    I always love goals that include "daily care." For me, that can easily take a back seat but is so important to just "feeling" great.

I am so happy that you remember to keep YOU in the equation.

Well done! And super smart!

    Sounds like some great goals and reasonable as well. I'm almost 50 (6 weeks away) so I understand. Wanted to say Diabetic meds are not a "fail".

Thanks for your encouragement.

    Sounds like a great plan! If you're looking for another breakfast, one of my faves is a whole wheat waffle with 1 tbsp each of peanut butter and honey mixed together. YUMMMMMMM!!!! Keep up the great work and you'll have that diabetes on the run!

CHANGING AGAIN!for the better...

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I admit I am not big on blogging. I'd much rather journal in my personal journal. I am a chart girl cause I like to see results on paper or otherwise. I"ll check them off each day but I will only post how my week went weekly here.

Goals for the year...I may change or add to them:

1. Eat 2 -3 fruits daily. emoticon


2. Eat 3-5 veggies daily. emoticon



3. Strength training 2-3 time a week. emoticon


4. Aerobics 2-3 times a week. emoticon


5. Eat Oatmeal for breakfast a week **I tired daily but the 6 year old inside me started to rebel. Moderation please!! emoticon


6. Daily care/facials pedicures. emoticon



7. Journal weekly this pertains to emotional eating. It helps to write about what is going or not going in. Speaking about it also helps. I found out the hard way bottling things up inside does not go well for me. But, tact can be a factor. What you say can crush or uplift a person. The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity:so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature and it is set on fire of hell. James 3:6. sometimes I have take a breath and step back and pray..... I use to eat when I was angry but that I do not do any more. I found aerobics visualization helps. walking etc. emoticon

Eating good and exercising when I was supposed to went this week. Personal care good but daily facials not so great. For one it snowed here last Monday and it put our small into a tail spin. Snow here is rare and when it does it turns things kinds upside down here for us. Some may laugh but that is how it is here. When it snowed most businesses was closed the only exceptions was Walmart(((they would not close unless the end of time happened.))) LOL! School has been out for a week. So that meant a 10 min shower for me. Not much pampering time. Hopefully they will go back to school Tuesday. But who knows???makeup for them will be this coming Saturday kids may not be happy with this but that's life...

    Thank you for the welcome msg on my page. I like your goals, especially about keeping a journal. I think doing it online is easier for me though. I've never been able to keep one on paper since I was a teen LOL. Good luck! emoticon

    I think it has definitely been a challenging week for all of us who've been in because of the snow. I know the north is used to it, but we sure aren't here in the south! We still have snow a full week later! I'm ready to go back to school for sure. Not sure when our guys will have to make all the days up though. Hopefully schedules will get back to normal for all of us soon. Hang in there! Great goals! emoticon

    You have some great goals there. It is always good to revamp them from time to time. I tried to keep on my goals but they change often.But at least they are all basic and simple changes.
Good luck and God bless!
P.S. I love Walmart and am glad that they don't close! LOL

WHAT GRACE BEEN UP TO???? lol!

Thursday, December 02, 2010

NEW GOALS OF COURSE emoticon. I ALWAYS RETOOL TO TO SEE WHAT WORKS.

1. eat more fruits and veggies 3 to 5 a day.
2. make 1000 fitness minutes for the December.
3. lose 1/2 to 2 pounds.
4. track food week days.
5. In bed by 10:30 on week days.
6. Handle stress by using stress techniques.

I FOUND OUT THAT I EAT OUT STRESS/TIREDNESS ARGGU! emoticon SO HERE IS MY PLAN.

IF POSSIBLE THE DAY OF ERRANDS ETC. HAVE A BALANCED BREAKFAST IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE A GREAT BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE OR SHAKE.

1 SCOOP OF YOUR CHOICE PROTEIN SHAKE
.25 CUP MIXED BERRIES
1/2 CUP SKIM MILK (OPTIONAL)
.25 BANANA
1 TBSP BARLEY GRASS
1 TBSP FLAX SEED OR WHEAT GERM.
1 TBSP CRUSHED ALMONDS (OPTIONAL)

I FIX THIS TO SUIT MY FIGHT WITH DIABETES. BUT YOU ADJUST IT THE WAY YOU LIKE IT. THIS IS MY WAY lol.

IF ON THE ROAD TAKE ALONG NUTS, FRUITS OR CRACKER AND STRING OR SOY PRODUCTS.

IF TIRED REST TAKE MINI NAPS.

