~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Towards the end of April 2009, I shifted my approach to health and fitness. I envisioned myself at my goal weight and imagined how I would have to eat and exercise to maintain. My philosophy now is simply to behave as if I'm already at my goal weight~as a fit ME would behave. (I'm 'being the change I want to see' in ME!)

I'm learning to abandon this notion of fitness as a destination rather than a way of being. I've recognized that when I attempt to get fit or lose weight, I usually harbor secret desires for what I can do when I'm done or for what I'll no longer have to do 'when I'm done'. The truth is I'll never be done. Now I'm working on moving past merely paying lip service to this concept.

Since then, I've really revolutionized my eating and fitness routine. I've defined a new 'normal'. And I love it.

My new motto is:
"My life is better this way."

Plain and simple, regardless of my weight, living this healthy lifestyle is worth it in so many ways. I'm happier and livelier!

January 2010
It's reflection time. Refocusing time. And of course, it's Boot Camp Time! I'm renewing my vows to love and cherish me through good and bad.


Member Since: 8/23/2008

Fitness Minutes: 11,031

My Goals:
January 2010 Goals!!

1. Complete Bootcamp

2. Track goals & streaks daily.

3. Reflect daily on plans, goals, and appreciations (things to be thankful for)


My Program:
Exercise Daily.
Set attainable goals.
Be proactive.



Personal Information:
WHERE DO I COME FROM?
A cozy place with a comfy couch, fuzzy blanket, and the oh-so-soothing (and mind-numbing!) TV!
I come from a more mental, internal place.

WHERE AM I GOING?
To a more active, balanced place where I remember the things I truly care about and act on them! It's great there! I love it each time I visit!

HOW WILL I GET THERE?
By setting small goals, following through, and rewarding my efforts.
I also must nurture my internal self by planning quiet, peaceful activities ('me time') that are fulfilling rather than mind-numbing!

    A woman after my own heart. Sometimes those dirty little tricks are all I have to keep myself going certain days. But whatever works! This is going to be a great year full of progress/improvement - one dirty trick at a time!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I was havin a really rough day, thanks for cheering me up!
    And you're right, I should just ask my friend to keep bad things to herself. She probably just didn't want to be offended alone, and I'm always the bold one, she probably wanted me to go up to them and say something!
    Either way, negative vibes... gone!

    Thank you for reading my blog. Sometimes it feels like no one is out there then I get comments on my blogs. It just reassures me that I'm not alone. emoticon

    And by the way, I hate the scale too. It always lies to me. Maybe I should step on it with both feet? Lol! emoticon emoticon emoticon
