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. emoticon

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! emoticon emoticon

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. emoticon

Hormones? Gotta be! Ugh. Really need to get those puppies in balance. I feel like a lunatic. emoticon 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. emoticon 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!

    Aww, Mom, I don't want you to cry. It's gotta be your hormones being out of wack, because that's SO not like you. You're doing SO great! I wish I could get my healthy habits back in check as well as you have. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wish I could nominate you again, as a motivational member seems like we deal with the same issues.
At the same time lower our Blood Pressure and Cholesterol numbers, as well as the scale. To move downward. The Olympic challenge was a great Idea so far I have walked 50 miles combining the tread mill bike and walking out side. Thankfully have passed the Hormone issue a few years ago. Sure know how you feel. Its great you have family that is supportive so many time that is the case. We can do this one-day at a time.
Better late than never getting a note posted on you blog . Need to re subscribe. done have a good Spark week

    Emotions can make or break your day! Try some uplifting music when you are down or meditation. Exercise when you are in a low mood helps too.

You are doing great! You are recognising changes! That is all positive! emoticon
