Day 61 - No Excuses

Friday, August 10, 2012

I have been active for 60 days. That's 2 months! I still can't believe that I stuck with it that long! Now if I could just get my eating under control!

I copied this from a friends blog and thought I'd share it with all my Sparfriends!

“Imagine that you won this prize in a contest…

Each morning the bank will deposit $86,400 into your private account for your own personal use. However, this prize comes with rules.

The rules are:
* You must spend the money each day.
* Everything that you don’t spend in that day will be taken away from you.
* You cannot simply transfer the money to another account.
* You cannot give the money away and it can't be used by anyone else.
* Every morning, upon waking up, the bank credits your account with another $86,400 to be used that day.
The bank can cancel your account and stop depositing at any time without warning.

When the game is over, IT IS OVER!!

What would you personally do?
I guess, that you would buy anything and everything that you wanted, right. Not only for yourself, but for everyone you know and love. You couldn’t spend it all on yourself, and you would try to spend as much as possible every day, wouldn’t you?

Actually, this game is reality and you are already playing! The only difference is that you don't receive money.

The magical bank is the BANK OF TIME and you already receive this gift every morning.

Every morning, we receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, to spend that day and anything left over is lost.

Whatever we haven’t lived today is lost forever.

Every morning, the bank of time is replenished, but we never know when it will end – without warning!!

So – what are you doing with your time – and you really getting the maximum value from the time you have – are you really living your life to the full??

What do you plan to do with the 86,400 seconds that you will be given when you wake up tomorrow. If it was your last day, what would you plan to do??

Enjoy every second of your life, cause time races by so much quicker than you think.

Is it really worth wasting it in meanness, unhappiness, jealousy, disagreements, and all those other negative emotions that suck the life out of us?

Take care of yourself, spread happiness and love to those around you and enjoy your life.”

Have a great Friday!

    You know, first step to anything is plain and simple just showing up. And you have been showing up for 60 days!

    Now, keep showing up and keep adding baby steps to that. You'll get to where you want to be.

    This is SO TRUE!

    We always act like we've got unlimited time on the planet. "One day I'll get that college degree." "One day I'll get my weight under control."

    Seconds turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into years....the time to go after our dreams is NOW!

    I first got on Spark in 2009 and I am DISGUSTED that I haven't been at goal at any point during the last three years. I had 40 pounds to lose then, lost about 22, and gained everything back. Now I am doing it for the second time. BUT AS GOD IS MY WITNESS, I'm going to do it this time!

    Oops, this is your blog, not mine! Congrats on SIXTY days of exercising consistently. That is an awesome streak. Have a great weekend, girl!
