There's no understand where my motivation goes when it decides to take a walk.
But. . . I think it has made a full circle and is back with me again to begin this Summer Challenge.
Lord knows that I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
But without that little spark of get up and go...it ain't gonna happen.
Hey....maybe that's where SPARK TOOK ITS NAME! All it takes is a SPARK of SOMETHING - maybe Motivation - Yeah!!!!
*I joined Spark 2 years ago when I friend told me about it.
*I do believe I am committed 100% to this Summer Challenge - and I have not been able to say that for the past 3 challenges - but the Sapphires said to hang in there and I have.
*My expectations are sturdy but reasonable - eat healthy, exercise, drink water, help out my Team, journal, track food... just the usuals - that work if you work 'em.
Here's to Workin' 'Em. (glass held high in a toast!)

I know I can't eat carbs.
I know I can't eat tons of carbs.
I know I can't have sweets in the house or in my car.
I didn't do well b/c sometimes I think I CAN MANAGE sweets and carbs.
I watched that tv show where the person weighs 600 pounds. It was so inspirational for me, how hard the young girl worked to lose more than 300 pounds!!!
. I got up right then and dumped all of the candy I had just bought for half price. There was A LOT OF IT. I just dumped it in the garbage can and then to make sure I didn't go back and get it out, I poured cooking oil all over the top. I meant business!!!
Then, I got back on my low carb way of eating and have lost 4.5 pounds in a week. So, Sapphire Beauties, I may not end this challenge with an overall loss, but I sure did lose this week #10.
Being part of the Sapphires motivates me each and every day. Whether I choose to act on that is up to me. And today, I choose to make healthy choices.

well, i guess i was not ready to get back on the wagon yet.
is there a rehab center for obese people that is affordable?
something has got to change.
on top of feeling bad physically and emotionally, i feel bad that i continually let my team down.
on the positive side - i'm still working on my novel. I'm working on a new cathedral quilt. my pacemaker is humming along great. i am still enjoying my retirement.
i am grateful for all my blessings and for my spark team.

If Spark has taught me anything it is this:
* I know what to do to be healthy - I just have to keep doing it.
* I have get the junk food out of the kitchen
* I have to drink my water
* I have to get on my stat bike
* I have to have healthy go to foods handy
* I have to keep in touch with my Sapphire Beauties Team
* I have to take care of my emotions so the wind doesn't knock me down.
* I have to set me a weight loss goal # - like 15% each challenge.
Those are not IMPOSSIBLE THINGS. I just have to keep on doing them. Hour after hour, day after day, week after week, challenge after challenge.
May we all Keep on Keepin' On for our health and happiness.
