Reset Goals

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Been a long road to redemption...
Stress has been an enemy which rears its ugly head every chance it gets.
Not letting the workplace take over my personal life.
So, I have decided to reset my goals and get into gear.

1. Five days per week - ST and cardio for 30 minutes.
2. Daily - water intake 6-8 glasses
3. Daily - Prayer and positive affirmations to self and others.

Making it short and sweet while getting to the point.

Building a better body beats boredom and backsliding.

    The faith goal will keep you moving towards the fitness goal. It will help you reset your priorities and get the perspective that you need in the face of stress. Lood guck.

    You have motivated me to rethink my goals. The one goal that I noticed that I've never added to my list is the positive thinking one. I need to really add that one, because like you said, stress is rearing its ugly head and wrecking havok on me and my life and I've allowed it. I know I have to take back my sanity. Thank you for reminding me of that. emoticon I will keep on pushing and I know you will too. emoticon

Ode to Unstoppable

Monday, September 17, 2012

Without delay...
I simply say
Your blogs took my breath away.
So soon you vanished without a trace
Only to see Our Father's face.

I sit and wonder how the day before you posted "Good News"
When it was written in His plan
Teresa...That's who He'd choose.

So as I hesitated to blog at all,
I knew she'd want me to do this
All I can say at this point is...
Unstoppable I'll surely miss.

RIP Unstoppable, my heavenly spark friend forever! emoticon

And the beat goes on...

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Plateaued.
Frustrated.
Half-azzedd motivated.
Yet I still know that I've come too far to turn back now.
A quitter never wins.
A winner never quits.
So I have chosen to push harder. Do more cardio and ST; try more reps and weights as I see fit. I WILL be consistent and make it all count. The 2 liter WILL become the six-pack.
Wait and see... emoticon
Time and effort will tell all.

Yes, the beat goes on...

Please Don't Let Me Fart!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

This is what has gone through my head too many times. (I know some of you have the same thought) Let me keep it real...
After consuming a boiled egg, slice of cheese, apple slices, peanut butter, grapes, and a grande cup of Starbuck's low-fat White Chocolate Mocha, (being lactose -intolerant) what did I expect?
Good thing my body took the time to process it all...(I ate it throughout our professional development meeting). That auditorium would've been lit up!
People scattering...
Trying to locate the nearest exit in a frenzy!
Oh no!
Are those fumes?
When all along, it would've been me...all because I farted!
Coffee anyone?

    Ah hahaha! Brought back so many memories of my sister and her SBD's....

Silent But Deadly.

Six people (four children 12 and under) trapped in a Vega (70's vintage car) while she was having SBD'S ... In the winter ... Windows rolled up... On a trip that was a minimum of 50-60 minutes, depending on how fast Dad could safely and/or legally drive...

I do better with the coffee if I use almond or coconut milk, but yea... Lactose intolerance is no fun!

I've read that meetings were the primary cause of constipation because we're not free to use the loo when we need...and a fart is "nature's trumpet" announcing that we need to go. NOW!

    Yes, this farting phenomenon is very real ;) My body usually wants to fart in meetings - I figure that is yet another good reason not to go... I am just trying to protect the innocent after all.

Thanks for the farting update. And yes, I would like coffee. Starbucks, please.
