"Our destiny changes with our thoughts; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thoughts correspond with our desires." - Orison Swett Marden
I'm working really hard at changing my thought patterns! While I can be very positive and almost disgustingly upbeat (ask my non morning friends! *LOL*), I can be equally negative and oh so down! It drives me crazy! One of my first goals this year is to work on controlling, if not ejecting, the negativity from my thoughts. It won't be easy, but I KNOW I can do it!
I started my new year today and at the moment am very excited about it. I need to make some serious changes in my life (Lifestyle?) to get where I WANT to be.
Goals this far:
Turn off the TV! No more having it on for noise or company. Unless there is some thing I really wish to watch, it is not going to be on. (This will be REALLY difficult for me, but I KNOW I can do it.)
"There is no failure except in no longer trying."
Everyday I will do some form of cardio for at least 15 minutes. Be it walking on the treadmill, dancing, walking in place when I do have the tv on, doing one of my DVDs. There is no excuse not to move during my day!
I am going to try yoga. I have a DVD of yoga for big girls(Along with the book) and I am going to see if I like it. I am going to give it a fair chance and not quit because I can't do something the first, second or third time I attempt it...
I will be much more conscious of what food I bring into the house. I will consciously choose healthy food and will jut as consciously decide to have a small treat every now and then. I will avoid bringing into my home, my known trigger foods.
I will track my food honestly every day.
This is a good start and I am truly excited. I just the little while it has taken me to type this down, I feel optimistic and a sense of joy for doing something good and positive.
So now, off to have a bite of breakfast and attack my room. I have a whole other set of goals that are not health related, however I know I will most certainly reap the benefits of feeling mentally and physically accomplished and contented that I did what I set out to do! Everything is connected, isn't it.
"The secret of success is constancy of purpose."
Have a magical day!
