Flexible to Frustrated to Fuming to Fixated With Fingers Crossed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flexible: Yesterday morning when I was ready to head out on my run, discovered the battery on my phone was dead. The C25K Program I use is an app (imagine that) which tells me when to walk, run, stretch etc. Now I suppose I could have written the intervals down on my hand and used my watch, however that has not always been a very safe choice for me. Being a bit uncoordinated, I’ve found it works best

Discombobulated, Testing My Committment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a hair appointment later this morning I knew I had to get out for my W5D3 of Couch to 5K before I left and walked into my office to find my iPhone battery completely dead. OK change of plans. I use the program on my phone for my run. Change of plans, when leaving my hair appointment, since I will be at the beach, will do my run right after my appointment. Drat, will making freshly blow dried straight hair get

Getting Things Done, C25K

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 2 of office organizing done and showing some real progress. I can walk in the door of my office without fear of tripping over boxes. I can see 95% of all the floor space and desk is 50% cleared off. Getting behind on everything else but project organize is going well. Committed last night to giving up Incredimail and going with Outlook : ( Not nearly as much fun, yet ever so much more efficient. Intending to finish all

Franklin Covey -The 5 Choices, Getting Things Done, The 1 Thing, Couch to 5K and Getting Organized

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spent most of the weekend in my Team Beachbody Franklin Covey training on The 5 Choices and it reminded me of why continual personal development is so critical to our success. When I discovered The 1 Thing concept, I made a number of changes in my life which have almost become habit. Studying the 5 Choices reminded me how reaching success involves more than just doing the 3 most important things first each day. There needs

Overcoming Doubt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning was the first day of Week 4 in my C25K Program. Definitely more running than walking now. And this morning for the 1st time I felt a tiny bit of hesitation in me. For a second even thought about putting it off for later today and then caught myself and got my running shoes on and headed out. The statement you never regret a work out you do, only those you don’t, is ringing in my ears right now.

Walking With Kevin, Shaping My Future and Eating Healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where I used to totally exempt myself from working out on the weekends, now I actually almost look forward to it. After just 1 weekend the new tradition is Kevin goes with me on Saturday and Sundays. He even asked first last night, do you want to go walking in the morning? Yeah. Up to 26 minutes today, 27 minutes tomorrow and Monday is Week 3 Day 1 of Couch to 5 K where the run intervals are

A Measure of My Committment, Ideal Health and Definition of Determination

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interested versus committed. An interesting thought. When you’re interested in doing something, you’ll do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed however, this means you will do it no matter what. Finding myself bouncing a bit between committed and extremely interested. For example, I say I committed to my ideal health, yet I have this little issue with 1 of my eyes I have pretty much been ignoring for a couple of months. Not a big deal, but a person committed to

Walking for my Freedom. Shrink Yourself

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning Kevin and I got up really late and to be honest I had decided it was too late to walk (don’t ask) and figured I had walked 1 day of the weekend already and blah, blah, blah. Thank goodness I had asked Kevin to walk with me today, yesterday. He walked into the office ready to go and well what could I do but go? So glad, he inspired me to get out there and go.

I Feel Good, Shrink Yourself and the Proper Timing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No rain this morning, darn it and finished W1D3 of C25K. Except for the Tuesday Toe Issue, this was a great workout week and I feel so good mentally about myself. Excuse me, while I spend a minute freeze-framing this sweaty, hot joy. OK, I’m back and sipping on my Tropical Vegan Shakeology which has 6 huge Swiss Chard leaves from my CSA added. Priority #1 Check. Priority #2 Check. Priority #3 in process. Have lots of running around

I’m Not on a Diet!!!! Unprocessed and Eat to Live and Eliminating Excuses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Diets do work. I know because I have done most of them and have lost weight, repeatedly. They all really do work. If you want to lose weight and don’t care about your health or about gaining all the weight back and more; pick a diet, any diet. They all do work. But if you’re truly interested in achieving and maintaining your ideal weight and you want to be healthy, you gotta give up diets,
