Life is short, tell them you love them.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

When everyone is remembering 9/11, I hope that each one of you remembers the courage of each and every government worker who simply went to work the next day. For those of us who heard and/or saw planes fly past our building it is something that will never be forgotten. Each one of us heard stories of friends and family members who were lost, injured, or whose status was unknown. Some of us watched the Pentagon burn for days on end.

I work near the Pentagon. The plane that hit the Pentagon flew so close to the top of our 26-floor building that the whole building shook - I will never forget that feeling. Those of us who were there that day freak out a little every time a plane or helicopter flies a little close. We could see the fireball rising from the Pentagon & later, for days, the thick black smoke spiraling into the sky.

Life is so short. Tell the people you love, often, how precious they are to you.

Blessings to you.

    I learned that the hard way when my husband died at home unexpectedly. When he dropped me off at work earlier in the day I had said see you later insteead of goodbye.
I never got to say gloodbye to him; he died later that night when i was at work waiting for him. Now i always say I love you and good bye to my daughter when she goes somewhere.

    Oh so true, a lesson I learned the hard way back in 1984 after a personal loss but truly, truly learned 11 years ago on this day with the loss of friends I hadn't taken the time to keep touch with in the months and weeks before. Thank you for this beautiful thought on this day.

Want a nicer booty? We've got some work to do.

Monday, September 10, 2012

I saw this & just couldn't resist. Sometimes, I just need a kick in the rear & I feel pretty certain I'm not alone.

Do I want a better butt? You bet your booty (pun intended) I do!! emoticon

Time to get up & moving!!!

Have a fantastic Monday!!! Blessings to you.

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?

    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 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!
