Movie Time

When I feel down I tend to watch 1 of my 3 favorite movies of all time. Remember the Titans, Lean on Me, or The Sandlot. Each one always leaves me feeling good and ready to go to the next task!

splurging isn't all bad

I thought I really blew it over memorial week end by eating chips, cookies, brownie, and cake. But I did walk and drank lots of water. I was shocked, I only gained a fraction of a pound. So, once in a while splurge isn't all bad.

Small Steps

Feeling overwhelmed and losing discipline can be hard to rebound from. I start back when I'm sluggish by a 15 min. walk adding several 3 minute breaks through the day for exercise. It loosens me up and begins the energy. Combining that with 6 snack size healthy meals and I have retrieved the vision.

LIFES CIRCLE

Life is a mystery and has many paths to take. We pray we take the right one all the time but that doesn't always happen. Some make more wrong moves than others but that is part of life. If we learn, love and teach our young with good morals and principals we have contribute to the life circle.

Forgive yourself

If you miss the mark, eat too much, slack on the exercise, forget to track, whatever: Forgive yourself. Don't let it deter you from the goal. Pick yourself up, and brush yourself off. You are still in the game! Remember, each day we start with a Zero on the calorie and fitness tracker!

Youer than you!

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” -Dr. Seuss

There is no one else you need to be comparing yourself against.

Keep a journal

One of the best motivators I've had is to keep a journal. That way, when I'm feeling down, I can write down exactly how I'm feeling, and then it's done. And no one has to see it, but I know I've vented and gotten those icky feelings off my chest.

Food for thought

I think the quote "You are who you think you are. You become who you think you will become", has a lot of truth in it. Maybe, our thoughts do create our situations and we can begin to alter our lives with just our thoughts.... Something to think about.
