What is in store for me this week ...

Sunday, December 23, 2012

Sun ~ Dec 23
emoticon walk/jog with Kuz
emoticon Day 84 Total Body Yoga = 60 min

Today's Affirmation:
"Peace of mind is closer than you think"
Perseverance takes patience, but it reward me with more than I can ever imagine. Right now, I need to just keep going. Stick with things long enough, and eventually things will start to make sense. Thereafter, everything I do will have much more purpose and possibility. Even the things that used to confuse me will now suddenly click in a whole new way ~ and I'll be struck by a great idea that no one else has thought of yet ~ seriously? emoticon

My Positives:
Cooking breakfast for my boy ~ he came home last night.
Seeing my son in his Navy blues ~ so handsome
Hearing him laugh with his girlfriend

Mon ~ Dec 24 ~ Christmas Eve emoticon

emoticon Day 85 Energize Yoga = 20 min

Today's Affirmation:

My Positives:

Tues ~ Dec 25 ~ Christmas Day emoticon
emoticon Holiday Workout

emoticon Day 86 Energize Yoga = 20 min

Today's Affirmation:
"Endless possibilities exist for all of us"
Today I need to reduce my expectations for things may not work out exactly the way I want them to. If I'm prepared to be less than thrilled by the day's news, I'll end up happier than if I raise my hopes too high. After all, the higher my hopes, the greater the crash when they are dashed to the ground. This might seem like a pessimistic attitude to take, but it's not ~ it's just pragmatic. And pragmatism is going to help me stay on top when challenges arise.

My Positives:
emoticon woke up to a white Christmas
emoticon having both my kids under my roof ~ DD spent the night in the spare room & my son is staying in his old room during his Navy leave

Wed ~ Dec 26 ~ D.A.Y.S Countdown ~ 365
Daily Journal ~ today I started the D.A.Y.S. countdown
Activity emoticon Lunch walk = 30 min
Yoga emoticon Day 87 Energize Yoga = 20 min
Success emoticon 11,204 steps

Today's Affirmation:
"Energy and passion are contagious"
Your divergent personalities -- the kind compromiser and the feisty rebel -- will be coming together into one powerful unit today. You are connecting all your different objectives into one big project, and the stage is set for you to make quite a splash on the scene. Get the word out to your friends and family about what is going on in your life. You'll get some interesting ideas and quite a few volunteers willing to lend you a hand and give you some moral support.

My Positives:

Reach For Your Goals !!

" Make New Year's goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you're interested in fully living life in the year to come.

Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.

What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?

What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?

What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?

Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down - as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go.

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.Ē

Today's Affirmation:
"Goals that your believe in are the ones that really count."

My Positives:

Best Motivation = dedicate each mile you jog (walk, bike or whatever) to an inspiring person ~ you'll never bong mid-workout again. "I'll think of someone who reminds me that I can do more, like my mom, and I'll push so much harder during that mile. When I get home, I'll call or text all the people I though of ~ and it turns into a productive workout and a love fest." ~Marissa Stephenson, Self fitness editor

No limitations
You are not limited by what you have been or what you have done. You are empowered by what you choose to do and who you choose to be.
You cannot be held back by what you know or donít know. You are propelled forward by what you decide to learn and by making meaningful use of your knowledge.
You never have to be stuck where you are. There is always a way to get yourself moving toward where you wish to be.
There is nothing to be gained by blaming your misfortune on anyone or anything. Instead, accept where you are and embrace it as an opportunity to move on ahead.
Whatever pushes against you, also gives you a steady platform upon which to build. Whatever seems to be a limitation, is a limitation only as long as it seems to be.
Choose your direction and go. Refuse to allow anything to stand between you and the authentic fulfillment you seek. ~ Ralph Marston
