Feeling accomplished

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I got a lot accomplished today. I incorporated my workout into my daily chores. I did all the laundry, which led to climbing 10 flights of stairs. I washed every dish in the house, and wiped the cupboard shelves down. Add vacuuming and you've gotten a total body workout. Tonight, it's more research and planning for my novel. I feel like I accomplished quite a bit today. It's nice to have a clean house. Hopefully, it shows on the scale too!

    That WAS a great workout. I love when we can incorporate housework into our fitness because when you do what you just did, you really do work up a sweat.

Good for you.
All the best in reaching your goals on the scale as well.

Cold but motivated

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

It's really chilly today, so I've been trying to stay inside today. I'm doing all my workouts and having soup and hot cocoa to warm me up. Generally I love this time of year, but today it feels exceptionally cold. I'm not a fan of the cold. Maybe the cooler temperatures will keep me motivated enough to work harder to stay warm!

    Yes, it's that time of year. I try to make winter the time where I really pour it on so I'll look and feel great when summer comes around. Kind of like a butterfly emerging from the cocoon!

Soup is great with the colder temps and you can make SO many healthy versions. Enjoy experimenting!

    Get yourself some cold weather gear. It makes all the difference and your body will thank you later. Hang in there.

Your background photo is beautiful - an inspiration to get out there.

    Working up a good sweat will definitely warm you up ........... Have been having more soup lately with the cooler temps. And as one said, it could be in the initial drop in temps ............ we will have to 'cozy up' ........... :)

    It's getting cold here too & usually I love it, but I'm struggling a bit with it this time around :)

Exercise, soup & hot cocoa sound like the perfect solution to keep yourself warm!

    The first cold wave always feel so much colder! It's because we are so used to the warm weather. As you get used to the cold, it won't seem so cold! emoticon

Back to basics

Monday, October 20, 2014

The beginning of a new week and I'm back on track. Family day was awesome yesterday but now it's time to get back to my journey. I got up and did my workouts, then got some things done around the house. I even found time to go and get my hair cut. (Can't have a new me without a new look!) Cut 7 inches off! Great start to the week! Can't wait to weigh-in on Wednesday! I have a good feeling!

Family day

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Today is going to be all about my family. We have been spending the day together, laughing and just having fun. It was a stressful week for us, with me being sick and my son having an abscess removed, so we decided that, for today, we are making this a day just for us! Tomorrow, it's back to basics and I plan to hit it hard. Enjoy your day today sparkfriends, and enjoy your families!!!

Break time

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I did most of my exercises today, but I have decided to take the rest of the day off. I was up most of the night worrying about my son. He has quite the hole in his leg from where they drained his abscess. He's having difficulty walking around so I'm doing my best to help him out. I lost a pound and a half yesterday because I was too worried and stressed to eat like I normally do and we were at the hospital very late. Today, I'm going to curl up and take a much needed nap and watch some football. emoticon
