Sometimes, when somebody starts exercising, or starts "eating right", it's with complaints and grumbling and drudging and a general negative attitude. Focusing on all of the things they'll have to stop eating or how much earlier they'll have to start getting up to get their workout. Or how much fun other people will be having while they're stuck working out or eating only "rabbit food" or not enjoying that cocktail.
But not me. I jumped off the wagon two months ago and just as happily have jumped back on. I have this picture in my mind of a curly haired cute little girl skipping down the street in a little flouncy dress, excited to be going wherever it is she's going. And that's me. I'm excited to be back on this journey. It's where I feel like I'm supposed to be. It starts off slow at the beginning. Getting back into the routines, remembering to fit those workouts in early in the day so they're done and don't get forgotten or skipped. Remembering that I get a secret thrill when my numbers on the food log are below those max numbers I have set. Loving spinning that wheel at some point in my day and double loving logging my weight for the day and seeing that line on the graph go down. All of these reasons and more are why SparkPeople rocks and is my site of choice for the right tools for me for this journey.
So happy to be back. And that little girl? She's skipping along right beside me!
