"And we'll be dancing...."

Monday, July 14, 2014

I love to watch people dance and figure skate. I recently checked out the So You Think You Can Dance, Get fit DVD from my local library. I decided to try my hand at the disco dancing portion of the DVD. I found out I can do the parts where they break it down but not so much the fast parts.
We will see if this improves with time. I did enjoy myself while dancing , even when I messed up on the steps. I could beat myself up for missing some of the steps but found myself just getting back in the groove.
Have a fun, happy, and healthy week! :)

    I love that you have found something that you enjoy doing that is also active. Good for you! Chances are, since you enjoy it, it will bring pleasure as well as exercise.

Working on "forgiveness" of myself and others.

Monday, July 07, 2014

I am jumping to day 6 of my Everyday Happy book. It says to "practice forgiveness" and to "think" 'I forgive them' or I forgive myself to keep the "forgiveness" in the present moment. I have learned that it's not about forgetting what other people or I did but letting go of the "negativity" that surrounds the event or situation causing the anger. I still struggle with this as I am sure many people do. I however don't want "negativity" in my life. I want peace and happiness in my life, so I am choosing to focus on the good things in my life and let go of that which is weighing me down figuratively and literally.

    Amen to that.
My past has held me back for so long, I have honestly been tangled in fear, resentment, guilt, negativity and anger spaghetti. It has been a journey to start removing those layers one by one and start getting some of the tangles removed.
I am so glad I have started because each day is better than the last.

All the best on your journey!

Day 1 of Everyday Happy Book.

Sunday, July 06, 2014

So I am rereading parts of the Everyday Happy book by Jenny Hare. It says to be "active and pro active." Some suggestions were to go visit a friend, clean around the house, or "tackle a project" that has been put off. The side note says to "decide what to do and just do it!" Although the book suggests going for a run I decided to get out and go for a walk at a newer park to my area. I ended up walking 1.44 miles and later wanted to relax so I did Qi Gong. By doing these things today I actually felt better .
I will say that today I just wanted to stay in bed and sleep or just lay there. I decided this was not helping me reach my goal of 5,000 steps per a day and was counter productive to my overall health.
Hope everybody had a happy and productive day today!

Consistency is the key for me.

Saturday, March 22, 2014

I am up and down as far as my weight goes. I realized I need to eat healthy all of the time and not just when things are going well. It really makes a big difference when I am stressed if I exercise and eat better. I got sick and hurt . Fell of the bandwagon and am back at it again. I always find myself coming back to Spark People because of all of the great resources and motivation.
I am also back to participating in the 100 days of weight-loss book discussion. I find it really helpful to know that I am not alone in my struggles.
I debated on blogging because I don't really have anything new to say other than I am back on my journey to becoming a stronger, healthier person inside and outside.

100 days of weight loss book discussion.

Monday, January 13, 2014

I am really enjoying the weight loss book discussion in the emotional eaters support group. Peoples answers are helping me think about things differently. In other words I get to see stuff from other people's perspective. I am learning to think about what I am eating and how it will affect my overall health. If anyone would like to join the group we would love to have you. Also, the author Linda Spangle is stopping in to check on us periodically which I find really impressive.
I was getting a head cold and feeling under the weather and not able to exercise like I would like but I felt better today and got right back on the bandwagon.
I am starting to get the big picture and having a lot more aha moments and loving that.
I want to encourage everyone to keep going on their journey no matter how difficult it may be because there is a rainbow at the end of every storm. Thank you all so much for your continued support.

    Would love to join a group, especially relative to a serious problem of mine- but I have a problem working forums. I suppose I could practice. Do you have a link to the group?
