Working for My Miracle

Thursday, August 30, 2012


How many of us are so afraid of the unknown that we get lost and shy away from reaching for our dreams?! So many times in my life I have seen things happen to others and thought - wow that's so cool and great, I wish I could do something like that. Well WE CAN!! It's ok to admire and be inspired by others, but what's even better is to BELIEVE that you too can achieve as much success!

I've been feeling a bit frustrated with my stalled progress. At the end of June I had reached my 30lbs weight loss mark - only to see 10lbs come right back on and now I'm seeing that same yo-yo'ing I had happening when I was stuck on a 3 year plateau and I'm fearful of being 'stuck' again. But I have to shake that fear off and simply PUSH harder to move beyond it again.

I was approached to try SparkCoach and I have to say - it's really great and available to all members for a free 2 week trial. If you you haven't checked it out I recommend you do! I figure part of my ongoing success so far along into my 6 year journey here is the accountability and support I have received from the community. Now with Spark Coach, it's like having a more direct link with the experts at SP and it seems to make the site come to life more!

A new month is around the corner and I'm looking to set new goals (as I do every month). The summer months were not so great on my health journey as I indulged in the summer mode, but it's back to school for the kids - and for ME with respect to getting back to basics of becoming healthier!

Setting up some small goals again - focusing on losing 5lbs at a time - so first intent it to get back to 150Ville and stay there. I celebrate my 46th birthday on Monday and my goal is to never see 160Ville again going forward.

When one wants a miracle - sometimes you have to work for it a bit - but I know it's well worth the hard work! So tell me SP Friends - are YOU working for YOUR miracle too?!

    Small goals are the best kind. They are reachable and easy to track. You are on your way!

    It's so true how fear can be an obstacle to success. We all have setbacks, but will persevere. I am using Spark Coach and finding it a great inspiration. A lot of the tasks and visions are really helpful. I also got some great advice from one of the coaches on how to kick up the weights on my weight training without causing injury.

The important thing is to forgive yourself and move forward. I'm in 160Ville and hope to be in 150Ville by no later than mid-November. I'm working hard at this, fighting my self-sabotaging ways as much as possible, and find that planning everything is working out really well for me.

I wish you luck as you continue your journey. We're all here cheering you on....and Happy Birthday on Monday!!!!!
