I was VERY active this weekend and yet because I did not do a structured DVD or run I keep feeling guilty. The way this works is I will be sitting at my desk and I will think.."Self your such a bad self because you didn't work out this weekend." This thought flits across my consciousness leaving a feeling of guilt in its wake. The thing is I rode for an hour and half and I went on a 45 minute walk. Both of those are exercise. It’s my mind playing tricks on me. Feeling guilty is a habit. One that I am GOING to break.
I did really well this weekend. I got everything done I wanted. I did not stick low carb but I didn't PIG out either. As far as this morning I managed to get up at 4:30 but am sorry to say I didn't get my callanetics or run in. I did however do some gardening and completed a prodigious amount of cleaning that was left over from my whirlwind weekend. I will riding this evening so I will get a workout in today.
The goal I am working on this week is to chew each bite 30 times. I read a really interesting article about how chewing your food a lot helps release the foods nutrition that might otherwise be missed as its ushered along our digestive tract. These people took it a bit far...chewing 100 times O.o... not sure how that is possible I struggle with 30 the automatic swallow response is powerful. Of course chewing more means you are eating slower, get full faster and hopefully eat less. It’s a win win!
I will be posting my weekly goals on a static page that you can access on the Goals button of the menu bar. I will keep update progress on my ongoing goals and remove completed ones after awhile.
You may notice I have added a Picture button. I saw another blogger have a picture a day goal. It could be of anything, whatever caught her eye. I thought it a great idea. Secondly it will keep me open and observant of my surroundings with eyes open to beauty. Additionally I will break in my new red digital camera Huzby bought me for our anniversary. So I'm pretty excited about it!
