The coach potato in me...

Sunday, December 14, 2014

emoticon This weekend I had a cardio burnout! I have not been feeling well so Friday I did not work out at all. That is the first time in months that that has happened. So of course I didn't feel great about it, but I was not feeling well, and I felt it was best to take it easy.
Then Saturday came, and that couch potato feeling was still there. I still didn't feel well, and I really didn't want to work out, but I thought maybe if I get up and move around a little bit, then I might feel better. So I put in my Exercise Tv Dorm Workout which is about 30 minutes of cardio, but it's not high intensity so I figured it would be ok. I did the workout and I felt better about myself, but I still didn't feel good! emoticon
Today came and I still don't feel good, but I did do an amazing step workout for almost 46 minutes! I have to admit it was tempting to quit in the middle, but I just kept telling myself I can do it! It seems like the more I sat on the coach, the more I wanted to stay there, and I wouldn't let my mind think that way! We can be our worst enemies sometimes! Don't you think?
I hope everyone is having a good weekend! God bless! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Everything is worth it....

Sunday, December 07, 2014

emoticon Sometimes in this life frustration sets in, the need to be perfect in all that we do! Then when things don't go as we planned it, we get frustrated and we think that we are failures!
We have to look at the big picture! We have to start somewhere if we are going to get to the top! It doesn't mean along the way we won't have trials, but it just means that we believe in the power to change and we believe in ourselves enough to make that happen!
So many times we mess up with our eating or our exercise, and we think now I have to start all over again! The truth is, you don't have to start again. You just learn from it, and you move on! Life is about changes, and with those changes are going to come some bumpy roads and things that make us uncomfortable, but just believing in yourself and knowing that one day you will get over those bumpy spots in the road, can make all the difference in the world! You can truly believe that success is in the palm of your hands!
I know because I have lived it! I have set some goals, and achieved them! I have been down to where I felt I had nothing left, but then overcame those obstacles and I am back on track!
So emoticon believe that one day you will be doing the happy dance! That emoticon is not going to stop you from achieving your goals! That you are a winner! emoticon

Caught between impossible and a hard spot....

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Have you ever thought at times that either way you look it, the outcome seems impossible? Then you realize it was the limitations you were putting on yourself
They say nothing in life comes easy, but I believe this is built on fear of the unknown.
So do we have choices in life? Yes we do! What is your choice today? Are you going to let fear stand in your way or are you going to soar higher then an eagle and make a mark on this world with your life? so keep climbing those stairs because eventually you will get to the top!

Life has a funny way.....

Sunday, November 23, 2014

You ever wonder how life takes those little twists and turns? One minute things are going well, and the next minute something happens and you don't know why?

I think when you look at your life, and you think about all the things you have done in your life, you realize that there was this little guardian angel sitting on your shoulder trying to direct you down the right road, but at times you were stubborn and you took a different path?

I believe that we all have desires that make us want to explore life and all it has to offer, but we must be careful because at times there are going to be bumps in the road, there are going to be things we can't explain, but God knows why! He is always with us! He never forsakes us!

I believe everything happens for a reason! Do you ever wonder how you got on Spark People? I am truly blessed every day for the friends I have made on this site, and for this site has taught me about loving myself and loving others! It has inspired me to greater levels then I ever imagined!

If God is knocking on your door, and he is taking you down a different road, for whatever reason, then listen to his voice! Those words he is speaking are for your own good! You just have to listen!

    Very insightful! I think there have been plenty of times when my poor ol' guardian angel has been hanging on for dear life! Thanks for helping me remember that everything happens for a reason, just maybe not the reason that I want. emoticon

Getting from here to there....ATTITUDE...DETERMINTATION...FAITH
..

Sunday, November 16, 2014

Did you get up this morning and change your flat tire? So many of us start out strong with our desires
You can't change your life if you don't have the Passion from inside your heart that drives you to make a change!
Then you begin to fill that tire up with air and something happens, you get that feeling back that you can take on the world, that you can do anything you set your mind to!
This was short but sweet! What is your attitude going to be for the day? Is it going to be one of success? Or one that leads you to a flat tire?
