Progress, balance and sustainability

I am in the process of adopting a healthy lifestyle since 2012.

Fall 2015:
Newly engaged and finishing my dissertation while working part time -- the next 12 months carry many stressors and underwater rocks. I want to develop strength and balance to glide through them.

I am in the process of adopting a healthy lifestyle since 2012.

Fall 2015:
Newly engaged and finishing my dissertation while working part time -- the next 12 months carry many stressors and underwater rocks. I want to develop strength and balance to glide through them.

I also signed up for my first marathon on February 15, 2016. Now working on converting aspirations into resilience and stamina.

I set my goals based on the seven dimension of wellness:

Physical
• Get to 150 lb and 22% body fat
• Exercise x3-4/week
• Eat balanced meals and vitamins daily
• Go to bed early and wake up 6:30-7am

Emotional
• Find at least 5 good things in every setback
• Stop comparing myself to others
• Take responsibility for thoughts-feelings-behaviors

Social
• Complain no more than 15 min/day
• Show appreciation and love to fiance and mom daily
• Set boundaries with others

Spiritual
• Be grateful for what I have
• Practice mindfulness and meditate daily
• Remember what drives my work

Occupational
• Complete my PhD by May 30 2016
• Read widely in research
• Continue networking for post-doc during year

Intellectual
• Limit social networking and junk web browsing to 30 min/day
• Set goals weekly and evaluate myself
• Read for pleasure

Environmental
• Keep my house and workspace clean weekly
• Recycle/compost
• Escape the city at least monthly

Spring 2014:
Back again!

Fall 2013:
Ran the Long Beach Half Marathon. Grad school hit hard and I stopped running or doing pretty much anything...

Summer 2013:
I took a month long break after completing the 10K due to stress from finals and written qual examples. In July I registered for my first half marathon as promised. Now, I have to continue on!

Winter 2013:
It''''s been a year since I began my transition into a healthy lifestyle. Some things became habits, others need more integration. This is my comeback to "make it real".

Summer 2012:
After completing my first 5K (05/20/12), I stopped logging food, thinking that exercise alone will do the trick. It is not so! In time I succumbed to poor eating habits even while running 6 mi/wk. Now I''''m back to re-evaluate myself. I''''ve made some lasting changes to my lifestyle but more needs to be done. It''''s a work in progress!

Spring 2012:
I lost 10lb in 8 weeks of Winter quarter, but stopped exercising and tracking food due to the stress of finals. In April I started the routine again, aiming for another 10lb loss by the end of Spring quarter.
I also signed up for my first 5K, which will happen May 20. I''''m really excited about the changes I''''m making in my life!

Winter 2012 (beginning):
I was 135lb last January. Over the year I gained 35lb. I graduated college, moved in with my boyfriend and started graduate school. Something went wrong and now, for the first time in my life, I''''m bordering on overweight. In addition, in October I had emergency appendectomy which made me reevaluate my health.
This January 2012 I begin a program to get back on track.

Thank you for the Spark Support!

Hey! Thanks for the welcome! I just read your about me, and I'm excited for your marathon! I'm an on-again off-again runner with several 5ks and one half under my belt. I'm currently off-again (hip pain), but I like running vicariously. 😊

Aw, thanks. Its been a "so so" week...Thursday & yesterday were a bit rough. Ok they were--emotional experiences etc. But today is looking up! Hoping to hit the gym this eve (its a rainy day)...but goin to the gym is my "boost" or reward to get most things done in prep for my nieces birthday party first! Hope YOU are having afabulous Saturday & do something extra special for *you* today, to remind yourself you are unlike anyone else & are worth so much LOVING on!!! :) emoticon emoticon

Thank you for the friend add. I've added you, too. I work hard to keep my journey positive to keep my motivation high. I've been blogging on The Beck Solution which is the most helpful book I've ever read. Beck teaches us to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to change our inner sabotaging thoughts into helpful thoughts. Best investment of time, ever.

I don't mind the friend add at all! I write those blogs mostly for myself. I find it helpful to go back read old blogs when my motivation is waning or old fears seem to be stalking me. I'm glad you like them, too. emoticon
