I guess it's about time I came back here and blogged. Just to bring you up to date, I eliminated some of the foods that I'm not supposed to eat, added more good ones and then started binging on sugar ( it includes a lot of sins) again. However, I found I could incorporate a certain rye bread successfully because I learned I really do need to eat a lot of fibre to keep this body moving! (And beans don't do it for me!)
In the past, I've had some pet peeves - like when I first started Spark I was doing so well - lost 25 lbs. and hardly got recognized by my favourite team for my efforts. Woe is me! And afterwards I learned this really affected my progress! Eegads! I should have left the team and never returned, but I kept going back - to redeem myself in their eyes? Stupid!
Then, I look at my page and see I have accumulated 90,809 points and scroll down to see that I am still not a Motivator??? Hey, I helped and inspired a lot of people during my 5 or 6 years here, didn't I? But you certainly couldn't tell from that. Woe is me.
Get the picture? So now I have put all that nonsense behind me and who cares if I'll be the longest member of Spark with the highest no. of Spark points who didn't accomplish any recognition - BUT! I will have reached my goal! And those intentions will get me to goal without anymore stupid and insanse side tracks.
You can just go along blaming others/things for your stumbles for so long before you finally take hold of the reins once again.
We all have to get stronger for ourselves. . . . yeah! I don't have any excuses anymore. I'm healthy, with a bit of mobility problems (like I can't run, heaven forbid!) but I can still walk and do everything I have to around the house.
So how has my experience been on Spark? With all the ups and downs, I have learned to have more confidence in myself (even at this late age!) - I know what I have to do - and now I am finally doing it!!!
So come join me! It's a free ride!!
