Hi Journal & Friends!
Time once again for my Hot 100 Update!
My goals for the Hot 100:
1. Stay within my Calorie Budget.
I did fair this week, even though I allowed myself to use the "busy" excuse to not track calories several days. I peeked at the scale Monday, and I was okay, down another 2 lbs, so whew! But I feel it's too soon for me to be winging it, and I want to continue tracking calories until... well, hopefully it won't be forever!
2. Exercise 6 days/week.
Still doing my Rabata. Ha ha ha... that's the nickname I gave to my invention of using Tabata-type timing with my rebounder. I am still loving it! Going to write about it soon. :-)
3. Take my Vitamins EVERY day.
Need to do better. Regularly taking my pills... been missing the liquid vitamins most days... okay, all week!
And I am UNofficially shooting to be out of the 300's and into the Two-sies by the end of the year. I am still on schedule, numbers-wise. :-D
All in all, I feel it's only been a "fair" week as far as my goals went.
I've been lazy. I am determined to do better!
Action, not just intention.
Okay, wanna meet someone who IS taking ACTION??
Her name is Stephanie, and she is doing some major action in the exercise department!
She has only been blogging since October 1st, but I've known her online for several years. She is one determined lady!!
If you have time, would you stop by and encourage her?? You can find Stef here, at My Journey To Lose 200 Pounds. Thanks bunches!
Today's Peek at the Past (Hey, whoever wrote this knows exactly what I needed to read!)
From Day 66, October 14, 2009:
I now know that ultimately, if it is to be, it is up to me. I, and I alone, am responsible for the state of my being, and that includes the weight on this body.
Back a few years... I was desperate... for someone, anyone, who understood what it felt like to be 460 pounds... To belong to a group who was DOING it, not just talking about it.
Not that *I* was necessarily doing it yet...I was "trying"... There is trying...and there is doing. BIG DIFFERENCE.
I hooked up with a group of others with like mind. It wittled down over time to a handful of women who I now count as my real friends.
Today I know something that I didn't know back then...
...at the end of the day, when everyone else is offline and asleep, it is me and my choices that will prevail. No one is here to hold my hand and cajole me into making the healthy choices except ME. Personally, I believe that God is walking this journey with me, and that is enough.
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE...
ONE GOOD CHOICE AT A TIME.

From Dr Phil's book: "For you to succeed, you have to translate this knowledge, awareness, and insight into action."
My verse for today: "A sluggard does not plow in season; so at harvest time he looks but finds nothing."
My quote for today: "You must do what others won't to achieve what others don't."
Enjoy the Journey,
