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.


Starting Week 2

Friday, July 18, 2014

Talk about the difference a day can make. I feel great and am not tired.
I am not sure why I go through these bouts a few times a month but they are almost scary.
It is beautiful outside and it is Friday. I am looking forward to the weekend. It is full of fun. My baby sisters bridal shower and then one of my other sisters and her kids are coming for a visit over night. We have such a good time together and the kids also have fun.
I did remember my spark tracker again. Almost forgot. I was loading up my car and then remembered. The important part is that I did remember.
My new goal next week is to start walking 3 times per day. Once in the morning, once at lunch and once in the evening. Just short walks, but it will get me moving.
So this is where I am at:
1. I will continue to blog - I think this REALLY helps.
2. I will continue to wear my tracker.
3. I will start to walk 3x/day during the week.
Everyone have a great weekend. emoticon

Doing much better

Thursday, July 17, 2014

It was a tough day yesterday. I am trying to figure out what went different, but I am not sure. I did not sleep real well and because I did not feel well the night before I missed my vitamins.
Last night I did not have a snack.
This morning I still felt not so good, but this afternoon I am definitely feeling much better. Just a sore neck and a slight headache.
This seems to be a cycle that I go through.
I will continue to keep track for the rest of the month and maybe beyond.
Good new is that I remembered my spark tracker again. All week I have been remembering it. That is my goal for this week.
I have not decided what my next week goal is, but I will decide before Monday.

Last day of the posting week

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Today is a little tough. I am not feeling so good so it is hard to think about eating healthy. It is hard to think about eating.
I am tired and have a long day ahead of me. It is my daughters dance class tonight and so I will not be home until about 8. I just want to sleep.
Why. What did I do different yesterday?
I had a bed time snack. Could that be it. I would not think so, but it is a good start. I will try to eliminate the bed time snacks. Especially ones with chocolate. Maybe a nice decaf tea.
I took my meds except for the one that I ran out of yesterday.
I did not take vitamins because I was starting to drag as of last night.
On the positive: I did wear my Spark Tracker. I even had to figure out where to put it because I am wearing a dress and it works best if you put it on your waist. emoticon

    Maybe your body just wanted some rest. Sometimes, you just gotta chill - both mind and body. Don't worry about anything, let it be what it wants. And have no regrets about relaxing.
