Keep on Truckin'

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I think I'm finally learning that I don't have to be addicted to a certain fitness routine.

(I just read a blog where a sparker just can't allow themselves NOT to work out for fear they'll lose momentum. I am in NO way judging my fellow Sparker. I'm just saying that way doesn't work for me. That's the beauty of SparkPeople . . different strokes for different folks. And so on, and so on, and...)

I want to be a willing participant on my Spark Journey towards better health - not a captive slave.

This past couple weeks (not long after I set my goal to lose another 10 pounds) I've had to deal with this shoulder thing, again. It's really cramping my style. But I know, if I don't listen to my body, I will pay. Big time trouble. But, rather than throwing the baby out with the bathwater (so to speak), I am trying to be consistent with what I CAN do . . . and using this time to check out other things. . . like a couple new recipes each week. But it's all working together towards my BIG plan.

So, no, the weight is not coming off like I'd hoped. . . . and I'm certainly not setting any land speed records in my journey. But I AM going to get there, just the same, because I am dedicated to my goal.

So, I'm just gonna keep on truckin . . .

The official definition of that phrase is: To continue or persist, regardless of circumstances or setbacks; to keep trying or striving towards a goal.

    I didn't know there was an official definition for that phrase. I like it though. It describes my journey too. You're attitude is wonderful. We're all truckin' right along with you. Of course, now I can't get the Dead song out of my head. Lol.

    I understand the 'shoulder thing' ........... Still going thru much pain in my neck and shoulders and it gets so tiring but I sooooo agree, I too will not become enslaved to exercise! ........... It is wisdom in knowing when to rest or back off ........... or be gentle: each of us differ from day to day ............... emoticon Hope you mend soon .......... No fun being in pain I know!

    I think the idea is to keep moving in ways that work for you!! Good luck with that shoulder - I also have shoulder problems and they really can cramp your style!
