Flexible to Frustrated to Fuming to Fixated With Fingers Crossed













Flexible: Yesterday morning when I was ready to head out on my run, discovered the battery on my phone was dead. The C25K Program I use is an app (imagine that) which tells me when to walk, run, stretch etc. Now I suppose I could have written the intervals down on my hand and used my watch, however that has not always been a very safe choice for me. Being a bit uncoordinated, I’ve found it works best

Getting Things Done, C25K









Day 2 of office organizing done and showing some real progress. I can walk in the door of my office without fear of tripping over boxes. I can see 95% of all the floor space and desk is 50% cleared off. Getting behind on everything else but project organize is going well. Committed last night to giving up Incredimail and going with Outlook : ( Not nearly as much fun, yet ever so much more efficient. Intending to finish all

Franklin Covey -The 5 Choices, Getting Things Done, The 1 Thing, Couch to 5K and Getting Organized












Spent most of the weekend in my Team Beachbody Franklin Covey training on The 5 Choices and it reminded me of why continual personal development is so critical to our success. When I discovered The 1 Thing concept, I made a number of changes in my life which have almost become habit. Studying the 5 Choices reminded me how reaching success involves more than just doing the 3 most important things first each day. There needs

Overcoming Doubt










This morning was the first day of Week 4 in my C25K Program. Definitely more running than walking now. And this morning for the 1st time I felt a tiny bit of hesitation in me. For a second even thought about putting it off for later today and then caught myself and got my running shoes on and headed out. The statement you never regret a work out you do, only those you don’t, is ringing in my ears right now.

9 Days and Counting, Mini-Meltdown









Today marked 9 days in a row working out which I’m pretty sure is a lifetime record for me. No matter how consistent I have been, the weekends have been left out for some reason. The 1st Team Beachbody Program I ever completed long ago was Kathy Smith, Project You, Type 2 and was 90 days long. Kevin and I both did the whole program from beginning to end and even that was only 6 days a week. I have completely embraced

A Measure of My Committment, Ideal Health and Definition of Determination









Interested versus committed. An interesting thought. When you’re interested in doing something, you’ll do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed however, this means you will do it no matter what. Finding myself bouncing a bit between committed and extremely interested. For example, I say I committed to my ideal health, yet I have this little issue with 1 of my eyes I have pretty much been ignoring for a couple of months. Not a big deal, but a person committed to

Walking for my Freedom. Shrink Yourself













This morning Kevin and I got up really late and to be honest I had decided it was too late to walk (don’t ask) and figured I had walked 1 day of the weekend already and blah, blah, blah. Thank goodness I had asked Kevin to walk with me today, yesterday. He walked into the office ready to go and well what could I do but go? So glad, he inspired me to get out there and go.

Mama Cass, What’t Up? It Never Rains in Southern California, Does It?














So glad I freeze framed how great I felt yesterday when I got home from my C25K. When I woke up this morning, I hesitated for just a moment and then started getting dressed. Imagine my surprise, when I opened the front door and it was raining. Not the typical occasional little drizzle I like to call rain. Real rain with big drops, making noise and all the ground was wet. I stood there for a few

Oozzing with Gratitude, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and John Lennon









Freeze framing how I feel right now. Taking a moment to really think about and experience every feeling including my toe hurting, the sweat running down my face, the amazing satisfaction of not letting myself down. At this same exact time yesterday I was feeling very disappointed in myself all the while working to rationalize those feelings away. Right now I feel great, really great. And making a note to self about how following up on my promises to myself feels
