On the Positive Side..

Saturday, February 16, 2013

We just got done with a Falling for Fitness Challenge that stretches over several weeks. I've done this for a few seasons now, not sure how many, but this is the first one where I ended up gaining weight! I'went from 144.6 to 152.6.
BUT to look on the positive side, I'm going into the next season at a higher weight meaning I can really do some damage in the weight loss department! lol! Watch out! Here I come!! lol!

Confessions: I've been eating way too much salt lately. I really need to reel it in.

Positives: I finished a tree I have been working on for my Faith Formation class. It looks really good. I'll take pictures and show you another day. Fingers crossed I can transport it unharmed. :)

Spark: I am REALLY going to try and spark it back up. I went on a 3 mile walk yesterday with the boys and the baby since it was so nice out. It really felt good to get moving again. Last night and this morning my knee is yelling at me for it. But I can't use that as an excuse to not exercise any more. I really need to get back into my yoga AT LEAST! Yes take care of myself and my knee but not exercising it at all isn't helping either. The extra weight I put back on isn't helping it. I need to get motivated to do whatever it takes INCLUDING going to the doctor!!
I've been saying I'm going to make the appointment for awhile now. But I'm going to mark it on the calendar and make the call Monday! Let me explain my fear I'm trying to push through. It's been over a year now but there was an almost 2 year stretch where I was pretty sick and going to the doctor every week to 2 weeks to get my blood tested and steroids upped or brought down. I had a million tests and scans including bone marrow taken (ouch doesn't cover it) and eventually my spleen removed. I've been doing SO much better since then but now I have this fear of a repeat I guess and it has me scared to go. And I know how bad fear can be so I hate that I'm doing this to myself. I know my eating has been so good (except the salt) and I should be just fine. I need to "claim" that and know that. I. AM. FINE. I AM HEALTHY. I AM STRONG. Now go to the doctor! :)

Look what I found in the frig!

I have to say just how proud I am of my team members (
)! When I go to a sparkpage of someone we are celebrating that day and see all of the positive messages, it just fills me up with love and hope and all things good! It's like one big virtual hug! And I LOVE seeing all of the motivational quotes and positive affirmations and people just really making good use of the team. I love it!!!
Have a great Saturday!!!

    I'm excited for our new season too! This is my favorite time of year. It's nice out but not hot yet. Hope your knee feels better soon!
