Good morning all,

Below is a link to my other page which is set to public

my.sparkpeople.com/INNER-ME

I have been posting blogs with images on this page to illustrate the 'Feel Good Moments' posts at 'Country Living'. Thought you might be interested in what is happening.

Another frosty morning.

Good morning everyone,

I am back from my partial break and would love to say: Goal Met. I did not achieve everything I was hoping to but I did achieve about 75% of it so it was worth it because even 75% is a good outcome.

One of the tasks I set myself was to analyse how I have been going and what I need to do to reach my goal. I also looked at ways of improving my participation in the team that I am a co-leader for; Country Living. Also I created another identity for myself – Inner-Me – which will be set to public and I will be posting blogs there about the inner changes I wish to make.

So bring on August
Sandra

Good morning all, I will be taking a partial sparking break during July, I have a lot of unfinished tasks to complete and there are only so many hours in the mornings before work and in the evenings after work. I will try and keep my streaks alive during this time.

Is everyone doing something positive today? Declare your own independence from negative self talk and feeling bad about yourself! Declare this YOUR Independence Day!

I've been working on my vision collage for the last couple of weeks and cut out some phrases from magazines, that really spoke to me and I found inspiring. They were not credited to any specific author in the magazine but in order to be sure that I won't be accused of plagiarism, I will say I found them in Woman's World, in May & June 2012.

"You don't have to be perfect to be amazing."

"Clean slates, fresh starts and new beginnings are always possible."

"A little extra effort still goes a long way."

"You are completely capable."

"Stress doesn't deserve a starring role in your life."

"Maximize your chances. Believe in yourself."

"You are more powerful than you realize."

"Love is all about the little things."

"It may not be easy but everything is possible."

I have recently found a bunch of Audrey Hepburn quotes that I never realized were her's and I really like. Here are a few of them:

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

While the character is fictional, I love this:

I also love these:

"Whether you think that you can or think that you can't, you're right." Henry Ford

".........this life is not a dress rehearsal" Barry Manilow (and, I'm sure, many others!)

Make this day YOURS!!!!!

I found these on a remakable sparkers blogg
Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do.

I don't have a diet to offer or a special exercise routine. I have philosophies called ~Indyisms:

Indygirl's words of wisdom: (Indyisms) Quotes by Beth

Don't wait to be thin to act thin. Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now. ~Indygirl

D.A.S. Dress the part. Act the part. Suck it up. ~Indygirl (my first mantra)

Aim for better every day, never perfect right away. ~Indygirl

I remember giving up my choices. That's actually what living an unhealthy life is about. ~Indygirl

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl (first spoken by me at the 2009 Spark Your Life convention)

One slice of pizza is always going to have less calories than two. ~Indygirl

Never treat your body like a garbage disposal for leftovers. ~Indygirl

If you think 'I may as well', then change it to 'I may as well not'. ~Indygirl

Lose, maintain, just don't gain. ~Indygirl

Tea and sympathy, not cake and apathy. ~Indygirl

Baby steps. Leaping in wears you out. Then you quit. ~Indygirl

You don't have to be perfect you just have to stick with it. ~Indygirl

Dream big, step small, and keep going. ~Indygirl

Look at weight regain like a bad haircut, it's temporary and will fix itself with proper care and maintenance. ~Indygirl

That which I cannot do now is my aspiration, not my defeat. ~Indygirl

Don't put your thoughts toward what might have been, put your energy into what is possible. ~Indygirl

Having a bad day is like getting a flat tire. You fix it and get back on the road; you don't have a tantrum & go around popping holes in the other 3 tires! ~Indygirl

When you make a wrong turn on the road, your GPS does not go berserk, berate you and drive you off a cliff. It calmly tells you to get back on track. ~Indygirl

Plateaus only SEEM to last forever, but if you kick and stomp and go at them, they crash to the ground and you can dance on their dirt! ~Indygirl

Find your inner CAUSE that requires a higher fitness level. THAT will be your rock. ~Indygirl

The point is that there is always something you can do if you think out of the box. In fact, throw the box away. ~Indygirl

Don't binge on something just to keep yourself from binging on it later or to get it out of the house. That's silly. ~Indygirl (guilty of it)

I lost my weight choice by choice. ~Indygirl

Remember to fill your life, not your stomach. ~Indygirl

Get healthy and fit like it's your career. ~Indygirl

Forget what negative/ energy drainers say and go the other way. ~Indygirl

Eat right, not light. ~Indygirl

Push yourself gently in the right direction, but don't push so hard that you push yourself down. ~Indygirl

Change your life and you change your weight, not the other way around. ~Indygirl

To get fat unglued, eat healthier food. ~Indygirl




And My personal mantra "I over come the odds. The odds do not over come me

I OVERCOME THE ODDS. THE ODDS DO NOT OVERCOME ME.

Even a catipillar has to work at being a butterfly.

Here is a forum to help encourage/motivate our teammates and ourselves. You can post encouraging thoughts, quotes, articles, photos; if it's encouraging, it's allowed here!

Here's a few encourgaing quotes to start off:

"Whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you set this goal in the first place." ~Unknown

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway."
~Mary Kay Ash

Love to you
~C
