You want me to do what? Girl you cray cray!

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Sorry to yell but I'm on a high. I got up early on a Saturday to meet my BFF at the gym. (Amazing, I never get up early on Saturdays) My BFF inspires me. She just joined the same gym and my workouts have been rejuvenated. It's Wonderful!
I have 2 NSVs to report as a consequence of this early morning workout:
1) I only had 2 beers last night cause I knew I had to wake up early. As a result I narrowly stayed within my fitbit AND SparkPeople calorie ranges.
2) I fracking woke up at 8 AM to fracking workout....Frack! Something I would have never done you don't understand.....I am anti morning person. I am anti people before 9AM. But I did it and I feel AWESOME! So great in fact we might make it a weekly thing.
So Friends my message today is that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. You CAN change! It doesn't happen over night but it CAN and WILL happen! DON'T GIVE UP! Do get out of your comfort zone! It's nice beyond those boundaries. My comfort zone Saturday mornings was in my bed but I broke free of the sheets. THANK YOU EUNICE FOR THAT PUSH! YOU ROCK BABE!

    Yay NSVs! Those are the best! Getting out of bed at that hour on a Saturday must have been brutal, so two big thumbs up for doing it! And two more for talking about making it a weekly thing!

I hope the rest of your day has continued on as well as it started!

    I was actually just reading a book that talked about how important it is to control stress. Looks like you're one step ahead! I need to practice some of those solutions instead of sedating myself when I get too stressed out. Note to self...

Hope you're having a good Friday evening!

Walk of Shame

Thursday, September 19, 2013

My blog title is the reason I avoid buffets and Pot Lucks now.
I don't want to do the walk of shame leaving the restaurant or work place.
I want to do the walk of emoticon
I want to Dance the Dance of Victory emoticon
I want to do the shimmy of sucess emoticon

Let's avoid doing the walk of shame today.
When you feel like falling off the wagon (and it's unplanned), think ahead.
Do you really want to do the walk of shame?
Or do you want to walk with your head held high?

And should you want to indulge, that's ok to. Just plan ahead.
"Make it right, Be Prepared" and if you should fall "Take that walk with pride!"
-Walk of Shame by Jimmy Fallon

From this day forth there will be No More Walks of Shame!!!!!!
No more food guilt!!!!!
There will only be planned walks of awesome!!!!!

    Great blog !!

So far, this month, I have been able to dance the dance of victory. emoticon

BUT, going to the Big E in Massachusetts on Monday, and don't think I'll be staying within my calorie range. I want to have fun, and I know there will be lots of food there. At least, there will be lots and lots of walking too.

    My work has pizza every other Thursday for our sales meetings. I normally load up on pizza but last night I decided to pack my lunch for today. Banana, green tea and little omelets for breakfast, tuna for lunch. I will allow myself to have ONE piece of pizza. That's it.

Daily Community Task: Biggest Accomplishment Today

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

My biggest accomplishment so far is walking on my breaks even though I am feeling run down. So far I have 6674 steps in out of 10,000. emoticon

I am going to meet a friend at the gym after work. I'll go to the gym with or without mojo today because I've been trying to get this friend to go workout with me for years. emoticon

emoticonI got caught in a downpour yesterday walking from my office to my car. It was heavy rain. It felt like a water hose was following me. I ran to my car but I was completely soaked down to my undies. My hair was dripping. I had met my brother after work. Thank goodness I had a pair of dry gym clothes in my trunk to change into. It's a real luxury to be able to hang out with my brother because of our schedules. If it had been anyone else id just have gone home. Anyways even with the change of clothes my undies were still soaked along with my socks and shoes. We hung out, went to dinner and then watched the movie Point Break with Riff Trax (Mystery Science Theatre Guys) I think staying in my wet clothes and shoes too long got me sick. emoticon

Tomorrow I have scheduled a rest day. emoticon

emoticon How's everyone doing? Did anyone get rained on as well? emoticon

    Great job getting in all those steps, even feeling kinda yucky!

I got caught in a downpour like that once at a carnival. It SUCKED. You're a champ for going out to dinner in your wet undies. I fled for home as quick as I could. Sounds like the time with your bro was worth it, though!

    Great accomplishment on those steps, but YUCK to getting all wet. I don't know how you stayed in anything wet, I couldn't have done it (especially undies). emoticon

It's nice that you were able to have some time with your brother. Families are so important.

Have a nice, restful evening.

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. Thomas A. Edison

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

emoticon I've been thinking about all the baby steps it's taking to get to where I am and where I want to go. All the ways I've failed and succeeded. A blog I visited today inspired me to write this.

What are some of the baby steps you take every day to contribute to your new healthy life style?

Here are my daily baby steps:
I drink 8 glasses of water a day
I make sure to walk on all my breaks at work
I carry my gym bag in the trunk of my car just in case
I update a music playlist of get going music
I make conscious decisions about what I put into my body
I try to be active for at least 10 minutes a day

emoticon What are some of the baby steps you take every day to succeed emoticon

emoticon And now My Daily Dave Matthews emoticon

Oh yeah my back is feeling much better. I must practice proper form when doing Burpees. My mom rubbed Icy Hot (I love me mum emoticon ) on me and I'm feeling much bettter. Thanks for the concern!

    love your baby steps, and this is what I go for almost exactly, my gym bag and downloaded music, is not on mine, but I also claim the rest of them, as well as brush teeth early in the evening, less chance to grab a snack, emoticon

    You have a pretty awesome collection of baby steps, and they seem to be working pretty well for you!

Icy Hot is the best stuff ever. When I hurt my back so bad last week or whenever that was, dh put an Icy Hot patch on me, and I was all better. I'd do a commercial for them! lol

Hope you've had a great day!
