Work, Exercise, Eating Oh MY! Spark points

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Well now I am back to working more than one job and there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day!!!

I find that this makes squeezing in everything a challenge. I will need to keep on eye on the type of eating that I do and try to start new habits that insures that I am getting my exercise in.

I am such a competitive person however that the motivation to earn spark points helps to keep me on track

    Wishing you luck. I'm in a similar situation. It's tough, especially when your jobs don't allow you some kind of regular schedule. I'm sure you'll work it out though, hang in there!

Everyday is a new day! Bootcamp last week

Sunday, January 25, 2009

We are heading into the last week of bootcamp. It has been great to do the videos as I had not done these kind of exercises or used video on my laptop to exercise. I love it when there are new experiences that I can then add to my habits!

I love that this is happening when the weather has made my walks outside either shorter or less frequent than in the good weather.

I will love to see the differences at the end of bootcamp. I am however not one of the ones that will be reporting the amazing weight loss others have reported instead I think my gain will be that I have new tools to work with.

    I just found this videos and did the first boot camp today. I'm going to do each one for two days as today I could tell I was only working at 80% of what I should have been...tomorrow I'm going to push for full!!! I have no idea what the weigh effect will be, but based upon today....I can tell you have to have more tone to have made it to the end. Whoo Hoo way to go!

Bootcamp update

Sunday, January 04, 2009

Okay I making this for the bootcamp begining. I weight 162 pounds I have added my picture from Christmas YUCK. I don't like my picture being taken as it is not who I am on the inside. Without mirrors I think I look pretty good but then when I see a picture I am reminded that I have added a significant amount of weight and I am looking old, old, old. Got my hair cut at the beginning of the challenge. I am determined to make this work! Okay I went through the pictures and this one was the best but I hate that my kitchen cabinets were open. We were putting the dishes away! Oh well that is the other goal this year is to be more organized!!!

    Recent pictures of me knock all the spirit out of me. So I'm not having any pictures taken for now, like you, I forget and think I look better. That's better for my motivation too. Besides when I was thin and younger, some pictures were pretty bad at times too...but I didn't let them define me so why should I now. We can reclaim ourselves and "see" the best we can be in the mirror and the new pictures to come! emoticon

New Year, New Habits: Using my skills from work and applying them to life!

Friday, January 02, 2009

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me,
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed, just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit.

Found this poem, the author is unknown, but I am determined to make some good life choices habits.

I am going to work at like I do my paid work. Setting measureable goals, collecting data and repeating what seems to work until it is 2nd nature.Some of the habits will be exercise, some eating and some staying organized.

I am going to use Sparkpeople to keep the statistics on the habits and those that fall below the expected range will get more concentration. Those that are at 100% for 6 weeks I will consider a habit established!!!!
