Day 6 Challenge Blog-Do you need motivation or advice? Just ask for it!
Thursday, March 07, 2013
I think we all need motivation or advice from time to time. It is hard to change your life and without advice or motivation your lost! To me all of the blogs and support by teammates has been so extremely motivating. Sharing with each other our goals and what is working or not working gives us an upper hand to people who don't have the kind of support that we have here on sparks! I know myself I am much better at giving advice then taking it normally but not here. I learn so much everyday by what others are doing. I am never afraid to ask for help or advice here because we are all going through similar struggles as we are getting ourselves healthy and everyone is so wonderful to share.
I am a great self motivator and for me that is a plus. I know others struggle with this so I try to give all I can to others for all I receive here I feel like it is my way to pay it forward.
This week has been a difficult week for me with us being broke down. I had a very great plan in place and it got totally wiped away. I am a control freak and this has pushed my patience to say the least. Instead of getting frustrated and just throwing in the towel, I have tried to do my best with what I have had around me. Don't know how good that will play out on the scale Saturday but I am hopeful.
I don't like that I haven't been able to get in the exercise that I would like to, but I have tried to do something each day. Food choices have been limited but I have managed to still get in my freggies and tried to make the healthiest choices of the options available.
Without this challenge I may have given up but the accountability to my teammates has made me push harder to do something and has really kept me motivated.
I thank all of you for your support and friendship it means so much to me!
Today is going to be a harder day for me. Our truck will be ready so hopeful to be rolling somewhere by this afternoon. Unfortunately I woke up this morning with my back out. To many days on to soft of a bed. Thankfully I always keep meds with me for it just in case but hate to take them. They make me foggy feeling and not very stable on my feet. There will be no exercise for me today and that bothers me but I know you can't do what you can't do.
I will make healthy choices otherwise and pray tomorrow it is back to normal.
