Regret that workout? Probably not!

Sunday, September 09, 2012



I have been wrestling with myself today about whether or not to work out & then I saw this. emoticon

I know I won't regret it & it will probably even make me feel better, so guess what I'm going to do now? emoticon

See ya later!

Blessings to you!

    Great post! I love those quotes to get me moving or help me stick to the "plan". I have a question though, I've been to the "Motivational Quotes" page here, but can't figure out how to put them on my blog or Spark page. Can you tell me how you do it?
Thanks!
Cindy

    Great quote. When you want to stop, you never regret going on. Now, I'm a little stiff from my walk this AM, but it's a good stiff. emoticon

    Good for you! I have a quote I keep on my phone "Think of your workouts as important meetings you've scheduled with yourself. Bosses don't cancel. I visit that quote when I feel like putting off a workout or I get home from work too tired....it works emoticon

One step at a time, one good decision at a time.

Saturday, September 08, 2012



Sometimes I think my progress is really slow. I have to realize that I didn't put on this weight overnight -- it was over the course of nearly 20 years. It's not going to take me 20 years to get rid of it, but it is going to take time.

I just have to take one step at a time, make one good decision at a time & repeat, over & over & over. No matter how slow I am, I am still faster than the couch potato.

Blessings to you! emoticon

Keep your eyes on the prize!

Friday, September 07, 2012



One of the things that SparkPeople had me do when I first started this journey was to come up with a collage of visual motivators. How smart of them to recommend that!!

I actually had 2 pages. One, I named Motivation. That collage contains pictures of me over the past couple of years, along with the information I had listed on my motivation worksheet - my reasons for wanting to lose this weight.

The second collage, I named Inspiration. That collage contains pictures of me when I was in my early 20s & very fit & trim, along with before & after photos of people who have lost lots of weight.

When I am having a bad day & feel like throwing in the healthy eating towel, or if I don't feel like doing my workout for the day, all I need to do is go look at those 2 pages on my fridge. They are my motivation & inspiration. They help me keep my eye on the prize.

Blessings to you!!

    Such a great idea. I have not done this yet. And I need/want to take pics of me now so I can see the progress. Also, because I need to see the reality. I'm pretty sure I only have skinny mirrors here at home. ;-)

Great work on the collage - and thanks for the reminder!

Count your blessings

Thursday, September 06, 2012



Sometimes life is just hard!! Unfortunately, that happens to all of us. When I get bogged down in my circumstances & can't see a way out, I have learned (with much, much practice) to stop & count my blessings.

I have so much to be thankful for. I have a job that I really like that pays me a decent salary (even though the commute isn't the greatest & I have to get up before the roosters). My health is good. I have a wonderful husband, a wonderful family & wonderful friends. I have a vehicle to drive, clothes on my back, shoes on my feet & a roof over my head.

So many of those things we take for granted & I don't want to do that anymore. I want to be thankful for everything that I have.

Soooooo, if you're having a rough day, just sit down with a notepad & pen & start to count your blessings. If you can't think of any, just be thankful that the sun came up this morning or that you are breathing.

Have a blessed evening!!

You could be soooooo close to tipping the scales (pun intended) in your favor.

Don't you quit!! You are worth fighting for!

    Obstacles only happen when you're moving forward. So next time you hit an obstacle - be excited and enthusiastically curious about how to smash it!
