August Goals


Saturday, August 02, 2014

My goals this month are pretty simple:
Continue with:
drinking lots of water
walking every day
short strength training sessions 3 times a week
plant based eating
positive self talk daily
focusing on small, permanent changes
SparkPeople daily

To do a 20 minute yoga session (my new DVD) every other day.

I would like to lose 4 lbs. this month.

I'm a school bus driver, and I start back to work Sept. 2, so I want to enjoy what is left of my summer. I want to pick berries, visit the beach, and reconnect with a high school buddy of mine. So I will be keeping busy!

I have been doing very well, despite it being hot here. I have been very motivated and feeling positive. I have been actually getting up and walking before the heat sets in, and eating tons of veggies, both of which are things I used to make excuses about doing. My depression has been a lot better lately, and that makes it easier. Or, is my depression better because I am eating better and exercising daily?

    emoticon emoticon Going by my own experience, I definitely think that eating better and exercising DOES have an enormous positive influence on our mood.
I've been doing ETL for 5 weeks now and I feel much better, I have more energy and I'm stronger emoitonally.

    Yes, real food and moving the body make us much more clear minded! I use to get upset and reach for processed junk food, now if I start to get emotional, and the inter-voice starts to chatter negative vibes, I go straight for my walking shoes, and walk it off. It works so wonderful. That is my proudest NSV, changing the biggest behavior pattern that sent me into a tailspin in the old days. emoticon
