Finding Healthy Opportunities WK 2

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Well this week I thought it was going to be quite challenging since I was out of town for 5 days but instead of giving in, I chose to find an opportunity to exercise any time I could. My hotel room was on the 7th floor and although I took the elevator a couple times, I made a conscious decision to take the stairs as much as possible! 7 flights of stairs is ALOT, by the time I reached my floor, I was breathing hard and sweating like crazy, LOL, my heart rate was definitely UP! I also ate extremely healthy this week. I got at least 20 servings of fruits and veg everyday. SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE RIGHT? I did not eat any meat, I made myself smoothies in the morning and the rest of the day I ate fruits, veggies and nuts. Gosh, I am so proud of the commitment I made over this week because I could've taken the attitude that I was on vacation and overindulged, BUT I didn't. Thanks to my good choices I am down another pound this week. Can't wait to see what this next week has in store for me!!!!! emoticon Oh I also got to meet Bear Grylls, Dr. Jim Sears and many more. I LOVE MY JOB!

    Good for you! I too took the stairs, but my room was only four flights up. Veggies are the hardest for me when I'm eating often they aren't cooked properly or palatably, if that's a word. I'm going to work on eating vegetarian meals for at least two of my daily meals and one or more of my snacks. Have to watch the protein,'s easy to not get enough if I don't include some beans, eggs, potatoes or protein supplement.

    What a great week you had! emoticon

    Your positive attitude and commitment reminded me of this quote:

    There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
