"What I’ve learned about being angry with people is that it generally hurts you more than it hurts them." - Oprah Winfrey.

There is too much drama going on around me and all it's doing is causing a world of hurt. Think twice before you get angered by someone. Who are you hurting more? Them or yourself?

"Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable." - Denis Waitley

There are somethings in this life that are changeable and unchangeable. Change what you can, accept it if you can't change it. I would love to change the amount of freckles I have, but that's an impossiblity! I would love to change my body shape, but that's an impossibility! What I can change is weight and attitude.

"Stop beating yourself up for what you didn't do and start praising yourself for all that you did do." - Gunnar Peterson

Gunnar is a trainer to the stars. He's not only a trainer, but a motivational speaker. I've just begun reading his book G-Force and I already have a renewed sense of motivation and I've finally figured out what I have been doing wrong! I can't wait to finish his book and begin on my journey with all my wheels in motion!

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." - Johnny Cash

Failure is such a downer... But only if you let it be. Build on your failure. Learn from your failures and move on! Don't let failure consume you! Beat it!

"Don't allow your past to dictate your future, but remind you of the person you'd like to be tomorrow."
Anonymous

I can't think of how many times I've tried and failed at losing weight. So in my current venture I will think back on those times and remember the mistakes I made so that I can be sure not to make them again. I'm not going to allow my past to let me feel like a failure, instead I will be motivated and aware by remembering my past mistakes.

"Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tone the spirit just as exercise conditions the body." - Arnold Schwarzenegger

Think about what effect your exercise has had on you spirit and mind as well as your body. Do you mentally feel in better shape? Less stress? Happier? I know that when I'm exercising I feel better! I'm able to release stress and enjoy life!

I like this one because it reaffirms my need to make fitness and health a habit not a whim.

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.
AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES." - Nike Ad

I got chills as I read this... NEVER let anyone tell you or make you believe you CAN'T do something! Use their negativity as motivation and show them YES YOU CAN!

You don't know who you are until you try something. Have you ever climbed a mountain? Than you don't know if you're a moutain climber! This quote makes me want to try everything I never thought I could do! Who knows it may be who I am!

I'm an idiot and didn't see this post so I started a different thread in the general area! Blonde day I guess!!!!
Here's my quote for the day:
Gotta give some to get some -- Billy Blanks
Quote from yesterday:
Where I am today is where my mind put me, where I'll be tomorrow is where my mind put me. -- Billy Blanks

Both quotes come from Billy Blanks. The man responsible for my 36 lb weight loss so far and the new found good feeling I have in myself. If it weren't for those quotes I'd still be 212 lbs.

"Not admiring a mistake is a bigger mistake." - Robert Half

When we get off track, many times we (especially me) try to ignore it. By ignoring it, it helps to keep us off track and make it harder to get back into the groove of tracking. Plus, we learn from our mistakes. Acknowledge the mistake, learn from it, and move forward.

"I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say." -Ingrid Bergman

I try to live my life with no regrets. I feel that if I were to do ANYTHING different in my life I wouldn't be where I am today. I like who I am today, for the most part. I love the people who surround me and I like where I am headed. I may have screwed up in the past, but who hasn't? And had I not screwed up I wouldn't be where I am!

"Life is a garden... Dig it" - Joe Dirt

This quote always comes into my head. Life is going to be a variety of things, but no matter what you have to dig it. It's also one of those things where you don't get a beautiful garden unless you do some digging. Plus I crack up just thinking about Joe Dirt, mullet and all, saying it!

HAPPY JUNE!

" It's hard to beat a person who believes in his or her own strength. And I believe in mine." - Maria Uman

I came across this a while ago when looking for something to keep me motivated. It was written not by someone famous, or well-known, but just a person like me. And for that person to believe that much in themself motivates me to believe in my self.
