You got one job . . .

Friday, March 01, 2013



What can you do today to make your healthy eating plan better than yesterday? What can you do today to make your workout better than yesterday? What can you do today to make YOU better than yesterday.

It's not a race. It's not a competition. You're only competing with YOU and . . .



Enjoy the journey. Learn some things about yourself along the way.



Just go!!!



It won't always be easy, but . . .



Finally:



[Today], you got one job, and that's to get better every single day. ~ Derrick Rose ~

Are you with me?

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

How to use a scale & other neat info. ;-)

Thursday, February 28, 2013



Who knew, right? I've been doing it wrong all this time!!! emoticon

What do you eat when you're with your friends?



Diet? Or healthy eating?



Use your mistakes as stepping stones.



Healthy eating & exercise require a commitment.



You are beautiful, like a rainbow.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Live your life & forget your age.

Wednesday, February 27, 2013



There are some days I feel older than I am, especially in the winter -- but I have to say, after exercising regularly & consistently for the last 6 months, I can tell that I feel much younger than last winter. That's a great thing!!

I go to an all-women's gym and there are three ladies there who are "recycled teen-agers." Two of them are in their early- to mid-70s & the other one will be 90 in May.

Let me tell you something, those ladies can exercise CIRCLES around most of us in there AND they all look far younger than they truly are. If you had told me Ms. Pat was nearly 90, I would think you were telling me a super tall tale. Let me tell you, that woman can Zumba like nobody's business!!!

One of my gym buddies told me the other day that during morning Zumba class, Ms. Pat didn't think Ms. Emma (age 74) was working quite hard enough & Ms. Pat said, "Emma, did you come here to work out your body, or work out your jaw?" emoticon Ms. Emma, not to be out-done said, "Well, you can burn more calories if you work out both!" I am so sorry I missed that class, but I was at work. Those ladies are a trip!!

Lesson learned: Start working out now, while you're younger. You'll look younger, feel younger, act younger, add years to your life, and you can out-exercise a lot of those young whipper-snappers in the gym. I want to be like Ms. Pat, Ms. Emma & Ms. Manjit (she's the quiet one) when I grow up. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

  I am blessed to live in an apartment complex that has a gym. As my DH and I open the doors by 7 a.m. we can work out to our hearts content. Actually, the fact that we open up is a forced method of getting us to exercise. I am so glad that we do have that opportunity. We have been told that we don't look 77 and 75!

And I know exactly what you mean about feeling younger after exercising regularly for a while, and losing a bit of weight, I feel the same way. I can't wait to see how much younger I feel next year, after (hopefully) losing more weight and getting more fit!

The scale can ONLY tell how much you weigh.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013



It can't tell you your worth. I can assure you -- you are priceless!! You are precious!! You are amazing!!

One of the big steps on this journey that is so hard for most of us is accepting ourselves as we are. If we can do that, we will see huge changes -- for the better.



There is no way any of us will ever be perfect -- we're human. We ALL make mistakes. Just strive to be better than you were yesterday. Trust me -- it's enough.



Learn to love yourself. That is critical to the journey.



Now, here are the big questions of the day: Which steps are you going to take today to accept yourself; to love yourself; to better yourself?



emoticon if we do it together!! Are you ready? Let's go!!! emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Choices, choices, choices!!

Monday, February 25, 2013



There are lots of things we can make choices about. Choices about whether we exercise or not, what kind of exercise we do, choices to eat healthy foods . . . or not. We make hundreds of choices every day.



Choices about attitude:



Choices about circumstances, which can be connected to our attitudes:



Choices about our limitations:



Today, stop & think about the choices you make before you make them.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
