Do the thing you think you cannot do.

Sunday, December 30, 2012



Gotta emoticon Eleanor Roosevelt. She has some awesome quotes!!

What is it you think you cannot do? Some days I think I cannot eat healthy. Some days I think I cannot exercise. Some days it's just a huge undertaking, but I have to take a step back. I'm trying to look at the big picture. Instead, I need to break this down into smaller chunks so that it doesn't look so daunting.

Yes, I can eat a healthy breakfast. Yes, I can eat a healthy snack. Yes, I can eat a healthy lunch, etc. If looking at the whole day is too much, just look at one meal or one snack at a time.

As for exercise, go see your co-worker face to face instead of sending an email. Take the long way around to go to the restroom. Take 1/2 of your lunch break & go for a walk or just walk in place. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. It all adds up.



Keep moving forward.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Your calming thoughts make me realise that even our biggest plans and dreams are possible and doable if we just figure out the steps and then get in and do them, all the while keeping our hearts positive and our eyes fixed on the result we want.

I hope 2013 is an awesome one for you!

    when i was working i only had a half and hour for lunch. so could not exercise, i did walk up 2 flights of stairs going up and down.
did not understand why they wanted nurses aids to give up a lunch break to exercise. you need calories. when i ate chineese food i did have the rice. did not miss it

but now i am retired. and you inspired me to get out an exercise tape and do it. thanks

    Timely - I'm thinking of goals for 2013 and have already heard myself saying " I probably won't manage that" or " I won't be able to stick to that", when in reality I certainly could with the right attitude.

Positive attitude -- be a carrier.

Friday, December 28, 2012



There have been days when I've been a little grumpy -- ok, sometimes a LOT grumpy. Haven't we all? You don't sleep well & the coffee just isn't doing it for you. When I'm not on leave, I get up super early to go to work, so exercising in the morning really isn't an option unless I want to get up at 2:45 a.m. -- that is soooooo not happening.

Trying to get into a good mood when you woke up on the wrong side of the bed is hard. But, I try to "get happy" anyway before I get to my carpool. Otherwise, they get to see the Grumpy Gus side of me. I don't like being grumpy so I have decided that having a positive attitude is a choice. Things are just so much better when I'm in a good mood.



One of the ways that works for me is to get to the commuter lot a little early & read The Good Book (Bible) as I listen to some of my favorite music. Works every time!!

I do a little exercise at lunch time to give me that afternoon mood boost & then I stop by the gym to work out on my way home (most nights) so I get another mood boost before I get home. This mood boosting schedule has been working well for me, thankfully.

I don't like to be a Grumpy Gus. Besides:



emoticon

No Grumpy Gus today!! Keep smiling!! Be a carrier of a positive attitude where ever you go.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Live life to the fullest.

Thursday, December 27, 2012



The thing about living life to the fullest is that there are going to be days that are not so great. I used to hate those days, but I have come to realize that without those rough days, I wouldn't appreciate the good days as much -- I'd take them for granted. I don't ever want to take anything for granted.

There are days that you are going to fail, but:



Pick yourself up & keep moving forward.

Remember that:



Also keep this in mind:



Push through the rough days as best as you can. Your SparkFriends are here to help you.



Thanks to all of you who have helped me through the rough days.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
