Must be in the air.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I noticed alot of blogs today about getting off track and starting over. It must be something in the air because you can add me to that list. I have been in a funk for the past few weeks, not working out or eating like I should.

So today I went back to Spark Stage 1. Time to focus on the small steps I can take every day to give myself the gift of better health. My daily goals for the next two weeks are:

Exercise a minimum of 10 minutes a day
Drink 8 glasses of water
Pack my lunch
Listen to a get up and go song

    You can do it! I know you can. It is so hard to start again. That is why I ended up so heavy, I hate starting again. But here is the good thing: You are not where you started in the first place. You know what to do. You caught it before it got out of control.
You are great! emoticon
You will be successful!

Two Weeks

Friday, March 25, 2011

Two weeks until my daughters due date and my first 5K. It seems so far away in respect to my daughter, but so close for the race.

I don't think my daughter will make it 3 weeks, she is already having contractions and labor is moving along slowly. I am so excited to meet my new granddaughter, being a Grandma is such an amazing experience.

So I will continue to train for my race and wait for both events to take place.

Life is so busy lately, but good busy. I took my husband skiing for the first time Saturday and felt so good when he apologized for every snide comment he has evey made about the sport because he found muscles he didn't know he had. It felt great that he was proud of me for being so good at it.

Our daughter is due in 28 days and we are getting ready. She got her apartment and will move in April 1st so the scramble is on to find everything we need to furnish her new place. We are doing infant care classes on Monday nights and have an 8 hour labor & delivery class Saturday. I know she will have struggles as a single Mom, but I also know what an amazing person she is and what an even more amazing mother she will be.

Still training for a 5K on April 10th and hope my P90X DVDs will be here today. So everyone talk to me about P90X. Did you love it? hate it? want to throw it out the window? I am excited and nervous to start.

    Lots of people love P90X and get great results. I tried it, and it was probably a little too tough for me.

I'm Making Progress

Friday, March 04, 2011

In a huddle today I chose "I'm making progress" and I feel I really am. I have stopped obessing about the number on the scale. I am learning to look at myself at the end of the day and asking myself if I made healthy choices with eating and exercise. If I have, then it is enough for me. If not, then tomorrow I have to wake up and do better.

Will I lose weight with this attitude? I don't know, but I do know I will feel better about myself and quit beating myself down because of what the number on scale says.

    In that case, I think you are making progress! Feeling better about yourself will get you so much farther than losing a few lbs! Keep up the good work! emoticon
