Monday and Physical Therapy
What a great start to a week! Started physical therapy to help get more mobile; I feel the therapist "nailed it" and has found part of the problem. I started exercises today that were really work, but it felt good to be making progress! And t... Read more
And here we go again
I heard a person who keeps returning to their goal after losing sight of it has tremendous will power. So I am going with the positive thoughts and energy, and going at it again. Knowing this is a lifestyle for which to aim, I refuse to throw ... Read more
I am full of excuses, despite the fact that I posted some months ago a empowering quote to remind me what excuses are all about: "A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse."-Stephan Dolley Jr.
So what are... Read more
Quick and Easy Meals
Ants on a log (peanut butter or almond butter on celery with either dried cherries, raisins, or a few dark chocolate chips)
Dump and heat meatless chili: 1 can of chickpeas, black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, red beans, green chilies,... Read more
What a difference Spark Friends make!
When I first began this SparkPeople journey, it was just for something to do while I recovered from an accident. My brother-in-law suggested it, and I appreciate that especially now! Spark Guy and my brother-in-law were my only Spark Friends, ... Read more
Since putting the scale away
I put the scale away awhile ago. Since then, I have been measuring the amount of moving I can get in throughout the day, feeling satisfied with looser clothes, and getting an energy surge from taking good care of myself. I am also tracking the... Read more
Missed my morning exercise yesterday
I had committed to a spark streak; it only lasted 5 days. Yesterday, I had to leave dark and early for a 3 hour drive to Columbus for a seminar. I didn't get in my morning exercise because I felt I needed the extra sleep to drive more than the... Read more
NOT a morning person, but I CAN BE a morning exerciser.
Day 2 now. I know it's not much, but it is a start. I have crawled out of bed, without hitting the snooze button, and staggered to the exercise room (one of the benefits of having 3 children out of the house, with only 1 remaining....EXTRA ROO... Read more
Looking for the next adventure
As I move along with this journey, I am seeking a way to make movement and my life's purpose more fun! Since the car accident in 2009, I have slowly regained the use of my left foot and both ankles. Still hurts, but I know God had a purpose f... Read more
Never give up; get those workouts going again
It is just the truth. I need to force myself to exercise. Once I begin, I am ok with it. It is just getting myself to get going. Going to jump on the elliptical first thing in the morning. Haven't done that for awhile. Later, I will take o... Read more
Enjoy each day!
Maybe I really am just getting old, but I find myself wanting to cherish each day, the ordinary ones and the exceptional ones. When I allow myself the time to notice what is going on around me, instead of bustling through each day, I can find m... Read more
Totally have a love/hate relationship with the weekend. I love it because it seems a bit less structured and more low key. I hate it actually for the same reason! The structure of the weekday keeps me on track. I'm half-way through the weeke... Read more
They say moderation is the key to life in general. I have been known to be one to go all out or nothing at all...I guess what they call perfectionism. When it doesn't go as I planned, well, why bother? The last several days, nothing at all has... Read more
Guess we need the tough days to appreciate the good ones, huh? I just couldn't totally pull it together today. Feel like it was a mostly wasted day. I am trying to focus on what went right instead of all the wrongs. (There really are a lot of... Read more
Do not procrastinate on exercise.
Lesson learned. If I put off exercising, somehow it just doesn't happen. Secretly (or not so secretly maybe) it is not my favorite thing to do. I would rather curl up with a good book. But if I make it a priority to get it done early, before... Read more
