Wow-what a week!

Monday, March 05, 2012

Hello Blog. I made it back online after my computer issues, and have found that the great momentum I had, had has dwindled. Oh, I'm not quitting but I find myself back at the starting line emotionally.

Last week I thought I was changed forever and would never get off the road to success, and then....it happened I was unable to get logged in to Sparkpeople for two solid days.

I was all but devastated because,I had gotten to the place in my head that I just knew I was absolutely going to do this! And that isn't an easy place to find, at least it never has been for me. Anyway, it's been less than one week and I intend to get back on track even if it takes three more months to do it

I have pretty simple goals that can be done with a pencil and paper if I don't have the internet, so I've written them down in a notebook for just that reason. Now just to re-iterate my plans I'm rewriting them here, one more time:

1. Prayer and meditation, I like to start each and everyday with God things just go better when I do this.
2. Eat a good healthy breakfast before I begin the day.
3. Drink lots of water at least 8 cups a day. I number and date ea. 16 oz. bottle to make sure I drink them.
4. Walk at the rec.center 3x per week building speed and distance over time.
5 Add 2 days of resistance exercise each week building and adjusting as needed.
6. Log in to Sparkpeople for menus and calorie tracking daily
7. Huddle with my teams and encourage others anyway I can.
8. When I stumble I will get back up and begin again every single time because winners never quit and quitters never win. I'm not God- only God is perfect, don't flatter yourself thinking that you ever will be. It is not your job!!!

9. Other goals - take care of my hands and nails daily. Oil and polish cuticles and nails to strengthen them.

10. Take daily vitamins and minerals to fortify overall health.

11. Tackle one small project at home daily to attain organization of "the stuff" everywhere, this includes clothing and laundry, tools, arts and crafts, painting supplies, and the yard.

12. Now stop playing and do the dishes and wash the clothes, make the beds, vacuum and sweep the floor etc.etc.etc. repeat.

It is said that I don't have a job, but the truth is I don't have an income, but when I have all of these things finished I'll look for a real job. hehehe Now I must go take care of Mr J my main squeeze and first grandbaby! Good Luck everybody and best wishes on your success.

    I really need to implement your #12. I can motivate myself to do many things in this world...except dishes...lol!

    P.S. Serving the Lord is a full time job and it takes a very qualified individual to do this job....the pay is outstanding as well :0)

    Jobs, I don't have an income either, but do plenty of work.
    Maybe your difficulty with consistency is that you have too many goals, that is the way I was before, and have tried to down play them. Have fewer things that I need to accomplish so that I can be consistent and then add things to them.

    We can do this together. Praise the Lord!!!

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Don't ever think you don't have a REAL job already! You have the best, most important rewarding job there is and you don't have taxes to pay on it either! :)

    PS this is a journey and there will be roadblocks, detours and construction, but with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! Besides if it was all quick and easy we'd get bored with it! Hehehe!

    Try not to beat yourself up too much. I've been at this a while and went totally bonkers over the last week or so. We just gotta keep on trying. emoticon
