Recognizing Weakness to Build Strength

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Recognizing weakness is necessary in becoming stronger.
I've realized that stress, boredom, seeing someone else eating a trigger food, etc can lead me to the fridge and cupboard.

Another realization is that I am not the strongest of finishers in general. I always shoot out of the gate sprinting in my healthy life endeavors, but lose motivation mid race, and end up dropping out of the race entirely.

At this point, I am realizing that walking, even at a snail's pace across the finish line is better than not finishing at all. The race is not for the swift. What matters is that I am in the race and that I am trying.

So how do I move forward? It comes back to the inspiring body pledge of allegiance that I posted in my previous blog. I promise myself that I will stay in the race, no matter what. I will not berate myself for my current struggle with sprinting. Instead I will celebrate the fact that I am walking, at least. I will appreciate my journey.

IHave a healthful day sparkworld,

    hmm I've come that same realization about myself. But thats OK, who cares if we crawl across the finish line, as long as we get there. And here's the thing, we have been working on this healthy lifestyle consistently in 2013 and that's something. I mean, we have at least 4 months of healthy behind us. And I want you to know, I'm really really proud of you. You are such an inspiration to me, my friend!
