A year from now.....Week 3

Monday, December 17, 2012


Here is a great motivational quote I found right here on SP:

"A year from now, you'll wish you had started today."

Can you relate? I know I can! When I want a Blizzard from DQ or some other yummy treat, my go-to mantra is "I'll get back on track tomorrow." So after 12 years of "tomorrows" here I am, starting again. Next year at this time, I want to be a good distance along the road to better health, not starting another "tomorrow."

This is my third week with Spark People, and I've lost four pounds. I'm not sure how that happened because living my goals has been a roller coaster ride so far. I'm still not getting into a regular exercise routine other than stretching, and I'm still going through periods of craving sweets and caving to the cravings.

I've been working my way through the SP article "Mind over Body" in the SparkDiet Resource Center. The item about putting the "I" back into my vocabulary made me aware of the unhelpful self talk I give myself, and how a different type of self talk can help me change my thoughts and actions toward meeting my goals.

So this week I will be working on putting "I" back into my self talk. If you are doing the same, let me know how you do and any tips you have to share.

Have a great week!
