Stop Wishing, Start Doing: Carmen M. of Chicago wi...

Last Monday, we ran a contest based on a blog piece written by one of our writers about the “One Thing” that she does that makes a difference in achieving her goals, hopes and dreams. We thought it was a great idea and we invited all of our Aspire™ drinkers to contribute (in 500 words or less) their “one thing”.

We got some great entries, and while it was a tough to choose, we ended up picking Carmen M. from Chicago as our winner. Carmen will get a FREE CASE of her favorite flavor (Apple + Acai) of Aspire.

And, as part of her winning, here is her entire winning essay:

Stop Wishing, Start Doing! That's the message from Carmen M of Chicago in her winning essay in our One Thing contest. Carmen gets a FREE CASE of healthy energy, calorie burning, zero calorie Aspire™ for her efforts. Will you be our next winner?

My ONE THING that keeps me feeling like my best and happiest self is that on my bathroom mirror, I stuck a Post It note that says, “Stop wishing, Start doing.” It’s a great motivator both every morning when I wake up and brush my teeth, wash my face, etc, and every night when I do the same to stop feeling sorry for myself and be the change that I want to see.

Reading those four simple words motivates me to start my day off right and give it my all, and then it gets me in the right mindset before I go to bed for the next day.

I hung up this post-it note just 3 weeks ago, and since then, I have felt more energized, I have stopped eating foods that make me feel bad about myself without even really realizing it, and I’ve gone down an entire jean size. Amazing what ONE THING can do for you. The only downside is now I have to spend money on new pants!

I encourage everyone and anyone trying to boost their confidence, to shed a few pounds, or to feel just healthier over all to implement some type of mantra like mine into their lives. It doesn’t have to be the same, as long as it inspires you to make better choices for yourself, you’ll be on the right track!

All the best,

Carmen

“Just One Thing…” How to Succeed...

I’m one of those people who makes really ambitious resolutions and goals. 

Hmmm… wait. “Ambitious” isn’t really the right word.

“Completely unrealistic and doomed to fail” is more accurate.

I’ll decide one day, after scowling at my reflection in the mirror or sighing in frustration over the scale for the ten thousandth time, that “I want to drop 50 lbs” or “I’m going to run five miles a day.”

And for the next 48 hours, I am singularly focused on making it happen.

I slash calories from my diet and wake up at 5:00am to hit the pavement. I am energized and full of determination.

And then by day three, I’m stretched out on the couch, feeling sore all over from working out for the first time in months. I’m inhaling a candy bar because I can’t handle one more minute of a starvation diet of little more than rice cakes and salads.

See what I mean? Doomed to fail.

It’s a vicious cycle that ends up leaving me feeling worse than ever. The really crazy thing is I’ve been doing this to myself for years.

Get frustrated. Make a dramatic, unsustainable change. Fail miserably. Get frustrated.

One day, I did ONE THING differently…

About 8 months after the birth of my second daughter, when my weight was at its highest and my body confidence at its lowest, I finally had enough.

I knew I needed to make a change, but I couldn’t stand to put myself through that horrible cycle one more time.

Juggling two young children (one of whom doesn’t sleep through the night and the other wakes up at 5:30am) and a full-time job leaves me absolutely exhausted on a daily basis. But, even so, I knew that it wasn’t an excuse to just give up and not take care of myself.

One night at dinner, I was about to put the last forkful of food in my mouth, when I stopped.

I set my fork down, feeling oddly giddy.

I realized that I didn’t have to put myself on a crazy diet. What if I just ate one less forkful? Just one.

I got up from the table and cleared that last bite of food into the trash. It was just one small bite, but it represented something BIG.

The next night I did it again. And the night after that. By the end of the week, I was still doing it.

Just One Thing... How to Succeed at Big Goals by Doing Something Small. A What Do YOU Aspire To? Blog Post

Something BIG was happening…

I realized that I didn’t have to make a big crazy change to feel better about myself. I just had to do ONE THING differently. It didn’t have to be a big thing, either. Just one small change.

One evening after dinner, I decided that going for a walk was a much better idea than sitting on the couch. And soon there we were. The baby was in a carrier on my back and my oldest daughter was riding her scooter, and we were making our way slowly around the cul-de-sac.

“One thing,” I whispered to myself.

A few days later, I was at the store and reached for my usual candy bar at the checkout lane when I stopped. I wasn’t even craving chocolate. I was reaching for it out of habit.

“One thing,” I said to myself, and let my hand fall back to my side.

“One thing” has become my mantra. My personal philosophy. My battle cry.

It’s been a month, and I’m doing all sorts of “one things.” Going for walks with the kids when we can. Eating a little less. Choosing healthier foods.

Out of curiosity, I stepped on the scale yesterday.

I’ve lost 8 pounds.

I do still want to lose more weight (I’m still rocking the maternity clothes 9 months postpartum), but I’m not focused on the number on the scale. All I let myself think about is the ONE THING I can do right now to make myself healthier.

And this time, I know I’ll succeed.
