It is time to revamp my goals. I have lost the spark a bit these last few weeks, and although I haven't gained, I haven't lost either, and there is a reason, I have slacked on fit mins and on food tracking and on water consumption. Wow, that is a lot of slacking! So it is time to pump it up. I've had half my water today, started the day of with 25 fit mins and have tracked everything I've eaten today. So for today, I'm doing better than I have in a couple of weeks. It is truly apalling how easy it is to quite for a day, which turns into a few day, then a week, and before you know it nearly a month can go by and I've lost my motivation and my spark.
I need to fix my bike tire, this is huge for me. I know it's a quick easy fix, but I've been putting it off for over a month. When I have my bike, it is easy to get a good 30 minute ride which always makes me feel so much better. I also need to get back into my ST routine. I was feeling much better when I was getting steady ST in.
I've realized that I not only want to feel better/stronger, but I also really do want to look better. I know that may sound funny, but my looks have never been a big motivating factor in my desire to loose weight. But recently I've realized, I truly do want to look healthier. And that can only happen if I put my health as a priority, everyday, throughout the day. I have a terrible tendency when things are stressful, to put anything and everything as priority over my health. I always think in the back of my mind, " I have time later, tomorrow, next week, etc." Well this thinking is what got me through my first year on SP without any real wieght loss, and if I don't change this thinking, I will be working on my second year with no substantial weight loss. This is not what I want. I really want to be serious, without killing myself in the process. Balance in this area is so incredibly hard for me. I know I'm not alone in this, but I also know that there are many people who have had great success with SP and I want to be one of those people!!!!
I think I am going to pick up the Spark book and work my way through from the begining again. I think that is what I really need right now. With a clear goal in my mind, at all times, it is easier to get done what I need to do.
Well, my pep talk is over for today. It is time to truly focus on what I want and make it happen, no distractions, no excuses, just focus, focus, focus!!!
Keep on sparking, your spark is what makes me know there is light at the end of this tunnel for me!!!
