I finally made the list!!!!

Monday, May 02, 2011

I've been a member of spark for a little over five years. When I signed up I didn't really know where this journey would take me. I started doing exercise and eating right, but I still struggled to make it and I couldn't understand why. Yes I talked to other members and encouraged them to continue to walk their journey's as well. I still struggled even though I joined the gym, joined curves and a few other programs to teach me to eat right and exercise consistently. I tried diet programs and special diets that help you lose weight fast. I lost a few lbs. and I'd gain the weight right back. Now five years have gone by and from all this I learned that no diet pill can make you feel good about you. No diet program can make see yourself for who you truly are. No gym membership means I'm gonna go to the gym. A spark friend can only encourage and give you kind words to help you reach your goals. None of my spark friends can do the work for me.
It's taken me five years to learn what others have known from day one.
You have to take daily action towards your goals. You have to reach out to others when you struggle to help motivate you to hold on. You have to make the decision to be healthy, fit and stick to your decision. Most of all when you write your to do list make sure that you are on it. I wake up everyday and make the conscious decision to work out and eat right. Before I do anything for anyone else I workout and eat a healthy breakfast.
I have finally made my own list and it feels good. I walk by the mirror and I smile because I see the results of all my hard work. Yes I work hard but I'm having fun to. Now when I go to the gym I'm serious and I get a great work out.
God has been good to me and answered my prayer to be fit. What he showed me was all I needed was inside of me the whole time.
Thank you all of my spark friends for all your support , because when I see you guys doing it I know I can too!!!! emoticon

Goal-Setter or Goal-getter?

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Setting goals does work, and being a goal setter means you will make a list of short and long term goals. Then you will do one of two things you will lay your list aside and it will collect dust. You have taken no action so you've seen no results. So you are in phase 1 goal setter.

The second thing that may happen you look at your list daily, and take action towards those goals. Maybe you want muscle development,better eating habits, lifestyle change goals, or behavioral goals. What ever your goal is remember,
Goal Setting + 0 action=0 results
Goal Setting + Action = Goal Getting
Goal Getting + Consistency= Tremendous Results

Take action one day at a time and you'll be amazed at where you'll be in 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years etc.......

Be GOAL GETTERS!!!!!!!! This is phase II and the sky is the limit!!! emoticon

Ready to live life!!!!!!

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I'm in the battle with her everyday. I say let's go walk and she says no let's lay here 10 more minutes. I say no and she says I wish you would just go away.
I say she is the one who must go away cause I have work to do. If you are wondering who she is? She is that little voice in my head that I struggle against from time to time. That old sedentary that just wants to slump on the couch and do nothing. I don't have time for her anymore, because she just doesn't understand where we are going. So I'm the driver now the one who's in control. I'm working out, drinking water, logging in everyday, changing old bad habits into good ones and feeling good about all my progress. She has started to quiet down a little because she doesn't drive anymore. But wondering where this is going to take us. Well I can see it and it is quite grand. I'm fit,slim,energetic,outgoing,and just having fun. This is where we are going, we are going is to live. I'm Ready to Live LIFE!!!!!!!!
