Quick Update & NEW Fitness & Nutrition Log!!

I have been having a great week. I am so pleased. My workouts have been great and my eating MUCH cleaner. I hope to be back in the gym next week. It gives me more variety. My schedule has just been whacked this week. 12 hour work days are getting tiring. I love having 3 days off instead of two, but it seems like one day is half wasted because I sleep so much. By November I'll be in a new store. MUCH better boss... MUCH longer drive, but it will be worth it to reduce the stress. The drive time will give me a chance to listen to books or motivational speakers, etc. It will be some good self-improvement time.

Its about 7 weeks from KY Muscle. OMG. I'm so excited. I have to make some huge improvements. I don't want to be the fat girl I was last year. I am hoping to say hi to Julie again and I'll be taking pictures of our Diva Girls! Can't wait! I need to book a room soon....

Oh!! I have to do a quick plug for this: Fitbody Training & Nutrition Log . Its awesome. I just ordered mine today. I don't have a trainer right now and this is a perfect way to log everything in ONE place! :D

There are more pages, but I just wanted to share a couple quick pictures from Julie's FB. Awesome!!! I can't wait til mine arrives!!!

"Realize that there is no such thing as failure. Keep this in mind and you will achieve
all that you conceive in your mind. You never fail, you simply produce results.”
- Dr. Wayne Dyer

I love this. Its so much better than getting into a negative mindset. I am really working hard on mindset right now. I promise I'll do a real blog soon. I'm really pleased with where I am. I have much to accomplish, but everything is in the NOW. Positive thoughts playing in my subconscious are so much healthier than the negative. Whatever action I choose, produces a result. It may be in line with what I desire or believe, it may not. Its up to me to take the action that makes sense. ;)

Its been awhile. :)
Haven't been posting anywhere really, just facebook updates and that's about it. A lot going on in my world... anyway... Sundie posted this on the Diva Board and I thought it was SO good.

Every person has a dream, which he or she wishes to fulfill at some point of time in his or her life. It could be about anything – to build a booming business, become a successful model, go on a world tour, serving the less privileged ones or simply getting married to someone you love.

However, dreams don’t come true unless you are motivated enough to work towards your goals and strive persistently until they are accomplished. As the road to success gets tougher, most people lose heart and soon give up on their dreams.

The initial enthusiasm and determination withers away and it becomes extremely challenging to re-motivate yourself again to pursue your dreams with renewed vigor.

If you are one of those who follow their dreams for a while and suddenly lose interest if it takes a bit too long to attain them, then you can use the following tips to stay motivated:

* You need to develop a positive frame of mind and create a vivid vision about the dream. This vision must also portray you as an achiever who has finally got what he always wanted. You must also weigh your strengths and weaknesses carefully so that you can build an effective strategy to achieve your goals. You must also decide how badly you want to attain your goals because without commitment none of the strategies will work.

* Next step is to identify all those things that inspire you and the ones that de-motivate. You may find success stories of other people highly motivating or may have a role model who inspires you.

* Ask yourself if you have the passion, which is a vital ingredient of success. In the absence of passion, it will be difficult to achieve even smaller goals. Career consultants regard passion as the biggest motivator and if believe that if you have passion, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

* You need to find out the reason “why”. Why do you have the dream in the first place? You want to find out the motivation that keeps your dreams alive. When the journey gets tiring, it’ll keep you going on. This process also allows you to have a greater self-awareness of yourself. What do you really want in life? And why do you want it.

* Now that you have found a way to stay motivated, you need to have a back-up plan just in case things don’t go your way. It happens to everybody at some point of time – you believe that by doing ‘A’, you will get ‘B’, however by the end of the day you realize that the outcome was just not what you had expected. This can he highly de-motivating, however, having a good strategy for a ‘rough day’ can boost your confidence in trying times. You may also seek peace of mind and tranquility through yoga or meditation. It will not only have a soothing effect on your mind, but also give you an entirely different perspective to look at problems and failures.

* Another important aspect you must take into account is the environment you are in. Environment includes the surroundings as well as the people around you. It should be positive and energizing or else it will have a negative psychological effect on you. Choose to be with people who support you and motivate you to move on.

So, declutter your mind to eliminate emotional drains and free up energy. It will lift your spirits and also help you to set your priorities right. Don’t lose sight of your goals, reminisce your visions and invent your own path to success! "
