Looking back on the last six weeks, I see a lot of ups and downs instead of steady progress on my goals. A lot of it has to do with stress at work and vacation thinking. I had family visiting for a couple weeks, and even though all of my children are currently focused on health and nutrition, I thought I should take a vacation from healthy eating. Just ridiculous!
And my answer for stress at work is to go in earlier and come home later, leaving no time or energy for exercise. The unhappiness also makes it easy for me to turn to food for comfort.
I have spent most of 50 years hiding the truth from myself. I am done with hiding. I am successful when I draw on my inner strength, my mental and spiritual toughness. That is what I commit to do the next 6 weeks:
I will pray & meditate at the beginning of each day to make that daily commitment to be the best I can be and making choices to reach my long term goals.
I will be productive at work, and then leave the problems there, leaving time for exercise and ME time.
I will give myself positive self-talk every day for the good things I do.
I have the ability and skills I need to accomplish anything I want to do. And I want to have a strong and healthy body!!
Writing this blog is such a good way to focus. I really appreciate how I always get great feedback and support from my Spark Friends!
