Todays Focus points that I have copied below seem to be very syncronistic to me. I have been telling MJ this very thing and it is somethng I have worked on for years. My goal every day is to be as congruent as possible so I do not go off my path and make another detour with my focus and what I want and need in my life. When I do this , stay focused not in a narcisistic way but in a self caring way and listen to my own inner voice I am happy, content, and peaceful.

It is the path of least resistance that makes rivers and men crooked.

- B.J. Palmer, father of chiropractic

Struggling to find your voice

In the face of conflict we might be tempted to just go with the flow and not make waves. The path of least resistance is saying "yes" when you want to say "no" and that road is always paved with regrets and mistakes. While compromise is good and a necessary part of healthy relationships, no one should have to fully deny their feelings and remain voiceless while others dominate a situation. It might feel easier to nod your head and passively agree, but in the long run you are being cheated. While there might be a whole list of justifications and excuses for stepping off the path of your principles, staying true to yourself reaps countless more rewards than selling out to appease someone else. Reconcile today the negative passivity you have displayed in the past.


Fantastic day

Monday, August 13, 2007

Today has been just fantastic!
Yoga and sculpting class with MJ today then ran into Karen with Alexandra and Jacquline at the gym they were finishing their swim lessons. Mj took me to eat real Mexican food for lunch was the best I have eaten since leaving California 7 years ago. Then took MJ to library and introduced her to Donna and she signed up to be a tutor. I met with Sonia and Krystyna today for tutoring. I got home about 6pm and there was a messge from Ignacio. Today was fantastic. I am smiling, a wonderful fun filled day with lots of conection and meaning everywhere I turned.


quiet today

Sunday, August 12, 2007

I am quiet today, partly do to the extreme heat here, partly because I was so active all week I am making myself be quiet today so I can recharge and be energetic this next week which is my last chance to do early morning classes at the gym. I start back to work one week from tomorrow. I was at 198 pounds this morning but according to the scale dehydrated. I have not been very hungry today and I need to go grocery shopping to get fruit and vegies. Andy was busy and wouldnt take me to the flea market so maybe when it cools down I will walk to the store an get a few things there. I have done a 30 minute Yoga routine with a dvd this afternoon and got even more quiet within myself today. I put another one in but at the moment am not in the mood to push myself.


I AM CONTENT! An Excellent Day!

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

I feel wonderful. MIND BODY AND SPIRIT! This has been a wonderful day lots of exercise. I did a spin class today! 45 minutes , did 30 min of elliptical, 30 min swim, walked 8 miles in 140 minutes, and Yoga class 3005 minutes of exercise. Mostly cardio with a little stregth and flexibility in Yoga. MJ brought me my favorite for dinner , thai food that she made and brought me an adequate serving for dinner and it was delicious. I gave her a key to my apartment, she said " I know you trust me fully now " It is so good to have a best friend, a best girl friend. The gym has given me so many gifts. MJ is one of those gifts. I would not have met her if I had not joined the gym, we had both been here for years and had not met each other and I would not have met her if I had not been unemployed this summer and taking Yoga class. I love Yoga class, I smile all day long after I have it in the morning and am still smiling the next day too. When I hear my instructors voice I get very calm. " Maybe I have been Yoga brain washed " LOL
LIfe is good, I am content.

    I really can't remember what lead me to your home page, but I thought we had a lot in common after reading about you. Congratulations on your weight loss and in having such an amazing day. I often start my morning working in my garden. That is where I feel peace and joy "amid the storm." I'm surrounded by beautiful flowers, hummingbirds, dragon flies and delicious fresh vegetables. I'm glad I "stumbled" across your page. Wishing you continued success and a wonderful day tomorrow, as well.

Rise and shine, do yourself Proud

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

This is my mantra this morning, Rise and shine, do yourself Proud!
I am up early to get a lot of Hard Core cardio. I am walking 3 miles to the gym then using the elliptical, then swim, I will take a class possibly too this morning. My neck and upper back is finally after almost a month back to feeling 'normal' so I am excited and determined to get off of this plateau. I start back to work in 2 weeks I have to take advantage of this time and enjoy and utilize every moment of my free time. Also Gloria's words to me are ringing in my head, Inspiration, I want to inspire myself to continue yes and to SUCCEED!
