HAPPY SPRING!

I LOVE this time of year! The rebirth and renewal that happen always motivates and inspires me. I need it right now. I've been in a funk for a very long time. I want to live my life not sleepwalk through it. So it is time to put the wonderful longer days and warmer weather to use. I WILL LIVE this year!

Merry Christmas!

It seems that I'm still stuck in a rut. Nothing seems to be working long term. A lot of that is the mental blocks ...
HAPPY SPRING!

I LOVE this time of year! The rebirth and renewal that happen always motivates and inspires me. I need it right now. I've been in a funk for a very long time. I want to live my life not sleepwalk through it. So it is time to put the wonderful longer days and warmer weather to use. I WILL LIVE this year!

Merry Christmas!

It seems that I'm still stuck in a rut. Nothing seems to be working long term. A lot of that is the mental blocks I put in my own way. But I am going to work on those. I need to face and overcome these pests, boggarts, feelings so I can move forward once and for all.

Remember Make it fun!

CHANGE OF PLANS!

My old plans haven't been working lately like they have in the past. So for the next 12 weeks (11 now) I am going to relax and enjoy. I'm not going to track my food unless I feel like it. I'm not going to stress about burning X number of calories or getting in X number of fitness minutes. I'm tired and bored of the same old same old.

Here's my new plan.

Eat with a focus on healthy, whole foods as much as possible. Eat at home more. Take my lunch to work instead of eating out most days.

Exercise 5 days a week, 20 minute minimum. One day a week do a longer 50 - 60 min (or more) workout. Build up core/lower body muscles so I can start rock climbing again. So 2 days a week will include weights.

Relax... read, take a bath, journal gratitude's, or even try meditating. Learn to just be without having to be doing... something.

As my husband's work isn't going great he's going to start job hunting and for the first time in over 20 years I've agreed to let him look out of state. I love where we live now, but hate the government and taxes we have. So I think working on decluttering at least 1 hour a week to get ready in case we move is a good goal.

My plan: 1-2-3-4.

I have 4 areas I'm working on and will focus on doing just those 4 things consistently.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4

1. Exercise – Cardio 140 minutes a week or 10,000 steps a day… NO EXCUSES!
2. Track it all… every day! Every bite, every morsel, everything… NO EXCUSES!
3. Strength train 30-30-30 (30 wall/counter pushups, 30 calf raises & 30 seated leg lifts every day, building the strength moves until I can do 100 of each NO EXCUSES!
4. Clean it up! 15 minutes a day, every day of house cleaning/decluttering… NO EXCUSES!

I started in June 2006 on my own lost 30 lbs, joined SP April 2007 and have now lost a total of 40lbs. Although I am not a my ideal/goal weight I am much healthier and fit. I am upset with myself for backsliding this far. Right now I'm at the same weight (or a little above)

Hi again emoticon Thanks for the jump rope goodie emoticon Maybe I can use it in the garage if it's raining outside. We had our first "no rain" day today so I was finally able to go for a walk, my activity tracker says 2.3 miles but some of that was from walking around the house this morning. The rain is supposed to come back tomorrow and the extended forecast doesn't show another no rain day for quite awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I think we all feel the same things from time to time, that's why the support we get here is so important. emoticon emoticon

I love the idea of putting the jump rope in the middle of the living room! Either me or my husband would probably end up tripping over it and landing in the hospital - probably not a good idea after all. I do think walking before running, stepping over the rope before actually jumping IS a good idea. Before I left for the summer I was regularly walking 3 miles a day, hard to believe it seems so far now.

I'm still working out the kinks in my daily schedule though, it seems our new house is going to keep me busy for quite a while. I look forward to reconnecting with you again emoticon
