Winter Stress Relief

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

This challenge allows me to start thinking more and more about relieving some of my stress and boy do I need it right now.

There are several things that I do already:

1. massage (I go several times a month)
2. find alone time each day
3. read for pleasure
4. vent/talk with my BF on a regular basis

Some things that I need to try:

1. deep breathing/meditation
2. staying in the moment
3. laugh and cry more/stop internalizing my anger and frustration
4. exercise more vigorously and more often

I should also try and get more rest and will continue to strive for this.

This is a tall order, but I have faith that I can do it.

    My trick for managing multiple goals that could overwhelm me is to put in 10 minutes on each thing. Pretty soon, I get focused and the overwhelm thing goes away. These are good goals. You will be nurtured by these activities emoticon

Fall Reflections

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

At the beginning of the challenge I knew the following five things were holding me back:

1. not enough exercise
2. needing an adjustment in my thyroid meds (age)
3. finding a balance between eating and exercise
4. need to schedule exercise/make it a priority
5. challenge myself more to try new things and push myself to the limit when exercising

1. I did more exercise and was a bit more consistent, but I still need to do more.

2. My thyroid meds are fine for the moment. Even though I still think I need an adjustment, just cannot do anything at the moment.

3. Did better with balancing my eating and exercise. My overall calorie intake has lowered some.

4. Still need to work on making exercise a consistent priority. Did find that if I can get in a workout in the morning or with my BF I do better.

5. Still need to challenge myself more.

Continuing to work on these areas and making exercise a regular part of my daily routine.

Fall Challenge

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Five things that could be holding me back from reaching my goals:

1. not enough exercise
2. needing an adjustment in my thyroid meds (age)
3. finding a balance between eating and exercise
4. need to schedule exercise/make it a priority
5. challenge myself more to try new things and push myself to the limit when exercising

This challenge I am going to focus on making exercise a priority. With my new job and school, finding time will be a balancing act for sure.

Wish me luck.

    Good luck! Sometimes it is very difficult to find the time to exercise I think if you schedule the exercise that will help. Maybe if you just do it in 10 minute increments you can push yourself harder.

Reflections

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

It seems that I am finally getting the swing of working out on a more regular basis. I continue to struggle with this, but I am hopeful that I can keep it going.

My day class this fall is in the afternoon, so if I can keep my motivation to workout going in the morning, then I will succeed.

Still trying to get rid of the last three pounds, but am content with my weight if that is what my body needs. My eating is under control, so that is and has been conquered. I have increased my fruits and veggies this challenge, which makes me happy.

Keeping it real and continuing to change my mindset and what I need to do for me.

Could not do this without the support of my SP friends.

Ultimation

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I am starting to see my weight creep up, so one of my goals is to drop back down to my lowest weight (156), which is one pound short of my goal weight (155).

To reach my goal I am determined to work out more consistently, including adding yoga to help with my body awareness and flexibility. I am hoping that yoga will help my shoulder heal as well.

I will continue to track my food, eat healthy, and keep up or increase my water intake.

Lots of motivation and support is always appreciated.
