One Step @ A Time - 10/2/2016 Teamwork

Sunday, October 02, 2016

If "weight" didn't exist, how would you know if your body was healthy? What are the signs that you're getting healthier, happier and fitter that don't involve the scale.

So, while looking for a One Step picture my first reaction was - HEY - I'd LOVE to go on a hike today that included crossing water via rocks!!! Hmmm, perhaps I FEEL STRONGER, more ENERGETIC, ADVENTUROUS (of course I'm ALWAYS ready for an adventure) EXCITED, Ready to MOVE, oh and CAPABLE/CONFIDENT that I could do it. Pretty good signs, eh?

THEN I read the Quote!!! Imagine....

How AMAZING - SparkPeople cultivates this concept - hmm TEAMWORK!! We are invited to a team as soon as we join, we can find teams that align with every aspect of our lives - they are ours for the finding!! Challenge Teams that truly work together to achieve goals are available to all of us.

So how is Teamwork telling me that I'm getting healthier??? Well, working to meet the challenges on one of the Biggest Losers Teams is a sign - just the desire is one, and exceeding my goals on the challenges is another.

ALSO - today I joined a group of people who have a Biking Challenge each month - my goal is 300 miles this month.
no - that's not me YET - lol.

Oh I Almost forgot - Dream or Vision? is one better than the other? Are they the same? Well...

So - what signs do you see, that tell you that you're getting healthier, sans scale??
Have a blessed day everyone!!

and don't forget that it's all about:

    I loved your BLOG! It's important to recognize the signs of feeling better. It might be anything; I would have a better sleep, feel the energy in the morning, fhe fingers wouldn't be stiff and carry out the plan for the day. You really made a full-package BLOG entry. emoticon

    1. The six block route I usually HATE to take, because the hill home made my chest pound drastically, and my bones ache, was taken this week and I found that I could DO IT!!!!
    2. I can take deeper, fuller breaths.
    3. I don't have the usual aches and pains. Rarely need pain reliever.
    4. My beautiful developing arm muscles I lovingly named The Bold and The Beautiful are now obvious.
    5. My hands are thinner. My wedding ring is fitting better.
    6. I can see my collar bones (squeal!)
    7. My reflection no longer repulses me.
    8. I can chase after my kids easier.
    9. I can do 16 laps in the pool without feeling my heart pound. Last year at this time, my heart pounded at the end of 1/2 a lap.
    10. I can STAND for a very long time without needing or DYING to SIT!
    11. And I feel confident that I can achieve goals.

    How about YOU? MY eye-opening list might need to make it to my Monday Blog!
    Thanks for the encouragement!
