Starting to get into the Groove of my New Lifestyle

Thursday, September 11, 2014

I am starting to changing old habits since I have been back to SP. It feels good. I know it is a lifetime of working and you never stop. It feels enormous sometimes, like I will never make it to goal. But, I give myself peptalks ALL the time. It seems to be working.

If I think a negative thought, I am remembering just to think another thought. Its just a thought, not neccesarily true.

I know that this body has carried me so far and I need to take honor it better. It does not deserve the undo stress of this extra weight. And let me tell ya, my boday is lketting me know Ineed to change. I am having aches and pains I have never had before. I just keep thinking how good it gonna feel to reach goal, and beyond!!!!!!

I am toying around with the idea of joining a walking club and traing for a 5K, 10K, half and maybe even a whole marathon. I had no idea you could walk them. I alway thought you had to run them. Just not interested in running. Plus hurts my knees.

Even though I've done a 5k before, I like the idea of being able to walk it and become stronger and do more!!!!!

I think I am actually starting not to limit myself as much. To act on a desire instead of just thinking; Aw that would be great and not doing anything about. Plua when I get older I want great stories to tell. And the only way to have great memories is to create them!

Well I will stop rambling and send out Blessinsg To ALL!

Feet Are Not Failing Me Now....

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Feet have been much better. About 5-10 min. into my walk they cramp, then I stretch them, and they are fine. Still little twinges her and there but much better. Now concentrating on getting my time faster to increase the distance walked. I am at 3.3 min in an hour. It's a process, just glad I am able to continue.

    Glad to hear. Progress is progress, especially when it comes to comfort level during our lifestyle changes. I have five blisters right now! They aren't even new shoes! But we just keep going. Sometimes getting stronger biceps means getting stronger wrists first, etc.
This is a big achievement. Well done to stick with it.

Not Giving In

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

My patients keep telling me that getting older aint for sissies. I am starting to believe them, but I refuse to give in. This foot pain is very new to me. I have been heavy since puberty but that never limited my activity.

Got new wonderful shoes.
Got my new mindset.
Getting up at 5am
Walking for an hour.
Feeling accomplished.

With all those things in check. The mind is willing but the body says you are not as young as you used to be. Can't be breaking down now. I AM TOO YOUNG FOR THIS!!!!!!!! my head anyway.

I found some good info on foot stretches. Will do them throughout the day and prior to my walks.

Feet PLEASE don't fail me now!

Blessings to ALL
