Shaping the new ME

Saturday, July 12, 2014



Each day I wake up with the choice to have a great day or a not so great day. It seems I feel I have more bad days than good. But the truth is I'm harder on myself than I need to be. I'm not doing badly I'm just not doing as good as I could be. So with that said.......

It is time to SHAPE THE NEW ME. I can't begin to tell you how badly I want this. I can tell ya that I have missed the boat on this a lot lately. But somehow I've gotten myself to finally seeing changes again, clothes fitting once again, running on the treadmill again, eating better and planning more. So yup I've had those NSV as well as a few scale ones. Not so many scale ones but all the same I just feel better. So today as I head off to work some more on the ME I want to be I want to say thank you to all my Spark Friends and team mates. Without all of you I don't know if I would of been going at this as long as I have. Seeing your struggles and successes keeps me moving towards my own goals.

Trust in YOU

Sunday, July 06, 2014


Paul the SparkPeople programmer says:
Wanting and doing are not the same things. Don't say you want something. DO what's necessary to get what you want.

Oh how often I've wished for healthy living. I want it but do I WANT it? I mean why do we/me continue to do the things that upset our healthy balance day in and day out if health is what we/I want?

Well I can't speak for you all but for me it is all about the journey. I travel these roads day in and day out. Oh I trip over stones, pebbles really because at first it is just a slip, then it turns into a walk over a boulder. Why? I know what I need to do, I know what I want to do, so how hard can it be to get it done? Really?????

Change is never easy for any of us. Change means leaving your comfort zone and heading to a whole new place. A place of discomfort at times, a place where your safety net...food....is not there so what is a person to do? Trust. Trust in yourself, trust that you will reach all your goals, but most of all trust in yourself that you are exactly what is needed to get there. So for trust to work you have to take one tiny step on that dirt road at a time. Feel with your toe first if you have to but take that first step. Then just continue that walk till your walking down that road with a skip in your step.

We can do this. We/me just needs to begin to trust in ourselves and what we/I can do.

Michelle.

    There is an old saying: You can always tell what you really intended to do by looking at what you did. When you want something badly enough that you are willing to go to any lengths to get it, then you will seek out the ways to get there.

    Thanks for posting.
"coulda/shoulda" really isn't helpful that's for sure.
Let's work today towards that brand new end.

I may have found my "aha"

Be resolute in your goals,
but flexible in your tactics.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Today marks one day of great eating. I had an awesome day yesterday. I worked around this house till eleven and then I got a shower and headed to town for groceries. I even bought meals and not junk. My goal was for the meals portion and snacks were not an option. You see snacks is where I fall prey to the overeating syndrome. I will munch my way through a bag of chips, In no time flat. So I didn't even go there.

I awoke yesterday with such determination to succeed. I have had enough of the sometimes and the part times, I'm so ready for all the time. Oh I know I won't be perfect all the time. but by George I can give it my best to be good 80% of the time. So as I take this journey one hour at a time I leave no room for doubt. I want to see my goal reached and a healthy BMI in my future.

    I don't snack for that very reason: I just can't seem to control it. It's easier to look at my planner and remind myself of what wonderful food is next on the meal plan, then really look forward to it.
