Chee Hoo!

It's FRIDAY! It's my no work out day. It's my no walk day. It's my eat whatever I want day. It's jeans day at work. It's Starbucks day. It's Dunkin' Donuts day. It's even PAYDAY!!! I actually couldn't wait to get up this morning!! Chee Hoo!

I cannot believe I have been working out and walking and eating healthy for three weeks. That has to be a record for me. Yes, there are some mornings when the last thing I want to do at 5:30 a.m. is yoga or pilates...but I'm doing it.

There are plenty of days when I get home from work and the last thing I want to do is change my clothes, bundle up and head out into the frigid air to walk....but I'm doing it!

Many evenings I have no interest in preparing a healthy balanced dinner for myself....but I'm doing it.

I am not to the point where these things are a positive habit for me yet. In fact, I still find it all a big pain in the butt....but I'm doing it.

My neck and upper back issue has caused me to rethink my workout. If I didn't, I might have quit. Instead I took out the arm and shoulder dumb bell workout until my neck and upper back are more tolerant of the yoga and pilates. Once they are, I will add the arm work back in. I did add some leg work on the days I do pilates too.

I am really looking forward to spring when I can be working out with the doors and windows open, and I can pile on the sunscreen, throw on my hat and walk until I want to come in rather than having to come in because my eyes are tearing, my nose is running and my face and everything running down it is frozen solid!

If you made some changes....healthy eating, working out or other changes for the New Year...how are you doing? Need a Chee Hoo or some encouragement? I'm here for you. :)

One of my healthy changes was to cut my sugar addiction. I haven't had sugar in my morning coffee or my afternoon/evening teas for 3 weeks now! Like you, I'm doing it! Three weeks to form a new habit and I'm getting comfortable NOT adding the sugar, the honey, the maple syrup in my beverages!

Congratulations--way to go! This is wonderful! Keep it up!

I have been scaling back on my meal portions and have lost a bit of weight. I have a dr appt next week so I hope he's as pleased as I am.

Sounds like you're doing very well. Keep up the good work!

Hi Kathy, I have stoped buying biscuits or cakes and I don't look at sweets and I am beginning to feel a little better around my middle. My next move will be smaller portions. I am tryimg to do this sensibly because otherwise I will give up.
Love Jillxxx

I've been getting my recommended amounts of fruits and veggies every day. I'm also taking extra Vit D3 and B-12 prescribed by my Dr. The biggest thing I'm working on now is trying to reduce the salt in my diet. I've had ringing in my ears for some years but it's getting worse lately (could it be all the veggies!? nah, couldn't be.)

Am really proud of myself for this first month of 2010. Have cut back on sugar and more importantly, reduced my stress level by taking things as they come, or don't come. A Chee-Hoo!! for you and a Hoo-Chee for me!

You crack me up - you couldn't wait to get up today.....
I hope it was as fantastic as it should have been with no workouts and treats!
You deserve it girl!
chee hoo!

Well that sounds like a really, really great day!!!

...and about the TV shows, I don't really like to watch violent stuff either. I can't even watch "Intervention" because it is so sad. I guess I prefer to live in my own fantasy world- and that is okay with me.
