Happier Days have arrived (458)

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

I am so happy with myself today, I am so full of energy that I walked 8 miles. I will do my yoga later this evening.
Yes, I did have a donut on this " Fat Tuesday" but I had pre-planned for it and tracked it on my food tracker.
Since I got tired of making 2 different meals since my S.O doesn't like healthy foods. I now make my menus ahead of time and I implement our usual foods, but I have changed my portions, to fit into my healthy lifestyle. So now I no longer stress over meal time.
If he wants hot sausage... I eat mine without the roll and leave off the cheese.
If he wants a grilled cheese sandwich and soup for lunch I just eat the soup and have a piece of fruit. well you get the picture.
I also measure and weigh all the foods I eat... to keep within my limits. I always have fresh fruit and salad on hand, which I turn to when he orders his pizza or hoagies.

Begin Now (475)

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Joining Spark People I have found that there is good news for those of us that have lost " our way" fitness wise. Hopes of returning to fitness at midlife or later is not too late to embark, as long as we come back slowly. Now was the best time for me to commit to it, I am rested and restless and ready. My body which I have become estranged from is whispering to me. Let's get back together.

Don't do it if you Don't love it (479)

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I found that I love my treadmill, it's something I can do at home, whenever it suits me, it is always open unlike the gym, and I find it to be fun. The sweating and the mild pain afterward or even during is fun, all of it. It feels like play not work.
I also found I like exercises, like jumping jacks, squats etc, I love the feeling I get after a workout.
I found if it's not fun, I won't do it. You can't be quilted into lasting healthy behavior change. Should doesn't work, only want to works. I want to feel fit and healthy everyday.
When I first started Spark people getting off the couch was sometimes torture. But the weird thing one day it was tough and I just kept doing it and realized I don't hate it, and I kept coming back. That's how I started.
Oh no! am I addicted to exercise or the feeling it gives me? I'm betting both cause it is fun.
Be kind to one another, till my next post

    emoticon Same goes for "diet". I'm not going to stick to it if it's not something I enjoy. I have found a food plan that I can live with forever and I too, am addicted to my walking and my stability ball and it embarrasses me to write this...but my old Sweatin' to the Oldies and Stretchin' to the Classics videos plus all the other exercise videos that are available here on SP. Some are great and I've added them in for variety and some just didn't feel like something I wanted to ever do again.

    I wrote a blog once called "Square Peg in a Round Hole" and it was about this...not trying to force or guilt yourself into doing a workout that you don't like! I'm so glad you like your treadmill and other workouts! There are so many different workout types out there, no need to do stuff you don't like. I tried Zumba because it was so popular. Guess what? I hated it! Its a completely fine workout, but not for me! But thats ok, I have other workouts that I love.

Rock on with your bad self! emoticon

Sense of Progress (480)

Monday, February 10, 2014

I need to feel as though I am improving. So my plan of satisfaction is I set small goals to keep motivated. As I reach these small goals I move the yardstick ever so slightly. As I age I also adjust my expectations for my body's performance.
Although I notice I am improving on my endurance, and strength, it still isn't the same as when I was younger. I do feel more healthier and fit than I have in years. I love when a plan comes together and your body responds.
Be kind to one another
