    My NSV for the week is receiving compliments from my teammates in hockey for some improvements that I've been making in my stickhandling and shooting. This summer, I've scored more goals and assists than I have in any other season, reached the top 10 player in the league for points, while the level of competition feels like it's getting harder. It could be that I'm getting older and we're playing against some really quick women who are 20 years younger than me. Since our team doesn't practice, I think most of my improvements have come from coaching through the winter.

    @nancyinmo I'm so glad you are safe, but sorry to hear about the damage. We had a derecho here a few years ago and it was terrifying and so destructive. We lost power for over a week but we didn't have to deal with heat. I hope your power comes back on soon!

    @Sbus12 way to go with your steps and for reaching your step goal each day so far!

    I'm sorry that I'm a bit behind on reading all the posts. I hope everyone has a great weekend! It's long weekend up here in Canada and I'm really looking forward to having an extra day off and a short work week next week.

    glad to see some of my vacation hiking muscle soreness/water retention has come off. i've really tried to get back into logging my food this week and focussing on good, solid, low heart rate/intensity exercise.

    @frankwbrown congrats on getting thru a hot ride! i've seen videos of this event and it looks like a ton of fun. boo c19, hope you recovery quickly.

    It’s Thursday…the weekend is just around the corner. Often the weekend is difficult for people with social events and more opportunities to exceed calorie goal. Try to take a few minutes and make a plan. Doing the same thing will yield the same results.

    Throw out some plans for yourselves this weekend!


    I've got alot of chores to catch up around the house and need to get my pup to the vet for her annual shots. I'm going to make a batch of giardiniera.
    Sunday I will see my personal trainer, I haven't seen her in a while because of time, money, and foot injuries.

    Goal for Saturday that is specific to my physical fitness - go for a 8-10 mile bike ride. Chance of rain is 41% on Saturday.

    What are you weekend goals/plans?

    Who uses positive affirmations to start/end their day?

    One of my go-to affirmations comes from the Kelly Clarkson song Whole Lotta Woman
    "I'm a strong, bada$$ chick with class and confidence, yeah"

    What's your favorite affirmation?
    Or what is an affirmation we can use to keep us focused on aligning our behaviors, goals, and values?

    @Cyncia85 I went to the pool today after work and I have a graduation party tomorrow. I’m really focused on getting my steps in daily as it’s my goal. I also was very careful how I ate today at the pool and I’m trying to plan ahead for what I’ll eat at the graduation party. I’m trying to truly look at this as a lifestyle change and think what are healthy ways to eat while in social activities. Food is such a temporary reward, I much more appreciate the reward of my clothes fitting better, and my muscles toning up. I just need to continue to remind myself that.

    Positive affirmations are very fulfilling. I’ve beat up myself mentally before, but talking positively and accepting that I can have a set back one day but it doesn’t define me the next day has better results.

    Carrie Underwood—I am a champion is a fun-positive song filled with affirmations.
