Read some interesting blogs this morning...

Thank you to all the faithful emoticon out there. I wish I had more time (well I know I should make it, its mine to control) to be a positive influence out in the world. I have decided to take more time in the Spark Community, to give back what I get from all of emoticon .

With my new job (PTL) I now have healthcare plan that includes a phone health advisor. So I signed up with a healthy weight coach which starts on Monday. She sent me a workbook (Cigna) that has forced me to document my eating habits in several areas and derive some realistic and practical goals. Have completed it up to the setting goals, which I plan to work on this weekend.

Yes, nothing was a surprise to me - but what is surprising is that I don't truly hold myself accountable. I let outside forces dictate my behavior and abdicate my own power to control destructive impulses.

Its not about will power. Its about the power of "I can".

    For me, will power is highly overrated. I can't resist temptation so it's about avoiding temptation . . . not having the irresistible food in the house (potato chips), not going to the restaurant where the irresistible food is available (French fries), not going to the mall with the irresistible food smells (cinnamon buns) etc. etc. My will power gets worn out waaaaaay too quickly!!

    I think we all have an inner saboteur that has volumes of reasons to make us stray. Congratulations on taking this step to discovery! I look forward to hearing about your successes in your future blogs.
