Moving and grooving

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I am getting into exercise lately. I enjoy feeling how strong I am getting with each passing day. I can go longer and farther on my stationary bike. My legs have that comfortable ache to them. My clothes fit better some even baggy. I never thought I would start to enjoy exercising. It's empowering to know that I can make wise healthy choices for my life. I have started to incorporate childhood games and activities into my routine. I can confidently do this because of my small children. Tag has never been this much fun. Finding new ways to move and having fun with it, is something I hope will stick with me for the long haul.

Meal planning

Sunday, July 21, 2013

This weekend I am working on organizing my kitchen so it is easier to plan some meals. I didn't realize how much food I already have in my cupboards until I took a look and wrote it down. I have already made a menu for the week just with the food I have in the house. I could probably even plan another few more days. What a good start in organizing.

Off Track

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I have been struggling to stay on track. I feel like I'm trying to play catch up. Luckily I haven't been gaining any weight. I must have something to learn before I can start losing again. Consistency I know is the key to success, but I don't always do the small thing everyday. I've got the time to do this. I have the support. I have most of the tools in place.
I let mundane life get in the way. It's easier that way. It's all boils down to a matter of choice. I must choose differently daily.

    This is me all over. emoticon

I was doing well for 3 weeks in a row, then it fell apart. Not like crazy fall apart, just not keeping up with it. Mundane life totally got in my way!

I have found that the amount of spark points I get everyday directly correlates to how well I've been doing. Even though I've fallen off track, I did come in everyday to get my morning 'spin' points. I feel that little bit of points/consistency kept me from lapsing terribly.

concentrated breathing

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

I discovered today that I can jog for exercise. I'm not great at it, but I can actually do it. What I found out about the process is that it I concentrate on controlling my breathing and less on the run then I can go farther. Now I am not what I would call a runner. Running is hard. But I can add a little jog to my powerwalk and feel like I actually worked out. There really is a natural "high" to me felt when your heart starts pumping and your breathing becomes stronger. It was a good walk today.


enviro change motivation

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

What is giving me the greatest motivation is seeing how my world is changing with me. While my body is changing and getting healthy so is my house getting cleaner and more streamline. My kids are eating healthier. My husband has more energy. I am able to let go of things that no longer serve me. My kitchen is organized. My meals are little better planned. My time is better used at least most of the time. And I'm enjoying life more. I take notes of all the changes inside myself and the outside that I live.
