Quote for the day!

Tuesday, May 02, 2006

Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labour and to wait.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)


Quote for the Day!

Friday, April 28, 2006

It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965)

How true can this be,if we don't expect the very best from ourselves then what will we end up with.
Unhappiness, gaining more weight? Depression. I don't know about you but hating myself and going back to those days, just doesn't cut it anymore.

I know the days I plan my meals, exercise and journal are the days I am on track. Those are the weeks I do well. It is the times we sabotoge ourselves in the CHOICES we make that can send you spiriling wanting to get off the journey you have committed yourself to. So I say this. Love yourself enough to make the promise to yourself to be good to yourself. By loving yourself you are accepting whom you are and what you want to be. You can now make your dreams a reality with hard work, because it is hard work. Losing weight and then keeping it off is not easy. This is a life time journey. I used to think of it as a climb up the journey with hitting my weight loss journey at the summit, but in reality hitting the summit will be maintaining my weight once goal is reached. Everything else will be icing, because when I reach the summit. I will clearly see the journey I embarked on, the stumbles and excitment. I will see all of the views from the TOP of my mountain. Oh how the sun will rise and set and how beautiful it will be from there.

That's it for today!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could…

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer

Giving It Your All

If you can do your best and forget your worst, you've already got a head start on tomorrow. As long as you lay it out there every day, you can relax when yesterday is behind you. Of course, the only way this will happen is if you give yourself permission to forget. You can use this approach in anything: Pick up a problem, do what you can with it, and then put it down. Work your tail off at the office, then leave it there (the work, not your tail). Deal with a personal crisis by finishing off one day at a time. There's a great deal of satisfaction in leaving things be for a moment. There's a great deal of freedom in knowing that you could do no more. And there's a great deal of success awaiting the person who gives it her all, no matter what.

When I read this article it hit me big time, not less then 3 weeks ago I was faced with adversity. My fiancee attempted suicide. I have taken each day one at a time. He survived and he is now doing the same taking one day at a time but, you have to live each day and not look back at the past or you end up being still. If your choices were poor the previous day but today you are making great choices let them move on to the next day, keep the positive in your life and remove the negative. My fiancee, is now learning how do that, to take care of himself instead of giving up. Clearing out the closet which had lots of cowebs. So, it's like this don't live in the past live in the present and prepare for the future each and everyday.

This is helpful in my weightloss journey because if I plan each day, I stick to my goals, my food, etc. Plan out each day for success. Clear out the negative and thank God each and everyday for the life he has given you so you can make good and informed choices.

Friday, April 14, 2006

Finally uploaded the SRD 2006 Pictures. What a blast SRD was it totally changed me as a person. I can even explain the feeling I left with, it was a combination of feelings I got leading up to it and the successes I have had in the past due weeks have been outstanding. Looking into the future with goals in hand and never letting go. Will look back to SRD to spark myself up when ever I feel down and remember that with my friends I will make it.
