Okay, I admit it.
I've made excuses.
I caught a cold and used it as an excuse not to exercise or even go out (I didn't want to make anyone else sick).
It is not getting me closer to my goals.

June is here.
I wrote out the daily goals and posted them - with a checklist.
I'm determined to greet more sunrises this month.
I calculated how many pounds til I am no longer obese and I can get there at one pound a week by the end of the year.
I looked up the half marathon date here, and it is 20 weeks from today.
I ate my oatmeal for breakfast.
I visualized reaching my goals.
I believe I can do it.

I lean on my SparkFriends and their wonderful accomplishments and fantastic attitudes and trust the process.
Focusing on all I will GAIN (in nonscale victories, health and good habits)
instead of what I will LOSE (not freaking myself out by images of deprivation).

Time to get started.
Time to make it happen.

    This reminds me of how I felt last weekend. I found out that a dear, sweet, precious family from our church is moving away. At first, I was only focused on what I was losing. But then, I was able to focus on what they were gaining, what their new community would be gaining, and finally even what I might be gaining in the long run. It took me a day or so, but I was able to see that even when the Lord takes away, He always gives to us even more & better things than we could ever wish for ourselves! So I continue to trust in Him and "praise the Lord who gives & takes away"! (one of my favorite song verses from one of my favorite bands, Casting Crowns!)

    Celebrate the small victories! ôRemember that fitness is more like a marathon than a sprint set small weekly or monthly goals

    May wasn't exactly a shining month for me, either!
Bet we can make June a emoticon one, though!
