More Pep Today!

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

It was one of those pretty busy, full days. Two loads of wash, changing the bed, taking care of chickens, rabbits & the dog. It's below freezing, so just keeping the water open for the outside small livestock takes quite a bit of extra time. And....driving the bus 3x/day too. What I'm getting at is it was a little bit harder to cram in the exercise - seemed like I was running around all day long! That's not a bad thing though, in fact, maybe that's the POINT of this!!

Got a good 80 min. of walking in and strength training. In one of the upper body sets I moved on to heavier weights. Yes, I could feel the burn! But it also felt like an accomplishment when I got done. No trouble with food today - no temptations - no hunger - no glitches. A much easier day than yesterday!! I think maybe with days like yesterday one of the things I'll keep in the forefront of my mind will be 'This too shall pass." The cravings & temptations will come, but they will also pass. I need to be very aware of that.

Today the exercise didn't feel forced, it was just a matter of fitting it into a very busy day.

Tomorrow, I'd like to start using one of the SparkPeople DVD's that I bought. I'm sure they're very good and will work muscles that I haven't targeted yet.

All in all, a great day and I hope that you've had a real good one too!!

A special thanks to those of you who read yesterday's 'challenge' blog, when the going got tough and you left your kind comments. You don't know how much it helps. I appreciate all of your supportive, wonderful posts. You really keep me going!!! Warm blessings to all of you.

    Put everyting into perspective. Address what needs to be
    changed, change what you can and leave the rest go. If it
    is out of your control, so be it.
    Focus on you and the bad days will be a minor annoyance
    and not a major failure. HUGS!
