August resolutions

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Who says you can only make resolutions at New Year's. It is a new month so I am making August Resolutions.
There are two areas in my life that I need to make major changes in; the first is sleep and the second is movement.
I have been trying to win the sleep battle for at least six months, every time I go to sleep on time I feel better, I lose weight, and have more energy. Why is this such a hard thing to do? The rewards are immediate and the benefits are wonderful. Resolution - In bed by 10 every night.
The second is my sedentary life. I exercise. I schedule exercise. Exercise is not the problem. the problem is that the rest of the time I am sitting. Time to change that. It must be deliberate, it must be scheduled and it must be consistent. So up every hour may be even every half hour to walk and do one thing anything - put something away, pet the dog, something! Time to change my life. Resolution - up on my feet every hour all day long - even in the evening.

    Great resolutions! You can do this. I so agree with both. Sleep is magical. I think I love summer so much because I tend to be outside and moving more naturally. I don't love having a big yard but I have one and it takes work. Having B&B guests too keeps me moving and cleaning. Having a knee injury on the other hand is putting a hold on both so it is frustrating. We can do this! One step and zzz, one day at a time!

    Great blog and great ideas! I am by nature a "night owl" so I struggle to get to bed at a reasonable time. I hear you too on being sedentary when not exercising. I think we can both agree that the more we move the easier it gets and the more energy we have. Happy August! emoticon
