Day 67 of 100 days of gratitude

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

My Spark Coach challenge today is to toot my own horn...so here goes:

I'm setting a minimum of 7500 brisk steps daily and aiming for 10,000 brisk steps (7,000 or 8,000 at a time without stopping) almost daily. I have 3 days in a row and I'm proud, but very tired.

I'm grateful is that I live where there are lots of different routes to keep my interest and no traffic. I'm also grateful that I am retired and can take this large chunk of tiime out of my day to strive for this. When I owned a business & worked 12-14 hrs/day, I just couldn't pull this off.

I'm having trouble eating enough and falling again into that problem of no weight loss due to inadequate calories. (8 yrs in a row..you'd think I'd learn how to do this!) I'm searching for healthy food. I have been soda free for 8 out of 10 days (I caved in on our road trip for Thanksgiving & had soda.) Am in my 3rd day soda-free after returning.

A big thank you to SP and other friends checking up on my "behavior." Keeps me motivated.

    Toot toot!! Good for you...literally! LOL.

    You're right. It takes time to get in all of those brisk steps and fitness minutes. Right now I am making oodles of pottery and selling it on the weekends. My life is centered around my work and I know I couldn't find the time to make even 7,000 steps a day, but I will find the time soon. By mid December I am DONE!

    In terms of finding healthy things to eat, I find that the more I watch health, wellness and food documentaries, the more it steers my eating habits towards the good.
