Good day yesterday. We painted the kitchen and the dining area after Hubby cut in all the edges several weeks back while I was feeling poorly. The plan is to re-paint everything today. Pfff on the one-coat and done paint. We did have a much better ease of painting. DS1 said the outside temps have a lot to do with the ease of painting, drying and curing. Yesterday the high was 51* … today snow and a high of 30*.
With no blood pressure meds for two weeks … my BP is 130/83. Not bad.
More from Steve #84:
Fat people are products of middle-class programming.
Fit people are products of world-class programming.
Fat people aren’t fat because they’re less educated or intelligent than fit people. They’re fat because they’ve bought into the middle-class programming of the masses. Some well-known psychologists and other influential mental health professionals are publicly advising fat people to accept their fate and stop berating themselves. In essence, they’re being told to give up because they’re not tough enough to get fit.
Advising not to have too high of an expectation for their lives, lest they be disappointed and end up unhappy. They imply that most of us aren’t mentally tough enough to fight for what we want and persist until we get it, so we shouldn’t expect too much and simply be glad we have a roof over our head and clothes on our backs.
The average person speaks at a rate of 150-200 words per minute. The average person’s self-talk is about 1,300 words per minute.
This tells us that the real power of programming lies in the way we talk to ourselves all day long. Our self-talk is a significant agent of change we can all employ.
Critical Thinking Question: Are you ready to let go of the middle-class programming that allowed you to get fat, and accept full responsibility for all of your future results.???
Action Step: Start listening to world-class beliefs and philosophies every day until they are programmed into your conscious and sub-conscious minds.
Makes me think of the coach telling his athlete … YOU can succeed. YOU got this. He doesn’t mutter … do the best you can, it’s OK if you lose, everyone will still love you.
Many of you know Hubby and I took on home improvement projects. You also know that I love Hubby beyond … words.
We have lived in our lovely home for 21+ years. We didn’t tackle projects coz … we didn’t have the money. We didn’t know how to do XYG. We couldn’t agree. It would be too … hard.
My brain is exploding the whole time … coz I’m not afraid to … fail??? I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty??? Or my ego???
So, we started and stopped and started and stopped. Just like me losing weight. I get fired up, frustrated with my size and yucky feeling … and then stop. Start. Stop.
The last several weeks have been taken up with medicine issues … yet I have laid the foundation of … I’m not gonna fail.
What would you attempt if you KNEW you would not fail???
It’s time to be … ME.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
Coz … I want to be ME.
