BLOG: Guerra regains her motivation

Annette Guerra
Nov 10, 2010

Since my blog last week, I feel like I have a new wind. I've started to feel like this is January again when I was so determined to do this. I feel really unstoppable. I want to finish this competition strong.

I had my first workout with a new trainer, Ken Cutcher of Anytime Fitness. I acquired him due to my other trainer, Kevin Gallagher of Anytime Fitness, going to Japan for a while.

I have to say, both of them are really great trainers. Their workouts are totally different but in the same really effective.

I think the stress level part of me has come down a lot, which is really helping with me keeping my head on straight.

As those of you who have been following me know, my husband and I have been trying to purchase a home these past few months. Well, we finally found a house, were approved and will close on it Nov. 12.

We will be moving to Bellevue in mid-December. The house we got actually has some great things to add to my weight loss.

It's right across the street from one of the reservoirs, which will come in handy for the spring/summer for walking and running. I'm also right down the street from the Bellevue Recreation Center, another plus for working out.

And we also have a pool at our house. What's better than a water workout? So I think all these things will help me keep my journey going after this is all said and done.

One of the perks of being an Anytime Fitness member is you have access to the Anytime Health website. I think this website will be the key for keeping me on my diet and helping to achieve my goal of 120 pounds lost.

It has everything right at my finger tips. From exercise videos, to a diet tracker (which I am using daily), to a daily exercise tracker and much more. It tells me how many calories to eat for the day and how many calories I need to burn. The whole key to weight loss, I believe is calories in - calories out.

I'm really excited about the next few months and seeing how the holidays play into my weight loss. I think with me being in the right mindset now, I won't have any problem.

Ragtop66,

I never did say that we were having "financial difficulties". What I DID say was that my husband works 6 days a week 12 hour days.  And that I only work 2 days a week because it's not beneficial to pay for daycare for 3 kids and also my husband and i would both be working in the evening and someone needs to be here for the kids after school.

And so what if we bought a house with a pool.  Are you the one making the payment?  Definitly didn't sound like a "congratulations" to me.

ok first of all that letter was from how long ago and everybody has there struggles. that was like 11 months ago, people can grow finacially in 11 months! and second how r  gonna call someone nasty when u dont even know them and no one in my family is nasty so i suggest if u dont have anything positive to say then stay off the page bc obviously there is some void or jealousy in ur life if u try to bring someone down that is succedding in there life.

Re: femall.....this is a public forum, I have the RIGHT to voice my opinion, so get off my back and take your suggestion with you.

femall22

lets see u post stuff about ur life for a year straight and then take criticism from people that dont even know you or think they know u just bc u try and share your experiences with u, if u dont like it dont read it. nobody lied about anything, things change/

No  one was forced to put  that much personal information in a public newspaper.  The fit bloggers should just stick with the  issues of weight and stop trying to write a  diary about their entire life ( like the other girl from before) .   Any and all  personal  info made public is subject to scrutiny, regardless of what "u" think.

Do the rest of us  really need to  know about someone's   weight fluctuation during their period.  I mean  that's just common sense.

Re: femall.....There is no way, under any circumstances, would I post anything about my life in or for a newspaper. Anybody with enough "gray matter" knows that's just asking for what you get, good, bad, or indifferent.

Why all the personal attacks on this young lady? I have followed her blog. She has had more than her share of problems in her life that she had to overcome. Why all the personal attacks? Why all of the nit picking about this young lady? Why are you people so self rightous and critical of this young lady? Because she bought a house?

starryeyes83

The were  no attacks Sal,  ragtop congratulated her on it, and was deleted for it. Go figure.  And all I did was tell the other poster to learn how to spell,  and  hey,  got deleted for  " personal attack ".  Well, when you can't read what they post because they're using textspeak it's hard to understand.  Not  everyone texts  and this isn't the proper forum for it, anyway.   These  people must not be very thick skinned.   Oh well.    I don't see the other contestants putting that much personal info out there,  This is suppose to be about weight loss.
