Time to re-jig my Spark life
Monday, April 24, 2017
I'm joining my good Sparkfriend 1ZIPPYC in re-vamping my goals and pulling myself up where I've slipped.
My plan is : -
- Be more consistent with water intake - I don't do badly but perfect would be better.
- Master a new fitness feat - want to try to do a well formed Plank and turn it into an 8 week streak - but I'll have to see how that goes.
- Stop flopping onto my couch when nothing else pressing is on the cards. I'm a terrible couch potato SO I'm going to make a point of moving every 30 minutes - once workouts and chores are done - either moving round the flat or taking a quick walk outside to the shops or the sea depending what takes my fancy.
- More enthusiasm with formal workouts or walking and adding more ST to what I do daily. It's easy for me to walk by the sea every day - 3 minutes away - but I also have rolling countryside to walk in and the ups and downs would tax me more. I intend to do that with the new walking group that I've joined and as an extra I'm going to try a membership with a local table tennis group set up for people like me who 'could but don't'.
I weighed myself this morning and find - with no great surprise - that I've gained 5 pounds over the winter. I always know when I've reached that point by my clothes and it's yet again time to catch myself and be stricter about what I put in my mouth. I've become careless on portion control and so it's time to stop 'eyeballing' and using overfilled tablespoons as measures and get back to my kitchen scales.
I've also taken on board a Secret of Success from SPfriend, NEW-CAZ - 'Always Show Up - You'll Feel So Much Better' regarding how much difference movement - be it walking or working out - makes to your day.
It's SO good to have inspiration from Spark itself and particularly from my good Spark friends
