Motivation In A Minute

I was sent this motivational email by my Favourite Bad Habit and I just had to share it.

“Procrastination is attitude’s natural assassin. There is nothing so fatiguing as an uncompleted task.”

William James, one of the founders of modern psychology, spoke those words. And how true they are!

A few years ago, I heard a tip about procrastination that I never forgot. For me, it truly was an “a-ha moment!”

Well, here it is…with a warning: Once you see this 2 minute movie, it’ll be hard to forget!

20 Reasons to lose

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be creating a workout plan for myself and post it here. I’ll also be dropping  afew tips and tricks that I find online and in mags. Anyways, back to the meat of the matter

Even if you have the strongest resolve sometimes we falter and at times we lose sight of our goals and why we’re out to get them in the first place. Whenever you next consider that 12th cookie or think about skipping the gym (the third time this week) read these motivators, I will be posting one a day for the next 20 days. They should give you just the motivation you need to keep going.

Here is reason number 20

In our society, people respect weight loss. Even if you do nothing cool or interesting or memorable for the rest of your life, you’ll have done that.

Has truer words ever been spoken? You know you respect someone who loses weight and that beautiful young lady across the way does too…so keep GOING!

Better Body BluePrint: 1

So this year I actually began the year so confident about my body I didn’t even need to renew my commitment to getting fit as I am feeling pretty good about where I am. However I have decided that since I’ve gotten bored with my workouts and the progress I should change things up a bit. My skateboard broke so I am left without any seriously fun way to maintain my fitness and weight, and as such I slacked off a bit.

Anyways it’s said that if you want to get something done bad enough you one of the things you should consider is getting support, so here I am about to use you as my support group. If I tell someone else about my plans I’m twice as likely to complete them right? So it stands to reason that if I tell the world, then i’m infinitely more likely to achieve. At least I hope thats how it goes. To further assist I’ve also signed up for a profile on Body Proud which is yet another motivational tool I’ll use. (more…)

Another New Year

So as I sat down to type about my disdain for people who make new year’s resolutions every year only to break them i remembered that I had written one on the same topic in January so I’ll just post the link here as well as the post of another good friend who shares my sentiments (yes ‘micks I not leaving you out at all).

Anyways, they usually start beating themselves up because they did nothing for 300 plus days and now they suddenly wake up and go “Oh my God, I can’t do this next year”. Then create a random list of things which they want to do next year, and they attack this list with a religious fervour!….that is, until January 15th when they forget all about it.

The links as promised are “New Year; Same Old Crap”, that  i wrote and “New Year’s Resolutions” by ‘micks. (more…)

A New Year; same old crap

OK…first things first….it really grinds my gears when i hear the crap that people say when the new year rolls around. There is always that person who claims “new year, new me”, only to start doing the same old thing a week into the new year, i guess change is not for the cliche’d idiot. C’est la vie eh.

Then there is that person who takes this oppurtunity to bash on those who have decided to enjoy their lives. I mean sure what some people do may raise red flags in our minds but hey who are we to judge? I certainly dont have that kinda time on my hands to sit and judge everyone and their choices. Shoot, I certainly make a LOT of mistakes so who would I be to judge anyone? To these people I usually say, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. 

As for me, I live my life how i want to live it. Not by anyone else’s rules, just my own. I live once…do i really need to waste life thinking and talking bout how you live yours? I think not!
