Loving Life Day 85 March 20, 2013

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I told myself I would blog daily, and here I am now only blogging every other day. What happened to my "I'm going to blog daily"? I got lazy, didn't know what to write, it got hard, life got in the way......I can write any other excuse you can think of, but they are just that, excuses for not doing something I know I need to do for ME.

We tend to make excuses for ourselves when we find something hard to do. Exercise, healthy eating and taking care of ourselves. Those are things that we tend to put on the back burner because there are things that are more exciting to do. These things are now normal maintenance things to me, (the exercise, healthy eating), but I need to spice things up a bit and make them exciting again.

How do you do that? I am going to add a couple of things to my goals, like making a new recipe once a week, and trying a different exercise dvd every week. (I'm thinking Zumba, since I have a 5 dvd set I haven't really done much with yet!) I love to cook, but hate the planning so I will get those cookbooks out, search the SparkPeople site for quick and tasty recipes.

No more excuses, make it a rule and do it! Blogging daily is back (well at least 6 out of 7 days a week!)


I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth and what I don't.
I make the choice to exercise or not daily
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind
I make the choice to be healthy!

Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 10,000 steps (already at 12k)
~ 30 minutes on treadmill before work (done)
~ make lunches for tomorrow
~ 15 flights of stairs (11 so far)
~ lunchtime walk (done)
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite (so far so good.....everything...)
~ weigh and measure food today (2 of 3 meals weighed and measured so far)
~ journal thoughts and feelings surrounding eating today
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff

    So amazing how those "excuses" get in our way. but we are not perfect....I now get that but that doesn't stop me from trying and continuing to be the best I can be.
