I think have turned a corner about going to the gym. I've gone for years and had long streaks of going religiously and long streaks of not (long streak like over a year). My latest obstacle has been feeling guilty or having to rush because I fee... Read more

Work got in the way of my lunchtime plan for water jogging at the pool. Grrrr. But I was able to sneak out to get to the gym by 4 and do a quick workout in the pool - water jogging with weights and kick board - then went to restorative yoga clas... Read more

I'm finding it easier to move and exercise more and more. Sunday, my husband and I walked about 8 miles/15,000 steps. Then Monday, I went to a class at the gym before work called barre fit, then a restorative yoga class after work. This morning,... Read more

Got my 10,000 steps today. In that 45 min I was able to eke out a small run. Muscles tired from yesterday's activity and treadmill/elliptical workout. I'll see what tomorrow brings!... Read more

Boy do I feel old today! I woke up with a stiff neck and upper back (on top of lower back pain). I think it was because over the weekend I did some favorite yoga poses that I haven't done in a long while. I just did the best I could and breathed... Read more

I'm learning how to manage caloric intake better. Using the food tracker helps me know how much I've consumed, also the analysis helps me determine how much protein, fats and carbs I've had. Doing well on fats lol but not as much protein as I'd ... Read more

Feels like whatever I was battling over the week has passed. I've had my fill of sickness this year. I was down for 2 weeks last month with bronchitis and I'll be damned if I relapse into that again! It's day 4 of my work health challenge and I ... Read more

Less hectic day today than yesterday. Both days I went over my allotted 1550 calorie intake, but not by much. I've noticed that afternoon snacking at work has probably been a habit because I notice its hard to get thru the afternoon without thin... Read more

Getting and staying motivated
Thursday, June 09, 2016      3 comments

I think I'm always motivated. Motivation is not really my problem, it's just that I want to do so many things I can't stay motivated to do them all, so doing one thing doesn't stand a chance! In the last couple of weeks I've slowed my roll and ... Read more
