I'm going to take a hike!

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

The weather is getting to be so beautiful and the call for the outside is coming in loud and clear...Time to think, explore and workout at the same time...Can it get better than that!

Let music help direct your mood!

Sunday, May 02, 2010

I get lots done during the week and still I find I'm a weekend warrior (something I'm trying to correct as much as possible). I do a short meditation in the morning and in the evening to center myself, but I thought I'd share musical pieces I play after I get centered in the morning. It so reflects the pace I usually keep during my day...hope you like it!

    Very good! Music is great. I listen to it when I feel upbeat. Even when Iíve had a long hard day, I turn on my music. Itís just what we need to take us away from the world.

Keep moving!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Just in care you're wonder, I'm on break at the moment! emoticon

The morning started as usual. I broke fast with a muffin, fruit and tea. I warmed up and did my strength training. Then I walked 4 miles instead of the usual 5, which I made up on the treadmill because my route was basically on a flat land and I did the last mile on an incline. Then I had breakfast (mashed sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, broccoli and kielbasa) and sorted papers that I need to go through. I was debating if I should move the boxes I have inside my car back inside because I've found some other things I want to add to them, in addition I will need the space soon to bring my daughter back home, and I will do that after I finish up here. And yes, I will also throw in a load or two (maybe three) of wash.

So far I've just been busy with the normal. Then I get to the fun stuff, continuing to designing my new lifestyle which will probably lead to doing some, ugh, grocery shopping but I have to eat. If I time this right, I may be able to improve the shopping experience and grab a friend who needs to go shopping too.

Okay, that's all for now. Onward and upward...have to keep moving!

  


WooHoo the weekend is here!

So much to do and the weekend is always a good time when more of my time can be focused on playing the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle called my life. I'm excited! so much has been learned, and so much more to be discovered. I'm up for making some new discoveries this weekend and it feels good! emoticon

Off to a good start!

Thursday, April 29, 2010

A lot has changed in my life since I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle: when I eat, what I eat, how much I eat, when I exercise, the variety of exercises, how much I exercise, the way I think about food, about my body, my environment.

Last night I was thinking I should be further along, if it wasn't for some illnesses and injuries. I caught myself, however, to realize that maybe these were good things after all. I started off very slowly, as I mentioned in an earlier blog I didn't even start with babysteps, I started out crawling. I spent time learning about the site, reading the articles and trying out exercises. I say trying out because while 2 sets of 2 reps compared to the 2 sets of 12-15 reps recommended hardly ranked, but I was pleased because it was better than not doing anything and I was exploring for those exercises that I felt I would go back to again and again. Basically looking for exercises that my mind, body and spirit seem to come together on without any excuses.

When I became ill/injured, still determined to stick with my plans to redesign my lifestyle, it was then that I realized how much I had learned using the SP tools, participating on threads, reading articles, and practicing what I was being taught. I've been able to maintain my new weight, to mix and match my workouts to fit my schedule., and the consistency I had built up was sticking with me.

Don't underestimate the positive changes you see along the way, try to find out how to replicate it. Beginning can be rough, slip ups will happen, but stay with the process. I've lost 20lbs and I am maintaining, and yes I am working to lose more, but little did I know in the beginning trying a bit of this and a dab of that that I was actually off to a good start. So hang in there! emoticon
