Trying to Get Back

Friday, April 04, 2008

So, I was sick for about a bit over a week, so that put me way back. Who am i kidding, though? i had stopped doing sparkpeople before then b/c i felt guilty about messing up so much. :p
so, here i am again (i say that to God a lot, as well!), trying start anew. hope i can stay motivated. any and all encouragement is very welcome!

    They say the first step is the hardest.

    I think "they" lie.

    I can get real excited about something for a while, and then I fall down, and don't want to get back up again.

    I'm proud of you for getting back up, dusting yourself off, and taking off in the direction of health again!

    I'm going to check in on you in about another week, if that's OK?

    Kudos to you for starting over. There's no limit to do-overs - it's just an opportunity to get back on track, right? And you've done the first step, logging in, posting this in your blog. You did good!
    Go for the easy wins - at my work they call it "low hanging fruit" of many 'bs Bingo' corporate phrases, bs meaning bull poop, lol! Aaaaanyway, like I mentioned, go for the easy stuff, read an article on SP, drink your 8 glasses of water, accomplish a couple of things on your sparkpoints list. Once you get a little bit of momentum, it'll be easier to conquer that internal guilt. And don't feel bad about any of it. Guilt is natural, just a phase - it's just the opposite of motivation. Just use your guilt and motivation when you need to, to keep everything in balance. You need those down days as much as you need active days where you accomplish the highest of goals. You can do it. You've already done some, so - 'golf clap' (I'm politely clapping for ya, lol)!

    Know what, I hate getting sick, but one thing I really look forward to is how loose my pants are when I finally get out of my pajamas and wear some real clothes! Heh-heh...

    Stay on target...(or as they say at my work "stay the course" another bull poop Bingo phrase!

    Welcome back, and don't worry - many of us 'disappear' from time to time, especially at the start! I certainly disappeared for a few months, then reappeared on the radar when I realised I wasn't making progress... whenever you need encouragement, just ask. That's what we're here for!
