I Lost a Bag of Dog Food
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I've stuck with the Spark Coach Program and just finished one and am starting the Motivation and Consistency module. Today's challenge was to visualize something concrete in the amount recently lost. Well, I checked the huge bag of dog food we just recently purchased and it's 30 lbs. Wow, and I can't lift that bag at all. Just to think, no wonder it was extremely hard to climb the steps, walk around the house. And when we went out, I couldn't even walk from the car to the grocery store without huffing/puffing!
This gives me even more motivation to really commit to consistency, tracking and my biggest challenge - movement!
I've spent the past week with me new FitBit, just doing a normal routine to get a baseline. Apparently (even thought I know this) I am over 82% sedentary ... OUCH! I know that includes sleeping, but it puts it right in my face. So, I am setting my timer at the computer to move every hour for at least 5 minutes - walk around the house, counter push ups, chair squats or climb one flight of stairs to break this pattern of hypnotic sitting.
It becomes even more of a challenge next week when my exercise classes are moved from 4:30 to 10 AM ... means another pattern to break of sleeping late (I'm night owlish).
Well, this will all payoff when that second 30 lbs. comes off for a total of 60 and I can visualize TWO bags of dog food gone! So bring it on - Woof Woof!
