Hiding In Plain Sight

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

WE CAN TRY TO CAMOUFLAGE THE TRUTH BUT
WE CAN'T HIDE IT FROM OURSELVES

Even today ... so many of us search for the magic way to lose the weight
and it continues to feel as if it's just out of reach
when the truth is...It Is Hiding In Plain Sight

We have all kinds of technology to help us track the calories,
log our heart rate, see how many steps we take,
estimate how many calories we burn....
and still we can't seem to find the magic trick that will keep us motivated
until we reach our goals.
WHY IS THAT emoticon emoticon
Sometimes it feels like I'm trying to recreate the first time
but the thrill is gone.
You know what to expect
You know how much work it takes to make it happen
You know what it feels like
but the magic has faded....the motivation is gone...on to the next project.

I guess sometimes it's easier to learn something totally new and different,
than learning to fine tune what we already know,
because we hold on to old ideas that don't work any more.
Sometimes we need to see things with new eyes,
new ideas,
Sometimes all we need is a little change and
new ways of looking at what is Hiding In Plain Sight

So to that theme...take a look at this link
Hiding In Plain Sight--Extraordinary Camouflage
{...the picture in front of the shelves amazes me...check for the feet...}

AND JUST REMEMBER
EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN...
JUST GIVE IT TIME

STOP HIDING BEHIND EXCUSES AND EAT YOUR VEGETABLES emoticon

    You understand! This is why I advocate throwing out the dishes and socks when they're dirty and buying lovely new ones, instead of continually washing the ones I have! Oh, wait....

    First of all, those are some amazing photos. Just BANANAS how much work must have gone into them! Not to mention skill. Second of all, this part is SO true: "I guess sometimes it's easier to learn something totally new and different,
than learning to fine tune what we already know." SO TRUE. Thanks for sharing your words of wisdom and motivation once again!

    I loved this! You are right. We are always accountable to ourselves and in the end, it always falls on us. I loved the no excuses and eat your vegetables. Wants me to respond, "Okay Mom!" LOL

  Great blog. Its so true, even when things are seemingly simple they are incredibly difficult. Mostly because we are our own worst enemies. It's hard to break down those walls, but worth it when we do :)

    Great blog! I was considering hiring a personal trainer and decided that I didn't want to spend money on that. I've been trying new-to-me, FREE videos on SparkPeople and getting the challenge that I needed to rejuvenate. Thanks SparkPeople!Your excellent resources were right in front of me, but it took some thinking, planning, and searching on my part to find them.
