200,000-249,999 SparkPoints 221,719

In Reverse

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I am going the wrong direction. I have been in a slump for most of September. I have gained to the point of being 200.5 yesterday morning. I really don't want to stay above that number! BUT, I know what to do and I'm not doing it. What's up with that?

I haven't been exercising.

I haven't been checking in with Spark in the mornings to get my head in the right place.

I haven't been tracking my foods consistently.

I haven't been making healthy food choices.

I've been spending too much time thinking about how hard it is to stay on track.


Compare that to where i WANT to be:

Checking in with Spark each morning to get my head in the right place.

Consistently tracking everything I eat and drink.

Making the most healthy food choices I can make.

Making exercise a priority and getting it done, at least 300 minutes each week.

Accepting that it will always be a challenge from time to time.


I know I can do this.

I know I am worth it.

I know I will get up, dust myself off, and get moving in the right direction.

    We all get sidelined, sometimes life happens to us, and sometimes our head gets in the way of our own successes. One of the people I respect most on Sparks is Jamielogical. She's a tenacious, determined woman who has lost a large amount of weight already and still keeps going. She's not only and inspriation, but she provides a very good foundation for me whenever I feel like I am slipping. One of my favorite quotes of hers is this:

    "The good news is you are still here and Sparking. As long as you are doing that, you are still in touch with your healthy goals. "

    You are still in touch with your healthy goals, watchmego, and you will get there. Keep sparking. You got this.

    Sometimes we need to rest, sometimes it's all too much and we let go for a little while. Then we decide this is NOT how I want to LIVE. So we pick ourselves up and continue on.

    Each beginning has it's start in the past. So you are not starting over. You know more about what works and what doesn't. You know the kind of dedication you need and have to make your goals happen. Remember 3 things. Start small and build. Make goals you can live with for now. Have Fun!

    It is easier to get off track than on. Take small steps and you'll find yourself back I track. Good luck!

    You've already taken the first step to getting back on track! You've done it before. You can do it again!

    I've been right where you are, getting your head back in the game can be the hardest part. But you can do this.

    You will do it. Step by step, moving forward. Self awareness is the first step towards your desire to change. I would suggest picking one thing to be consistent with as a base line and go from there.
