Family Day

Monday, February 15, 2010

It's a holiday Monday here in Alberta, Canada. Family Day is the official name of this holiday. It's a holiday that has been declared by our Provincial Government because there is not a National holiday during the month of February. Works for me!

Seeing as the Olympics are on, yesterday I challenged myself to exercising while watching TV. I set up the Wii and did a total of 3 hours of Free Step while watching the men's luge, men's and women's moguals and ski jumping. Not only did I feel great (but exhausted) after all that free stepping...but Canada got a gold, silver and bronze medal yesterday! Go Canada Go!
Today, because Garry is not home due to having a workshop to attend, and I have the day off work. I am going to challenge myself once again to doing free step while watching TV. I figure this opportunity does not present itself that often. I'm not a big TV watcher, except for while the Olympics is why not make it really worth my time!

My positives:
Great calories burning opportunities.
Have a Wii, that allows me to enjoy exercising.
The opportunity to watch the sports that interest me.
My girls...and the lovely flowers they brought me yesterday.
Seeing the blessings that come my way each and every day. It takes so little effort, just being aware.

Have a wonderful Motivation Monday, what's your motivation to becoming healthy?

    So I gather you have a govt holiday every month. How cool is that. We have a long stretch between New Years Day and Memorial Day in May. There are various holidays in between, but not every work place recognizes them; they're more just days where the govt offices and banks close and some schools, but everyone else works just the same.

Enjoy your Family Day!

    I was wondering if you had this day off, it's President's Day here, A Family Day, that's so nice, enjoy your day and exercising and watching the Olympics. I thought it was so great when that young man from Canada won his event in skiing and said it was for his brother, who has Cerbal Palsey, he sure got excited when his brother won.It sounds like you had a nice Valentine's Day.
