Now!

Now is the best time to do it! Sometimes we assume that we can’t pursue our dreams if we don’t have all our ducks in a row. I would like to submit to you that we will achieve our dreams and goals sooner if we start right where we are.What was that look like? Example: If my dream is to buy an apartment complex and yet I do not have the resources (money or credit) to buy one then I can at least start looking at apartment complexes. I sign up for commercial newsletters for companies that sell apartment complexes. I can reach out to property management companies to find get information on managing properties. I can look at the resources and figure out how to position myself to buy one. I can put plans on paper in order to visualize what my goals are. I can audit my talents, skills and abilities to figure out what I can do to make more money. I can run the numbers to create a budget for buying an apartment complex. I can read real estate books, go to auctions and join organizations that are helpful to property owners. The idea is to start moving towards your dreams and goals regardless of where you are right now.Read and consume content that will encourage you to be productive. Start today. Sit down and write out what you want your life to look like. Make you the priority in your life. I have found that it is much easier to achieve my goals when I take care of myself. I am a better business woman, wife and mother when I take take care of myself and focus on my goals.What does focusing on my goals in real life looks like? I now walk 30 minutes a days even if it is at some weird hour of the day. I come home and make phone calls to my clients. I tell my kids “mommy needs 20 minutes of uninterrupted time” and they will (generally) respect that request:). I go to sleep listening to The Science of Getting Rich. I write out my goals every morning and every night.The world needs you. If you have a goal or dream and you achieve it that inspires other people to pursue their goals and dreams. It is becoming increasingly easier to plan out our lives in such a way that we can achieve our hearts desires because there are so many great tools and information out there. But those tools and information don’t mean anything if we don’t use it.My prayer is that you will read this short post in stock right now to start working on your dreams and goals.

My Belly is going down…

Still teetering between 206 and 207….progress feels good. I am moving more and of course being mindful of what I eat. Today I am going to go scuba training today. So much fun. Helpful hint: find fun activities that interest you that also happen to involve physical activity:)

Hmmm! Not feeling it!!!

Today started off so awesome and ended not so  awesome.  I did not use it as an excuse to over eat or to indulge in unhealthy foods. I am now at home and I stayed positive until the very last minute of my work day…however now that I am home I kinda want to whine and complain about how this or that did not go right but I know from experience that does not do anything to help the situation. So I am releasing this day and looking forward to tomorrow.  To those I let down today I will apologize and to those that let me down I forgive you.  Life is amazing even when it doesn’t feel so amazing. It really is all good and I must remember that.  I feel better already:)

Don’t Wait….Start NOW!!

There is this fascination with starting things off in the new year which I do understand however I am choosing not to participate. I am choosing to start or should I say continue with this years resolution.  I am continuing with my goal of working out, loosing weight and making more money(providing more and better service to the market place).  I believe that by tweeking my goals and staying on my original plan (this years resolution) that I will get further ahead.  I have fallen off the wagon of my goals several times this year but I tried not to beat myself up mentally and emotionally.  By doing this I can honestly say that I have been more active this year than I have ever been in the last 15 years.  I have had more fun, participated in unique activities, kept my kids active and have over come obstacles better because of my decision to stick with the plan even if I fall off for a while. Let’s continue with our original resolution and on January 1 continue to build on what we have accomplished this year even if we feel that we did not accomplish as much as we should have.  We can still hit the gym, eat clean and provide more and better service in the market place on a daily basis.  My goal is to keep my goals, build on my progress this year and make new goals once my current goals are accomplished. Happy Early New Year!!!! Rock on:)

Wow! Fall is here and I am so excited for the challenge

I am actually looking forward to the challenges of the fall season for me and my weight loss journey! The reason it is a challenge is because in the next 2 months there are 3 family birthdays in October, 1 birthday in November followed by Thanksgiving. For most people this may not be a challenge however for me it is because I love food and we always celebrate with food.  I know I will make good choices and I have already made up in my mind that I will enjoy the holidays with my friends and family but I will only choose healthy proteins and veggies and I will only eat half of my desert. I am mentally preparing right now so that I will not fall off of my new healthy lifestyle program.  I must mentally prepare now because in the past I was the type of person that would fall off of my diet and I would use that as an excuse to keep messing up for the following days, weeks and months. But those days are over. I am making good choices because I like the way I feel when I eat clean and healthy foods. I do not want to stuff myself because I like having energy and when I stuff myself my energy goes south. I will rise to the occasion and continue on my journey to healthier, happier, leaner and sexier me!! Rock on!!

Yes. It is a great day!

Today is turning into a great day, not because anything great is happening but because this has started off as a horrible day however I am choosing to make it a great day.  We have a choice!!  I mean if you were to sit me down right now at 1:30 Saturday afternoon and ask me what was so great today I would have to say nothing but you know what I will never say that because regardless of the craziness….there is always more good than bad in this world…that is a fact.  So what is good on a day like today. My good is that I have the ability to type (right now), beautiful family, I am breathing, great friends, I can walk and talk, compassion for others, a positive attitude and the ability to think, plan and demand that any challenges that I am facing right now will be absolutely miniscule next week, next month or next year. I actually feel better right now because I choose to feel better:) Life is good!! Rock on!!
