Thumbs up I feel good! (thank you James Brown....)

In the spirit of motivating us toward our goals..........

A thread that helps us feel good and empowered!

Feel free to post about things you like about yourself, something good that happened to you, something nice you did for your self, something you did that made you feel empowered or that motivated you in your weight loss journey or in your life in general, something you feel thankful for or a good samaritan moment where you helped someone else - good Karma!

I feel good because I finally gave myself a day off....a day where I had nowhere to go, nothing to do and I just relaxed and didn't feel the least bit guilty about the things I could have been doing...just a little r'nr for once...bliss...

I feel good because I spent most of the day Saturday and all day Sunday cleaning and reorganizing my office at work, in preparation for the reorganization of my job. I went through piles and files, and got a lot accomplished! I'm not done yet, but have made a HUGE dent in things (and my office looks amazing)! I had to give up my weekend to do this, but I don't mind at all because it was rainy and cold all weekend, so I didn't miss anything.

I feel good because I think the plateau is beginning to tilt... and hey, I'm just grateful I can do all this stuff, I've got my health back, I'm getting fitter by the day, and so on. I think my attitude is starting to evolve-- I'm beginning to think in terms of running mile times and golf handicaps, not just the poundage. I want to get back in touch with my inner jockette.

I feel good because I can do a 10 count heel stretch AND a valdez into a back-bend and my coaching goal is to require the girls to be able to do EVERYTHING that i can do. My next goal is a toe-touch and a herky jump.

Coach Tiki.

Thanks for starting this again, Mauvais.

I feel good because I started running again yesterday. And my flexability is getting better thanks to yoga.

O.K., I'll bite-- I can picture a toe-touch, but what the heck is a valdez and a herky jump?

Valdez - sit on butt, left leg bent, right leg straight, left hand on ground behind you. swing right hand up while arching your back and go into a back bend (you end up looking like a crab). Herky jump - jump in the air with left leg straight out forward and right leg bent back - touching both toes.

I think I am going to take a few Pilates classes to help with flexibility.

Tiki.

I think I'd need a crash helmet and mouthguard!

I feel good because it's finally spring and I repainted my kitchen yesterday
