Small Successes (Vol 22)

1.  I lost another pound. I can't find it anywhere! This is one lost thing I won't be praying to St. Anthony for help to find.
Losing weight is very hard for me. My body just loves to hold on to fat. Just LOVES it! So every pound shed is a tremendous success for me!

2.  I've been doing this 30 day challenge that I mentioned last week.  This week I found an app for my phone that helps me make a useful to do list and another one that helps me keep track of the housework.  I get overwhelmed pretty easily when things pile up around the house and then I know, just know, I'm going to be the next candidate for Clean House.  Seriously.  So these apps are called Seize the Day, a free to-do app for iphone that actually is simple and so far is working for me. The other is called Home Routine, the most expensive app I've ever bought $4.99! I decided to buy it because it's cheaper than a maid.  It goes along the lines of the Fly Lady, with the zones and the morning and evening routines, but it is far less overwhelming.  Fly Lady always stressed me out, but this is working out much better.  There are checklists for each thing and it is actually helping me get my house straight in manageable increments.

All in all, I've been much more productive this week.

3.  Now is the time to dig deep.  What else have I succeeded at this week?............ OH!  I know!  Yesterday at ballet, my friend told me that I inspire her to exercise.  I workout early in the morning (otherwise it ain't happen') and she was feeling tired and lazy and a cold coming on, but she remembered that I was up working out and got up and did her own workout because of that!!!  What an awesome compliment!  Then this morning on Facebook another friend told me I was motivating her simply because I post my workout every day!  How about that?  Personally, it's very rewarding and humbling to think anything I do might inspire another person to make a good choice. That is the whole reason I became a Beachbody coach . This is my business and I hope to make a living at it, but if I never earn a cent, the knowledge that I have helped someone is enough.

Don't be modest.  Let me cheer you on!  Share your small successes on Faith and Family Live!
