Feeling So truly Inspired

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Today I feel so inspired by a true friend. She helped me see that my goal is my own and to do it for me and not for everyone else. I feel that I can do anything as long as I set my mind to it. I can feel that my heart soul body and spirit is starting to work as one now because I want to reach my goal no matter how long it takes and how hard it will be for me. Every thing I have tried so far has failed and I know now that failure is part of success and for me success is what i want from this journey.

I realized that I have been hard on myself and I know now that its not right to put myself down all the time. I plan to look at my goals and change things up a little. Instead of setting goals that will take forever to accomplish I plan to set small goals first and when I reach one of them I will reward myself with something that I enjoy.

My goals are ridiculously set to high like losing 75 lbs by July I think it should be 75 lbs by January 2015 instead. I am planning on losing atleast 30 by July instead because that is almost the amount that I put on in the last few months.

I will succeed at this no matter what others think of me especially my family. I want to feel good about myself and be able to look in the mirror and say I did it. I want to see my waist line again and see my chest smaller and even have my legs stronger. I will do this my way. A good friend once told me that if you want it bad enough then go for it and you know she was right. Now she is with god in heaven and I miss her because we started this journey together. Her heart was pure gold and now I hold her in my heart and I think of the day when we walked 3 city blocks together. That is will never happen again because I dont like to walk alone.

I am walking this new journey alone so I can clean the bad thoughts I have been feeling as you could tell from my last blog. My mind has been poisoned for so long that I lost track of who I am and what I want out of life.

I swear that I will get my act together and start looking towards a better future for me and only me. I am what counts and not my family who has put me down for so long.

    YEAH!!!! Now just gotta follow through and neither of us to let our main "balloon-burster' get to us....right???!!!!

    I found that setting a goal of a certain weight didn't work for me... guess that's why I am back up 25 lbs.... maybe it should be to NOT go up ...... I have to set goals .....soon..... and spring's gotta come too.... I have to get out and walk and I think it's gotta be a schedule that I follow, like getting through that FIRST day of staying on track and maybe going for a walk after supper instead of eating.......

    For some reason my leg is swollen tonite, wonder if I am just have sympathy pains for you?
    Keep us posted and "let's get physical" as the old song says... Get that treadmill cleaned off and put it to the use you bought it for!!!

    You can do this for YOURSELF! You are worth it. Make small goals that you know are small step at a time. Do something concrete that reminds you that you are making changes in your life. Something like a sticker on a calendar when you exercise or eat can come up with what will inspire you the best. Keep up the reinforcing positive self talk....even when it might feel silly, or not true. You must become your own best friend, your own motivator. You can do it! emoticon
    Here is a spark article that might help inspire you as well:
