"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It's not just in some of us; its in all of us."
That is so awesome, I like when I do a to do list and every day include some small but manageable chores which also include simply the word exercise some times i can do 45 mins other times im lucky to squeeze in 10 mins but knowing its on my list, and i can do whatever i need to do works for me
I won't miss the sunset, because Im afraid of the dark.

YAY - doesn't it feel GOOD? I've been doing some of those things (water, freggies) for so long they are as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth, but even after two years of sparking I was still struggling with regular strength training. Then a few weeks ago I read a blog by another sparker who is STREAKING - with healthy goals.
It was like a light bulb went off in my head - that's how I can make ST a habit!! For the last 16 days I've been doing upper body one day, lower body the next and core the third. Then starting over!! My streak is for 9 sets of reps but most days now I do more - and its getting EASIER!! Why did it take me so long to figure it out? Don't know, but I've got it now!!
Best of luck to you - you've got it too!!

One day at a time, one step st a time. Good luck, success is in your reach.
The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !

Congrat's to you. You sound like your moving forward. Great for you. Keep it going, you will succeed.

Nice job! You are doing exactly what you need to do. One step at a time which is actually quite challenging in our current era of frustration because the computer takes a minute to boot up instead of 30 seconds. Keep up the good work.
I always tell people I coach that you have to walk before you run. That statement is true for any kind of change. I'm proud of you for walking, and I can't wait to see you run. Enjoy your journey! Carrie

It's day 7 for me of sticking to the fast break phase! It's the first time I've done stage one properly, just setting small goals and meeting them and preparing myself for a lifetime of healthy habits, instead of undertaking "perfect" eating, huge fitness challenges, and quitting when I can't keep up with such overwhelming changes.
It hasn't been perfect, I have slipped up on some of my smaller goals, but I've successfully: Drank a huge glass of water every morning for 7 days, which is cructial to me working out efficiently Worked out at least 10 minutes a day each day this week Kept my surroundings clean, organized, and manageable which keeps my stress and stress-eating habits away Posted my goals every single day in my planner and met them!
I feel good. And stronger. And now it's time for me to go work out. =]
