Froggie is Jumping Ship!!!!

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

I have decided to "jump ship" from the negative mindset & jump into the positive mindset!!!! My negative thinking & self-sabotage have held me prisoner long enough!!!! I need to establish a doable daily routine & I have been thinking.........{smoke rises}.....I believe I have come up with one to start!! This is difficult for me because I HAD a "normal" routine until about 34yrs ago when Jim & I met!! He was Mr. Spontaneity!! He HATED routines of ANY kind & would not plan anything & if we did, he would change it at the last minute!!!! He broke me of having a routine!! The last hold out was my job, which he had no control over, but that was almost 20yrs ago!!!! Hopefully you can understand why this is so HARD for me!!!!

...Attitude" is EVERYTHING in this process!!!!
What is my "intention"?? I intend to lose weight.....I intend to exercise every morning.....I intend to stick to my diet plan.....and on and on and so on!! Now IF those were TRULY my intention, I would be well on my way to accomplishing them!! BUT.....I let my "attention" get diverted & focused on the problems instead of keeping my "attention" on my "intentions"!! Do I have your eyeballs spinning yet??

THIS is my "intention"!! I want to create a new me!! I want to have a healthier lifestyle, weigh much less, & eat sensibly!! BUT.....I allow every little bump in the road or comment by someone or even the self-sabotaging voice in my head to distract me from my intention, my goal!!!! How do I do that?? I allow my "attention" to change my "attitude"!! I wind up discouraged, let down, depressed, mad at myself, feeling sorry for myself, & eventually.....just give up!!!!

I am at a point in my life where I either give up & just "exist" as I am.......OR.......I actually MAKE some MAJOR Life decisions in MULTIPLE areas of my Life.......all at once!!!!

This is FAR from EASY!!!! It is "easy" to say what you want & to make the "usual" New Year's Resolutions!!!! It is "easy" to figure out what is wrong in your life & make a list of what you would like to do about it!! It is "easy" to give yourself the same old pep talk & to start the New Year with the best of "intentions.......BUT.........
it is HARD to actually put a Plan together to MEET those INTENTIONS & to move FORWARD to ACTUALLY make the changes necessary to MEET your Goals!!!!

I am QUEEN of EXCUSES for "why" my life is a mess & "why" I CAN'T make changes in my life!!!! I have said the same thing a thousand times before & ALWAYS FAIL.........WHY is NOW any different???? Am I FINALLY at my lowest point & ready to MAKE those necessary changes to IMPROVE my quality of Life????

As with years before, I THINK I am READY to actually MAKE the necessary CHANGES!!!! I am TRYING to sift through the minutiae of my life & make some reasonable & doable changes!!!! This can NOT be done OVERNIGHT, but it CAN be DONE!!!! SO.......with THAT said....... is today's Plan:

Wednesday (12/31/14) ~ New Year's Eve
✔ **My PUSH Goal ~ To develop & establish a Daily Routine

    Great blog, Jae! You'll get it figured out, and have a great, workable plan! I'm making plans of my own right now to improve in areas that I need to. We can sort through the distractions and excuses, and improve our situation/health/etc. one day at a time!
    Best of luck with your endeavors! Keep in tough!
