Put Yourself First

We make sacrifices every day that compromise our bodies and our minds. Putting my physical and mental well-being before taking care of everyone else has helped me greatly over the past few months. Learn to say NO!

Just make better food choices.

When asthma kicks in and I can't exercise, making better food choices lets me stay on track. I don't rack up the points...but I still keep moving forward.

Getting back on track Anytime. Even the same Day!

Philippians 3:13 (KJV) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Always remember after every good & bad moment is a new 1. God allows us to make new choices every second.

Push the reset button

Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.

Reach Out and let others know what is going on

It had been my tendency to hide when things were not going well and then feel isolated and alone. Now with the support of my SP teams, I reach out to others to help me get through the tough times. We all have rough patches, don't let guilt, shame or false pride get in the way of you health!!!

Dealing with times of "Overwhelm"

In general, my plan involves lots of cardio. There are just times in my life that I need to step back. I don't step out anymore - I just switch it up. Instead of running and biking, I choose walking and yoga. It seems to help renew my spirit when I'm really overwhelmed with *life* (deaths, etc).
