as today is busy…

21 February, 2010

I’m linking to Coach Jen’s QOTD

Turn off the TV.

Turn off the music.


Run naked. No gadgets.

Silence the noise and negative energy.

Turn off the clutter in the mind.

Turn off the incessant chatter and useless clamor in your head.

FEEL more.

LOVE yourself.

Make yourself your #1 priority. Moms, this means you.

Stop making excuses.

Stop looking for someone to save you. Save yourself.

Stop whining.

Be the change you want to see.

TRUST your instincts.

Be humble but confident.

Nothing is so loathed as self-deprecation.

If you teach your daughters one lesson in life, teach her this: SELF-CONFIDENCE. Without it, you will never reach your true potential. With it, you can rule the world.

Ask for help when you need it.

Don’t be a martyr.

Realize you cannot do it alone.

Get out of your rut.

Stop counting calories.

Always sleep more.

Stop searching for the next great thing. There is no such thing.

Stop pretending that age will not catch up with you. Instead, face it head on and embrace it.

Stop comparing yourself to others. “IF only…” doesn’t get you too far in life.

Celebrate the small successes because without them we are always in search of the next big thing.

NO regrets.

Follow rules when you should and break rules when you know you need to.

Love the body you were given.

Always remember who helped you get to where you are – and always thank them.

Have a mentor. Have a role model. Maybe a couple. Beyond that and the clear lines start to bleed.

Remember, everyone bleeds red.

When the workout says HARD – go hard. Don’t ask what hard is. IF you don’t know what hard is…then you clearly need to learn what HARD MEANS. It is not a Heart Rate zone, it is not a % of effort. It is hard. KNOW thyself.

Smash the glass ceilings that you have imposed on yourself!

You have to protect the privacy of the advice you get, or you’ll never get the advice you want or need.

Stop thinking and just do.

Tomorrow is a new day, just move on to it.

When you struggle with IF you should workout ask yourself, “What is my competition doing today?”

Become more resilient.

Develop a thick skin and a tough mind.

Always hire the best money can buy. You will never regret it.

Pay it forward. That is living!

Learn how to say NO. It is the most freeing word in our language.

The body does not lie. The mind does.

The best don’t second guess, they just do.

Don’t be vain. They are not talking about you.

The rest ponder, over think and overanalyze too much.

Never underestimate the power of positive visualization. Ask the winners- they won the race before they showed up.

Spend more time improving yourself that you don’t have any time left to criticize others.

Nobody cares about how much you know – until they know how much you care.

Remember it is not the problems you have in life that define you, it is how you handle those problems that define you.

Striving for excellence will ignite you – striving for perfection will destroy you.

Remember, no one takes you as seriously as you take yourself.

I want to go run now…but I’m leaving in a bit with K and PG to head to Runners High n Tri and meet Coach Jen! I’m excited and nervous…not 100% sure why!

More later after we get home with Pam! Hopefully pics too!
