I feel good!

Sunday, February 17, 2008

I finally slept well last night. My thighs are still hurting from stretching. I wouldn't have believed that stretching hurts more than exercising. I guess I never stretched the right way. I love this site. It teaches me things I never knew and the right ways to do things I thought I knew (that's a tongue twister). Sometimes I think I know everything. I guess that comes from being a mother and not wanting them to know you don't know something. I would tell them when I was wrong, but I tried to never be wrong. I'm finally getting over that. I'm getting to old and tired to know everything. I try to listen more than talk (difficult for an Italian).

I've been cleaning my apartment and getting rid of stuff we don't need so when we move it will go quicker and cheaper than before. What the heck do I even need all this crap for? I feel the same way about my weight. I will be much quicker if I don't carry all this weight around. Plus, it's easier to pack smaller clothes.

Today I will exercise and stretch since I took the day off yesterday. I need to make better carb choices. It's tough with fruits having so many carbs. (what the heck is that about?) So far, everyday I've been in the healthy or above category. I love writing down what I eat and how much I exercise. I am one of those obsessed people who loves lists and to cross things off. I would write things down I did that weren't on the list so I could cross them off.

Sorry for going on. I tend to ramble and go from one subject to another. My husband sometimes has a hard time focusing on my conversations. When I'm done talking about a certain thing I just change over to something else and he thinks it's about the same subject. Oh well, like Popeye says, "I yam what I yam" mmm yams sound good. I bet they have a lot of carbs. I'll go with the spinach instead. I loves me spinach.

Hope everyone does well today. If you need some encouragement give me a holler. I'm much better at motivating others than I am myself. Isn't that usually the way.

    I am just like you in I have no problem motivating others, I just don't take my own advice. Well his year I have changed all that. I know what it takes to get "fit and healthy" (I always say this rather than "lose weight"), and I am going to do it for me! Good job on doing thos stretches!
