A nice bright and sunny day has greeted me. Tonight’s plan is to go out to dinner, but what we’re going to do is to drop in on a new sushi restaurant and if they turn us away, we will take a nice walk around that neighborhood in search of a new haunt that we haven’t tried before.
The original plan was to run around Diamond Head and then have a nice dinner, but today is Lei Day and Waikiki will be packed, which translates to bad traffic and stressfully hunting for a parking spot.
May is here!!!
Getting back on track with the exercise and eating.
Won $500 in gas cards at a raffle after the scavenger hunt on Saturday! Woo Hoo!
Saturday – ran about 3-ish miles during a scavenger hunt.
Sunday – 2 hrs of tennis and a 1 hour hike.
Today (Monday) – probably nothing because my legs are sore.
I’ve been feeling a little down lately. It’s because of my procrastination (putting off good health until tomorrow). My new mantra will be Participate not Procrastinate!
I’ve started taking initiative to get out and exercise more this week and I feel a lot better.
I am grateful for the love note I received today. I feel lucky:
“I realized I hadn’t sent you a love note yet. I really love you because you are so good with me. We have a great friendship and I am grateful for it every day. I am completely yours.”
Sunday – 2 hrs of tennis, 45 min hike
Monday – Nothing
Tuesday – 30 minute run in the evening. Felt great!
All of my procrastination with my fitness goal has left me feeling down, but I know that it’s up to me. Yesterday after I ran, the happy feeling came back. However before the run I kept hoping it would rain so that I would have an excuse. So glad that it didn’t and that I was able to get through that wall of procrastination. Participate not Procrastinate!!
said something to me that was very touching to me, but made me feel very sad.
He said “No matter how big you get, we love you.”
I know he meant well, but WOW.
for no good reason. This picture made me smile.
This morning I sent the alarm for 4:30am, and when it rang, my BF turned it off and we rolled over and I didn’t wake up until 6am. :(
Ran a 10K on Saturday and didn’t do a good time (1:17:06).
Then later on Saturday we went hiking in the afternoon for 3 hours. By the evening when we arrived home, both of us could barely get out of the car and walk inside the house. :) It was really funny. The whole night we were rolling over in bed goaning in pain.
Did another run on Tuesday and I really struggled. I started getting a shin splint on the right leg. My friend said to me “it’s because you are too sedentary. He is absolutely right.
Waking up after a good night’s sleep
Getting some early morning exercise outside in the cool of the morning. Felt meditative.
Eating a good breakfast.
Having my honey completely on board and supportive with my less food/alcohol, more exercise goal.
Feeling hopeful that I can stick to my goal of having a healthier lifestyle.
on Saturday when my honey attempted to paint my toe nails, but doing so with reading glasses didn’t seem to help. I tried to take over and I couldn’t see well either because my vision is also changing. I told him it was like the blind leading the blind.
Feeling good today. Inspired to focus on getting healthier and feeling better about the way I look. Whenever he asks me “What are you going to wear tonight?” My response is usually “whatever fits.”
Lose 15 lbs by June 29th.
Eat less, consume less alcohol and do at least 3 miles of cardio per day.
No eating after 4 pm for the first 2 weeks.
No consumption of bread or pasta during this time, and allow myself a trace amount of rice during meals.
Eat more fish
No more than 8 alcoholic beverages per week (should be less, but I don’t want to be dishonest from the beginning).
I need to focus and stop being lazy about this goal. I have to envision how great I will feel when I reach this goal, and how uncomfortable I feel right now.
I believe this goal will finally be marked as “complete” next year when I go to Belgium. First trip to Europe!
Friday – awesome rainy hike to a waterfall.
Saturday – 1.5 hour hike, half of the trail was very uphill. :(
Sunday – 2.5 hrs of tennis
Went overboard on spirits and food this weekend. Enjoyed a 3-day weekend.
Really enjoying this goal.
I will be taking my honey out to dinner tonight. I didn’t realize he was on board with this goal. This morning he had a big smile on his face and said to me “you’re taking me out to dinner to celebrate the 1st of the month, right? Where are we going?”
After dinner we’re going to meet up with friends for a birthday celebration.
My son sent me a text at 5:30am to play an April Fool’s joke on me. I was fooled…
Was caught in traffic and called a friend who was also caught in traffic and we decided turn our cars around, and meet to do a hike!
