Put Your Mind To It, Go For It

About

My name is Karen and I created this blog as a place to write about my new lifestyle.  I have spent years of my life trying to become someone of value. But, as I have recently discovered, I always have been worthy of so much more than I’d given myself credit for. I just didn’t value myself enough to realize that.

Now, after a semi-recent epiphany, I have come to realize that I have so much to offer to myself and to others. And so, this blog serves as a place for me to share that.

You may consider this to be just another weight loss blog but I hope that it will be more than that. The Weight Watchers program changed my life. After years as a practicing and non-practicing Weight Watcher, I learned how to “work the program” and make it part of my life. Here I share those tips as well as other insights from my on-going journey of self discovery and weight management.

Why Hot Sundae?

One of my favorite motivational quotations comes from an episode of Saved By The Bell in which the women characters, Jesse, Kelly, and Lisa, form a girls’ singing group. Zack dubs the group Hot Sundae and produces a music video of the girls singing and dancing to a song titled Go For It. As a confessed Saved By The Bell enthusiast, I even have this track on my iPod.

The brilliant lyrics are as follows:

1, 2, 3, Bend!
1, 2, 3, Stretch!
1, 2, 3, Bend!
1, 2, 3, Stretch!
Here’s a message that I’m sendin’ to you,

You can do what you want to do.
A little work never hurt no one,
It’s the only way to get things done.

Put your mind to it, go for it,
Get down and break a sweat.

Rock and roll, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Mind to it, go for it,
Get down and break a sweat,
Rock and roll, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

My love is strong whenever you’re around,
I walk on air, I barely touch the ground.
And I’m so happy that I’m with you now,
You’ll never see me in the lost and found.

Put your mind to it, go for it,
Get down and break a sweat,
Rock and roll you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Mind to it, go for it,
Get down and break a sweat.
Rock and roll you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

My love is there for you,
The rest is up to you.
Yeaheeyeaheeyeahyeahyeah
Hoohoohoohoooo
Naananannananananaaa
Hooooooo!

I feel so good whenever you are near,
You make my troubles seem to disappear.
You’re the one that I’ve been searching for,
‘Cuz every day I love you more and more.
Put your mind to it, go for it,
Get down and break a sweat,
Rock and Roll, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Mind to it, go for it.
Get down and break a sweat,
Rock and roll, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Get down and go for it!
