Thursday Thoughts

Thursday, May 09, 2013

So yesterday turned out to be a "good" day. It took me forever to finish the report I was working on and I didn't get in that much movement but I made a conscious effort to get up whenever I could. Today's article brings home the point that I have to own my choices and tell my story. "The story you are telling yourself at any moment is the foundation of your motivation, or lack of it. Make sure you are telling yourself the story you need to hear. And the best way to really come to believe your story is to see it come true in the small, well-chosen steps you take every day. "

I don't know why I stopped setting daily goals for awhile but I do know that it is important right now that I keep doing it.
Here is the link to today's article if you are so inclined:

Goals for today!

    I find listing what I need to get done for the day and making a kind of todo list helps me get things done faster and easier. Great thought!
The motivation articles from yesterday and today are wonderful. There is a third that fits with it:
25 Ways to Get Back on Track Today
Don't Give Up on Your Goals!
-- By Nicole Nichols, Fitness Instructor & Health Educator
The three of them together really blew me away and I am much better set to handle the ups and downs now. Thanks for starting me off emoticon

    I had a very productive work day... but it was because I wrote down what I wanted to get done. Now I need to convert that to my health journey...

    Great idea! I wrote my strength training goals down last night and they are the first things I did this morning after my walk. It really helps to get it out of your head and on paper! emoticon
