Just Keep Swimming...
Motivation can be so difficult to sustain. I find myself thinking about giving up so often that I wonder how I ever talk myself through it. I've decided to take out quotes I've printed and placing them around my house so I see them multiple ti... Read more
My arm hurts, so I want to just give up!
I know that's a completely silly way to think, but I just can't help hearing that voice in my head. I had a surgery 5 years ago on a nerve in my arm and everything healed just fine after that. It acts up every once in a while, but for the most... Read more
Yesterday you said tomorrow...
I saw that quote somewhere on SP...It's what I tell myself when I'm trying to motivate myself to do something... usually cardio! You better get on that treadmill... or outside running, or to that fitness class... because "yesterday you said ... Read more
Keeping up with Myself...
Most days I see my long to-do list and think, of course I can get all that done today... but then as I reach for the bills I have to pay, I see a coupon I don't want to forget, which leads me to the magazine that I should really put in the bath... Read more
Took the dogs for a run this morning, grilled up some chicken and got fresh salad greens and radish from my garden... Great day today and it's not even 1:00pm yet! I've a list of things to get accomplished today and I'm on a roll. The ground ... Read more
I had a great day! For no reason in particular :)
I was talking to my husband tonight and of course, he asked how my day was... My response? It was good! and I'm smiling and just in a good mood. Inevitably, he asked what happened that made it so good? Absolutely nothing in particular. Read more
About 2 hours ago, I realized that my phone calendar has not been syncing with my online calendar, and when I updated my phone yesterday, my calendar disappeared. So, I am struck with a fear I haven't felt in a very long time... I'm going to b... Read more
Electric Fence = More Playtime; Win-Win!
I really didn't want to put up 6 ft fencing around the yard to keep the dog from jumping over, so we went with the electric dog fence instead. At first, I was worried how the dogs would react and if our younger pup would understand what was goi... Read more
Darn dog, you jumped the fence? Again!?!?
So, there I am this morning , running a little late... trying to get coffee brewing... when the barking starts, and I think to myself "what's all the noise out there this early in the morning?" I go outside to find one dog sitting there looki... Read more
The "good day decision"
It may only be noon, but I've officially decided that today is a good day. Even though I didn't get a lot marked off my to-do list this morning as planned, and eventhough one of my dogs jumped the fence into the neighbor's yard, while the other... Read more
Just get out there and do it - thanks to my doggies!
I really didn't want to go for a walk today. My hamsting is tight and it looks like it's about to rain... and, and, and... I thought of a million reasons. Then I thought about that shirt I wore the other day that was too tight a few weeks ago... Read more
Day 13/14: Because you have goals you want to reach...
That's right, I have goals!!! And they are no longer scale-based. What a difference it makes to step OFF the scale to measure progress. I have been eating more veggies/fruit and that was a goal of mine that I've achieved. I wanted to exercis... Read more
Day 11/12: Because it'll give your skin a glow...
That would be nice I suppose... I'm much more concerned with fitting into jeans, but I'll take glowing skin too. :) I want to look healthy, not just body shape or composition, but hair, skin, the whole package. I know I'm more happy when I'm... Read more
Day 10: Because you want toned arms...
Who doesn't want toned arms? I want more than just "toned" arms... I want to look like I work out as hard as I do (which isn't incredibly hard right now, but will be over time). This was a fitting reason today because on the January Challenge... Read more
Day 9: Because you'll miss fewer days of work...
That's a good one, but I hardly miss any days as it is. Though when I am working out regularly and eating right, I feel better both mentally and physically. Being healthy makes me happy!
