Hi there Journal & Friends,
Time for our TENTH Spring Challenge Update!! Only 3 more weeks to go, and it will officially be summer.
So, Weight Loss Warriors, how are you doing with the
Overall Goal of the Challenge?
"The goal of this challenge is to teach yourself to look at your new behaviors positively, to learn to be nicer to yourself and believe in yourself, to learn to enjoy healthy behaviors and learn some moderation. A little balance. It's important. More important to learn than the extremes - too much and deprivation."
Okay, on to my weekly check-in...
My Spring Challenge goals:
1. Every day for the next 13 weeks, do some kind of Exercise.
2. Every day for the next 13 weeks, drink a Greenie.
3. Check in every Saturday.
4. Tell one thing each week that I like about myself.
5. Save up to buy myself a fun Reward at the end.
Doing better, though disappointed that my walking is still not up to snuff. I'm having a lot of leg pain, and not sure if I should take the painkillers and walk, or if that is backwards, and I should wait til I am lighter until I put that much pressure on knees that are already blown. I just don't know... Anyone have any experience with that kind of thing?? I spent so long weaning off the painkillers, that I just hate to take them again. Yet, without them... no walking. Sigh... I'm open to bright ideas!
Getting back into the habit again. I made 5 out of 7 days. Friday night, I just plain forgot! One thing I noticed... the warmer the temperature is, the more I enjoy them. So I think it will be easy to continue all summer, though I think 5 or 6 days a week is more realistic for me.
One thing I like about myself:
I like that I have good taste in men... mwha ha ha ha!! When I told that to MyGuy, he said that was cheating, it was supposed to be about me. Then he told me to say: "I like that I am a loving and obedient wife"!!!!! Yep, he definitely has a mischievous side. :-) Dream on, honey, dream on!
For my Reward: Don't know if I will be able to save up enough for the goodie that I'd really like... but I keep adding to my glass teddy bear jar each week.
Remember, we are aiming for progress, not perfection.
From Dr Phil's book: "Get real with yourself."
My verse for today: "As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forevermore."
My quote for today: "You can be the hammer, making things happen, or you can be the nail that sits there and gets pummeled over and over. If you're starting to feel like a nail, it's up to you to keep your program moving forward. Gather yourself together, draw a line in the sand and refuse to give in to the doubts and temptation to give in or quit." --from Sparkpeople
Enjoy the Journey,
