February 1 and a great Monday to start!

Monday, February 01, 2016

I have decided that for February, as often as I can find something, I will feature some sort of heart that has to do with health, for my picture.

I love this green heart that is full of all those great green vegetables. I see chard and kale, asparagus, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and some sort of very long green beans. What a lovely thing and I could see that all being steamed and served as a beautiful side dish.
Could you see this made up for two, lightly steamed, maybe add a few tomatoes and a nice Mediterranean vinaigrette?

I am feeling pretty good today. I lost 2.6 pounds last week. That without any Jazzercise classes. Our weather went from extreme cold, where I didn't want to go out in the cold, after class, dripping with sweat, to drive home in a cold car. Even if I did layer on sweats for the trip. From there I had that nasty flu. Then last week I was still having nagging mucous on my chest and a cough. Today I am going back to Jazzercise. I am so happy and I think it will work now.

I decided with the lost pounds this morning to change my goals to smaller goals. I had on my goal board the actual weight I want to be. I find that defeating. So since I told you all the other day that my weight was 208.8 and the fact that weight is a stubborn number for me, then finding 206.2 on the scale this morning, well...
I decided to help my head out a little and I changed my goal to 200. The next stubborn number for me has been 200. To get that darn scale to register something under 200 has been a battle for me more than once. I think it is something in my head. A mental block. Maybe I should change that goal weight to something like 198? Maybe that might be better. I think I shoudl do that. The times I have crashed through that "glass floor" I would go a few pounds under that stubborn number. From above 200, to a couple pounds under it, in a week.

This would look so nice to me and would really motivate me further.
It was such a downer, a year and a half ago, or so, when that number went above 200! Because I have that mental block about getting below it again.

*See how this works.
**I need to stop being so negative!
***It is just a number, my body knows nothing about scales.

Well anyway, I want to see this!

There will be a reward!
What ever will it be?
I am thinking a professional manicure? perhaps...

Be Well My Friends,
For The Love Of Health!

    You can do it! I think smaller goals seem more realistic. Once that pesky 2 goes off the scale, you can focus on other goals. Good luck!
