To much of my life was filled with anger and frustration because I said yes and did things I didn't really want to do. Thinking I would be a bad person if I said "No!" And this lead to anger and frustration and eventually emotional eating. After reading the book " You Are What You Say" pages 168-170. I now know why I had the habit of saying Yes when I meant NO! It's amazing how good it feels to be able to say No when I really want to say No! Knowledge is power.
One way I do this is practice looking in the mirror and saying the Word over and over. Just to get use to hearing myself say it.

i found this set of ashtanga dvds to be a great foundation for beginning my martial arts practice. you can work up a sweat (especially with the more advanced dvd of the two) while practicing vinyasa, kicking, and core strength.
awakening level is for anyone with basic athletic ability. once you learn it, it's a nice maintenance routine for flexibility. i had to advance awakening and practice bits of source power before i could hang with the whole 100 minutes of the latter. both are easily modified & good whole body work.
I find that the best way for me to stay focused and to help myself is to talk to other SP members. By thinking about their issues and reading their ideas, I build up my own resolve and my own toolbox of ways to help myself. It's a win-win situation.
I do what I say I do, so in chatting with others, I keep my focus on healthy practice and my own goals.
Make a list of your excuses! Lots of times, we make excuses for not exercising or not making better food choices. If you can identify these excuses, you can push past them. Don't let excuses slow you down from reaching your goals and dreams!!!
