OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

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!

“Regardless of what came before or of what has yet to come, what matters most right now is how I choose to respond to the challenge before me. Will I lie down or will I fight? The choice is mine and I choose to finish strong.” (Dan Green)
