21 days/day 1

Saturday, July 06, 2013

You know it is funny when I began this journey my goal was to lose weight. I mean wasn't that why any of us joined? Well I did with such dreams of reaching my goals. I was going to be so slim and trim, healthy, happy. But that is not what happens. What happens is we work hard, we sweat, we change our bad habits for good, we enjoy new foods, we learn new ways of cooking. Yup we lose, some of you may even reach your goals....I didn't all the way....but then you/me quit doing all the good and head right back to the old. The comfortable us, the easy us. We/me gain back what we lost plus. Do you give up? Nope you/me decide we liked the healthier us better so we struggle to get that back. The Aha moment, the excitement, the fun. But alas it isn't there. I mean we know what to expect, but it doesn't happen so what do we do from here?

We decide to join a friend or two and aim for 21 days of health. 21 Days of reaching our goals just one day at a time. What difference does this make you may wonder? A lot. You track all day the first day, just as I did, you put it all into Spark because that is what got you to close to goal the first time around, or because the WW plan just isn't working because you've worked it to death....but either plan you choose it works. For the one day you plan, you exercise, you get your water, fruits/veggies, it just all falls so nicely into place. So where to go from here? Well Day 2 of course. I mean this is 21 days to a new habit.

Today is day 2....I can do this
