Motivational Thread - Januray 27- February 2
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” ― John Wooden

It seems to me that many of us had a rough week last week. This is a new week with new opportunities! I hope today's motivational quote resonates with each of you. It can be difficult when we first start on a weight loss journey (or have been on that journey for some time). We plan our diet and our exercise with determination. The first few weeks, we're focused and ready to take on the world! Then life happens. We didn't have a chance to plan our meals or something in our day caused us to miss our workout. These things sometimes lead us to giving up completely or make us feel like we're failing. This is why I chose the quote today. Even if we miss a workout or we've eaten something that's not conducive to our goal, that's no reason to ditch our plan for the rest of the day. We just pick up where we left off and keep forging forward. Focus on what we can do....what we can do to turn things around and continue on our path.

Wishing us all a great week filled with determination and personal successes!Here's to a great week ahead!

2) stick as close to plan as possible
3) stretch daily
4) gym 2x this week (start small)
5) 6 glasses water

Hi all :) Checking back in with day 1 of my new 52 day rotation I'm calling "Chasing the Sun" . It's 52 days will take me all the way until the first day of Spring! Yes, I'm seriously counting down! :p Today's Chasing the Sun workout was Cardio Abs and I followed that up with BodyRock day 12 workout. I'm just about to hop on the elliptical and do some extra cardio...I'm aiming for 60 minutes.

So glad this is the last week of January! I'm so over this Winter weather! :cool:

Nyda - Good job ditching the excuses! I'm glad the quote I chose hit home for you. It hit home for me too which was why I posted it.

Hope - Your menu looks yummy!!

Mary - I'm with you on seeing January out on a positive note!

Hope everyone has had an awesome Monday!

I'm in (again).

Goals for the week

2-plan plan plan
3-post daily
4-do not lose focus

For those that don't know me, and for those that do and think I dropped off the face of the earth...I started here in November of 2011, had great success. From November '11 till October 2012 I lost roughly 75 lbs. Then all hell broke loose. BF came home from the army (he was stationed in Germany) that October and being the wonderful GF that I am, I indulged his every culinary wish. If he wanted a cake, I baked him a cake. I baked a LOT of cakes. Everything was awesome. I lost focus on my health because I was focused on making him happy. I gained a little weight. No biggie right? Life was thrown upside down last summer. A lot of stress, a lot of fighting (BF's sister stirred up a lot of stuff) and then I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I could barely move, and I was CONSTANTLY tired. Like, unable to get through the day tired. And I gained even more weight. I'm 6 months post diagnosis and am just now starting to feel like I can get back in control of my life. I'm 40 pounds heavier than I was when BF came home...and I'm miserable with it.

So...that's what's up with me. Looking forward to getting back in touch with old friends and making new ones.
