Power of intention

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Today I will:

Take better care of myself
Not sleep in
Workout in the mornings
Cook my healthy meals
Keep better track of my calories
Do yoga
Keep lifting weights
Do 9 mikes on the treadmill
Let go of the past to bring in the future
Knit for fun
Study for CPA
Prepare for interview
Put clothes away
Drink more water
Make promise to pickup photos and make an appointment on Wednesday
Attend fun walk/run on Thursday
Attend fitness class on Sunday
Look up schedule to do Zumba
Sign up for workshops at Montgomery works
Apply for federal, non-profit, and private jobs

Now that I put my intentions down I will see how I will do with getting my intentions done.

Body Aches

Monday, May 12, 2014

I have been consistently losing weight. On average, it is 2 to 3 pounds a week. To help keep me going on track I have signed up for this ton of fun group which is similar to the biggest loser. We get together to do classes on watching healthy cooking demonstrations to exercise classes and can get together in addition to these classes by attending fun walk/run sessions during the week which are on Thursday and Saturday. Also, there is a fitness class held at a fitness center every Sunday. I ended up going to the fitness class and it was intense. My body still aches from it. Despite the aches, it was worth it attending this fitness class. I feel my confidence coming back with each new step I take towards my weight loss goal. The great thing too is I am not alone in fighting to stay fit and healthy. I have others that are doing the same thing as me with the same intention of losing weight, staying fit and healthy. The other great thing is we all can be connected through Facebook to encourage each other and also to get together on our own.

Week after being letting go

Friday, March 28, 2014

Today is the 7th day since finding out I was being laid off at work. So far I have kept myself on track with eating right and exercising. It has been awhile since I have done a full workout routing of not only doing treadmill work, but also lifting weights. My body aches and I am sore. At times it feels so painful I feel like caving, but it is days like today where I realize I can't give up. Giving up is not an option because since I started this routine I have lost inches. My clothes are looser on me and I feel my confidence returning. I want this feeling to last and I know the only way I can make it last is by pushing through and persevering.


Losing my way and coming back again

Monday, March 24, 2014

For awhile I got sidetracked, mainly due to the stress I was experiencing at work. Speaking of which, I just got laid off on Friday. I knew it was coming, but it still hurts. I have been keeping myself busy by not moping around and having an accountability partner - my mom - to speak with and let her know how my day is going and what I plan to do the next day. My roommates are helping me out as well, giving me chores to do and having me get up at a certain time and workout. Between my mom and them, I got my work cut out for me. Although I was unhappy about being laid off, I feel quite blessed and loved.

  Sorry you were laid off. You are very lucky to have your mom and friends to keep your spirits up. This whole thing with having time....may be just what you need to review your life and goals. There is something else out there for you! It may take some time to find's there. Use what's there from Doe Z and start a beautiful friendship with never know what might be found. emoticon

Saw this and wanted to post

Monday, November 11, 2013

A vet said this is what he thought was a hero, but to me this is definitely something that can pertain to anybody trying to accomplish even losing weight or anything they want to in life.

To do what’s right…even if you are afraid.
To listen to the inner wisdom of your soul…and not the random opinions of others.
To be kind…and remember that sometimes the person you need to be kindest to is yourself.
To live by choice…not chance.
To pursue excellence…excel, but not compete.
To have integrity…keep your word and your commitments.
To make corrections and changes…not make excuses.
To be fair and treat all people with respect, and understand their point of view…even if you don’t agree with it.
