Successful Weekend!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

It feels so good to know that dispite feeling crappy most of Saturday I managed to meet my goals. Today, Sunday, was terrific. I felt like a new person after a great night's sleep. It was easy to meet all my goals today.

I'm looking forward to a successful week as well.

It's pretty warm out here!

Saturday, October 15, 2011

We're headed into the low 90's today! emoticon That's October in Colorado! Tomorrow is supposed to be almost as warm so I just may take the dogs to the doggie park after church and let them run wild.

I'm still a little woozy today, presumably from the shots and new meds, so I get to just enjoy, reflect and be content. I'll keep a notebook nearby so I can write things down as they come to me.

    Wow that is warm for CO, we had a nice day with a very cool start 45* It's to get cooler here so I put some thermal backing curtains up, warmer blankets, etc, done today and dup up my canases so when the low is 37* WED, we will be warmer.
We need rain how are you for the rain, we haven't had any real rain for over 1 month now, so I wet the canases first and had no problem digging them up.
Take care, enjoy the low temps as the cold and snow will come!!

Day One, Again, Officially, per working with my doctor. emoticon

My lab work came back and let's just say I need to be absolutely consistent with my plan and be very serious about getting this weight off. The plan he put me on is exactly what SP has encouraged all along.

Exercise is a little trickier. I am not allowed to walk because of the arthristis in the foot, however I am allowed to do water aerobics provided the pool is warm.

I needed to HEAR it. I go back for more labs just before turkey day and a follow-up just after. I plan to stun myself with progress!

ABC's of Consistency (well, some of them)

Thursday, October 13, 2011

(I will do A-G and hope somebody can provide the rest. I just don't have them)

A: Attitude. 90% of the game! Take on the attitude that YOU ARE IN CONTROL!!!!! YOU design and control your habits.

B: Belief. Visualize what you want to become and take steps to get yourself there. I emphasize steps. It is so much easier to see yourself as what you will be with each little step.

C: Confidence. Sometimes it comes in small doses with each little accomplishment you conquer. Get excited about change. Be around others for mutual support.

D: Determination. Be determined to succeed.

E: Emotional discipline. By watching what you eat and do you are increasing your energy.

F: Fear. Face it. I know, easier said than done. It would help if you know what you fear. Sometimes we're doing great and we turn around and self-sabotage.

G: Goals. This is so basic. Tick off your little accomplishments and steps you have conquered. Be proud of them! They snowball!

    This is GREAT!!! "I" internalize...make what you learn a new part of who you are. Good choices need to be more than thinking about them...it should be automatic.

carefully planning meals and snacks emoticon
making sure I take ALL my supplements emoticon
drinking ALL the recommended water emoticon
exercising at least 30 minutes per day, even if broken up into several segments emoticon

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
