What Will I Do? a motivating poem

Friday, February 06, 2009

Taken from a Spark page...........What I will do.....

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
And forget all about being healthy and thin.
So what! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the strugglers, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
That the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
But facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it...But DON'T YOU QUIT!

Boot Camp Challenge Goals

Sunday, January 04, 2009

I am beginning the Sparks Boot Camp Challenge today. I have been up and down in the same 4 pound range for about 2 weeks now. I know the challenge will get me kick started again. The challenge lasts the month of January and my goal is to be 190 pounds by the end. That's 10 pounds for me. I also would like to fit into the next size down jeans (yes, I own jeans in just about every size!) I know it will be difficult to keep with it because my job exhausts me and when I come home, I have a family to tend to and dinner to make. But just for January, I come first! We'll see what comes of February-lol.

    You should make February your month too. I can relate to the exhaustion. Work can be draining and so can running a household. I found myself doing squats while I was brushing my teath! I ran up and down the stairs an extra time to try to work off some calories. While I'm folding clothes I stand instead of sit and I bend my legs to reach for the next shirt that needs to be hung. I'm thinking it's about how creative we can be with our time because going to the gym doesn't always work out for me. I'm proud of you! Never give up. Never give up! NEVER GIVE UP!!! You are a treasure. Take care of you. emoticon

If you keep on doing what you're doing, you'll keep on getting what you're getting.

    Very true.

I think you will like my mantra:

Make every day count! Tomorrow starts today!

    Good quote.

I prefer "You miss 100% of the shots you never take"
