Doing Better

Thursday, May 24, 2012

My foot is healing. Can walk on it, but there's still a little pain, so I haven't tried my 2 miles yet. I think I'll be ready Monday. Not sure if I'll begin with two miles; will just have to wait and see. I miss the challenge and I miss how good I feel when I can post 40 minutes of cardio.

Disappointed

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I'm disappointed today because I didn't think I could walk on my hurt foot and I took the day off from walking. I tried to bike, but there are so many hills around here that I found myself coasting most of the time. The hills were so difficult to get up I had to walk the bike, so I stopped. I don't know how long to take off. I should for a few days, I think. That depresses me even though I don't like exercising. I need to remember to warm up adequately and stretch before my walks to help avoid more injuries and lost time. Valuable lesson learned at a price. emoticon

    Phyllis gave you some good advice. One thing I might mention is- don't beat yourself up. It doesn't help- just makes things worse. Let yourself mend, begin again, and take the proper preparations. Think of it as a learning experience- a "positive", rather than a negative. Part of getting healthy is learning to see things in a more positive way so this can be part of that. A "double" lesson. :)

    Yep, warm up and cool down stretch and dress appropriately, hydrate, eat before We all know it but tend to take shortcuts. I have paid dearly for my shortcuts, so I can relate to you.
Take off time until your pain is gone, do gentle exercise until then. If you rest properly, you'll heal faster! emoticon

I'm doing terrific

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

In the first 2 weeks at SP, I lost 16 lbs and walked an average of 2 miles per day, 3 days a week. Eating Healthy is easy, as is staying within my calorie limits. It's the exercise that's hard for me. I have to remind myself every day why I'm walking, usually several times before and during exercise. I feel so much better overall. I'm getting stronger. I don't have to stop as often to stretch my back. I'm boosting my metabolism. I'm losing weight. I have tons more energy. I love being outside with nature. I get to see the sun rise each morning. These are some of the reasons I walk. I just thought I needed a reminder.

    It can be so hard to put one foot in front of another again and again, called walking! BUT after we do it, we feel so much better. The rewards are great. emoticon

It can be hard to talk ourselves into that exercise- but then once it's done you always feel so great , strong, and like you really accomplished a goal.

Continued SUCCESS!

Success

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I've lost 16 pounds these first 2 weeks in Sparkpeople and have already dropped 2 jean sizes ahead of my goal for July. I have a long way to go, but I've made a strong start. The key for me is persistence. I want to keep going strong and not fizzle out. One day at a time. emoticon
