Self-Discipline

"Bad habits are easy to form but hard to live with.... Good habits are hard to form but easy to live with." ~Brian Tracy~
Self-discipline is something I'm starting to work very hard at.... it's NOT easy!!! I have to keep telling myself this, so I thought I'd also share with you all too. smile emoticon IT'S HARD TO FORM NEW, "GOOD" HABITS!!! BUT once you master them they get easier to do without even thinking about it.
Just remember... Everything gets harder before it gets easy!! Keeping going!! It WILL be worth it!!!

What Motivates YOU??

People ask me that all the time and really it's pretty simple:
1. The fact that I'm not where I want to be yet
2. The fear that if I quit, I'll go back to my old/bad habits and lose everything I've been working for
3. I LOVE seeing other people succeed! And I want to show others that they can do exactly what I'm doing to get to where they want to be!

That's really it! I think about each of those thing EVERYDAY and it makes me want to push harder.  So, I'm really asking, WHAT MOTIVATES YOU??

Invest in YOURSELF!

"Sometimes you have to look back on how far you've come to appreciate where you are now."

Lately, I've been in this 'funk' because I've been obsessing over how for I have to go before I reach my ultimate goal... Sometimes I forget how far I've actually come in 18 months. Sometimes I feel like I could have worked hard and I would be farther along than I am now. BUT then I stop at look back at what/how I used to be.
When I took the pic on the left I was:
~MISERABLE
~ I hated shopping...
~ I hated looking in the mirror
~ I hated going places where people would 'see' me
~ I cried all the time
~ I felt so insecure and self-conscious
~ I ate EVERYTHING without even thinking about it
~ Tired & Grouchy ALL the time
I KNEW I NEEDED TO CHANGE!!

When I took this pic this morning I thought about how much better I feel about myself, even if I know I've got A LOT of work to do.
~ I feel amazing
~ I feel healthy & strong
~ I'm slowly gaining confidence by the day
~ When I cry now it's mostly because I'm happy
~ I'm very conscious about what I eat... even if it is not so healthy, I at least know how it's affecting me. Plus I know I'm getting tons of nutrition each day I drink my ShakeO
~ Let's be honest I'm still tired and grouchy sometimes, just not as bad or often. ;)

Seriously, if I can come this far I know I can/WILL get to where I want to be AND SO CAN YOU!!! IF YOU are ready to make a change YOU CAN DO IT!!! You've just got to start believing in yourself! I want you to know that I AM HERE TO HELP!! I WANT YOU to get reach your goals too!!
