The price of success is hard work,
dedication to the job at hand,
and the determination that whether we win or lose,
we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
- Vince Lombardi
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt
until they are too strong to be broken.
- Samuel Johnson
An overfull calendar, like an overfull stomach,
is a consequence of taking on too much.
Commit, and eat, in moderation.
This morning as I read my emails these quotes just spoke of my journey. Our journey really. I have not given up on my sparking just haven't really had much to blog about lately. Oh i'm still continuing and taking care of me, for the most part. Just came off of vacation and it was a nice quiet time for me to reflect on me and my journey and to decide what it was I really want. I got to walk each day and that is really my thinking time. I headed back to work and had a great day. I was way more relaxed, and in control of myself. I very much needed that break. As for a break from my journey. Nope. I have my "moments" and i have to begin fresh somedays over and over but I do. Maybe now I can actually see some change again and get some of my confidence back. I think i've found a bit of it during reflection but I need so much more in myself.
So i'm off to begin another great day. I will continue the journey towards ME.

Problems cannot be solved at the same level
of awareness that created them.
- Albert Einstein
Today is my first day of vacation officially. Not that I haven't enjoyed the last couple of days but you know how it is. I have plans for today, mostly to stay on track, but again it is vacation and that may me tough. I really need to become more aware of myself and what i'm doing. I noticed this weekend I ate when bored whether hungry, most of the time not, or not. So today is more about awareness for me. I need to jump over this hurdle, which really isn't much of a hurdle, I find im doing a lot of my eating out of habit rather than hunger. So time for new habits. I feel like the lttle train that could....I think I can I think I can, I know I can I know I can.
I won't beat myself up over my eating habits this weekend. I ate and I enjoyed most of it. I won't say all because at one point I stopped myself and wondered what in the heck I was thinking. so i'm aware there is a problem it is in the working it i'm having a bit of trouble. So today I begin fresh. I have been watching hungry girl on sundays and have gotten a few tips I intend to follow today. soup for a snack, is an example.
So let my new path in life begin now. I know I can succeed.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
- Lao Tzu
Patience, persistence, and perseverance.
A little more each day, a little better each day.
Just wanted to give a quick update on my progress for the week. I"m down 2.6 this week. Can we sayyyyyyy YES!!!!!!!
Sorry Weight watchers but I had to try the old program once again. The other just wasn't doing it for me. No matter what I did I was gaining. So I went back to the old and lost this week. Will I continue this next week? You can bet your bottom dollar I will. My next goal 135.0 again. A little each day and a bit each week I will reach my goals.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.

These last months have been so upsetting for me. Not that anyone or anything did it but me. I start off with such great intentions and then just fizzle out. I mean this past month I lost great and then I gained and finished the month higher then I began. Now that is just not right. I need to step up my game and get back to it. So for a few days I have been so on track that i'm scaring myself. But it was time to take on myself and not give in.
Food has become my constant companion and it is time to change that. I'm down to eating my three meals and at work i'm trying to cut my "break" out. I mean to have water is one thing but to eat like it is a small meal is something else. So for a few days this past week I just grabbed my water and headed out of the break room. That way no time for the vending machine to stop me in my tracks. Funny when I look over my past I see the me I was and the me i'm becoming and the two are so different. When I began this journey I weighed and measured, counted, checked, planned. I lost most weeks, oh I had plateaus but after a few down weeks I began moving again. Now it has been months of ups and not many downs to the point i've gained at the end. So it was time to sit back down, plan my stratagy, see my trouble areas and just begin fresh.
Nothing wrong with starting over the wrong is quitting. I'm not a quitter and I won't give up on me. I just need to step up my game.
