Each day brings new ways to reach your goals!

Sunday, November 08, 2009

I came across an SP article that discussed the benefit of compound or combination exercises...basically pulling two exercises together like side lunges with a bicep curls or squats with lateral side (or front) raises...Knowing that a change in my routine every 3-4 weeks help to prevent plateaus, I have been working diligently to pull together my new routine while holding onto my old routine...I've been maintaining my current weight of 138# plus or minus 2-3 lbs seems like forever, and I would be upset by this but I refuse to because my old plan is showing that I can maintain my weight loss...Yesterday I faught with procastination, and today was playing catch up with some room to play as I slowly stepped through one partial set of my combination exercises...and I'm feeling very confident in this new layout so far...Lookout 125#s, I'm coming for YOU! emoticon

    Great idea! I'll look at work outs that provide that dual role. I never thought about changing up my work outs every 3 to 4 weeks. Thanks! Keep it up! Tessa321

Down with procrastination!

Friday, November 06, 2009

It happens to everyone I know, but what a pain! You have a list of things to do and you just can't seem to get them done and/or don't want to do them. But the beast names PROCASTINATION must be stopped, and no matter what the project it just seems so BIG...so onward I go today, breaking everything down to more manageable portions! Wish me luck!

  


The mind is a powerful tool...use it!

Thursday, November 05, 2009

I wasn't sure what to write about today then I read one blog and one new thread posted that reinforced my belief that the mind is a powerful tool...use it...use it well and wisely and you will reach your goals.

THERE IS NO REST FOR SUCCESS

Success is a journey not a destination a year from
now you may wish you had started today.
Every beginner is a winner. Success is not escaping problems but facing them creatively.
There is no success without sacrifice.
Great success always calls for great sacrifice.
Even failure can become an important ingredient to success.
Failure just means that you have not yet succeeded.
I’d rather change my mind and succeed than have my own way and fail. Success without conflict is unrealistic.
Any person can be successful on smooth seas,
but it is the victory over the storm that gains true honor.
Success doesn’t come through the way you think it comes;
it comes through the way you think.
Never settle for less than success.
Success is doing something good.
When you can, where you can, while you can.
It’s better to attempt to do something great and fail,
than attempt to do nothing and succeed.
Success is not necessarily reaching your goal- but reaching the maximum possibilities in light of the opportunities that come your way.
To keep your values on target remember to live so that when you “arrive”, you’ll have pride behind you and hope ahead of you.
The success is truly the path to heaven.
Success is never ending, because success is like the process of seed planting. Every creative contribution like a seed planted may bear fruit.
Success finally is not what you have it is not what you do;
it is who you are, and what
you want to become of yourself.
