Encouragement for all of us!

Thursday, July 31, 2014

I read another blog today & it really hit me for what I was feeling today, so I kind of borrowed it to write from. I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, today is the day, I can do it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am. Then I have to make the decision, I can do something - no matter how small - toward accomplishing what I want or set back & do the same thing I have been doing every day - which for most of us is to talk about what we are planning on doing today! Then end up wasting our time doing - NOTHING! If you want what you do not have, you must do what you have not done.

Below is a few quotes I found to maybe help us all towards our goals no matter what they are, take a moment to read them & then reflect how they may impact your life.

"Encouragement is awesome. It (can) actually change the course of another person's day, week, or life. Chuck Swindoll

Who can YOU and I encourage today? A family member? A friend? Ourselves? The possibilities are limitless! "

“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them. But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain

We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”
― C. JoyBell C.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

    emoticon I do read random blogs about things that catch my eye..... people are always so supportive and thankful that I took the time to read their blog and that my response "helped" them in some way.

I'm Trying

Friday, July 25, 2014

Ok once again - to busy to write my blog or even take proper care of myself. I decided to take a moment with the childcare children laying down for their rest period to write it.

I'm trying hard to make everything work, I'm doing a little better with the exercise this week, just need to get better with the eating. You think just a small bite will be ok, then you don't track it & before you know that small bit has ended up into several small bits. I realize I have to make changes but for some reason I just can't seem to get there.

I thought this was cute & yet so true!

    I know exactly what you mean! The busier I get the more I go on auto pilot and the more old behavIors return after all my hard work! Watch tedx Charles duhigg power of habit... It takes about 15 minutes but it is so useful. you can do this.

    It is hard. I say have whatever you like to eat, just track it, and try as hard as you can to stay in your calorie range. Stay active and be patient. Best Wishes for you!!!

I set aside time to plan and am really concentrating on making portions already made. I bought half cup and 1 cup containers to help. Found them at the dollar tree. They have lids. Then it's grab and go. I started this after slipping on portion control.
Good job on exercise! emoticon emoticon
