I'm so motivated that you actually read these blogs!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Wow, I just check my SparkPage and saw so many comments on my last blog.
For a month now, I have been doing a blog on Blogspot and viewed 327 times and so far have only 1 comment! So I think I'll start also blogging here more often.

Do any of you remember the British singer, Susan Boyl? Well, she captured our hearts with the song "I Have A Dream". This morning, looking out at the ocean and the sunshine, and wonder of our planet, I can relate to that song. Now, I'll bet you are thinking my dream is to be skinny? Wrong! (No worries, I used to think that too.)

My dream is "TO LIKE MYSELF". This requires having enough respect for myself to know in-my-pink-little-heart that I am doing the best I can. The best I can do...what a mouthful! And what does it mean? Who knows? I knew what that meant when I was in college. Even though I did not know what Summa Cum Laude meant, and wasn't trying to earn honors, I did know what "my best" was. And I worked for it. I remember those nights after I put the kids to bed, that I would study at the kitchen table into the wee hours of the morning. Where is that drive now! At 64 years old, I want to earn "honors" in life. The lazy, procrastinating, fat me is shivering in her boots right about now! And she should be. With my Higher Power's help, her days are numbered!

Now my goal is to try to find that "inner me" that always wanted to give 110%. Because friends, that girl has been on a sabbatical for waay too long. I've got to find her before it's too late.
I saw my diet counselor yesterday and shared about not having any energy. She gave me a vitamin shot and I felt better almost within the hour. I came home and went for a walk...only a half-mile...but for me that was like a half-marathon. Tune in again for an update on the murder of the fat, lazy, procrastinating me! ( Is it murder or suicide? Either way it's death to the fat lady!!)

Thanks for reading. I would love comments.

    What a great blog and you sure do remind me of myself. Sometimes I feel I am my own worse enemy. Like you I should be giving 110% as did that when much younger and now I'm just hanging in there doing what I can but it should be more. Exercising for me every day is still a problem area--so what's wrong with me as feel great when I exercise more! Hang in there and take baby steps to the person who you will like and obviously spend the rest of your life with--but, a new improved version of You.

    Hugs,

    Jill

    O, I had a good friend one time, who spent a lot of time on her sailboat near Miami! So I can visualize your surroundings well. YOU CAN DO IT! You can feel better! Bring on the veggies and take your vitamins, and walk 5 minutes every day.... I ate right and lost about 30 pounds before I added exercise, but then I committed to 10 minutes (told myself, I can do 10 minutes) on a treadmill. It was amazing how much that improved my metabolism, my strength, and my desire to do more. I'm now walking 23 minutes (1.5 miles) at a time, most days twice a day, on my treadmill and "feel" SOOOOOO much better. Look in the mirror and "like" yourself! You will be the better for it! And btw, where is your sailboat? I have a friend in Panama City. emoticon emoticon loved your blog!
