Happy Superbowl Sunday! I hope you all are ready for the big game tonite. I only watch it for the commercials but I love all the pregame hype too....oh and Howie Long!!! Oh yeah I could gaze at that yummy eye candy for hours!!! (sigh) Told my hubby if Howie ever comes lookin for me, I will have no choice but to leave with him!!We laugh about it, but if Howie did knock on my door, after I woke up from passing out I think I would jump into his arms & run away with him!! And the great part is, Howies a big guy so I know I could jump into his arms & he could carry me. Cant promise he wouldnt get a hernia though but hey, Im a nurse, I would take care of him!!.....lol....being a stinker here! hee hee! I do puffy heart Howie!!! (ok, Im done, I promise!!) I love Matthew McConaughey too but I wont go there now. Perhaps that will be another post! lol.
So as promised, I said I was going to post some things that my weight watcher leader Pam shared with us yesterday. She is an amazing lady who I just love!! She cares so much about everyone and her main goal is our success. She is the epitome of a Leader!! Ok, but back to my topic. So Pam shared some things with us about staying on Track for Superbowl. She had some key points that I thought were noteworthy. Heres what I remember....
#1~ Know your plan book! How can you possible be successful if you dont know your game plan ! She said "Do you think that the guys who play in the Superbowl go in on Superbowl Sunday without memorizing their plan book?" No way!! You need to know your game plan inside & out so that you can execute what you need to do to be a winner! I really liked this thought. How can you be successful if you dont know what youre doing?
#2~ Engage in Positive Self talk~ She said "do you think that the football players go into the game thinking "man, theyre gonna cream us today". NO WAY!! They go in thinking "We are gonna cream them and win!" You too must have positive self talk. Dont focus on the negative, only the positive. And be sure to have your cheerleaders too! (thats all of us for each other!! :) ) Love this too!! How many times have we said not so nice things to ourselves? "You look fat" or "I hate the way I look" etc etc. Focus your energy on saying positive encouraging words to yourself daily. What you think about you bring about....so think positive and surround yourself with positive encouraging people who will love & support you" (the last part was my thoughts. Gotta throw my 2 cents in ya know!)
#3~ Dont get discouraged & throw in the towel. Ups & downs are going to happen and if youve had a bad week or a bad day, forgive yourself and move on because what happens when you give up?? You never reach your goal.
The rest of the things she talked about, geez, I forget what she wrote, but the whole meeting was really good and exactly what I needed to hear. So many times we try so hard and the scale doesnt reflect our efforts. It is in continuing to stay in the game that we will find our true victory!!
So my friends, keep your eyes on the prize and never give up!! OUR superbowl rings await us in the shape of smaller bodies, smaller clothing, better or restored health, improved self esteem & self worth but I think most of all to realize that the journey was worth every sacrifice made, every drop of sweat that was shed and every minute was time well spent on my road to a better me! WE ARE WORTH IT!!!!
Happy Sunday!! Have a great day!!
Love & Belief always
