Think small and achieve big!

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

The big picture is so very big to take on all at one time...so chopping it down to sizes that I can handle has made a big difference...Instead of saying I need to lose 35 lbs, I asked for 1 pound each week and grateful if I remained the same weight, happy to get rid of that 1 lb and, of course, overjoyed if I lost 2-3. I wouldn't take for granted the fact that maintaining or losing weight was by some random act, but because of something I was doing...I love to write, so journalizing my journey fit right in, and the nutrition and fitness tracker were just the tools to help me analyze what I was eating, when I was eating it and I'm mix the combinations to see if it made a difference in how I felt if I ate more of this or that food in the morning as opposed to the afternoon or the evening, separately and in conjunction with my exercise routine...I am worth the time, I am worth the effort, I deserve the best, it was just a matter of going beyond talking the talk, but walking the walk...babysteps... thinking small to achieve not just big but lasting results!

    Good job. Always think about the story of Tortoise and the Hare. The tortoise won the race with his small even steady pace. You don't have to take big giant leaps like the hare in order to achieve. Keep taking it slow.

Renew yourself daily!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

It's important to celebrate each goal that has been reached. It is also important to pay attention to the details and our commitment to our goals. It's all the small things that have come together to make the goals reached possible. Renew yourself daily by taking a look at all the small, but important, changes that led up to your accomplishments; at the same time, take a look at the small actions that could have turned a failure into a success and recommit to choosing better the next time...Renewing yourself helps to re-energize ourselves to take on another day with all it's ups and downs!

Accentuate the positive!

Monday, August 24, 2009

Positive self-talk is a great tool I use all the time to move me along the journey to a healthier lifestyle... I don't know how many people use the calendars on their computer like I do, but yesterday I sprinkled my calendar with some of my favorite quotes and this morning I was pleasantly greeted with the knowledge that:

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."- Christopher Robin to Pooh

Good morning world!

  


Be all of who you are!

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Last night I was watching Catwoman, the movie for the 100th time, and the following line jumped out at me while I was contemplating the new smoking level I would be attempting starting today.

“By accepting who you are, all of who you are, you can be free. And freedom is power.”

One step at a time to a new lifestyle requires patience to build new habits, replacing the old with the new...a new way of thinking and behaving towards myself and life. The old excuses work hard to keep pulling back to the old status quo, but the excitement that has been coming with each accomplishment and what I am learning from my failures keeps filling my sails to move forward...The ultimate reward, to be all of who I am! There is indeed a freedom that is felt as I manage my life better and the direction I want to go and POWER, absolutely!

Hope everyone is having a great day...if not make it one; you deserve no l ess! emoticon

Step up to the plate!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

When you start on a new journey, there's always a bit of apprehension...fear that you won't be successful...What is often overlooked is the opportunity...to be successful...if it doesn't work, you've lost nothing, but if it does, the gains are immeasureable.

"Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond that pain." --Kahlil Gibran

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face." -Eleanor Roosevelt

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." --T.S. Eliot
