I had a pretty un-sparky week this week. I didn't track everything and managed to give myself excuses to stay out of the gym or do anything at home. I know I ate more than I should have, and made a couple of (a few?) poor choices. ( On the upside, I did drink my water.) I stayed on the perimeter of Spark People - mostly because I knew (know) that it would make me think about my decisions and choices. But finally yesterday I did update my status lamenting (whining - you just couldn't hear it) about my week. That's all it took. A couple of my spark friends responded with comments, encouraging me and reassuring me.
So, this morning I planned to get to the gym for a workout and Zumba. I was going to do it... my Spark Friends had encouraged me.
But then the little talks/arguments inside my head started happening. They sound like... "But I have so much laundry. I need to go to the store. When am I ever going to get to Target? I really should clean the bathrooms before I leave the house." Do you have them? I've got myself almost excused from my plans - really I just wanted to be lazy. I sit down at my laptop almost convinced I'm just staying home when I get a Spark People email. From a Spark Friend. She sent me a Goodie with some encouragement. Now, SHE is in my head shushing (is that a word?) the other little voices into quiet submission. My Spark Friends believe in me and will be proud of me I tell myself...
So, I close the laptop and head to the gym.
You are invited to be in my head encouraging me along all the time and you are welcome to have me in yours.
