Contract With Myself

Friday, August 08, 2008

I, PeggyO, hereby agree and commit to take the following steps to improve my accountability to myself and increase my chances for weight loss success: .
1. I choose to be in charge of my own decisions and behavior. If I think that getting in all that exercise just takes too long to do I will just say “get over it”.
2. I will not let one small slip-up keep me from achieving my goals
3. I will continue to fill in my food tracker by noon so that I am sure to get everything in that I need.
4. I will share my weight with my friends and family
5. I will reward myself with appropriate rewards
6. I will get up from the computer and move around.


Weight Training

Thursday, August 07, 2008

Mary of "Crochet the Pounds Away" is leading us in a challenge and she has me doing exercise that I just passed over before.
Now that I am doing them I think that I will continue. I never really did any strength training. My husband does it every other day so I think that I might just join him. It took me years to join him in riding the stationary bike and now I really enjoy it.
I was the one that got us walking 5 days a week and we do it even when we are on vacation. I think that SP really has had a great influence on my life.

Tuesday's Weigh in Day

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I kind of like that Tuesday is weigh in day because in case you are out on the week end when you can't control your food as well (like being invited out to eat at someones house) this gives you an extra day.
I have started walking more and more and even though it isn't counted as cardio I am moving a lot more than I ever did.
I am enjoying doing the biceps and triceps too.

That is great that you are moving a lot more. I also walk a lot but I don't add it in because I have to walk a bit slower since my kids can't power walk with me. However we get some miles on us. I am really happy we are team mates. Keep up the great work and have a great day!

Sundays are Different

Sunday, July 20, 2008

I always thought that Sundays were too quiet. After Church you come home, eat your rolls and read the paper. The day goes slowly by.
We stopped getting the Sunday paper today because it got so bad. Just snippets of stories.
The day was also different because we went to my husbands concert. He plays trumpet in a community band.
It made the day go by faster.

    As I grow older I am learning to enjoy that one day when all is quiet and slow. My week just flies on by it is all a blur sometimes. I have stopped reading the newspapers and watching the news because it is just too depressing.

Take care~

    I like quiet Sundays. We still get the paper, but we use it for litter for my rabbit Fiorella. That's pretty much all it's good for! But it's still a day to relax and spend with my husband and rabbit and just hang out together and go nowhere and account to no-one. I do miss the Sunday pastries emoticon

  That sounds really great. Sometimes Sundays drag around here, too.

A Trouble Spot

Saturday, July 19, 2008

I think that one of the things that I have trouble with is when I am doing cardio no one ever mentioned how slow or fast you are supposed to count your ten seconds but I think that I am counting much too fast.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
