I do believe my motivation is returning. Hmmm...Marvy!

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Well, what a beautiful morning it is! I think that my little streak may be just what I needed to kick me in the tush!

First of all, I have discovered I don't care for weighing myself every day. Weight fluctuates too much daily for me to be encouraged. So going back to weekly or even monthly weigh ins.

I need to revisit my food choices and work out plans. Now that I am making the effort to move more, I am finding my Spark again. I really thought I's lost it for good.

Today, I had a lovely surprise here on my SP. I got 25 log in points and 25 bonus points. It made me smile! It's the little things, you know!

Well, I have rambled and see there is no rhyme or reason to this post, but that is so okay!

Have a spectacular day!

    Ah Yes....the little things, that's what it is all about. Couldn't agree with you more. Things like the sunshine, the smell of fresh cut grass, someone waving you through at a 4 way stop when they were clearly there first. - the unexpected hug from your SO or someone holding the door form you.

Yes, it most certainly is the lttle things that I like most about life emoticon

Busy busy week.....

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

...and it is not even Wednesday! Day three of my streak...10 minutes walking/marching in place and...wait for it...4397 steps! I think I underestimated how many steps I tend to take on an average day and how much I would have to work to bring it up to 800. I'll finish the week and see how i do, and I may step up to another team on the virtual tour.

Work has been crazy these last two days with one of my team members off for a well deserved couple of days vacation. I went in early yesterday and today, tired both days. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight.

Actually, I should sleep like a baby tonight, as I finally settled a long standing worry after work. After weeks of anxiety, and imaging the worst, I was thrilled and so very relieved that I, as usual, blew the whole thing out proportion in my mind. It went smoothly, quickly, and with lots of laughter.

So now, it is past my bed time as it has taken me 45 minutes to write this short piece. Now I know I am tired. *smiles* Once again, here is to day 3 of my streak. I can't wait to see how long I can make, but am content to focus on one day at a time.

Sweet Sleep....

    WTG on your streak. and good job on the steps.

adding just 10 more steps a day can become an additional 100 and so on.
That's how I built my steps up to doing over 20,000 a day.

Day two follow-up

Monday, April 01, 2013

Well, I walked home from work today. 1.5 miles in just under 30 minutes. For anyone else, a stroll...for me? Pretty darn good! 3467 steps...great second day!

I didn't sleep much last night, I was so wound up that I didn't get to bed until 11:00. I read for a while, turned off my light and just laid there. *sighs* I was up when my alarm sounded at 4:30 this morning. I got dozy at work but caught a second wind after lunch. After my walk, I am exhausted and all the chores I had planned may get done tomorrow.

I am gonna sleep SO well tonight! In the mean time, I guess I should have a light bite to eat and just a little tv time, then soft, welcoming, snuggly bed.

Spring has Sprung (at least here in Sin City)

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I almost hate to say anything, but I think my desire and motivation are making themselves felt again. I'm so tired of feeling hopeless...It is so not like me. I think this may be a result of my thyroid leveling out...or the whole new beginning of Spring...or...... What ever the reason ( I am so not going to try and figure out the whys and wherefores, I'm just going to DO IT!) I'm rethinking goals and making them a little more realistic and breaking them down into steps. Again, not over think and plan...I can spend hours planning and not doing. (Big problem for me!)

I joined the Bibblemun Track Virtual Trek found in Team Indy Girl. This should be a good start. Joined team 2, 800 steps and 10 minutes of exercise. I can do this. I'll post my progress...

    Glad to see you feeling a bit more like YOU. Little goals are the way to make solid progress.
I've been going through a temporary set-back, too, so I'm also re-examining.....
