It's Never Too Late to Make a Non-scale Victory Happen

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I had a very long day yet it was not long enough to get everything done. emoticon

emoticon I went to my churches 100th anniversary celebration. The service was 3 hours long but I hardly noticed. It was a wonderful celebration and we had quite the collection of speakers. After we spent the morning at church I spent a few hours with my Mom.

I love my Mom, she is a strong and wonderful woman but she can be intense and can be all over the place sometimes. She sucked the energy right out of me and my husband so much so that when we got home at 4pm instead of running errands we BOTH needed a nap. emoticon My mothers not elderly. She's 49, She had me as a teenager, I'm 31. My family has a history of bipolar. I got help at an early age but my Mom believing this illness skips a generation refuses to get help. So when I say she's all over the place what I mean is.....well.....she's nuts. (If there was an emoticon with a smiley in a straight jacket I would have inserted it here) But she's my mom so what are you gonna do?

I had planned to spend time with my brother, go grocery shopping, go to the gym and take back some motorcycle gear that no longer fits. But this all went to the way side. Our energy level was null. We passes out at 4pm and we didn't wake up till 8 pm. I started feeling guilty, like I wasted the day. I had only gotten 3000 of 10,000 steps. The gym closes at 7pm on weekends.
emoticon Then I remembered Coach Nicole has some great work out videos on spark people. So, I did 2 work outs:

8-Minute Cardio Intervals Workout

Bootcamp: 10-Minute Cardio Kick Workout

emoticon Today I learned that it is never too late in the day to proclaim a non-scale victory. My non-scale victory today is doing two SparkPeople workouts instead of throwing my hands up in the air and feeling defeated. I did it! You can do it to!

    why not have a streak. you'll exercise for at least 10 minutes everyday. It is really gratifying when you find a why out of a tricky situation. You feel powerful.
