Looking back on the past week, I check to see how I did with my goals and following the section of the vision board for the last 7 days.
#1. Family...I made time for them and they made time for me! Splendid, all the way around.
Work, play, listening, sharing, comparing notes and generally supporting each other.
I should have a spot on my board for friends, for they are like my extended family.
I was fortunate enough to spend time with my family of friends, this week and to share ups and downs with my dear Spark friends! Thank you for your support.
#2. Through thick and thin.... Yes, they were all there at the beginning of the week, when I was "thick and still here, at the end, when I am a tad, thinner.
I actually had to look twice, in the mirror, as my face had gotten thinner! Jeans are fitting better, as well.
#3. I needed to get a handle on my BP and I did! It was great, at the dentist's office. Whew!
I know this will be an ongoing thing, but feel that my eating and exercise has been spot on, this past week. A good stretch, of focusing. I have another Spark buddy that is working on lowering her numbers. We are here for each other and Fran holds me accountable.
#4.This leads to being well. Part of my board. I accomplished that, for the past 7 days, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually. Balance has been achieved, if for only the past week. It has been good. This is a stepping stone. A building block. A foundation, shall we say.
#5. Believe it. I DO. I can always pull up from the depths, with belief that things will get better. That I can accomplish what seems to be the impossible. To keep pressing on. To not let a set back stop me in my tracks.
Instead of giving up, I get up!
I don't say if I can, I say how can I?
I replace lukewarmness, with enthusiasm!
Instead of blending in, I want to stand out!
Instead of making excuses, I will be more demanding of myself!
instead of problems, I will see solutions.
I say bring on the challenges, for it is they that make me strong, that make me proud, that give me character, that helps me to be able to help others, by me having gone through them, myself.
So as for the various things to do along the way... I have been drinking my water, eating my fiber, fruits, veggies and other wholesome items.
I have fallen in love with kickboxing, all over again!
I move like an Olympic trainee, with various skating and skiing motions. Always keeping the vision of the Winter Olympics in mind.
My gardening has taken center stage.
This is therapy and a workout, all in one! I also feel closest to God.
So a happy, healthy positive week it has been.
I have done all sections of my board and now it is time to put them all together, for the coming week.
I feel energized. The tears have dried and the grin and twinkly eyes are back. Dimples showing and ready for the week to come.
