Applying Moderation For a Healthy Lifestyle
Saturday, July 20, 2013
Spark Coach has assigned this topic to write about as it applies to my healthy lifestyle journey so here goes. I have been going pretty strong with workouts and healthy dieting as well and for the past week I did have a plateau that I was getting frustrated with.
This week I was busy helping my son and daughter in law which I enjoyed, and then this weekend I got very busy with going to a Live Arts Singing Performance for my granddaughter, Anna. Of course, she was wonderful and I totally enjoyed seeing her as she sang her first public performance -- she's 9 years old.
Then I spent time cleaning like crazy, buying and preparing food, etc. for a family birthday party for my other granddaughter, Hailey, who just turned 13! We have a teenager now and I am so proud of her. It is a total joy watching these wonderful kids grow up! I know all you grandmothers out there can relate. Anyway, it was a wonderful busy weekend. Yesterday I actually took a day off from exercising -- which I think I needed to do. Today I got back on the treadmill and did my usual 55 minutes of cardio and I actually felt good doing it. I banked calories from lunch so I could spend them at dinner and I even ate ice cream for dessert. I skipped the cake because I don't really care for it. Anyway, all that to say is that in the future one day a week I am taking a day off from exercising and I think that will even improve my attitude about doing exercise. So there you have it -- a bit of moderation for my exercise program. I hope your weekend was as good as mine. For me, family times are the best times of my life!
Take care all, and make it a great day tomorrow!
