The Color Run 3-2-1 Countdown

Friday, May 16, 2014

I am totally excited that the Color Run is going down this Sunday at the Harbor. I don't think I am in any shape to run the whole thing but, I will move really fast. Most importantly, I will be completing this race with 2 of my best buddies while wearing AWESOME race swag!

I hope everyone has a healthy and active weekend. I sure am going to try my best!

Ms Most Improved!

Changing the conversation

Friday, May 09, 2014

First, I must say I am really happy today. The scale gave me a little wink to let me know I am moving in the right direction. I have a million things to do but, I have a plan of action and I already got my morning walk run out of the way. It is was a little cloudy this morning with that it's gonna rain any minute sky but the temperature was perfectly cool for working up a sweat.

As I was walk/running, a few thoughts came to mind where I had to challenge myself to change the conversation I was having in my head:

I can't believe I can't even run to that next pole - A least you are moving and that's a lot more than you did 3 weeks ago

This time last year, my speed was so much better- Your pace has increased steadily since you started up again

I hate walking when I really want to be a runner again- Every time you stop running for a recovery walk, envision your self running in perfect form.

Challenging myself to speak kindly and positively is a constant struggle but, I get excited when I remember to flip that ol' tired I'm not there yet script into HONEY YOU ARE MOVING AND GROOVING! Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell don't have anything on my fierce stomp up that next hill. You Go Girl is the attitude of the day emoticon

I wish everyone of you Sparklers a healthy and happy Friday!

    Shutting up those nasty little voices in your own head is so important. You need a cheering section in there, and it sounds like your getting it trained!

Scales- and other ways to measure up...

Friday, May 02, 2014

1. I finally decided to just jump on the scale this morning. It started with a real stern. " you ain't the boss of me" look followed by " please don't be awful" and lastly "I don't care what it says."

I'm up. Considering I have spent 8-10 months of eating, drinking and being merry, this should be of no surprise. It wasn't as awful as I thought but nowhere near where I'd like to be. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

2. I had a revelation today. Whenever I am at my healthiest, the food scale sits front and center on the butcher block. If it is on the bookshelf without batteries, call the food police.

3. Water is so much easier to get in if I start as soon as I open my eyes. I have gone to sleep with my water bottle half filled. I grab it before my feet hit the floor in the morning and suck down 2 cups! I reach for my phone and quick track my water. I'm off to a good start. I roll off my bed into a plank and start the affirmations.

4. I tracked all of my food this week- that includes the good, bad and the ugly. I am happy to report it was mostly good. I refuse to berate myself for one little indulgence because I have to walk a path that is realistic long term for me.

5. Last but not least, I have really enjoyed my Spark time. I know I am very fortunate to have crossed paths with such inspirational and knowledgeable people. It truly takes a village....

Until tomorrow, I wish you only the best and healthiest Spark Cheers!

    I love your affirmations and attitude. You are back strong and the scale won't be needing a stern shout out much longer. Welcome back!

    Huh, I have to try looking at my scale sternly! Couldn't hurt! You'll get there, you've got a plan in place, just gotta work it now.

    Great tips. I saw Cameron Diaz on tv downing about 32 oz. of water in one long chug. Apparently she does this first thing after she wakes up. So you are in pretty glamorous company. emoticon
