Adopt the pace of nature, be patient!

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Sunday, the beginning of the new week, is always a time to practice patience. So many actions that need to take place, some at the planning stage others need to be implemented and still more to followup/followthrough on. Today, I took it outside and allowed to feel the warmth of the sun and gentle breezes take it light. Today's workout is very light, with a lot of stretching for flexibility which was nice doing outside as well. Amazing to watch the give and take between nature, now to learn to adopt this in my own life.

  


Stay positive!

It's hard to see all the beauty around you if you always looking down...so stay positive in all things you decide to do.

Make a commitment to your own success!

Friday, July 10, 2009

Although I put the Membership and Pledge card I signed at the beginning of this journey on my refrigerator, I walk by it everyday without much thought. Gaining control with my weight was the reason I joined, but I have found so much more after joining...The pledge was to make healthy and positive choices so I could live a healthy lifestyle and reach my goals...last night I broke down what that "healthy lifestyle" means for me...of course, weight management through exercises, healthier eating, proper hydration/water were on the list. Other areas I've incorporated more like BE "SELF"ish/pamper self/ME time, and last night I added a BIG ONE, stop smoking. I committed myself to losing the weight and so far I have lost 20 lbs, over half the way to my original target goal and feel confident that I have better control over it...now, onwards and upwards to getting closer to my definition of success and meeting the promise I made when I joined SP.

    Wishing you success quitting smoking. I was going to say luck, but I don't believe that it's luck that will get you there. True commitment is what you need and YOU CAN DO IT!
All the best.

Take the time to do it right, this is for you!

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I took the time to go back through my journal to...so many changes and I'm sure others to follow. The goal is to make this a healthy LIFESTYLE, and while I won't be able to take everything into consideration (striving for my newly defined level of excellence, not perfection) I am enjoying pulling my life apart to see what's ticking...getting rid of as much of those things I don't need or want as possible, and adding items like consistent exercise, eating etc. The journey is far from over...my hurt foot/leg was a result of not taking the time to do it right. While pain is a great motivator, I'd rather limit the amount I inflict upon myself...so I'm taking heed and babystepping-taking the time to did it right.

Getting back on track after a day of chaos, but the energy is proving to have been worth it...Now, onwards and upwards!

Explore. Dream. Discover.

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

There's always one way to reach a goal...never give up...dreams become a reality through actions, you'll be amazed what you will discover. I'm learning something new about myself everyday and whether I'm happy about what I see or not, taking the time to put action plans in place to handle it or celebrate. Exercising, eating properly and staying hydrated is always on the menu (yesterday was first time in a long time that I fell short but back to normal this morning. I'm staying on it!
