Getting The Glow

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Today was Day 2 of my tank top arms challenge and holy pushups.. yea had to do a lot of pushups and let me just say this, I HATE PUSHUPS!! Not to mention that I have to do modified ones.. Someday I hope to be able to do a regular pushup but today isn't that day. My arms are definitely sore tonight. I think that I will probably even feel it tomorrow!! But it's a good sore. Once I get done with the challenge I'll have to post a before and after pic of my muscles

Definitely got my 10 minutes of fitness in today. It ended up getting up to 63 today, so around 10 this morning I took one of the dogs for a walk.. I didn't feel like trying to handle both dogs. Especially with not feeling good I wasn't sure if it would be a good idea to try and manage both dogs. Anyways, we had a very nice walk. It was nice to be able to be outside and smell Autumn! And I was so happy that it didn't rain today.

Not only did I get a walk in, but I did my arm challenge and road my bike for a little bit while waiting for Ron to get home. And then even just while listening to music a little bit ago I decided to dance! Definitely had fun doing that.

Today was also my 3rd day in a row of getting my Glow Getter Award for reaching my goal of 10,000 steps a day! I was so excited. It looks like I started a streak there! Now all I wanna do is make sure I get my 10,000 steps in!!

Today was by far a good day.

Here's to hoping tomorrow is just as good and I feel better! Cheers!! emoticon

TankTop Arms

Monday, October 27, 2014

Long day again today..
I'm free to complain right? I mean, it is a Monday after all.

Woke up this morning and could barely talk... Saying bye and I love you to Ron was something that I can't even call a whisper. Of course after a few hours it got better, only to get worse again around mid afternoon... Right around 3 p.m. I was wishing I could go to bed and not wake up until tomorrow morning.. The real unfortunate part was that I couldn't even think about relaxing because I was at work...

However... even though I was feeling pretty miserable today, I didn't let it get the best of me. I will admit though that I did NOT want to work out tonight. I just wanted to relax and hopefully go to bed early. Well I didn't let myself relax and seeing as I'm still up typing this and it is already 10:37 p.m. I think I can safely say that I did not go to bed early.
The thing that motivated me to get my workout in was knowing that I have a 7 day streak going and I definitely wanted to keep it going! No only did I get my 10+ minutes of activity in, I decided to do a Tank Top Challenge that a friend of mine had made in April. I got Day 1 of 10 completed! My arms are definitely feeling it. But I feel very happy with what I did today even though I was feeling pretty icky. =) And it has me looking forward to tomorrow for Day 2! #SweatingForMyWedding

Sunday Funday

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Today was definitely an awesome day... well, other than the fact that I woke up feeling completely lousy and my throat was killing me and I felt like I got ran over by an undersized semi. Other than all that, it was an awesome day.
Of course it started off with Coffee!! =) And watching some Halloween shows with Madison (Rons daughter). Then of course we watched football. Had to start that early today. 9:30 a.m. to be exact. The Lions were playing in England so it was on earlier than normal and of course Ron wasn't about to miss them play.. Unfortunately for me, they won.. =(
However, after the game is when the fun started. We all went to a little island that we have here in this little city of ours.. It's not very big, it is a little more than a mile all the way around but it is a very nice place to go and enjoy the outdoors. Especially in the Fall! We enjoyed walking around and of course I was taking pictures.

After Madison went back home to her mom, Ron and I went for a walk along Lake Huron and it was very nice. Today was such a nice day. Lots of sunshine and it was in the 50's, couldn't ask for anything better for a late October day!

But the best part of the day came when I was looking at my Spark Streaks and saw the I got 7 days in a row of meeting my 10 mins of activity a day! It doesn't seem like much but after reading about it in the book "The Spark," it meant a lot to me. I felt like I was on top of the world when I seen that and I am still really psyched about it.



It really has motivated me this last week. Like today when we out and walking on the island, after we left, I told Ron, I can't wait to get home and see what my tracker says.. I just hope that we walked for 10 consecutive minutes! And of course when we got home and I saw it, I was ecstatic!

I can definitely say, without a doubt, that it was a good Sunday!

Small Steps

Monday, October 06, 2014

Well today was the first day of my fresh/new start.. again. But I am determined that this time is going to be different. When I first woke up this morning it was because Ron had to get up and get ready for work. After he left though, I decided that I was going to try and get another half hour of sleep in. I woke up 5 minutes before my alarm was to go off to the fresh smell of coffee! That was enough to get me out of bed!! No, I am not addicted. I just love the taste of coffee. I ate myself a nice healthy breakfast consisting of grapefruit, toast and some peanut butter. Oh and of course my coffee. It was a great start to my day.
Last night I had decided that if I was going to start being a healthier person then I was going to start walking to work. It's not even half a mile away so it's not a long walk and only takes a few minutes. Well while eating my breakfast this morning I looked at the forecast and it showed that we were suppose to get rain today. I decided to chance it and walk anyways.. even though it would have been way easier to drive and I had that little voice in my head telling me to drive, I didn't. Small accomplishment but definitely something to be proud about. And boy am I glad that I decided to walk. It was a bit chilly this morning but that was okay. The walk home around 5:30 though was absolutely amazing! It was a nice 56 degrees out and it smelled like Autumn! I just loved it and kept thinking how happy I was that I decided to walk and not drive.
However, my eating was 100% on the mark. If I had to rate it, I would give it an 8 out of 10. Not too bad. Definitely can't complain.
So all in all I am very proud of myself and think that I had a productive day as far as trying to be healthier goes.
The worst part about today was that it just dragged on and never felt like it was going to be even. It's not that it was a bad day, it just went by so slow. I am really looking forward to crawling into my bed and calling it a night.
Tomorrow is a new day. Hopefully I will do just as good with my goals!!

    Great job. It's very hard to do everything perfect and constantly. That's why God gave us two nostrils, they take turns being the dominant one giving the other one a break. LOL Sadly, we only have one body and when it takes a break, it takes a break. The important thing is to find that driving force that makes your fitness a high priority and run with it. Stay focused and keep the faith.
