I Need a Good Pep Talk Today

Friday, December 07, 2012

Ok, this picture does not have anything to do with my blog except to remind me that winter will pass and spring will come again. It happens every year and this year is no exception. Even with all the doom and gloom talk on TV of the end of the Mayan calendar and falling off the fiscal cliff, I really need to remind myself that this is not reality. What is reality?

1. I have lost 22.5 pounds since July
2. I get on the average of 1 hour of exercise per day
3. I have enough money to buy food, a place to live, and people who love me
4. I can always find lots of encouragement and inspiration here on Spark
5. I have lost many inches from my body this year
6. I am able to run 5 miles without stopping
7. I am eating healthier than I ever have in my whole life
8. I am able to lift my 8 pound dumb bells with out hurting myself
9. I am continuing my healthy living journey because I do not want to be sick in my old age
10. I am sleeping better than I have in many years
11. I am worth it!! I am doing it!! and I am succeeding!!!!!!!

    I can really relate to reminding yourself that winter is only temporary. I have problems with winter ~ so I take Vitamin D and even have a SAD lamp. This winter has been wonderful for us, however. There is NO snow here, at all. emoticon It's been really nice, too. The dark bothers me almost as much as the snow and ice, however, "this too will pass." emoticon emoticon emoticon

You never cease to amaze me, Joann, you are really inspiring. emoticon We agree that we have a lot in common BUT when it comes to this program, I get tired even reading about all the things you do. LOL 1 hour of exercise every day emoticon 5 miles at a time emoticon 8 lb weights emoticon

I love the way that you take care of yourself ~ you are 100% correct when you say "I am worth it." You bet you are ~ and that's why you are a winner!!
