For someone who has never been a big sports fan other than watching my own son growing up and playing sports....these Olympics have really caught my attention on many levels.
I made a committment to myself that if I was going to be watching any tv, I would be exercising while doing it. Woo Hoo...I've been doing great. Especially as I figured out how to do the free step component of my Wii Fit Plus and watch at the same time. It has given me some events to connect with my son over. YAY...snowboarding! The sports themselves have helped me to push on with the exercising when I've felt like stopping....the sport is not done, therefore neither am I! I'm even sleeping more soundly, as I'm exercising more intensely.
I've also noticed an interesting (for me anyway) side effect from the increased exercise...I'm eating less! Perhaps it's because my attention is focused elsewhere, or just perhaps my body is burning the fuel more efficiently and therefore is not hungry. Personally....I don't really care what the reason is...it's a positive result.
I'm sleeping more soundly, therefore I'm feeling more rested in the mornings.
I'm enjoying the Olympics as well as seeing a positive result from my own commitment.
It's been awhile since I've looked upon my exercising with some degree of excitement.
I'm toning up once again.
Geff is back to work once again. It's so good to see how well he is doing.
I'm proud of how well all our athletes are doing in their events, some are winning medals and the others are placing very well in their events.
I'm positive that I am going to have a great day.
Enjoy the opportunity to make this a great day for yourself.
