Well, there is a cool contest going on at Wii Fit mommies, and today is the last day. The final quest is to post a Fitness Friday! Well, here is mine.
This week, I have focused on my caloric intake and calorie expenditures by using the BodyBugg. I have posted everywhere about this unique gadget and have received positive responses from others using the BodyBugg or those who just have questions.
The most newest gadget that I received for Christmas is the Wii Sport Console and just recently I received the Wii Fit. So, I have been reading directions on how to set up the Wii and I am making great progress. The Wii should be set up today, and I can't wait to get started.
I have been faithfully tracking my meals and exercise -- using the BodyBugg Management System. I am hoping to increase my exercise starting next week -- especially with adding Wii Fit and Zuma (dance video). Sometimes the Lupus holds me back from exercising -- but it can't stop me from "moving" because I am still buring calories and I have a daily goal to meet on the BodyBugg.
This week was a time of reflection -- getting to learn and know my body. Remembering to progress to a Mean Green Machine by feeding it nutritious healthy foods, Exercising and Resting. (I saw on another blog the acronym "RED" (Resting, Exercising, & Diet). I felt that this is a good acronym to hold onto as a positive influence for my subconscious to conscious mind. I also recognized the importance of loving myself and that it is not selfish to be selfish because I have been self-less; always putting other things, situations, etc. before me. So, I am learning to focus on my health, getting healthly, and living a healthy lifestyle -- which when you think about it really isn't selfish because how can I help others if I am not in full form? And, how can I help others if I do not show them that, it can be done no matter your physical condition.
To end in a big way, let's all raise our hands giving ouselves a "High-Five" and in a resounding, voice say, "Yes WE Can!"
Cheers to Good Health & Be Well,
