My September Goals

It is not enough to know what you want, you must also know why you want it, and what you will do once you have it…Creative visualization, imagination and thoughts are the tools of success. See it in your mind. Capture the feeling associated with your realized wish by assuming you have received possession of the your goal or desire. Seize every opportunity to create and visualize your dream coming true each day. Before long it will be a part of your life. Believe it! – Karen Ficarelli

 

The Road To Success Is Never Straight

Remember while traveling the road to success. It’s fun to get a little lost along the way, in fact an “explorer” is someone who is always lost.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

There is No Excuse for Excuses

To early? Your legs hurt? You were up late? You feel tired? There really isn’t an excuse good enough not to workout today. Anything worth having is worth busting your butt for. 🙂 When things start getting hard, stay committed! Put on your headphones, pump up the music, and keep going! Sometimes you just have to kick your own butt and be your own motivation. Have a great weekend everyone and keep the week’s momentum going!

Yes, you CAN!

Ditch the Excuses and Get Physical

Don’t let excuses get in the way of your wokout. Move away from negative people. They are not helpful or healthy for your progress.  Believe in yourself. The strength and confidence you need to succeed is there inside you. And remember that making time for workout is the best health  insurance. Fitness is something worth fitting into your schedule.

Make Today Your Someday

All the days that you wake up, you got one job, and that’s to get better every single day. If there is something you intended to do, but didn’t TODAY is the perfect day to change the rest of your life. Because if you can dream it, you can do it. Make it happen! Let today be your someday!

Love Your Body

At the start of the new week let’s remind ourselves that our body is like a temple. Give it the daily attention it needs. Continue to honour  your body with regular exercise and nourish it with healthy nutrition. For mental health try    meditation. It relieves stress and helps you cope with daily problems. Share your feelings. Talking to a friend about challenges and setbacks that you face in life  can help you organize your thoughts and get support. Think positive and don’t forget to smile, to love and to be happy!

Be nice to your body. Listen to your body’s needs, and treat it with dignity and love.

We all agree that losing weight, staying healthy and fit is pretty hard work….but the results are definitely worth it!

Have a good start to the week! 

Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

“It feels good sometimes—old fashioned, wholesome and gratifying—to do work that isn’t on a computer. I need some kind of distraction, some kind of release. Running has been helpful, making myself ache in a physical way to release the emotional—kind of like an acupuncture needle. My running group here is in a phase our coach calls ‘threshold training,’ which is basically his foundation for strength and endurance. Threshold pace differs for everyone, depending on your fitness and experience. So we hold steady right at the spot where it hurts, but without crossing over into real pain. Kind of like a physical therapist or masseuse who finds the exact spot that is killing you and jabs her finger right there and holds it while you pant, sweat and squirm. If she pokes there long enough, eventually the discomfort becomes tolerable. I guess that’s the point of threshold training—find your point of discomfort and work right there until you eventually acquire a vague sense of comfort. I’m glad to be here right now, poking at my threshold. I need to do this. I need the hurt, the understanding, the work and the metaphor. I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can. Maybe that spot is called I will.” – Kristin Armstrong

You Can Do What You Can’t Do

You can do what people say they can’t. It’s as simple as that. You set your own limits. If you’re willing to work hard and you have patience, you can achieve amazing things. Now, go ahead and prove that those who belittle you are wrong. You can do what you can’t do… (via www.worldofdiets.com)

Exercise To Be Healthy and Happy

Every journey has its beginning. So today set your mind towards the process of changing your lifestyle first. I believe it’s far more important than measuring a performance. Fitness is a lifestyle not a phase. You have to make exercise a regular part of your daily life… Put in place clear plans and actions that will lead you to achieve your goals. Remain focused on what is realistic and achievable. Take one step at a time and keep track of your progress. Don’t focus on the scale but rather set your focus on your proper nutrition and exercise, and work at it. Have a great day everyone! Yes, you can do it! 🙂
