In need of some encouragement

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Ugh. The dreariness and cold of this winter, combined with the fact that I've been sick for what feels like weeks, are really getting to me. I'm so tempted to not only fall off the wagon, but set it on fire and dance around it while I eat macaroni and cheese!!

Help! How are you guys coping with this?! What can I do to lift my spirits so that I feel like eating healthy and working out??!!

    Hope you are doing better by now. I love the phrase, "Moving in May", and am gearing up for an active May in wonderful weather. I found your comment on one of my blogs from years ago, so just stopped by to check on you and say hello.

    I know what you mean. It has been a long winter here in Massachusetts, and I've been feeling under the weather for too long. Hang in there! Please treat yourself with extra kindness--spring is on its way!

How about brainstorming some mini-goals for moving/working out and rewards for the rest of the week and for February to get geared up for spring?

Put on some zippy music and paint your toenails a new fun color, and put on some bright lipstick, for starters. Buy yourself some flowers or put on a bright scarf. Go for a mall walk and notice the spring fashions. Ask a friend to join you for a workout or to try a new class together. emoticon Maybe try a new Spark recipe every week, too!

needing a shove in the right direction

Thursday, August 08, 2013

You know when you get off track? Like, seriously off track? Like "I can't believe I just ate that" off track????!!!

Yeah. That's where I am today. Staring at a number on the scale that I cannot believe that I'm seeing.

I need a shove in the right direction, so I'm shoving myself today. But not in an aggressive a "This is what's best for you, like it or not" kind of way.

Shoves from others will be greatly appreciated as well. :)

    And tomorrow is now today! I fight procrastination on a daily basis--usually relating to correcting papers.

Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

Way to go, Danni!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Did any of you watch the Biggest Loser this season? If so, the following might be a spoiler (since I'm going to talk about last night's finale).......

I am so proud of Danni for winning last night!!! I have been watching her and have been inspired by her the entire season! I'm also really happy for everyone who found success this season. As a woman, it's always awesome to watch another woman dig down deep and find her inner athlete.

I'm hoping to do the same in the coming weeks.

Go Danni!!!

    I love her and was so happy she won! She was a huge inspiration all season. My three favorites were actually the three finalists, that usually never happens!
