Today TAKE OUT whatever is blocking you from making a necessary change to live healthy. It could be unhealthy food in your cupboard or refrigerator. Maybe it is a negative thought saying, "I can't do this." Maybe it is a challenging coworker or friend. TAKE OUT the negative thoughts or feelings. Maybe create a positive affirmation to repeat when in the situation to lead you away from negativity.


Like you Mauri...it's the negative talk at work. It tends to filter into my day...my mantra will be

Creating positiveness around me

For me it is the drama happening in the office these days that makes me negative. My affirmation is:

I am blessed by those who surround me.

I'm going to "take-out" books from yesterday's challenge and get the girls to drop them at the library.

Take out something you need to accomplish your SP goal(s). Maybe you aren't drinking enough water. Perhaps it is decluttering your home...or holiday decorations. It could be things to be donated or recycled that are just waiting there. Take out the negative thoughts, behavior or words in your conversation. Whatever it is you need to take out of your life to help move you forward, let today be the day.
****************************************
*********************
For me, it is:
1. Take out water bottles to bring to the office. I never drink enough when there.
2. Take out the negative thoughts about returning to work after 3 days vacation.
3. Take out the bag of clothes to be donated that I packed over two of those vacation days.

I'm taking out the water bottles too Mauri! My goal for today is to drink 100 oz minimum of water!

I'll see what else I take out as the day goes on. Thank you for the challenge.

It's time to take out some things that are holding us back...

1. Take out those water bottles or glasses of water and drink, drink, drink - particularly if you live in the US.

2. Take out one negative from your day today - words, reaction to someone/thing, etc.

3. Been meaning to declutter? Take out 3 things today to recycle, trash, or donate.

What will you take out today?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm definitely taking out the water today. A heat warning has been issued for my state in the US, expecting heat index of 107*. Need to be sure I drink my water today.

Since I'm in the office this morning, I am going to take out the negative reaction to my co-worker who is a real challenge for me.

Sorry this is a little late for the East Coasters...but my Internet connection at home is acting up and I'm on the road teaching high schoolers about breast cancer this week.

This TAKE OUT THURSDAY is about taking out the negatives in your conversations today. Before you say something negative, switch it to a positive thought.

Let's see.

I took me and DH out to get my new glasses this morning, which I like very much.

Took myself to the dentist this afternoon to have my lower front teeth bonded so I don't have a gap and it made my teeth stronger, so hopefully they'll last longer.

Took myself home from the dentist and that's were I have stayed.

Took stew meat out of the refridgerator and carrots to make homemade stew and biscuits, it tasted really good on this cold winter evening.

After eating my stew took out of the refridgerator a Clementine, yum.

Took a bowl out of the cupboard put a biscuit in it,covered it with the homemade stew and took it down the hall to my friend Joyce.

It was a pretty good take out day for me.

Great idea Mauri!

Let's see what have I taken out today???

I "took" out the snow that was covering my driveway and the sidewalk when I got home! (in otherwords...I shoveled lol)
I took out some fixings for supper so that they are thawed in time to cook them.
I was wonderfully "taken out" by our department supervisor for a fun lunch time. My Baja salad was wonderful!

Today I (and my staff) took out people who were still registered for their classes for Spring but hadn't paid for them or hadn't made payment arrangements. (We'd warned 'em 3 times already!!)

This afternoon I am taking my brother out for lunch, before he goes to work. He has really helped me with driving me places, because of my car. I told him it was going to be nothing fancy or expensive. He likes the idea.
I've already taken out the garbage and the recycling this morning.

Sorry this is late...had to meet someone at 6:30 AM for breakfast! As I was choosing a "Thursday" challenge, this came across my view. With the hustle & bustle of the holiday season - no matter which holiday you celebrate - I thought it was a good one...So thank you, Wanda, for letting us borrow your idea today!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today's your day to incorporate "take-out" into your day.

Take-out the garbage.
Take-out recycling.
Take-out a friend/family member.
Take-out lunch/supper.
Take-out your teeth.

It doesn't matter what you take-out...just take-out something. Share your take-out day and inspire the rest of us to be creative.

I'm shaking things up a bit to see if we can't get some more activity happening on the challenges.

Take-Out Thursday (Huh?)

Today's your day to incorporate "take-out" into your day.

Take-out the garbage.
Take-out recycling.
Take-out a friend/family member.
Take-out lunch/supper.
Take-out your teeth.

It doesn't matter what you take-out...just take-out something. Share your take-out day and inspire the rest of us to be creative.
The point of these challenges is to have fun and get involved with your creative side.
