Happy Friday Sparkers!!!
I realized yesterday that for so long I thought this Journey was about celebrating the moments I ONLY Lose weight. I realize that often times when problems arise on the journey & I start converting back to old eating habits or emotional eating; this is the time where the Journey TRULY TESTS me. This is the time where I make excuses for my over eating or emotional/stress eating. Then I fall off the wagon completely.
I realize that I am always STARTING OVER!! I can't count how many times I have said "I will just start over tomorrow or Monday." What if there are NO MORE Tomorrows to say "I will start Over!!" I should celebrate NOT GIVING UP but for continuously trying.
This isn't a easy journey but I want to look forward to the day I actually FINISH What I START!! This doesn't mean I will have some stumbling blocks along the way b/c I realized I am NOT PERFECT!! I am Human & I will no longer beat myself up if I only lose 0.5 ounces but instead I will CELEBRATE every MINOR, SMALL, & TINY Accomplishments along the path!! I am worth this journey & I will keep on going even when the scale does NOT budge or even if the scale slightly goes up.
I am going to be more kinder to myself & look at the gym as doing something GOOD FOR ME!!! Working out is something Good for my Body. So I will not look at going to the gym as a NEGATIVE but as "Spa Workout" for my Body. Yeah, I said "Spa Workout" b/c this Journey is all about ATTITUDE, so if I say going to the gym is "Spa Treatment for these Abs, Legs, & Arms" then maybe you will start to feel good about working out!! Turn Negative into Positive thoughts!
