Exercise

Friday, January 29, 2010

Why do I fight the very thing that heals me, gives me energy and joy, takes away my pain, strengthens me, inspires me, and helps me meet all my life goals. Well today I did not fight, I just did it and it was glorious! Yes, I am talking about exercise, if I could recreate today everyday I would, because I don't know what made the difference today, it was effortless and easy and fun...let me bottle this and take it with me always! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hooray for you and enjoy the moment! Up until about a year ago, I was never much of an exerciser. I now embrace it and love the way it makes me feel... those endorphins are awesome! LOL Hugs to you and have a great week-end.

Progress not perfection

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Today I did some good things and some not so good things. I choose to focus on the good today. I am making progress towards my goal, not perfect today but progressing. Keeping my eyes on my goal will get me there and hating myself won't. Sharing the spark is good, and a little gentleness goes along way (with myself and others). I am grateful for a good food day and will add the exercise tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

    I saw your blog title on the Readers of the Spark wall and I just had to come and say hello! I say "progress, not perfection" all of the time! Isn't it motivating? emoticon

The Storm brings the rainbow

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Today was a massive storm which came and went through out the day. I was in the gym when the thunder hit the roof top and and I felt it vibrate in my bones. The wind and rain pounded and I thought how will I ever make to my car. But in what seemed like a few moments the sun peaked out and someone ran out the door and exclaimed "a rainbow"...and there it was as bright and full as I have ever seen extending from the earth to the sky and down again. Its like we can have a darkest days but then unexpectedly a bright spot appears and we know we are on the path again. Keep the faith and believe...never give up because in just a moment a rainbow will appear and joy will again fill your heart and life. emoticon emoticon

Sharing the Spark

Saturday, January 16, 2010

This week I talked to everyone I saw (well almost) about Sparkpeople.com ! Surprised that so many women are looking for a way to get motivated and inspired. I made my vision board, logged my food and exercise and guess what...its working or am I imaging that scale dropping?? Did I really lose that 2 pounds or what. Do you ever find yourself doubting your weight loss? I feel it in my clothes, my gut and my heart... I just let it go with no need to find it again. I am on my journey and I love that sparkpeople gives me the structure to wrap my self around. It holds me up like a strong friend, who is always there. I am just giving myself the gift of gentleness, and it feels right after all the years of guilt and shame I am feeling good about me today.
