Positive Vibes

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Just wanted to log that I feel great. I love summer! I always exercise more because I want an excuse to do something outside. Yesterday, I went to the metro park and walked down and back while doing most (darm pullups) of the stations both ways. I eat healthier in the summer too. I love salads in the summer because they arent hot, and grilling is my favorite way to make sure I get all of my veggies!

Some challenges this week: finding time to exercise on days I have work and school. I work early and have 30 mins between class and work. I get home at 8 and am pretty tired to boot. Ive been taking the stairs and I have to park pretty far from class because I refuse to buy a summer parking pass. But at least its only 2x's a week for now.

Another challenge: drinking healthy. My favorite beers are not the light ones, I had two beers last night totaling in 500 cals. I have heard though, that crystal light makes cocktail flavor drinks and all you have to do is add liquor. I dont like the effect or cost of liquor as much as I like beer.

Will be doing some research and working on getting further in my P90X yoga video.

    FIrst of all - thanks for stopping by - so you were a camp counselor? ok, count me as impressed, I would not have the patience for that - too many other kids that need babysitting that would drive me crazy :)

    Secondly, great to see you around here again - hope to hear more reports

    I sure agree about summer - whether its extra tennis matches, walks in the early morning or late evening (and sometimes even mowing) - its so much easier to keep mowing and stay out of the house - and the heat just seems to keep my appetite in check anyway - I can't stand playing tennis feeling full like I am pulling a plow behind me

    Best of luck with your goals HEALTHY - some time if you are feeling bored you will have to report on what kind of classes you are taking this summer - anything interesting? Have a great summer - Brad

    Great that you're feeling motivated and positive today. Life can always get in the way of staying fit and healthy. But, I have learned to work the good things in to small pockets of time here and there. Studies show that - while it is more convenient to get in a workout in one burst for some - the results aren't significantly impacted if you conduct your workouts in short bursts throughout the day.

    So, feel free to do some quick bursts of strength training or cardio when circumstances permit, and go back to it when another opening arises. Every healthy choice you make adds up, great or small. :)

    Best wishes to you on your journey to good health and personal happiness!
