One obstacle down and I'm up a running again!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Well, I knew it would come. The day I just couldn't keep it together. We all have them and yesterday was mine. I had furious cravings that just wouldn't turn me lose. I tried to deny them for as long as I could but when I couldn't take it anymore I had the foods/drink I wanted. What's been my problem in the past is that when its happened I've felt so guilty that I would berate myself to no end which would then lead me to give up altogether. This time I was mentally prepared for the fall. As much as I'd like to think that I would never make mistakes, I, like everyone else did. The difference this time is that that was yesterday and today is a new day. What happened in my past doesn't have to negatively effect the rest of the journey but become a lesson. The lesson I learned from this episode is that I don't have to feel so guilty that I take my spirit to such a low point that it won't allow me to rise for weeks or months at a time. I messed up yesterday and today I'm back in the saddle. So let's ride! emoticon

    emoticon Great, that is my new mantra, "No matter what I will not quit this lifestyle change - I will not give up, no matter how many setbacks I have!"

How long have you lived in AZ? Do u like it there? Just curious as I live in Indianapolis, IN & have never been to AZ.

  That's a good attitude.

I'm thinking there are some who say for example...

1. " I'm never eating oreos again. Guess what you WANT/ crave

2. Others say, I'm going to let myself eat 2 oreos and that's it

3. Other just eat handfuls
and have a binge.

one and 3 are out of balance and control. But we can learn from any of this, if we choice to.

    It's two steps forward and one step back, but so long as you're still headed in the right direction, stay hopeful and fill your mind with thoughts of success. You so can do it.

All the best achieving your goal.

Headed in the Right Direction

Thursday, August 15, 2013

emoticon I knew when I begn this lifestyle change journey that it would not be easy. But I promised myself that this time there would be no room for excuses. That is why when I laid in bed this morning not wanting to get up and go for my morning walk I responded with throwing off the covers and putting my feet on the floor, after lifting myself off the edge of the bed, I began to move one foot in front of the other until I found myself on my walking path. I burned 296 calories that I would have continuted to carry had I not made the effort to put one foot in front of the other. One thing I've learned so far is that it really is that simple.

I'd say I'm moving in the right direction. How about you?

Tomorrow will be the first day of change for me that has been a long time in coming. I have not been happy with myself or my life for a while now, feeling stuck, unmotivted, useless. But here lately I've realized that my unhappiness is of my own doing. I have to create my happiness in spite of. In spite of the things I can and cannot control, I can still be happy, I can still move forward, I can still live the life I dream of living. Watch me fellow sparkspeople cuz it's on!
