Moving!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Today was spent on the road, meeting old neighbors and finding a new place to live. It was exciting and fulfilling. I didn't make the best choices today, lunch out. However, I made much better choice for dinner. I am so exhausted and must get to bed as 6 am work start time doesn't allow for much sleep! Tomorrow I will be able to get in some more exercise!

My assignment for today from SparkCoach:

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Blog today about the most common excuses that get in the way of your workouts--and plan to counter each excuse to stay on track!

My most common excuse is that I don't want to get out of bed to do a morning workout, which I know works best for me. By afternoon, I am tired and worn out!

My plan to counter this excuse?

1) Start going to bed no later than 10 pm so I will be more apt to get up in the am.
2) I like getting my cardio out of the way right away as it makes me feel great and takes the stress of additional worry about getting it done off my shoulders.
3) Also helps w/ my glucose levels.
4) It will allow me to reduce my medication and therefore save me money!

That's all I have for now!

    Thank you both!

ILOVEDUANE - I was never a morning person but I found that when I worked out right away, I was a lot more consistent and it worked for me. My problem is getting back into it. It is a matter of "how important for me" so I do need to make it a priority.

    Good thoughts. I have the same problem in the morning (hate mornings!). My kids are similar too. School is going to be really hard to get into this year. We've fallen into some bad habits. But then, I think, is it bad habits or just what works best for us? I really do not function well in the morning! It is just who I am and I think forcing something out of me that isn't me is maybe not the way to go. Anyway, I off-roaded on you a bit. Keep it up!

Being chased by the storms....

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

So I finally get up early enough and the weather was cool enough to take a 30 minute walk outside. It looked like rain, but I decided to brave it anyway. I was almost done with my walk, perhaps 5-10 minutes left when the sky boomed and lit up the morning. Looking up, I walked faster and am sure I burned more calories trying to make it home before the sky opened up. I imagine it my higher power encouraging me! At least that is what I choose to believe! emoticon

    Glad you made it home before the storm got too bad. At least you got a good workout, huh? emoticon

    At least you got home before getting soaked but I
think I would have stood outside in the rain, just for
fun. (By the front porch, of course.)

Coincidence?

Monday, August 27, 2012

Coincidence?

This morning I started my beginning page to my new scrapbook journal and this is what I wrote. “If I had a “totem” flower, it would be a rose and right now I am closed tight protecting my self against the outside forces that threaten me. However, in order to experience all that life has to offer, I need to bloom and show myself and the world my true beauty within - only then will the outside match the inside.”

Tonight I finish Sparkcoach and our Woohoo quote is:

“And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin

Coincidence? I think not!

So motivated today!

Monday, August 27, 2012

I really became involved in my scrapbook journal today and was very excited. I am looking forward to putting more ideas into action. Although I suppose I had better be carefAul that I don't overwhelm myself. emoticon.

Today I will work on my daily chart so I don't keep reposting the same thing over and over. I figure only new, exciting or one time deals can be listed here.

Almost done w/ work and then off to the grocery store and then mow my yard!
