Foot Doctor

Friday, July 08, 2011

Must schedule my appointment to see my foot doctor today. I can't just keep exercising on this foot knowing that it feels uncomfortable. So, to keep myself accountable, I'm posting this reminder! :)

Gotta love SP!

Update: I have scheduled my foot doctor appointment for later this month! Woohoo!

Back to Cardio

Thursday, July 07, 2011

After the re-injury of my foot, I cut back on running and my fitness classes, but continued to walk regularly. I am now building back up to my cardio, starting over again with Coach Nicole's Cardio Blast video. It has 6 different 10 cardio workouts. I consider it my old faithful. SP has all the exercise videos needed that no gym membership is mandatory.

After reading Alexa's article, I just had to re-post and quote the paragraph below as a reminder. This article truly blessed me. I'm sure that many of you can relate, just as I can. Thanks Alexa!

If anyone who reads this happens to be having a hard day, just remember that anything that comes too easy isn't worth having. Don't stress if you ate McDonald's three times yesterday, if you ate a whole pack of Oreos just now or if you just ate your weight in Ben & Jerry's last week. Tomorrow really is a new day. That's not just a saying. Life isn't all or nothing. And neither is the weight loss process. You don't have to give up anything that you don't want to. You don't have to starve yourself. You don't have to hate yourself. You just have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep on going.

    emoticonI feel her pain when it comes to emotional eating which takes a great deal of willpower to resist all those tempting empty calories foods. In the past I have always felt guilty for not being strong enough to turn down those yummy foods calling my name at different fast food eateries. Now, I can limit myself to enjoy eating a small portion of those foods. emoticon

    "Ate your weight in Ben & Jerry's." I love it! I've eaten a LOT of ice cream in one sitting before, but never that much, so that makes me feel good about myself. emoticon

Closet Cleaning! What a Joy!

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

It sure felt good to be able to clean out my closet and get rid of clothes that I no longer can fit and don't plan to ever be able to fit again! It was nice to get back into some clothes that I saved for such a time as this. Can you say "answered prayers"! Thank you Lord! And Thank You Spark People!

Daily Dose of Sun

Monday, July 04, 2011

Since my understanding of vitamin D deficiency, I am getting more exercise outdoors. Enjoying the sun and my neighborhood as I get my walk on. My home treadmill and the gym has been robbing me of this pleasure. It's a beautiful walk outdoors. And I have a nice tan as a benefit. :)

Enjoying Life Abundantly!

    I am trying to enjoy the summer sun too, knowing it won't last long but I struggle with the heat and have to be careful not to burn. Still, I love the summer! emoticon
