An older picture of me from earlier this year. Love my hair! lol
Procrastination is one of the words that I want to cut out of my vocabulary. You know how you think about doing something (like losing weight, starting an exercise plan or cleaning out that hall closet) and put it off over and over again?
Now since I've started the weight loss process and love to exercise I'm still waiting to link my thoughts with my actions and get that closet renewed. I'll do it...eventually.
Putting off something I can do today until another time is fruitless. I would hate for someone else to have to delegate my trash from treasure.
I sometimes workout late because I'm thinking about doing it earlier but the time passes and I'm getting it done later than I wanted to.
I mentioned in another blog that I eat my meals late sometimes or most of the time. Does that cost me anything? If I have not met all of my nutrition goals it can and it does. Coming up short on protein and it's 10 pm I'm not wanting to eat meat nor do I desire to eat beans that late. So how do I plan on conquering this word and taking it out of my life?
Just doing it. What made me want to work this out was paperwork I received to take filled out to the Physical Therapy appt I have tomorrow. I received on Saturday. Didn't fill them out then and pledged...to myself...to complete them on Sunday. But...IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
Well I'm going to complete part of them today and the rest before the 2:30 appointment. It's almost midnight here and I really should have taken them with me while I was completing some work and wiped them out but I can't keep thinking about what I should have did. But next time I will.
I am pledging to do better on procrastination...that's why it has taken me this long to get fit and fine...lol...fit and healthy. It's all good. Do any of you have a problem with Procrastination? Maybe I'm the only one on this side of Sparkland. Have you already conquered Procrastination? Let me know all about it!
It's so amazing how being added as a friend can make me so very happy and motivated for success. I believe that this journey is a community journey and we need each other to succeed.
We all should know that people who are involved in a community like SparkPeople are more likely to meet their health and fitness goals and maintain them.
So I feel surrounded by so much love. I love friends. I need friends. I appreciate all of my friends. As we travel down this road with different personal goals, we ALL have the same goal...TO GET TO THE FINISH LINE.
What I want to say to my new Friends...Glad to Have You On board the Love Boat.
To my old friends...So Happy You are Still Holding it Down Faithfully.
I am humbled and love to be accountable. Today I took a slow walk and jumped a few times on that mini tramp. I had my 5 fruits and veggies today and I have breathed deeply. lol Have a couple more glasses of water to drink and another snack. Yes I eat late because my meals are normally eaten late. (YOU KNOW YOUR BODY DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS WHEN YOU EAT AND IT METABOLISES YOUR FOOD THE SAME WAY MORNING NOON OR NIGHT?)
I do try to eat something light the later it gets. Don't want my digestive system to have to work too hard as I prepare to go to sleep.
Again... to my new friends and to my old faithful friends. We are a goal getting kind of group!
One more thing: You are Required to . Can you do that for me?
Have a great night!
Ok...I've been missin you all. One day without my connection and I go CRAZY!!!
Still not able to connect so I am at the library just to log because I have serious work to do. I am involved in the write a novel in the month of November. That's 50,000 words and 179pages. I am so excited. I started on Thursday and have written 3339 words already. I have a great imagination and a writer by Gift and trade so it's really easy for me to put words together and since you ALL should know I am long winded I will reach my goal before November 30, 2010. Not too late to start: www.nanowrimo.org
Eating was good Thursday and got me some great rebounding time and lower body strength work. Starting the physical therapy next week and wonder how it will be.
Looking forward to meeting my November goals with everyone else. We can do this.
Stay positive and keep SMILING!!!
If you are reading this, you have something to smile about. You made it another day!
God bless you and enjoy Friday!
I'm so Happy to be Alive!!! (DID YOU VOTE TODAY?) God is Good all the time!!!
That's the day I fell in the Drainage Canal...Before...I could have drowned. Thank God I am Saved!
So I have some BIG goals for the month! I will work Hard to get them accomplished. With God ALL things are possible. I'm counting on you to cheer me on as I do the same for you. I will work hard and strong. I'm ready for more results. God is so good to us all. He can make changes happen to your body if you stay in Faith and Love and only Believe!!!
I love my Spark Family. Without you I would not be this far. THANK YOU ALL!!!
It's a great idea to have goals for the month that will get you through the month and the end of the year if necessary! Think Big and go for it!!!
That Giant will not win. That Weapon you have is more Powerful! Use it!
My goals for November:
* Lose 10 lbs this month. I'm dreaming BIG and aiming HIGH
* Eat within my calorie range of 1200-1550.
* Workout doing strength training 5 times a week.
* Cardio as often as possible.
* Increase breathing and stretching exercising.
Blessings to you all for a great healthy and fit month!!!
It was a Great Day today in Tulsa fellowshipping after Church at Panera Bread with a couple of friends.
I had the Soup and 1/2 Sandwich. Soup was lowfat Chicken Tortilla soup and had the plain smoked turkey w/out mayo. Had an apple...then I ate an oatmeal raisin cookie while talking. That will get you all the time...but I'm not going to sweat that. It happens and might even happen again. I love oatmeal raisin cookies.
We left late coming back home from Tulsa mainly my fault for lingering a little longer with my two good friends. But it was a great ride and won't have to go back again for a while.
So How was your day? Did you eat too much at lunch? Miss your breakfast? Ate half the candy you bought to take to your Autumn party or Hallelujah Celebration? Ate your children's candy...almost all of it?
How Did You Do Today? Don't get wiped out about it. Monday is a new day and a new Month for greater goals!
I can too!!!
HAPPY SUNDAY! SMILE GOD LOVES YOU AND I DO TOO.
