I grew up in the Sound of Music days. I always think of Maria singing, "Nothing comes from nothing. Nothing ever could...."

It reminds me that I have to go after what I want. I have to work to make it happen.

when i walk/run going up the hills is still hard for me (just quit smoking after 18 years last month) i always tell myself "you can do this" and i listen to music one song says "Victory's within the mile Almost there, don't give up now" theres a huge steep hill that no matter what i have to go up it and these things help me just repeating them over and over when i try to run or go up the hills i bet my neighbors think im crazy cause i have in my headphones im sure im talking/singing very loud and dont know it but it helps me and i need all the help i can get now

this is only temporary

Is it BETTER (less, more, better form, etc. depending on whether it is exercise, eating, or whatever) thank it would have been in the past?

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

anyone have a helpful mantra or motivational phrase to share? i use "push it" when i'm on my bike because i always know I can push harder, and I use "you are a machine" when i'm holding a difficult pose in my hot yoga class. What do you say?
