Thoughts of the day

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

It seems that most of us are never to old to be a kid. If you have squashed your inner child you really should find a way to bring them back.

Usually my morning is a quiet one. I study and prepare my mind for the upcoming day. I go to work and then later I sneak in some exercise - since activity both warms me up when I am so cold at the end of the day and it relaxes me and helps me sleep.

This morning I chose to study paper airplanes. I think i will have my cub scouts make paper planes in an upcoming den meeting. Do you recognize the number of designs that could be made and competition that can be generated with a small amount of paper. I love a good competition, especially when I have a chance to show my skill in the process.

When I was 8 years old, I may have been a bit chunky, but I certainly wasn't overweight as I am now. So what has changed? I was a lot more active and I eat more now. Isn't that the fundamental things that make up weight loss/gain? If I were only more like was as a child, I wouldn't eat sugar filled foods, I would have more protein in the morning and less variety in my meals. I didn't have a TV growing up on the farm and so there was always something to do.

My goal for this week is to be consistent in my weight loss efforts and get up and move every chance I get. Smile and run around from time to time. Laugh. emoticon What better way is there to bring back the inner child?

Try doing some of the things you did as a child for activity. When was the last time you jumped rope? when was the last time you went for a long bike ride. I hope you do explore many fun and exciting ways to be a kid again and have a more active lifestyle
