Time Zones

Saturday, September 28, 2013

The only problem I have with SparkPeople is it works off one time zone. I often don't finish my entries until after 9pm--which then shows up on the next day since I am 3 hours behind wherever SP originates. Other than that, I am so glad to be back. It feels good to be doing something for myself. I'm worth it. If I keep telling myself that and keep moving forward I will eventually believe and get where I want to be. I know I can do it.

    You can do it and in your own time zone. Go to the start page and set your preferences to show your time zone.

  I live on East coast and I have not had a problem. If I remember right, I had to set my time zone when I first joined.

Two steps forward, one step back

Saturday, September 28, 2013

I've been doing well keeping my focus on my goals. The last couple of days I had a bit of a sore throat and haven't felt that well. I was more active yesterday so gave myself today off. I think I needed the rest. I will get back on track tomorrow with tracking, measuring and exercising. Since the weather has turned to yuck, it will be very easy to work up a sweat indoors. My free trial for SparkCoach is about up--it seems like a useful tool so I'm sad it isn't free forever. There is plenty of other information and support that is free. Thank you SparkPeople! Tomorrow is another day and I will do the right things for ME.

Time Waster

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Spark coach assignment--well, I know that time spent on Facebook and in front of the TV are time wasters. Once I am at work--my time is generally not my own but I will admit to taking a long lunch break when I could spend part of that time walking. Otherwise I am very productive at work and very rarely idle. I could do some squats or something when I am on conference calls--put the phone on speaker, hit the mute button and lunge or squat or do other quick movement exercises. I could limit the number of times I access email because time is wasted while re-reading --and probably should streamline my electronic filing system because I have wasted a lot of time looking for a particular email that I need. Well, would you look at that. I found quite a few opportunities to reduce wasted time. I use Facebook to destress so I'm not going to give that up--but will limit my time. And no evening session without having done my physical activity for the day. Will read email no more than 3 times a day--when I get to work, right after lunch and maybe at the end of the day. And I will clean up my files and get them more organized.

Go figure

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Today on my way home I was actually looking forward to getting on the treadmill for a quick walk before dinner. As soon as I started my walk I realized it felt GOOD to be walking and I really savored and enjoyed that feeling.

I made the right choice

Monday, September 23, 2013

Yesterday, I made a goal to take a walk at work today--to go to the exercise room before going to my car, even if it was only for a 10-minute walk. Or, to take a walk at some point during the day. I almost never work less than 9 hours a day and today was no exception. Circumstances conspired against me--my first day back from vacation with lots of catching up to do, two sick calls so I got to do some patient care but that put me further behind on my management duties, lots of issues to deal with so when it came time to leave....like a cow to the barn I headed to my car and home. Once home, hubby made me dinner and I settled into my chair to watch Monday Night football. I logged into SparkCoach and-uh oh-accountability time--realized I hadn't followed through on my plan for today. So, at half-time, I got on the treadmill and even though I rationalized that I did good yesterday so could take today off, committed to walking at least 10 minutes. Once I got going and was feeling pretty good at 8 minutes, figured I should do at least 15 but then I visualized where I want to be and decided to do at least as much as yesterday--which I did--and I shaved 10 seconds off my mile time. It is SOOOO easy to talk myself out of doing the right thing but the SparkCoach motivation gave me the little push I needed to make the right choice. Good for me!
