2013 Austin's Scooter Rally without a Name

Sunday, September 29, 2013

We had a great time at the rally! We are tuckered out! We rode along side 150 scooter friends! We can't wait for next year!I did great sticking to my plan. I went a little over but nothing that's going to wreak my efforts. I was really active. We had some ups and downs. When we got to Austin my husbands scooter didn't want to start. Saturday morning a scooter friend worked on it and got it running. We went riding and even took in a festival. The Pecan St Festival in Austin is fantastic! They had wine Popsicle! (I still counted the calories)Saturday it started to rain hard! We got soaked. Getting caught in a thunderstorm on a scooter is not that fun. Sunday I won the people's choice award for my Ghostbusters Scooter! AND both hubby and I won some raffles and came home with lots of Vespa Swag. All in All we had a great time.

I feel like I left Disneyland. I'm sunburned, I'm exhausted, I'm still wet from riding the water rides but I couldn't be happier. Now someone get me a low cal churro and take me home.

Daily Community Task:Today blog about 5 great reasons that inspire you to work out

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Daily Community Task:
Today blog about 5 great reasons that inspire you to work out. The next time you're feeling unmotivated, refer back to that list for a spark of inspiration.

6 great reasons that inspire ME to work out:
1) Good Health; I want to be a blessing to others and I can't do that if I'm sick & unhealthy. Exercise helps me stay healthy.
a. I want to beat diabetes
b. I don't want weight loss surgery
c. I need to get down to a healthy weight
d. I don't want to have high blood pressure for the rest of my life
2) Sleep; It helps me sleep better and feel more rested
3) Energy; It gives me energy
4) Mentally; I feel better after a workout no matter how I feel before.
5) Quality of life; I don't want to be stuck at home because I feel sick
6) Stress; It helps keep my stress under control

6 people that inspire me to work out are:
1) God
2) Husband
3) Fur Kids
4) Family
5) Friends
6) Dave Matthews ;)

    I should definitely do a list like that! Thanks for the inspiration!

    That's a great list! Sometimes I don't think much about how much better I feel when I'm treating my body right, but you make an excellent point about not wanting to be sick. When I'm treating myself poorly, that's exactly how I feel... "sick".

Anyway, hope you had a great evening!

Stress Eating

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

HI friends. I've been really stressed out at work and I feel like stress eating. So far I've been doing good by identifying that I'm not hungry just stressed but I want to just eat and eat. Do you have any suggestions to curb stress eating? Thanks in advance for the advice!

    I know how hard it is. Try to pack healthy snacks, like an apple. Sip water, tea, coffee!

    I know it's the same advice you've heard 98372957 times, but if you can fit in even a 5 minute walk, it might help. And if not, just put your hand on your belly, sit back, take a deep breath and try to push your hand out with your breath in your belly. It has kept me from going bat crap on many occasions. Maybe it would help you chill and distract you for a bit to hopefully let the food craving pass.

Stress eating sucks, but I have no doubts you can... and will!... conquer it!

    Sometimes I take a walk outside and that seems to help me.

    I am a repeat offender of stress eating. I find at work, if I only bring my healthy snacks and lunch for the day and nothing else, and no cash, I will not over eat.

  Find other things to distract your mind from eating.
Stay away from the food area/ kitchen.
Exercise or do activities that you really need to do.
If you must eat eat healthy foods so that you have nothing to feel guilty about.

MIA Sparker

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Hi sparkfriends! It's a busy week at work so I won't be able to Spark as much. I'm still sticking to the program and writing everything in but I might not be "seen" as much.

Not only is work busy but I'm gearing up to go out of town this weekend for a scooter rally in Austin, Tx (I reside in San Antonio). I'm excited but abit aprehensive about sticking to my healthy life style.

I have a plan and I've told everyone I'm going with about my fears and so far they are very supportive. Just gotta follow through. So if you don't see as much of Dave and I daily that's why. But I'm still thinking of yall! Have a great week Sparkers! And by all means don't wait for me....keep sparking.
