Making Time

Saturday, March 10, 2012

I did absolutely no exercise this week. Why? No time. I like to exercise in the morning, but this week I was leaving my house like 6 in the morning. My sleep pattern is off also. However those are all just barriers to my success. I had to ask myself "What is a barrier?". Then I had to answer myself, a barrier is just an obstacle in the way. All obstacles can be removed. It just takes a good plan and perservence. So now I am working on a good individualized plan for myself so that I can perservere. My goal is to have a fantastic week this week.

  Great observation of oneself as we make time for the things we wanna do. Not blaming, just knowing as it's all in priorities. Someone told me one day at a financial advisor's seminare, you can tell what's important to you or what you do with your time by your calendar and you check book. Go get 'em! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Having a Winning Attitude

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

There is so much trying to hold me down but it is not succeeding. I have a winning attitude. I won before and I can do it again. This journey is changing my attitude. I am a bit lighter and am seeing things better. For all those struggling, you can do it. Don't give up!

Starting Over

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Some people see starting over as a sad or a disappointing experience, I am forcing myself to see it as a new opportunity for change and happiness. My coworker asked me to join a weight loss challenge with her which is why I am back. I need to go from 190 to 173 by my birthday which is June 14, 2012. This is scary yet exciting. I can do it and I am going to put in the effort. No more excuses. I fall, get back up. I fall, get back up. That is my new model. I will continue to be encouraged and encourage others as I can. Live was meant to be lived and before I die I will live it. I am living in this second. In this day,in this year. Today and now is me. Stay encouraged, stay blessed and stay motivated. YES I CAN!

Pray Without Ceasing

Saturday, July 11, 2009

I have been MIA. Lost on Facebook and fighting witrh my computer. June was my birthday and it was happy and sad all at once. It almost rained the whole month. Many people died and alot has went on in a short period of time. That has all taught me to pray without ceasing whether times are good or bad. Even psychics and prophets do not know what the future holds, they only know what has been revealed to them. Many people are going through things that we have no idea about. Whether people are happy or sad we have to pray for them that they continue to receive protection. Tommorrow is not promised to any of us and a lot of things can be prevented. Sio we must ask for things and believe that what we ask for we will receive. Prayer is powerful and we have that power so i plan to use it often, for those I know and those that I do not. My prayer today is that everyone be blessed and that those who are in mourning find some peace.

Trying To Break Out Of My Funk

Thursday, June 11, 2009

I have been missing in action for a while. I have been overdosing on facebook. Right now I am going through withdrawal. I am on vacation and nothing is going according to plan. Sometimes I don't want to get excited about things because I know I will be disappointed later. It is raining and it is really bringing down my mood. I have lost 12 pounds to date. I was doing good with the not eating meat thing but I ordered Callaloo from the Carribean restaurant and it had codfish in it and I did not know until I started eating it. So now I have to start all over starting today. I have not been exercising because I notice that when I do I lose the weight quickly. Yes that is my excuse. I have not been drinking my water. I was on a roll then I went to work and it all shot to hell. So now i am lucky if i get one two cups a day. The bad thing is that I do not drink juice so if I do not drink water then I do not drink at all. The only thing I have been drinking consitently is something called Omega To Go. It is a dietary supplement and it has antioxidants fiber and Omega fatty acids. My energy is like so depleted i have not a clue what to do. I am determined to get out of this funk if it kills me. I eat less because I am just not that hungry but the good thing is I crave breakfast. I basically eat brunch and dinner and I am fine. No snacks because I do not crave it. My stomach has gone down considerably but when I eat salad it just puffs right back up. I need to stay away from the oil because it is just destroying my face. My plan is to make a plan and stic with it regardless of the obstacles. Writing this has been a bit cathartic (cleansing) because I am trying so hard to break out of my funk but I just have a black cloud over my head.

    Hi....I was just reading your blog, how's it going?
Take one day at a time....."this too shall pass" and it will.
My mom used to all ways tell me, "this is temporary, you are such a strong woman and you can handle anything that is thrown in your way(any obstacle)."
I believe you can too!! The things/challenges we go through only make us stronger.
From reading your blog you seem to know what you want to do and how to do it, which is great.
You've lost 12 pounds!! So, I know you can do this.
Stay strong and positive......the sun will shine down on you .

Blessings,
Cherone
