The habit of victory.

Friday, March 29, 2013



We all want to win this "race" that we're on -- not that it's really a race, but I guess you could consider it a very slow race, right? It's going to take some time.

What is victory all about anyway?



Basically, if you want to win this "race" you need to conquer your own desires. Your desire may be to sit every night in front of the TV while you eat a huge slice of cake, but that's not going to cause you to be victorious. You need to work for it.



Challenge yourself:



What are you going to do today that will lead you to victory?

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

I need one of these t-shirts!! emoticon One with the SP logo would be neat, don't you think?

I hope you all are well. I'm still fighting this creeping crud that started out as a sinus infection because of a horribly stinky, heavy pollinated plant down the hall from my cube at work. I've been on antibiotics since Monday, but one of the dangers of having asthma is that any junk that starts in your head will move into your chest. No fun!!!

I sooooo miss going to the gym. My little girl muscles crave it, but it's not smart to do that right now. I'll just rest until after Easter & hopefully I'll be good to go.

Even if things aren't going all that great, look for the good in your day.



Look for the path just on the other side of the mountain. We all have our mountains, right?



One foot in front of the other.



It's Spring!! Decorate your soul.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I guess the best way to avoid these kind of things in the office (the plant) is for the office (confined space) to have rules of consideration for others that will be inflected from the plant or even perfumes. I stopped wearing perfume because so many people are becoming allergic to it.

    Sorry you are under the weather. I have had three back to back brochitis/upper respiratory infections since Sept/Oct. Everytime I start getting faster or longer with my jogs I get sick and have to start all over again! Maybe you can just do something easier at the gym. At least that way you can still do something good for yourself. Best wishes and I do hope you Spring back soon.

Slow progress is still progress, so keep going!!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013



You can do this. I can do this. I'm determined I'm going to win this battle!! It's going to be difficult & we're going to get tired & frustrated. After all, it tends to be a long journey.



If you give up, you'll miss all of the blessings along the way.



Turn your challenges into strengths.



Always, always, always remember why you started.



Don't forget to dance when it rains.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Slow weight lost has a better chance of staying lost. When you lose weight quickly it seems to find you quicker.

Slow and steady keeps you on course for the long run

No one can do it for you!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013



It's your journey & your journey alone, whether you are trying to lose weight or you're training for a race. People can come with you, but everyone is unique & different & your path may be a bit different. That's ok -- if we all were the same, this life would be so boring, right? emoticon

Discipline is one of the keys. No one really likes that word, but it's an important one.



Another important fact:



Don't forget that exercise should be a reward:



Give it all you've got!!



Remember, it's a lifestyle, not a diet:



You CAN do this!! I CAN do this!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
