I could really go on with that title but don't really have the time. Doing the dailies in SparkCoach today boosted my moral a lot! I even woke up with a new determination this morning. Answer to prayer!!!
I have been "stuck in the muck" for so long I have forgotten how good it feels to make positive, life changing decisions! Participating in SparkCoach is probably the best thing I can do for myself right now. I love that the drive home the fact that it is all in making changes, not monumental changes, small ones, one at a time. Nothing earth shattering, but make changes and make them positive changes that will only encourage you to do more, make more changes, make better decisions for your own life. It is all about taking charge!
I can't help be here the Lord saying, submit yourself and I will direct your path! So, I am submitting!I just received an e-mail from CBN asking the question can prayer help with weight loss? My answer is a resounding YES!!! It can and it does! Again... trust in the Lord, lean not unto your own understanding but in all your ways by prayer and suplication let your requests be made known... (I hope I have that right - will have to check) and most of all GIVE THANKS, to the God who created you! and I DO!!! HE IS AN AWESOME GOD!
STEPS I AM TAKING:
Journaling: this has become something of a regular thing for me. I have two... my everyday of my life journal, and my weighloss journal. I created that one in excel... one page is my journal, another is my weight loss log with goals, another is my charts created from my log showing the weight loss line on the downward swing... which is what you want to see!!! RIGHT!
Creating visual motivations - this is huge for me. I have also made the decision that I don't care who sees it! I used be so self-conscious under the guise of "it's nobody's business but mine" which is me just kidding myself. Owning up.. whoa... didn't think I would get there this quickly. I have the board, now it is just collecting my motivations and posting them. I have a small one started on my fridge, it is put together like one of those quilts that have no rhyme or reason to each piece, just fit them together... a crazy quilt... that is what it is called. My current motivation board is a crazy quilt on my fridge.
I will have to take a picture and post it as is... I can't get over just how freeing it is personally to move past some of those hindrances we seem to set for ourselves.
Sharing... it is all about sharing a piece of yourself to help motivate others... you have to give back and not just take all the time. I know this but never equated it with losing weight... funny how bad memories from the past can derail your postive output huh? I think I am seeing everything in an entirely different light. I am just amazed at how good SparkCoach has influenced me in just two days! Hope that is an inspiration to someone!
Looking forward to tomorrow...
