Are we there yet?
Are we there yet??
ARE WE THERE YET???????
So many detours in life… but if we are blessed to live long and prosper.
…we’re more apt to complete many of those journeys we set out on before that final slide into “Home” plate.
I’ve been Sparking for more than 2 years now and my healthy journey has finally become more of a habit and less of an effort. I still log in daily and use the nutrition tracker. I do have to push myself to exercise but I don’t think twice about drinking 10-15 glasses of water or to eat 5-9 freggies a day. Protein is a no-brainer and sweets are a treat NOT a food group any more. Healthy eating has become a lifestyle. It’s how I roll. And that’s why I know I won’t gain back the 70+ pounds I’ve lost.
Am I done? Far from it… I’ll probably never be done because there’s always more weight to lose, more minutes to log and many, many more dreams to dream with my dear sweet husband.
In the mean time… Am I there yet? Yes, I am. I’m living in the now and appreciating how far I’ve come. Knowing my limitations and honoring my body by being gentle with myself so I can do more each day. I have learned to love myself just the way I am and appreciate the fact that it wasn’t too late for me…. thank God!
The summer of 2012 is quickly sizzling away... July is over. There's only five months left in this year. My hope is that each one of you embrace your life, count your blessings and regardless of the difficulty you face in any moment, please remember you always have the opportunity to change and direct your choices into greater blessings. Life is so good. Enjoy. YOU deserve it
