I need a new plan.....

Sunday, February 20, 2011

About this time last year, as I was turning another year older (my birthday is in February)I swore to myself that no matter what, I would have this weight off by my birthday, 2011. Well, needless to say, not only did I NOT get the weight off, but I actually put on 10 more pounds. I spent about a week or so wallowing in my own pity, but after reading some wonderful blogs of other "sparkers," I have decided that I just need a new plan. My problem from the beginning (well, since I started having children 20 years ago) has always been that I always put everyone else first. I don't think that this is all that unusual for most mothers, and it is not necessarily a bad thing to put your family first. However, I seem to have gotten into a rut that I just cannot get out of. My work requires that I put in a lot of time there, and my family of five, plus two dogs and a guinea pig also require a tremendous amount of time. It really is tough to get any time in for me. I usually try really hard for about a week, and am not able to do it, so I give us. Anyway, enough complaining, right? I just need to figure this out, and get back on the wagon. Today is February 20, we go!

    Sometimes it is necessary to re-start more than once but I believe that we can learn something each time that will help us to finally achieve our goals. We are not failures as long as we do not quit. emoticon

    Wow! You're the reason SP sparkles! THANKS! You could be writing my own story... Feb. B'day too & I got lost in my own schedule (again). Much thanks for encouraging me to just make a new plan & adjust as necessary. I gotta remember:
Yard by Yard, Life is Hard
Inch by Inch, Life's a Cinch.
emoticon Happy Birthday!
Spark On!
