Stage fright returns...

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I had to give a short report at work yesterday and got pretty nervous. I was told it was very good and interesting but my tongue got tangled on some of my words but I managed to get through it.... not my favorite thing to do, however. emoticon

    Good for you. It's not easy to speak in front of a group.

    BUT YOU DID IT! Fantastic, my tongue gets tied once in a while but I just work it into my presentation. Everyone understands the feeling, I believe they are lying if they said otherwise. The politicians have teleprompters, we don't. emoticon

  Good for you. It does get easier and less intimidating. I happen to enjoy public speaking... nerves are less troublesome if I know I am well prepared.

    They tell me the more often you do it, it gets easier. I'll pass on the opportunity. I work better in the back of the crowd LOL! I'm sure you did fine.
Have a wonderful evening and thanks for sharing! emoticon

    It can be intimidating to speak before a group. Sounds like you did well. Congrats!!! I used to have to speak before large groups of drs when I was working and finally found a comfort zone by just looking a bit over their heads and scanning the room as I talked. Now a days when my tongue gets tangled its with my dentures and that is really a problem. lol

Leaving soon, short blog

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Just a quick blog. Small breakfast was good yesterday, but had a pretty big one this morning (about 500 calories). I have to get back to carrying around a notebook to jot down what I am eating as I go and then transfer to computer. Going swimming after work to get out the kinks.

    I understand about the need to post short blogs. There is nothing wrong with a big breakfast as you can balance out the calories over the rest of the day. That boost in the morning will keep you going strong for most of the day.

Enthusiasm....

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

I could use some. I am feeling inspired to exercise more, now I just need to be inspired to reduce my calorie intake so the scale will move...(down)....

Started today with 1/2 cup of Special K, 1/2 cup of soy milk, 1 cup of skim milk.

I noticed lately my breakfasts have been huge....500 calories and more especially on weekends. I always think I will eat a small lunch and dinner to make up for it but it doesn't happen.

If this small breakfast doesn't hold me over to lunch I have fresh pineapple, yogurt and cucmber in my bag to tide me over.

    Sound like you have the meals well planned. You can't ask for much more.

    Sounds like a good plan. I know some people say breakfast should be your biggest meal of the day but I find I have to save those calories for later myself.

It's true exercsing PRODUCES energy!!!

Monday, March 22, 2010

I read on Spark People yesterday that some people's depression can be improved just with exercise and I believe it. The amazing thing is that the results are almost instantaneous!!!!! I feel so much better today than I have for the past week. I know exercising is the best thing I can do for myself for so many reasons. It is a stress reliever and I know it produces endorphins. I do tend to over-do whenever I discover something that feels good but I don't think there is much of a chance of that since I have to work 40 hours a week and I have plenty of Sparking to do. (I think about an hour a day of exercise is the max I could manage without having major aches and pains.)

I did 72 minutes yesterday but about half of that was walking at a slow speed of about 2 MPH. (I used the new map a route on Spark people and discovered around my block is just under 1/2 mile.) For now moving around the block at any speed is an improvement over donig nothing. (I am still working on adjusting my knee brace and the second time around the block I used a cane to help my balance and increase my speed.) Today I will spend an hour in the therapy pool after work.

    emoticon That's great. Moving is a lot better than not and a half mile at a time is better than a short walk to the mailbox. emoticon

    Way to go Teddy! Evey step counts. It is not how fast of slow, but that you are moving.
It is amazing how exercise makes us feel so much better mentally.
I don't know why I make excuses sometimes because I know I will feel better if I just get up off the couch and do something.

Okay...I will do good today...

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Just gotta do it. Yesterday I had plans of exercising, walking, swimming, etc. and just didn't do it. Today I have to just do it.

I always feel better the next day (unless I over do it)....and if I am inactive too many days in a row I pay for it.

Here's to NO EXCUSES.

#1 excuse: I'm too tired....

Debunked by realizing exercising actually gives me energy.

Excuses for exercising:
#1> I will feel better.....

Need I say more? emoticon

    I did it. I walked around the block twice after I recumbent biked and did exercises in the whirlpool earlier today. I exercised a total of 72 minutes today. Hurray! I feel so wide awake, I might do another mile on the treadmill before bedtime. emoticon
