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!
