Chapter 16, Day 16

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Another week of blogging gone by since my last blog post. Over this time I was fighting a cold, and not exercising more than 10 minutes a day most days. And not eating right, using my tiredness and work deadlines as an excuse.

Today is the start of another Fall Challenge week. Perfect timing....as I am feeling better and will get out for a walk on this cloudy, but mild temperature day.

Breakfast was 80% healthy.....just couldn't resist some extra carbs and fat from a toasted sourdough roll with real butter. It gives me all the more reason to lace up and get out for my walk.

Feeling much, much better
Love the start of a new opportunity -- a week, a day, an hour, or even a minute!
The Fall colors around here are spectacular this year....I am enjoying them all.
More than half way home now, with getting through the "temporary project" for client.
Replaced the battery in my SPAT....good to go!

Get back on track with my food choices.
Advance the Fall Challenge plan.
Client work

Wishing you a healthy and fit weekend! Ditto for me! emoticon

Walked an hour....a slug of a walk....guess I'm a little run down still from my cold. Now I just need to stay the course with food choices for the rest of today.

    Sorry to hear that you were sick. I hope you feel 100 % soon. You are so right it's a new week and the challenges and mistakes of last week are done so we just have to put them behind us and push forward to make the best of this new week. emoticon on getting a head start with that by getting that walk done. I hope your food choices were good. emoticon emoticon

Chapter 16, Day 11

Monday, October 20, 2014

Hmmmm. Lost a whole week's blog. Not good. Obviously lost my health and fitness focus.

Got out to walk 2 hours each on Saturday and Sunday. Eating choices could have been better. Must rally to have a stronger last half on the Fall Challenge. Likely I can't lost 10% body weight, the goal, but I can lose maybe 5%.

Busy days these days with client work. Still, one must take good care of one's health. And get proper sleep rest.

New day of opportunity
Exercise is going well again

Stay the course with food plan and exercise
Client work

Wishing you a productive, healthy and fit Monday!

Chapter 16, Day 3

Sunday, October 12, 2014

Goofed off yesterday. A full day of no client work, although it was not what I intended, but very satisfying. I will hold onto that thought today as I try and get through my client work "to do" list.

First frost last night. Think my rosemary plant was spared.....time to move it into the house.

Eight hours of quality sleep.
Crisp sunny Fall day to enjoy my morning walk.
Streak of 1 day re health and fitness.....great, hope I turned the corner.
Healthy leftovers for dinner.
A quiet, peaceful Sunday.

Stay the course with Food Plan
Walk 60 minutes
Client work

Wishing you a healthy, fit, peaceful Sunday!

Chapter 16, Days 1 & 2

Saturday, October 11, 2014

Welcome, Chapter 16! Though I missed your first day, which went poorly, it is not a commentary on our relationship over the 100 days. Keep the faith; I will, too!

I will NEVER give up on fitness and health. I know its benefits, even if I can't execute the Program perfectly every day, or even every week.

12 hours of restful sleep (surely needed it after an 80 hour workweek)
Enjoyed my walk immensely today....it is a cool, bright day with clouds and blue skies.
Granddaughter arrives home in 20 minutes.....have a quick visit planned on my way home from friend's. I can't wait to see her.
Excited to cook a healthy delicious meal today....coldcut sandwiches over part of this past week has grown very old.

Stay the course with Program
Take friend some homemade blue prize winner split pea soup and drugstore supplies while she is recovering from surgery.
Cook! Yay!
Client work....bringing temporary project to a close; I will NOT accept any additional tasks....while I have appreciated the work, I am SO DONE with this. It has been like a contractor's job in which the customer says, "oh, can we add this? That?" I don't like to say "no" but I've decided I like its sound: "NO!"

Wishing us all a healthy, fit, weekend. Let's find the warrior within! emoticon

    Welcome to your next 100!
Thanks for sharing your positive, upbeat attitude, I can always count on you for that. You have your share of down days, but they don't keep you down, and you always seem to see the bright side and the next step ahead of you.
We can do this. emoticon

    Good to hear all is well. No is a good word unless it comes with more money to be worth a Yes. I decided to get some sleep and I slept 9 hours yesterday. We both need to continue to get the sleep both to keep healthy and to loss weight.
