Day 30 - 17th November 2012 - I'm into something good

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Daily Note

Today i had a rest day, it was a good thing too because i needed it lol, i went into town and bought some elastic head bands, the ones that stretch over your head its like a bandana with elastic, hmm you probably know what i am talking about, i don't like the plastic, wired type of headbands they seem to hurt my head so this is a better option especially often i loose hair clips and i can never get it perfect in my hair lol. I wish i could upload photos to my laptop but my laptop doesn't have the drive where i can just insert the camera SD card in, where my desk top at home could. But i think i ate something wrong that didn't seem to agree with my tummy, now i feel better though.

I am grateful for the weekends.

November Goals

Well i got some cardio in today and my minutes. I did something fun with shopping. Had time to myself this was really a me day. Ones in awhile i deserve that don't i? Everything else was in track and i didn't have any junk food unless you call a hot chocolate milk as one that was my treat for the day.

Sparkpeople Plan

Exercise seems to be on top of my mind, if i have a lazy day there seems to be a voice in my head, remember exercise and keeps repeating it in my head until i do some exercise lol, it has become such a habit that i have now even exercise institution in my head lol telling me don't forget to exercise today lol. Then i had that moment of me thinking of my ideal body at the beach on a summer's day wearing only a bikini. Now i really want that. I tracked and read my motivational quote like i do always lol . This too has just become a thing i automatically do when i come on the computer, i just feel like signing into sparkpeople and on my way.

Motivational Song

I'm into something good by Herman's Hermits

Hmmm my songs started with today's music, went into my birth century of the 80s, went into a happy turn and now i have driven myself into the "oldies" and swinging the groove with 60's music, lol am i as happy as the people back then ? lol Maybe i would of made a good hippie. But but but this is just such a great song, you will never have me post something up of Justin Bieber or that girl whats her name oh yea Nicki Minaj type of music, i heard the beauty and the beat the other day and my head just started ringing, i think i lost a few brain cells listening to that, sorry to those people who like these 2, i just couldn't stand it lol. So maybe you will hear more of my Shindig style. Shindig is a happy get together with alot of fun dance and form a band on the spot sort of thing lol. Like what they used to do, now its all about making the group sing the same like robots on stage, they have no freedom , only freedom i see these days with singers are those who are solo.

Motivational Quotes

“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” ~Brian Tracy

I must admit since i joined sparkpeople i have not gone into that comfort zone of binging with the indulgence type foods of crisps, chocolates, candy you know, probably many of people here on sparkpeople still struggle with this. And i do find that i have grown so so so so so (you get my point) much in this month, yes i have only been here for a month (officially my month is on Monday though) , To go to a comfort zone to be able to benefit from exercise has made me feel alot happier, it is funny the more deeper i went into my comfort zone the more unhappy i was, and i am glad i do realise that now. I am glad that i have been able to get of that coach mode glued in front of the tv and just stuffing my face mindlessly, that is how my comfort zone was, now i get up, i do the things i need to do, the need of hunger i go for a walk instead, come back feel energized happier and that temptation is gone . I have succeeded and i wish to continue this success! emoticon At first i really found it strange and awkward and uncomfortable but i got through it and i have not looked back since. Getting over that uncomfortable and awkwardness bubble was the hardest part but after it i am glad i did the process i had to , to get to where i am today :) Even though i still have a really long way to go with becoming a healthy weight.

    Sounds like even on a lazy day you remember to do all the healthy things. You are definitely into a good routine. Amazing since you are far from home. emoticon

    Sometimes rest and relaxation can be more beneficial to your mind and body than any amount of exercise and good eating. It's great to have a healthy mindset that can distinguish times like that for yourself! I hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend and that the plastic elastic band thingies work out!

    You are doing great Aithley! Congrats on getting your cardio in and doing something fun with shopping. You definitely deserve a day to yourself! Great job on your eating too! That's really good to hear that exercise has become a habit and something you are always thinking about.

    I can't say that I'm a fan of either singer myself. I can tolerate Justin Bieber a little more though. I don't care for much music from the 60's or 70's. I do like music from the 50's and 80's.

    I like that quote a lot! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon on being here for a month!!! emoticon emoticon I completely agree with getting out of your comfort zone. Even with exercise, you have to constantly challenge yourself so that you can continue to grow as a person mentally and physically! You are doing fantastic!! Keep up the great work!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The more you stick with it, the easier it gets, promise! One month becomes two, then three, then four... and same with the weight. One kilo becomes two, then five, then ten and before you know it you'll have lost a couple stone :) Best of luck from across the pond!

    Love the song and the quote! I cannot function without some time to myself to recharge my batteries. It's good to recognize that so you can give yourself what you need to keep going. Great job! It's hard to believe it has only been a month but you have done so well in that short time! Congratulations!
