At one time, I was doing the 10 minute exercises during the day, but I stopped. On today, doing the TNT, I found myself doing some of the same ones I had done in the past. It is refreshing and energizing to the body and the mind. My old faithfuls had been, the wall pushup, calf raises, hip flexor, boxer just to name a few. My body feels so renewed after completing this activity. I think that should be one of my goals, to do something that will renew my mind, body, and soul during the day. I get sluggish and need to get the blood pumping in the body. Daily renewal, hm-m-m, that is what I will call it. Renew, refresh, for revival. Makes a body good.

Coach Nancy says:
Never feel bad about what you have done. Feel good about what you can do.
I saw this inspirational quote today and felt that it was just what I needed to see. I can so identify with this quote today. I am feeling so disappointed in myself because of what I have done with the progress I made the last few weeks. I often focus on the bad and wonder how I could do this to myself. I plan what I can do to get myself back on track, but don't do it. I then sink even further into the black hole trying to get out. When I saw this quote, it touched something within me. I have to know that I can do something about my dilemma. I can put in some strategies that will help me that I have not done before. I always assume that, "I got this," but at this point, I don't have this. I have to get back to where I need to be. I have to follow the plan I used before to get me to where I want to be. I know what I can do, I know what I have to do, and I know I can do it. There is another saying that goes something like this, if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. I don't want to get into that rut. If I want to be successful, which I do, I am going to have to plan. Write it down, put it where I can see it each day, and if I don't reach it that day, don't give up, because in the next second, minute, hour, day, I can get back on my plan and succeed. I can feel good about what I can do, will do, and must do to become a better me. Thanks for the quote. I cannot give up on myself.

I am trying to make my way back to the website. I have really let other things get in the way of my participation. I have maintained my weight loss, but I have missed the interactions with others. I need the push to keep moving and to get back into a routine. I am one that when winter comes my motivation tends to wane. I have lost so much motivation during this season, but I am working my way back. I can't pretend to be doing right in my life anymore. I have got to be real. If I want to fulfill the dreams and purpose for my life, I have to wake up and move. I have got to do it because no one can do it for me. As you can tell, I have been away from a lot of things lately, just going through the motions. That is not how I want to be. I want to be active and involved. Ready to take on what is out there for me.

I have not added anything for a while. I feel like I have lost my way, but I am trying to get back. I seem to just be maintaining which is what I do not want to do. I want to lose weight. I know I need to set some realistic goals for myself and stick to them. I may slide backwards, but I know with goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, etc. I saw someone's blog the other day which was an inspiration. I now need to take the time to sit down and develop goals to achieve. Setting up short-term goals which will lead to the long-term goals. Gotta get my umph back.

On Sunday the minister preached on the above topic. You can look at it several ways. For church, how bad do you want Jesus in your life and for SparkPeople, how bad do you want to change your lifestyle (weight loss, eating habits, etc.). I can say to the first, I want Jesus in my life BAD. He is the sustainer and giver of life. He gave His life that we might live and I am so grateful to Him for that. As for SparkPeople, I want that bad too. This is also another way of sustaining and giving life. With this one, I have to do the work. I have to set my goals, I have to track my food, I have to do my exercise, I have to ask for and even give support as we all go through. I want to change my lifestyle. I want to do what is right for me and also pleasing to God. I have been off track these past few days and I know that is not good for me. As I have mentioned in my writing, challenges help to give me structure. I also know that there are some other things that I need to do in order to stay focused. I need to keep my goals in front of me at all times. I don't just need to memorize them, but I need to see them. I need to start acting like I want this bad enough. I can say it all day long, but until I start doing what I say, then it will not come to pass. How bad do I want it, "I want it bad."
