End of another week

Friday, July 25, 2014

This is the end of another week and I kept with my daily goals quite well.
Wear tracker - 4 days
Walk 3 - 10 minutes walks 5 days
Blog - 5 days.
My goal it to keep it up over the weekend. I makes me feel good and also motivated when I remember to keep going and become consistent with my goals.
Next week my added goal is to keep better track of my Spark Coach goals and use that to decided what my added goal will be for the week after that.
It is a busy weekend and I am tired, but I am sure that I will be able to find some time to rejuvenate.
FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE - It was a great week with a lot of accomplishments.


Nature is the best motivation

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I got out on my 1st walk today very early. What a motivation. It is making my day. The smells the peace and the beauty.
I have almost 3000 steps today already so hyped I am!
It is going to get warm today and I am not into the heat to I will do the treadmill for the other 20 minutes of walking. I do not mind the treadmill.
Sleep was a little sparce last night, but I do have energy even though I am a little tired.
FOCUS ON THE POSTIIVE...All Goals were met yesterday.
Thankyou for listening.
Have a blessed day.

Beautiful Day

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I did it. I made ALL of my goals yesterday and enjoyed it!
This might seem small, but I had over 5000 steps yesterday and 30 minutes of exercise. This is huge to me. I feel great today.
It is a lovely day, a little worm, but still lovely. I am motivated and happy.
I walked this morning for my 1st 10 minute walk. I was putting it off and then I remembered my blog yesterday. The smells and sounds. The meadow is the greatest. I gives me a sense of peace.
FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE...the meadow the God gave to enjoy.
That is all for today.
Everyone have a great day!

Back on schedule

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Yesterday I kept finding reasons why I could NOT walk. Work kept coming at me, it was too hot, had to take the dogs to the vet, it is too late...
Thinking about that I feel that I need to "find" reason why I can walk.
I was thinking of these:
I enjoy the sound of the birds and crickets, the smell of the flowers, the gentle breeze blowing in my face... there are so many things to enjoy why would I not want to walk. Isn't it funny that even though we like something there are always what seems to be reasons why we cannot do that.
OK - som of the reasons are good, but it is not like every minute of my day was filled. I did have time and I could have even walked on my treadmill at home and watched TV. I like home improvement shows.
So bottom line is I am on schedule today:
Remembered my blog, my tracker, and walking.
I feel great even though I did not get much sleep.
FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE...That is what I am going to strive for instead of the negative. I will be in touch tomorrow and tell about the positive again.
See you for now. emoticon

OOPS! Missed the weekend.

Monday, July 21, 2014

I missed blogging this weekend. I was very busy, but with fun things. My sister and her girls were at my house this weekend. We went to my baby sisters bridal shower and then just spent the rest of the weekend with each other. I love it when she comes and stays because it is relaxing. we talk and watch the kids have fun. We swim and sit around the fire etc etc etc.
I am tired this morning, but I had to take benadryl last night because I felt a sinus infection coming on. I believe I have avoided the infection because the face does not throb anymore.
It is a great day. I started on the correct foot by taking the 10 minute walk that I promissed myself.
What I forgot was the tracker. I need to pick up and get back on track tomorrow morning with the tracker.
This time I will not put myself down for forgetting and just pick back up where I ended.
