6/4/13 Excuse Busters

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Today on Spark Coach the challenge is to bust your excuses with positive affirmations and mantras. The mantra I use the most is at the end of many of my blogs. (Do you think I can think of it now!!?!) I also like positive affirmations. I try to use them daily.

Negative self talk does sneak in to my mind on occasion. I really try to fight the negative self talk and thoughts. Sometimes just clearing my mind with a nice long walk helps.

I visited a friend in the hospital today and used the walk from the parking lot and around the outside of the hospital as a good way to exercise. I also took 5 flights of stairs. My knees were a little sore as yesterday I wogged (thanks Carrie for this word) a little and took 10 flights of stairs. Anyway, I don't want to do too much, so my knees get worse. Especially the one that hasn't been operated on yet. (Which I hope doesn't happen for a long time!) They are much better since I have lost 90 pounds since 2010. It doesn't show that much on my tracker, but that is because I didn't join SP until February 24, 2011.

I am having a massage today. I really need it. My muscles are really sore from all the exercise I got yesterday and the stairs I took yesterday and today. I went to Walmart this morning and shopped, so did a little walking there, too. I don't go as fast as when I walk outdoors, but it is NEAT exercise as Coach Nicole would say.

So I am challenging myself to bust excuses to exercise or eat healthy right now. I am going to have a healthy lunch and sit and enjoy it slowly. (I eat way to fast!)

Hope you all have a great day!

    I relate to the knee problems and need to take heed of taking it easy on them after being on them enough for the pain to become painful. I have had partial knee replacement on one so far.
    The message sounds like a good relaxing time and hope you enjoyed every minute of it today.

    one of the ladies in our group at the beach last week was recovering from knee replacement surgery. She had both done, but 10 weeks apart. Walking was not a problem. Stairs are still a challenge for her.

    please take care...don't push yourself too hard! Dropping the weight is the best thing for you - and you are doing GREAT with that! Keep up the good work!
