Sun turns to gloom


Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Well, one great day to enjoy the outdoors and now back to rain. At least it turned out to be nice for the funeral. When getting home, I changed clothes and went out and picked up the yard and took a walk with the dogs. We even grilled outside and did it ever taste good.

Trying to push myself more - today was 10 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the threadmill. I even got the ball out and did a few situps. The ball helps support my back so I do not injury it any more. Tonight will be Zumba.

I am trying to tell my body it is time to lose some more. I haven't budged in so long. Maybe the body is saying it doesn't want to go any lower.

I found an article on how to be nice to yourself. Write yourself a short kind letter daily , befriend your inner critic, paying attention to your self-talk. Be your own BBF. Self-compassionhelps you tick with healthy habits and hard work to reach your goals. Rate yourself:
1. When I'm in emotional pain, I try to be loving toward myself.
2. When I'm feeling low, I try to approach my feelings with curiosity and
openness.
3. When I'm down and out, I remind myself that lots of other people
in the world feel like I do.

The more you practice self-compassion the closer you'll benefit from exercises. Studies show that self-compassion can help you avoid overeating and stick with an exercise routine.

    This is an excellent reminder, self-compassion work. Despite the fact that I recommend it to clients all the time, I admit the human condition inclines me to be hard on myself! I have noted that scolding tends to produce resistance in adults. So when I scold myself, that is indeed what I get! As for the weather, there apparently is nothing to be done about it! It is dismaying! I am so looking forward to warm weather ...
