An Inspiring goal - daily habits

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

I just read an Inspiring goal:
My overall goal is to successfully meet my daily goals. It is more rewarding to me to celebrate building healthy habits than to focus entirely on what the scale says. Over time, my weight will normalize.
I have some habits that either prevents me from loosing weight or distracts me from what I find important to do.
At the same time a day cannot only consist of should doīs
It must also consist of would like to do
I have just entered an art group where we work in our own field in a big house that has been a dairy factory.
This makes it easier to divide when it is working hours and when it is free time.
And the fact I work together with others rather than alone makes it more dynamic - I hope.
The difficult thing is that they drag crackers, and chocolate and candy with them. If I bring peeled carrots I should be able to stand it.
Anyway I believe it will be easier for me to meet my goals now. I hope. Maybe I could bicycle there some times. Its 8 km away.. Letīs see - I also want to row some of the days this summer..

    Maybe you can bring fruit, as well, or some pre-measured snacks .

getting out of isolation with your work could take it in some exciting directions as well. It sounds like a lot of fun! And I like the idea of setting a daily goal to achieve, rather than working endlessly on a long term goal. emoticon

    Carrots have saved me more times than I can count!....

And having others around while you create art is a wonderful dynamic! I LOVE it!

The fat one and the slim one

Monday, April 14, 2014

My 15 year old nephew visited me a couple of days.
When he had to leave he said he wasnīt hungry even though we had not eaten lunch
and my stomach was screaming.
I gave him some of our homemade bread and cake and a bottle of water anyway and said he could give some of it to his father when he came home. Elseways he wouldnīt have it for the 1hour45minutes trip.
Often when I am with slim, slender, thin people they do not feel as much hunger as I do.
To day a woman said to me: ― food doulbl exercise is the secret of her 20 kg weightloss. Arghh

    I am often surprised by the people who are nowhere near as hungry as I am, but then I have also come across thin people who are constantly ravenous. I guess everybody metabolizes differently.

    emoticon it always ASTOUNDS me when people say things like that, as if they have all the right in the world to say what we need to know and must not know. I can't help but wonder if they just don't know or if they are intentionally rude, aka cruel. I give them the benefit of the doubt and deem them *clueless* or I'd have to let them have it with my verbal clue*by*four! I am sorry you encountered someone so rude... it has much more to do with their cluelessness and lack of manners... at least you did not tell them how ugly/mean of a person they are... and that says much about you. Takes class to refrain from responding to the things down in the gutter.

April 2014 Exercise

Sunday, April 13, 2014

My first goal is doing some sort of exercise every day. minimum. 10 minutes. Maybe I will do more after some time. But I prefer reaching my goal than failing
April 4 - 20 min running/walking between my ceramic kiln and my house
April 5
April 6- 120 min rowing in 3 person boat. Wonderful!! First tour since winter..
April 7
April 8 - 60 minīs Zumba - Great fun
April 9
April 10 - 13th I am very active. So I have not had time to go online. I have been with my 15 year old nephew. We have walked and walked to 2ndhandstores. And we went rowing in my rubber boat. And then walked in another little and charming town nearby.
Iīd say - 90 minīs at least of being physical active.
April 14 - To day I have been working on putting a com bined workshop and exhibit up - Iīll say at least
- 10 minutes of exercise. But I have to be careful about sweets from the nice people I am working with. I think the best thing I can do tomorrow is bringing some carrots to eat in stead. One lady said - half food - doubl exercise is the clue.
April 15
April 16- 10 min gymnastic for back and stomach. I often do this in the morning and try making this a habit.

    You are rught. It is so much better emotionally to reach or exceed a goal than to fall just short. Just make the goals meaningful.

Fat people and cholesterol

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Even if you eat healthy and exercise regularly, your cholesterol levels are more likely to be elevated if you are overweight.
Being overweight increases your blood cholesterol levels since your body stores the extra calories you eat as triglycerides. When these triglyceride levels are high, HDL (good) cholesterol levels tend to be low, a combination that is associated with an increased risk for heart disease. Losing just 10% of your body weight (25 pounds for someone who weights 250 pounds), can improve your cholesterol levels
I weigh about 94 kg 10% less would be 9.4 kg = 84.8 kg

    I've also got low cholesterol, and I think it's partly due to the fact that I eat a lot of protein. Some medical pro's think this is contrary to what you must do to maintain low cholesterol, but others seem to feel that if you eat a variety of proteins it will help. My father and uncle both have very high cholesterol, and they rely on fish or tofu for protein. I try to vary meat, fish, and legumes regularly,

    I have low cholesterol myself in spite of mt overweight. I believe it is because I eat very little sugar in contrary to my mother and brother who both eat more sugar than I and both have had something with their hearts and cholesterol.
Have luck with your doctor appointment Good for you to loose so much weight.

    This was hard for me to finally realize. I was doing everything else right but still was overweight. And still had high cholesterol. So I got serious about losing weight and have now lost more than 10% of my body weight! I'd still like to lose more but I'm excited about my next doctor appointment. Hopefully all this hard work with payoff with lower cholesterol!

To day until 3pm

Friday, March 28, 2014

To day I felt it would be a good idea to run/walk a tour.
But did a lot of other things in stead.. ate breakfast, washed clothes, washed dishes.
I said - You must not go into Spark People before you have run
It was a fight telephone rang.. with a new pupil and again with a proposal of exhibit in may. I am already exhibiting in april but yes

Than FINALLY I ran... emoticon

    How smart to decide not to spark til you got your exercise! I think I'll have to try that, since my exercise has been pretty lacking. Would you be interested in joining a challenge, too? You seem a bit like me...competitive.
