Take Care of Yourself!

Be a little selfish! Take care of yourself. No one else can take care of you and you cannot take care of others if you don't put yourself first when you need to.

Truth

If I am honest to myself and to my SP community, the reasons why I have not succeeded are within my abilities to change: exercise more, eat in balance and stay in touch with the goals and the footpath of steps I need to take to get there.

Try Something New!

It sounds simplistic, but it's true! Before I joined SP, if you told me I would like the elliptical, using Kettlebells and would even own a pair of boxing gloves (Susan G Komen pink!), I would be sure you were nuts! But I love trying these things. (Some day I will even be good at them!)

There's No Shame in Hitting "Reset"

I posted a blog this morning after floundering for too long. I shared honestly where I am and what I need to do to get back on track. The support I've received is heartwarming. The freedom of being honest with myself and sharing that is an unexpected bonus.

Uplift Me!

One of my "other" goals is a daily "uplift me" goal. As I am driving to work, I either give me lots of positive self-talk, I roleplay something for work with a positive outcome or I sing positive songs. By the time I get to work, I am geared up for a positive day!

Music as a Mood Lifter

Sometimes life gets me down - things not going well at work or home, loss, scale, lack of energy, etc. I popped in a CD of some uplifting & soothing music. Then I took a walk, enjoying the songbirds and beauty outdoors.

Save $, Add Variety & Eat Healthy

I shop at a grocery outlet store, the kind of place where you buy as much of whatever product you see because it may not be there the next time. I buy very healthy cereal for about $2 a box. I have a great big plastic storage box at home where I pour the cereal and mix it. Then I fill a standard cereal Tupperware type canister to serve from. I measure my cereal every morning .

Keep Workout Shoes Handy

I have a pair of workout shoes in my car, at my desk at work and, of course, at home. Cuts down on the excuses for not moving my feet.

Fit & Fresh

I love these products! I prepare my lunch the night before & everything is measured, stays fresh and, with the ice packs & my cooler, I can keep at my desk instead of the shared fridge where food is so often taken.
