Are You Serious??????

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I have a good 14 minute walk to work from the Marc train everyday. This morning disgusted with myself and my choice, I gave myself a firm talking to.....
"You know better then to allow yourself to keep traveling down this road. You have control over your choices and do not have to allow yourself to keep eating like your have not type of self control. The more excuses your give yourself for not exercising, I can give you 50 thousands way that you can..... " you get the picture. So I give myself the business all the way to work. Well I have learned that once you declare something, the universe will conspire to test where you are. So I arrive at my building, swing open the door to the lobby and guess what's sitting right smack in front of me????????

Freaking donuts and coffee, DUNKIN DONUTS and DUNKIN DONUTS COFFEE!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

This has NEVER happened in the year that I have worked here. So the nice gentleman says, "Do you mind taking a quick survey?" I take the quick survey, gave him my information to win an ipad mini and proceed past the emoticon !! It felt great that the universe gave me my first test IMMEDIATELY after my affirmations to get my butt in gear.

It's the baby steps that adds up to progress!! I know I can do this. I only need to lose 25- 30 lbs! People are doing this all around me, consistently. I can do it too!! It's all about how bad do I want it? When will I FINALLY make up my mind and REALLY get this done? It's been 4 years now. Does it really take 4 years to lose the same 25 - 30 lbs I wanted to lose since 2009?? Really?? Does it take this long?? The answer is in me.

I REALLY do want to do this. I am going to do it! It's time to get it done. Keep hanging in there with me SP Fam. I know it's taking me a while, but I will succeed!!!


P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my 1st born... my daughter.. my ladybug... she turned 19 today. Wow times flies. She's trying to find her way in life, I have full confidence that she will be successful in whatever she decides to do. God will see her through. Thank you God for everything.

Congratulations on not giving in to the temptation! Doughnuts are my weakness, so I'm super impressed that you stayed strong!

    oooo you're good passing by the donuts possibly but DD coffee no way. I have a cup every day! Awesome job and I hope you win that ipad mini for being good!!! Happy Birthday to your first born. I say everyday God take my daughter on the path you choose for her and 21 years he has done that. You should be very proud and trust that He will lead her. Keep that self talk going sometimes its all we have to keep us going.

    Yeah!! That's a great victory! I'm not really a donuts fan but I doubt I could have passed on the Dunkin Donuts! Isn't it crazy how hard we make it on ourselves? We can do it, and we will do it, and we will push each other! Hope your day is full of more victories today. And Happy Birthday to your daughter, too!

    Keep pushin...FORWARD toward your goals.

WE (ourselves) are often the biggest obstacle to reaching goals.
There is always someone or something to blame...but in the end we are the captain of our own ships. WE have the final say so.

It ain't easy...NO IT IS NOT but it is worth it. One of my most empowering mottos.

I take it day day day... SOMETIMES minute by minute.
THAT is a motto I LOVE MYSELF by.

I stopped looking at it as a job. I started looking at this as something I DESERVE and am worthy of.

I am removing the vanity of it all and replacing it with: QUALITY OF LIFE, GOOD HEALTH, longevity of life. I VALUE those things more than vanity (simply looking better or good)

I don't strive for perfection...I work on PROGRESS.

Those are all wordings that I changed and have helped me. I hope they give you a boost today too.

KEEP PUSHING. I am right there with you trying to do all the same things.

    Girl, I've got your back! I'm fighting the same sugary sweet demons! But we've got this. We're gonna get a hold of this thing and make it happen. Not gonna think about how much time has passed because that doesn't even matter now. What matters are the choices we make from this point forward. We can and WILL do this! Keep Sparkin!

    Damn those FREAKIN donuts! emoticon I recently had a similar conversation with myself and realized it's time out for losing control like I'm 5 years old. Grown ass women take care of themselves and don't make excuses or cave at the sight of a piece of cake. I have been lazy and taking the easy way out. It STOPS TODAY!! Use the anger to motivate you towards your goals. Let this be the year you reach your goal and lose those 25-30lbs you want!!
