Ok so I have actually got with the program for 8 days now. I have walked my dog 2xday since last Sunday and I walked today on my lunch hour. Last week I decided to just be conscious of movement and eating. If I could park further away? do it. Do I need to get up from my desk at work instead of emailing, walk over and talk to someone. Does someone need something in another building, volunteer to walk it over. Just be looking throughout my day for activity. And it has worked. Just that little shift in my thought process has helped to move me forward. Did I say Yay? I have done the same with eating. Do I need that mickeyD? I think not. Etc. I feel good about this new attitude. I have been trying to take better care of me. I have been diligent on getting my sleep. I have been focusing on what do I need to do to sleep better and taking care of it. I have also been trying to manage my pain better. I am being proactive. I have been taking Ibuprofin before I go to bed this helps me to feel less pain when I wake up. I have been setting my morning up the night before. This has helped me with getting out the door to walk the dog and less chance to avoid it. So far so good. Wish me luck to stay the course. I'm not even thinking about that though. I am just thinking about focusing on finding ways to get more movement and eating right throughout my day everyday. I'm super happy that I have started something ANYTHING once again. Another thing I tell myself that has helped instead of "this will never work or it is going to take you forever so why bother" instead of this I have been saying, you will be surprised at how little it's going to take for you to see BIG results. or I say Don't worry it's going to work this time a little is going to go a long way, just wait and see. It will. A little movement will bring big rewards just wait and see. I know isn't that a big attitude change for me? Anyway, I haven't updated my online nutrition and fitness journals and I only have time to post this quick blog entry. I hope all is well with everyone. Take care, stop in sometime and comment if you like.
