Tuesday, December 28, 2010

emoticon2011 is just about here!!
I recently wrote a blog about how I pretty much WASTED 2010.
In "09" I lost 94 lbs!! This year I gained 20 lbs.. emoticon

So I have a plan!! I have GOALS!! I have written out everything..I have a few pics to share as well.
My plan is for 2 months..Hint..The 8 Week Battle emoticon

Goals are:

Of course stay in calorie range..TRACK EVERYTHING!!

emoticon emoticonCardio 4x's a week- kick boxing,jump rope,step aerobics..Just MOVE!! Each day my cardio minutes are "minimum 12 minutes"..Its EASY to get up,and move..Of course I do more.

emoticon emoticon emoticonAnd plenty of it!! Without it I GAIN like crazy.

emoticon emoticonStrength train 2x's a week..For now.

emoticon emoticonYoga or Pilate's 2x's a week.I REALLY need to strengthen my body..And I know I can benefit from this!!

My measurements are emoticon
Waist: 52.5 Hips: 55.5 emoticonI hate these numbers..BUT there they are.

My Goal is to lose 7 lbs is January..Here is my Calendar.I have NOT done one for February yet..At the end of January I will know if something needs to be tweaked.This stays on my fridge.

This is a pic of me when I first started Spark @ 314 lbs.I HATED this pic..BUT now I'm so HAPPY I took it..If YOU haven't PLEASE do so..You will be glad you did!! Also a pic of me NOW.
At the end of these 2 months I will post NEW "face pics".

And..This is ME @ 314 lbs..And NOW 238 lbs.

emoticonI can see by these pictures I have MADE BIG PROGRESS!! However I'm upset that I wasted 2010..With JESUS helping me along the way..I WILL REACH my GOAL in 2011!!

At the end of February I will retake pictures..measurements,and post my stats.
Just doing 2 months at a time..Having a plan written out..Is REALLY motivating me.
I STILL have 88 lbs to lose..I CAN DO IT!! emoticon

emoticonFor those of you joining My 8 Week Battle #11..There will be a Challenge on what YOUR GOALS are..And how you plan to reach them..So be thinking..The Battle is getting close!!
With a NEW YEAR We ALL have a NEW START!! emoticonDon't allow another year to pass you by like I did. Know YOU are worth ALL the hard work this journey takes.
Besides are you happy where you are right now at this moment?? If not what are YOU gonna do about it??

God Bless ~~Christina emoticon

    What an amazing transformation you've already made! 74 lbs off is no small feat. You're going to be amazing in 2011! I know it! Good luck.

    PS - Can't wait for #11

    One's time is never wasted. You learned from your experiences in 2010 and perhaps more importantly you helped a lot of us to move forward. Personally for me, joining your battle is exactly what I needed and I lost 12 lbs. Thank you for that and thank you for being the caring, kind, and sharing person you are! emoticon

    What a great blog!!! I can see that you are going to take 2011 by the horns and leave no mess behind.

    I like this plan. I have been mulling mine over in my head and I will post it in the next day or two. I have been busy with people who want to see me before I go back to work. One more tomorrow and then I get three days to myself to do what I want to do, and I am not sure what that is yet. I do hope it is sunny.

    As for the pictures, YOU HAVE DONE AN AMAZING JOB. I too did not so good for 2010.

    But now we go on to 2011 and we show it who's boss!!!!

    Hey Chica,

    2010 was not wasted if you can take the knowledge from it and move forward without repeating the missteps. I read somewhere that if we do not learn from the lesson then we will repeat those mistakes over and over until they are learned. My guess you took a lot from 2009 or you would have gained back all 94+ in 2010 and you did not do that. I wish you a prosperous 2011 may you master the lessons and...

    Keep It Movin'

    You are such an inspiration and a motivator - you encourage each of us along the journey to our goals! I love the pictures, the goals and the determination! I see success in your future not motion is no wasted effort! Not gaining back all that you have lost is truly a win! Believe in yourself - I believe in you! 2011 is going to be a stellar year for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You didn't waste 2010 - you managed to keep 74 lbs of your weight loss off - for good, for a whole year. That's an amazing achievement and you should be really proud.

    Good for you for going full out again in 2011. I've signed up for the BLC 15, which is a 12 week new year kickstart.

    I know we'll both meet our goals, because a positive attitude is everything, and I can see you've got that in bucketloads.

    I don't think you wasted 2010. It was a very tough year for you. You went through a lot! And, along the way, you learned a lot. You and your body are getting used to being lighter and fitter. So, even though you gained a few lbs, you are still MUCH fitter than you were...and it takes time for a body and mind to adjust to that. I say - don't look back. Just look to the future. These are great goals and you know exactly what you have to do to achieve them. Stick with it and be sure to continue to enjoy the journey!

    You are singing my song sistah! 2010 was a bust for me too. I am EXACTLY the same weight I was at this time last year. I have gone down and up 15 lbs twice this year. CRAZY!

    I am, like you, trying to focus on how far we've come and now (well, in January) going to hit that goal!!!

    I will work along side you my darling!! we can DO THIS!!!!

    Hugs and blessings!!!!

    GOALS REALLY do make all the difference... SPECIFIC goals are what I will start thinking on and I will blog soon about those!

    YOU have done great! JUST move forward... and do your best TODAY!

    This is awesome!

    The good thing about your little blip in 2010 is that they say that the longer it takes for you to lose, the longer you're apt to keep it off (or something like that). It looks like the spark is lit for you for 2011! No matter what, we're all learning from our journeys...

    I'm getting pumped for the next battle!
