when is my head going to be there

Friday, June 21, 2013

So last night I did this 30 day challenge thing that I made up from other 30 day challenge exercises and I finally started it last night. it only took maybe a little over 5 minutes to do but I can feel the 50 squats in my butt today! lol I am getting bored being at home all summer long and today I am going to do a 45 minute walk on the tread mill and maybe at the camper tonight I will do some walking there too! I was going to start the day off with a good breakfast but I ate left overs from supper last night which is walking tacos. but im hoping my workouts are going to help me to eat better. I know when I workout I tend to eat better because of the hormones that you release when you workout helps you to make better choices and eating something full of fat after a work out just isn't satisfying for me like it is if I just sit all day and eat that junk. So my first goal is to start my exercise regimen (which I think I should because I had to look up how to spell regimen lol) And hopefully once I get that down i can start to watch my food intake and eating healthier. i am also hoping that my brain automatically converts to healthy eating once i start it but im sure i will have to push myself to eat better. but i am first going to start out exercising because i think that is my hardest thing to keep going.... because when i just sit here all day i feel like eating junk food. if i am up and about for the day and doing lots of things i eat better. so my goal is to keep moving and then i think i will just naturally eat better things for me. we will see how this works out. I have read that people start at one thing only and incorporate other things along to way so i am going to try that approach and see how it goes. my heart is in it but my head isn't there yet.

    There you go, one step at a time! emoticon

I actually find that when I start eating healthier, I have excess energy to burn and can't help but exercise. I tried the "exercise first, change my diet later" thing originally, and I know that works for MANY people. For me, I had a hard time finding the energy to workout until I started eating better. The beauty of the Spark program is that we are able to find what works for US, and that is what makes SparkPeople so successful. I've been pretty bored this summer myself, which is part of what prompted me to focus on my eating and exercise goals-it gives me something beneficial to do! And I always look forward to getting out of the house, so I definitely don't blame you for looking forward to that as well. My boyfriend is taking me hiking tomorrow, and I am so excited. :) Walking was how I started getting exercise! I'm so proud of you for taking this step! emoticon

  I understand wanting to get out of the house! I have got to keep myself busy during the day or I get bored and think I am hungry but I'm not. Good thing is to keep only healthy snacks around. That way when you do get bored you grab something good for you. Also try and get out at least for 30 min. each day! Even if it's just to walk around your yard. The outdoor air does wonders for the brain!
Good luck!!!!

    If I can stay busy, I do so much better. If I just sit around, that is when I start craving the wrong foods. Have to keep both my body and my mind busy - love the above suggestion on a lit of 3 things to do for exercise and 3 for the house. Think I will try that also. Hang in there.

    One of my Spark buddies makes a list of three's - 3 things to do for exercise and 3 for the house (like cleaning projects).
I know what you mean - i do much better if i can keep my hands busy so they aren't reaching for something to eat!
Blessings on the journey to a healthy lifestyle.
