Same Old Same Old

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Do you ever feel like your days are all the same? A couple of times this week I have had that thought. Here's my life;

get up
go to work
go to the gym
eat dinner
watch a movie with hubby or play on the computer
go to bed

repeat

repeat

repeat

repeat

Weekends vary a bit but there is routine to them as well.

Two things occur to me as I write this; 1. that I have the power to break out of my routine in the evenings after work, 2. that routine is not necessarily a bad thing.

I think I may just be in a bit of a slump waiting and hoping for Spring to finally get here in Michigan. Not happening today! Windy, rainy and high about 40.

Ah well tomorrow is a new day and a break in my routine, I am not working since I worked both Saturday and Sunday last weekend. So I guess I will stop whining now.

    Even if your days are feeling repetitive right now they sound like they're something awesome to repeat :)

    We're having the same old routine of winter never ending. I've thought of breaking out of my routine by finally breaking out my exercise DVDs instead of waiting until the weather gets back to normal. It's hard not to whine but it'll make the spring even sweeter when it finally does come.

    Some weeks "DO" feel like...same o same o. ....shake it up a bit...can you go to the gym before work?? My daughter goes at 5:00 a/m and has to be to work at 7:15.

Hope things get more exciting for you.

I am more surprised than anyone!

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Who is determined to get a daily workout in no matter what? Who is the person who isn't always looking for the closest parking space? Who is the person who walked in her living room while watching a movie with her hubby so that she could get her 10,000 steps in today. Who is the person who has worked out more than once a day several times this week? Who is the person who upped her monthly fitness minute goals because she had already reached her initial goal before the 10th of the month. I am more surprised than anyone, to report that it's me!!

I am so grateful to have so much energy this week!

Drinking more!

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Okay, didn't mean to freak you all with my blog title but I did get your attention, didn't I? Well the truth is that I am drinking a LOT more since I started SparkPeople 30 days ago. I just can't seem to get enough refreshing water. It was much more of a chore to get my 8 glasses in 30 days ago. But now most days I am drinking 8-12 glasses pretty easily. In part because I drink more when I work out and I am definitely working out more. In part because I am more aware of EVERYTHING that I need and want to do to be fit and healthy and drinking water is part of that plan. Oh and don't forget that I can earn SparkPoints by drinking 8 glasses of water daily. Bottoms up everyone! emoticon

    I'm amazed how drinking enough water makes the difference in whether I eat or not. I eat a snack sometimes then realize I forgot my water. Doh!

    I notice the difference in the total functioning of my body with how much water I am drinking, it makes a BIG impact on it!

Taking off the blinders

Monday, April 08, 2013

Okay so I admit my naiveté, denial, disbelief about how active I am (or am not) as the case may be.

I have a desk job. I work a lot. Therefore I sit a lot. And yet, somehow in my mind I think of myself as being pretty active throughout the day. My new Fit Bit is proving me wrong on that score! I am becoming a total nerd about that Fit Bit dashboard. I love having the ability to look at my stats at the end of the day and see what the real deal is.

So for today the real deal is that I can clearly see that I need to get up and move more throughout the day at the office. How cool is it to be able to have numbers to back up or refute my assumptions. After all when we know better, we do better! Here's to a better, fitter me!

    emoticon it's amazing what a little FitBit can do isn't it? It's a great motivator, I know.

Thanks for the push!

Sunday, April 07, 2013

I am so happy to be a part of the SparkPeople community. I've been here less than a month but I have wholeheartedly thrown myself into the experience. SparkPeople is so perfect for me in so many ways. I love the competitive gaming nature of the points, trackers and challenges. I love the positive upbeat support and encouragement I see happening between members. I love inspirational and motivational blogs, spark page entries and group posts. I love the informational articles and videos. I love the new things that I am learning and the old things that I am reminded about.

How grateful I am to have stumbled on this site four weeks ago! Suddenly my support network has taken on huge new proportions! emoticon

I agree! I believe this site has a lot to offer to those who participate. When I first joined, I didn't take advantage of all it has to offer - most notably the community and team feature - and I started to feel the site was a time suck. When I came back recently I decided to throw my whole self into it and use it to its full potential and that has made SUCH a difference. I now feel I'm on a journey with a great group of people instead of struggling to row the boat myself - and getting frustrated at my lack of progress. It's pretty darned cool!
