I have to give a shout-out to the Spark Coach program (and no one's paying me!). It's daily, small, trackable, encouraging and inspiring stuff and for the first time in YEARS of "trying", I'm moving forward. It's pretty great.
First there was that very odd day last week when I had my own permission to sloth it out but discovered that what I wanted to do was go for a walk. ! ! ! ! ! ! Unprecedented.
Now I find myself drinking water because I'm thirsty. I was never thirsty before when I drank zero water. Go figure. I sleep great and my mood is way WAY better, and anyone who battles bluesy days and sleepless nights will know how much of a big deal that is.
So things are going well. I had a couple of lazy, unmotivated days last week and the real miracle is, I didn't use it as Proof that I'm no damn good and might as well quit (what a great excuse that is - feels like humility). I've lost a few pounds, too and even better, I know I'm on my way to getting the rest off.
And now I'm going for a walk!

  It does seem to help when someone is there to motivate and encourage. I'm glad the Sparkcoach is working for you! You sound very positive. We're always going to have those lazy feeling days but your thinking about them and attitude around them sounds different. That is real improvement, regardless if we end up with a lazy day once in a while.
So glad you are in a groove. Try not to get discouraged if you drop your ball once in a while. It happens to all of us. Just pick it back up and keep on moving! emoticon

I really do think consistency is key. I know it's my biggest problem: I make plans, and life gets in the way. Trying to overcome that lately.

So happy that you've found something that works!

p.s. are you still doing Paleo? I've gotten off-track, due to a heavier-than-usual workload and skimpier-than-usual bank account.
