This is a blog to my Spark Friends and Teammates. I remember when Sparkpeople started the goodie system. I wasn't sure what to do at that time! So, I was giving myself Spark Goodies. Then before I knew it, I was starting to receive goodies from others for various reasons. Then, I really understood the true purpose of Spark Goodies.
So, Friends & Teammate, I want you to know that you're really inspiring me in various ways! When I see someone indicating that their making progress, I will be sending them a goodie because I want them to know that they have a cheerleader! When I see a friend or a teammate losing weight, I'm giving them a goodie. When I see a friend or a teammate meeting their fitness goals or any other goals, I'm giving them a goodie! These special people are worth celebrating! No matter how big or small, you deserve a goodie or a huge compliment! I want you to know that you can do it.
Don't allow frustration to creep into your mind because you only lost 0.5 pounds. Keep pushing until that goal is met! When you're moving being active, you're still lapping those individuals who continue make excuses or stay on that couch! When you're taking care of your body through good nutrition, you're still doing better than those who continue to treat their bodies like wastebaskets. When you state that you're making progress, you're a go-getter! So, yes, you deserve a Spark Goodie!
Now, I know that there will be times when things are not going to go the way you or I want it to go, but don't you or I dare to give up! Find your strong and continue to strive for those goals! As Christian D. Larson stated "Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle." I believe in all of you as well as myself! We can do it! So, stop any type of pity party that may try to creep into your mind or heart! If you're having a bad day, do something about it to turn it around! If it gets hard, remember how far you have gotten! You don't have to go fast, you just have to get up and go! We're going to stop saying we going to do it, because we are actually going to do it! We're going to stop the excuses and hang in there until we accomplish all that we want to accomplish this year! Let's do this, because we can do this!
Here's your pep talk from your cheerleader! Again, you're worth celebrating, no matter how big or small the accomplishment!
