WooHoo each personal success, no matter how small!

Monday, August 03, 2009

Babystep! What a nice way to let us know that we need to celebrate each small step towards our goal...it may not be in pounds or inches when we want it, but in knowing the difference and making better choices. Continue to take the necessary steps and the pounds and inches won't stand a chance, they will yield. Always WooHoo each personal success, no matter how small- nothing like positive reinforcement to provide the mortar that holds all the bricks together.

    Right! If I waited until I reached my ultimate goal, I'd never be happy. Too many times, we think "Oh, I've only lost one pound, but look at how much I have to go." We should celebrate the one gone! I just bought some size 22 shorts online - and I can slip them on and off without unzipping them. Wow! 3 months ago, size 22 wasn't imaginable - now I'm sending them back. emoticon

R-E-L-A-X and unwind!

Sunday, August 02, 2009

As important as it is to keep the mind, body and spirit in motion...there comes a time when everything must rest...Take the time to pamper yourself with a good nites rest, medicate and make life pause for just a few minutes, read a good book, look at a fun movie, play a board game (in this age of electronics you'd be amazed how much is bombarding your senses), power walks are great but sometimes just stroll and smell the roses, watch the birds, let the beauty and amazement of lightning and thunder awe you with it's magnificence, listen to the rain and watch the clouds roll by...reserve being hard on yourself until it is actually called for, so go take a nap, recharge those batteries/cells and thank yourself because you probably needed it.

    So true that we need to carve out time for ourselves. We often neglect our health. This was a good reminder. -- Lou

Practice makes perfect!

Saturday, August 01, 2009

A second passes in the blink of an eye, before you realize it's here, it's gone. Make the most of each day, each minute, each second. Each day is a practice run that will lead you to your goal - find what works and what does not. Reinforce the steps it takes to get there...rehearse your positive affirmations in the mirror, write them down, post them to remind yourself..."How do you get to Carnegie Hall?...Practice, practice, practice!"

Always keep planning and stay on the cutting edge!

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Life is constantly changing, and while change is not always welcomed with open arms, it does keep life interesting. I look back and see some of the changes, and wonder how I did it but the answer is simple, never stop planning and don't lock yourself in. When the wind changes, I had to adjust, be ready to steer the ship when needed to keep me on the path I wanted. Designing my healthy lifestyle has shown me the same applies here, try all different types of exercises, some will be your favorites others will not so collect a lot of different styles to fit into your changing schedule--a list of exercises for every occasion, preparing for the 'What ifs" that come along (so you'll end up with lying, standing, sitting, in motion, isometric, with and without equipment exercises, with and without a partner). The same holds true for food. Transform from a fixed to a continuous planning mode...and stayo n the cutting edge, ready to change with the wind!

    How bored we'd be if every day was exactly alike as in the movie "Groundhog Day."
