It is my new years challenge to start blogging more on a consistent basis. I have been journaling all along so far during my journey but I am wanting to stretch my comfort zone and start opening up more with my spark friends and start sharing in my journey with those that can understand my challenges and frustrations and the joy that I experience in this journey.
Some things that I am starting in the new year is to reward myself with smaller victories I am going to start giving myself a reward for every 5 lbs lost this is going to help me to stay motivated and I feel like that is one of the most important things during this journey is to learn ways to keep myself motivated.
For today I am feeling good and proud of myself. I got up this morning and I have been getting over a cold so I was not wanting to do my morning aerobic exercise DVD. My mind was listing excuse after excuse to not work out and I told myself I would start the DVD and see how much I could get threw and half way threw my mind started in again making excuses again to stop and I told myself lets just do alittle more and before I knew it the DVD was at the end and I made it threw the whole thing. It made me feel good to stick threw with what I was doing and not giving in to the self talk. Now my next hurtle to pass is to fight off the inner talk wanting a snack of chips or something of the like that has been fighting me so hard. When I am tempted I need to stop and tell my "little fussing child"in my head that I do not need that and we are going to stick with the plan that I have already set up for the day.
Well that is all that I have for today
I hope that everybody has a wonderful day
