See it, do it.

Putting my extra bedding up this morning, I stepped up on a stool to put a blanket away. Stepping down, I decided that felt good, so why not do a few more. That got 30 reps of stair steps done in just minutes in the course of my day. Later, while waiting on eggs to cook, I did some squats. A lot of my best exercise comes when I see a short opportunity, and step up to it.

Taste and See!

We know that those who eat slow give their bodies time to realize satiety and eat less. I eat alone a lot and find this a challenge. Here are two ways I slow down:

1. Look at my bite before I put it in my mouth. Realize what it is and looks like. Be grateful for the benefit I am about to receive.

2. Chew for a count of 20-25, noting taste and texture.

I find I eat more slowly and actually enjoy what I am having.

Set New Goals to Build a Record of Success

I have learned that I too often set goals too high. Constant failure to make the mark discourages me and I fall away from trying. Now I set goals that are attainable, see that I can easily do that, then add a little until it becomes a challenge. I sit at that level until that, too, is easy; increasing in small increments to make it a challenge again. This practice is protecting me from discouragement so I can stay the course. Start small. Build big! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Protect My Heart

Today make the choice that will protect my heart from struggle with regret, doubt and feelings of failure. When I remember that and do it, I make choices through the day that lead me to a successful outcome.
