I'm totally enthusiastic about beginning the month and a new Walk Challenge. That always happens at the start of things, so this time I'm planning to make it all the way thru the month. I was totally AWOL in August, and very tentative in September because I was getting back into it (I lost 5 lbs., exercised almost every day and logged in almost every day too).
But getting back to my "high" right now. I'm just feeling so "opened up" for some reason. The good guidelines for losing weight seem to mean something to me, more than just rules. Like, the calorie count of meals is making more of an impression on me and I'm making decisions based on them. And, I've just read someone's Blog and she mentioned being "more active" every day. Well, duh! have I heard that before? Of course! But, right now, it feels like a revelation. It's not just to plan exercise; cardio or strength training...but to DO rather than sleep...which I do with too much regularity. (There's the before lunch nap, after lunch nap, after dinner nap, before evening activities nap...you get the picture.)
AND, I just realized that it's the last quarter of the year...and my birthday is coming up (Dec. 24th). So, it's the perfect time to make a longer plan and aim for a big birthday present. I have to focus on the day at a time because, well, I just have to. But wouldn't it be nice to give myself a nice BIG present at the end of the year? So, I'm going to think on it, be realistic and specific...and GO FOR IT!
I love starting new projects!!!
