5,500-6,999 SparkPoints 6,435


Monday, August 05, 2013

This is the first time I have stayed with a health goal for more than thirty days. The first time I have gone for more than two weeks drinking water as my main beverage. The first time I have consistently incorporated exercise into a weight loss plan. The first time I have hope that this will work.

In July I clocked over five hundred fitness points. Not bad for the girl who didn't like to go outside, who was always the last one chosen for a team in school gym class, or who couldn't muster up the enthusiasm to be consistent even with activities I did like. Not bad for someone who is used to going with the flow and giving up easily. I didn't walk away from doing what would be good for my body.

I think all of this success is going to my head. I mean, today at work I had the courage to stand up for myself in a situation where I would have typically tried to run from the conflict. And you know what? It felt great. I felt like I was able to get my point across and remain firm, doing what was best for the people I serve, while still allowing the other party to walk away with dignity. I was able to make a difference, and that success is sweeter to me than a success I had last week which greatly benefited my company and the clients I serve. I was able to face the people in question later in the day without worrying if they were upset with me. I didn't walk away. I didn't walk away!

It's been a great week (month, actually) for me. My hope is for everyone here to have a great journey, hopefully accomplishing many firsts along the way.
