Challenge for Labor Day -37 days to go-Exercise Bog - 30 mains anyone is welcome!!!!!

Monday, August 01, 2011

Good Morning; I have been running around with my head cut off- I lost my pedometer. I found a back up, but not my favorite. Today is the first of August and I am determined to track food and exercise more religiously. I usually start out great and then when the going is good- I forget to write it down. This then gets into forgetting what I put in my mouth and having to sit down and just think. Did I have this or that for lunch? emoticon emoticon emoticon None of us are perfect. You do not need to remember. Write down your food before you eat it. Just get it out of the way, you release it and then you can eat it slowly and hopefully sitting down. I find if I eat it standing up or eating in the car. I do not even taste the food. I heard a person say one time, "You need to savor each bite. Taste each bite. You can not do this in a rush". We are such a hurry up and go society we are missing out on tasting our food. Take the time to enjoy eating good food. Your body needs food as fuel. You would not add water to your gas tank so we need to learn that good quality food is our fuel for a substantial wonderful machine in our body. It will be so much better when given good quality food, exercise. sleep and less stress. This needs to be the goal. You sow what you reap! You put junk into your body you will get junk out. This is something I heard at a diet meeting one time. emoticon emoticon emoticon Your body will emoticon! Have a good day! Get some movement in!! emoticon

    Great, I do 95% of the time sit at the table for a meal, When our son joined the service, we got in a bad habit of eating in front of the television, or wherever, it was kind of neat for awhile, but makes for a bigger mess, we lose the conversation, and as you say we do not even know what we are eating, So for the past 10 years or so, I insist breakfast and dinner at the table, lunch also, if we have one, emoticon I aim for 2 good meals a day, and that is sufficient for both of us, we do the nutrition bars or something when we are hungry. But we eat a late breakfast, and a early dinner, so it works out fine.
37 days to go, I really feel good about this challenge, this time, so I hope it happens soon.

I let go of yesterday. Today is a new day!
Each evening, I release any burdens from the day. Consciously letting go of judgment, resentment or expectation, I release them to be gently dissolved into the night. In the morning as I awake, I begin anew. I connect with God in gratitude. I am alive! I am aware! I am ready!
I see myself and others as one in Spirit. We are one; there is no separation. There is no judgment. There is only the realization that we are each made of the same "stuff" in our unfolding universe.
Today--in this very moment--is where life resides. I let go of yesterday. I do not worry about tomorrow. I enjoy the sweet and loving peace of now.

Good Morning; last day of July. Where has the time gone? DH and I went and saw "Cowboys and Aliens." It was an ok movie - very predicable. It was a nice time with DH. I am getting on treadmill in a little bit to get it out of the way. Noticed my knees are still tender so putting the incline down again. Every one get up and move!! Are you feeling a change in your body yet? I wore a pair of white pants yesterday and I looked good. I still have much to go but my body is changing. Consistency is the key! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Every one have a great day! Be careful of this heat!! Hydrate!! Get up and move!! Go every one!! emoticon emoticon

    I got irritated a while ago, so I hit the sidewalk, heat and all, actually it is not too hot today, but I normally wait, but I figured it would be best to go out and clear my head rather than clear my thoughts out loud, so I did, and I feel much better, and got in 25 minutes that I wont have to worry about when it cools off.
I am having a good day lazy, so far, My DH and I made a kidney bean salad, he chops the vegetables, and I prepare the rest of it, We make a good team, usually emoticon
I can not believe it is August already, but I am feeling good about this 5 pounds and am so glad you are having success.

I am refreshed and renewed in mind, body and spirit.
When I think of my health and the way I approach it, I ask myself if I am doing all I need to do to be healthy, whole and well. If I feel I can do more, I take this opportunity to refresh and perhaps adopt new healthy habits.
I may begin by spending more time in prayer and meditation, visualizing my body as a holy temple filled with divine, renewing life. I may start an exercise regimen that helps me get in tune with my body. I may try new, more healthful ways to prepare my food.
Of the many healthy practices available to me, I follow my inner guidance and find which ones are right for me. I am refreshed and renewed in mind, body and spirit.

Good Morning; I got my exercise in yesterday. I got on the scale and have lost .6 lbs more today. Every little bit helps!!! I just am grateful the scale is moving in the right direction. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I will get my steps in today. I still am not back to the pace I was before my injury to my knees, but I am still exercising. I need to learn that my body needs low impact exercise. Every one says cardio- cardio- this translates to me pounding on my joints. I know now that there is cardio that does not pound the joints. If any one has some suggestions on low impact exercises they do that is easier on joints please post!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Get some exercise in this weekend. Hydrate so you can tolerate the heat!! emoticon emoticon
Phone your congress person to work together and compromise!!

    I am working on my steps, I luckily went out this morning and walked for 25 minutes, that is about the sum-total of my steps, I have to go out when it gets cooler, I spent most of the day riding with my DH, I enjoy the time we spend together, talk more in the car than at home, and he wants me to ride with him.
My peaches are almost gone, just a few left to eat, and my they are so good this year.
That is so fantastic, your weight loss, I think perhaps, I am 1 pound down, but, maybe tomorrow it will be right back up there, so discouraging, I am happy (more or less) with most of my body, I am much firmer, and like I have said, I dont look to wear a bikini, I just want to be fit and healthy, and I think I should be less than 120, 117 was very nice. I still have 39 days,
