No-Go to Yes-Go!

Tuesday, September 02, 2008

If I could rate my motivation from 1 through 10 (with 10 being me scratching at the door like a dog who needs to go outside NOW), I would say today was......... a -5. That's right, NEGATIVE cinco.

But after much crying, whining and drama in my head, I put on my sunblock and gear and pushed myself out the door.

End result?

A PERSONAL RECORD BABY! I - yes me me me oh me - did 6 miles in 1 hour and 12 minutes. Personal best! Sure I was sweatier than those models on the Bally's commercials but you wanna know something? Sweat can look sexy. (It's even sexier if you have trouble disseminating uhh "scents")

And of course at the end I got a huge Coscto-sized runner's high that would make any drug addict reconsider his/her recreation of choice. I'm just sayin.

Hurrah to exercise!

    Way to go, and I can so relate, so often I have to really push myself to exercise and push myself away from the table when I have no desire to!

3 Things I'm Grateful For Today: Sept. 2

Tuesday, September 02, 2008

I originally opened this blog window to bitch and moan and complain but points from the SP article Talk Yourself into Reaching Your Goals resonated in my head. So I changed the blog title from "Sigh" to something I'm going to try to do every day: write three things I'm grateful and appreciative each day!

Today is made for living and dammit I'm gonna live it up.

So 3 things I'm grateful for today:

1) Instead of being "mad" at me for deserting them for a few vacation days, my cats let me know that I am still their mommy.

2) Beautiful weather!

3) A rather tame day thus far after coming back from Labor weekend. :)


Eating Healthy: A Worthy Effort

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Eating healthy has been a natural progress for the last couple of years, but I’m learning about the consequences of it:

1) The US is filled with unhealthy food. I had no idea until I started paying attention to what goes in my mouth from becoming a Veg how our grocery shelves are filled with nothing but “quick” and “hearty” dinners and how much smaller the produce section is in comparison. B*tch, please. You might as well as shoot me up with fat with an IV.

2) Sensitivity to salt. Since quite a bit of food comes salted anyway, I decided some time ago to stop salting my food. Food ended up tasting better and I was less thirsty, but the grilled salmon I had this evening had me waking up at midnight completely and utterly dehydrated. I am now impressed with the amount of salt I used to be able to take in without somewhat adverse effects.

3) It’s a bit inconvenient. I wish there were vending machines that served fruit – the fresh kind, not the kind that’s drowned in syrup. Many restaurants cater to gluttony, not helping your body function like the elite machine it is. (Would you put the cheapest gas in your Ferrari???)

Those are my gripes for today, but of course it doesn’t make eating healthy not worth it. If anything, it just makes me more conscientious of what I eat. And I am worth it!

I really botched this one. I "adjusted" my diet around using RealAge's recommendations but after logging in my food here, NO MAS! I realized that I was actually eating pretty ok before RealAge so I'm going back to that.

Well, SP kind of had me po'd on this one. Turns out I need MORE than my daily 6 mile workout. So I will adjust.

I do wish though that SP included the Couch to 5k plan.
