Confidence Building – Day 25

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY!!!!

Time for today’s Confidence Builder!

30-Days To a More Confident You!

Day 25 – Take “Can’t” Out of Your Vocabulary!

That “I Can’t” story you tell yourself in your head is just a bunch of BS! Here is just a chapter from mine~

Five years ago tonight, I was getting ready to go to my favorite local festival but I really did not want to go. It is my very favorite weekend of the year, because I get to basically see EVERYONE I know all in one place! I am from a fairly small town, but most everyone at least stops by the KofC BBQ for a little bit.
But that year, I had reached my all time high in my weight at 275#. I felt horrible, and I was very self conscious about the way I looked. I was so unhealthy, that I had an appointment set up for 2 weeks later to have some tests run to see what was causing all the pain and other issues I was having. I KNEW the first thing that doctor was going to say was that I was too fat. Well…he used the term MORBIDLY OBESE! I was CRUSHED and felt like a TOTAL LOSER! On top of that, I drank like a fish and smoked like a chimney, and was still taking handfuls of RX painkillers for my back just to make it through the work day sitting at my desk!

But I went to that gathering, got DRUNK to numb out my “sad” feelings, and had a blast! But the next day, nothing had changed. I STILL felt like garbage, and I continued to treat myself like garbage. I never thought at that time that I could REALLY change. That I could even possibly do all the things I can do today. But I knew SOMETHING had to change. I could barely walk a few blocks at a time, and I was a chain smoking drunk! How was I ever going to change enough to actually be “healthy”.

But I DID! And I did it ONE STEP AT A TIME!!!

ALWAYS give yourself the benefit of the doubt! You are capable of SO MUCH MORE than you will ever give yourself credit for! Change your BS “I Can’t” story into a “I am currently working on becoming AWESOME!”

Your story it TOTALLY up to YOU! It is up to you to make the right decisions and choices to get you there, and I hope to be able to help you!

MAKE today GREAT and full of I CAN’s!!!

Head UP! Shoulders BACK! Smile ON! Now get out there and take on the world!!!

30-Days To a More Confident You! Day 24!!!

CRAZY morning on the Turnbaugh “Orphan Kitty” Ranch again! Got to work late so trying to sneak in a quick post!  I am learning ALL KINDS of interesting things about having kitties!  Some are really cool, but some are down right disturbing!  It is early as I write this, so I won’t go into details, but I had to separate them this morning! 😦  I am sad that they have to be alone in their own spaces, but I guess somethings just MUST be done!

Day 24 – Take An Impromptu Class!

What a perfect day for this one! I am teaching a slightly shortened Zumba Class tonight at Legacy Martial Arts! So if you have been thinking about trying out a Zumba class, or are afraid you couldn’t make it through a full hour class, TONIGHT IS YOUR NIGHT! We will be cutting it short by about 15 minutes, so I can be cleaned up and out of the building by 9PM! So 8:00-8:45 in the Oak Street Mall!

BUT…if you are not local, consider dropping in on a class! Don’t think about it and stew about it, just GO! Really! Most places will let you take your first class for FREE if you ask, SO ASK!

What kind of classes would you like to do or have you done in the past? If there was something you loved, do it again! Even if you think you are too out of shape, how will you build your endurance back up for it if you don’t try??? And if there is something that you always wanted to try but didn’t have the guts….TODAY is that day! Do not put off enjoying your life for even one more day!

GO OUT and LIVE!!!  Only you can MAKE your days GREAT!!!

Head UP! Shoulders BACK! Smile ON! Now get out there and take on the world!!!
