My Eureka Moment

Thursday, April 04, 2013

I started thinking about this after SP told me I needed to lose 50 pounds emoticon Seems to be the number I am always battling. I have tried attacking it all at once. I've tried 10 pounds at a time, but that number keeps coming back. How am I ever going to get past this?

Husband and I love to hike. We even impressed ourselves with our trek last September in Big Pine to those beautiful alpine lakes. Not bad for a couple of old farts. emoticon

Our goal: To backpack into the wilderness for a few days.

But packs and gear are heavy, like 50 pounds? My Eureka moment. I will gladly trade these 50 pounds on my body for a 50-pound pack for a trek into the wilderness!

    Yay for you! Trekking in the wilderness is a fabulous goal!

If you are using walking as your cardio, you might want to try the same trick that my partner suggested for me --- after I lost the first 10lbs, I started walking with my empty pack on (it weighs about 10lbs), and now I am / will be adding 5lbs of weight in to the pack for each additional 5lbs I lose. This way, I am always pushing my workout and figure I'll be ready for carrying that pack full when we hit the back-country this summer.

Good luck and have fun!

I am feeling so positive

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Maybe it was the affirmation of my blood work results, that I've been doing at least the right stuff as far as WHAT I eat, lots of whole nonprocessed foods. The problem is "lots" -- well, that isn't even true because frankly I sit at my desk too many hours a day and usually only eat two meals a day, so obviously that has to change.

I am adding more good fuel to my diet and eliminating the sugars.

Mini goal of the day: 20 minutes of exercise.

I am learning to schedule everything else in my life. Time to add exercise.

Make it a good day! emoticon

  You are making positive changes in your life no matter how ever small it is .... it is still something to be proud of. You can do it. Keep it up.

It's been a busy day but am on track and motivated

Had my annual physical and blood work was textbook perfect. So the only improvement needed is weight loss.

Lots of good choices today and preparing things to eat that are easy and yummy. So far so good, but no exercise. That is the biggest challenge, but it's supposed to be warm tomorrow. Maybe it's time for the first dip in the pool for 2013.
