Working to accomplish this!

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

"Whatever may seem to be beyond your reach begins to draw closer the moment you begin to do the work. Instead of complaining that you donít know what to do, just do what you can and make the commitment to learn more each step of the way." Ralph Marston

I feel great about getting my exercise in and developing some new habits. I know I need to get up earlier and earlier to get all I want done. I need to relax and understand that things may not go as I plan and that it is okay.

    Days are getting shorter, darker later in the am and earlier in the pm. I'm going to have to buy a big head light to keep going the way I have been.

Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Taking the Sparkguy's challenge!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I so appreciated the Sparkguy's blog in which he speaks about his difficult year and how he needed to find a different way to get his exercise in. His mother was in the hospital and he realized that he was spending a great deal of time there so he decided to get his exercise in from the parking lot to the hospital room.

This gave me some needed perspective.

Life is crazy and we don't have control of so many things. I can however look at my situation and work to make time or space to insure that I am eating correctly and exercising.

Spark is an amazing place I am so glad I have found it. I feel that each day it gives me information and tools that help me improve myself.

Fell down need to get myself back on track

Saturday, July 26, 2014

"Punishing yourself for your mistakes wonít erase them or move you forward. Being angry and disappointed at yourself for a missed opportunity or a wasted day wonít achieve anything positive." Ralph Marston

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
-- Rumi

I had my visit with the nutritionist or should I say my confessor. I know that I got distracted and did not do well with coordinating exercise and nutrition. I went from the nutritionist to Trader Joe's and got my healthy food. I cooked dinner last night.

One hint that my nutritionist gave me was to have a salad before dinner or to have the vegetables. I find that dinner is the meal that i eat the most.

Today is my sister's birthday. My mom says that she is going through a different round of chemo and that the radiation decreased the tumors. I am so grateful. The below picture reminded me of a prayer.

So I will start today anew and concentrate on doing better.

Here is my song for today

    It sounds like good advice from the nutritionist. Salad and vegetables first sounds good to me.

    You can do it Patricia! I always eat my veggies first for my meals simply because I hate hot veggies getting cold and I love my salads.
