Pep Talk

Monday, April 22, 2013

My assignment today from Spark Coach was to give myself a pep talk. Good timing, as when I was at the Dr. today the scale registered up a pound.

Although I wasn't so happy about that, I kind of laughed to myself and figured it was a good time to complete that assignment. So here it goes...

So, what's a pound... It is the weight of two thirds of my regular water cup. It is 2 8 oz yogurts, or a can of beans. It really isn't significant, earth shaking, or shattering... it is something that could be as simple as the difference of the shoes I was wearing, or the food I consumed before the appointment this time versus last time.

Why am I getting all stressed over a pound anyways... That pound doesn't define me. That number on the scale is not who I am. I am a happy and confident woman with a ton of blessings in my life. I have made incredible strides in my quest to become healthy... I am eating right, I have incorporated exercise into my life, I take time to focus on the positives of my life... that is why this pound really isn't such a big deal. It is a little teeny tiny bump on a long road of successes that I have had in this health journey I am on. Who knows, by tomorrow the scale could be showing it gone.

See, I've realized something while I have been on this journey. It really isn't about weight. Weight is just a symptom of a deeper issue, and SP has given me the tools to deal with the issue, not just to temporarily take care of a symptom. I have come so far since I've started, and I am going to just keep on keeping on this journey. Living this life is too good to quit over something so little! It's been a great journey so far, and it's just getting better and better.

It's a good time to reevaluate, to step back and see the whole picture. It also is a good motivator to jump back into the game a little harder the rest of this week, kind of an "I'll show you" tude, lol! I can do this, in fact, I AM doing this! A wonderful life is happening all around me, and I am blessed to be a part of it! Life is good, and it's getting "gooder" as I go along, lol.

I don't know about you, but I am stepping out into a good and productive week, can we just say it's going to be AWESOME! How can it not be, I've got the blessing of life; and lot's of love flowing through it. Love from my little dog, my spark friends, my friends, my kids, my guy... I could go on but that might be a little long...

I hope you are able to spend some time today looking at the bright side!!! Life really is good!
