This week was my limit week. My limit with many of my goals, and it sucked. Not quite sure what else to say, expect that and share this awesome photo:
Its one of those days where I just want to eat a whole chocolate cake or a bucket of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice-cream, while I watch Oprah’s farewell episode and then crawl into bed and sleep for 12 hours.
Here the challenge is to understand what is really going on, what am I making up, what part of all of this is make-belief, suffery stuff and what do I really need to address.
So, as you can see, it’s a busy task and I don’t have time to eat a bucket of ice cream or a chocolate cake and go to sleep, I need to sort my thoughts and feelings and aligns them with my goals.
I loved it. It hit really close to home with one of the goals I struggle with the most, money. As one of my earlier post points out, I suck with money. And I have some big amounts to gather this year and can’t see how I am EVER going to reach them. Thanks to this article, I will start a special daily project, it’s going to be called my Small Daily Goal. I am still not sure if I will share it in my daily blog posts, or in my agenda or on my Twitter account, but I think this will be a great exercise.
This will be a great addition to an already amazing goals program that I learnt while being a coach for Executive Success Programs. Thanks to this goal program, I have been able to lose weight, start doing triathlon and be more mindful with my actions. Will doing this bring me closer to my goal? Will spending money on this, bring me closer to my goal? Will taking this course, bring me closer to my goal?
I guess you have different tools in life, books, blog posts, courses, advise from friends and family. It’s all a matter of if you use these tools or not.
My first daily small goal: not buying any more sports gear today. Have some money left in my account, but need it for something else. And all day I have browsed athletics gear webpage. So the goal will be to not spend that money.
Where do you think this tip may help you? What goal do you struggle with?
I just came out f watching this documentary and completely shifted the way I relate to extreme sports and athletes in general! Amazing!
How many times have you been trying to be on a diet and have found yourself saying: “I need something sweet”?
As if something sweet was as indispensable as a glass of water in the middle of the desert or a bite to eat after four days of being stranded in the top of a cliff?
I know about it. I know how it feels to think that eating something is a better idea, than sitting with that awful feeling in your gut that you might actually die, unless you put the fire out with something that is completely unnecessary!
I have made a small list of “notes to self” that have helped me fight the “I need something sweet” battle. Hope they help you as much as they have helped me.
My triathlon coach, Gerrard Smith, uploads amazing articles for us about training, motivation and nutrition. I wanted to share this article that I was reading today about day-to-day nutrition:

Since the day I decided to invest money in my blog, I have not stopped thinking on ideas for it. Looking at cool blogs, cool photos, and evaluating how much would I be willing to spend, or do to make it better. It’s probably the most entrepreneur thing I have done in my life, so it’s very special and important for me.
I feel I would like some cool photos of myself and the place where I live. Photos that represent what is most important for me, sport, health, family, helping others and human potential. I would also like to get some web design advise, since I am not sure this template will be what I want.
These are some of the webpages I have turned to for inspiration:
So thank you beautiful girls!
How exciting! After weeks of thinking about it, I moved. I had been for the past 17 months in blogspot.com, using a free blog page. Today I decided to give it an upgrade. Considering how much I love to write and how much of an amazing part of my life blogging has become, this seemed like the natural evolution of this project.
The only unfortunate thing is that I lost my stats. I left www.natalia1albert.blogspot.com with 7,431 hits. and here I start from 0. But I guess I can always keep these numbers in mind.
Another thing I did today was helping my mom with her blog. She is such an amazing women, mother, wife and human being. She is my biggest inspiration and my best role model. Please find the link to her blog, its amazing: www.
One last update on whats going on in my life, after my first full triathlon on Sunday, then a 1500 meter swim and a 5km run on Wednesday and Oxfam Trail Walk over the weekend, my body, mind and heart are in some sort of athletic blues mode (is this normal? does this happen? or is it just me?).
Wrote an entire article for my blogg today and dint like it at the end. So here goes a short one, some pullet points of what is going on in my life:
