LEPRACTIVE--Wow...can feel the workout!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I don't think I've been this sore from exercise EVER, I could really tell I'd done that mile brisk walk exercise and using the weights, if I don't start getting stronger arms, something's wrong.

Ok, that just sounded weird, but I'm sure you know what I mean. It's cold outside, but then it is still Winter until the 21st.

Oh and HAPPY ST PATRICKS DAY, so I've been LEPRACTIVE, in other words, running here and there, getting things done and determined to do all my exercise like a little leprechaun. As sore as I was this morning, I wasn't sure I'd want to do them, or make it through, but I DID! YAY!!

I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day and stay LEPRACTIVE all day long, enjoy it, smile through it, and remember to love yourself, ALWAYS!

Ok, my word for the day is Extracise...why? because I did my extra exercise, along with the others. I did the mile walk, in 15 minutes, it's another video I'd found that I did once this week already, I'm going to try to add that 3 times a week.

I'm still using the 3 pound weights with my upper body exercise, and boy can I feel it, but I'm glad I'm able to do them.

Anyway, there you go, Extracise...I think I feel better today because yesterday on the way home with my son, 2 special songs came on the radio, back to back.

I have to do a background info here, my Dad LOVED the song "Piano Man" by Billy Joel, he also loved Bluebirds..I think I mentioned that before.

Anyway, on the way home "Piano Man" came on the radio, and I smiled, remembering how much Dad loved that song. Right after, the song "Daydream Believer" by Davey Jones came on...and the first line of that song? "Well I could fly, 'neath the wings, of a bluebird as she sings.."

I nearly cried, first my Dad's favorite song, then the next song was mentioning a bluebird in the first line.

Then tonight on the way home, once more, the song "Piano Man" came on the radio...a different station. God works in mysterious ways, and Dad keeps letting me know he's still with me.

Wow...amazing....what a beautiful weekend it's been!


Shopped out!

Friday, March 15, 2013

Didn't get the walk in today, but I did plenty of walking while getting groceries and other stuff I had to do all day bad I can't include it on my exercise. Oh well, least I know I did it, right?

Anyway, I'm going to try something different for lunch, I've been eating applesauce and cottage cheese, which I love, but I need to change once in a while. I also got some more cherry tomatoes (can't wait to grow them myself!) and my usual fav, cauliflower.

So I got my regular exercises done, which is most important, so I've already made my weeks "quota", so I'm ready to go.

Have a wonderful day, and don't get "shopped out" today, just smile and love who you are, where you are, and be proud of all you've accomplished!

Yep, you heard it right, I feel like a frog out leaping in the tall grass, a big smile on her face, why? because I have so many great supporters on here, so many who care about what I'm doing, and it makes me feel wonderful.

Not only that, but I was lucky enough to get 1000 spark points, which I shared with my friends on here, and the team too. I thought I'd buy myself something (a Sunflower plant, my Dad loved sunflowers and I saw that and had to get it.), but I had to buy everyone something because of their friendship, support, everything.

Thank you all for being here and for walking by my side as we go down this road, we'll all get there, because we have one another.

Snow Bee

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Frosty Bee Yep, that's how I feel today, flitting from place to place, even though we have snow outside, I'm not stopping.

Today I added 9 more minutes, of brisk walking and such exercise...and it wasn't too bad. I'd like to get up to the mile and 2 mile, then 3 mile, I'll do it, but I'm taking it slow.

I love this time of year, to look out and see the snow on the ground, almost dread the spring because then everything's a mess and when you have a golden retriever living with you, you have to clean him off everytime he comes into the house. The mud, the soggy ground, not my favorite time of year, but on the otherhand, blossoms, tree buds, grass getting green...ok, maybe it's worth it.

Anyway, have a wonderful day, don't give up, we're still going forward!!
