Ooo I like that paperclip chain idea! I'll get a box of really pretty color ones!

Norah -- If it's in a can, a bag, or a box, it's probably not good for you so put it down.

Write down a list of all the reasons why you want to achieve your goals. Setting a good example for your kids, lowering your blood sugar, whatever. Keep it with you all the time, and read it at least once a day. There will be times when you are tempted not to make the healthy choice. When that happens you need to be able to whip out that card and say to yourself 'I have big goals, they're worth it and this is why.'

I just read your Chain Gang post. I love the idea!

I've lost 10lbs (since october) and am at my size 14 weight, but not in my size 14 pants yet. (I'm a bit confused).

But if I could look at that string of paper clips every day and add to it every week. . .

WOW what a visual. (lot easier than pulling pounds of fat in a wagon, eh?)

Thanks!

what have you done today to make yourself proud?

"MIX IT UP"

We have talked here on Your QuickFire Challenge about how we are "Visual Creatures" and how pictures can motivate. We are also auditory and know how music can motivate us to move, long past the point we would like to quit! It is So important to find those tools that motivate and add them to your Business. The most important Business you have- Your Health.

We would like to Challenge you further here on Your QuickFire Challenge to create your own Fitness Playlist(s). There are several on-line sites you can do this, or even make your own at home, any way you chose. If you like, you can share them here in order to "Spark" someone else with a tune they may have not thought of - or may have forgotten. You can share a link to a site - or simply list those songs that are in your repertoire.

Go ahead and "Play it Forward"!

We have set up a separate link to our Message Board in which you are welcome to share your list!

Hi -
My favorite thing is to check my note from the Universe each morning. To sign up free go to www.TUT.com. They also have ecards you can send to friends.

This was given to me as a birthday present .I want to share with all of you as my present to all of you.
Thought it could be of interest to some.


The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith
The version below was found written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta:

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere any.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

-this version is credited to Mother Teresa

CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART, YOU'RE AWESOME, HEART AND SOUL!!!


I will add in the final analysis it is between you and yourself only.It has nothing to do with anybody else as another dear friend remind me.This has been a year of wonderful intangible gifts and blessed friends. The only real way to pay them is paying forward.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." ~ Lao Tzu quotes (Chinese taoist Philosopher, founder of Taoism, wrote "Tao Te Ching" (also "The Book of the Way"). 600 BC-531 BC


Start a Virtual Walking Tour and Post to Your SparkBlog!

**We will use the formula: mile = 2,000/steps.

**You will need to keep up with the miles walked daily. Use a pedometer.

**Easier to copy your steps to a calendar (use your Spark Calendars!) daily so you do not forget to track.

"YOUR QUICKFIRE CHAIN-GANG"


We are "visual" creatures and it helps if you have something solid to "see" your weight-loss. Sometimes it takes too long to see the Changes, that WILL come, as we drop the pounds.

You do this by taking Paper Clips and make a Chain that Represents the Pounds you have Lost. You Add to the Chain for every Pound Lost; take away a clip for pounds gained. You can also reverse this and Start with the Amount You Want to Commit to the Challenge, and remove them as you lose! Watch your Chain Grow Bigger or Smaller and We WILL Get This Battle Won!

Keep them Visual! Hang them on your mirror, around the handle of the Refrigerator, or Anywhere and EveryWhere you will SEE Them Daily!

"I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy." ~Og Mandino

"The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves."

"If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now."

"Others aren't staring at you. They're thinking how they should be running, too."

"Someone who is busier than you is running right now."

"The road to hell is paved with couches."

"It's easier to sleep than run. That's why sleeping isn't an olympic sport."

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."

(Nike Ad's)

"It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses." -- Dr. Oz & Dr. Roizen- "You on A Diet"
