Never Giving Up...

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I cannot figure out why it's so hard for me to consistently post on SP. I think they need a SP app that includes blogging. Then I'd be SO all over that emoticon

Since my last blog, I've made some progress with my mindset and what direction I want to take my life. I have made some personal, family and career goals. I completed the PUSH 30 day challenge and it helped me a lot. I attended a conference for Tastefully Simple (my other job) at the beginning of February and decided I want to move into leadership and help others make their dreams come true. I also discovered while at church one Sunday that I want to empower girls and women between the ages of 5 to adult. There are so many people with low self esteem who have been told by society, family and or friends that they are not good enough. I want show them that that's not the case. I have goals which my business will help me obtain: to go part time by the end of the year and stay home with DD, to become certified as a Walk Leader (through Leslie Sansone's certification program), to take a certain of $ I earn in this business and give it to my church to go towards opening a new location that is closer to me.

Last week I was chatting cyberly with a good friend LESLIES537. I asked her to my E.A.P. That stands for Exercise Accountability Partner. She agreed and asked that I be hers too. I committed to posting my exercise goals for the week here every Sunday and then posting it on my Facebook page as well. I also committed to making exercise an appointment that cannot be broken. I picked up a copy of Leslie Sansone's book at the library yesterday

I am loving what I have read so far. It's a 6 week program and it's not about telling you what you can and cannot eat. It's about changing habits with how and when you eat/exercise. It's individual based. So I'm going to see about applying this to my life.

With that being said, here are my goals for the week:

*Find and install SP app so I can track my exercise and water-if it allows for both of those. I would like to do food as well but I don't want to do anything but list not counting calories.
*I will exercise Monday-15 minutes. I will drink 64 oz of water.
*I will exercise Tuesday-15 minutes. I will drink 64 oz of water.
*I will exercise Wednesday-45 minutes. I will drink 96 oz of water.
*I will exercise Thursday-20 minutes. I will drink 64 oz of water
*I will exercise Friday-20 minutes. I will drink 64 oz of water.
*I will exercise Saturday-30 minutes. I will drink 96 oz of water.

On my days off I have increased my exercise and therefore my water. As I become more familiar with the layout of this book, I will add my behavior changes I wish to modify here as well. But for right now, this is a first step for me and I am proud for what I've come up with.

I refuse to give up and will not give into defeat in any area of my life!
