Weekly Challenge Uh...Uh....

Saturday, March 09, 2013

This week is stretching. WOW I am guilty of not including stretching in my workout. My workout I must have a purpose or I am bored. So I walk at my DH favorite place Home Depot, we spend anywhere from 1- 2 hours there and then on to Sam's Club.

I can walk and walk because I have my attention on everyone. Projects projects.

But stretching I don't know. I will just do it!! My plan is to start in the AM and use the SP video.

At first I felt shocked and surprised and I settled in and took a look at the stretching videos, ok I going to do this.

I have decided to post a blog daily just to be accountable.

So with faith and adventure I start this path with joy and peace.

    Yep, it's amazing how much time you can spend walking in big stores. After the Y, I was going to go to both Walmart & Home Depot, but only managed to get in Walmart, because I spent 90 minutes there. The aisle signs in the food sections are completely useless. I spend 15 minutes just looking for dried fruit. I finally asked a woman and she told me they were in the baking aisle. Of course, there's no sign that says "Baking" either but I was able to figure that out pretty fast.

If Walmart (and Home Depot, for that matter) were smart they'd offer a free smart phone app for navigating their individual stores. It's costing them money, because customers avoid going because it's such a time sink.

But, it is good exercise.

Keep after it,

    I am guilty of not stretching after exercising as well, so I am right there with you. I will look forward to your daily blogs on the subject, and I am sure they will help me stay on track. Good luck to both of us!

    Just make sure your muscles are nice and warm before you stretch, so you don't get injured.

#6 New Healthy Habit: Patience, Planning, Sharing

Friday, March 08, 2013

Woo Hoo!!! I made it. I must say I was very good to myself this day. I have no guilt about my day today. I am pleasantly pleased with Janet.

I planned my day. Lots of snow, no bad self talk about myself. I spent time in worship and I shared with my sparkfriends. emoticon

This is a great day.

Have a great weekend all.

#5 New Healthy Habit: A Day Off

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I gave myself permission to have a food day off. The only requirement is to track every thing I eat in SP tracker. No matter how bad the numbers look. I accounted for everything.

Well I did not do to bad. I enjoyed my meals however it was not what I thought it would be nor did I get the satisfaction I imaged I would when I was planning the food choice I decision on.

But that is the way it is. This day just confirmed what I forgot. I get much more satisfaction from eating foods that not only good for my body, they are also peaceful on my emotions and mood.

Thank you all for your kind words of support

    Totally agree. Once your body gets used to the good stuff it lets you know that it doesn't much like the other junk.

4 New Healthy Habit:Easy Ways to Eat 5 Fruits & Veggies Each Day

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

on_articles.asp?id=161


This was my goal for today
Frozen fruit and veggies I picked up blueberries washed them and stored them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. This was a great snack.

I shopped for veggies. I bought spinach, mix veggies,kale I will use these for staples if I do not have fresh.

I know habits take a while to kick in. I am looking forward for this way of eating to become a lifestyle.

Thank you all for the wonderful words of support

    I usually have home made fruit salad for breakfast, that sets me off right, for the day. I can't eat cereal or milk though so that is probably easy for me. Make a huge batch up and keep in the fridge. keeps 3 to 4 days. emoticon

#3 New Healthy Habit:Eating more fruits and veggies

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Hi All,

I did very well today. I carried out with my plan for breakfast. Then I went out to lunch and insisted on having my food measured and I got my request(big tip). emoticon

I had 2 out of three meals with fruit and veggies not bad.

I see planning works. I am going to plan now for tomorrow.

Thank you all my friends for the suggestion they work. emoticon emoticon
