Happy First Day Of Spring!!!
I have a new tradition for the 1st day of Spring! I got a really
ugly beautiful white elephant gift this year that is a ceramic plate with flowers and butterflies on it. I loved it and decided I’d make lemon bars on the first day of Spring and put them on my plate! I’ll take a picture for sure. It’s the little things, right? (: Last post I was “post play” and I look at that last picture of me and I look very tired! I’m slowly feeling like my normal self. Being in charge of the play was similar to running a marathon I decided, only harder. It took everything out of me! I’m glad it’s over and I don’t think I’ll do it again, but I’d like to… I told my husband that if I didn’t do a play I should do a fitness competition instead! Another crazy thing I’ve always wanted to do. I found a great blog called honeywerehealthy.blogspot. She’s close to my age and just did a competition. She has great information on everything I’d need to know. We’ll see (: My husband gave me a compliment yesterday and said you always do well at whatever you do. I tried to tell him that doesn’t everyone do that? And he said no. A lot of people live by the NEVER TRY NEVER FAIL motto. That’s from the movie ROBOTS. Wise words to live by! So…if I DID do a fitness competition, I wouldn’t fail, right? O.K. last post I said I was doing a 4 day FAST!! I did it. It may sound crazy, but I felt so out of whack that it made me feel better, eventually. The 1st day was the hardest because you know you still have 3 days left. I felt a little light headed on day 2 (imagine that?), but day 3 and 4 were fine with fruit, veggies, and protein. It gave me motivation to keep up the healthy eating. I feel much better. Weekends are the hardest! So, my advice with this FIRST day of Spring is to sit down and make NEW goals for yourself. Goals that are SMART! Think about those 5 things as you set your goal and of course write down a REWARD. That’s the BEST part! And if you mess up, reroute yourself and try again. I failed a little bit in February and March with my ONE treat day a week goal. Oh well. Starting now I’m back on! Only candy at movies too! During play week I was eating anything and everything. Here’s a new favorite SONG that is perfect for your SPRING running. Watch the video. The guy is even running on a treadmill. I love it! I’ll end with two photos as well. These pictures were taken within 20 minutes of each other. Right after my workout and then after a quick shower and change! Not much goin’ on with the hair. (: Have a wonderful weekend! Our family is getting ready to go out of town and I couldn’t be more excited!! Relaxation, Happiness, Fun. I do like to work too! That’s for Rob (: P.S. I cleaned the mirror after the 1st photo! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozsmSlvGHv4
