One time it was with my trainer. She had me on the exercise equipment (don't know the name yet) where you stand and lean back, then you are on your forearms and you lift your legs up and kind of do stomach crunches. To me it looks like a torture device, anyway here I am trying to do it. My arms and stomach were hurting so bad! I did about 20 of them and told her I could not keep going. I told her, "I can't do it!"
Then the next day, I was at the pool during my water aerobics class. We were doing some sort of stretching in the pool and again I said, "I can't do it!"
After the last time, I realized I say that phrase a lot!
The reality in most cases, for me, is I really can do it. Maybe not completely or perfectly, but I can at least try!
I have decided that every time I say the word "Can't", I am going to donate $5 to the Oregon Food Bank. I already owe them at least $10.
I love to give money away, but not to the detriment of myself. I have motivation to not say that word because I don't want to short change myself. I really want to be an achiever, not someone who can't or won't or won't even try!! I want more for myself!
So I'm hoping that I don't have to donate more than $10 to the Oregon Food Bank for this reason. I will do it for healthier reasons!!! When I accomplish my goal, I will donate $5 for every pound lost! Now that's motivation!!!!
When I was at my dance class on Friday, they had a sign that said, "You are limitless". I have felt that way a lot in my life, but I choose the word can't and then I don't even try.
I am choosing to think that I am limitless ~ How about you?
