Reevaluating Goals

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Today I went through all my Spark Streak Goals and other Goals and edited them .
The hardest thing to do was to lower my exercise minutes and calorie burn for the week ,
Lets face it though with an injury I can"t do my normal activities ,
For me getting well and becoming not only back to my 100 percent but reaching my goals 100 percent requires consistency ,realism , motivation and enthusiasm .
I split it up in to 4 areas that I need to work on, at least for now ,

Exercise ,
Knee care .
and Motivation.

Exercise , At least 10 minutes of exercises that exercise my whole body ,
Knee care RICE and making a schedule for all the options I want to try .
Nutrition , Water and logging on my food .
Motivation. This week I will lay out all the clothes I need for the week , Make sure I journal at least 4 times this week . and pamper myself ,
Hey just because my knee is hurt doesnt mean I have to let everything else go rough ! lol
and Spend time in refection on what is good each day along with prayer for myself and others .
The most important thing I can do this week is to let go of perfection ,

If I can do it so can you ! But Can I do it????

Saturday, December 13, 2014

How often we hear the phrase If I can do it so can you .I recently read a comment on one of my friends face book page . She posted an article on the high cost of education and how student loans are breaking some Americans budget . This woman commented something like this .
" I dont feel sorry for anyone. No one needs to take out student loans , I worked 3 jobs , Got many scholarships. Belonged to over 20 different clubs , Got the top ten percent of my class and graduated from Wellesley in the top of my class . All without taking any money from parents , having my own apartment and no loans of any kind and IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN ANYONE."
Now first of all I tried to do that math on that one , There are only so many hours in the week ! Was her story true , I would have to have more facts on how she accomplished this unbelievable feat ! One thing for certain was I could never do that nor anyone else I knew , I know some very genius level people too ! lol But she is neither here nor there , Just an example of how people compare their life to others , We all have our differences , I have no problem turning down chips but cookies forgitaboutit ! For some exercising can be enjoyable and for others a dread !
I really would like to help people and my self get fit and change my life ! So let me be brutally honest ,
I have ADD
I injured my leg recently and can hardly walk but must hold down two jobs.
I have phobias of doctors , dentists , the post office and spiders.
I have panic attacks .
I am an emotional over eater thats addicted to sweets.
I tend to awfulize everything .
I have a ton of bad health habits I need to break ,
For the positive ,
I have a great imagination .
I have a great sense of humour.
I have a deep love for my fellow man .
I really want to help others .
For starters I am going to review all my goals on Spark People. Since my leg injury trying to keep up with the exercise goals I set for myself will be impossible !
Also I wll need to add other goals that have to do with my injury ,
I hope to post at least once a week and update my goals and progress!
So maybe.... at this low point in my life , If I improve someone may just say " Hey if that Smuck can do it so can I ! "

    Reviewing one's goals regularly is a very important step. Let go of what isn't working right now, and try on different goals to see if they are a good fit. Use your imagination to find exercises that will work for you, where you are at right now. Figure out if there are things you need to fix or change or keep doing in order to move forward. Imagine where you can be at this time next year by making a few small changes and sticking with them!

Are we choosing to be our own celebrities?

Monday, August 04, 2014

I was watching a T.V gossip show the other day . On the show they were talking about people having plastic surgery to look like celebrities. One woman on the show a popular model with a reality show said' I was lucky, I hit the genetic gene pool, I don't need any surgery to make me beautiful , Now days everyone wants to be a celebrity, but I know what the people want and how to give it to them . So go ahead ! Make your Youtube's . Get your 32 views , if that's what you think will give you fame."As sh e said this she rolled her eyes and pouted.
That got me thinking about something I never considered before .Are celebrities worried that we will not look to them to set the trends anymore? Will companies look to the average Joe or Jane to help push their products from now on ? Are we looking for real people to be our inspiration? Is the standard they hold us up to getting just to high and we cant live up to it ?
First I would love to say to that super model. Honey .. I know a lot people on Youtube have a lot more then 32 hits ! Thousands , Tens of thousands in fact ! Is that making you worried dear ? That we are no longer looking to you with your perfect genes and highly paid photographers and beauty consultants , fashion consultants and P.R people for advice ? Instead we are looking at real women with real life and other jobs besides modeling who happen to want to share their advice . um for Free ! No strings attached .They are just as beautiful , some more so then you . I guess its those perfect genes. Except they are mom's or small business owners.what ever the case may be , and they are doing what you do and doing it VERY well !
For us .. Its a time that we can use this power or fall back in to the trap again. We have to let go of fake perfection that the media wants us to adapt , and start looking for real life heros. I think this is going to be really fun !
Someday I would love to write a blog sharing my favorite REAL PEOPLE on the internet that I turn to for advice ! This site also goes to prove that real people can help real people ! A couple of my favorite Spark people I look to for inspiration and motivation are JEWELS571 and KAREN _IS _HERE ! Thanks Ladies !

    So true Shell, we all keep running behind glamour which in momentary, but it is inner strength and beauty which will hold us in good stead.
