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)

---~~~ I am Thankful for ~~~---

**The taxes I pay because it means
I am employed.
**The clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough food to eat.
**My shadow who watches me work,
because it means I am out in the sunshine
**A lawn that needs to be mowed,
windows that have to be washed
and gutters that need fixing because
it means I have a home
**The spot I have found at the end
of a parking lot, because it means
I am capable of walking.
**All the complaining I hear about
our government, because it means
we have freedom of speech.
** The lady in church who sings off-key
because it means that I can hear.
**The huge piles of laundry and ironing
because it means my loved ones are near.
**The alarm that goes off in the early
morning hours because it
means that I am alive.

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Friends

A friend is someone we turn to
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives
with beauty, joy, and grace.
And makes the whole world we live in
a better and happier place.

- Jean Kyler McManus -
