Changed my mind

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

I was done with the day. Overall it was pretty good. Just didn't get to go to the Y to workout emoticon because of the bad roads from our snow yesterday. I was drained from the long travel home and decided it would be another day without exercise. I had settled in and just finished spark coach for the day and thought why not pop in a DVD or do a Spark Video. I just felt need to move so I did. In went the DVD and 30 minutes later I feel great.

I am so glad I changed my mind. emoticon

    Thank you for the spark goodie-it's so great to see you again. Love your smiling face! I've fallen off the age wagon and have gotten older, am forever working at not getting larger!

done with feeling yuck

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Yes an un-healthy lifestyle makes you feel yuck. Jumped in on a whim today because I wanted to feel better physically and emotionally. When I eat healthier, not perfect, but healthier and focus on activity, not just exercise, but being active I just feel better physically. This is motivation to feel better emotionally. I tend to have a better outlook and don't criticize myself.

After day 1 already feel better and got my motivation back. Taking babysteps first eating and then exercise.

goals met : water, vitamins, within calorie range

Only one thought away from getting back on track

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

A great phrase to remember. I heard it on Spark Radio today and this is something I will embed in my memory. There have been times that I gave in to cravings and threw in the towel for the rest of the day. Not any more. Slips will happen so now when they do, I will remember I am one thought away from getting back on track.

Self Love

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Getting a great foundation from Spark Coach lessons on the concept of "self love". I thought I had a healthy balance for myself because I do focused on my needs and take time for myself. At this stage of my life I am now able to do this. I didn't realize that I still am too hard on myself. I always said I am my own worse critic. This, I thought,helped motivate me to achieve success and my goals.

Reflecting on the Spark Coach information from the past couple of days, I have come to the realization why this type of self criticism is counter productive. Positive reinforcement is the way to go and who better to give me the positive reinforcement than myself. In the past I beat myself up and was fortunate to have others build me back up.

Starting today, I am going to make a conscious effort to be my cheerleader. And not just in my healthy lifestyle changes but in all areas of my life.
