Took my Spark Friends Advice.
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Well, on the advice of my Spark friends I have taken the batteries out of my scale. I will not weigh in again until after my race on March 9th. I think the idea of focusing on my life style with daily goals, how I feel, and NSV is a good change. And I know I need a change.
I’m a bit nervous about this decision. I’m very goal/challenge orientated. I also like numbers and facts - things that don’t need to be interpreted. However, I have to admit that those old friends are not working for me right now. What used to bring comfort and understanding is not bringing frustrating. Add that to fighting my depression and my true hatred of cold/winter, I’ve not been in a good place.
I plan to run tonight as it is not supposed to be TOO cold (hey we are up in the 30’s – woo hoo). Maybe I can get in some ST too.
Anyway the only NSV I can think of was over the weekend. We had to get new wedding rings. Mine was so big it was actually falling off my hand. I went from a 9 to a 6 on my ring. We just bought plan silver bands but it was cool to see how small my hands were. We bless them ourselves yesterday and put them on last night. So I have a new ring today.
I need a challenge I can do today but not too easy. I really don’t know – hmmm. Suggestions?
**EDIT** At CaseySauer's & LeslieLenore's suggestions - I'm in:
2 sets (15 reps) wall push-ups
2 sets (15 reps) bicep curls
105 jumping jacks
2 sets (15 reps) shoulder shrugs
2 sets (15 reps) triceps dips
