Moving Forward

Tuesday, September 24, 2013



It's time. I just spoke with a health coach associated with health incentive plan through work. I talked about my involvement with SparkPeople since April and my weight loss since then. I identified my need to start moving. Starting today, my new goal is to walk a mile 5 days a week. Starting today. My dogs will love it and I will. too. For reasons I don't really fully understand, I just haven't wanted to do this. I haven't wanted to keep these dates with myself. Maybe I haven't regarded myself enough (I'm sure that's the case). And, then, too, I have believed that I don't have time.

I DO HAVE TIME.
THE TIME TO START IS NOW.
ONE MILE FIVE DAYS A WEEK.
KEEPING THIS DATE WITH MYSELF.
CHECKING IN WITH THIS COACH NEXT MONDAY AGAIN.

I am also changing my goal around water from 8 glasses a day to 12 glasses a day.

    I hope you keep these days with yourself, it is so rewarding just to get outside and breath the fresh air even. Enjoy!

    You'll see it's pretty addictive. Once you start, you just can't stop, which is a good thing! emoticon

    I am back on track too. Pushing myself even if it means dragging myself. Good luck!

    You have made a wonderful decision - keep this date with your dogs and pretty soon you'll be stretching out for two miles a day - and feeling low if the weather keeps you inside!! Every day that I walk is a better day for me!! And remember, I'm here to support you!!

  It's hard for me to make myself get up and walk, but I ALWAYS feel better when I do. Even if it's just a short walk. And now that the weather is getting cooler, I'm really enjoying it. It helps if you have someone to walk with you to keep you company or load up your iPod (or other device) with your favorite songs and go. Sometime's I'll walk a little longer than I planned because I want to hear a few more songs!

Keep that date with yourself- you deserve it!
