Renewing my commitment to myself

Sunday, June 10, 2012

When I first started on SparkPeople, I started off pretty strong. I read all the tutorials, joined some teams, started eating healthier, went walking in the evenings, etc. I've bought myself a food scale, bought the 28 day boot camp dvd, etc. The last thing I purchased that was related to SparkPeople was the book, The Spark. As I started reading it, I thought, hey I saw all this on the website. But I was wrong. Some of the things mentioned are on the website but most certainly not all of it. I have now read the entire book and I loved it.

I have made quite a few friends since joining this site. I appreciate each and every one of them too. Life is always a little bit easier when you have people cheering you on. I have found that I thoroughly enjoy cheering on my friends (old and new) and that it gives you a good feeling to know that you've helped someone somehow.

Well today, one of my friends helped me. As I read the posted blog, I felt awed that I was mentioned. And it made me realize that I was not going as strong as I had started. Tomorrow is a new day and a new start. I am not starting over just starting small again. I will incorporate the fast break goals, different ones this time, and I will WRITE it all out this time too. I'm not always able to be on the computer so I will be carrying around a little notebook to help keep me on track. I will WRITE out my goals, so that I can SEE them everyday and remind myself of where I want to be. And I will call my friend, to thank her and to see when she wants to go walking.
