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!

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 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)

Thnk you Cindy, I will copy the text and pass it on. Never worry about getting it "right" as per instructions. The whole thing is supposed to lead people on to express themselves, not to feel constrained! The only one with a need for some type of justification is No. 6. I very much enjoyed your Reflection! emoticon

You are closer on Spark vs the site I posted calories. My trainer said what the new site did but spark keeps putting me at 1500-1800

How are HW classes going?

Thank you for the goal. I had this sudden image of me sliding into base under the home the catcher's glove, but a slide in is still a home run, right? emoticon

So tired it's ridiculous, but I just spent an hour this morning double checking stuff and I think I've got everything at least accounted for (not done yet, but I was double checking to make sure I hadn't forgotten something important).

Three and a half weeks before EVERYTHING has to be done, turned in, i's dotted, t's crossed, etc. Trying not to panic!
