Well I got my fitbit last week and I have so enjoyed challenging myself. I may not be reaching the ultimate goal of 6000 steps per day, but I am working at beating my daily progress with each day. It's quite the challenge.
Found this quote and though it is cool!
For a long time I would not say that what I do is excellent, but within the past few weeks I am slowly starting to see my habits progressing into excellence, but I am not aiming for perfection; simply progress.
One really encouraging thing that happened to me this week is that enough people believed in me and saw things in myself that I didn't see. They nominated me as SP Motivator and now I am one. It is such an honor and I feel excited and humbled. I also feel stronger and inspired that people thought so well of me. I hope that doesn't sound arrogant. I was really surprised, because I have thought so little of myself and my accomplishments. I kept beating myself up for gaining so much weight. It turns out that that is perfectly ok and that losing weight doesn't make me a good person and gaining weight doesn't make me bad. This is a Huge Revelation for me!
I want to say
to all who nominated me. God bless each of you!

. Can't wait!
One last thing...I found out today that my insurance is going to cover a membership at the Local YMCA. I am going to check which one best suits my needs and incorporate some swimming or arthritis water aerobics. I know with my Fibro I have to start small. But getting started at all is progress for me!
That's my latest update. I'm happy with how things are going. I'm going to continue working on the negative self talk and remind myself that I am a winner. BTW I think Y'all are winners too!
