Here's what's horrifying - What if you can't give 100%?
Maybe you just need to go back to the beginning
And start all over again
-Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy

I am NOT a helpless victim!

"An Amazon takes life as a constant challenge, not merely to accomplish our goals, but to excel, to better ourselves, to do whatever we set ourselves to - faster, more cleanly, more effectively than ever before" - Wonder Woman

*Motivation is taking responsibility for conscious actions.

*Muscle is more dense, so *the same volume* of muscle will, yes, weigh more than fat, but a pound of muscle is the same weight as a pound of fat. Muscle just takes up less space because it's dense.

*To increase your overall productivity, to start your day by working on the difficult tasks that will make a real difference to your progress. Resist the temptation to "Just do the easy things first " because often this means that you keep putting off the high impact tasks that will really make a difference to achieving your goals. Another advantage of is that when you are feeling less productive at the end of the day, you are often still able to complete the easy tasks on your To Do list.

*When you do something different than what you think you should do, understand that this was also your choice. Simply accept the decision you made as a valid decision made by you. It doesn�t matter whether it was right or wrong.

*Motivation is not something you find or lose, have or don't have. It is the product of how you see yourself in the world: active or passive, effective or ineffective, powerful or victimized, normal or pathological. If you want to be able to motivate yourself, you need to begin seeing yourself as active, effective, powerful, and normal.

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.

    Thanks for the goodies and kind words. I am suffering from
    some sort of mild depression or just being very sentimental,
    for absolutely no reason that I can figure. It comes and goes
    but has certainly messed with my mind. I have been going through
    the bedrooms and closets and realize how time has flown by and
    I cannot get those years back. Kind of a bummer.

    Yes, mostly SP messages. Just don't have the time or energy to deal with them after these last few days with the new agents.
