Well, tonight is the season finale of Losing It. I will look forward to watching it and will anxiously wait for Biggest Loser to begin again in the fall, though I AM NOT WISHING THE SUMMER AWAY!
I am happy to start getting some great feedback from some of my students regarding how they have changed their eating and what it is translating to in their blood work! One of my long time SilverSneakers students, let me know yesterday that her blood sugar level is in the 90s for the first time in a long time. This kind of news makes me really happy.
Another student and I talked about our mutual affection for sugar laden food like Swedish fish, gummies and marshmallows. (Marshmallows, by the way, are not actual vegan due to what holds them together). I have just stopped buying that VOID of nutrition JUNK and that has helped a lot. I am not the type to run to the corner for a treat. Last night I snacked on some peanut butter and a little grape jelly. It did the trick and at least offered me the nutrition from the peanut butter.
Yesterday I managed to do about 1/2 the “legs and back” P90x video and most of ab ripper x before it was time to eat and go back to the gym. The program makes me feel stronger, almost immediately. Perhaps that, too, is part of what makes me love it (even though when I say love, I honestly mean LOVE/HATE). Today I will do one of the cardio videos (probably cardio x as I find that one goes the quickest). Also a swimming day, weather permitting. So far its been raining and Blaze and I are waiting for a break to take our morning walk.
Sending out some positive energy to some of my very favorite people who are enduring some physical and emotional struggles right now. Life can be so challenging.
Life can be so challenging, but just yesterday I was thinking about the small, unexpected miracles, that can turn an uneventful day into a cause for celebration…Unexpected miracles. I wish them for all of you today and every day.
