Get up and keep moving

When at home and I get bored, anxious, need to eat, I get up and get moving, run the vacuum whether I need to or not, find some kind of a chore to get me moving and I get re energized.

Remember You're Not Perfect

Others expect us to never make a mistake or have a bad day when we're on our weight loss / fitness journeys. And we tend to allow a single bad day as a trigger to give up. But we're human - we have bad days, and we're allowed days to "celebrate".

Muscle Weighs More Than Fat

When my weight loss seems to plateau (a regular occurence) I remind myself that the lean muscle mass I am building through exercise weighs more than fat...so as my body tones & shapes, my muscles grow. Then...the muscles burn more calories & I start to loose pounds, once again.

Random Acts of Kindness

I called the bakery late for a carrot cake, when they delivered it. I gave the guy a nice tip..he said I made his week! We took a cab and I gave the cabbie a nice tip as well..I won't always be able to give money..but to see the expressions of happiness was wonderful. I want to give one act a week!

A Journal For Joy

I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.

WHO CARES?

Don't worry about the who, what , where, when or why you do an excersize or the way YOU eat. No one else is going to do the work for you, so don't worry about looking or acting "weird". Nothing can hold you back but you!

Be thankful for who you are! You are special - a one of a kind!!

We are each very special, and we too often look at ourselves too critically picking out things we don't like. Let's be positive and look at our natural gifts and special qualities and how we can use those to help and encourage others!
