    Well said and so true... I enjoyed over a 9 mile run on Saturday. Today I just had to do some Cardio, even on an off day. 27 minutes and weight training. No lazy weekends here..

    I've been doing a lot of walking in the north Georgia mountains. Not super easy with the new hip and cane. Been doing 15-30 minutes a day at least. Lots of stairs and ramps, too. emoticon

Negative People!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I have to remind myself every day! People outside of my circle of influence, former friends, and seeing what others tolerate can really get old! I will take the action I need to resolve the negativity trying to infiltrate the life I OWN!
The negative miserable people are there in life! I've let go of those people who were supposedly friends! I turn on the rest!
Don't defend or give me reasons for them being around you! It tells me they own you! (I also have a delete key!)
emoticon

I also need all the positivity I can get. It strengthens me physically and mentally! That's powerful!
emoticon

So I try to focus on the positive.

Much love...

    Good point; clearly stated. I've left some negative people behind, and reduced contact with some negative relatives. I've sought out positive people and almost all my new runner friends are positive people for sure!!

    Complete agreement here! If you can't convert 'em, let 'em go!

I hate to say that because one of the ones I had to let go, I had been married to for nearly 22 years at the time. But when he said I couldn't make him change, I had to decide if I was willing to live with him, unchanged. The answer was no.

Hardest thing I ever did. But I wasn't doing him OR myself any favors by trying to "fix" him, either.

Sigh.

To 5K Your Way Running Team & All Needing Motivation!

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

There are days when my mind starts to play games with me and all these bs excuses start to come out!
"My stomach aches!" I THINK I have a headache." "My legs feel heavy!'
BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!
We all have these moments! Then I dive into my "Run Life" folder...









Then I look at this comparison pic of me & my Granddaughter Gianna.



6 years old & look at that determination! Really? What excuses? I'm goin' out to run!

    Great blog!
When sometimes I feel too tired to run, I can always tell myself "I can run a half a mile no matter what, and then comes my first walk break" and that is true : )

    Thank you for this!!!! I'm running the Canal Run in Hancock, MI on Saturday. I'm finding that my body is "feeling" my runs more and more.

I contribute it to 35+ years of putting my left foot into the stirrup and pulling myself into the saddle. Not to mention the bucking, jumping out of the saddle, being stepped on and kicked.

This is just what I needed to read! Thank you again!!!

    OK, well, my excuse today was that it was raining-- hard. Ok not a hurricane but I didn't want to get wet, slip, and hurt myself. So I worked out to a Coach Nichole video and did more strength training. Hopefully tomorrow!

    I'm totally motivated especially when I am surrounded by stormy circumstances....:::oh Yeah! emoticon ...:::gotta stay focused because the rewards are so worth it!
emoticon if I fall, I see resilience as the emoticon option.
Sometimes it's easy, but sometimes it's all UPHILL. emoticon
It's esp then that I think about my SP friends, others around me watching me, and lastly how I feel about myself. I sense how others too share in the uphill experiences, and it cheers me that I am not alone.
How emoticon it is to journey together. emoticon

    You certainly got my attention. I read the title and was very worried because if Monty can get unmotivated, something must be gravely wrong. I was Soooo thankful to read the blog and see that the you I have learned from was indeed his same self.
Glad that is the case.
