I've been writing a private blog about motivation and weight loss, and the last few days I've been tempted to just say "Blah!" I'm not doing badly, but I'm not making a re... Read more
Not home yet....
Had a physically grueling week in Denver, but also a lot of fun. Our International competition means lots of singing, hooking up with old friends who share the same crazy hobby, new restaurants and lots of shopping for bling and musically relate... Read more
Feeling kinda "blah" today. This is the kind of day that challenges regular habits. I just wanna stay and play all day. Really, to become oblivious to the outside world, something that's easy when you don't have a job.
(Plenty of work to d... Read more
Or maybe we could call it all or nothing thinking. The idea that any bump in the road has become a judgment, a wall, a final decision, something you cannot change. Ha HA HA HA! We spit on that attitude!
Usually a "positive thinker" and natu... Read more
And I've already had to turn down two eating out invitations. He's trying to keep me from having to cook, but restaurants are just a danger area for me. We will be eating out tomorrow, as is our habit, but 3 times in one weekend? Not a good choi... Read more
My husband is my favorite saboteur. If I want to get off track, he's the go-to guy. It's not even bad foods he supplies for me... usually fruit, occasionally dark chocolate. In truth, he'd give me anything I ask for, but he knows I'm good at tur... Read more
Think on these things:
I've stolen this off another's message in the team posts. Since she "stole" it too, I know she won't mind. This is a great list. It's going on my refrigerator.
1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ulti... Read more
Benefits of Walking
I have arthritis. Not bad enough to take medicine for it, but bad enough to have pain throughout the day when I get up from a chair, walk downstairs, etc. Part of my walking program is doing some yoga stretches afterward, when everything is nice... Read more
Walking every day
This is really paying off for me, in terms of feeling better. I regret leaving it behind for several years.
My legs are getting stronger again, my back and shoulders and neck are free from pain, and it feels really good to be able to wrap m... Read more
The cookies had no lasting effect
I didn't even go over my calorie limit for the day, and went right back to smoothies and sensible eating the next day. The challenge for me is always to make sure one break... Read more
I've been walking every morning (except today) for about 10 days, and am enjoying the feeling of getting my legs strong again.
Have been drinking highly nutritious "green smoothies" for about 4 - 5 days, as well.
Okay, that's the goo... Read more
From a 3-state trip, in which I had to pack for 3 different activities. Went to see my daughter's family (5 grandkids!), to a crazy quilt retreat, and spent time on both ends of the trip with my husband where he's working.
Came back 3 lbs. ... Read more
Today I lifted a heavy bag of garbage. It strained neither my arms nor my back.
Quote I saw today:
One-quarter of what you eat keep you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive.
Hmmmmm.... hopefully... Read more
Boot Camp .... Again!
Since I came very close to the boot camp goals last time, I'm starting over today. The 10 minute "short time" really helps me to know that I can do it, reminiscent of how Chris was when he started this whole SP phenomena. It is just so reachable... Read more
I saw this on a friend's blog, asking others to "pass it on." It's a good one, and I without hesitation, copied it to paste here. Pretty easy, right?
Breaking these de... Read more
