Staying strong

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Yesterday I did good!

And yes, I'm patting myself on the back. Stuck to my points values, even tracked it in the nutrition log (I was in the right range for calories, over in fiber, and under in fat - there is some tweaking that needs doing). I drank plenty of water, and used it as my "go-to" when I felt like munching.

I tried to do some Wii fit, but man did it make me feel old! (In reality, just exceedingly out of shape). I managed about 1 minute of basic step before twisting my ankle and popping my hip out (But I kept going, once I got my hip back in place). Really though, I'm letting it make me laugh. I won't let it stop me from doing more today, and I won't get down on myself, since that just brings me down and I stop functioning. I remember when, in 9th grade, I took my first jazz class. We did this whole section of crunches - eight in each of 10 positions, then 4, then 2, then 1. The first time I couldn't get through it, and was just laughing at how bad I was. Within a few weeks I was doing the whole thing and singing along to the music. I was in better shape when I started that jazz class than I am now, but the lesson remains. You're not good when you start something new. But you get good the more you work on it. I can't be afraid to be bad, because then I'll never get good.

    Great job!

    Yes, I like to laugh at myself on Wii Fit, too. (Apparently I am lucky I am able to walk, according to its comments on my balance!) I think the stepping on the Wii is a wonderful to prepare your body for more. And once you're able, you can switch to Free Step for 10-, 20- or 30-minute sets while you watch tv, and set your own walking pace. Likewise, you can build up to Free Run.

    Congratulations on staying on track!!!! Thank you also for the reminder . . I need to get out of my "comfort zone" and try something new and then stay with it. I did that with my yoga!! Haven't been practicing like I should, toe problem (broken?), so a little hard to do. Time to get back to it!!

    Have a blessed day!!!
