This past weekend's teaching was VERY enlightening for me! The saying goes, you teach what you need to learn! emoticon I am catching up on all the things I couldn't do for the past 4 days..... including work! LUCY emoticon needs her walk & we are off to it, before Zumba, emoticon emoticon this afternoon!

Keep Sparking! & I will too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

After several weeks of eating perfectally, I over did it last night. I think I know what happened...

Saturday, October 11, 2014

Happy Saturday: emoticon emoticon emoticon

Last night I over ate. It was good food, but over did it by a lot. emoticon I have been trying to release 5#. So I have been REALLY watching every bite & exercising more. Yesterday I cleaned our pool. emoticon I haven't done it lately because of being on my trip. emoticon The temp dropped to 68 emoticon .... I added the solar for a few hours & it got up to 73. emoticon Our pool is 9 feet deep. As I cleaned the shallow end, it felt refreshing. By the time I got to the deep end, I started getting REALLY cold. The temp outside was 89. That may seem high for some of you, but my body is use to about 95. It took me several hours after I scrubbed the algae down, to warm up. (I wish I could figure out how to put it into my green drinks! I buy it from Trader Joes!) Flannel night gown, emoticon robe fuzzy slippers, etc. I KNOW I burned many extra calories, yesterday. 45 minutes of walking with LUCY, 60 minutes of heavy house work, & 2.5 hours in the pool. I came out ravenous! emoticon I KNEW I had to eat so I went for a lovely salad. DH & I had 'date' night more veggies, some pizza & whole grain cookies. TOO much. I have been eating too perfectly. That's where my problem came in. Being extra hungry AND having not consider SP my life style, instead trying to diet.... derails me every time. On my trip I did REALLY great. Very careful. I came home & did great all week, until yesterday. I'm NOT beating myself up, I'm back on track, just needed to say it out loud so I do not go into a patter of extremes. My personality is very extreme at times. I have to catch myself. emoticon emoticon

Thanks for reading I'm back to LUCY, DH, 8 loads of laundry, working for DH business, my taxes, swimming & keeping my world organized. I am so blessed to be living this AMAZING life. NOW, with SP I have the energy to THRIVE!!!! emoticon emoticon

Sparkles to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    One day will not undo your progress. You ARE being smart though in keeping yourself in check and not letting "one day" turn in to more. Good for you for catching it!

    Be kind to yourself! I believe it will all balance out over time if you focus on healthy choices overall.

    Sometimes things have a way of balancing out though .......... As you are spot on ........... and it takes a lot to gain a pound so I bet you bounce right back like a rubber ball! emoticon (Heres' one now--lol)

    I'm glad you know what caused the overeating! It's this kind of evaluation that keeps us accountable next time! Great job on the fitness and good eating the rest of the week! YOU CAN DO THIS!

Traveling helped me remember, who I am, what I want & goals important to me!

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

1 great thing about traveling is coming home! It takes some time recalculating, but I had a fun time, learned a lot about myself & glad to be back on a computer! emoticon

Looks like everyone is doing pretty good, too! Happy HuMp day! emoticon

I made my green drink today! Lot's of pumpkin, yogurt, protein, greens galore! I feel GREAT! Happy Friday, (date night w/DH)

Back into the swing of ZUMBA classes & walking the sweet LUCY, the wondrous Circus Dog! emoticon She hasn't had a walk since I left. (I of course walked MILES of fun!) Today is HER day, it is FABULOUS weather! Autumn has arrived at home & me too! emoticon
