Big Dreams, In or Out?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

W6D3 of C25K today and 1st time I ever did 2 days in a row. Normally, the program is every other day. However, Wednesday morning when I got up my knee gave in for just a moment, my toe had been ripped open again the night before AND I could not find my headphones. I spent time wondering if I was looking for excuses or listening to my body. I was dressed and ready to go and the missing headphones

Lessons in Food Journaling, The Runners Guide to Life and C25K

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had forgotten how quickly C25K ramps up the running in the 6th week. W6D1 in the books and ran 18 out of the 20 minutes and was totally excited. Part of the inspiration I’m sure, was finishing reading last night The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life by Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon. Being only in W6 was a bit embarrassed to have picked up this book, like I was calling myself a

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

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

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.

July 1st and lots of new beginnings and started worrying about my whole plan to keep it simple and focus on my 1 Thing. Was I taking on 2 much? Was I taking my eye off the ball? Was I letting myself down? It came clear to me when I was wogging through my Couch to 5K this morning. My plan was the main thing, my 1 Thing is attaining and maintaining my ideal weight. The first 3 things I

Snails, Big Box Stores, Motorhomes, ADD & My Ideal Health

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a suburban jogger, which means I am running on normal neighborhood sidewalks. I can pass a golf course, a Circle K market , an apartment complex and a chiropractor office on the same morning. And today there were lots of folks out there and had to step into the passing lane several times and everyone nods and says good morning and smiles at each other. This morning I noticed there were also a lot of snails and

10-Minute Trainer, Cardio and Not An Excuse to Be Found – Eat to Live Week 2, Day 6

 

 

 

 

 

 

The telephone in our bedroom is very tricky to hang up. Unless you line it up exactly, it is ‘off the hook.’ When Dylan called to let us know he was done with work last night, I did not hang it up exactly right. For the last 2 weeks I have been getting up pretty early to get my exercise over with before I could change my mind. This morning I chose to sleep another 45 minutes and asked Kevin to

Working on the Perfection Expectation by the Recovering Perfectionist

Saturday morning, Week 2 Day 3 of my Dr Fuhrman Eat to Live 6 Week Challenge and noticing how things are a bit different this morning. For one thing, Kevin is still home and sound asleep and so is Dylan who worked until 1:30 am this morning. I am the only one up. It is not a C25K day so did not roll out of bed and into running clothes and tiptoeing around instead. Still tweaking and refining my schedule to support the priorities of my One Thing – Ideal Health. And trying to hyper-ventilate by doing a few Saturday
