Amazingly...still positive

Friday, March 07, 2008

Well, I have been trying to make small changes and I amazingly I am still positive about them. Things are going good, I am on:
week 5 of bringing a lunch/healthy snacks to work each day
week 4 of making sure I drink enough water every day (only slipped up a couple days)
week 3 of taking calcium in some form each & every day
week 1 of water aerobics class twice a week

So far, I have managed to start and keep all of these habits w/o too much of a struggle. I always say 'take baby steps', make little changes over time and not try to change everything at once...this time I am trying to really apply my own advice.

My journey is just starting, stay tuned :)

    Really awesome job!!! Keep it up!! It really is about taking small steps. I used to overthink things and try to do everything all at once, and it's too overwhelming and discouraging. For me, it's all about a routine. I don't even have to think about doing healthy things any more. It has become so much part of my daily life. I used to have a hard time getting in all of my water, but now I drink a 20 oz bottle with every meal and snack and before I know it.. I have more than the recommended amount. Crystal light helps a lot!! I love the ones that give you energy and focus. I also like the live active ones. To me, this is all a mind game. Staying positive is the key to all of it. You CAN do this!! Why? Because you're DONE ;)!

Hugs,
Nikki

Time to pick myself up

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Ok, I am trying to get a fresh start here-coming back to spark people after QUITE a long time away. I had a pretty rough past year and I am trying to put that all behind me and focus again. I need to change my lifestyle if I plan on having ANY type of lifestyle in the future!!

I have been reading some of the spark people blog entries for the past couple days and I am so impressed by the drive, determination and strength of the community on here. Kudos to everyone who has worked so hard, now let's see if I can work hard enough to give myself kudos in the future!
