You Need To Have Patience

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a great start to your weekend!! I want to welcome you to my blog. My name is Jim and I am really happy you stopped by. I have always considered myself a positive person and try to find the good in everything. I sometimes read about people who are struggling with their goals and they give up, probably when they were about to reach them. We live in a time of things moving way too fast and our brains have to try harder to keep up. We want things done yesterday and don’t like when negative things come up in our way. When it comes to health and losing weight this is a big problem. People look for fast fixes and want to find an easy diet plan that has all of the things they like to eat on it. You want that fast drop of weight thinking that will motivate you to keep at it and very soon you will be at your goal weight. Not happening! When you gained the weight you did it very slow and that is the only way it will come off. You can accelerate the process with some intense workouts or running or the combination of both. You should eat good healthy food, not the food that got you where you are and drink that water thru the day to help your body function better. That’s it! No diet, just exercise and eating right. And the other thing is Patience! Stay the course and be patient and soon you will be where you want to be. Seems too easy! Yes it is, but you must put the time and hard work to make it happen. I am on the same plan. I have been eating more food that is from the ground and less processed food. I am losing weight at a slow pace and know what I must do to keep at it. You can do this too! Write down your plan, write what foods you should not eat and stay away from them. Enjoy all of the good food you can eat and you will see progress. Start Today!! You are worth the effort!! Just do it!!! Have a Wonderful and Healthy Day!!!


Do You Like The Weekend?

Hello and Happy Friday!   Well the weekend is here and for some that means doing  fun things and maybe a cookout and getting together with friends.  But to people who are trying to lose some weight it can be the most challenging days of the week. During the week you have structure and staying on track is easier. On the weekend you lose that structure and you might be making food for the family and friends and you go off course and eat some things that on Monday you will regret.  This is a common cycle and it sabotages many a fitness plan. What you need to do is plan out your weekends and how and what you eat and keep your exercise program just like during the week. This can be difficult but you can do it!  So from now on make plans for your weekend meals and stick to them and don’t let that weekend devil set you back. You can do this!  You are worth it!   You were born to succeed!     Have a Great and Healthy Weekend!!

Do You Enjoy Your Life?

Happy Sunday! I want to share a small post with you today about You. You were born to do great things in your life and do what you want to do. Most people just go thru the motions each day; they wake up to a clock and don’t eat properly before rushing out the door, then they set in some traffic to get to a job they really don’t like. They barely make it the eight or nine hours then go home and eat and then watch TV and then repeat. Their weekends are time for having a little fun, drinking a few drinks and maybe grilling out and then more TV. Then it is Monday! Does this seem about right? This is not what you were born to do! It starts with getting up. What you do every day is what makes the difference from living the life I just described or living a life of your dreams. If your job is something that you don’t like doing then it is time for a change. You might then say” I can’t do anything else that will give me that kind of money”. You are wrong, you can get another job or start a small business and make even more. It will change when you change. You have to do things differently to make your life better. Maybe it’s time for going to school again and learning a new trade or maybe you have had an idea but you never acted on it and now you should.” Well, I don’t have enough time”. You would if you didn’t watch TV every night. You would if you got up a little earlier and went to bed at an earlier time. These are things you can do now to change your life from boring to fulfilling. You can do this! This is what successful people do. They are avid readers who sometimes read two or three books a week. They go to seminars and take the latest classes to stay on top of their game. They don’t watch much TV and they spend more quality time with their family. They take nice vacations to wonderful places and really enjoy the fruits of their labor. They are just like you! They have what they have because they made better choices, and most did not just inherit it. Try to not watch so much TV for a week or so and you will find you don’t really have to do it. I stopped watching so much TV and the shows I thought I could not live without are now just a memory. I get up each day at the same time and go to bed at the same time and I for sure get more done. Start thinking about the life you would love to live and write down actions steps you can take now to make your life better. It will not happen overnight but you can change your life for the better starting today. Go ahead and start working on the Life of your Dreams! Have a Wonderful and Healthy Day!!

Who do you want to be?

Happy Monday to you! I hope some of you are enjoying this beautiful weather we are having on the east coast. I had written last time about getting yourself set up with plans for different areas in your life. But maybe I should have started like this. What do you want to do with your life? What do want to have in your life? Who would you want to become? Where would you like to live and what kind of job would you like to have? These are such important questions that will decide where you will go in life. Some people work at a job that they don’t like but they think that is all they can do. It would be better to think about what kind of job you would love to do? It would be so much nicer to work at a job that when you get up in the morning that you just can’t wait to get to work. Wouldn’t that be great? You would have less stress and all areas of your life would be better. Would you like to live by the ocean or in a big city? If you lived where you wanted you would for sure be happier. Do you want a big house or just a condo? It is up to you to decide these things and then plan on how to make it a reality. You might say I can’t do any of that and I am just going to go to my job I hate and live in a place I don’t like. That does not sound like pleasant thought does it? Things can’t happen overnight and it could take a few years to make it reality but if you set your mind to it and do something every day to start the process before long you will see a light at the end of the tunnel. Start right now by getting a journal and start to write what it is that you want in your life and think of steps you could take now to make it happen. Then you have to make a deadline with the goal in your sights. You must see the new you in the place you want to be, looking like you would like to look. You have to have a vision. Then maybe you could take a night class for a different career or even a small business. Look at a magazine for the type of house you would want to live in and cut it out and post it on a wall where you will see it every day. Take the steps for a better you and a better life. Next time we will put some steps into action to get you going. Go and buy a journal or notebook and start tracking what you are doing and what maybe you should be doing. See you next time!
