Walking is the way

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

So here I am on the road. I walked with Mary today and am looking forward to walking with whom ever shows up tomorrow 8 am at the security entrance of Sunrise Mall (inside) or at 11: am at the outside tire parking lot beside Costco by the Walmart on Auburn in Citrus Heights, Ca. I will be walking either time. and both. .

I am so excited. Friday morning we are going to walk from our hotel to Nob Hill which is half a mile from our hotel in San Francisco. I will walk up to Grace Cathedral. It is one steep hill and it just about killed me the day my son graduated from College. One of my goals when starting Spark was to climb that hill without having a heart attack. I am looking for a picture of me that day I was heavier than my starting weight. I know it will be hard but I will bring my walking shoes and take that challenge. I intend to get pictures.

    Climb that hill to Grace Cathedral, just NOT right after all that turkey. . . . .
You can do it. You are in so much better shape than when you started. YOU CAN DO IT.
Hope you find the pictures you want to post.

Looking back on the summer and my determination to succeed, is hard to remember.
I am just eating way to much of the incorrect stuff.
I resolve to increase my vegetables by three and try to get to 10,000 every day.
It really is not that hard. emoticon emoticon

    I've been putting spinach in my fruit smoothies.
I roasted sweet potatoes, zucchini, and red bell peppers the other night.
I make a salad everyday with mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, bell peppers, and sometimes mushrooms, radishes, and other veggies.

Just try to include veggies anyway you can everyday.

It's easy to slip back but we have to get back on track. We have birthdays in Oct. and I took that as a license to eat cake. Too much cake. I am back on track now!

We can do this!

Hold the stuffing.

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I joined a holiday team. It will really be helpful to have a no gain and maybe even loose goals at holiday time. No food sneaking up on me. I joined the team challenges but they were duplications of what I am already doing and iwould have to post the daily results myself.
So do not take offense but I am doing as much as I am able right now and I feel it would be best to just take an extra walk then to spend time posting when I am already counting my exercise and my water and my fruit on the food post... So I am in here for the challenges and the support but .. I would rauther take the ten minutes walking more or doing a Coach Nicole 10 minute ab work out.
We can change how we live holidays!!!

    Good idea to join holiday team to get support. It's definitely hard to avoid getting "stuffed" ourselves...then we feel like turkeys!

If only I could know...

Sunday, October 24, 2010

So if I could know the answer to my questions.
Why is the grand canyon eleven miles wide?
Why is it so much fun to get away from home, yet why do I always look forward to returning?
Why do I set goals that are unrealistic and yet blame myself for not attaining.=?
Why do I quit before I even started?
Read the Spark Book, get some answers.

So I am cooking for the seniors at my parish. I do not need to eat the dessert or the bread and the portions can be much smaller. But my rational is that I deserve it, I am being good.
Well AM I supposed to line for praise and validation at the refrigerator?????
I can change where I go for support.
Even kitty knows how to get her head scratched.

What you really deserve is to be good to yourself and do what is good for you.
