Strength, courage and wisdom!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Just wanted to share my mental strength builder today from "Strength, Courage & Wisdom" by Indie.Aire.

"Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I've been hiding for much too long
'Cause I've been, too afraid to let it show
'Cause I'm scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my face
It's been elusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, It's time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus:]
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me"

At the end of each day, I wish each of us find at least one thing that falls into each category and provide us with the energy to take the next step closer to the healthier lifestyle we are meant to have. emoticon

  


Keep your head up!

Sunday, October 18, 2009

This may sound strange to have this cross one's mind, but I'm a firm believer that once you've conquered the mind, the rest will follow, so here goes and hope you enjoy it as much as I do:

Excerpt from Dr. Seuss’ Oh the Places You’ll Go!

You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?

And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…
or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…

On and on you will hike
and I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?

Yes! You will, indeed! ( 98 and 3/4 percent guanteed)

KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

Relax and it will come!

Thursday, October 15, 2009

A lot of people live their lives in quiet desperation, feeling like they are in a pressure cooking with forces coming from all directions. With so much to do in what seems like so little time, we end up not accomplishing any task to the level we want to or truly can. It's so we can't see the forest for the trees. R-E-L-A-X and it will come.

From the simplest of tasks to any deep core toxic emotons, giving oneself permission to recognize the problem and pick them apart so you can work through them...dare to stay with the problem for there is a solution that's right for you. Challenge yourself and take the extra step...you are worth is and deserve so much.

So, sit up straight and take a deep breath...close your eyes and see the problem...keep breathing in and out, now visualize the picture you want to achieve...let the shoulders drop, and release the tension in your face. It's amazing how the chaos and our emotional reaction to the chaos makes it difficult to both see the solution and react appropriately.

So today, and everyday hereafter, give yourself permission to relax...for it will come!

Make it happen!

Monday, October 12, 2009

This is taking longer than I thought, along with the new changes to the fitness tracker...so while I've maintained my exercise routines, I've been playing around with to see how I can manipulate the new format to match my how I like to arrange my exercises and yet minimize the keystrokes needed to record my daily activities (time is precious)...I've weaved some additional time into pulling the new plan together, and now with both feet/legs working well and feeling quite pleased with how I have been able to maintain--the goals are: 1) continue to work towards my goal of 125#; 2) build more muscle definition; and 3)maintain a healthy nutritional balance.