STRESSED/KEYED UP
USED DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES--PILATES, AND YOGA IS RELAXING ALSO INVEST IN A SPA DVD, TEA BREAKS. ETC.

I HAVE JUST COMPLETED 2 CROCHETED HATS AND ONE SCARF. THE SECOND ONE I AM WORKING IS FOR MY YOUNGEST SON. FIRST I MADE ONE FOR MY OLDEST SON THEN THE YOUNGER HAD TO HAVE ONE. LOL IT FEELS GOOD TO KNOW THAT YOU CAN CREATE SOMETHING THEN WEAR IT YOURSELF.

I AM STILL ROCKING MY NATURAL HAIR. BUT SINCE TURNING 50 I AM NOTICING MORE GREYS ((((scream))))FOR THE ONES WHO DON'T MIND THEN GOOD FOR YOU. I WILL INVEST IN A HAIR DYE BUT I AM STILL WONDERING IF THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION????OTHER THAN REMAINING WITH THE GREYS' WHICH IS NOT A OPTION.

UPDATE ON MY OWN CHALLENGE...

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

CONTINUE MY FITNESS WORKOUT I STARTED THE END OF AUGUST. GOAL OF 500-1000 FITNESS MINUTES FOR SEPTEMBER. GOING ONWARD WITH THIS. I AM SEARCHING FOR A NEWBIES STRENGTHENING TEAM. I AM READING UP ON BODY SCULPTING. AND MAKING OM OWN FUTURE WORKOUTS. BY NO MEANS AM I ENTERING ANY COMPETION. I RAN ACROSS A FELLOW SPARK WHO SUGGESTED READING SCULPLING HER BODY PERFECT. LOL NO I DO NOT EXPECT PERFECTION. JUST A TIPS.

POUNDS I'D LIKE TO LOSE 2-5 POUNDS. I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS. PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION. STILL WORKING TOWARD. WAS DOWN LAST TWO POUNDS WE WILL SEE......THIS WEEK.

I'D LOVE TRYING REBOUNDING..STILL IN THE WORKS TAX TIME...

EMOTIONAL EATING HAS NOT BEEN WORKING FOR A LONG TIME....DUHHH! SO I HAVE TO CONCENTRATE ON USING BY BECK DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES. I HAVE THEM IN PLACE AND POSTED. NOW I HAVE TO USE THEM. STARTING THE FALL MONTHS I CAN START BACK SOME OF MY CROCHET PROJECTS. (IT HAS BEEN TOO HOT TO DO THEM)). JOURNAL MORE. USE MY DEVOTIONAL TIME. DON'T FORGET TO KEEP MY PAMPER APPOINTMENTS WITH MYSELF. AS A MOM I SLIP ON CARING FOR ME....NO DOING THAT ANY. I RAN ACROSS NEGATIVE THINKING INFO HERE ON SPARK. WE ALL HAVE THOUGHTS THAT COME OUR WAY...OUT OF NO WHERE. A CHRISTAIN GURU CALL THEM STINKING THINKING. WORKING ON THAT AND IT MAY TAKE A LIFETIME TO OVER COME. CHRIST IS MY STRENGTH WITH THIS. I CAN NOT DO THIS ALONE.

EATING COULD ALWAYS BE IMPROVED. THE INFO GIRL I AM I HAVE COME ACROSS SOME SUGGESTED FOODS TO TRY WITH MY MEALS FOR SUCCESS. GOING FORWARD.

    It is so refreshing to see someone speak so much about their faith. I too am a Christian and leaning on the Lord to carry me through this life the way He wants me to. I am nothing without Him.

I see you crochet also. And I too wait for cooler weather to crochet because I am so hot natured. I can't stand for the yarn to lay across my arms in the hot weather. Sometimes I think I am allergic to some of the dyes in the yarn, because sometimes my arms break out in a rash.

Anyway, keep on keeping on and I will do the same. God bless. I am adding you as a friend. emoticon

    Great! You have a great plan. You have to have a plan and follow it. Tweak it if you need too. You will make much progress because you are focused and working on the total you. God is with you and with Him You are already a Victor. God bless you and let me tell you...rebounding is GREAT!

    emoticonKill the ANTs (automatic negative thoughts, from the guy who wrote Change your brain, change your life or something like that :)

Grace, I struggle in these same areas, and have to remind myself darn near daily to actually rebuke the negative thought and replace it with the positve thought, which is actually usually the truth, too ;)

btw, it's nice to see friends, like you, who remain here trying. so many come & go too soon... it encourages me not to quit...
