V = VARIETY

Saturday, November 21, 2009

V - Variety Shake things up. Routines are helpful, but your body learns and adapts quickly. Try to keep it guessing with new activities and foods to make your body work for you.

This is a little hard for me. I use to adapt very well to change BUT not any more. I like things to b n just stay that way.

So my game plan is to find things that I enjoy bike riding; swimming, skating, tennis & of course my wii. Now that I have my list I m going to try to change my activity on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. Prayerfull I will also find more activities to choose from like playing differnt types of ball with my La.

T = TIME

Thursday, November 19, 2009

T - Time Make time for creative activities. Whether you take up dancing, run around with your kids, or even go out for a daily walk before work or after dinner. Whatever you come up with, try to make time in your busy schedule to do something fun and active.

This is one thing that I've really been focusing on - staying active.
I play tennis (loosely labeled) with 4 yr old La. I'm even buying her skates so that we can roller skate together. Trying to keep up with a 4 yr old can b an activity in itself.

I walk as much as I can. I go food shopping either walking or riding my bike.

My hubby even just bought me a wii & wii fit plus; so that I can even try more activity as the weather starts getting bad.

    I love the "T". It's important that we make TIME to get well and get healthy. I agree that chasing a 4 year old is definitely activity. LOL My grand-daughters are 9,7,4 and my grandson is 5. I deal with the 4 of them daily. Phew! Love ya, Dawn emoticon

O = ORGANIZE

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

O - Organize Before you go to the grocery store organize a meal plan and create a shopping list. Sticking to a plan and list can help you look forward to the next snack or meal and build some excitement in eating

I m doing pretty good with theis one. My daughter is upset now when she visits I only have healthy snacks. I even bag up the snacks into 1 serving bags. EX. Caremel rice cakes 8 in a bag 140 calories.

M = MINDSET

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I recently posted a blog 10 motivation tips, now I m going to break down in 10 different blogs what they mean for me.
M - Mindset Take time to evaluate what's going on in your mind. What triggers your snack attacks? What distracts you from choosing healthy options? Learning what's going on inside can help inspire you to make better, healthier decisions

What goes on in my mind is scary. What triggers my snack attacks is boredom; anger; frustration; and mental meltdowns.

What distracts me from choosing healthy options well it's a matter of where I'm @ cause at times I do snack on healthy stuff

I need to remember to always carry my healthy snacks with me and to remember that just cause I have 1 bad snack doesn't mean that I HAVE TO EAT THE WHOLE BAG.

    I like this blog!!! I have the same pitfalls for eating habits. I am packing portioned out trail mix and soy cakes for snacks. It's so hard to stay on track after a road bump but you are right, just because we make a poor food choice, doesn't mean we should throw the towel in and over indulge even more so!

    I can relate completely. Whenever I'm stressed, angry, or bored, all I want to do is eat.
