The Scale

This week I lost one pound. I got on the scale and said sarcastically, "Oh woohoo 1 stinking pound." My friend I was going to work out with that morning said "Yes you lost a pound! It's better than nothing." Remembering to celebrate the little victories!

If You're Happy And You Know It...

Clap your hands! No, really, I'm serious. Clap your hands, do a silly dance, let out a primal YAWP! You're on an amazing journey, and you should be feeling great about yourself, even if you have had a few slips here and there. Go on, clap!

STAY CONNECTED!!!

Get together with loved ones who will support you throughout the process of obtaining your goals. Connecting with new people who are also on a similar path can help you as well. The more positive people you surround yourself with, the more likely you are to succeed.

To Thine Own Self be True~ Hamlet

In the face of adversity, follow Hamlet's wisdom of being true to yourself and your dreams. Follow through and never give up. Always persist even with the din of naysayers trying to drown out your inner voice~ to them turn a deaf ear and persist in spite of the odds. Dreams still do come true.

Always strong

You start your day, it is not what you want, fall into it or say no I am going to beat this. Really how many people over 50 wake up feeling super maybe some days but we all have those little aches and pains or big ones. We have to push ourselves more than the young and we don't stop easily. Smile

Increase Optimism by Remembering Happy Memories

In one study, people who spent eight minues a day for three days focusing on sunny memories felt more cheerful than they had the week before - and the effect lasted for four weeks. This trains your brain to look on the bright side.

get a buddy

Like in a 12 step program people get a sponsor to help them on their journey. I selected one person to tell my goals to and to check in with daily. This person keeps me motivated and pumped up. They do not let me slack either. I know I am never alone.
