The Happy Creepy Freak!

"They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us.
They will not control us,
We will be victorious!!" - Muse, Uprising

I am too courageous to be forced as I am not afraid of a new path.
I am too strong in my belief in myself to be degraded.
I am too able to change to be controlled.
I am victory and my life is my own.

I have been through too much to ever give up on myself. I may not have much certainty in my life but I cannot ...

I am too courageous to be forced as I am not afraid of a new path.
I am too strong in my belief in myself to be degraded.
I am too able to change to be controlled.
I am victory and my life is my own.

I have been through too much to ever give up on myself. I may not have much certainty in my life but I cannot be a leaf on the breeze. I am the phoenix rising from the ashes. I will fly and fight to live my life. I control what I can and will never give in. I cannot be defeated as I will never give up.

I’m a fighter, a scrapper. No one said life is easy but I can make mine worth living. I have love and friendship and a will that cannot be defeated.

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!
