12 weeks--time for a reward!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

I've been working towards a new healthy me for 12 weeks. So for my 12-week reward, I bought myself a new lavender colored shirt (down 2 sizes!) so I can go out with my Red Hat Ladies group on Wed to a Garden Party Tea!

My life-style strategies email this weekend was about rewarding myself. So I bought some root packets of some wildflowers for my native wildflower flowerbed and each week, I'll reward myself with a new root to plant! emoticon

    These plants grow from roots instead of seed, so they are little plastic bags with a root in each one of either an Indiana native violet and fern. We live in the woods and need to make sure we don't plant plants that could escape into the woods and take over.

Hope you have a great week!

    Congrats on 12 wonderful weeks of working towards the you that you want to be! I think it is awesome that you purchased a new blouse and it is 2 sizes smaller! Now I'll admit my confusion... what exactly are root packets?

Flare up!

Saturday, August 13, 2011

I've been working really hard to meet a goal and have depleted myself physically so I am having a Fibromyalgia Flare-up day: no energy, pain, brain fog.

I will rest this weekend and eat right (no sugar for short-term energy) and get back at it on Monday and be a bit wiser in listening to my body over trying to achieve a goal. emoticon

schooling and exercise

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

When my son and I finished his schooling today at 3:30, I first sat down and ate my afternoon healthy snack and then started doing what I usually do to unwind and get some ME time--I picked up a book. Then I started to think. I decided to make a better, healthier choice and got up and did my upper body strength training video instead. And I decided I WILL hike our woods this evening to get some cardio today. It's now 4pm and I will now read to unwind. emoticon
