Add some variety to spice up your life!

Thursday, June 25, 2009

I'm always looking for new foods to add variety and good nutrients to my diet...yesterday, took a walk through one of the health food stores and eyed sea vegetables. Today I will research a few of the types, look for recipes and pick a day to try one of the many types I came across (wakame, nori, arame, hijiki, dolse)...and definitely will check SP recipes to see if anything has been submitted. I looked interesting and I love trying new things. Hopefully something new I can say emoticonto.

  


Think positive!

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

There really is something to the mind over matter philosophy...keeping in the face of what would otherwise be called failure, e.g. plan to do 3 sets of 6, however, only do 2 sets of 6, is a great lesson in learning to forgive oneself. Is it really so bad to only do 2 sets of 6 as opposed to adjusting your thinking with the start point being 2 sets of 6 and working up to 3 sets of 6. Always remember the goal, and babysteps...the goal is to finish, safely and be proud of yourself...YOU ARE TRYING, that is what is most important.

    I agree. Embracing a positive outlook is what I call mind detoxyfication. Many of us detox our bodies and forget about the mind. A healthy mind and healthy body go hand in hand, and one without the other is UNhealthy.

Thanks for this wonderful reminder.

Rejoice in the things you know are right!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I have been weaving in an out working on a few items in my life, the hardest one I mentioned in my first blog...I came across an old album that helped me with this day. I've put some of the lyrics below so I can review anytime I need this pick-me-up (Rejoice by The Emotions)

"If the things you do are not pleasing you
It's time to take another point of view
You take the things you've learned
oh, that you know are real
and that you feel is your first concern
then sacrifice, and make it right

Rejoice
Rejoice
in the things you know are right!

You know,
Rejoice
makes you feel real good inside.

There may be times, oh, when youre in doubt,
about the way and just how to work it all out
You find the thing you seek, oh, within your reach
your mind conceives it
Your heart will believe
Now that you've sacrificed and you have paid the price
to make a better way in your life today
oooh oooh
Rejoice
you can see the light
Yes, you can
when you rejoice!"


Otherwise, today is a light exercise day and I'm golden in that department...Not much of an appetite, but the day is still young... a lot of mind over matter being done today!

  


Challenge yourself daily!

Monday, June 22, 2009

Be it mentally or physically...challenge yourself...my challenge today is to slowly bring back some of my standing exercises. Too much pampering isn't good for my leg/foot either, it will only strengthen a weakness.


(sorry for the dupe!)
