Talk to someone on the fringe

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Today my goal is this:

Take time today to engage someone on the outside of your usual circle. Is there someone where you work with whom you would not normally talk? Strike up a conversation. If you know everyone at work, give a smile to someone who looks like they are not having the best day. Sometimes that is the only outside acknowledgement they may receive today. It only takes a moment, but it can mean the world to someone.

    I spent time with one of the substitute teachers today. I enjoy talking and getting to know new people.

Counting down to wellness

Monday, November 17, 2014

Everyday, I am going to try to post something positive for the day. A good thing that I am doing, a thought, etc. Surrounding myself with positive as we go into the winter months and SAD takes it's toll.

So today, my goal is to make something to give away. I will edit this later to show what happened.

I made lunch today to share with someone I work with.

She was very appreciative.

    I missed the 18th and 19th, but what I did those days was on the 18th I made a list of what I was thankful for with my job and on the 19th I looked through old photos and spent some time reflecting on those I love.

Could this be the time I get it right?

Monday, October 13, 2014

I am actually afraid to type this email. I am doing really well right now. I am in Week 4 of an exercise challenge here in Sparkpeople. I have been consistently walking three times a week with my family since August! I had to buy new walking shoes because I wore the old ones out!! Holy moly! I am so scared of jinxing the whole thing, but so proud of how far it has lasted. I have lost 14 pounds since July. I weigh in every week expecting the yoyo and the scale keeps showing a smaller number. I guess I just need to keep faith in myself and keep working my plan. Good luck to everyone else out there too!!

    You are not jinxing anything. You are being consistent and focused. And, a little weight at a time leads to more over a longer period. But, you have momentum. You like what you are seeing, so you'll keep it up!

So, Keep up the great work!

Keeping fit is great!

Monday, September 08, 2014

I got the Fitbit and I have a lot of good things to say about it. I have had it almost a week. It really makes you think about how much you sit. I think it is making me move more just so I have a happy little face on the silly thing. But if that is what it takes to get there, then I will. I still have not hit my 10k steps in one day. But I was almost there last night. So that is the next goal and then we will work toward a new goal. Good luck and Happy Monday!

    Good for you! I love my Fitbit and usually meet or exceed my goal of 10,000 steps a day. It is a great motivator!

Walking to win

Saturday, August 30, 2014

My husband and I both have a lot of weight to lose. The kids just went to their annual physicals and they were told that they are getting to heavy and need to break the cycle before it becomes a problem. We sat down as a family, made the hiking schedule. Put it in our calendars as an appointment and stuck to it. We are walking 60 minutes three times a week to start. We will add more days after two weeks of sticking to it.
