I Think I Can, I Think I Can

Another Monday, another new week to try to be healthy.  It is constantly amazing to me how lazy I can become after one short weekend of fun.  So in order to inspire myself (and encourage you also! 🙂 ) , I have found some great quotes to motivate us both!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  – Phillippians 4:13

“I think I can, I think I can…” – The Little Engine Who Could

motivation2

“You’ll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind.”  – Irish proverb

May God fill you with amazing energy and motivation today to do whatever it is you need to do!  Slainte, Lisa

The Beauty of Slow and Steady

tortoise

I love the tortoise in the “Tortoise and the Hare.”  He never gives up…he believes in his little turtle heart that if he doesn’t stop and just proceeds at his slow and steady pace, he has a chance at beating that egotistical rabbit.  You all know the story….rabbit snoozes, overconfident; and that persistent turtle claims the gold medal.  🙂

I have recently begun working out after a long period of not doing so.  Muscles that have lain dormant for probably all of my adult life are now screaming to life, causing me to have to rest a day between workouts in order to go back and do it again.  But I know I need to be a tortoise, to be slow and steady and persistent.  My body will adjust eventually, right?  haha  I realized last night that just a little bit each time is key; trying not to overdo it and paying later is crucial.  And now I’m going to say it, the wonderful phrase you’ve all been waiting for….”Slow and steady wins the race.”  Pray for me that I will be a good little turtle.  😉  Slainte, Lisa
