Doing it right!

Thursday, February 28, 2013

emoticon Wow, got a good workout today, I was actually sweating more than I had in the past with the same exercises, does that mean I'm working harder at them? I hope so, because it feels like it.

What a great day it's been, well, for me, not my daughters dog, who's wearing a cone because he keeps licking his legs where they were shaved for the surgery. Poor thing, but we have to do it because they were getting irritated bad, so we had to start putting meds on them.

Oops, went off-subject, but I'M BACK!! Anyway, I can really feel that I've been working my back muscles (on the side) because they're a little sore, but I'm glad they are, it shows I'm doing something that's achieving something else. Great, right?

We ended up with about 6" more snow, but that's fine with me, I love snow, just can't get out to walk, but that's ok too, because I have my videos.

I've been loving being able to help others, it may sound selfish, but it makes me feel so good and like I'm actually doing something, THANK YOU! At least I hope it's helping others :D

Anyway, my word for the day? FUNTASTIC and you have a FUNTASTIC DAY!


Gains...losses......broken blogs?

Dieting Was worried, thought it didn't want me to leave a blog today, I couldn't get the button to work. :D But it gave in, see I can make it do what I want...just like I can make my body do what I want, all I need to do is get it going and I'll get there some day!!

I'd measured myself yesterday, found I'd lost a few inches on my waist (YEAH!), but gained .5 on my hips...ok...what's going on...did it all slide from my waist to my hips? *L*

I also noticed an increase in my thighs, but I'm thinking that is because now I'm exercising them and they're getting in shape, which is great news.

I hope you all continue to find a way to smile, and have a BEAUTIFUL day!!


No Snow storm, good day so far

Walking 2 Well this morning I had my usual (which, for some reason, I'm not like most people it seems like, I love having the same thing for breakfast, my peanut butter cheerios, milk, and hard boiled I weird? oh and don't forget my skim milk!)

I got my exercises down, and was checking the amount, and if I keep up like I am, I'll be OVER for my exercises and calories burned, that's WONDERFUL!! I'm so excited, I think it'll be the first week I'm over, PLUS my doctor has been wanting me to do 30 mins 3 times a day, and I've been doing 32 mins EVERY DAY!

It's almost like getting up and brushing my teeth, the only thing I wish I had were some dumbells, but for now I'm using 2 cans, one a "Healthy Choice" soup can, and the other a "Chili Beans" can (hopefully my husband won't want chili soon. :D

Anyway, The snowstorm we were supposed to have went south, so looks like not much is going to happen here. I'd be happy if it melted (but I LOVE snow) and I'd try getting out and walking daily, like I used to. Now I'm excited about doing that, believe that or not!!

Anyway, looks like another great day, I hope you all have a great one also!

Bounce Today I could tell I'd done a workout, I think I've finally gotten down exactly which muscles should be worked the back (sides) are a little sore, not horribly, just a tinge, so I must have been working the right muscles. :)

Upon coming to my page today I saw I'd gotten a couple gifts, that really upped my spirits, thank you everyone, what a way to make someone feel good, I've got to figure out how to do it, and I think, from looking at my page I have.

I'm surprised I've stayed with this as long as i have, and it's mainly from reading the pages of others, and the encouragement, and especially, the help with the nutrition and exercise area. I've never had that before and now I'm motivated to stick with it. Thank you, SP, for all that you do for those like myself. What a wonderful program!


Not good

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Confused I feel really crummy because I didn't get the chance to get my exercise in, I had to ride 2 hours to get to my aunt's funeral, and then another 2 hour ride back, straight to church, then to eat supper with my mom, husband, and son. We just now got home, and well...I miss one day of my exercise (7Xweek) and I really feel bad about it.

I'm going to see if I can't get it in now, keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm going to work on it, I just hope the way it affects my insulin, I don't have a reaction at 2am, which happens with me and exercise. Such a vicious circle.

Anyway, tomorrow's another day, as they say.
