Welcome to a new day in Carol's Corner. Pull up a chair and stay awhile. As I am not posting as much since I've been laid up, I would like to suggest something to my readers and especially any newer readers that have visited here. On days that I don't have a new issue of Carol's Corner, I invite you to go to the archive section in the top right of the page and then go all the way back to the beginning and start reading some of my previous issues a few every day. There's lots of beneficial material to be had. So now, back to the present. Today's picture was taken at the mall in Ithaca when I went to see a movie. Thought the stone background made a great backdrop for this fun ensemble. Diane Panda Sabbath was the winner naming this,” Earth Meets Sky.” Thought that was a perfect description of my fun top.
The three piece jewelry set I chose was one I made and it picks up some color's in the blouse. My ring is a 24 carat ring my husband got me in Turkey on one of his layovers overseas. Can't remember which trip but he was either coming or going from either, Kuwait, Afghanistan or Iraq.
And then I chose this goldtone watch from my watch collection. This is one my mom gave me.
So let's get this discussion going? Do you need a fresh start in the journey you're on? Are you looking for a better, happier, healthier future? I know I need one and I intend to get it started as soon as I am recovered from this foot injury.
So how do you get started? Well first you have to admit you want and need it. You need to make that decision both in your head and your heart. They go hand in hand. I've always said this journey has to start in your head first. But miracles happen when it moves to your heart. Next I think you have to believe in yourself. You can't go into this or anything else in life if you don't believe you can. If you go into this process with a negative attitude you are doomed to fail. You have to start with the attitude that ' I can and I will succeed'. So you've made the decision to make a fresh start wherever you are in your journey, be it weight loss or your fitness or anything else for that matter. The principals we apply to our health and fitness journey can be applied to almost every aspect of our life. I say the next step is to make a plan. Decide what you need to do and come up with a plan that will help you accomplish it. To accomplish any goal you might have, you need to have a plan to get you there. I have made my plan already. The only reason I'm not starting it immediately is because I need to get rid of this boot and I want to be cleared to work out. My plan is pretty simple. As soon as I am cleared (for take off) LOL, I decided I am going to attend Weight Watcher meetings. I have a lifetime membership. I might have to pay a few weeks but that's ok. I know I could do it on my own as I did already, but I think it would be good for me to be around other people and as I am a very competitive person you can bet I will be doing my best. Also I might be able to help some other people that need more help than me, through my Facebook group and this blog. As always I want to continue to inspire and motivate people to be the best they can be. I also am chomping at the bit to be able to do my workouts again. And I know I need to for various health reasons. I am pretty sure my next blood work is going to suck, excuse my language there. So decide what you think will be the best course of action for your individual needs. What works for someone else might not work for you. You need to be the judge of what you think will help put you on the road to success. Once you have decided your course of action you need to get all the tools in line to implement your plan. Then you have to fully commit to it. And lastly get the support system you may need along the way. Enlist friends, family and one of the best support systems around; our many great Facebook groups of people,trying to accomplish some of the same things we all are trying to accomplish. They are valuable sources of inspiration, education, motivation and above all support.Everyone of them know from whence we come. Your future awaits you. Are you ready? I will be soon! I'm ready as soon as this foot is!!! I have my plan and I know I can succeed. You can too. Till next time. God bless.
