I've been complacent too long!
I've been procrastinating!
I've been hovering between the 45 and 50 mark for weeks, and I need to move forward. And so I have two great challenges in the works here on SparkPeople . . . The Biggest Loser Challenge . . . Rockin' it with the Red Team again, and the Springing to Action Challenge, which I've joined in Week 3.
The timing is perfect, as Springing to Actions' challenge this week was to create a vision board . . . a collage of what I want to accomplish during the spring, and where I want to be when summer approaches.
Here is my board. It is separated into three sections . . . what I've got, what I need and what I want.
What I've got is easy. I have family and friends. I have a crafty life . . . which I crave. I have music and entertainment, and if there is one thing that I've conquered since last May when I started this journey, it is WATER! I've got the water thing down.
Needs and wants are tough. It is hard to discern between the two. I did the best that I could to outline that I need to eat healthier and make better choices. First and foremost, I need to feel stronger. I need to exercise and build muscle, no matter how difficult I find that process to be . . . I need to get into the kitchen and make some creative dishes.
What I want . . . a chance! I want to be that person that craves exercise. I have never been that person. I want peace. I will never have peace until I conquer my battles with my health and weight.
These two challenges could not come at a better time. I am at a point where I need to move forward, and my habits are beginning to move backward.
It stops here!
Enough is enough.
