I have a healthier lifestyle than I thought.

Friday, November 15, 2013

I was recently visiting relatives and had a great time but did not have my normal routine. By the end of 4 or 5 days, I was craving vegetables, outside time, and even exercise. I thought I really didn't like exercising so it really blew my mind when I missed not doing it. Lol emoticon

The reports tell all

Thursday, October 31, 2013

How many times do you say, "I will skip my workout today. It will be fine. I do it most days." I didn't think I was saying it much until I ran the spark people reports. Ouch! That hurt. I saw that what I thought was maybe once a week may really be 2 sometimes 3 skips a week. Life is busy and you think it will be fine. Not true. If you aren't taking good care of yourself, who will. Eventually your body will say it is my turn for your attention and bring you down. So prevent that by running reports and seeing if you really are being truthful with yourself. The reports tell all! emoticon

    I LOVE the data! It really motivates me to do better...and how can you do better if you don't know where you are?

Great eye-opening blog!

Water skiing is a lot like weight-loss. Check it out. lol

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Weight loss is a lot like water skiing. If you do everything right then you are able to get up on the skies. Other times, the water is choppy and very hard to get up even when you are doing everything right. Those are the times you stay in a squatted position longer until all of sudden you are up and flowing. Then you can stand tall.

Then you follow the boat for a while and boredom sets in. So you want to shake things up. You decide to jump the wake and go to smoother water. It is very difficult to ease into it. Best to say "I am going for it!" --Hold your breath and cut right into it with power and boldness.

Then you are rocking a long enjoying the ride. Water is smooth and you feel like you could out-run the boat. Then another boat goes by and you get these large swells. You better bend your knees so you don't loose your balance as they pass under you. Once they pass you are good to go again. Sometimes they knock you down and your skies come completely off. Sometimes you have to swim a ways to even get your skies, but it is worth the swim to have another chance to FLY on water. lol

Other times you are rocking along and you just get tired. That's when you take a break and relax. Then you are ready to go again. Sometimes you aren't ready to try again, but it is getting dark and you don't want to miss the chance to go again because summer is ending. So you throw your ragged body overboard and say, "JUST DO IT! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!" lol

So that is how weight loss is. Have fun skiing emoticon

    I've never been bored while waterskiing. It takes all my attention to stay upright.

Learn from your mistakes

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

When you make mistakes, don't beat yourself up. Instead look to see where you messed up and why. Plan how you will handle it the next time those temptations come to you. Then check to see if you did did not give into the temptation would you have met your daily goals. If you would have then put that in your plan as a reminder. If not then see what other mistakes you made and do the same with them. Be ready with your plan when temptation comes and be proud of yourself that you are learning so much.

    This is something we really need to learn - ONLY purpose for looking back is to LEARN from what we did so we can do better the NEXT time.

  Great advise! I try to see a pattern to why I give in to temptation. Am I buying something that I know is my weakness? Celebrate each little victory!
