WORKOUT – gym time: Upright bike 60 mins/Elliptical 30 mins
Reading Tina’s Health post about fitness inspirations and “health heroes” got me all fired up Tony Robbins-style.
Most of the time all that goes on here on SR is me making fun of myself (the possibilities are endless!), but I want to get serious on you for a second:
If I could give one piece of (unqualified) advice, it’d be to GOAL BIG. Make big time, audacious, bold goals. Too many times we as women make fail-safe goals… I’ll have an “A” goal but then a lesser goal in case I don’t make my first one and then not really a goal but I’ll call it that because I can’t dream that big…. No, Goal big. Put it out there. Believe in yourself.
This is part of an email I wrote:
“I don’t want to get all Jessica Alba and every other celebrity on you: "I was such an ugly duckling in school! Nobody liked me, I was a loser!"
But I had a high school teacher who once ran a marathon and I thought it was akin to Mother Theresa – so amazing. But I wouldn’t even let myself DREAM of ever running one. It wasn’t even in my scope of dreams, let alone reality.
And here I am 10 years later (gawh, I’m old) , running marathons monthly (or twice monthly) and running faster than I could ever run from the cops!
I hope through all the jokes and making fun of myself that you, my readers, see that that sense of accomplishment and self confidence comes in part from dreaming big and going after it…. and reading a lot of PEOPLE magazine.”
Sometimes I’m guilty of negating my accomplishments or not believing in myself enough, but remember, the personal fan club starts with you – the president.
Run on, friends.
