No Excuses Just Daily Recommitment

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I get tired of hearing myself make excuses and whining about this or that, soooo none of this or that! I am going to have such an awesome rest of the year. When the New Year rings in, mine will be lighter physically and emotionally, as I work through my 1 lb emotional bombs. I think of each pound melting off my body and taking with it the emotion that drove me to pack it on.

I am already thankful for the me that will be!

My middle son sent me a text with the following:

T is it True
H is it helpful
I is it inspiring
N is it necessary
K is it Kind

What I love the most about this acronym is that he liked it and he knew I would too. I do! The photo is of me (center top) with my 5 children. The middle son that sent this is on far left looking at picture. They are a great group of friends as well as my children. This picture was taken last Christmas. I will be getting a new one soon because I am fortunate enough to live near all of them.

Determine that today will be a good day despite whatever the challenges are.

    Beautiful family! So glad you are able to enjoy them being close by. Sounds like you are staying positive. I know this was a very tough month for us all. Well, we will go into Dec. with a positive outlook. We will make it through the Christmas Holiday. Then start getting read for the summer months when we will have no excuses to not be active with the nice weather. We can dream of the warmer days and do what we can now to keep in shape so we can enjoy it. Well, good to hear from you. Hugs, Judy

    Its a lovely family picture. Sometimes I get so caught up in wanting them all OUT that I forget to be thankful for them. When it comes down to it, the only things that really matter are who you love and who loves you. Thanks for the reminder.

    I'm right there with you on the NO excuses! I'm going to rock 2013. I feel like it will all come together for me and I will put all the great things I've learned to use and reach my ideal weight (FINALLY!)

    Great motivation for us all! Each day has to be what you make of it - it might not be the day you planned, but it's the day you have (that's my day today). Even on my worst day I have no right not to be thankful! This time of the year gets stressful for a lot of people. We can THINK (I love the acronym from your son) about being kind to ourselves and each other. I'm here for you when you need me.
