Moving forward on my Winter Olympic challenge, this past week has been a mix of progress and setbacks. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat.
Progress being, I made a commitment to eating REALLY well and cutting my portions.
Feeling healthier and I know that this was the right move to make.
Workouts have been good and yard work is kicking in so I feel great about that!
Working with a Spark buddy to lower our Blood Pressure and Cholesterol numbers, as well as the scale.
SO if that is my progress, what setbacks could I have? I've got the eating part down! I even have the workouts moving it!
Mentally, I just am not thinking right. I am a super positive, person yet I have been filled with thoughts that usually do not dare enter my head. I have even been so emotional, that tears have streamed down. What in the world? Totally not my style.
Hormones? Gotta be! Ugh. Really need to get those puppies in balance. I feel like a lunatic.
This can't be good for real progress.
I am a bit overwhelmed with a few things going on, but I have been through much worse. Surely I will deal with this stuff, too!?
So a new ballgame, at 55. New challenges, to figure out. Perhaps if I look at it like a game?
A personal Survivor season.
Yes, that's it. I plan to WIN IT!
So I will focus on this part of my vision board, this week.....
Family... I will draw the support of my family and in turn, give them my support.
Through thick and thin.... They are there through good times and bad, through big waists and small, through it all.
This goes for my dear Spark friends, as well. Always there for me when I need support and I hope you feel that I am there for you, too.
Believe it. Yes, I DO believe in the positive, the ability to overcome, to acheive, to reach my goal, to be healthy, to take charge of my numbers! I do BELIEVE that I WILL SUCCEED!
I Will keep smiling! I am telling those tears, where to go, or at least turn them into tears of joy!
The weights symbolize strength. I have that, too! And when I don't I will look to God, family and Spark friends to share theirs.
Be well. This means physically, spiritually and yes...mentally.
I WILL BE STRONG and this is going to be a GREAT week!
