New Month, New Start!
Ok, so I did it. I am determined to start of this new month of February, 2010 the right way. Last week, I started reading a book for my Communications Class in school titled "Looking In, Looking Out" by Ronald B. Adler and Russell F. Procter II.
In it I am learning not only how to become a better communicator but also it's giving me a few psychological lessons. It says that we pre-program our days. If we start the day out thinking it will go all bad, then it will.
However, if you start the day on a positive note, usually it will be that way. I tested this theory yesterday. On Sunday Jan 31st, I set my alarm for 5:00 a.m. pst, the next day. I said to myself, tomorrow I will wake up early, workout by 7:00 am and get as much done as possible.
I also said, I won't play on the internet while at work, even though I do work from home. No Facebook or Tweeting. I also said I would meditate 5 minutes before my workday started. I did it! I did everything I set my mind to do.
I plan on continuing this plan for 21 days. I want to make these things a habit and since to make or break a habit takes 21 days, well I have no choice. My goal is to look like this in the future:
My husband would say, that's a pretty good goal if you ask me. I bet! = )
Today is day 2, I did it again! Got up at 5:00 am, ok well more like 5:30 am and then yes, I worked out!
I did my zen thing and meditated. The day looks great so far! Tune in tomorrow for an update! Zennnnnn, Zennnnn......
Before I forget, my daughter got a puppy from my childhood friend, Margie about 2 weeks ago. He is a poodle mix. She called him "Oso", which means bear in Spanish. He is the cutest thing ever! I took him to my friends pet grooming company in Tracy, California called "Decadent Pets"! She did an awesome job with my daughters doggie.
Here is his before pic:
