Who is your Guru?

August 4, 2010 3 comments

Is there a person in your life you look to for advice?  Are they a friend or family member? Or do you have more that one.

I have many Guru’s.  I feel that one should have a multitude of life experiences which in my opinion bring us Gurus.

I posted last week that reaching out to a stranger can be a GREAT thing.  Well I would like to say that Rita @ The Giggly Bits has become my Motivation and Healthy living Guru.  (Surprise Rita).

She has written many posts that I whole heartedly recommend.  Her most recent post is to create a vision board and to write a mission statement for your healthy lifestyle.  So I took her advice and here is my Healthy Mission Statement (note it may evolve as it is a work in progress):

“Ensuring to promote healthy lifestyle by learning and exploring food options. Promoting a stronger and flexible body, mind and soul, by partaking in physical exercise and yoga.”

Running with Goals!

DSC00351(Ready Set Get RUNNING)

So I was reading some of my avid motivators posts in my Google Reader… and I was OhSheGlows (OSG) recent post on Goal Setting. She has written a list of about 10 goals and is dedicating to try to accomplish those this week. 

Also I do follow some on Twitter and OSG tweeted earlier about a specific race in Toronto.  The Scotia Bank Marathon which many runners participate in.  Well I looked up the run and they have a 5K.  It is about 11 Weeks away, and the C25K plan *which I have been slacking to start* is only 9 weeks.  So here are some of my goals, Thank You OhSheGlows for the motivation.

Goals for this Week:

  1. START RUNNING and Finish Week 1 of my Running Plan
  2. Experiment with my Overnight Oats
  3. Make a new vegetarian meal
  4. Pack my lunch and SNACKS! Everyday this week
  5. Instead of surfing the web, try a new activity
  6. Enjoy the little things!
  7. Get in some Yoga this week

I hope these small achivable goals will help in the motivation to get off my butt…
