Gosh. I started Spark last January. Now it's THIS January. Two questions to myself -
Did I hit my goal weight? No.
Did I learn important lessons along the way? Yes.
I guess I could chalk last year up to my pre-Spark year. My practice session, if you will. I don't want to though. I know what I did right, and what I did wrong. I just need to do more of the right stuff this year!
This blog is a commitment to myself to get healthy!!!!! At some point I got focused just on the scale, and that was really when I lost my overall focus on healthy habits.
I was close to my goal weight this last July. It wasn't hard work, it was fun getting there! But once my goal date came and went the weight all crept back on. Travel, stress... I just lost sight of all the good work I was doing.
So, here goes today and here comes tomorrow. I have reminded myself what my overall reasons are for wanting to loose. Sure, I want my pants to fit better and to not dread seeing a photo of myself. But I want to feel healthy and fit and good on the inside and outside. I don't want to let life pass my by because I can't catch my breath.
Cheers to everyone starting fresh, where ever you are on your journey!
