Stay Busy, Stay Strong

There is no better way to stay positive, eat less, and stay healthy then to keep doing positive things in your life. You know things you love to do, things that make you happy. Let me ask you this: When you are whitewater rafting, riding your bike through the mountains, or hiking atop a glacier, were you thinking about food? NEVER! Now it would be a little challenging to do those things daily but you can certainly keep busy doing other things like going for a walk, reading a book, learning a new language, or even picking up a new hobby. If you keep yourself busy with life you certain make less time for eating, and less time soaking in any negatives!

It sounds weird but it is so simple and I am doing it right now! As if working a full time job and keeping up with my regular blog post is not enough, in my last post you will see I have taken on a number of goals. My April goals really amount to eating healthier, eating less, and exercising more. Those are certainly not bad ways to keep busy.

My goals certainly got the best of me over this last week. I am not here to make excuses but I am here to say that I stumbled upon numerous challenges only in week one. You know what? I did not meet all my goals, but I have done something more important than that, I kept busy and I tried my best! That is really all you can ask of yourself and I am positive that there is room for improvement.

One of my goals was I wanted to do 50 miles a week walking, biking, or kayaking. Even though I showed signs of failure in this goal only doing 30 miles, I am not gonna give up. All these new goals have certainly kept me busy and tested my will power but I only look at the positive side of my efforts and I have 5 fewer pounds to show for it.

Test this out for yourself. I am no doctor but just keep yourself busy with things you love and watch your mood and your health change. Love your life, it is the only one you have!

Meme Monday (Step…..to better health)

This April’s health month is only 6 days in and already has posed its challenges, so I thought this quote of mine was appropriate for today!

step

When ever you are challenged take it out of your instincts to walk away. When you step forward into your challenges you gain confidence and the healthy reward for completing those challenges. No matter if your challenges are big or small, for your health or not, your result will still effect you positively if you just face your challenges.

Variety Friday (Focus)

th

This is absolutely right. You focus on losing weight, you will but you will also gain it all back. You focus on changing your life style and being healthy that weight comes off and stays off and you get in even better shape in the process. There are no quick fixes in this world that last, you have to be dedicated to the process to see results.

Here is a nice little positivism spin for you: Don’t focus on not being negative just focus on being positive. It is a formula that works in everything. The more positive you are the better you will feel and the more confident you become that there is more positive things in your future. When you build that positivism routine more positive things start to happen to you!

Have a great weekend,  on Wednesdays I will give you update on my goals. I have certainly hit some challenges but nothing I cannot punch through. Have a great weekend everyone. I am grateful for your following. Stick around this April for more things healthy and positive.

I’m no fool this April

March has come to a close and what a month of Gratitude it was. I am so grateful for the results I had on my Facebook, my Blog, and also with myself. I really like the idea of the month long thing and I decided to do another one this month for all of April!

April will be all about positivism in Health. All month I will be talking about and sharing many Ideas on the subject of health for a more UP (ultra positive) life style. I have set up a few goals for myself that I will list below. Perhaps if you would like you can set up your own health goals to carry out all month long. There is no right or wrong goals. This is about your health and your body. Nobody know your body better then you do!

MY GOALS
– No sweet, desserts, sugary drinks or sugary snacks all month
– One day a week if I want junk food
– No drinking alcohol (not that I do very much anyways :P)
– 50 miles a week biking, walking, or kayaking
– Set meals every day, eating less
– No eating out at restaurants all month

I start this month at a high 274 lbs. Lets see how much I can lose in one month.

With Easter looming, I quickly bought up some candy and ate it all last night, But that is it until May! Why April, you may be wondering? The only answer I have for you is why not?

I hope that this month challenge will set me up to get back to eating healthier and eating less again. I hope that you may be able to come up with some health challenges for you. I look forward to the new month, the new challenges, and the new people I may cross paths with.
