Strength.

a person who fallsSince we will all fall “eventually”

we might as well plan on learning.

A fall, mistake or lesson is only bad

if we learn nothing from it.

We must remember that either we earn

or we learn. YES it is a win, win so don’t

let fear of failure keep you from trying.

We are on this together so if I can be

of any assistance reach out, write me at

Making Progres.

1016666_770016309749330_3025759844956139055_nEvery step counts. Every decision matters.

Gang., we make or break goals with our actions

or the lack of. We know what we want and

we know why we want it. Then why the heck

is it so hard at times? Why are we so weak

that innocent chocolate and delicious pizza

can whip us into submission.

I don’t really know and I tell you I have given

it a lot of thought.

What I do know is that I will try again and

again until I win. Sooooo  the question is:

Will you try with me? Will you rinse and repeat

when needed and try again with me?

I hope so. I will be here.

Thanks for liking and sharing on your

favorite social media page.

TOMORROW.

TOMORROW.

Why wait for tomorrow?
For those of us who are on the road to a better US there is no place for tomorrow., not at the price of a better life.
We do not make excuses for others or for ourselves and that makes us at times the target of jokes, slander, abuse, good and bad intentions and it is our job to maintain the higher ground.

Zero tolerance!! For ourselves when we hesitate between the scheduled and the accidental. When we fail to do what is important and instead we allow the urgent to rule.
To fail to follow our diet just because “it is just a little piece”
For not taking our vitamins and medicine as prescribed instead of “at times”

Tomorrow is the biggest thief. The biggest reason why goals, diets, dreams, wishes and desires do not happen as they should.

As a Hispanic I am very familiar with the term “Manana” Manana does not mean tomorrow., it means “Not Now”

So I ask you If not today, if not now,Then When?

How about right now? How does right now sounds to you?

All of the best for you.

Share the love gang. Whichever your favorite social media is.

There Is Hope For Us All.

every saintThis gives me hope.

This makes me think that you and I regardless of

how flawed or great we think we are…. Well we have

a chance. There are possibilities in that even if we have

been taken for granted or people not only did not keep

their promises but failed us there is a future.

Today we end a season. This can mean a lot or

it can mean nothing. It is up to us.

What are we waking up with tomorrow?

Ideas and thoughts of power and progress OR

feelings of lost and less.

I hope and pray that we will all tomorrow JUMP

out of bed and run to meet the day and

the new opportunities.

Gang we know how to be and do good….

How about we push for great.

What if we work on excellent.

We deserve it and we know how to do it.

I am here. I have been here. I will be here.

I know what it is like when people promise and

offer to “Be There” only to be missing in action

when we actually need them.

That will not be me.

I will be here tomorrow like every day at 06:30

It is not 05:30 and it is not 05:40

It is 06:30 every day regularly from Monday to

Saturday and every now and then I will throw

a Sunday but personally Sundays are for

God, Family and friends. NO, Not necessarily

for church as I have found that God wants me

in other places at times.

Let’s end this year with a bang and start

the new year even stronger.

Gang I wish for all the best for each and every one of you.

Which Is The Meassure Of Your Success?

measuring-tape

So? What is it for YOU?

Who cares what others say or think? Who cares what is important to others. What is important to YOU?

Is it a clothes size? A waist measure? The blinking numbers on your scale?

I do not know since I do not know you personally but keeping track of what is important to us is always a great Idea.

Folks are you familiar with the book “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy? If you are you know how important tracking is,

and if you are not I hope you will take a small piece of advice from me and get you this book. You can get it on audio form or e-book or print form.

Regardless of how you choose to get it you will get information that will help you accomplish any goal you are working on.

A most valuable resource.

Tracking what we eat, our progress, our needed steps, etc., will keep the goal ever-present.

Define what matters to you. Define what it is that you have to do and go for it.

OK. As promised a little bit on food. For those of us that have undergone Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) or those

that are thinking of getting it done here is some insight.

Due to the reduced space for food to go trough on the way to the stomach., the consistency of food must always be taken into consideration

when prepping and when cooking. A small dice will work for most once we get past the initial stage after the surgery.

Make sure you invest in a good quality knife and that it is maintained sharp and always at the ready.

Chewing is the other part of the equation. Make sure that you spend enough time chewing on your food as to avoid getting stuck.

On this I have to add my personal challenge here. IF I allow myself to get too hungry I eat way too fast, and always end up

getting stuck and before long I am throwing up. A most unpleasant experience for those of us that had WLS.

All of the best to you and as always I wish you all the success in the world.

Don’t You Quit!!

crawlingBecause quitting is not acceptable

we plan our work and work our plan.

We look into the future through our dreams

and hopes and we know what the value

of our weight loss is.

We want to live a longer, healthier

life and we want it to mean and stand

for something.

Gang. Let us not forget our dreams

and hopes., let us continue pushing and

working as all of our hard work and

diligence will show up in a better quality

of life that we get to share with our

loved ones.  (whether they want it or not 🙂 )

Don’t quit, Don’t ever quit.

Gift To Yourself.

 

Make your life what you want by making

the right choices.

From what we eat to where we work.

Who we socialize with to where we vacation.

All of our choices have an impact in our life.

Let’s choose better. Let’s make it count.

Let’s give ourselves the gift of more, better, healthier,

richer, stronger, BETTER.

All the best to you and yours.
