What has been really helping me to stay focused and on track is REMEMBERING what the wrong food choices did to me. REMINDING myself that I am changing those choices and literally stopping and pausing to RETHINK before I make a choice; what will the consequences be positive or negative to my change of life style
THE 3 R'S
REMEMBER, REMIND, RETHINK

I am pushing sixty. That is enough exercise for me Mark Twain
Alisa Daglio Body Makeover Expert
Many people in the gym push weights around use body parts that never should
apply to the exercise they are attempting to perform. I applaud every effort
made in the gym but wince when I see people wasting their time. If I had a dime
for every man I saw working his shoulders on a chest press I could probably
purchase an oceanfront estate in Costa Rica. Even more disheartening is when
people mistakenly believe that fitness training alone will provide them with
their dream body. These are the people who exercise constantly (spinning,
hiking, swimming, aerobics etc.) and are devastated when they do not lose
weight. Although they may get stronger, most of these individuals will not be
successful in reshaping their physique. There will be a genetically gifted few
who can look amazing no matter what they do, but the truth is, this is not most
Fitness (having good health or physical condition) does not necessarily
equate to looking the way that you would like to look. Conversely, achieving
your desired physical aesthetic can be very different from being fit. Can you
have both? The answer is yes! You do not have to give up your favorite fitness
sport, but you do need to make time for weight training, proper nutrition, and
fat burning cardio. Never count on a trainer for your weight loss. The most
important key component in changing your body is consuming a proper diet. Your
trainer can help teach you the exercises that you need in order to successfully
reshape your physique but proper nutrition and cardio are 85% of looking
When I was training myself for the WPFL (Women's Professional Football
League) I threw aesthetics out the window and went straight to explosive power
moves that caused my legs to grow. I knew that merely weight training would
result in a body that was all show and no go on the field. Ultimately my pants
didn't fit but I attained the power I was looking for. When I competed in the
Miss Pacific Beach Pageant, I realized that my body had to be tight, long, and
lean. I trained myself with light weights and high repetitions coupled with a
clean diet and fat burning treadmill work. Each time my life called for a
change, I altered my training style to suit my goal. The same principle should
apply to you
When approaching any exercise, ask yourself if that exercise is congruent
with your objective. Use common sense and be realistic about it. Are you
balancing on top of a ball and hoping for a better body? Leave the circus to
Britney Spears. If you really think about it, you already know that this big
top act will not leave you looking like a supermodel. The training methods that
you select should be in alignment with your goals. It is always fun to try out
the latest fad in exercise but do not be disappointed when it does not yield the
body results you are seeking. Ask yourself what your first priority is. Is it
having more energy, looking great, excelling in a certain sport, or something
else? Once you decide, you can expedite your results by spending more time on
exercises and lifestyle changes that work for you and less on ones that don't.
Aspire to have a specific purpose in mind, be selective with your activities,
and make the move forward to a better you

Our dreams goals and ideas come from our values If what we are doing does not come from what we care about most in life, it is meaningless.
From Frued we learn that the past now exists in the person Now we must learn from growth theory and self-actualization theory that the future also now exsits in the person in the form of ideals, hopes, duties, tasks, plans, goals, unrealized potentials, missions, fates, and destinies. Because one for whom no future exists is reduced to the concrete to hoplessness to emptiness.

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?
The idea of ripples is used to describe the influence the behavior of one person has upon a group.
What ripple effect does your behavior create? Your behavior affects not only you, but everything you touch. If you are in a bad mood it affects your family, friends, and co-workers. Your negative moods influence the checkout clerk at the store, the bus driver, the postman, and the person next to you on the train. Then those people carry it with them and their behavior affects everyone they encounter. Your bad moods are like a virus that spreads through a community.
However, your good moods and positive attitude have the same influence. Realize that you contribute not only to your experience of the world, but how others behave and experience it too. Decide to spread a positive ripple with your attitude and behavior. We are all powerful. We do influence our communities and the world at large.
Decide today to spread a positive ripple)))).
Today as you go through your day, as you are positive with people you encounter, envision in your mind your positive energy as it spreads from person to person. Then when someone is positive with you tomorrow, imagine that is your positive ripple coming back. Keep it going. See the one ripple turn into waves of positive change.
Together we can change the world.

