There's power in being proactive

Friday, June 14, 2013

Today my SparkCoach mini-goal is to practice being positive about myself. While I've made good progress here, its still way to easy for me to get down on myself.

To avoid this, I'm trying to be proactive. Its working here - I'm not cutting out food treats, but I do think through where I can create wiggle room for them. I've recognized patterns in how my body is dealing with weight loss so that I don't beat myself up when I know the cycle will come around again and a few pounds will come off without me doing anything out of the ordinary. I'm thinking through weather and other scheduling issues to get in workouts as I can.

At work, I'm struggling with feeling inefficient and having too much on my plate. Fact of the matter is, I get a lot done every day. It may not be what I thought I was going to get done - but that's not entirely within my control. I'm examining my work flows and trying to identify how I can cut out wasted time - I've got some ideas -just need to articulate them.

So yeah, I'm feeling good about myself. Though not everything's exactly as I'd like it to be, I'm taking steps to change it for the better.

    I enjoyed reading this, I had just sent a message to my accountablity partner, and was telling her that I blew it one day with a birthday party cupcake etc, but still the good choices are outweighing the bad.

    You *should* feel good about yourself - you are emoticon

    Don't forget to schedule in some time for play with the hubby and the lad - some time for giggles and laughter and no other goal than just feeling good.

    Tomorrow morning when you're doing that last check in the mirror before heading out, don't forget to take a long, hard look at yourself and realize that hot damn - you look good!

    Have a great weekend!
