"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. " ~Ellen Goodman
Stay positive, Sparkfriend! You have so much potential, and I hope you will make the most of it in 2014. I will be cheering you on! See you on the Healthy Holidays team! Hugs, Pixie
“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.” -John C. Maxwell
"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true -- action precedes motivation. You have to prime the pump and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day." - Robert J. McKain
The Healthy Holidays Challenge team is still going strong, and we still have time to make some progress before New Years Day! If you're not feeling motivated to workout and eat right today....do it anyway! Be your own hero and take charge. You will likely feel motivated after you get started. I know I don't have to remind you that you're worth the effort, right? Hugs, Pixie
"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things." ~Jo Coudert
I just wanted to stop by from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team to wish you a very merry Christmas! Have a wonderful holiDAY! Hugs, Pixie
If you see a fat man… Who’s jolly and cute, wearing a beard and a red flannel suit, and if he is chuckling and laughing away, while flying around in a miniature sleigh with eight tiny reindeer to pull him along, then lets face it… Your eggnog’s too strong!!!
“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” -Og Mandino
Hello from the Healthy Holidays Challenge team! I just wanted to wish you a very healthy week! Do your best to stay on track and remember that its only a holiDAY, not a holiWEEK! Come by the team and let us know if you need support! Hugs, Pixie
All I Needed to Know About Life I learned from Santa
Encourage people to believe in you. Always remember who’s naughty and who’s nice. Don’t pout. It’s as much fun to give as it is to receive. Some days it’s ok to feel a little chubby. Make your presents known. Always ask for a little bit more than what you really want. Bright red can make anyone look good. Wear a wide belt and no-one will notice how many pounds you’ve gained. If you only show up once a year, everyone will think you’re very important. Whenever you’re at a loss for words, say: “HO, HO, HO!”
â€śI believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.â€ť -Anthony Robbins
Just stopping by from the Healthy Holidays team to wish you a great day! Stay committed to making progress towards your goals, even with all the temptations that Christmas brings. You are worth your best effort! I'm here if you need support. Hugs, Pixie
