Bear has slipped back a bit- bringing him back to the vet’s today to hopefully stay in front of this- prayers please- he is my ring bearer…
Silvie playing in the pool with mom & dad….
Her smile makes my day!
Met with the minister- working out the ceremony, picked the music (above is song after vows- there will be 3 songs sung and instrumental to walk in), got pedi/mani’s, Linda is tanning, Karen is not!, got new earrings, slimmed down the menu, ordered food, made announcement, so we are almost there…
“Face Of Love”
until tonight my heart was just half full i'd never known the fruit which fed the soul but now i see what may put to rest my longing for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love in silence i feared my heart would remain words unheard inside a separateness of skin but now i know that the skin just veils the soul for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love so take my hand and knowing with it i also give my heart wanting never to be separate again let eternity begin if you were flame i'd allow myself to be consumed completely were you wind i would wish you pass through me but now i know that the skin just veils the soul for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love
Mattie bought the Fitspiration Journal for Kris for her birthday (available at Target). Lala thought it was cool and she got one, so did Darian. Kris gave one to Kenny to help him build strength and Karen showed Kay who picked one up. Why is it cool?
- Starts with a gratitude journal- people who are grateful are happier!
- Has a place for goals- have to know where you want to go to get there!
- Has places to track what you are doing or other health info.
- Has tips for food and exercise every day.
- Has a motivational quote.
- Has a place to track you stuff (workouts, recipes).
Why is this important…
“Habits are highly ingrained behaviors. They are almost automatic. Changing one habit is hard enough. Trying to change more than one at a time is often a recipe for disaster. So, despite the occasional example to the contrary, my advice is to focus on one habit at a time.”
Here’s the only problem: In the world of fitness, we still haven’t caught on. So when people decide they want to get into shape, they feel as if they have to do everything at once. Join the gym, check. Buy some new running shoes, check. Set the alarm for 4:30am, check. Cut out all the junk food, check. Eat more broccoli, check.
They mentally prepare themselves for an all-out assault on fitness and, after a few short days or weeks… splat!
Maybe this is why so many people who lose weight put it all back on. Instead of making fitness and weight loss a long-term, sustainable practice, they made it a short-term, inconvenient project.
Habit based coaching starts with a simple daily practice.
Based on your starting point, that practice might be to go for a 15-minute walk every day. It might be to take fish oil and a multivitamin each day. It might be to start the day with breakfast. (Of course, these practices can be scaled up or down).
Then, every two weeks, once the previous practice has become a habit, you can add another one. Each habit builds on the last until 6 or 12 months later, you’ve been transformed.
A journal helps you plan, check and see what is working and what is not, shows you your improvement, gives you a great place to stay organized (I put recipes and workouts in mine).
You don’t have to buy one (though this one is cool) you can use an app on your phone, use a plain notebook, download ones off the internet- the important thing is to start…even Silvie goes on a daily walk!
