Small Successes


Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I have realized that I need to start looking at the small successes that I have accomplished, instead of focusing on the slip ups.

I snacked really late last night, but I counted it all. It may not have been healthy choices, but I stayed within my calorie intake. Today will be a better day of healthy choices! I started out great with a strength work out for my arms and I have already completed 40 squats out of the 180 I am supposed to do today.

Yesterday, it was beautiful out (47 and sunny) so I went for a run. I was only going to do a 3 mile run, but I went 4. Since I ran my half marathon in October, I have only been doing 3 milers here and there, but I would like to get back into running further distances. I love running! Sometimes it really makes my body ache after, but it is such an awesome stress relief. And after I feel so good about myself!

We got more snow last night, so another snow day for me and some shoveling so I can go into the classroom and work on some lesson plans. I also plan on making some paper flowers for wedding decorations. My wedding dress came in yesterday and I cannot wait to see it. Hopefully, I can get in better shape so that it looks spectacular on me!

Looking good has always been a bug motivator for me to lose weight. Now I just want to get in shape. I feel so much better emotionally when I work out and eat healthy. Also, I want to be healthy so I can be there when I have kids and through out their childhood and adulthood.

    Our future is always before us and not behind us. That's where our focus ought to be. God Bless YOU! Vic.

    You said it all right in the title of your blog.... accentuate the positive!And by tracking everything you are being accountable even if you feel you aren't making the best choices you are aware of what you are eating. If it is later reflected in your weight at least then you can go back and see what maybe went wrong (but I doubt it with all the runnning you are doing). I am a runner "wanna be" I am doing what I can so far but with arthritis in my knees they don't always cooperate. Happy wedding and I hope it stops snowing for you soon! emoticon
