Loving Myself Challenge: Day 19/20

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Hey guys!

I feel like my blogs are getting shorter and shorter ;-) It's just that work is very busy and I've been feeling overwhelmed :( Sigh! But... I'm still on this journey and completing my challenge. I have been making it a priority to think of 5 good things I've done each day and give myself Props for it!

Today was a SUPER stressful day. All I wanted to do was come home and SLEEP until tomorrow... but I didn't. (I've been having to make myself do things quite a bit recently... but once I get it done, I feel amazing and glad I did it... so here is my list.

1. Called Verizon and Sprint and addressed some things I needed to. Returned my iPhone due to not being informed about how my plan was going to change and STOOD UP for myself when they tried a billion times to get me to keep it and settle for the worse plan.
2. I again stood up for myself when I was basically told something that was untrue and could be proven on their website AND by my fedex delivery confirmation. SMH. like I said it was frustrating day.
3. Despite all that, I came home and washed my car! It had salt on it from when I went skiing/ the snow we had and I couldn't find a quick drive through car wash. I was tired of seeing a red/white car so I washed it... Now my baby is red again!
4. I wanted to get straight in bed after work, instead I finished my documentation.
5. I cleaned my kitchen and washed clothes. Instead of going to bed :)
6. I worked out
7. I washed my hair so I can be all PURDY tomorrow (pretty- I still can spell LOL)
8. I started Insanity and more intense workouts so I'm VERY sore and rewarded myself with a HOT bath yesterday
9. I'm still working out and wearing my pedometer (walking more on purpose) despite being sore. - I have got to get over this hump. Tired of feeling out of shape.
10. I am still working on my nutrition and I snack on fruits/veggies more often than anything else.
11. I drank 2000+ ml of water (my water bottle has ml for whatever reason)
12. I have been stretching more! I also stand in treepose when I am trying to center myself. Probably looks odd at work, but Oh well! lol

AH. Now I feel a little better.

Later guys, Gotta finish my hair and paint my nails. lol.

Loving Myself Challenge: Day 18

Monday, February 04, 2013

today was a good day!

1. Did an INTENSE workout... Insanity Fit Test... 30 mins of intense interval training
2. I took a long nap. Had a migraine, fought it with sleep
3. I snacked on fruit. :)
4. I went grocery shopping for fruit after work... and
5. I bought myself a HALF DOZEN of roses... Just because.

-tracked my food and within limits too

Now, THAT'S what I call Self-Love! Why wait for someone else to buy you Roses (Although, that is nice too of course.) I still have a big reason to smile... I think they are so pretty!

    You go! Terrific idea.

I have not been doing well with this challenge. The binging is so the opposite of self love.

But I did..

1. Wake to work out this morning
2. Take an extra 1/2 hour work this afternoon
3. Make lunch.
4. Write on SP
5. Meditate

    Awe... roses are so lovely!

My last bundle of roses didn't last very long... but before they completely dies, I popped off all the petals... and OMG... rose petals are even MORE amazing then the rose itself! WOW, they feel like velvet and smell so amazing. I wanted to sprinkle them on my bed and roll around, but resisted the urge! LOL

I have a big smile today too... wonder what's going around?

    A fabulous way to treat yourself! Every woman needs to do that for herself especially if she doesn't have a significant other to buy the flowers for her or there is not a significant other. I think I might just do that for myself this week. Thank you for the great idea.

Loving Myself Challenge: Day 17

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Happy Super Bowl SUNDAY everyone!!!!

I'm going to get my 5 things out of the way EARLY today!

1. I got more than 8 hours of sleep... MUCH needed!
2. I heard an amazing SERMON this morning... Really was much needed food for my soul!
3. I fed my body with a delicious homemade breakfast. Ate reasonable amounts. :)
4. I've been wearing my Fitbit and drinking my water
5. I got 1.5 hours of exercise... Turbo Jam AND Pilates :-)

Bonus- I'm making Buffalo Chicken dip and going to secretly reduce the calories without anyone knowing! Then, I'll have at least ONE healthy-ish thing to eat at the Super Bowl party. PLUS I've planned for this and will record what I eat.

TMI warning: TOM(time of month) is here and I feel bloated, but I'm pushing through and looking forward to my weigh in next week!

Hope you all have an amazing DAY!

    Thanks Fitgirl! You're right can't out exercise a bad diet... But my program gives points for fitness that can be exchanged for food... So be that as it may... I try to get them in :-) and in the meanwhile I am.working on better eating habits!

Loving Myself Challenge: Day 14 ...and 15!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Hey guys... Still pushing :-)

1. walked 15,000 steps
2. drank plenty water
3. Controlled my coffee intake
4. Only ate 1/2 of my FREE burrito ( threw the rest of the tortilla away)
5. Did strength training exercises!


1. Went to dinner and ordered Salmon, broccoli, mashed potatoes. Only ate half!
2. Ate all my dessert (small brownie sundae) counted the cals, logged it, AND enjoyed every bite!
3. Stregth exercises
4. Spent time with a friend after work
5. Drank plenty water.

I am becoming more compassionate towards myself. :-) I actually heard myself say aloud "Sure, I have plenty flaws... just like everyone else. I guess it depends what you are looking for. If you want to find something wrong with me, you'll find it. But, if you want to find something positive... I have many positive traits too! Just depends on what you're looking to find." I've never said that aloud before... but you know what it's TRUE!

I am amazing. YOU are amazing. Do we mess up? Do we offend others sometimes accidentally? SURE! But, I bet if someone were actually trying to see the good in you, they would see PLENTY!

Keep smiling, and love yourself! I'm really learning that there is more good to me than bad. :)

    I love this post! I'm going to think about the "there is more good to me than bad" - it seems so simple and true when you put it that way, but I still second-guess myself sometimes. Glad to hear you're taking care of business :)

Have an awesome weekend! emoticon
