Commitment

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Yesterday I stumbled back onto my Spark page that I started in 2009 and quickly forgot about. In 2009 I had just turned 40 and I was looking for a jumpstart to work on my health so that I could avoid some of the pitfalls I saw my mom fall into once she hit her forties. However, as usual for me I quickly moved on to focusing on something else, anything else except myself.

So here I am today, three plus years later. No changes made in my lifestyle, except that I have grown larger, become more lazy and not a great role model for my daughter.

My first and most important goal is Commitment. I am committed to everything else, my marriage, my job and my daughter. But now with some baby steps I am going to be committed to ME! First step, logging onto this site everyday till the new year (which is only four days away). Typically I drop by day two. Once I reach that goal I will expand that one and add another.

Scott, my husband, always tells me One day at a time, just stay in the day. But that is sooo very hard. I get so overwhelmed by the big picture and fear I will mess something up that I typically just give up. The easy way out. So, here I go...

My accountability will be this page. Either I will or I wont but it will be on record either way. My reward....coming back to this page tomorrow and saying Good Job girl, one day down!!!

    Glad you are back! I think it's pretty rare that we "make it" the first time we try. I yo-yo'd for decades before I got serious, so I hope 2013 is the year of YOU!

    I can totally relate! I think the last time i was on mine was 2010, and I had to create a new account because i couldn't remember any of my passwords!! I started back last week hoping to get the motivation I need!

Good luck to you emoticon
