Still going...

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

I ditched my plans to go to the fitness center because I barely slept last night and was exhausted when I woke up. I just didn't feel like racing around this morning.

However, it was only 66 degrees outside at 6:30 am (instead of the usual 80) so TC and I did 4 miles on the road. It's got some good hills so it's a pretty good workout -- I registered 8848 steps.

the challenge has me energized. I want to do well so I am making better choices. If I check my steps at 7:30 pm and I need an extra thousand, and get my b*tt outside. I am talking back to sabotaging thoughts. I am recognizing them and am able to say, "Sabotaging thought, you are not the boss of me!"

All in all, I'm happy to be on this wave and plan to ride it to my ultimate goal!

    "You are not the boss of me" cracked me up. Kids always say that to each other and I often use those words on my husband. He likes to micro manage and when he gets out of line and smothers me; that is what I tell him.

    We are often on a parallel in some crazy way. Today it was the sleep issue. When your sleep gets interrupted so terribly, there is not much good to come after that. You just can't be prepared to fend off negativity when you can't think straight for lack of sleep.

    Keep up the good work, Vandal's out to wear the sash next week. emoticon

    Keep that GREAT inspirational attitude!! You got me going. I had no idea it was so nice outside this morning. I think you are quite a bit cooler up there, but it is still quite nice. I'm heading out for a walk. Still trying to find a good close trail. Heading over to Bona Dea now.

    I read a great blog about negative thoughts. I'll try to find it & send directions. You are doing great! Keep it up! I'll check in with everyone else soon.

    Make it a good one!!

    Sleep is oh so important! No need to push yourself too much when you are running on fumes! Have an awesome day!
