Trying to psych myself up!
Sunday, April 14, 2013
First, I deleted my prior blog. It was upsetting me. But thank you to those who commented. It helps.
Got a lot of yard work done today. My exercise. I'm more sore from this than from the zumba class I take....lol. Lot's of bending, stretching, walking, hauling... really using my muscles. But it feels sooo good and I can see the progress immediately of my efforts.
To help me on my weight loss venture I saw a suggested tool that I'm incorporating. I made a chain of paper clips which represent the weight I want to lose. I put colored clips at the 5lb mark and bigger colored clips at the 10 lb mark and the very last clip is gold....the PRIZE! Every pound I lose I can remove a clip. I made 2...one for work and one for home. I have the one at work hanging up.. the one at home is still in a heap.. not sure where I want to hang it yet/ But looking at it is unsettling right now. The paper clips look like a chain....a chain that represents the weight that is tying me down....restraining me, binding me. I want to break free of this chain...this extra weight.. this uncomfortable body I find myself in! I only realize the discomfort because I did lose weight....and then I gained some of it back. I'm not liking the some back aspect.
So I had a good day. Good food choices.... my daughter make a wonderful low fat Quiche for brunch today.. egg whites, low fat cheese, spinach and fat free half and half.. plus spices......was yummy! I got some exercise in by doing my yard work and I just finished having dinner..... a seafood pasta with spaghetti squash as the pasta. Feeling full, tired and ready to veg before beginning the work week. Looking forward to my dance weekend but I will take another day off work (I have so many vacation days that I haven't used) to finish some things and visit my folks. Tomorrow night is ZUMBA....Tuesday is line dancing... maybe zumba again on Wednesday... either at home or at class. Then Friday to Sunday fun time line dancing weekend.... lots of dancing, almost no sleep but plenty of fun!
My pics for the day.....
Keep Sparking...it works!
