Hello Journal & Friends,
Time for another Hottie update!
But first, I find it interesting that in the last 30 minutes, I have read the same idea from THREE different sources: that we need to do it OUR OWN WAY. Not follow along like a lemming, but tweak whatever plan or program we are doing, personalize it, to fit our OWN life and preferences. And if what we are doing needs a change in emphasis, then GO FOR IT!
The first was a great guest post by Rita, on Mizfit Online, HERE.
Then there was my friend Millie, who is fairly recent to blogging, HERE.
And last but not least, my pal Deb, HERE.
All these brave souls are blazing their own trails, and I applaud them!
On to my update... I'll make it short. Not much to say, actually.
I only had 3 goals to work on (calories, exercise and vitamins) and I am FINALLY starting to see them turn around.
Yesterday I started back with my Rabata (adding Tabata timing to Rebounding). And I totally loved it! My hand didn't throb or anything, and I did quite a bit of waving it all around! :-)
The other two... gaining ground. I feel like I went Splat! and have now gotten up, dusted off, and am feeling better and making progress in the right direction.
I have decided not to feel discouraged about the Splat, and just keep plodding away. Each day is a new day, another chance to make healthy choices. Another day to learn, improve and keep going.
I am working on the solution to what I wrote about yesterday... it's not all solved yet, but just knowing it's in the works is encouraging. I see light at the end of the tunnel!
Today's Peek at the Past (It was about being open to new ideas in order to solve the problem, and that is what I am doing now... good fit!)
From Day 80, Oct 28, 2009:
All I can say is WOW! I asked for suggestions yesterday, and in response I got so many great ideas and points of view. It really did help to open up my thinking to new ways of looking at the situation.
