Are we there yet?
Are we there yet??
ARE WE THERE YET???????
So many detours in lifeÖ but if we are blessed to live long and prosper.
Öweíre more apt to complete many of those journeys we set out on before that final slide into ďHomeĒ plate.
Iíve 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 donít 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. Itís how I roll. And thatís why I know I wonít gain back the 70+ pounds Iíve lost.
Am I done? Far from itÖ Iíll probably never be done because thereís always more weight to lose, more minutes to log and many, many more dreams to dream with my dear sweet husband.
In the mean timeÖ Am I there yet? Yes, I am. Iím living in the now and appreciating how far Iíve 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 wasnít too late for meÖ. 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
