Daily Dose: On Determination

Tuesday, September 16, 2008


“Being defeated is often temporary, giving up makes it permanent.”

My Interpretation: I was injured during my last deployment. I spent months going through physical therapy and rehab and there were so many days that I just wanted to give up and stay in bed. PT was too painful and it was too much work with not a lot of progress being made. It was with the help of my family, friends and inspirational stories and quotes that kept me going. Giving up isn't an option. Keep going because being defeated is temporary. Only you can make it permanent.

Daily Dose- Make a Difference

Sunday, September 07, 2008

“If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.”

My Interpretation: I usually do my own interpretation but I couldn't agree anymore with Spark people translation. I didn't/wouldn't change a thing that they said. What if you don’t like what is going on around you? What if you see something that you disagree with or something that you know you could help with? How about doing something about it? Don’t just sit back and assume that somebody else with take care of things. Step up for yourself! Don’t be afraid or intimidated by other people if something seems important to you. You can start small. Make a difference in little ways. But little fires quickly turn into large ones with a little bit of work.

  This kind of goes with one of my favorite sayings "do what you can with what you have"... that being anything... not just physical things. Thanks for sharing!

    I like this attitude and it is really true. If you start something it seems like you will find others to help you with the project. I am learning that if you think something should be done, do it, it will provide so many rewards in the long run.

Here's to us who are actively kindling the weight loss fire and making things happen.

Zgal Beach Bound

Monday, August 25, 2008


This blog isn't anything inspirational...well except to me. I'm leaving tomorrow to visit my girlfriend for a week. It's going to be about 6 ladies hanging out at a beach house on the Outer Banks of NC. It should be a good time. A time to rejuvenate, reflect, and regain some energy. So all you Goonies have fun and take care of each other. You'll be in my thoughts. I'm going to be like a kid at Christmas. I love the beach and I've been away from it too long.
Ciao!

Setting Goals

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

"You've got to think about 'big things' while you're doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.”

My Interpretation: I read this like 3 times and every time. .. I just thought about my ice cream and it going straight to my hips. Now, I'm pretty sure that's not what the quote meant at all but funny how my mind went straight there:)- Anyway back to my real interpretation. I always heard about the importance of writing down your goals but it wasn't until the last few months that I'm a believer. It really does make a difference! I'm sticking to my plan and holding myself accountable for my actions instead of making excuses and being the procrastinator. So think about the "big things" and don't forget to reward yourself for those little triumphs:)

    This is so true. If you don't realize the larger picture, then you have a hard time reaching your final goals. You should definitely reward yourself for small triumphs because everyone is a step closer to the ultimate goal.

Sending you hugs and congratulating you for staying on track.

Believe in Yourself

Saturday, August 16, 2008


Believe in yourself; in the power you have to control your own life, day by day.
Believe in the strength that you have deep inside, and your faith will help show you the way.
Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring; let a hopeful heart carry you through. For things will work out if you trust and believe there's no limit to what you can do.
