4 weeks 8 weeks 12 weeks

Monday, July 14, 2014

My motivator for this month is based in the title.

It takes 4 weeks before I will see any changes. 8 weeks before close friends and family will notice. And 12 weeks for the rest of the world.

I'm loving my fitness apps. Tonight was a busy night and I was already "done" and just wanted to sit. But I did my 5 minutes. And then I stretched.

I don't have to plan a workout, I just pick the app and let it lead me through what I need to do.

I'm going to do the next 4 weeks one choice at a time.


I Have And App For That - Part 2

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Part one was written sometime in January or February. I was just so excited with my phone and having the SparkPeople and SparkCoach apps, an app to track my groceries. Yadda yadda.

I have a couple of new apps. (just the free version to see if I'll use them.) They are 7 minute workouts. I am thrilled to announce that I used it today.

The reason why I looked for some apps is because I had a 30 day challenge that I was planning on doing. Thought I started, it did not get off the ground (more like I did not get off the couch). Following a piece of paper does not thrill me.

I don't have a DVD player, so home videos aren't an option.

What motivates me is fitness classes. So until I make more time for fitness, SparkPeople videos and this little app seem like the best options.

I am on a good streak of fitness. Not an everyday streak, but I'm getting into a better habit and physical activity is at the front of my mind.


Random acts of fitness

I meant to go to yoga today, but my little guy took longer at bedtime than usual. So I danced instead.

I'm logged in, and I'm still kicking.

    Thank you for the rebounder. I love it.

Yoga feels so wonderful. Maybe another day.

    Sometimes that just one thing you have to do to remind yourself to keep pushing through. Good job logging in! Even small steps can seem big, especially with little ones. (I have one too, so I can relate!)

Only So Much Time In a Day

Thursday, June 26, 2014

I am hitting my workouts (mostly) and making changes in my food plan. My house keeping and weekly/daily chores are getting done. I'm taking time to play with my son and to be a good partner to my husband.

I am thrilled.

I am not getting on SP because I'm finished.

Its only 10 minutes, but I don't wanna (insert whiny kid voice here).

I gave myself some slack this week, but I am going to put in an effort to log in in the days coming up.

My favorite day was Sunday. I found that I would not be going to the gym (oi, still paying for the membership) so I packed my son in his wagon with a snack for him and water for the both of us. I walked 1 km to the pet supply store and picked up 2 40 pound bags of kitty litter. I then dragged him (24 ish pounds) + 80 pounds (kitty litter) back home. Then I ran stairs for laundry, no sauntering for me.



My Favorite Motivators This Week

Friday, June 20, 2014

When I joined SP I joined with the intent of turning things around. I started, I fell, I started again, I fell off again. I attacked head on, but then I fell off AGAIN. This next picture/quote sums up how I feel today.

I have been snacking every night, whether I am hungry or not. Last week I said enough. I eat a good supper, after supper is done - Kitchen is closed. I posted this on my fridge.

This is the challenge I am doing

And this one, I just like. End of story.
