs while on the program and 3/4 of an inch in my tummy. Here are my 'before' and 'after' photos for comparison.
I admittedly do not see a difference however, I can feel it.
Have a wonderful, beautiful day! Be productive, be positive, stay hydrated! Don't give up, take a rest, but don't give up. You're strong and you're worth it!Sunday and Monday were rough. Rough, rough, rough. However, it's back on the program, and it's time to kick it up a notch.
Noticed something though, last time I was in the 260's was in 2013. It's good to be back!
I hope everyone is doing well, having a great morning, and onto a wonderful day! You got it! Own your success!Post workout cuddle with my Lil' Bugaboo! She's so sweet 😊So, so close! Usually I'm 40% + in protein.
Have a great night everyone!The epitome of weight loss torture: my 2 year old throwing M&Ms at me while I do sit ups. 😑I need to get my yoga and Nike training in, did a mini 1.3 mile walk today. I plan on doing more but, my steam is starting to waiver. I need to get motivated, motivated, motivated! Throw some gas on my fire!
I hope everyone is doing fabulous, living well, and meeting their goals!!I think something is wrong. I have been adhering to my diet, exercising properly even upping my workouts, and I've gained 2 lbs that seem to be sticking with me. I think I will have to continue troubleshooting and investigating this phenomenon today!!
Last night, a bicyclist in my neighborhood got hit by a car. He was miraculously uninjured. Please be careful out there today, Sparkers!
I wish you a happy, positive day! Stay on track, you're unstoppable!!Thank you for all the positive words yesterday, it was nice to see this morning!
Here's a laugh for Monday!
And I'm off to slay the day!I'm not going to meet my 260 goal tomorrow. Certain anatomical functions have begun and so has my inevitable water retention. According to the scale, I gained 3 pounds overnight. Thanks reproductive organs! You're the best! 👍
I digress, the plan stays the same. I will feel better knowing I stuck with it than scrap it for the next few days.
Slay the day!! Own your success!! Take charge of your life!!I live between 2 grocery stores. One is exactly .5 miles away and the other is .7 miles away. Today my hubby and doll bug wanted donuts for breakfast. I got them to compromise at 1 each and walked to the .7 store.
It only took me 35 minutes to walk up there, grab the donuts and a few other bits and bobs, and walk back. That's amazing to me!!
Happy Saturday to you!! Wishing you the best day, easy success, and productivity!!A quick question:
I see articles on here about most everything but, I haven't seen one about dealing with spousal jealousy during weight loss. I'd love to get some tips on how to handle this situation as it does contribute to my stress.
Any guidance or advice is welcome! Thank you in advance!After an extremely turbulent night, I am hesitant to weigh myself. Working with 47 minutes of sleep today until my crazy night owl child goes down for a nap. T minus 3 hours.
Just another manic Monday! Hahaha!
Have an exceedingly wonderful day, you can do this!!Breakfast: 233 calories @ 10 am
So, I am ditching the daily weigh. Why? Because I am not showing any weight loss but I am losing inches. I'm at a plateau and every time I get on the scale and see the same number or 2 oz down or 2 oz up, etc. I end up fretting and worrying about the number.
So, I will weigh in once a week. But, mostly focus on measurements.
I hope everyone is having a great day, enjoy the weekend!Lunch: 245 calories
