on the approach of spring

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

I love, love, love the new format of the start page. That said, today I found this on it:

?post=feel_better_and_get_fitter_by_sp
ring

I don't "twitter", "pin", "facebook" (I call myself a facebook voyeur, look but don't post), so I'm putting a tracker on my page to follow the 20-day challenge.

I find I'm not as successful when I create my own goals and challenges. I need a little push from my friends!

So. . . .who's in?

on February Goal Setting

Sunday, February 02, 2014

My goals are not unreasonable. . . . so here we go again:

Excercise 30min 5 days/wk emoticon
track all food NLT 5 days/wk emoticon
resulting in:
Fit into jeans 2/28 emoticon

So, one thing I did was to put the pilates classes on my calendar. I'm hoping to get 1-2 pilates classes/week and 1 yoga per week. As the weather improves (read wind dies down!) I'll get dogzilla back on the schedule!

  


On a wasted month

Saturday, February 01, 2014

First off, I don't make "resolutions" on the first of january. I do them most every day!!

That said, I created my goal board and when I'm on the site I review it. (PS I LOVE that feature). So. . . short term goals:

Stretch daily. . . maybe 10/31 days
fit into jeans by 1/27. . . no
track food 5/7 days. . . maybe 15 days
exercise 30min 5 days per week. . . maybe 12 days

Thus the title of my blog, "A Wasted Month". It's like the commercial about college, where will you be in 4 years? In this case, my goals were lofty and my results not so much.

So, February begins today (Happy B-day cousin D), and another month of opportunity.
February 28, I want my blog to read "on a Successful month".

    I agree that you should celegrate everything you did right this month! I wonder if you might just build some momentum if you picked 1 of those goals for the month--and be "mindful of the others. For example, what if your goal is to exercise 20 minutes everyday and do the food tracking when you think of it. Then maybe add something the next month. Hmmmm, I should try this maybe!

    Keep congratulating yourself on what you did right! Learn and ask questions about things that didn't go so well. emoticon

    If you are living your life, no month is wasted. Forget your 'goals' and enjoy your life! Life is for NOW. Not some point in the future, it never comes again. Live it, and enjoy it,
NOW, not at some nebulous point in the future.

on quick and easy meals

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

New Mexico makes it easy for me to grill most nights of the year. . . for us a perfect dinner is

Grilled trout (usually from about an hour away from here!) emoticon
grilled veges (I like summer squash with red peppers, garlic and cumin) emoticon

protein alternatives include: elk, chicken, salmon, pork
vege alternatives include: broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus, steamed green beans

Looking forward to the summer garden.

    How do you cook the brussels sprouts? I want to like them but haven't found a good way to cook them.

On day 1 of real life

Friday, June 14, 2013

So I'm calling today day 1 after recovery. Day 0 was the first day I didn't sleep most of the day and ate 3 normal meals.

Still on a med that is affected by calcium so meal planning is interesting

Took a 50 min walk (let's call it a stroll) and really felt the heat. Probably only about 75 or so but I'm guessing my adaptive systems are still a little under the weather.

BLC starts tomorrow. Fortunately first challenge is a no brained

Thanks for your concern while I was out of it!
