What's a Girl to do!!

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

First I want to thank everyone for their blessings and prayers during my difficult time it really was touching and helped me get through it!! I have been doing alright. A little depressed but nothing that I can't handle. As the calender goes closer to Christmas I will get better because I love this time of year and I am getting a Wii for xmas with the get fit program-I can't wait.I have been a little lax on my water intake lately but starting Friday I am starting anew again. I hate having to get back on track again after slipping off the wagon a little bit. My weight loss is at 52 pounds now so I am happy about that. I have had a terrible time with my exercising. I just can't seem to be able to motivate myself to get off the couch and on the treadmill. I did very good when we were doing the fitness min challenge but I have slacked off a bit.I know I am just going for 10 to 20 mins per day and I can't get motivated.I need a bomb under my butt. I don't know whats wrong with me I feel motivated and I love how I feel when I exercise and I just don't do it. I know this would help me get stronger and less short of breath for sure. Exercise is very important to me.I want to take this time and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving . I will be spending it with my husbands family then we will go to my moms at the nursing home with my dad.I will take her a plate of food and she will light right up and be happy.We had quite a bad storm yesterday and during the night but its better today. I live on a dangerous hill so we couldnt get down it yesterday but today it is ok. We didnt get as much snow as they predicted.I bought myself a new car a Subaru Forrester I just love it. It is light green in color and goes well in the snow.Well, going to close for now and again I say have a Happy Thanksgiving. Love you all, Lu Ann

    Hello there! What,s a girl to do?
    She has to take out her diary and choose three days a week and make a date with herself to exercise three times a week for 40 minutes, then increase to four times, then five. Then increase the time she is exercising to fifty minutes, then to an hour. Then increase to 60 minutes plus 20 minutes stretching and cool down. Then add another day until she is exercising six days a week.
    She has to look herself in the eye and say, "girl, I don,t care if you wanna or you don't wanna, I'm the boss of you and you're gonna, and I don't want to hear anymore whinging from you.Once we've been regularly exercising for an hour a day six days a week, we'll talk about it then. So put on your big girl pants and get moving."
    Then a girl goes to the store and buys the nicest smelling body wash and shampoo she can find, and she uses this only when she has done exercising.
    That's what this girl did, and it worked for me.
    Hope it does for you too.

    I too have fallen a bit on the exercising. Life seems so busy and just not getting all of my workouts in. Time to make more time for me in this busy season. emoticon Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, enjoy the wii and the new car. Park it far from entrances and you'll be safe from dings and get extra exercise.

    Oh-- enjoy your new Subaru!
    I had one of those and I loved mine. By the way, Subaru has the very best commercials on TV--
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Glad you are feeling better. This is a fun time of year, with much to do !! The weather in VT this morning was a mix of rain & snow, so we didn't drive into the gym. I have to admit that my motivation hasn't been well the past couple of weeks, so you are not alone. emoticon things will get better.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family, and for taking the time to make it a happy time for your Mom & Dad.

    Be safe in your new vehicle. emoticon emoticon
