I've been doing quite well lately - with food and even with exercise - to some extent at least.
I’ve read various blogs lately about not giving up – about starting over –about really going for success. What an inspiring lot Sparkers are! Yes we CAN do it – all of us. It’s a question of each person persevering until they find their own individual way – however unconventional - and with help and support from Spark People and from so many Sparkers who are prepared to put themselves and their demons – and solutions – out there, I don’t feel alone despite my struggles with exercise in particular but also with food choices and I do see hope. I’m tempted to say that I hope my hopefulness comes good – but that’s not very positive is it? However – just saying I CAN DO IT is not entirely helpful either. I need a cover plan – and another plan to cover my cover plan – and possibly a third plan when in extremis. Belt, braces and the whole nine yards – and then some.
So - I am planning my food by the week to save random choices taking me off track and re- joining the Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, on the specific recommendation of a Spark friend, and also taking comfort another friend cheering me on when I felt low (see what I mean about the inspiration on here?!) in the hopes that it will encourage me to fulfill my commitment to the team and at least do SOMETHING on the days when I really 'can't be bothered'.
