Stop at Nothing.

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Happy December!!!

This is the LAST month of the year and my Final Grind of 09' challenge! I am DETERMINED to bring in the new year feeling proud of ALL of the progress I have made in the year; emotionally, physically, spiritually...

I am going to try for "2 a days" 3x a week (starting Saturday- after my test)
I'm going to eat clean(which for me means to pack my lunch and prepare my meals at home)/ and continue the Beck diet plan and( stick to my diet plan)
After my exam sleep 7-8 hours a night.
drink 64 oz of h20
walk my dog everyday (at least 10 mins)
pray and journal and study as much as possible.
Clean/Declutter my apt regularly
This is just a guideline. My true goal is to learn balance/ compassion for my body/ and to give my all always!

OH and I've been taking the stairs every day in the hospital! And you'd better believe the Future Doc does a LOT of running around in that hospital! lol

I will STOP at NOTHING to get what I want. (within reason of course)
I just burned 513 cals on the Bike while studying GO ME! (@ 10:30 p.m.)

Beautiful. But I know you've heard it before. :-)

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

----from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.


How beautiful is this paragraph? Think about it. We are powerful. We can do anything we attempt when we refuse to ACCEPT defeat. Maybe it is that we just need to ACCEPT that we deserve happiness, to be the center of attention sometimes, deep deep deep joy. We DESERVE it. And the honest truth is that, our not getting it does not help others. I am vowing to LIVE to the FULLEST potential I can. Maybe I will have to keep rededicating myself to this. ... but I am worth it. I am MEANT to shine. I am meant to discover what TrUE TRUE happiness feels like. I deserve to wake up and know that I have done all I could to reach my dreams and God is in control of the rest. and so do you.

Thanksgiving just passed and we all had at least one thing to be thankful for. At the very least you are still breathing (hopefully if you are reading this~ LOL). I'm going to take some time to write a list of all the things I'm thankful for, all the things I desire, and then I will make some kind of plan to get them. While accepting that if I don't get everything I want, I still have the joy of knowing I put my all into it.

Have you been giving 100%? I can do better. Now, go out there and LIVE!

or... maybe these things only apply to me :-) Either way... I thought i'd share!

    Oh NO NO NO these things don't just apply to you! :) Thank you so much for posting this quote - it came along again in my life at just the right time. I stayed the same this week weight-wise, but I accomplished my first 5 mile race and THAT is a big difference for me! I'm riding that wave and I look forward to my first 5K this weekend. I'm pushing to be the best I can be and that is my right! :)

Thanks lady. You rock!

**in a rush so typing fast! lol*
Life is going well! :-D My hip is feeling better, I have been able to run a few times this week! :-) I will get an MRI in 2 weeks but I think I've been healed! LOL

I weigh b/t 143-145 everday YAY! go me. Had a few days of unnecessary bad foods but am recognizing that I do NOT want to sabbotage myself so I am refocusing. Going to ATL (home) this weekend will try to eat healthy most meals but have fun too.

I PASSED that exam I studied so hard for. THANK GOD!

I am making grilled shrimp, grilled chicken, broccoli, and baked fries for dinner. Big meal... but better than the CHICKFILA I was headed out the door to get instead! :-) Making small changes... WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Let's Get it. Final Grind for 09!!!! WOOOOOHOOOOOO

    Gosh, that hip has stuck around as an issue, hasnt it? I hope you can get some good instruction on how to care for it so it doesn't remain a chronic issue.

So glad you are on track. I always enjoy the "matter of fact/this is how its going to be" way that you write! You go, girl! Keep it up!

  Sorry I didn't notice your blog before I asked you about your hip! That is great news you feel like it has pretty much healed! I bet what you made at home was way better then Chickfila! Keep hanging in there and fight the good fight everyday! You have tons of energy and it will push you far! I don't remember but what is your goal for the final grind? I am going to shoot for 120! Best Wishes!
