  • Too scared for Yoga?

    3/18/2018 8:03:21 PM, by NEPT45

    Well, I bummed myself out! I had decided to finally try a yoga class with a friend. But then I started googling yoga...I can't stand in a circle facing a bunch of yoga experts! I can't do those poses with my bad knee and my bad shoulder! I don't have any yoga clothes to wear! And so I cancelle... Read more

  • DO 1 THING!

    3/15/2018 11:31:36 AM, by NEPT45

    So many to do lists, so many goals...we put so much pressure on ourselves to accomplish so much on a daily basis. At times it feels like too much to succeed and then we feel some kind of way: disappointed, discouraged, even hopeless or we want to throw in the towel. If you don't try, you can't fa... Read more

  • I'm saying YES to something NEW!

    3/13/2018 8:33:42 PM, by NEPT45

    Here's me, in my garage, working out in blissful privacy. No one sees when I trip on the treadmill, wobble while lunging, or when my face turns red and sweaty. I wear my headphones and sing off key. I run 5ks and 10ks because after I tried my first, I realized that it was really a me vs. me expe... Read more

  • There's Power in a Positive Mindset

    3/12/2018 11:09:00 AM, by NEPT45

    A friend reminded me that we always have the choice to do the right thing: that we have the mental power. We can argue this with so many reasons, excuses and even physical issues. Then it started to sink in: WE HAVE THE MENTAL POWER TO MAKE BETTER CHOICES. Even with all our imperfections we ar... Read more

  • Low energy day

    3/11/2018 4:12:45 PM, by NEPT45

    106 I worked out this morning but forgot to drink my morning cup of coffee. Add to that it's been drizzling a bit and it might be the perfect opportunity to read a book! (on the couch, under an afgan, with my doggies) Happy Sunday!... Read more

  • My Sneakers are begging for some action!

    3/10/2018 10:34:01 AM, by NEPT45

    364 "Hey Lady! Sign up for another 5k already!" said my Nikes. I love the time of the year in AZ when the weather starts to warm up, the sun is shining and it's still under 100 degrees! I just feel ready to run. Although I spent most of my adult life thinking I was unable to run I feel so blessed... Read more

    The difference between a good week and a week where I feel hungry is directly related to how many veggies I eat. I love having baggies of cucumbers, carrots, celery and peppers in the fridge. At TV time I always have a choice if I want a snack. When I'm packing my lunch, I toss a baggie in. So ea... Read more

  • Thank you EXERCISE for my good night's sleep!

    3/7/2018 8:35:31 AM, by NEPT45

    176 I slept like a baby 2 night's in a row! Wow! Strange how often my short term memory fails me and I forget all the great things exercise/activity does for a person. As someone who wakes up every 2 hours, right now this will be my biggest motivator to keep this habit! I'm going to coin a new ... Read more

  • "You don't define me, scale!"

    3/6/2018 8:27:06 AM, by NEPT45

    20 I AM MORE THAN JUST A NUMBER. Nothing is so frustrating as the scale moving up when you feel you earned a loss. That number actually does define us in some ways. For example, health risks are attached to numbers on the scale. It is one of the first things about us that our doctors look at, ... Read more

    Sometimes life is filled with CHAOS. Things happen and we feel like we have no control over our own destiny. We feel angry, sad, stressed, freaked out, bored, exhausted, distracted or even happy. Our emotions are bubbling up and we are faced with dealing with our feelings. Maybe you are like m... Read more

    I'm dedicating this blog to my best friend(blonde) who would have celebrated her 52 birthday in February. I miss you dear friend! I am going to get back to living healthy and I am going to think of how you loved jazzercise when I want to skip my workout! I am going to remember your healthy snac... Read more

  • It's Monday and I want to get it Right!

    2/26/2018 8:05:43 AM, by NEPT45

    I can't believe how long it's been since I've been on track! I'm mad at myself for letting my good habits slip away & slightly panicked about getting back on track. I've got lots of excuses...I recently learned I am probably in the early stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed with Essent... Read more
