I Want My Body Back

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I want my body back, I REALLY do. I have been a Sparkler now for 1 year as a very passive participant. I have made great friends and learned some great ideas, exercises and recipes. But, having competed in sports before, I know that you are not a winner until you Truly feel the desire to win. Last week as I was working out I actually screamed at the top of my lungs: I WANT MY BODY BACK! At least I was alone and no one thought I was crazy. But, I could feel a transition, a challenge, a spiritual journey. I desired to win! It felt wonderful to recognize and experience that feeling again. I took the opportunity to jot it on paper, mapping the journey to lock in more commitment. I try to create that feeling before I get out of the bed in the morning, reminding myself what I will choose to do that day to commit to that desire. I remind myself all the reasons that I want that athletic leaner body:
For God- He gave me a perfect temple and I have not kept it up
For Family- be healthy and active together for a long time
For Health- lower cholesterol and blood pressure, nourish naturally
For My Job- I can contribute more when I feel my best
For Fun- enjoy all the outdoor activities, sports and yoga that I LOVE
For Style- feel comfortable and enjoy clothes again
For Others- be an example of what is possible
Most of all For MYSELF so that I feel like I am on my true journey of life not encumbered by weight, fatigue and other limiting factors.
