Positive Thinking!!!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

So today my best friend (also my boss) presented blue bracelets (like those you wear for charities and such) to all of us in the office. They are baby blue. Not my favorite color but they could be worse. Written on each of them are two words. POSITIVE THINKING! The goal he has given us is to wear them throughout our lives and when we start to complain we are to move them from one wrist to the other. My question was do thoughts count. I honestly don't think I would get any work done. I had him keep mine, because I didn't think that I was ready for that extreme of a goal in my current state. But those two little words have been beating on my brain like a baseball bat all day. What are positive thoughts? Is it wishing the best for family and friends? Is it thinking good thoughts about those you don't know, but you suspect need your good thoughts? Is it helping the homeless man who sleeps out back of the convienence store daily? Is it not talking about the bad policies the place you work for has or just avoiding gossiping about your co-workers? Is it choosing to say "Go D-Backs!" instead of "Beat L.A"? Can you just start with having positive thoughts and build them up? Can your positive thoughts really affect someone else? Are positive thoughts like some super power that you can push out from your body which will consume those around you? Can you wear it like armor to keep other negative thoughts out of your bubble? What if your positive thoughts are not positive to someone else? I still don't know if I'm ready for this kind of challenge, but it would be awesome if positive thoughts could find their way into your family memebers and friends. And just think you wouldn't have to be bit by a mutant spider or dipped in some radio-active goo to be able to be a super hero. With that thought I think I'll take my bracelet and see where it leads.

    emoticonI look in the mirror every morning and say something positive to myself, about myself. No matter how small. It was a goal I joined for one of my teams, and now it's a habit. Just start with 1 or 2 a day, and see how it goes. emoticon

And a new week begins.....

Sunday, July 10, 2011

This week has a lot of stuff in it. There is fighting this nasty depression and trying to reach the stars at the same time. Didn't do so hot this week so still fighting to succeed. I guess as long as I haven't given that up I'm doing well.

This week I am going to meet my goal. There is no excuse why I should be able to lose betwen 1-2 pounds. I'm 270 pounds, it's not like I don't have it to lose...

So hang on to your hats as this weeks ride begins.....


See ya at the bottom!

Okay it's not magic....

Friday, July 08, 2011

So there is no magic pill, or a magic word, or some magic advice will change it all. It's all up to me to figure out what I'm gonna do. So this upcoming week, starting today, I am going to work on focus. Focus on what I am doing not spending all my hours in that whoa is me mode. Some of you will realize what a tough goal this is, but I'm going to take it on. So to start I'm going to focus on reading a book for my bookworm team. I'm actually going to read the book they are discussing this month and the one that is upcoming for next month. I'm going to read because it takes my mind off other things and lets me become someone else for a moment. I think maybe I just need a mental moment for me and if this will give it to me I hope I'll come back rejuvinated when I'm done.

Well I'm off to track my food and get started reading.

Hope everyone has a fabulous night!

    Hope the reading helps you to relax. It is important that you take a little time for yourself, if only a few minutes. Enjoy your reading! emoticon

Made it through another day!

Friday, July 08, 2011

Huge accomplishment! I made it through another day. I tracked my food. Horrible calories 4600 but I still tracked it all. I found a great spark team and I'm hoping there will be some answers there. I have a great spark buddy who is sticking with me through thick and thin. I think I might make it through this. I'm so tired today. I can't focus. I'm eating everything, in fact I think I ate the kitchen sink. Think I'll go try to get more than 4 hours sleep tonight. Maybe a little sleep will help me move forward. I just want a reason to keep going. Just a reason.....

Night all. Chat with you tomorrow!

  


Trying to figure it out....

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I'll be blogging on and off for a bit..... Going through some heavy stuff and I have to figure it out before I can be a motivator.

But the good news is I'm working on it. I'm sticking with my tracking. Some days are better than others, but I've come to realize that life is just a giant roller coaster.

Well off to bed and to try to get some real sleep.

Thanks to everyone for the goodies, you don't know what kind of important friends you are.

    Just take things one day a time, one problem at a time. Great job on sticking to your tracking. Hope things get better for you real soon. I say this prayer every morning, I hope it helps.

God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change.
The COURAGE to change the things I can.
And the WISDOM, to know the difference.
