My Most Common Excuse

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

My most common excuse for not exercising is not having the time. But now that I have my fitbit, it motivates me to keep moving until until I reach my daily goal.

    Great. that is how I am with my pedometer. If I am not at 8000 steps by 3:00 I go outside and take a 15-30 minute walk. Great to have these tools.

health to me means...

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Health to me means avoiding illnesses that come from poor eating habits. Being able to wear normal clothes. Being able to do normal movements with my body.

when it comes to exercise..

Saturday, August 02, 2014

When it comes to exercise, I am really good at getting the walking in, but not good at stretching or strength training. I just dont take time to do them.

  


Conversationalist

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Today's visualization in Spark Coach asked me to visualize having a care free attitude toward food at a party or event when temptation is there is over eat in big way. Visualize myself having control over food and then focusing on people instead of food. As I was thinking about this, it dawned on me that the reason this is hard to do is because I feel awkward at conversing with people; afraid I will mix my words up (which I frequently do) and say stupid stuff! Food helps to passing the awkward moments. You know, stuff my mouth so I don't have to speak as much. lol. So visualizing control over food is not the issue here. Visualizing the ability to hold meaningful conversation with those around me and doing it successfully is as important as control over the the food. So, I looked up how to be a better conversationalist and found the following link. Some good pointers on conversing with others. I hope to practice this at my daughter's baby shower next month. 4 weeks to prepare!
Here's the link from Toastmasters http://www.toastmasters.org/ToastmastersMa

    Thank you for the link to Toastmasters. They held a seminar at the insurance company where I worked for 17 years. I was truly impressed and learned so much. This is probably the best organization for learning to speak and converse publicly and privately. I appreciate your posting the link. Can't go wrong there, that is for sure. Have a great rest of the day. God bless. Judy

Gratitude

Saturday, May 04, 2013

The ol' Attitude of Gratitude! Today in Spark Coach Spark Guy encourages me to write down three things I can be proud of or grateful for.

This comes at a good time for me. I was just thinking about how hard it is to stay consistent! Man, it is hard! However. . . I have much to be grateful for. Not sure I feel like I can be proud of these things, because they are blessings from God, but none the less, I am jotting them down here.

1. The beautiful weather and all the spring flowers. Oh, it is God's reminder of is love for us. And to think that this beauty is only a taste of what His new Heaven and earth will be one day!

2. The changes in my son. He is growing and maturing and I am TRULY grateful for that.

3. That I have the freedom to do, to go, to be what and where I want. I am so grateful.
