Should be National Walk Your Dog Weekend.....

Friday, March 16, 2012

I think it should be National Walk your Dog weekend. Good for you. Good for the pups too.
Don't forget to be sure your flea, tick, and heart worm medicine is up to date. emoticon
Enjoy your time with your furry friend!

    My two get a walk every day and I always feel so good afterwards. They like it best when it is windy, seems to get them all stirred up and they bounce around all over the show. They love chasing each other and go so fast, as if they are playing tag. When they catch each other they then have a turn being the chaser. I'd swear they were human sometimes!!! They also make me laugh with their antics so it is good all round!

So I put on a pair of jeans tonight......

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

they felt more snug then then usual. Grrr! emoticon
My work day was exhausting. Then I was frustrated because I needed to go to 2 church meetings and the weather was phenominal. emoticon
Then I realized the jeans I had on were my one size smaller pants! emoticon
(Ok not that much smaller, but smaller then the ones I had been wearing.)
I went to the meeting. We approved 2 missions that I favor. emoticon
It was too late for my friends to join me on my walk. emoticon
It was 65 degrees on a March evening. The streets were nearly empty. emoticon
I had time to reflect. emoticon emoticon My mind was refreshed.
I had time to pray. emoticon The night was clear and I think the prayers flew straight on up.
I believe you would call the smaller pants a NON emoticon victory. emoticon

Response to Coach Nicoles' blog-The Secret to Loving Your Body Isn't Losing Weight

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

As I began to read this article I was thinking how wrong it is. I finished it and read it again with an open mind. I get it, loosing weight especially for all the wrong reasons is not a magic cure all. Yes, exercise brings physical and mental changes that are fantastic. But in the end your mind needs to adjust too. Your mind needs to be a part of the life changing healthy lifestyle. Statistics will tell you that people who have a gradual weight loss have the most long term success. I'm nearly 100 pounds overweight. I don't for the most part like my bodies appearance. I am thankful that my body is healthy & strong. It get's me to where I need to be. I try to dress it the best I can. My mind is also healthy and it makes me uniquely me. I am a good person. I expect my desired weight. loss will make me stronger & healthier as well as more physically appealing. With that I expect more confidence. I assume I will not be so self-conscious when I walk in front of people or attend a class reunion. My extra weight does not define who I am unless I choose to let it. Unfortunately as it is it does limit what goals I can obtain. It's just the ugly truth of it. But in the end a physical change in my body is not the complete magic ticket. It will unlock a door. Once I get there the rest is up to me. It's important that my mind walks every step of the journey with me. If I work on it all together my life will benefit. But the ups and downs of life will continue on no matter what my weight is.

    The human mind is an amazing thing. What we think and feel is so important on the healthy living journey. If I think I can I will, if I think I can't, I won't. We have to believe in ourselves above all else, because if we don't then I think we are destined to fail. And even if we lose a few pounds, and feel good for a while, it won't last because our mind hasn't really changed, and that is what will ultimately determine our success. I believe if we can get our mindset right, then all else will follow from there. We have to value ourselves as people, as human beings, because each and every one of us is amazing, and different, in our way.

    Well said. Keeping a focus on eating and moving with our health in mind will help us ultimately keep the weight off we are so fortunate to see at the scales and through our manhy non-scale victories throughout this great journey we're on. All this without losing the personality within. You'll make this work.

    Yes, I think you are right. One thing strikes me in my case... I have gained A LOT of weight in the last 4 years. Yet, I see my body almost the same way as before: I thought I was big. And I still do. The difference is that I had a normal weight before and now I am obese... So, I am not sure if I lose the weight it will change a lot in my mind. But I do believe it is my own problem. :)
