didnt read the signs

Friday, January 23, 2009

Internal Signs - the week ended and suddenly I felt like I had the flu. Cold body, achy tired. Well I only slept four hours...now that I have rested I no longer feel achy.

Speakng of signs, I got my commemorative Obama sticker from Move on .org - you can get one too!

I am so very excited about the listening to the news since the inauguration. I have hope again and was delighted to hear someone say that public service is a privilege.

Going to bed in ten minutes. Cinderella sparkerella that;s me.

Sleep

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Yesterday I made up for a short night the evening before. Procrastination is a big factor in my getting 7 or eight hours of rest.

What am I willing to trade for rest?
This morning, now that Ive rested the choice seems obvious. Get more sleep.

    I was looking for Cherie Calbom's detox book at the library but found this one: SLEEP AWAY THE POUNDS: Optimize Your Sleep and Reset Your Metabolism for Maximum Weight Loss, by Cherie Calbom MA with John Calbom MA. I may blog about it as I read. I am more sleep deprived now that I am not working than I was before. It's my own choice. By night time I'm usually feeling and moving better. When I wake up in the morning, we start the process all over again. So if I don't go to bed, I won't wake up and have to start over getting all the kinks out??? I don't think that will work, ha.

Borg and being assimilated

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Ah, I am usually categorically against being similar. In fact, I like being odd. But, I feel a good fit with sparkers and have come to the conclusion that I have been assimilated.

I think I feel like part of the community. For a traveler who usually feels like an outsider, that is a big deal. A good thing then.

Today I pondered joining the ranks of video exercise fans to Chalene's Turbo Jam. Perhaps I am only partially assimilated. I do not jam to group exercise, and abhor the fit channel.

There is nothing wrong with group exercise. I tried an aerobics class once and was always a beat behind, moving the wrong direction and wanting to run! Dance, to me, has to come from within, and doing what some one else is doing feels insincere. Who cares? I guess I do. Well then, perhaps in six months I will have adjusted enough to overcome my discomfort and can engage in a bigger network of healthy folk.

    I've wanted to do TaeBo but don't want to kill myself. I asked Jibbie how she does it. She doesn't worry about doing it perfectly. Just get up and move. ESPECIALLY if you are doing it at home where no one knows or cares what you are doing anyway. How dumb is that to get bent if you aren't in sycn at home!
Why do we care what anyone else thinks? Why? I wonder if the happiest people are the ones who enjoy life without worrying what others think. Dancing from within.
Spark is about variety. No sameness here. Different eating plans and exercise, different goals, terrific support.

    I tend to be an exercise loner, except for hiking/biking with mah honey and the martial arts class.

Inigo Montoya week

Monday, January 19, 2009

Tomorrow I'll wax on about the Borg, but today I am Inigo Montoya. two weeks to go in January and I have but one thought of revenge on the fad diet. Prepare to die, habits.

Other diets set me back. Unrealistic goals. ("Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my motivation. Prepare to die.)

Other diets ignored sodium. ("Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my electrolyte balance. Prepare to die.)

Other diets... I just like prancing waving an imaginery sword around the living room saying, ("Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my waistline. Prepare to die.)

That character NEVER GAVE UP. He was stabbed in the chest for crying out loud, and he dug down into his motivation. PRANCE WITH ME. GRAB A BROOM. "Hello. our name is Inigo Montoya. You killed our motivation. Prepare to die.)

VICTORY IS OURS!

In case you can't recall, this is from the Princess Bride. Good family flick, with the exception of that scene....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3

    This is funny and clever. I followed the link to youtube for context. Motivating, too. I like it.
