Changing things up...

Monday, June 03, 2013

While I like to work hard at things, I think it might be time to take my life a little easier...laugh more...take more time for people, rather than points.

Today on SparkCoach they talk about building muscle and reducing stress. I always find it odd that exactly what I need seems to land in my lap when I need it.

So, today I left the 10 lbs and Under team. While I liked posting daily there, just the name says I need to work harder...I think it's time for me to enjoy where I have landed and will now post daily on the Maintenance's a logical, stress-relieving progression.

    My mom & dad went through that. It's hard to watch. My visit from my cardiologist was my catalyst that launched me into making healthier choices. I have no choice regarding the genetics. However, I do have a choice in making healthy food, balance, & exercise decisions.

Keepin' on keepin' on...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

The only teacher better than the experiences of one who has gone before me, is tripping over my own mistakes.
Learning from others doesn't hurt so much.
Learning from my mistakes HURTS as I "hit the pavement" but then PAIN is a powerful teacher.

Have I hurt enough to keep on keepin on????

Only time can answer that question, but I'm counting on the answer being YES!

If it is to be, it is up to ME!

    I hope you do not have to teach yourself too much too often, that would cause a lot of pain! I think you are determined enough to keep going on no matter what, it does feel a lot better when you get over the pain. The pain is only temporary, when you reach your goal, that feeling lasts a lot longer! I too am counting on your answer to yourself is YES, because YOU are worth the results!
