2/1/2015 (32 Days into 90 day Challenge)

Sunday, February 01, 2015

Here it is February already. I am part of Pixie's 90 Day Challenge. Part of that challenge is to take pictures or measurements of yourself every 30 days. I did take my measurements but decided to bite the bullet and do pictures also. In all honesty I was embarrassed by doing so because I've gained weight in the past year and a half instead of losing. Once I saw the pictures I started to delete them but decided it was the wake up call I needed. The motivation.

January, went well. I've upped my step per day by 2000 since the beginning of January. I have a long way to go before I get to 10,000 steps per day but I'm adding 500 steps every 3 days that I hit my goal. So, I will get there, little by little. I'm also doing wall push ups, step ups, ab work out and WATP.
I went the Dr. last week and all my labs came back great. A1C dropped from 7.1 to 6.5.. I also lost 10 pounds since November when I last saw her. She was thrilled with my results and so was I.

Now it is February and we are doing the 28 day bootcamp. I hope I'm able to do this but will modify when I must. It is also time to post pics again. I personally couldn't tell any difference but it just makes me more determined to make the most out of this short month. My hubby came in while I was taking the pics and asked what I was doing. I told him and he said he's proud of me and to keep up the good work. Maybe next month I'll let him take the pics. We'll see.

The last pic is blurry but took 3 times and it'll just have to work.

I love Pixie and I love this team. I have definitely found the determination and the belief in myself to get this done. I'm still working on my eating but have gotten so much better with the healthier choices. One choice, One step, one day at a time.

    Way to go, Lisa! Two steps forward, one step back - this path is not a straight one, but if you stay on it, you'll get where you want to be:)
    Hang in there! And keep walking:)

    Oh yeah, I can see a difference too. I've thought about your challenge. I'll have Erik take pictures of me tomorrow then figure out how to get them off my new camera. I'm trying to up the ante in February too. I hope I'll be able to walk a little more outside, I got winded this morning on a slight incline and I've been zipping around the house like a bird after its prey. Keep it up Lisa. LOVE your NSVs emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon The Non Scale Victories -- Lab Work, etc -- may not show up in Pictures or on the Stupid Scale, but they are even More Important than the Three Numbers on the Scale. Making Good, Healthy Choices with your Exercise and in the Kitchen will show up on the Scale eventually. But a Lowered A1c and the Higher Step Count are FABULOUS! !

    Good luck with your challenge. I agree that being honest with yourself is a very good way to start. I saw myself in a video that was taken this summer and I was surprised at how I looked, and not in a good way. It did get me going though and I have posted some pics of me at the start of this effort.

    Hi Sweetie, and I can feel your determination and that's what will get you to where you want to be. I've gained almost half back of what I lost a couple of years ago, so we're in the same boat. I'm trying to figure out what I did in the beginning that made me such a success and I know that I ate alot more veggies and got on my recumbent bike just about every day. If I can get there again, I can be successful, and I'm trying to do that, with being after my knee surgery. I don't care for the pain but I'll keep pushing to get there and you will too, with the special things that you know work for you! Keep pushing and I will too. Hugs to you, Karen emoticon emoticon
