A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step....

I found some wonderful motivational thoughts this morning and it could not have come at a better time for me. This is the method that I am trying to follow - breaking up problems into smaller parts, handling them each, one at a time therefore I am not overwhelmed.I realized yesterday that I can be successful each and every day during this time while my knee heals. I can set goals for the day and do what I can to reach them.

Goals can be as big or as small as you wish, they are yours to set and yours to reach. So I urge each of you to take a look at areas of your life where you can set small goals to reach at the end of each day. We all have a choice what we will do with each 24 hours that are given to us. If we do not have a plan, time will pass us by. I want to wake up each day with a mission. Some days the mission will be smaller than others but my goal will be to never stop reaching until I complete my task no matter how small it may be.

Today my goals are -

Drink water first before eating in the morning - done 32oz
Complete my ST workout with core
Ice my knee 4-5 times
Take all my supplements and vitamins
Finish all my water for the day - 128 oz
Stay within calorie range for the day
Do all of my stretches for my knee plus at least 20 min of yoga

Make something amazing happen today for yourself! What can you accomplish today? You will never find out if you do not at least try!!

Today is a gift - let's get out there and make it count!

Success is a determined action away –

Foolish people with all their other thoughts, have this one too.
They are always getting ready to live, but never living.

Your success will start when you begin to pursue it.
To reach your goal or to attain success, you don't need to knowall the answers in advance.

You just need to have a clear idea of what your goal is.
Don't procrastinate when faced with difficult problems.
Break your problems into parts, and handle one part at a time.

Develop tendencies toward taking action.
You can make something happen right now.

Divide your big plan into small steps and take that first step right away. Everyone who got where they are had to begin where they were. Your big opportunity is where you are right now.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Take it.

This is a fabulous workout. Thank you for sharing this. I hope to try these exercises tomorrow during my workout time. You are an inspiration to us all.
I can totally feel that pain from your slip on ice. I sprang my ankle about 8 years ago and sometimes when I step a certain way I can feel that pain again. We have to be cautious. I guess that is life?! RIGHT?!
Continue these strong S.T. Exercises.
