Show the world your sparkle!

Monday, January 26, 2009

You are a masterpiece in progress...A lot of attention is placed on the outer appearance, but the inside is just as important. As I continue to make progress on bringing what the outside more in line with the picture I want it to be, along with finding the right MOVEMENT for alternate exercise days, it's time to go through the organizations I belong to -- my interests have always been so diverse and I have always liked that about me but it's time to make some changes in that area as well. Babysteps at this time of change will be crucial, as with so many things, to stay focused on what is most important to me...

Flexibility in all you do

Saturday, January 24, 2009

New exercise schedule, new caloric intake level, weights have been evaluated...now for the off days and there are off days where time is at a premium on scheduled days and alternate days from my schedule. I started experimenting with yoga, pilates and circuit training and really enjoyed each. Over the next three weeks, I'm going to interject these items in to see where they fit best is the goal...healthy, lean, strong, AND flexible-- what a wonderful combination!

  


The time for change is NOW!

Friday, January 23, 2009

Along with the revision of my exercises and re-evaluating the weights being used, a recent article brought to my attention some of the other measurement tools used to look at health, i.e., BMI, Ht/Wt Chararts, Wasit/Hip Ratio and based on those measurements my original weight goal is correct. I went one step further and reviewed how my calorie range was generated and what would impact that number. So one other change to incorporate into the mix, given the change in my activity level, is a move to 1600-1950 caloric intake versus the original 1200-1550 to see what kind of difference that will make in my overall muscle development. So far it feels good!

  


The best is yet to come!

Thursday, January 22, 2009

The new exercise routine is starting to work...today I was actually sore. When I became active with SP I experienced this soreness and it was great because it showed that I really pushing myself. I reduced the weights used to avoid overexertion because I got sick at one point to where I was using my own body weight only. As I began to feel better, the weights were increased, but I had not yet reached the original weight levels. The first signs of definition was good, but it was slowed due to become sick...Now I think I'm back on the right track. Just have to keep reminding myself to be patient...the best is yet to come! and I CAN DO THIS! emoticon emoticon
