Tuesday, September 03, 2013      3 comments

Lesson learned. If I put off exercising, somehow it just doesn't happen. Secretly (or not so secretly maybe) it is not my favorite thing to do. I would rather curl up with a good book. But if I make it a priority to get it done early, before... Read more

Is it possible to eat healthy at the fair? I believe so. Today, I will make it so. First, bring an ice cold water bottle. Second, pack a healthy trail mix with nuts, whole grain cereal, and a little bit of dark chocolate. Third, seek out a ... Read more
Scale Stress
Saturday, August 31, 2013      1 comments

I have not weighed myself in over a week. In fact, I plan to put away the scale when I clean the bathroom today. Why? Because it stresses me out. When I get on the scale and it does not say what I want it to say, I find myself feeling defeat... Read more

I really do not like exercise until after I do it. Then I love it because I love the way I feel afterward. I have a 3 week streak going of exercising at least 90 minutes a week. Today, I have planned to use my recumbent bike. It is rainy and... Read more
This is a first.....
Thursday, August 22, 2013      3 comments

Last night, I did not go to bed until 3:40 a.m. I needed to get up at 6:00 a.m. It was the first time in quite a while I have not gotten my rest. Usually, when this happens, I overeat all day. I guess I believe I am hungry....that I won't fe... Read more
Anit-Procrastination Live-It
Wednesday, August 21, 2013      3 comments

Today, I web-searched procrastination; since I am such a pro at it, I wondered if there could possibly be anything more to know about it! I found a website called the Anti-Procrastination Diet. I read it and thought it was a pretty good idea. ... Read more

Actually complete upper body strength training today
Sunday, August 18, 2013      2 comments

I decided today just to watch a video about upper body strength training; figured it would be a warm-up to watch and then participate later. It was a trick, I found out....I tricked myself, I guess. Next thing you know, I think, "Hmmm.....this... Read more
Just so tired
Friday, August 16, 2013      4 comments

Tired, getting enough sleep, eating right. Can't figure it out. Drinking water like I should. I know sometimes that can make you tired if you don't drink enough water. Guess I will go to bed. Maybe it is just time to call it a day, read awh... Read more

Too busy.....no good. Exercising will give me more stamina, so I will have more energy to accomplish what I need to do. Too tired.....no good. Exercise will give me more energy. Too out of shape....no good. Exercise will help get me... Read more

Back at it again! Pretty proud of myself too. I am no quitter! Visualizing myself today chosing healthy options, back to 3 mini-meals with protein always with a healthy carb choice (such as fruit or whole grains), and 3 snacks with protein an... Read more

Have been sick for 8 weeks now, and I am on my third antibiotic. Dr. says I cannot exercise with this one because it is known to cause tendonitis! I had just gotten into the swing of exercising every day. Only 6 more days of this antibiotic a... Read more
Quick meal ideas

Loved the SparkCoach reminder of the plate method and that "home-prepared" meals can be faster than fast food. Great northern beans mashed with peppers and tomatoes, sprinkled with cheese and nuked, tuna, whole wheat bread, mayo, pickle-relish,... Read more

I noticed the last time I posted a blog was in 2010! It is now 2013. Wow. What happened? I also read an article today regarding putting yourself on your priority list. It reminded me that I am one of those people who give to everyone else, ... Read more
