It's Not Just About Weight - Dream Big Do Big - Move Closer

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Today's' soundtrack: youtu.be/W7HyLFKPoMM

Listening to Pandora today while working out - I've found that I listen to music I would have never listened to now that I'm working out. This song above: Pegate Mas - I love it. When they would sing "Move your body" I would grin and push harder.

Here's the deal - this song - the new music - it's part of this journey. It's not just about the weight. Yes, I started this journey to lose weight - I am doing it - I will succeed. But I'm expanding my world in places I didn't expect in the beginning. I'm listening to music I would never hear (and loving it). Monday, I dropped my youngest son off at driving school and then I headed to the book store for a book on sketching and then to the art store for graphite pencils, erasers and sketch books.

Sparking for me is turning into my "later" to "now" - there are so many things that I keep saying, "Man, I want to learn to do...." "I want to start...." And I always put it off. I'm not going to do that anymore.

Pegate Mas means "move closer"

If you're reading this - I challenge you to move closer to each one of your "one day" wishes/hopes/dreams/desires.

Weight is the same 274 - not a bad thing - next week, though - I'm gonna rock the weigh-in!

    I love music...it makes me want to move! I never used to play music when I worked out and now I do. And WOW-what a difference! It inspires me!
    You are so right, "why put off till tomorrow what you can do today" on anything in our lives-including artistic things like you are doing!! Good for you!!
    For one thing it keeps your mind off of food! I was telling my husband that the other day...instead of sitting in front of the TV so much (which inspires him to eat), why not wipe the dust off your guitar or electric piano? He hasn't played those in years. emoticon emoticon

    Every step forward makes a shift across the board. Sometimes we don't recognize the breadth and depth of the changes until we pause a moment and look back.

    That is a good attitude to go ahead and do the things you save for someday. I will try to do it myself.

    I like what you are saying here! Weight is just one little piece of life. Filling your life with color and music will help you get to your goal is a healthy, gentle way. Music can change my mood in a minute!
