23. Because the blood test is coming

Last time I went to the chiropractor, he asked me if I wanted to do another blood test and work with the homeopath again. I agreed, but decided to wait a month before I take the test. When I was going regularly, I was making slow progress, which was good. But then, one day I went in and saw a huge jump in my improvement! The difference was that I had significantly reduced my sugar intake between those two visits. This time, I figured if I am going to spend all the money and time required to do this, I am going to have them working on things that really need attention... not fixing things I am doing to myself every day because I think I need a candy bar.

To help SPARK the fire I need to get back on track, I plan to post a new reason for 30 days reminding me why I want to live healthier and lose weight.

23. Because the blood test is coming
22. To never wonder what my motivations are
21. Superficial rewards like SparkPoints and compliments
20. Breathing easier is better.
19. For energy to live the life I want.
18. Because it is only natural to judge a book by its cover.
17. Because I know the more successful I am, the more successful I will want to be. Success breeds success.
16. To live without pain without taking prescription ibuprofen several times each day.
15. To wake up easily.
14. To be the hero of my own story.
13. It feels so much better to be in control of my sugar addiction than to be controlled by it.
12. More small clothes fit in the washer/dryer than big clothes.
11. With more strength, greater flexibility, and less weight, I may find myself in less pain.
10. When I am outside more, I am sick less.
09. To reduce my rising cholesterol levels.
08. To be a positive influence on my diabetic husband.
07. I hate my double chin.
06. So I can easily reach my goal of finishing the 2014 Fight for Air Climb in under 40 minutes.
05. Regular exercise clears my head and evens my moods.
04. I feel more in control of my life when I take care of myself.
03. I liked it better when I fit in L shirts instead of XL.
02. When I exercise regularly, I have more energy.
01. When my face is thinner, I have a prettier smile.
