As I have mentioned when I first joined spark people, my downfall was being a perpetual pessimist. I always looked at the negative side of things and it has always been a road block to my success.
I have been making it my goal to turn around and to look at the postitve/ bright side of things so that I do not spiral down a path of negativity.
So as things in my life have just been turned upside down momentarily, here is my positive spin.
I used to have a 2 hour trip home everyday because my husbands car broke down, and my positive spin on that was that I got to walk 1 mile every weekday without fail.
Now he is out of work and I loose that 1 mile walk alone because I get to use the car now. My positive spin? I can now use that time to do a walk with the whole family so that we are giving my kids a positive example on thier health and daily activities. Since it is still snowy here in my part of town, that usually means going to the mall and walking around or finding another building that we can do our walking.
Oh and thanks to money crunching, I was able to successfully talk my husband into letting me buy ground turkey instead of ground beef which is healthier and cheeper, and my kids are loving the baby carrots I have stocked in the fridge.
(ps-- I got a new scale and was able to see that I have now lost a total of 15.8 lbs)
