New Year, New You!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013



This is OUR year! This is the year to meet our goals! This is the year to recreate ourselves whether we're trying to lose weight, eat healthier, run that half marathon or marathon or whatever.

Let's get this done!! Once & for all!!

We need to keep each other encouraged & motivated. The road won't be easy. Every time you make it through a rough time, you come out on the other side stronger than ever before.



Every little bit you do is changing you, little by little, day by day. Don't worry about the scale not moving. Focus on those non-scale victories!!



If you blew it over the holidays. Don't worry about it -- just move on. There are some amazing cooks in my family & I totally wrecked my healthy eating plan. The food was amazing, but now I'm moving on.

Here are some tips to get your healthy eating plan back on track:



Don't wait until tomorrow, start today!!!



Start living your dreams today!!



Let's make this our best year ever!!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

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

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
