Motivation/New month

Thursday, October 31, 2013

When you motivate others to be healthy, you can't help being motivated too!

Do something.
If it doesn't work, do something else.
No idea is too crazy.
- Jim Hightower

Sometimes what we need is just a little motivation to begin. I think really that beginning is the hardest part of this journey. For me it is in the thinking " what will I lose? " I mean I won't be able to eat that, or this, or wow what about all that. But really what do we lose??? The weight, the hate, the disgust. We GAIN so much more. Strength, relaxation, love, energy. So as I end this month and move forward to another i'm given yet another chance to change the bad in my world or in my mind and make it great.

I have a plan for November and it is to plan, move, and smile through the tears. It is time to put me first and the rest will follow or get out of the way.

    A journey of a thousand miles begins with but a single step. All journeys. You didn't leave home one day and come back with a diploma that night. You did it one class, one paper, one exam at a time, and I'll bet you didn't love all of it.
