HAPPY SPRING!

I LOVE this time of year! The rebirth and renewal that happen always motivates and inspires me. I need it right now. I've been in a funk for a very long time. I want to live my life not sleepwalk through it. So it is time to put the wonderful longer days and warmer weather to use. I WILL LIVE this year!

Merry Christmas!

It seems that I'm still stuck in a rut. Nothing seems to be working long term. A lot of that is the mental blocks ...
HAPPY SPRING!

Merry Christmas!

It seems that I'm still stuck in a rut. Nothing seems to be working long term. A lot of that is the mental blocks I put in my own way. But I am going to work on those. I need to face and overcome these pests, boggarts, feelings so I can move forward once and for all.

Remember Make it fun!

CHANGE OF PLANS!

My old plans haven't been working lately like they have in the past. So for the next 12 weeks (11 now) I am going to relax and enjoy. I'm not going to track my food unless I feel like it. I'm not going to stress about burning X number of calories or getting in X number of fitness minutes. I'm tired and bored of the same old same old.

Here's my new plan.

Eat with a focus on healthy, whole foods as much as possible. Eat at home more. Take my lunch to work instead of eating out most days.

Exercise 5 days a week, 20 minute minimum. One day a week do a longer 50 - 60 min (or more) workout. Build up core/lower body muscles so I can start rock climbing again. So 2 days a week will include weights.

Relax... read, take a bath, journal gratitude's, or even try meditating. Learn to just be without having to be doing... something.

As my husband's work isn't going great he's going to start job hunting and for the first time in over 20 years I've agreed to let him look out of state. I love where we live now, but hate the government and taxes we have. So I think working on decluttering at least 1 hour a week to get ready in case we move is a good goal.

My plan: 1-2-3-4.

I have 4 areas I'm working on and will focus on doing just those 4 things consistently.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4

1. Exercise – Cardio 140 minutes a week or 10,000 steps a day… NO EXCUSES!
2. Track it all… every day! Every bite, every morsel, everything… NO EXCUSES!
3. Strength train 30-30-30 (30 wall/counter pushups, 30 calf raises & 30 seated leg lifts every day, building the strength moves until I can do 100 of each NO EXCUSES!
4. Clean it up! 15 minutes a day, every day of house cleaning/decluttering… NO EXCUSES!

I started in June 2006 on my own lost 30 lbs, joined SP April 2007 and have now lost a total of 40lbs. Although I am not a my ideal/goal weight I am much healthier and fit. I am upset with myself for backsliding this far. Right now I'm at the same weight (or a little above)

Thanks for your comment, and support! Sad thing is that I probably could have done it today, though not after all the moving of stuff we did! But yesterday I felt like utter crud, and I learned the hard way that exercise--particularly crunches--when I have a migraine is a Very Bad Idea. Never to be repeated.

But I'm glad that my reasons make sense to you. I always worry about that line between "this is a reasonable reason for not doing x, listening to my body, etc." and "I'm being whiny and making up excuses. Get your butt off the couch and do it anyway." It's not always easy to know where that line is; it is tempting some days to say "I can't" when what I really feel is "I don't wanna." Especially when I hurt.

Thank you so very very much for your kind words on my blog and the suggestions. I am thinking about doing the dollar a week if my tracking is every day that week. Just can't afford one dollar a day and one dollar a month is too long. You can count yourself as an inspiration to me as well as others.

Aww, thank you for the goodie, and the message! I'm not doing so hot at the remembering to have fun, but I did go and spend an entire afternoon today learning how to make bobbin lace, which was fun *grin* I'm glad I inspire you, because you have been a constant source of both encouragement and inspiration for me.
