For 2013 ...

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

What will I strive for? A better me, physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally. The older I become, the more I find of me that I need to work on. In 2013 I hope to make some serious progress toward a better me.

Here's hoping for good health, personal satisfaction, love, joy, and prosperity for all my Spark Friends in 2013.

Happy New Year!

    You, if anyone, are THE ONE who can meet your very ambitious goal. And don't let anyone stand in your way.....'cause you're one tough dudette!

If you hear a loud, obnoxious, but enthusiastic bellow...it's me standing on the mountaintop with my megaphone calling to Michigan...Go, Jonne, go, go, go!

    Happy New Year, girlfriend! Anxious to see the 5% groups get back up and running. I confess, I'm probably the biggest multitasker -- when it comes to eating -- there is. I think I'll wait and see what the next LTGL challenges are before I add them to my current plate. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    The best part of your goals - there isn't anything materialistic about it! I find that as I get older, my dreams for being rich are centered on those you mentioned - health, wisdom, and spiritually fulfilled; a better me and better able to help others!

Wishing you the best in the year to come!

    That is wonderful, you are so right. Part of my resolution is to try and live by the Serenity Prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

End of the Fall 5 % Challenge

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Well, yesterday marked the end of our Fall Challenge, and after doing our final weigh-in today, it's all over.....until the Winter 5 % Challenge. I had an ambitious goal, and didn't make it, but I'm vowing to make it for the Winter Challenge. With holiday eating, and work making it hard to find time to exercise, it is indeed a challenge. But when is there not an excuse to overeat and under exercise? So if you're up to the challenge, let me know, and I'll clue you to when the Winter challenge is taking new members.

    I'll see you there! I wasn't going to participate because I will be without internet for 2-3 weeks during the challenge, but a couple of the members convinced me to sign up anyway. This will definitely be a challenge for me as we have a cruise planned in mid-January (can you say "all you can eat" food?).

    I'm looking forward to the Winter challenge . . . something tells me it will come after Christmas with the four-week interim period. You can do this. Even if you maintain during the holiday season, you're doing well, but higher expectations is what we should have.

    That particular breakfast your website takes you to is also the same high-protein breakfast Dr Oz recommended several months ago for people who happen to plateau when they gain primarily belly fat weight. (Apple shape vs Pear) I do believe there's something to be said for the staving off of hunger when you eat a higher protein breakfast . . . said from a belly fat Evelyn, as well as a fan of Dr Oz. (smiling!)

Good Enough Instead of Perfect

Monday, November 05, 2012

Replace Your Need for Perfection with Good Enough
~ Dr. Dar

Perfection creates delay in your success with any endeavor. Looking for perfection is also an unfulfilling activity. Instead, identify what good enough looks like for you so that you can continue to move forward without getting stuck or stagnant. I have noticed my life getting simpler and flowing more easily every time I give up on things being perfect. Allowing Good Enough in my life has resulted in the ability to complete projects, improved my relationships, and given me back time wasted on perfection.

Internal Radar Notice...are you experiencing tightness of breath and discomfort at the thought of letting go of Perfect...if you are, then you know it is time to implement Good Enough in your life!

Go Forth with Good Enough in Your Life!
Breathe Easier in the Process of Letting Go of Perfect!!
Know that you are Loved and Good Enough!

    It's so odd how we all-too-often lay on ourselves a standard that is impossible to achieve. Sometimes it takes a life-long learning process to come to terms with something less than perfection. I tend to strive to be an over achiever in those things I set my mind to. Fortunately, I have a lot of nonsense built in to keep things real. (smile, smile)

    Great blog. I recently discovered the same thing. I was always disappointed because I couldn't be perfect every time. "Good Enough" feels much better!

    Love it!! I learned the greek word and meaning of perfect in my bible study this week. Perfect = Teleios = that which has achieved or reached it's goal, objective or purpose. I like that definition of perfect because it lets us set goals and work toward them and celebrate each "just good enough" step in our lives!!
Thanks for sharing...smiles Barb
