OCCUPY: My 2015 Journey to Victory

January 6, 2015

My watchword to walk out in 2015 is OCCUPY (see blog for this date). To occupy means:

1. To fill up (time or space).
2. To dwell or reside in.
3. To hold or fill.
4. To seize possession of and maintain control over forcibly or by conquest.
5. To engage or employ the attention or concentration of.

For me it means to take ownership and fully possess a thing. Thus I begin today to fully "OCCUPY" my healthy ...

Happy New Year! December 29, 2014

As we finish up the last few days of 2014, we have 365 new days coming to us with which to do great things. As I begin anew today for a year of thoughts here, I am excited to make the best of each new day ahead by remembering each new breath bring opportunity to choose great things. My goals for 2015 are simple: firm up what I have.

*Firm up – good habits and improve upon them.
*Firm up – eating for life.
*Firm up – exercise regimen.
*Firm up – healthful thinking. Taking every thought captive and making it work for me instead of against me is the goal.
*Firm up – motives for life. Recognizing and realizing the motives for the things I do is a great aid to my progress.

Another goal I have to help my progress is to end each day by realizing the progress made and the good successes achieved. I have a tendency to beat myself up in a fall, which greatly hinders my progress. So I will give focus to realizing the successes of my journey and major on them, which greatly helps me to press forward in life.

I am very grateful for you who walk with me and encourage my journey. Together we can do this. Let’s finish strong in 2014 and press forward to own the day in every new day of 2015.

My Goals:
1. Don't just set goals, change habits!
2. Increase activity.
3. Improve diet.
4. Change from the heart by addressing thought processes and attitudes that hinder and harm my journey and motives for what I am doing.

My Program:
I struggles through the holidays, but I am ready to press forward to firming up the habits that make life and health abundant.

1. Keep my nutrition tracker, working on making sure the nutrition pie is balanced.
2 Move this bod, increasing my steps, getting in cardio and strength training throughout the week.
3. Weigh less on January 1, 2016 than on January 1, 2015.
4. I continue to try to find better coping skills for trigger tired and the rebellion when out of control situations drive me to eat haphazardly.


Personal Information:
Hi, I am Darlene, a 60 year old home maker, married to my best friend, and I struggle to take care of myself properly, like many I know. We have 3 children and their mates, 12 grandchildren, 2 great grands, and 2 dogs who think they are our children. I love the study of God's word, writing, reading, and crochet.

Other Information:
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow may never be
Now is all the time
God has gifted me
Will I use it well
Or waste it on the way
Time will surely tell
The choice I make today

Darlene,

I keep trying to try ... if that makes any sense! We had a death in the family a week and a half ago, which required a trip to N.C. for funeral and I just really got off track. I am getting back on track with the eating, but I am struggling with getting into the exercise - but I know that I must do it to be healthy! It just perplexes me how it can be so difficult to do what we know is good for us???

Thanks for visiting my sparkpage - it makes me not feel lonely. I think that I am ready for spring - need the warmth and the sunshine!

Take Care!
Gail

I was on SP all the time until we had some sickness and death in our family as well as we fostered our niece with special needs for a season. But, now I am back on Sp. I remember your profile pic but it has been awhile. Currently my family and I are preparing to go back on the mission field. That is how my husband and I met. This journey is part of that. I am working on daily starting my day with a large portion devoted to God and his word. I am working on M-F exercise and just eating when I am hungry. I am on 27 day streak currently meeting these goals. Daily asking God for fresh strength to discipline my self. I am posting daily the streak for accountability. How are you? emoticon

Darlene,

Hello again! I was wondering about how you are doing as we enter into the final week of January! I just read your comments about OCCUPY and goals with Focus - love them. Some of your comments sounds like they could have been made by me - I know what you mean about "taking thoughts captive" - we need to change our lives through the renewing of our minds - someone great gets the responsibility for that idea! We can do this when we take those thoughts captive and renew our minds by filling them with the right stuff! Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world! Hope you are accomplishing your goals!

Gail
