ONCE YOU DIG IN

Thursday, December 15, 2011

This song captures everything I feel and need for motivating myself in life - to do just about anything! I hope you will all enjoy it.

Week 2 of my re-committment has been great. I'm not doing as much as I thought I HAD to and I'm seeing results for the first time in a long time with definition in my muscles. I hate resistance training. It overwhelmed me - so I didn't do it. I got a great program from a personal trainer who sets up generic programs for those with certain goals. It is simple, and easy, and about half what I thought I HAD to do.

So here is my point, I don't know about those reading this, but it seems to me that there is just so much advice and opinion out there on what we should be doing physically. Most of what I've read and heard is overwhelming. When I'm overwhelmed - I give up, or talk myself out of doing things. (that's why my house is always a horrible mess). I think the focus should be on encouraging people to just start - set a real goal, on real paper or on Spark People and take the "baby steps" to get there. To me that is what Spark people has been all about - a Spark becoming a flame. That is exactly how it has happened for me.

It makes me think of this song by Lenny Kravitz

Lryics to "Once You Dig In"

Its time to face it
Come on in and
Join the party emoticon
Life has been waiting
For you to care
Don't try to fake it
Jump on in and
Get it started emoticon
There's so much lovin
For you to share
There is nowhere to run emoticon
There is no way to hide emoticon
Don't let it beat you
Say nice to meet you
And bye emoticon

Once you dig in
You'll find it coming
Out the other side emoticon
And once you dig in
You'll find
You'll have yourself
A good time emoticon

Wake up and shake it
You didn't make
Your contribution emoticon
There ain't no time
For you to spare
If you ain't part
Of the game
Then how can you
Find a solution? emoticon
Nobody said that
It would be fair emoticon

When the mountain is high emoticon
Just look up to the sky
Ask God to teach you
Then persevere with a smile emoticon

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Once you dig in
You'll find it coming
Out the other side
emoticon
And once you dig in
You'll find
You'll have yourself
A good time
emoticon

Once you dig in emoticon
You'll find it coming
Out the other side emoticon
And once you dig in emoticon
You'll find
You'll have yourself
A good time
emoticon

    It's a great song, too bad it's Lenny, who seriously annoys me. :-)

Welcome back to your focus!!! You're an inspiration and I know you can do it!

    Great advice. Getting started is the hard part, but small steps add up.