ďEvery time you fall down, get back up quickly. Get up and get going. Begin to act like you have a rubber butt.Ē ~ Bill Bartmann, Entrepreneur & Billionaire
You see itís just like Newtons first law. An object in motion tends to stay in motion. If you stop, everything stops. If you feel like giving up thatís normal, but get up and get going again to regain your winning momentum.
ďAn object in motion tends to stay in motion.Ē
Sometimes it can feel like youíre ďforcing yourselfĒ to get into action. Iíve been there, we all have. Although Iíll admit that forcing myself to act has helped me in the past - itís not my first choice. Why? Because it all starts from the inside.
Thatís where all the magic and power is. Thatís why itís important to prescribe yourself with some mind powers - to get into the right vibration. Once youíre in the right vibration it becomes natural and even effortless to take action. Vibration is where it all starts.
When youíre in the right vibration, you feel better. And when you feel better you can easily bounce back. You can regain your winning momentum.
Getting Into the Right Vibration When You Feel Like Giving Up
Getting into the right vibration is a function of many factors. It includes your environment, the people you associate with, your unconscious beliefs and your most dominant thought patterns. There are outer and inner stimuli affecting you all the time.
That being said, here are the two elements that I consider to be the most important to get into the right vibration:
1. Creating a purpose filled life
2. Creating a dynamic vision for your future
Getting into the right vibration once in a while means feeling good once in a while. But living your life on fire and charging yourself on a consistent basis requires something more. It requires something more than ordinary.
It requires purpose and vision. To generate a real solid foundation to your emotional well being you need to know your path as well as your destination.
How to Stay Focused with Life Purpose
Think of it this way. Your life purpose is the course or road you take. Itís the journey. Itís the doing or the physical actions along your journey that are filled with desire. Itís the road you take along the way.
And hereís the best part. The journey is totally up to you - itís your choice. Choosing the journey is absolutely critical if you want to live a purpose-filled life. If you donít choose the journey, then the journey chooses you.
Itís like when I worked full time as an engineer. I thought that my life was separate from me. That my life was somehow disconnected from me. That somehow my environment was out of my control. That I was just a person in the world, instead of a person at the cause of the world around me.
Then I woke up. I realized that I do have influence, I do have choice and that I do have power. We all do. Itís just a matter of awareness.
Purpose is part of the answer, but only half the equation.
The other half comes from your vision. Your purpose must be fueled with a destination.
If your life purpose is the course you take, then your vision is the magnet that pulls you along that course. Your vision sets the destination.
How to Stay Focused with Vision
ďOur physical word is a dream world, and it works just like dreaming but generally slower.Ē ~ Brad Jensen, prosperity teacher & millionaire
Vision is the magnet that pulls you along your destination. Itís gives you the juice to move towards a bright future instead of pushing against it. Itís like rolling downhill instead of uphill. Itís like moving with the current instead of against it.
Start to build a beautiful picture in your mind. Start to get emotionally involved in that picture and start to act and move toward that picture every day.
Helen Keller was once asked, ďIs there anything worse than being blind?Ē She replied, ďYes. The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but no vision.Ē
Start to change your ideas of why youíre here and what youíre here to do. Get that rubber butt bouncing and start fueling your future with purpose and vision. Begin to visualize everyday - even for only five minutes. That five minutes will be more powerful than the 40 hours of action you take every week.
I Never Feel Like Giving Up
Then start playing a bigger game. If you donít feel like giving up once and a while, then check if you have a pulse. You might not be alive.
Real performers are up to something. They play full out. They feel like giving up, but bounce back quickly.
Get that rubber butt syndrome going. Get clear on your purpose and create a compelling vision for your future. These are the gifts that keep on giving. Theyíll give you that bounce to take life full on; to get back up and keep going. If youíre willing to give life a shot, life will gladly give it back to you.
