Not Me Monday…A year from now…

Good Morning Everyone,

I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this blog that I’ll share with you today, but I have come to really like the writer.  She is working on a major weight loss goal for herself and trying to find answers to the plaguing questions of her life and her weight issues.  She is very genuine and her struggles are real and her triumphs should be celebrated.

I don’t really want my Not Me Monday to be about just blog sharing to promote other bloggers.  Not Me Monday is geared at featuring a different voice to share with you.  Today’s blogger talks about setting a goal and sometimes in the beginning, it is really hard to stick with it.  But if you do stick with it, within time you’ll see results and this will help continue to motivate you.

If you’re struggling to stay motivated on a challenge or a goal you’ve set for yourself, take a look at this post today – I think it will give you a little boost to “just keep swimming.”

Here you go – here’s the link:

Happy Monday!  Happy Week!


PS – it is funny that she quotes Eleanor Roosevelt in her blog.  If you’d like a daily inspirational quote, subscribe to A Minute…A Thought.  This month we’re featuring Eleanor Roosevelt.

Tips on Tuesdays – Remembering why you are….

Do you ever get caught in what I call “Treading-along mode?”  Basically, you are just treading through jobs and events and actions to get to the next job, event or action and you don’t really know why or what you are doing it all for.

  • You show up to meetings to get through what is presented, accept the new tasks you’ve been given, and head back to your desk to get started.
  • Or you wake up in the morning to get the kids out of bed, dressed, lunches made, off to school, and then wait for them to come home so you can do it all again but in reverse?

Do you ever need a little reminder of what motivates you?

I just proposed something to the little non-profit I work for – something new to start this year.

Start each meeting with a feel good story of why we are doing what we are doing.

But I got to thinking, this idea of reminding ourselves why we are doing something can be used for any situation to help redirect our focus and motivation.

  • Why are you getting up at 515 in the morning to exercise?
  • Why are you making your child’s lunch instead of letting her buy lunch at school?
  • Why did you go into business for yourself?
  • Why are you calling this client?
  • Why do you visit your parents?

What are your motivations?  Why are you doing what you are doing?

Happy Tuesday!
